revealed to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam Pallium. But we think the whole thing into the column was revealed all at once.
That's what most scholars believe. But we're not for sure. We're not sure about it. So in fact, how obviously came out was it all at once, and this will add up as well. So just as a point that sometimes when we're talking about a pseudo revealed to the Prophet how to use the law to ascend, there's a high possibility that it wasn't all revealed all in one clump, it came in, in different stages, but the shorter shorter ones obviously did. And after the five swords were given to him out of here salatu salam Wa, he just stopped coming. There was there's no one else to Gibreel just stopped showing up.
And it went on long enough for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to start feeling a little bit worried.
Especially when it was early on, you're talking about the first, the first few months or the first few days of his prophecy, it is so awesome for God to stop coming all together and stop telling him anything. That was for him. I think in his mind, it was like this is too early. I still don't have, but I think he was being prepared for what the stoat his story was going to look like because he was probably he sought to reminisce maybe at some point, maybe waiting for further instructions, you know, were telling me okay, what is my next step? What do I do? What do I do next? And, and the what the next step, that part is not was not going to come? Gibreel was not going to bring him that. And
that's why the whole item right in Qatar, I mean, there was a reply to it, or there was a delay in Revelation for those early six months. Because he started talking about Islam, it is thought to Islam, he did he start explaining Islam, and he came up with a plan and he started going after it. And the people have already started to hear about the deen. And that's important for us to kind of make sure everyone understands that even when, even before he went public with Islam. Most people knew yet
most people in Croatia had an idea of what actually was going on. Because they were hearing about it. The prophet Ali Hassan was talking to certain people, some people were saying, Yes, some people were saying no. And of course, the people who will say yes, that's going to affect their lives, affect their families affect their behaviors, people are gonna see that those who said, No, we're also gonna go say, well, by the way, Mohammed brought this to me. And then that was going to become so it was becoming public common knowledge that the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam was doing this on the site
So he was he did come up with a plan, I'll show it all I'll share with you what plan he came up with Alia salatu salam. But the reason that why he was not there for six months is that he had to figure it out. You had you had to plan this on your own, the planning piece is on you, whether it works out or it doesn't.
Whether you get what you want out of it or not is going to be on this is your part, you have to fulfill it, we will give you the guidance in terms of the principles, the values, the teachings, the rituals will give you all that we're not going to give you, we're not going to tell you exactly what your next step is going to be.
It's not going to be okay.
I know the house take a right walk before I take a left and walk over it. No, none of that. It wasn't planned, it wasn't drawn out for him on either sides. And you'll be here for this number of years, you'll do this, this this and then you'll immigrating and go over there, none of that he didn't know how to use auto Sudan, this is important. Please understand this so that you can appreciate the story. Because the story is difficult to appreciate you don't comprehend this piece. He didn't know whether he was destined to be successful or not. He didn't know if he was going to actually get his message to where he's being asked to get it.
When he was gonna live long enough or not, meaning whether his people would accept or kill him. He did not know. And that's true. That's documented throughout the Quran. We have that a lot in the Quran where I think it's also I was being told that you may live you may not. You may you may it may work out it may not. So he was not given any confirmation that this is going to work out 100% No. If you think that's the case, then you will not be able to benefit from his story much on his tomatoes. Because if someone is told already look, yeah, it's gonna be hard, but you will make it eventually. Then there's nothing impressive about that. Yeah, they just have to take a knee and run the clock
and things will work out eventually. Maybe try a few things here and there if they make sense maybe not doesn't make a difference. No, he was not given those guarantees. He had no guarantees that this was going to actually
if you want more the Quran will later come and tell him stories where that was not the case.
The Quran will come and reveal stories and I'll share them with you where he's being told by the way this prophet killed this Prophet his people were punished this Prophet came up with no but so the prophet Isaiah was being prepared but this may very much very likely not work out at all. It's on you though. It's your responsibility to take it and spread it not just to the Ishmaelites as maybe but it's like you were given like most artists that was not told to take his message and give it to everybody knew there was a se and I'm not exactly you know, yeah, here. It was today, man. No doubt would none of these prophets were told take this message and spread it across the earth. No, he
would totally take this message to Bani Israel Eve teach them. Other groups will have other prophets, but Mohamed Salah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told take this to everybody. You're one person in Mecca this has to reach every corner of the earth. Everyone has to hear about this figure
figured out, I don't know how that's going to be up to you. I'm not going to tell you how I'll give you the message, we'll give you the teachings. He was given those stuff, right? We went over to Modesto, they the,
the mission of conduct, he was given the spiritual needs and so little in Muslim, he was given the ethics or the carry the ethical compass. He was given these things he's got he was told what he was, what he was going to stand for. So the fact he was given the key, what everything is gonna be based upon the basic the basic themes that he's going to use in his data, but he wasn't told what the next steps were going to be.
was delayed for a while?
And five months into it Kure started to start to mock him a little bit. Where's your new material? Nothing. Raise your bleep not bring anything new, but you ran out? It dried up. Right? They start saying color hoorah. Boo.
WAT DA Hora boo. And whoever they're mocking him, your Lord forgot about you neglected you doesn't care about you anymore. He's too busy for you. You don't matter enough. Some Allah hottie as I was saying. And of course, Gibreel is not coming.
You know, he's trying his best. He's planning things out. But he's not coming. There are no answers. There's nothing coming through the pipelines. So he started to wonder, did he do something wrong? He started to wonder, did he? Was he supposed to do something different? So I wonder what is he is he actually actually cause Allah? Did he bring it upon himself? Allah subhanaw taala as wrath or anger, did a loss of 100 actually neglect him? He had these questions. He's human. And by the way, I always share a lot of the aspects of the story that exists within the authentic
books that reflect the the human humane piece, not because I don't want to, it's because I'm not sure if people are even ready to hear some of the stuff you need at the beginning. There are narrations in Behati with the Prophet alayhi, Salam witness stood on a mountain and started and just stood there wondering whether he continued to live or maybe just throw himself over a mountain. You never did it yourself. Somebody thought of it. This was so heavy and so difficult and so stressful for him he sought to Assam during this period. He wasn't sure what is this real? Is he actually is he seeing things he questioned himself? And because he was someone like that, by the way this worked
out. People will question themselves, not to the point where they become depressed or lose functionality. People will question themselves hold themselves accountable to the people who actually make it far in life. And that's why he was chosen for this honor, he sought to assess the level of self critical critique the level of self criticism and self analysis and self accountability that he carried out he started unparalleled. And he wondered all the time, like am I am I not doing this right? He had he not been like that. It would be very easy for all of what was going on to go to his head really easily, pretty quickly. He was being told things later on backed
up by Allah's power and the Quran of his status of his whole of his character of it. You could have he could have, he could have filled them up really quickly. And he could have turned to someone very different. But he wasn't like that. That wasn't his character. He refused to be like that. He refused to be someone who allowed vanity and arrogance into into his system. He he completely refused it. He was strong. He was confident he was clear. He knew what he stood for. But he was not someone who was going to allow these things. So he questioned himself quite a bit, but it hurt him. He was in distress. And this was by design. Allah subhanaw taala held back revelation until the
Prophet alayhi salam was in a state of distress. So he could reveal to him to suit us to teach him two other pieces that were really important that he needed to know before he was going to continue moving, moving forward with things. What are the students that were revealed right after this, this delay of or hey,
we recite them a lot in Madrid. We're always told that the beginning or the beginning of Cassatt and will festal as they're called in the Quran, the short and comprehensive. The Sunnah, is that no matter how little of the Quran, you know, you still know those ones, you still have them. He had a boho shahada, you saw just don't reveal to him each one with an extremely important concise, very specific message for him to learn how to use Latos I'm I always tell people, so the Baja
it tells you what to do when you're facing difficulties when it's hard when you're when life is becoming a little bit unbearable, sort of Baja gives you gives you a road map. It's beautiful. And I want to share it with you just because I think I think it's worthy of you kind of thinking about learning. And so you understand what the prophet Isaiah saw some actually took away from the Sunnah being revealed to him here, here's
what he's going to do with it. Here's what you do with it. So first of all, if you look at the two oaths that are being taken in the Surah, a Baja is when the sun is in the middle of the sky, the brightest moments of the day. Were lelee either a soldier and the night when it covered soldier covers when it covers everything, the darkest moment of the day, which is what which is what life is you have the peaks and you have the Corps, top and bottom up. Sometimes it's going up really nicely and sometimes it is not
three things he was top three statements he was given on his software so that these statements are for you as well.
When you're going through difficulties or you're struggling, know these three statements number one, Mao, a dakara, bucola. Kala, your Lord never forgot about you never neglected you and he never will. That's never the case. No matter how much you're suffering you can ever say to yourself, well, he doesn't care anymore. Never Mao a dog, that's never the case. It's never the case. You're not allowed to think that as a Muslim, as a human being are not allowed to tell yourself. No, my lord, my lord forgot about me, he doesn't care about me never Mao, a doc or a book of America that you always bring that back the moment you feel abandoned, or you feel weakened, or you feel like things
aren't coming the way through the way you want them. And it's just one difficulty after the other. That's the first statement that you are comforted by within this sort of MOA dot, I got a book on that. But number two, well, hello to highroller Kameena Lulu, and what is coming at the end is always going to outweigh whatever it is that you're going to get here. Meaning whatever it is that we give you here, giving it to you, your milky ammo will be better. Whatever it is that you want to JW didn't get getting your milk, the AMA or
whatever you wanted something from Allah subhanaw taala you ask God, I'll give it to me, God gives it to you.
How do you not give it to you, whatever it is, and he gave it to your milk, the AMA always better. It's always gonna be better like getting your milk and it'll always be better, you'll appreciate it more. And every person you almost know when they come and they're told you could have given this dunya or alcohol or give it to you in dunya will wish that they got it and I'm not in dunya every human being no matter what it is, what it is you're asking for. It could be whatever it is, if you're giving it Antonia and not giving an Oscar on the Day of Judgment, you'll regret that and you'll wish you were given it on the Day of Judgment. Because ask Allah the end, the hereafter is
always better for you than the older. So whatever it is that you felt you missed out on or you're deprived of or is whatever struggling or pain that you went through that you wish you didn't go through.
It was always better and that's just a rule of thumb that says there's no exception to this.
Well, so for your oblique or Buka fatawa and you will be given until you are satisfied
until you are until you are satisfied until you there's nothing Yokoyama you will be keep he'll keep on giving you subhanho wa Taala and giving Charlotte here from Ohio Jenna May Allah make us all from the hills Jenna Who do I mean? When you go there, he will keep on giving you and giving until you are saturated.
Until you don't you're you're satisfied. There is nothing left. There is no pain left. There is no suffering left. There's no agony left. There's nothing left. You are happy.
Actually Allah subhanaw taala after you ask for everything and gives it to you he will say Don't you want this? Like oh yeah, I didn't actually think about that. Right? I'll give you that too. What about this? You think about this, you want this? Yeah, get that take that as well. Until you are fully there's nothing you're still fully satisfied. Whatever happened in dunya in terms of pain is gone. The Prophet it is also and tells us later on Hadith paliotta
Be anime early dunya yo Mel piano that he says Muslim for yoga muscle.
Fill Nury OMSA
the bring the person who was most spoiled, the most spoiled person in life the person who, who literally was born with the was it it was it was a golden spoon. And they lived? No. It worked out perfectly. They didn't have to go through nothing. Obviously if they did well with that they'd go the agenda. Bella say that some of those one of the prison didn't. So they lived a life of perfection of requiring nothing. Your milk Yama, they are dipped in Jahannam for a second. And then they're asked Have you ever eaten a man? Have you ever seen a good day for call mouth or eaten a man? I've never known happiness in my entire existence to be a se duniya for yoga mats to fill
Jannetty of arms. And then you bring the person the most miserable human being to ever live. And no, it's not you. All right? It's not you. I know you think it's not you. You're not the most miserable human being that ever lived. You're fine. You're doing very well, for amongst the 1% in this world. Here we have opportunities that we have Allah subhanaw taala is putting us in a place where we have a lot and thus we have a lot to offer after afterwards and we have a lot of responsibilities to carry. But the person whose life was just one misery after the other one sad story after the other you'll run to people like that. Especially if you are in medicine and you run into people who were
very difficult for them and then they're dipped in Jannah for a moment for your file hell or Atia chakra and have you ever seen a moment of suffering in your life for your whole Ummah are you to Shaka and I've never been upset in my entire existence.
Well, so for your clique or a Buddha, you'll be given until you are satisfied. Those are the three statements then you start asking the questions.
Let me educate your team and for our we're we're Jada Boyle and for Heather, we're Jada in the Oregon becomes in How could you even think that? How could you allow yourself for a moment to think that your Lord forgot about you or neglected you or that what was coming is not better than what is and that you will not be given until your side how would you allow yourself to think that did he not find you an orphan he's speaking to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and then for our and then he made sure someone was there taking care of you and that he brought you close and made sure there was always a hug there was always a hudon Oh
always someone there to hug you and to take care of you. He went from his mother to his from Halima to his mother to his grandfather and his grandmother to his uncle always someone there to take care of him. And then you breed came up came it came in with a hug. So you understand why, well my gender cowboy and for her Did you know also find you misled? misguided you didn't know where to go? Like your you had questions about, about existence, you didn't know what to do. And then he guided you. Where would ya eland for Elena and he found you someone who had a lot of expenses and no wealth. And he made sure that he gave you that what you owe them and he made sure that you gave he gave you
wealth. And that goes for all of us. How many times has he taken care of you? How many times have you been at the verge of of losing it, it brings you back and time and time again in our lives. We're in a situation your team is the person who likes social support, right? A ball is the person who lacks intellectual or spiritual guidance support. And the illegitimate person who lacks financial support. He brings the three types of support that we need at all times. The social, the spiritual or religious. And then the financial How many times have you found you in that position? And that's what your team your team can be very quick. I have a lot of money. You can have an orphan
who inherited a lot of wealth, but they're lacking something different. lacking something sometimes much more important than that.
So what do you do for Amelia team? Bella? dockerhub see what he's telling him is autosens Look, are you Is this your dark moment? Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Yes, you're up. This is a dark moment for me. All right, no, the following. Your Lord will never neglect you or forget about you. What's coming is always better than what is right now and you will be satisfied.
And don't allow yourself to ever go down that path because how many times have you found you in so in need of social support and spiritual support and financial support and bailed you out?
So what do I do we all have been at your lowest moment that you're in your darkest moments you give familia tema Fela Takahara. So you look for the orphan and you take care of the orphan and you don't and you make sure there's no there's no there's no sorrow in their hearts. You remove the sorrow in their hearts. Well I'm Messiah Illa Allah Tala and the person who is misguided because you are an orphan so you go take care of them. While Messiah and the person who has questions, the person who was misguided who has misled who was lost and has questions for that, no, don't be upset because they have questions. You weren't misled just like them answer their questions and make sure you take
care of one vignette and Mattila Becca had this and you take the wealth that you have for HUD did not talk about Hadith doesn't mean to speak, even though that's how we use it Hadith of the Prophet Allah is the only what he said, or what he said and what he did and what he accepted. And when he acknowledged and when he left everything in his life. For 100 means use mean distribute, make sure others find it as well meaning meaning bring joy to others with it in your darkest moments. Serve others. That's how you get out of hardship. Are you in a bad place them in bad place, then do more for others. Go serve others the way you would like to be served. I'm in pain, go look for someone in
pain and help them. That's how you get rid of your pain. I am sad, I'm upset, go find someone who's sad and upset and help them and serve them the way you want to be served. And that will help you to don't be when you're in a dark position or a dark moment. You don't allow that to overcome you and then debilitate you and hold you down. This was this lesson he had to learn because a lot of this was coming. So much of this was coming into his life it was me had to have an early example before it got too gruesome. Because before he got brutal here six months know why. Feel the pinch. And he felt it. Now he was struggling. He wasn't sure what to do next. He had nothing. He was wandering he
was didn't know what Okay, now you feel the pain. This is what you do.
You know the three statements? No, these statements are, make sure they're clear to you. I find that they're very therapeutic by the way, they're beautiful.
They're not forgotten. Yes, you're going through a difficult time but you're not forgotten. You're not forgotten. You never will be
what's coming. The hereafter is always better than this. So it's okay.
And you will find satisfaction, you will find satisfaction. Remember how many times you were taking care of so don't allow the situation that you're in right now to lie to you and tell you well, I'll never He doesn't care about me. No, no, you've been taken care of before. We've taken care of you before. So don't Don't worry. So what do I do in this then when you're in hardship, you just serve you serve, bring the best out of yourself. Bring the best of you. When when you're when you're struck suffering and struggling. That was the lesson of
dealing with hardship because a lot of it was going to be dished out to him and he has talked to us a lot if it was coming down to this is the first six months of his prophecy. Yeah, 22 years and six months left. Most of it was going to be difficult, if not all of it. The majority of it was going to be extremely difficult. This was there to kind of that's why we decided all the time. That's why you're always going to
Is something from Abuja to oneness. Baja is the easiest to go to. It's not because people remember it. No, it's because of the beauty of the message that it carries within it for us and what we do with it. And so the shutter as well.
So the shutter similarly, but a little bit of a different twist.
He's asking a question, I'm not sure. I feel like Cassandra, no one starts a sentence like that. No one begins a sentence with saying, why did we not do this for you? That's not how you begin a conversation.
If I'm going to have a conversation with you, that type of speech will come somewhere in the middle, we'll go back and forth a little bit, you will make a few claims. And then I'll say, Why are you saying that? Did I not do this for you, you have to make a few claims upfront, or if I come and I start saying that to you, it has to be based on a few claims you already made. Before that I'm coming right now. It's a rebuttal or talk to you about to the so there's something missing. So to show what's missing the things he may be felt and thought of for a moment on a hill salatu salam,
he was getting worried.
He was getting a little bit too worried.
Worried about everything about the stuff that he can't control. It's okay to worry about the stuff that you can control, worrying about your performance, worrying about how you're doing, how much effort you're putting in, how much time you're spending, it's okay to worry about that a little bit. That's good. But is there any benefit in worrying on the stuff that you can't control?
We do all the time. We always worry, it's not human. We worry about the stuff we can't control. But sometimes a certain degree of worry can be problematic. So the shadow is here to say Rasulillah. Don't worry. Don't waste your time worrying stuff you can't control. Just focus on your task. Allah knows what it's like, as if he's worrying a bit too much. And Allah saying why? I'm not sure how did I not bring ease in your heart towards this message? Because at the beginning, you were scared you ran down the mountain, then you loved it. Did I not bring you that? Well, Donna oncosec Did I not also tell you I will forgive your sins.
I love the uncle Bubba, like the sins that you feel are weighing heavily on your back. That's how he was out of your soul to Islam. He's a person who felt the weight of his own sin. And then you asked, well, what sin did he have? I used to swim and I say I have no idea. I don't know. I don't know what to tell you. Because the examples I have in the Quran are not really I can't call Allah calls them sinful I can't call them sinful. Because I if I if I were doing those things, I'd be very proud of myself. Like if I had the level if I had the ethical standards that he had, at least for the sins he was making are good deeds for me if I considered them good deeds because of the nobility he had when
you know what he said, but that's how he was you someone who worried about his sins he worried about whether you're gonna be forgiven or not.
What I find now like I did or did you know also elevate your status and tell you that, that your name will always be associated with mine's jealous and Allah you say shadow Allah, Allah in Allah, you have to follow with anna Muhammad Rasulullah that in that, in that association, affiliation will continue forever.
So then he gets specifically for him for in number three. So stop worrying within each difficulty, you will find enough ease to get through it. This it doesn't say that after difficulty there will be ease Okay, please understand this because that's important. It's not saying that after every difficulty there will be East know, some difficulties with end with death. Some difficulties, the end of them will be death. So there's no ease after it unless you're going to call with death itself ease, which is hard to say. Because that's really not some difficulties go on for a long time. And they don't, you don't actually get that, you know,
aha moment when you're outside and you get to celebrate sometimes that's the end. When he's saying Subhana wa Tada, there's not a promise and after difficulty, there'll be ease. He's saying that with each difficulty within each difficulty, man Oh sir Ma, not bad. Bad is after MA with that, with each difficulty, you'll find enough ease to get through it. He will make sure that within all difficulties you'll there's ease in it enough for you to survive enough for you to persevere and make it through. So the first one is sort of shorthand for the prophet Isaiah sought some specifically the first there is attaching it to the as before it, and I'm not sure. Oh, Allah Anna,
what I thought I know like, did we not do these things for you? Why are you worrying for in no manners to use? So I know that with all of your difficulties, you'll find ease you'll get through it. And then the second idea there that is the second is the law. That's the law. That is the ongoing law in them and also to use the law for everybody. Because if you didn't put that there then we may you may be led to believe that specific for him it has taught us that within all his difficulties, there'll be ease but you know, no, in no manners to do so. This is a ongoing law. And it's for all of us with each so what why worry then
what why waste time worrying about what if i What if that happens? What if that person is gone? What if I get sick? What if I can't What can you control any of this stuff?
You got control in the way you're worrying about? It's wasting your energy, it's wasting your time it's making you feel worse. You're less functional. You're you're less happy. We're all
Yeah, I'm quite guilty of this. I'm guilty of this too.
We all worry about stuff that we can't change.
Just know this idea in our mind, oh seducer with all difficulty there'll be enough ease. They don't worry. So what do I do then you're up for Alta found sub, the moment you're done doing the first task fun sub move on to the, to the to the next, move on to the next focus on what you're here to do. Focused on your, your mission on your role. What are you here to do as I do it? Finished task number one, move on to number two, move on to number three, keep on pushing, keep on moving forward fader for all that fun stuff also meaning putting more effort. Or it could also mean to stand up in prayer. Either or, but as far as I'm putting more effort is what the movers city and
the majority was, was sitting like, and I agree that that's more appropriate way to hold up bigger federal government as you're doing it, you draw yourself closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And God Draw yourself closer to your Lord in that process. And that's what's going to show our teachers do not worry. There will always be enough ease to help you overcome the hardship that you're going through. So focus on what you're here to do. And that's why for six months, there was no way this had to be an important moment for him it assaulted him know hey, here's the two Surahs never forget. You're gonna need them a lot. And he did. That's why in my in my understanding of things, the reason
he recited them in McGraw was so much was because he needed them. We do it because it's short and easy. But I don't that's not why he did it. The reason he was always in Melbourne to recite the last few sutras and and commonly struggled with Hollywood lady that said, yeah, and then in the second book, it was because he needed those verses, he needed to remind himself of the teachings of the of the values of the principle of the actual learning points. And that's the beauty of learning the Quran properly, is understanding when he when he did things out of your slot, there was time he didn't do them like we do them for the the least amount of effort but no, he didn't because he he
wanted something out of them. He recited with a bow honey, remember your mind remembered how it is he was supposed to deal with these very difficult times. You understand?
he Subhanallah it's the people who go through these things that can appreciate what I'm going to say. And maybe many of our brothers and sisters and brothers are capable understanding this because most of us can't. He lost his mother, his father before he was born his mother and his grandfather and his grandmother and his uncle and his other uncle Hamza and other uncle Harris and his cousins, Aveda and Harris, and he lost his adopted son XID. And he lost his wife Khadija, and he lost two of his male children at young ages, they lost all of his daughter, Xena, and Raphael and CUSUM. And he lost his is relative Java. Have you thought of everyone, everyone who was in 18 deaths 18 direct
relatives in his lifetime money his thought was he buried 18 of them.
How he woke up with a smile every day is always difficult for me to understand. But I think it's because he understood this stuff. It's going to be hard. It's going to be hard. So he reached deep. He went back to these verses he understood they'll always be the there'll be ease in it what's coming is going to be better so don't worry about things. Just keep on doing your thing keep on being the best person you can be keep on serving. And he did it he's still out there. But that's that's the message here that we need to take time and really think about for the first Muslims
like this part of the sealer has been
the first person ever.
Anyone want any takers? Who was the first person ever to be Muslim to accept his to accept his Dawa?
Khadija Khadija to cover all the law under the first person to accept his message she believed in his message before he did.
She accepted what he was saying before he even knew what he was saying he she accepted who is destined to be before he even was sure who is going to be so Allah Hi Samson Khadija Cobra you're gonna talk about what I thought about what aka what aka was a more how you didn't need work. I was always really already a believer in Allah subhanaw taala for him, doesn't even he doesn't he doesn't need that piece. He didn't live it he died didn't next morning he didn't he didn't stay long.
What I thought was already behind he was already there. He didn't need to be brought into this. Khadija the first believer out of men the first person will Bucha or the Allahu Allahu Allah. From Awali from people who who did not who are not from Qureshi, they didn't Hadith from the youth. The first person I even thought it will be Allah Juan. These are the first.
These are the first first for Muslims.
You can see the diversity of them.
You have adults, you have children. You have foreigners. You have people who are local. You have many of women.
You can say well, he did he just talked to his family. First, he will talk to his family first. But that's not why he spoke to these first four. No, these four not because they were close. No, there was a reason for each and every one
of Him because He will speak to his family he will bring his family together he'll try and it will always work. But these four there was something much more special about Khadija I don't have to explain to you the special. How special Khadija Allahu Anhu Cobra Alia said I'm was I don't need to go into that that was the that's already been made clear through the last couple of lessons. Oh the Allah who I know is the reason he was able to take these steps forward. He was the first Muslim the first Muslim and Islam was a woman
you can consider him the first Muslim cuz he's the Prophet alayhi salatu salam you could if you want to but he's the Prophet alayhi salatu was the first person to accept after was a woman Khadija Allah Juana and then as far as we know so buckle up so do call the Allahu anha right I put a few things up there to kind of for you to talk about his name is Abdullah had been a Summon, know that just for your own neighbor, because we we only know him as a as Abu Bakr. His name is Abdullah ibn Earthman. And if you go on his desktop it's been
it's been incredibly sad if you team and then even more so be more more right is one of the profit either you saw two times grandfather so if you go back to his nest egg, you'll find it more in the academy rate divided the Philippine American mother banana, so you'll find Abubaker after the sixth ancestor he meets the profile that you thought was central. He's not a first cousin. He may be a sixth cousin is quite a bit far away. Oh Becca was his best friend Ali, his Salatu Salam o worker was his friend before Islam they were friends the difference of their ages two years the Prophet alayhi salam was two years older than obika, the Allah azza wa jal called One who is Latos and his
brother Alex himself says about a worker
is helpless in his in his Sierra Club, Nicola is a murderer oh two Islami in Canada who were in the cupboard to an o Tala. Dude, I never talked to anyone about Islam, except there was a couple a couple one meaning a little bit of a delay. Tonight did a little bit of hesitation in Abubakar except alberca. Ma endow to who for now okay man who Oh man, aka man who while I did while I'm Yet Allah awesome Bill Cole. The moment I spoke to him, he did not hesitate. See, there is no delay.
He did not mumble the words he didn't make a mistake. He didn't he didn't stutter any he said he was ready. He says La ilaha IL Allah was just waiting. He knew it was the case. He just needed guidance. There are a lot of people like that in the world. There Right? Like they're right there. They know that somewhere deep inside, they know that's the case. It can't be anything else. It has to be like the law. They just need a bit of help. Just that that independent worker ma Solomon. He never He never believed in the entirety of his life. He never worshipped him. He never accepted them. He just didn't know exactly what the right thing was going to be. He didn't have the clarity what was going
what needed to happen?
Is it not interesting that it was his friend that he spoke to first?
I find it fascinating. Some people say Oh, well, he talked to his friend.
No, it's not. It's not an advantage. It's a disadvantage. You're claiming prophecy? Is the first person you go to is your best friend. The person who knows you the most. The person will call it call you out on your What are you doing? Your What's
your profit? Well?
What are you talking about?
What have you been doing? I know you. Yeah. So understand who he was on here. Salatu Salam boubakeur knew him. So when he said Yeah, Roberto. Oh here LA. I was given a relation Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah said La ilaha IL Allah, a shadow Allah, Allah illAllah. Now the second he didn't need the Prophet Allah so did not need to complete the action x actual action of Dawa. He didn't have to actually go through his whole spiel he didn't have to. He just told him I was given I've been given revelation of life.
In the line with you don't walk, walk, I'm behind you. And from that moment, on what Allah who I never left his side, never left his side.
It's a this, I love this. I can't talk about this friendship, I don't talk about it, you get a very emotional. It's just the beauty of the beauty of this friendship, Allah, he just, it's just something. It's really nice. It's hard to find friends in life. The older you get, the more difficult will be.
Trust me on this. The older you get, the more difficult it will be. To make friends and to have actual people that you can trust people you can set low standard, but you'll lose a lot of people along the way. We're lucky to lose so many people along the way. That's how life is. And some people you don't want to lose weight you lose anyways. And some people you have to give up on it. Some people you have to kind of take a step away from. It's hard to find someone like this. It's hard to have a friendship like this. Where the Prophet Allah you saw the sun was asking him of some he was asking him something hard. Believe in the fact that I am a prophet and he didn't hesitate. And it
wasn't like he was a secondary Muslim. Some guy in the background no tobacco.
He was there often. He never left his side. He was the first color of his honey but Rasulillah
in the narration had been
Hashem as in the Sierra, where the prophet Allah salatu salam would be they with the Sahaba and they would find like a pool, not really a pool. It's like an old Well, Arab Arabian, well, so it was wide, and they would go in they take a swim, and prophit Assad was done with Joe can you say? Conlon? Yes but it also Hadith every person swim towards their friend, their best friend, and the Prophet Allah. So if I said about how Rasulullah Isla ubica the Prophet of Islam, MITSUBA god no Sahibi me and my friend in me, My friend and I said Allah, Allah Sadhguru Salam. O Baca would hear these words on the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and immediately he would go and perform Dawa
immediately. I swear to Allah, that the day Abu Bakr made Dawa, that day when he made Dawa, he had a fraction of the knowledge of Islam that you have today.
you know way more about Islam right now than he did at that moment by far like there's no comparison. There's no comparison. Yet he went and he brought beat Alibaba listen to these names, and Earth man even have fun inside even everywhere costs. And Abdul Rahman Ibn Aoife and so even Zaid and Zubaydah Mila one and fall Hyman Obaidullah, you're hearing these names, and I will obey the Amendola
the ashram oversharing Jana, eight of seven of them he brought the Allahu Anhu or the Hebrew brought them to Islam. Even he did this in the first two days. The first two days he would bring these people to Islam, Radi Allahu Anhu care,
yellow suit Allah, they want to take shahada with you, for you by your own rasool Allah Allah Allah sang is
it's not about the knowledge. It's not about how much you know, it's how much love you have. That's that's that's the difference. Wasn't it's not the knowledge, it's the love. He had, he had passion. He had compassion. He understood what this story was about. He was proud of it. He loved it. He wanted it to go to others. People felt that people felt it, they felt it. They felt what he was bringing, but the Aloha and so they accepted Islam. We know I know more about as anyone here any person here knows more about Islam than he did at that moment, or the Allahu Anhu. At that moment. Obviously, he's are one of the great masters of the Islamic tradition. So he was a scholar of Islam
later, but I'm talking about this early moment when Wow, there was only four or five students revealed anyways. So what could he have known? There's so much that that was not even talked about yet. But he brought these people. He says if not only did he was he waiting for Islam. He had love for it. And not only that, he knew where to go to. He knew I know who to speak to. I know who is who is like me who was similar but the Allahu Akbar.
Allah was a scholar of his genealogy. He was a very well known businessman, by the way, was not known
to you and I, he's known as Sahib Rasulillah. And as I've said, I'm 33 He's from Africa. That's how we know him. But the people in Croatia knew him. He was more famous than the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was a prophet, it is awesome was a was a known individual with in certain realms that he was not. And he didn't, he didn't seek fame, so he didn't have a lot of it. He didn't care for data, Nadella even cared for being with the people, the politicians and the leaders. He didn't care for that stuff. He was always on the ground working with people who are in need, either yourself or just that was a personality, and were both good, on the other hand, was very well known. He had a very
fluid he had a flourishing businesses very wealthy, he knew people he was impeccable ethics. So people respected him and loved him. He was a he was a thorn in the side of Qureshi for the first 13 years because I like to start to sound didn't just have the people who were previously slaves or people who are poor or weak. No, he had Abdullah Abdullah bin Abi to half which is the name of his father, Abu Bakr them he was very well known or the Allahu Allahu Allah.
And it made a difference for him. It is so AutoSum having Abubaker there. That's why towards the end of his life,
he was very sensitive about alberca. No one could
upset. No one could have eaten, Ahmed. Well, Omar Mahato, and a worker, they became very close friends, obviously from spending time with the Prophet alayhi salam later, and they argued, and they were talking about something they argued, and a worker apparently said something that was not nice to her, and I'm gonna get upset.
And he walked away. And I work I told them, Carlos, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said I'm sorry. You know, I'm a captain walking. He didn't accept the apology. So I'm not gonna get upset. He got upset that I didn't accept his apology. So he goes to the Prophet and his assault was until zero Sula. And he just would happen and I asked him and he's not I think, men the relationship between me and my brother Omar because he got upset. So I'm going to comes he's thinking he's going to be
get his rate from Abubaker the Prophet isn't gonna see how Obama made a mistake. So the Prophet ALLAH is talking about upset his face turned red
because the highlighter actually saw heavy you're not gonna leave my friend alone. Aria.
I tell you to come.
I came to you for Colton cadmium. And you said, you told me you're a liar. What Connolly So doc.
If he told me you're truthful, Well, we're certainly the family. He went early he and he gave me his wealth and gave me his family behind him. I later actually saw him, leave my friend away. Of course, Kappa Alpha hadn't bothered. No one ever spoken anything to him or the law and after that moment,
his love for him said Allah Allah CIBJO Salam was genuine and it was sincere, it was based on based on something he saw in him, he would say the man of Ibaka is an ummah on its own, the Iman overcome and the amount of the Almighty worker or the Allahu Anhu blah, blah. Say it now, Zaid, even Hadith them. I don't have a long story for say, I don't know this story. All I know is that there's a God Allah who chose the Prophet Allah, you saw him over his own family, when he was given the option to go back to your family live with them. And he said, No, I stay with him. The story I told you a couple of weeks ago. So for as I know, I never imagined it would be difficult for the for him to
accept that the Prophet alayhi salam was going to dish out to him. He was the first Muslim that was foreign was not from Croatia.
And then saying that even putative Lee, how old was it? Anyone know?
He was around, he's around 10. You don't have to use seven and time again. Numbers are a little bit taken with a grain of salt. Most scholars are 1010 10 years old, 10 years old. Who's 10? Here? Yeah, 10 years old. The raw data you saw to Islam, had you been living in his time was willing to give Dawa to you?
He did not overlook you. He did not ignore you. He didn't think that 10 meant you weren't ready, or that you weren't worth the time of explaining things to know. Because 100 Zubaydah were younger.
about God spoke to 100 Zubaydah. They're both younger than Ali. At least most scholars believe that some say they're a year older, but they're within that age group, for sure.
And let me show you why he spoke to me. He didn't speak to every 10 year old. He didn't go around knocking on doors and speaking to 10 year olds. He chose them. There was a reason why he spoke to Ali and so you'll see the reason. So he calls upon Satan Ali, and explains to him what it is that he he's offering what Revelation is and he starts to explain to him Islam. So he listens
for color Nam. There any overkill, give me some time to think pathumwan stuff and then he went for a day. And you'll come back the next day because I believe if I told
you about costume, I am I'll put
the profit it starts on his name, I will costume. So at that point, he wasn't Rasulullah to him yet. Dalia salatu wa salam, ala volcanism, Elia Martell. Bahria. Can you repeat certain things you said yesterday to me? So the Prophet Allah is Allah will repeat certain things to him. The Coulomb, Danny in the lead me it will go come back to 30 Bacala called the cattle bar. He said this yesterday. He's actually processing all the information. I don't have all the details of what he asked about, but he came back and he was like, what about this piece? You said something about that he's processing it after the third day but I totally Castleberry Potaka you said this, you said that for your a duality
Rasulullah and explained to him again for calling them a shadow Allah either in the Allahu niqab do who want to sue, and he gives us you had saved it at 10 years old. At 10 years old, it is the number one ally would offer his data the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and full acceptance. The reason he chose him at 10 because he was yeah, he was 10 The number is 10.
The number of years he has been on the planet is 10. But the age of this was a little bit different. It was much more mature.
It was something different. And say now you're the only one who would immediately become one of the people who performed Allah and he had a job. And his job was to bring people in who are from outside of Mecca to the Prophet alayhi salam safely, he would linger around the Kaaba looking for people who maybe don't want to say out loud that they're there for and you bring them in? And I'll tell you the story of Islam, or maybe in a few weeks as well. Are we coming close? I'll give you a little bit of time.
So what are we going to do? So let me explain it. This is important.
Break down for you the plan. This is his plan out of his soft twist and on his plan
is that the first three years of prophecy the first three years, he was going to make it selective. Dawa is not secretive. Doug. I always make this distinction. I tried to get people to understand it because it's the Arabic word Sydney doesn't always mean secret. It means selective to I think it's a problem of translation, which is why people think it's No, it wasn't secret. People knew he was a he was claiming prophecy. As I said, they were seeing people accept Islam and other people who are being pitched the idea saying no, people were talking, they understood what he that he was claiming something out of his salt was that he had the Quran people were listening to it. It was a selective
for me. He was not going to go public. There's a difference when you're living in a state whether you go public with something or you keep it low key, meaning the first three years he was not inviting everybody to Islam.
Right. It wasn't an open invitation. No. It wasn't based on whether you want it to be Muslim or not. No. The first three years were based on whether he wanted you to be Muslim or not the difference here is the difference. After three years well
You know, it'll be it'll be open for everybody. But this has always been a really important point, in my opinion,
that he built a core group.
He built a core group.
In order for stuff to work, he needed a core group to work with. You have to bring them in, and they had to educate them. And he had to make sure that they were.
Well, that's the question. I was asked this question when I was eight, by a teacher, and Allah used to carry
this question lives with me till this day. He asked me this question in a letter from Robert Alladhi. But beautiful gentleman, but he asked me, he said, he told me this. If you were alive and those three years, what do you have chosen? You said, Allah, Allah, Allah. And Allah, he killed me. It's like, this arrow hit me right in right in my heart. I couldn't I till this day, I can't answer that question. And I don't know. And I don't think so. But I would like to believe maybe. And I think that's the question you should ask yourself as well. What do you have? What do you have chosen? You? Would you have told them about go talk to Fula?
What do you we have gone to you and say, See, and offered it to you? He did that for people. Some people said no, by the way, he offered to Abuja early on and we just had no, offered there was a few and as well they said, No, you offer it to certain people.
What do you have chosen you?
Would I and you, would you and IB people shall say Inshallah, then surely you would have shown no show he wouldn't be would have been nice to Nice to imagine. So. But actually go beyond that. Did you have a criteria? Or was it?
Just okay, that guy? Was it random? Or did he have? Was he looking for certain things? The scholars have looked at this topic. This is not my work County. So there's the scholars have looked at this topic, and they've come up with a couple of characteristics that I'm hoping to, do we have the Kahoot or do not have a clue today. We're good to go. Okay. So I'm going to deprive you of the criteria today. I'm not gonna tell you what it is. I'm gonna tell it to you next week. Inshallah, we'll start with that. And then you can take the time, maybe, if you've heard this, many of you have heard this, or like, I know what the I know, you know, what the I've done this, I've done this. It's
the fifth time during the series, so you know it. But if you don't, if you don't remember, take some time to think about it. What do you think you would be looking for out of your slot? Because there's a way to answer this question. When you say Could it be? Could it wouldn't you have chosen me? You can you can make the answer. Yes, you can. Right? You can by just saying okay, what was he looking for? And then take those characteristics and lose them? And then the answer will be yes. If I was back, then I would have all the characters he's looking for you he would say me, but if you don't have them, he's gonna say no. And that's what I think is the word is worth your time to maybe take a
look take just to reflect on that. And think for yourself. What do you think he would be looking for? You're looking for money. What is he looking for? He's looking for good looking? Good. Looks. What does he want? Is it based on age? Is it based on gender? Is it is it based on race, but it was it based on what? How would you qualify to be someone that within those first three years it wasn't three days? Was it six months was three years? Now? That's a long time? It's 36 months of his data it sounds to me he's not opening it up. Some people may want to say I want to be as Muslim later I'll talk to you later. Not now. Not now. I need a core group. And I think it's worth talking about
what I'll share with you and show before next week and show some recognition Hola Hola. Hey, Linda. So who's to blame for has always made sure we have a good tomorrow we have a potluck if breakfast after fajr I give a small call to like not small.
