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

Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi urged manual but I'm trying to start a little bit earlier, just so that we can get a little bit more content and show into the Halacha I'm not sure if there's even a hope tonight or not. If there's not, then I'll probably just go to Asia. If there is people someone, let me know Inshallah, if there is

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

we took a week, I think a week or two off.

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

During the break, we'll be on for the next couple of weeks, there'll be a week where I'm away and then we'll come back in Sharla and will run until Ramadan.

00:00:28--> 00:00:33

Where we are in his life, it can Salatu Salam is just after the third year of his prophecy.

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

It's important what while you study his life and learn about his life story, so Allah he's, like you said, is to make sure you have a little bit of a grasp in terms of the phases, understanding that there are different phases and for his dalla, and those phases consisted of different challenges and obstacles and

00:00:53--> 00:01:27

and the types and the natures of the soldiers that were being revealed to him. Ali assaults on during these phases are also quite different. And I'll try to point that out to you as much as as much as possible. And where we are, is just after the third year. So the first three years he was selective in his Dalada usato. So he didn't speak to everyone, he just chose specific people. And we kind of talked about the significance of that. And then he was given by Allah subhanaw taala, the command to actually go public. And I think that the reason that that I exist in the Quran is because he was, I think, hoping for another year or so of selective building, and lots of good go open. So

00:01:27--> 00:01:41

go go public, so he spoke to his family first. And then he got in the jumble of stuff and he spoke and he was persecuted by his uncle Buddha hub right off the bat. And where we stopped, we kind of stopped there last, last, however,

00:01:42--> 00:01:53

the next couple of weeks, we're going to be talking about the phase of his prophecy Alia salatu salam that is heavily focused on on the aspects of persecution.

00:01:54--> 00:02:33

Because the moment he went public, Alia salatu salam Qureshi was no longer neutral. And they no longer just kind of let things happen. Now they were going to take a stance, they're going to decide where they were, how they were going to deal with someone who is calling out for a new faith or trying to change the status quo. Because Islam didn't just come and talk about theology. This is an important piece. Islam is not here just to tell us how, what to believe in and then how to perform rituals. Islam is a is a is a reformist movement. It talks about reform on every level of life. It talks about social reform and financial reform and political report before him and ethical reform.

00:02:34--> 00:02:39

And without reform, actually, Islam doesn't have any teeth. And there's not much and that's what they like it.

00:02:41--> 00:03:21

They are dictators and people who want control they like and Islam that is Toothless. That is that is really no bite to it. It's just two people who go to a masjid. They pray, they do their little things there quietly, and they that's it ends there outside of the Masjid. There are no there's there's no consequence to being a Muslim outside of the Masjid. It doesn't actually it has no tentacles into people's workspace or into their schools or their businesses or their relationships. They just want it stuck within within, within the space of worship. And that just doesn't work with what Islam is. Now you can you can try and take make Islam that and some people have it, but it

00:03:21--> 00:03:57

doesn't work. I mean, in the long run, it fails, it's them is it something is a faith is a cause. It's a way of life that will force us all if we accept it appropriately, to change our ways. And to be a little bit different and to see things a little bit differently and live life in a way where we are not okay with any form or kind of corruption. So grayish when they listen to the Prophet alayhi salatu was that I'm preaching and explaining because he took it right to them. He wasn't passive. He didn't do what we are doing, where we sit in the messenger, and we talk and let people know he would go right to them out of his thoughts and bring Islam to others. As they listened to him, they

00:03:57--> 00:04:36

figured out that this is not going to work well for us. This is not going to be in our best interest. I mean, yeah, it makes sense at all. But I can see how this is going to cause a lot of problems. So they said no to it for reasons that had nothing to do with the authenticity, originality or correctness of the teachings themselves, which is most of the time the case is that ideas rarely are refused or accepted based on their merits. They're accepted or refused based on politics, something, something that had to do with the consequences or something to do with alliances that are being built, unfortunately, that that's the case. So they decided to defy him on

00:04:36--> 00:04:58

his salatu salam and of course, they had the upper hand, or at least they thought they did, or at least they thought they did for the majority of the time, because they had more wealth. They had more power. They had more numbers. They had the popularity. They were the leaders of Arabia because they were the religious face of it. They took care of the Kaaba and the Kaaba was and continues to be the center of the Muslim world. And forever in sha Allah will be

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

and his

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

teachings on a Serato. Some upfront was very positive, he would tell them kulula Illa Illa Allah to De La Combe trouble Well, c'est la isla in Allah and one day you will lead you will lead all of the Arabs and all of the non Arab nations, c'est la ilaha illa Allah, the Quran agenda, your intergender, he used a very positive message messaging on his Salatu was Salam. And of course, that's what was very important because

00:05:25--> 00:05:44

I think when we talk about Islam to people who are non Muslim, or when we talk about Islam, to those who are still on the rails or on the fence, you have to bring a narrative that is positive. And it's not that we're lying, say, Okay, we're gonna, we're gonna talk No, no, Islam has an extremely positive narrative embedded within it.

00:05:45--> 00:06:15

You can afford within Islam when you talk about Islam upfront, to point out the positives, like how this is going to affect you positively. And that's all right. It's an important piece because Allah subhanaw taala, General General who is the Hakeem is the all wise, so he would not supplant it with put together a way of life and send guidance that was going to cause you harm, or to make you weak, or to make you miserable, or incapable or unstable. Not at all. It's the opposite of all of that. But it will put you

00:06:17--> 00:06:33

in confrontation with corruption, for sure. And that's always scary, that's always difficult. You're always going to end up standing in front of tyranny, and discrimination, and oppression. And many, many people find that to be a little bit too

00:06:34--> 00:06:40

Can we can we not go there? Can we do everything else is not that piece? Can you just maybe not talk about that, please don't bring that up.

00:06:41--> 00:07:04

And the Sahaba in certain points, as I will show you throughout their life, some of them will get into that mentality and hope for a quieter existence, and he would bring it out of his thoughtless he would bring the fight to the oppressor. He would bring it time and time again, even though when the Sahaba would look at it sometimes say, why why are we doing this? Do we need to do this is there is it really necessary for us to you take it to the point here. So that was

00:07:06--> 00:07:09

that was a Christian began, I'm going to start by telling you

00:07:10--> 00:07:33

aspects of the persecution of the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam himself, and then I'll go through what happened to the sahaba. So I'm not going to go in a in a sequential time lapse way. But rather than just talking about the silos, here's what happened to him on ASR tours and the different types. Here's what happened with the sahaba. And kind of go through the year four, or five, six, and seven, because this is what kind of what happened there. But before we do, there are two solos that were revealed that I want to share with you quickly,

00:07:34--> 00:08:11

within this timeline, and I like doing this because when we know the sooner that was revealed within this, within that period, it's always nice to share it because I think it's a lot to me starting to get old press he saw it last year was revealed. I think I talked about that last time. And so it also teaches us the importance of time. And learning the importance of time means that we are open to learning from the experiences of the people around us, that we are willing to listen, as well as offer our own advice to others. And within a society. Without that there is no way that we can, we can prevail. Like we cannot succeed without without that, without the concept of colossal right to

00:08:11--> 00:08:44

also means it's a two way road. As I offer you advice you offer me as well. I have something to offer you in terms of experience, and you have something to offer me. And every person is sitting beside every person in here is a is a gem who carries with with them experiences and thoughts and creativity that others lack, that if we were open minded to benefiting and taking even the people that you think don't even for example, like your siblings, and your children, and the people they think have nothing to offer they do, they just have to make sure the opportunities are there for them to actually share it. And that's really an important piece. And that's what sort of also

00:08:44--> 00:08:59

teaches us that if you want to not lose time, you have to listen to the people around you. You have to listen because everyone is going through life and they'll come back with a valuable piece of experience are a valuable piece of advice. If you take it, then you win time, you don't have to go and make the same mistake that they made.

00:09:00--> 00:09:17

Another story that was revealed this week at the castle. So that the guy though, is the sewer that talks about priorities. And he's very important in our in our DNA slime is one of the most important things and it's something I believe we still struggle with heavily as Muslims for sure. We don't understand priorities very well. And until we do, we're going to continue to kind of

00:09:18--> 00:09:48

fumble, and the sooner because by helping with the castle, to Castle is the pursuit of more. It's a beautiful word is the pursuit of more of just wanting more of anything or everything, whatever it is just more what is it that you want? You want more of it more money, more status, more, more respect, more space, more possessions, whatever it is that you want more, and how come you are being distracted by the pursuit of more low

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

when he uses that word and help him he's not saying subhanaw taala that you're doing something haram. He's just saying that you're being distracted. Distraction means what it means I

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

logically, is when there are two things, one of them is more important than the other and you got distracted into the other. That's what distraction means. Because there's something there's Ha, there's Halal haram. And it's not, we don't use the word unhealthy or level or we don't use distraction for that because you do, you don't do haram period. But and Hurrican means that there are two things, both of them are technically speaking, worth doing. But one of them is much more important than the other. So you if you do the other, then you're wrong. And that, and that can also apply for stuff that are important, for sure. And you could be in a position where I need, you have

00:10:34--> 00:10:44

an exam the next morning, so you should study versus you are going to clean up your room. And both of them are very good positive things without the context. They sound amazing. I'm going to clean my house today.

00:10:46--> 00:11:16

But you're not prepared for something that's much more important that that doesn't work. There's no sense in that. So that's what an atom comes in, as a word explaining that piece, that it's about understanding what the priorities are, don't be distracted by the pursuit of just more, because it's not wrong for you to do it. But if you're being distracted by it, meaning you're going after a procedure, you're pursuing more of something when you shouldn't, when you have something much more important to be doing right now, something that's much more pressing, and you shouldn't be careful focusing on it, then you're strong then becomes wrong just by just by that nature, by the merit of

00:11:16--> 00:11:31

you not knowing what's important was less important. It's important to understand that when we're raising our children, when we're building communities, when we're dealing with people, when we have relationships, it's important to know what matters and what doesn't matter what can slide and what shouldn't.

00:11:32--> 00:11:49

So you can prioritize this OMA has, has lost his sense of priority. I know that because I get asked like a lot of questions. Like a lot of questions you have, you have no idea you think you know, you don't know, you don't know the amount of questions I get asked on a daily basis.

00:11:50--> 00:12:23

Many of the questions I get asked the answer is it doesn't matter. Honestly, holy, it doesn't matter. Like do whatever it doesn't. It's not that important. Why don't know why you're led to believe this is so important. I actually start my answer to any question by saying whether this is something worth arguing about or not? Is something worth having some some discussion about or not? Not at all. And we don't seem to know what is and what isn't. And this is the example I give this is my this is my like the story this this hypothetical, fictional, perfect story that I tell. And you understand what I mean?

00:12:24--> 00:13:00

I say that at some that there was a man who came to us and stocked up the priorities for us perfectly. They're all scattered all over the floor. He took them, he brushed them off, and he start to stack them. Some Allah hottie Simon said, he stocked them perfectly, and he got them right there. So we knew what was the most important thing. Second important thing, what was down at number 100 What was leaving less than that. And he taught us through this priority list how to live our lives, and it worked out nice people learned it, they practiced it, things worked out beautifully. And he handed down the list before he left on the Hill salatu salam, and that generation handed it down to

00:13:00--> 00:13:03

the Jewish and after there's some some some point I don't know when

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

seven 800 year later,

00:13:07--> 00:13:38

they stopped, they just they took the stack for granted. And no one and they stopped memorizing it, they stopped learning it it's just kind of handed handing it down without memorizing it. And the guy who was handing it down slipped and fell and scattered the whole thing on the ground. Now he didn't know what the actual sequence was but no one saw that he fell you know when you fall and you hope that no one saw it you pick things up quickly act like nothing happened so this guy did the same thing he quickly just stuck them up however and just walked in act like nothing happened didn't say anything Oh my sound or you say anything at all. And he handed it down to the second generation and

00:13:38--> 00:14:00

he watched to see if things would work out nothing really changed and so he thought it was fine Little did you know that when you ruin a priority list it takes two to three sometimes four generations for things to completely get destroyed and be ruined. So the by the time the effects of this priority list that it was was not correct anymore actually took effect he was dead. So it didn't tell us

00:14:02--> 00:14:13

and since then, we've been trying to figure out how to prioritize this the stack again and until we do you will continue to fumble and fail because we don't know what what matters and what doesn't matter.

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

You don't understand what trumps everything and what we can for sure afford to not have a problem with we don't understand. So we argue about stuff. We argue about stuff we fight over how many like after all we should we should pray you fight over something like that we disagree and people's voices get high in messages and stuff like

00:14:33--> 00:14:42

yet we are an omega is living under tyranny and oppression all across the globe. We're fighting over this little dead self it's fine.

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

It's fine. It's not a big deal. You fight with children over haircuts.

00:14:48--> 00:14:57

Sorry, it's not it's not worth the time really isn't. It's way more important things that a child should be taught to in they should learn than just what they're

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

we spend a lot of effort

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

have no energy on things that just don't have any meat to them. They're just not important. Sorry, they're just not and the stuff that really matter that really really matters somehow just go under the radar for a long time.

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

By the time we figured that out, it's just little bit too late.

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

And that's what this sort of says. That's what he says Kela Allah Munna Animalia Cain.

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

I swear to you if you knew with certainty of knowledge, and then there's something missing.

00:15:30--> 00:15:47

See letter? No wonder Jehovah is not the answer. The eye is not saying oh, if you if you knew that you are going to see Genoa Stata is saying that you're saying Kela lo talamona Animalia teen. And then there's something that is deleted. It's understood from the context. La melta. Haytham, you wouldn't be distracted.

00:15:48--> 00:16:09

That piece is just it's understood from the from the context. Now Tala, if you knew with certainty of knowledge, what's what's waiting for you what's right and what's wrong, what's worth living for, and what's not, you wouldn't get distracted. Because you will let alone another Jehane, the day will come where you will see it from where I thought I wouldn't hang it up, and then you'll see it.

00:16:10--> 00:16:31

And you'll see it in a way where you have was no longer a question of validity. It's not an issue of verify, verifying, and it's something that you are now certain of tomorrow, just I don't know, even even though you'll be asked about the leisure, you'll be asked about that more that you pursued, that you went after when you shouldn't have there was something much more important that you should have spending spending your time doing.

00:16:32--> 00:16:45

So I always find it fascinating that this to Surah is right at the beginning of oppression came and told him to things on his salatu salam make sure that you are listening, learn from people around you don't waste time because you don't.

00:18:28--> 00:18:48

started over, I understand that, but honestly you don't know, spaces aren't that important. It's there are other things way more important too. But you can easily just rent out a warehouse and run a job. Ah, it's not about space. That's not the priority that we have a lot of massage numbers, that doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. That doesn't that's not that's not the point

00:18:49--> 00:19:06

is having the critical pieces that a community needs, where you have groups that are focused groups that have specific focuses, whether its focuses of outreach or advocacy, or education, or taking care of the vulnerable within our society, societies are only as worthy as

00:19:07--> 00:19:39

as much care as they show to their vulnerable ones. Like any society, their worst is based on how well do they take up the vulnerable pieces of that society? If they don't, then there's no hope. If we're a society that completely neglects and looks away from those who are weak amongst us financially weak or mentally weak or socially weak or those who are struggling, then we're a society that we're doomed. We're doomed to fail. Because that's not how we thought about things I used to love to go back and it's gone. We don't have to go back that far. Go back three or four years in his life when when he came running down the mountain when he said he could tell him when he was scared

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

that this was going to be punishment. He thought that Gibreel was there to punish him or it wasn't it was a sign of Allah subhanaw taala ziani But wrath, she doesn't know and he's he's which he said for that miracle. 123 mile hoof. What's your beef with him? No, no, you stand by the week you carry the one who can carry themselves you because I think you saw through somebody's focus

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

in his life before prophecy was taking care of the weak around him, it is not to say I'm not ignoring them. So they become weaker and poor and they can't take care of themselves.

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

Prioritizing was a big deal.

00:20:12--> 00:20:44

These are the foundational sutras is what these students are talking about. These are, these are big messages. I know we memorize them as kids. Just on Monday, we move on and we de suicide messages are very clear. So Sahaba learned this stuff. They learned the importance of the sanctity of their choice, the importance of their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala What to speak meant. They understood what the tug of war was early on, they understood that they were there to fulfill a role. They were designed to fulfill that role, understood the importance of understanding what's happening to them in life. Imagine if they didn't understand what was happening. Imagine if they were like us,

00:20:44--> 00:21:11

when things go wrong, we start doubting Allah altogether, because things didn't go perfectly. Imagine if they were like that, there'll be no stem, none of this would exist, we'd all fade away. If historically that didn't happen, we just stop insisting altogether. The importance of benefiting from those around you and a slot to Islam was very big on this. He listened to everyone, anyone and everyone who had something to offer he was listening on he saw this I'm I'm not, I don't have to say these things. I will, it will be proven to you throughout throughout this era. And they were able to prioritize appropriately.

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

So after he does this,

00:21:17--> 00:21:55

and he goes public, it becomes a little bit of a difficult piece for Quraysh. Because honestly, what he's saying is just very powerful. The Quran that was being revealed to him these tools that we read, read and take for granted, for the autumn, who perfected and mastered the language, they were the kings of of their own tongues, and they understood they had the mastery of their language that was unparalleled. Yet the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam was bringing forward the Quran, and they did not know how to deal with it. Like they didn't know how to characterize it, they couldn't seem to do something similar to it. And they weren't able to keep up with the artistic aspect of it. And

00:21:55--> 00:22:31

the profoundness of it at the same time, was like you can write things that have meaning and that are purposeful, but the writing can be weak, you understand what's being said it just weak, it just writing. But the credit wasn't like that. Not only was the message strong, but the writing the wording was was was profound was amazing, was beautiful. And they were struggling with where he was getting all of this, because they just kept on coming. A poet will come up with a beautiful poem, it will take him a while. And then he'll go to sleep for a couple of months. Because it's very, it's very, it's very draining to do actually write good poetry, or to come up with a sermon that is

00:22:31--> 00:23:07

actually well put together. But I think you saw some was just kept on coming, one sort of after the other, and they're very different. They're not the same. So it lasts longer. So it's not similar. Like it's not the same morning being repeated. It's all they're very different different topics, different concepts, different forms and methods. And as he explained what he was there to teach how to use salatu salam, they started to feel their weak the weakness of their arguments, they they started to feel overwhelmed by this guy and what he was doing, and they could see the Bucha dicking around them who were putting their faith in them as leaders questioning whether, because it seems

00:23:07--> 00:23:44

like whatever he argues with you, you have nothing like you don't have a good comeback to this guy. He's, he's coming to you and you have nothing. He's beating you in every aspect of this discussion. And they were looking bad. So they met. And they said we need to have some narrative. What do we call this? What do we call what he has? What is it? Is it? Is it sorcery? Is it magic? Is it a lie? What is he? What do we what do we do about what do we how do we label him? And how do we label the Quran, we need to label them all propaganda works. It's the best, easiest way to do things. People are too lazy to care. Forgive me, and I'm not talking about us. Human beings in general, just lazy.

00:23:44--> 00:24:04

We don't we don't want to go and read and figure out what's right and wrong. We just want someone to tell us good or bad. All right, that was bad. That's what it is. just label it for me. So I don't have to waste I don't wanna spend any time. So they needed a narrative correction needed a way to label the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and label what he was doing. So they started talking. And they said,

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

they said it seems that it's poetry. So we'll we'll either Mahira the father of college evening will lead and he was one of the oldest of Croatian I talked to him before because he's the one of the guys who rebuilt the Kaaba before his prophecy out here. So Otto is an intelligent man, and quite powerful. A little bit too much, I guess, was his problem.

00:24:25--> 00:24:30

He had listened to the Quran a couple of times, and they were saying we'll call it poetry. So he said Nah,

00:24:31--> 00:24:41

they say be sure I didn't fit in Nice. I'd have to share our Lindsay well Jenny what ASA Debbie said we share. I know the poetry of humans engine and this is not poetry. Because he then

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


00:24:45--> 00:24:46

this magic.

00:24:48--> 00:24:57

He's a magician card out of two out of two Sahaja Well, they say that me sir. I know. I know the magicians and what they say what they do and this he's not a magician.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Well, then we'll call him a star.

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

Sure I can

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

find out after Canada. Personally, I totally lost my home while they sent me home. I've been with sorcerers I've seen what they say and how they behave and how they just not like that.

00:25:12--> 00:25:20

So they say if it didn't matter and cool, then what do we say? You're shooting down all of our ideas? What do we call this, then? We'll call it that only give me some time I need some time to think.

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

So he goes in, he thinks.

00:25:26--> 00:25:30

And he comes back the day after to have a discussion with them.

00:25:33--> 00:26:04

And they start saying the same thing. So what we're thinking that the consensus amongst us is to say that he is a curtain or to call this a certain type of, you know, new shadow that he is in taking it from someone else. For Karla Elisa, because none of this works. It's not in this works that what he's saying is not that so they they pressure him a bit what is it? What is he saying? What? So he said it really does raise a lot of Allah he in the holy Hillary Apolo the Hello. We're in LA he loved Allah when the hula moves me on

00:26:06--> 00:26:49

when the hula I knew what are you gonna do in the hula primo Matata? He said, Honestly, what he says has this beauty to it. And there's just this sense of never getting enough of pulled away there's, it's almost it's so easy to hear. And you feel like you can never get enough of it. And when you listen, think about it from a higher stake, you'll find it to be extremely prosperous and helpful. And if you look at it from the from the perspective of a common person, you'll find it to be just give it filled with wisdom. And honestly, I believe that it is the highest form of literature, nothing is high higher than it and anything you compare it to it will the crash. That's what he

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

said, to call us about.

00:26:52--> 00:27:25

Have you what you you follow them? Did you did you change so but it is a huge word they used to used to say that you left your dean Ponderosa that day, yo, I need Bacala Calama delivery taco where you say, are you insane? If someone hurt you? You're you're basically what do you know? You have to say something different. You have to say, this is not a narrative we can carry to the people of place. So he said fine, I'll think about it. Mosquito, like, I feel bad for him. I really do. I don't know if I should but I do feel bad. He got it. He got it right. I don't think anyone has described the Quran more beautiful.

00:27:26--> 00:27:40

Honestly, scholars have described the Quran and beautiful. I don't think anyone got it as well, as a mixing. Yes, he did. He really described it in a way that is almost unparalleled, perfect description. You're correct. I can tell you what it is. But he just couldn't do it.

00:27:41--> 00:27:49

And he was somewhere in the middle will lead to somewhere in the middle between saying, you know what you're like, I know this is this is. And then they said, This is what they said to him.

00:27:51--> 00:28:03

This is what they say call you. Or you also do Hua want to have him accomplish? What? You actually believe that he's the messenger, and you are the greatest amount of fresh? Why would God choose him when you're here?

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

That's what he said to him.

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

So he believed

00:28:10--> 00:28:18

Yeah, that's true. I am the richest and the wisest and the most knowledgeable I have the most followers I have. Why would Allah subhanaw choose him and not me? It makes no sense to me. He must be.

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

So he went and you start to think

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

I don't have to tell you what he did put on this.

00:28:30--> 00:28:42

At the end of that first piece of Susan would definitely that would that their second or third suit? All right, number 34th. Super early one. And after you go through those initial commands, those beautiful commands. Allah subhanaw taala talks about

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

talks about relieving mobila

00:28:52--> 00:29:28

The elderly woman Holika to Wahida he tells the private lead me and the one who I created alone, not that He created him alone subhanaw taala which he did, but the one that was created on there alone. You see we all come to this world alone. We come out even if you're you have a twin you come out alone. You really you're on your own, there's really not much is whatever luck you have if the person who gave birth to you decides to pick you up and take care of you then you're lucky and if not, then that's it. You have nothing else. No need to worry either leave the one that I brought to this world alone. What your Allatoona who madam dude and I gave them lots of wealth. Well, Benina

00:29:28--> 00:29:32

Chu who then many children, many sons, socially well supported

00:29:33--> 00:29:56

from head to toe who Tim Haider and I made his life quite easy for him. So my apologies XID and then he asked me for more color, I will not give him more in no kind. Tina I neither indeed he turned his face away. He was stubborn towards the science that I gave him. So all HIPAA rules are old and he will be punished. He will be punished on his way.

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

As he goes up in his life, he will continue to be punished

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

In the WHO Saqqara worker door, he thought and he waved things out, but got a thought under weighing things out. Of course, he like a Sacandaga some of Coachella occurred on May he be, may he be punished for the way he thought and weighed out and made him get punished yet again for the way he thought in the way he weighed things out. So, my Navarre, and then he looked to Modbus

00:30:24--> 00:30:34

whereby sir, looked down, this was the point is restriping, he's thinking he looked up to my mother to Modbus. Then he found what was solid, then he looked down, closing his eyes

00:30:35--> 00:30:45

to about always stuck about, and then he turned his back to the thing he knew was correct. And too much arrogance filled his heart. You accepted that little piece.

00:30:47--> 00:30:53

Why would Muhammad be the Prophet and you're the greatest man of coloration? It filled him up about a stack of

00:30:55--> 00:30:59

Bacala and he said, in Hurghada all this is what you're reading, see around you.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

So it's

00:31:04--> 00:31:16

it's not that he's a magician or your SWAT also know the words have magic attached to them that he inherited from some other magician. They came up with a twist to it, because he can't call him a missionary. His thought was people know him.

00:31:18--> 00:31:50

Never Never did magic in his life never never pulled a trick out of his pocket ever out of his luck. There's no There's no he is. So how do we how do you explain then that the Quran is affecting all these people, you've all listened to the Quran and they're loving it. So I'm gonna say the Quran the words have a magical effect on people. It's an act of magic that he inherited from some other person, in Haida in Poland, Russia, and it's only a words of a person. It's not it's not divine. It's some magician that put magic on these words and gave it to him it salatu salam, and he's distributing it and that was the narrative.

00:31:51--> 00:32:06

So the narrative so closely he circled, you will enter a place in Johannesburg called Suffolk Mount Ida raka massacre and what do you know about soccer? Learn to basically what it leaves nothing. Low wha ha to little Bashar

00:32:07--> 00:32:14

takes off the skin. Allah you have this dash of 19 of the mullah Iike supervise it that's Allah subhanaw taala salaam

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

this was what led Maria was taught why because

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

this is the this is the

00:32:22--> 00:33:01

danger of you seen the truth and just allowing some aspect of your of your enough's or something happening around you and just get you to say, Nah, I'll find some way around it, or ignore it or convince yourself of something different. lie to yourself about it because it's too painful to accept the truth. That's what really did. It was obvious to him in a moment of weakness. He said what he truly thought about the Quran, and then so much a lot of peer pressure. And he was given a little bit of a, they blew into his ego a bit and he made him so he lied to himself. And he went back into Quran described his movements. He's walking back and forth *a Wakanda Nova I buzzer

00:33:01--> 00:33:22

buzzer and then he is like he's processing it. I see. Allah is telling I watched you. I watched you walk around processing it, thinking about it knowing what the truth was, I saw them I know the moment that you knew that it was the truth but decided to call it something different and you will be held accountable for it. Watch out a wash out in your life. There's just Jalan our

00:33:23--> 00:33:55

tests in life are not regarding the Quran. We've accepted the Quran. But you'll have similar tests in life regarding other stuff, where you'll be in a moment and you'll know what's right and what's wrong, you'll know that you're you've been on the wrong side for a while. But it's hard sometimes because the person who's saying the right thing is someone who's just not worthy of your respect, or someone who's just always been wrong, or someone who's extremely obnoxious, or someone that you just can't stand and it's hard to admit that that person is right on this one. It's hard. It's very difficult it takes to take someone and that's what happened till really they just couldn't do it. He

00:33:55--> 00:34:26

couldn't bring himself to doing it and he didn't and he walked down that path and he never came back. It's funny because he could have read read these verses and decided to accept this time and debunks the whole Quran like I wouldn't have good of a boy when he heard that but yeah, I've been I've been watching because he alright La Ilaha illa Allah you're done. Everything you're saying is all made up because now I'm Muslim Now what are you gonna do with it? Right? It's funny that they never did. It taught me quite fascinating. I am I'm awed by it. Like if you want to debunk have faith in divine revelation, it's really easy if the Quran is pointing you out as someone who is

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

going to be punished just joining the group

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

just joining debunked in a home and you went both ways. They didn't they didn't somehow they didn't love it I did. You can eat if you're against something the easiest way to debunk it is just join at this point and he didn't Subhanallah hula hula had and they didn't. It's just something to think about.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam spent the next few years going after what we know today, a sunnah deed Quraysh go after the leaders of connection and speak to them and he would come to their homes and come to their gatherings.

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

And as he did this Allahi salatu salam, he would be persecuted on a daily basis. A Buddha would come walk after him and his salatu salam. And he would say much, you know, now to Kalamoon He's insane. Don't speak to him. Every time he came to speak to someone on a salatu would have become me. No, don't speak to him. I know him. I'm his uncle, by a Corona unmoveable Robbie, He is uncle. He knows more. I mean, I don't know him as much as the uncle knows him. And his uncle's thinks he does know what he's talking about that maybe we stay away from him.

00:35:28--> 00:36:05

Not once did the Prophet Allah you sort of look back and, and let Ebola have it. I remember growing up listening to these stories and wishing he did as a kid, you know what I mean? It's wishing at some point in the story, he would just turn it on, I think I saw two of them and just swing a punch, and just level up what I have and move on not once, because it's very difficult to hear what I was saying to him and his thought was wrong. But then you learn that that wasn't the idea of the prophecy. The idea of Rasul Allah, Allah is what was around would not allow him to speak to an elder in his family in a way that was respectful, you wouldn't do it. So not once did he look back? Not

00:36:05--> 00:36:26

once did he say a word to Buddha, even though we haven't confronted him, he would just look away and keep on going, turn, turn back changes change his route, because he would not confront his uncle and speak to him in a rude and disrespectful way. Even though this is strike three, right? I totally caught the strikes, right would have strike three now. Of him, of him persecuting his own his nephew. So Allah has abused me.

00:36:27--> 00:36:48

But that didn't work. The number of Muslims continue to rise steadily, steadily. It was a steady rise. It wasn't huge, but it was steady. Every quarter was the same number of people going up. So they thought we had to figure out some other way to do this. They brought in a man they recruited a guy, his name was unbelievable how they recruited him. Another was a man of many

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

uses of many languages, and many stories, this gentleman,

00:36:56--> 00:37:29

a jack of all trades, he had been all around the world. He's been deep into Persia into the Roman empire into Greece. And he had heard all the fables and all of the all of the mythologies, and he knew a lot of catalog stories. The guy didn't really have anything that you live by. But he was good at telling stories because he was a sauce as, by the way, this job existed until the lot until 150 years ago, not that long ago. Anyone here washed up and how long before he was they used to come? The guy who would come in and give and tell the story, right? And they all they all sit around and this guy is telling a story. Because there was no radio, there was no television, all you had was

00:37:29--> 00:38:02

some dude who sat there and knew how to tell the story. And as long as he tell the story in a good way, people were drinking their tea and listening and enjoying it. And they made their made sure they made it their first to hear the story. So it's a big deal. So no, that was one of those guys, he was told stories. So they brought him and the job was that wherever the Prophet alayhi salatu salam went, he would go. And whenever the Prophet saw them start to explain things he would start speaking for the private and he would tell the stories of Ibrahim and Musa and Isa and hold him silent and show I a lot of the prophets of Allah. A lot of those sewers that had those stories were

00:38:02--> 00:38:27

revealed during this period, like hood and allow off, right? We're building this period, right? A lot of stories in there. And he would tell stories at the same time in a way that was confusing and distracting and a little bit rude. And he would say metaphorical benei ouabain Mo, what difference is there between me and him who I am and I am saying I am telling fables and he's telling fable with a different sort of luck on each side. Mitch main, again, never confronted him.

00:38:28--> 00:38:37

Remember, I told you the beginning there's some ground rules. Now we're not here to fight. We're not going to live no bearing arms. We're not going to fight people. That's what we're here for. We're not gonna do it.

00:38:39--> 00:38:42

He'd walked down the street Alia salatu. Salam, and amongst the people who would would

00:38:44--> 00:38:57

when I would have got tired, his replacement was honorable club. That was his job and walk around and the moment the Prophet alayhi salam came in spoke to someone he would tell him keep moving. Keep walking, keep walking

00:38:58--> 00:39:12

up the door of a man so people will just keep on walking in the park. It is also a turn to him and say I like to look at any legal and well no hold on Jamar. You don't leave me day or night you have nothing else to do. You have no one or nothing else you want to do in your day, you still walk behind me and tell people not to listen.

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

When that didn't work, they came up with another way. They said okay, we're going to

00:39:19--> 00:39:48

we're going to come up with a different piece of propaganda. We're going to acute we're going to say that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that Muhammad is bringing his revelation, the words the Quran because their problem was the Quran. Just let me make this very clear. Their problem was the Quran the Quran was so powerful. And the impeccability of the Prophet Allah you saw two sons character made it much more difficult. Because the person who's carrying it the Prophet Allah, you saw him his character who he was, obviously was a whole, but it's the words that he was reading to people reciting that he just couldn't figure out what to do with and people are still getting

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

affected. And probably the thing that affected them the most was the name of Allah al Rahman. This was their nightmare. they disliked that name. Because in the Arabic language if you

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

study Arabic language like Arabic is like math, if you understand the root, the three letters and what they mean, you can make words actually, you can create words that don't exist in old Arabic that can exist in modern Arabic and have meaning. And that's why this language will continue to grow. Because you can derive it say you add an elephant, after the first little yellow letter A year after the third letter to an elephant. No, not the last and then you could come up with a meaning that maybe they never had to use before. So Rama and Rahim did are known were known words Rockman that didn't exist, was coined by the Prophet alayhi salatu was by the Quran, right? It was a

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

beautiful name. People understand what it meant.

00:40:42--> 00:41:12

You understood what it meant. If you understood Arabic and it syllable Haim is so humble Shabbat is called seven, which I'm having said, it means that it's a descriptor is it's an adjective. That's specific, meaning he is merciful, but it's specific. There must be a group, a target audience, the target group is not when you take the three letters and just put an elephant noon at the end of it. Right. So all chan JaJuan, I'd not have known you just basically saying that this

00:41:14--> 00:41:33

word, the word itself is ongoing. It's ongoing. It's just, it's innate. It's innate, it's always there. So when he says the power dialer Bismillah Al Rahman, that he is a Rama and subhanaw taala, that he is merciful and compassionate towards all that his nature is that He is compassionate. That's who he is.

00:41:35--> 00:41:52

He can choose to be generous, you can choose to forgive, but he is by nature, a Rahman Subhana wa. And it was just poetic and beautiful. And people fell in love with the idea. And it brought hearts towards Islam. And Koresh hated it.

00:41:53--> 00:42:13

Because it was a word that they didn't know what to do with this new. So they came up with this. With this theory, they said, All right. He is being since everybody in the movie era came up with the idea that this is these are magical words that he is taking from the heat inherited from other source said, Yeah, the other source that he inherited it from?

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

Is a non Arab, named Raman.

00:42:19--> 00:42:56

Some nine out of magician named Brahman. And that's why the word Rama is all through it. Why not? Because no auto is going to be named like that. You can't lie it both ways. You can't have it both ways. You say, Oh, it's an out of guy called or none. We're out of there is no, this name has never been used. Do you make it up? So they had to make it a foreign a foreign person. And that's what they that's what they said, local in Alamo and Knowmia Fotona in MA y Lima who Masha and we know that you're there saying that person taught him this stuff, the saddle leather you will do in LA, he urged me? Well, then he said on our OB Yun Mubin. They're saying that it's a foreign person that is

00:42:56--> 00:43:10

teaching him this? Well, the foreign persons tongue is not our job. And the words that you're reading is out to be that you don't even have the ability to contest. So how does that even working for you? What claim is this? But that's what they did. And they made it look in the form that he was.

00:43:12--> 00:43:45

I mean, you're the one I mean, in Arabic, where you work for a foreign group, against the interests of your own. Yeah, so they use that word that either traitor, that you're bringing this from some person who's named off man who's not even amongst us, he is some Persian man or some from others from some other some other Yanni. culture or race, and you are working against your own to make him look as if he's a traitor. It has a lot to them all of this, because they couldn't obviously talk about his actual character, because actual character, there was nothing there. So they had to make up this stuff to see if they can get people to dislike it. And the reality is, a lot of the people

00:43:45--> 00:44:24

in Mecca and around it believed it. A lot of the people don't be surprised when you watch what's happening on it on television, when you watch what's happening to the brothers and sisters in Gaza in Philistine when you see it happening. And you wonder how is it that our human beings on this planet that will see all that and still carry a specific narrative that is very, don't be surprised. It's not difficult? Actually, I can probably, if you and I sat down and spent some time together, I could probably figure out a couple of stuff that you carry a narrative that is not verified appropriately, that you just accepted from some third party source, because you didn't care about

00:44:24--> 00:44:58

the issue too much. I'm pretty sure we have some biases, too. I'm not saying that, that I'm not I'm not saying it's okay. They're saying that as human beings, we tend not to want to spend too much time verifying stuff. So if someone gives us a narrative, that it's it's less of a headache, we'll just accept it. We don't want to say don't be don't want someone to give us a narrative that's gonna require us to change or do something or stand against it. No, that's too much work. So we just want someone to tell us something simple. Give me a way to vilify a whole group that that are calling us to change the way we do things, vilify them, so I don't have to think about them anymore. Because

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

you're telling me they're right. Then I have to know

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

To go back and review in my life and maybe change some of my choices and be different I don't want to do that. Tell me no villains it's easier that way. I use lottosend was a reformist he was a reformist he brought change. No one wants to change. So they vilified him. For the majority of people said Yeah, perfect. Yes he's, I mean you don't have to think about it. He's yeah he's I don't know what he's doing.

00:45:21--> 00:45:33

He's bringing it from some other source and sal Allahu Allahu Allah, Samuel said, but that's why this happened. This is why these things were occurring. They would mark him out of here salatu salam, they would make fun of them. I hate this piece. Right.

00:45:34--> 00:45:38

This is the parts of the seal. I don't like telling it didn't make fun of him.

00:45:40--> 00:45:51

Though he would he would walk out of his home or your Serato slam seven eight people be standing in front of his house. And once he walked down his guy walked walked down the pathway he would run in different in different

00:45:52--> 00:45:55

directions screaming match. No one makes you insane, insane.

00:45:57--> 00:45:58

Any would.

00:46:00--> 00:46:06

People they would put people on the outskirts of Mecca people were coming from Morocco or for Hajj. And they would tell them

00:46:09--> 00:46:10

the row hula Amma Quraysh

00:46:11--> 00:46:47

watch out for the boy of Quraysh woolum. Boy, Salah ha This is a 45 year old man, son Allah has always been what I'm, that's what you were there. If you hear these things, and you feel like in your heart, you would love to defend him or be there to correct that. Just to make sure you're clear on things, you can still do it. You can still do it, we tend to want to do that with the wrong methods. We tend to want to do these things and the wrong methods like someone says something bad about them. We tend to want to defend by going and you know, trashing an embassy or you know, burning a flag or standing in the street and screaming you want to defend tamales salatu salam, you

00:46:47--> 00:47:23

made sure that the reality of who he was is much more apparent. You live you embody his teachings on a you saw to Islam. And you speak of what it is that he that his legacy that he left us on historically, that's how you defend them, we can still you can still defend him from what happened back then, by making sure that, that people understand who he is, through your behaviors through your character and through your Dawa as well. Because that's what they treated him like this on a slot to me for no fault of his own. And he was he was extremely, he was extremely gracious about it. He was extremely gracious about his audience. So I've never, never, never allowed it to bother him.

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

He just kept on going his way.

00:47:26--> 00:48:07

They wish they would. And for him on a consult with him as a person as a man who lived all of his life, all of us like never ever doing anything that would put him in a position that would compromise his integrity. People like that. The thing that hurts them the most is if they are cold names, if they are dealt with in a way that is disrespectful. I've heard the Sutra of temperature. The law had been whatever was revealed. At the end of it on what I do have marital hardtop and his wife, the one I should add, she carries the woodfire to the fire, pointing out that she was tiny. And she stood by her husband and she and she pushed the agenda but would have been I would have done

00:48:07--> 00:48:31

what he did to the Prophet Allah Sufism not on his own. He hired someone in his ear. There was someone whispering in his ear the whole time pushing him to do it as well, not to say that I would have was not at fault, but he had there was an accessory to his crime. And his wife Umoja mean, was that person pointing out when she when she was told that you were you were referred to in the Quran. When wrote to her manager how to be referred to she left her home.

00:48:32--> 00:48:47

Prior to that, prior to that, she would take guard her garbage everyday because they were they were neighbors to house two houses down on the profile of your neighbors. When her garbage bin was full. She would carry it and she would dump it on his front yard and

00:48:49--> 00:49:22

they would come out and find it and he would say I yield you I didn't have yellow Majan me what what neighborly? What neighborly ethics are these. I understand you don't like what I'm doing. But this is not do our meet our basic ethics of being neighborly, this is not being a good neighbor. They would clean it up out of your slot to us. I mean, she would do this every second day to dump our garbage on his front lawn. He wouldn't say anything. It says it's the wife of his uncle. So Allah Hi Sam is mine. So when she heard that this happened, that there was something she was referred to. She picked up two rocks and she ran towards the Kaaba, where people gather the whole

00:49:23--> 00:49:23


00:49:25--> 00:49:46

Now, the word hate is when you say poetry to demean someone or two humiliate someone. So she was told again the propaganda she got is that this is all poetry. So she's referring to the Quran as if it is saying Yo, Joni, he's saying something bad about me through the poetry Walhalla women know what Jehovah they mean? Hijab I'm gonna smash his face and

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

some Allah Hadees language, right? So she runs right in front of the Kaaba, where he is standing out of your salatu salam, right we said alberca speaking with the two right rocks, Allah sees this and he

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

He's, he's very, he doesn't know exactly what to do. He's not going to attack a woman and she's also His Prophet. It sounds

00:50:09--> 00:50:22

like it is. And she's coming after him with the rock and he's not sure what the right decision to do is here. But that one gentleman Jeanine comes, arrives up right to the bottom. And she says anus or heybrook

00:50:23--> 00:50:59

Joanie, Where's your friend? Who is the saying these words about me? You might know, I'm going to smack his face. I mean, oh, look at her standing there. And I'm standing right beside him. Like, it's not even. It's not like he's behind a tree or something. No, they're just standing. And she's standing right there. And he's right here. And she's speaking to you don't know what to say. He's, he's never because that's that's not helpful, obviously. But he doesn't know what to say. So he freezes as he screams at him. Well, long enough. I'm going to do this I swear to God and Jesus stands uncertain of what's going on. Because he's right here. I used to go to work and I'm Allahu

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

Allah subhanaw taala. He didn't she didn't see him.

00:51:03--> 00:51:04

She didn't see him.

00:51:05--> 00:51:18

She didn't see him. Just like the people who come to the hall. When he is on his usual I didn't see it, look down and see him. Just like the people have budgeted. We'll look at the army and not see the numbers correctly. Who controls the perception of the brain when the eye sends us input in?

00:51:20--> 00:51:30

Who controls where the eye eyeballs go and what you're seeing what you pay attention to what you're doing? How do you account for that? How do you control that? You can't even see

00:51:32--> 00:51:33

so she came up with their own poetry.

00:51:35--> 00:51:43

She came up with their own so she started the same with mmm and now Selena Where do you know who? Kalina what Amara Who are they now?

00:51:44--> 00:52:02

His name is Mohammed. But Allah Allah Muhammad, the praised one. modem is a similar derivative from a different from the opposite word, the humiliated one modem means the humiliated one, but it's in the same derivative Muhammad modem is similar. So she changed his name.

00:52:04--> 00:52:18

And she made poetry without my mind now saying the humiliated one we disobey what Amala who obey Him and whatever it is that he brings to us, we refuse what Dena Hokulea and the religion that he gives us, we have thrown behind our backs, Polish loved it.

00:52:19--> 00:52:33

scotchy, short as memorizable and they start to think it sing it. The Sahaba some of them are in tears, as they hear people refer to him some Allahu Allah, so I'm gonna sell him in that manner. Some of them are in tears, because it's very,

00:52:34--> 00:53:09

they're just very upset. And the Prophet alayhi salam, we see them upset and they're singing with him and isolating them with him. And I say, You know what I'm about to come. What's wrong with you? In nema? Yes, to Mona radula. In a small room with them there. They're cursing out some guy whose name is Madame. Me, Mohammed. My name is Muhammad. I don't know who they're talking about. And they would love some Allah Hi, Simon, his name. He knew, obviously, obviously, he knew exactly what they were doing. And obviously understood, but he was gracious and graceful. And he didn't let words hurt him. They didn't let what people had to say about him affect him on he has talked with them. And he

00:53:09--> 00:53:14

took it in stride. And he wasn't the type of person if you said something about him got him all worked up. Doesn't matter.

00:53:17--> 00:53:48

Ever heard of Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me. So nice little doesn't matter what people say about you. If you know you're doing the right thing. If you know you're living your life appropriately, and you're making the right choices, words don't words don't matter. But that's what he was going through all of your thoughts on where we are. We are we are pumped for Okay, so And with that in Cheltenham. Next week, we'll continue there's still a few pieces of his persecution on a Serato Sunday haven't covered. And then we'll talk about the loo what's happening with the Sahaba de la vida Jemaine. And then I'll tell you why I even told you

00:53:48--> 00:54:17

these stories. Because I could easily just have told you look, the next couple of years or years of persecution here though, here's the Quran that was revealed to learn from it. But I want you to hear these stories. I want you to hear what he went through what he thought was and what the Sahaba went through. Because there's something there for us to learn for sure. There's something there for us to pick up on. That is extremely important and very meaningful as a Muslim community living in the West, whereas Muslims in general, understanding that the people who allowed us to carry the Quran went through life that way.

00:54:19--> 00:54:34

requiring us to have a little bit more of a thicker, a little bit thicker skin and be more of a backbone as we carry our deen understanding that it does what Muhammad Ali was taught was meant to that I can't expect anything less. Well if I am that I'm being a little bit unrealistic. I'll end with that. So my god
