To figure that piece out, so I just thought to a CERAM. At the end of that third year he gathered his family he spoke to his family it took two tries to work out the first trial will have basically sabotage and then the second try, he was able to preach His message. None of them accepted issues, in my opinion, an extremely revealing and important piece of the story that his family upfront did not say yes, aside from Satan, ally of the Allahu Anhu. No one really volunteered, you're talking big names like an ibis and Hamza Sophia, people who later on were extremely influential, important within the story of story of Islam. But upfront, they just weren't, they weren't ready yet. And I
always use that as an example is my go to example, when when people talk to me about family members that they have, or friends that they have, or people who they love, that they've been trying to
help or do Dawa for or bring them closer to Allah, and they're just resisting. And I tell them, that's really not your job, to force this upon people. And everyone's on their individual journey in life. And you can't really understand what that means to them, like you don't understand where they are mentally, psychologically, emotionally, and every other aspect of their existence. So don't, don't rush things. If Allah subhanaw taala was generous with you, and He guided you to the path early on in your life. So it was clear to you that that's a bounty and a blessing for you to be very, very thankful for within your life. Don't try to force things upon others who who may not have
that same advantage or may be struggling with things you don't understand, just perform Dawa in the kindest and most tender way possible, and then let them be and then come back and revisit it, whenever you find that there's maybe I need the benefit of doing that, aside from the lead people, people have to make their own decisions you try, the more you try to force things. And I find this more more from from parents, just as an FYI, for some of them, especially mothers, you know, sometimes your you want your kids to be something, and I didn't point in their lives where you can't force them anymore. And the harder you push, the farther away you repel them. The more you push, the
farther you lead them. Sometimes you have to take a step back, you have to let them process things and let them make their decisions, or else you you'll end up losing them long term. And I've seen so many examples of this, that I thought that it was worth maybe bringing up for many of you throughout as long as I didn't push hard with his family. He gave them dibs on the first public dollar. He spoke to them first before he would do what I'm going to explain to you today. Today. He spoke to them first, I think it's about to set up.
And they didn't accept that was okay. He continued to speak to them as he went through his life. And slowly, slowly, they accepted some of them didn't until the very, very end. Some of the standard members who were sitting there, like after, you know, maybe thought him, for example, didn't accept it until literally the last two years of his life. It was set up very, very late comers. And that's okay. And sometimes people need their time and it's important to kind of keep that in mind. So after he had this meeting with his family out of his thoughts, and I shared with you the first sermon that we have on record, where he spoke to them publicly, and it
was so beautiful. These are beautiful words that he shared with me your swatches, or am I telling you that I don't, I don't judge your, my relation to you the fact that we're related will not help you, you'll note them. You can't come and say, well, family, he's, he's my cousin, He's my uncle, he's my father, that won't help. You need to save yourself from punishment of the Day of Judgment you need to do. You need to carry your weight. I am here to guide you to teach you to help you but you have to carry your weight. And he told that to everyone whom he loved. He spoke to Sofia, he spoke that adversity he spoke to his daughter, Fatima Allahu Anhu. It was salam. And you know, his
daughter was already Muslim at the time, just as a FYI, all his daughter's name was all them. And her mother, her mother were Muslim. And within that gathering, also, he was Muslim already. So really, if you think about that gathering, no one accepted Islam say not even fought him said I'll put my hand in yours. So Allah, but he'd already done that before. So it wasn't the first time that he would do this. He just couldn't stand the Prophet Allah, you saw this, I'm offering this and no one and no one's no one's saying anything and no one any volunteering to accept it. So he he did it himself, even though he had already done this
three years before? Yeah, so really, when it comes to the nitty gritty of it, no one accepted from this feast that he had his tomato sermon. And you could think you may think that's a failure, but it really isn't. You plant the seed, sometimes sometimes you just plant the seed, you say something kind, you remind someone of something they maybe have forgotten, you give a good piece of advice, it's a seed you plant walk away, they walk away, but let them process it on their own time, they're not going to pass it the way you want them to process it. That's not how that's not how life works. So
one of those sewers I'm getting, what I'm going to do is every every session all revealed, I'll share with you one or two of the sewer that were revealed during the period that I'm talking to you about. So just have an idea of what the practicality is thought through someone's being taught early on. So you have an idea of what the Sahaba were also being taught early on to, because I think it's actually valuable, you're going to find that the majority of students that are going to put up here are going to be from the majority of them, if not all of them the first maybe five to six years, most of them will just that's what it was revealed. That's why when kids memorize it early on, I
think it's valuable for them to just try to understand what the students are actually explaining because there's there's important significance to that. So superficial was revealed to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and in a nutshell, not to take too long not to go through the full text of it. So it really teaches you how to have the proper perspective when you're living life like what attitude you're supposed to carry, how you're supposed to understand the events that are occurring to you within your life, which is why you have an ayah number 15 and 16 which are the core verses of the of the sutra that teach something extremely important when he says to parents if I'm million
Cirno either motonovo Boo FACA Rama who when I am a who fail Paul Robbie acraman What Wi
Fi or pool or via Hernan now it's supposed to be a current money the yeah is Madoff it's deleted and there's a customer if you look at the word document there's a case that I wanted to point out there was there supposed to be a yacht here, all of us do this all the time they they remove a yet that means in Malkia they have ownership that actually came back to me a company he treated me well that you would they remove their a lot you find it all across the Quran and a lot of different surah so it's not something unheard of. So what these verses are saying is 1,000,007 when the human being either tele horrible when his Lord puts him to the test or trials him
* Rama, who, when I'm at home, and he gives them a lot, and he dignifies Him and He bestows blessings upon him for the Rugby Tournament. Then the person walks around and saying, My Lord had his dignified me my Lord loves me. Well, I'm not either my better No. And on the other hand when his Lord tests him or trial, put them through a trial *a disco, and he lessons His provision, but there are meaning to decrease or to lessen. It decreases His provision for further or you could just go for your porn Robbia hand and the human being walks around saying my lord despises me My Lord has humiliated me or mistreated me. And that's why the answer is Kyla is wrong. But both are wrong. Both
both wordings are wrong. Neither are you being shown love when Allah gives you a lot, nor are you being shown wrath or or lack of love when you're being a little. Both situations. What they have in common is the same word that exists at the beginning of each verse is the word teller. You're just being tested. It's just a trial. Here, I'll trial you with a lot. And after a while, I'll trial you with little, I'll trial you with something you like. And then I'll try I'll use something that you don't like an either or, and in both scenarios, Allah subhanaw taala is just trialing you, and it's not a show of love or a show of hate. The fact that you're alive is Allah subhanaw taala showing you
love you already you've already been shown love you've already been shown an abundance of love more than you can ever pay for for the rest of your existence. Because you're here because you're alive and you're an entity, you have your own consciousness and you identify as someone that's something that
was gifted to you, you'd not, you'd not create that for yourself. You just kind of woke up to life and you're alive. And you had all these life is a pretty nice deal. It's pretty nice deal. You walk around, you smell the things, you eat things, you drink water, you look beautiful. So there's a lot of there's a lot of perks of just being around. So when he dishes out things to use upon and whatnot, it's not about
that it's not a competition of how much you have and how much you don't have. The competition is what are you doing with what you've got? If you're given something great? How did he use it? If you're given something not so great? How do you use that, and honestly, it doesn't really make a difference, what you're given what changes thing, what changes the the the outcome is what you did with what you were given. And that's what this is saying that don't don't lose that clarity, which is why at the end of the Surah,
Allah Subhanallah talks about enough Cinnamon Yeah, to enough Salma in, he talks about the nurse that has the soul that has a calmness that has clarity, because because someone who understands the world, that way is calm, is clear, has that satisfaction, because they understand that there's nothing to really spend too much time, I shouldn't be upset or too upset or too happy with anything, whatever, he gives me some high notes, I just have to make sure I use it well, and just use it the way he would want me to use it. He takes something away from me, I have to persevere, he gives me something I like then I shuffle, and I push it and I pay it forward. And that's the basic
understanding that Muslims have as they go through life, if you are able, as at a young age, to comprehend what I just said, because what I just said is easier said than done. By far, like, it's for sure. It's easier said than done. But if you're able to comprehend what I just taught, then you will live a much better life than you could possibly ever possibly imagine. If you can just understand that in life, you'll be given an ACES, you know, given, you'll be given twos and threes, sometimes you have a really nice hand and sometimes you don't just play them the best you can both types of times Allah Subhanallah just trialing you, he does not despise you. And he doesn't think
you're better. He doesn't seem to be better than others, if he gave you more than others. If you have more money doesn't mean he likes you more. If you have less money, it doesn't mean he likes you less. It just means this is the test that you have. So what are you going to do with it? We label stuff we label what we're given in life, we label it, whether it's going to be hired for us or shelter for us. He doesn't label it for us to paint it with data. He gives us His cobalt, here's my decree. What are you going to do with it? You have the label gun, you can say this will be hired for me because I'm going to persevere. I don't like it. But I'm gonna persevere. There's gonna be a play
for me. This is a lot of money, I'm going to use it for hire, when I have time I have strength, I have impact I've influenced I have, or I've given a lot of money, it's gonna be sharp, I'm gonna go spend it and haram, I'm gonna go use it for the wrong reason. So the stuff that you're given your Milka, Yama, you'll look at them differently.
The experiences you have in life today, you'll look about art and human piano differently. It'll be it'll depend on how you dealt with them when you were given them. Some the best moment of your life now may turn out to be the worst moment of your life, your monthly Yama because you miss us that you're given. You'll look back and say that day today that Allah Allah gave me all of this wealth was the worst day of my life, because that's what I started to change. That's when I started to use it for the wrong reason. On the other hand, the worst day of your life today, your military, I'm going to look back and say that was the best moment, because Allah tested me hard. And it was
painful. But I persevered. But I stood my ground and I did what I had to do. And I'm getting all this ideal for it, you're welcome to look at that moment. That was the best moment of my life. And that's the way they were taught early on. So I'm gonna go through these these foundational sutras are important, what the these basic concepts of the Sahaba were being taught, and the prophet that you saw just being reminded a very important, proper understanding of the variables of life, if I just said, how do you deal with the what how you understand the variables, understand them? Well, so you know how to deal with them properly.
At the end of the second year, or third year, sorry, the product it is lottosend received sorted pleasure, at least part of it, and at the end of it, and said faster than be mad to morrow. Well, I mean, we should have been faster. I mean, go public, be much more with that which you have been commanded to spread? Why are you burning? We should, again, do not worry about those who may persecute you, the pagans who don't like it, you go go go public.
Seeming to me that the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam may had wanted to stay a little bit longer in the selective period. Scholars have talked about this verse and say that maybe the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam had planned the selected period to be a little bit longer, maybe four or five years, but Allah says that at the end of the third said, No enough, you've done this, you built around 200 people at that time was around 200 Muslims, right, the end of the third year, third year, the prophet is also being told now you need to go go publicly. And and that will Jerry as they call me, the public the public phase, or the three years of public calling to the message, you'll say, well,
he stopped doing it after three years. No, it's just he couldn't do it anymore. Because once these three years are over, he'll he'll be he's going to try his best to publicly talk about Islam by by three years. The amount of persecution would be so bad that he wasn't able to do it anymore. He wasn't able to speak. So how did you start started the first Cold War that he gave us
So I have to assume that you speak to public to the public for the first time. It happens on Java suffer. Right? Right there. You have it a slough if you go and you perform,
because the harm is obviously has been built and is a little bit different than it was back then. But if you stand up to suffer, you're able to see the Kaaba because it's not that far away from the comments all within the same complex obviously. So you go and you from ombre, you pray, you do your bluff. And then when you do your site, you just walk a little bit within domestic overts. It's a different site, and you're able to see the Kaaba, when you're on the suffer that mountain of suffer or the amount of Morocco you can see the Kaaba from both. So the Pragati Salatu was Salam chose the mountain of software to stand in speak to Quraysh for the first time.
And this is where it is if you go to for ombre, then that's what it looks like, just for your own
property, it's a lot to Assam would would would send
would announce that he wants all of Quraysh to come and listen, he has an announcement.
So all of Quraysh came and those who could not come sent a representative. The person who couldn't come there was too busy sent someone to here so they will come back and that was a known practice, but all of Qureshi attended now did they not know that he was talking about prophecy before they did as I expected they already knew he had just not gone public with this yet Ali here salatu salam, but now he was finding so everyone is interested, see, what is he gonna do? Is he actually going to make this public because the moment he goes public things things are going to get the dynamics are going to change forever. So he gets on the on the on the mound of stuff. So Allah Hadees Abdul Salam, and
he begins and he starts calling upon the the different tribes have any of you have any more, you have any fear, you have any right? These are the larger groups or the larger tribes, he, they're all related to him, I need to talk to them one way or the other, as I showed you through the lineage, but they are the larger groups, so he calls upon all the tribes.
Then he says, I don't know where to go.
And the Highland we certainly had the Javelin to read one to Riera Alikum, a quantum deity. He said if I stood here on if I'm, if I were to tell you, that behind me now the mountain of software when you go see it, it's not that high. It's not like an actually mountain, it's a mount. It's more of a hill, it's not that big. So if you're standing on it, just it's not that it's not that high. When you do, you'll see it's not that you have to go up that high to get there. So he's standing on a mountain, not really a Mountain. And he's saying if I told you that behind me right now behind this mount, there is an army with Cavalry.
And there's an army with with the with horses and everything that are ready to basically raid you. Would you believe me? Cook them was on
the call now about clashing? Nigel Robina alayka, because you've been caught, they will say, Oh Qasim, we've never known you to ever lie before. So we would be would believe you and you'd be why would you you've never lied to us before. And this is obviously from the testimony that he got from the money who Serratos them when they built the Kaaba, if you go back, there's reasons why these things happen early on earlier. So he said that I used to lie to us and I'm in the next video we'll look on Bing ad either been studied. If you believe me, then I need to explain to you that I am a Warner for you
beignet, they either had been studied trying to prevent a painful punishment from coming your way. And then he starts to explain how to use the law to asylum law. In the law, he started to talk before he didn't get through the first two or three sentences of his speech Alayhis Salam was set up.
Someone stands up and interrupts him.
They are all of us didn't have a lot of laws.
They were lawless people for the most part, they had a few norms that were accepted by all. One of them is that you're not allowed to send someone back who was coming from camera, everyone had access to the haram. Another one is that you don't interrupt people in public sessions. When someone is speaking speaking publicly, you don't interrupt if you do then you basically forfeited your right to be there and you forfeit it also your your dignity, integrity in front of people like you basically. So the Pragati is taught to us, based on all norms should be able to conclude his point, he should be able to explain what he wants to see what he wants to say. But he wasn't given the chance he saw
to Islam. And it didn't come from from far. Meaning the interruption would not come from someone who was on the other side of the rails will come from his own family. Your hurts the most. The knife that comes from the closest people to you. It's the most painful of all out of all the times you are mistreated in your life, the one that comes from your own blood stings the most. Because what are you going to do about it? What are you going to do? Are you going to wreck your own family?
To get your there's no point. If you fight with them, you ruin your family. And if you let it go, it continues to sting you. So there's no winning there's no when there is no win when you fight with your family. There's no win. Remember, this is no no one is triumphant when people
quarrel within their own families. If you fight with your siblings or with your parents, or with your cousins, no one wins. Everyone loses, you lose like everyone, it's a loss for everyone. So the prime value slows down the Sanger speaking. He's like, look, I'm good. And I
will stand up. And he would say, he'd use a word that technically I shouldn't use in this message. Because it's an Arabic it's a curse word. You use a word, that's a curse word. If you've watched movies, and that are translated into Arabic, whenever someone uses profanity, they use this word to translate their profanity every time is to use that word that's used. But that's what I would have stood and said to the Prophet alayhi. Salatu was Salam. He told them San Antonio, Christian, he said, I cursed you for the rest of the day. And he either Joe Montana, this is why you brought us all here, or you took us away from our business in our work to tell us this, to those tell us that
basically saying for this nonsense that you're sharing with us, some of them
he's been given clear revelation to go and speak to people publicly. And he gets interrupted. And he gets scorned by His own uncle said, hola, hola, Sybase mind.
Now, what exactly did the Prophet alayhi salatu salam say back? How did he respond to this?
He said nothing.
He was interrupted. So we stopped talking. And he came off the mound. Because they got the idea. They got the message. And you know, the campaign ad, I mentioned it, I'm here as a Warner, I have a messenger, I have a message is here to protect you from a punishment.
He wasn't able to conclude it correct. But they got the idea. He's been dropped it and trusted by family member, if he starts yelling at his uncle, Uncle yells back and it turns into a nice little is in the mud. Don't Don't, don't be pulled down into the mud,
then life, you're gonna find this happen what? Some people are really good. They know how to exist in the mud. So he tried to pull you down with them. And then they'll beat you based on experience, because they've been in the mud longer than you have. So don't be pulled down. If you're not someone who, you know, was willing, you don't compromise your ethics, you don't compromise your principles. And don't, don't allow someone to provoke you. And make you say, and do something that will bring take down your dignity and integrity and get you to say stuff and behave in ways that you wouldn't normally do. Don't ever give anyone that remote control. No one should have the ability to press a
button and make you act in a certain way or not act in a certain way. When it comes to your principles and your about the way that you act behave, you should you should control that no one should be able to control them. If I can provoke you, if I can provoke and make you mad, even if you come and you basically wipe the floor with me. Now, you use me as a mop and you wipe the floor with me I still want because I can control you. You think you're in control of yourself, but you're not I get to control you. You see you're sitting now nice and quiet. And you're all composed. And well, I can easily change that. I have that power over you. Now you don't give that to anybody. No one
should have that ability. No one should have in their hands, the ability to provoke you and make you behave in a way that you would never behave. Learn this, this is very important that all the remote controls regarding your personality, you should be in your pocket, no one gets to control you. Or no one gets to say how you're going to behave over the next five minutes. But they said this I know they said that. Exactly. They said that is this is the way that you just behave right now the way that you would behave normally, if I if I showed this behavior to you 10 minutes before, would you say that it's something that you would you, you accept? You say no, I don't like that behavior. But
it's not my fault. It is. It is. The other person is trying to provoke don't let them provoke you. Don't let them change who you are. Don't let people dictate what type of person you're going to be the person you're going to be the person that you choose to be, make that choice. And then let people make their own choices. And do not allow someone to lead you down a path where you compromise your principles and values and speak or act in ways that you would never do. Because when you say later on, well, they made me that doesn't count. All right, it doesn't count. It doesn't count legally, it doesn't count ethically. And for sure you will milk piano it does not count either. It
doesn't. You have to be in control of you. And you take away the remote controls for everyone's hands. So they don't have buttons to press and get you to do something like I'm saying even if that's what they even if some provokes you, and you beat them up. You're you're still lost that one.
This goes a long way. Everyone here can think of an example. I'm sure parents you know exactly what I'm talking about.
I am guilty of this like everyone else. Some kids they carry remote controls around.
Literally they take the ticket and will control which is bothersome for every father in the room. But even figuratively speaking, again, they know how to press your buttons. When you discipline your kid, discipline your kid not based on them pressing a button and provoking you because they know a child will differentiate between you reacting with anger because they were able to provoke you versus you calmly disciplining them because they did something wrong. It's for their own good kids know that
difference. And I am just as guilty as everyone here but I'm, I'm saying this to myself and first, kids no kids know when you're disciplining based on their best interest and based on the fact that you are just fed up. So learn this piece is important, the provider you sought to surround I'm telling you why am I talking about this luck, because this is a hallmark of his character it has slowed to a hallmark of his character. You had nothing on him?
Nothing, you could not, you could not get a response out of him that he was not willing to offer either you saw through some normally you they tried, and people throughout his life tried him time and time again. I tell stories sometimes. And I say I do not know how he how he I don't know. I don't understand. I do not understand I honestly don't have the ability understand some of the things that he did, how he was able to hold his to stay calm, to stay cool not to be upset, I don't know. But because he learned how to do this on his thoughts on his life where he did not offer anyone the control over his personality or his character. He was able to sort of stand up and scream
at him. No problem. You thank people for coming and get off the mountain and leave on a histologic
strike to right strike one was last week. I wouldn't have during the feast now Strike two. Yet he will see we'll see how many times the Buddha will provoke him to his face out of his throat to surround the property of sloth with ramble. So you will see nothing.
Right after he came off the mountain alayhi salatu salam he received another Surah
that yeah, the the law had you
know now and who am I to Who am I said. So, now on that primer, I do have my little help on CGD her Hello method.
Let me tell you the story of who isn't important. You have to understand this one
would have loved the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, probably more than any other anyone else was in his family. Meaning if you had met the Prophet have you sought to Islam three years or two years before
and you just observed him with his families with his family, you would have known that I wouldn't have you would, obviously that this man loved him the most. They were very close. And I'll explain to you how close they were very soon you're gonna see how close they are very, very close. And I will have loved the profit it is slow to ascertain and the profit is from love, they will have the problem that will have what this surah teaches. This sutra teaches the idea of the scale that we all carry inside of us. When you're born into life. Amongst the toolkit that you're given as a human being you're given a scale, it's not a literal scales, a figurative one exists inside of you. This
scale is what you use to make your decisions.
In the scale every time you every time you're in a situation of any sort. You put in the scale, the things that combatting topics that are trying to get
prevalence within your life for example, your lying sleeping, phone goes off for you.
The scale is there now. Now on this side over here you'll put a photo is a photo I should do it and you decide how much weight that is in your life you may give that a heavyweights you may give that a lightweight depending on how much you care about this you give it away on the other side. I'm really tired. And the moment I leave the home but the bed you never get you lose all all comfiness When you leave the bed right you can only get 20% back when you come back when you leave the bed you almost most of the coziness is gone. So you're thinking I was gonna sit on the bed. Even if I come back later it's not gonna be the same. So you're you're putting these things in depends on how much that
weighs. And then based on the accumulative the some weights of both the scales move back and forth. So for example if your is extremely valuable to you so its weight is very heavy. And all the other stuff they have weight but they're not even close so it goes down quickly you're up your prey.
Other people forget it doesn't exist at all. Doesn't have any weight. So it's always like this they never get to other people will you know your height your weight but the other two or three have a weight as well. Just similar so it kind of goes like this one day they get up one day they don't get up one day they get up back and forth.
Everything in life has a weight you assign it you assign what weight it has no one does that for you. You decide how how heavy is this for me and the Skill versus how late it is.
If someone assigns something, anything an infinite weight
it's very dangerous because that's the one thing that they will always they'll always prefer the always choose over everything else no matter what you put in front of it. Should you have an infinite weight for sure. As a Muslim for sure you do
well how is an infinite weight when it's the right thing to do.
All bets are off. All bets are off. What's the right thing to do this year and how could have infinite wait? I do that immediately. Don't even think about it. I Buddha hub
He had every reason to believe in him out of his Southwest Center.
He loved him.
He knew him really well. He knew he wasn't lying. He was a family member. So he could have just played it on the family ticket that I don't believe, but he's my family like, I will be glad I did that for a while. But
there was more than family ratio. I don't want to spoil this piece because I'm gonna leave it for later. There are more reasons. But what I have when you look at him, had every reason to believe in MIT he sought to a center. The question actually is why didn t? Like it makes no sense. Honestly, when you look at a Buddha, it makes no sense. Why would he not believe in Muhammad, some of the audience I wish he knew he was he was truthful. He loved him a lot. He was his family. There's no reason. Like, there's no everyone else had a reason I Bucha who came from the wrong family. He had a reason it's not a good reason. I'm not saying I'm not validating his reason. But he had one. That
was a bad reason. But he had one. People who didn't like him. I just thought it was them for other reasons. And were envious of his of his piety. Those who didn't know him well enough to be able to know that he was truthful. They all had reasons, but I wouldn't have didn't have one. There was absolutely no reason why he wouldn't accept Islam. And yet He not only didn't accept it, he combated the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, because there is something in his life that he gave an infinite weight to. There's something in his life that he drew the Infinity weight, and he put it on it. Can you figure it out from the from the surah?
What is it from the surah? Yeah, my other man who Malou maca. So what is what is his? What is what is it his wealth and his business going to give him? Is it going to help him? Is it going to save him from us? 10 But yeah, that means that this is the worst because that's what he said to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam he screamed at him said that word. So Allah said that but yeah duck, meaning your hands are going to be cursed. But you do whatever and you will be cursed as well. man Okay, now what is what is your wealth going to do for you? So yes, I know that when you enter a fire that has a flame on it, Clements is similar to his name
one or two who have mad at that hub and his wife the one who was who carries the the firewood why because she's she she stood by him OMO Jimmy will tell you the stories. It's actually a very I'm gonna come back to this specific piece later. I'll come back to this one later. Fiji Yeah, hello, message message is the string that is used for the skills this was called method.
He had drawn that infinity symbol on money.
So do what you want. Don't mess with my money, don't with my business. Whatever you want, what do you want? Oh, I'm with you till the end. But whatever you do, better not mess with my business or my money. If you mess with my financial future, all bets are off, I don't care. I will sell out there. I'll sell everything. I'll sell you out. Also everyone, I don't care. This is more the most important thing for me. He knew I wouldn't have that dough, hate the profit it is what he was teaching is going to end is going to at the beginning at least going to ruin and sever all of the alliances and treaties that Quraysh has with all of the surrounding and neighboring tribes. The
Assam will fall, there'll be no corrupt religious leadership left for Christ to use to make their money to get their record that she thought was safe continuing, because it was very dangerous to take a caravan from Mecca to Damascus. It was impossible. You needed allies on both sides of the road to get it there and safely and back. He knew that this was going to end his business and and he hadn't had ambitions. You had financial ambitions that wouldn't happen. You don't want this to end this way. He was finally let's go back a little bit.
But no Hersham are people of high social integrity, no money
and profit. It is awesome family. But some people have high social and very respectful. Great names are often more palatable to people that everyone respects and these are ethical human beings. They have an amazing moral compass these people I swear by their lives. That's why the Prophet alayhi salam stood and said, Would I lie to you? No, you would not lie to us. We know you and your family. You don't do that. But they had no money. They were poor financially, they have a lot of money. The first one, the first person to have any Hashem who made money, real money. He made enough money to be indebted in the DUA that he made enough money to be in the Parliament of Mecca. He sat there he
was he was a member. He was an ongoing member who had the right veto rights like everyone else, based on his wealth.
I will buy them sat there too, but I will let him sat there based on on the on the integrity of bundle Hashem and his father will have got that with his wealth and his money. He felt that he had done something. I'm trying to sell it to you that he so you can feel sorry for him a little bit. Yeah, well, you feel a bit sorry for him. Yeah, he learned he worked hard for his wealth. Yeah, he worked hard for it, but you don't give anything an infinite weight in your skills, because it will be your demise. It will be your doom. Because at one point Allah subhanaw taala put you to the test, where the scale will be up
there, and that one thing that you love the most is in one scale. And then Huck was in the other scale, and you have to make a choice, which is heavier. He made his choice. He made his choice. He made it clear, no, my money. I'm sorry, I worked too hard for this. I worked too hard. You have no idea what I did go through. I grew up poor. I was mocked because I was poor. I sweat and I bled until I had this money. You're not taking away taking this away from me. You're not taking away my status because of what because of this idea that you brought.
Yeah, he's wrong. He's wrong. He was wrong. I shouldn't have done that. But I'm telling you, this is where it's coming from. Don't Don't demonize people when you hear their stories, learn to understand where they're coming from, so that you can take away the lesson. Or else if you just say, Oh, he's this bad. No, he's just not as bad. He's someone who made a mistake, a fundamental mistake.
What about you?
Anything in your life, you've assigned infinite weight to
anything that you would not give up regardless? Even if Allah said, so even if you were Is there something like that?
They're better not.
No Brahim Ali said, I'm right.
He almost gave something that that value. Oh, he did the almost. He loves his son.
He fell in love with his son. Just love the sun more than anything else in the world. He kept it he held it up as all Middle Eastern fathers, but he held it in. They didn't really expect but he loved he loved him more than anything else, smiled and he said he just he loved this kid. So Allah subhanaw taala told him take us take a knife and go to the Manhattan Minar and slaughter.
So he did. If he got into a fight and you read the verses, there's no arguments.
And a lot of verses in the Quran, the prophets will be told to do something, and they will and they will discuss it with Allah subhanaw taala they'll say something
about being in Debian even early when no article happened last week. So Allah Allah mailed my son, he will tell him something, you will have a discussion. You read the verses in Surah
sulfat There is no discussion. Allah subhanaw taala shows it to him in the dream. He speaks to a smile.
Smile he says yes, for a muslim what a lonely job in the first after immediately. They both submitted he took his site took the knife
to transport me immediately from Ibrahim telling us mainly the story to his man his forehead on the on the Mahara and the place where he's going to be slaughtered immediately. There's no transition, like the transition is immediate. Wasn't there some back and forth? Wasn't there some well he's my son by him. Why my son? Wouldn't you not? Would you not have this conversation with Allah? Why am I kid it's my kid. What did you do? Why do I have to kill him? I loved him I've been waiting not a word not a word. Because Because Allah subhanaw has command is infinite. The weight of it for Ibrahim is infant didn't ask the question. No blame is made was not slaughtered. That wasn't the
point of the story. But the story was the point of it was supposed to show us you see, that's, that's how you're supposed to be. You're supposed to. That's your valuing of Allah subhanaw taala his teachings and how it has to be that heavy, has to be the heaviest thing in the world. Nothing is even remotely close to it. I would have gave that infinite science a very valuable thing by the way. He gave it to something to the wrong thing. Give it to his money.
And that was his doom. That was his demise. That's what ruined that would have.
Because he couldn't, couldn't help it. Yep.
Usually not usually, you only have one thing in your life that you love the most. And you get it that infinite value and then you compromise everything for it. Usually not you can do but the only thing as a Muslim you should have is, is righteousness is following what Allah subhanaw taala taught that nothing else should should come close. You can love a lot of things you can love your spouse and love your children, love your family, love your country and love your business and love, love all these things. No. So you got to love them. But they have to have the right weight. When they if a moment comes where they are being compared and the scales with something that is how there should
be no question in your mind. There should be no question in your mind of what you're going to do you know what you need to do? A Buddha herb it was clear to him too, by the way. He had no question in his mind. I wouldn't have was not like he wasn't, should I know he knew exactly was gonna do. He knew what he valued. They know what he didn't. So he went right in. He has now spoken out rudely and disrespectfully to the provider you saw twisted on his face a 43 year old man twice so far. And that's not going to be the end of it. But that's what the sutra teaches. Know the value make make sure you know and learn from the story of a Buddha hub.
If you think about it, like Who else have the machete keen of the pagans have their name in the Quran? Who else would you name in the Quran? We didn't move here his name in the Quran. Allah azza wa jal, the father I'm lost in the Quran
about every night you know who who's the only person who His name is in the Quran said the only big
is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam his family?
Why? Because subhanho wa Taala there's a lesson here. There's no nepotism, there's no nepotism in Islam, there's no impetus. Your bloodline your family is not going to save you. Even if you're the prophet Isaiah saw his uncle, whom he loved Allah, Allah has taught to Islam and mourned when he died, and wished he could have saved. When you decide to make this decision, then you're going to pay for it. If you sign something, that infinite weight and you, you give it advantage over everything else that you shouldn't, then you'll pay for it, you'll pay for it for sure. And he did. And he did.
The prophit psychosom comes out to the open in you know, the euro, Luxembourg. And they either have been studied Quraysh, here is Polish, they gather they say Well, now that he's not doing it on a quiet basis, he was before. Now we have to we have to have a a formal position.
Now you have to have a formal stance what what is what is the the elders of Makkah Think of what the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, it was what was happening quietly, selectively, just a few people, there was no need for a public position of what he was doing. But now that he took it publicly, now Faraj has to respond, they have to have a position. So they can't be neutral anymore. They can't they can't afford to be neutral, they have to make a decision. They made the wrong one.
They decided upfront to oppose him and his thought was to them, and they started to go after him.
And this from now, we start the years of persecution.
And this will go on basically until the Prophet It is thought to Islam leaves muck. So he will spend at least the next 10 years, for better or for worse, undergoing persecution himself and the people with him. All the stories I'll be telling you and within the Mechi period moving forward is going to be with a timeline where the product of your Serato Sam was deprived and denied his basic human rights and the Sahaba with him remember that as we tell these stories, whatever they're doing they were he was being told they're not allowed to talk about this publicly. You see we have a masjid is open to public issue is we're not doing this in hiding. This is not a message that is hidden from
people and we do though it's not hush hush it's up it's open it's a charity it's on it's a message it's known you can choose I can preach Islam open like a stand outside with the brochures and pitch me all this stuff. We can pray wherever we want Yes some people will like it but we can we're not being persecuted we're being told that you don't have the right to be a Muslim have the right to talk about your deen he was being told to his face at least not to Islam. You can't talk about this publicly. You want to do this under the under the radar here and there. Go ahead but you can't talk about this publicly. You can't practice it you can't talk about this publicly. Sorry. You don't have
that right. And of course that is where me basically the profit out of your thoughts on part ways parted ways with corporations because that's not acceptable. It's never acceptable to take away from people their freedom of speech. When we talk about freedom of religion, freedom of religion, religious freedom of speech. I don't know what you religion if you say religion is a belief on the inside? Well, I don't know what you believe on the inside. No one does it let's they're gonna install chips inside of us to figure out what we think what you think is up to you. There is no value in me telling you Oh, you're free to think what you want. Of course, I'm free to think what I
want. You have no business no, there's none of your business. I think whatever I want, I don't want the freedom to say what I think
I'm going to think what I want whether you like it or not, whether it's legal or illegal thinning your business as my mind you can't get in here but I want the freedom to express what I think freedom of religion is really freedom of speech and freedom of identity which was he was he was just denied that
you would begin his public data with the Sahaba you sought to Assam and the teaching would be pointed out you know in the Allah the Quran Jana take this to this what you take to your to the people the poverty is over tell us what you take to the people publicly because it's not only was it wasn't only him doing the public Dawa know the Sahaba were responsible to do bullet Tao as well three years of learning three years of education now they're gonna go teach and he told them the attitude will be Tim shear. Bashir who were to the pharaoh Kulu hearted to the deen welcome without trouble Well, Adam, you tell people say Allah, Allah. And one day you will rule the world, say law.
In the law one day you will be the most powerful force that ever existed. Say, Allah and I promise you, prosperity I promise you agenda to not feel don't repel people from Islam. Don't scare them. Don't remove them in the deen the initial dollar that the Muslims gave in Croatia was that of a positive attitude was that of a hope was that was an uplifting message that good will come from this. I feel like we lost that a little bit. Just a little bit.
A little bit. Sometimes I feel like that's that's not the way that this is being taught. When we talk about when we're talking about Gianni Tao, or accepting Islam or coming closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. We're failing to explain that this is what's going to bring you the most happiness. This
was going to make you the most successful. This is what's going to give you the strength that you need, the confidence that you require. It's going to give you the process, the perspective that they're going to allow you to achieve that to reach your potential life. That's what Lena and Allah does. That's the point of it.
Imagine if it was the opposite. For a moment, just imagine Allah subhanaw taala told us well, you know what, you want to enter Jannah I'm going to give you a way that is really useless, give you a way of life, that's just difficulty, for no good reason. It's just going to be hard for nothing, just to just live a life that's all difficult and hard, and in joyless, your intergender Theon, but doesn't get to live up front, we will still have to do it. But he didn't.
But he didn't. The point that I'm trying to make is he did not. The lifestyle that Islam teaches is that which will allow you to be the best person you can be. For us to refuse is actually an oxymoron is insane. You want to live a bad life and dunya and then be punished to milk, the AMA, why lose twice when you can win twice. When you accept this time you live a better life, you're a better person, you go farther, you're much more in touch with who you are as a human being. And your morals and values and principles are are of such beauty and integrity that why wouldn't you want to be and your will to me go to John. He didn't make a soprano Dido where he balanced it out. By difficult
life. Good, masculine, good life. But no, he didn't do it that way. Good Life good, ASTRA bad life by Dakila. So that you have no way why wouldn't you choose this, there's no reason why you wouldn't choose this. It's very odd if you choose this one here. So remember that what you're being told to do. So I do what I used to, I used to teach,
like grade fives and sixes and sevens and eights years ago, and I would do small surveys within the classroom. I don't know if I should have was allowed to do that. I did that anyway.
But just small, I used to get them pieces of paper, just ask him a question. I didn't put an answer. Sometimes the answer would have like a funny about drawing or something. I don't care. I just want I want the answer. And the question would be like, how am I what are the questions I asked was how many things are haram in Islam?
And I did this over four years, in three different classes. So seven, eight, and 56789. I had to because they would move on, I'd have to wait. And so I did over four years, teaching classes altogether around maybe 110 115. Students, I still have the papers at home somewhere 65% of the answers.
65% of the answer these children was everything. That's how they view it. That's how they see the dean. Everything's wrong. Everything.
You say the problem, is it? Of course not. There's like maybe 10 things in Islam that you shouldn't be doing.
And there's good reason for you not to do them. But the way that we are the way that we're preaching this is coming from the wrong angle. It's coming from the wrong angle. We're not doing this right. Because Islam is not about making everything haram Islam is making sure it's about protecting you, and allowing you to live your life to its fullest extent, so that you can be the happiest and most productive person in the world and the one who has aspirations and hope and perspectives that are balanced and an attitude that is correct. And enjoy. That's what Islam offers you. Why wouldn't you want this? But then we appreciate as in just rule rules of nose. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. That's
what that's what they walk away with. And I've always felt that Jani, the sad persecution began the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would begin to be treated in a way that he was never treated all through his life. People who, who are extremely sensitive, cannot put up with mistreatment. Someone who lives their life with a certain degree of honor and integrity. They do that because they don't want to be mistreated. They they don't mistake people they're very kind to people because they don't want to be treated. They want they don't want their reputation to be smeared. The bravado you saw through Instagram was going to go through the worst pain of his life. Because he didn't care about how much
money he had. He didn't care about how much people he cared about his his reputation, how he was who was being talked about. And that's where they're going to hurt him the most and go after him on a slaughter with somebody saying things about him that that he never thought people will say well, so the last one was revealed within this period right after what out right after he made the announcement Allah salatu salam he was given. So Clouser here, something to help you on your road is going to be taught from now on. So it also tells us one thing,
the value of time and benefiting from the experiences of people before you. He takes an oath supplement, I swear by time and also it's not so much loss. I swear by time in insert analytical certainty. Every human being is in a state of loss of what
time you're in a state of continuously losing time. In the Latina, middle Saudi hunt, what I was told will help me with our service, except those who first of all, click in with the first piece. They know why they're alive. They know Allah Subhan did have Eman? Well I'm so sorry that they know what they're here to do. And they're performing it
And then to win time you need to more things you need to do to asleep and happen to ask people Sobrato LC means exchanging experience and advice. It's not a one way road. It's an exchange of experience regarding what is Huck, what is worth dying for, and Saba, what is worth living for? Exchanging the experience on that fight, walk down a road,
and I come back, and you're just starting to walk in, I say, Hey, I walked to the end of this one, it's a dead end, complete waste of your time. And you're like, oh, just like Allah. Now, I would have wasted a year walking down this road. Now I'll try something else. You just one time.
Just one time, you're gonna lose, you're gonna walk down the end of it.
Now you'll understand why your parents lose their minds when they talk to you and listen.
Because whether you know, we know this or not everything you're trying to do. I'm going to whisper this because I want the older people not to hear me say this to you. Whether you know it, or not all the things you're trying to do your parents tried to do before you they did it already. Right? They did it already. So when you like your parents, like don't do this, do not do it. You're like, Well, why? Not gonna say well, because I did it. No, no, no, because it's wrong. Do not do it. And then you do it and they lose their minds. Because why? Why would you do it, we've already walked down this path, it's a dead essence. There's nothing good at the end of it. Don't walk down this path.
Let me let don't let my life be in vain. Don't let the time that I really should be in vain. Let it help you. We're in we're in a constant loss of time. Unless we're willing to exchange experiences. Every person in the world, every person in this room has a gem has an experience that can benefit you have done things in their lives that you haven't, I can give you the summary, the bottom line the to the elevator,
the elevator summary, tell you what, so you don't have to go make the mistake. You don't have to go and spend years trying to figure it out where I could have anyone who's been to a Middle Eastern country and tried to go through a governmental based doc with paperwork notes. If you have no more Amada, somewhere in Syria, or Egypt or, or you try to, you know what I'm talking about, because you look for someone who's walked through this path before, and they'll tell you, let me make it easy for you, from the beginning, go get 1234 Because if you don't, you will be continued to be sent around from one place to the other for the next three years of your life.
You ask for someone when it's time for you, they wouldn't time that time could have been lost could have been wasted. And it's not. Because you someone, someone helps you or someone gave you that, that piece of advice. And that's what he's talking about here. They've also been helpful to us all the sub there was an exchange of advice. So it's not one way, it's not a one way road, it's not about me telling you what to do. No, it's about me sharing my experience with you. And you are sharing your experience with me so that we can benefit from one another so that we can take the gems from each other and not waste time because that's all we got. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was
told this early on and this was a very, very important piece of advice he was given that you saw to a cinema front.
So that the character are talking about next time because it takes a little bit time. Are we are we fine for Okay, so, so and there. Inshallah, I want to start at 640.
