Salatu was Salam and to the sahaba. And then I'll tell you about things that happened because of that. And then we'll go back and talk about stuff that happened maybe before. So I won't do it fully in sequence. So it will be this has happened in month, the first month of this fifth year, and the second and the third, because we don't really have that, that accuracy, we just don't know what happened basically, between the year number three and nine, pretty much and you know, everything that occurred, but we don't have perfect accuracy in terms of exactly the sequence of all of these events. So just not to confuse people, I will kind of talk about them in clumps in terms of the
topics so that it's a little bit more relatable, and it helps you helps you to remember what what it is that that occurred.
So we talked about this yesterday, last week, sorry. And I had gone through these points here in terms of what happened to the Prophet alayhi. Salatu was Salam himself, as he was being called names, he was being called Vishnu. And they were using recall, Yeah, you heard the news, the news de la la, they call in Nicola, you know, they will call him has no knowledge of salatu salam, and they would run away from him and do stuff that were extremely childish. They would call him other names as well, he has talked to us and that I choose not to bring up here because there's really no point of doing that.
With his uncle would persecute him, I'm going to look upon himself with with, with the help will help along, they would bring in someone to just basically distract people for what he's talking about the man who just tell stories, and they would claim that he's just the storyteller that makes up stuff as he goes along, they would accuse him of being of working with foreign forces and taking revelation from some foreign person. So they kept on when you listen to these accusations, what you've figured out we start to feel is that they're, they're a little bit a little bit bankrupt. And, and that's how you know that the opposition to your any idea has nothing is when they start
going after stuff like that, when they start when they drop, the idea that you brought the drops, actually going against that, or arguing that or discussing that. And they just start to look for things in terms of your past or your character, or they start making accusations that have no basis at all, just as a form of propaganda just to get people distracted or or just changed people's minds based on false information. Because when when you have a good argument, you don't do that you have a good argument, you don't have to make stuff up, you just you just make the good argument. And then people will will later basically listen to that. And the stronger argument usually always wins
almost all the time. If people are listening to p2p, to individuals Converse on something, whoever has the better ideas or points is going to is going to be the winner. And people will listen to that. But the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had the better argument. That's the whole point that Islam had this highly superior argument and correction to it. So they didn't, they almost never engaged. And they are they tried to, he would corner them quite quite a bit on the heels of AUTOSAR and forced them to engage. But they would try to get out of it as much as possible, because they just had no good comebacks, because he just asked them simple questions. And they had no answers to these
questions that he's answered. I asked him if he would offer them the alternative. And he would, we would argue, evidence, and he would give examples, and they would just sit there helpless. So they would end up doing all of this. So throughout these sessions, where we talk about the use of persecution,
the conclusion that we'll come to or that you will start feeling is that it's not really the profit out of your slaughter. westermo had the lower hand in this. He wasn't the weaker person here.
Qureshi was, even though they had more people, even they had, even though they were more popular, they had more wealth, they had more weapons, they had more status. But because he had the stronger idea here salatu salam, he was always taking the initiative, he was always and they were always stuck trying to figure out how to deal with what he was doing. So to set up so we, we often see these see these years as the years where he was weak on it, you'll start to use that term phonology. I've never found that to be accurate. Yes, he was being persecuted we've never week, because his idea was strong. And the strength of the idea will take quite far. If you have a strong idea that
that allows you to do way more than you think, is possible. Yes, maybe you don't have as many numbers or you don't have as much experience. So you're not you're not as wealthy. But none of those matter, a strong idea trumps all, and it was just a matter of time, you just have to make sure that you're willing to persevere, and that you have grit.
You have that resilience, you will stick to your idea, you won't give up, no one can stop you. You're you're not going to you're not going to wave the white flag at some point because you got tired or because they they were able to to sway you. And I think I think learning that from him Alia salatu salam, especially in this time that we're living is extremely, extremely important and very, very worthy throughout these times rather out of your Salah to us and even in his in his sila. He doesn't he doesn't really point out a narration for this for this story, but it's in it's in his in his seal on the seal of him and he shot him as well. He points out that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu
would spend most of the nights as sort of resemble commanded doing pm and Khadija would sometimes see him working all day long and then praying most of the night and she would tell him you Allah stood Allah Allah limits where you will not take some time and sleep by according to your Salatu was Salam. Melba is someone who know me, Khadija the time of sleeping is gone. Like that's behind me now there's no time for me to there's too much to be done. I carry too much of a burden to sleep. And he would he would do that I used to lock those up to the point where these verses would be revealed in the Quran and these are similar if you look at what I like about Fiat enough second, Li Hakuna
meaning is sort of the shot off for example where it's so little cut off that you recite almost every week. But I like about your Neff second 30 him in law mute me no because that hadith here sir, what is basketball enough? Sec means bad not enough SEC mean? Are you going to
are you going to ruin your your own well being by working so hard to the point where you basically die. So in Arabic, the literal translation is kill yourself, but not in the form of suicide. That's not what basketball means. It doesn't the former is not a suicidal term, it means you're gonna work yourself to death. That's what it means that you are you're going to put you're going to put your well being your health, you're gonna jeopardize that Jeopardy, because they don't want to believe in you. Because that's how he understand his role. And his thought was that he was responsible for people, and where they end their destinations and their level of EMA he felt responsible is that
feeling that I'm more interested in? It's the feeling that I think we should take a little bit of time and contemplate and reflect upon the behavior itself. We can't even come, we can't hold a candle to the amount of effort he put in out of your Salah to Asana we can't there's nothing we can do. But the feeling is important. He felt responsible for everyone around him, believers and non believers. And if someone believes he felt responsible for them in terms of helping them improve and walk down the path safely, and if they weren't Muslim, he felt responsible for the fact that they weren't and that it was something he wasn't doing right and he had to figure out a way to help this
person find Allah subhanho wa taala. So we would go I can't say they would go out and beyond because that's not even the appropriate description. The appropriate description is bad enough SEC as the Quran points out, that Allah kabocha and so what are you going to work yourself to death that they don't want to be? It's not just worked himself out of his slug
is also there's sorrow in it. Meaning if you take the root of the word in Arabic, it's not just that you're working so hard that you don't take care of yourself. There's also sorrow in the in the word, meaning you're upset, you're sad, meaning emotionally adding insult to Islam. He was that responsibility that I'm pointing out he felt emotionally responsible. And the crowd was gonna say, but I like about your enough second 30 him Illa mute me, no, we had that hadith, the SFR you're going to work yourself into an early grave out of sorrow SF out of sorrow, because of the fact that they won't listen to what you have to say, Don't do that. I mean, Allah subhanaw taala is telling
the Prophet alayhi salam, take it easy. You're doing well, if you don't, but don't ruin yourself. Don't forget that you need to take care of yourself as well, and the people and your family and because he felt responsibility, he's talked to us. So, you know, before we start patting ourselves on the back and saying, Okay, I'll take it easy. He wasn't speaking to you. subhanho wa taala. He was speaking to the Prophet and he'll salatu salam. So just so before we decided to take a little bit of a break, he wasn't speaking to me or you, he was speaking to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And if you want to actually take this verse, and apply it on ourselves, and maybe we work as
hard as he did, and then we take a step back, but what I'm really interested in when we look at this is that emotional piece is that that sense of responsibility that is so valuable, and it's so rare. So we are to champion something, to champion something, to take ownership of something.
Whatever it is, the owner is in need of many things, to take ownership of one of these things. You're not dependent on someone else. You're not waiting for someone to give you the green light or to provide something for you. It doesn't matter what people think, say or do regarding this issue to you or with you or without you. Because this is your you've taken ownership of this issue. This is your thing. You will continue to do it till the day you die whether people support it or they don't whether they help you or they don't whether they appreciate it or they don't. That is a very rare quality. It is very rare, but it's prophetic is prophetic in nature. It stems from his heart and he
has salatu salam, he wants to take something from him out of yourself and live with rest of your life. Take ownership of something, you can take ownership of all of the deen like he did Allah has a lot to say and but you can find something. You can find some aspect of what this ummah needs and take ownership of it. It doesn't matter whether I support you or not, whether I give you time about it or not. Whether I talk about it on the member for you or they help you fundraise for it, it doesn't matter. You're not gonna get frustrated say like I tried this or this this community you know, because this is your thing. You own it.
If it doesn't work, you blame yourself you try again. Because I think it's luck was down could have easily said at some point I look I've been trying, they're not listening. But you know, your people, they don't listen, understand what I'm saying.
If you run a business, you know what I mean? Because you have different types of employees, someone who takes ownership of the actual task and just gets it done. Whatever trouble they have to go through to get it done. And then someone will come and say, I tried I made a phone call didn't answer. Maybe you try another number. You need to consider driving over like a different type of people in this role or a different type of people in terms of how much they feel that they have owed. I'm not saying that every employee has to do that. You're saying it, you know what it means if you if you have children, you know exactly what this means. Children take zero ownership or
anything, you ask them to do zero ownership.
vacuum the carpet, they'll put it in as far as they'll go as far as looking around the room for the vacuum cleaner. If it's not there, they'll sit. Couldn't find it? Could you maybe look in the other room? No.
And if they're looking at the room they need, maybe they'll put it into the electricity doesn't turn on immediately. All right.
Here's a word in Syrian culture, they call it soccer.
My dad used to say this to me all the time. Because I was exactly the same.
I was no better than anything I'm describing for you when it came to working in something that was outside of my interest. token, I mean, you just you're just doing it because you have to just doing it to get rid of the of the person who's nagging at you, you don't really care if it works or not, you don't have ownership. These verses in the Quran, Weiss
are extremely rare, which is why I bring them to your attention. Because when does Allah subhanaw taala turn to someone and say, okay, okay, tune it down a notch. Take it down, it's fine. You don't need this too much. You can afford to do less than this. But he did it for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam twice during don't know, you can don't harm yourself, because he was now out of your salatu salam taking so much of a burden upon himself. He was getting physically unwell. He was getting emotionally unwell out of your Salah to us. And the court said no, take it take it back. Okay. Is that the degree of ownership he felt over this story? What aspect of this? Do you feel ownership
over, that you're responsible for, regardless of who stands by you and who doesn't. Because that's the piece that I'm talking about here not, you will try and do it. And you will run into multiple roadblocks in your life challenges and obstacles. And the people who you are actually serving will make it difficult for you to serve them. Right. And this is how it is. And if you don't have ownership, then it's just a matter of time before you give up. Everybody you lose your interest and say this is just a waste of time I was doing this real. I don't have to do this anymore, then go home and do something different. But if you feel ownership, and you champion something, you feel
that responsibility, emotional responsibility that he felt out of your salon, and you're in it till the end. And I think that's just something beautiful to think about when we talk about his story. How do you start to say no, I have to point out this piece here. Because it's important.
It would mark him Allah Azza salatu salam, now the Quran would point that out in the Latina yo Ramu chi Domina, Latina Manu, young harpoon. Indeed those who have chosen to break his loss of anodyne would laugh at those who would follow it, but either no will be him and when they walk by them get alarmism, they wink at one another, and they speak under their breath about them.
We now call Abu Ali and kala boo Fokin when they go home, they tell stories to laugh at them without Oh him when they see them public is called who in the house without elaborate alone, they say they have no idea what they're doing. They're a bunch of lost people, probably a slot to put up with a lot of them. And one day he was performing with a lot this hadith is authentic and collection Mohammed another's, and he's performing with off ideas salatu salam and some of the people have done in Nigeria. And I
want to make sure you understand that delta Nadeau was a big deal. When Arabia because it was a place where diplomacy occurred. It was a place where decisions were made. Not everyone was allowed to go into delta Nadeau and be a part of this group of leaders, the leaders of Makkah, and the leaders of the surrounding large tribes had a footstep there they had they had a seat, and these people would would gather and they would meet and they would talk and they would make decisions and these decisions would sometimes become law in the land. It was the closest thing that Arabians had the olive had to Allah because there's really no law that governs the whole region. But whatever
delta network came up with was the closest thing they had to it. And for sure, I knew these people had status in the valley is salatu salam was never amongst them. Like he wasn't he was in doubt on that. He was interested in this part of life out of you. So there's never a politician. That was never something he wanted to do. So he's making a lot of audio software. So there's some people sitting in Dublin and they're mocking him. They're saying stuff. Every time he comes around, they raise their voices in mockery, and they're missing
calling him names and the same things are disrespectful after the fourth or 5/5 Sorry. circumambulation, like if you went five times on the Kaaba, listen to this, he, he changes his
He comes close and they raise their voice instead of keep on going around the cabin to off. He heads right to them. And his thought was that the person telling the story is one of the people sitting in the room, who later on became Muslim. You walked into the room, the cooloola character, who have you been here salatu salam, he had this degree of just innate reverence. i Li You know, the Allahu Anhu would describe the fall in Morocco. But he had Hatton herba woman Kelapa humare, fatten hubba. If you saw him just never knowing who he was, you had this Heba wasn't fear. It was just reverence. It's respect. It's something that made you just feel like you need to feel properly. And if you get
to know Him, you love him. So Allah has and that's our idea. It's my favorite description that they'd normally would give to the prophet is also when you walked into the room, and he walked in, and they all got a little bit, a little bit scared. And he walked amongst them. They're sitting in chairs beside each other, talking and he would walk from behind them, and he put his head between them. And he would say, Yeah, I'm not sure what age the LM tenta who are people of color if you don't stop doing this? The LM tentar who enhancer if you don't stop saying these things and of Allah, He logic to come biddable. I've come to you with slaughtering
and they got us scared to call you matter of NACA Illa Halima Ania. Wilkerson, we only only do to be very patient and kinda will close him. So he stood there, Ali salatu salam, for a moment,
didn't say a word. They wouldn't say word of God in limbo for honorable Carson. Please go back to your tawaf in full respect. But if I'm alone, maybe somebody walked away.
I love this story. Some some people tell to see it. I don't tell this story. Because they think it's, it's a story that did you understand? The Prophet alayhi salatu salam did not
refuse to respond to their oppression and persecution out of fear, or out of cowardice, or of lack of the ability to speak back. No, he did it as a conscious choice of him not respond not will be when he was willing to go down into the mud with them, I'll have salatu salam, he just refused for Islam to be like that. And this is very clear example, I just thought there was that I'm just needed to put them in their place for a moment, because they weren't just common people know, these were the leaders of corrects. These were the the role models of the people. These were the said, That's what I was sitting there, acting like children. So he needed to kind of set them straight earlier.
So to stand for a moment. And they he had the he had the character, and he had the strength, the personality strength to do these things. But he chose not to. So every time I tell you a story, where they come in, they treat him in a horrific manner. And he doesn't say a word. Make sure you remember this, that he could have his thoughts and he did not lock the verbal, intellectual or physical ability to his thought was him to do any of these things. But he made a choice. I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to respond. I'm not going to stoop to this this low that you've all stooped to. I'm not because it's just that ruins the beauty of what this Dean is. Eric was the
beauty of this revelation. So he said no.
And as you hear these stories, and he kind of
occurs to have how difficult it was very early on during those years. The Quran would do the same thing done by Apollo NACA is called the killer your woozily mean public? Oh, that's being sent to you. Oh, Mohamed, is what was said to the prophets before you mean don't take make a big deal of it. Everything you're hearing the prophets before you heard that Allah azza wa jal Kadena alum, uneca Yahweh sada Luca de Maya Poon and we know that your chest becomes tight when you get upset, or what by what they say to you and about you as a baby Hamdi, Rob Baker, who are co Minister GDN wa muda Rebecca Tia kelia teen exalts your Lord and be amongst those who prostrate for him subhanaw taala
and continue to serve them until until clarity comes to you. You have to wait until that moment of certainty whether that word is referring to death, or that whether that word is referring to prevalence and success we don't know really because it says you have teeny teeny uncertainty, whatever that means. I don't know. And I don't think he was sure about it either on his thoughts and he was never told in Mecca that he was going to make it and this is a really important piece for you to kind of remember throughout this whole story because you and I don't know how the story works you know you and I know what's going to happen next to a certain degree we know how it's gonna pay out
Yeah, he'll he'll do the occasional he'll get fair he'll win a few but it'll work out. He didn't know that I use a lot to Sam during this he wasn't being told in the Quran. It'd be fine just stick to it. He didn't know that. He was not given that actually the Quran would tell him something that would put him in a position where it was been nebeker in hormone therapy Moon oh no to get the annuity and Nicola de What I didn't know when I let him Nakata de Rouen, either you will die and then we will take we will see we will eventually
We are we will show you what we promised in terms of success and victory. So you've been told we could go this way or that way. It was later in Medina that he was told Allahu wa Similkameen ins in the last year of his life on the heels to Allah to Islam after he was already, but before that, no, he was just he wasn't sure how this was going to turn out. So Allah on your side, besides very important, very important piece.
So they went after actually, let me talk about this first name. So
they're gonna go after me talking about the different ways you can go after him. So they went after his character, they talk called him names, they would walk behind him, denying him people who did speak to people. But when that didn't work, when it didn't really change at all, the amount of effort he was putting in, he went after his family. They went after his family. So they went after Khadija lovely Hola, Juan, allows, meanwhile, came up with this really clever way to kind of calm him out of here. So that was that I met through his wife. So you're saying, Whoa, whoa, nyesha let them speak, let him say whatever he wants, for no law.
And yet there is no one to carry anything after him. But no of them. Without it is a word that Allah would use to refer to someone who, whose lineage died with them, meaning no one would continue their legacy. Right? Because back then, the only way a person's legacy would continue if they had like a lot of meal children. That's just not understanding. They're providing a slot to us and did not call a sim and Abdullah both died young. And he had four daughters on it yesterday, it was Sudan. So allow us who had as its as no 25 sons amongst them. And then also whom we know is what he said. He said he wanted to kind of give a little bit of job. So he said, Yeah, why are you wasting your time,
let him say whatever he wants, let him speak and let him preach and let him no one will continue what he had to say after army and Khadija would, would hurt her degenerate Alana couldn't, at that point, wasn't able to have children anymore. And she wanted to give him a son and she wasn't able to give him a son. I don't want her because it hurt her. It hurt him it has a lot to them. And this was happening. So the Quran came and actually dealt with this one.
The Quran came and said, This is one of the one of the most beautiful sutras in the Quran. So if you read it every day, you probably don't you probably recite like half a book on every Salah so you don't read it. But I encourage you please read this one more often in
your Salah, just make sure you stand exactly what it is that is teaching so that you can actually benefit from the from the meaning that it carries. It's an extremely, extremely linguistically beautiful surah I, it's hard I've been trying to figure it out for the last few years, how I'm going to explain it linguistically to you in English. And I have failed so far, because it's just wait, this the terminology is just extremely difficult for me to to make data across. But it's from in the mortgages and locally, meaning linguistically in Arabic, it is it's extremely impressive. The usage of the words that because if you look at it's very short, now the first
is three words, then then three or four words, then then four words after that. So one of the shortest stores in the client, not the shortest during the client terms or the number of words that exists within it. And it begins by telling the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, there's three things, here's three things for you. And it's very helpful. This is what I tells you how to deal with people who are mocking you, if you are being made fun of or put down or spoke of in a derogatory manner, right. So to close the race for you, it'll tell you exactly what to do. Number one in our in our telcos are indeed We have given you a coastal coastal is a is a is a linguistic derivative. That is
fun, and is taken from cough, rock, which is cattle, right. And that's where we take the word cathedra, which has a lot to coastal is a derivative that says this is the most and the best of something. I say this the best. The word itself has the cathedrals a lot to go unfilled. And its meaning linguistically aside from it being the basin, or the river, the profit out of yourself and has an agenda which is totally fine to understand it that way. But just the linguistic meaning of this word means we are going to give you we have given you the most and the best in the best of everything in abundance is what you're going to get. So don't worry about what they have to say
about you. It doesn't matter what they say, doesn't affect what it is that we have hidden and waiting for, you know, we haven't in hiding for you or what's waiting on the other side is cofell is the most and the best of everything. So don't worry. That's the first thing you need to know is when you're being monitored, just disrespected. It doesn't that doesn't affect me. If people are looking down at you, that doesn't affect how Allah sees you. It doesn't affect how he sees you subpoena what data because that's it's not the same thing. People can look at you however they want, they can see see you think little of you think a lot of you think doesn't matter what they think of you because
Allah subhanaw taala thinks of you independently from their remarks so they can put you down but Allah subhanaw taala will see you in a higher and higher regards. So the first piece was you know what's waiting for you know, don't don't don't let their words hurt you know that their words hurt you and now if they're not going to go with them. Second thing what do you do you remember your mind you
yourself that Allah subhanaw taala has any in store for you beautiful thing so you don't have to don't don't don't allow their words to take that away from number two person Lilia Rob Baker one.
So, the translation here is very important to understand because this is a really good example of where you can completely misquote something. Solid Arabic meaning so continue to pray and make dua Salah is also communicate with your Lord, one out and 100 Slaughter the person who mocked you No, no, of course not. One how as in Hadith, as in as in here. So, the Prophet alayhi salam would do this a lot. He was someone who had whenever he was able, or wherever he obtained livestock, he would slaughter and he would feed people. So what he's being told here on a Salatu Salam is continuing to do what you do, what do you do? You do two things for Salah your optic you have a strong connection
with the Lord keep it one How can you take care of people you feed them continue to do that as well. There was never stop you.
They're worried what they say about you what they do to you should never stop the goodness within you. If you're a good person, then you're a good person. If people say good things about you, you're a good person and they say bad things about you you're a good person if people can with certain words change you from being a good person to something different. And there's little bit of a problem there. If we're if people opinion of you if they can say things about you mock you put you down put you in a position and change who you are, you're not the same person anymore. That's a big problem. Because that means whatever it is you were it wasn't genuine it was conditional and
conditional goodness is not is not there's nothing impressive about that that's almost meaningless. Well, certainly Rob Baker will continue to be the person who you are that you need to connect with your Lord continue to feed the people who are hungry in a shiny aka indeed shiny a shine it is the person who has put themselves in opposition of someone else. Shiny, aka the person who is in opposition to you. Who will arbiter he is the one who will be of no one to carry his legacy.
Is he in four or five weeks from now? You will still know whom Mohammed bin Abdullah Salah Salem was where I can I can attest that if I asked you who this who this surah was talking about on the other side, you probably wouldn't know.
Yeah, 25 sons.
Yet, he had no legacy. Mohammed Salah is sitting had no sons, and everyone in this room guy there just to hear his story, Allah salatu salam, and the only person that allows us to know who the who that guy is, is his son, Allah. I don't want to get us. And the only reason that awesome and wide is known today is through His Son, who carried the legacy of Mohammed Salah Horus. I mean, that's the only way he's known. The only reason he's known is because whatever his children decided the rest of them that 25 I don't know any of their names. I just know I'm a and the reason I know I'm older and I'm able to say I know who is that who this guy is who just died. It's because I've decided at one
point to join Muhammad Ali Hisako. Seven follow him. So who is it who's going to lose all all legacy? Who was the one who I was lucky, I didn't want to continue it. Who was cut off in terms of in terms of his lineage was it was the amount of workplace that was also the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
What goes around comes around.
First of all, no people mark you know that Allah subhanaw taala thinks very highly of you. And Allah will be waiting for you to continue to be the same person you've always been and a good person, continue that don't let don't let that stop you. Number three, or goes around comes around, don't worry. any negativity that you project into this world is it's a boomerang, it takes a little bit of time, we'll go 365 and come right back to the person who did it in the first place. Don't worry about it's almost it's very poetic. It's beautiful. Actually, you just sit back someone harm you just sit back and wait. Don't waste your time carrying grudges and tribal life. It'll just it'll
come back. unless they repent and change their ways what they produce, what you put into this world will come back you. You put out goodness, that's what you'll get to you put out harm. That's what you'll get. It takes a bit of time, but it happens. oversharing happens. People ask you over 70 and they'll tell you, because they lived life. They've watched it happen. Sometimes in small snapshots. It's hard to see. Right within two to three years. You don't see it. But then when you look at the timeline, and when you love the timeline to expand a little bit, it's very obvious. It's very simple. If you project harm and hate and negativity just comes back comes back. It catches up with
you. catches up with you easily. So he told him I used to monitor the guy who talked about you. It's funny, I didn't name him. If you named him then he would forever be known. But the last time I didn't name him
he could have said enough wooden will after but then his name will be forever known and that actually be contradicting itself. There's a shiny aka the person who decided to oppose you on this. He's the one who's going to be forgotten. He is the Avatar who has no he is one has no one to
continue for him and he was forgotten.
The only memory we have of him is because of because of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam himself. His name lives on because of him and he does a lot of
that's what you do when you're when you're harmed, and
harming his family would go one step further
would have had how many strikes so far?
Right? It's been three strikes, stood up in the middle of his home and he
wrote to him it was Strike two when he was standing on the mound of Safa, strike three he would walk behind him and say he's, he's insane. He's a liar. Don't go speak to him.
so here's the piece I didn't tell you about him until you about now. Remember, I told you I would have had every reason to accept Islam. Because he was so close to the Prophet it sounds uncle they knew each other well, he knew he was honest, they lived close by beyond that. What I have two sons are Tibetan on the table. Were engaged to the Prophet Allah you saw two sons, two daughters, Rocha young costume, engaged to be married, or engaged to be married. And as this was happening, they were still engaged to be married. And the bravado you have some didn't call it off. He didn't say anything. He left it as it is, but I'm gonna happen out of spite. We'll go to the Prophet to his
sons and he was sitting where g men will jump in with a coma haram maybe I will never look at your faces again to Politico I've been to Mohammed Salah is mishmi, your divorce both his daughters today. So they did.
So they divorced his daughters.
Now anyone who has two daughters knows that this is a big deal, especially for a mother. I always thought about Khadija for this piece. Even more than I thought about him money history.
Fathers tend to be a little bit more
common these things mothers suffer with this a bit more.
Khadija has two daughters now, we're divorced because of this, that when we start how easy would have been fair to say this is what I get from your days up in the mountain. Now. Now both our daughters have no have no now they're divorced. And some people say this is I just want to draw the line now how about the debates when now you've ruined their their future? Now, she's not a word. And the thing is that it didn't get fixed. Here's the point that I need you to really understand. It didn't get fixed. Sometimes people say they'll tell you that if you leave, if something happens to you for the suffix immediately for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala of harm, then you'll be
immediately compensated. No, that's actually not true. You may not be compensated in dunya at all, you may be compensated yomo theum. Actually, that's what you should be looking for. You shouldn't be believe, hooked up on Dunia compensation. It didn't work out like Broca didn't make get married until two three years later. Taurus man omocha still didn't get married until her sister died and she married her previous husband. So it's not like they divorced them. And then immediately two grooms came and knocked on the door and married them. No, they stayed with those alleged for a while. For a while. So it wasn't it was actually harmful. It was harmful to the profile of him and
to his daughters. And to Khadija to the Allahu Allah Allah.
Under the belt move as an under the belt, and it would have never held bad you don't go to do that, that that's uncalled for. It's uncalled for. He didn't say a word to me. They divorced him no problem. And no see, but the Nazis didn't come immediately afterwards. They weren't compensated and dunya right away. No. They weren't compensated and they don't have a duty. Yeah, we talk about Rocha Yama, costumer their children, you know the children of Fatima Zahra le Allah on Alia said I'm you know, I said what her saying? We know Zayn Abdullah Anna DOMA, whereas they didn't. They got married late and they didn't bear children. This is for me an ongoing example. If you truly, truly believe
in Allah subhanaw and accept what this deen is, then be a little bit more mature about what trials are in life. Not every time you go with something difficult. And you persevere, you're going to say I expect my reward like immediately. If you do that, I'm just sad to say you're sorry to say you're gonna be really disappointed. Things don't work that way. They don't. If they were if they did, they would have worked out for him and he saw to Islam that way. They didn't. That's okay. It's alright to call your own workers and then be taken care of. There's no There's no doubt about that. In dunya didn't didn't work out immediately for them but you should be okay with that. We have to be it's
hard to accept Well, it is. It's very hard to accept but that's that's the reality of this. It's very important that we Jehan one day the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was performing Dawa to him.
And he would say yeah, Mohammed Malika to kilimani kula yum. Why are you speaking to me every day? Well, Allah He and Nico Sadiq Khan let the magic if I knew that you were telling the truth about all this, I would have followed you. When I couldn't make a verb but you're a liar. You'd walk away from her money.
What was providing your soul to sell go
then you would you had after doing that and are being extremely rude sprigs very rude even in any any in Arabian culture the call someone a liar to their face is a big deal and they imply that there may be exaggerating or lying which we do a lot of by the way but implying it is actually a big deal. It can cause like real rifts and within communities. But what you had to say that to the Prophet Allah, your status on his face was extremely, extremely disrespectful regardless of whether there was anything he doesn't provide as AutoSum no problem he walked away, didn't didn't escalate this or just walked away.
Go and sit by Sephora and omega,
you would come clean.
Sometimes when you when you start when people do carry falsehood, you carry falsehood long enough. It just
boils, it boils on the inside. It ruins you, you have to get it out. You have to say it's hard, it's hard. If you know the truth, you know what is right at some point it just it just finds it seeps through it seeps through the cracks. Now Bucha had After saying that, after saying that, to him, it is solid knowingly, knowingly that that was not the case. He just had that moment he was saying was supply supply he said so far. I know I need Island one. No Sadhak I swear I know. I know that he is truthful. So one Jonnie imagining him drinking water and he chokes like, What? What? You know what you're talking about? You're the one who has been telling everyone that he's he's a threat to our
nation. He's a threat to our traditions, a threat to our identity. He's a threat to our customs. He's a threat to our land. He is He works with humans as well. You're fishing for the last couple of years. Everyone doesn't believe that. No one's following Him because of what you're saying. And yeah, I know he's
supposed to quit.
And Abuja continues.
Cornell Alberni Hashem. That's what I say Rehan see my family. He's from Burma zoom.
Remember, I showed you like a little bit of the lineage breakdown at the beginning of this. I should have probably added it here but I forgot. But I'm assume we're never in alliance with Buddle Hashem always had all these alliances like families that grouped up to protect one another. But I'm gonna presume Bucha had we had come up in Hashem is a tribe will never not at all different alliances, they were completely separated.
But Ohio shim had a lot of status, no money, a lot of status. They were very, you're a proud family. The profit it is also is also his family was a proud family, a family that I'm going to call it was a part of them, he revives ZamZam, they took care of the company took care of the hodgepodge. A lot of names of people who are respected were noble warriors, and Maroma zoom had something similar, and they were always
competing. So good now have any Hashim Kafala say anyone who would like to racing horses, the houses that people bet on, you know, I'm not sure if there's a word for that. But the two racing horses that people that's how we were Jaco known I mean NACADA when apollomon NACADA they say we have this amongst us we have this poet or this warrior or this nobleman.
When apollomon NACADA we say well, we have any this
politician or this leader or this or this, we are a great person.
Call you Mina anNabi, and then they said, we have a prophet
and Elena de Javi where am I gonna get a profit from? I
don't have a prophet dinero you didn't think of it? He just started out it was said at first I didn't think of it allowed me to be here but
I'll never I'll never I'll never ever done by him. I'll never follow him ever had nothing to do had nothing to do with the with the content, had nothing to do with the message had to do with something that was completely outside of all of it. Abuja who just could not stand the idea of him following some person from Bani Hashem, their arch enemies, the people whom they always were trying to outplay
people that they were trying to prove they were better than they were superior to that they had more reason to have higher status that they were more respected than now I'm gonna go I'm gonna follow some person from that tribe now not doing it
yet you can come to a point of of jealousy or arrogance that can send you down that track
it's very easy if you if you start if you read read at some point the story of a bliss it's not that hard to understand it. This bliss is problem. A breeze was bad every reason to use up there with the melodica none of you have gone I don't have any of you been invited to join the melodica and Jana that's how great you are that Allah No no, no you don't deserve to be on Earth with these people come up here. No, at least we still come up with them. Anika and forget about the kickoff here. Come spend with them. You're not one of them, but come spend with them. That's how good you are
As his status he was told, show respect to Adam. I love Adam. Allah Subhan. Allah, Allah Madama created him. He's different. I love him show respect him. No, I can't get to it. Get into it. Why? Why do I still respect him? What did he do? What did he do? So far? He has done nothing. I've been I've been worshipping you for years, he has done nothing. Why do I? I'm fired. Look at him. He's mud.
You see the Earth? It stinks. Man, this man water? Why do I have to show respect to him? He couldn't, couldn't, couldn't get over it. He could not get over it. He couldn't do it. He got solar again and so full of himself, he couldn't do it. If you think you're better than you fell into the same problem that he had in the first place,
then you just fall it fell into the same trap? If you think in your mind that no, I would have done that. Then you just you just thought you're stuck yourself that you're better than him, which is his problem to begin with? He thought he was better than Adam, because that same problem is a conundrum. The thing that no, I would have done that. Really? You know that for sure. You are certain they would have done that? How do you know that? Who told you that? They will tell you? No, you're different. I would have done that. Then you're just being arrogant. Just like here's
the problem. Just thinking that we're better. He couldn't help it. He became so arrogant that he could not bring himself to do it. He was given a couple of examples here. Here's the way out and I'll tell him my um, at least my like, I let her call them I said he didn't know. And then he challenged give me a chance I'll prove that he's not worth anything.
Give me a chance. Just tell me you know, homeobox don't just don't take my life until the day of judgment. And I will prove to you that they are not worth there's trust and love you have shown them
like a heart and Eli yo Milka Yama, the attorney can will reata who Illa kalila I will put you know, you know what they put on the horse the mouthpiece turning this I don't know what's called me it was when you can move the range of law then he can I mean, I put reins on them. I'll put reins on them for you just give me time. I'll put reins on their faces and I'll tell them go right we'll go right. They won't obey you to obey me. Challenged Allah. He couldn't even though he knows a lot more than you and I will ever will. Because he was there. I can't imagine that there's any comparisons. My understanding of God and His
arrogance and jealousy can ruin a person and be their demise. That's exactly what happened here.
Exactly what happened, though Bucha had his he could not help it.
He came clean tables of software and sitting there with his mouth. His jaw dropped, listening to this.
But he couldn't go around telling people because there was no witnesses. So he just stuck with it. Until he told the story after he accepted Islam after
he told the story address Islam. Okay, that is what happened one day, he just he just came clean and said this. And I couldn't believe it. I know what to do with this piece of information. I didn't say anything upon Allah. Then Allah ma
Kadena Allah in now who will zuka the Buddha we know we know a lot about this. I know we know that what they're saying bothers you and it's hurtful and it's disrespectful. It's uncalled uncalled for in the home life because they don't and they don't. They don't disbelieve in what you're saying. They don't actually believe and think that you're alive. They don't. Well, I can have volley me and Tila here. Jehan, but your oppressors. They choose consciously to ignore the signs of their lords. They just don't want to. They want to don't want to accept what they know is the truth.
And that's what Bucha Hill did.
These foundational stories, I put them here every once in a while just to kind of remind people but what it is has been revealed, what's been revealed so far, and what lessons the Sahaba have been taught. And amongst the students that Yanni were revealed, assorted Nom, nom is a long sutra. It's like 25 pages or so if you have evidence that it was revealed all at once the evidence is lacks authenticity. It lacks a little bit of authenticity. We have nothing to rebuttal, it.
But we know for sure that it wasn't revealed all at once it was revealed in a very short period of time as a long source is very rare. So making sure early early ones, it talks about Eman thought talks about an amen to say the word faith or belief as an equivalent to Eman is a really poor choice of words. It's not it's not a good it's not a good one. Eman is to enter into it internalize, internalize theology. theology as in what it who Allah subhanaw taala is, and what our role here is that a theology is understanding understanding the universe through the lens of a supreme power of God. So that theology, that understanding of the world of who Allah is and what my role in this
world is in terms of internalizing that meaning going from just this thought that I claim to accept or acknowledge or adhere to, to something that is a part of my subconsciousness that will drive behavior. That's what that's what email and actually is very powerful to Barry
Very powerful aspect of our deen. So it sort of talks about it in depth. It's a 25 page that sort of goes through this. It breaks it down to two things. dualities, it's understanding and then practicing is saying, I understand that you are who you are. And since you gave me this command that I will immediately obey move forward, because Amen. You can't say that it's there, if you don't actually follow the teachings is saying, I know I say, like, let the I understand you say it. But it doesn't mean it's not Eman until you're able to turn it into actual behavior. That's why clarity now Rob, and I will talk about this. Maybe in a couple of months or a year, the Bedouins came and said,
Amen. They accepted Islam like the same day. But LEM told me to say no, no, you're not that. You don't have email yet. We're not gonna talk to our slimness say we accepted Islam. We entered the deen. That's where you are. What am I? What am I mean, not yet. An email will feel Kulu become.
Email has not entered truly into your heart yet. It will. But it's not there yet. It takes him at a time. And that's what sorts of anon talks it talks about in some sort of that was revealed early on, and it's totally worth your time
to recite and try to memorize and understand and learn.
They will start moving from from his character assassination that they were doing to him on his slot to someone going after his family just going after him physically out of his slot to go after him physically. He will be walking out of his house and I use AutoSum with his daughters, and they would have they would hire or they would give Danny a couple of young people some money to stand out on the streets with
handfuls of sand. And the moment he walked on the street, they just thought they would come and throw it into his face and then run away
and of course it's been hours eyes and so he stands out he saw the stone he's wiping off any the sand from his behavior. And his daughter one of his daughters is doing the same. Thunderation says it was enough Some say it was felt lame. I don't know. It's unclear but they're doing it and their daughter is crying as she wipes the sand off her father's face. Poor rubra Yara dedicato Don't cry in Allah now certain about the Allah Allah, Allah Allah will grant you your father. Success. It's just Just be patient is be patient.
Bucha how would we do that would do the same thing? But I wish I had never worked out for him. He always got are we? What time is it good for another one more story? Are we running? Okay, well, I'll tell them. I'm not gonna tell the story of October maybe more. Because if I do,
they're going to run until after I share and that's gonna so we'll do this next time. We'll general he always he tried to do things in it all he always failed. The pilot was just the his image was he decided one day he saw the profit out of the slot wasn't making sujood and the people were coming physical with them. They were becoming physical with a profit at least a lot to ascend. They were going in and they were actually causing physical harm hitting and pushing and throwing things and it was going from was going from calling names and maybe having discussions to now actually stooping to a lower level. When you start becoming physical with someone who is trying to explain something or
trying to practice something. It shows that you're actually you have nothing to do with would do this and one of the situate one of the examples what happened was is the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam saw was making sushi in front of the Kaaba. So Buddha would say to people well I haven't put up our Anna raka better Mohammed and be rigidly I'm gonna go on a step on his neck as he's praying some Allah hottie cyber Germaine
Alia saw to a sinner. So would you would make this claim and go run as he's making Sassoon and I put my stamp on his neck with my foot. Baba Bucha he walked in there watching him but velocidad to Robert and maybe it was and he walked up he came right close to where the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam isn't he phrase you froze for a few minutes and they turned back and came back again? Called the masala What did you do? But um all right. Now how would you just see what happened? Chordoma? What happened? You just you stood there and you didn't like he was making so God didn't touch him? So far? 101 menar by any obey No, Allah, he wanted to regenerate after rocket. There was this this
trench of fire when I came close by he didn't see it. There was right there. If I put my foot it was burned. It didn't didn't clear off. I couldn't come up to you. You've lost your mind or you're on something. I don't know what you're on. You're on something go go go home and sleep.
One day the Pragati Salatu was Salam was in sitting in front of the Kaaba teaching. And a Bedouin man would come by and he would sit he would start asking Can someone get me my my debt from a will heckum I will have him with me John. If someone gets me my debt because he was a bedroom and we come to the city they usually bring with them eggs and milk and whatnot himself and it would take it and not pay the guy. I'll pay you later or whatever give them half is that he came one day asking for the rest of his money for anything. I wish I had told him go I don't owe you anything going. So this poor man is walking around say i He always mean the girl was me for this mountain. He won't give it
to me. So the people sitting the cuff
A couple clicks on all these courageous leaders operation. They want to have some fun so they will celebrate and tell him go go we know his best friend his best friend is sitting right over there talk to him you'll get you what you want from him. You're there pointing at the property. Is this as a joke and he goes off to him he's his best friend he will go and get you your your money. So this poor man comes to the Prophet alayhi salatu was Ramsay pleading to him Hey, please help me you know sometimes please help me on the alleys he goes hey ally bodyguards say all these nice things to him and if you just get me out he's your friend and he who's my friend and what are you talking about?
He's they told me that you can get me in my truck from Abuja will become the profiler useless and looked over. He knew that they were laughing
because of course there's no there's no good relationship between him and Abuja had
you know, they were just doing it as a joke. So he said yes, come with me. So he's the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would take him and we go right over to the to this man's house. That would Yeah, his house would knock on the door. Abuja Hill would open the door by a cool Hula, hula Manhattan. Le Haida Andika Huck does this person you owe this person something?
Of course. So
yes, exactly. He they have to go inside and bring him his money. The people who sent this man were standing watching because they wanted to see what's going to happen
to have some fun. So John walks into the house he comes back with a bag a small bag of money. The profit is awesome. Take it took it and he gave it to this man Bacala oboe, can you have puzzle caches? Or is it made? Is anything missing? Is it every is it all there? The man looks at it because he couldn't do this is everything Usako
ballets saw some sense the man on his way and he goes
so the people were doing this as a joke would come up to the judge and say, Well
What are you doing? What Why did you give him a call Mr. Ito? You didn't see that? Column? Narada
job knock but your cowardice he saw that. What else are you talking about? The Tada cyclone? Well, Emily young for who now are in ministry. Hola. Hola. Hola.
Hola, Kellen. You see this the camo that was breathing fire behind Accardo Are you a billion where you have phenom Go Go sleep what do you what are you talking about? There's no there's no camera? There's nothing you just said Allah what it's like there's rain. Now I don't know if the valley is new, any of this stuff? I don't think he did. I honestly didn't think I don't think that the Prophet alayhi salam knew that he just always did the right thing. It's hard to do the right thing all the time, it's almost impossible. It's very difficult. It's a very difficult thing. It's a task that we take for granted that we under it's underrated we talked about as if it's simple, it's very hard to
do the right thing all the time, the provider you saw at the restaurant, and at that moment could have told them and look, brother, I they're there. It's a joke. They're just making fun of their marketing. And they're mocking me, because he's not my friend, and I'm gonna go, he's gonna, he's gonna, he's going to basically kick both of us out of his home, it's not going to work out. But the bravado you saw through some chose to take on the task was more difficult. Anyways, he didn't know his will go to work out or not, but he went anyways, because it was the right thing to do. Because if you don't stand by the vulnerable, if you don't stand by the weak, if you don't go and help
someone who is only has the has the lower hand, then you're not whatever you're doing is not that worthy. And this is not this is not just about his character, it is thought to some it's also about how we function not just as individuals, but as communities as well. And the community is only as good as the services and the protection, they show their vulnerable counterparts. If a community has not taken care of the week of the poor of the elderly, and the sick of the struggling, then this community will not see will not see success. If the community only looks out for those who are privileged already, oh, look out for their small groups. They're little silos, there are bubbles,
then this community, any community will not go anywhere. Communities value is based on the services and the care, they show that we can vulnerable amongst them. The ones who can't vouch for themselves or fight for themselves are the ones who are it's easy for them to not have a voice over people to forget about them altogether, and they and they end up with nothing. That's what Islam is about. Islam is made about making sure that the wife that the day that the week is going to be is going to be strong. If he has a hug, that the one who has no back, the one who has no lineage has no tribe has no family to support them will be supported if they if they're owed something. And that's what
we learn from him. Allah salatu salam, he always did this. Yaki always stood behind the weak always did. He didn't have to and destroy they did anyways. I don't know if he had any idea where he just went any and he said what he needed to say. Understanding the rest of this may go horribly wrong. But it if I don't stand by him, then who will? What is the worst of my Deen if this person who is most alone oppressed asking for help, and I say I'm sorry, go? What's the what's the point? What's the worst of it all? I just love that story. I think it's worth sharing with you. I think we're good to go. Okay, we'll stop it. That's Franklin Huntington.
Who will do we also have Allahu wa Salam wa barakaatuh Amina Mohammed. So I shall have a Kahoot and so I can start right after that.
