to actually listen to and benefit from. The second thing is that he is on a salatu salam, our our example a role model for sure.
And when I, when I say that, I'm pointing out the fact that the Prophet alayhi salaatu, WA salaam lived a very full life. So if I had to say, so are you Masato savage made all the prophets like a Saudi Saddam and like, and like Musa and like USofA next to a man, all of them are role models and all of them are people whom we look up to and we try to emulate, but there's a lot of differences between us and them. So it's, it's not easy, you can only take a specific aspect of their life and follow them through. So he started he said, I never never built wealth and never build power. He was extremely young he practiced practiced asceticism, he had a lot of Szilard in his life, so you can
you can follow him when it comes to that, but you can't, when you're if you're someone who has wealth and power, then you don't have an example in eSATA. Here's some specifically directly you can indirectly and logically take a lot but I'm saying directly, it's hard because he never you didn't see him in that position. You get a man and he said I was the opposite. He was a king all his life, a prince as a child, and a king as a as an older person. He never lived a life where he had very little right, how did he sit on and then the same thing more you look at different prophets, you find that there are things of course, you can learn from the mighty humans salatu salam, but the
look at his life, it has a lot to lose to them, no, you will see Him, you will see him persecuted, and you will see him prevail, you will see him financially poor, you will see him financially well off, you will see him as a father and as a husband. And as
I as a friend, you'll see him in every in every position that you need to see him in to learn from him out of his solitude. So not all the prophets have that. Now the problem is you can't see all the prophets and that because they didn't all have that experience in their lives. Which is why learning a story out of your soul to Islam is so valuable, because you've got to see him in every situation, all circumstances. So regardless of what you're going through,
regardless of what your life story is, like, there is something in his life story out of yourself and for you to learn from and benefit from.
And the third reason is that you're taught it, I think it's worth learning about the most interesting and impressive and beautiful character within the history of humanity. I think it's worth your time to learn about him out of here. Salatu Salam, no one comes even remotely close to him. Either you're salatu salam in any form or matter, no matter how much you try. And the harder you try to be like him, the more you figured out as he walked down that path, how far away you actually are from him. And it's only when you fully fully understand who he is, and you try to be like him that you start seeing. I'm not even this in the same. We're not even the same galaxy. He
and I he's waiting in a completely different place. And learning about him it is suggested I think is from that perspective is also really important. You see most most famous people, they have, they have, you know PRP, they hire somebody for PR, and the meaning for their for their image and how they look. And the advice is always don't don't expose yourself too much is what they're told. Don't spend too much time with people though, because then they'll get to know you and once they get to know you though, you know, they'll figure out all your flaws and then they'll stop loving you or you know, I you know idolizing you and that's that's the advice for almost everyone who's in the public
eye. Or you start to sit and the more you know him the more you loved him as you get behind who would would describe the murderer who by de Hudson herb, wherever saw him for the first time revered him while men high Lapa whom I refer to as a hub. And those who spent time with him got to know him. They loved him. They fell in love with him. I think if you look at it all these people lived by lived with him. His family members he had multiple wives out of your salatu salam he had enemies no one no one there's no nothing there's nothing on the record and his water records there's nothing on the record of any of them bad mouthing him Alia salatu salam at any point at any point during his
entire life that's impossible.
Even if it's being rigged, even if it's even if it is even if someone's rigging this or someone's like it's impossible for someone to go not find one person say something negative about nothing. They couldn't find anything they couldn't there's nothing you can find anything out of your slot to them you don't like him? Okay, you maybe don't like him but they couldn't say anything about him. They couldn't they couldn't criticize his ethics or his morals or the way he was they couldn't find anything so Allah on his like you said this is the type of character that we're talking about is worth learning about. So let's figure out how is that even possible? And when you study a little bit
more you figure it out it's barely possible so actually probably only possible for what for that for this context and then we can only we can only dream thing or we can try but it's going to be something beyond our our ability, Allah Tala for this way is way ahead. Now even we're not even close. Yeah, okay. So that's why the seal of the Prophet Allah
pointing out a few more I talked a little bit every time for the last maybe a few sessions. I talked a little bit about what it was like before he was born. It was the gentlelady yields like I gave you certain examples.
I want to give you a few examples today as well.
Another aspect of the job really you're taking the time to pre Islamic time and how people behaved
was the concept of I don't wanna say racism or bigotry or bigotry, but it's more.
It's what we call today was called tau sub, or kabylia. Where you are loyal to your tribe or to your race or your group, in a way where nothing else matters and you care for no one else. And you find this all throughout JD poetry, aside from just the the behaviors that proved it was also it's also documented. During the summer I had a really cool piece of poetry where he says, Mama Anna in the Rosie Yetta, in Norwich are way too interested Virginia to our foodie, he says is that all I am is I'm just I'm just a part of my tribe. If my tribe does well than I do well in my tribe doesn't do well, then I don't, I don't, whatever, whatever my tribe does, I do.
And another another piece of budget. But when I did the ALA back in Athena in Nigeria in Bactria, but run a Haida and we have if I know what else terrain we raid our brother, like whoever is the closest, there's no one else to raid them, we just we just do that. And this was this was just a lot. In many ways. That was the mentality of the time. They didn't have Allah outside of Christ, Christ. The reason operation was was the leader of the of the peninsula is because it's had a law it had held they held down to hold on to a certain degree to the laws of Ibrahim Ali used to hold on to some of those laws. So they were they were civilized, they hide away by for going by life and how to
how to make sure that everyone has rights and has obligations and how to actually punish those who make mistakes and reward those who and vote in people who are be elders and make decisions. Most of them didn't have that they were just tribes the tribes try by the sheer chef Kabila, the the leader of the compete, he this guy did everything he made all the decision no one, no one, no one oppose this person, whatever they wanted, and the way they made living if they didn't have a strong if they didn't have a strong trade, then they would just use rating just raid wherever it's closest. Another rate, though, rate you soon later, but that's how this works. And that's how they go through the
lives and and this obviously caused a lot of chaos.
Another really important point is regarding to the sooner I read in Maghrib, when you talk about so it's Qureshi and talks about her that she thought was safe, standing a little bit of the economical system that that governed
the financial part of people's lives in the peninsula.
Quraysh specifically was wealthy, Mecca was the center of the of the peninsula, it was a center, not just financially, he was a center also religiously, and it was a center politically. So a lot happened there. And a lot of decisions were made there. And most of Arabia offered their loyalty to polish, not enough, not enough for them to be able to rule the land, but enough to keep everyone satisfied and quiet and allow for Christ to continue to grow their wealth and grow their you know,
their strength and their reach. And the way this happened and this is why it's important because this is gonna be a big part of the story that we're going to tell of his life ideas. So it was it was through a snub is he didn't necessarily think of snom were a real thing. Like it wasn't necessarily the the issue that everyone believed that Iraq was it was something worthy of worship, and if he worshiped it was going to do something for you. If you asked a mushrik back then when it inside the home when he talks about this three or four times in different parts of the inside of the home, man holla personality will Omen holla calm you asked him who created this cosmos and Beard who
created you lay upon Allah, they'll say Allah, they'll say Allah then so what about Jesus now? And they'll say, well, they just like your deputies or something their partners, they can do certain thing. They didn't necessarily fully even believe that. Like most of them didn't even believe that was the case. But the reason that this was so prominent was financial. And it's funny, it really made me it's not funny, it's ironic, or it's just a cynical almost, you follow down to the you look for you see corruption, you go down the rabbit hole far enough, it's money, every single time, every time never go wrong. It's always money at the end of it's always funny. Every time no matter what
type of corruption you're talking about, no matter what type of of Jonnie of persecution or or greed whatever it is that you're seeing that's going on that you think is wrong if you go down for it was money. Money is at the at the core of all of this is just that financial greed that we have is just and it's always from people who don't need it. Because the greed that ends up causing all of this is always for people who don't need the wealth that they have more than they'll ever need or and their children and the grandchildren. And it's just it's just very, and they'll snom were just it was just money is the Quraysh figured out a way to secure their caravans, their business
based caravan see price, in order predicting money, they need to have business trips to the north, right where Damascus is today because that was where the Roman Empire had hola that's it was the middle of the old world or the
unknown Old World. And then they had caravans down into Yemen. And because Yemen is close to the Horn of Africa and a lot of trade happens there so in order for us to continue making wealth they need to have those care business trips to both the North and the South. They had to shut out was safe going during the winter months in the in the summer months to make their wealth. And the problem was with doing that is that it's so easy to read a caravan on the way there or the way back, it's just so easy to do it. If you're a tribe and you're living somewhere on the on the party, just wait. And when they come back, all big and juicy, they are all the camels are filled with with
merchandise you read, if you don't take everything it take a couple of camels with enough and by the time they've caravan makes it to Mecca, there's nothing left on it, like you ended up in in a deficit. So America need to find a way to fix this. And I'm Robin hay brought to slam slam started picking up a little bit of popularity amongst the ignorant people of Arabia. And some of them said, Well, you know, let's let's capitalize on this ignorance.
And what they ended up doing is they ended up taking these Islam from the different tribes and putting them around the Kaaba. If you offered what is your loyalty, and if you secured their caravans within the territory that you governed on that path from Mecca to Damascus, from Mecca to Yemen, then you got your son, um, right on top of the Kaaba. So when he was born out of here, Salatu was Salam, there were over 360 titles that surrounded the Kaaba on it. And in front of it. When he did a lot of the stories I tell you during the time of all, honestly, just until the hammock, which is going to be very, very
rainy and remotely close to getting tickets Amaka. That's almost towards the end of his life idea. So everything before that every time you hear he prayed for the cabin, or he did blow up or you didn't remember, there was a snub there, I'm gonna tell him you don't even know what idols or something is. It's a distant memory. It's something that we just talked about. Most people don't don't understand, because you don't know what it is. But it was all there. It was always there. And it wasn't about the value of the sum. It was the it was status. These tribes wanted to be able to, they want the bragging rights. They wanted the bragging rights that are Sonam. He's on the Kaaba in
front of the car, but they get to go polish it during the time of Hajj and brag, and how are we gonna make that happen? Well, we need to do Quraysh a favor, and they'll put arsenal for us. And if we don't do a favor for them, they knock it down. So it became a religious became courage became the religious center, not because of the GABA. But because of this little caveat, they figured out they figured out this little way to do it. And now they secured fully, this whole reality she thought was I was fully secured for them.
And that's why it became so difficult for them to accept or hate. The reason that McCarthyism, when it was offered to them, they didn't pick it up immediately is because they knew it.
And he knew what his thoughts was to them. He argued the theology to them. And they refused based on something different. They were listening to it like Yeah, makes sense. Probably right. But
you do realize, like, if we knock down all these Aufnahme and stuff, this becomes much more difficult, but didn't want to say that because because a common person listening to that response would be like no, what are you talking about? Like a person who's sitting there listening to the product? I think it's awesome argue with Abuja, hell or any automobile Robbia or Walid Ibn movie, or one of these big names, arguing with them the theology of Islam or of Tawheed explain that this is what you this is what makes sense you believe it. And the other person argues back in their argument is not theologically based, and the person lives and say, well, we should do what he's saying.
Because the common person is like, No, I don't want to compromise my ethics for for money.
Most human beings are decent, and they don't want to do that, then I don't want to sell out and say no, no, for our wealth we hold on to the but people in power do. People in power rarely care about ethics. Unfortunately, that's kind of how they got it there to begin with. Not that that's the point of this, this whole series, but but that was the issue. They didn't they couldn't come back and tell him what you're doing is going to ruin he's going to ruin everything that we've built, it's going to take away from us all of our, our strength in our power and our leverage, we don't have any more bargaining chips with these people anymore. So you want to say that because that's gonna make them
look look cheap. So they had to argue to the best of their ability theologically, it could never do a good job because it's hard to argue against menarche ism. Though hate is hard to argue against very simple, it's very clear. It's there's nothing there's nothing complex about it. There's nothing confusing about it. You don't have to explain to people how three become one and one become three and in the number two numbers weren't the same are the same at the same time. Like you don't have to say stuff that people stare at you to grader will stare at you and count and not be able to. It's very simple. It's very straightforward. Everything is in keeping with it. Everything is aligned with
the basic idea
of oneness of everything had fallen, everything is governed by the same law, everything serves a purpose. We all work the same way. Like everything points you towards the concept of the one creator some one way or the other. So it wasn't hard, but there was too much money behind it. There was too much money behind it. So that was the that was the problem. That was the problem and that's never the right answer. But that's really what I'm just getting a little bit of a background because when you got to when you see him it was him start having these conversations are wondering why is it well, this is why he was born into this context it was to them. Well Quraysh had built their status
and just their strategy through through a little bit of a corrupted or liberal corrupt method.
So let's talk about his birth Alia salatu salam before we do let's point out his name his nessa
This is his name so Allah Allah so I'm using them so I want especially my younger I want to remember him Hamid even though Abdullah he even I didn't call him Hypno Hirsch, Hersham, it'd be even cooler. If no more new car didn't even have volume. This is the American The Novel of the canal and Jose Manuel Camelias in Madrid.
You should memorize that you should know that like the back of your hand. That is his nessa out of your salatu salam to Adnan obviously not me I have not is we the father of the Adonai so the Arabs who come from the lineage of Ibrahim Allah yesterday, we don't know the nessa from Adnan to Ibrahim perfectly meaning the historical historians will will argue it but they don't all agree to exactly who is between Adnan and it's not as son of Ibrahim, but we know that for sure that I've noticed from the Nestle is from the lineage of Ibrahim alayhis salam and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam, this is his lane. And it's important at some point in your life, you'll you'll already point
out so when you say the word Cora ich Quraysh. There's actually more than one person that was called Quraysh
was the first one to be called flourish. So if you look up here, there's the first one to be called operations is not working. It's not working anymore. Okay, so the second person to be called Quraysh was foresight. So Mohammed Abdullah had not been looked at even know Hashem had been Abernathy. immunoprecise. So this one, this guy here will say he is glacial hustler. And he is the one who actually united all the tribes and he kicked out from Mecca. For the for better or for worse, I'm not I'm not defending what he did. But he's what he did. He kicked out of Mecca, all the tribes that were not his, like he he kept only the people that that were debating that came from figure. So if
you go up to even club and more about the club if you've never attended, so anyone who didn't come from fear was kicked out of Mecca, Jose did that. And he was called in for an issue and courage comes from accomplish something that it's gathered together, something small, that is brought together, scattered and then brought together so the it's like they were scattered, he brought them all together. And he kept them there and record them personally because he was part he became the leader of Mecca. He gave the
the responsibilities of taking care of the Kaaba and the projects to his to his different children. So I have with me now because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, his great grandfather, and this and his grandfather took on his their job that tribes job was to take care of the judge in terms of referral with supplier meaning to to feed them and to and to give them water. And then the dog had something else and then rabbit jumps or something else so so the different sons all had jobs in terms of what they had to do, and what honored and out of took, they took honor in that if you were given the responsibility to take care of the a judge who came to the house of Allah, they took honor
and taking care of people who came to the to the house of Allah subhanaw taala. I find it mind blowing. I really do that back then injure Helia they would fight over who had the rights to serve the judge. Right? At a time when there was ship, where there was a lack of understanding of basic concepts, they still took, they still found honor and integrity in being the servants of the people who are coming to them to the house of Allah. And today, and today with Islam, we can't find I'm not talking about the halal and the Kaaba, but that's what I'm talking about. When you have a masjid, you have the house of Allah subhanaw taala it's your it's your privilege. You are being chosen by
Allah subhanaw taala with love to be given the opportunity to serve those who come to that house. That's a big deal. If Allah subhanaw taala puts you in a position where you're able to serve people coming to his Mr. His house, that's a sign of love. He has chosen this is a choice because it's not it's not not everyone's offered that privilege that generally the people have Jamelia knew that the people of JD knew that it was a privilege to be able to serve those who come to his house supine and whatnot. And a lot of us don't see that. A lot of us don't feel that, you know, not only should I attend massages, I should also be involved in the service that people who come to it because that's
that's how that's an honor that I'm putting you are a guest of Allah and I am honored to be on his behalf Subhana wa Tada welcoming you to his home. Understand the idea it's a very, very profound concept if you if your connection with Allah subhanaw taala is appropriate, and the people of India seem to understand it, and I don't know why we don't like I don't see what the
You got a masjid.
Like if you, if you if you survey people, I don't have to survey people because I don't have to actually do a survey because I'm stuck talking to people anyways. So the majority of people I speak to will have problems go to my surgeon, their experiences are always something that's not positive upfront, meaning they keep on going to the masjid despite the first or second or third bad experience they had by going there and being chastised for that or yelled up because they put their shoes in the wrong place, or because they didn't know how where they will do place was or they stood funny, or they were wearing jeans, or they didn't know or their phone went off or something. So
their experiences are always little bit negative. And then but they kept on going. They kept on going. And this is not like in one month or two I've been in I've been in massages all my life as a kid. And I thought it was the norm for the
for the person to get at the masjid to be it always very strict with people and I knew that's what I thought that seemed to meet to be the norm. And so I met other scholars and I watched what they did. And I watched one of my shoe. Oh, he I didn't even know the way I met chef Shoukry later. How much have you Rahmatullah Ali is I was sitting in the masjid attending something and he was walking around giving water to people. And he's an old he's very old in his late 80s. So he offered me water and I said no, in the shift who was with you a couple of customers. He slapped me on the head. He said, Take the water. So I took the water. I said I am not thirsty, like just drink the water. So I
drank the wine. I give it back. He said you know what this person is like no. And then he starts counting for me. Like the this man speaks four languages amongst them French and Persian. He was a giant mountain of karate last time it was perfectly Hanafy a very, very known one. And the man was extremely educated. I ended up spending a significant amount of time with him rahamallah But he that's what he did. He just he put the shoes on once the mustache was happening one time and gave water that's what he did all his life. And he refused to ever put it down if you want if you try to take away from him, there's no there's a there's water there and go take it and give if you want if
you want to help go ahead and help but you're not taking this is what I do. And this is just the concept that they learned. It's an honor to serve the guests of Allah soprano. These are things up of Jackie Lee and they understood this in the proper order. Your thought was that I'm coming from bunny Hersham because her Shem the son of adminer took that from his dad like that it became bento Hashem thing to take care of the hygiene. Not all of his brothers wanted it. Some of them like yeah, ribbit to give it to you. So Hashem, his name comes from from the Hashem is when you're taking wheat and you're making it, you're pounding and making something small. So that's what he was called. It's
not necessarily Hashem is not even necessarily his name. It was something it was it was a nickname that was given to him and they differ on what his name actually is. And of course, he sought some is known as Hashimi he's from Benny Hashem, his family has been worshipped. And the reason being because Hashem took upon himself to to take care of the objects take care of the visitors of the house of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is his his family name out of your salatu salam, and you're going to run through your life, you run into people who who come from his lineage that Allah has set themselves up a little hammer was was from his lineage, he is brought from he was a Hassan Eema
means his lineage goes back to Hassan had been Ibnu ally, even the faulty faulty mine in the rosulip Bibbins Rasulullah.
And they understood what it meant to serve to serve for the sake of Allah subhanaw So know his name it has sought to Islam, we may do a at some point, a competition to see if people can can recite his name from beginning to end just died. Now you don't have to know more than that, because we don't even know that necessary after that. But it's nice to at least you know who he is out of his slots and have a good understanding of his background.
You know, this is not gonna listen, you can just, you can just get rid of it. All right. So what do you get? When was he born out of his salatu salam, we know it's a Monday we know it was a Monday so Allah Allah CIBJO Salam because he said that later on, he was asked later on why do you always fast on Mondays Bacala
we all when he's Muslim called yo when will lead to V he is today that I was born on he was born on a Monday. So he used to used to, you know, fast Mondays. It's interesting to me that he carried when he was born out of your salatu salam. And that says something about you know, he cared about his own birthday when he was born. But he didn't do it the way we did do it where he or he expects a cake and gifts. He did it in a way where he gave something back he did something clean. And that's a really really important piece to acknowledge and notice within Islam, we are celebrations are not to receive our celebrations or to give this is this is the Islamic way of celebrating when you do even
subtler after fasting for 30 days. How do you celebrate? You expect people to know you give your Zakat and filter you give you take money out of your pocket? How do you celebrate you slaughter and then you give meat to people to eat as always, you celebrate in his time by doing something of how you that you don't normally do something extra something extra of good deed that you don't do on a normal basis to celebrate this day. So it's an it's very specific and that's how we celebrate as Muslims by by increasing our acts of worship by drawing ourselves closer to Allah by doing something for the sake of Allah Subhanallah that we don't always do. So his choice was not to celebrate his
birthday annually, but to celebrate his birthday, we
equally by fasting on them right? So we know we know for sure that it's a Monday Yeah
Yes, you bet you've asked on fasting on Thursday for a different reason because that's the day where your deeds are shown to Allah subhanaw taala. Every Thursday your deeds before Juma are packaged and it's and it's displayed as a package for the weekend. And he says, I want my deeds to be, I want my deeds to be looked at and reviewed while I'm fasting. Hopefully that gives me a little bit of a Yanni hopefully, I'm forgiven, because if they're not great, at least I'm fasting that day, and that hopefully will help me out. So Allah, Allah, Islam, Islam, it was the spring of either 571 ad, or 570. And scholars have always deferred and you're like, Well, how can it because the numbers during
that time were just approximate? We don't we don't know for sure. We know it was I'm in field, the year of the elephant. I told you the story last time, the year of the elephant, whether it was 575 or 71. There's a little bit of difference of opinion amongst historians. I tend to think it's 571. It lies if you actually if you take out your phone, and you just go to Apple calendar, right, you can actually go back to 571 ad. And you really it's not that hard. If you want to do it just for the fun of it. Go ahead and do it right now. And you can go up and you can go back to the trove of OBL Oh, well, because that is the day that most scholars believe he was born in Holly Hill salatu salam,
again, there's difference of opinion, some say seven, some say 17th. There's little bit of a difference of opinion. That month, we know for sure he died then they get salatu salam so Allah and he passed away. But that's what we believe most scholars believe that was the day he was born as well. The TOEFL will be at Owen. So if you scroll through it, you're gonna find it towards the end of April. It's towards the end on the 24th of April or something like that, and you can take a look and see, but that was the time he was born. So Allah, how do you send them?
Let's go back a step before we talk about the moment he was born.
After the Multilib had another children, I will thought it was one of the oldest and that we thought it was way older than the Prophet Allah your son's father Abdullah, way older to the point where Abdullah Abdullah McCallum son, and Abu Talib son were the same age. So the father had a son, right. And then the son had a son, but the father was still having children. So now he, his son and his grandson are the same age. So Abdullah was a younger son from Abdullah McLennan. That's where the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had. And he, he had, he had uncles and he had cousins who are much older than him. And this is very common, especially in families that come from rural areas. My family is
the same. I got to know my father's cousins and uncles and some of them are my age and maybe just because people end up being having reproducing or being reproductive for a longer period of time and those parts of the world. So Abdullah was a younger son of Abdulmutallab.
And once he was ready to get married his father got him married to a lovely lady by the name of Amina Ben Taub. And I'm 1112 was also from Croatia. So they were both both from the lineage of course I even Caleb Kabaneri in the volume field Malika, so the same that same that same lineage.
I mean, I got pregnant.
Two months into her pregnancy, Abdullah passed away on a
business journey. He passed away and he died in Medina, and yesterday. He was buried there. They're gonna say, Well, what was he doing there? Well, if you listened to last time, I told you was the Abdul Muttalib.
What the mortality was mum was from yesterday. So his uncle's were from yesterday. So Abdullah, his son knew that his dad's uncle's one Yep. So he would constantly come, he would frequently do business with them and go there. So on the way back from a business trip, he stopped there where his uncle's are in year three. He got ill passed away there. He was buried there.
And Amina gave birth to the profit out of your salatu salam, as an orphan as long as I've never said the word father in his life, ever. He never He never had a father. You never know. It's really interesting to me that that's the case. Because I saw so when you look at his life, he was a father to all of the Sahaba he was a father to them. He actually said it in the
material world, if you like like a father to you, and you watch him throughout his life, it is awesome taking care of the younger ones, being a father figure to all of them Dolly, maybe Taliban to Jaffa into Athena disease and harissa. And later on to his son who cement him or either been jumping into Mohammed Bin Laden, if you look at all these names, he was to them it is something like a father, he took care of them as if he was a father, and he loved them like a father would love his sons and he and he watched out for them, even though he never had a father hunting his daughter with him to offer him that which he was offering others. So Allah honey, it's like, and this to me is
just a really interesting point to think about. If you are deprived of something, don't become disgruntled and then you know, use that anger and project that anger on others and if you are deprived of something and you see you understand how painful it is not
To have something, show that empathy to those who are similar to you, right? See, we're talking about his being an orphan because he was he's already gonna be orphaned a couple of times in his life. I just saw this. The first time he got orphaned. He wasn't even he was still a fetus. He wasn't even born out of yourselves. And his father wasn't there. He came into the world that foster father wasn't there.
Was he harsh with orphans with no, it was the opposite, was the opposite. I know a cafeteria team Myka. Her team. And this is this is a lesson for for all of us. If you go through a difficulty in life, and it really does hurt you, and it takes a lot away from you. Don't turn harsh, don't become cruel. Don't know, do the opposite. Take that experience and use it so that you can generate empathy and compassion towards those who had the same problem. We constantly I see it a lot happening the opposite I see a lot people especially someone who goes through in their youth goes through a couple of problems that could do a few mistakes. And then it can very harsh when they're older, with
people, the same age group making those same mistakes. And always wondering why you didn't you do the same thing. I remember this happened once and I shouldn't have done it. But I did it anyways.
I shouldn't have done it. It was a mistake. And he was an older guy telling someone else not to smoke. And I told him I didn't like you smoke for like 10 years during this time. And he was very embarrassed of it. And you walked away. But But I was young. So forgive me. But I always find it difficult. Why is it that we're very harsh with people who who walked the same path that we did, if anything, if anything, you shouldn't be harsh, but I think you should have enough compassion, empathy to understand, because you understand, you know what it's like, you know why someone would do this, you know why you understand why someone would end up walking down this path is not a good
path. But you understand how they will get there, I find that someone who never walked that path may not be able to relate, because you don't know what it means I didn't I never did that before I can understand it. But someone that's why the best
Rehab facilitators are people who at some point, abused a substance because they understand what it feels like they empathize with people. The problem is, is that I'm was born an orphan. And you look at his life, it is on him as the Most Merciful human being towards these people who didn't have parents and to the point where he was he was he was he was emotional about it. And so it was sudden, you see him hugging the children of Jafra, have you thought about three passed away on the day of water, just hugging them kiss me kissing their heads and sobbing and standing there asking who will take care of them and who will be who will be risk, who's willing to be responsible for these
younger people financially and take care of them moving forward in their lives. He obviously took care of them for the time he was alive. But he knew his time was coming to the end. So he needed someone to get in your narration is that five people put their hands up fighting over who would take care of them that will will kill Lua. He didn't mean him a formula Ferny and they're all poor than the other one. They all just did. They they don't have much to begin with. But But he had taught them how to use awesome that that empathy.
He was born out of useless wisdom. There's a lot of stories about what happened when he was born stuff. Now, I don't know, if all the stuff that they say happened when he's born happened, I don't know I don't have evidence for it. Like I'm someone who goes by evidence I go by, I go I need some I need some authenticity for the stuff that I read, or else I don't, I don't tend to share it out of respect to any people's brains and minds. But I think there's enough controversy on the topic that if you were told otherwise, or taught other ways you can believe whatever you were taught or if it makes sense to you. It's not beyond the Grace of Allah subhanaw taala for the for the day, the
prophet it was born for certain things to happen in certain parts of the world as a as fine, I just don't have the evidence to kind of support it. So I don't end up carrying it out of respect for people but that's it. But I don't see it beyond the ability of Allah subhanaw taala and the grace of Allah subhanaw taala for there to be certain things when he was born out of his selflessness. But I think sometimes focusing on maybe some of these stories that would happen he was born takes away from the focus on what happened when he lived. Forget, the changes didn't happen. When he was born. The changes happen after he lived out I just thought it was what he did wasn't understand the
difference here to get to focus on what everything that the stories talked about when he was born happened later on. Like all of them happened, but they have not because he was having because what he did, because of the work he put in because of the years that he spent out of his lives and working day and night was and building a community and and changing mentalities and educating people and that all these things happen just like the prophesy said but they happen when he when he was there not not the opposite some Allahu Allah CIBJO Salam.
But of course, there is a Hadith there's a hadith with a certain degree of authenticity where he says all your thoughts and I'm Anna, the hour to be Ibrahim I am the daughter of my father Ibrahim.
Rob and our bathy him Rasulullah min. And fusina through Ali Tikka where you are living whom will kita but when hikma tell us a key him in Mecca and ISIS will Hakeem Ibrahim has he built the car but he and his son is made he said oh Allah sent among send amongst the people who come here, a Prophet from amongst them who will who will teach them well. That's the in he is the answer to that door audio source. So what we wish them I think
ISA and I m the good news that Sid said most of the time
soon yeah team embody is smooth, smooth Ahmed or is Mohammed resorted to soft. So any Saudi then you'll find that by the way that the Bible still has wordings for it if you're interested to look into it, the name is there and it's all quite well documented. But what to me is hemella to be no moron. Yeah Hello, Julian how you legal persona Shermie Basrah I Napoli believable Sarah is that my mother when she was
pregnant with me in her dream, she saw a light beaming out of her that would that was so powerful that it lit up the castles of Damascus meaning the the the northern guy went that far. So she had she had some bush
in his birth it has Salatu was Salam.
He was born out of salatu salam and the Fajr of Monday in the spring, a 571 add
to a single mother, very little wealth. She didn't come from a wealthy family either. You see all of the shut off that his family has hammered in Abdullah, I'm not gonna call him his his grandfather, it was one of the even if he had been he shall have been Hashem, it will say his his lineage is a lineage of of great people, no money,
a lot of status, a lot of respect. There was knowledge, there was wisdom. There was integrity, there was great ethics, not a lot of money, never a lot of money. His family even have a lot of money, and the family of his mother didn't have a lot of money either.
And this part of the story is one of the most difficult parts to tell.
Because it's just
you understand why
the norm for Quraysh, the norm for Christ was that once you had a child for the first few years of their lives to three years or so, you will send them to one of the tribes that lived on the outskirts of Makkah in the valleys.
Where for four reasons I'm gonna show you see if you can
all right, there you go. There's actually in Saudi Arabia, just so you don't think the whole thing is just a big desert. Now there's, there's more to it than that. So I will say that for exploration is a city where it's just mountains around and outside this zone people couldn't survive. You have the Kaaba, it's very dry.
And it was a
in the measures of that time and metropolitan like at that time, because people from all over the place came either work there live there, commuted did business, it was a very busy, busy space. And it was easy to get sick there. And a time where vaccines did not exist. And it was easy for disease to travel because people were coming from Yemen coming from Damascus bringing stuff with them. So a lot of children would die in their young ages. So Quraysh came up with the idea that we what we do is once we have a child, we send them outside of the city, the you know, the small Matchbox is where the people live in and there's no room for children send them out to the countryside, where they can
learn the language, they can learn the proper Arabic look at Croatia, Croatia, because the proper Arabic because so many people come
come to America with different accents and different tongues. The children end up picking up all these different acts if they don't learn the proper Arabic. So they would want to send them out, send them out to the tribes that speak the Qureshi. Yeah, and the proper Arabic that we speak today, to learn that to grow up in a place where they would be an open is, it actually is meaningful for a child to grow up and see see the horizon. It's figuratively and literally helpful. If you if children live in small spaces all the time, it will affect their mentality and affects the way they think later on. You want children to grow up in play where they see the sky and they see the sea and
they see land and they see the openness of the world that they live in. That helps them later on understand that actually where they live, I think a lot of what we struggle with today is that because we all live in, in the small spaces, and then we've made even smaller spaces, that the stairs are very, very stuck in these very small. So it ends up affecting the way we actually think there will be function. On the other hand, their iPad, at that point was just the sky. So they just stared. It was very it tells a lot of stories, by the way, there's a lot to look at. So they thought that that was very helpful for these good fresh air. It's good fresh food, it's an open area, less
disease, they learned the language, it sounds good. And they had agreements with all of these different tribes but aside but all these tribes to come in at certain times during the year to take some of these children and the kip child was called the McDonald law many will be sent to be breastfed and taken care of in that with that tribe and they would pay these people money to do that for them. Obviously it sounds very kind of awkward because who was gonna give up an infant but but they did it because they'd rather that than the child picking up a disease and then dying or being stuck in a space and living a life where where they don't have it was only the people who had some
Do this or people who had some, they were thinking about this back then I always find it fascinating that this is something they thought about the people of Jay Haley from Croatia, with no technology at all. They thought about this No, no, we need to get the kids out of the cities into the countryside so they can learn what pollution could they possibly have back then that would cause him to want to ticket get outside of the city? What would they say if they came and saw what we're doing here today? Well, I find it very, very interesting.
So, um, you know, mental hub would take would take the baby. So Allah Holly's, like you said,
As you stand with the women who are waiting for the different tribes, for the people coming from other tribes to pick up children because that was their day. They were agreed upon days where they would come in, and they would do it. She's standing there and doing that. Now the person who tells us stories, Halima Halima, we call her Halima Sadie, right? Because she's from Benny sad. That's the that's the tribe she comes from. So she tells the story, in her own words, and what she says is,
but according to her courage to my eyes, oh, Jean, I know that Ilana could die but workable rot or Charcot and left with my husband. And we had this camel that was old and just not working. He could barely walk. He was always behind the whole group. Web and Eli Anam with Allah Allah, Allah and Horace really are working in the Sierra Club in his hop it my son, what do you sleep day or night she had a son. Now only the people would do this are women who had children? Because how you're going to women, a woman can't breastfeed. He says he doesn't have a child was your own child. So the women would come and do this were the women who had children during that period. So they could they
could afford to take another child with them. And they were able to be to breastfeed both. So she was like, I had my own child. He wouldn't stop screaming all the time. I didn't have a lot of milk, or a camel wasn't working. My husband didn't want to do this to begin with. So he tried to take your husband somewhere he doesn't want to go
if you're married
and you've been married long enough and you want to get your husband to go somebody doesn't want to go you know what that looks like? So he doesn't want to go to going anyway. going on for tomorrow on a hidden model the art Yes, Elena and who Samantha was now all the ladies who are in front of her we're going asking about these children. They do like a little bit of a you know, meet and greet and get to know people and they agree on who will take home. Every time they come to Amina, they asked her oh, what's his name? Muhammad Sallallahu ala Muhammad so I said I'm gonna talk about his name and show at the end of this Harlequin before we wrap up, because it's important
in the as well who's his grant? Whose is it? Was it from so I'm gonna jump and say, Oh, he is the grandson of Abdulmutallab and recall. What about his dad? Or his dad passed away? Oh, I'm so sorry. And they walk away. If we're gonna lay sit over.
His father is not there. They don't want just the agreed upon money. The way it used to work was, yeah, you'd be paid. But then the father wants to see his son, he can't help it or see his daughter. So we'd come and he would come to see his child and he wouldn't come empty handed. He would come with gifts. That's way that's the way they would they would do it. So he's like, Oh, he doesn't have a father. Oh, okay. Then that gift piece is all gone now. So they because they look forward to that piece. So they will keep on moving on the whole Halima firma Robbia to be here had not one person would wanted him the whole well. I didn't even want
I didn't want him either. I was just like everyone was I asked the question I heard I moved on call from the hub to enhance the anti Flynn who is building more reality a husband whom he married I went to find someone and you know how it is your musical chairs with this chair that and then oh, there's nothing left. She's like they taken all the babies and the only person stuff standing was Amina with Mohammed Salah Muhammad.
She, she didn't if she didn't know what to do, she didn't want to take a child an orphan who wasn't gonna get much and at the same time she felt a little bit you know, I just kind of awkward like, Oh, do you have someone? Oh, yeah. No, there's no one left to say that. Yeah, I'm waiting for someone to bring their child but there's no one there. So she felt a bit awkward and she ended up qualifying because to
me who have cooled off enough cielo Rama, who I talked to him and I was talking to myself, I shouldn't have taken him. I don't know how to Salalah Hollis. I knew some of them are shallow who be 70 bucks in Daraa Hema I do the team worker annual fee. He means he didn't. When they bought us if they bought him for a couple of nickels, just a couple of pennies
to draw him
to feed him in his car. He didn't neither the person selling thought he was worth anything. Neither the person buying thought he was worth anything it he'll sell to them. Later on becoming the ruler of Egypt
later became the ruler of the land. Aside from being in Viola eleemosynary his salatu salam one of the great people who ever walked the earth sometime
Most people don't know your worth. That's okay. Okay, they didn't know his worth out of his Serato. Sarah, she didn't know she didn't know, the other people ladies didn't know either. And they said no, if they knew they would probably take him but they didn't. Sometimes Sometimes people underestimate you and that's alright. And they'll look down on you and think that you're not you're not worth it. Okay, so don't you're not better than Mohamed Salah Salem. They no one wanted them. No one wanted them. They're like, Yeah, okay, he's cute. I'm okay. Yeah. You're so funny. He was older. No one wanted him either. So Okay. Okay. Don't be bothered by that. You see, people don't give you
value. Your value doesn't come from people, what people think what people think of you does not increase or decrease your value in any form or manner with regard to time. Okay, yes, yes.
What people think of you does nothing for you at all your value is innate, is given to you by God Almighty himself. It's a constant value never goes away, nothing will make it more. Nothing will make it less people mistreat you it stays the same. People say he is the great demon stays the same. But if you are eluded to think that when they say something negative about you, you have less value. When they say something good about you. Now you have more value than That's your problem. And to fix that, your value hasn't changed. The only one who increases your value or decreases IT is Allah The one who gave it to you to begin with. And he does that for you almost. As far as you notice in life,
your value is the same. You're human come from x Subhana, WA, tada, he, he gave you a very he does a lot of potential in you. He believes in you. He sees something in you. That's why you're here. Now either you fulfill that or you don't, but your true value will only be revealed into the objective by the Almighty himself and no one else can touch it. No one touches it. The Prophet either yes or no. I mean, it's just there. No one wanted him. So Allah FaceTime yourself. What? She said, I told him, I said, I gotta get on the camel. The camel starts to the jog is ahead of everybody. Suddenly, I'm filled with milk. My son shuts up. He starts screaming. I breastfeed both them. So the husband
he looks back for Carla.
And Nikki? Deena semitone Mubaraka seems to me you took a blood soul with you.
I'm gonna say it'll be Allah who I know to hammer home. I don't know if he accepted Islam in house and his name was but I hope he did. Seems like a very beautiful gentleman. He just looks nice. Anyway, stop feeling bad. Maybe he's an orphan. But I think I think that took a nest a blessing saw. And then she tells her story. I'll end with that because we aren't 10 minutes for I'll tell you the content.

Second question. Although people didn't like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they couldn't say anything negative about him. Is that true? Or is that false?

The leaderboard is continues to remain constant.
Let's try and get one question at least where everybody gets it correct inshallah this one
the main reason Quraysh didn't accept monotheism was was it the aesthetic of the Kaaba, was the money was it status or was it power
