What is the meaning of strength and power and might and honor

00:01:34--> 00:02:18

and what is collected inside Buhari and the hadith of zebu rhodiola one, he brings to our attention a story an incident that took place in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that deals with this issue. What is strength? How do we define strength and power? honor and Mike is in the Arabic language. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was returning from a battle with his army of companions of the love language, Marian. And amongst those companions, and within that army will also some of the hypocrites the monarchy of Medina. And as some of the scholars said that this incident took place after the Battle of bamboo masala, which took place in

00:02:18--> 00:03:03

the sixth year of the hegira. They were returning from the battle, and they were going back towards Medina and two people had a dispute. Two people two men within the army had a dispute with one another. And that dispute was brought to the attention of the leader of the hypocrites of Medina, a man by the name of Abdullah blue Bay Ebony saloon, a man who is a hypocrite. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that this man was a hypocrite. He knew that his followers and his supporters were hypocrites. But a large soldier had told him that they were hypocrites in the Quran, Abdullayev and obey Him in His saloon. This issue was brought to his attention and he said two things made two

00:03:03--> 00:03:25

statements. The first of them was yaku, lunella. lm and Linda rasulillah Hatton Fogg do, don't spend on these Muslims. don't support these Muslims, or don't support rather the Messenger of Allah don't spend give your money to the Messenger of Allah until all of these people abandon him, or they abandon them.

00:03:26--> 00:04:10

Don't spend on these people, until they leave the Prophet of Allah don't support them anymore. These were people muslims for the majority, or in many cases, the Moto G. Ron, who migrated from Mecca to Medina. They were penniless. They had nothing, no possessions, no wealth, no homes, and we gave them shelter. We gave them refuge. We took them in we gave them asylum. Don't give them anything more, until they leave until they abandon the profits on a low quality or sentimental that was the first thing and the second statement that he made la Jana el el Medina de la region as zoom in as well. And now once we get back to Medina, we're traveling we're on our way, but once we reach Medina, the

00:04:10--> 00:04:50

strong and the mighty, will expel the week will kick them out of the city of Medina. And he's referring to himself Abdullah bin obey is referring to himself as being the mighty and the weak, and that the Muslims and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's referring to himself Abdullah and obey as being the strong and powerful and mighty, and the Muslims and the prophets on a low hourly we'll send them has been from amongst the week. Zd, Tom rhodiola, who and then later this hadith he said, I heard this with my own ears. But see the outcome is a young man is a young companion. So he said that I went to my uncle to tell him so that my uncle could go to the Prophet sallallahu and he

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

will send them and inform them inform him of the words of the hypocrites. He told his uncle his uncle went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Told him on messenger. Voila, this is what my nephew, my nephew said, heard Abdullah obey, say, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called Abdullah bin obey. And he called with him some of his friends that were with him. And he said that this is what has come to my attention that you said, concerning me and consenting the Muslims. So what is your response? Abdullah? No obey being a hypocrite. Being someone who's not invested in Islam, doesn't believe in Allah doesn't believe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said by Allah O Messenger of Allah. I didn't say that. He took oaths but Allah swore by Allah, that he never said such a thing. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:05:40--> 00:06:22

wa sallam knows that this man is a hypocrite. And he knows that xid is a Muslim. He's a believer, he's a companion. But the justice of Islam is that if someone comes to you and you have one word against the other, and as law witnesses, you can't just judge based upon one word over another without any additional evidence. The profits are lower and he will send them let him go. Some of the people said that the profits are low while he was selling them rejected zero. You didn't consider him to be truthful, didn't accept his version of the story. zeta rhodiola. One in the Hadith in Bukhari, he says for our saw benyamin Lemieux Sidney Mithra. I was overcome with grief and sorrow,

00:06:22--> 00:06:56

the likes of which I've never experienced, I came to the prophet SAW Selim with something that I considered a pressing issue. And he didn't accept my version didn't do anything about it. And other people are saying that he rejected me as a witness. He said that I went tahminae Steve, it didn't come out, overcome with grief and sorrow, but a large xojo revealed the 63rd chapter of the Quran Surah munaf upon a whole chapter about the monopoly upon the hypocrites, and in verses seven and eight, a large religion says Humala, Xena, yeppoon Latin

00:06:58--> 00:06:58

rasulillah

00:07:00--> 00:07:47

those hypocrites they're the ones who say, don't spend upon the Messenger of Allah until they abandon him. His followers leave him when he law he has a no Santa. He will or will akindele Mona Tina Cahoon, but to Allah belongs the treasures of the heavens and earth. But the hypocrites do not understand yaku Luna Raja Ana el Medina, regional as zoomin help. They're the ones who say that when we returned to the city of Medina, the strong form amongst us will expel the weak. What Illa hinder is, what do you what do you mean? When akindele Muna, Philippine Allah Allah moon, but all my honor and strength belongs to Allah, and it belongs to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it

00:07:47--> 00:07:51

belongs to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know.

00:07:53--> 00:08:35

your loved one says that when these verses were revealed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to me, and he read them before me. And he said, Oh z, Allah has attested to your truthfulness. This story and this incident, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, highlights this issue. What is strength? What is power? What is the reality of these words, and these emotions and these feelings that all of us experience or want to experience? People have many different definitions, definitions, variations of what they consider to be might and strength and honor and power. Some people think like the hypocrites of Medina, Abdullah, obey, why did he consider himself to be

00:08:35--> 00:09:19

stronger than the companions and the Muslims? Because it's to do with number, or is to do with wealth, or is to do with the nobility of my lineage and my ancestry was to do with those other materialistic things. And that is the way that many of us consider the definition of strength and power to be who's like the most money? Who owns the most houses, who drives the most cars, who has the most friends who has the most followers, who's the most popular, these are all variations of the same thing. But what is the largest which will tell us in the Quran, true power and strength and might, belongs to Allah, in the religion of Allah, in the book of Allah, believing in Allah loving

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

Allah fearing a large so what you're trusting in Allah subhana wa tada believing the promises of Allah and everything that Allah commands or he prohibits. That is where true strength and power lies. And that power and strength comes from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you follow his son, and you love him, and you emulate him and your character and your dealings and your interactions that he man that you get from the love of Allah and the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's what makes you makes you a believer. What do you learn here is a two D one meaning to strengthen honor belongs to Allah, His Messenger and to the believers.

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

The ministry for the medical or the love, we're uncluttering the muster. Remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in home one day at his home, and unless you've been monochrome your loved one was with him, and he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sleeping on the floor. The processing him didn't own a bed, didn't sleep on a king sized mattress, he slept on the floor, and he describes his mattress and he says that it was made from the fibers of the deep palm tree, rough to sleep on. uncomfortable, no mattress, no blanket, nothing. He slept on the floor. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sleeping. He had his cloak draped over him his skin was

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

touching the mattress that he was laying on, made of deep palm fibers, a group of companions into the pond, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and amongst them was the noble companion or rhodiola one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set up in order to greet these companions and to speak with them. But as he got up his side where he was lying upon, was exposed. And the companion saw a miter saw that the pattern of the mattress upon which he had been lying had meshed itself within his skin, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. When Amaro de Allahu, and saw this, he began to cry, the prophet symptoms are low and he will sell them or you kick, what makes you cry? Why are you

00:11:22--> 00:11:50

crying? He said, O Messenger of Allah, the leaders of Persia, and the leaders of the Byzantine Romans have all of the the treasures and all of their, all of their pleasures in this life and you are the Messenger of Allah, the greatest of all last creation, the most beloved of them to him. subhanahu wa taala and this is your situation, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah tada and takuna Allahu madonia. When

00:11:51--> 00:12:32

are you not pleased and happy that Allah only gave to them the life of this world, but he gave to us the life of the next. So Mr. rhodiola, who answered yes or messenger of Allah, that pleases me. The prophet SAW Selim is teaching his companions and by extension, we knew that those so called definitions of power and strength, those structures that we have within our society that define what strength is where power is who's strong, who's weak. That's not the definition of Islam. true strength and power isn't about the palaces that you live in the houses that you have the cars that you drive, if those people have no Eman, no belief in Allah, no understanding of the Prophet

00:12:32--> 00:13:16

sallallahu alayhi wasallam. All of that might and power is irrelevant in the sight of Allah. insignificant means nothing but the poorest from amongst the Muslims, who have that love for Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who believed in Allah who strive by day and by night, to worship and please Allah, even if he may be considered demeaning by other people. They consider it demeaning that we were that our women wear a scarf that men have a beard that we pray five times a day or we do this or they may consider it to be demeaning, but within it is within it is might and it is power. And it is that confidence, that he man, that strength of the heart, that the Prophet

00:13:16--> 00:13:55

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam placed within his companions. He showed them by example. He's telling your loved one. That's not might. That's not power. That's not strength, true might and power and strength comes from Allah. And it only comes when Allah is pleased with you. Everything else is feeble. Everything else finishes. Everything else is finite and limited. Everything else will stop. And it will cease to exist but allows love, allows pleasure allows mercy and forgiveness. That's something that you will benefit from long after you pass away and leave this world. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed us this with example, when you have that strong man and

00:13:55--> 00:14:38

confidence in belief in Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you can stand in front of all of creation, the whole world can gather before you and their power and their so called strength will do nothing to faze you. Didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stand by himself in front of all of the people of Mecca, all of orange and amongst them are his own family, his own kin, his own kids, his own relatives, his own friends, his own neighbors, even his own uncle Abu Talib. The people of orange came to Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the leader of arratia man was honored amongst Quraysh, respected, revered amongst Quraysh they gave him

00:14:38--> 00:14:45

rank and they gave him honor because of his seniority and age. And because of his family. They came to him and they said,

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

Your nephew, your nephew, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has disregarded the path of our forefathers. And he has made our youngsters and our slaves turn against us and he has quit

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

Besides the gods that we worship, so either you stop him, or we will deal with you and him both of you. Abu Bakr Abu Talib is a man who is respected amongst his people. These are not just people that live in the same city. They're not just people who he happens to see one day or another. These are his blood relatives. Quraysh is a family. And he is one of the most honored leaders. So he called the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after they had left. And he said, You have naki on son of my brother. These are the leaders of your people. These are the honored leaders of our tribes. And they have all come to me with a single complaint that you criticize our forefathers our gods and our

00:15:43--> 00:15:59

youngsters attending against us. So why don't you respond to some of that which they say, listen to some of their feedback, take it on board. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam generation says he feared at this moment that Abu Talib, who was his public defender after was

00:16:01--> 00:16:40

the only man who has the power and ability to stand in front of boorish and protect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the power of a large religion, no one else Abu Bakr, Omar, all of them. None of them have the ability for Abu Talib, because of his position, his seniority can do that. And the array should respect. But the process of silom thought that now that he's made this statement and has come to this point, even about politics going to turn his back, even a party will say no more enough, leave them. Now's the time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has to decide about polyps The man was cared for him from from from childhood, looked after him spent upon

00:16:40--> 00:16:54

him. We had him as if he was his own son. He said, Yeah, I'm, oh, my uncle, if they were to please the sun in my right hand, and the moon in my left hand, so that I leave this religion, I would never do so

00:16:55--> 00:17:36

if they could bring the sun with its maintenance, strengthen its power, and make me Hold it. And on the left the moon, I would still never leave this religion. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left, turn around and walked off sabaton him called him back and he said, continue what you're doing for a lot for as long as I live, they will never have that is one in learning there is a to what he was doing, he wouldn't move meaning that his strength and power to have the confidence of your convictions, and you're a man that even women all around you say that it is and I'm not just talking about the non Muslims, sometimes even the Muslims, our own family members, when you start to

00:17:36--> 00:18:14

practice religion, or you leave of something that you know, isn't from Islam, or practices and cultures that have come and crept in under the guise of Islam, and we stand up and we have the confidence to say, no, that's not my religion. You're my father, you're my mother, you're my uncle, you're my grandfather. I respect you. You have your position. But when it comes to Islam, what Allah healer is a true warrior, a Sunni he wouldn't mean in honor, power, strength comes from Allah belongs to allies, messenger and to the believers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all of the Quraysh were against him. Most of the Qureshi if not all of them, the major people of Polish

00:18:14--> 00:18:53

were his enemies, the leaders, the nobleman, the chieftains, all of them on his enemies, but that wouldn't stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from practicing his religion, where he needed to, he would go during the day to the Kaaba, and he would pray and read the Quran in front of them. And they gathered there waiting, listening. And they're amazed that this man has the audacity despite being weak, alone, few in number, his followers and even those, most of them are sleeves and women and children, that he has the courage to come and do this. So one day, they decided that they would go and take the entrails of a common a Chroma common law and places it on his back. Once he

00:18:53--> 00:19:33

was in such then prostration Abdullah bin mosteiro de la de la nourriture, this Hadith, and it says that I saw them do this with my own eyes before me, but I didn't have the strength to stop them. couldn't do anything. He can't get up and help him he's a Muslim, a believer, a companion. But that's how weak the Muslim as well, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood the meaning of Islam knew where it came from. So they put those entrails on his back and then they are removed by his daughter for the model the Allahu Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up, and he didn't just hurry away, didn't just put his head down and walk away. He went to

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

those chieftains of parish and he named six of them. Abou gehele Rosa robbia shade all of the he named them, and he said, all of you allow will destroy you. Be Miss rhodiola Juan says, By Allah, I saw all of them die on the day of better, all of them, that one of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was answered, but the point here is, look at that result. What he learned here is a to what he received he was meaning

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

This is what the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, embody. So when beloved rhodiola, one becomes a Muslim, one of the earliest to openly Professor Islam, Bilal rhodiola. One, it said that his his his his master omiya, would tie a rope around his neck. And he would give it to the children of Makkah to drag him by the neck as if he's an animal and play with him in the streets of Mecca. And he couldn't do anything. But he would raise his voice, because he has a man and he understands that even though they humiliating him in this way, true or is, what does it mean to have true strength and power? He would raise his voice and he would say, I had an ad, there is only one

00:20:40--> 00:21:23

God, there is only one God, and then Abuja Lumia would take him and he would take him into the middle of the desert, at the height of noon, when the when the sun is at its strongest at its peak, and he would dig in the ground, or he would make him lay down upon it. And then you would place a boulder on him, some of the spawners. In the explanation of this incident, they said that that desert sun in the middle of the day, the ground becomes so hot that if you were to crack an egg on it would fall so hot, and they will place a boulder on top of him and tell him to leave his religion, being humiliated, tortured, persecuted, or all he would do is raise his voice. I hadn't I

00:21:23--> 00:22:03

had only one God, there is only one God. The Companions gathered together one day and he said, These people of Polish have yet to hear the Quran from all of us. No one from amongst us. The Companions has read the Quran aloud, Abdullah bin Masuda. rhodiola, Juan stood up and he said I will go before them and read the Quran. This is not you, Abdullah, someone else but not you. Why not me? Because you're a weak man. You have no family in Mecca. You have no tribe to support you. You have no relatives that will rush to your aid when they start and they will start to beat you and hurt you not use someone else. He said I don't need anyone. I don't need family. I don't need to try. I don't

00:22:03--> 00:22:44

need anyone. He went to them. And he started reciting Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Rahman Al Rahman or an apple Insan. And he started reciting Surah Rahman, the chieftains of Quraysh, the first couple of minutes, they were mesmerized, what is this? And then one of them said, These are the words of that man, Muhammad. He's teaching us he's telling us he's reciting to us the words of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they stood up and they started to beat him and beat him and beat him until he eventually managed to escape and is bloodied and hurt. So the companion said, We told you, that's what would happen. We told you not you don't go, this is what will happen. He said that I if

00:22:44--> 00:23:24

you want, we'll go back tomorrow and do it again. While in LA, he is what he received, he was meaning to honor, true might true power. It comes from Allah belongs to Allah and His messenger and to the meaning. So this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach his companions openly, and what we think sometimes to be weakness, while we think is some fun sometimes something to be looked down upon. It's not the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will look down upon those things. If it is something that is part of this religion, Allah has commanded you to do it, as a law tells us to put our forehead on the ground in submission to him. Others may look at

00:23:24--> 00:24:05

that and laugh and think why are these Muslims putting on their heads on the floor, five times over and over and over the on the floor, their heads are on the floor. But to us, it is the ultimate strength and honor because it is worshipping Allah azza wa jal submitting before Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when we have those parts of our religion as we do, those parts of our religion that other people are not even other people, sometimes we think them to be weakness, mercy, gentleness, kindness, sometimes we think that it is weakness. If you want to have strength and power, you want to be respected, you have to show that you're tough. You have to show that you don't let anyone get

00:24:05--> 00:24:43

away with anything. And those arbitrary measurements of strength and power is what leads us to so many issues. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most Aziz, the one who had the most strength from Allah Krishna the most honor from the last creation. But when it came time to dealing with the elderly, to dealing with orphans, the widows, even with his enemies, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will show us the honor of Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam come to Medina and the Hadith and Mecca and the Hadith in Sahih Muslim when he came for the conquest of Mecca, and he said to the people of Quraysh manda Hala Dharavi, Sophia and

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

whosoever enters into the house of Abu Sofia and his arch enemy, a man for more or less the beginning of Islam who by day and by night plotted to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and destroyed this religion. But at this time when the prophets of Salaam has power, when he's in

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Charge when the reins of authority are in his hands, Whosoever enters into this man's house, he will be safe for me. And then when the people of orange gathered all of their harm, how many hundreds of Muslims had the persecuted? How many Muslims had died? Because of them? How many were oppressed? How many lost their family members? How many were separated from their wealth? And now all of them are under the profits on a long run. He was telling them, what do you think that I will do to your people of orange? What do you think you deserve for all of these years of harm that you caused to us? And he said, You are our brother, a good noble brother, the son of our good noble brother, the

00:25:43--> 00:26:24

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? I won't say anything more to you than what the prophet Yusuf Ali Salaam said to his brothers when they came back and they acknowledge the mistakes that he barely Coolio today, no revenge will be taken upon you. What do you learn here is what you're assuming he will move meaning to Allah, His Messenger and the believers. They are the ones who have his strength and power and might Maillard zildjian makers from amongst those people barakallahu Li walakum, for me, was soon one of our new Yakubu mefi him that I had to pick him up although he had a buttstock for a lot he will accompany Jimmy and Muslim included them in for sofiero in Nauvoo. Kanaka Pharaoh

00:26:36--> 00:27:18

learn from de de la salatu salam ala rasulillah What on earth he was a woman who Allah who seldom at the Sleeman kathira Amanda, what do you learn here? Is that what you're assuming he wouldn't move meaning? My strength power belongs to Allah, His Messenger and the believers. Part of the meaning of that verse part of the meaning of a large soldier having strength is that when you humble yourself before Allah, when you submit yourself before Allah, and many of us consider to humble ourselves before someone will say something to weaken our sounds before someone has something to submit ourselves before someone or something is the epitome of weakness. And that may be true but when it

00:27:18--> 00:27:59

comes to Allah, it is not true. The Prophet told us that a low early will send them the meaning of which is mantova de la Rafa Hola, whoever humble submits themselves before Allah, Allah will honor them and raise them. So when you know that by following this religion, when you respect your elders and your parents, your elders and your parents, and they're seeing something that may be even isn't correct, but you show them that respect and the honor, not because they just happen to be your parents, but because a large social commanded you to do so. That is, that is strength that is power. Remember bouhanni for Rahim Allahu taala, one of the greatest scholars of Islam to have ever lived

00:28:00--> 00:28:43

one of the four Imams, the Imam Shafi Rahim Allah used to say that everyone is dependent upon Abu hanifa after him, every one is dependent upon his knowledge, one of the greatest scholars of Islam, and despite people from all across the world, traveling to him to seek knowledge to learn to study, despite his position of knowledge and his status as a scholar being universally accepted amongst the Muslims and amongst the rulers and amongst other scholars. In Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah had an elderly mother, elderly mother, and when she would have a question that she wanted to ask you needed a fatwa, a ruling shared Islamic question, she would say to her son, email, Abu hanifa. Take me to

00:28:43--> 00:29:22

someone so I have a question. And that man that so and so was a storyteller. He would gather the people and he would tell them inspiring Islamic storyboards and amount of knowledge. He was just someone eloquent, and someone will tell stories, and the general folk would like his stories. Take me to so and so I want to ask him a question. And the amount of honey for rocky mahalo would take his mother, and he would hold her, and he would guide it towards this man. And he would sit there quietly and wait until she asked the man question. And the man the storyteller will turn around and he would say, Do you not know who your son is? Your son is the Imam Abu hanifa people from across

00:29:22--> 00:29:59

the world come to him. And he would say to hanifa Why didn't you just answer her question? And Abu hanifa Rahim Allah would say, because she didn't ask me, she told me to bring her to you. So that's what I did. That is not weakness. That is not weakness. That is the epitome of what he learned and there is a to what your su D what is meaning? A large xojo is the one who has more honor and might and when you submit yourself before the law subpoena whatever Allah Allah azza wa jal raises you in status, and the strength of the heart and the confidence of a man is the greater asset than physical strength or wealth.
