hamdulillah salam ala Rasulillah whether it was Saudi woman whether shadow Elijah and Elijah Khalid Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rasulullah Salallahu Salam Heidi. So this is a series actually that we've been discussing about launching for faith essentials for over a month now. And so it wasn't necessarily something that was launched because of what's been going on with regards to the the offense to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or our Prophet our honor campaign. But this obviously just made it more timely Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is something essential, or he is someone essential for us to know he is a part of our faith. He's an essential part of our faith. And
so inshallah that in the future, we'll have an actual designated module for for Sealine faith essentials. But until then, we're always in need of learning about the province, the whole idea sent them in this in this era is this inexhaustible resource for us. It is a source of inspiration. It's a source of commitment. It's a source of guidance, of course, for it is a source of innumerable amount of lessons, you know, he is the greatest figure to ever arise in mankind. And if you've heard my poem before it goes, If a man has a billion and a half followers, his status in history isn't debated. So why is the greatest man then when great men are rated the one that you don't know. And
the poem was addressed to non Muslims, but it can also be addressed to Muslims. We spend a lot of our time following a lot of different figures. And if you were to then be asked questions about the province of Elijah has ended up your information about him maybe wanting, and that's not a good position to be in, when he was the one whom Allah subhanaw taala made an OSA for us, for whoever desires this world, and the next.
Or whoever desires ALLAH SubhanA died and desires the Hereafter. And he is as Allah subhana data described him as a mercy to the world and you can't love someone that you don't know. And so when people ask the question about how do we defend the honor of the prophets of Allah do sell them? Well, the first step in defending him is knowing him in the first place. The first step in defending him is you yourself, getting to know who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is you studying him you learning about his sunnah his CLR
because the more you learn someone have noble attributes, the more you love them, and loving the Prophet sallallahu de send them is from the perfection of faith, the prophets, Allah light ism doesn't have you believe, until I become more beloved to them than their parents and their children and all of mankind. When a person loves the province, a little idea, set it up to that level, and I'll model Delano as the province of a lighthouse and let me he said, O Messenger of Allah, I love you more than my, my, my parents, I love you more than my children, but not all. And he said, Omar not until I become more beloved to you than yourself that is between your your your own body. And
then he said, and he said, then I do now I do love you more than I love myself. And then he said, Then now then now I'm so the prophets of Allah Islam
is teaching us and taught might have been clobbered with the line and the importance of of, of us loving him more than we love ourselves, because we're going to need the progress a lot like this. And the more than we need ourselves on the Day of Judgment, in any case was a little lost a little like this. And what we'll be doing, travelers will just be going back and forth to different moments in the CLI, it's not necessarily going to be something in chronological order, it's not going to be you know, we're not going to be taking the city at all, from cover to cover step by step. That's not the objective here. But we are going to be looking at snapshots we're going to be looking at moments
in the life of the prophet for the ladies and then we're going to be seeing what Quick Lessons what lessons are challah data we can extract from them. That's the goal inshallah. So
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as you know, story starts as far as his messenger ship in a cave, the cave of hell up and has anybody actually been to hell out Have you ever climbed the mountain of Hara I remember I did it.
One year and we had went after salata, Juma, which was like the worst time it was our first time to go and we went after salata, drummer which is the worst time in the world to go if you ever go don't go during select, don't go after slides of drum I don't go in the middle of the day, don't go in the sun is beaming down on you the entire way. And it's actually a very long climb. It was a very long climb. And they've actually carved steps into the mountain now but when the province of the lightest and obviously climbed it, there were no there were no steps. And I remember it was me and another brother and one brother who was younger than me and another brother who was older than me. And this
was right before
We're hedge. And so we were, we were ascending and we were climbing mountain and a lot of people are climbing up in there, they're going up and they're going down. And so when we eventually got to the top, you actually have to descend
down the mountain again to to get with to where the cave is. So you have to ascend. And then you have to get to the top eventually, and then you have to come down. And it was one of those climbs where every time you think, okay, that's the top you get, and you find out, that's just another ledge. And then you climb Oh, that's the top and then it's another ledge, it was like three or four times I'm thinking like, I finally got to the top and it wasn't that. And so when we came to the other side, it actually wasn't a cave at all. It was literally like two big slabs of of rock, two big slabs of rock. And this space to fit a single person.
You would imagine a cave like the size of a room maybe or you know, no matter, but it was a very small space. And it was only space enough to fit a single person. So people were were waiting in line. And people were walking inside and they were you know, praying to rock is there. And I remember getting upset about that. And I'm telling people like in whatever language I could, you know, this isn't a place for you to pray so long as it's not the sunnah to pray to rock as in the cave of Hara. And then I realized at some point that I'm, you know, on the side of a mountain ledge, and I'm screaming at some people be this isn't the best idea to be doing. But in any case, it's a
very small place that the province of a lady Selim would spend days and weeks in very small place. It's past it's possible Arabic that the cave changed over time Allah Subhana Allah knows best. But when Rasul Allah cellulitis and experiences that terrifying moments of extra mana Bukhari of Quran and he's being commanded and being squeezed by Gibraltar is Salam. And then he's being told that you're the Messenger of Allah, and he sees God.
After he leaves the caves, and he's heading back towards Mecca, he sees Djibouti sitting on the horizon and his wings are covering the entire horizon.
And he comes to Hyderabadi Allahu Allah, and Hadith.
The Prophet Allah lives in my Isha, who's narrating the Hadith she says that his heart was trembling, his heart was shaking. And eventually when the Prophet saw the light is in them tells Khadija the story what occurred to him. She says to him Killough hola hola. Yo physique Allahu Aveda. She says, Know about Allah. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will never forsake you. Allah Subhana Allah will never, ALLAH SubhanA data will never disgrace you. Why?
Why would rasool Allah Azza wa sallam and hadith is eyes, why would also the loss of Allah this and love never be disgraced? She says, Because you maintain the kinds of kinship, she says you maintain the kinds of kinship and you assist those who are in need.
And you support those who are oppressed, and you support those who are oppressed. And you assist those who are afflicted by calamities.
What she realizes and what she knows her husband SallAllahu wasallam is that he is someone who takes care of the guest, he honors the guest, he supports those who are in need, he maintains the ties of kinship, he supports those who are oppressed, he defends those who are oppressed. And when people are going through their worst moments, a prophet Sallallahu Sallam is there. And so she realizes, and she says to him, that Allah subhana, Allah to Allah would never forsake you because of that, and these concepts that she recognizes in her husband, and that she has the incredible sense and the incredible brilliance and intelligence and perception to recount to him in his moment of his
greatest, you know, surprise and doubt and fear, she is able to reinforce him with qualities that she's already aware of, and that she's already appreciative of. And so, just even in that subtle insight to their relationship, you get so many lessons just from the get go, if you are pushed to shelf in a moment where you are asked or you are in need of of describing the best qualities of your spouse would you be able to do so do you have that which would come to mind and roll off of your tongue with regards to those who you have the most intimate relationships with well, even if you're not married, but if it's your your brother or your sister or your or your or your parents themselves
or your own children, do you do you have the ability are you so aware of the positive qualities that people have around you that you are spending the most time with? So that you can be able to describe them in such a positive and beautiful way in such a such a reinforcing way? And so these concepts these
concepts that the prophets of Elijah said and how he had them before prophethood. These were qualities that were sort of loss of Elijah syndrome was given they were, they were natural for him, he didn't need revelation for them. And so when they then become guided and supported by revelation, they become even more powerful, and they become even more luminous. And so us as a, you know, practicing Muslims, people who are involved in that, or people who are students of knowledge, people who are learning people who are teaching, let us not forget the importance of these qualities, that hadith God Allah had recognized in her in her husband salatu salam, the reason why she saw him to be
so protected by Allah subhanaw taala. And these qualities were not the qualities of just the prophets of Elijah salah, but they were the qualities of the prophets of the prophets. And so Moses is set up when he is fleeing Egypt. And you know, he came out of Egypt in fear, and he's a fugitive, and he's got people chasing after him and he's wanted, and the punishment may be death for him, either he set up and he goes to Medina, and he is so ravished. And he is so so, so weak. And so, I mean, he's just been he's doing traveling on foot, he's been traveling in fear. And yet, as he arrives, he witnesses something that's wrong.
He witnesses something that's wrong, he sees two girls off to the side. And some shepherds are basically feeding and bringing water to their animals. And these two have to wait for those shepherds to be done. They have no access, they have no access to the resources that they should have access to. And Musa saw that to be wrong. And so even though he's not from there, he's a stranger. I mean, naturally, guys, naturally, when you're in a stranger in a place, you kind of you know, they say, if our Quinta lady
for cool idea, that if you are a stranger than be well mannered, like calm yourself down whenever any one of us is in a new location or a new place. We don't you know, ruffle feathers. We don't know who anybody is, we don't know what's what and who's who. But most of it is Saddam, he says, they say, Well, you know, our father's old and we can't get access until these, these shepherds, you know, satisfy their their sheep or their their flock. And so most ideas that aren't then goes and he with what strength he has left, he goes and he he immediately takes their sheep and he writes that he writes that injustice that he sees in front of him for soccer Allahumma ALLAH SubhanA dices first
aka far means far indicates immediacy that he immediately did there was no delay he went and here let me go and he did that. And then he went away from them and he made his famous in the shade
rugby in the demands of daily trading, okay, oh my lord, whatever good you have, I am in need of it. But you see the personality of Musa alayhis salam that even when he's coming from what he's coming from, and if there was anybody who could be preoccupied by their thoughts and their imagination and their own problems in that moment, it would be most it said um, but his personality. Again, this is the attitude of not just Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, but the attitude of the prophets is that they're always in the service of others. And Musa alayhis salam in particular, I mean, his personality, and his desire for goodness for others did not even stop at death. It didn't stop at
death. And so most it is that um, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is on El Mirage, and he ascends to ALLAH SubhanA died, and he gets the commandment for 50 prayers, and he's coming down with this commandment of 50 prayers. And imagine if you and I were obligated to pray 50 prayers in a single day and night. And yet Musa they said, I'm says, what did your LORD commanded? He says, 50 And Moses says, No, go back. Look at that sincerity. Look at that. I mean, you know, there are some people who are 30 years old. They're like, I'm retired from that work. I already I did MSA, I did you know, my youth group when I was a teenager? I spent five years after volunteering for the Masjid. Now I got
married. Now I'm 30 years old. It's all about investments and 401k and this and that, right? I'm retired. I've already served my my dean. That's it. Right? 30 years old. 25 years old. 35 years old, four years old. They're retired now they just go to the masjid maybe and they come back and they talk about the dunya Musa Annie said
has passed away. And he's still sincerely advising Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam, even though by the way, and what's beautiful is remember in the story of Elijah, before that, that when the prophets of Allah they send a mitzvah
Musa when the prophets of Allah is Allah meets Musa and the prophets I send them leaves, Musa weeps, and they say, why are you weeping? And he says, this young man who has sent after me more of his followers will enter paradise than my followers, more of his followers to enter paradise and my followers, and yet we see and even hijab he mentions in his commentary on this hadith he says, don't think that this is some sort of like jealousy or envy that the prophets had no, no, no, no, no, there's another edit and proof of that is that Musa didn't sit down when the prophets Allah sent him descends with this with this command of 50 Musa days and I'm saying go back, and it gets less than
and Musa again go back and it gets less than then go back and it gets less than a Moses again, is insisting go back, you're not you're almost not going to be able to do it. I tried with banana slide. I know. And so finally, when it comes down to five most Ideas set up says, Go back, ask for less. Moses still insisting so I'm sharing this with you so that you see the incredible concern for people and love of goodness for people that the province level but he said, and the Prophets had the prophets all of them may Allah subhana diatas, Salah and Santa and be upon all of them. And so us.
This Allah Muhammad sallallaahu Salam, that's that's to be the inheritors of the prophets to do the work of the prophets. Quinton ferromet into critical three deadly Nasser, bustle Canada says you're the best match ever arise from mankind you command the good and forbidding evil to nebula. This woman that does the work of the prophets of the work of the prophets is to have incredible concern for people incredible, especially now obviously, we're in COVID. It's been a very, very difficult year for a lot of people. A call a phone call would go a long way, checking in on your brothers and sisters checking in on the people in your community, especially when we're scattered, we're
separated, we don't have the access to the massage where we used to see each other, we don't have access to the universities where we see each other we don't have access to
the social interaction that we regularly have for us to check in on each other. And so trying as best as you can to, to be there for your brothers and sisters of the province double my days. And it says in the live Yeah, I'm in and out in the live yeah only lab to my kind of Abdo, if you're only a few that Allah is in the service of his brother, Allah is in the service of his slave as long as that slave is in the service of his brother. And so the more that you are in the service of other people, the more that ALLAH SubhanA data is in your service, and who of us would not want for ALLAH SubhanA data to be in their service for Allah subhana data to be in their service?
house this is so true, the passion of doubt in our youth tends to dwindle in our 20s and 30s. I wonder why that is, I have a theory about that. And that is that because, well life changes, life changes in general, right, you go through different stages. And so when you're in your 20s, you have different you know, you have different goals. And the goal isn't necessarily that you worship Allah in any one particular way. But it is that you worship Allah subhana data at a particular level. And that worship will manifest in different ways I can worship Allah subhana data on some days by being an excellent son. On other days, it will be by giving now on other days, it will be you know, a wide
variety of things that I do to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And so my worship of Allah as a student will be different than my worship of Allah subhanaw taala as a as an employee or as a entrepreneur, or what have you. All of these things require different things from me. At the same time, I do believe that one of the big mistakes that people make is that they are not thankful when they experience a great blessing from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah says if you are thankful I will increase you. And so if a person was thankful when they were at this high level of Eman, Allah subhanaw taala would have increased them in Eema of a person was thankful when they were praying to
emulate in their MSA days and they were killing it and all of that type of stuff. If they showed gratitude to Allah Subhana Allah Allah who would have increased them. And so Shaka is something that secures the increase of blessings and doesn't diminish it. But then when there is a lack of gratitude, then the blessing itself disappears. And so you guard and you preserve by showing gratitude for anything a person memorizes the Bakara if they show gratitude and Charlotte's out it will continue on to either Enron but person shows gratitude when they accomplish anything with regards to a blessing, a spiritual blessing, then it will be rewarded with more spiritual blessings.
And one of the greatest things that a person can do when they get preoccupied in their life, at the very least, is to hold on to their God and to hold on to their do and guard those very, very, because that is what the Prophet saw the light is and then gave as a prescription for everybody who complained to him about being too preoccupied, too old, too heavy to whatever it was.
Or Messenger of Allah, the legislation's of Islam are too much for a man
He came to us with the last lesson that Mr. Day said, so tell me something that I can hold on to He said, Let your tongue be moist with the remembrance of Allah. So the person who's too busy the person who's you know, just doesn't have time the person who doesn't know too much right and and all these rules halal and haram and all that they're just too much for me, I'm overwhelmed by them. Tell me one thing that I can hold on to. And he would say, keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah. And that's why I think it is so important by the way, even when you're killing it. Even when you're you know, when it's when it's early on in a person's practice, they need to make sure that
they have a very, very strong regimen of Vicodin. Because dikkat is actual nourishment. It's it's what creates this healthy spirituality in a person because it's such a strong relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.
Okay, so on that tangent, the first of many tangents in sha Allah data, let's continue on so.
So the idea here, again, is just overwhelmingly that a person
with that they recognize that part of their Dawa is not just talking to people about Islam, but a great, great part. An important part of your Dawa is to show incredible care to show incredible concern and to show incredible service to people. And I'm very glad that we're launching this course with Dr. Emerson a man which is called
In God We Trust Islam service and justice because these concepts are so explicit in our religion and they're so important the presence of Muslims in any society is supposed to increase its its, its beauty. It's supposed to increase its justice. It's supposed to increase the service that people experience. The the own. Of course, it's supposed to increase the guidance that people experience but all of these things go hand in hand in the in the messenger ship of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, in His manifestation of being a like minded Alameen of him being a mercy to the worlds. Okay, so
it's already 30 minutes past time flies.
The second story I wanted to share with you is in Makkah,
the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is praying at the Kaaba and his privilege is Jerusalem. And sitting in the Kaaba or sitting in the Haram sitting in the in the sanctuary is
Rootsweb in Arabiya
and Shaban Arabiya, and that will lead in Euro tuber, and who may have been cut off, and the amount of new worried and Rockabye may have been wiped out. Seven of the leaders of the machinery King
seven of the leaders of the machine decayed seven of the heads of Kofoed are sitting there and they're watching the province of Elijah, send them in Salah.
And this story is being told to us by Abdullah having Massoud and I'm delighted numerous Oh, this is years later and he's he's not even in Medina anymore. He's in Kufa in Iraq. And the Muslim world has spread. And he is now sitting as this master teacher of the Muslim world. I'm delighted with that young shepherd boy from Mecca, who is the sixth person to accept Islam.
And now he is this incredible figure amongst the companions. And he's considered to be at one point, the most knowledgeable companions about the Koran. And he had learned 70 sources directly from the mouth of the prophets of the lighthouse and, and the prophets of Allah they sent him had said about underlined ministry that whoever wants to hear the Quran as if it was freshly revealed and let them listen to their citation of the blind news. He is a heavyweights, and he is a school of film in Iraq. And in any case, I'm delighted Minnesota's recounting this incident that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is praying at the Kaaba. And I'm delighted Massoud is there. And the seven machete
key in the seven heads of the machete King are there and Abuja
when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is in sujood, for this incredibly long time, Abdullah Bucha he says, Look at this Marathi look at this person who's showing off
and then he makes a suggestion to the other six. And he said Which one of you which one of you would get up and go to the camel If so, and so there was a
some family or somebody who had who had sacrificed a camel. So who will go to the family to the camel have have been Mulan, the camels have whoever and go and bring it dunk and it's blood and it's intestines like just go and get the filth of the camel. Whatever is left of the filth. Go in
cast it on the on the on the back of Muhammad Sallallahu it was
go and cast it on the Wii and the the machine Akina alacrity. Even then we're like, What are you talking about?
This was such a filthy disgusting
you know, like high school childish tactic, something that maybe a seven year old kid would do. Maybe and even that is disgusting and embarrassing. You're talking about the seven leaders of Quraysh these are the, these are the leaders of their people.
To to, to lower, to be even lower right themselves to such an act. But the worst of them, the worst of them are spa home, rock, maybe maybe my yacht said I'll do it.
And he went
and he got up and he went and he he got the you know, the dung and the feces and, and the and the, you know, the intestines and the blood. And he went and the process of the lysosome was still Institute when he came back. And he came and he poured it on the back of the prophets of Allah there said Allah.
And the Prophet SAW THE lighters and then did not move, he did not stir, and the Moshe Dickey were dying of laughter.
In fact, they were even leaning over each other. They were laughing so hard.
And I'm delighted to miss root. There'll be a line who is watching this. And Abdullah was rude. He says,
I wish that I had a tribe. I wish that I had support. He said, but I didn't have anything he wasn't. He wasn't from Kurdish. He was not one of them. He was
he was from a tribe. That was that was an ally of Kurdish. But he had no security information. He said, I didn't have any support. And so I simply watched
and Abdullah says, somebody told Fatima, though, someone told Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed Salah lighters,
and she came, and she was a young girl and fight him out of the lineup. Her father is still in sujood. And Fatima comes and she wipes the filth off of the back of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and she turns around angrily and she's cursing Quraysh she's cursing Quraysh and they don't say anything back to her. And Rasulullah sallallahu eventually rises up from his suit. And he sits in his Jelsa and then he makes testimony.
And then sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he looks up towards the sky.
And he raises his hands and he faces lb to knock this. And he says a man that he praises Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to begin his supplication. And then he says Allah Malaika be Quraysh Allahumma alayka You're correct, Allah Almighty Kabir Quraysh O Allah, I need your Quraysh
destroy Quraysh destroy Quraysh destroy Quraysh or maybe not completely destroyed Koresh, that word by they can be a coalition meaning that it is on YouTube, take care of Polish, take care of Polish, take care Koresh deal with Kadesh very good at big deal with Kurdish deal with Kurdish deal with Kurdish. And so when they when they heard that, they they they stopped laughing. And the province as I said when he used to make drought used to make drought three times. And so they stopped laughing. And they used to be very frayed afraid because they felt like you know, they believe that there are in the Haram in that place was was accepted. And so and then the Prophet sallallahu has said that
did something that abdulai Minister root said he never saw before them. And that was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then named them and he said, Oh Lama, I they could have come in his shop, or Allah deal with a bit how can we be a sham and that's a Bucha had been hakam was the father of wisdom. That was his name at that point in time, why they could get to be an earthquake near Robbia and deal with earthquake near Robbia and Shaybah MLB and then we live in Europa, and may even have an earthquake in May of 2011 where it had that dome until he counted all seven of them
all seven of them all seven of them by name the province the license has to deal with this person deal with this person deal with this person and deal with this.
Even Mr. Rude he says I never
I first saw him make dua against them, except for that day.
Like, this is an intense scene. And Abdullah Massoud who's with the province of Allah, and you've seen them so much in Makkah, and a so close to the province of the lightest, and he says, I never saw him make dua against them except for that day, except for that one moment, except for that day, and five years go by, five years go by, and the army of the machete kid that came out for the battle of Beddit.
to challenge the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that believing banned that believing group of Muslims 313 And of course, it was the great day of better than the Great, the great victory the day over for Khan and the Prophet sallallaahu. Send them after the battle was over. He said, Who will go and check it who will go and see what happened to Abuja, who will go and see what happened to Abuja. And so, the live news route again, this is all coming full circle of the live Minister route. He he goes, and he finds Abuja, and he finds Abuja, and he says, I found him amongst the
he says, I found him on the ground. And I grabbed him by his beard. He says, I grabbed him by his beard. And he said, and I said to him, Are you a Buddha? And he said, he said, All praise is due to Allah Who has a Zakia do Allah who has humiliated you, oh, enemy of Allah. And then I would Yeah, he said to him, he said to him, just tell me who won this day. Like he doesn't know he's like, who won the battle today? Is it for us? And I would underline Massoud said no, rather this day is for Allah subhana died and his messenger and
wujiang even in his last moments, he's so arrogant. I'm delighted to be stepping on his chest. He's stepping on objects chest. And I will just say to him, Look at the Taketa miss out on cyber yarrowia He says you have ascended a very difficult station, you little shepherd boy, right? He's like,
I will. I will. How come you're, you're some little shepherd boy from MCUs daring to step on my chest, even in death. Even as he's dying. He's carrying this arrogance. And so in any case,
we'll just dies. And not only did he die, but all of the seven. All of the seven whom the province cellulitis and them had named five years ago in Mecca at the Gabba. They all were killed at the Battle of better they all died in by the UN, the private civil body who said them he, these seven, the seven were then poured into a well, a well at budget. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he then said that the curse of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has followed the people of the wealth, these individuals were all dumped into a well the province has some says Allah curse has followed them into that well in the province, I said and remain that better for three days. He kept
that but victorious for three days. And then on the third day, he led the Companions, he packed up camp and he led the companions and he went back to the well. And then he called out to them and he called up to them by name, the Prophet said, and went back to the well and he called out to them by name. And he said, Yeah, about generally being a sham. And he called them up by their names and their father's names. And he said, Oh, Bucha, the son of Hashem and Omiya, the son of Harlequin. Oh, it's by Robbie. And O'Shea. But even labia and then he kept mentioning their names. And then he said, as sort of when Nico Matata Mala asada. He said, Would you wish? Would you be happy that you
had followed Allah and His messenger? Don't you wish that you had followed Allah and His messenger? In near Padua tomorrow, on your behalf? God, I have found what my Lord promised me to be true. So have you found what your Lord promised you to be true? And that's how they, they say also Allah, yours, you're speaking to people who had died three days ago. I mean, you're speaking to bodies, they don't have any souls in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, you do not hear me better than they do.
They don't hear me any less than how you hear me now. And so these individuals heard the prophets of Allah do send them three days after their demise. And in any case,
there are this scene from the battle of Baghdad and not only that, but of course Mecca. There's a lot of a lot of lessons
to be learned of them is ALLAH SubhanA died he says inertia and alcohol
that the one who hates you they are the ones who are cut off. And so this is appropriate for every time and place everybody who ever shows enmity to Rasul Allah cellulitis, and those who hate Him, those who offend Him. Those who harm him
They are the ones who will be cut off.
It is incredibly profound that those individuals and in that society in Mecca where everybody is simply everybody your worth is in who your sons are. Your worth is in who your sons are.
And you guys know from the story of you know, Abdul Muttalib when the mortality found the well of ZamZam, the grandfather of the prophesy said he was so pressured by a courageous over the well, that you know, because he discovered it, but it's so it's, it's, it's, it's a life source for them. It's water in Makkah. And so he was so pressured, he said, if it wasn't for the fact that I didn't have sons, like if I had 10 swords behind me, if I had 10 sons behind me, these guys wouldn't be putting so much pressure on me like they wouldn't be. And then he made his oath and he said, Oh Allah, He said, If Allah subhana data gives me 10 sons, then I will sacrifice the time.
I will sacrifice the time. And of course Allah subhanaw taala gave him 10 sons and then his 10th son was Abdullah, the father of the province of colitis, I live in that story. The point here is that the your sons were your own personal army and everybody needed to have their own personal army, your local strength. And so Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam these individuals these seven wishes the kid who are their children, their children, which was the apple of their eye,
they were cut off from their own children and why Subhana data says initially alcohol, the one who hates you, they will be the ones who will be cut off. They were calling Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam after because the progress of Allah they said him didn't have sons or salsa lessons, his sons all passed away. And so they're like Muhammad is after Don't worry, he'll be cut off. You'll be forgotten. He'll be this he'll be that
I already didn't in Madeira,
is killed at better. And his son, highly dignified it is who was the hobby of Rasulullah sallallahu escena. That's who he is. When you say hi to the military. There's no attachment to literally the Madeira he's hired him to read the companion of the Prophet salaallah. And so
it's very near labia, who are His children? Well, one of them very famous as who hadn't been to Earth, but the wife of my of Sophia and and the mother of Maui, and maybe Sophia. Right. I will Jad who's his son equity Maven Abijah, the great companion of Rasul Allah said, if that's what you call him, you call him the companion of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam. All of these individuals, their children,
their children, accepted Islam, and became the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu they're setting up surfline even Omiya of a holiday Fabian, Aruba and him interact when holiday seminaries and omocha Tsume will read the children of of obey me, I mean, why yet so these children of these men, became the companions of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim and I'm really amazed you know, I'm really amazed that also at the at the at the struggle in the sacrifices of the companions themselves. I mean, it's not easy, it's not easy for you to be socialized and to grow up in a society like that, where your your parents are your greatest honor and your greatest duty and they be killed
by the Muslims and you turn around and you accept Islam, that is something incredibly difficult for them to swallow and to deal with. And if you understand that, you can understand why
the son of Abdullah Hypnobabies salute, he told the prophet cellulitis because he was the head of them when I feel clean and muddy. And he said, he said, You know, I'm hearing that, you know, people are kind of indicating that my father is the is this Manasa and that he used to be killed. Well, if anybody is to be killed, then I want to be the one to kill him. Because I don't want to walk around the streets of Medina and see the face of my father's killer.
Can you imagine that? He's like, that's, that's going to be too difficult for me even even if he deserves to be killed, I will not I will always have a problem with whoever my father's killer is. That's not going to be easy for me. So if there's anybody who is going to do it, then it's going to be me and the prophets lesson said, No, we're not there's this is, I don't want people to say that Muhammad is killing his companions. That's not how it's gonna go down. That's not an underlying, innovative Mr. Lu wasn't killed. Right. But the point here is that these these were incredible sacrifices. But the Sahaba de la who made even takes up Islam and so you see the grace, the
incredible guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the incredible blessing of guidance that ALLAH SubhanA data gives to whomever he was,
of course of the really powerful scenes is the emotional center so Bula Salah Salem is
you know, in sujood at the GABA and he's got all of this filth on him and the one who comes in cleans him off his father and his daughter who's a young girl, and no father wants their
child's to see them in that type of a state, especially when they're children, you are their superhero, right you are their hero, you are the one that they look up to, and they think the world of and so for the province of Elijah, send them to have Fatima see him in such a state to be being ridiculed, some Allah Allah sent them to be, to be so to be so injured in a way that these individuals again, they actually lowered themselves to enter the province, Allah like this. And then in that way, number three, it also shows you and so and so you see the the again the the intensity of the drought of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in that moment, as well. And as well as
shows you that the pain that the province otherwise and them did go through remember that the the paths of the profits is not one that is paved with pedals and gold, the path of the prophets of Allah they send them or all of the profits is a path of that what's the path of sacrifice, it's a path of pain, it's a path of ridicule, it's a path. It's a path of all of that how many times as Allah subhana died, I mentioned is that when talking about the way that people dealt with their prophets, mocking and ridicule, and so for us, it is important that we build that internal resiliency, when it comes to giving Dawa that we don't just expect and assume and are so broken over
the fact that we're not the most popular and we're not the most loved and we're not the most this and we're not the most that to get over ourselves a little bit and to recognize that the path of the prophets, if a person is seeking word as with Allah subhanaw taala if a person is seeking Jannah, then it will come with a lot of tests and a lot of trials and Allah Subhana Allah will squeeze what is out of you. And so number three, is
to also see the incredible influence of Abuja.
The incredible influence of Abuja,
Abuja who is a great villain,
by great I don't mean fantastic in any way, I mean, large, he is this conniving, evil, intelligence manipulative villain. And as the private seller Why isn't described, he's the federal owner, this woman and you see his hand through so much of this mischief from those who, you know, were planning to kill the province of Elijah said, during his his his migration Hijra to Abuja, in this moment, even like, Look at the look at the manipulation, he doesn't say, he doesn't, he doesn't go, I'm gonna go and get this disgusting stuff. But at the same time, he recognizes that these individuals are more noble than all of this, they're not going to do it. He knows that
earthquake near Latvia isn't going to do that. He knows that. And when he doesn't, he knows that these people are above these things. And so if there's anybody who would have done it, maybe everyone else he knows that he's the only one who would do something that vile and disgusting. But if he turns around and points to you and says, Hey, you go do it. Or people might feel like why should I be the one to do it? Like, why am I the one who's being belittled? Why am I the one that you think so lowly of? And so what does he do? He just leaves it open?
Who of you wants to do it, and he knows that he's going to take the bait. And so he volunteers and he takes the bait. And he goes, and does it and everybody's laughing. And even though it was the only one who did it, they all share. They all share it in the drought in the province of Elijah suddenly because they were all witnesses to it. But this also shows you the danger
of following people who are wicked evil, cruel, shows you the danger of that how many people in our doesn't have to be a major Abu Jack, right. But how many many Abuja has are in our lives are always manipulating people to be up to no good, right? And how many people do you see that when they're under the influence of that person, they become a worse version of themselves. And when they're outside of the influence of that person, they become their normal selves or they become a better version. And so you always want to make sure that you are protecting yourself very, very severely, very strongly from negative influences, because they will drag you they will pull you they will they
they will attract you to things that you otherwise would not necessarily believe or things that you wouldn't have done on your own accord. Right but at the end of the day, once it gets done, then you can't say this isn't my This isn't my nature or I'm better than that. Right? So a person avoid these things Allah subhana died as as sort of a blocker I sabara sobre la Vina tubular Amina levena Tabata water hola addabbo, Takata be homeless BAP when those who followed
those who are followed right the leaders the evil
leaders, the people who lead people astray the people, they look back at those who follow them and they're like
I'm free from y'all. You guys had Free Will I didn't force you none of that. Right? They're gonna make all of these disclaimers and then
those who those who lost those who miss out the followers right there they're going into Gen they're going into Jahannam rather because they follow this person and they will say no and then and then phenethylamine uncomfortable Roman now we wish that we could go back so that we could disassociate ourselves from them just like they've disassociated themselves from us Alana okay
so even though these individuals were intelligent leaders, some of them were wise will Jack was able to bring out their lowest selves
will wrap up shortly inshallah data one thing to mention also is the fifth of abdulai Masood, the fifth of the understanding the intelligence, I'm delighted Minnesota have to live in this earth recognizes in this moment that he is from who they are, he is who they are, he is not Qureshi. And so if he were to storm in there and try to break them up, and all of that type of stuff, it would just make everything worse.
He would walk in and he would get beat up maybe even killed. Because they would now see it as an even greater offense. That someone who is of a lower status be challenging them. And so I'm delighted Mr. Udo Delano, right, he's from who they he's a he's a highly of Korea, she's like someone who's who's like a permanent resident. They're not really a citizen. They're not they're not natural here.
They're not from here.
Or maybe not even a permanent resident, maybe it's like a temporary visa.
In any case, Abdullahi Massoud, he recognizes that he's not able to do much. And so in that moment, all he does is what he can do. And that's the hidden in his heart, he's not able to change it with his hands, he's not able to go and wipe it off. He's not able to speak out against them. But he is simply able to witness and to hate it with his heart, even though he would wish he would wish that, you know, it was poured onto his own back, he would wish that he would be the one in the place of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, undoubtedly, but this also shows us the importance of recognizing what you are able to do and when you are able to do it. And when you're not able to do anything,
that you don't go in charging and cause things to be worse than what they are. And you study this in fact that
anytime that bringing about a monkey or changing a monkey will bring about a bigger munkar you are not supposed to change that Mongkok, you're not supposed to bring about a bigger monkey. And we see this time and time again, every time in every place, you see people see something wrong.
And then they become offended or angry or something like that. And they bring about an even worse condition for their communities or for their country even or for whatever because of the way that they went about trying to change it in the wrong manner and in the wrong way. And so after blindness or a little Dylon and underlying research is telling us a story. And you would think that maybe he might even be embarrassed to tell the story, right? You're talking about a moment where the prophets I send them experiences all of this, and you're just standing there, but I'm just sharing this with us, even though it's decades later. And guess what, he's showing this information for us because,
you know, he's not just only sharing the stories of his, you know, him standing on the chest of Wu Jiang in the Battle of bed. Now he's also telling us about the moments where he couldn't do anything, right. And this is again from the incredible sincerity of the companions about the Allah and him and their incredible fulfillment of the trust that ALLAH SubhanA dialer had placed on them and why they were selected by ALLAH SubhanA data to be the the companions of His Messenger, and so on the line was also telling us about the moments where he wasn't able to do anything. And guess what he was never rebuked by the province of Eliasson, for not doing anything. And so if I'm the
layman, who has never criticized battles over the loss of a license, that means that the profits leveled lightest and improved it there will be times where you're not able to do anything and when you're not able to do anything, the province level lightest and it tells us what to do hate it with your heart
it's amazing that again, Rasulullah Salallahu Salam never made that for them, or against them, except in that moment that we know of, according to Abdullah and Masuda, Abdullah, who.
And then the last thing in sha Allah Allah will end with is that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, even though he made against those individuals, when their children came to accept Islam, the prophet
cellulitis and I'm welcomed them with open arms. And so the private cellulitis alum was jubilant when Haile denuded came to accept Islam. In fact, hiding Lulu tells the story and he says, What Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Swami from a distance because Hadith came to Medina. And so when the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim saw him from a distance, he said, The best some of you he he smiled at me for Lahaina Museum of Disneyland Hotel after being at the province of Weinstein was continuing to smile, his smile was unbroken until I stood in front of him. And it reminded me a big hug and all of them when they came to accept Islam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam left them, welcomed them with
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam even told the other companions, he says, Let the superbill Mota, he said, Do not curse the dead for too long. And so then you harm the living, don't curse the dead and harm the living.
Even if it can, maybe Abby Jett accepts Islam and he's a companion now, if he hears the Companions cursing up Bucha and he's the federal owner of this woman, he's this and he's that he's still I mean, that might injure him, that might hurt him quite a bit of lead. Here's his father being cursed by the Companions, right? So the problem is that Allah is taught us this taught this companions this mannerism is that don't curse the dead. Don't curse the dead. And this is also, you know, something beautiful for us as well is that many times even when people who are wicked,
when they pass, their children are still alive, right? Their children are still alive, you don't want to close doors have access to any guidance for them by cursing, the dead when the dead are not harmed by it.
When the dead are not harmed by it, and
the only option is for the living to be hurt by it.
And the last thing, of course, that we have to end with is we can't let this scene go or these two scenes go by without mentioning two things. Number one is from the story of Heidi, I forgot to mention, you cannot study the greatness of hydrogen. This is one of you know this moment where she comforts the province of Elias and I'm I mean, it's a scene that every Muslim knows. And it's a phrases that every Muslim knows and it is one of those great scenes that showed the greatness of Hadiya. But you cannot discuss the greatness of Khadija without recognizing the greatness of the shuttle the Alana why? Because you will find that so many, so many of these narrations that describe
to us Hadid. His greatest moments are narrated to us by eyeshadow Divina.
Even though she says what she says I never I never envied a woman like I envied her deja, even though I never met her. I show the line that tells us she's like I never envied anybody like I envy Khadija and I show the line it even tells us of the time when she told the province of Allah he said and why do you continue to mention that old lady who passed away when Allah subhanaw taala replaced you with one better than her? And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Allah did not replace me with one better than her. And I she was the one who was telling us this. I mean, how, how incredible is that? Again, when we talk about the incredible sincerity of the companions, when we talk about their
greatness and delivering the message and then communicating to us their vulnerabilities and their truths and their mistakes and all of these types of things. They do that, with their egos completely removed. And that is part of their greatness. And then lastly, so the greatness of Aisha and of course now we also see the greatness of Fatima deadline. See the greatness of Fatima. We don't know much about Fatima with the law and how there's not a lot that is described about her. But at hamdulillah what we do know is incredible and faulty model the law and how she in this moment, even though she's a young girl, you see her strength. You see her her her fortitude, you see her
fierceness, while the law and her she comes in, she wipes it over, she wipes clean her father and she's not terrified and she's not stuttering. She's standing in front of these men of polish and she's cursing them are the Allah on how Allah
of course, you know, Allah Subhana Allah would would.
She would live to see her own father who in that moment, and that's got to be a moment that cemented in her memory. She sees her Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming back to that city coming back to that house, leading 100,000 companions
making the offer around that same Kaaba where he was ridiculed before, not an idol incites revered by everyone, as the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so this is also from the beautiful combination and so these were two scenes Inshallah, that we wanted to go over today and
Hey Beck says poetic justice Aina
Allah Donna okay so we're seven minutes pastors are gonna look at everybody see you guys next week in sha Allah Allah on Monday we'll be going over more glimpses from the seal of the prophets subtle body
