00:00:03--> 00:00:07

Our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was the perfect human being.

00:00:08--> 00:00:21

And part of being a human being, is that you have emotions. And the more emotions you have, the more of a human being you are.

00:00:22--> 00:00:37

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was not someone who was emotionless. Rather, he used to be happy and sad, pleased and angry.

00:00:38--> 00:00:58

And he used to grieve and feel sorrow, as we all do, unlike what some of us may think that, okay, how can you grieve? How can you cry? How can you not trust Allah azza wa jal SubhanAllah.

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

As if feeling sorry, over something

00:01:04--> 00:01:09

defies your trust and dependence on Allah. This is not true.

00:01:10--> 00:01:18

These are human emotions, that as humans we have to go through. But

00:01:20--> 00:01:28

when we are in paradise, all of these negative feelings will disappear by default.

00:01:30--> 00:01:44

Allah says about the people of Paradise, and they will say, Praise be to Allah, who has removed from us all sorrow, indeed, our Lord is Forgiving and Appreciative.

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

And if you look at

00:01:47--> 00:01:53

the main cause of grief and sorrow, in the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

you will find it

00:01:57--> 00:01:58


00:01:59--> 00:02:00

Allah azza wa jal

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

in the sense that whatever

00:02:05--> 00:02:19

is not positive at the sight of Allah, the Prophet SAW Salem used to feel sorry for that, above all, when he gives Dawa, when he calls people to Islam,

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

and they are defined,

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

they resist

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

and reject

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

his efforts to get them out of darkness into the light.

00:02:35--> 00:02:40

We usually could care less. I give Dawa to someone, he doesn't respond.

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

He insists on being an atheist or agnostic or a Christian.

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

I did my due diligence, I move on. I have no problem. No worries.

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

Not our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:02:57--> 00:03:15

And this shows you that our Dawa is not sincere and perfect as his. This is why we are failing and getting the same results as he did alayhi salatu salam, listen to what Allah had mentioned in many, many verses of the Quran. Allah says,

00:03:16--> 00:03:38

We know that you Oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam are saddened by what they say. And indeed, they do not call you untruthful, but it is the verses of Allah that the wrongdoers reject. So, he is saddened by the rejection, Allah also says,

00:03:39--> 00:03:51

Then, perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them or Muhammad, if they do not believe in this message, and out of sorrow,

00:03:52--> 00:04:12

which Allah azza wa jal is telling his profit as take it easy on yourself. Don't be depressed, don't give so much over them, so that it may kill you. And this is an indication that grief and sorrow may cause a person to die.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

And we see this

00:04:16--> 00:04:23

anxiety, panic attacks, people who grieve over something and they get a heart attack and they die.

00:04:24--> 00:05:00

Allah says to His messenger, Allah, His salatu salam, and whoever has this believed, let not his disbelief grieve you, because you've done your due diligence. You've done all what is in your effort to get them out of the darkness to the light, they don't want to. So it shows you how much love the prophets Allah Selim had for people that he wanted them to share the goodness that Allah has given him. And finally the Prophet I

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

This lesson was addressed by Allah in this beautiful idea, so do not let yourself perish over them in regret.

00:05:10--> 00:05:26

Take it easy on yourself Muhammad Ali solipsism. It shows you their huge responsibility that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had on his shoulders to the extent that it could have killed him

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

out of grief and sadness and sorrow, that they did not accept Islam.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36


00:05:37--> 00:05:46

a battle, which took place on the third year of Hijra between the Muslims and the idol worshipers.

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

The idol worshipers were three or four times the size of the Muslim army.

00:05:54--> 00:06:14

And 1/3 of the Muslim army, defected, led by the head of the hypocrites, and they left the Prophet alayhi salatu salam on his own. In this battle 70 of the prophets are his solid companions were martyred.

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was injured and was bleeding.

00:06:22--> 00:06:33

So one would suspect that this was the most horrific day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had ever witnessed.

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

This is what Mother Aisha asked the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

Was there any day harder on you than the day of?

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

The Prophet said that he his salat wa salam? Yes.

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

I encountered a day where I suffered a lot.

00:06:58--> 00:07:04

When at the end of my period in Mecca, your people had

00:07:05--> 00:07:18

harassed me, to the extent I had to flee Mecca, and walk all the way to five, which is approximately an hour drive on top of a mountain.

00:07:19--> 00:07:59

It's a resort for the people of Mecca, and the people of Judah like us. In summer we go there, because the weather is finer and colder. So the Prophet walked all the way out in salatu salam, and he displayed himself to even Abdi Ali Abdullah Abdullah Al, and they were the dignitaries of five of the Keef. He displayed himself in the sense that he made his pitch. This is who I am, I am the messenger of Allah, listen to the Quran, listen to my presentation.

00:08:00--> 00:08:21

And when they did not accept him, not only that, they accused him of lying. Not only that, they ordered their slaves and young boys to stone, the Prophet and his son with pimples that made his feet bleed. He said, I went down the mountain.

00:08:22--> 00:08:35

And I was absent minded. I could not recollect anything. I was so dis depressed and sad, because of the way they had treated me.

00:08:36--> 00:08:40

I came back to my conscience.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

And I was awaken

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

at ornithology

00:08:48--> 00:08:57

Imagine walking down for three, four hours, not remembering anything. totally blind it because of this grief.

00:08:58--> 00:09:08

And Gibreel came to me and said to me, oh, Mohamed, this is the angel of the mountains. First time to descend.

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

By the instruction of Allah. And the angel of the mountains said to him,

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

oh Muhammad,

00:09:18--> 00:09:36

Allah azza wa jal had heard what your people said to you and had done to you. And I am the angel of the mountain. So I'm at your command. If you wish I could collapse the two big mountains on their heads and annihilate them all.

00:09:38--> 00:09:42

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this crucial moment

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

in the midst of this depression and grief and sorrow over how they treated him, said, No, do not do that. I'm hopeful and wishful that

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

The laws are what you would extract from their offspring,

00:10:06--> 00:10:16

children and men who would testify that there is no God worthy of being worshipped other than him. Look at this optimism.

00:10:17--> 00:10:34

Look at this positivity, even in the darkest moments of his life, it his Salah to Assam. His grief would not make him do irrational decisions or take irrational decisions.

00:10:36--> 00:10:43

He always thought of the welfare and the goodness of his people. He wanted goodness for all of humanity.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

Yet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:10:51--> 00:11:01

he would still have this human emotion of sorrow and grief. Imagine his beloved uncle, Abu Talib,

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

who took care of him for over 40 years,

00:11:07--> 00:11:12

shielded him, protected him, gave him a safe haven

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

and prevented the idol worshippers from attacking him.

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

The Prophet relentlessly under his salatu salam tried his level best that he accepts Islam. But it was Allah's will.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

When he died,

00:11:32--> 00:11:58

he was grieved by it. Allah the Almighty comforted him by saying, Indeed Oh Mohamed, you do not guide whom you like. But Allah guides whom He wills, full stop, and have sorrow and grief. Yes, I love my uncle. But if this is the will of Allah, there is nothing I could do. And this is

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

an idea we should all ponder upon.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

You watching me,

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

you muslim, with the grace of Allah. The majority of you are Muslims by birth, and there are those whom Allah

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

guided them to revert to Islam.

00:12:19--> 00:12:28

You are the chosen one. Allah has given you this beautiful religion on a plate of gold or silver.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

You should be grateful and show your gratitude and remain steadfast on Islam.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

When you look at those, whom Allah did not will to guide

00:12:41--> 00:12:54

the poor, atheists, agnostics, Jews and Christians, idol worshippers Hindus see and the likes the Buddhists, Allah did not will to guide them.

00:12:55--> 00:13:20

And they will end up in hellfire. They chose. They had everything in front of them. They had the evidences to prove to them that Islam is the religion of Allah. They turned their back, they shrug their shoulders said, Not interested. Not convinced, and they will pay dearly, with depression in this life, and with Hellfire on the hero in the hereafter.

00:13:22--> 00:13:22

As for you?

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

What did you do to show your gratitude to Allah?

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

Have you prayed Fudger this morning in the masjid?

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

are you observing your fast as Allah wanted you to?

00:13:35--> 00:13:40

Are you giving in charity? Are you reciting the Quran? Are you doing your account? Are you

00:13:41--> 00:13:56

committed to Islam? As Allah wants you to? If yes, then this is the grace of Allah azza wa jal, the prophets of Allah Salam grieved over the betrayals

00:13:57--> 00:14:10

of the disbelievers the idol worshippers. And as of nomadic, says that the tribes of rare the Quan and Australia, they're all from vanilla here and from who they

00:14:11--> 00:14:14

they asked the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

to send a convoy with them, to teach them about Islam.

00:14:22--> 00:14:52

So the prophet sent 70, of the unsought and they were known to be the Quran, the reciting of the Quran and they used to recite the Quran and at night they used to study it and pray night prayer and learn and daytime they used to bring water and put it in the masjid and chop for firewood and sell it and buy food and give it to the poor so they were active in their community.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

So the profit center Mrs. Awesome to these people in the middle of array

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

Have you

00:15:01--> 00:15:08

haram even even Han? May Allah be pleased with him was the uncle the paternal or the maternal uncle of

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

an A 70 Malik, and

00:15:13--> 00:15:19

they were all killed in assassinated in an act of betrayal.

00:15:21--> 00:15:21


00:15:22--> 00:15:27

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not seen

00:15:28--> 00:15:42

grieving in sorrow over an exhibition more than he grieved for them, to the extent that he kept making dua in connote in the five daily prayers for a whole month

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

against these tribes,

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

but after one month, the command came from Allah azza wa jal to refrain.

00:15:54--> 00:15:59

This is not to you leave it as it is.

00:16:00--> 00:16:07

He grieved over the martyrdom of three of his beloved companions

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

in the Battle of MATA

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

were 3000.

00:16:15--> 00:16:29

Muslims went to fight over 100,000 troops of the Byzantines 3000 against 100,000. And some say more than that.

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

So the three leaders of the army

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

in succession, were martyred.

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

They didn't hide

00:16:42--> 00:17:02

the son of the prophet or sermon adoption before it was abolished. He was martyred. Then his cousin appointed after him to be the leader, if anything would happen to date, Jaffa Ibni avatar, his the prophets cousin and the brother of Ali.

00:17:03--> 00:17:27

And he was martyred after two of his arms were amputated during battle. And this is why he's seen in paradise having two wings, flying wherever he wants as a martyr. After that, the third and concession was Abdullah Abdullah, the poet of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

They were all martyred

00:17:31--> 00:17:51

and companions felt that they will be defeated. until Halloween, Eve Nila read may Allah be pleased with him, took the flag, lead the army and manage to retreat by defeating the army of the enemy thinking that they had reinforcement.

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

The Prophet was with his companions when all of a sudden his face changed.

00:17:58--> 00:18:14

And mother Aisha said, I could see from the crack of the door when the Prophet was with his companions, signs of grief and sorrow over his face over the demise of his three

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

beloved companions, and this hadith shows that

00:18:21--> 00:18:36

showing and expressing your grief, if a calamity befalls upon you, does not take you out of those who trust and rely on Allah as long as there is content in your heart.

00:18:38--> 00:18:44

And finally, the Prophet also grieved immensely.

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

When his uncle Hamza Ibn Abdul Muttalib,

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

the master and leader of martyrs was martyred

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

in the battle or hurt, when the Prophet Salah Salem on the day of or hurt passed by

00:19:04--> 00:19:15

women from the tribe of many Abdullah ash Hill, weeping and mourning, their marchers in

00:19:16--> 00:19:25

the Prophet looked at them with sorrow and said Hamza has no one to weep over him.

00:19:27--> 00:19:32

Meaning these women are weeping, they're dead. But my uncle Hamza has no one to weep over him.

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

So the women of the unsought heard this. And they started weeping over Hamza,

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

as a sign of

00:19:43--> 00:19:56

condolence as a sign of sharing the grief with the Prophet ICSM. When the Prophet learned about this, he told them, stop and refrain. It is not permissible to

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

mourn and wail

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

Rather, it is not permissible to wail and weep with a sound over someone who has died after today. There are many incidents where the Prophet SAW Selim expressed his grief and sorrow.

00:20:18--> 00:20:25

If we know that seven of his own offspring, sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:20:27--> 00:20:58

three of his sons and three of his daughters died in his lifetime. And the seventh daughter, Fatima, he gave her the glad tidings on his deathbed, that she will catch up with him after six months. What kind of grief you could imagine, be in this huge, big heart of someone like the Prophet dialysis, with all these calamities with all these problems around him, and the challenges,

00:21:00--> 00:21:17

if any one of us would have had 1% of what he had suffered Wallahi we would have died years and years ago, but not the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, who was content with Allah's decree, and who only relied trusted

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

and depended upon Allah alone.
