Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was off he he woman wena. Brothers and sisters in Islam Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

And all those who are watching on facebook live today said Mr. Aleikum to all my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:00:27--> 00:00:29

We left off last week

00:00:30--> 00:00:54

in the story of the biography, the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we left off at the death of Abraham. Remember, Abraham was the man, the king, who was in Yemen. He took over in Yemen, originally from Ethiopia, who tried to destroy the Kaaba with the elephant.

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

That was the year in which Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rasulillah he was born.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

After the death of Abraham,

00:01:06--> 00:01:25

we're going back to Yemen I just want to tell you what happened there inshallah. And then we'll return back to the life in Mecca and the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Today, we're going to learn about the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Say sallallahu wasallam every time you hear.

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

Back in Yemen,

00:01:30--> 00:01:34

there was a man who was from the Arabs of Yemen.

00:01:36--> 00:01:52

You don't need to know his name. I can say 100 names, you're not gonna remember him. So he was just an Arab from among the Arabs of Yemen originally remember that the Ethiopians have taken over Yemen. And this man wanted to return the kingdom back to the Arabs, the original Arabs of Yemen.

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

So he went

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

to Caesar, the Roman

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

to help him fight

00:02:04--> 00:02:15

the Ethiopians of Yemen. But remember, the Ethiopians are Christian. And Caesar refused to help him because he was a Christian as well.

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

So he went to an Arab Li, who lived in Iraq, near Persia, in modern day Iran.

00:02:24--> 00:02:30

And the king of Persia, we call him kisara. In English, you can say

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

Cyrus,

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

or you can say

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

some other names the emperor of Persia.

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

Anyway, the Persians were full of arrogance. And they were truly the superpower of the world that time.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

And Excel is something amazing about them.

00:02:55--> 00:03:03

He went to this Arab man, and he saw help from the Persians through this Arab Li who lived in Iraq.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

When he entered,

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

there was a curtain

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

that covered the throne of the Emperor, the king of Persia.

00:03:16--> 00:03:20

Curtain that had occurred in which covered the throne. People entered,

00:03:21--> 00:03:30

they waited. And this is how they did it. When the curtain opened up. before their eyes, they saw the king of Persia sitting on his throne.

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

And I'm going to describe how they used to sit on their throne.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

There was a crown

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

the Persians

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

if you've ever watched the movie 300

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

they've watched the movie 300 long time ago.

00:03:46--> 00:03:56

It's not far off from what they've shown you about the Persians. They were pretty extreme and bizarre and the way they looked in the way they came in on their thrones, it's it's not too much of an exaggeration.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

relation to the Persians, to be honest.

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

They had a crown that was made of pure gold, filled with pearls and jewels. It was so massive, huge. It weighed over 500 kilos.

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

500 kilograms, and hung from the roof with a golden chain all the way down.

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

Just where the head of the king was,

00:04:28--> 00:04:35

is because so big you can put on your head. It's impossible. But it has to be some magnificent, crazy thing, right?

00:04:37--> 00:04:57

And what happened was that the king would sit on his throne and put his head under the crown. So it looks like the crowns on his head but it's really hanging above a massive crown. And then you open that curtain and there before you see before your eyes that bizarre scene. The king of Persia with this massive crown above it was 500 kilos of soap

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

and everybody has

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

To make such that they had to go down to the ground, bouncing on the floor, put the head on the floor team.

00:05:06--> 00:05:20

This Eric man from Yemen, he didn't really bow he just nodded his head. And the king of Persia became infuriated. He got up and says, who this person who thinks that is better than me coming into Milan and not bowing his head to me.

00:05:22--> 00:06:04

And he said, shahan cha cha cha King of Kings that used to call the Persians. He said, You know, my, my land has been taken over by the Ethiopians, and my mind's been taken over I, I just forgot to bow and just taken over. And then the king said, Oh, so you want your royalty. I said, help me out, you know, send an army and the Persian king said to him, you know, I've got no business in Yemen. He asked his visitors and they said that, you know, there's nothing in Yemen, why would we go and waste their soldiers on there? So he said, Listen, just take 10,000 pieces of gold or whatever, and, and as a gift from me, because you came here and you're royalty, the guy went out. And he was very

00:06:04--> 00:06:43

depressed. So he started to throw the gold everywhere. This Arab man has a bit of a tactic and everybody came and took the gold and the king of Persia like that, you know, he, he said, what he throws the gold away, that could be the gold of the king of Persia, this this man must be something different, you know, why would he throw gold? So he called him back? And he said, What's the problem? How could you throw the gold that the king of Persia has given you? And he said, why would I want gold shedinja when I've come from a land, it's mountains and valleys are full of gold. He's lying. But it was a diplomacy, a tactic to make him, you know, greedy. He said mountains full of

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

gold. He asked his visit says we didn't know of Yemen having that. I guess it's worth sending some troops there.

00:06:50--> 00:07:12

So he got some of his prisoners, some of prisoners of war, some or whatever. They were in the prisons, and he said, I'll send these guys out with you. They're good fighters, and he sent upon them to have these commands. So he sent them there to Yemen. They fought off the Ethiopians there, and they annihilated them immediately. Instead of giving Yemen back to the Arabs, the Persians themselves, what did they do?

00:07:14--> 00:07:24

They took over Yemen themselves. And that's the story of how Yemen became ruled by the Persians, they worship the fire and idols.

00:07:27--> 00:08:07

As the years went by, tell me this really interesting story, you really like it? As the years went by, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was born. And then he was raised. I'll come back to the birth of the proxy lesson. But I just want to finish this remarkable story about Yemen, ruled by the Persians, Zoroastrians, they worship the fire, the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam was born, he grew up and he became the messenger, you will know the story when he received the call, and he became the messenger. And then he migrated to Medina after the hegira all the way, then I'm taking you fast forward a little bit now into the future. He went to Medina, and he became the Prophet of Allah. And

00:08:08--> 00:08:17

he sent out the letters. Remember, he sent out the letters to the kings of the world, calling them inviting them to Islam if they wish.

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

Otherwise, there's peace between them and trying to create peace and prosperity or inviting them to Islam to save them.

00:08:26--> 00:09:09

And when the letter reached the king of Persia, that King, that same king who was infuriated why people that are upset about him, he ripped up his letter, throw it on the ground, stepped on it says, How could this man invite me to his religion and man from the Bedouin Arabs, who, for us was a Los Alamos in a bedroom, but that's what he called him from behind Katelyn, and feces and, and and, you know, just primitive people in the sand coming, telling the King of Kings to go and embraces religion and under his command. So he sent a letter to the king of Yemen, the one who was now in Yemen, right? He said to him, send someone to grab to bring me this man, Mohammed, and bow before me

00:09:09--> 00:09:45

later. So this king of Yemen who had taken over the Persian have taken over Yemen, he sent one messenger one men in your life to kill the messengers, right? But these guys they sent off the messenger, one with no troops, no soldiers, because they wanted to show them that we'll send you one man is tough enough. We're not afraid of any of you. sent the messenger to Mohammed Salatu was sent him He says, I come from the king of Yemen, the Persian from a letter from the king of Persia himself, the shotgun shot to tell you to give in, come with me and surrender to the king, the emperor of Persian

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

otherwise will bring an army and annihilate all your Arabs once and for all.

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam do? He looked up at him in all calmness and said

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

you know

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

The problem is, your king has just died.

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

What are you talking about?

00:10:10--> 00:10:52

Persia to modern day Saudi Arabia to Mecca to Medina. You need months months of journey that they didn't have airplanes or cars or ships that sailed through the sea to get there because it's all desert. You need months to get there, from Yemen to Mecca and Medina, again, another three, four months. How could the news have reached him? He said, your king has died. He's already talking about the king hasn't died. It's possible for you to know this. You're just making it up. He said, Listen, go back to your king of Yemen. And if I'm not telling the truth, we will come and surrender. He said, How do you know this? And he looked at him and said, and why?

00:10:55--> 00:10:55

And watching

00:10:57--> 00:11:00

a messenger from the heavens, comes to me

00:11:01--> 00:11:06

gibreel Allah, his center, and I am a messenger of Allah.

00:11:07--> 00:11:19

This messenger says, Is this what you want me to tell the king of Persia says, yes, you come to him surrendering. It's not true. Sidious. So he went back to the king of Yemen, and told him this is what this man Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is saying.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

He sent a letter to the king of Persia, he said, I'll get the information, I'm supposed to be the first one to find out.

00:11:27--> 00:11:38

And after about two months of journey, they came back from Persia to Yemen. And they said to him, on this date, at this time,

00:11:39--> 00:11:43

the king of Persia died, and he was the uncle of the king of Yemen.

00:11:45--> 00:12:02

He looks at the lira, oh my god, same time, same day, same date, when the messenger was at Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And the king of Yemen who was the Persian said, One law, it is impossible for anyone to know this information.

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

It has to be a prophet of God.

00:12:06--> 00:12:29

And he embraced Islam and the entire Yemen Persians embraced Islam, and all of Yemen became Muslim. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a letter and appointed him said, confirmed his position to stay the ruler of Yemen. He died, his son took over and was assassin and confirmed his position, and they stayed.

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

And that's how Yemen became another

00:12:35--> 00:13:03

land that is preferred by the prophet sallallahu sallam, until today. Yemen is considered one of the Muslim countries from the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So that's the story there. And now brothers and sisters, we've had enough of international countries. We are now going to come down back to our hometown in Mecca. And talk about the story of the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and take off from

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

the great,

00:13:12--> 00:13:28

great, great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Great, great, great three great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. His name was qusai IGNOU killer.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

This man who saved nuclear lab

00:13:34--> 00:13:40

was one of the offsprings the lineage from the lineage of Prophet Ismail alayhis salaam.

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

Samira Salah, the one that was put to slaughter in the miraculous story.

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

This man consigned hypno keylab.

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

He is the one who took back MCE into the rule, and governing of koresh.

00:14:05--> 00:14:23

Porush later on was named after one of his siblings after one of his offsprings, he fought off. The people of who's out remember, Jose are the ones who took over hundreds of years back from his marriage, people the from the original Arabs.

00:14:24--> 00:14:52

He took it from them and put it back into the hands of the original Arabs that came from Israel and Benny Jerome, which later on became koresh. There's a long story to how Poseidon Okinawa took over from Hosea. But in summary, they had a war they had a battle. They had a big fight. And

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

the they looked at each other and thought it's cousins killing cousins, relatives killing relatives. They all came from you know,

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

My grandfather's were brothers. So they stopped the war and thought, let's ask the sorcerer isn't the fortune tellers what they think remember, fortune tellers had a big name after that? And they said to them, Listen.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

Now, not the fortune teller, sorry, Is this it? Let's ask the scribes who they used to respect in the land.

00:15:19--> 00:15:27

And they said, We will ask them and whatever they say, we agree on a judge, and whatever they say, we will all agree to it.

00:15:29--> 00:15:36

And so the ruling came from the judges, those scribes, the scholars of this, they said, the original people were Ben

00:15:37--> 00:15:51

Carson crusade comes from their lineage, everything of Makkah, its waters, its key to the Kaaba, its houses its Earth, its soil, the kiswa that's over the Kaaba, everything

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

goes back

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

to pass a bill Caleb's people

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

to college.

00:16:01--> 00:16:14

And so my brother and sisters, the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu, Sallam Porush, they are the ones who now are the custodians of the Kaaba and everything surrounding it, the heart on the whole of Africa.

00:16:16--> 00:16:42

Among the things which they took was something called data network, data network. Hussein, okay, now, he made this special whole this special place where they used together, they used to have their weddings, they used to have their council there. They used to have functions they used to bring the leaders needs to talk stuff and decide things, the governing things he made that the great great grandfather of a profit center, and that

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

was the second most important landmark

00:16:47--> 00:16:57

of the Arabs that brought them shut off honor, honor. The first was the carta. And the second was Darrow and network, the house of counsel.

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

It's like the Parliament House of the Arabs.

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

So became the honor.

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

This Darryl najwa became such an honor

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

that

00:17:13--> 00:17:16

one of the children of crusade he was in charge of it, who was given it.

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

And later on

00:17:20--> 00:17:29

one of his other children. He was a drunk who was drinking a lot. He was an alcoholic. Another man came along and he bought down a network often.

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

He bought it and he said, How much do you want for and the drunk guy was drunk. He said, I'll buy it off you for a bottle of wine.

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

So we sold him got another for a bottle of wine, they signed contract, the guy was drunk. Because he signed the contracts. There was no other way of returning. And so Darryl, nada.

00:17:47--> 00:18:12

It stayed with this man. And his name was Hakeem Abner who's an if you want to know his name, he had done all the way. After the death of the Prophet, Salah Salem was still in his family. And then he lived on this man, after the whole affair, all the way down to the halifa by the name of Malia ignore, aka Sophia lohana. And on that day, he sold data network to some other guy for 100,000 dinars.

00:18:14--> 00:18:29

And when he got upset about that, it comes up to Hakeem and he says to him, what you sold the pride and honor of the Arabs. There are only 100,000 dinars. And Hakeem had embraced Islam was a pious meniscectomy Oh, yeah. I mean,

00:18:31--> 00:19:15

that was the way the Arabs saw their honor. That's gone now. Our honor is in tuck Walla Walla II, I bought it for a bottle of wine. And I sold over 100,000 dinars, and I make you witness this is feast obedient that and he gave it off. So we did that. And it shows us my brothers and sisters in Islam, that the prophets of Allah and he was send them took us away, took us away from tribalism, bloodlines favoritism of Arabs of other Arab Arabs about non Arabs and non Arab Arabs, anybody, no matter what where you're coming from it your privilege and your honor is only in your taqwa only in your taqwa. In a Quran. Allah says, in a kurama command de la he at korakuen, the most honored among

00:19:15--> 00:19:57

you in the sight of a lot of the ones who are mascot fearing. That's your merit, not your clothing, not your designer brands that you wear or have not your car, not your wealth, not your looks, not your bloodline. None of that is your shot off in honor except your taqwa of a law for a lie, and then passed by the prophet sallallahu wasallam. And his companions were sitting there one day, he had dirt all he had like dust, he was dusty, his clothes went the best, and he was hurrying from place to place working really hard. In other words, he didn't have much wealth. He was working for it really hard. And some of the men they looked at him in a sort of like, in a way where they kind

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

of gave him a look that is not very important. And the problem is a lot of a sudden

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

I've noticed it and said to them, one long by Allah

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

noxzema, Allah, Allah,

00:20:07--> 00:20:47

beware for law, he this man who you see dusty, and he looks like he is, you know, struggling to work hard for his own wealth. And he's not important. Do you think one law he could be that that men, if he were to ask a lot for anything against any of you or anybody, Allah would surely give him exactly what he wants, meaning he could be a favorite one to a law. And when you have a law, a person was favored by our last panel without us and my brother, sisters Don't ever look down upon anyone, just because of the way they look or whatever, at all, and never judge people in that way. There's a big story about mm hmm, no humble, the great scholar as well. He was like that. inshallah, one day we'll

00:20:47--> 00:21:11

talk about him, talk about his humbleness, and how fame and fortune was nothing demon, like the rest of the scholars, who are the inheritors of the prophets, the scholars are, what are they, the inheritors of the prophets? And if you were to go and look for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, we will the finding, where will you find him? What do we say in the last classes? If you went back in time, 1400 years ago, you're looking for the prophets of Allah.

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

Where would you look?

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

You know, you went look at the you

00:21:19--> 00:21:57

know, you're looking for the province of Alaska and first places you would look in public, you don't know where their outcome is, you don't know where Mecca is. You don't know where exactly everything is, you. You look at where people are gathered. Look at circles of people where they sit in. You look for the poor people. You look for people who look poor, they look ragged, they look poor. They're left alone. That's where you find the province of a lot of us and you'll find them sitting among them among the poor people. He used to say, I used to love sitting among the poor people and he used to say, oh, a lot, a lot of macaroni modificado our lawn the Day of Judgment gathering with

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

the poor ones. There's something about them so Pinilla obviously the poor meaning

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

my brothers and sisters in Islam, let's move on.

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

So you've know Caleb had a son by the name of abdomen F.

00:22:14--> 00:22:31

And another son up to date, and a few other sons, abdomen F is the important one. And Abu Dhabi is second in line, abdomen F. He is the great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

And from abdomen f came the

00:22:40--> 00:22:57

so abdomen f was a great great grandfather, from Abu manuf. Kane, Hashem. Hashem is the great grandfather. I'm sorry. So let's repeat it again. abdomen F is the great great grandfather of the prophets of Allah Silla, followed by the great father of the grandfather, who is Abdul, who is Hashem.

00:22:58--> 00:23:04

And then after Hashem came, Abdul muttalib, who is who is

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

the grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now, abdomen F, this great grandfather of Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:23:15--> 00:23:21

he had a few sons, two of them Hashem, and one and the other one, I will.

00:23:23--> 00:23:27

I'll move on. Now Abdul muttalib El

00:23:28--> 00:23:28

Toro

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

and Luke, Taliban Hashem were brothers.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

Hashem his wife

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

was

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

her name was hella

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

omo shaybah.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

That means Hashem had a son named Shay

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

Hashim died

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

and his brother and looked on him.

00:24:02--> 00:24:26

He went to take his nephew shaver to look after him, but his mother, hella, she refused. She says, My son said, Let me look after him, you're not going to be able to and all that stuff. shaybah grew up a little bit, he was old enough to choose the Arabs time. If you're over seven years old, the boy gets to choose. Say said, Mother. Let me go with my uncle, and muttalib.

00:24:27--> 00:24:44

And so not only took him and he left. He went and carried shaybah on his camel. When he entered Mecca, the people looked at him and they thought that he was his slave is apt.

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

So they called him the abbot of a new column.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

But by the time they found out he was his nephew, the name had already stuck to him, and therefore he was nicknamed Abdul Mukhtar.

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

In the slave of immortality, but his real name is Shiva, the prophets grandfather so although Salah is Abdul is shava, but he was nicknamed the metallic, because the people originally thought he was a talibs his slave, they called him the slave of the slave and looked on it. I've done matale that's not his real name. It's his nickname, and he stuck with him for the rest of his life. So canon law, even the province of Somalia was send them love the word Abdullah because we are the slaves of Allah.

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

Abdul muttalib

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

my brothers and sisters in Islam, this man have done mythology.

00:25:40--> 00:25:46

Okay, I've got a cut again. Brothers and sisters. I'm getting annoyed of this really there's a cop number plate.

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

It was a mistake plate and shala v AP G has blocked the driver. Can you please move your cars out the Lucha

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's move on.

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

Up the muttalib is the prophets grandfather.

00:26:05--> 00:26:15

He had one son named al has of the motto they've had one son named al has. He was the oldest.

00:26:17--> 00:26:17

And

00:26:19--> 00:26:24

he really wanted more sons. The Arabs used to take pride in having lots of sons.

00:26:26--> 00:26:30

And he used to say, oh, Lord, give me more sons give me more sons and he only had that health.

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

And one day

00:26:35--> 00:26:40

of the lotto live he lived. He lived to 100 years approximately. He saw a dream.

00:26:42--> 00:26:55

In the dream for four nights first night, he saw someone coming to him saying off for a diva. Dig deeper. And he said, What is lever?

00:26:56--> 00:27:47

And then he woke up. The second night he saw the same man coming to him in his dreams. He said to him for Barbara. He said what is Barbara? Dig Barbara, what's the third night? The bank countin said dig Alma noona he says what's almost no No, no answer that he had no idea. On the fourth night, the man in his dreams said to him dig Zamzam he said women isms and what isms and nobody knew what isms Emmons it had been covered for what nearly at least 500 what not 500 years has been buried since it's made at a center close to his time really bit after maybe what 2000 years, maybe even 3000.

00:27:51--> 00:28:04

So, when he said what isms in the following words were said to him in his dreams are same in Arabic or for Zamzam. Latin z for Abaddon when

00:28:05--> 00:28:14

the screen hajis an album with a a billion uropathy with done in the natella hora been awesome in Korea.

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

It's a bizarre,

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

bizarre words he said the exam

00:28:24--> 00:28:31

it has never dried out and never will nor will ever thin out. It stays consistent.

00:28:32--> 00:28:41

It can fit it can give. It can give enough water for the largest amount of judge that go to hush

00:28:42--> 00:29:03

and you will find it between the animal's intestines and the blood between blood and animals intestines exactly where the white winged crow will pick in the ground near

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

the colony of ants.

00:29:12--> 00:29:19

So you've got up, took a shovel, took a son and Harith and went around the Kaaba.

00:29:21--> 00:29:29

He's sitting there thinking how am I going to find this intestines blood colony of ants, white winged crow picking.

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

As he was waiting when he saw a group of people that were slaughtering a cow,

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

they slaughtered the cow the blood came out and spilled.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

And then after it spilled, the cow got up. Still, it was a bit alive. It was just the reaction and it walked a distance out of shock. And then it fell at a distance. The Arabs went to it and started to cut the catalog, the intestines

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

feller, as you would do,

00:30:02--> 00:30:12

he said, this is the first time there is the blood. And there's the intestines, but where do I dig? There was probably about 20 meters between them. As he was waiting,

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

he saw

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

a white winged crow

00:30:21--> 00:30:27

come down and pick in the ground, he went towards it, and saw the colony of ants.

00:30:28--> 00:30:43

So the colony of ants and in the middle of the what the the Crow was picking, he said, there it is, he started to dig. Now the Arabs saw him do that. And by the way, that was between the two Gods itself and now remember them, the ones who

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

did the date in front of the Kaaba.

00:30:47--> 00:31:25

It was between them and they think this is a sanctuary. This is a sacred area. Why are you digging there? They came to try and fight him off and I'm upset with Sam Harris firing off some dundrum come anemic, you start firing him up is digging away. It shows the determines it's in the bloodline of the province of Alberta center. Keep in mind his fighting Mr. Furness wrestling each other and of the mythos looking still digging away. It's funny, funny side. He's digging away. They're trying to fight him off. What are you doing? And finally he saw so Panama, he saw the bricks, the circular bricks that the Arabs had built, like the ones you see in a well, very deep.

00:31:27--> 00:31:30

He said Allah, what did he say? He said,

00:31:37--> 00:31:37

he said something

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

that Allah is the Greatest or something like that.

00:31:43--> 00:31:46

Suddenly, the Arab stopped.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

They saw the water gushing out.

00:31:52--> 00:32:29

They said, Let's go partners with you. You know, we're together here go continents. He said, No, this has been given to me by God, Allah, they still believed in Allah river, they worship the idols, not because they believe they were the gods, but because they bought them. It was a channel between them and God, remember, and that's what makes them gods, they still believe in the real God, I still believed in Abraham, I sense religion, but and they knew they knew that they were doing the wrong thing. Deep inside, they knew that wasn't his idols was rubbish. But it became a social thing, a political thing. And you know, when, you know when everybody this is when you get stuck with the

00:32:29--> 00:33:02

social community, and we start getting stuck into the peer pressure, and everybody just follows anything. Allah says when I talk to him, and he said, I could be here and don't follow it blindly that what you do not know. But that's how people are these days. So everybody does it. Everybody jumps, we should jump. Everybody cuts the hair this way, or that we should cut our hair does everybody dresses like this? We should all just like that. Oh, the hijab styles have now changed. Everybody doesn't I might as well do it. You know, we look on Facebook and we see new styles of Muslim looks and everything that people tattoo on last name on a burger. That's cool. Let's, let's

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

do it. Because a lot of people do it. They just an inside of you know, something's wrong with it.

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

So you know, inside of it, something's wrong. That's why they're coming us is that halon?

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

Like, why are you asking if you had that? You ended up doing it anyway.

00:33:16--> 00:33:24

It's panela we do things then we ask, is it halal or haram? And then we try to justify our actions if we get embarrassed. My brothers and sisters in Islam. That's how they were.

00:33:26--> 00:33:44

He refused. So they said, We'll fight over. He said, Hold on, I'll fight. You know, one man came up and said, What's this man Arabs fighting Arabs, let's go to a fortune tell us so on. So this particular fortune teller lived in hiber months away journey. So let's go to her whatever she says will do. So on their way.

00:33:45--> 00:34:07

In the middle of the desert, they ran out of water. The other tribe had water of the Taliban, his small family or clan, they didn't have they ran out of water. And you know, in the desert service, if you run out of water, that's it, you're gonna die. So they sat down and said, Let's dig our graves and get ready for death. As they were sitting there and they looked at it gets up and says what's this?

00:34:09--> 00:34:23

This we don't give up. I'm gonna keep searching, as he's walking around with his camera was sitting. So panela he saw a little bit of water coming out of the ground. So he dug and the water came out the other Arabs Look, they said not again. Then.

00:34:24--> 00:34:25

Again.

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

They came up to him and said,

00:34:33--> 00:34:37

you truly have been favored by law. We're convinced now.

00:34:38--> 00:34:47

zum zum is yours? Let's go back. And so zum zum became to the lineage or the ancestors of the prophets of Allah was in.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

That was the greatest honor, the greatest honor. For all the Arabs Remember we said the Arabs and how did they value each other with their honor, not with wealth and the lessons

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

Honor, and he had the greatest honor. later on became the chief of Qureshi and he was in charge of Zamzam and feeding the project. That was the greatest honor Arabs greatest honor is hospitality.

00:35:15--> 00:35:26

They will fight and kill each other over hospitality. Not because of hospitality, but because that's what they believed was the honor. My honor my Shara.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

I will die and kill for and everybody will know and the son of who

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

doesn't mean anything. But that's how we are. I am the daughter of

00:35:39--> 00:35:49

which explains to us today why some Arabs of the world instead of fighting the name of Islam, name of justice, and the last bandana we say, in the name of my ancestors and my father's.

00:35:51--> 00:36:09

And so what happens is that under that great little group of Arabs fight, they don't get many supporters because he kind of thought you're the best and everybody else is really as your fight. It's your nationality. That's it. But when we make it like we're all brothers and sisters, as a family, everybody comes in, they support each other, they help each other when we're down and oppressed. Anyway, anyway.

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

Abdulmutallab therefore is in charge of Zamzam. And remember he said yeah, Allah give me children.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

And if you give me children, he called out to a lot if you give me children,

00:36:25--> 00:36:31

I will sacrifice if you give me 10 boys, I will sacrifice one of them for you. Okay.

00:36:33--> 00:36:33

He made an oath.

00:36:35--> 00:36:40

And so, a lot did give him he gave him 10 sons. Their names were

00:36:41--> 00:37:02

a lot Bess, and Hamza. They were from a different they were from step grandmother, step grandmother, the half brothers, half uncle's of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Hamza, and Abbess and they were the only ones of his uncle's who converted to Islam. As for the others were Abu Talib.

00:37:04--> 00:37:06

Abu lahab, who was also called Abdullah

00:37:07--> 00:37:09

Abdullah was also half

00:37:10--> 00:37:11

there was a debate.

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

There was also Abdullah who is the father of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:37:18--> 00:37:21

There was also there are

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

and macadam and the health

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

as far as aunties, he had Sophia or the lavon.

00:37:32--> 00:37:52

We will know about Sophia with the vanishing grace Islam. He also had Omar Hakim, Attica, Attica. Maybe she was a Muslim, who may Allah, Allah and Barbara, those were his aunties. Six daughters, 10 sons, 10 uncles, six Auntie's

00:37:54--> 00:38:07

a lot bass and Hamza, half uncles, and later on Hamza, the llama becomes the brother of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. From suckling, from breastfeeding. I told you about that. And

00:38:09--> 00:38:20

now, he has 10 seconds of the look, but it looks and says, I have to fulfill my oath. He didn't forget. 20 years later, he's going to still fulfill his oath, I've got to sacrifice my son,

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

man of his word.

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

So he goes in front of

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

one of the idols, he said,

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

he said, you know, the hunt idol, or the committed Xena the hunk

00:38:38--> 00:38:39

you know, laughing laugh

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

You know, the guy who picked up the lady and did Xena in front of the car, just putting.

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

Okay, we'll forget that happened.

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

So we'll go off.

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

And he brought his son to slaughter him.

00:38:59--> 00:38:59

He's

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

he brought one of his sons. And

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

so then the people kind of said, What are you doing?

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

Don't kill it.

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

He says no, I'm gonna kill him.

00:39:14--> 00:39:23

So yummy. Don't kill him. If you do, it will become a tradition among the arrows in order to do it after Stop, stop, stop, stop. And he said to his son help keep him away from

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

his son to the brink. He brought up the law. Now tell me how we found that it was up to love. You see, a fortune teller told him you got to throw an error. Like which son. They were they had this arrow thing that does spin around and whoever it lands on that's the person and the arrow landed on Abdullah each time 10 times and landed an awful lot. And of the metallic was saying I wish Europe It doesn't mean that anyone but Abdullah anyone but Abdullah I think it was the second youngest because he loved him the most he

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

from Atlanta and Abdullah,

00:40:02--> 00:40:14

so brought up the last battle slowly, people started to stop in and he started to elbow them and kick them away and he wants to he goes, I have to fulfill the oath. I'm a man of my word is my oath. This is my honor.

00:40:15--> 00:40:35

I said, stop me stop. So then some Arabs came and snatched up the law of him, and of the Matata, grabbed him in the knife was in his hand, and it cut his head, his head, it made a scar and below is called Abdullah ash, which means are below with the scar in his head. That was his nickname, and the law says,

00:40:36--> 00:40:42

grabbed his son Put the knife back on him, they started to fire him up, the one lady got up and said yada, yada matale.

00:40:44--> 00:41:02

Please, for the sake of Allah, let's find a solution. We'll go to a fortune teller and ask her about your situation. She says you do it, we'll help you. So they went to another fortune teller and she said, if one of you killed another person by accident, what would the blood money be? They said, We give them 10 camels.

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

She said, Okay, get the error.

00:41:07--> 00:41:14

And put 10 camels and I belong on the other side. Throw the error. Every time the arrow lands and Abdullah

00:41:15--> 00:41:47

add another 10 cows until the arrow goes to the camels. And he did that. For the lion. 10 camels. The arrow landed Abdullah first time he added 20 camels. The arrow landed on the last third time, add another third of camels, 40 calories 50 6070 8090 100 100 cows final the airlander and Abdullah and he slaughtered all these camels In the name of Allah and fit the people with them.

00:41:49--> 00:41:53

And so Abdullah the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

he became

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

the one the second

00:42:01--> 00:42:16

father of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to be put to slaughter. There is a Hadith, I'm not sure. So the site's weak. But the meaning is correct, he said and admit that behind. I am the son of the two who were put to slaughter for the sake of Allah.

00:42:18--> 00:42:27

This man and his father are Buddha, brothers sisters, all of this is really a sign for those coloration Arabs.

00:42:28--> 00:42:36

To see when the Prophet Allah send them is born. They can tell deep inside, that he is a special person. They all knew he's a special person.

00:42:38--> 00:42:48

And so Abdullah, married Amina, bento will help me mean I've been to web is also from to say hypno killer.

00:42:49--> 00:43:15

And she is related to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam his mother from Hashem. When she was a Hashemite and his father was a Hashemite, everybody respected the house, she might that were the most noble and so the province of the law seven was born from two noble families of the law side, and his mother's side, all meeting from bentyl Hashem from casaya.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

The leader, the original leader of koresh,

00:43:20--> 00:43:31

and I've been to her from her mother's side, they lived in Medina in year three. So Abdullah of the Matata took his son of the latonia three, and he married me and I've been to Wahab there.

00:43:33--> 00:43:46

Abdullah Abdullah the father of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was said that he was born in the year 545. And he lived for only and he was only

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

he lived for about

00:43:50--> 00:44:01

40 years. He was 25 years old when he married Amina Amina rhodiola last one was slightly older than him, and she lived up to 47 years of age.

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

They married each other

00:44:06--> 00:44:07

and they returned to Mecca.

00:44:08--> 00:44:35

Six months. A few months later, she became pregnant with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And at about six months pregnancy of the law, his father was going on a trade to usher in modern day Syria and the lights on his way back. His father died are Billa father crops a lot of them died.

00:44:36--> 00:44:42

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became an orphan before he was born.

00:44:44--> 00:44:57

He was orphaned before he was born. And that is why you've seen the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He had a strong affection among the highest affection for the orphans

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

and he died

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

Before his death in a few years, constantly reminding the people about the orphans and the loss and death verses of the Quran in respect to the orphans, the prophets, Allah silan himself was an orphan, and it takes an orphan to understand the plight of orphans.

00:45:17--> 00:45:20

Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was born.

00:45:21--> 00:45:42

However, before his birth, it is said that Amina been to work. When she was pregnant. She saw a dream, she saw a dream that a light was coming out of her belly. And it went all across America across the Arabian Peninsula, all the way to Busan in Iraq, past a sham all the way to Iraq.

00:45:44--> 00:45:46

And she saw someone in her dream saying,

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

saying,

00:45:49--> 00:45:52

I seek refuge in Allah The only

00:45:53--> 00:46:18

from the harm of anyone who is jealous. Oh, whoo, hoo, hoo hoo be learning. Well, I mean, Sheree currently has it. I seek refuge in a law for my son from every jealous envious person. And so she woke up. And then once a woman named Baraka,

00:46:19--> 00:46:21

how much time do we have for the mother?

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

But I'll tell you live about Baraka is really nice. This woman Baraka, hands up,

00:46:31--> 00:46:31

anyone,

00:46:32--> 00:46:33

amen.

00:46:35--> 00:46:39

Amen. Amen. A few hands Baraka. What about Romania?

00:46:41--> 00:46:49

It's the same person. But I can imagine she was later on named Omar Iman anyway, this woman Baraka, I have to tell you some things about it.

00:46:50--> 00:47:08

At that time, at that time, when when Amina was pregnant, Baraka was a teenager, maybe 14 years old, to 16. She was an Ethiopian woman. Her lineage is unknown. We don't know her father. She was a child of war.

00:47:09--> 00:47:22

And the enemies took her and sold her in the market as a slave. Abdullah, the father of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He bought her as a slave, so she was a slave of our beloved. Some say she was a slave of Amman, and she gave it Abdullah

00:47:23--> 00:47:32

Abdullah Heder as a slave and he treated her like his own daughter. So she loved the family of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and really treated him as if she was the daughter.

00:47:34--> 00:47:38

She had distinct she was a very positive person, a good counsel.

00:47:39--> 00:48:12

She couldn't read or write. She didn't know Arabic that well, but they had the brain of a compassionate, empathy empathic, empathetic person who actually was an empath. So she always felt for other people, and was able to give the proper counseling to make you calm down and feel good about yourself. When Amina had this dream, the first person she went to was Baraka, because she was very trustworthy, she can find him. She said to her, yeah, Baraka, this is what I saw in my dreams. And Baraka said to her, will La Jolla, Amina will la he,

00:48:13--> 00:48:18

he is not an ordinary son. Allah is gonna give you something special.

00:48:20--> 00:48:29

He's blessed this child and me in a civil law he hears in my dreams, I saw this and I saw that, but I said I'll never leave.

00:48:30--> 00:48:36

She looked after her. And the day came, when the birth of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:48:38--> 00:48:48

became a reality. It is said, I want you listen carefully to this we only have a few minutes. It is said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born

00:48:49--> 00:48:54

on the 12th of Robbie on oh one in the year of the elephant.

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

About 50 days

00:48:59--> 00:49:03

after the elephant Episode 50 days after

00:49:05--> 00:49:11

robiola one is no difference of opinion about he was born on a Monday.

00:49:12--> 00:49:59

No difference about however the day we don't know. Some say was the second Some say the ninth Some say the 16th. Some say the 23rd. And some say the 12th majority say 12. But Mark my words. Nobody knows when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was specifically born. And anyone who tells you that doesn't know. There is no evidence no source at all. Not from the greatest scholars to the modern scholars of the past or present. Nobody can pinpoint the exact date. And this shows us that neither the companions nor the tab me nor the people who came after him. were really concerned about the specific date of birth of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or anyone for that matter. And they didn't

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

have this

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

celebration of birthdays and things like that.

00:50:03--> 00:50:18

If it was so important, we would know the exact date of the birth of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But there's nothing wrong with reminding about the spirit of the promise of our son and his greatness around that time in our world. Nothing wrong with

00:50:20--> 00:50:55

my brothers and sisters in Islam. I'm going to have to tell you some stories and then disappointment. Number one, it is said that Hassan hypnotherapy to the power of the process of law seven when he said I was seven years old, I was in Medina. And I heard one of the Jewish scribes stand up on the tower and say, yeah, Masha, who are people of the Jews, the star of the sign of the Prophet has just come up in the sky, it's just shot just shown up, the prophet is born. My brothers and sisters in Islam, the appearance of this style, is not

00:50:56--> 00:51:11

supported by authentic sources, is by weak Hadith may be true, maybe not. The other story. It says that Amina did not feel any pain of pregnancy. That is also something that has no authentic source.

00:51:12--> 00:51:15

It says that he was born circumcised already.

00:51:17--> 00:51:26

That is a hadith which is I looked it up the most they say it's weak majority say it's even more it's just fabricated,

00:51:27--> 00:51:39

was not born circumcised. He's a human being. And that piece of skin that protects you in the fluid when you're in your mother's womb, and he is also one of those children who were born of a physical human body.

00:51:40--> 00:52:25

But with some specialties. It says that he was born with his umbilical umbilical cord already cut. Again, another fabricated Hadith, there are authentic Hadees that later on Baraka or someone else, cut the umbilical cord. It is said that he was born with his arms on the floor, he was supporting himself on the on his hands and his, his head was looking up into the into the heavens. That is also my dear brothers and sisters. ahaadeeth, which is in Bihar today and by sunon, Ahmed, but the great scholars of Hadith say that it is by its weak, we're not really sure about that. But nevertheless, my brothers and sisters, this is not what makes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam great, what

00:52:25--> 00:52:29

makes him great civilized is what happens next in his life. His mission

00:52:30--> 00:52:53

is Sierra, his character. Allah says we're in Mecca, Allahu lowchen, NaVi and obviously there are other miracles that happen in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But I have to disappoint you a bit to say this there is one more disappointment. And that is there is this famous narrations that when the prophet SAW Selim was born, the palace, the pillars on the Palace of kisana, the emperor of Persia shook

00:52:54--> 00:52:57

14 pillars, they say they shook and almost fell.

00:52:59--> 00:53:03

And he asked the fortune tellers, what's this? And they said, it's the birth of the new prophet that the Jews have been talking about.

00:53:05--> 00:53:15

And then, so this is also another week or fabricated narration. However, kiss Ron, he said

00:53:18--> 00:53:22

to the fortune tellers, what's the matter with this profit and they said, This profit is going to take over your kingdom.

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

His people are going to take over your kingdom is going to be Islamic.

00:53:28--> 00:53:44

And he said when they told him after 14 kings have passed, and he thought 14 Kings that's easy, man, and that's hundreds of years old away. And so Panama. It is stated here in the history books authentically, that within the next four years

00:53:45--> 00:53:54

10 Kings died kill each other, and 10 Kings took over the Persian kingdoms of Panama.

00:53:56--> 00:53:58

My brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:54:00--> 00:54:06

Baraka, the woman have finished it off with this was the first human being

00:54:07--> 00:54:11

to touch the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:54:12--> 00:54:15

She was the witness the wife, the midwife.

00:54:17--> 00:54:59

She was going with Amina on a travel. And then Amina got weak and she sat in the middle of nama. And Baraka helped deliver the baby, as I said, was about 16 years old or so. Or 14 and she helped deliver the baby. She is the one that grabbed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She is the one who covered him. And she is the one who gave him to his mother Amina. When she gave birth. Baraka brought the alarm on her. Baraka is one of the women of promised paradise and insha Allah in our next class next week, we will talk about Baraka, a little bit more

00:55:00--> 00:55:38

Because there's a bit of a story to her. We're still gonna see what happened in the childhood of the province of Alaska and how he was went to the witness Halima to Saudi and in Medina and all the Morocco, maracas miraculous things that happened to him in Medina also the death of his mother and mean been to work and the story of Baraka at that time. The reaction of the province of Assam is quite emotional actually. And then inshallah we'll talk about the childhood and upbringing of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam until he

00:55:39--> 00:55:41

became a profitable Ma.

00:55:42--> 00:55:49

That's next week just pay for listening. How that was all alone has been Mohammed. While earlier Sakurajima Ian was Salam aleikum wa

00:56:06--> 00:56:07

still recording
