smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while Allah He was so happy women were their brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
To all our brothers and sisters around the world, said, Mr. Lee, come to you all, Well, welcome to Part 12 of the cedar, the life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Last week, in the last 10 minutes,
we spoke about
the conversion of Hamza or the Allahu anhu into Islam. Now, I'm sure that the majority of you already know this story.
But I'd like to highlight one thing about it. And that is that the way hams out of the long run, who embraced Islam was quite unique. It came out of an emotional reaction, an emotional reaction. The emotional reaction was that he wanted he got angry for his nephew, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam went to hell insulted him, a terrible insult, like I had never insulted him before, around the car. So I was humbled along the went. And as you know, he hit a Buddha and said to him, I am on his religion.
Then he walked away is a very respected man who is very strong, very courageous. Nobody wanted to mess with him settle the alarm on.
And that night, he asked the last panel, whether I'm just summarizing
our law. If my nephew is on the truth thing, guide me to his religion, guideline. And if he is not there, let me die tonight. And the next morning, he was still alive, went to his nephew, Mohammed de la sala, the province of La Salle and took the opportunity to explain Islam to him. He did not waste the time. And hamzat of the alarm on embraced Islam on the spot. And the kurush people found out and they said,
the Muslims have not received yet until this point, a greater glory than the conversion of Hamza. Out of all people. Hamza is one of the chiefs. He's a big man, and is a very respected person, as we said, and for him to convert to Islam gave the Muslims that extraordinary power, the courage people who are the enemies, they started to fear.
Fear the Muslims to a certain extent, they would have to be careful before they take their next move. Not only because Hamza Delano was strong, I mean, the courage people can take him on by himself. But because of the position he held, Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who is the brother of Hamza, he is the chief of Bernardo motala boy, Banu Hashim, but he's still a non Muslim. Hamza is another chief he has a big name among Bono Hashem, for him to say a word can influence and affect the entire tribe, which is considered one of the is probably the top tribe in Makkah. So that's why hams are the alarm on whose conversion to Islam was the greatest glory to
them. What this teaches us brothers and sisters in Islam,
anybody embraces Islam, and there is no one better than another. Allah Subhana Allah says there is no preference of an Arab to a non Arab except impiety and taqwa and no preference of any male or female or rich or poor or personal big status or low status. In Islam, we are all equal, like the teeth of cone of the comb as a sort of lesser lesser lamb toward us. However, it is also out of wisdom
to try and
teach and reach Islam to the people of significance and influence of significance, and influence. And here is a trick question. How do you reach them?
If we're going to sit back and start to become rigid in the way we propagate Islam and teach Islam, then we're not going to get anyway. Number one, we cannot hide in a metaphorical cave. We cannot sit back and hide in the mosque.
It has to be an open thing. We cannot hide without communicating with our neighbors.
Or show what we are and our Deen in our workplace as much as we can. It doesn't have to be with talking. A lot of people think that you have to talk and convince people and influence people. Some people get their ego in between their diet and themselves. They think that they want to have power over people to convert them in our character in our honesty in our
dealings is the greatest form of showing people our Deen brothers and sisters in Islam, and especially here in Australia.
I can tell you being raised in Australia, you guys can probably relate to that, that the, the worst thing you can do to the common Ozzie person is just talk and act opposite to your talk. hypocrisy is the worst thing. It's a form of hypocrisy. I'm not saying that someone who doesn't act what they say, is a hypocrite. Obviously giving Dawa and speaking Islam is bigger than all of us. And I don't want anyone to say, Oh, look, anyone who speaks if they don't practice what they say, then I'm not allowed to speak. I myself cannot practice everything in perfection what I speak, but am I going to sit here telling you only what I am good at, and only speak about what I'm good at, then no one will
learn about Islam. I like you Am improving and trying to improve the arrogant person is the one who pushes other people in deliberately system themselves. I don't need to practice the arrogant people, people have ego. But to say that I have
mistakes and I have shortcomings doesn't stop you from speaking about Islam. So for example, if you have a problem with keeping promises all the time, it doesn't stop you from teaching other people about keeping your promises keeping promises in Islam. Right? How can we teach our children when we know that we as parents don't practice everything correctly, but we're trying but doesn't mean you don't teach your children honesty, for example, but you try your best to be a role model. And human beings make mistakes, and we learn through our mistakes. But what I'm trying to say is this. Number one, we shouldn't be ashamed of our Deen. And when I say don't be ashamed, it doesn't mean that we
go out and don't use wisdom.
I'm not ashamed of my dinner, we start shouting and yelling and coming out in a way that puts people off. There are many ways that we can give dollar
one, so I went to a hospital getting into the elevator. And a doctor, who is I noticed from his tag, he is a director of one of the one of the
area's in ICU. And he was a Jewish man with his Jewish beard and the
the locks on the side with the hat and everything.
The integrity and honesty of a person they show
is more important
than the lip service that we have. And one of the most important things is us as Muslims
trying our best even if we disagree, to come to terms on things that we can agree on and put our own opinions aside.
When we say that we cannot take part in this thing or that thing, we are limiting ourselves. The Muslims reached China within a few years after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And we're limiting ourselves and closing ourselves off.
Going into Indiana, for example, Jewish people have two senators in Parliament, why are they able to pass laws for themselves? Did you know that the other day I heard which is true from a rabbi, that by law, they actually have their own right
to pass judgment for people who are married in marriage and divorce. And the court recognizes that we Muslims don't have them.
Why? Because although they don't agree with each other, and a lot of them compete.
When it comes to the overall benefit, the communities benefit. They will have one word one say
what do we do?
Anyway, my brothers and sisters we cannot agree to squat in the fly. So we need to improve on the shoulder shoulders next generation to break those barriers. Have my opinion, your opinion and try to focus on breathing. We are now drowning. We need to breathe. So we're drowning. And we're still talking about whether we can
we're still talking about for example.
What kind of yacht we want to take or what kind of boat we want to take and you're drowning. What you should be thinking about is let's breathe first. Before we start arguing about who's going to have what
my brothers and sisters in Islam, the Muslims will united with one word and hands that have their lavon who was an influence and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not shun any of them away you will see today in sha Allah the Prophet sallallahu wasallam praised and acknowledged and communicated extensively with non Muslims among the enemies and those who are non Muslims who had good character the popular sentiment highlighted immensely. It did not shy away and say for example, these are preferred I'm only I'm not going to say anything good or bad.
them, yes, we acknowledge them. And there's nothing wrong with interacting with them,
and even liking them.
We don't like the disbelief that's in them. But we don't hate them as people
unless they are enemies of you and fighting you. And that's just natural for anybody. If a Muslim fights you, you're going to start hiding them inside of you.
I don't need to sell it's already happening in families, isn't it? by default. So we need to rise above that inshallah God, if you can't change everyone, start by changing yourself as much as you can. So my brothers and sisters in Islam Hamdulillah, the alarm became the string one of the strings of Muslims.
the Quraysh became very disturbed about this.
And they backed off for a little while. And I thought, let's try and come up with some better strategy.
So they approach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, one day with some questions and challenges. They said to him, if you are speaking the truth, then why don't you bring down from the heavens before our eyes? A garden,
a grapevine a garden full of grapes, this is an awkward.
And then they put him with another question. So they didn't wait for the answer, by the way. They put first challenge, bring down a garden of grapes, another man stood up and said, Why don't you? Why don't you bring down a book before our eyes that we can see in the hands of angels, that we can read for ourselves rather than you telling us what you have heard? Bring down a book before so we can see in the hands of angels and other ones stood up and said why don't you bring us the angels themselves that you claim that you've been speaking to let them come before our eyes and show us some miracles? And another one stood up that they're not waiting for the answer. Another one stood
And why don't you bring down rivers so that and fountains that we can use here? Look, Mecca is scarce with water, why don't you bring out water and and let it burst from gushing from Earth? And then another one came up and said, Why don't you bring a law and the angels together so we can see them before our eyes? How are we supposed to believe in you and you don't have these miracles? believe in a God that we can't see.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reacted by not replying to a single challenge or question they said.
And the question is why?
This is in sort of
analogy. In the Quran, where they made these challenges. Why didn't he bring them all these things? He could have asked a lot of all these things he actually did. They themselves are worshipping idols, which they carved with their hands. They believe that they are gods. And yet before their eyes, they never gave them any grape
vines, or fountains of water, or angels coming from the heavens, or books descending upon them from above, or bring God down, then if they don't even speak to you and you see them before your eyes. These people are challenging with something when they have accepted something that is quite ridiculous.
Like when someone says, I don't believe in Islam, I don't believe in religion, but they take star signs, for example, and they read their horoscope. They believe in stuff like that. They believe in superstitions. Some of them they do that.
So they're living less. That's number one. Number two.
The questions that they are posing are not questions to know the answer to these questions in order just to create doubt with other people.
When a person wants to create doubt in your mind, they don't ask you questions to know. They throw a question after question at you just to take you off balance. It's what the light allowed Hamill Muhammad Ali used to do with his opponents, opponents in the boxing drink it through these words not wanting an answer, but just to destroy their self esteem and heat defeat them. Of course, it's a trick.
And it also was as Adam said, How do you know a hypocrite one of his signs or His Signs is that if a horse on the verge of when they come to debate you
if you oppose them in anything, and you corner them, what do they do? This is the sort of a hypocrite. they explode in argumentation. Either they raise their voice in shells. They throw questions after questions, they character assassinate you. For example, look who's speaking, you've done this and you've done that it's beside the point. Or they swear and they yell or they act like a victim and you have no room to even talk. They gather people, they cry and they walk off. What have they done? Cause the sing made chaos.
And so on is the other person this is not held an educational debate happens, or a challenge.
the questions that they're asking is basically just trying to manipulate
and that's what a person does when they don't want the truth. What do they do? If you tell them one thing, they bring up something else? Tell them another thing they'll bring up something else. Tell them the third thing that bring up something else. It's never ending. It is never ending. It's never ending damned if you do damned if you don't.
If the prophets Allah Selim answered and he already answered them in the Quran itself, they had just seen before their eyes something which is a challenge to them already. And that is these few words that I'm telling you, if you do not believe they are from Allah them bring like them Allah said
say if all of the gyms and the inside the human beings in the gyms were together together to bring a book occur and like this one layer to not be Miss Lee, they cannot bring one like one oh cannibalism livongo hero, even if they reached out to the outskirts of the world for all them to help them and bring their supporters they will not be able to bring one like it then it poses the question then bring one like if you'd not believe they could not do that. Then Allah posed another challenge which is less is for to be actually sewer me miss lee bring 10 chapters like it. They couldn't do that were talking to the Arabs of the language. Then he said to be surah Timothy, bring one chapter like
it and the shortest one is in Atlanta, calcofluor Arabic one in national
chapter, one line and a half. They couldn't even do that. A simple challenge they couldn't make another asked me to see God and all that stuff.
Allah, Allah did reply.
And he said to the to the province of LaSalle. And he said, When Subhana Allah be, say, My Lord is the most perfect. Hello, come to enlever Sharon Rasulullah I am nothing but a human like you. Except the only difference is I am a messenger. That's my job.
Whoever wants to believe believes whoever doesn't want to doesn't have to.
And then Allah subhanaw taala did answer more. He said, we brought the signs in the verses as the people of the prophets before asked for. They asked for a she camel that came out of Iraq, we gave it to them. Some of them asked for
miracles of healing the leper and raising the dead we gave them to them. They saw angels walk before their eyes, they saw the ocean split before their eyes, they saw and they saw and they saw. And then Allah said, and behold, if the people asked for a miracle beyond this, and God gives it to them, there is a condition.
Allah says, This is my law on Earth. If you ask a supernatural miracle to show it beyond what I've already shown you, then there is a condition there is a consequence. If you don't believe afterwards, then the rights of
punishing you and destroying you. You have to accept it. And that's what happened to all the people before when the science came to them. And they rejected them. Allah destroyed them. He said, Okay, come back, there's no reason or purpose for you to continue living anymore. Because I've shown you the biggest miracles, if you don't believe in them, there's nothing you can believe in.
And Allah did say and even if we brought them what they are asking for those still not believe, because we gave them even listen, we gave them even bigger than that. And that is a book which they are reading before their eyes which challenges them.
Everything you see around you is a reason to believe in a creator. The fact that you exist is the existence of almost pantalla do we take for granted the miracles before our eyes, the oxygen that we breathe? And Allah says he is able to create the foot the fingerprints that are in your thumbs and fingers and not one is alike than the other? Should we not Allah says look at that as a miracle, or do you take a loss miracles for granted? Maybe a little bit no matter? How many miracles do you belie and they're right before your eyes but because we see them all the time we forget that they are miracles. My brothers and sisters gibreel Allah His salah and said to him, yeah Rasul Allah, we
can give them what you are asking. But if we give them and they do not believe, then they are going to be destroyed.
This is the only condition and then the prophet SAW Selim became afraid. He said, I don't want that to happen because some of them will disbelief. And he said no allama de comida Allah guide my people for they just do not know.
And there is a miracle actually, the moon split, it's in the Quran extra batteries.
After one shot called Palmer, The hour has come near and the moon has split. It seems like a Muslim Buhari that one day they woke up and the moon the full moon was in half, they sort of come home from the east, and the other one was sitting in the West. I'm not gonna go into that too much. And it's not that which we hold on to, to prove the miracle and the truth of Islam, brothers and sisters. It kills me when you see for example, on YouTube, or the internet, people coming up with these ridiculous things. Oh, look, there is the name of Allah in the clouds, CCC share shares. And if you don't share, that means you don't believe in Allah, and people in the millions. A cloud that looks
like a squiggly I mean Arabic is squiggly lines, you can basically make out of anything, the name of a law, anything you like, a Christian can come along and say I can see a cross above it. So therefore, Christ is the truth. This is not what we hold on to. or we found in a tomato, the name of Mohammed, miracle my brothers and sisters, a lot more accuracy. This is our weaknesses, our failure.
When we settle with people laughing at us, bring us this is like a person drowning, and trying to hold on to a straw
straw to breathe to get out of the water.
And hamdulillah we have ample learn knowledge and insha Allah Allah Allah will give us the heat that hamdulillah
we don't need to believe in these little things. Oh, it looks so and so we saw them come out of their grave and like we change them someone was changed from one group to another. He was meant to be a righteous person who has been dead for 10 years and his form is still the same. You see the stuff on YouTube.
Just buried them then then and they and they make up a story about it. There's all these different stories that
my brothers and sisters in Islam we do not follow stuff like that, to prove the truth. The truth is the truth by using things which are evident is common sense logic, the Quran as soon as you don't need to go to all these ridiculous things. One person said to me, we're doing a barbecue, and all of us witness that when we came to spill the ashes. down near the wall, the ashes went up. And before our eyes We saw like the name of a law being written.
This is a sign from a law. This is not the signs of law talked about my brothers and sisters. He says salary him as
a fee unforeseen woman man, we shall show them in the future more of our signs, in the horizons in space and in themselves and things which they did not know. These are not things like this.
A fish with the name of a law written on it makes headlines. We don't go by that.
The signs are law shows is more of what he has created. We have discovered the atom and the neutrons electrons and protons and how they rotate in an anti clockwise motion. We've discovered the Milky Way in the solar system. The Galaxy isn't miton the greatness of a Lost Planet what Allah
and Allah says in the Quran, when I asked her to be in a in a coma Catherine, nobody denies these signs of Allah's existence in his creation, except the ones who were arrogant and full of disbelief. My brothers and sisters in Islam. So they brought these signs and almost pantalla said this is ridiculous. This is not a game where you can just sit there and throw anything.
So that was dealt with and instead the core and kept going and people were embracing Islam without all of this stuff.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, maybe one day we'll do a talk a lecture just on why we can't see online His angels. There isn't a huge reasoning with that, but I would need a whole hour or two hours to explain to insha Allah to Allah or maybe even less. So let's move on. So this one they failed with.
And the Quran referred to iron thermwood the ancestors Arabs that were extinct, they could see the remnants, Allah said in the Quran, look at your ancestors either thermowood we gave them signs and it's written in your scriptures. But you can see their remnants their homes are still there. I had other people who are just outside of Makkah a bit of a distance away. And that's why you see they carved palaces inside of mountains that's over there in the head. And thermowood are the ones who have their palaces in Jordan, they carved in mountains, it's called Petra, if you look it up on the internet on Google image, you can see it a lot tells us why you can see the remnants of those people
still there yet they are extinct. And we told them and we brought them to science per hectare, Allah homi Bhabha, can you see any existence of them yet? Yet we live there science as a warning and as a truth and so on and so forth. So Allah says, Allah doesn't want to do the same thing to you. So fear a lot in return.
Now, I wish I had started to become angrier and angrier. So one day, a group of them they wanted to just teach the prophecy when you can't beat someone. You become a bully. And what do you do you start mocking
them and teasing them and calling them names. So when they the proposal of our solemn was prostrating salute
when there was a puja hell, and Aqua Baba might and obey Allah and few other people that were sitting there. And there was a large
chunk of a large
large intestines of a camel with feces and urine in it and all that stuff. So somebody had slaughtered the camel, and there was all these remains. It's huge, comes in Tesla's huge, it's very heavy.
More than 50 kilos. And
one of them said to the other, we don't know that, hey,
who has the courage to go and grab those intestines. And when Mohammed is prostrating, throw it on top of his head on his back and hit
awkward otherwise is the one that volunteered, said although it you see what happened with him was that they had bullied him as well. Remember the story when they said gun splitting the profits face and prove to us that you are on our side. And now his ego is sort of you know, once you do something wrong, then you say to yourself, Well, I'm an evil person, so I might as well be evil and make that my identity. I'll die upon that, at least I've dealt with some purpose.
And he became worse and worse when you follow people who tell you to do the wrong thing. It starts becoming a habit for you and you enjoy the praise. But really, it's false praise. so awkward, gets up, carries these intestines with his hands and everything, and goes and drops him on the prophets of Allah Hollywood sillens Blissett hit the blood, the past the intestines, the feces all landed on the promise of the last element, the smell, covenant, his whole face and the promise of the last sentence from its heaviness. He couldn't he couldn't lift his head out. So instead, he stayed in his position and kept remembering a loss penalty.
This distinction, the smell, who saw him, our beloved Massoud, our beloved muscle was a slave. And he said I couldn't do anything. And that's true any slave there you can't do anything said I didn't have the power to help the profitable logical center. Otherwise they would have killed me so far. TIMA, his daughter, the lavonne Hazara saw him, she ran and saying the word that abubaker the law needs to say,
beyond law in the killing man, just because it says my lord is a law. She's a beloved Massoud says, I looked at them there was about five or six of them. And they were laughing their heads off. He goes, they were laughing so bad that they sat on the floor with their legs going upwards. And they couldn't hold themselves sitting with their bellies vibrating from the laughter and they were leaning on each other because they couldn't sit that's how much they laughed at the profit and loss in
default. I tried to take it off and clean it off the prompts a lot of sellers had when the professor lasallian got up, he turned to them and lifted his hands up to a lot. At that point. All of them including john McMullen, all of them, they all went quiet and approach the last cell and made a specific diet against each one of them by name. How did he say a lot deal with so and so deal with someone so deal with someone so
now they've got no problem. If they don't believe in God and His message, then they've got nothing to fear. Isn't that right?
It's like when we say for example, look, the Quran talks about those who believe will enter Paradise. Those who choose to disbelieve knowingly, will enter hellfire. And those who never know that alone will deal with them in a special way on the Day of Judgment, we don't know. And some people get upset and we say to them, Listen, it's not you who we hate and it's not you who were the meaning is this belief that we are demeaning that Allah Allah is talking about just telling the truth. Like if I don't believe in something, why should I get upset? Now this person, they, this is not supposed to be afraid. And I went quiet, and I got afraid of the silence. Because deep inside we
said they actually know that is the truth. But it was the arrogance that stops them.
And Abdullah Massoud said in the Battle of better or so every single one of them who was there had been killed. And they were thrown in a world.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, why isn't Allah sending angels to protect the Patil? Assalam for example, why is this happening to him? Well, we said because of salasar some has been sent as a role model for us. And he has to go through all these trials in order to show us how we should be
like up to
a certain has Santa has come to you a perfect example in the Prophet Mohammed salado center. So he went through what all my brothers and sisters in order to teach us.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, he was weak at that time. He did not swear at them. He did not do the same as them.
We don't reply and react the same way they do if they do that.
And Omar says why the hawk Obama j Mercado Salama among the ignorant ignorant ones, the people who are thugs and louts and have no education.
Or the people who are full of errors, they talk to them,
how to sell them, the Muslims used to say, paste paste line up doesn't mean, we don't want the ignorant ones. Or you might say I'm not an ignorant person, we just walk away.
There's no need
to do not wish to make the enemy. But if the enemy presents himself before you and there's no way to go is extend like a lion, be brave, and then walk away, but don't wish to meet the enemy.
go together, get out of your way, there's not what we have been sent to do. My brothers and sisters in Islam, that was the incident of that.
At that point,
Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to make it up to the process and them and he wanted to give him some good news and make him feel a little bit better about himself.
So, one day,
the Amara, the Allahu anhu started to hear about Muslims migrating to Abyssinia, the first migration
and he was confused. Why are they going now this is true, this is tremendous. This is horrendous. And he started getting angrier and angrier.
So he said, You know what, the only decision is to kill this man.
You had a good intention, but wrong act. And the ends don't justify the means.
good intention wrong act. He's thinking unite the people by killing the Messenger of God. That's not the way.
So one day he said,
I wanted to go and drink alcohol, some friends of mine. So we went to the local pub in our days if you like,
He said, as we were going there, there was no alcohol left or wine or so I think it was closed. So he said to get my mind off because he was addicted to it. He said I decided to go to the harana to the cabin.
Maybe and do some time get my mind off. Because as I approached, I saw Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the messenger of a lot praying.
And I thought to myself, This is my opportunity. It was deep in the night.
He had his sword with him. And he goes, I'll approach him and kill him once and for all and run away. Nobody will know who killed him. By myself, there was no one around.
He said, I crept up to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. While he was oblivious, he didn't know that I was behind him.
As I approached,
I started to hear what he was reading.
And what he was reading
was the following.
I heard the prophet SAW a lot while he was in
because I've never given my opportunity to hear him right. That day. I couldn't help but listen.
And he said,
I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
recite these beautiful words from the beginning. So I stopped. And I started to listen, in a deep in the night, no one around.
And that's such a good idea to talk to people when they're alone. I say to some students at school, when they say this person believes me, this person hurts me, I see this. One good idea is take an opportunity when they're alone, approach them and say, send them why they come and say, Hey, can we just Can I talk to you? So yeah, there's no friends around no one to impress. Because everyone look in their nature that they like this, everyone in their nature, even your enemies out there like peace, they don't want trouble. But it's the ego and when people are watching and their reputation, they don't want to talk. So one way is to approach this person by themselves in peace and says to
them, when we talk and more than anything to you know, hon, look, we can fight. I can swear it the same way. But I decided to come and talk and come to an agreement. You respect me and I respect you.
And just you know, don't be afraid of that. I'm not afraid. But it's gone on you know, either we can get suspended. Both of us can get into a fight or something. Or we can talk about and say Let's respect each other and there's nothing between us. Talk about in person listens to you, when there's no reason for them to grow. They're eager.
Someone's angry, don't talk to them when they're angry. You see people around moving them on, don't talk to them wait for another time.
So he heard he's and as he was listening, Homer said, these are the first time that the court entered into my ear properly.
And I thought to myself, wow, this man has is extremely crafty or he has talent.
In the way he formulates his words.
And then as the process ends reciting he reached the part where it says.
And then he said, Sorry, before that he said he crossed his word. They could be words of some great poets that we don't know about. And then he recited one who will be totally shattered in Kadena metal meaning it is not the words of a poet. Do you not believe the process of that sounds reciting? He doesn't know what is behind him. And Allah is having a conversation with Omar. Not directly, almost thinking that an ally is letting him hear that. And that was the thing with Armando velana him in the Quran, it says something after he embraced Islam, Allah would send a verse exactly as he said.
The process is to say Yama, what's wrong? And you say something that Lawson's del something in your in your favor? So he's thinking, maybe he's got these words from poetry, and then he reaches one hour because he shouted, no, it is not the words of poets. Because Wow.
He hit him hard. He said, Okay, well, maybe some soothsayer, you know, fortune teller soothsayers words, the next verse, what is it? What are we communicating?
Now, it's not the words of the soothsayer, that you remember.
Omar's freaking out here. So then he said, Well, maybe he's just making him up from his head. And then Allah said, What verse after that, what else
now, and if he were to make up any words from his own head, we will take his jugular vein and rip out his aorta.
And no one will be able to protect him if he like.
Tom said I was stunned and shocked
because I just sat down and kept listening.
Until the Prophet finished, and I just walked away. I thought what what has just happened to me? And he said, that was the first time the call and actually entered my heart.
The next day, I was I had an arrest, we're meeting and data the outcome sorry, not the outcome data network, the council place. And they were saying
anyone who kills the brings the profit, you know, dead will have 100 camels.
And so Omar became greedy money. So he said, I'm gonna go and kill him forgot all about the Quran. The story is long. I'm sure a lot of you have seen it and have seen the action movie about not the action movie, the film The series, almost series, a lot of you have read about how he became embraced Islam. So the common story, I'll just summarize it, he went to kill the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He took his sword openly said, I'll kill him. And even if it's people kill me back. I'll take it. And if not, then I'll win those cannons. So he went on his way and there was a Muslim by the name of nauheim. He had embraced Islam and secret. And he said, What's wrong with the armor and
mythology and say, fuck, you've got your sword and shield that meant trouble. And Omar, when he said something has to do with he was like Hamza, he went, go back on his word.
And he said, I'm gonna go and kill that man who was divided the people up and so on and so forth. And then No, I thought, What am I going to do? He said, Well, if you're gonna do that, then why don't you start with your own family? And don't be a hypocrite about it. So what do you mean? You said, Your sister, Fatima, and her husband have embraced Islam? Because
they've deserted this then he said, Yeah.
I'm gonna have to go MacArthur, am I gonna go kill Mohammed when my family has embraced it? What are they going to say about Omar? You know, when we that same look after your own backyard.
So he went down to 14 his house. As he knocked the door very heavily. He heard some words like the Quran. And he listened. Before he knocked, he remembered the re citation with Professor Solomon.
And he liked those words, but he was just too angry. Bang the door really harshly in his party, my looked his sister, she saw her brother, and who was there reading the Quran to them Habad will remember we talked about the olana the one who was tortured the most. He was a slave and he was torture the most. And the last person was him to sort of face on the poor guy always pops it and that's what happened with the proper laws and and when someone embraces Islam, the first thing he did was he put a teacher with them, to teach them the Quran and the solid and all that stuff.
What do we do? And I have to say it when someone converts to Islam
What do we do?
We Chuck a celebration of the Kabir and it looks in front of them sees a sea of beards Mashallah, see if he jabs Allahu Akbar and thinks, my God, I'm gliding above the moon flying in the
Where did they all go?
It comes. These poor people converted to Islam.
They've got no family. They've got nowhere
They go, Ramadan comes with a monkey store with no one no one asks about them. Unfortunately, I hate to talk about these negativities. But this is reality brothers and sisters, and we should be aware of them
that these people are responsibility upon our next man, even Zakat is allowed to people who embrace this Islam, of course, because it considers that they're going to have a rough time with their family, they may be disowned, they may be shunned,
which means that they may have financial difficulties. So as a cat is allowed to them, to help them and support them.
Lhasa, Selim talked about the end of time that he said, the Muslims are so many, but they are like the foam of the sea bubbles.
They have no power to do anything. And our room, meaning the West will be empowered. They said, Well, how is this and then the rest of the head is says is because of four habits which they have. And one of those habits is a surrounding skinny muda if they are the quickest to feed the poor, and look after the hungry, this is our trade admins mentality. And Allah gives these people victory today because of these traits.
he sent her Bab hominum hakab, enters Fatima hides the words of the coriander reciting some sort of plot underneath her. And we know the story where he started. He had he had a fight with her and then he punched her husband and then he punched his sister down. He had never touched his sister. Physical abuse is haram in Islam.
He made the blood come out of their nose and mouth. And that's when Omar looked at her and said, Oh, my God, what have I done? I've never hit my sister before.
And he sat down, regretting what he had done.
So he came to apologize to her, she said, Get away from me. So then he said, Give me what you're reading, because you said he will not be able to touch it because you're impure.
Go and have a shower first. If he did, he didn't have he didn't have to tell him to do that. But, you know, obviously, it's the least you can do.
He goes and has a shower and it comes back and husband's watching thinking Hold on a minute, maybe this is a good sign. He reads from sort of bio, and he starts to empties his heart.
Now he starts praising and said, you know, words like this have to be followed. They cannot be words of men, they have to be words of a lot. And and who's hearing him how bad he was hiding. So he comes out, says, Hey, and he goes, are you the one who was reading before your bed? He says, Yes, it's me.
His sister and her husband looking at and thinking is going to clobber him kill him. And her bed said, don't worry. I feel there's good news here. And Omar says, Take me to the Messenger of Allah. First on he calls him a solar law. So he takes him to that outcome. And then he knocks on the door. One of the sahabas looks through the keyhole or through the crack of the door, and he sees
approaches his uncle.
And they go to the cinemas drama.
They will get scared.
Hamza stands up and says, What are you afraid?
Let him in.
If he's come to hurt us or hurt the promise of our solemn we're enough people will kill him and bury him alive if we want to.
And if he's come for good news.
He entered and two big men among the sahabas dragged him along because Amato's massive right? They brought him to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the Prophet peace be upon him was sitting down, he grabs on to the lung from his collar, and pulls him down aggressively. Why? Omar is a man of wrestling.
And the Prophet made him feel how strong he is.
And Omar fell down before the sahabas the Prophet shook him heavily and said when are you going to embrace Islam your homework before Claudia befalls you before catastrophe befalls you from Allah. Now why is he saying that the professor la Selim has made for one of the two homes the Sham
Omar said I'm one of the one of them to embrace Islam. And that's a lot of wisdom on someone with power and might that has influenced to embrace Islam.
Allah, so I'm going to shake that whatever is lifting him and take him off guard and shake it. And that's when Omar said, I bear witness there is only one God knew what His Messenger Muslims said this is the greatest triumph
of the law best says we never felt the glory of Islam until the day when Omar embraced Islam. We've never felt it before like that. What was the first thing he did? He said there are so Lola, let me go out. What do you want to do? Since I want to tell everybody that I've embraced Islam, he was the first one to do that. He goes up to his uncle, Xiao Han and to lead him later on the rest.
Saying I became a Muslim. And they became so angry and disgusted by it and it was terrible for them.
So then he goes and says, Who is the one that's the biggest has the biggest mouth in Makkah, and I there was some guy, he was always backed by a big bat by a gossiper. So who does Omar guru? He goes to the gossiper system, and Islam.
Didn't you know that I had embraced Islam?
He said no. He said, Well, I've embraced Islam because that's good good on you man just walked away slithered away and before you know within an hour, the whole of Makkah found out that Muhammad had become Muslim.
So this is a good time to use gossipers when you are courageous enough and strong enough to if you want to propagate something that has benefited Shall I use the Gospels? That's all I have to do with Muslims these days, don't they? Unfortunately, sometimes if we're not have wisdom, they throw something they throw something a bait, what happens? start burning embassies and churches and stuff a lot are they not talking about the majority of Muslims we're talking about that minority, which met last month Allah guide us on inshallah.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, Omar mahato, comes out, and the kurush people gather against them and they start to fight him in the narration. It says he started fighting them from sun from when he went out approximately LaHood until sunset.
They hit him and hit hit them and finally saw one of their chiefs and he grabbed them put his two fingers in his eyes and said if you don't leave me alone, I'm gonna poke his eyes. Everybody backed off in one of his clan, one of ominous clan. He said, What the hell are you doing you people? Don't you know he belongs to our tribe. If you harm him, then there'll be a tribal war between us leave him alone. And so they left him alone on a hot dog returned. And he said there are so low upon the truth. And they went out it was the first time I've applied my best is the first time that we went out in public as a group. Hamza was in front of us and so as Omar and from Salah Salem in the
middle, and he said we marched towards the Kaaba itself. All the Chase was standing there and not one of them did to approach they said, leave them alone. Any gathering that has Hamza and Ahmad hitting them, no man with any brain will dare to approach leave them and I've learned as best says this is the first time that we prayed in a congregation without fear behind Omar and Hamza and the prophets of Allah Sanam leading us in front of the cup.
The glory of Yani, in terms of political strength, there was no one that could compete with the luevano being that it was in his time that the rich China, Japan of
America, Delano had a different role model and had a different role of marijuana different, a different each one was for a purpose that Allah so fit for them to
my brothers and sisters in Islam, the conversion of Omar had a tremendous effect upon them. And after he had become a Muslim, the Muslim started to be a little bit more courageous and talking, but still the kurush they doubled the stress and the persecution upon the Muslims after that, yes, they were weary of Omar, but they doubled the stress and the persecution upon them.
So what did they do? They went to
and they said to him, Listen, man, we've had enough. This is the last straw if you do not hand over your nephew, and we'll give you Blood Money handy member so we can kill him and do whatever we want. Or the entire of Qureshi is going to boycott you. They're going to boycott you and the entire bundle Hashem abdomen f we're going to boycott the entire people who are related to Mohammed Salah, sell him from his father's side, no one's going to marry from you. No one's going to trade with you. No one's going to eat from your food. No one's going to socialize with you. You're going to be completely boycott it. This has never happened in the Arab world. And I will totally upset to them.
Do whatever you want. boycott everything. I will not stop protecting my nephew, obviously is not protecting because of Dean, we said is protecting him because of pride of lineage. And I will tell him himself said no, no, no, actually, I volunteered to leave. He took all of bento Hashem, and they left maca. And they went outside and took a little valley which they called Shabbat I will call it the section of obatala till today they called it that way. And they set the pan and lobbying boycotted my brothers and sisters for the next two to three years. And in fact that was an interest of the Chiefs got together and they wrote a deal a pact between them. In that deal. They said no one
will deal interact, socialized trade with Mary from in any shape way or form with ventilation and all the LR is anyone who supports Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam all of them signed to it, they sealed it and they read on top bismack Allah home in your name of Allah because they believed in Allah, but they may partners with
And they put it inside of the Kaaba locked up and no one was allowed to go against it. For the next two to three years, the Muslims suffered the most suffering along with them with their cousins and relatives. Abdullah Abdullah Massoud, and I've been our best sorry, because the slave stayed in Mecca. It was only the fantasies of the seller. They said, We used to eat leaves and shrubs like the way goats and camels ate. And we used to survive on whatever water from the rain that came down to us. A lot of us some of us attracted diseases, some has died from hunger, and a lot of our buses, that when we went to relieve ourselves to defecate, our deification, was like that of what you see
in goats and sheep, just little bits. We were sick for two to three years and we survived on food that someone had secretly brought to us.
As time passed, there were groups of men that were related to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, or related to herbal piety about related to them from their mother's side.
One of them was Hakeem ignore his that his arm and Mutallab know it. They were actually really there were non Muslims at the time. But there were good people. There were good people. And the problem was enemies to praise them. One of them was Mohammed Nadi. He never embraced Islam and he died before the era of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about this non Muslim community, he said, When Battle of butter happened, I just wanna illustrate something important to you, when the Battle of butter happened. And he took those captives from a bottle of butter, as you know, and he said, you know, anyone who can ransom them, I will release
them. And anyone who can teach 10 Muslims how to read and write, I will also freedom the problem that I said, I made a statement that time after the death of this non Muslim metallic Nadi. He said, If makovan daddy was still alive today, and he asked me to release all the prisoners and send them to Mecca for free. He said, Well, I would have done so just for him. And he is an enemy is a non Muslim isn't he's on the side of kurush enemies. And what this teaches his brothers and sisters is we should acknowledge
people among the non Muslims who support Muslims, there's nothing wrong with that, and work together with them on a common cause. There's nothing wrong with that. We've already spoken about this also, in the third or fourth lecture, which I gave when a prophet Salah Salem said if I were to be called by the non Muslims into this pact of of helping the weak and the poor, and so on and so forth, I would take part I would take part with them.
When we take part in things and you say on some television, that they are helping the ambulances, they're helping the children hospital, they're helping this cause or that cause What's wrong with it? how's it gonna serve against us? It's only in our favor, my brothers and sisters. And I may say something that may be controversial to some of you, I don't know if you're going to go against me a lot. And but I'll say it, maybe this is my opinion that I agree with some scholars about this, you know, to vote, to vote, and to have a say in Parliament. I know that it is upon democracy or whatever other than Allah, but we are living here and they've given us justice and peace to practice
our Deen. If you want to make a change, then seriously will not be the only reality and practicality is to use the system that we live upon. Vote for things that benefit the Muslims. What's wrong with that?
They have given you the opportunity to work through the system for the benefit of your own community. Why not use it? Why
Rasulullah saw Selim sent
the Muslims 83 men and 18 women to a senior and what did he say to them? He said go they're away from your family and even I'm here in the Messenger of Allah is in Mecca. And he says to them go there. Why? Because he said, Listen to the words my brothers and sisters, and Najafi, the Abyssinian king, he does not tolerate injustice, and his people are good. One law he did not say anything other than that.
He didn't say go there because Christianity is there. He didn't say go there because they rule by other than Allah. He knew they didn't rule by the system. He knew they weren't ruling by the court. And he sort of saw us as enemies in Makkah. And he didn't tell them to stay because the Messenger of Allah is here.
And if the Messenger of Allah was here, and he lived in a place of persecution, he will tell you go to a safe place where you can practice your deen.
He said to them go only for one reason. He is just he is fair. He system is justice. And they allow you to practice your deen.
So they went to apocynin. And you know what's really strange to Panama? In all the history books that I read and looked very hard. I could not find some kind of law that the Muslims actually even gave Dawa.
It's not there. Maybe they did. Maybe they didn't I don't know. But it's not emphasized that they gave Dawa.
The people of Ethiopia, the only one embrace the stand that we have is a Natasha himself embrace the slam the secret know that they overthrow the government, nor do they tell them go and establish Sharia over there.
And do you know how long they live there for more than 10 years, 13 years, some of them guide them, even after the history of the professor sent him to Medina. Some of them stayed there for a little while. And even after that, the professor said, I've never said to them overthrow the government. Why? Because the lineage actually the government of Ethiopia, they are the ones who gave them asylum.
And they gave them justice, and they allow them to worship in their own way. Islam is the only religion in our Sharia law, that gives the right to Christians and Jews and even non Muslims of others, according the majority of the scholars, they are allowed to their own human municipality inside of the shadow government inside of an Islamic State, to have their own Christian courts to rule by their own Christian Bible, by their own Torah, by their own system. And if there is a dispute between the Muslim and anonymously, they go to the Muslim court.
To get one this is tolerancing is the only way harmony and surviving Muslims. And if I were to say to you that Islam came out to destroy, and to not allow the golfer to live among us, then I would say to you, the coptics of ages would have been the first their mere existence over there is evidence they survive. They were there before Mohammed, Salah, Salah, very old civilization, the coptics, and they stayed there, and Islam spread and reached Egypt and gave them their rights.
We don't do what they do. We're here for almost Pantheon. And Allah has brought us a law and this is what we follow. There's nothing wrong with involving yourself in voting for the benefit of the Muslims or working with people that bring the benefit for the Muslims. As I told you what, like the Jews have a system, the court acknowledges they are allowed to rule by the Torah here in Australia,
of divorces in marriage and then have to go to the marriage to the family court at all. And the court acknowledges, why can't we do it? You know why? You have to be together, you have to have one word
for each person.
How long to do this. It's comfortable. It's Cofer to do this. This is long gone now. And then I think we're starting to understand that, you know, there is a benefit for us in this what benefit did we get in the past 20 years of say, it's got a vertex cover to be part of it.
We've only gone backwards. Well, not he would have had a say, and a solace and accepted in southern prodibi. Remember the whole day via trading, we're gonna come to that one day, he compromised. Many of the stuff that the Muslims had the right to.
And the sahabas went against him in that in some way. But he looked at the bigger benefit. They were allowed to give Dawa for 20 for 10 years, know what he compromised a lot for the sake of Allah and really, it worked in their benefit. So we have to use our wisdom my brothers and sisters in Islam.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam
he may draw against them that time.
And a loss in the feminine, he said, I will not bring upon them the feminine, the feminine of use of La center.
And that influenced a lot of the non Muslims had some sympathy for the Muslims to get it together. And they said, Let's go to the chiefs of Mecca, and say to them, you know that we disagree with this. So we'll come to the lab. They went there and hamdulillah they broke this, this thing, and the Muslims were released to come back into Mecca. And lastly, I said the process Adam said to his uncle, tell them to go and look at the treaty they made that is inside of the Kaaba, the worm or the termite has eaten from it except for the word bismack. Along they went inside and we're lucky before their eyes, only that word was left. That was one of the miracles that also affected a lot of them.
My brothers and sisters next week is the last lesson before Ramadan. I asked Allah spawn tada to accept it from us. And inshallah we will talk about this rotten mirage. Before the shows that Molo hate was sent Mr. De Caen Vina Mohammed while earlier Sophia Jemaine was so damn it Kumar
