Islam as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We continue where we left off. We are on the journey of the era of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
The hatred of my brothers and sisters, is the date that we Muslims have developed
as a result of
and the hedra
of the province of Los Alamos from Mecca to Medina. The history calendar that we follow is based on that. So we start counting from
approximately the data of the of the hitter or slightly after the proposal our seller got to they got to go back which is right outside of Medina.
Approximately the 12th of rebill Elwin, which is about 12 days after the first month of the Hijri calendar that we follow. Basically, the Muslims clocked it backwards and started from from they went back to our place and said this is they started counting from there. That the first day of Muharram, not 12 days, I'm sorry, they went back to Muharram and continued the following year from maharana maternal into those 12 months.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam that was approximately
after 13 years of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam living in Mecca,
the province of Allah send them at the end of it migrated to Medina, and Islam started to spread.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lift his cousin alioli alone one in Mecca
for only one reason,
so that I
can return the belongings that I maenette the Trust's that people had left with the profits of the Lord while he was selling them as a trust,
almost like a bank reserve.
But except that it doesn't give interest on it or anything like that in any business, basically, a reserve and people this is evidence that the people of Makkah, right up to the point when he did migration, they trusted the prophets of Allah while he was send them with all their belongings. In those days, if you have something, you have money, you have property where you don't know where to keep it in safekeeping, you normally look for someone who is trustworthy, and you lift it with them right up to his migration, even when they're about to when they attempted to kill the Prophet sallallahu wasallam there are still people from the enemies are interesting, the prophets of Allah
send them with their belongings, and he is still taking it to keep up with it. So Panama, the trust is still there.
And that's the thing when you stand firm on a belief,
then people respect you.
There are two types of people they respect they respect the people who stand on true belief, and people who stand on false belief but they stand firmly on it. People respect people who stand on some kind of principle.
But I'm not gonna die Allah causes us to stand firm on that, which is the truth.
And the truth my brothers and sisters in Islam
is the words of a law number one, the creator of the universe once you believe in them,
your loved one who would have migrated
before the Prophet salado center, as the Prophet peace be upon him wouldn't allow anybody to migrate after him he has to be the last one and he had ordered every single one of them to migrate Odin.
At this point, I need to make a very clear
statement and that is
now the hegira the migration. immigrating from Mecca to Medina, for the first time, had become a political obligatory compulsory command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. To his messenger, to say to the Muslims of Mecca, embraced Islam. They must emigrate from Mecca to Medina, there is no excuse.
It became a follow up.
Can anyone tell the difference in follow the iron and follow up cafe. If you've heard of these two, to follow the diet and follow up cafe
must find is a must on every single individual, every single individual and follow the key fire
So the follow up Cafe is when it's compulsory upon members of the community to do it.
If met a few members do it, then the rest are exempted. For example, a funeral pray. If a few members of the community do a funeral prayer, then the rest of them are exempted. If you come to get the Azure you get the rewards from your reward is amazing. It's great. And it's one of the rights of a Muslim against another Muslim, one of the six rights any Muslim has upon another Muslim, whether you know them or don't. One of them is to attend a funeral. And this is a follow up cafe. If members of the community do it, the rest of them are exempted. But if nobody in the community does it, all those who knew about it,
who knew that nobody attended and they could have attended will be seen and they'll share the sin.
So this was for
every individual had to migrate.
Why? Number one, it was the command of a direct command.
And they cannot disavow this messenger. Number two maccha had become a place of persecution. They can no longer practice their religion there. If you are seen to pray, your family interrupts you. They take you away from your family, they imprison you, they tie you up, they persecute you, the slaves were being tortured, sometimes to death.
You cannot openly declare that you're a Muslim or even hint that you're a Muslim. So there's no freedom of Deen anymore.
No freedom of choice.
And the last panel that I had ordered into for me, that there must be freedom of religion.
Allah sit in the corner in a controversial verse today which people it's not a controversial verse But people use it to try and attack Muslims. Allah says quote the new accord to lead akuna fitna una Dino Leela una de la, fight them until there is no more persecution. And religion is for God is for all the meaning of this verse is in context, that the people of Mecca were persecuting the Muslims, not allowing them to freely practice their religion and say in open, they had to do it in private. And if they were no, they were going to be killed. That's the last quote talking about karate No, fight them means a mutual fight. And that verse came down later, when the makin enemies started,
perpetrated the battle and the Battle of better will come to the show in LA in a couple of weeks.
So unless it to them fight them, but for one reason, until there is no more persecution. Nobody could argue with that. No one in this world today can argue that people who fight in order to establish freedom or to buy their freedom or to bring freedom to the people, that they have a right to, nobody will argue with that. Today, they call them freedom fighters.
But Allah said that already in the Quran,
so that there is no more persecution and so that religion is for a lot it means so that people can practice sincerely for a lot and not need to hide it in secrecy, afraid of being seen to pray, for example.
So Allah gave permission that fight back in order for freedom to happen. And somebody might say, Well, what about religion? What if there were Christians or Jews or other religions living in a Muslim state does not apply to them as well. It's going to apply to you that will give you freedom you got to give us freedom? The answer to that is yes. A lot is us to give them the freedom as well.
And history is evidence to that for over 1000, approximately 1200 years, or a little bit more of the when the philosopher the Islamic empire established
that unique leadership that Muslims have, which was destroyed and fell
in the time the Ottoman Empire,
then World War One, it gave
allowance to the non Muslims, especially the Jews and Christians who were living among in the Muslim land, to practice their faith freely, openly. In fact, it is the only religion The only Sharia in the world
never. I don't have any Sharia analysis, except Islam to give them their own municipality, own area for the Christians own area for the Jews, and they may have also addressed other religions as well being allowed based on this their own area.
is governed by the own religion, inside Muslim land inside under the Islamic government
to have their own court system to rule by their Bible and boy, that the wrong whatever religion I followed for their people, and the Muslims will not interfere. In fact, anyone who interferes the Islamic government, penalize them punishes them in prisons, they're not allowed. And anyone who fights them because of their religion, the Islamic government takes up arms against these people. And that is one form of jihad.
Which the media and the people who try to attack Islam and people ignorant don't understand don't know or they deliberately don't say it, they don't address it.
Because obviously those who want to ruin your reputation and make you look bad, they avoid the good stuff. And they focus on the bad men exacerbate it, blow it out of proportion if they weren't.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, persecution, they could not practice their Deen so Allah tada ordered them to migrate. A third reason to emigrate was that it was a clear alternative. What was that?
Medina, Muslims of Medina, the inhabitants of Ensenada and the answer that Austin has was people who were in charge of Medina, were calling the Muslims to come in and guaranteeing them safety and security. Not only that, they will follow them and pledge allegiance to the proximal center and make them their own brothers. So they have a safe place to go and practice their deed, a place where they will guaranteed safety and security and they will not be persecuted because of their religion.
On top of that, Mexico was persecution they couldn't practice their deed. And Allah have commanded, put these together, you come up with for dying for a person who is in the similar situation for a person who is in a similar situation today.
Like that, in that context,
and I've got a bit more to say, inshallah, as we talk about the issue of
the last person on the line, who stayed in Mecca for a further three or four days until he gave back the MNF. The Trust's to do,
to wasn't given it back
to the people of Makkah, who are the enemies, the open enemies,
much detail here, but I think that a lot of people can learn great lessons from that, in applying it today. These are people who are open enemies of the promise of alliances. They have just sent 40 of the people from 40 different tribes to kill the Prophet sallallaahu messenger have a lot. And as a result, he is now a fugitive and run away from them. All those went to run away. Yet the prophet SAW Selim could have kept those trusts which they gave him those enemies and take them for the Muslims to benefit from, but not why. Because the original agreement
before the Posada migrated,
he had an agreement with these people, that he will look after their property and return it. So that nullifies every other agreement afterwards, whatever happens, because the possible SLM said, and not me know now in the surety, delivers, stick to the conditions and the greens.
Unless the agreement has been broken by the other person, whatever the conditions are the terms of the agreement word. If the other party, one of the parties breaks it, than the other the agreements off. But this agreement was not broken. Yes, they will after persecuting Muslims going off to the proxy Law Center. But those people entrusted him with with his wealth. There were no terms like that. There were no terms that but however, if you attacked me and dragged me out of your home, I will take your wealth, there was nothing like that. The original agreement, a trust, keep it in return. So the seller fulfilled it. While he's a fugitive. So Pamela and told to stay back for three
or four days, even though it could have been killed. He could have been persecuted. It's got no protection, yet the trusts have to be returned. A law says no Qur'an in law.
As a matter of fact of law commands. Yeah, Morocco.
Morocco, and to add to Lana Illa.
Allah commands you to give back and fulfill the Trust's to him ever they belong.
He didn't say only to the Muslims, anyone who has the right to that trust, you must fulfill it and give it to them.
That's what Islam is based on my brothers and sisters, even at the times of persecution, unless the terms of the agreement said otherwise. Everybody understand what I'm saying. But
I have a man who then gives back to America. And Mike emigrates, under a domino chooses the main highway. Remember what we said about the province of Nova, they went through the back way, so as not to get caught.
But other than the minor didn't have a bounty on his head.
He went on the highway, which meant that the man was going to reach go back.
Maybe almost at the same time, a few hours later, or maybe a day later after the proxy class and and the rules are set, it took the longer route. So he took another few days, but the learner caught up with them. So they almost found each other at the same time, maybe half a day difference or a day in
the last person that is reported.
I'm sorry, that was reported to have been the last person to emigrate, however, were they still Muslims left back? Yes. Remember, we said the prisons, some of the slaves who had their masters, they they wouldn't let them go.
They couldn't. They couldn't find a way to emigrate. They if they if they tried, but they were caught again. Some of them converted to Islam after the last Allah migrated. What about them?
Well, we're gonna talk about them in a minute. As for the slaves, and those who couldn't leave a last panel, what diala exempted them. In the Quran.
Allah, Allah did say Enlil mustafina, Minerva, and he when he said, Danny, Luna haledon do in a service. Except he said, except the men, women and children who are indeed too feeble, to be able to seek the means of escape, and did not know where to go. Allah said, Buddha, aka Salaam, and Yahoo, I'm home working on a local afford Latina, maybe a large part of these for a lot is all pardoning or forgiving. Allah said, maybe, maybe I said, you see, the font is so strict that even those who could not get out Allah Allah, although he gave me the exemption, he's still added the word maybe. So as people not to take it for granted, although it must mean a data. He guarantees when almost no data
says no for an answer, maybe perhaps, in the hope that it means that almost pantalla will grant it to them. Allah says that he forgives you, for example, he will forgive you.
Maybe he'll forgive it means he will. But he wants you to keep that connection where you don't get into your comfort zone. And just take things for granted. Because you know, some people what they do, we take a lot for granted these they suffered a lot of wood, we try to try a lot of a lot if you give me this, I'll do that. Sometimes we we feel cheated by our last minute, if we ask for $1. And it didn't come the way we wanted it. We look back myself. I spent 10 minutes away from my usual things away from my game from watching TV just to make right you're up and he didn't give me what I wanted. So I lost my dad, I wanted us to take this seriously. The matter is nine years since I lost
my dad, his hands. And your connection with a lot is based on your trust in Him. And that you know that he will only do what's best for you. If it gives it gives it doesn't give it then you know that there is something good to come out of. And there's a reason as allies all wise, all knowing. Anyway, we move on. My brothers and sisters in Islam. There were those who still converted to Islam in there. Some of them tried to escape, but they couldn't. One of them was Abdullah Ignacio hain, probably
his father, so he later on embraces Islam becomes one of the great heroes of Islam, but otherwise also on the great heroes. So hey, he converted to Islam before the Prophet migrated. But his father tracked him, he actually chained him up and kept him inside of a room. And his uncles and relatives would not let him leave. And he is one of those who could not leave until the Battle of butter happened. And he will have to talk about that another time because he had to kind of lie to his dad and ensure alone when that time comes, I would like to address it because there are a few points that are sensitive. When can you lie when you can when Can't you lie?
Because a Muslim, it's hard for them to lie, but in what's stringent circumstances can a person
lie or twist the truth a little bit? Okay, that's a very important point that I need to talk about in a couple of weeks and show a lot. Not now. Because some people misunderstand that they take it for granted. I think that can lie on any circumstance that it's wrong.
Anyway, of the law
So I've stayed in his change and he couldn't get out. Then his brother becomes a Muslim. And he also gets chained up with his brothers. And so how they spend their days and nights in their chains, among a few others, maybe 10 to 15 others who are still my brothers and sisters in Islam. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala began the encouragement of hijra. See how did it happen? First, the Quran started off with a first stage. The Quran doesn't come down in one whole command. You know that right? For example, when I lost my dad forbid alcohol, he didn't forbid alcohol immediately on the first day, he brought it down stage by stage.
In the first couple years or so, last month, Allah said do not approach prayer while you are drunk. In other words, you can drink later on after, after Asia. Hamza, Ilana was one of those who loved his elbow and he was seemed to be drunk at night, and saying some silly things to horses in the night.
They love their elbow. So they came out of snap, but they didn't approach so that while they were drunk, then almost went the other route down the verse. In
addition, beware where the alcohol, intoxicants and gambling and so on, and so forth as learning and gambling, things and,
you know, chance games that are based on making profits by chance and that are impure for you, so avoid them. So now we avoid alcohol, stage by stage. So the my immigration was stage by stage as well. And that's how we're caught. And that's how Islam comes to the people. My brothers and sisters, we need to learn something from that. Sometimes it's fine. Some young people coming out of a family. He's always been for 2025 years of his life, also, not religious, not praying. And his father and mother always reminding him prayer prayer, my son Pray, my daughter has had my daughter, and they've always been rebellious, right? The day comes when they decide to become religious, and
what do they do? They feel this great desire in this great,
immense passion for the deed. And then I want to convert everything about their families in one week, every little thing they say wrong. They want to know tell their father and mother how to do things. They want to be the chef's of the entire family, and he forgets that for 25 years, 22 years, his father, was there pray Where were you? My brother and sisters.
Although Yeah, I'm talking about some families who may not be very well versed about their Deen and then suddenly you go learn your deen and now you find out that some members of your family might not be practicing Deen as good as you anyone, then you want to implement it in a night or two and you get angry and you start being strict, and so on and so forth. I've seen young people do that a lot. So what you need to do, you need to bring things slowly, and be patient with it. Especially people who convert to Islam, they have immense that they require immense patience with their own family, it's not easy to plan a lot. And we also need to be patient with their own family with their own.
people that we love, for the most part data center down in stages, he can't come and say couldn't fire corn right now or nothing stages.
So the Quran said,
migrate. At first it was encouragement, Allah sent down the verse and saw the Hajj and those who emigrate for the cause of a lot and then were killed or died along will surely provide for them a good provision. And indeed it is Allah who is the best that provides. That's these these were among the first verses which Allah said down, encouraging to emigrate in a nice way, saying, if you go, I will give you this, if you go, you will be among that. Then a few. A little while later last month, and I sent tougher words. Now it's getting tougher. A law said.
In the letter, Allah said while taking the songs of those who were engaged in wrongdoing themselves, the angels asked, in what circumstances were you? They replied, We were too weak and helpless in the land, the angel said, was not the earth of Allah wide enough for you to emigrate in it. For such men, the refugees held an evil destination. Indeed, this is uncertain Lisa, this verse came down when those who convert Remember I told you some people still converted in secret in Makkah, remember that one? What happens to them when those who converted in secret in Makkah,
they were too afraid to tell the people their families and people that they are Muslim. Now the fear was not a really well founded fear. It was a fear a type of fear where they were afraid of losing their belongings and their property. They could have emigrated like the wrist, but they weren't courageous enough. And it led them to be so secretive when they had an open to get out and join their brothers. They actually took part in the first battle of butter with the enemies against the profits of the Learning Center.
in secret, and some of them were killed by the Muslims in that in that battle, and some of them escaped. Allah is talking about them. He's saying that on the Day of Judgment, Allah will raise them. And the angels will say to them, you know why? why did why were you on the enemy side what happened and they will say we were weak, and the angels will say to them wasn't a lost land wide enough for you to immigrate in it and seek a place where your strength is there and you can practice your religion and freedom such as Medina.
So the verses came down even tough
because Allah really wants them to leave the place of persecution.
Then another verse came down so Lanka, Buddha, Allah tala said, among people, there are some who say, we believe in Allah. But then such a person is made to endure suffering in a lost cause. he reckons the persecution, he suffers at the hands of people as though it is a chastisement from a lot. But if victory comes from your Lord, the same person will say, we will with you does not know whatever is in the hearts of people of the world. This verse is talking about a few of those Muslims who converted in America and stayed in secret again, they used to say, we can't immigrate, you know, our property. Land our this our that. Right? And I say we are suffering, but almost on the island.
He said, this type of suffering you're going through was not good enough.
About the suffering of that I'm talking about where I exempt you. And when the Muslims you found that they were given victory about something, you would come up and say, yeah, we want to see where we were there were part of you. Allah says you weren't part of them. You were not there.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, these verses seem quite tough and harsh.
And now, I would like to say something that's important for us to learn.
If you just went by these verses alone, we would assume that we are in trouble now. Living in the West, is that correct? We're living in Australia. These verses are quite troublesome for us.
So they're, they're telling us what are you doing? Why didn't you go to Muslim land? Why didn't you get out of their
land? very white? Yeah, kind of, but not exactly.
First of all, the situation in which these verses came down was different to the situation
that we are in now, in some countries of the world today. Yes, the situation is the same.
Or somewhat the same.
For example, I would say in some parts of China, Muslims are persecuted big time, but the world doesn't know about.
I know a friend, one friend that came visit Australia went back Allah is just a very nice man with lovely, beautiful brother. He was caught with a copy of the Quran in his house in China. And they had come out of law that no one's left a copy of the copy.
He was arrested and imprisoned. He's been in prison now. For two years. The mosques no one's allowed to attend. We got reports of Muslims who are forced to eat pork and not fast Ramadan
arrested. This is absurd.
If they have a way out, they must immigrate.
Now, what about us, for example, in Australia and the likes, well,
after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
went to Medina.
And time passed. And then he went and opened. Makkah. You remember from Africa, you know what I'm talking about? You stay with me now. later on. I'm just fast forwarding a little bit when he went back. And in Makkah, Allah gave them back MCE.
About 1011 years later or so.
He was seldom stood up.
And he said
in the Hadith which is inside a Muslim and Buhari lair, his rata battle.
There is no law hegira after the opening of Mecca.
And the word no more hegira here here doesn't mean immigrating anywhere you like loosely. No, he's talking about the actual extra that Allah ordered to go from Mecca to Medina to leave that vision. Because the last month Allah has made that hijra, the greatest reward, and those who did that enter in that time are the best of people.
The best people like Abu Bakr and Omar, Abdullah and the rest who migrate they are the best of people. When the opening of Mecca happened us
Allah told us the reward of that migration is no longer so there's no more that.
That's one. The second point about it is that the command of making it obligatory to migrate from Mecca, Medina has now been abrogated. It's gone, there's no more obligation to go from Mecca to Medina. Why? Because there's no more persecution.
Also, the Muslims are safe. Also the Muslims can live in Mecca or Medina or anywhere in between. Also, the number of Muslims is large. Also the Muslims had established strength.
then after the federal hamaca there is a hadith which is so here inside
we're Sahabi by the name of foodtech.
anyone Put your hands on and see who has heard of foodtech strange name, you heard foodtech have been a long one, he lived in another land. It was a land of ship
But he was safe to practice his religion.
And it was said to him that you must emigrate out of state because the length of check, you have to go to Monday. So four days went to the province of Milan.
And he said to him, You Rasul Allah, I have immigrated because the people are telling me it's an obligation upon me to immigrate, I can't stay in the land, and my people are still on ship getting my land is a land of ship.
straightforward. I think this is black and white for anybody who was asked this question today.
or supervisor Lim said to him
This was sorry after the middle of handbook.
He said yeah, could I
establish your son at a consulate
and pay us Okay, that
was odd unempowered fish.
Stay away from indecent acts. Since as much as you can. Xena and since
and live wherever you wherever you want.
Live wherever you want, go back to if you don't live there if you like.
And you went back to the Buddhist thing.
So the Malema understand from this. If you are not persecuted in the land, and you are able to practice your deen and you can live in an Islamic lifestyle. And there is no fear of fitna on your children on yourself from losing your deen like real fitna, you can have a control over
then you can live there.
However, brothers and sisters, this day and age, we understand that some people have a different opinion on the matter.
It's more ish the head, educational guesses people sit there and then we come up with different opinions. Some families, they are very scared for their children. I'd rather immigrate to somewhere else where they feel that they can be raised in a bitter stomach lifestyle, by all means, go if you can. I lost my dad bless you bless your journey. We're not saying that immigration, you shouldn't do immigration. But what we're saying is not obligatory,
not obligatory, according to this study. And this is the stance that I stand on actually. However, in circumstances, it is better to immigrate.
It is better to emigrate.
certain countries in the world, I don't think there's any country in the world today, which is operating under Islamic Sharia correctly. However, there are certain countries that are more Islamic than others.
nine countries now because this is not a political lecture. However, there are places anywhere you find more comfort for your deen is better to be around. It's better to be around. But then again, my brothers and sisters The question is, the dialogue is important too. And we have a responsibility of the hour so long as we can give it and do it. Okay, so the conditions are you should be able to have an Islamic lifestyle, guarantee that you are not going to be persecuted because of your religion. have freedom of your religion a lifestyle, not obliged to do since not obliged to drink alcohol applies to gambling not obliged to take river obliged by law, not persecuted for any of that and
You are able to pray and do your Zakat and avoid sins and have a Muslim community.
There is no harm in doing that.
And we shouldn't put down people if they choose to do however, every family, every person knows themselves and knows their children. And I do agree there is a slight fear of corruption and so on and so forth affecting our children. This is where your role comes in. As much as you can
muster and the last panda Allah knows best. My brothers and sisters in Islam.
arrives in a place called fullback,
a short distance outside of a few kilometers away.
And he stays there on a Monday
from Monday until Friday morning,
four days approximately.
It builds a little tiny place to pray, which is actually the first mosque maybe the first or the second.
There were the little mosques that were built around. I mean, the Muslims in Medina, they were already praying five times a day. Remember,
Musab no might have gone there to teach them. But they didn't have they didn't have the karma. They didn't have the sooner pray without praying the five daily prayers.
And then we're doing Zuma before the professor Sandy Juma himself because he was running away. couldn't do it.
So obviously they had prayer areas, they have little you can call little mosques. So they were really there.
Publicly we say Tibet is is kind of close to being the first Masjid because the Prophet sallallaahu Selim himself, prayed there first. That's why we say the first Masjid out of respect and honor for the province of us and that that's what he established first on his migration. But if you want to get very technical, then there were already other little, little mosques. Because the shadow is a place that gathers people to pray. So five daily prayers we call it a gentle mosque.
That was funny. Okay.
funny isn't it? I'll get you later.
So what happens next, the Senate bills this little mosque and he prays in it, Colonel, with our worker of the alojado. And then audio Gamal comes in and joins them.
Little incidents happened and there are people from Medina that year about him. Among them was a man named segmen and faricy.
He heard about the slo mo Pedro comes from another time So long story, but he's the gun visit him
when he was still a disbeliever because he had some some signs that he learned from priests, which he used to be Christian, about the signs of the prophet of God. So he was going there to check if he was really the Prophet, which he had learned with.
in Tibet, my brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters spread and then he got up on a Friday morning to go to Medina, in Madeira. In the mean time, there were hundreds and have over probably cut something to a couple of 1000 people that embraced Islam more more, because of the sub domain and the rest. And they were anticipating His coming, some of it was done and we all know the story.
On the on the other side of Medina, there were three neighbors. They were three Jewish tribes. They were called, who can tell you what their names were. Anyone? Jewish tribes, very well known Jewish tribes in our setup.
But another good
12 you will laughing at me before 12 years old now.
I'm not gonna feel guilty punishing you later.
But I'm gonna forgive him because he got it right then another
four either, which is the most common one we hear about
cleaning the car.
Clean. sounds funny.
Those were the Jewish tribes that existed around Medina. in Medina, there was aos and the Arabs. These Jewish tribes. I don't know how they got there. Really, I really don't know. You can read all the history. One is difference of opinions. I don't know how they became
Jews originally not Arabs, but they became Arab. Somehow. They spoke the Arabic language but they kept their lineage and the children of Israel and those two really they used to manipulate
And bully that also has Raj in an indirect way. They used to try and have control over Medina, with the economic power, economic power, money, finances, what they used to do was, they had wealth, and they used to let the Arabs borrow, lend them
in a system called usury. Today, they're given different names, interest, finance, these are just names which are never brought down, but just to make it look nice as to why they're called drugs these days, and angels, dust, bath salt.
What is it speed? Sounds amazing rivals, like tells the young people Wow, speed, you know, ecstasy.
Or something wrong by saying these names, you need to know these are the names they try because they want to trick you in buying them so you can go on corruption, and ruin yourself. So when somebody wants to correct me, they give it nice names. So the media works. Anyway, it's called usury, but they let them borrow something, they've got to repay them more. Not only that, they told them, you've got to leave a security bond, what was the bond, you gotta leave your wives, or your sisters or your daughters with us? If they didn't, except you gotta leave your sons with us. Otherwise, your property with us? It was it was it was oppression. And they also have to fight each other for a
couple of centuries, right. And the Jews took advantage of that, that were around them. And they used to give them weaponry when they ran out and give them resources, but they will charge them interest for it. Don't worry, you can pay it later. And they have control over them in this manner.
Also, they benefited from the cost of continuing to fight because the Jews are waiting for the Prophet, their prophet to come when he ended up being among the Arabs.
That was a shock to them. They didn't want to accept.
However, my brothers and sisters, guess what, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam arrived in Medina, among the first things he did was establish a civil relationship between the Arabs on sod
and those three neighboring Jews. But he had to change some of the conditions and the rules so that they were both on the same playing ground, they were both equal in their rights. No one can oppress the other. So he abolished river usury, for example, and that that infuriated them, there is no more control over that. He also established that if anybody attacks the Jewish neighbors, the Muslims take up arms to defend them, because now they are neighbors, and they were they had an agreement. But the Jews don't have to take up arms to protect the Muslims, if an outside enemy attack their
And they can trade with each other, they can visit each other.
But and they can marry
the Muslim men can marry Muslim Jewish women.
Why not women marrying. There is a reason for that and a wisdom because Allah Subhana Allah has given the man the leadership role in the family. And the children are named after the lineage of a man of the man biologically. So it was taken that if a Muslim woman married a Jewish man, then the children will take the lineage and bloodline of the Jewish families. And in those days, especially, and in many parts of the world today, the man has the upper hand, in property and in family and in leadership and in the last sight. So it could not be accepted to give a Muslim woman to a Jewish man or a Christian man to be led, and have an authority above her. That's how the system was. And so
it's done for now, Allah subhanaw taala allowed also to eat from the food from the food of the Jews and the Christians. It's called kosher. And that is called Hello. When you have say, a holiday sign. It's not what some of the politicians ignorantly say. Or deliberately say, Halloween means what we are allowed to eat and among the food that we are allowed to eat his food which is meat which is which has been slaughtered by Jews, Christians, or Muslims.
We don't even have to find that if they said Bismillah No, we don't have to the fact that we're not a Jew or a Christian or Muslim, slaughtered the make Allah sit in the corner or hinder.
Their food is healthy. So I think it's important for people to know and to emphasize especially here living in Australia to emphasize to the people don't understand Islam that in fact, Islam came to establish good relationships.
Especially with people of other religions, it's a must. And if we're allowed to marry from them, we're allowed to then inherit from us if you marry a Jewish which inherits you, you're allowed to eat from their from their food, trade, take up arms to defend them, but they don't have to take up to defend you. I don't think there is a single civilization in history that I've ever read that did this with people who are of a different religion, are considered to be among the lungs of the enemy somehow, or a threat to beat like on the other side, Islam did that. Francois Selim established that among the first things, now this broke any control that the Jews had, and he had to make them become
equal, equal in the sense of worldly equality, trade and business and land and property. My brothers and sisters in Islam, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered Medina,
he prayed Joomla first Joomla was then so he raised about 1213 1415 16th of Riviera hour, he reached there and prayed his first Joomla ever, just outside of Medina. And what was his first
his first hold about was exactly
two and a half to three minutes long.
I know I know, before you go off on the maps, today, we have a different circumstance these days, people used to attend the mosque all the time there. And it was around knowledge always around motivation. And I mean, here we have this, some people don't even attend tomorrow. But if they do attend to once in a blue moon or some people just every week, so the maps take the opportunity to just extend it and give you a little bit more information and address more things. Because then I'm going to see if the next week and some people that want to see you a level alum except from elite Elite. So I have seen that it's good to extend it a little bit just for the benefit of the community
in our situation. But if there was a closer connection with the mosques and so on, which we haven't come to the net, but on a on average, then the whole purpose should be very short, two minutes, three minutes. The prompts are focused on the following.
He focused on donating to build because obviously they're in a state of building now building the mosque, and the community, building the community. Pray, he said do not
leave your prayer. If you leave your prayer, your hearts will be hardened.
Stick to the soul that did not get tired of God and
you have to establish your connection with the last minute. Love one another. Love one another. In the love of Allah. Don't love one another for money or for property love one another for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah.
Allah does not like those who break their promises to a lot. This is basically the hookah of the prophets of the last element and
it also Swaziland among the things he said was he wrote on his camera and he said a UN official said I hope people spread peace among one another.
And feed from your food to others will sit on our hands and connect your family ties will suddenly be laid praying in the night, one nurse when he when people are asleep that hold on gentlemen, Mr. Lamb, you will enter Paradise in peace. These are among the first interests established and sent to the people of Medina as soon as he entered, you see the mindset of Islam. the mindset of developing a community was based on these few points. We cannot be a community if we abandon our solid. We cannot be a community if we abandon our mosques. We cannot be a community if we don't contribute from our energy and our wealth and our skills towards building the community. We cannot be a
community we cannot be a community if we abandon our connection with the core and with daily thicker remembrance of Allah you can't otherwise what's going to unite us under what purpose if your love for online connection with Allah is cut off your connection from the Muslims is cut off the connection from the people is cut off your connection from that type of committee is going to come up and you're going to do things your own way. Love one another for the sake of Allah
do not break your promises. This is what built a community on in Medina is how it began its establishment
How much is it?
Okay, about four or five minutes time my brothers and sisters in Islam
a question the people of Medina Welcome to Proxima Lago and he will send them with the famous
chanting talaga drylin.
The White Moon has rose over us from the valleys of what
Then I have to tell you, there is a slight difference among the scholars whether it did happen or not.
I love ruining the moment.
Some scholars said, it may not have happened.
It's not completely authentic, but the majority of the scholars believe it did. But it was not sung by everybody. He was sung by a group of little girls that came out a bunch of a few girls. And they got together and started making up this is poetry for the province, which makes a lot of sense. Little girls, nine years old, eight years old, 10 years they come out. They're really good at that stuff. I've got a 10 year old, Mashallah, and how they are and our friends come up with these things that rhyme and takes us an hour to get the hold of it. All right, even hopscotch and that thing they do, like this is unbelievable. I mean, they do it in like five minutes. It's okay for the next 100
years. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, this is basically what happened otherwise, the people of Medina was saying different things. They're saying Allahu Akbar, the Messenger of Allah has come a messenger of Allah you are safe we obey you we will not disobey you you and your companions is the things that that was saying. Among the things I was saying to miss come and live say at my house, I'll be your host. The Arabs hope being a host is a huge thing. However, the prophets Allah send them would say to each one of them, let my camel decide where it's going to sit
is camellia at a camel who knows his name
let us swap figure wherever she sits, that's where my home and the masjid will be built. And it sets in a particular place where now it's where we know most of the Navy and right there by the time his house was built in the mustard was built he stayed coincidentally with whoever was closest to their house and he was about a ubelong sorry, his name is Abu and saw he he was not very comfortable financially and he had a two story house but don't think two storylines some mentioned two story and if water safe from the top or spilt if you leave it long enough, a couple of days you might get through so he wasn't very well off. However, it was the greatest honor for him to host the messenger
of a muscle cell and
and the process that I'm setting let me stay at the bottom because you got a family it's easier for me to go in and out so he made it very easy for him. And at the same time this teaches us that a guest should make things easy on their host
then let me back the Lebanese people in my people okay, I'm not gonna beg anyone else.
I'm not gonna beg the Lebanese that's enough
and being a host however, the good thing about the Arabs in general and also other cultures but I know my culture very well that when it comes to hospitality it's it's unbelievable.
Right I have been to other cultures as well and they are unbelievable However, when I moved to the Philippines and Pakistan isn't that I just constantly the night because the burning sensation from the Chilean stuff because but hamdulillah now I'm used to it, bro. I'm used to it.
They call me used to by force my show.
So everybody Muslims generally hospitable and we are encouraged to be hospitable, is a beautiful happy to finish it with this about hospitality and the guest that saw Hadith that the prophet SAW Selim.
He heard about a woman,
a man or a woman who was complaining that too many guests come in and out. So the prophet SAW Selim went there, and
they were hospitable to him. And then as he was leaving, she said, I saw the images, symbols of
spiders and scorpions and things like that, exiting my home behind the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And when I asked him the proposal, I said, I've said, This is what happens when you treat your guests Well, when he comes in, and he leaves after you have been hospitable to them. He leaves or she or they leave with the sins that have been accumulated in your household. And those scorpions and spiders are a symbol of sins that have been accumulated when you are hospitable to the guests of Panama. They help wash away the sins that exist inside your home. And so Panama for those of you who do for the sake of Allah, try it with me when I come to your house.
But only kebabs and non jerky so come inside. And when they leave, and you do for the sake of a lot, you actually get a gift. The gift is a feeling of discomfort of a blessing that has entered your home and the feeling of relief, not relief because the guest is gone. If you do it for the sake of worldly things. It's a relief that the guest is gone. But the relief is you feel a burden of sins gone off.
If you do for the suddenly feel happiest upon so my brothers sisters in Islam as much as you can be hospitable to your guests and I say to the guests, don't overdo it, you know with your hosts have some mercy on them share a lot and reciprocate as the prophets of Allah. Allah advised us so inshallah next week my brother and sisters will continue about the life in Medina. There was some a lot on the venum, Hamadan earlier summer's rains.
