Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while he was off being a woman with a brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Just a quick note, we are still in the days of aydelotte 111 and the Tukwila ends tomorrow insha Allah and also time according to the correct Sona, but there is one sooner which has been forgotten or probably not known by a lot of people which inshallah I hope that we can be among the first to revive and that is that the takbeer of the elite is not restricted to just after so that you can actually sell and Mr. McQuaid everywhere. And so how is the mechtech be everywhere and among the things they used to say soprano on low and handed Low, low low income
including the other Kabir and you don't have to say very loud
say in the car on your way to work in the shops very quietly women can say it but very quietly any anytime you like. Keep saying.
So now we share a lot we come back to the Sierra.
We are now up to the first stage the first phase of the province on live on a he was sunlamps building of the Muslim community where
which city in Medina, in Medina.
The new name for your trip is Medina No. But
the Muslims and the people are still not yet familiar with the name Medina, that's a very new name.
And the reason was also wa sallam pulled up Medina is to give it that aura, that it is the capital of the Muslims, the city, capital T, that capital C, not just a city, but the city of Islam. That's where Islam began to grow.
So sometimes you'll hear that in some of the treaties, some of the agreements that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam wrote up between him and the
Muslims, and between between sorry, the Muslims among each other, and between their inhabitants, like the people who worship idols still in Medina, the treaties they made between them and the neighboring
Arabs, because later on, they made treaties with them and agreements with them. Li they're sort of like sort of like allies history. And with the Jews, the hood, who was surrounding Medina, you will find if you read the history books in this era of Islam, you will find that the contracts are written up with still the name yesterday in there.
Why? Because they still use to the mania three. It took time for people to get used to Medina. And this is to show you that Islam is not something that comes like as we say in Arabic confessor Koon, like a hammer on the head, and you have to accept it right now in the way that it is without any flexibility whatsoever. You have to take into account when something is new to people. Islam is very gentle when it brings its Deen to the people. So Islam came down in wisdom. And now you will see
the Sharia of Islam. You know the Sharia, the Sharia, the laws, the boundaries, the rules, the guidance, how Muslims protect themselves, the objectives of Islam, the Sharia. The law comes into place now. The Sharia has hasn't existed yet now. It's now about 14 years later. And we are in the first few days of the hegira after the Hadrian just arrived to Medina, and we are now in the first year in the first two years we're going to talk about today. The first two years of the progress of our systems arrival were in Medina. So let's go back now 1439 years ago Exactly. That's the calendar that we are on right now 1439 years ago,
in sofar. Just the next month after Mahara towards the end of Mahara beginning of suffer.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrives in Medina and we all know the story about how they welcomed him. We went through that last time.
And now in that first two years,
a lot of the Sharia begins to develop all of the laws and the guidance and the specifics of the five pillars of Islam except for
Hush. It was only in theory that hadn't done until years later. Remember
10 years later, but all the other laws of the salaat and fasting and Zakat were all established in the first two years.
Does anyone know?
How the select the prayers were prayed in the beginning? I mean, the Sharia is not there, right? So nobody really knows how many records they're supposed to pray. They don't know the timing of the Select. Did you know that? Did you know when the salad was revealed in Mecca? In the 11th, year of prophethood, there was no timing for the salad. They had five daily prayers, but they didn't know when to pray. And the number of record wasn't even established. yet. A lot of Muslims don't know this. But and it's not really important to know. Except for one reason
to show you that the way Islam was gradually brought to them and people talk to us was in steps a little bit by a little first it was this much then it was that much. And the thing that we can gather from this is when we teach people who are new to Islam or
new to Islam, either converted to Islam, or people who are born to Muslim families, but we know there are lots of them. Unfortunately, these days that grow up not knowing their Deen. They're not taught dating. But does Islam shun them away? No. You gradually give them the deen and show them the deen slowly bit by bit. You don't bring it all at once. Right?
There's this joke. I heard it from one of the chefs.
I hope it's appropriate to say.
I think it is. I'll just say it. The young people giving me that smile. They want to hear it now.
Should I say?
No, I'm not going to change my mind.
Or anyway, look, I'll say the joke. So he says that this guy converted to Islam. He comes to the mosque. He says the Shahada in front of all these sea of beards, because that's all they see of beards. But now beards are in fashion anyway. So in those days, it was an infection, see of beards, right? All of them looking at him with open arms. That's what people think that when they convert to Islam, I feel a feel for them when I stand here in spirit and we bring them on Juma. Everybody's here. All these brothers are looking at it they're actually happy with the way we show our happiness is by staring with open eyes. We can't wait to hear him say this. So he says the Shahada no Muslim
has just been watching Hollywood movies thinking out loud what it means you have this killing? Or there was a lot of uproar about to kill you. But now we're not hamdulillah we don't have to. I'm joking. Right? This is just this is some of the stereotypical thoughts that some people think because people teach you the wrong knowledge about Islam these days anyway.
So he becomes a Muslim. And the first thing they said to him that they come and hug him right there's a kiss
My bro Congratulations, brother to Islam. Now you have to go and get circumcised. Are you circumcised? No, you're not same as that don't get circumcised.
I don't know how they assumed is automatically not circumcised. That means people get circumcised. Anyway, they said you have to go get circumcised now he's really in his face. He's going Oh, my God. hospital right now. Yes, the complete,
circumcised and another brother that comes up because if you leave, leave, Islam will cut your neck off.
If I enter Islam, I've got to lose a part of my body and if I leave Islam, my life is gone.
So my brothers and sisters just a joke. It's not true. But the the idea is, when you teach Islam and people are new to the deen, you've got to teach them gently and bit by bit it's not true that once you enter Islam, you have to get circumcised otherwise that your deen is gone and if he can, he can if he comes to Panama, Durham, Nebraska and even with the idea of Apostasy We'll talk about it later on. There is a whole study about it's not black and white. This person doesn't you don't actually kill a person who leaves Islam in there. There are so many it's a different circumstance and you're going to hear about it and Sharon law as we proceed in this year, last month that I helped me in
trying to clarify this to the community or my brothers and sisters in Islam. Having said this, the first thing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did in Medina was, what did he do?
He built the message in the house of Allah. But I have a question. Did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not build his own house to live in first? shouldn't live is his own house. Now, Sam did not build his own house first. Was the province of our seller married. Yes, he was already married to two wives at that time.
I shadow their loved one Hmm. It was just a contract of marriage. They hadn't consummated the marriage. She was still a bit young, and another wife, a soda, or the old one, and she was older than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has a story about her. And they are both mothers of the believers.
And yet he still didn't build the house that were being looked after by the
The Proxima Selim lived with him for a few days, it took about five days to build the masjid. He saw two orphans, he bought the land with his own money, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they built the message. Why? Because the prophets of Allah salams concern is the community before himself, the community before himself.
If you don't establish the community, your family is going to be lost. If you don't look after the youth of the community, your children are going to join that corruption.
That's why what we're going to learn in this Medina is a very valuable lesson my brothers and sisters, even while living in Australia, and we don't have an Islamic State here, nor are we asked, no commanded by a lot to establish an Islamic State here. However, what we are commanded to do is to establish a community, a community with the massage, and the commandments and the guidance of a lot in what we call brotherhood and system.
And we have a duty of our show our Dean,
teach our Deen
show and teach as much as we can. My brothers and sisters in Islam, if we don't have that community, we are nothing.
The first thing Rasulullah saw Selim did was establish a central place where the community can go and meet and see each other and learn without anybody claiming it to themselves, and to break the most important obstacle that existed in that time and it still exists today. Unfortunately, people who don't fear a lot, and that is tribalism. today. It's nationalism. Today we have flats and countries. Okay, that's fine.
There is a stronger bond than belonging to a flag or a nationality.
The bond of faith of Deen of religion of Islam, why? There is a reason for that. compare the two. If you are part of a country you are in Australia, Australian citizens, which is great can delay Australian citizens you have the rights and all that stuff.
But what is it that Bond's Australian citizens together?
Is what is it specifically that Bond's us together? That would make us love one another and support one another. Other than that we belong as citizens to
a country named Australia
is their religion that wonders?
Which values are we talking about and specific, the values keep changing. And not everybody has to follow the exact same values. Not everybody is a force. It's a secular, pseudo secular, half Christian, half secular.
The fact that you have a nationality, a country a flag is good, but not enough. It doesn't create that brotherhood of love between people. Islam and religion has solid values, solid ethics, solid beliefs, that just by merely looking at each other and saying salaam aleikum, automatically 50 values are known between you two without having to talk about you don't need to talk about them.
It should make marriage easier. But again, we bring obstacles into them. Because Islam has established ethics and values that cuts away and breaks.
racial differences, color differences, nationalistic and tribal differences, and gender differences on a faith level. Not on a physical level on a faith level, there is no difference between a man and a woman in faith.
Now, as of a lot, anyone can be better than the other.
The bond of brotherhood, In the name of Allah is not stronger and cannot be compared to any other bond in the world.
So my brothers and sisters, the thing that the professor said and did was he bonded them in this community of brotherhood, on the other hand, to support that, among the first verses that were revealed in Medina is the one is sort of dropped
in them and mocked me
As a matter of fact, the believers are brothers and sisters.
Do you know what brothers and sisters means?
What are the most say brothers and sisters in Africa say guess what it means brothers and sisters. In English you got to go brothers and sisters, but in Arabic, you can use one word which combines two together. Do you know what brothers and sisters means? In this term?
All it means is this, that
race color tribalism has no meaning.
You are brothers and sisters, you support one another, you treat each other, with no obstacles that should divide you.
Like a family, like siblings.
It means tribalism gone, nationalism gone. color and race gone.
Brothers and sisters, for example, let's say that your father was married to a white mother. And you were born boy, she died, he married another woman who was African color. And then you had siblings who were dark in color.
You become brothers and sisters, you're not going to look and say you're dark on white, your brothers and sisters. Automatically that's strong. So I lost my dad, I use the word brothers and sisters, in
the fact that you believe and have the same faith, the same values apply the same ethics apply. You are now my brothers and sisters. Nothing should break you apart. In fact, I'll tell you something, will love it, it is stronger than the bond of blood.
It is stronger than the bond of blood. If you have bond of blood and the bond of Dean, it's the strongest you can ever have.
What did the professor I sent him do? He built the message within five days.
Then he built two homes for himself small hundreds, few meters by two meters for him, his two wives next to them.
The house I should have lived in was really close to the masjid. Today I'm not going to talk about his marriage to it shall be a lot more on inshallah, in the next few weeks to come, I will address this topic. And I have a different take on it by the way than the one you have heard of the mainstream
answers people give you. Until then inshallah, I'll keep you hanging.
Because it's not the most important thing to talk about. To be honest, it's actually irrelevant. For me, it's around talking about it is actually irrelevant. But people make it relevant today when it's really irrelevant. And we'll explain that in a few weeks to come.
Then the prophet SAW Selim did something that was unprecedented, unprecedented, unprecedented means never done before in the history of mankind. For the first time in the history of this world, the province of the Laval ad was seldom brought the Muslims together under one call, which is the other end.
The other end of last week, I told you that I will bring the name of the first Sahabi that saw the dream of the event. His name was our beloved and azubi are one of the largest museums around the globe. Zaid, if you heard is that he used to be the adopted son of the province of La Silla. They married Xena been to Josh.
Okay, that's her name. And she had they had Abdullah
Abdullah was like a grandson to the proxy class. And I mean, he was quite young at that time. He was in his early teens, maybe 12, or 13 years old. They were considered adults, not like today. You know, 12, or 13 is still like, really kids, you reach 20. And we still treat them like kids in the society we live in has made princesses out of us.
And we have to use the phrase I've used so many times toughen up princess. In those days, they weren't princesses at 12 or 13 brothers sisters.
So he was only about 12 or 13. And I've learned that mosaic walks into the mystery to the cinemas, and yet I saw a lot I saw in my dream that there was this man selling, you know, stuff. And I came I saw a horn and I saw a drum. And I saw all these things. I'm trying to pick one of them. I said could suddenly one of them and he's asking me which one do you want? What do you want it and I said the messenger so as I was looking for some kind of thing to call the people to sell out within I want to see which one's the best. And the man selling said to me.
Can I teach you something better, say a long, long, long, long.
When he woke up he went to the proxy lessons video. So this is what I saw. The professor said and looks at him and he said
This is will be the call to select this will be the call of the Muslims
come to success come to prayer.
It is not the dream
that legislated this Why am I saying I don't want you to think that our religion is based on dreams? Yes, I'm not sure his dreams to you like the Hereafter is come and will shows you signs of where you're going and where you're coming but they're not used to legislate to make law in the deen to make sure yeah and the DD
what legislated that then was the command of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not the dream, he approved on it, and said this will be his dream was just a reason for the legislation. So the legislation came from a proxy. And then below that Ana walks in, he said to say, go and let be that go off to college, got a louder voice and tell him what you saw. And he'll repeat it after you. Therefore, the first person to really call the other one is our beloved music. You have a quiz one day and it's $1,000 rule, reward or prize on some radio station in Ramadan. And they say who was the first to technically called then you saw the love was eight
and they said it was below them and they say no, no, no, it's up the line was that is my evidence of the lab was a was the first one that cold actually pulled them out of the law. He made him out. And then hombre Delano walks in with his shirt well, half in and half out and he's very, he was running towards the process that I sent him and he said, what he wasn't even tied on property. That's almost for you to log on. And he said, Dr. Osama, I heard this. I saw in my dreams from selling CDs. This is the one anyway my brothers and sisters, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the Muslims. He got the more has God and the answer. The mohajir in are the ones who migrated from Mecca
Medina, and the answer are the ones who live in Medi. The main two tribes are outs and coverage. Inside outs and hazards. There are sub tribes. There are dozens of sub tribes. We don't need to know their names. It's not important. Alison hazard as is also not even important. As much as they were called the unsought by the prophets of Allah salla the victors.
They had already pledged allegiance to the Prophet salaallah Salah at the Aqaba, remember, we talked about it last time.
And they pledged that they will protect and defend the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with their money, their family and their blood to protect him.
He brought them together.
In the masjid, there was only about 17 of them that it started off with. And what did you do? unprecedented.
He brought one man from the marine
and one man from the ensemble
and their families. So a man with his family.
And he bonded them with another person they needed. One man from Isaac bonded him with a man from Amazon.
In modern day terms, they probably call it the buddy system buddying people up, you have in a primary school, say the buddy system. And primary school we have buddies, you get like a grade six, and it becomes a buddy for a prep and they basically guide each other and advise each other the older ones sort of gives them guidance and teaches them stuff and looks out for them right in lunchtime and recess and so on. And so it's called buddy system, but the process of assembling that he was the first one to establish the buddy system. But it was stronger than that. It was based on religion. He called them brothers.
He called them brothers, they had to treat each other like real brothers like blood brothers.
And not only did they treat each other like blood brothers, it means that the answer again to share what they both share with them Assad was stronger than more wealth and he didn't work. They're migrants. They don't have anything right the poor, the unsought shared with them their wealth, their food, their homes, they advise them, they taught them, they nurtured them, they taught them new skills,
looked out for them, they have to look out for each other
in every way. Not only that.
I'm also brought up a law by the rule of law, of course, from a last minute data that they also inherit from each other, they inherit from each other. When one of them dies, the other one inherits, and his family like the normal widow for that we have today. When a person dies,
you distribute the inheritance in accordance of the way the court answered
That was in the beginning, the inheritance. later on. When the Muslims became larger and more Hadrian became more capable of looking after themselves. Allah subhana wa tada sent down another verse. So there was a verse in the Quran, where they, saddam Algerian, they inherit from each other. Then they came another verse, which what we say abrogated the first verse, it abrogated. abrogation means that it superseded takes over the formable. Okay, the law that was before and that exists in the corner that exists in Arizona, Arizona, we believe in that the law says man in certain area can own see how not to be highly minha. Obviously, there isn't a verse that we sent down.
Right? Either we leave it
or any verse that we abrogate will bring another verse in its place. Or we make it forgotten. There are some verses that were revealed, never forgotten, Allah made them forgotten. They no longer with us a lot of this. Or he said, we replace him with another verse, or we leave them and there's another vert, yet something better or like it something better or like it, or we made it make it forgotten. One of these examples is this one, the Brotherhood they inherit from each other, then unless you've done a verse which abrogated, which takes over and the normal inheritance system was now established. Only Allah says, it is not befitting for them to inherit from each other except the
families, the ones who are blood related. And that is because of the duty that we have towards our family. A family should not be left. If the father dies, the husband dies.
In the breadwinner, or the wife, those are women that they left, they left poor. In fact, one man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Medina, in the first two years while the Sharia was being established, and they're learning and they're getting used to it. He said, yasunaga I have this much wealth, I would like to write in my will, that I dedicated all of it for you, Sabina, I'm going to give it officer vanilla, I want to give it to the state or to the poor people, all my wealth and the province have refused. He said no.
Then your family after your death will come to me with their hands out poor saying give me give me not that the processor is not generous, he doesn't want their families to be left without wealth.
Then he said okay, half of it. He said not even half of it. He said a third year rasulillah he said and that is too much.
So therefore it was established that only a third of your inheritance your wealth, you can write in your will that a third of it can be in the cause of a lot. And Brazil as Adam said, and that is too much meaning if you can don't give any of it away if he said we did ifisa videos to your family because you also that are going to go to
make sense my brothers and sisters in Islam
so the Sharia was being brought down bit by bit. There are a lot of salad we're actually to every all five so that the first one was to the Lord was to the other was to the motive was to was to to duck out. And basically they prayed them anytime in the day together apart. Some here some there, it didn't matter.
To then it was in there first to use the province of Allah Selim then established the actual number of silhouette that we pray now, this happens is from it shall be alone. And she said first it was like this. Then it also was Alison Salah celeb made it on the way that you now know.
From the proper syllabus, and
then the timing was made. And the letter of the law 100 began calling the event at this different times. This is how they learn from different types of solid.
One of the stories of the Brotherhood one was Saudi Arabia and other men have no house of men. And now for the last one who was one of them, or has you need when we for those of you who know his story, he was one of the most wealthiest, that he was an entrepreneur. I mean, he said that a lot of that has blessed me with my business that I swear. He's just exaggerating, said I swear if I turned a rock over, I would find money under that's how successful he was in business. And in fact, business and trade is encouraged in Islam and it is blessed so long as you do it properly, without trickery without hiding default goods or false in goods without tricking people without being unfair
without charging interest and so on. And so when we're not allowed to do all that fair trade is what Islam and business accepts. And that is what Islam blesses. And in these two years the prophet SAW Selim established
Fair Trade. I'll tell you in a minute. Our grandmother was very well human. He did his job. Obviously migrants coming out of the land with a with a press that took all their wealth. He had nothing.
His brother, Saudi Arabia, he said to him, he's from Lancelot, this is how much love when frozen Selim said brotherhood this is what they did. I want to explain to you how help how much love they these are sodomizing is not unlike him. You will never find out here about anyone like this superhumans, something different out of this world.
He said to his brother, Albert, random and outcoming. You
I have a home's two stories, simple two stories. Choose the story you want and it's yours. You want the top it's yours. The bottom two are on any price for it's yours.
And I have two wives.
Have a look at them. The one that you like are divorced. So you can marry. I have wealth, you can take half of it. I have a land of this many palms, you take anyone did the land that you wish taken
a lot of work. Now you might be thinking now what to wise, That's cruel. How can you give up? What about the wife's right? Fine. When is remember, we're saying the Sharia is being shown bit by bit step by step. There are still old cultures in them. And when you bring the old culture with the love, the passion, what happens. They want to do the best of the old culture thinking it's good
in the passion of Islam, so he said I'll give you the wife that they didn't know the value of wives before Islam. And as the Sharia is being established, they still Muslims who are who still don't understand the learning. The Sharia has been shown over 10 years. So he comes up with this clear sincerity, I will divorce optimize, you choose the beautiful one that you want.
And now from knowing Islam more than him by now, because remember, the Muslims only been in Medina for a few days. And all they had was Muslim economic teaching them whatever he knows. In the meantime, the Mahajan is still learning from the process of asking them in Mecca. By the time they arrive in Medina, the answer is still new. They're learning bit by bit, they don't know anything yet. But the trying, the Maharaja didn't know or teaching them a little bit more from what we learned from the Brazil lesson. So I'm gonna have an offset to him, then don't do that. I'm sick, Alec Xhosa. And then I suppose to keep your wife don't don't do so for me. But he understood his
intention. Keep your wealth, keep your everything for your family, but show me where the market is. And he showed him the soak the market in those days was the one with the Jews, the Jews had a big market, they were in charge of the market and its business. And what they did was there was unfair trade. They used to charge interest. They used to sometimes trick in the way that they sold. Right all this stuff, inflation stuff and all that they they practice that right. And this is haram in Islam, you don't have that fair trade. And what happened is that about half an hour, went and tried it a little bit after a few weeks, he comes back wearing nice garment has got a bit of wealth. And
he says yeah, rasulillah it promises. And so he goes, Oh, what's happening to you? know, you look like you look really handsome, you're wearing good stuff, because I've got engaged the other soul? Because would you get engaged from it? That's from the answer is really, really good because you're getting married to me. And then he said to him, Have you had a look at her? Did you see them? And he goes, No, I didn't see them.
Some of the cultures that I'm seeing the wife. So then the Sharia can be seen. It's establishing bit by bit as things are happening across the house. And I've said no, go and have a look at her eyes. I know that the answer.
They're known that some of them, you know, they look up a particular feature of that feature, go and have a look at her eyes go and have a look at her face. And what what it meant was that the women of Ansel look different to the women of Makkah, you don't know if you're, if that will tickle your fancy or not maybe a to use to the eyes of the women of mankind and women have a little bit different. By the way, the women of Morocco are quite rough and tough. They can be rough and tough. And the women of Medina were actually a bit softer. So he said to him go and have a look at her and see what you like and her features and things like that. And therefore the Sharia was established
that when you want to get married, it is a highly recommended so not some LMS said it's worship. It's a must, that the two people have to look at each other have to see each other because you're getting married, I'm going to spend the rest of your lives together.
wake up the next morning and you see something you don't like and it's too late to regrip so in Islam, men or women I'm talking you know, men or women right this this day and age, man I mean, men are doing stuff to the faces as well. Now anyway, without going into too deep because I'll get in trouble if I say the wrong thing. That was a shutting up being established. People are learning it bit by bit. No one can contact these early stages and say this is my day. Need
This is evidence. I can now divorce a wife of mine, probably thinking about divorce for a long time and in the name of donating her, but you can't do that this is this is wrong. But in the early stages of Medina, they're learning. Okay, brothers and sisters. So now, this is happening. Another story it was segmented fantasy semmen Fantasy embraced Islam years later, like probably about six or seven years later after the proposal. I said, I migrated to Medina, and he became the brother of Abdullah, that
you might be thinking, what happened? What do you mean? Was he not a Muslim, and he was the brother. I sent him in the first six, seven years he was wasn't his brother. But what it shows you is the Brotherhood system was happening through ultimately and throughout the time, that was the last element Medina, it didn't just happen in the beginning, it kept going. And I'll tell you something, this is a forgotten sooner.
It is forgotten sooner in our time. And we we hope to show someone's can revive. You've got people who convert to Islam knew.
Some of them their families,
abandoned, they disowned them.
They cut them off. And these people converted to Islam are thinking they're coming to this family, I will welcome them like their own. Because they've read so much about the proposal, I send them in Islam and then and then some of them are shocked to see that it only happens when they say the Shahada. Everybody says that
you think it's all over man. Next day, no one's around the buddy system or the Brotherhood system, the system and system, you call them up you look like to actually set you will look after this person. For the sake of a lost count data, you can now decide by yourself. Now you know, someone who was neglected doesn't have anybody lonely. You can buy yourself talk to your wife and go to or your husband say we want to take this person, as brother and sister obviously got to trust them, get to know them, definitely. And then we slowly established looking after them, even if it's minimal, just call them up to see what they are asking if they need anything. Introduce them to places and don't
abandon them as much as you can. Well, like this is the next best thing after sponsoring an orphan.
I'm not saying they're orphans. But I'm saying that the virtue of looking after someone in need
of the loved ones doing
it in the message of the prophets. Allah says listen carefully in Ramadan, in the last 10 nights of Ramadan were
in the mercy of others and can't get any better than you do in Africa. Last 10 nights of Ramadan in the message of the promise of Salah you can't get any better than that.
A man comes along.
He needs help.
First gets out of his article and leaves with him and we know that you shouldn't leave your article because then it's cut off right? He goes with him comes back and other Sahabi says to him, what did you do? You cut off your article so valid in the last 10 nights in just to help a man at least wait for you to get to finish. He said I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say this was after the death of the person and he said I'll
say whoever goes in the assistance of his needy brother or sister. It is more virtuous and rewarding than doing artica for the last 10 nights of Ramadan famous jihad in this in mind.
Can you imagine that free rewards my brothers and sisters in Islam. This was the Brotherhood system the province of la semana established and truly created an absolute love between them with a click like that just with a word that has never been seen before. And I think anyone can match them and the last point that I mentioned them in the Quran to the people of the unsought and Allah says in the Quran three ritual today while theater on
foresee him Wahby him ha saw and they used to Allah says and they used to sacrifice and put burden upon themselves or deprive themselves they used to deprive themselves
in order to give to their brother ins while they were in need themselves they're in need but though the private to give to them one of the brothers have the answer. He didn't have enough food he only had like a loaf or two of bread so that you know they fit their children just a little bit and then put them to sleep but the husband and wife no food and they they welcome their brothers and they put the the the what he called a bit nice to have the the Lenten right with the fuel. They put it down a little bit so that there's not much light. And I'll tell you why. They welcome them in. And I started eating right until the guests finished their brothers from the Menagerie. And when they went
they were asked why did you put the lantern down? And they said and he was found out later that so that the guests don't see that we're not eating with them. Because the guest sees that you're eating with them will feel comfortable. But because they didn't have enough they didn't want to eat from it because then they won't be
For the guests so the cook the lantern down so Panama so that the guests will think that they eating with him but they're actually not so that they guess the brothers from Malaysia including, that's what Allah mentioned there. I've actually got a ball in my throat man. It's getting emotional that when you look after these peoples of Panama the Allah mentions in the Quran, anyone who does this new universal way through nylon fusi if you do that yourself sometimes if you can, once in a while you are with them. It's like I was indirectly mentioning use apana lenses as soon as that we have forgotten this upon a lot, very, very selfish A lot of us and it's hard to find generous people who
give and remember that the hero, my brothers and sisters in Islam, after the war at heart, it's called the Brotherhood system a loss and down in Neverland.
Now the Sharia was established. And Allah says, Behold the brothers the believers are brothers. For us in Havana after waco you should be reunited between each other if you can sign in between each other You should settle affairs between each other what the law and federal law in your love for each other. And then Allah subhanaw taala goes on by saying Don't mock them bunch of men mock another bunch of men maybe the other bunch of men are better than the early a bunch of men and not let not a bunch of women mock another bunch of women maybe the latter are better than earlier so don't mock each other don't put each other down Muslims around to put each other down and mock each
other even if it's the truth even though something truth about your brother or sister in Islam, you don't use the opportunity to put them down. right this is an act of pridefulness then Allah says in the Quran, Iran You know what, after just Sudan spy on one another Baba, Baba done back by one another, Francois Salim said and Riba backbiting means to say something about your brother or sister in their absence, something that is true, but they don't like you to say, one of them said they are so low, but if it is true, he said, that's that's what backbiting is. If it's not true to slander, you know something even true about your brother, and this is not and this is going to harm some. But
if something secret you know about him to cover for your brother, advise him if he can, anyway, and all these other rules and not one iota about whether the numbers are going up or down, call each other filthy names bit so dismal for super bad. And imagine how terrible it is that after you've embraced Islam, Allah him and Allah made you brothers, that you now call each other ugly names. Even change some of the names, these two come to me as a What's your name? What's your name? What's your name? Men and women, some of these terrible names, one boy comes up and says, Yeah, no, solomo does not have rights against my father. He said, Yes. And his father named him surely surely means a dung
beetle. You know, the beetle that walks backwards with the elephant. It's called a dung beetle. It's called john called him, john. And he said, You know, this is wrong from some changes. Now, another one was called something about a slave of a statue of Zeus, and I'm changed his name, to change their names. And that's why we're supposed to learn in the Sharia that with our children's rights is that I mean, I'm good names, easy names, short names, simple names that we can easily saved and not her own names, and so on and so forth. So the Sharia has been established my brothers and sisters Next.
something remarkable happens. Just as the Select has been established.
At the time,
I'll just end it here. The most important now something tremendous happens.
As they are praying, and as they're doing this salad, where are they facing? Where are they facing?
Since every prophet has always faced Jerusalem,
whoever the neighboring people to Medina,
the Jews, they are hood. What is the most sacred place to the
Jerusalem? What is the most sacred place to the Christians? Jerusalem? What is the most sacred place the Muslims at that time? Jerusalem as well? Jerusalem as well.
And now we're still praying towards Jerusalem, up to this point.
But Ibrahim Ali Sanam is the first of the province to establish Mecca.
And the Kaaba is the first house of a law to be built on Earth.
40 years later,
beta mock This was built something like bacon It was said that as Holly said, and builtup Allahu Allah 40 years after Allah said lucara in our in our elevating Woody Allen Nationale de Baca, mobile confy. The first house of a law that was established on earth for the people is the one in backup backup is Mecca, another name for MCI. So a loss controller was going to change the krippner to MCE anyway, but out of his wisdom, he delayed it and there are at least
Five different very powerful wisdoms that we can get out of it.
In that first few months, a lot of dialogue noticed.
It's always been noticing that the process of sending them used to direct himself towards the, towards the Kaaba.
Even when he was in Mecca. He used to stand in such a way, that when he prayed towards Jerusalem, that God was in front of him.
Jerusalem is north, to capital, north, therefore, Kaaba is self to Jerusalem, the exact opposite. to beware big big turnaround and big wisdom chapter have to leave till next week. But just to say this, when he was in Makkah, he is the face guy because he loved the GABA and process and and felt it should go back to the original way it should be. And that is what Abraham Isaac the father of the prophets built it. First house of a law.
The Jews were praying towards Jerusalem, and Allah had chosen bamboo Israeli I chose in the hood, among all people he did, Allah did, Allah said to them stufurhome, he chose you among more people.
And if same from you, most of the prophets, it was true.
Until now, when I broke all the laws, when they turned away from a law when they rejected the property law, send them a law said to them, you know, you do not deserve this new profit. Therefore, everything now is going to change from your attention.
You gave up, you turned away from a loss, Allah is going to turn away from you now, the first thing he did, he changed the clip. That was the biggest, hardest blow to them.
One day, the process of settling he got so anxious.
He used to make dough out to unlock the center of doors to put your head down and open your palms upwards.
Like a beggar.
You don't look him in the eyes and go like this.
Only when you are absolutely distressed and absolutely. You really distressed
the promise of our surname is to look up to the sky.
This time, was the first time he looked up in the sky.
And Allah sent down the verse in na na, na talaga logic. So
we can see how you are looking up in the sky all the time. Now I know your industry so you want something fairly new when Leanne Nicola Jonathan could let them talk about how we shall give you as a gift, a privilege which you are pleased with. Allah was already going to do it, but he made it match.
So it can become also a gift to the process.
And so the Qibla was changed from Jerusalem to the Kaaba, my brothers and sisters in Islam. I would like to stop here now. Next week inshallah we'll talk about the wisdoms of the changing of the Qibla. Second, we're going to talk about the treaty the processor made between him and the Jews and the people of Medina, very important.
Then we're going to talk about the introduction the lead up to the Battle of better that's next week and show a lot either Thank you for listening how there was a lot on Amina Mohammed.
