Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
at hamdulillah salat wa salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah He wasapi brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum once again
today inshallah we will continue with the initial stages of the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in Medina so we are now I'm going to take you back to the first two years of the prophets of Allah while he was synonyms arrival in Medina what happened in those two years, just before the Battle of better
it's a long story, so many things happened. We don't have time to go through it all because we're talking about the Sierra biography of the proxy last time so we will stop at the most important parts and shall we all know that the Prophet peace be upon him has now made hedger and all the Muslims from Mecca that embraced Islam and now in Medina, people are still embracing Islam and Mecca. But in the meantime, the province of SLM has begun developing the community. in Medina, he's got no time to waste. And so in this first two years, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam covered a lot more data revealed most of the Sharia, the Sharia of Islam means the laws and the
teachings that govern the protection of five things. Protection of faith, religion, what are the things that make you protect your religion habit, and not forcing people to embrace Islam, the rights of other people to follow their own faith. Number two, the protection of life the Sharia, I came down to establish how life can be protected. Number three, the protection of property, people's property, and how the Sharia came to establish so that people can live safely so their property is not taken away from them or stolen. Number four, the protection of dignity and honor. And in this protection of dignity and honor, especially in the first two years, a lot of laws are brought down
to establish the value of Guess what, of women and wives daughters, because in the pre Islamic Arabia, women had little to no value at all or rights. So the Sharia came in, and also the aspects of Xena and fornication, forbidding people from committing adultery and fornication, in order to purify the community. And number five, the protection of your intellect. So alcohol was truly forbidden intoxicants and drugs was forbidden. These were the five aspects of Sharia that were established in the beginning. Why? Because people need a safe place to live. And they need to be able to have a family where they can raise them in safety in all these five essential areas, life,
faith, religion, life, property, dignity, and honor your dignity and honor family and so on and so forth. And your intellect,
then the spirituality was always happening, guiding people to spirituality, showing them how to pray, showing them how to get closer to one last panel dialogue. But one of the most important aspects of developing the community which the province of Law Center focused on the most
was establishing a bond, a brotherhood between the Muslims, not only that, and
and the friendship with the neighbors of Medina, they will not Muslim. The first among them in Priority were the Jews who lived around Medina. Secondly, the Arab other Arab tribes that lived around Medina,
and then short as soon you're going to find out that he went out to make contracts of agreements of peace, peace treaties, with all the other as many as he can of the Arab tribes, that covered between Medina and Mecca, and between Medina and a place called Sham, greater Syria, all that route over there, where the Muslims used the Arabs is to trade through so he's tried to establish a peace treaty with all these people. Why? Because the Prophet of Allah said lambs, wanted peace for the people and pays for the neighbors and war and battles and fighting was the last thing on his mind. Some of it was selling, the last thing that
he wanted was war and battle. But once they became established as establishing themselves as the government, like any other government, they have to be careful, they're going to have enemies, they're going to have people who are probably going to fight them so they have to establish a system of how to protect themselves. So the first proposal I send them did was within Medina.
bonded the Muslims together. You cannot support one another and fight an enemy or become a community of safety and development if the people inside are divided. That is the crux that's the heart of what the prophets of Allah Selim did from the beginning of his life to the end, especially in Medina, to the point that he died solo salami focused on that. Number two, the neighbors, the closest neighbors, the Jews, number three, the other neighbors as far as he could reach, establishing, number one, a peace treaty with them. We are friends, and we support each other and we defend an outside enemy who attacks any of us. This is what the first aim was.
So when you entered Medina sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, among the things which he focused on, and I'll say a few habits, which he used to say.
Among the things he used to say what
he who doesn't make his neighbour feel safe from their harm, will not enter Paradise. A Muslim is one whom other Muslims are safe from his Tongan hands. None of you will truly attain faith until he loves his brother, what he loves for himself. And he's to go out and constantly tell the people a believer is like one body. If his eyes heard the body complains, if his head hurts his body complaints, he went out telling them a believer to another believer is like a building, it's bricks support one another. He also said, Do not be hateful to one another, nor jealous of one another, no, turn your backs on one another. But be Oh servants have a lot of brothers and sisters. And it is not
permissible for a Muslim to desert his brother for more than three days. This is the things he used to tell them. He also used to go around any place he went, he would say, a Muslim is the brother of another Muslim, he does not oppress him, nor give him up to the enemy. And whoever goes in the service of his brothers need, Allah will be there for his knees. And whoever relieves another Muslim from their hardship, Allah will relieve them or him from a hardship and the hardships of the Day of Resurrection. And whoever covers up the sin or shame of another Muslim you know something about another Muslim, his secret of shame or a fault and you cover it up. You don't have to exposing it to
people unless they're going to harm people of course, will Allah will cover up his sin or shame on the Day of Resurrection. So if you don't want to be exposed on the Day of Judgment for secret sins you've done, which should remain between you and Allah, then you cover up for your brothers and sisters as well in this world, oh how much we are in need of this. He also says to say Have mercy on those on Earth, the one who is in the heavens will have mercy on you. He also used to say, insulting and swearing at another believer is false, which means corruption of your morals. Your witness will not be accepted and fighting him is disbelief. It's an act of disbelief. You don't truly become a
graphic but it's an act of Kufa, you'll be punished on the Day of Judgment like the kofod until a law decides to put you in jail, fighting and killing and battling with a Muslim.
He used to go he used to consider removing a harm from the road or pathway, little glass or anything in the way of the people as an act of charity and counted it as one of the strands of a man is what completes your Eman. He also is to say any Muslim who closed another Muslim who is in need a lower closed him from the greeneries and beauties of gentlemen, any Muslim who feeds a hungry Muslim, Allah will feed him from the fruits of genda. Any Muslim who quenches the thirst of another Muslim alone will quench his thirst from the pure fountains of gentlemen. He also used to say, protect yourself from the fire, even by donating half a date. And if you cannot afford a half a day, then
with a nice word that you say to someone, also being he taught them to be content and avoid asking and begging, asking people for things, encouraging patience and perseverance. And he used to consider a person who has a habit of asking people for things all the time,
a flaw in their character unless he was in genuine need.
Muslim doesn't go around asking people for things. So unless you're in need, it's called a life to be content and happy with what you've got. And you are a giver, not a taker. That's what a Muslim is like. My brothers and sisters. These are the foundations that the seller was placing in the hearts of the Muslims if they don't have that they are noble. They are nothing. They are nothing. This is what the Roseanne was mostly talking about. In his speeches in solid after Salat in the masjid in the market with neighbors to the people. And so every single day was a day of learning something new. Not a day, caste, not
Solid past, not a meeting with the professor said in the past, except that people were learning something from the province of Milan, he was telling them, nothing was wasted, whether he was in the house and secret with his wife is they're learning and his wives are telling people about what he spoke about. So even the affairs of how our husband and wife should be our father and children, mother and children, even in the secret parts of your private house, how a family has much to treat one another. The process of our asylum was an open book, and the people were learning step by step. One very interesting thing here is, as far as what we've reached, now, only the heat which is the
oneness of Allah and the hereafter, and so on and so forth. And select were the only two of the five pillars that had been commanded.
Fasting had not been prescribed, it was the past whenever they wanted. And it was a law that the province of Ontario settler said it was compulsory to fast the 10th day of Muharram. The 10th day of Muharram was passing by the Jews one time every day, and he saw them fasting the 10th day and he asked them why you felt what why did they do fast this day, he was still learning about the Jews and they said this was the day when Allah saved us. From Pharaoh when Allah sent Moses a prophet to save us from Pharaoh, the children of Israel, you know, the Jews of Israel. And the prophets of Allah sent him said, we have more right to celebrate this day of of my brother Moses, Messiah sent him
than you. So he ordered that the Muslims fast that day fasting to us is celebration. And so it was compulsory to fast Mohan around. But then, in the second year of hijra, the second year, Ramadan was prescribed in the second year so after two years ago, so I said I was in Medina Ramadan, the fasting of Ramadan came down and he abrogated it took over the Muharram Haram is now as soon as I recommend that sooner whoever wants to first the 10th day of Mahara, you will have to hold years of your past of minus sins forgiven, minus things that you did by mistake or fault or weakness, it will be forgiven. It's coming up in show a lot very soon. My brothers and sisters in Islam, we talked about
the changing of the Qibla. Now I'm going to stop here for a minute and come back to the kidnap. After I just say a few things in sha Allah.
The Prophet sallallaahu send them when he built the masjid something very important that I haven't mentioned yet. In the back of the masjid. He built a shelter.
The shelter was called sofa and so families in Arabic shelter are recovering. What did you do with the sofa?
The sofa was a safe haven, a place of accommodation for the homeless and the needy among the migrants. The more Algerian who came from Makkah there were still those who embracing Islam remember and they were coming to Medina asylum seekers, refugees, immigrants, and they had no work or family that are probably they had family that they had no wealth or home. So no one could accommodate for them they were over overflowing so the process of the lesson that made for them in the mystery back area and in whom we call till today and we remember them as a new sofa. A sofa the people have the shelter at the back of the machine. And the most
popular and famous person companion of Alice sofa was guessing his name was nicknamed
he loves cats he loved kittens is to always kept everywhere he seems holding a cat or kitten feeding a cat or kitten is always holding it with him in the mustard outside the monster petting them. He was called Abba hora. The man of the kittens the kitten man. Okay, the other cat man from Slovakia Sela used to call him that name in Arabic. If someone has a habit of doing something that stands out in their personality, right crops are so nice to encourage people having their own personality, something that they stood out with a skill, a personality, a habit that was good. He liked it. Some of it was in like people to be individuals or out of their own. And he used to call them a nickname
abora because he loved cats. He fed cats It was a simple algorithm. And this is an indication that Muslims should be good to cats and that cats have there is actually a hadith from salatu salam I forgotten which book of Hadith but it's an authentic hadith that cats are a sign of Eman.
Right cats are assigned mmm because cats that aren't big. If you don't give them food, they just go and look after themselves. Right. And they don't rely on you that you learned the last panel dialer. And they're not they're not a burden fellas. You don't want to feed them just open the door and they go and that's why a woman sitting beside him Bahati that a woman entered Hellfire because of that last thing she did before she died and that was she tracked the cat in a room because the cat was naughty. So she trapped it in a room out of punishment and would not give it food not allowed.
To get out of the room to get its own food from the risk of a lot until the cat suffocated and died. It died of hunger, starvation, I'm sorry, not suffocation. And as a result of that this woman had just a little bit to enter pet hellfire. And that last sin was what she needed to end to Hellfire with it. So some kind of luck, and another woman enter paradise for feeding a dog to quench his thirst and needed one more sin one more good date. And that good deed was the crunching of dog she ended up in paradise as a result of so my brother and sisters, the professor I sent him was establishing harmony and mercy to everything, the environment, the animals, the insects, the the
base, all of them had their rights, the neighbors, the Muslims or non Muslims. That is how community thrives. My brothers and sisters in Islam, then. So Pamela, you know, what also strikes me is hijab, the women's veil was not prescribed yet. Do you know when the veil came down, five years after the hegemon in the fifth year of the ledger? So at this point, women didn't really wear the hijab of the veil that we see now. Okay, because Sharia and Islam was coming bit by bit, but there are a few reasons for that, number one, because Allah, Allah wants us to focus on this, if you do not have proper belief, if you don't believe in Allah, if you're a disbeliever, then no matter what good
action you do, it doesn't matter if you obey online, everything else if you don't believe in Him, you're not a Muslim, you're not a believer. It's all destroyed. It's not accepted from you. You know, it's cute that some people they want to share prayers with us and they want to fast with us but they don't believe in Allah. It's an oxymoron. These actions are not accepted by almost no God. Allah says we'll call him a lemma Amina, Amina, harmonica Jana who have Sora on the Day of Judgment, we will approach these people's good deeds which they did on Earth, but they did it for other than Allah Spanner. counted as nothing, it'll just be destroyed perished, but they will receive the
reward of social goodness and kindness from the Muslims and from other people. That's the reward but so more important than Salah more important than has more important than fasting more important than hijab, more important than is a cap was number one. Faith belief. You're an Olympic athlete, Athlete of the world, okay, that didn't exist at the time the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but when people expanded, they wanted to know what is the belief of God and what are its tenets and rules. So the owner established a whole system of belief, a rules that are called RP that what is what what makes you a true belief in Allah. Secondly, the Select select is more important than Asia. So that is more
important than Asia. If you have no connection with Allah Spinetta Allah, then Asia has not gone to lift your Eman that much. So your select comes next don't avoid it. And plus hijabs really just outside the home in front of strangers. So salad is always there's no excuse for leaving your salad under any circumstance.
Also, that the the the Arabs already had a form of hijab, the men and women already dressed modestly not like today. It wasn't absurd. It wasn't like really bad. It wasn't.
The dressing wasn't sexual. It wasn't seductive, it wasn't that tight. So it wasn't a big problem.
When the Quran came down, talking about the issue of five years later,
right, it didn't even talk about the whole hijab, all he said was, you know, it's as if it's saying,
you know, the clothing that you already wear, just, you know, add a little just refine it a little bit, just, you know, add a little bit here add a little bit there. It just came in to refine it. Otherwise, he was always there, the Christians had his, the Jews adhesion.
The word hijab is just means veiled. Right, but you know what I mean? So the proper clothing that we know now, it's always been always been Muslims weren't the first to to to establish yourself, right? So it wasn't the biggest deal yet. And that's why it can a little bit later, so Panama, my brothers and sisters in Islam.
the other sofa became special people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to encourage the Mohammed the unsolved Nigerian, all the others who have wealth, that whatever wealth, they have to share it with another sofa, if you got anything extra share with other sofa, and he used to say, Listen, if you've got food,
if you've got food only for one person who consider it enough for two people, if you've got food for two people consider it for four people always double, which means if you've got food for two people go and share it with another two people from another sofa. You've got to look after the measuring those people who are coming in. So panela Apple bought a lot a lot one was from another sofa. And he was among those who had to just stay in the masjid almost all of his life. And that is why we have the majority of the Hadith of the Prophet Allah sent him coming from a bigger era because he spent most of his time in the masjid watching and hearing and talking with
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most even towards his death of a hora de man was mentioned so much. Now there's long stories about people. So far there are stories about about whatever the line on how he embraces Islam and how there are miracles about and the teachers the empathy and love for the poor people. So if you went back in time, and I said this last time, if you wanted to look for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, go to the poor people. And if you want to start somewhere, you start with the people at the back of the message, they were the poorest, and they were the most in need, and you will find the prophets of Allah send them would not leave a prayer
out and go out even to his family before he sits with sofa and makes them feel, gives them company laughs with them, speaks with them, figures out their state knows about them all the time, you know, every new every single one of them. And wherever they land, who says there was no one who gave me the attention before the Prophet sallallahu wasallam I saw abubaker past,
past me all the other sahabas past me and Mohammed Salah Selim was the first one to smile in my face. And notice my presence, he was the first one. And I was very hungry that time. And, and I said also Lola, I'm hungry. And he also said, I'm hungry to come out with him. And he went out into the outside. And another two companions came along or three. And they said there are still a long way out. And you know, afterward he said, What are you out for? They said, We're hungry. He said, I'm out for the same reason you're out and about what I was still winning. Ilan was thinking, Man, I got two or three more people coming in, you know, I mean, I hope to show there'll be enough food for me.
So the process of our seven goes to this house of a Sahabi, of the unsought and he's only got a little goat and this little goat can only milk just enough for a little bowl abolished just barely enough for one or two people. So what I says in the story that I saw enough for really two people, or maybe one person, so I thought to myself, maybe the Francois senemo, give me milk first or maybe to himself, and then to me, because I asked him first. But instead the Prophet peace be upon him gave him the milk to the other, so habits that are with him. So the first one drank, and he kept drinking until he was fooled. And the second one kept drinking until it was full. Now what are the
other saying, I was thinking the milk is going to run out, I'm not going to have anything but I can't say anything because the prophets of Allah sent me now the respective the third person, the fourth person, and then he goes, it was just me in the province of Allah to send them left. And I'm thinking, well, I might as well just turn back, there's nothing left, I'll look in the ball and still fool. So can a lot. And then the Prophet I send them, I wanted to give it to him. Instead, he said, You drink it. So I drank a little bit, because I didn't want to waste it. I said, Hey, also Lola. And then he said drink again, since but, but he goes drink again, don't worry, he's smiling to
the table, whatever. So he drank again. And he told him drink again and again. And again. He goes, Well, I kept drinking until I couldn't feel any more in my stomach. And I realized that the milk was spilling down my the sides of my mouth. That's how full I was. I said there are a lot. Now seriously, I can't drink anymore. So then I said I'm smarter than in a drink to is full and gave it back. And so panela that goat kept on producing much more than before. Anything that comes to us, and I'm touched was blessed, never runs out. So Panama. So that's one of the stories of the book right up. And there are many other stories on the sofa, I encourage you guys to grab a book of the
syrup, and read about a soup, but it just creates so much mercy, empathy, softness and kindness in your heart. And that is what we need. We need our softness of the heart selflessness, thinking about others, Lauren needs.
My brothers and sisters, there is no one kid that can match the unsilent Mahajan in their kindness and their lovingness. And how putting other people before themselves. My brothers and sisters in his lab, after that thing started to happen.
The professor said I made a treaty of peace with the Jews, they wrote it down. And they signed it. And he made a peace treaty between the Muslims over rules that are between them, that they have to be loyal to one another love one another support one another, all that stuff. And they all signed it. And then among the things he wrote with the Treaty of the Jews, it's really interesting to know there were several things one of the things you wrote was in the yahuda Benioff, the hood of the neighbor's, meta model, meaning, you know what, how the believers have
their own rules and laws among each other, and they are one nation. He actually said that the Jews also are one nation together, they have their own rules and their own laws among each other, just like the men have their own rules together. So as I said, I'm acknowledge that, you know, when Omar and the Jews are when they are both, they both have their their respect and their rights for, for for, for what is in between them, and neither can oppose the other no one at the moment, he can go to the Jews and impose their laws and views on them. And the Jews can impose their laws and views on them meaning, and the Jews can operate by their doctrine and have their judges in their courts by
their Torah. The Muslims have theirs by the Allah and His messenger. And among the rules, which he said was, if anybody from outside attacks either the Jews or the Muslim men of Medina, then both of them have to support each other financially.
If you have to support each other, they have to protect each other, the Jews protect from varying the Muslims protect from their end, and they are united against a common enemy. So Panama, he also said that the Muslims and the Jews, they can support each other by giving each other advice by teaching each other by interacting with each other, even by marrying from them, and to exchange and do business together, except for one thing.
When he went, there was one market that the Jews had the Jews rent. But unfortunately, there is a form of capitalism, capitalism is the closest to the Islamic business, by the way, it's the closest but it's not quite, they've stuffed up capitalism these days, it's got interest in the forms of interest in usury in and now, where the rich gets richer, and the poor get poorer. But the true capitalism, which Islam taught was that each individual had the right to accumulate wealth and make money, right, there's no communism and socialism, all that stuff. So the Jews, they had this capitalist idea, but what they used to do was that they used to also cheat in the market, they used
to betrayed the biasness to charge interest. So the problem was that and he went to that mark, and he found it wasn't that it was unfair. Instead of imposing upon the Jews of the know how to deal with interest, he said, You guys can deal with it among each other as you want, I'm not going to do anything if you don't want to. But he went and established a special market for the Muslims, and for people from outside and just can come and trade over there if they want. But the Muslims run it, this is what he literally did. He went next to the mustard.
And with his foot, he actually carved in the ground, as simple as that carved in the ground the line that way and the line that way, in the line this way, and line this way. Okay, a big a big area probably is because it's homeless, with his foot. And he said, nobody is allowed to build anything here or plant anything here. This is a place for all Muslims, and this will be your trade area, this will be your market. Everything is traded here.
And what he did was he put rules on buying and selling.
And that's what I had to look for and come down with weighed on minimum of 15. While two those are unfair in the way they weigh.
And it was a terrible, terrible warning in the Quran about that saying, Do they not know that on the Day of Judgment, they're going to stand before a law, they're going to enter Hellfire for cheating people be fair, he used to go around to that market and some of the things he established in fair trade was it passed by he's the past by the man. Look, he used to say in public, nothing was secret. So for example, if a man had once a man had a basket of apples, and another one had a basket of dates, and apples on top, were really nice. The dates on top look really nice. So what is the purpose of SLM do he used to place his hand underneath into the bottom to see the apples at the
bottom and the dates at the bottom? One time we found soggy dates at the bottom weren't as good. And so and you know, rotten apples at the bottom, and he stood up in front of everybody. This is how you This is how we establish fair trade in public, nothing is sacred. He said
your apples at the bottom are not the same as the top. Why don't you put them on the top floor so everybody can see what they're buying?
Behold, everyone. Anybody who sells and hides the photo of the food will eat a part of Hellfire on the Day of Judgment. This is what he says a lot. He was senator. So the business and trade was public. If somebody was cheating other people, you say it in public, because it's public interest. Okay. And that's the protection of people's property. So Pamela, that's how the Property Law Center traded and taught them trade and business and so on. Then there's a cap came in, and there's a guy who's paying 2.5% of your accumulated wealth over a year, which you do not need and it has to reach a certain amount. I'll give you a quick example. the fairness of Zakat, it became so fair, that by
the time of the halifa Amato, their loved one establishes a cap. There was actually no one in the entire Muslim nation which reached almost to China, who was poor enough to come and take the cat who was who, who could take care of non poor enough to do that. Everybody was a pirate, I was like it because they were earning one. But the tax system or the Zakat system in Islam is not like the tax system of any other country, especially in Australia. So for example, let me give you three people. I've met Mohammed, and
actually this might be a bit different. I've met Ali and Falcon. Okay, so I've met inherits from his parents $10 million. He inherited never worked a day in his life. He's got 10 million bucks. Ali, he's a hard worker. He's got a family to feed right and he earns $100,000 a year. Very quick example, by the end of the year has ended after 2000 bucks.
Fatima she works and she gets $100,000 a year but she's got no family or any other responsibilities financially. So after her bills or whatever it is, she's lifted $20,000 by the end of the year and use it to go on holidays. This is a cat for the first guy, hammock dresser Muhammad. Muhammad the guy first guy number one he inherited 10 million he has to pay 2.5%
Send him that annually. And you won't even affecting the guy who's got a family's earning $100,000. He hasn't reached the threshold, who's got more than 400, he's got to have $4,500 left at the end of the year, which he doesn't need for anything, right for survival and his livelihood, he doesn't pay the capital, even if you have 100,000. And the third person for dementia has 100,000. By the end of the year got 20,000 she only pays 2.5% of the 20,000. Now this type of a system eradicate poverty, and is what exactly happened at the time of Baton Rouge.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, then, after that,
after that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to face a new, terrible and terrifying news.
Now comes the laws of jihad,
political laws and laws of battle and war.
It's not because Allah wants us to fight.
A law finally was giving the Muslims the right to protect themselves, and the right to teach the religion with freedom without the fear of persecution and death as it had been so far for 14 years since Macedonia.
But let's talk about the steps of how it started. Number one, in Medina
after a few months of being in Medina,
the Muslims felt safe and secure. women felt safe they felt more privileged women, wives mothers from more privileged, especially with the habit of saying go and serve at your mother's feet. And there you will find Jenna that's the hardest it's like that.
And how daughters have a right wives have a right to inheritance how men should treat their wives every every Western security establish safety and happiness between the Muslims. Then came the news Quraysh from Makkah hasn't had enough. They thought to themselves well now they've gone to establish themselves in Medina. They're building themselves up
we're not going to let them thrive. We're gonna follow them and kill them. We're gonna destroy them. They're still at it man. And the conspire is Abuja in
Abuja a big conspire of the leaders of Mecca. So now we're back to the drawing board, but this time the Muslims are strong.
Bring it on, bring it on, the Muslim said we already but they were scared to
in Medina, there was a man by the name of Abdullah Abdullah
didn't obey Mr.
Obama innovative new saloon was from a meta and he was from the Arabs in Medina and he was about to be placed as the King or leader of the of the awesome hazards of Medina.
Until the province of Allah Selim came along and they supported him and chose him to be the leader. The result? This man want developed revenge and hatred and a grudge for the proximate Arsalan and he was the first to want him killed. Why? Because he wants the kingdom.
This man later on becomes the first hypocrites
against Muslims, the first hypocritical for the first two years he was just a normal man, he was still a mushrik worshipping idols.
So the Quraysh people sent a letter to him,
saying to him, listen,
if you support this man and his followers, what Lauren is to say, well not by God, we will come and destroy you and everybody who follows you. We will take your women, and we will steal your children, and you will never see them again. And eradicate and kill everybody like you and those who support you. So you with us or against us.
This is a familiar statement. We've heard from tyrants, even in modern days, you're with us or against us, like where's the justice? Don't worry about justice, whether this justice means what we say is just and that's the people, and these people haven't finished is still here today. So then I believe nobody said Oh, he didn't worry about the threat. He will he welcomed it. He said, Wow, this is exactly what I want. I've got support. He said, I want to kill him before you. So he went in and gathered some people and went to fight the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they carry their weapons. And one of the professor sent him to he said, Listen, come over here.
He said, you want to fight me and these people, these people, your family. Do you want to know
Establish a shed blood between brothers and families.
We will we will fight you back.
And the people that all without the love No booster No, they obviously they didn't want to. So they held back and said, Man, we don't want to fight our family brothers sisters, this is better for us we shouldn't do that. And so of the law could not go ahead. Instead of the law, no saloon, he made allegiance with the people of koresh and began to give them information about the prophets movements and the Muslims and what they do.
Later on, he becomes the first hypocrite, meaning he will say the Shahada, but only in public, but in secret is still a disbelief.
And the hypocrites become the worst thing. The worst threat for the Muslims, because they're hidden and you don't know them. You got to treat them like your own brothers and sisters, yet they are conspiring against you. An open enemy is better than a deceitful enemy or a secret enemy.
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
So the voracious news of wanting to destroy and attack the Muslims started to spread.
The province of Nova xlm heard about this, and the kurush sent a warning and the threat and a promise that we are going to get you under any circumstance, or we're going to destroy every member of the Muslim families and people.
This the prophet SAW Selim realized that they're going to have to take precautions now. So we'll sit down the first verse with Dinelli Medina ukata luminary, and
the first verse for Jihad was sent down ever fought in his life. And this is the way it goes. It has been given permission within it has been given permission to those who are being fought.
The Muslims are being fought by who, by the Americans, the Americans have the status of war, they want to keep fighting them, there was a fight and the muscles were saying, you need to protect us, let us fight back, let us fight back and I was not giving you permission, you just have to be patient. Finally Allah said it has been given permission. It's not a command. It's like as if Allah is saying, Look, I don't want war. But if you have to, now I give you permission, if you want to protect yourselves. It's a permission, not a command. You can say that Islam is trying to move away from that. Be unknown Halima and the only reason I've given you permission is only because you have
been oppressed, you have been wronged.
When alojado Muslim Latino law says and he Allah is able to give them victory. And then he continues by justifying why you gave him permission. He says I'm only giving you permission because of this. And Latino Collegium in the ad, those who have been taken or forced out of their homes, it is those I'm giving you permission behind how without just cause without rights, they've been taken out of their homes.
Only because they say a lot is our God all they said was Allah is our God and you guys took them out of their homes and killed them and tortured them
and Allah is able to give them victory. So now the first the first permission was for the people of Medina especially the migrants and with the support of the mother needs to
first was for the mahadji to fight the people of Makkah that's it no one else can never find anyone else.
So the Muslims felt relaxed but they can't fight yet.
The first bruxellois Selim did was he said okay, we're gonna have to go and make a treaty of peace with all the neighbors that we can reach between here and Mecca and between here and Sham, y between here and Mecca and between here and Sham because maca is that way Medina is here and Sham is that way the Mexicans had to go to Shan to trade. They always used to carry their trade goods on camels, and they have to pass Nia Medina and on their way to a shell. The Proxima Selim didn't want for them to establish their treaty with all those other Arabs and the Muslim gets stuck in between the understand. So the professor of cinema thought beforehand. Allah said, Well, I do not
prepare for them have what you can strength, be smart, you don't just jump in. You have to prepare your grounds. So you win, establish peace treaty and make friends with as many Arab tribes as you can this way and that way, including the Jews, but the Jews obviously secretly, you're just waiting for any chance to fight against the Property Law Center. And truly, I'd love to salute that hypocrite started to work with the Jews and the Jews worked with him. And then he would give information to the people of Mecca in secret that happened without the practice of law. Sell them now.
After they have signed treaties,
my brothers and sisters in Islam, and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to send for the first time, spice, spice. Now you might be asking, but Islam says we shall inspire.
Not in the case of war, these people want to kill the Muslims. So you're allowed to spy on them. Because you want to protect yourself from them. We're not allowed to spy on each other and spy on people who were who have nothing to do with us. You can't just go now and spy on anonymous, the neighbor This is Iran's major sin, you don't spy on one another has been spies on his wife, why spies on asthma and so on and so forth. Right?
Now you can spy. So they went out and started sending out many
expeditions groups to spy into. And if they find any caravan going with their goods in it, they can try and take the goods off them. Because what the Muslims were doing was they went to break the economic strength of America, you got to break the economic strength. And anyway, the stuff that they were taken from Makkah, a third of it, if not half of it belongs to the Mohammed God, because when they left Mecca, they wouldn't let them take their property. So in two ways, number one, they're fighting him so now the Muslims think okay, we're at war with them. So we're gonna have to go there open enemies are telling us the currency kill us. So we're gonna break the economic
strings, so they don't be able to have weaponry and stuff like that to fight us with number two.
It's half of them with the goods of the Muslims anyway, so they're technically just taking your stuff back anyway.
So as to send them out skirmishes expeditions, and there were approximately eight expeditions and skirmishes that went out. Some of them the process of arson and took part in that were called mahasi. In any any expedition or skirmish that went out with the promise of arson and being you know, they call it a husband, and the others would call SETI, just a few technical terms. One of them the first one was with Hamza, the llamando. And every time they went out, they were carrying a white flag, white flag, white flag, later on the flag became black, but it was a white flag.
many of the times they couldn't win anything. They tried to intercept caravans I tried to find information, and on the way there making peace treaties with the Arabs along the way, that's what they were doing. However, one particular expedition changed everything. And it was called,
setting yet nephila.
And this involved a man so happy by the name of our beloved No, Josh, sorry about the name Jackson those days was respectful. Okay. So he was actually the first cousin of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was his and his son, great men of the law. And he sent him out with about
it was it was in it was in Russia, second year of Asia. Does anyone remember what the month of Russia is? Remember, I told you there are four months that are home a forbidden to fighting. So they went out in Russia, just before sharp and in Ramadan. And it was towards the end of Russia, the third in a second year of engineering.
And he had 12 men with him. And h2 men had to share a cabin. And what happened in nephila was a professor Selim gave up the lies cousin a letter, and he said to him, put it in your pocket and don't read it. Don't read it until you have traveled two days,
two days north. So away from America,
Northwest, away from Canada towards schermo towards McCubbin another direction, a safe direction. And when you reach two days walking, take out the letter and read it but don't read it before that. It was absolute secrecy knows what led to notes in this letter. And truly said, I'm Ron Watanabe. When he reached two days what he opened the letter, and there it said, Now, I do not force you to do this. But now return back in the opposite direction, towards self, with self going towards the opposite of Medina towards Mecca, right to the heart where the enemies
work towards that and find out any information you can. Why did they keep it a secret, because if anybody found out that we're gonna kill those Muslims, and they were gone, not even the people within were allowed to know, but they were noblemen. Up to this point, every expedition, every skirmish that was sent out was only from the mohajir in the madonie people don't saw didn't take part yet. Only the Mahajan was taking part in this because they said we'll protect you at a school of law. So they weren't forced to go out and when of the law
read this letter, he looked at his friends companions and said, Look, from Sam told us to do this. So you're going through sebelah
you're going to death. So if you're ready to die, come with me and I won't force you. That's it, the guy into the hot end. All of them said, we will go with you How dare you stay behind to death we go. They went in, and on the way south of Navajo Carson. And another person was with him, I think, was a myth that they lost their cannon and they had to stay behind. So then it was 10 people. When they arrived there saw one of the koresh leaders or men, he had a bit of merchandise and Calvary, and I saw with them only about three or four men, how diverse it was components, that were coming into spy, we're coming to find out information, but he was a caravan that can serve us that can help the
Muslims that when thinking about themselves, about the Muslims, who can take that and help the Muslims prepare to protect themselves and will help the whole Muslim community in any way, you know, half of it sell stuff anyway. What should we do? Should we attack them and take it?
Or should we let them go? Why is he asking? It was the last day of Russia and Russia peramuna to fight it's not an.
Again, if we let them go, they're going to enter Mecca and all that stuff. And if we attack them, now we get to win it. What are we going to do? What are we going to do what I'm going to do? They made the final decision to attack. They killed a couple of them then took a couple hostage, and the other ones fled with a message and they took all the merchandise and came back.
When they got to the profits of the line, he was selling the assassin and became angry and upset and very nervous. He said Oh no.
I did not order you to fight. It's the month of heroin in order to fight in the month of Russia in a heroin festival. I did not order you to do this. And the news got to market and this was the best media for them. The markets took hold of it and I said look at these Muslims.
They're hypocrites. they contradict their own book, they contradict their own message. Look what they've done. They've contradicted all their honor and everything. And they went out with exaggerating, manipulating.
That's what manipulators do. They hold on to one thing and offend, they're out with them. And they forget their own faults. Right. But this is sensationalizing how the media works these days if they want to demonize people.
Now, the settler thought, Man, this is justified. I mean, I can't get out of this there, right? I mean, the wrong people.
It was the wrong place the wrong time.
And he's caught the promises and got a bit nervous about this. Until the last panel data is sent down. The verse
is totally unfair. And last minute, diala is in Suitland federal suit of Baccarat. I'm not sure Allah has said. Where's Luna Khan.
Sharon hora. And I asked you concerning the month that is forbidden,
cool. detail and fee Are we allowed to fight in it because the Muslims they fought their whole fee? Can you say fighting in it is a major sin.
It's a major sin. You've done the wrong thing. Then Allah said, was sought to answer reading.
However, turning people away from the path of Allah not letting them embrace the Islam and torturing them and killing them. What Raj 111, Southern Sabina, Iran and preventing people from going to the message of Iran they were preventing Muslims from coming they're doing that on Ron net or
otherwise that killed them was Roger Emily he Minho and taking its own people out of it, their own people, you took them out of their own home cupboard or in the law, it is a greatest sin to a lot when fitness to a shed dominated cotton and this should come his fitness, this oppression and this poofer and this all what you are doing is a greatest sin. Then they killing of what they did and shut them off. And then the last time he said systems and give them victory. This turned the whole table around from the demand. And what this did was that the performer of Mecca, they felt
the they felt that it so well. These Muslims have now gotten power. They took care of animals, they took hostages, they took you know, they killed them. They sent them back with a message and they were victorious. We're gonna have to do something man. We have to do something. So the kuffaar started to get really nervous and lift up their power and their strength. Then and I'll finish it here. Then there was a caravan.
The caravan of Abba Sophia, for any of you to watch the film, the message or whatever the former series will know the story of Sophia and the leader of kurush. He had a huge caravan. The biggest
caravan Ava was carrying almost half of the wealth of maca. He was going to share. He heard about the Muslims
and that they wanted to go and take that caravan. Then he turned another direction. Now, this was the start of what caused the Battle of
next week insha Allah. I will talk about that caravan and how it led up to the Battle of better and the events of the first battle in the history of Islam of good versus evil. The Battle of weather next week in Charlotte, I thank you for listening, Salama and Amina Mohammed while earning he was on the edge marine
