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

My brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:23 --> 00:01:05

Today, we are continuing with the story and the lessons from the life of the Prophet salado settler. Lesson number 26. Lesson number 26. For those of you who haven't been coming regularly, you'll have to look back on the lessons before you can find them on my Facebook page, if you've got it, and insha Allah, I'm setting up a YouTube channel for it. But I'd like to edit it a little bit and get it really shallow. But that's not now later on the show long as for now, if you want to catch up to the last lessons, you can just go on my Facebook page. It's the only place that I could really put on live here for other people to to listen and learn around the world and the people who can't make

00:01:05 --> 00:01:44

it here. So it's not to promote my Facebook page. It's just the most convenient thing for me brothers and sisters. Okay. Believe me or don't, I do not care, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Now we are up to the last part, the end of the barrel have offered. And today inshallah, I'm going to continue with a little bit of what happened afterwards, with lessons that we are deriving from an insurer. But we have some brothers and sisters, all the ones who are telling me Why are you giving stories in the masjid let the stories be at home? Or how are they going to benefit from telling us stories that have happened 2500 years ago, this is really something that I cannot disagree with

00:01:44 --> 00:02:09

more. It's totally unacceptable that we don't talk about the CEO of the province of arson that is the what we learn from, and we won't know the future and how we should live unless we go back to the past. And secondly, children come to the masjid all the time. They're coming here. So we're going to leave it for home while we pray the man and about a third of the court

00:02:10 --> 00:02:47

is talking about the Battle of better the better Local Code, the Battle of thunder, the name, the conquering of Mecca, and so on and so forth. And with the Persians, it's full of the court and we say that we don't recite it in the message of the day, when we pray in everything is relevant to us. It just depends on how much time we have to get the lessons out of now I have to say the stories first. So you know, the background and there are people who don't know, there are people who converted to Islam had no idea. And secondly, we have young people who don't know the true heroes, I want you to know the true heroes. We don't want you to know, just you know, I mean, it's Spider Man

00:02:47 --> 00:03:25

and Superman, Batman all that is nice to look at, but they're not really people. And they don't represent anything that must come into our lives. It's just values matter in the name of Hollywood. But what we want, we want to teach you the real heroes brothers and sisters, I see a lot of young people and because of the school holidays, when I was about your age back in high school, you seven years, I was mistreated a lot by Muslims and non Muslims at high school a lot. And you know, I tried to avoid some of them I didn't want to tell them about that anymore. I was bullied and bullied because of my religion not because I was weak not because I was a nobody or anything like that. I

00:03:25 --> 00:04:01

mean, I didn't dress as nice as then. Except one day I came in some editors, parents, editors, Latino nurses to get a couldn't afford the real editors was to get the fake out of this. All right to get fake and all the kids know what's fake and what's not. Right. Some kids want to so obsessed with it with the you know, the the brand names that some of them used to steal was the gun shops and steal just so that the other kids can look accepted. And so they can belong. Brothers and sisters, we don't have to belong in anything that's wrong, especially not because of brand names or because you got to have a certain look, get that out of your head and become stronger. And people will

00:04:01 --> 00:04:39

respect you for that. So I was bullied because I was just like prayer. And I like to I like to read for and I you know, I didn't I didn't go around. I didn't have them except to have girlfriends because they all have girlfriends and boyfriends and some of the Muslims themselves, the ones that hurt me the most. And it's not just about me not come to dinner, I don't care as I grew up, I got stronger with that. But the Muslims themselves don't want it to fit in and please the then almost the mace you know, they just start to be like them. And they started to tease me the most because I'm different. But being different is not bad. Sometimes you're different in a good way. We're

00:04:39 --> 00:04:56

almost obscene and a more brings around you the proper friends and environment that you know, the way you think is what you will attract and almost always guide you to the right path and the right friends around you. And he will always choose and help you choose the right friends from the wrong friends and make a strong doing as you get older.

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

So the what made me

00:05:00 --> 00:05:16

Strong in that time was learning about these great heroes, the sahabas of proxy Lawson, the companions of the Prophet. You know what made it even better? That one of us in the in the seven, and the eight was only 13 and 1412, something like that.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:21

I used to think these companions were all like my dad's image.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

But when I learned about Sierra,

00:05:26 --> 00:05:33

I discovered that at least half of them were my age, meaning 1213 1415 1617. That's

00:05:34 --> 00:05:38

the majority of them. Not the majority, at least half of them.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:44

And then they've done that with young companions, and some older

00:05:45 --> 00:06:21

and then you can relate to them a lot. And you can't relate unless you know their stories. Yeah, I know. 1400 years ago they existed. But Mark, my words will lie. For those who know the stories Well, you will think that they are living in our time they are fit to live in our time and I believe there are non Muslims orientalist historians who wrote about Islam, not orientalist historians who spoke the truth about Islam. And what they say is that these companions of Muhammad peace be upon him. If what I remember reading from one of one of those stories, I forgot his name, this author said, If 10 of them were here in our time, they can potentially solve the problems of the world.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:32

There were amazing people. And although we're talking 1001 days ago, when you hear the stories, we can make it relationship a little bit to our time, there was so advanced in your thinking that

00:06:33 --> 00:07:02

all the stuff that people were backward in the Arabs were backward in his stuff, the Persians who were considered the superpower of the world that were backward, the Romans who are today the lot of Europeans, Americans, Australians, British, they're the descendants of the Byzantium, the Romans, they were all backward in those times, none of them could match the advancement of the prophet SAW Selim and his companions, none of them could match it. They looked at as some you know, people who came down from another planet onto Earth.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:41

There was something amazing even till today we learn from them, cognitive memory, there are a lot of for example, till today, there are lots of warfare is like Muslims or non Muslims, who, over the years have learned the strategy of Holocaust. Nobody does no harm in war till today they use it. So my brothers and sisters, these companions we're talking about we're not just ancient people now. So let's go through it and show you what happened after the Battle of Horford. Last week I spoke about in detail what happened in the battle hood. So I'm not I can't repeat it, you know, listen to as I said, last week's lecture. So we're gonna move on. Now, some of you may understand what I'm saying

00:07:41 --> 00:07:49

very well, some of you make sort of catch bits and pieces because you weren't here last week. So I have to move forward. And

00:07:50 --> 00:07:54

so a lot of the sahabas were killed and massacred and slayed and

00:07:56 --> 00:08:35

they were all mutilated. Their eyes were cut out, their ears were cut off, their noses will cut off, their bodies will cut open their arms, their legs, they were mutilated. And the Arabs never did something like that before. This was the first time and they did it with the bodies of the Muslims. There were 70 of the Rajah Hadean, who died, who are with the prophets of Allah azza wa jal has means those who fought and strived in the course of the last panel data to protect the property house Law Center, and to protect the stand and defend the Muslims. And obviously there will be attacked all the time, all the time, persecuted Muslims never start wars, never. And the Muslims

00:08:35 --> 00:09:08

then had to defend and how to protect, uphold for this religion, otherwise, the homosassa lamb was gonna go and there will be notice that for no one be taught the right way. And even he's the Messenger of Allah, Allah sent him down whether people like it or not, and he will ultimately is going to make him victorious. And surely it lasted till now 1400 years later, and still we have the core animals without the challenge of the dog and kind of the the brothers and sisters in Islam. These Muslims were mutilated, and among them was hamzat of the alarm and the line of a law it was called Isobel ball.

00:09:11 --> 00:09:30

And he was the one who protected the processor and stood up for him the problem peace be upon him loved him tremendously when he saw him on the ground, mutilated, cut up, completely couldn't it couldn't tell us. He was Hamzah. The processor sent him a cancer cell and he cried so badly. They started to whimper started making noises.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:38

says that I never saw them like that before. And it was the hardest time upon me to see the progress or

00:09:39 --> 00:09:50

the progress of seven I was so hurt that he had that he said, if a lot gives me a chance to get these guys in another battle. I will mutilate their boys and cut up

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

double of what they did to us double

00:09:55 --> 00:09:58

but even the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was still learning

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


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

Law was teaching him the process and justifiably said, Yeah, I'll do what they did. And Allah said, Okay, listen,

00:10:09 --> 00:10:35

if you want to take revenge, that only take revenge, an iPhone, I don't do more, like you said, double don't do that, you're gonna have to take revenge, you have to do exactly equal. You can't, for example, kill 140 because they killed 70 you can't mutilate $140 70, no losses, if you ever going to take revenge in warfare, then it has to be equal in warfare.

00:10:36 --> 00:11:20

And then Allah says, however, if you are patient and persevering, you don't do that level of quality, that's better for those who are patient, be patient, the Messenger of God was below. Again, Allah says must be about five, four times and he decided in is versus what was below one, our server was better one, our sub broker in their in their vacation and messenger of God and your patience, remember, is only for the sake of a law. Don't take revenge, we're going to say, don't take revenge because you're angry. Don't take revenge because he's your uncle, and you are feeling for him. I notice a lot. It's that's what the verse is saying. Allah is saying, when you are patient and

00:11:20 --> 00:11:41

persevering, then you are being persevering for Allah for the sake of Allah know what a Muslim doesn't. A Muslim doesn't fight or destroy for their own self. A Muslim is always careful and cautious. When you stand up, stand up and injustice, and only under the rules and the limits which allow places for you.

00:11:44 --> 00:12:13

Remember what I told you that when I was younger, when I was in you, 70, right? The Muslims themselves, believe me. And no one hurt me more than the Muslims, not the non Muslims because you expect that the non non Muslims might hate the Muslims or non Muslims may not know anything about Muslims. And in fact, I'll tell you something, the closest people to me, unfortunately, were some of the non Muslims became a friend that time and they heard about the snare and they'll tell me that one day shout out tell them a story about when you were a kid who converted to Islam, because I told him is that

00:12:14 --> 00:12:22

he did some trick with a coin and I kept guessing it and I get a lot of telling me so if you want that power, you should become a Muslim. And he did. He became a Muslim for about a week. I

00:12:24 --> 00:13:08

still remember his name, his name is Craig. Craig, if you hear this become Muslim, brothers and sisters in Islam, the point is Muslims among each other, if we are against each other, if we hurt each other, if we backed by one another, if we snitch one another I think that young boys and girls understand I'm saying when I say snitch as a teacher, we hear the students always say snitching, you snitch to me, every nobody likes teaching, when you give your mate anything, right. So a Muslim doesn't do that to the Muslim or they advise their together. If the Muslim however does something that's going to harm other people. You have to snitch if they don't take your advice. The prophet

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

SAW the light, I said and said,

00:13:11 --> 00:13:22

support your brother, whether he is the oppressor, or the one being oppressed, meaning if he's doing the wrong, or someone's doing wrong to them healthy. They said,

00:13:23 --> 00:13:27

We know how to help him if someone's doing wrong to him or her, you know, we defend them stand up.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

But when they're doing wrong to other people having a supportive

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


00:13:34 --> 00:13:44

that brings his mates to school to bash up another group of Muslims. You know, why? How can we support them? He said, by stopping them

00:13:45 --> 00:13:46

by stopping him.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:53

From their oppression, you got to stop your friend, you got to stop your Muslim brother and sister from their oppression. That's how you

00:13:56 --> 00:14:04

sometimes you may need to fight them off. If they're just going to become violent for no reason, then you fight it off until they stop and then you make friends with between them.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

Even if you have to do that.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:09

Even if it's my own brother.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:18

He's running someone else to stand in front of you. It's not gonna listen to us to get violent and then he's in the wrong. I have to slap him.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:24

Wake up. Why? Because I don't want my brother to go to * fire.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:33

I don't want my brother to be judged on a day of judgment for whether it be for the blood of Muslim or non Muslim in wrong.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35


00:14:36 --> 00:14:41

A Muslim cannot even half an ad. If the ant is not harming him

00:14:44 --> 00:14:49

or cut off the branch of the tree. If the tree is not in a way, it's no

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

later than a life of a human. A Muslim whose blood honor and wealth is more sacred.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

The carpet itself. Did you know that so my brothers and sisters in Islam, if we don't change our attitude towards each other,

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

then always expect

00:15:13 --> 00:15:18

to be the lowest of the low, you're going to always fail, and nobody will respect you. And then citizen

00:15:19 --> 00:15:25

of the world helping you helping you do your part. You are now living here in Melbourne in Australia.

00:15:26 --> 00:15:31

You're not in Syria and on Palestine, you know, we make up for them. We don't forget about their,

00:15:32 --> 00:15:40

their worries in our house. But what can you do right now? alone to put you there? If you can do something, but you are here?

00:15:41 --> 00:15:43

What is your God? What can you do within your power?

00:15:45 --> 00:16:07

I believe that you're obsessed all the time talking about Muslims of the world. And I think that's important to know the state of the Muslims don't get me wrong. But spending all our energy, all our power, just continuing to talk while we neglect ourselves so that our parents, our brothers and sisters, our relatives, our neighbors, our duties to a lot smarter right now.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:52

We don't make something hot on holiday if it suits us, or foreign for our ego. And we don't go on social media and spend our energy and time cutting and pasting stuff, just so that we can prove someone wrong. We want people to be right. We want the Muslims to be right. If I'm wrong, and hamdulillah send someone to make me understand my wrong assumption except that you never make it about yourselves. Never make it about yourself. And since I said that, I'd like to make a very quick little point here. We all heard about the fight that's coming up in UFC between foveon and McGregor. Isn't that right? Everybody knows about that. We're all hyped up. Now this hyping up business

00:16:52 --> 00:17:23

brothers and sisters. I think it's because Muslim safe Habib is a Muslim is a Muslim, he doesn't like alcohol doesn't like wine, it loves us a lot, which is excellent. He's a great role model in that and hamdulillah that is the role of the young people in there. However, my brothers and sisters, you know, bashing each other in a rink in such violence is still foreign minister. It's hard All right, bashing each other in a cage or in a ring and covering the face which Allah created is cut off. Okay.

00:17:24 --> 00:18:14

And a lot of Muslims are looking at it as if Habib wins then it's a victory for Islam like Islam has won. Now Islam has not won anything by winning in a ring in a match where they both get paid and see you later he gets rewarded for showing Islam that's a separate issue. But for us is this one is coming down to the the victory of Islam is by someone clobbering someone else in a cage or in a ring is that having slam wins brothers and sisters Okay, so when I saw Luca in their in their your patience and perseverance is only for law of laws, rules, whether it's Muhammad Ali, or any of them, he even said in itself, God don't care. God don't care if I beat treasure in the rink. He said that.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:20

doesn't care about that. But he cares about his us.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:39

What are you doing in your home? What are you doing with your family? What are you doing with your salad? What are you doing with your circuit? What are you doing with your time? What are you doing with your eyes? How are you using the body that Allah created for your muscles? How are you using them? Are you earning your wealth from How long are you spending?

00:18:40 --> 00:18:45

Are you using your time wisely? Or not? What are you doing?

00:18:46 --> 00:18:49

So my brothers and sisters focus on that.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:52

My brothers and sisters in Islam

00:18:54 --> 00:18:57

something really amazing after the Battle of what happened.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:05

The archers who disobeyed the prophet SAW Selim and as a result of them, the bodies got mutilated.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:13

Allah subhana wa Taala did two things. He told the Prophet sallallaahu Selim that mutilated bodies is horrible.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:28

over some scholars said in warfare, if you want to take revenge by doing exactly what they did to you, that's okay. But it is better not to do. However mutilating bodies is haram in war.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

It's haram to mutilate the bodies of dead people.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:42

Because the body that has died, yes, it was an enemy before. It was a character before. But when the soul has come out,

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

what's left

00:19:46 --> 00:19:57

the same body. It was created by a law. That body now has gone back belongs to of law. It no longer belongs to that dirty soul. The soul is out.

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

We have no rights.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:05

to abuse or mutilate the body even it's the body of the enemy.

00:20:07 --> 00:20:19

The enemy's bodies, only a few that only about 20 or 30 that died in a battle of the kuffaar. The Muslims buried there, the Muslims buried there. That's what Muslims do.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

Are they given back to the enemy

00:20:24 --> 00:20:28

because the body belongs to all. Which brings me to something even more important.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:35

harming your body is also harmful. If in warfare, harming the body of the enemies

00:20:38 --> 00:20:43

when they did, harming your own body while they were living, is double have.

00:20:46 --> 00:21:18

I'm not gonna give examples because I don't want to put people off here and might think that I'm judging them. I don't know what your circumstances are. But I'm just saying general brothers, sisters. Anything that causes serious harm to your body and mutilated is how some people deliberately harm themselves, because they say I'm depressed or I've got anxiety, so they cut themselves, they burn themselves. This is how our brothers and sisters need to repent to a loss. Or somebody kills themselves they commit suicide because of brothers and sisters in Islam. Suicide is a major sin. And the person who commits suicide has committed murder.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:40

Who have you murdered yourself. You can't repent anymore because you're there. And the law says this person goes to Hellfire killing himself over and over again according to the Sahaba until Allah decides to forgive them. Now, everyone has this circumstance, some people don't know that suicide is haram, some people have just been driven to madness, and craziness. I remember

00:21:41 --> 00:21:53

a long time ago, a sister who was just about 16, she jumped off the off a bridge up in New camp road. And we find out that a lot of the story was when I remember something about being

00:21:55 --> 00:22:04

abused, sexually abused by a family member. This is happening in our Muslim community sometimes. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, we don't know the fate of that person.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:07


00:22:10 --> 00:22:19

so my brothers and sisters, I thought he was talking to me, brothers and sisters in Islam. Sometimes people do this stuff. And almost nobody knows.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:22

Anyway, brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:22:24 --> 00:22:26

harming oneself is a major sin.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:34

So we move on and show them what they're either. And we say the prophets Allah sent them did not punish

00:22:35 --> 00:22:43

the people who were on the mountain them the arches, instead of the other said

00:22:44 --> 00:22:45

30. Now

00:22:55 --> 00:22:56

fast forward

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

30 there isn't a better worker

00:23:06 --> 00:23:07


00:23:08 --> 00:23:23

whatever Kini Allah said. So it is only from the mercy of Allah that you were able to be gentle with the archers, and some of the Muslims who ran away, some of the Muslims ran away, they've got a lot of hope. Did you know that

00:23:25 --> 00:23:45

Allah made the promises of gentle towards that he didn't go and abuse them. He didn't go and swept them, he didn't go and insult them. He didn't go and expose them. He didn't go and say you deserve punishment. He didn't say any of that. He lifted and was gentle with them, and said, Look, you know, found an excuse or reason for them to feel the way they felt.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:50

But over the last night data had already revealed in a parameter the wrong

00:23:51 --> 00:24:02

alert and said to him, if you were to be harsh in your approach, and your heart was hard towards them, they will run away from you, you would have lost them all.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:10

So now part of them and forgive them, part of them and forgive them.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:43

Partly, what are the left side pardon me forget because the two different meanings. to pardon someone means that you remind them of their mistake, but you don't punish them. You let them go but you remind them of the mistake. You should have never done anything that was wrong and you feel bad about it says now go and to forgive means to also not mentioned. So a lot hold him. Part of them and forgive them both. demolition it again it happened very gone. Now forgiving him pardoning doesn't mean you forget

00:24:45 --> 00:24:58

to forgive and to Parliament doesn't mean you forget. It means you learn from that lesson. And not forgetting doesn't mean you don't forget to take revenge. Some people misunderstand. I say I forgive but I don't forget

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

You know what I mean by that, right? I say I forgive, but I've done forget meaning I'm going to get you back. So what does forgiving me know, forgiving and forgetting means you forgive, because you want to make it easy on yourself, you let go of what the pain is on your chest. And you don't forget meaning you learn from that lesson next time you approach this person differently, you don't trust them with this, you don't trust them with that when you approach them in different ways whether you need to limit your content in some way. So a lot of other topics are said and forgive and part of them. And once you make a decision rely on the law Allah loves those around him You have to rely on

00:25:34 --> 00:25:47

this kind of data always my brothers and sisters in Islam and so the Muslims came back and the last monitor Allah citizen look for and he says one of the risotto como la is gonna be in

00:25:48 --> 00:26:14

the evening is a tsunami evening. Last night gala mentions in Surah Al anon, the entire battle of the law said, a law truly was truthful to you, when he made you able to kill them to kill them in in in war, they were coming to kill you so you were able to kill them. Instead, you were able to defend yourselves and kill them. The law says, however, once

00:26:15 --> 00:26:17

you started to lose,

00:26:19 --> 00:26:30

it was because you conflicted among yourselves. In the Battle of what what did the Muslims do? They conflicted among themselves. The archers came down to survey the province of

00:26:31 --> 00:26:44

the Muslim start to fight each other southern killed each other accidentally. Some of them blamed one another, some of them started running away. Some of them stayed where they are. Some of them said I give up, I get to put my weapons down with the Prophet died, some of them rebuked the others.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:47

You dispute it.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:57

That was the reason why they had to survey the proximal data center. And they disputed over what

00:26:58 --> 00:27:12

over what did the arches come off the hill and over what did they dispute? You will find that the main cause of what was the dunya the worldly entertainment, the materialism

00:27:14 --> 00:27:45

materialism because the archer said this get the spoils of war, we gotta get our stuff. We got some weapons, some of these some that. And I justified themselves getting off the hill. How am I saying none of the profit meant that when the war is happening, we don't come up the hill. But now he knows like it's been 20 minutes, 30 minutes. And it didn't just come off the hill immediately. They did talk among each other and they tried to sort of work it out. But unfortunately, the designs took over and only two or three stayed on the hill, the rest of them went after the worldly possessions.

00:27:48 --> 00:28:03

So unless it was late to and you disobeyed me by the Moroccan metal spoon, you disobey the Property Law Center, after he showed you meaning after he went after the before what happened, the spoils of war started to show.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:08

You saw it, and they loved it. The dunia credited to

00:28:09 --> 00:28:17

minko many pluses when he discovered that a monkey, there are those who are after the union woman command.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:26

And there are those among you who want the hereafter. Now, I'm not saying that I discovered this is just a language spoken

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

to tell us that I must know that. He put it through a trial. And he always puts us through trials brothers and sisters, whether it be war, whether it be in death, with there being loss of something, whether it be sickness, whether it be someone who has hurt you in some way, whether it be a divorce, or there'll be a someone who has betrayed you in business, whether it be your children dying, whether you be you know, whatever it may be you don't get a job with anything like that.

00:28:52 --> 00:29:33

A lot is testing. Some of you want to do yourself a favor. How many of us would fight with our brothers and sisters over worldly possessions and how many of us will try to resolve it with Islam, which is good. And how many of us would sharpen our teeth against our own brothers and sisters when the world comes in to the hearts? How many of us for example, if your father died and a mother died, we will fight with our own brothers and sisters over the inheritance which they belong. How many of us will fight over anything that is worldly when it comes down to the crush? So almost wanted to put them through that battle? And Allah said some of you wanted to do this on your deathbed. And there

00:29:33 --> 00:29:39

must be a beautiful Hadith of the prophets of Allah. The Prophet peace be upon him said there will come a time in the future.

00:29:42 --> 00:29:46

There will be trials after trials of good line even a lady Muslim.

00:29:47 --> 00:29:49

Lady Muslim, like

00:29:50 --> 00:29:56

I think I said a little bit wrong. He said like dark black clouds in us in the dark sky in the night.

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

Used to be

00:29:59 --> 00:30:00

a person is

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

I'm not a believer in the morning.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:10

But by the end of the night, okay. And among many in the night by the morning is a careful, bear odd

00:30:11 --> 00:30:15

because they sold the religion for a little bit of this world.

00:30:17 --> 00:30:46

They sold their religion for this world, whatever skill you have my brother and sister, whatever knowledge you have, whatever power you have, that Allah has given you, you might have a skill in sports, you might have a skill in that school, you might have a skill in making creating things, you might have a skill and whatever it may be, man or woman. First, before you go out to earn the worldly gain from it. Think about how can I use this in a way that benefits might mean you have to work it out, first of all,

00:30:48 --> 00:30:54

some of us who might get into a type of job where it requires us to do heroin things.

00:30:55 --> 00:31:31

Right. And sometimes we can avoid it. Sometimes we can't avoid it. If you have to work and everything's like this, have you worked at Safeway because you want to get in some well, and sometimes maybe you have to clean the wine area. Now that job in general is kinda it involves some harm, but necessities dictate exceptions you can be forgiven for, because it's necessary. But when I go for a job, knowing that I'm going to be involved in a lot of harm, the harm is more. And I do it for the money. That's when we become like the archers who go off the hill. Because we want the dunya and we set out the foot. We sell our Deen for a good

00:31:34 --> 00:32:13

samaritan sisters a beautiful statement that says a metaphor that the Sahaba they used to put their Deen on their heads like, like a crown and the dunya in their hands. So when the crown was nice, they dropped what's in their hand to fix the crowd, when the dean came out a place that droplets in adonia to fix their Dean, obviously, within reason, within reason, I don't want people now to go on leave their jobs and leave this home leave this and leave that because there is haraam almost in everything in our life. You know, you can't avoid all of these are minor things that forgives you what I'm talking about is when the heroin overcomes more heroin than heroin. And when you're not in

00:32:13 --> 00:32:29

a necessity, you gotta be very careful. Sometimes you might be a lawyer, for example. All right, and you intend to work for the help of Muslims. But instead, you might see that a Muslim is taking another Muslim to court for something that is wrong. They accused them for example, let's say, of being

00:32:30 --> 00:33:01

I don't know something really good, and I want to give examples of something really bad. And then a Muslim boy comes up and says, I'm going to defend this thing and stand up and, you know, and the court to defend the client for a bit of money to try and make the other Muslim who is innocent be accused of something which is heinous. And how long are they gonna be very careful with that sometimes in business to sell out an agreement that you have with your brother or your sister because you can get a little bit more money if you go the other way. A lot of Muslims Allah says,

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


00:33:05 --> 00:33:10

Allah says, many business partners, they betray each other,

00:33:11 --> 00:33:35

except him Allah has mercy upon but to be very careful around the sisters not to lose our hereafter for the grave is waiting for us and everything that is not when the life is over. So my dear brothers sisters are number one. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to bury the Muslims, he started to get the mosque. There were too many Muslims who had died.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:45

And he started together, every two or three, they memorized very similar amounts of the Quran and he would bury them together.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:50

He would unite in the same grave.

00:33:52 --> 00:33:53

Two or three bodies

00:33:54 --> 00:33:58

who had similar memorization is of the poor and

00:33:59 --> 00:34:04

I want to make a point here those memorizing the Koran in those days isn't.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:21

It's not like today, memorizing the Quran today is an is an amazing thing for anybody to do. Since I'm Muslim, it says that a child memorizes the Quran and applies what they had memorized in their life, on the Day of Judgment along

00:34:22 --> 00:34:54

with their two parents, and will raise their mother and father above everyone to see puts upon and just put upon them a crown and a cloak made of the finest silk and a crown made the best gems that it lights up more than the sun upon all the people for them to see. It will be said these are the parents of this child and memorize the Quran. But the memorizing of the Quran has a condition. The condition is brothers and sisters, that you apply what you memorize. But then someone may come to me and say I'll put that I've memorized a lot of the Quran before and after. placegetter wrong.

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

memorizing and applying 30 that great reward memorizing

00:35:00 --> 00:35:10

is a reward on its own. Not memorizing is a simile. I mean, if you don't read the poem at all, it's a CT. You're not read the Quran even 10 out yet in a day you have to read it as a Muslim.

00:35:11 --> 00:35:15

Anyone can read it as if you recycle a whole lot about three or four times in it,

00:35:17 --> 00:35:53

whoever recites 108 in the data quality So here, you will be written for the day in the last record as a person who was remitted, who was a member of a law firm who is remembering a loss of data and does not recite even 10am will be written in your records of that in that day, as a whorfin. One has forgotten the last one. So be very careful my brothers and sisters, we read the Quran in order to apply and to learn in our lives. Their memorizes of the Quran, no days were the greatest scores. Because you know, the Arabs understood the Arabic is not correct. When they recited the Quran, they knew exactly what it was telling them, and they became the greatest score. So when we say the prog

00:35:53 --> 00:36:14

rock, the memorizes in those days, it means that we're also the greatest scores. And the ones who apply to the most say, buried the scholars who were similar in knowledge and memorization together, brothers and sisters in Islam, then after that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to Medina. And what did he find? He find the women and

00:36:15 --> 00:36:42

the men was said, Everybody had lost their husbands, someone had lost their brother or their sister. Actually, I'm sorry, brothers, most of the men and the ones who died, their brother or their child, or their uncle or their father or their friend from sauce and found them waiting and he allowed the women to wear welding is like when somebody starts to say words that are not really appropriate such as Why did this happen? Oh, someone's early.

00:36:43 --> 00:36:57

And sometimes they may hit their head in their face. To that point, it was allowed, it was harder. And the professor sent him said, Everybody is waiting for someone who they have lost of their family. But there is no one waiting for my uncle has it?

00:36:59 --> 00:37:16

on his mind, so the women who heard this, they just merely heard from a distance from another presence is processing them sitting on was waiting for Hamza. And suddenly a large number of the women of Medina as if the whole woman of Medina gathered outside the house, and I started to wail for Hanson.

00:37:17 --> 00:37:32

Why did they do that? out of love for the Prophet salado center. See, just merely hearing him just saying he didn't even command anywhere. Just because he saw some of them was a little bit sad and I was waiting for him was that they all responded just to please the process. Nobody was there.

00:37:33 --> 00:37:39

this day and age, we use something up across our sentence words, to try to justify to suit our desires. Some of us

00:37:40 --> 00:37:46

some people say to me, especially the young ones. So you know, I know that the Prophet said this is heroin, but like, how, how long is it?

00:37:48 --> 00:37:54

Some said, I know this may make me go to hellfire. I know that I can accept that model. I accept that. But like For how long?

00:37:55 --> 00:37:57

Will I get it afterwards?

00:37:59 --> 00:37:59


00:38:00 --> 00:38:05

at the seeds. Anyone who's never done a ship can you know there's preyed on an awful be safe from the fire.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:07

At least

00:38:09 --> 00:38:34

one day to a was like 1000 News one day to a lot. It's like 1000 years when they open and obika can elfi sensitivity meta Dune is one day to about 1000 views of what you count. So imagine going to Hellfire for one minute? How long would that really be? for an hour? It'll be months. Can you put your hand over a candle, stick it up to the flame on top for a minute like that.

00:38:36 --> 00:38:37

And the person says, Well, at least I'll get out of

00:38:40 --> 00:39:20

them said, always work with your goal being the highest places of Paradise and dose always asked the lawful filters. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, just merely hearing that the professor sent him what to send them to well for Hamza, all of them came and responded. And then Allah, Allah forbid the Wailing, and peroxisomal said No more waiting after this caught on to hit your face into you know, take your hair out and to say things that are cut off. When someone has passed away. You have to say in a lab or in a garage, to a load belongs to Him we shall return. Yes. He said yes. He goes through a time of mourning. That's normal from them. That's normal for any human being actually, but

00:39:20 --> 00:39:45

to say words such as why God Why did you do that? I didn't deserve this. Why did this outcome now what have I ever done? This is this is this shows that you this shows like a defiance to almost anything for school for a person who does not want to be there. My brothers and sisters in Islam, then, if that was bad enough, the Arab tribes, there were many Arab tribes. There were many Arab tribes there were over 30 Arab tribes, not

00:39:46 --> 00:39:59

all of them heard of the news of the Muslims be kind of defeated, but not defeated. They were kind of defeated but not defeat. The Muslims Yeah, they didn't really win the war, but they didn't really lose.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:19

The bad Why? Well, the objective of pradesh was to kill the problem. How did they kill it? No. They wanted to stop Islam. They stopped it. Now, they wanted to take their revenge. Do they really take revenge? No, it's all family upon family.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:28

The Muslim did they really lose? No, Islam is still going, especially when Allah sent down the verse one, seven.

00:40:34 --> 00:40:38

Do not assume that those who were killed in the cause of a law that they really did, but

00:40:43 --> 00:40:52

they are actually living within law, a law being provided and blessed and given provision. So the Muslim said,

00:40:53 --> 00:41:15

if we did, we're in general, if we're alive, processes among us and is still going on. So the other Arab tribes, they got angry. And at the same time, they thought this is an opportunity for us to beat the Muslims, because they lost that battle, they're in mourning, maybe we can defeat them, and a parent started to get together to conspire against annihilating the Muslims.

00:41:17 --> 00:41:18

How much time for

00:41:20 --> 00:41:20

five minutes.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:35

So take two minutes before the show.

00:41:36 --> 00:41:42

The purpose of the levada center understood this. And so the Muslims are always on the lookout.

00:41:44 --> 00:42:21

There were little battles happening here in their tribes and send people over to kill animals would defend, then someone else would conspire and send someone over or a group of animals would defend, their muscles would go out. And notice that there's an army coming towards them and they would fight them off. This was happening, not even a month after the Battle of so there was nonstop for them to Panama from every side, the Muslims were getting bullied, they were getting persecuted. And you know, they weren't even having anybody just sitting there trying to live. They're trying to make peace with everybody. But no one was letting them brief.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:37

For what? Only because Mohammed Salah sadhana wants to teach people is there and tell them I'm a prophet of God, not forcing anyone to embrace Islam, not pressuring them, and making peace treaties with everybody. Whoever accepts except for women doesn't cause Allah will judge them.

00:42:38 --> 00:42:46

That's all it was. accept Islam or peace treaty between us. That's it. Nobody likes it. There are

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

so padam

00:42:50 --> 00:42:59

almost sit in the corner, center another person to explain to the Muslims why these people are doing that to them to someone who they thought What have we done to people? You know, so

00:43:02 --> 00:43:06

the Jews that are around you, there were Jews, the Jews now around them.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:09

And the Christians who were

00:43:10 --> 00:43:17

going to be the Romans later on are some of the Arab Christians there conspired with the Qureshi as well, and they're most likely the idolaters.

00:43:19 --> 00:43:20

Allah says they will not be pleased.

00:43:21 --> 00:43:23

Until you follow their way

00:43:24 --> 00:43:36

of saying why why am I that gives them the answer says, Listen, they just want you to do what they do. That's it. You have to be one of them. You have to say what they say you have to be Why do you have to be different?

00:43:37 --> 00:43:58

What is do you have to speak the truth? Just go with the false man go with everybody. Some people say this to us today. Sometimes we hear this. So why do you have to be so different? Man? Everybody's doing this. Why not? Everybody's listening to this. Why don't we listen? Everybody's buying this stuff. Why don't we buy it? Everybody's You know, this is the new fashion. Why don't we do it. Everybody alone

00:44:01 --> 00:44:03

can be a copycat. And

00:44:04 --> 00:44:06

when people do good, you do good when

00:44:07 --> 00:44:13

you barely just do that as well, just because you're with everyone. It's cool to do the bad thing as everybody else is doing it.

00:44:14 --> 00:44:16

When people do good, you do good. When

00:44:18 --> 00:44:31

when they do bad, just avoid their bad don't take part in it. Otherwise, we'll be one of them. You'll be one of them. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, and Muslim stands for monitor. And on values. You don't change for someone.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:33

You change for almost

00:44:34 --> 00:44:48

a change that you can get closer to improve yourself. And your happiness will never be by pleasing people, my brothers and sisters, to get that out of your head. You will never until you stand firm on proper values which I love loves.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:53

That's when when you serve your soul and you nourish your soul. That's when you'll be happy.

00:44:54 --> 00:44:56

No matter what people do to you after that.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:06

And then after that kept on speaking to the Muslims and teaching them their Deen. And what's really beautiful and ended with is that

00:45:08 --> 00:45:22

although the wars are happening, the battles people are trying to kill the messenger and the prophets and the the companions and annihilate the people of Medina, the Muslims, the prophet SAW last and then what's he doing in the meantime?

00:45:23 --> 00:46:01

He's teaching them how to live their Islam is teaching them about when you break your will, what are you doing? He's teaching them about how you should clean yourself with them as work and how you should behave on a Friday at sundown. And how you should remove your armpit hair if you've reached puberty, at least once a week, preferably, not more than 40 days is teaching them to stuff. The stuff that you think man has no time to talk about that if we embarrass people trying to kill us for some Semitism, teaching them as little stuff. He's teaching them what fasting on a Monday and Thursday does for you. He's teaching them praying the sun now what it gives you.

00:46:02 --> 00:46:07

To us, it's little, but to a lot. It's big. Because what's more important is you're living you're

00:46:08 --> 00:46:09

not fighting.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:14

That's what's most important. So that if you don't enjoy practicing customer was

00:46:16 --> 00:46:33

one of the competitors he went out to preach to one of the tribes and invited him. They said yada Sula, bring someone to us to teach us about your religion. So we sent to them 14 in that time, 14 memorizes of local and remote set up memorizes.

00:46:34 --> 00:46:39

They were scholars, they just took the parameter. So I said 42 that tribe, but

00:46:41 --> 00:46:48

unfortunately they betrayed them. They gathered on them and they killed nearly 40 of the memorizes.

00:46:49 --> 00:47:00

The person who went there to teach them the parameters stood before they achieve and achieve speed in with a spear that came into his bag outside of his stomach. You know what the Sahaba did.

00:47:02 --> 00:47:04

He said, footstool

00:47:08 --> 00:47:13

I have passed and succeeded by the Lord of the car. Meaning

00:47:14 --> 00:47:35

he went to Jamaica, the guy's gone. It just got killed and the Arabs are going what's wrong with this person since his past, because the points my brothers and sisters is not the world. The point is success in the hereafter. And your success in the world is in order to succeed in the hereafter. That's the real success

00:47:37 --> 00:47:45

except this from us and grant us understanding wisdom and keep us united and forgive us for our shortcomings in our sins. And in

00:47:48 --> 00:47:52

my show next week we continue with the Battle of

00:47:54 --> 00:47:57

daylight savings is next week.

00:47:58 --> 00:48:12

cause trouble for us problems. So insha Allah will begin at 630 will begin at 630 and finish by Mazel Tov insha Allah from next week onwards with Santa Monica

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