Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh I am currently walking in the courtyard of mystery nebari sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Today I want to impress upon the listener, the importance of the people of Medina and their contribution towards the mission of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Now we know that the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, his mission is broken up into two parts, the murky period, and the middle in a period 13 years of Makkah and 10 years of Medina
whilst the Muslims were in Makkah, the Muslims under when a lot of difficulties, a lot of persecution, Muslims are forced to migrate to embassy Nia because of the difficult circumstances in Makkah. We know that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his family was tracking the value of our poly for three long years. We know that the Prophet of Allah went to five to present the message of Islam and he was met with hostility. So it was difficult for Muslims to practice Islam in Mecca.
Things were very limited. The Prophet of Allah was constrained he was limited in terms of his mission.
So, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down relief in the form of the unsolved the people of Medina and
Allah subhanho wa Taala opened a way a new media a new chapter to his mission, the Medina period. So after he's returned from Tov, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam started presenting himself to the different tribes at a time of Hajj. And he was looking for a formidable tribe, a tribe that would have the muscle in the cloud to take on the Quran. If if, if, if the time came. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam went through physical rejection and mental rejection, also emotional rejection, he would present himself to the different types of tribes and he would say to them,
who is there to give me shelter, so that I can continue with my mission, and for them in return will be channeled? So many tribes rejected outright rejected the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they would say, why should we accept a man whom his own people are not accepting and saying that he has disrupted the affairs of their city and their place? So why should we invite trouble to our land, leave him and they would tell him outright, go away from here go away. And this made it very difficult for the Prophet of Allah, in terms of dealing with the emotions. And because Abu lahab and Abu Jamal would accompany the Prophet of Allah wherever he went. And they would say to the people,
that don't believe this man is a liar is a liar. Now we live in Zurich. So it is in the backdrop of all this, where the Prophet of Allah came in contact with the people of Medina,
where he met the six companions for the first time in in Mina, and they accepted Islam. They went back to Medina and they invited more people. The following year, they came back with 12 people. And they took the pledge, and this is known as a lack of a tool una. These 12 people returned to Medina again, and they come back the following year during the days of Hajj 70 plus people gather in Mena, at a place called acaba. But they do this extremely quietly and secretly.
So that Porush does not get a hint of the movement. So, in the cover of the night, once one third of the night has lapsed very quietly, so very stealthily, two and three, two and three people clerk make their way to the to the place acaba until all of them gather. And then abus the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam starts to address and he says, are people of Medina know and understand that the Prophet of Allah is well protected in his family in his clan in Makkah, but despite this, he wants to migrate to Medina. If only you are able to look after him, then you can come forward. So they said we are prepared to take the profits are allowed. So we understand that taking the profit
means waging war with Arabia, it means that we could be losing our lives also, it could mean that we lose the noble ones amongst us, but they will prepare they said we are prepared to take on this mission and take the profit of a lot of Medina. Anyways cutting the long story short, the people of Medina invite the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to the blessings city.
So it is in the backdrop of all this that the Prophet of Allah came to Medina to munawwara and the people of Medina pledged his support during difficulties and during ease.
during battle and during peace, in every condition, they were prepared to put their life on the line for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his mission there is why Medina is so integral to the mission of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And when the Prophet of Allah came to Medina, everything changed. Muslims both the first must cheat must be the Cova. Then the Prophet of Allah did the first tomorrow mosquito Juma today's erected there. The Prophet of Allah established the van the prayer to the call to the prayer, which was not possible before in Makkah, it was unthinkable in the murky period. But once he comes to the middle of the period, massages are both
and Sahaba are open they are free to, to practice Islam and not just practice Islam, they are free to propagate the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. And it is in this crucial period of his mission, where Islam had flourished to the entire Arabian peninsula.
This happened in Medina to munawwara that is why Medina is such an integral part of the prophets mission. And it's so intertwined, that one cannot separate Medina from the mission of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it is here, what all good things happen for the Muslims. It just took an upward,
upward trend, and everything good started happening for the Muslims. And this was through the blessings of the people of Medina that invited the prophet to their city, when the other tribes around them, the other tribes around him were rejecting Him, nobody was prepared to take him. The people of Medina stood by the prophet sallallahu Sallam at the time of better, the people of Medina stood by the prophet sallallahu Sallam at a time of offered, the people of Medina stood by the prophet sallallahu wasallam in a time of hunt, duck, and likewise it every other crucial moment of the prophets mission. So this tells you that Medina is not just an ordinary piece of land, and the
people of Medina are not ordinary people. And inshallah in the next segment, we'll speak about the virtues of an SAR and they can lofty status in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah give us the love for Medina, the people of Medina and whatever is found in Virginia to win over army neurobiological
