When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam was around 50 years of age,
into his life,
he received revelation 10 years earlier. The prophets that Allahu Allah He was Saddam had already been giving Dawa, to the people of Makkah, a small group of them accepted Islam. But there were still so many who didn't. And when your message is so pure, when your message is so logical, when what you're saying it's so obvious, but the people who troll you publicly, are doing it solely because they have an audience that listens to them, because they have reach that you don't have access to. It hurts a little.
But the prophet of Allah, Allah He set out to Salam was trained by Allah, how to silence out
all that trolling and all that noise. Now viata has set out to
continue to give Dawa for 10 years in Mecca.
And then he turned his attention to a nearby city, a great city, the city of life. These are people who lived
within forts, people who had great wealth, the markets of life are known. Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam had this dream that maybe I'll go to this new group of people, maybe I will go to this people and convey my message to them, they will hear the truth in my message. And they will support me, they will be by my side.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrives in five, because it's built off of strategy. 10 years in Mecca, there really wasn't much there. But profit on a set out to set, I'm really scattered out who would be the next ally in this mission, who would be the next group of people. So when he laid his eyes on five, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he came there with big hopes, because you know, sometimes you have this plan that you've put it into place, and you're like, I've calculated the outcomes. And I've given this a good amount of thought and that strategize well here, this should work.
When you arrived and thought, if the people of thought if turned out to be as stubborn, if not more than the people of Makkah.
And what was supposed to be an easy victory, what would have been in sha Allah, a moment of support and growth for Islam? These people, not only did they reject Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but they turned against him. And it's fascinating how that can happen sometimes. That today, someone's your friend, and tomorrow they turn against you.
Today, you have hope and someone and tomorrow they abandon you. You think to yourself that in a world full of tragic tragedy, if I were to speak logic, if I were to speak sets, on the platforms that are available to me, the people who are bystanders would see the message that someone is being oppressed, someone is being ignored. Someone is being tortured. It only sounds natural for them to stand with the oppressed against the oppressor. But how is it that human beings, they look at weak people, and rather than supporting them, they use that moment of weakness in the oppressed, to troll them even further to torture them. That's what happened in five. Not only did they reject Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but they lined up the foolish among them to ridicule and insult the Prophet on a set up of cell. Stones were thrown at him. And sometimes he began to wonder that how difficult can things actually get before they are better?
Blood began to pour from the body over sort of loss and a lot of money was involved in one of his poems. He says Allah Muhammad,
that the blood of the martyr
is the redness that crosses the horizon before the rising of the sun.
Don't be terrified by the blood of the martyr, when blood spills of those that are sincere and do what they do for the sake of Allah. Just be ready to know that the sun is about to rise, just like that redness
that spreads across the horizon. And now on the sunrises, the world will be shocked by what kind of greatness is about to come. Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam leaves life and his dua that he makes to Allah isn't so much about how much they sucked. It wasn't so much about how the people have died from horrible people his dua was your Allah. If this is due to my incompetence that I complain to you of that
Now luck giving me strength guide me, but do not let my enemy laugh at me. Who are you abandoning me to
a group of people who take pleasure and joy and mocking you alone but if you are by my side, I will do this again.
And as the people who look at the one afflicted, we have pity on them. Man, that person lost their life. But the Shaheed are the one that is being tested in that moment. Allah subhanaw taala exposes them to a level of pleasure and joy, that if they were given that opportunity, again, to go through that difficulty, they will do it.
And they will do it again. And they will do it again. And I wanted to I looked at feasibility last
It'd be sort of lots of them said, I wish that I was martyred in the path of Allah and then brought back to life and then martyred again and brought back to life because the one that goes through the process of trials, but does it in the right mindset with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. All the experience is closeness to Allah. And all the experience is growth. There's no need to have pity on them. In reality, their story for us is an inspiration. Now Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Grant is that inspiration and grabbing grant us that strength may allow us to see in times of difficulty, what our eyes really need to see for our hearts to be strengthened. For Salah dadada Muhammad as Salaam
