about being a bit more eath is known to most of us as one of the worst enemies of the prophets of Allah wherever you send them. Okay was the one who went and drag the carcass of the dead camel and threw it over the back of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam while he was performing sujood birth but wasn't open, I wasn't always an enemy of the snam. There was a time in fact, when I was close to becoming a Muslim, he was listening to a snam he was spending time around the Muslims. He was listening to the Quran from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was sitting in eating with the prophet and with the Muslims. And it was happening so much that a rumor spread in Mecca that Akbar

00:00:46--> 00:01:25

had become Muslim. At that time, Akbar had a really close friend, or may even have and omiya had been gone on business with a travel expedition. He was gone for many months. And it was in this time that Oprah was listening to the Muslims and listening to put on and reflecting over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And drawing closer and closer to becoming a Muslim. Oh may have in color, eventually returned back from travel. He came back to Mecca and his wife when she first saw him, she said, Did you hear about your friend, we heard he became a Muslim. She said the rumor to omega. so omega became enraged. And he went to meet her. And he said, I heard that you've become a Muslim.

00:01:25--> 00:02:01

What's wrong with you? Are you crazy? and awkward, but denied? He said, No, no, no, I'm not a Muslim. I'm not a Muslim, I swear. So when you said to him, the only way that I will believe you is if you go to him ie the Prophet sallallahu you send them and you curse him with the worst insults and you spit in his face. And so we're the ones in did just that. He said terrible things to our prophets in the lower how to sell them, and he spat in his face and then talked about began walking down the path. Instead of walking down the path of getting closer and closer to a snam he began walking down the path of becoming a worse and worse enemy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:01--> 00:02:37

sallam, he tried to attack the Prophet sallallahu I mean he said it many times physically even tried to kill him. And because of this, Allah subhanaw taala revealed this verse. Well yeah, well now Yeah, I'm Milan emo Allah Yeah, daddy. Yep, una Yeah, now you turn it down to mA Hua, Sunni savvy Allah.

Once after attacking the Prophet sallallahu, I do send them from behind. He grabbed the cloak around the neck of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and tried to choke him. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got free. He turned to an acrobat and he said something to him. He said one day, on the outskirts of Mecca, you will be dragged and killed off the bat. Even though he was an enemy of the Prophet and insulted him and attacked him. He knew the Prophet sallallahu. I mean, he said he was an honest man, he knew who was a truthful man. That was one of the reasons he was being drawn to Islam. So when the Prophet said that he became terrified on the day of bed, and the people came to him and

00:03:24--> 00:03:58

said, we're gonna go fight the Muslims. He was terrified. He remembered the promise of the Prophet sallallahu ever you send them. He said to them, that man promised me I will be dragged and killed in the outskirts of Mecca and dead that is in the outskirts of Mecca, you refused to go some of what I said to him, Look, we will give you our fastest camel. If for some reason we're losing the battle, get on the camel and go, they will never be able to catch you. And if we went on the battlefield, you will get the spoils of the battle along with us. And they convinced him to go to the battlefield. But the promise of Allah subhanaw taala is true. And just as the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:58--> 00:04:34

alayhi wa sallam said he was dragged on the on the plains of bed and killed there. Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam predicted in this story is a powerful message about the quality of our friends, what kind of friends we have, I hope that was walking down the road of getting closer to Islam. And it was his friends who pulled him away from that and into the image of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his friends were the ones who convinced them to go to bed where he would meet his final ultimate destruction. His friends dragged him to every evil, even though he had the potential to possibly be someone who is good. How many of us are there in this

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

world today? People who have the potential of walking a path of righteousness and goodness, but their friends drag them into a path of sin and disobedience, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'll Malala Dini, hurry for the young man you harden, that a man is on the path on the religion of his friends. So let each of you look and consider who their friends are. May Allah xojo bless us with good and righteous friends me
