smilla rahmanir rahim hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah
salam aleikum, wa Taala barakato. Welcome to our class of history of Islam. Now inshallah we will discuss the life in Mecca before the
verse of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And we will start actually from day one of Mecca.
The beginning of Mecca starts when Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded Ibrahim alayhi salam to take his wife hajer
to Mecca. And when they were there,
there was nobody
So hajer asked Adam, she asked Ibrahim Ali Salam did Allah subhanaw taala commanded to quote us here, where are you living us? He said this. So she said the last panel Tara will remember us
and Abraham and his Salaam himself.
He admits that there is nothing as Allah says in Surah Ibrahim
or banner in the sky to mean the reality Bua deny redesign and the vertical Muharram or banner up masala. So, I placed of my progeny in a place where there is no
crops, there is nothing, there is no fruit, nothing. So that was the beginning of Mecca. From the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, he left his wife and her baby alone. You could imagine an infant that
needs to be nursed with his mother alone in that place. But of course that was the command of Allah subhana wa Taala.
So hajer she was worried and there was no water. She ran seven times between Safa and Marwa until she found the well of Zamzam. The water was gushing forth, and she had the water
now, that place is desert.
And the Bedouins they wanted
the water badly. So any place where there is water, you will find life there and you will find people but since it started soon, so there was nobody yet.
So at the time of Rahmani Salaam, there was no one living in Mecca.
Once people passed by, and they saw the water, they wanted to live there.
Hatcher was happy, because she was alone, and she wanted some people to talk to. So they
she agreed to allow for them to stay there.
But on the condition
that she is the one who's in control of water, because whoever was in control of water is in control of position in everything is in command. That tribe was called Jerome.
So Jerome was the first tribe to inhabit Mecca.
At the time of hajer.
It was the tribe of Jerome.
Now, Allah subhanaw taala asked Ibrahim alayhi salam to place his wife
in that place for a reason why?
Why Allah subhanaw taala asked the prime minister to put her in that place where it is desert There is nothing
better memorias on top and what's in the bottom? On the house of Allah? Was it there?
Who says that? So that's the question. Who built the house of Allah subhanaw taala.
Who built the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
and the smile. So before that,
there was no house.
Is that what you're saying?
Yes, do we have answered from the students online?
She says, Adam, so we have now Abraham and Adam. Whatever you say we need an evidence.
You need the evidence.
It's not enough to say something without proof. So what do you think?
Now, suppose we say Abraham Alice
Alam is the one who built the house. What is the proof for that?
Where can we find it? Allah says in the Quran why we are file Ibrahim collide and albedo smile. And remember when Ibrahim and this man they do what?
They raise the foundation. So the rays they don't build.
So, there is a possibility that the house was there or at least the pillars were there.
Some scholars said the house
is there, it existed with the earth itself. From day one, the house is there with with the earth. Some say it is the money salon. It's not Ibrahim
because there is a narration says that all prophets they circumambulated they they house.
So there is a narration says that Adam and his son and there is an opinion says Adam and Eve Salaam is the one who built the house. The prophet SAW Selim was asked which house was on earth first. Which house means which Masjid so the prophet SAW Selim said the house of Allah, the sacred house, and then he was asked what what's next prophet SAW Selim said, and message the Luxor, the message of Jerusalem. And
when he was asked how many years between them he said 40 years
there was 40 years between them. So this means the possibility that it was built by a human being, but Allah Allah, also the opinion that Ibrahim alayhis salaam built the house, it's a strong opinion as well. Any opinion you follow? You need a proof for it.
And that's your job. You go back to the Tafseer of the ayah and Surah makara dear father, grandma who smiled and inserted Ibrahim when when Abram and his son and pray to Allah subhanaw taala after they completed the building of the house, so we have two opinions.
Now when Ibrahim Ali Salaam built the house with his son, Ismail,
Allah commanded him to call people for Hajj.
Now, once and primarily Sam called people for Hajj, people started responding and brought him on he said, he asked Allah, how could How can I
shout and reach everybody? I am only one man, and I cannot see anybody. Allah subhanaw taala told him that it is your job to call and our job to deliver your call to the people.
So people started coming. Now they come there's a house of Allah and there is water. Some of them go back, some of them they don't want so they want to stay. So the first tribe stayed there was the tribe of Durham. Durham was the first tribe to stay there. At that time is nine Ali Salaam became
reached the adulthood and he wanted to get married. So he married from the tribe of Jerome,
his wife was from this tribe from the tribe of Judah home. And Abraham and his ceram used to come back and forth. And there is an operation that he came
and he did not find this man. He found his wife. And he asked her, how is
how is life with you? How is your husband treating you? And she said, we are not in a good situation. She complained. So he told her I am his father, once he comes, tell him to change his doorstep.
When his name came, she told him there is an old man came. He said, He's your father. And he asked me to change the doorstep. He said that's my father. And he asked me to divorce you. So he divorced her. And the smile is solid married another woman.
Then a blind alley Sam came again. He did not find the smile. And he asked his wife, how is life how's everything and she said that handle everything is good. So he told her, tell him when he comes to to fix his doorstep to keep it. So when it's mine came, she told him what happened. And he said that's my father and he asked me to keep you as wife. Now, some scholars said is Brian Ali Salam he lived in Palestine. It was 40 days traveling back and forth each way so how could he come and go and come and go some scholars said he used albayrak
because albayrak that animal it was the right for all messengers. That's what jabril Ali Salaam told albayrak when the prophet SAW Selim was riding and Brock he said, he is the most noble man who took you as right. So that means previous messengers they used it so there is a possibility that the blind man is Salam was using alborada
And Barack is the it's not the horse. It's an animal between the horse and the donkey. In average,
one step is like 6070 miles each step.
Okay, now, it's my Elisa Lam, married, he was married to one of the tribe of Jerome and he had lots of children.
So, now, Mecca
started to be
a city. Now, the people started growing.
And after its Miley Salaam
people started fighting,
who takes the leadership over the house because now it is the house of Allah, which has the spiritual importance.
sanctity and there is the water. It's also the financial importance economy. So it is a potential place for anybody who wanted to take control. So they there, there were lots of lots of battles among the progeny of Israel Elisa Lam, who should take control
over the house.
Until one day, the tribe of Jerome itself, they took control over the house. Now the children with smile, they are not considered from the tribe of Jerome they are considered from the progeny of Ismail Elisa, but their uncles are from Jerome. So the uncles, they took
the leadership they took over and they control the house.
They control the house for a period of time.
However, they did not
honor the house, as it was supposed to be honored. Now,
generation after generation shaytan is working against
the Muslims because it's mylife salaam was a prophet and his children, they were supposed to be more hiding, they worship Allah subhanaw taala. But generation after generation shavonne came to them, he started deviating them
adultery in front of the house
itself and now Allah itself is the name of a man. Now Allah the name of a woman, they formulated in front of the house, so they were transformed instantly to stones.
And the people learn the lesson.
They started honoring again, the house of Allah subhanaw taala they started showing respect to the house of Allah. And they put these two people these two rocks on the gate of the house. So anyone who comes he knows that this is what happened to the people who disrespected the house. But the next generation shaytan came to them and he told them your
father's your forefathers used to worship these idols. So now she started with
it started with the people of
It started with the people of Jerome and they started worshipping these two idols.
Now there is another tribe.
They were living outside Mecca, and they wanted to take over as well. Everybody wanted to control Mecca. And they were able eventually they were able to
to take over. This tribe is called Hosea.
Hosea. This drive is called Hosea. Jose is the name of a man.
Hosea is the name of a man. And the story of Hosea goes back all the way to Yemen. Now we are moving from Mecca tm and just try to keep track of the historical incidents. Now Ibrahim Ali Salaam, with his wife and his son a smile in Mecca. Then the Jerome's then Hosea, where did that come from? It came from Yemen.
there was a civilization
from early on.
A Tribe Called Subbu.
And we have in the Quran, an entire sutra called surah.
Allah subhanaw taala says Lacan can and he said the infamous can him if, indeed there was an ayah. And the people of Sabah where they lived
in Sabah, that tribe, they live between two mountains. They lived in the valley. And they built a dam. This dam was called metric said metric.
This dam was called sedimentary. And they were very, very fortunate. Those people, they got everything. Fruits, vegetables, all types of provision. They were, they had everything easily. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala said, they were given to Goddess, Jenna Tanya minashi man. So Allah reminded them with his favorites, but they disbelieved in Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah punish them, how He punished them by destroying them, and the entire city was drowned. So before that, remember now this is the situation, the city is great, you have the dam, everything is okay.
One man, he was a rich man, he noticed that there is a rat digging a hole inside the dam. So he knew that the dam will be destroyed, he knew that the entire city will be destroyed. But he did not want to tell everybody. If he told everybody, everybody will panic, they will leave everything. And they'll try to leave. He wanted to keep it as a secret. So he could take advantage of it as much as possible. He was a rich man, and he could not leave easily he wanted to leave because he knew that this this place will be destroyed. So he asked one of his sons to slap him in front of everybody. So he will be insulted in front of everybody. He will show that he was aggravated. So he will leave the
city and he will say I will not live in a place where my son insulted me, in front of everybody. He did that.
And once people saw this, nobody gave it a thought they thought that this is normal. And now he wants to sell his properties. He wanted to sell everything he has. And people said let's take advantage of this. So he was able to get his money. He was able to get everything and he left.
What did he go he settled close to Mecca.
And they after they until the tribe was formed the tribe of Hosea. So that's how because I came from Is this clear?
Are you following me? Okay, now.
The city was destroyed. The city was destroyed.
Not all of them left Yemen. Some of them left. Some of them left.
And they settled
in many places.
One of the places they settled in was year three.
What is the trip? At that time?
Yes, sir. Is el Medina.
Who lived in Yes.
Who lived in year three.
Who are they?
unsolved, unsolved. They became unsolved at the time of the messenger Salim. But before that they were Jews. No.
They were two tribes originally from Yemen.
And they lived in Medina. It was called the airstrip at that time, why they moved because of the destruction of the dam.
The set of married so now you understand where allows the hazards came from. They came from Yemen, and they lived in Medina.
So allows them to enhance their assets. Ancestry goes all the way back to Yemen. But they left him and for a reason because of the destruction of the city.
Going back to Yemen
each King There was also a civilization in Yemen because
Again, Yemen, there were mountains, good weather, and there is the sea.
So there was a civilization.
Each ruler of the Yemen is called to back.
The title of the ruler of Yemen is called to back. What's the title of the ruler of Egypt?
Pharaoh was the title of the ruler of Rome.
Right. So the same thing with tuba. tuba is the name of one of the kings of Yemen. He was the first one to close the cabin. Now the cabin was built, but there was no cloth around it. He was the first one to do that. Why? There was a reason to that he was involved in many fights. Again, that's the nature of Arabia, you need to understand the nature of rabies. There are lots of fights, tribes are fighting other tribes to take control over the water. They want to extend their strength. So they fight and tuba was fighting until he reached
the proximity the vicinity of Medina
now who was living in Medina,
Alexander Hazzard, but they were not the only ones. They came first. But there are other people came next. Who are they?
The Jews, why they came and lived in the strip in Medina.
Why did they live there?
Yes, they knew that it was the place where a prophet will migrate to. So they lived there.
he was he was fighting until he reached there.
And he intended to destroy el Medina, because he reached Almudena and its people upset him. So he wanted to destroy Medina, one of the leaders in Medina, he told him instead of destroying us, I will give you something better, go to Mecca, and
destroy the house, that place and everybody will follow you.
So he believed that and he wanted to go, he wanted to go there.
And the leader wanted to save Medina, from the destruction to rabbis from the Jews. They hear what that man told him. So they went to him they wanted to die. And they told him Do not listen. Do not do that anyone who intended
to do any harm to that house, he was destroyed.
So he told them, then why you're not there. If you honor that house, and you show that much respect to the house, why don't you go there, they said,
the people who are living there, they change the religion, the correct religion, and we cannot go there in that situation. So he liked what they said. And they advised him actually they told him, instead of going and destroying the house, go and close the house, show respect and honor the house. And people will love you for that. And the love of love you. So he did that. And he liked that he liked those two rabbis. And he said you should come with me to Yemen.
So they accepted, they came with him. Once they came to Yemen, of course he followed them, he became a Jew. He followed them. Once he came to Yemen, the people of Yemen refused to,
to accept those two rabbis refuse to change their religion.
So he asked them, he said, if you want to back said if you want, we can sacrifice, we will sacrifice a thing to Allah subhanaw taala. And whatever was accepted, we will follow it. So the two rabbis accept the sacrifice, and their sacrifice was accepted. The fire came and they took it.
So people knew that those two rabbis are following the true religion. Now remember, this was before the time of the prophet SAW Selim. So they knew that this is the correct religion. And from that time, Judaism
in Yemen, so if you're asked how Judaism came to Yemen, because Yemen was pure Arab,
it was from the lineage of Abraham Allison, there was no people there.
Whether Jews or Christians, how Judaism came to Yemen, from those two rabbis.
Now, we will remain in Yemen for another story, which is the story of the elephant
And this happened The same year, the Prophet sallallaahu salam was born.
some people complained about
And they wanted to change
the rulers that they have.
they went, and they sought the help of other people, against their own people against the Arab.
So they went to a be senior
in Abbey senior.
The people there used to follow Christianity. They were Christians.
anatomy was sent to Yemen.
anatomy was sent to Yemen,
some of the people who asked for the support. And they, they took over, and they control. But instead of giving the leadership to the one who wanted it, they themselves took the leadership over Yemen.
And now we have Christians in Yemen, and actually a be seniors. They are ruling Yemen, there were two rulers, two leaders
from the military, they were sent by
Anna joshy. Again, and he is the name of the ruler of the senior. It's the title.
One of them was Abra.
And Abraham did not like what the other ruler was doing. So he killed him. And he took over and he ruled Yemen.
That's where Abra comes from.
Now Abra he was a practicing Christian.
And he heard of the house of Allah subhanaw taala. He heard of the Kaaba.
So he said, I will not keep that place. He wanted to move all the people and to bring them to Yemen, to perform Hajj there instead of performing hajj to the house of Allah subhanaw taala. And for that purpose, he built a big, huge church.
It was called Alka lace.
It was huge. And he sent to an agency he told him, I built a place
a church that will compete all other places of worship on earth.
And I will make everybody come to it, to perform Hajj to it.
That was his purpose.
Now, some of the Arab they knew of what he did.
And they were upset.
And they wanted to insult that place, which is the church alkalis. So one of the bedrooms. He came, of course, that place was protected. There were God's soldiers.
Because it was it was
a piece of art for them for abre and others.
He came in the night
without anyone seeing him
and he defecate in the bad place in the middle of that place.
And he left. So Abra
in the morning, the people came and told him that
there is no just that there is impurity in the middle of your place. That place that you honor. You made it sacred place. Look what happened. He asked Who did that? They told him that we hit one of the bedrooms was here in the night. He's from the Arab. So he he intended from that time to go and destroy the cabin.
And for that purpose, he prepared the elephant to go there. And he started moving.
And of course we know the details of the story what happened. He went north with intention of destroying the Kaaba. But of course, that did not happen. Once they wanted to push the elephant to the direction of the Kaaba.
It refused. Once they turn the elephant it runs
because it knows that this is the house of Allah subhanaw taala
The animals knew that this is the house of Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah sent the birds with stones, destroying everybody.
At that time, the people of Mecca, they left Mecca, because they knew that whoever intended to destroy the Kaaba,
he will not be able to, and there is a punishment coming. So they did not want to be included in that punishment. And also the people of Mecca were unable to fight back. They are unable to fight Abra and his soldiers, he brought lots of soldiers with him a big number of Army so they were unable to fight him.
Who was the chief of Mecca at that time?
The time of the field,
the year of the field the year of the elephant.
It was Abdulmutallab. Exactly. And Abdulmutallab he came to obrah because the soldiers of Barbara they took lots of camels, which belonged to the metallic.
And Deborah here of Abdulmutallab, because again, as I told you, mica was the center, everybody knows about Mecca.
So he came to Abra, asking him to return the candles. Abra was disappointed. He thought that he is coming to negotiate with him, how he can
dissuade him, How can he prevent him from destroying the cabin?
And he said, I am coming to destroy the house
of your Lord that you worship. And you were asking me about your camels. And the metallic told him the famous statement. I am the Lord of my camels. So I should protect my camels. And the lie is the Lord of the house and he will protect his house. That's what he told him. So he said, give him his camels. He took his camels and he left.
And, of course we know what happened. The entire army was destroyed. And
NACA, the house of Allah subhanaw taala was protected. Now, we will go back again to Yemen. Now the army of Abra was destroyed.
The people who are living there they are up they wanted to get rid of the Christians again.
How can they do that alone, they cannot because a senior is close. And they have strong state there. So they went to the Persians.
They went to Iran
to seek help
from them, and the one who went there, he was called safe. They've been the
safe haven deism. He was one of the princes.
He was a prince, and he went to kisara.
But kisara told him
your land is far from here. And I have no interest. Why should I send? Send my army to fight people? I don't know. And I don't need
to take control.
So it did not respond to him.
But he told him, I will give you some money. When he went, he left with the money. He gave the money to the soldiers.
So kisara here that he called on him again. He said, Are you crazy? I give you money and you give it to my followers. He said what? What would I do with your money? We have lots of money there. He wanted to convince him that let's go it's it's a good thing to do. So one of the assistants of kisara he told him, why don't you send some people you don't need if they want. It's you one. If they were killed, you did not lose anything. So he sent with him 900 thugs or thieves, people who were convicted or in prison.
He sent them with him
as a support and eventually safe when the IRS and he was able to take over. But again, the Persians are the real ones who took over. They won
for the advantage of kisara. And now they are ruling Yemen. So you notice Yemen was always a terrible place where lots of battles and lots of fights there.
But eventually it was
ruled by Otto
at the end. Now we will move back to Mecca.
Remember, we stopped at the Jerome and Hosea,
the rude Mecca, they took over
they kicked out
The Judah Holmes, who were the relatives of
smile Ali Salaam. And the children for smile are not in control anymore. And they want to
take over but they cannot resolve itself again. They also
this has been disrespected the house, the first one to start changing the religion of Ibrahim is a man mentioned by the prophet SAW Selim. Do you know this man?
What's his name?
The first one to change the erosion of Ibrahim. That's what the messenger Selim said. He was below Hi, Al Jose.
Hi from the tribe of Casa.
Now, I was very honored man. He was very well respected man. He was the leader of Hosea. And he was
of course, the ruler of Mecca. He went to a sham and he saw people worshipping idols he like that. So he asked them to give him an idol with him to bring it to
So they gave him one idol.
One of the biggest idols, which was honored later on by all the other
worship the idols, that idols name was.
And you remember it, the Battle of Abu Sufyan was calling or
praise or huben because all are abused to honor that idol. Where did it come from? It came from a sham, who brought it Amarillo high, he started changing the religion of Ibrahim alayhis salam.
So Kasabian keylab, he was able
after he lobbied lots of people, he was able to regain the leadership of the house.
Now one incident happened
when Judo home
was kicked out by Hosea. They covered
and Zamzam after they left was not known at all, they did not know where it comes from anymore. So zum zum vanished.
It was for a specific time only. Yes.
Actually, I repeated
who asked this question?
So I was able to regain the leadership of the house
and he was from the children of Israel. When Durham was kicked out by Jose, they covered
the treasure of the house and they covered the well of Zamzam.
They did not want to let it
usable by Hosea.
And they left Rosa was unable at all to locate
the well of Zamzam anymore.
Now, saving Caleb, he took over and he knew that there is a well developed Zamzam it is there but he doesn't know where it is.
Saving Caleb, he had four children, four sons.
And once he took over,
he was very well respected. And again, once you don't Mecca, it's almost zero the entire Arabia, all the tribes will respect you. So all his sons were also respected.
He decided, instead of giving the leadership to his eldest son, he will give it to his youngest son, he noticed that he is weak. So he thought that when he gives him the leadership, when his youngest son succeeds him, he will become strong.
But once per se died, and they knew that he gave the leadership to his youngest son, the old sons, they did not like that. They were already strong. So they wanted to take the leadership and they fought
the young son,
and of course,
there were many battles going on.
Now we are reaching
Before that crash was not known.
race was not known. This name.
gathering from Carlos
Kairos means together.
It was the title of Kasabian, Caleb
you remember Kasabian Caleb he was the one who was able to regain the leadership of the house, why he was called Christ because again, he is the one who gathered, the children have a smile, to take over to regain the leadership. So, from that,
now we know where the name courage come from, it came from Simon keylab
it was the title given to him and the meaning is together. The coverage means gathering.
It has another meaning, which is to gain courage means gaining again because they gained the leadership of the house after they lost it.
And here in sha Allah, we will stop and with this we will conclude our session for today and also allow Solomon and Mohammed
is there any question?
