Hello hello hello benign Amin was salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hill Amin while IRD he was so happy to hear Jemaine about our hotbar today is about lessons learned from the death of Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:33--> 00:01:16

Abu Talib died in the 10th year of prophethood, meaning the Prophet sallallahu sallam was a prophet for 10 years. And in the 10th year Abu Talib dies. Three days later, howdy God, Allahu Anhu dies in another narration, one month, and five days later. And these are two of the biggest supporters of the Prophet sallallahu audience Allah, I will tell him who is offering him protection, and Khadija who offered her support from within the home. And this was three years before the Hijra of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So Abu Talib now falls ill he is on his deathbed and the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam.

00:01:17--> 00:02:10

He's going to go to call him to Islam for the last time, even though he's been calling him for 10 years. But when he gets to him, he is not alone. Who is there, Abuja and another of the leaders of the Kurdish. So now the Prophet SAW Selim, this is his last opportunity to bring his dear uncle to Islam, who has been defending him for 10 years and constantly rejecting the truth. So he tells him Yeah, I'm Oh uncle Kula. ilaha illallah c'est la ilaha illallah Kelemen or Hodge with your Avaya, a shadow la cabeza and Allah. He tells him Oh, Uncle, c'est la ilaha illAllah. This sentence this phrase if you say it, I will argue your point or the other narration, I will testify in front of

00:02:10--> 00:02:17

Allah azza wa jal on the Day of Judgment. On the first narration, I will defend you. I will argue for you because you've said this statement.

00:02:18--> 00:02:24

Abu Jamal is not going to sit there quietly while this is going on. So he tells him Yeah, about

00:02:26--> 00:02:42

a total of about a minute to Abdul Muttalib. He said, You're going to leave the religion of Abdulmutallab. He's like saying, you're going to leave the religion of the great Abdul Muttalib your father and Abuja Hell, he doesn't even like Abdul Muttalib

00:02:43--> 00:03:16

he he's not even from Bernie Hashem. He doesn't like them. They are the enemies of Bernie Hashem. But now he's making it sound like How can you leave the religion of the great Abdulmutallab just for the sake of making them Autolib die upon anything other than Islam? And the prophets Allah wa salam kept calling him to Allah and Abuja al kept interrupting and interjecting. And then the last words of Abu Talib were Allah miletti Abdon Mubarak, upon the religion of Abdon Mata meaning I will die upon the religion of Abdul Muttalib.

00:03:17--> 00:04:09

Then in Nabi SallAllahu sallam said, Mr. Wallahi let us talk Varun Allah aka ma alum on Hank, he said what by Allah, I will continue to seek forgiveness for you to make his to fall for you as long as Allah does not stop me from doing so. And then Allah subhanaw taala reveals Maracana Linden Abbey when Medina Amanu a year stone Pharaoh lil Mushrikeen when Okano Julio Cordoba mimbar the MATA V and Allah whom and to whom has hobbled him. In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala says it is not proper, not correct, not right, not acceptable for the Prophet and those who believe, to ask for forgiveness for the Mushrikeen even though they be of kin, their relatives, even if their close relatives, after

00:04:09--> 00:04:46

it has become clear to them, that they were from the dwellers of the Fire, Jonnie, it was clear to them that the from from the people of the fire, how does how does that make sense? Yeah, we know that no one knows for sure, who will end up in the Hellfire or not. So what does this verse mean then after it became clear to them, that they're from the people of the fire? Meaning apparently, what we know is that he they do not they didn't die upon Islam. And in general, you didn't die upon Islam, you're from the people of the Hellfire. So after it became clear to them that he did not die upon Islam, they are not allowed to ask for forgiveness. So that's our first lesson then from the

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

death of Bhutan. And why is this relevant? Because every time a celebrity dies, Muslim Facebook pages light up with may he rest in peace and making some type of Da which is come

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

pletely forbidden clearly in the Quran,

00:05:03--> 00:05:41

and maybe SallAllahu wasallam was forbidden from making dua for his uncle who defended him and defended Islam for 10 years. And the Prophet SAW Selim loved him so much. And Allah subhanaw taala still didn't allow him to make a stuffer to seek forgiveness for him. So what about some celebrity that you barely know not related to? You didn't do anything for Islam? Why would it be okay in that case, and it's very important that when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah tells us stop, we stop. Many people when you told them this is not permissible, it's not acceptable. They cite being humane and caring for people. One thing we need to always remember and understand,

00:05:42--> 00:06:23

being humane caring for individuals being a Muslim who cares for people to go to Paradise and doesn't want people to burn in the hellfire. There's only one manifestation of that. And that is true doubt. If you truly care about people, if you truly want to save people from the alpha, you give them the Alpha while they're alive once they die. They're in the other realm now with Allah azza wa jal, and it's none of our business. We don't make dua for don't do anything. Hello. So it's up to Allah azza wa jal at that point, but you're really merciful you call people before they die, not after the die start saying rest in peace and rest in this. So that was the first lesson from the

00:06:23--> 00:07:02

death of Abu Talib. The second and it's very important is that he died guidance is in is with Allah subhanaw taala is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal and that's why Allah subhanaw taala said to the Prophet lamb in Nicoletta demon, barbed wire, the king Allah, hiya de Maya Shah, you do not guide those whom you love. But Allah guides whomever he wills, whereas in another verse, Allah azza wa jal tells the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were in Nicoletta de la Serato. Mr. Kim, and indeed you guide to the straight path. So one versus you guide, the other verse says you don't guide and this is gonna say, how do you link between the two is that there are two types of guidance. Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:02--> 00:07:20

opens people's hearts to Islam that's hidden to Tofik and that's Allah subhanaw taala others job. As for our job is hidden to Russia to guide people to direct them to what is the truth, so we know that he died opening people's hearts is with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:21--> 00:07:59

The other thing is that many prophets had non Muslim family members we know Ibrahim Ali salaam with his father, we no no, I did Salam with his son, Luca Ali Salam with his wife and so on and so forth. But the fact that and Mohamed Salah Salem with Abu Talib, the fact that prophets had close family members that they cared for who did not become Muslim. This also makes it easier for reverts as a lot of reverts have family members that they love that don't come into Islam, and this makes it difficult for them, but now they can relate to this experience of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and all the other prophets of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:01--> 00:08:32

There other thing is we see the strength of love in the story of Abu Talib, because Abu Lahab was also the uncle of the Prophet salallahu Salam but there was no love here whatsoever. And I will tell him was given strong love as even the cathedra him hola said. He said Hogben Tabia II and luxuriant meaning he has the natural love for the Prophet SAW Selim but not a religious love, meaning he doesn't love them as a prophet of Allah, but he loves him as his nephew.

00:08:33--> 00:09:02

The other thing that scholars mentioned is that we see that not all kuffaar are the same. And many times we find people who lump all non Muslims into one category, all wicked, all evil, no good in any of them. But clearly from this story, you can you can see there's no comparison between Abu Lahab and Abu Talib, as far as conduct and as far as behaving as far as what they've done for Islam. So it is not fair to lump all non Muslims into one category.

00:09:03--> 00:09:44

The other thing that scholars mentioned is that from the death of Abu Talib as a non Muslim, we also learn how to deal with oppression. And this is something that Muslims were going to have to deal with for quite a while. Because after the death of Abu Talib, anyone was able to attack the Prophet Sawsan them anybody even know name, Riff rafts mentioned in there were not even mentioned by name in the narrations would now pour sand on top of the head of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam because now he has no protector and the oppression intensified. So now we learned how the problem dealt with the severe oppression because of the death of Obatala. And then the problem starts looking for

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

another city and hence the journey to authority and then finally ending up in the blessed city of Medina all that started with this event of the death of Avatar. Then, from the story The Scholars say is

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

We learn from the other benefits of the story of the death of Bhutan. We learn about the severity of the Hellfire, how severe the Hellfire is and helps us learn to fear it more. Because even though Nabi SallAllahu wasallam could not seek forgiveness for him, Allah subhanaw taala to make it easier on his prophet, give a Bhutan, the least punishment in the hellfire. The least punishment in the hellfire, and Nabi SallAllahu Sallam described it to us that he will be standing at the edge of the Hellfire with two small embers for coals under his feet, just too, and the from there heat will cause his brain to boil. And this is the least punishment in the hellfire. So it then reminds the

00:10:49--> 00:11:01

believers of the severity of the hellfire and it reminds them to keep it in the forefront of their of their minds and to be fearful of it and it's punishment. May Allah azza wa jal protect us from that.

00:11:02--> 00:11:44

And there are other things such as we learned that no one is saved, or no no one is saved by their family, no one is saved by their lineage. And the scholars also mentioned that if Abu Talib became Muslim, he wouldn't have been able to protect the Prophet sallallahu wasallam anymore. And we also see there is no divinity whatsoever attributed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it was not within his control as some groups today within Islam make it as if the process alum had divine powers and he can make other decisions as guiding and so on and so forth. But from this story, we clearly see him as a prophet Sallallahu Sallam and unable to control people's hearts. Without a hula colada was

00:11:44--> 00:11:53

tough for Allah Allah the media welcome and Jimmy are going on first off Rufio fossil Mr Vereen ask Allah azza wa jal for his forgiveness indeed those who ask for his forgiveness shall prosper.

00:12:02--> 00:12:44

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah hill I mean, what are the early he was sloppy here do you mind about so we saw that this incident took place after the after bundle Hashem were sent out the boycott of mineral Hashem. They were sent out into the ravines for three years, and they experienced severe starvation at that point, and some scholars even believe Khadija died as a result of her health becoming worse during this time period. And even eventually, Zainab, the oldest daughter of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as a result of this time period, so it was a difficult time the three years in the ravines of Bhutan. Then there is the death of Abu Talib and

00:12:44--> 00:13:05

everyone now starts to attack the prophets, Allah salah, and then other three days or a month and five days later the death of Khadija, Ravi Allahu Anna, so a difficult time and a difficult year, to the point that the regime the historians name, this the year of sorrow I'm and husband. But what's also interesting is that

00:13:06--> 00:13:49

during this time, is when Allah subhanaw taala revealed Surah Yusuf. And in Surah use of Allah subhanaw taala is telling the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the story of one of his brothers, a prophet of Allah, who experienced far worse than you did, who was sold into slavery and had all these things happen in his life and all these losses and imprisonment. And then the story ends with a good ending. So it's as if telling the Prophet sallallahu Sallam worse things have happened to other prophets, and the ending was good, and the ending for you will be good. So what is the lesson here? The lesson is for us to always relate to the Quran. And there is not a human being on this

00:13:49--> 00:14:34

planet who will not find a way to relate the Quran or that the Quran will not speak to them. Yeah, there is a style in the Quran that will match every living being on this earth. And there is a there are stories and incidents that will match some aspects in everyone's life in this world. But our job as Muslims is to always relate to the book of Allah azza wa jal always relate to book the Quran. And a lot of times we experienced difficulties calamities, we don't rush back to the book of Allah. We don't rush back to even the CETA of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, and we tried to seek help somewhere else. But here in the story of our Prophet sallallahu sallam, he is given this surah to

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

bring ease to his heart. And that's what the Quran does one of the many things that the Quran does. With that we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of those who recognize the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it and making it make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood and abstain from it. For Lahoma didn't allow it to happen. We're gonna Tada. We're in Obatala Belton and we're gonna Justina Alba for Lahoma yatta yatta dunya Tamara Homina Well, I'm up
