I can start.
I want to start with understanding.
But it's it's two things. And I know that I'm, I'm obligated to be here
to be so appreciative that you did come despite the weather. But then it goes on to say that I realized this is nothing new to you
probably thinking, What's the big deal?
And then either way, it's up in my favor. And individuals, lm said, Whoever it takes a path to knowledge, did we facilitate a thought for him? to paradise? For me, I love her facilitated.
I don't think I'm going to use it too much. So a number of things, where did we leave off last time?
So last time, we did that one of the major things we discussed was the positioning of Arabia. And the advantage and why it was specifically chose to send it to Islam in Arabia, that region, the advantages of it being
not known for having the military power between two superpowers at the time, not having too many. That's a Christian, there's no one can accuse him of stealing and borrowing, as opposed to it being sent in the area for the state. And
then today, we want to
continue, I think we have
Okay, so we spoke about the the birth of the prophets, I send them there is on the Europe, the elephant on 1201. That, you know, as a child who was sent out to the desert to be raised there, and, and this is the customer of Arabs who used to send their children out in the desert in their early years. So they can be raised in pure and healthy environment, as opposed to the city more unhealthy. Whatever it is, sewage dumps running water, it's more hotel can desert, away from the diseases and plagues of the city, it builds their stamina to get some adjusted to rough life. And so they don't become soft and pampered as well. And you'll see this many times, not just in the US, I send them
but even later on, for example, Mr. de la and he sent his son yazeed, also to be raised out in the desert. So he didn't become soft and pampered someone wants it that was a very soft and pampered and consumed alcohol and things like that. It was not, for the most part lies made against him.
And also to make them fluent in the Arabic of the play.
And then this is the point where we would have discussed the process of being a shepherd because you said that a lot has not sent any profit, except that he was a shepherd first. And you kind of discussed this two weeks ago,
because we wanted to do is to give you an idea of what we're going to be doing as far as the contemplation. So just a quick recap of some of the points that we came up with in class. I said number one, that
that was the kind of data that would always have a prophet become be a shepherd first before he sent it to his people. It teaches a number of things and teaches patience, because the shepherd just sits and watches the sheep has nothing to do really. And you see from the lessons of the person and being a shepherd that he had good taste and good manners that he assisted his uncle, I will tell you who had many children, so he could have just stayed home and been another burden but he went out and got another income.
Also the teachers responsibility because you look after people's wealth. And it's interesting that we're in the process that it talks about responsibility. What does he compare it to?
excellent person compared to a shepherd. When the President talks to us about being together as a Gemma with us, he can
again to the herding sheep, he says the wolf eats from the sheep. That's true straight away from the path. Also, the President is talking about halal and haram. He compared it again to sheep and shepherds he was talking about if the shepherd lets his animals graze near the field of another man. So you see a lot of examples using the what used to be the profession of the prophets are similar. Also, the shepherd gets to contemplate the creation of Allah subhanaw taala because that's all you're surrounded with nature. And he said, nature gets you to remember a lot versus any traffic, for example, just infuriates me. So Panama,
look at all the greatest break ladies, or whatever it is. Five, you, you look at a situation of the sheep and you look at them individually. And you know, if one is injured, you look at it this way, if one has one eye that doesn't work, you look at you look after it more so than others. So similar to human beings, they have different situations, when you look at individual situations, six, you know the situation
of the poor, because typically, in order to work as a shepherd, you have to be relatively poor as well. And that gets you to always feel like a prophet who grew up as a millionaire, for example, may not always remember that poor people.
And we've seen this received, we see this with even politicians, and a lot of them millionaires, they don't care about the poor and those who are poor, they care more about poor.
Number seven, it teaches you to care for a group, as the shepherd cares for the group, the sheep, make sure no wolf comes to them and things like that.
He also watches the sheep from going from straying away from the flock from going astray. And so it gives the Prophet that kind of foresight to be aware of, of dangerous points that their followers might need. Just like any, they're probably dangerous points as you're taking the sheep out and bringing them back.
And you find the best areas to take them to leave them to the best of places. And this is another thing the prophets do, that a lot of time to Allah could have provided, if I suppose the fact that you saw someone had to work and do this kind of job, it shows that a lot of them could have provided for him. But it's a lesson for us as well, to earn your living with your own hands or to value the work that you earn, not to complain, and so on and so forth.
Number 11 also so that no one has any favors to count over the profits or loss that he went out and he actually worked. He didn't get handouts or anything like that, from should have came in, who would later on come and tell them all your profit. But do you remember the favors we had upon you. And number 12, that it keeps people It keeps the Prophet humble that he had a humble job and a humble beginning. And remember when Ilan became the Felisa, he gathered people and he just told him that I used to herd sheep or camels maybe. And then they would give me such a small amount. At the end of the day. He said that to keep himself humble, because he found himself impressed that he's
the Emir of the believers, and so on and so forth. Number 13, that sheep themselves are gentle animals, so you can steer them using gentle methods. Whereas if we compare it to camels, because they're rough, and they're
unruly, so you have to be rough with the camels as well, but it's the mercy that our brothers lmJ dealt with gentle animals, so then you can also be gentle with it.
it also shows a lot of things it teaches perseverance as well, because an everyday or you do take the sheep out, you wait, as they eat and present and bring them back next day, you do the same thing. So you see the process of them kept this job he did he quit after a day or two, anything like that.
Obviously, you see certain comparisons, how the sheet, you know, their, their heads, and their eyes are lower, and the shepherd looks at things from a different perspective, then the flock that he's looking after. So
So in addition to send them also could see looked at things from a different perspective. The sheep are here, but the shepherd could be at a higher ground so you can watch out for danger and things like that. And this is the same thing as how the Prophet said that it looks at things from a different perspective as her as the
the followers. So probably we see for example, the dunya and then it looks at it towards the alpha and he lets us look from that perspective as well.
Obviously, it shows the person was honest, right? If you if someone is known to be like the leader of the city, the people who wouldn't give him the sheet and say, Okay, go look after them come back, we'll come back to 10. Some of them were taken by the wolves but they weren't so choose that he was honest, and people thought of him as an honest person. It also created
For the idea that you could lose some of your flock, because it happens, the shepherd might lose some of his flock. So it prepares you for that idea that you can lose some of your followers as some people will not go with the initial panel will get them and so on and so forth. And, and also it helps you defend being a shepherd helps you depend on a large region more because of it's because of closeness to nature. So this was just a recap of some of the points that I think the majority of those we came up with as a group. And we did this two weeks ago.
Okay, so now I want to talk about the beginnings of prophecy before the public send them was, was sent. And for our purposes, today, I'm not going to go through the story, specifically, we're going to look at some analysis. And maybe we can do the story of maybe the next class or something like that. But I want us to look at some things that are quite important, because a lot of us are somewhat familiar with the story of Revelation. And I want to look at what are called the blind spots.
He was in your field of vision, but there was a blind spot. So perhaps we know the story, but a few more contemplations would make it a bit clearer or something like that.
So before the province senator was approached by debris analysis around
before he was approached by others, and
he began to see dreams, and he would see things and they would happen the next day, just as he saw them. As one thing. One of the other things, he started to go into seclusion, for a number of days would go into the cave, or sometimes at the last point up to about a month or up to two months, that he would stay in the cave. And
so some of the things were like a preparation for the porcelain for what is about to come. For example, one of the things is on the way to the cave, he would hear the trees, and he would hear things, giving him a set up. So that
said, I'm alika solo prophet of Allah. So he would hear these voices saying
a lot on his way to the mountain or to the case. And he asked, you read about that. And to be honest, those were the trees and rocks giving you set up, play. So
individual services in a heartbeat. I know a rock in Mecca that used to greet me whenever I passed by, and I know where it is not. But so this, what is the benefit of this, it's like preparation, and the results of them is being prepared for a bigger message. So you start to see strange things and strange things start to happen to you, then it makes it easier to accept the strangest of things to realize that I'm coming to you, in the case toward revelation coming to you or which, which happened shortly thereafter, seeing children in his original form, that's something that was really difficult upon the generations when babies also don't fainted when you saw them really, really difficult. But
all this is preparation. So trees, rock speaking, but he didn't know where the voice was coming from seeing things and then the next day would happen exactly as you saw them all this is starting to prepare themselves, for lack of a better term strange things that are going to happen.
Then there was other things, other things that were preparation, but they were done earlier, for example,
when the Navy saucer landed, his his chest was opened. And
the angel opened his chest and they took out a small black object. And the angel said have that have the shape on it, this is what the shaitaan will have gotten from you meaning of any reaching you and luring you or any tempting or anything like that, whatever the shaitaan will have done for you here is took it out, and they throw it out. And it was washed in a disk which is located.
I don't know if there's nothing in Western culture that resembles it. But it's like, it looks almost like a bowl, but it's really big like this. And it's not totally any concave shape, but it's the more angular okay.
And this is we're looking how about this a lot of places overseas. That's how if you hand wash a garment, you put it on it this? Yeah. Okay, great. So now some people are
the interest brought the interest of gold, and the hardest porcelain was opened like that, and this object was removed, and also the facilities cart was washed in it. Also this happened before the restaurant. We're gonna discuss that today.
But again, why did why did the operation calling this operation because it's preparation, even though the person was still a child here, but this is even as a child
This preparation was made for.
Now some you find some people in here we meet Muslims. We don't care if non Muslim don't believe this story, especially if they don't believe in Allah or
anything. But some people, some Muslims, and some authors had a problem with this story.
And the only real arguments you if you hear them, they sound absolutely ridiculous. They say things like, how could that happen? without, you know anesthesia without any really without sterilization without cutting instruments, the angel will open someone's chest tell you the heart and that person still alive, wash it. And they said nurses also say they wash it in terms of the water and then return it. But what's wrong with this? What's wrong with this line of questioning?
Tell me this line of question.
Consider the surgeon. The surgeon is Jeffrey, one of the angels, one of the strongest and most powerful of the angels from the leader amongst the angels, that's the surgeon. Now do I need to ask about anything else? Hello. scalpel that Forget about it. sterilization? No, that's the first thing. So if the last time the other one, something like that to happen, it's possible.
And one time a man, this is anonymous, the one time asked me, and you know what they mean by this kind of question. So you really believe that, that your profit travelled on a winged horse
and made it to huge distances in a short period of time? I said, Do you believe in a god? If there's a God? Then If your answer is yes. could he do that? If you want to do and you have to be yes, you can say no to it. There is a God. And he wanted to send His Prophet on a winged horse even though it wasn't a winged horse. But suppose you wanted to send his profit from one place to another horse? could he do it? The answer is always. I can only be yes. You can say no. If you wanted to, we would stop once upon a dad who do that one. So it's possible that there is a God if you don't believe in a god, you're asking the wrong question. let's establish that there is a God first. Don't ask me silly
things like that. let's establish there is a God first.
the By the way, a lot of this is simple, logical, a lot of people don't have it. When it comes to religion. They're smart, and math and physics, when it comes to anything, you just lose all their intelligence for some reason. So one time a woman also asked me this question. So she said, Do you believe in these things when you believe and he even said they have a problem with Jesus walking on water?
Whether or not that happened is not the issue. The issue is suppose Jesus, okay, they sent by Allah was to perform a miracle and walk on the surface of water. So after the Mulligan God, she said, No. So why would you expect to believe in something like this. So the first few cells within God, anyways.
So all this was preparation for the process of setting them to receive what is going to come in the future. Okay.
So now I want to consider the types of revelations, right, the types of Revelation, there is one types of inspiration, let's call it
the way pantalla brings the message to the public, the way that it inspires the prophets of Allah, etc, the different types,
we've put them into seven categories. And for the most part, they more or less stayed the same with a lot of the scholars, sometimes you just see, you just see the grouping is a little different. I need, for example, Revelation through the age of religion to the age that has different forms as well. So some scholars put that as one group and put the forms of subheadings will explain the types of revelation one type of idea is a solid, how solid they are, that the person will see a true dream. Okay. And we know that the dreams of profits are part of Revelation. And they are true. For example, when he saw that he was
in the heart of a man and he knew that I saw himself slaughtering you, sacrificing you in the dream. So he didn't wake up and say, Well, what about a dream and just going into business? He saw it was he knew that the way of the prophets is true, you have to act upon it. The problems are centered on so the Rokia that there's going to be a lot of debt and there was
basically that loss of personal sovereignty.
Drilling first, right? And he knew that there was going to be heavy losses for the Muslim army and he will work to close alarm, because he was expecting something like that to happen.
So the true dreams of profits, that's one way of inspiring a message and his messengers or in his
true dreams, the second is enhanced and enhanced, he refers to knowledge that Allah Subhana Allah will cast in the heart of the prophets of Allah, when making like
in issues of rulings or a gun like that. So this is that Allah subhanaw taala will cast the knowledge in the heart of the prophet SAW said, this is another thing. A third time is that enemies are certain we'll see the angel and the angel
around in front of him and speak with him directly. in human form. We know this happened multiple times, right? We know the famous adage of when a man who none of the companions would ever see is wearing clean white clothes, dog hair, not dirty, not dusty. So none of us knew him. He must be from out of town, but he didn't have any signs of travel on him no dust, or anything like that. He came in he asked him certain questions. And he would tell him, you're correct. They said we were surprised that he would tell him asked him and tell him that you refer to when he left. So the President told, you know, that wasn't he said that you really can't teach you your religion. So he
would you really came in the form of an angel. Sometimes he would come in the form of a human being, he would come to school to see mostly in the form of a man, or one of the companions, his name was,
delegated can be a lot, he would come in the form of vision couldn't be more specifically, there wasn't any specific reason. And he's very accurate reason why he would come in the form of the haircut specifically. But it was mentioned that addition
was very handsome, actually, it's befitting that the angel comes in the form of an answer,
right? comes in the form of an ugly guy look, or is this
instance. So it's different in that it comes in the form of a handsome human being.
But so that was three now here's where some, there's also some times where
the, the angel will come in his original form, meaning debris companies original form, and that happened only how many times twice, twice, one right after the cessation of Revelation. Revelation stopped for a while. And the President then started to learn for CGT and he went out to the cave again, when he came out, he saw
his original form. And, and he had 600, Willys scholars stay here is not counted out of 600. He was informed later on that there was 600. And he had uncovered the entire horizon. And some narration stayed across to the man who fainted about one scene that's such a great site. Others say that and he stayed fixated in his place for a very long time afterwards, and when he could finally move on, he ran to fidelity law. But also
the second time was when introduce Arsalan ascended to the heavens and they were going towards the city of Mandela the tree, the furthermost laboratory is in color and English and intellipoint also inside the villa is set up again in his second for all of us, who know the lesson of any disability, this is talking about seeing the second form or in his original form for the second time. Now, so, if I was coming in the form of human being
original form, all this sort of started with categorize it as Generally, the angel meaning debris approaching in the resources and under it, they make subcategories. So, then they will that group of causes could say one two drinks to enhance three, the angel degree and they would be in the form of a coming in the form of the human being be coming in his original form. See, just here a integrate on a salon speak and this is for our purposes. The fourth one fourth one is that hearing degree Larissa speak, this is the revelation and it was very difficult, very difficult physically on the positive side, learn what you would hear the IRS and specifically the IRS being revealed in this
way. And it would be the discovery process that he would enable
Be like very heavy applying literally. And he would sweat it on a day when it's cold like the incident of the city was a cold night and could see beads of sweat coming down the forehead of the profits of a lot of sediment very difficult on him. They also discovered he would in his breathing and be heavy like snoring like someone who's sleeping and he's snoring. And so he's really really heavy that if you were on his camel, the camel would have to sit from the weight on that if he was in his thigh or on top of his head and is on top of someone's back or something like that. They would say that my phone almost broke from the waves really, really difficult on in the Resource
Center. That was number a number five actually. Then number six, what Allah subhanaw taala inspires him directly and also it could be with almost Takada or, and debris Dyson would inspire in his heart directly. This is in the poll elocon fu money in it this would be cast into his heart, this knowledge or this inspiration. For example, in one Hadith, the prophet Selim says in this net further fury, that
debris has nothing to do my heart. So it's cast into my heart. And then what does he said. So we started by saying debris cast this into my heart. And then he said that no soul will die until it gets all of it. That's in the heavens, all the way. And then in describing other things in the body, but the point is this holiday, for example, it was something that was inspired directly into the heart of the seller, either by Elijah legend, or by the prophets of Allah who said them.
And then the last thing is what Allah Subhana Allah says directly, not through an angel directly to the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
So these are seven categories or types of revelation or types of inspiration, that process. Now, probably a lot of us knew the majority of these titles, or we knew all of them, we just really didn't put them in numbers or categorize in such a way. But now we can contemplate together why these titles in one way there are seven different types of inspiration. We all think about it for a minute, I'm sure we're going to come up with all the possible answers to this question
for the panelists to go for the
depending on the degree and the importance of the message, and just like the heading that we just mentioned, that no one will die until they get every goal, the risks that are the provision and sustenance that's allotted for them in the heavens. And imagine in order to get just this simple message here to everyone, and then go all the way ascend to the heavens, go to the furthermost lock tree and alone tell him this message. So it's not as important as the Messenger of Allah. It also it shows you it's based on the degree of the message. And there's some things that are extremely important like Salah of Las pantallas pronotum himself gave the message to the sender and it's just
a message like you know, you get all your lists and then you die was also something almost equal to solid.
Okay, so it definitely shows the pleasure of the Prophet sallallahu. And this, these are a lot of them are honored in more than one way and ascending beyond any where any of the ages have gone. This is an honor for the purpose of being a Canadian mobilizer within a minute or less there, the two Canadians are the problem setting them and most artists are on the cutting edge of a lot. So the President gets us on a be the carry of us kind of data. Also, it's just the honor to see such magnificent sights like the form of debris or dirt in his original form is also a great honor for the person and food shows his place are seldom children degree of the message was
excellent. So that's another point. It serves as a test for the believers. And it's a test for the believers when they hear the size of
a test or not. And some something was okay.
About the 600 women covering the horizon. And other people believe in the process, everything they saw was a big test for the Muslims is a huge test, and a Boogeyman for the first time in his life with brilliant calling people to come to see to the promises, because he knew that would send them away from Islam. And it is said that some people left Islam and then they went to Berkeley. And they asked them, How could you believe this and so on and so forth. So it's also a test for others, it says for the believer, and in
this webinar, we discuss personal hard was washed some Muslims today, I cannot happen without him dying
is a test for them. Excellent. So we've got a three, I've got eight points here follows the screen.
Okay, it can definitely could reinforce the belief in the angels saw the angels. So they enjoyed his original form, the angel comes and brings the message and, and the type because also the founder had issues with the angels who just had issues with specific angels for the
Suppose he was gearing
depends on the situation. Okay. So there's definitely a mercy in the variety of ways to proceed and get inspired. Definitely. There's a mercy, I imagine, because we look at the difficulty of when the revolution comes apart and revelation comes, it's so difficult upon and it's so heavy on him physically, his breathing is like snoring. Sweating on a cold day is very, very difficult. He's fatigued when it's over. So is this isn't this a mercy, that there are different, there are other ways and it's, it leaves that difficulty of him. And
also, it's okay.
Also, for example, suppose the only way the person got any message from debris is debris appearing in his original form. And it is also the man sitting with the companions in the masjid. They asked him a question. And then suddenly everybody sees
his original form.
So there's a mercy in the different ways of illustration, excellent. Something that's
separate from the beautiful, so that there's no confusion between the revolution in Oregon, and anything else. Very clear difference. This one really like, like the ringing of the bells ending as it comes, or also the buzzing of the bees that sound. And it's difficult and heavy and waiting on the profit center that's different than most just inspired in his heart by allows him to do for inspired biodegraded is set up for what he sees in a in a rodeo in a true dream. So it makes it clear the difference between what's going on for sure. And what was just inspiration and what is a dream. And what is also different between dreaming. And the idea is to have you have a dream about
something you're concerned with and things like that. So it's very clear, it says the Koran apart from everything else.
Okay, absolutely. It is not restricted to one way of approaching his profits have allowed a senator. And he can do it in multiple ways. Each one has its own benefit, and each one has its own advantage.
Sweating in the middle of a cold night, so that you can
to witness this.
Excellent. Excellent, very good.
Very nice point. So that's how you can be witnesses to these things. And it's not like you can make use of sweat in the middle of a hot and cold day. If you can please do it now. This probably took us an hour. So you couldn't just not really hot and sweaty. Something like that happened in you know, so the person couldn't just do this on command at any moment. So there's a have a weakness and it's also adjusted the truth of what's happening to the process. And then also they could see him in the Gypsy jabril in human form, like they did in the idea of the questioning, or like when he would come in the form of the head canopy and sort of Milan I saw him was it
Instead of most of the time,
they were also
very nice. Did you like that appointment?
The processor, couldn't control which one was coming. And then also more proof, there is a genuine profit. Remember what happened till after the incident of the day.
After this is a tough situation, people almost fighting in the mystery. And the person who doesn't have any proof to disprove it. He doesn't believe what they're saying about it. But because he's in the place of a judge, he can't just dismiss it. He's a judge. You can't dismiss it without evidence. That's the reason why, for two months, what happened? Two months, no organization,
this is produced as a game. This is proof. This is a genuine product. If anyone were an imposter, and his own family is attacked like this, they would wait two months, maybe two minutes, and then immediately Oh, the Lord revealed this to me pay attention immediately. But it wasn't within the control center to
say, okay, and it's not like a balloon
pushes a button, but he gets it immediately. So it's it's excellent, very nice point. So the problem, the fact that President couldn't control it, which one was coming at it, so many benefits behind it? Very nice.
I think I mentioned that the leaving no room for doubt, if it's something is a revelation, or just a thought that I'm getting right.
And I think also mentioned that you might need different revelations at different times, not just because of the importance, but like you said, personally, I'm sitting with his companions. If you had to be lived in southern New York City, it would be difficult for everyone,
by anyone? And of course, it is there's additional proof that he was a real profit.
Now, Can anyone think of anything else.
So we came up with about
about 11 points or something like that.
I'm getting close to total
fairness. So tonight, we see like, this is kind of what we're talking about in doing this entire theater class is not just to tell the stories only we're going to do that, I promise you, it's coming up, we're going to do the story. But the idea is to look at events that we already know, and then re examine them again, and we can come up with so many different points of benefit from it. And one of the things we will develop beginner learners that will see the depth of this, see that it's really, really deep, and we have so much to learn from each incident, don't just read over it and skip over quickly. You come to these fine points. And you ask why this question.
But I'm very good. Maybe let us we will do the story of
the story of the the revelation. And there's some interesting, interesting things in the game. For example, The Prophet said that when he came and you look how he had posted and also a lot of hotel, giving him the right wife at the right time. And these are so supportive. So so wise, so intelligent. And you really did in the beginning of prophethood. Specifically, notice his second wife, who was it?
and how appropriate that she was a second wife because she is known for what specifically.
So she is an older woman. So she took care of his household because now
his wife and his supporters illegally law and had died and his uncle dies. And they start to attack him even more. And he has three young daughters in his home and so on and so forth. So it's so appropriate that she's an older person. And she's able to the old enough that her the daughters of the poster said Lenin can look to her as the mother figure. Imagine Alicia was second in order, and she is younger or the age, it's very hard for them. And they don't need her or couldn't take her as a mother Lee type of figure. So it makes a lot of sense also share a good sense of humor, right?
This minute attorney used to go leave early, because he used to love her company. She had a good sense of humor that's so appropriate to come after the year of syrup, so appropriate.
So even his marriages you must have had them happen at the right place at the right time. So Khadija, the law has been an excellent example if you look at her wisdom, digital approach is eliminated.
in a panic and say, cover me up or wrap me up. So what did she do?
She erupts. And then it sounds simple. But if you think about it, this is a brilliant any wise woman, because she just relaxed after he calmed down. Then she asked him what happened? You appreciate that.
I'm sure my buddies appreciate that. Because you come home and you have a problem.
I need to just you know, your shipping and I need to go to bed. What is your wife do? Know? What happened? What happened? No sleep? No, you got to tell him what happened for them. But I have two kilometers instead of one.
So while she did what he wanted, let him calm down. Then she asked him the question, also from her wisdom, after he explained to her What happened? What did she say to him? He said, Look up consider NFC, like, I'm afraid for myself, meaning Am I going crazy or something? When she tells him in his analysis, so intelligent, they know not you alone and let you go to waste like this. And then she starts to mention his good character, you know, taking care of, you know, keeping the piles of wounds and taken care of the poor the orphanage, he immediately started to analyze No, nothing bad will happen to you. You're not going crazy. You're too good at first. And then when she goes to get
a third opinion that should take him to
Nova Nova. And this was also very intelligent. She takes him to a learn math, someone who knows of the Scripture and what was his religion.
So she takes him to learn math. And she doesn't take him to the local witch doctor, the sorcerer and she wasn't Muslim yet. Okay, which is how today Muslim woman something bad happens. Let's call the the witch doctor. They go to the guy dark room bells ringing
you know, throwing things in the air. Why? This is not any. So she's not even an instrument she immediately thinks to take him to the right place because she's so intelligent, so wise. And one of the notes when the person describes to him what happened? He tells him, the one that has come to you is enamels, an album and loneliness Allah, Allah
He said, this is the basically tell us the great angel who has been who came down to Moosa, this conversation, he is a Muslim, and not Asian.
He's Christian, whether he says,
that's a good, good, good guess. This is something else. Because he was Christian. In the other sense, he didn't believe most product.
It was profit. And they said, they didn't believe that about him. That's why he said that.
He didn't say
okay, so, let us do this, the this some of the scholars have categorized the different stages of the Tao of the Prophet sallallaahu Sen.
And in his heart, he wrote in the different scholars have mentioned in different ways, and it doesn't really make too much of a difference, because some of them basically, combined two of the stages together and others. So there is the private dialogue possible to give Dawa in private, then there is open dialogue with the tongue, Muslims giving Dawa openly to people, and there was open dialogue along with the physical confrontation of a specific group, then there is open to all without any confrontation, then there was opened our along with physical competition to all those who oppose the
evidence have mentioned the prospect of giving that away in private for three years. The private data that stage is three years of
I know, we all know this. But if you think about it, it's you feel like how much preparation care intricacy was involved in this done three years ago, just keeping it as is telling this person quietly, turn that person in home, thinking to this person, never public, never, never a word out of publicly three years of private data. And instead of the person who started by column goes on, he felt would keep the messages secret. He approached people who not only really feel that they would accept it, but they would also keep it a secret. And he found a number of interesting things.
Okay, first of all that I need, let's look at some of the the early
some of the early the earliest
The Muslims or the young the law, what are commonly known now what are called no for never ever mentioned again in this year, except for the short medium.
And when they want
a one he died shortly thereafter, five is the paradise where the hellfire
missile, Saul said himself,
I saw one of them nofas dragging his garments in Paradise, why? He didn't say I bear witness to him with a profit of what how did he become Muslim? And remember the conversation.
I want to know what you're going to say that look, I remember he said, Nathan equip them via JSON, and it says, I wish I was young. So I can support you, when you people send you out of your village. And then the results and I said, Oh, my god, they're going to send me out of the village. And he said, No one comes to his people with what you came with, except that they sent a model sent out by so the only the only thing that he showed was his intention to support the positive sentiment, the scholars uses his evidence to show the strength and the importance of your hear your intention. All he did was say, I wish I was young, so I can support you in the center or your your town, your
village. And that was enough. And that's why the person who said I saw no foot dragging his garments on a nice long flowing garment, dragging them in engine. But so for the Euro, Milan, what up if you want to count him and even let the pilot who is 10 years old, I'm gonna come back to one with the personal approach a 10 year old without overcrowd your mind, they did inherit that they didn't handle it was like
in the household in the process. And then Saturday, we will pursue the young also as my son, he was also young, and he relatively benign. So better than one, and he was young, I've got my mouth.
And then many of the slaves and the wife played a number of things.
The Prophet said lamb would give the Dharma in private who said it for three years. So he didn't make it public, publicly said and he called people to Islam or publicly said of course, three long years, it's all in secret, all approaching people on a one on one basis or the other people like Oh, look, look and others approaching others on one on one basis.
Now you probably know that either.
When he came to the process, and he became he came into the process to become Muslim, he became Muslim. And he asked himself who is with you?
And the resources
for a free man and a slave. And Subhanallah it's very interesting, this hadith. And sometimes you hear people mention it to show it what an early time I'm a novice according to this law, or the law. He came when he only had one free lamb. And once that was the only meaning a free slip that we learned was that man a worker, a worker was one man and below. Now this is one way of looking at but the more correct way shortlist actually, it shows you how brilliant individual seven was, at that point discover see the problem seven had 60 followers 60 followers, but this was during the private our calling that one secret time. So when I'm nervous, okay, and even though he just became Muslim,
and there is also an understanding of
who is with you. And actually what happened to me. Of course, we all know this. Nevermind, right. Who was sitting with me, I will look and he was sitting with him villa. So when the man asked him who is with you? He said,
hey, why didn't he tell him 60 followers, he know what he didn't mean? Who's with you here physically, instead of whom? How many followers do you have? That's what he meant by the question. But the prophet didn't tell him 60 instead of just to get away from giving him the exact number even though he just became Muslim. But this shows you how planned everything was scholars say and then he saw Selim said a free man and a slave one because he didn't know of nabasa
fantastic. This he doesn't trust him and he doesn't know who he is. He just became Muslim. He doesn't know the and he is one of those people who like they talk a lot. Can't keep a secret. We'll make it public. He does know that. So even though he's Muslim now, and he is entitled to a certain degree of trust. We're not saying is a lie, but I'm not going to give him all the details because I don't know who he might tell. He might just tell his wife and his wife
whatever it is, the man he was traveling, I do know that I'm just trying to give possible examples. I'm traveling this heavy. So
okay, so you do appreciate this. It was very planned very detailed very carefully. Also a Buddha when he came out of the sorry to the person and also, it was early in person told me to go back to his people. And why did he do that part of it also is that he couldn't, couldn't be protected here is coming from from Russia. And if he starts to preach his family material do destroy him, his people aren't there to protect them. So I told him to go back as well. So during the demo in private, a number of things used to happen. The problem is a lot of seldom used to teach in the house of an upcoming novel. And I think we all know this very well. And many centers around North
American are called that a lot of time and things like that. Because so we all know that the positives to teach in the hospital.
But the question is, why in the house,
and then when you know why, you begin to appreciate it more. So now, let's take some of the there are four main reasons that we have.
Or that, at least I've heard from a good number of scholars of analysis,
to are mentioned in the book,
and why the debit, first of all, and upon was not known for being a Muslim. That's the first thing if it was ineligible. Everybody knows.
So that makes sense. You see how brilliant
it is for worse. So one other point, Neville was not known for being a must. That's the first reason. The second thing
was somebody must assume the tribal zone is something very specific here. Very soon, we're enemies of the hash.
And they were known to have to have gone into war against Russia in the past. So nobody would expect the profit from very hashing to be teaching in the house of someone from burning of zoom in the middle of the area of zoom or one area, nobody would expect. The problem that when he asked me to be teaching in the middle of the homeless,
is how brilliant that is. Excellent. That was number two. Number three,
was 16 years old.
Now, because you know, back then you do in the house of the the normal, the older, the house of the 16 year old young man, who would expect that. And then the fourth is, it was near a sofa.
Even though they had the heavy foot traffic there. Now imagine so what does that mean? Nobody would be able to notice that there's a lot of movement, people coming into this house and leaving this house because it's already in a place where there's a lot of movement, really can imagine it was in the middle of a prayer. It's one house.
There's a robot walking?
Well, someone else is coming to that house, or somebody it's very clear, but it's visible. There's so much action in traffic, nobody notices anything. So these are four points. They were again, number one.
Not not to be Muslim, number two, from budding Muslim enemies have been hashing. 316 years old for
heavy traffic areas. The area. Fantastic. So now let me tell you what happened. So now look, this was information that we already knew that he used to teach in private in the House of Lords. And you see it in many books just like that very planning with no spices around it.
And no use any other people know this piece of information. But no, the next time you're sitting in a pseudo class or in a football, and the man says he was teaching in the house,
you will receive the information very differently than the ghost,
And he will say,
Are you going to say that because you know more details. So what's the point? The point we're trying to make is that the more of these sweet details about the Syrah, the more you appreciate the Syrah, the more you appreciate how brilliant and the results and that was, it's not just the story anymore to you each and every time we go and we take more of these points will appreciate the incident more appreciate the speech more and you appreciate the theater more than the guy next to you just knows it as a piece of information whereas you know, about the analysis behind the information. Okay, so in the last 15 or even
less than a minute, let's do this. We're going to look at it that way in the early stages.
We're going to discuss a number of issues. Okay?
Okay, a number of things.
next time, we're going to discuss about the torture and things like that. But first, let's start with this.
The problem is similar then with with giving the secret or kind of in private in the first three years. And he was told by a loss of character Hello, and
Fabien and warn your close relatives or family members. And who should he start with, he starts with people who are most likely going to accept his message. And he starts with those who he loves the most. And he loves him the most makes sense.
Those whom he loves the most, and loving him back the most are more likely to accept this message. There are total strangers on the street. True. That's one. So that's why then you don't find it that it's strange that he came down to it. And he was 10 years old, he wouldn't let him down. Even if 10 years old, then his daughter was about 10 years old at the time, Propecia was 700, female six and fallen about one or two years old at the time. But so why call young people and then we said
these people were young.
These people were young. So why call the young people I suppose a number of things.
Definitely, they'll be there for to carry on the work. And if it gets down to all the 90 year olds, that will finish in two years.
Excellent. Also, that they're not, it's easier to change them because they're not deep rooted in the old ways, the ways that our ancestors, macaroni and
cheese to worship. So there's the difference between someone who's been 50 years worshipping idols, and someone for example, like identical on who never worship, or someone who only was into that for two years versus 50 years big difference. So one is easier to change the Shabaab because they're not deep rooted in the ways of their ancestors. Also, this part of the psychology is youth, they like new things. They like things that are different, that are against the currents and things like that. That's another thing. They also used to have strong azima they have strong h azeema.
willpower, and they're motivated that resist like that. And they can withstand the hardship. Any, no doubt, a 10 year old Muslim, at that time can withstand the hardship of difficulties more than someone who's 90 years old. And you know, that was beating us what the hell is burning?
Okay, number of things.
Then there were a number of issues here. You hear that? A lot of times you understand that the the early Muslims, the majority of them, were freed slaves, the poor, the destitute. And this is a very popular thought. Okay, so now we're going to now go against something that's been very popular that we always hear the first of all, because we're always all the poor people that are so keen to free slaves and things like that. It's actually not very true scholars, scholars did an analysis of the 67 earliest Muslims, okay. Scholars went back looked at the 67 of the earliest people to come into Islam. Guess how many of them were from the poor, the slaves and the destitute? 1313 out of 67
that were poor and non Arabs, why we mentioned him on that, because we mentioned you
know, try to protect them.
And nobody could protect them. So 13 were from the poor and from the non Arabs and from the free slaves. So why is it that most people think that only the free slaves and the poor were around the profit center? Because they were the ones who were tortured and beaten in amazing ways and horrendous ways. And so their story spreads more than obviously, if nobody was beating, and if the first one a never got beaten in person, because guess who makes the news person because nobody wants to hear about a person. He was untouched. But are you telling me this? Yeah. So what happened is now
And for example, without Milan, everybody knows Villa historic children, they may not know that they know Villa, they know the story.
a number of things, of course, so the excitement is more than the stories of people who were beaten and tortured and punished. So we started to think in our head that only the poor were the followers, as opposed to, as we said, an analysis of the first 67 Muslims, how many report 30 and non Arabs and things like that. But
the reason we hear more of the talk that we don't hear much about the torture of the nobles, because the nobles were protected by their people. So the melotti non Arabs or the slaves, they didn't have tribes to protect them. And they were punished, and their punishment was made publicly. So not only were they punished, and others were not punished, when if the nobles were punished, it was done as a private home affair. And when the people who the poor were punished, it was a public thing. Okay, I will take examples.
For example, but not on the law. I know he had an unclothed that will drop him in a strong Matt, and loaded up on fire. Who did it is uncle. So almost like an internal home affair, uncle?
Very different. So it's almost a personal thing Done.
Done at home. Versus Beloved, it was a public thing. Kids street people all over America
were different. So if so, the nobles when they weren't punished, it was done by family members. And it was done as let's call it a private affair.
mother does not
know, even though there were times when she would, they would whip him out.
But for the most part, it was done. So therefore, it was not as popular and not mentioned as much as those like Vinod, where it was made popular or near the safe for him to
dedicate his time and just kind of beat her. They tortured her till she lost her eyesight. And I'm gonna belong and beat her again, who told her that? I have to have to stop now and stop because I think you got enough feeling because I'm tired from the
play. So, so far, what do we say we said
the melodic didn't have their free service and the poor didn't have a choice to protect them. So if they were punished, it was done publicly. The others, the nobles, the editor tried to protect them. And if they were punished, it was done more of a pirate private type of thing in the long run and says, oh, women
are the first to make their Islam public or second. Then he mentioned the profits do a lot of tournaments, and every worker and a mom and his mother Samia, and souhei and biller, and that the seven the first to make the system public now the first to become a Muslim, to make it public. Notice now it says this is as for the prophet SAW a lot of settler a lot of protected him with his uncle,
protecting him with his people.
And he says, As for the rest,
people to protect him, he took them and made them wear iron armor and bury them in the sun. So this narration is not emphasizing the point we're trying to make. So that a book was protected by those people. And then the rest, they were attacked.
It looks a little high level it used to tie the St. Louis eight in the football. So he didn't
say he didn't say he was his nephew.
I'm gonna get on my knees to tie him up and torture. So you see how it was again, a family kind of affair. Yeah.
This is a narration from an elite Elite in Medina. So
he says that men for a minute. Okay. And this is actually I think the last part at the very end when he says men in front of any muscle zone can lead to a sham isn't worried who's
the brother of the
generation? So these men says the little delegation from from the tribe comes
and instantly said to is probably really, and they try to discuss with him how to prevent his brother and when he is giving the narration and other people from banning Muslims from entering into Islam. This is the people that they're saying
And he gave them permission. But one of them is killing them. So basically what's happening here is that a men dignitary
came to meet this man who was an important man. And he was shouting. They said, Look, we have a problem. And we want to make sure people from arbitrage zoom, don't enter. Sorry.
Yeah, we want to make sure people from our tribe don't enter into Islam. Make sure this doesn't happen. And your brother also we want to make sure because they know that
we want to deal with it. So what are they really doing, they're sending in delegation, and they want to do go through the proper channels and do the proper paperwork. So they can get the green light to be able to beat and torture and stop people. And he showed me what he says he gives them permission basically, just make sure you don't kill anybody. Honey bees do what you need to do, just don't kill anybody. And so you see how, when, what what I'm trying to prove with this narration is that when tribal tribal members did it to their own tribe, they connected within the tribe. So, the tribe will be illegal to be in
the capital within the tribe because they know the history wars started and things like that, even if the person is not Muslim is a big deal to them. And that was why we know very well that
the the family decided to kill it in the in the guardian and men from every tribe, so that way, anything could be totally against one group or one truck. But
okay, so we said 70% of the rich. One of the wisdoms behind that is that we don't see Islam as a revolution of poor people that gets the rich, that's very important. 70% of them are were from the rich. So no one can categorize Islam as revolution. And even sometimes Muslim writers will say
them like the Mohammedan revolution.
Revolution is when a man decides to go against his people. This is not the case. This is a man who got revelations from a lot and he was sent to serious people. Those make don't make it look like it's some guy was put up against these people and things like that. So the fact that wisdom and the benefits that we have 70% of being from the rich is that no one can categorize it or classify Islam as a revolution of poor against rich overcome the law and had 40,000 Golden hours when he first became Muslim. And then estimation is about a ton of the 5000 became extremely poor. man who was known for being very rich well dressed, had the best clothes became poor, after the
after his his not so rich before and became poor later. So anyway, so we'll end here in Charlotte, for coming out despite the weather for tentative listings a lot more
