What are the National Health Care Health Plan? What is it that I already know about? We Labelle Whelan what is OpenACC Tina?
Would you help me Minister Mian cola for your Toby Aruna Sena. Meanwhile, Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Last week we looked at how the Tao of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started.
And so we mentioned that the first stage or the first phase of the data was
the discrete data or the secret of the hour where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was giving Dawa only to those close to him. Those he knew those were around him, those who he trusted.
We also mentioned that even though that was the case,
that doesn't mean that everything was secretive about them.
And so Quraysh they had an idea
about the Muslims.
And the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was teaching them.
They knew about their Salah that they would pray, and some of the things that they were doing.
And so not everything was secretive.
But the difference was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that phase was not
the entire society, he wasn't giving dower to everyone publicly.
And we mentioned how that phase of the Dow lasted for approximately three years.
And so eventually, that stage in that phase of the Dow were ended with
the revelation of Allah statement, in Surah, to shoot out
when the Rashi reticle or carabin.
Were under eye she reticle carabin. And Warren, starting with
your closest relatives,
Warren, starting with your closest relatives, walk through the general hotel humanitarian Kameena meaning and be kind and compassionate with believers will follow you
for in household care for in the very meta Maroon. And if they disobey you then say I am certainly free of what you do.
Now, this Surah Surah, to show our.
It mentions the stories of the prophets,
and in particular the story of Musa alayhis salam from the beginning of his prophethood
the Exodus, the hedgerow that he made with Bani Israel
and the drowning of Iran.
All of that is mentioned
in the Surah. And so all of the stages
that Musa went through in his Dawa to Pharaoh own and his people are mentioned in the Surah. So it's as if Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have a sample
of what he will face.
As he starts calling the people to Islam publicly, for the first time,
the that look, you're going to face hardship.
You're going to face challenges.
They're not going to be accepting of you. They're going to oppose you. They're going to be hostile towards you.
But if you persist patiently, eventually, the victory will be yours, and not theirs.
now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam moves forward with the command of Allah to start warning, who I see your article could have been your closest relatives.
And so before it was just
Who the prophets on Allahu Allah was and would choose to share the message of Islam with
like his wife, those who were in his immediate circle Ali robiola, one and the others that we mentioned.
And anyone who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought,
who would be receptive to the Dawa.
So even others who are not from his, you know, close, immediate family or friends, such as we mentioned examples of people who came from outside of Makkah total strangers, but they were receptive, they wanted to embrace Islam.
But now he is commanded to,
to start giving Dawa publicly.
So he rallies several important members of Quraysh
specifically from Benny Hashem
the family that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was wrong.
So he gathered his uncles, and his cousins.
And he gets them together. And it is mentioned that there were approximately 45 men who were present in this first meeting.
So the first one to speak, was not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
but rather Abu Lahab
and so he immediately
started talking. So he said,
Oh, Mohamed, these are your uncle's, these are your cousins. Speak to the point.
But first of all, you have to know that your relatives are not in a position to withstand all of the herbs.
Another point you have to bear in mind is that your relatives are sufficient for you.
If you follow their tradition, if you follow our ways, and the ways of our forefathers, it will be easier for us than to face the other clans of Quran are supported by the other Arabs.
So basically, what is the Buddha have tried to tell him?
What was Abdullah have tried to tell him that
don't try to face off against us.
And then he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I have never heard of anyone who has brought more harm to his relatives, Daniel
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remained silent, and said nothing in that meeting.
So now the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam invited them to another meeting. And he managed to secure a good audience.
And so he stood up, and he delivered a short speech,
explaining clearly what was at stake.
And so he started by praising Allah subhanho wa taala.
And then he said,
A Guide can never lie to his people.
I swear by Allah Who there is no god except Him, that I have been sent as a messenger to you in particular, and to all people in general.
I swear by Allah, you will die just as you sleep, and you will be resurrected just as you wake up. And you will be called to account for your deeds. It is then either held forever, or paradise forever.
So this is the message that the Prophet sallallahu himself left him with.
So among those who were in the audience was
the other uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Talib
Abu Talib replied,
We love to help you, we accept your advice, and we believe in your words.
These are your relatives whom you have gathered
and I am one of them.
But I am the quickest to do whatever you want me to do.
Do what you have been ordered to do.
I will protect you and I will defend you. But I cannot quit the religion of Abdulmalik.
And so this was the first sign of support from Abu Talib.
Then, Abu Lahab interjects and he says to Abu Talib, I swear by God that this is an evil thing.
You must stop him before the others do.
And then Abu Talib replied, I swear by Allah to preach
add him as long as I am alive.
So what happens next?
Now that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has this assurance
from his uncle Abu Talib
to protect him to support him. He now moves on with his next plan of action.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
gathers the leaders of Kadesh
and so it is mentioned
in Bukhari and Muslim
by Abdullah ibn Abbas, Radi Allahu Anhu
of what happened after these verses were revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam these verses from Surah a Shuara.
those who are nearest to you.
Even Abdullah says,
when these verses were revealed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went out
and stood on Mount of Safa.
We all know
mount Asafa whereas mount or suffer
in Mecca were
placed right next to the cab, not far. In fact, it was around this area that
people used to gather.
So it's a central location.
So even ambassadors the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went out and stood on Mount suffer and called out wow, so about her.
This term is used
to sound the alarm.
is to you. It's used in emergencies.
That if there's an enemy ready to attack you, you announce Wasaga or any other danger.
And so everyone who heard this call, immediately rushed
to the source of the voice.
And even those who could not go
they sent someone who would report back to them a representative.
And so when everyone gathered
when everyone got together
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam astir
he asked him if I were to tell you
that there is an army behind this mountain that is ready to ambush you. That is ready to attack you.
Would you believe me?
Would you believe me?
And so they said, Yes.
We have never heard you telling a lie.
And so the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam once he got that assurance from them
once he got the answer, he was looking for it.
He then said to them,
then I am here to warn you
of a severe punishment
that will befall you if you don't believe.
I'm here to warn you I am a warner.
So here are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is putting into
putting into practice the Command of Allah and warn those
closest to you the close of kin.
So when rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the people they came thinking
that it was something urgent.
It's something critical.
There's an imminent danger.
And it was
but not for everyone.
When they heard what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had to say.
What was the response?
Abu Lahab stands up
and he says,
Is this why you called us?
Tab Ben Lexa.
May evil befall you for the rest of your day.
So basically, he cursed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So this was when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed what
Tibet Jada abelia have been water
that's the story behind Sudha Tony.
Her curses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah reveal Surah told myself, Tibet, Jada Vela had been WhatsApp, me the hands of Abu Lahab Parrish.
He said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam me you perish. So Allah says me the hands of a Buddha perish, and may He Himself perish.
My older now I'm who man who America said, Neither his wealth, nor his worldly gains are of any benefit to him, because Abu Lahab was a businessman.
And he used to amass wealth.
So here a loss of Hannover data is saying, none of that is going to benefit you.
So you must learn now on that and I hope he will burn in a flaming fire.
And so, there are so many lessons that we can learn from this one incident.
Let us go through these lessons one by one.
The first lesson that we learned
is that when we start our data, we have to start with those closest to us. And that is what Allah subhanahu Attallah is teaching us here. Through the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu
Allah commanded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to start openly preaching.
But he specifically commanded him to start with his closest relatives.
And so this is because
one is responsible for who, for those closest to him, those under him.
We will be questioned about
the those under us, our family,
and those who are closest to us.
Before will be asked about those were more distant from us.
Also, because the Arabs were a very tribal society.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the beginning of his Dawa, he needed support.
He needed the support of his own people, his own tribesmen,
who would stand by his side who would protect him
before trying to go and calling others to Islam.
And so when when other tribes see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has the backing of his, his tribe,
then they won't dare try to attack him.
And so for these reasons, it was important to start
with the close of kin.
The second lesson that we learned
from this incident, is the importance of being straightforward.
And using clear words when giving Dawa.
These were the first words that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose to address Quraysh with
it was a very straightforward
it was to the point.
It wasn't a long speech.
It was just a few words.
I am here to warn you. That's it.
To warn you about what a terrible punishment that awaits you. That's it.
To the point, quick, you got the message. Now if you want more details, let's talk about it.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did that, because Allah subhanahu wa Tada sent the prophets and messengers
with the responsibility of conveying the message in the clearest of terms
by Lao goon will be
conveying in the clearest of terms and that's why the Quran has been described as such.
That it is keytab, a movie, a clear book,
nothing ambiguous about it. Nothing unclear, very clear to the point.
So this means that
when you give dower your message of Islam should not be confusing.
It should not be obscured.
And there shouldn't be any sugarcoating.
Unfortunately, many times when we give that well we confuse the listener.
But Sudha he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not leave any doubts
with the listener.
Here in this example,
If the listener would know that if he believes there is genuine, if he doesn't believe there's hellfire. That's it.
The third lesson that we that we learn from this incident
is the importance of using strategic platforms to give Dawa.
And so here are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had an important announcement to make.
So what did he do?
Did he just say, you know, let's get together someone's house, I have an important message to give you.
Did he send the messages that I want you to meet me at this time, at this place? No.
He went, he looked for the best place to make the announcement from he had an important message to convey. And so he went to Mount suffer, he went on top of the mountain,
it was more of a hill. But he went there.
From where he could basically sound the alarm
and make his voice heard to everyone
whether they want to hear or not.
And so if he sent out for them to say, let's meet, maybe some will come, some will come.
But now he has their attention.
He has their attention. And now he will be able to convey his message.
the one who calls people to Islam must use those platforms
that will get the message across the message of Islam across to all people and in the most efficient way.
And so it's not sufficient for us to
you know, only look for easy ways to convey the message.
We need to go out there,
we need to go to the places where where the people are,
whether it be in the real world, out on the streets, or whether it be online,
on social media, etc.
Where the message will reach the people, whether they are looking for it or not, whether they will be receptive to it or not. Because the job of the messenger and the day
is to convey the message whether the people like it or not, whether they agree with it or not, whether they are receptive to it or not.
The next lesson that we learn
is the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how his own people
the attested to it.
They acknowledged it.
When they saw him standing
on top of the hill,
and he is able to see everything around him. He can see in front of him he can see behind him.
While they could only see what is in front of them, right?
They cannot see what is behind the mountain.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has the vantage point.
led them to conclude that yes,
of course, if you are telling us that there is an enemy about to attack us from behind this mountain.
You could see from there what we can't see.
Add to that the fact that they knew the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very well. And what they knew about him was that he was a Saudi and me the truthful one, the trustworthy one, the one who doesn't ever tell a lie? And that's exactly what they said in their answer.
They said yes, we have never known you to not to lie. We have never experience you to ever tell a lie. So why wouldn't we believe you?
The next lesson that we learn
is why some people are not interested.
Why is it that some people don't show interest
in religious talk when you come to them to talk to them about Islam, whether they be Muslim or non Muslim
Abu Lahab was very upset.
He was angry. Why?
he had to come leaving his work.
during the official business hours
to come to listen to something according to him is unimportant
for for Abu Lahab
leaving work for talk about the afterlife, about religion, about spirituality about Allah
it's a waste
and so he was only thinking from the material sense
since he thought he could have made more money during that time.
And so Abu Lahab
was not the only one
that kind of way of thinking.
He was speaking on behalf of a lot of people.
And so people they don't want to waste their time
talking about religious matters, they only want to spend their time for things that will benefit them in this present world.
People are not willing to spend their time to know about what will save them in the akhirah
but guess what?
Allah subhanahu wa Tada says about Abu Lahab
that his wealth will do him no good.
The very thing that he was worried about that look, you made me waste my time.
You know, I have my busy to I have my business to worry about. I could have made money during this time. The very thing that he was worried about Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, Not over now. And now who is
neither his wealth nor what nor his worldly gains will benefit it will be of any benefit to him.
the people who rush after wealth in this dunya
dunya will do them no good if they don't live it in the light of Islam.
The next lesson that we learned from this incident
that Surah told us it
was a miracle of the Quran.
It is proof that the Quran is truly from Allah.
It says that Abu Lahab and also his wife are in the hellfire.
It says that they are in the hellfire. That's it.
Their murder is done and overweight. It's not like others who
they have the opportunity to still think about it.
You know, maybe later on down the road, they'll accept Islam.
now with regards to Abu Lahab and also his wife,
Allah mentions in Surah turnesa that they are both in the hellfire.
So how does this prove that the Quran is truly the word of Allah? Basically.
If Abu Lahab and his wife wanted to prove that the Quran was wrong,
all they had to do was say, we believe
we accept Islam.
You know, even if they did that, outwardly, while still having Kufa in their hearts,
they could have disproved the Quran
that the Quran says we are in the hellfire, but now we've accepted Islam.
But no, Abu Lahab and his wife persisted upon their cover and died
upon their cover. And so this surah talks about an event that did not even happen yet.
And that is their death.
Because only once a person dies, do we know whether they're going to the Hellfire or not?
this was fulfilled, you know, this torah and what is mentioned in it was eventually fulfilled.
The final lesson that we can learn from this incident
is that Surah turnesa teaches us that there is no room for tribalism.
There is no room for nationalism,
or the caste system in Islam.
And so we do not unite
based on racial or nationalistic lines.
If that was the case,
then Abu Lahab being from a noble lineage
being the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming from Bengal, Hashem and Quraysh he would have been given a special status.
And he would have been spared from the punishment.
He wasn't to show us
where we come from, and our ancestry
and which family we come from, which tribe we come from, it doesn't matter at all, in the grand scheme of things in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And that's why on the one hand, you have the likes of Abu Lahab, who are going to the hellfire. And on the other hand, you have the likes of some of the slaves who accepted Islam who were from, you could say the lower class in society, the likes of bilaterally Allah Who and others who accepted Islam and who are guaranteed Jana, by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And so now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam starts preaching openly and publicly for the first time.
He starts giving Dawa to
everyone he meets
not spearing anyone.
Until Allah subhanahu Attallah reveal to him
first Darby Mautner we're out Adib animal should keep and sort of total hedger. Allah says, So proclaim what you have been commanded with meaning open the call to what Allah has commanded you with
and turn away from the machete cool.
Turn away from the machine code. Those who don't bother, they don't want to be bothered the likes of the Buddha head. Okay, that's it. You've done your job. Now, I will dine in Mushrikeen. Turn away from the Missouri call, who are not receptive to your data.
And don't let them to distract you. That's the point here. That's why Allah combines between these two things in this area. First Darby mattogno Proclaim go forward in what you have been commanded to do, and turn away from these people. Don't let these people to distract you from your mission.
Now the difference between
this phase of the data that we're talking about now the open public phase, and the previous one, which was
the discrete or the secret of stage, it's quite clear now.
Before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was only sharing Islam with those close to him.
And those he trusted,
it was on an individual basis.
Now he was sharing Islam with everyone in
even those who happen to come from outside America,
he would go to them and he would be giving them down. On top of that, another difference that we notice
is he was now openly criticizing the ways of the machico
denouncing their religion
and the idols that they worshipped.
Showing how it is illogical
to be calling on statues, that have no power, using proof after proof to prove that this religion of yours is false.
And you have to worship Allah alone,
openly denouncing their ways
and attacking their idols.
Whereas in the previous phase of the Dawa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not doing any of that.
He was not getting into any direct confrontation with the Muslim.
He wasn't calling them to Islam, nor was he denouncing their ways or publicly
denouncing their idols and their idol worship.
this is where Kure Chanel sense
this is where kurage now sense
The danger in the Dawa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
because prior to this,
it was only a few people.
He only had a few followers.
And they were
his close friends, his close family members.
he is publicly calling to Islam.
And he's telling us that we are wrong.
And that our ways are wrong and the and the religion of our forefathers is false. And he's attacking our gods.
So now they sense danger. And they realized,
they realize that if they want
their religion to survive, and if they want the ways of their false or their forefathers,
to last, then they have to stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from preaching,
as his preaching will only cause more and more people to accept Islam
and leave a massive impact on the society.
And that is exactly what ends up happening.
And that is also exactly what happens
in any time and place
where the people have the truth, they stand up to call to the truth
and warn against the falsehood and the evil that their societies are drowning in.
The people of falsehood, realize the danger of that.
And they start opposing it.
They start opposing it, they realize that they have to put it to an end.
Otherwise we're gonna we're gonna have serious problems.
When all these people
are leaving our ways, and our customs and our way of life
and they're going to oppose it.
Then what are we going to be left with?
And that's why Allah subhanahu wa Tada says about fear.
What did he say? After Musa alayhis salam was victorious in the
the battle against the magician's.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala told him to flee.
Because viramune are now going to chase you
was a parent who told Musa and his followers to flee.
So what did he say? He said in a ha hula de la silla de Mattoon, Cali Loon,
these outcasts, they're just a handful of people.
Were in the homeland, Allah or even they have enraged us.
We're in our ledger neuron has grown, but we are on full alert, we're gonna go after them.
So history only repeats itself in every time and place. This has been the case.
Whenever the people who have the truth with them stand up to preach it, to spread it.
They obviously with spreading the truth, they have to denounce falsehood.
And they have to show the people
that their ways are wrong.
And so naturally, they're going to be faced with this opposition.
This opposition is from the people who feel threatened,
that their religion and their way of life is now under attack, we need to protect it.
So history repeats itself in every time in place, even in today's day and age, where
Muslims are accused of terrorism, of causing trouble.
They cannot tolerate a spreading the truth of Islam and denouncing their way of life and showing how they are a straight they can't tolerate them
so now what was the first or one of the first steps that Qureshi took
to try to stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So following careful deliberations,
they got together and they said our only option is
to put pressure on him
through someone who's very close to him,
and that was
they went to him, and they requested him to intervene and to advise his nephew to stop his activities.
And in order to attach a serious stamp to their demand, they chose
to touch on the most sensitive area
in their Arabian life
and that was ancestral pride
that we are the best of the herbs. We are Quraysh the people look up to us, the people come here to make hemorrhage.
And so they went to Abu Talib, and they addressed him in the following manner.
They said to him, oh Abu Talib,
your nephew curses Aragon's,
he finds faults with our way of life.
He mocks at our religion and D grades our forefathers,
either you stop him or you have to give him access, you have to give us access to him.
You have to let us to get at him.
Because as we know,
Abu Talib said that he would defend the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he is his defense. They can't come between they can't come between him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And so they went to him. And they said,
you are in the same opposition, as we are in opposition to him. You know, you have not accepted Islam.
And neither have we.
They're, they're trying to come to common terms with Abdullah with Abu Talib.
So, they said, just like you, you are not accepting of his religion. Neither are we. So let us together, get rid of him.
And so, I will call him when he heard this.
He realized their rage and their anger. So he simply tried to calm them down. And he gave them a polite reply
saying that everything will be okay. And he basically tried to put the matter to a close. So they went away.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued on his way of preaching Islam,
and calling people to it.
And so as expected, the Bush raccoon could not tolerate it again.
They see that no change has happened.
So they went back to Abu Talib a second time
to put pressure on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to stop.
So they said to him,
oh Abu Talib.
You are our senior.
And you are you have an honorable status among us.
And we asked you to stop your nephew, but you didn't.
And then they swore that they will soon lose patience.
If he did not stop him, and then it will turn ugly. And then they will fight. And then they will only be one of the two parties that will remain alive.
So this was when Abu Talib took their demand seriously.
And so he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
conveying to him the message that Quraysh
came to him with
and so here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought
that his uncle
was starting to back down
in supporting him
and so he said to him, my uncle
if they were to put the sun on my right hand
and the moon on my left hand,
I will not give up this matter until a law judges or I lose my life.
And so I will totally reply to him. All my nephew, you are telling the truth. I believe you go ahead and continue
in another narration
who is athlete
even Abby Pollack, the son of Bhutan
so we all know of one famous son of Abu Talib, and that is
Ali, or the Lord why Ali ibn Abi toilet is the famous companion.
But he had brothers it had brothers.
He had appeal. He had Jaffa
so after he'll never accepted Islam in the beginning,
he in fact fought along with Quraysh
in the battles against the Muslims, but he ended up accepting Islam towards the end.
So, in this narration
alkyl mentions that
these people went up to Abu Talib and told him that this nephew of yours is disrupting us
in our meetings, and in our places of worship.
He's bothering us. So tell him to stay away from us.
So Abu Talib told that he'll go and call Muhammad for
Surah Surah Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to meet his uncle Abu Talib. And his uncle said to him
Your people are complaining to me
that you are disrupting you're disturbing them in their meetings. So why don't you stop?
So here Abu Talib was not speaking to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the tone of an order. He wasn't saying you have to stop.
But rather he was giving him advice of what he thought would be better for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in response. He looked at the sky
and he said,
do you see the sun?
And so Abu Talib said yes. So Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I am no more capable of stopping
preaching this Deen then you are of getting for me a flame from that
getting the flame from the sun for me. Just like you are not able to do that. I am not able to stop.
So this was Rasul Allah his life.
He was His mission.
It was impossible for him to leave it.
And this also shows us
how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had you're clear in his heart, that he was truly sent by Allah subhanho wa taala.
Without any shadow of doubt.
If this was a false prophet,
a liar who's claiming to be a prophet.
When such pressure is put on him,
he might give him
and we will see you
next week. How
when courage failed
with their tactic here of putting pressure on the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam through his uncle Abu Talib, they resorted to so many other tactics.
They tried one after the other, and they continuously failed. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out strong, confident that he is not going to stop. He's going to continue
and never abandon his mission.
So then Abu Talib said by Allah, our nephew has never lied to us. So go on doing what you're doing.
So I will tell you, he believed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that he could not give this up.
And so when he saw this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he agreed to support him.
He reaffirmed his support.
So it's not that
okay, fine. You go on doing what you're doing, but now I'm going to stop supporting him
even though there's so much pressure on him
to do something to intervene.
But he saw that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was adamant
that he was not going to change
So he said as long as you are going to continue then I'm going to continue to support you
and this is something very very
unique in the case of Abu Talib
That's why even continued he mentions
that it was from the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala
to give the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam such a person to support him,
where's the wisdom?
He was someone who never accepted Islam.
If he had accepted Islam, then that's it.
He would have become their enemy.
But he stayed with them.
While supporting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam added time when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Muslims were weak.
And they had no one.
And so he was in between corruption, the Prophet sallallahu he was he was in their way.
Because of him, they couldn't do anything to him.
So Allah subhanahu Attallah gave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam such a support
at a time when he needed it the most.
And another amazing thing here also
is looking at how we have
two uncles of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam
to paternal uncles. They are both brothers.
And they are both mutually cool.
But look at how one will be in the deepest pits of the hellfire and getting the worst punishments while the other. And the first is Abu Lahab and the other Abu Talib will have the latest punishment as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that he will have the latest punishment in the Hellfire
because of his support for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so the point being that Polish tried everything to stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at this initial stage at this initial phase of the public Dawa.
But they failed,
but they failed.
And so more and more people are accepting Islam.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not stopping
his Dawa and in the method of his Dawa.
Some would say, okay, maybe,
maybe we should
use different words. Maybe we shouldn't
be so harsh against idol worship.
Maybe we shouldn't attack their gods, maybe we shouldn't say that their way is false.
We shouldn't call them out
and say that their religion is corrupt.
And their way of life
is false and corrupt. We shouldn't be talking about these things.
Let us only talk about
worshipping them Allah
and how to get to Jana and that's it.
No, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not change
what he was preaching in any way. And in this is a lesson for us. That no matter what circumstance we are in,
when it comes to the fundamentals of our deen, there's no compromise. There's no sugarcoating
The truth is a truth. And falsehood is falsehood. Call a spade a spade, call things for what they are
called things for what they are. When you see evil in the society around you. Don't be afraid, especially when you have the freedom.
And you're not seeing something that could criminalize you.
You're simply saying that this way of life
is false. It is corrupt. It goes against the fitrah.
And the truth is in Islam,
and look at the beauties of Islam. And look at how Islam has come to save mankind
from these various darknesses layers of darkness.
And so that is what we saw
here with the Prophet sallallahu Allah
Some continuing in his in his tower in the same way.
So next we can shout Allahu Allah we will look at
the next steps taken by Quraysh
in their attempts to stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from giving dower Subhanak Aloha Moby Hambrick. Should we
still Furukawa to Blue Lake wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
