We continue with our weekly CRO halacha.
And we have so far come to
the middle of this era of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And that is the Hijra.
The Hijra from Mecca to Medina.
And so last week we covered the Hijra of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that journey that he took with his companion Abubakar radula right now.
So we'll quickly recap and summarize what we mentioned last week.
And so once Quraysh had realized that
Muslims had the majority of them had left Metka for Al Medina. They saw this as being a threat.
And so they thought that the Muslims will go there will ally with some of the strong Arab tribes
and will mobilize themselves and be a major threat to Quraysh. And so they said, while Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is still here and has not left, let us do something with him, we have to completely finish this threat. So they plotted and they planned
and what they decided on was to to assassinate him. And so we mentioned how Allah subhanaw taala saved him from their plots.
And how Allah subhanahu Italie then gave Rasul Allah who sort of along that he will tell them the permission to leave
to make his road to Medina. And so
he planned out his trip with Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu hai. And they left Mecca. And the journey they took started in the cave, in the cave of a soul of ours out.
And after spending three nights there,
they had their guide to arrive, who took them.
And they left Mecca, on their way to El Medina.
On the way to El Medina, there were several incidents that took place. We mentioned the stories of those incidents last week.
And so there was the incident of Soraka ibn Malik, who,
you know, wanted that prize that bounty that courage had put on the head of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he wanted to capture him, and how Allah subhanahu Attallah saved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from him. We also mentioned
the stories of
two miraculous incidents
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
wanted milk. And so he visited on Amon, this woman
in the desert, and how her goat did not have milk and how he was able to bring that milk out, and also another shepherd,
and other incidents that took place along along the journey.
We also mentioned last week after mentioning almost the entire journey of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We mentioned that there are many, many lessons to be learned many, many lessons that we can derive from this journey from Mecca to
and Medina. And so we mentioned that we will cover these lessons today to be eaten in Lehi to Harlem. And so today,
the plan is to cover all the lessons or as many of them as we can, in whatever time permits.
And so the first lesson that we learned from
the first lesson that we learned, from the Hijra of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the significance of this Hijra
the role it played
in Islam. Overall.
This was one event, that was one of the most important events in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
It was from here, that a new chapter would begin
in the dour of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
moving from a position of weakness, to a position of authority, and of empowerment,
of freedom, not only to practice Islam, but now freedom to also preach
Islam and give Dawa without, without any restrictions.
And this is why
in the time of Muhammad Ali Allahu in his filata,
he had to set the Islamic calendar.
And so before this time, there was no such thing as a calendar for the Muslims.
Rather, the Arabs, their tradition was to simply meant to simply give names to the years.
So they did not have a system. Like the Europeans, the Romans, and the Christians.
Were there years are numbered, but rather, they would know dates and important events by attributing them to years. So this was the year of for example, this was the year of the elephant. And that was the year in which the prophets Ellison was born. And then even
even after Islam until the time of Hammurabi, one when they would give names to the years. So
anything that took place around the Hijra would be would be attributed to the year of the Hydra.
The second of the second year of the hedgerow was the year in which the battle of vertifx took place. So that was called the year of,
of the Battle of better and so on.
But in the time of Ramadan, the Allah who had he decided to set a calendar that would be specific to the monsoons. And so he chose to start this calendar
with the Hijra.
And so imagine he did not set it according to any other important event.
And so every nation, every civilization, they set their calendars to start at very important events in their history.
And so the Gregorian calendar of the Christians, it starts from the birth of our isa Ali Salam Salem.
So notice how remodel the allong did not set it did not set the Islamic calendar, according to the birthday of Rasulullah sallallahu.
Even though he could have like, like the Christians it,
he could have set it according to the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam,
the beginning of the washing, when he became a prophet or a messenger.
But rather, he said it according to the Hadron, this shows us the importance of this event.
And how it was one of the most, if not the most important events in this era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And here I'm one of the Allahu Han who was also teaching us that we are an owner of action
and not in honor of celebrations.
Like Admiralty tap
the second lesson that we learned
when I saw the law, he said Allahu Allah was
the first time he was exposed to the way
in the cave of Hira.
He came down from the cave, trembling
And so he went straight to his wife, Heidi Donaldson along with her.
And he told her to wrap him in garments.
And we mentioned this story.
When we spoke about the beginning of the revolution coming to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So what did Hadith or the Allahu Heidenhain suggest?
She suggested that
we call her uncle,
her Uncle Warren Carbonell,
who is basically a wise old man who had studied the scriptures.
And so when Walker came,
he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, what did he see? And so after the Prophet SAW sort of explained to him what he saw and what he experienced, what I said to him, this was the angel
who used to come down to Musa alayhis salam. Right away, he recognized that what you experienced is what the previous prophets and the messengers experience. And then what did he say?
What aka he said, I wish I was a young man again. Because by now he's a very, very old man.
He said, I wish I was a young man.
And I wish I could be alive. When you are people drive you out.
When your people force you to leave your hometown.
And so this statement came as a shock to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So we have to keep in mind that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most beloved man among kurush.
He was one of the most respected, minimal Quraysh it came to him as a shock. Why on earth would they want to
kick me out? What could possibly happen?
We have to realize until now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has no idea that he's going to go on to become a prophet, a messenger, and that he's going to be calling his people to Allah and to Islam.
And he has no idea of the enmity and the hostility that he's going to face as a result.
But what can you
and sort of sort of why sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked what aka
our McCreedy home?
Are they really going to exile me? Are they really going to drive me out? So what I said yes.
And he said,
no one who has ever received what you have received,
except that he was treated as an enemy.
Meaning no prophet, no messenger before you.
Who received the worry, the revelation
escaped the enmity and the hostility of his people. And then he said, If I am alive when your time comes, I will give you every help.
And that's what the Nofal had been speaking of the reality of the history of Dalit. Whenever a person declared the truth of Islam, the people rebelled.
And this is what we have covered throughout the years of the Dawa.
And so now, 13 years later,
what what UCLA had predicted,
ended up coming true.
So the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam
was the reality of that prediction. That one Okay, Ben Nofal made.
The third lesson that we learn
is that the struggle between the truth and falsehood is old.
It's nothing new.
Since the first prophet
onwards, until the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and onwards until the Day of Judgment. It's not a new struggle, but it is a continuous struggle. It is only
Allah subhanahu wa Tada says,
a lady you know, redoing the end of a rehab thing in learning your call or a boon Allah
who have been driven out of their homes?
Only because they say that our rump is Allah.
This is the Sunnah of Allah.
But we also know that the end result of this struggle between truth and falsehood
that the victory is for Islam.
As Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised
Kitab Allah who believe in animals,
Allah has written down he has decreed it,
that I and my messengers will definitely be victorious. That is a promise of Allah.
So along the way, there will be trials,
there will be suffering
as we saw in the days in Makkah, with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most beloved of Allah's creation, to him subhanho wa taala.
So if he suffered in this way,
until he had to leave his hometown, until they drove him out,
then how about all those who follow in his footsteps. So in this is a lesson for every caller to Islam every day. In fact, every single Muslim who faces suffering because of their Islam, by either being forced to leave their homeland, because they're no longer able to practice their Islam freely, or being detained, being arrested, being tortured.
You have the best role model in those before you and at your head are the prophets and the masters.
Hijra is not something that was new.
Being forced to leave your homeland.
It is not something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam only did among the prophets and messengers, but rather many prophets and messengers faced
faced something similar.
So you have the example of Ibrahim alayhi salam
and also luta Alayhis Salam, they were related.
And so as Allah subhanahu Uttara says about Ibrahim Ali Salaam
in NIDA, Hebron Isla Combi
so he said I am leaving, so he left his his people and he migrated to
The next lesson that we learn
is the importance of proper planning and using extra caution.
We can notice from the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
the elaborate planning that went into it
rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first he goes and visits Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han, at a time when he usually doesn't show up.
At midday, when the sun is at his peak, no one is old at that time.
And he goes masked.
Then when he entered the house, he asked Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Han to clear his house to maintain secrecy.
He said make sure everyone leaves and then Abu Bakr all the along, told him you want to sue the law. It's only my family members and my family is your family. There is nothing
you know, there's nothing to hide from them. You can trust them.
he had a Harley, probably along with him
to take his place in his bed, fourth, the camels and you know everything was prepared and ready.
Fifth, they left under the cover of darkness. Six, they hired a guide.
and we mentioned this last week,
the route that they took to exit Mecca, although Medina is to the north, they did not exit from the North. Rather they exited from the south. And so this was to deceive
to deceive the machinery cool. And so the machinery who would have been looking in the north
so they had itself
ate, they hid in the cave for three days and three nights.
So the purpose of that was to make sure that
the high alert among Quraysh
comes down. And so once they realize after three days that of searching that they have not been able to find him. They assumed that he has already left.
we had Abdullah, the son of Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Han, who would act as the spy for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so he would go and gather information,
intelligence from what he was hearing, among the comfort of coloration during the daytime, and then at nighttime, he would return to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and give them that information.
how to sort of why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had someone to bring him food.
So we mentioned the servant of Abu Bakr and the ribbon for Hara
would bring them food.
These are only some of the plantings
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, executed,
among many other things, as we saw,
and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to an extreme
to this extreme extent, to ensure that, you know, his journey to Medina would be safe, even though he knew
that he was the messenger of Allah. And, you know, the Promise of Allah is that Allah will protect him.
After all, you know, he is,
he is the messenger of Allah. But he did all of this.
He did all of this, to teach us
to teach us because he is a role model. And so he did this to teach us that as Muslims, we have to do our best. And we have to take the means and we must not ignore them.
And then after putting in all the effort, and doing all the planning,
then we say let us now put our trust in Allah.
Not that we ignore the means, and we say Allah will take care of it.
we then later on see this.
When Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han was in the cave, and he started to panic, when he saw some of the machinery cool, had arrived.
And he became extremely worried.
And so at that point, what did the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam say to him?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at this point, after having exhausted all the means,
you know, doing everything that he could in his ability to protect himself. Now he said, What do you think, oh Abu Bakr,
if we are to but the third witness is Allah.
in this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed us how to balance between
taking the means and then putting our trust in Allah subhanahu what
the fifth lesson that we learned
was the status of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu wa
Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose
among all of his companions.
He chose Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Han.
Even though there were
among the Sahaba those who could have been
a stronger protection for the Prophet sallallahu it was
those who were
you know, physically more stronger. You know, who could have acted as bodyguards were the prophets of Allah who had who sort of like armor, even a kebab and others, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose out of everyone he could have chose. He chose Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han. And so this shows us that he was the best companion of Rasulullah sallallahu.
He was the one that Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved the most
And it also shows
the love that he had for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam his love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam was not mere lip service
and so that is why he cried
out of joy when he found out that he would have that honor
and that privilege of being the prophets companion for the Hijra.
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han was a wise man who Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could trust. And so he had certain characteristics that qualified him
to be the prophets companion on history.
And so he was wise.
he had connections
among all the various tribes, so he used to travel a lot.
in his travels, he would meet the various Bedouin tribes and this became an asset for him solar wind sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But notice here how
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han was willing to sacrifice his life for the life of rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han was the only one with him.
And the danger was real.
It's only him and also the ye sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His life was on the line.
And that's why aroma. Rubino called Bob Radi Allahu Han later on when he became a believer.
He heard that some people had gathered to discuss who was better
Abu Bakar or Omar.
when he heard this, he went to them.
And he said to them, that one day in the life of Abu Bakr is better than the entire family of Omar.
And then, he narrated the story of the Hijra.
After seeing this, he narrated the story of the hedgehog. And then he said after that one day of the hijra, is not only better than the life of armor, but better than the life of the entire family of Rama.
And so this event shows us
that the Sahaba had have the highest status of who of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu
this was not recognized only by Romo, Viola one but many of the leading
notable companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It wasn't by chance that when they gather gathered after the death of the process, and it wasn't by chance that they all agreed that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han should be their leader.
So all of this shows us the high status of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ahad among the companions
whoever ridicules Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han,
or insults him
along with any of the other companions like or model the Allahu Ahad
then it shows you their deviation and their misguidance
have hatred for someone who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had love for
the next lesson that we learned again from Abu Bakr Radi Allahu
Why did Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah start to cry out of joy.
When he got permission to make Hedra with Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And so, we mentioned in the story, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes
and visits a worker.
And he tells him I have now been given permission to make Hydra. And so Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah was waiting for this moment, but he had no idea that he would be allowed to leave with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam so he asked the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, May I accompany you? Do I have permission to go
You. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, when he heard this, he cried out of joy.
As I showed on the long run, the daughter of Abu Bakr mureeds she says, I have never seen anyone cry so much out of joy. Then, on that day when Abu Bakr robiola were hunted, cried out of joy. Now
this was not an entertaining journey.
Abu Bakar on the alarm, I knew very well that he was risking his life by being the companion of Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam on the hijra,
so how come he is crying out of joy, when he knows that he is putting his life on the line?
And so this shows you
the level of the sacrifice that Abu Bakr, Al Viola Rohan was willing
to go to.
And so, it shows you that he was so happy
to sacrifice for Rasul Allah, He said along with that he was, why was he so happy? Because
he wanted to have that honor
of sacrificing his life for the life of Rasulullah sallallahu.
As we mentioned last week,
when the Prophet SAW Selim saw
enthusiastic and keen Abu Bakr was, on the journey, when he saw how, how much effort he put into protecting the prophets of Salaam, sometimes walking in front of him, sometimes walking behind him, the Prophet SAW, Selim asked him, Why do you do this? Why are you doing this Abu Bakr and so Abu Bakr said,
because sometimes I think you can be ambushed from in front so I walk in front of you, sometimes I think, we can be pursued from behind so I walked behind you. He was ready to give his life for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he didn't care about his own life. Because the life of Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more valuable to him.
And so his heart was not trembling.
When he found out that he was going to accompany the Prophet SAW Salem on this journey, he was not afraid.
Instead, he was crying out of joy, knowing
that he could be killed, but it shows you the love that he had for sort of walking Sallalahu it was.
The next lesson that we learn
is the importance of being financially independent.
And this is especially for
those who follow in the footsteps of the prophets and the messengers.
who take on the flag. They are the flag bearers of the prophets and the messengers, the callers to Islam, the dou x and the scholars of Islam.
When it was all Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Abu Bakr that he had been given permission
for the hijra, and Abu Bakr was ready to join him. Abu Bakr told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, here are two camels for the Hijra
Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied that he will take the camel, but he will pay for it.
Even though this was his best friend,
he is offering him a gift.
But here are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was teaching us an important lesson that as the leader
as someone in the position and the position of authority,
you have to be financially independent. And so when a scholar is on the government payroll,
there is a conflict of interest. When that scholar is giving a fatwa on any issue that relates to the government, when the scholar is dependent on the government, then automatically, he will be hesitant to do anything that goes against
the will of the government. Even if that means issuing a fatwa that is false, and not speaking the truth. And so to prevent this evil,
there should be financial independence of such Islamic faders so this is what we learned from
the Prophet sallallahu Haley you
The next lesson that we learn
is the role of women.
In the story of the Hijra of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.
In the family of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han.
And they were a shuttle de la Blanca. And a SMAP are the Allahu Allah
with regards to the eye shadow the Allahu anha. She was very young. But
we find that she is the one who narrated
the story of the Hijra.
you open sahih al Bukhari, or sahih, Muslim
and you go to the story that we mentioned last week, the story of the hijra,
you find that the narrator narrating the hadith is none other than I shot all the Allahu Ahad
because there was no one else
you know, all the other Muslims had already left to enmity. Also,
no one knew that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to leave the only ones who knew were the family of Abu Bakr and Ali Rhodiola. Why, besides that no one else knew. So who's narrating the story to us, none other than I shall not be alone. And so the entire story was preserved by her, showing us the role of women in seeking knowledge and conveying it. And so it is not only for men, and highlight shadow the Allahu Heidenhain. You don't shows us not only through this one narration but she is one of those companions, who narrated many a hadith
as well as map or the Allahu anha.
First of all,
she was given the title of that new thought
which means the one who has to scarves
she was given this title by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because
she tore her scarf into two parts
in order to deliver food and water to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and her father Abu Bakr, when they were indicate, we mentioned last week that she would prepare food and deliver it. And this is how she did.
when they found out that was sort of walking SallAllahu wasallam had escaped, a group of them went to the house of Abu Bakr
and among them was Abu Jehan. And they knocked on the door,
and Esma opened the door, and Abuja asked her, where her father was where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, so she said she did not know. In response, abou Johanna slapped her hard on the face. And so
she did not cave into the pressure.
She remained patient
and did not expose
the secret and the whereabouts of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and so she sacrificed torture.
Another thing to notice here is that she also lied.
But it is permissible to lie
for the protection of a Muslim
and especially Rasul Allah, He said, Allah
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set out for El Medina, accompanied by the father of eSmart, Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah.
Abu Bakr took all that he had of his wealth with him.
And he did not leave anything behind for his family.
And so the father of Abu Bakr,
so the grandfather of Esma
he was a blind man.
So he came in
and he said to us, man,
I see that my son has caused you to sufferings
First, he left, he left you behind.
And secondly, he has not left
anything behind for you of wealth
of provision of food.
And so a smart Radulov behind her was very creative.
She went and she filled a sack with stones.
And she brought them to Abu Kochava and put it in his hands. And she said, No, he did leave behind something.
Now, Abu Kochava is blind, he doesn't know what's in the sack.
But he realized that it's something that Abu Bakr has left behind. And so
this was to reassure the old man
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han does care about us. And he has left behind something.
Again, although it may be a lie, this is what we can refer to as being toda where you speak something which is true.
it appears to be a lie, but it is not. And so, this is something that Abu Bakr had in his house.
And so it's true that he did leave behind something.
But the lesson that we learned from this is that Abu Bakr radi, Allahu Ahad did leave behind something greater than material wealth.
And that we see from the behavior of a smell Rhodiola ohana.
He left behind
a daughter who was intelligent, and we had EMA.
And not one who would complete have difficult times that we don't have anything.
But no, he left behind a family of EMA
which is far greater than any material wealth.
The point here is nonetheless, that we can see the role of women
in the story of the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu.
The next lesson that we learn is that anything can be the soldier of Allah.
What was it that stopped the kuffar of Quraysh from entering the cave? We mentioned last week that it was the web of a spider.
And what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say at Bell, the web of a spider in the Quran
we're in Oh, Honolulu T lobby to run to boot
that the most weakest of homes is the home of the spider.
With one finger you could tear down the whole web.
Right? And so look at how this feeble weak
was the soldier of Allah that stopped the kuffaar from capturing Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so what this shows us is
that Allah subhanho wa Taala can choose sometimes the weakest of his creations to be his soldiers.
When I learned modulo, the Rebekah Illa, who, and none knows the soldiers of your Lord except me.
Sometimes we think that we need
the latest weapons
all the advanced artillery and weapons in order to defeat our enemy.
there are weapons and soldiers of Allah, that Allah sins when he wills for whomever He wills.
we have seen this throughout throughout history
the prophets and the messengers of Allah
and so it was
the source of life, water the source of life. That was the cause behind the destruction of the people of New helliya Silla.
It was also the source of life water. That was the soldier of Allah that drowned Farah hang
it was also
that were the soldiers of Allah that defeated the army of the earth.
So this story of the web of the spider that we mentioned last week.
It is an agreeable narration.
And so it is has an it is
a sound narration it's not to the level of being authentic. So, hey, but it is acceptable
the mention of pigeons, being there at the entrance of the cave with
you know, to prevent Qureshi from entering the cave, then that is not authentic. The as for the web, this is, you know, acceptable.
The next lesson that we learn
is the permissibility of seeking aid from the kuffar.
So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had hired a mushrik to be their guide all the way to Medina.
And say that, and so they agreed
to meet at the cave, and then head off from there.
And this was at a time when Quraysh were on high alert,
disclosing their location to a mechanic at such, you know, such a dangerous time and then having him to come and accompany them all the way to Medina, was risky.
However, this shows us that if there is a non Muslim
who has a certain skill that we can benefit from,
then we can use their assistance as long as we trust them.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam trusted this man
and so that's why he hired him
even though he was a mechanic.
And this is why, even when Buhari
he entitled The chapter in which he mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hiring this Mushrik he entitled The chapter Babel is Jarmusch Lee keener and Dr. Rura
Oh, EDA, la mujer etheral Islam. He entitled The chapter, hiring Moshe Kuhn in cases of necessity or if Muslims are not available,
the next lesson that we learn
the prophets time in Mecca
as a prophet and a messenger,
the mutually cool still recognized, his trustworthy, his trustworthiness and his honesty.
We mentioned previously they recognize this before he became a prophet and the messenger.
a unanimous consensus agreement of everyone that he was the most trustworthy person among us.
But even after he became a prophet and a messenger, imagine, when they were disbelieving in him. They were calling him a madman,
a sorcerer, a magician, a poet.
Many of them would still
go to him
and entrust him with some of their belongings with some of their possessions because they didn't know anyone else more trustworthy than him.
So this shows us that their Kufa was not based on them, doubting whether a suit of Lysol Salman was honest or not. But rather, it was based on their arrogance in accepting the truth. Anyways, what is my point of mentioning this? When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was leaving Mecca?
He instructed it had been abused by the prophet Allah who has to take care of those belongings and possessions
and return them to their owners.
Holly robiola who stayed behind and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him this job.
Notice here how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not take advantage of the enmity between him and the machete Kuhn to justify not returning
or possessions. He could have done that he could have said I'm gonna take all of this and go with me to take them with me to Medina.
But instead he left him behind. And he instructed Holly radula, who has to contact these people and return to them their belongings, having the kind of personality, that sort of why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had, he would never stoop so low to doing such a thing.
Also, he did not forget about this responsibility.
You know, imagine
what he was going through during those days.
He is mentally preoccupied with his life under threat, and he's prepared for this journey. But he still makes it a point
to entrust someone with these belongings that belonged to the moose raccoon of maca.
The next lesson that we learned is
that the enemies of Islam
will spend millions and billions
in fighting Islam
and warding people away from Islam.
However, all of their spending will go to waste.
And so they put a bounty on the head of Rasulullah sallallahu ala USL
100 camels for whoever can bring him dead or alive.
And so Soraka was one of those who wanted the prize. But as we mentioned last week,
he ended up coming back empty handed.
He was prevented from coming near the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah protected him. And so
after that, he returns to Metka.
telling others don't waste your time. Don't bother.
You can't capture him.
So we'll look at how their wealth went to waste. The loss of Hannah hood data says about the kuffaar and how they spend
or wasn't heard of who a Dalit says in the livina cover. You will feel cooler and while Lee also do a hand sebelah the disbelievers they spend of their wealth to hinder others from the Path of Allah photography hula. So meta Kuhn, rally him Hazara, some overboard. And so they will continue to spend until regret.
And then they will be defeated.
will let you know Cafaro Elijah Hannah we are Sharon. And then they will be driven to the hellfire.
And this is something that we'll see throughout the history of Islam. until this very day, the kuffaar they spend in the billions in the trillions. But all of their money goes to waste.
And so more people end up embracing Islam, then
who they tried to prevent.
The next lesson that we learned is the proof of a Naboo the proof of prophethood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so there were many miracles that took place on this journey that we mentioned last week.
All of these miracles show us that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being aided by a power from outside of this world.
And so yes,
he took the means to protect himself. He took many means.
And one can say that he escaped because he took those means.
And so he left Mecca, you know, in secrecy, he hid in the cave. He, you know, left from the south instead of from the North. He took a different route than the usual route to to Medina. And anyone who wants to escape from his enemy can do that. However,
besides that, there were many incidents that were purely miraculous in preventing him from being captured, and other miracles as well. And so
how he left from his home
while the men were waiting to attack him
the spider's web that we mentioned
Soraka, failing to capture him.
When he approached Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he found
His horse would sink into the sand. He couldn't come closer, even though he had his fear and his sword.
And then the other miracles were the goats. And so he went to
my bed. And he asked her for milk. And she said that her goat is dry. And he asked if he could milk it. And after he milked it, milk came pouring out gushing forth, also with the other shepherd that he met the same incident. And so all of these were miracles that took place on this journey of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all of which can be used as evidence to prove that he was indeed the Messenger of Allah.
The final lesson that we learned
a lot of what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did during the journey was done in secrecy.
He did this,
to preserve to protect himself, and also to protect Islam and the Muslims.
But a balance needs to be struck between secrecy and giving down.
And so Tao by nature is a public outward thing.
So how do you keep a balance between giving data openly
and protecting your organization and the people?
It's an individual we find examples of both.
So regarding secrecy,
no one knew of the departure of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam except for Abu Bakr
and his family and the HUD hero, the Allahu Ahad. These were the only people who knew about the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu. He was.
Also when Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakr were traveling, and they would need some people to help.
Abu Bakr was a known man.
While Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not known outside of Macau.
NS idiomatic. He says that Abu Bakr was a no man. So people would come to me him.
And then they will ask Abu Bakr, who is this man who is with you?
So a worker would reply, this man is a guide, he has shown me the path.
Now what people would think that is that he is a guide,
who is showing him the way through the desert. But Abu Bakr here wanted to
keep the identity of Rasulullah saw. So let me secret. So what he meant was that he is a guide guiding me to Allah. So again, another example of Tolia where he wasn't lying.
But he spoke the truth.
But now when it comes to giving Dawa, the identity needs to be revealed.
And so there are examples in the Hijra of how certain people accepted Islam,
after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him who he was.
And so we mentioned these examples last week,
And so after he saw what the Prophet SAW Selim did with the goat, he asked, Who on earth are you? And so the Prophet SAW Selim said, Can you keep a secret? He said, Yes. And so he said, I am the messenger of Allah, and then he accepted Islam.
Also, the other example
that we didn't mention last week,
was that of a famous companion, Buddha Islam. So he also met the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, on the hijra,
and the process or introduced himself as the last and final messenger.
And he gave him Dawa and bourree that accepted Islam. Buddha went on to join wetsuit, Allah, he's Allahu alayhi wa sallam,
and he fought in 16 Out of the 19 battles.
And the third example, Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came across two thieves on this journey.
And he also gave them down.
And they too became Mr. Watt as well. Why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked them what their names were. They said we are L mu Han n, which means the two Dishonored ones. Basically, the people said, you too are dishonored.
So rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, no, you too are ill MCRA man. You too are the honored ones. The point here is that
that what we learned here is that
there needs to be a balance between
keeping things secret
and hiding the identity of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam on the one hand and on the other hand, continuously giving dower
and so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not give up on any opportunity that he found
in giving Dawa. So he would only expose his identity when he thought that these people would be responsive to the data, otherwise, exposing his identity would pose it would pose a security threat.
And so what we find is
that whenever there was an opportunity to give Dawa, he would give down.
And we find the same with the previous prophets use of it his salaam, even when he was in the difficult situation that he was in, in the prison.
And these people came to him
the two prisoners who were with him, and they said, We have dreams, can you interpret our dreams for us?
Before interpreting them, he started to give them the one
he gave them down to to heat and
he told them about how Shinnick does not make sense as a one entrance ins in surah. Us.
So these are some of the many lessons that we can learn from this episode. In this era of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. With that we come to the end of
the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam next week. We will move on to
the arrival of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companion Abu Bakr. Their arrival in El Medina Subhanak Allah no Byham Deke, Allah
