My dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

00:00:11--> 00:00:28

The series we we called it know your messengers like know your loads, Chateau La ilaha illa Allah that's know your load a shadow unknown Mohammedan Rasul Allah, that is know your messengers.

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

And we introduced

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

the subject last lecture.

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

And we actually talked about the events leading to the birth of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam.

00:00:45--> 00:00:51

And we mentioned that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was born in a

00:00:52--> 00:00:56

cold iron will feel the eve of the elephant.

00:00:58--> 00:01:11

And in this regard, Allah Subhana, Allah revealed, verse, a chapter a whole chapter called will feel the elephant lm thora ke Fila buka, the US harville field

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

and we spoke about his family, his father, his lineage and so forth.

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

The subject of the birthday of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

is a conflict. Normally every year that we have,

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

we have Muslims who initiate

00:01:35--> 00:01:42

the defend the celebration of the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

and we have

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

others who say, No, you cannot do that. It is not as soon

00:01:53--> 00:02:01

where is the truth? Because it's normally you know, a subject of debate.

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

First of all,

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

we really don't know when the prophets Allah Salam was born.

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

We don't

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

a certain day we don't

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

we know that he was born on our Monday

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

most probably in the month of Robbie Allah but no confirmation yet. There are others who said Ramadan.

00:02:30--> 00:02:37

But he was born on a Monday because we have an authentic hadith had it IBF cartera de la de la one.

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

Or Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked, or Abu Qatada asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on fasting Monday.

00:02:48--> 00:02:53

Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said that this is a good day on which I was born.

00:02:54--> 00:03:09

So we know that sallallahu wasallam was born on a Monday, but that will fulfill RBL that they come up with. We don't know. As a matter of fact, here's the interesting piece. As a matter of fact, we have confirmed

00:03:10--> 00:03:27

or other HTML is not meaning consensus of the historian of the experts of Hadith of the people who compiled the biography of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that Rasulullah died, own that wealth of

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

his death was own that wealth of robiola.

00:03:35--> 00:03:36


00:03:37--> 00:03:44

by the way, in Egypt, when you know we started telling them that that listen, we don't know

00:03:45--> 00:03:53

which day he was born, Jani and Ravi Allah Well, they said, You know what, we're gonna celebrate the whole month then

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

talking about the celebration of one day.

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

So they said we're gonna celebrate day, the whole month, just to make sure that we're gonna get this day.

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

Second year or Secondly, we have never come across

00:04:14--> 00:04:24

an offer an offer, meaning a hadith or a piece of information. That tells me that Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam celebrated his birthday

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

nor his companions

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

at UT tell me you bring man you bring a bring an evidence.

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

That celebration actually was initiated in the oma

00:04:42--> 00:04:48

the Some say the fifth century. Some say the fourth century

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

at the hands of

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

a force called Abdullah Al obedia. Or a Safa. We

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

Oral Fatima I like the name Fatima because it's the Fatima, the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu. Yes. And

00:05:07--> 00:05:11

that's why we like to use Safa via oral, D.

00:05:12--> 00:05:31

Those are a sect in Islam called Shia Islam. They actually at one stage like they are very ambitious now to take over the Muslim world again, right now as we speak, they actually succeeded in the past, and they actually took all over the Muslim world, including Egypt. And that's where they initiated that celebration.

00:05:33--> 00:05:47

And the oma followed their food steps from there. So that's how the whole thing was initiated. For you, we always come across that debate, you know, let's be you know, let's be you know,

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

when you see something wrong,

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

being able to address it with kindness.

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

With evidence, helping the people understand

00:06:04--> 00:06:10

is far better than yelling and shouting and making a scene is not going to get you any place is not.

00:06:12--> 00:06:39

When you see something happening, be intellectual, help people understand. They don't understand where you coming from. But help people understand where you coming from. make them understand the question that always comes in regarding this subject, come on. What's wrong with me showing my love and affection and respect for Rasulullah? sallallahu? So that's a good point.

00:06:40--> 00:06:50

I mean, that's a good argument. I'm not saying I would point but the good work argument. We come and say, Yeah, oh, here, my little brother, I love your life for the sake of Allah.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

But I care about you.

00:06:54--> 00:07:02

There is a rule in Islam that says what, and memorize that rule because it's going to help you a lot deal with a lot of situations.

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

And a slew fill a bad t l have allegedly

00:07:12--> 00:07:21

won a slew Philae t le baja to a lab in Delhi. By default,

00:07:22--> 00:07:31

once it comes to habits and customs, you can do it. I'm not gonna stop you habits, customs, things that you used to do.

00:07:32--> 00:07:37

So I come and I tell you don't do this, my brother mine don't do it.

00:07:38--> 00:07:43

You asked me Show me evidence that I cannot do it. So I'm supposed to do what

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

should the evidence that

00:07:47--> 00:07:54

you see once it comes to acts of worship, like celebrating the knowledge, it's the other way around?

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

You can initiate it.

00:07:58--> 00:08:08

And then what I'm asking you don't do it. Who is supposed to provide the delille here the evidence for doing it? Who you that do or not me?

00:08:09--> 00:08:28

So the door is supposed to to provide the evidence not the one who is rebuking or asking him not to do it. Normally, that battle comes around the amount of robiola well i think it's coming sooner with suffer now. And then after suffer What

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

are available right? So it's in a month you're going to hear that story back and forth. So at least you abbreviate inshallah

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

it was the habit and the tradition

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

of the Arabs

00:08:44--> 00:08:49

that when there is a child born or at least the people in Mecca

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

they would send him far away to the desert as a baby

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

you called to be breastfed

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

why especially in price,

00:09:06--> 00:09:13

you see Mecca is more of an international location please, a lot of people come from

00:09:15--> 00:09:22

different parts. And when you come when people come with different cultures different

00:09:23--> 00:09:39

they end up what balut in your own language, your own culture, your own characters. Like right now if you go to Cairo, for example, and you you know hamdulillah over here if you if you do something to me, I tell you what, jazak Allahu Allah

00:09:41--> 00:09:47

that's the Islamic culture right? You know if you go to okay when you do something to somebody, mercy

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

that's if you are in the French Quarter.

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

But if you go into the Italian quarter Gracia

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

and then when you go to the English quarter

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


00:10:02--> 00:10:07

and these things becomes what it actually takes over your own language.

00:10:08--> 00:10:11

The child is brought up

00:10:12--> 00:10:22

you know with that culture, that is why they used to send their children far away to the desert. For what? For the language?

00:10:24--> 00:10:41

I tell you something, one of the first things that non Muslims did to the Muslim world is taking them away from the Arabic language. Do you think that people in Egypt speak Arabic? You guys think that we speak Arabic in Egypt? We don't speak Arabic.

00:10:42--> 00:10:52

We speak a version of Arabic called what? With all due respect to the Moroccan I'm sure we have some Moroccan here somewhere. Have you ever heard the Moro conversion of Arabic

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

or the Algerian?

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

It's totally different.

00:10:59--> 00:11:06

Why what Look, when France occupied Algeria, what did they do to the Algerians

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

throughout the education, the Arabic language Why? Because Corolla is RB in Angela, who

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

for you to connect to that you must have what

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

the language

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

shall it was something very funny. Well, it's very funny

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

will lie sometimes, I don't understand certain things in the Quran in Arabic, I have to go into the English to be able to grasp the depth of it.

00:11:39--> 00:11:57

Just by the because the one who translated or interpreted not translated, there is no such thing as interpreting the meanings of the Quran. He studied the Arabic language in depth more than me, so he was able to reduce the English word which I'm used to

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

imagine this, but meanwhile, I'm

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

supposed to be an Arab, you know, born and taught.

00:12:07--> 00:12:22

These children were sent to the desert in order to be taught the Arabic language Not only this, in order also to learn what

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

being tough look at our kids.

00:12:28--> 00:12:36

Oh, come baby, come Habibi come. You don't do that with the children. You gotta bring them the we work.

00:12:37--> 00:12:48

rough life. See, spider law. I want to tell you, if we happen to lose what we have, can we allow for it? As soon as diminish?

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

I can tell you right now I can live in the street, I can do it.

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

I can live in a little tent. I can handle it. But look at the kids who are born here.

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

Just take away the iPhone.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

And you will see

00:13:08--> 00:13:08

it's held for them.

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

For these children.

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

In the quraishi environment, were sent out these in order to learn the Arabic language in order to be brought up in the form, bear the desert environment that makes them tough and actually teaches them also up the characters. They're being generous, being courageous, being someone who's sharp once it comes to dealing with tough situations, it teach them all these things. I want to tell you something regarding the Arabic language.

00:13:50--> 00:14:10

So panela when Allah Subhana Allah addressed the Arabs in the Quran, the Arabs who are who are fighting rusada the message and the messenger Rasul Allah, Allah Allah, Allah stillington wa laqad and zelner la Poom kita urban, c d.

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

f Allah Taku.

00:14:14--> 00:14:23

We have revealed to you a book in this book, you are ups your remembrance will stay for eternity.

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

As long as this book stays

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

by Look,

00:14:29--> 00:14:37

look at any Muslim who accepts Islam in America. What is the first thing that he has ambitious about ambition about? What?

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

The first thing Oh, no, no, no, no,

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

no, no, no.

00:14:44--> 00:14:51

I read this. I don't know whether it is correct or wrong. Or a story that people made up but it makes a lot of sense.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

And the Russia you know, the nuclear you know the What do you call this the trash? What do you call the new

00:15:00--> 00:15:00


00:15:01--> 00:15:09

waste the nuclear waste, they are both in containers and they go and bury them far away in the desert.

00:15:10--> 00:15:47

And they basically they said for people to at one stage to come and will in the desert it will be maybe 1000 2000 years, because it's far away. But yet we still want to write warnings on these containers. So that if the people go and dig to build the award that these are nuclear waste that can walk harm them. So they debated deliberated, what language should we use to write these warnings on these containers? This what language they chose?

00:15:49--> 00:15:55

They said, that's the only language that has a chance for sure to survive

00:15:57--> 00:16:13

that long of a time for local Arabic, the Arabic language what is a key to understand what the Quran because I want to tell you something, you have a big difference between you and the previous Oman, the previous nations.

00:16:14--> 00:16:21

The original copy of the pie of the Bible of the Old Testament, the New Testament is not there.

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

Is not there it doesn't exist. It's a copy.

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

They copy it from a copy

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

but with the Quran

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

it's the full shadow in the chest. What is so cool.

00:16:40--> 00:16:40


00:16:42--> 00:16:49

So when someone like me sits in front of you and he explains things that are not correct. All you have to do is what

00:16:50--> 00:17:06

but what tool do you need? army Comanche What? How do you translate that? How did you understand that that verse that? That is why are Rasool sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent the story behind this as well when the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.

00:17:07--> 00:17:24

A lot of women who are into breastfeeding and how it happens, no woman would deliver a baby, she will have milk in her breast. Consequently, she will come to the city or a town life price. And she will present herself to the

00:17:25--> 00:18:19

parents of children who are new born. Would you like to send your child with me? So when the Rasul Salallahu alaihe, Salam was born, a delegation from a place called how as in and Subhanallah, that particular tribe, one of the qualities is the Arabic language called Dr. Benny buck, the children of Bach, in a place called houses in in the Arabia, they excelled in the Arabic language, and a woman by the name of Halima Halima her title, what is Saudi and her name is Halima been to buck? A blusa min. Housing. That is why she called she is called Holly Masada. So Paula, her and her husband His name is ill Harris, ignore Abdullah Rosa. That is his name.

00:18:20--> 00:18:40

When they were coming with the delegation, they were riding a female donkey called attend. Omar the female called up attend and was very sick. They couldn't even catch up with the delegation. And they had a camel.

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

Female she camel, I guess they call it.

00:18:46--> 00:18:53

And so halala didn't have hardly milk. And they had their child with them and they were crying.

00:18:54--> 00:19:05

So when they arrived, they arrived late. So all the women grabbed what children have the will see people in place. The only one was left is

00:19:07--> 00:19:21

the son an orphan because his father died already. His father died, peeler cobla mabuti he before he was born, six months when he was in the womb of his mother sallallahu wasallam.

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

He's the only one left.

00:19:25--> 00:19:36

So they didn't want I mean, because you need to take a child who belongs to a rich, wealthy man so they can pay you because you need to make money of this. So they left

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

but then harassment said why don't we just go get that orphan at least we come back with something.

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

Sure, well Baraka when

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

as soon as they got him salaria send them as a baby.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

That female donkey attended school was running like a horse.

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

They actually ended up in front of the delegation.

00:20:08--> 00:20:20

And Subhana Allah as soon as he started breastfeeding him. Her own child did not have enough milk. And he was crying all the time because the camel, the female camel,

00:20:21--> 00:20:28

also did not have enough milk. As soon as she breastfed the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam she had enough for both of them.

00:20:30--> 00:20:38

And later on her husband went to milk the female camel. So panela was filled with milk. Baraka

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

Baraka, Allah subhana wa Taala Baraka comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. De took him

00:20:46--> 00:20:53

he's been there for two years with them because a river breastfeeding echo is what

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

and it's really a pity that

00:21:00--> 00:21:12

we understand now the philosophy if we may use the word here in that context, behind breastfeeding in the desert. Lots of harmala Jani we ended up with with with women

00:21:13--> 00:21:21

and our culture now mothers Yani they refrain from breastfeeding their own children meanwhile they are able to

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

why because she's afraid what she's gonna lose what

00:21:26--> 00:21:30

her figure of whatever her beauty

00:21:32--> 00:21:36

but she doesn't know that this is the natural milk the child

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

you know,

00:21:40--> 00:21:51

Lost Planet Allah designed for that artificial milk. I'm sure there will be some deficit someplace some shortage and calcium and dietary dietary

00:21:52--> 00:22:10

shortages for the ideal way in order to give your child the healthy is the breastfeeding their natural breastfeeding. And this is normally to eafs while while era to be not simple, and while while

00:22:11--> 00:22:32

you're there, I will add the hoonah how Laney Cammy Laney, the mothers are to breastfeed their babies for two years. So para la the Baraka just filled the house of ill Harris and his wife, Halima.

00:22:33--> 00:22:47

After the two years. Halima went to Amina the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not to bring him back. Rather to beg her, please, can he stay longer with me?

00:22:49--> 00:23:22

Can I keep him for longer? She actually took him back for two more years. So he ended up sallallahu wasallam the first four years of his life, spending them with Halle Masada, learning that Arabic language, learning it, knowing it, also learning the tough, rough life of a desert. But towards the end of those four years, something very interesting happened.

00:23:23--> 00:23:35

By all the sudden while he was a la jolla salon playing with the children jabril alehissalaam came in a form of a man another account that say gee brina our angels

00:23:37--> 00:24:13

they took him they open his chest and they took out a piece of flesh from the and they sealed his chest again, they had a golden kind of container. After the and there is a reference a lot of the schoolers have seen they refer to surety shop, they said lm nasura lacquer, sub drukke and ns above the Allaah. One used to say I used to see the ceiling of his chest

00:24:14--> 00:24:46

winner. So as we know that he served the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for multiple years for multiple years. And he said that I used to see that ceiling of his chest the trace of it. Immediately when Halima saw this happening. She thought that this is very dangerous, very risky, she is responsible. She immediately decided to bring the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back to his mother in Mecca. So she brought him back to Mecca. And she said to his mother,

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

what happened?

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

So that was around

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

the full field of the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Amina Ravi, Allah Juana, could we can we say that from the lavon? I'm testing you and testing your ground. Amina the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam

00:25:12--> 00:25:17

decided that she wanted to go and visit her family

00:25:18--> 00:25:19


00:25:20--> 00:25:24

originally from Medina, the suburbs of Medina.

00:25:26--> 00:25:36

She wanted to take the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and go and visit her family for him Salallahu alaihe salam to see his uncle's maternal uncles

00:25:37--> 00:25:52

up Abdulmutallab. The grandfather of the prophets, Allah Salam loved him dearly. And he refused for both of them to go alone. And he said that I will accompany you.

00:25:53--> 00:26:01

So she went and visited her family and in their way back, so Pinilla, she died.

00:26:03--> 00:26:11

And she was actually buried in a place between Mecca and Medina.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13


00:26:15--> 00:26:18

we come to the question which I cannot resist.

00:26:19--> 00:26:28

There is a quite of a debate between the schoolers regarding the religion

00:26:29--> 00:26:32

of their parents of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:34--> 00:26:44

We have to evidence from the sooner which do establish that both of them died as disbelievers.

00:26:47--> 00:26:53

One of them when Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam was asked by one of the companions

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

in Abbey

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

Abbey, what is my father

00:27:00--> 00:27:08

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, Abby was a bukovina My Father and your Father are in hell.

00:27:11--> 00:27:23

The other one later on, we know that Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after he grown up at one stage, he passed by the place where his mother is buried.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

Here requested to visit her grave.

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I was given the permission.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

Then I was

00:27:37--> 00:27:43

asking or I asked to ask Allah to forgive her. And I was not given the permission.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47


00:27:49--> 00:27:55

you know when people die, brothers and sisters in Islam we leave this to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:27:56--> 00:28:05

This is a subject that we should not make it a subject of discussion. Or a subject we we spend a lot of time on.

00:28:06--> 00:28:13

Because obviously from those two situations are Sol Sol Sol and did not want to talk about it.

00:28:16--> 00:28:42

At the end of the day, they are with Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will do, what they deserve, what they are entitled to. And like we said, right before our talk, Allah right before the show, that Allah Subhana Allah is just inferior. He will not room anybody. In any rate, Halima I'm sorry, Amina was

00:28:44--> 00:29:00

buried in a place called dilla wa Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned with his grandfather, Abdulmutallab. He took a very good care of him. The only grandson, Abdulmutallab, he was a leader.

00:29:01--> 00:29:24

When he was sitting in the hedges Matt hedges made became like the place where the Arabs the leaders would meet and discuss matters. He was the only grandchild of Abdulmutallab who would sit on his lap just to show, you know, his love and affection for him.

00:29:25--> 00:29:31

Abdulmutallab died when the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was six years old.

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

The lifestyle of our school had.

00:29:37--> 00:29:54

That's, you know, that is why he's an OSHA. He's an example for anybody. You're an orphan. He has an example. You have a father who passed away as a non Muslim. He is an example. You have as a relative who passed away as a Muslim obatala He's an example.

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

He is homeless. He is an example. Poor he is innocent.

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

Humble leader, he is an example. Rich he is an example. Everybody can feel rasulillah he was

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

in all aspects.

00:30:15--> 00:30:24

When Abdul muttalib passed away, he also advised that his son avatar

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

to take care of him he had more than a

00:30:28--> 00:30:41

child more than one year. But he briefings about it even though our booth Holly was one of the poorest, if this is proper English or the most poor, whatever it is.

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

The poorest was one of the poorest

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

of the of his children.

00:30:49--> 00:31:15

Again, yeah, it was Subhana Allah, winner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam joined his family. The Baraka was dead in his house. He was actually his own children would actually leave the table or the meal with you know, empty stomach. The Baraka was the was the Rasul salatu salam tourists at this early age

00:31:17--> 00:31:26

that he actually started working, helping, you know what he did? One of his first profession is to shepherd

00:31:29--> 00:31:38

or if he had a car, and regarding this, he said, Ma'am, in Benin, illawarra, Allah honam

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

every prophet did shepherding or did shepherd.

00:31:47--> 00:31:47


00:31:48--> 00:31:49

Why shepherding?

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

Subhanallah because normally the Prophet

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

would turn to be a leader of a nation

00:32:04--> 00:32:07

and something about shepherds in very interesting

00:32:09--> 00:32:15

and I was actually blessed with that. I Shepherd the two but I'm not. I'm not saying that because

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

but I did shepherd and I want to tell you something.

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding sheep and goats,

00:32:28--> 00:32:33

and loose Sakina T will work on aluminum.

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

will, will keep very well hajela a little highly well even

00:32:43--> 00:32:47

the people who have humility and humbleness

00:32:48--> 00:32:53

and peace are the people who Shepherd sheep and goats.

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

The people who are arrogant

00:32:58--> 00:33:01

are the people who ride horses and camels.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

Here this is actually an authentic howdy

00:33:08--> 00:33:13

it looks like it what you will or what you do affect your character.

00:33:15--> 00:33:26

Belay Alec I wanted to go home tonight and go to shake Google and just ask a bit but just look for a closed caption of a sheep

00:33:27--> 00:33:30

or a goat a look at the fees

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

will lie when I cry when I shed tears

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

The way

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

this is

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

and the other hand look at the horse

00:33:49--> 00:33:55

and we notice it you know when when the brother coming to the machine and he's driving a Ford D

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

and he's driving a Lexus.

00:34:01--> 00:34:14

You know, you notice it when you don't you know it affects your character it actually affects you It affects what you will. Why would why wouldn't we go to Hajj what we wear that Herman is up regardless of who you are, why

00:34:16--> 00:34:53

remove that. Remove that. Remove that you see somehow whatever we do with our lives affects us. Ella Mara Mara, boy, I want to tell you that there are that's not everybody, but there are people Mashallah who are very wealthy, but they know their boundaries. There are people are like blessed with that. And I'm not generalizing here. But the point I'm trying to make here is learning humility and humbleness Rasul Allah, Allah Salam learned it, add to the Subhan Allah and this is out of experience. When you have a flock of sheep

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

and one of them walks away.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Imagine you're having an oma

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

like this and one of the sheep goes away,

00:35:03--> 00:35:20

doesn't like you and start causing fitna you want to know something. If you get a stick and beat that sheep, it will never come back. Because I'm not giving the sheep what a very thick, not Sacre thick, you know, thick is

00:35:21--> 00:35:25

thick skin, the stick will not do anything with it.

00:35:27--> 00:35:31

You know, the only way you're gonna bring the cheap back to the flock, how,

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

come back, maybe, come back,

00:35:37--> 00:35:43

come back, come back. That's what leaders need to learn. leaders have to have that.

00:35:44--> 00:36:18

That you know, when you lead a community, when you lead an army, you need to learn that how to keep the people together like the flock, how to keep them together, and not necessarily even a beat everybody up. You have to sometimes you may have to beat someone up, you know, but not all the time. That's not how it works. So that is why all the profits all the messengers actually work that job. Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, welcome to our raha live karate, Aqua Abner beam is

00:36:19--> 00:36:41

a man who was not a Muslim. I used to work for him for some money, little money. Who else Shepherd it and we know that from from his his Sierra in the Quran who moosari salam imagine Musa y ou se Hawaii. Why Russa in particular because Musa was brought up were in a balance

00:36:43--> 00:36:53

the lifestyle of what and quite frankly Prophet Musa also is that kind we read his biography he was what his reaction is always what

00:36:55--> 00:37:03

Listen, you can you know you can blame him for anything. I mean, but his reaction is tough. So Allah subhana wa Taala took him what

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

14 years.

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

The story when he arrived madeon fleeing Egypt.

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

He saw those two girls

00:37:16--> 00:37:23

with the sheep. And I want to tell you f1 on Mojave, the story of Musa hardeeville in

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

Syria Colin Campbell put an a una Moosa

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

the Quran is about to come become Muslim.

00:37:33--> 00:37:39

Because if you read the Quran, every two three pages you flip there is a mention of what

00:37:40--> 00:37:41


00:37:42--> 00:37:57

Rasul Allah, Allah is Allah when he will he is to be hurt or harm what would he say Rahim Allah Who? may Allah have mercy on my brother? Moosa, there is a mention of him. And

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

look at that situation which I shared with you today.

00:38:02--> 00:38:05

The hot button Juma regarding killing the Egyptian

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

that was you know, a moment of what

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

you don't have courage

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

your Muslim brother is being beaten down by a non Muslim

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

and he's asking for your help. And you know, you will get in trouble if you help him

00:38:25--> 00:38:25


00:38:26--> 00:38:31

he wouldn't he had that courage he had that character you know, we have

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

you know, I was looking at one of the in the social media, a girl was beaten down and the guys came around not helping her. Guess what?

00:38:47--> 00:39:05

You don't do this. I mean, help the lady help her. You don't you don't have that anymore. We don't have that people who have courage when they see something wrong. They step up the let me do this. Let me help out of the situation. So Paul, Allah, he did this.

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

And by mistake he ended up

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

killing the guy

00:39:12--> 00:39:14

because of his curries because of his work.

00:39:16--> 00:39:34

He said let me heal. So he helped he ended up accidentally Be careful he did not intentionally kill him. He basically pushed him it's coincide with his father he passed away by the word got to him that listen, they are about to arrest you. He fled.

00:39:35--> 00:39:48

As soon as he arrived that strange place he sees another situation anybody would say well, man, I'm not gonna help anybody anymore. You know anybody in his sound mind will say what I'm done with this. I'm not gonna do it anymore.

00:39:50--> 00:39:58

That's why I fled the balance and I've now I have and, but he steps up again. makapuu Kuma

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Either way this is the airport that delhi

00:40:04--> 00:40:08

00:41:06--> 00:41:11

00:41:13--> 00:41:14

but not for free.

00:41:16--> 00:41:25

You have to shepherd work for me take these flux now and water them every day for 18 years.

00:41:27--> 00:41:44

But if you complete them 10 and you should negotiate for your daughter on behalf of your daughter be a good negotiator that's the dowry and this is where he is where we get the ruling and regarding the favor dowry when you marry a woman, you say I'm gonna give you $10,000 here is 1009 1000 where

00:41:45--> 00:41:57

the fields normally you guys never paid unless there is a divorce then you when it comes up, but you never remember it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, Are you agile enough?

00:41:58--> 00:42:12

Which of the two terms that Moosa complete the eight or the 10 call an act maluma what alpha Houma meaning the 10 the inner rasulillah he either one that was

00:42:13--> 00:42:21

when a messenger of Allah that messenger of Allah promises he fulfills what the best in any rate, he spent 10 years

00:42:23--> 00:42:31

10 years Shepherd learning what patients how to he's gonna lead many astray he will

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

talk about various right

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

00:42:38--> 00:42:41

Salah when he ascended Allah giving him 50 Salah

00:42:57--> 00:43:04

Go back and ask for less for English India alleged to Tomomi public

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

sufia Pamela Gianni. He was out there.

00:43:12--> 00:43:21

And they used to harm him so bad. I don't want to turn this into Moosa, but we'll go back here that mommy Naveen Illa Allah Allah.

00:43:24--> 00:43:28

When Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reached the age of

00:43:31--> 00:43:32


00:43:35--> 00:43:36

he took a trip

00:43:37--> 00:43:43

with his uncle a Batali to trade in a sham

00:43:45--> 00:43:51

and when we say shamea is Sham is four countries right now. faustin

00:43:53--> 00:43:53


00:43:55--> 00:43:56

low lowdon

00:43:58--> 00:43:58


00:43:59--> 00:44:00

that's a sham.

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

But normally the capital is what

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

puts Jerusalem

00:44:09--> 00:44:19

in the way the something very interesting happened and that story by the way is authentic Sahaja tirmidhi later on in Albania.

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

Among by the name of the hero,

00:44:25--> 00:44:29

his name is Rafa Hara, based on how you read it.

00:44:32--> 00:44:37

He met his uncle and he said, Who is this little boy that you have with you?

00:44:38--> 00:44:40

He said, Why are you asking?

00:44:41--> 00:44:48

He said by Allah since I arrived since he arrived, he was able to see that and behave

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

or mahira

00:44:51--> 00:44:54

by the way, was an outcast

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

of the Christian beliefs

00:44:59--> 00:45:00


00:45:00--> 00:45:05

He did not condone the Pauline theology. If you know what I'm talking about here,

00:45:07--> 00:45:24

the concept of Son of God and the Trinity and you know, all of this is introduced by a man by the name of Paul, a self claimed disciple who never really met Jesus in his life. He's the one who introduced all of this into Christianity. And later on the imperial powers of

00:45:25--> 00:45:32

the Roman Emperor, enforced his theology into the Christian world.

00:45:33--> 00:45:39

Like right now, you know, they they try to say we, you know, we can fight Islam anymore. So let's create what

00:45:40--> 00:45:46

American Islam new Islam, Islam, that what? flexible Islam, progressive Islam,

00:45:47--> 00:46:03

and actually, they use money to do this. I mean, they fund certain organizations, you're asleep, but there are certain organizations in the US Muslim organizations who receive funds, because they promote a certain version of Islam, because that's the version that they need and worldwide.

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

I mean, who amongst you heard of a meeting that happened in a place called grace in the last year?

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

who heard about that meeting?

00:46:14--> 00:46:17

You guys don't know about that meeting in Grozny. Chechnya.

00:46:18--> 00:46:24

Huh. You know, why they were meeting they are trying to define who are a hallucinogen, ah,

00:46:26--> 00:46:40

the whole meeting and who funded this meeting? The United Arab Emirates and these places and at the end, they said what? Okay, so now all Gemma affiliate apart in the believes are ashari ilma. 3d.

00:46:44--> 00:46:51

Very interesting. That means that people who follow the way of the messengers and his companions are not understood. Now, Gemma.

00:46:53--> 00:47:31

Yeah, and this is beside the point that I just want to say when I tell you that, that's the version of Islam that they want. Likewise, in Christianity. You see, this is what happened, this guy came in and he introduced all these things into Christianity. And there was always that conflict between the Pauline theology and the other one, they call it Ariana theology, the theology of the disciples that Allah is one and only, and Jesus is the messengers. So there was a conflict. They started conflicting. It's like these days you have that conflict between soon and what?

00:47:32--> 00:47:44

So the Roman Empire, the Roman Emperor, said, I don't want this in my kingdom. So he held a famous meeting in a place called nicea

00:47:45--> 00:47:49

the 318, after Prophet Isa was raised.

00:47:50--> 00:47:56

And he said to these theologians, Christian theology, you guys come up with a resolution? Who is Jesus?

00:47:57--> 00:48:01

You meet here and tell me who is Jesus? Which one is the sun or is the messenger

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

you and somehow the opinion of the Pauline that sun and the Trinity was

00:48:12--> 00:48:33

introduced and enforced? That Emperor came out of that meeting, he started burning the books, killing anybody. And that's how monk ship was introduced, why Christians, theologians or religious leaders started going into sanctuaries because they told them listen, you leave we're gonna kill you.

00:48:35--> 00:48:47

For that's how that's, this is the guy right here, the healer, just to show you that he's aware of it. So he said to his uncle avatar, take this kid back home

00:48:49--> 00:48:50

for a half an hour.

00:48:53--> 00:48:57

And afraid if they recognize him in Jerusalem, they will kill him.

00:48:58--> 00:49:04

By Allah, I have seen every rock every three prostrating to him.

00:49:05--> 00:49:19

Not I better of course, respect in respect to him. And I saw the seal of prophethood between his shoulders. He is the Prophet

00:49:20--> 00:49:22

that is to emerge

00:49:25--> 00:49:28

in the Arabian Peninsula, take him back.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

Of course.

00:49:33--> 00:49:37

If you read the story of Solomon and his acceptance of Islam segment the virgin

00:49:39--> 00:49:51

indicates that to that these Christians theologians the the new about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Abu Talib took him back to Mecca,

00:49:52--> 00:49:56

heeding and the advice of this

00:49:57--> 00:49:58


00:50:00--> 00:50:01

He stayed there.

00:50:02--> 00:50:04

As he grown up

00:50:05--> 00:50:12

as he was growing up salaallah alayhi wasallam, the teenage years, the ears of teenagers

00:50:13--> 00:50:24

two things happen that are fascinating or interesting in his life, a war that is known by the War of the wicked horrible for Joffe.

00:50:26--> 00:50:35

why it is called the War of the wicked people, we know that there are four sacred month in Islam. Three of them come in sequence

00:50:38--> 00:50:48

the hedger washa Hola, hola, Muharram and Roger. One of them is so during these four months, you're not allowed to fight.

00:50:50--> 00:51:13

The Arabs did wage a huge battle. And Quraysh was one of the combatants and actually we read in the books that are so subtle and help his uncle's with giving them outros and so forth. The second thing which is our assaults Allah Allah, Salah Murrayfield to echo it's called Hill fool, fool.

00:51:15--> 00:51:23

And he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding it, that even after he accepted Islam,

00:51:24--> 00:51:41

that I witnessed an event in the house of Abdullayev Nigel Dion Jodan, one of the leaders of Mecca. If I am, this is after he became a prophet, if I am to be invited to join it again, I will do it.

00:51:43--> 00:51:57

What event A Finally, the Arab leaders agreed that whenever there is an oppressed person in Mecca, they will stand for his rights.

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

And the reason why amercian came to Mecca,

00:52:03--> 00:52:09

and he sold a man by the name of Al Asad, Noah is certainly the father of

00:52:10--> 00:52:24

certain commodities, and he refused to pay him. So this man went to the leaders helped me get my money back from your tribesmen held me, nobody held him, he got on the mountain, and he started shouting.

00:52:26--> 00:52:51

So the people did not like this. So they got together, and they bought together health and Alliance, that we're gonna come to the rescue of those who are oppressed. Of course, they held this man initially, but he echoed the message that we get from this particular event that if we are as Muslims invited to help another minority group in the US

00:52:53--> 00:53:24

we must do it. We must do it. We must be out there in the front line trying to help the needy and the pool. You know, when there is hurricanes in America, this is a prime time for us to give that our when there is disasters in the world, this is the place for us to be out there because this is our you know that our with the tongue is not going to get us much.

00:53:25--> 00:53:35

But you know, I was driving with with the brother and he pointed out this is the new version of Holy Cross hospital.

00:53:37--> 00:53:41

Fancy, but it's called work. school work.

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

That way was not lecture. Yeah. That should be a step. But really for this to give its produced, we must be out there taking food to the people who are hungry in downtown Washington DC, distributing it.

00:54:44--> 00:54:47

And at the end, they say I'm a Muslim. That's all what you have to do.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

All you have to do. And in Roth, if you look like when you don't even have to say it. But this is what the prophet is telling you. That if I am invited, even though this was before it

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

lab and I participated in it prior to my prophet who he made that statement after he became a Muslim that if I am invited again to that event with the non Muslims, I will join it

00:55:15--> 00:55:18

because that's what a Muslim should do.

00:55:19--> 00:55:22

You know, and again,

00:55:24--> 00:55:27

you know that that point is very painful

00:55:28--> 00:55:31

because we cannot speak enough of it.

00:55:33--> 00:55:40

You know, when, when are we finally going to have to attain our status in America.

00:55:42--> 00:55:47
