00:00:01--> 00:00:37

Assalamualaikum My dear brothers and sisters, I've handed love we're here recording now it's me and the camera all alone and our wonderful brother behind the camera. May Allah bless him and bless you all for watching us. You may wonder What in the world happened did that people stop wanting to listen to you? Are you now just recording you and your camera? You've been abandoned that Alhamdulillah actually was going on? As some of you perhaps know, I don't know when will you watch this video, but there's a virus going on. May Allah protect us and cure those who are sick. I mean, so just to take the means as Islam teaches us to take the means and trust Allah subhanaw taala we

00:00:37--> 00:01:15

just know recording one to one and then it'll be uploaded as hamdulillah you're watching now. And then we will go back to the venues go back to our wonderful brothers and sisters and preach live while recording whenever things allow us by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that when things are loud when Allah wills, I mean, terrible. I mean, so that said, let's jump right to the topic Bismillah. Brothers and sisters, just to give you a quick reminder of the last session, we spoke about that, today be a treaty, that Peace Treaty, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam have made with the people of kurush. Some of the main points of this treaty was what number one you

00:01:15--> 00:02:04

are not to perform the pilgrimage to the Mirage this year, you come next year. The second point to share with you is that the peace treaty has documented no war. That's it enough is enough for how long for 10 years, fantastic. The third ruling in that treaty to share with you, whoever wants to join the Muslims and have an alliance with them. So be it and whoever wants to join the chorus and have an alliance with them. So be it. So for example, a tribe that joined the Muslims was whom Benny Hosea, and the tribe that joined kurush was Benny Bucher and whoever joins has to abide by the rules, no matter who you are, you're not allowed to fight for 10 years, and things of that sort. So

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

with that being said, brothers and sisters, somewhere around that time,

00:02:09--> 00:02:55

Amber in the last, what about him, one of mechas Elite politicians, he is a genius when it comes to insight and looking at politics and looking at trends. And he noticed that the matter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is continuing to grow and grow more and more Muslims are coming in to basically to their religion. So basically, with that being said, I'm going to ask gather some of his friends. And he tells them I have an idea. They asked him, What's your idea? He said, You see the match of Mohammed growing? My idea is for us to go to Africa move out of this Arabian peninsula and go across the ocean across the sea and go to Africa and be under which leadership and Najafi Why is

00:02:55--> 00:03:41

that? Listen, he said if Mohammed wins, and eventually becomes victorious all over the globe and they all accept Islam, then I would rather be under the leadership of Anna joshy who is of a different culture, different ethnicity, different religion, different even language, perhaps rather than being under the leadership of Mohammed Allahu Akbar. That's how much amber asked hates Islam hates Mohamed Salah. If that's the case, I'd rather be under an Apache and not Mohammed and if option to our people Christ, eventually As the years passed by he they take over the Muslims and they take over Arabia and they become stronger so on and so forth, then they know us very well and

00:03:41--> 00:04:28

we can always go back and they know that we're good people inshallah. I said, inshallah, from my end he didn't say inshallah. So with that being said, the Friends of honorable asked they liked the idea. And let's go and they went to avicennia once they arrive to Abyssinia amabilis has prepared a lot of gifts which he loves. I'm not sure if you guys remember from a previous session, what was an Jackie's favorite type of gifts. They were leather products made in Mecca, purses, luggage, things of that sort, maybe a wallet, a long island but leather products. So honorable asked when he arrived to at the senior, he was completely shocked why he saw an ambassador coming from whom from Mohammed

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

Ali, his Salatu was Salam. The prophets are seldom sends an ambassador from Medina all the way to the senior to undigested why, because if you remember many, many years ago, about 15 years ago, some Muslims emigrated from Mecca Mecca, not Medina from Mecca to Abyssinia to avoid the persecution and torture. So there's a Muslim minority in Abyssinia, a small group and that Ambassador is coming to talk to talk to the Muslims that

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

To come back to where to Medina, there's a safe nation safe society for you to come back. Allahu Akbar. So unrelaxed when he was shocked to see the ambassador, look what came to his mind, he told his friends, if I am able to talk to you and convince him to hand me that Ambassador and kill him, then I have sufficed that people have kurush they will be very happy that you know, Christ themselves are not involved. The guy just left us right. They'll be very happy. So I'm gonna balance walks into under joshy. He says, Then I prostrated to a nudge, and that's the way to greet the king. Then he says, Are you Hello, Malik. ocking these gifts are all for you. He got excited. He saw the

00:05:49--> 00:06:46

gifts, nice leather products, once the gifts were given, and Natasha was happy. Look what the law says. He says a ul medical King. Just now a guy came to you who is an ambassador of someone who harmed us, someone who gave us a hard time me and the leaders back in Mecca and crush. So if you do not mind, hand that man to me, so I can kill him. And he got so angry, got so frustrated. He told amabilis and pay attention to what he says he told the number. You want me to hand you the ambassador of the man who receives revelation from God. What does that mean? And Natasha is what is Muslim Allahu Akbar. May Allah make your last words. And my last words let Illa Illa Allah and the

00:06:46--> 00:07:36

generally accepted Islam. So Ramblas, he was surprised for what he said. He says, a cattolica who is you really say he's a prophet received revelation from God? And he says, I swear to you, he's a prophet follow him. And this man, Mohammed alayhi salatu was Salam will eventually be victorious over his enemies. The way Prophet Moses was victory, victorious over who? Over Pharaoh and his soldiers. So then under lost, what do you think he did? He said, Can I give you my pledge to Islam? Can you be a witness for my conversion to Islam? I'm Robin last, after that hatred. Now he wants to accept Islam. Yes. So he said Go for it. They shook hands honorable as accepted Islam. He testified

00:07:36--> 00:07:44

no deity worthy of worship but Allah and Mohammed Allah His salat wa salam peace be upon him is a lost profit.

00:07:45--> 00:08:30

Will he tell his friends, Amber brought his friends with them from Mecca. Amber said, attempt to Islami I have hid my Islam, from my friends, brothers and sisters. With that being said, What did the ambassador remember the ambassador? What did he do with the companions, the minority, he will go talk to them. But if you don't mind, before I jump to that there's a very important lesson we have to really touch on what is it underbalanced has been receiving invitation to Islam for approximately 20 years. How long? About 20 years? Now, once he accepted not once was he like, you know, I'm hesitant? So what does this tell you? Is the way he's receiving Islam for 20 years, it was wrong.

00:08:30--> 00:09:12

Oh, the bill, of course not seek Allah's refuge from saying something like that. What I'm trying to say is, I may want to give advice to someone, and that person is just not listening is just not changing. And I've been trying for years and they're not. It's not always the problem in you. The way I'm saying it is wrong, then you start accusing yourself. Sometimes it is, but not all the time. And sometimes the key to this person's heart is not with you is with someone else. And that is why sometimes for me to advise an individual, if it's not working, one of the ways to make it possible inshallah, by the will of Allah is have someone else, talk to that individual. That's something to

00:09:12--> 00:09:50

truly appreciate from that. Another thing we have to learn from Edna joshy May Allah be pleased by him. He did not see our been lost. And some of us may fall into that May Allah forgive me and all those who may fall into it. And that Joshua, when you saw our allowance who was very evil towards the Muslims and towards the Prophet, he didn't say there's no hope in Him. There's no point in talking to him about Islam. He didn't say that. Rather, he took a shot at it and invited him to Islam, Allahu Akbar, and many times we fail and I feel May Allah forgive us. Yeah, Allah forgive us, but to share with you a story where life just happened this week. As I was driving me and my family

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

into the parking lot of one of the plazas. I heard very loud music that had such bad language.

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

No matter who's watching, no matter who you are, and Alon was best if he had some decency, and I think well of all of us in sha Allah, the music was so bad. Even the atheist will say that that's pretty bad lyrics right there. That's how bad it was. May Allah forgive us. So that music was blasting show loud. And I was upset that my family gets to hear that my kids get to hear that that people around get to hear that. And I'm so sad that Allah is being disrespected in the public like that. So I come to my mind, you know what, let me just drop my family first. So I dropped them to the store in that Plaza, and they parked the car, I'll be honest, I was hesitant. But I knew I gotta

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

do something. So I said, let me go try to talk to the owner of that vehicle, maybe can lower the music or something like that. And I don't know what car was it coming from? It's very loud. I know. It's only in Sharla a matter of seconds. So I find it as I was walking, by the way, would you go? Would you talk to the person? Or would you like come on and just go you do your shopping and leave? You know, the circumstances play a role in what to do. So while I was walking, I found the car ready? The car was double parked. What does it mean? It took two parking spots turning sideways. And it was a black car, black tinted windows, black rims. And the windows were open just a little bit. I

00:11:24--> 00:12:06

have no idea who's in the car. How many people would you know go or like? Of course not now. So I actually felt the same way. I said, You know what, let me just do my thing. Because my family, let me just go back, as I was hesitant as about to leave the song mentioned a sentence that was absolutely horrendous and evil, bad words. So I said no way, I gotta do something. So I walked from the front of the vehicle, because to see who's in there, everything is tinted except the front. I looked. And there was no one in the car. How La quwata illa. Why would you do that? So I looked around, and there's a store after guests which store the guy might be at, I saw the store, which was

00:12:06--> 00:12:47

a hookah place. So I opened the door and walked in. By the way, you know, what just came to mind is that when I walked in, maybe some of the brothers and sisters or brothers would walk into a hookah store. Watch out before you judge stuff from law, look at this guy giving us lectures and walk into a hookah store. May Allah forgive us, I mean, so I opened the door, smiled, tried my best to do my best. And I smiled, and I said, What would you happen to know? Who is the owner of this black vehicle outside? So a man big beard sunglasses faced me and looked at me. And he said, I think he looked because he just faced me like that, even though he's wearing sunglasses. And he said, I'm the

00:12:47--> 00:13:26

owner of the car. His I told him, brother, if you do not mind, the music being played is allowed in a way that and all the bad language that is in it might be very disturbing to others, especially that you know, I have my children. And I wouldn't want them to hear something like that. So if you can please just turn down the volume. What do you think you did? Well, light is what he did. He said, I'm so sorry about diet. I apologize. Yeah, sure, sure. Let's go. And he walked to the car, and he turned down the music Allahu Akbar. You might look at these things and the scenarios and say, with that person, there's no chance No, there's a lot of good in people's hearts. May Allah purify

00:13:26--> 00:14:09

our hearts and purify everyone's heart. So we have these opportunities, do your best and be wise Of course. And what's the circumstances May Allah increase my wisdom and your wisdom Amira, by Allah mean? So with that being said, that Ambassador that came to the Muslim minority were in Abyssinia action in Amazonia. So he told them that now it's safe for you to go to Medina and hamdulillah the Muslims are coming back from Abyssinia all the way to Medina. Brother, how many years have they been away from the prophets? I said lamb about 15 years Allahu Akbar. You can imagine that how much they're missing the Prophet and the believers. And they come back, the prophet SAW Salem sees them.

00:14:09--> 00:14:50

One of the ones that were in was an EPA senior was Jaffa Eben abbia toilet, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophet SAW him. He was so happy he kissed him on his forehead out of joy. Then the prophet SAW Selim, I'll share with you two stories with that group of companions that came from Abba Sr. Bismillah. The Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Did you say Salaam Salaam had been saying it for a long time? Someone Allahu alayhi wa sallam when you hear that beautiful name, ask Allah to send his peace and his blessings upon His Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So with that being said, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam told the people that came

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

from Abyssinia, tell me something interesting. Tell me something amazing that you have witnessed the prophets. I said love wants to learn and I cannot let this pass by just like that.

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

The prophets are silent who received revelation from God is humbling himself in a way that he wants to learn from the believers. What have they gone through? What have they went through something and experience to benefit from? So who spoke, they use? They use the younger people. They said, Yasuo Allah, we have an amazing story to share with you. What's the story? There was an elder lady, a nun. She was walking, and on her head was a jug of water. Okay. While she was walking with a jug of water on her head, one of the youth in Abyssinia came slowly from the back and then he pushed her and when he pushed her she fell on her knees. That jug fell on the ground and the jug broke and the water

00:15:47--> 00:16:34

scattered and was all over the place. That lady the elder, elderly nun, she stood up Allahu Akbar stood up and looked at this young man. And she told them self attack lemma yehudah or you traitor or you loser or you treacherous person, you will know on the Day of Judgment. When Allah establishes the footstool when Allah will allow the hands and the feet to speak of what they did. Allahu Akbar, you will know on that day, my case and your case, my situation and your situation, meaning I will take my right from you. I might be all today. I might not be able to run after your young man because you will run away and escape by your piano. There's no way for you to run away and hide

00:16:34--> 00:17:19

Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he heard that from the youth. He said solder cut sada cut. This lady has said the truth she has said the truth. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this beautiful lesson. He said pay for your cut this Allahu Allah, how would Allah purify how Allah will dignify a society in which they do not help the ones who are weak and oppressed, Allahu Akbar. And that's something to pay attention to. We may not find success, when we have an opportunity to lift hardships from others, left the oppression from the those who are oppressed. If we don't do anything about that we may not be successful. May Allah subhanho wa

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

Taala grant us all success. Another story for you.

00:17:24--> 00:17:45

May Allah be pleased by him one of the greatest brothers walking on Earth at that time, he walked into his house. Do you remember the name of one of his daughters? Do you remember? No. She the daughter of Amara Dylon she also is the wife of the process asylum. Her name was have some may Allah be pleased by her and their father

00:17:47--> 00:17:56

walks into his house and helps us there. And with half son was a smash been to mice whose asthma you will know now.

00:17:57--> 00:18:45

I'm going to Qatar when he walked in. He asked half the Who's there? She said a sniping Jeremiah says here. He said bahariya is she's the one who came and she crossed the sea. And now she is with us here as my mentor and I said Yes, it's me. So I want to hop up the lawn. He says something which is very interesting to show you what the minds of the companions are most concerned of which is which is reward which is has an act which has a lot of pleasure. Rather than itself. It tells us smack. You know what sort of neck combinator we have beat you to emigrating to the prophet SAW Selim. As a result, our emigration holds more more reward and more nobility because they went from

00:18:45--> 00:19:37

where from Mecca to Medina directly a smack went from Mecca to Abyssinia to Medina, so she had a one stop trip. As for the Omar and the immigrants, may Allah be pleased by them. They went one shot, a snap got angry for holiday but she got upset. He said love Allah here, Omar. No, no, no, no, no. You think your immigration has more reward and nobility than US law? I don't approve of that. She said you were people some of you were hungry and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fed you amongst you are people who were ignorant and the Prophet sallallahu. Allison educated you. As for us. We were a minority. We were far away in a whole other country. We didn't have that support system you

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

guys have. Then she said well, I will not take a sip of water. I will not take another bite of food until I go tell Muhammad Ali he is Salatu was salam, the prophet of Allah what you said, Your Honor, I will not add any words. I will not take off any words. I will say exactly what you said. May Allah grant us truthfulness.

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

May Allah grant us love towards the deen the religion, love and care towards a lot pleasure the way as Matt and Omar had Allahu Akbar. So I snapped into him. He goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she tells them exactly what their own would have told her. With that being said, what was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam response? The Prophet told her a snack, no. Omar and the companions who came along let him Hydra wahida to them is the reward of one immigration from Matt from Mecca. Sorry, from Medina. No, let me say that one more time. Yes. from Mecca to Medina, one immigration. As for you and the others who came from Abyssinia, you will not have just the same

00:20:47--> 00:21:21

reward, no luck, a major attack you have double the reward Allahu Akbar. So as not been Jeremiah, he was so happy. And she started sharing the Hadith with others. So much so that men and women that used to be in Abyssinia when they heard that they were not satisfied until they hear it right from the mouth of us messenger amazed that she and those who went to Abyssinia get double the reward Subhana Allah May Allah make our concern as your brothers and sisters, you know salamati says I have good news for you.

00:21:23--> 00:22:18

Good news for you ready? For so Eliza salami said in authentic narration. times of patients will come soon. Charla, what does that mean that type of patient I am a Sabra. A yam the days that will require so much patience due to the hardship, the trials and tribulations. He said on these days when they come in the future. May Allah protect us. He said the one who does good deeds on that day, he will get she will get 55 zero 50 times that reward. Any one of you will get the companions they said any one of us or them those will come in the future. He said no 50 of you the companions Allahu Akbar. So maybe a Salah a prayer that you perform during the days of trials and tribulations and

00:22:18--> 00:22:59

will lie the trials are increasing day by day, year by year May Allah protect us May Allah safeguard all of us. You perform a Salah, you perform a good deed, you get 50 times the reward of one of the companions, may Allah be pleased by them had they do it in their time Subhan Allah just to appreciate Allah appreciates your struggle a lot, I appreciate the effort that you're putting, because you have to go through a lot of obstacles, to be able to perform it. And just to clarify something, this does not make you and I above the status of the Sahaba of course the companions but this is terms of that one deed being multiplied by 50 May Allah allow us to be with the companions

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

and the prophet SAW Salem in the highest levels in general. I mean, there are many brothers and sisters one of the healthiest competitions are the ones where the prize is given in the afterlife in addition to this life, may Allah grant you the best of this life and afterlife. We say robina attina for dunya Hasina. Well Phil committee has been working on other than not, Allah grant us the best of this life and the best of the afterlife, and May Allah protect us all from the hellfire. Now, in the seventh year after immigration, one year after the treaty was written, remember the treaty, what was one of the conditions you cannot perform Umrah this year, which is the sixth year you can perform it

00:23:42--> 00:24:27

the year after and now we are one year after that treaty was written the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions. They plan to go for ombre. Imagine the joy. Imagine the excitement many years, seven years they have not seen the Kaaba seven years. We have not seen extended families seven years they have not walked into their place of birth, where they lived there for many, many years and decades. Alhamdulillah now they're heading towards Mecca. Brothers and sisters. However, Qureshi is very sad, very disappointed, and they do not love the Prophet. Are they going to have war, no war, but they just don't are not happy with their presence. And with that being said, rumors

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

were being spread. What were the rumors that the Muslims are weak. The Muslims are having this disease that caused them to have skin issues, body issues, they're unhealthy and they're so exhausted and so weak. So the Prophet suddenly heard that Allah revealed that to him, and in the prophets, I send them he commanded two things to take place ready. He told the people to show your right shoulder so when people do the pilgrimage, let me clarify that first. Let's say you have like a towel specifically for the brothers.

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

You have a towel that covers both of your shoulders. So the Prophet says such a lamp to the men, no, show one of your shoulders. So now the shoulder the arm will show the right one. And the President said number two, the first three rounds work swiftly or brisk with brisk, brisk walk is about three to four and a half miles per hour, roughly. So these are the two things. And with that being said, the Muslims obeyed, showed the arm and start to brisk walk the first three rounds there Quraysh they were waiting to see the weakness, but they saw strength. They were so amazed. They told others. These are the people you're telling me that they are weak. These are the ones you're telling me they

00:25:50--> 00:26:35

have this disease and they have this issue with their body. Look at them. They're stronger than us, Allahu Akbar. And there's something to learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is good PR public relations, good way of inviting others to Islam Dawa. It's a package and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it within the correct parameters. And it's something you and I have to learn brothers and sisters. We try to give the good image of Islam but never at the expense of displeasing Allah. So for example, if people start saying, Oh, these Muslims, God has hard rules on them, they have to pray five times a day, every single day. We don't say good PR. Let's just start

00:26:35--> 00:27:17

praying. So they can see Islam as gentle and soft. No. But for example, if they say, Muslims are a burden on the country, Muslims taking the resources they're taking and not giving back. Muslims have no value in society, they add nothing, they're a burden. No, show them that we're not burden, show them that we contribute to your best ability, obviously with wisdom, case by case, I'll give you share with you a story that we went through. And I we believe there's a lot of stories we failed in or I failed in. Obviously, I may not share all of them with you. But we'll share the ones that succeeded. And we can benefit May Allah accept from all of us, when I was an engineering student

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

back at university

00:27:19--> 00:28:07

during one of the semesters by the Allah's help, I was one of the top 10 students in the Faculty of Engineering. And the way they honor the students, one of the ways is that they get the names printed and posted at who, at the office of the head of the department. So anytime you walk by you have questions to the head of the department, you see these names. So I was walking, and I saw the names, but my name was not there. Alice may witness and Allah knows the intention, I did not care whatsoever. But all what came to my mind is that I want my name there. I want my mood which looks like Mohammed which comes from Ahmed this name that shows its Muslim most likely, I want it to be

00:28:07--> 00:28:46

there. So people when they walk like you know what we have people that contribute to society, we have people that kind of do good in school just ask a lot to accept. So I went sent a note requested that My name is not on the list, and the updated the list and the name is there. May Allah accept from all of us, and May Allah grant you all all of you the highest grades in this life and the afterlife. So these examples the Prophet Sasson has utilized to show the true image of Islam. People tell you all Muslims are such and such like Actually no, we're not we help this we help that. May Allah grant us wisdom. I mean, terrible Allen, brothers and sisters, what was the agreement? Three

00:28:46--> 00:29:07

days that's all what you stay in Makkah, three days, not three and a half, not for three days. And when the three days came to an end, the process some online, I send them seven years he has not been Mecca seven years. He still kept his promise. And that's what we appreciate from our role model Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say somebody was telling me Allah bless you.

00:29:09--> 00:29:13

Three days, then he was heading back. But guess what?

00:29:14--> 00:29:17

They came to know of a girl who was an orphan.

00:29:18--> 00:30:00

orphan why, who was her father who was her parents. Her father was Hamza bin Abdullah mipela Hamza was one of the four uncles of the province asylum. Is he alive or dead? No, he passed away in the Battle of offered by his daughter was left behind in Makkah. The assailant came to know that and three people Ali Raja Mohan and Jaffa bin Abdullah, remember Jaffa who just came from Abyssinia, the brother of Allah He was there and they may Allah be pleased by all of them. So I Li Jaffa and they were fighting over who takes care of the girl. They want to sponsor the girl. They want

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

To foster the girl, but you know what's amazing? The one who really wants it the most is the girl herself. She's the one who said, Please, I'd rather be with you than staying in Mecca. What in the world? Did she see from them? The wonderful people in three days, that she is willing to go and live with them for the rest of her life? What did they do? How did they react? How did they behave? How do they smile to another how they kept their promises, how they prayed, what they recited, all of that has an impact on that little girl, Allahu Akbar. She said she wants to join, and they were fighting over caring for her. You think I would let this pass by? No. Because in the Arabian

00:30:42--> 00:30:46

Peninsula, during that generation of adults, what did they used to do?

00:30:47--> 00:31:33

The first session I spoke to you, we shared with you how they used to not show much respect to women, especially the younger girls. What did Allah say? Some of them used to bury them alive? Yes or no. during that era, I'm not saying 500 years ago, before the companions came during their lifetime. There are people that did that. And look how Islam makes people view women. respect them. They're fighting over who takes care of the girl Allahu Akbar. This wasteland teaches us to respect our wonderful sisters or the the women around the world. Look how Islam honored. The girls look at this. Back in jelly ignorant days. They used to be so embarrassed and they used to cover their face

00:31:33--> 00:32:19

when they were told you have a new baby girl. Now Islam changes that no, you are honored. You are honored to have a baby girl Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let me share with you what he says. He says, Whoever takes care of two little girls, huh? You have two daughters, you take care of them had to blue until they reach older age, you take care of them very well, as much as you can. Just a Yeoman qiyamah that man, that parent that mother will come to me on the Day of Judgment. And how will we be to the Prophet he said just like this, while the Masada and he made his fingers like that. That's how you will be with the Prophet of Allah. If you take care of your

00:32:19--> 00:32:55

daughters. One more Hadith about children. There's a mother that came with her two daughters to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I know some of you are thinking, What if I have only one daughter, even if you have maybe no daughters. If your intention is, if I was to have a daughter, then I would fulfill this hadith. I pray to Allah to reward you with it. Even if you don't have one, Allahu Akbar. This is what Allah appreciates our truthful intention. So with that being said, a mother comes with two daughters to Asia, knocks on the door.

00:32:56--> 00:33:13

May Allah be pleased by her the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she opens the door. She sees the mother. What does the mother want? She wants some food. All what I had to provide was one date camera. The mother grabbed the date

00:33:14--> 00:33:54

toward the Torah into two pieces, cut it into two pieces, gave one to one daughter and give the other piece of the other daughter. Isha was moved by that scene. And there's a lot of lessons we can take from it. But for the sake of time, we'll proceed to show you how humble the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam was when the President came back home. I shared with the Prophet this very moving scene of a mother who's hungry, but she prepared her children over herself ready for the Hadeeth we want to share with you. The prophet SAW Selim when he heard the story from Ayesha, his wife, may Allah be pleased by her. He told her menu Lehman had the hill Bennati Shayla, whoever

00:33:54--> 00:34:38

takes care of the daughters of such ladies girls, whoever takes care of them, and does well you take care of them. Well, what happens Canella who sit around me and not Allah will make these girls your daughters as a shield protection. From what from a loss punishment from the Hellfire Lama? Can you imagine I myself 100 I have daughters, may Allah bless all of our children. Can you imagine that my protection in hell or me going in heaven is connected with how I raised my daughters. You see what Islam has brought to the table of how we should view our women and respect and honor. This one isn't just for the daughters. No, you go to who go to the mother, Allahu Akbar, where do we start when we

00:34:38--> 00:34:59

speak of the mother, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then came to him all of this is Sierra. All of this is live from Mohammed Salah. And then came to him. He said oh prophet of Allah. Men aka nasty because the Sahaba t who deserves the most respect from my end who deserves the best attitude

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

who deserves if I have one gift? Who should I give it to? If I have one kind word to say whom should it be directed to? He said oh mark your mom. If all what you have is five free minutes to call someone who should that person be your mom? If you have one gift to give who should be the priority your mom? Then he said then who? omak your mom again? And then who? Almost your mom three times, okay and then who he said number four, then your father may Allah bless our fathers, bless us fathers and grandfathers all gender immutable element and behind the camera as a new father, may Allah grant him Jenna and May Allah make his children amongst the righteous I mean, and all the

00:35:42--> 00:36:18

family the amiable Allah mean. So with that being said, Brother, hold on, man. What about the wife? Okay, I got you. I got you even though I've honor and respect to the woman for so ally sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did he say? He said the best one amongst us. You know who's the best one watching? You know who's the best one speaking you know who is the best is the one who is best to their family, and specifically their wives. So panela your greatness you want to know how great you are? Check how great you are with your spouse, brothers and sisters would like just one of the Messiah. He shares a beautiful story, which is so true. We go to Mecca. And if you go to Mecca to

00:36:18--> 00:36:22

show how the panel how Allah honors sisters and women and the right proper way.

00:36:23--> 00:37:10

An announcement is made in Mecca, one of the busiest spots in the world. People coming from all around the world, circulating around the house of the King of all kings, Allah. An announcement is made. What's the announcement? Now there is a funeral prayer, funeral prayer. Allah, Allah, what does that mean? When the young girl that died? We all pray for her. And imagine the circulation around the house of the King of all kings. In the most sacred spot in the world. Everything comes to a stop everything. The older people, the younger people that males and the females stop to go prey on that little girl allow what respect you want more respect and honor and a generic one to all the

00:37:10--> 00:37:52

sisters for solar lights? Allahu alayhi wa sallam some blood sisters are asking what about us? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says people that go to Jenna have three groups. One of them original Rahim rocky called a man who is merciful with a soft gentle heart liquidity the polar bear to every relative May Allah allow us to be people of that I mean terrible Allah mean, and the prophet SAW Selim in one narration, he says advice to all men, pushing them making it clear. Be good to the woman may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us respect and understanding amiable alanine. Brothers and sisters With that being said, Who will take the girl What do you think? Who will

00:37:52--> 00:38:45

sponsor the orphan? Jafar, Annie, or is it there fighting in who is the judge Mohammed Salah Jaffa says, I have to take care of her we're close and family. And it says the same thing. Then the prophet SAW Selim allows Jafar been at the toilet to be the sponsor of that little girl Why? Because Jafar, his wife, just for his wife is the maternal aunt of the girl had holla in order to highlight the maternal aunt, and that gives Jaffa the higher priority and right to care for the little girl. The prophets Allah says Allah harder to be man zealot is your maternal aunt, your mom sister, is at the status of your mom, Allahu Akbar. Look at this beautiful life subtle aloha Salem we all learn

00:38:45--> 00:39:23

from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and then came to him to do so Allah in the sub to them when alveda Yasser Allah, I have committed a major, major sin. But what do you advise me to do for Allah to forgive me? Then the prophet SAW Selim says Allah, is your mom alive? Is your mom around? And this man says no, perhaps she passed away? may Allah have mercy on all our moms and dads. Then the Prophet asks him another question. I like a Holla Holla caminhada you have a maternal aunt? He said Yes, I do. The private sector better Ah ha. Then show her respect.

00:39:24--> 00:40:00

Be at her service help her out honor her show her good character because why the aunt maternal aunt is at the status of our mothers. So this is a call to all of us by the way we also love our uncle right? Our mom our dad sisters, we love them all inshallah, but there's something special about the mother sisters, may Allah allow us to be very kind to them. I mean that I mean, with this being said brothers and sisters just two ended shallow the first session. We got some good news for you What happened? On the blast Remember him? Yeah, he accepted Islam in Abyssinia. Now he wants to go

00:40:00--> 00:40:56

to Medina and join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam imagine him leaving Africa, heading towards Arabia traveling towards Medina. On his way, guess what happens? He meets mechas courageous, all Ultimate Warrior. Greatest soldier. Who is it? None other than Khalid Ivanova lead. Oh my god. Why What's going on? The last one you saw heard it? He said yeah, Abba Suleiman or father of Solomon, that was his nickname. Where are you headed? Hydra told him. Enough is enough. Things have been made clear. This man Mohammed is a prophet of God. Until when will we deny that La ilaha illAllah. Marquez greatest warrior mechas greatest politician, both on the same day accepting Islam

00:40:56--> 00:41:04

What an honor. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow you and I to be means of guidance to everyone so hard and they're talking an hour said,

00:41:05--> 00:41:47

me too. I'm going to Medina to convey and give the pledge. The prophet SAW Selim. And they both came. Can you imagine? I don't have a narration but just imagine them walking into the streets of Medina Haldeman Valley to turn the tables at that battle of overheard. And he defeated the Muslims. Honorable asked to try to bring the abyssinians the Muslims there, back to Mecca and torture them. Now things have changed. They're using their skills insha Allah for the sake of Allah, they're coming. And Khalid comes first. He says to the prophets, I said to him, he wants to become a Muslim. Does the Prophet say know that the Prophet not give him another chance? Will the Prophet forgive

00:41:47--> 00:42:12

him? Yes, he does. So the profits our seller extends his hand and he gives them accepts the pledge of Islam, Holy moly, now will no longer be on the side of the enemy. He's now in the army of the Muslims, Allahu Akbar, within that society, honorable Lance extends his hand, check this out, extends his hand, and the proselyte extends his hand, but then armor class takes it back.

00:42:13--> 00:42:28

So the person says, um, what made you do that? Why you took your hand back? It says, I have a condition. What? I have a condition before I accept Islam. I have a condition to be fulfilled, please, what is it for Allah to forgive my past?

00:42:29--> 00:42:42

For all what I've done in the past, whether to the Muslims to people to every for all my past than the Prophet Assalam told them three things. It says Do you not know that accepting Islam erases the past?

00:42:43--> 00:43:28

And do you not know that emigration erases the past? And do you not know that performing hajj pilgrimage erases the past? So I'm always happy. He shook the plasticizer lambs hand and he accepted Islam and this was a great grandpa, Victor's lamb, brothers and sisters, do you think the proper asylum is settled with this? That's enough amber and Amber and Khalid know the process elements to go global. He wants Islam to be spread as far as possible and conveyed to the world. How will the production convey it? How will he addressed people of other cultures ethnicities from the Roman Empire to the Persian Empire? How will he do that? All of this inshallah, in our next session,
