Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam. ala Shafi lumea evil mousseline. mohammadu Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira sera formado. My brothers and sisters, welcome to our class on lessons from the MBA mussalam.

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

We are on the story of satana know alayhis salam,

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

one of the

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

main urusan one of the greatest of the Gambia of Allah subhanho wa Taala general. And his story is a story of perseverance, a story of enormous courage, a story of

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

great efforts in the path of Islam a story of great effort, for the sake of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala gelato.

00:01:00--> 00:01:23

The mbna was Salam were sent as role models for the world to live by, to believe in to obey. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the COVID to obey the greatest of them there. They are, say it say there was a lien a mamula BIA

00:01:24--> 00:01:31

mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in whose Omid Allah subhanho data

00:01:32--> 00:02:00

caused us to be born caused us to join those of us who accepted Islam have chosen consciously to believe in his oma and to be members of his ummah. And this gives us an opportunity to follow the greatest of the mBiA musala nolet ceram was among the greatest of the abbiati mussalam. And we continue with the story.

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

We continue we

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

talked about nolet ceram.

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

And historian we talked about what New Orleans alum

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

his his

00:02:18--> 00:03:04

his complaint or loss of Hamilton, I mean, a complaint in the sense, you know, as I say all the time, the beauty of the messages of the MBR limosa beauty of the life of the mayor of Salaam was that in the daytime, they did the work of Dawa, and in the night they stood before Allah subhanaw taala. And they told you ally, their story, Our love was knows. But this is the connection with Allah subhanho data, which was their sustenance, which was their strength, which is what they're dependent on, in order to take the message of Dharma forward. So I think this is something that we need to learn, and we need to inculcate in our lives over and above everything else, which is how

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

can I

00:03:07--> 00:03:25

live my life in such a way that I spend my days doing good, productive work, taking the message of Islam to the world, both verbally and orally, as well as in terms of my life? It's very important for us

00:03:26--> 00:03:41

to create a counter narrative where people today we complain that there is so much of anti muslim propaganda and that is true. There's a lot of anti muslim propaganda. People say, Well, how can we fight that?

00:03:42--> 00:03:53

The way the most powerful way to fight that is to create an experiential, visible, counter narrative through whatever slander is being

00:03:55--> 00:04:07

loaded on you. So if we create an if we live our lives in a way, which is beautiful, in a way, which is just unfair, in a way which is which promotes the principles of Islam

00:04:08--> 00:04:48

as being beneficial for everyone in society, irrespective of who those people are, then inshallah there that is a powerful counter narrative. And even if that doesn't work, even if you are in a situation where you find that the lies and the propaganda are overwhelming, don't worry about it, because at least before Allah subhanho wa Taala, you have established the fact that you did your best, and this is something that we are seeing in the life of Larissa, because one of the things that he will see here is that despite all his best efforts, he his success was limited in terms of the number of people who accepted his message. So we don't say that.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

No one is said I'm failed because he didn't feel he was there to convey the message mama Alena lol Bella will move in Allah subhanaw taala said

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

About the NBA mussalam that the responsibility of the NBA is to convey it is not to convince, if you are convinced or not convinced the the the that responsibility is on you, the person who's receiving the message of the Navy, but for the Navy, the responsibility is to ensure that the message is conveyed in the best possible way and I have the law, the ambarella was Salam without exception, all of them did that. And also rice or syrup did that to a level of excellence Alhamdulillah.

00:05:33--> 00:05:39

So in this case now, we saw in the last lesson how know Ali Salam

00:05:42--> 00:06:14

engaged himself and involved himself in Dawa continuously and totally in need out later when he used to give them our day and night used to talk to them individually, he used to talk to them and groups, and so on and so forth. And in the in the right now he's he's complaining Carlos valterra. And he's saying Allah, this is my effort. You are witness to this, but it doesn't seem to convince them and doesn't seem to. They don't seem to understand and they don't want to accept this.

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

Now,

00:06:18--> 00:06:27

what is the reaction of the disbelievers? Now if you see this story of war, etc.

00:06:29--> 00:07:06

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned these things in Surah insaat hood, Allah said the chiefs of the disbelievers amongst his people, they said, he said, we see you but a man like ourselves. But it says, What's so special about you, you are a You are a man, we are men, we are people you are saying you are a messenger of God, we are verses of Allah, why should we believe you? Now, I want you to keep your mind on this focus, which is that these are there are two basic principles one is from the MBR mo Salah if you take the story of any interview,

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

you will find two things. One is you will find a complete and total certainty in their faith and their persistence in taking the message with which they have been judged to their people. Without exception. Every Navy did that, to the best of his ability. Right? This is clear from their lives. And the second thing which is clear from their lives is that they did this without seeking any compensation from the people for doing that. There is no nabby whatsoever whosoever who took money for the sake of the hour, there is no Nabhi, who took money in order to teach the message that he was charged with mazon a seller did not take money to teach the Torah. He said a seller did not take

00:08:00--> 00:08:54

money to teach the Injeel thou that a seller did not take money to teach the support. Even if a seller did not take money to teach his soft allies as a seller did not take money to teach the Koran, there is no Nabhi who took money to teach his religion or to teach his keytab or to do the work of no Nabhi ever took money. Nobody no one ever asked his people for compensation. On the other hand, the MBR continuously made the same remark and they said the same thing. And they made the same declaration to say that our reward is with Allah subhanho wa Taala bull Allah me, we do not ask you for adger Our adger is with Allah subhana wa Taala Gentle, gentle. So two things are very clear with

00:08:54--> 00:09:39

respect to all mBiA musala. They gave their message with complete certainty. And with total perseverance, they never left. They never walked away. The only exception was was unison is and we know his story. And then again, we don't say that as a fault of his but you know, he was human like everybody else. So at some point in time, he decided that the people were not going to listen. So he did what he considered to be the appropriate thing at the time, but Allah subhanaw taala did not like that. And then different things happen and units or units or a ceram was put through a test himself. And then of course he he passed that test and less martela forgave him. And there that is

00:09:39--> 00:09:52

how we have this drive which in these days especially was make a lot of that which is Lyla. highlanda subhanak in the economy nasai mean, Robbie for Hamada, rhyming we asking for this. So two things

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

complete certainty and perseverance in conveying the message and not taking

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

Making a reward and not taking compensation, not charging a fee, in order to give the hour or in order to teach the religion,

00:10:10--> 00:10:19

especially the book of philosophy hands on. And when I say religion, I don't mean the, you know, muscle of fake and this and that. And the lab let people take money if they want to take money, but I'm saying definitely.

00:10:20--> 00:11:04

Now, second second aspect of this, what is also clear is from the reaction of the people who received this message, and those who accepted the message Alhamdulillah they became Muslim, in the time of whichever number it was, but the people who oppose the NBN their opposition also was based on two principles. One was, they refuse to believe that the Navy was in a business. And now we don't accept that despite all proofs, you might say, Well, you know, if somebody just claims as I am, and I am unhappy, why should I believe and of course, you should not believe you should have ways of judging. You must see from the life of the TV, whether this person can be an A B and in the life of

00:11:04--> 00:11:45

an Amazon seller. There are several cases, several instances of people who came like Abdullah bin salam, ala, for example, one of the greatest Jewish rabbis of the time from the bottom of the Yeah, who came up with certain questions, specific questions, because he was checking to see whether this man is really unhappy or whether this man is an imposter, who's claiming to be enemy. And then of course, his his questions were answered and he was completely satisfied. And he was the way of expressing that satisfaction. He became Muslim. He didn't simply say intellectual Yeah, you're it of course, you are gonna be or anathoth No, he accepted Islam. And this is the the beauty and this is

00:11:45--> 00:12:34

the integrity of the man, which is clear that in this particular case, and similarly, there were other has admin sabotage, Alana, for example, he came originally with the intention, he was a great poet, he was one of the greatest poets of the, of the Arabs, and he was an absolute master of the language of Arabic because because of poetry and poetry is the is the final test of mastery of any language. Because in poetry, the poet is expressing his expressing concepts and expressing thoughts and expressing feelings. And he's doing that in as compact and precise and as succinct manner as possible, without going into details, right, but, but that one line conveys everything I will for

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

for the older listeners.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

Let me let me tell you a true story.

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

In India, I come from the States, which used to be a country by itself called Hyderabad.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

And it was a Muslim country.

00:12:52--> 00:13:09

It was a Muslim country, but there was no it was not a theocratic state, it was there was no discrimination against anybody else. The king was, was the exam, he's got an exam. And he had both the Hindu and Muslim nobles and administers as well as over there.

00:13:10--> 00:13:58

To make a long story short, Hyderabad was annexed and Hyderabad states ceased to be. And obviously, there was a complete change of regime, you know, different people who were prominent before they became, you know, they had no prominence later, and those people who were, were nothing before became very prominent. Now one of the famous poets of Hyderabad, he expressed that in this very simple line of poetry, I'm talking about the mastery of language, which is clear from which for mastery of language, of which poetry is the is the touchstone, because nobody knows a language better than a poet who can who can express beautiful poetry.

00:13:59--> 00:14:44

He said, classic, I say I say when I say whoa, gay is a is a cache cache. Now this is almost impossible to translate into English, we're not even going to attempt it. But those of you who do think about this guy say, Casey smsa hogi smsa Casey, Casey hoga. Now he's experiencing this, that people who are nothing became great people and people who are great people became nothing. Now this is as close to the translation as I can get. But you still don't get the the beauty of the language itself unless you understand this in the language. Now has that been sabbat Raja lon, who was a great poet.

00:14:45--> 00:14:50

So when as I once had been savitha, he was out somewhere when he came to Makkah.

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

They told him they said do not listen to Mohammed sallallahu Sallam when he is reciting the Koran which

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

She claims is the is the word of God. Don't listen to him because if you listen to him your your your your mind will change the assignment savate rather larrivee thought to himself that what is it that Mohammed Salah Salaam can tell me about and which language can he talk to me that he will change his mind? He changed my mind because I mean, I am the master of the language, right? There's nothing that he can say, which is going to change my mind unless there is something you know, substantial in it. So he said, I don't have to worry about it. And he listened to a soul as a solemn reciting Koran. And when he listened to him, Masami Sabbath said, this is not the Kalam of any human

00:15:44--> 00:16:34

being. He said, no human being can say what this cannot say. No, who's saying that the experts he knows. Similarly, if you see the story of Musa alayhis salam, you will find that the people who first came to Islam, who first accepted Musa Rama who, the magicians why because the modules are the the miracle given to Moses ROM was a miracle, which was to count the the great magic. That was the culture of Egypt. Egypt had this very, very powerful magician, I'm not talking about people who are doing card tricks. These were people who really had he did they did this they you know, they they twisted your mind. And they had all kinds of stuff, which was almost look almost supernatural in

00:16:34--> 00:17:04

terms of its power, but muzzle is when they saw musallam throwing his stick on the ground. And that stick turned into a snake. They knew that this is not magic. They knew because and they said how do you know it's not magic? Because I we are the biggest magicians in the world. If we don't know magic, nobody knows magic. We know what magic is. And this is not magic. And they immediately they said we believe in the rub of Messiah and how?

00:17:05--> 00:17:20

Because as experts, they recognize what it was. So Hassan means a bit and other law. No, he said I am the greatest expert in the language. And I am saying that this is not the word of a human being. Right? So we find that the

00:17:23--> 00:18:09

the opposition that came to the MBA, one of the big reasons was the ego of the person, human ego. People said Oh no, we don't accept you or you are a man like us. Why should we accept and then even though they were presented with proof after proof, like it happened in the case of Islam, just as Hassan bin Sabbath was listening had listened to the Quran. Abu Jamal also listened to the Quran. Abu lahab also listened to the Quran. But the Quran did not change their hearts because their arts were corrupted in the first place. hasn't been sabotaged. Elena's heart was not corrupted. He was he his heart was pure. So when he saw something, he immediately accepted it even though he didn't go

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

there to accept that he didn't. He was not looking for an IV or anything like this. Like,

00:18:15--> 00:18:57

for example, he came there looking for an IV. How does that mean time it was not doing that he has happened to be there. And his original approach was not for accepting. He just said no, I want to test I want to see right after having said I didn't go to accept Islam. He said no, I here is a man who's come to Medina, everybody's saying he's gonna be I am the expert. I am the greatest scholar of the Jews. I have knowledge of the books of Allah. And I'm going to test and see is this man truthful or not? And when he found is truthful, is there a shadow Laila Hello, wah, wah shadow Nava, Hamada Rasulullah. So, there is a difference. So people have opposed for the same reasons, which is the

00:18:57--> 00:19:44

main reason is the reason of the ego. And the second reason is the reason of the knifes is the reason of desire, I don't want to change my lifestyle. I am used to living in a certain way. I don't want to change that. And the same thing happened with our in our lab and so on in MK if you look at the life of Mr. seller, here, Islam came with justice. Islam came by saying no slavery, no oppressing slaves, no oppressing women, women have rights. You can't buy and sell them like cattle, you cannot kill them. They will inherit property. They will have a say in who they marry and don't marry and their say is the final say. Even the father cannot overrule the daughter if she says she

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

does not want to marry somebody the father cannot force simply marry her to somebody else. This is very, very clear stuff. So Islam came with these rules. And Islam says pay the laborer pay the worker before his sweat dries

00:20:01--> 00:20:47

equal pay for equal work, there is no differential pay based on gender. men get more money, women get less money in Islam. This was established 1400 years ago. And this principle is not even established as I speak in America or in Europe, where people like to talk a great deal about the emancipation of women and the freedom of women, pay them equal money first, whether they have a piece of cloth on their head or not, doesn't matter, pay them equal money. First, you take their labor, you take their work, and you pay them less money, you will answer to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Islam said no, equal work, equal pay, right? Equals equal. justice means equality, equal

00:20:47--> 00:21:28

duties, equal responsibilities, and equal reward, the woman does not get a get less of a reward for what she does, compared to the man, they both get equal reward, they are equal in every respect. This was what Islam came with. And so when people whose knifes whose desires went against this, and this always there's a Nononono, this is too complicated. And narakasura is too difficult. I have to change my lifestyle. I am used to a certain lifestyle, I can't change that, I will not change that. So ego comes into it, and desire comes into it. And that's exactly what happened in the case of no ra setup. So in Serato, hold Allah subhanaw taala describes this.

00:21:30--> 00:22:02

As at the Jeeves of the disbelievers among these people, they said, we see you but a man like ourselves, there's nothing special about you, you are a man like we like we are, nor do we see any who follow you, but the meanest among us, and they too followed you without thinking. Now, this is the other trap of shaitan. The same thing happened with a visa racetam also, when I was Sofia was questioned by

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

by heraclius in,

00:22:07--> 00:22:58

in Syria in Damascus, and heraclius said, Tell me who are the followers of this number of years. I was there they are the they are slaves and they are women and they are the weakest and the meanest amongst us. The Iraqi as was a intelligent manner. heraclius was a good practicing Christian, and he was knowledgeable about his own religion. So heraclius when he heard this statement, his reaction was very different. Now Sophia, Ilana was at that time, he was not a Muslim. He was very surprised to hear heraclius his response to this statement, Abu sufian said this to heraclius in order to turn heraclius away from Mohammed Salah Salem, where he thought he iraklis would say our case, then, you

00:22:58--> 00:23:18

know, who cares about somebody who's followed only by the meanest and weakest of society hierarchy, I said the opposite. Heraclitus said this is a sign that he is a messenger of Allah, because even in the case of Jesus, even in the case of his or his Salah, only the week of society followed him, the leaders of society did not follow him.

00:23:20--> 00:23:20

So this is a

00:23:21--> 00:23:35

this is another trap, which is my ego. So I will not follow because I don't care about you know what? You look like a man to me, why should I listen to you? Second one is

00:23:37--> 00:24:27

you I have my own desires, I don't want to change my lifestyle, I don't want to change what I do. I don't want to change my society. Because all the way the society is now arranged, it all helps me so I don't want to change that. And third thing is that, who are your followers, they are the weakest and so on and so forth. If I become your follower, then I am part of that group. And this is against my ego You know, I'm, I'm I'm a noble person, I am a person with with a lot of pride and arrogance. And how can I treat myself equal to somebody who's really my server and who's my slave, and who is in my society, I look down upon these people low caste, how can I am a high caste person? How can I

00:24:27--> 00:24:35

equate myself with them? So these are again, this is another aspect of ego. So the they said, the chiefs of the

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

disbelievers among his people. They said, We see you but a man like ourselves, nor do we see any following you but the meanest among us, and they to follow you without thinking. Now this is a slander that people, arrogant people put on others. They say, Well, you know what, they have no brain

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

Right We are the intelligent people. We are the I Am the professor, I am a doctor, I am a PhD. I have written so many books, right? I am the one with the with the intelligence. Who is this fool? I mean, you know he's a tilava he's a small shopkeeper or he's a rickshaw puller, or, you know, he's an auto rickshaw driver or whatever he is, you know, he's a sweeper street sweeper. What intelligence does he have? And he's dumb. He's stupid. You go to school did you go to which University did you go to? I graduated from Howard from MIT from God's Word from Cambridge. This will What does he know? I mean, he knows nothing right? Language language.

00:25:45--> 00:26:30

We have this chauvinism as well. He can't even speak English, right? He speaks some local vernacular, you use this term, go look up the logo, look up the meaning of vernacular we say to ourselves, this is the colonial stamp on our conscience and on our own persona, we d base and demean our own culture, right? Where we were to go look up the meaning of the word vernacular, which always speaks of vernacular, right, which is your mother tongue, you, you discard it, and you think it is worthless. And English has this great superior status. So he doesn't even speak English. What must I like all of this is in the mind. All of these are signs of arrogance, nothing else. Just because a

00:26:30--> 00:27:15

person does not go didn't go to school doesn't mean that that person is not wise. One of the people for whom I have the greatest respect, and who are two actually, two people, one man one woman, for who I have the greatest respect, and who I consider to be among the wisest and the most mature people in that I have encountered. One is my driver in India, called Mustafa, who is the age of my son literally Missouri for his in his in his in his 30s. And he never went to school. I don't know how that happened because he was born and lived in Hyderabad. And there's no shortage of Hyderabad. He never went to school. Yet he is one of the wisest people I know, one of the most mature people I

00:27:15--> 00:27:53

know. I have a huge respect for him. The other one is our housekeeper in Hyderabad. Again, a woman of amazing talent, my wife and I have huge respect for both of these people. That lady has so much of subber so much of wisdom, so much of fortitude, sort of courage. It's she's an inspiration. Right. And she also cooks cooks brilliantly, she's a fabulous cook. And just saying that just because and I am the light in my life, I have seen many people like this. In my plantation days, I've seen so many people. In my Ghana days, I've seen so many people, people who never saw the inside of a school in their lives. And I am convinced that going to school actually makes you stupid

00:27:53--> 00:28:28

doesn't make you it doesn't make you smart or necessarily right. So I don't want all the kids to run away and say showers are going to school next. You usually does, right. But I mean, if you're if you if you if you learn, good, if you get good teachers have to lie. That doesn't happen. But the point I'm making is that all of these kinds of statements that the Mainers follow them, they have no brace they follow without thinking, these are all statements of arrogance. And these are things which people have done with the ability mussalam always the same thing, how the Gambia

00:28:30--> 00:28:43

presented Islam and their reasons for presenting Islam did not change. And people's reasons for opposing Islam also did not change that may Allah protect us. Now, what can we learn from this?

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

Today we do not we do not have ambia but we have rasuna surah salams teachings with us number one.

00:28:52--> 00:28:59

So what is our attitude towards the Quran and towards the Hadees of our soldiers and

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

that will show whether we are with the true followers of the Gambia or whether we are with these people who oppose the idea. I'll come to that in more detail inshallah.

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

Let's continue

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

these

00:29:18--> 00:29:33

continue with this is first and so they said that, the meanest among us, follow you and dare to follow you without thinking and we do not see in you any merit above us. In fact, we think you are liars.

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

Not in the hotel. So standard,

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

oppose, because of ego oppose because of your own knifes because of your own desires oppose because you don't like their followers and you consider yourself to be superior to those followers. So you are arrogant. And then you imagine that those followers are all stupid and they are false.

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

Because they have no brains, they have no intelligence, the education and final stamp of your own arrogance and ignorance is usaver. You are liars, you are liars, your message is worthless. So we reject you must know Ali Salam. On the other hand, his approach is also the same as the approach of the other ambia, which is

00:30:29--> 00:30:36

very important to understand is he doesn't engage with these people on their terms.

00:30:37--> 00:30:41

problem with this, the problem with us a lot of us

00:30:42--> 00:31:11

is we forget a basic principle. And the basic principle is the one who controls the language controls the debates, the one who controls the language controls the debate. Now, if you engage with people who are making false accusations, then you get involved in that debate, which you cannot win, because the people making the false allegations, the false

00:31:13--> 00:31:57

the false accusations, they know that they are doing that they know those are false. And they know that if they accept you that they have to own up to the fact that they are liars, and that they are never going to do so it just wastes your time it gets you involved in some nonsense. On the other hand, if you stick through the truth and if you stick to your message, then you are really getting somewhere so all the mBiA mussalam they stuck to their message you are going to see the same thing happening in the life of your Amazon seller when we come there inshallah, where around. His whole argument is Mr. Abu Dhabi, who is

00:31:59--> 00:31:59

right.

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

What is Busan, Islam response, rubbish Raja to a lot of the Omar Marina Houma. enquanto mcweeny theories are about the heavens and the earth and whatever is in between them, if you accept and if you are obedient.

00:32:16--> 00:32:25

Now Pharaoh's funeral does not answer that. His next response is he tells the people do you see this man?

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

He is much known he is is he's mad.

00:32:31--> 00:32:45

Now Musa Hassan doesn't get engaged with that. He doesn't say no, I'm not mad. Define madness for me. What is mad? What is your proof? You are mad? No, no, no. Musa Islam continues with the his dollar.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

He's a rebel alameen.

00:32:51--> 00:33:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is your and he is Rob of your pair of forefathers, and he is rub off everyone.

00:33:01--> 00:33:45

So also more or less alive. He says he doesn't engage with these people. He doesn't say, you know, don't look down upon the people with me. You are the people who are arrogant. What proof do you have that these people are stupid? He's not saying any he does not he is not he does not engage with them. Because when we engage with people who are accusing us, we are subjecting ourselves to their language. And if we get involved in their language, then they will win because the one who owns the language or the debate, no one is haram starches says he is on his own narrative. I have my own language, I will not speak to you in your language. I will speak to you in my language. And by

00:33:45--> 00:34:14

language, I don't mean in terms of English and Arabic, Urdu and so on. I mean, in terms of the terminology, so Noah is what I'm saying. He said, All my people tell me if I have a clear proof from my Rob gelato and a mercy which has which is Prophethood has come to me from him. But that mercy has been obscured from your site. Shall we compel you to accept Islam when you have a strong hatred for it?

00:34:15--> 00:34:59

And oh by people? I asked off, you know, well, the no reward I mentioned this already two years. The here's the proof for those who want the proof. He said why people? I do not ask any wealth. I don't ask any reward. I don't ask any compensation for me for doing this work. My reward is from none but Allah. I am not going to drive away those who have believed, surely they are going to meet their rub. But I see that you are people who are ignorant, and all my people who will help me against Allah. If I drive them away. Will you not give a thought to this now

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

Northern Islam is saying here

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

that

00:35:04--> 00:35:40

I'm not forcing you, I am presenting Islam to you. And I am trying to do that to the best of my ability. I am not forcing you to believe this or that. And you seem to have a strong hatred for this. So think about why do you have this hatred As for my companions as for the people with me, I will not drive them away. I will not send them away just because you happen to look down upon them. Right? We know from the life of wizards Allah also the author of didn't drive anybody away. But we know the story of

00:35:41--> 00:35:42

Abdullah in Moscow.

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

Who, who has a blind Sorry, I think about disease a blind man. He came into the masjid when Rosaura Salam was talking to some of the, you know, important people of the horizon and so on.

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

And he obviously he doesn't know that he's, he's blind, he can't see. So he just came into the masjid. Maybe he had a stick in his hand. And he was, you know, he walked into the masjid. And he didn't realize what was happening as soon as and he started asking some question. So rassada salaam just turned around and looked at him. He didn't. He didn't. You know, he didn't reprimand him. He didn't say anything. He just looked at him and he frowned when he looked at him. Now imagine

00:36:38--> 00:36:48

Abdullah nakoma is blind. So did he see a solar saucer frowning? dumb question. Obviously you could have seen him frowning because he was blind.

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

But what did Allah subhanaw taala do?

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

about Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran, Allah says Allah Allah, Allah.

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

Allah subhanaw taala said that he found when the blind man came, right. Now, this is also one of the many proofs for those who need the proof of this or that that have the truthfulness of the integrity and of the reward the result of a solar system, which is that Nebuchadnezzar This is came for him. Allah subhanho wa Taala was drawing his attention. I don't like to use the word reprimand because that is not a word of other for the NaVi la sala. But Allah subhanaw taala was correcting him was

00:37:39--> 00:38:03

was drawing his attention to his action. And Allah said that you frowned at the blind man, but maybe the blind man was more open to your admiration to your message, then these wealthy people who are who you are talking to. So Allah is you know, is doing Disturbia. Now, if prasada had not mentioned this, if nobody would have known

00:38:05--> 00:38:33

because I was actually critical of himself, yet rasulillah salams integrity and truthfulness was such that any way he he received, he communicated to the people because the boy came for that reason. And so therefore, today we decide this, this is and Hamdulillah, we recited in Salah Allah subhanaw taala has glorified this behavior of absorption of hamdulillah. But my point is that this correction that came so here

00:38:35--> 00:38:53

no one is saying that just because you don't like this people, I'm not going to send them away. I'm sorry about that. These are people who have accepted Allah subhanho wa Taala. I'm not going to send them away. And then he says that no one is allowed says I do not seek any reward from you.

00:38:55--> 00:39:40

No, he's into them. Just think about this, I am engaged in this in this work day and night, right? I am a human being like you, I have family I have this that I have my own needs, but I am and I am saying this to you for your own benefit. Because if you accept this message, you will go to general inshallah, why am I doing that? Right? I am doing that because I love Allah because this is the message that I have been given. And you don't seem to understand that. He says no problem. I will not change my method or my vow, and I will not change what I'm doing. Because I'm doing it for the pleasure of the unknown. My reward is from Allah. I don't ask you for a reward. And I will not send

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

away the people who are with me, just because you don't like them, I will not remove them to allow you in because then I would be speaking your language the language of prejudice, the language of discrimination, the language of superiority, the language of supremacy on the basis of caste

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

or creed or culture or religion or or race, I will not do that, I will treat you and them equally because they are equal and all of us are equal in the sight of

00:40:13--> 00:40:22

a brother or sister This is the lesson that we learned from Noah syrup. In this lesson, one is of course, his continuing

00:40:23--> 00:40:34

persistence and his and his you know steadfastness in his in his tower, we understand that how people

00:40:35--> 00:41:24

resist the tower for the reasons of their own ego, their own knifes and their own desires and so on. And because of their arrogance, because of their feelings of supremacy, and and superiority over other people, and we see the same things happening today in our own culture with respect to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and his message and with respect to those who come to warn us of those who come to try to advise us to follow Islam, we treat them with disrespect and disdain, because it is because of our own ego and so on which comes into the picture. I remind you of myself, let us take warning from this, let us ensure that we treat this Dean with the respect that it deserves. Let

00:41:24--> 00:41:28

us learn from the lives of the mBiA mussalam. So that we can

00:41:29--> 00:42:01

we can do two things one is we can follow them to the best of our ability and to that we stay warned about those who didn't follow them. And we know the reason they didn't follow them and we don't follow a fall into the same trap. ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you and never to be displeased and to accept you're coming to these classes. We ask a lot smarter make all these classes. It means a bit higher and Baraka for us was Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was ibH main parameter.
