similar analogy but haven't really learned how to build Alameen
wa salatu salam ala should have been a medieval Mussolini Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah it you only use so seldom does Lehmann cathedral cathedral. My brothers sisters, we are on our lesson from this era of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
looking at the time before he is allowed, he seldom went to Madina Munawwara himself
now after the
byton, an ESA
with the people of Medina
yesterday really that was the name of the town.
So as a result, I'm sent some you know, my brother LAN who to go and teach Islam to the people of Medina. Now Musa mail Mayra Duran, who was an amazing human being, and his story is famous. He was from a very wealthy and powerful family in Makkah from the Koresh and his mother, literally daughter on it. So she, she lavished every luxury and wealth on him. Most of nowhere was like a fashion icon in in Makkah, people watch what he wore. They said that he was very fond of perfume. So if he passed in a down a street or down a lane, and you went by on that road, on that lane, after some time, you were still spelled the pace perfume wafting on the breeze
as he was he was very also very handsome. He had a beautiful voice. He had an amazingly powerful personality. So he was, you know, like he was an icon to the people on Bucha.
Most of them were accepted Islam.
And when he accepted Islam, everything is always changed. And he was at that time, maybe what 17 or something like that 1617 years old, a young young guy.
His mother tried to persuade him to leave Islam. And when he refused, she had him locked up in prison, and
that went on for some time. But he refused to leave Islam. And his mother then told him and she thought to herself that you know, all of this, you know, games he's playing because he has literally money to burn. So I'm going to shut up all the funds and then see, see how much he loves his love and what he does. So she said to him that if you do not leave Islam, that I am going to throw your mouse and you will lose everything you have
some bossa nova Ron who is
you do whatever you like to do, but I will not leave Islam.
His mother literally did that. She chucked him out of the house. And as he was leaving, she said not leave your clothes because even the clothes you're wearing, I paid for them. So take off your clothes. She let him go with just a winding sheet like a loogie around his waist That's it.
Nothing else completely and totally deprived of his wealth.
Now Musa Nevada was one of the greatest students also was a Salem he was a beautiful reset of the Quran. He had memorized all the Quran which had been revealed until that time. So he went to rasa salah. And so Allah is Allah Salam, Santa Musa, where are the Allahu to Medina as his ambassador.
He was the personal representative of Rasulullah, Salah.
he used to lead Salah because the hours and hundreds who had those of the Muslims of the chosen candidate
who had accepted accepted Islam.
There still was so much enmity between them that they will not pray behind an imam providers from either type. So if there was an house Imam, I will see Imam the 100 would not pray and the Hazaragi imam in the house would not pray behind it. So Musa Alana became the Imam of both of them. Now one day Musa
Alana was with us, Ben Zara
who was his host in Medina. And they went to let you do Gustin they went to meet some Muslims.
They went and as I was rara was was his guide and he was his horse. So he took him there he took him to a place to a garden,
which was in the territory of a house
as somebody said to him that this is the gardener of savvy Mart, who is the Chief us. And he says, sadly, Mark is a great warrior. He's a great chief, he's so powerful, that if he accepts Islam, the entire tribe of ours will accept Islam. So, I'm taking you there. So they went there, and they were sitting in this garden, you know, they had this,
these have the same in regards to Jehovah, which is, there will be a platform built around a tree.
So people would sit around on this platform in the shade of the tree. And you know, in the evening, people would sit there and they would talk about the day and so on and drink tea and whatnot. So similar kind of thing, there was this platform. So
most of them are aware of that as a means a lot of the lateral and then of course, some other people gathered so there were some people there and so on, and most of them were was talking to them.
Now while this was happening, sadly, mod, and
we'll say the been has been coded. Now later on said before, they became one of the greatest and most durable recitals of the Quran.
And sadly, what became one of the biggest of the companions, the Resource Center anyway, so at that time, both of these were not Muslim. So sad been why there was a bill. They were standing there. And they were seeing what was happening. They saw this. They saw a subgenre, along with the stranger. from Makkah, they knew that the stranger was here, let's change it when
they come there, they sit there and you know, some other people gather and so on. So, so fattening out of the land, we said to say
it's a go and tell those people to stop misguiding the weak minded among us.
So tell them to leave. Tell them to leave, tell them.
He said I would have done it myself. But as I've been Zahra is my relative so he was his
was his cousin. Right? He was his son of his collar, mother's mother's system. So is that I don't want to argue with him. So did you go and you say that I have said that they should go and he should not be here.
So you won't do it. Now Jose, the hotel took his beer or these people in in those days, everyone was personal arms were part of your dress. So you had a sword you had a spear or some such thing with you. So set me up for that took a spear spear and the they went towards muscle and he went towards Musa beware, as of
now some things that are out there, Lonnie saw him coming. And he said to Mazovia May, he is a leader of the people. So be sincere with him. If he accepts Islam, his people will also accept because these were these were all, you know, tribal
leaders, they're the kind of power they had is impossible for us today to imagine.
Was able that
came there. And
as soon as you give him that, he said he threatened them. He said, Get out of here. You have no business being here and so on. So one of the people in that Halaqa he started arguing with him, but also be aware that he stopped him. And he said to
he said why don't you sit down and listen to what I have to say.
If you'd like it, you accept it. If you don't like it, you can reject it. And then I will go he said I've come all this way.
So I mean, what can it help you?
Just to listen to me for a few minutes. So no further agree. Some reason he put his beard you know stabbed his beard in the ground etc.
and Musa Jimenez Omar or the Alon who started reciting Quran
yesterday just beside Alright, so this is what Mohammed Salah Salem has brought. This is what Islam is the worship of will alone and Mr. Hassan Salam is the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala the last and final of them and this is what he brought in he recited Quran.
Now, as I've been rara said, That was a beautiful day did not say a single word.
But he said from his face, I could see Islam and telling his heart.
And when Musa Bimini Huayra Delarue finished his recitation, will say the holidays simply said, How does one enter your religion? What do I have to do to enter your religion?
was out of nowhere is it go and wash, take a bath
and come and pray and then
Do your religion and there are really.
So he did that he went, he took a bath and so on he came, he prayed.
And that is
I am now going to send you a man. And if he entered your religion, all the people will follow.
So by that, by that, by that he meant sad the math.
So, he then went to sad, meanwhile, of the alarm, that time he was not a Muslim. So, we went to Serbian while later on sad, meanwhile, said that when I saw him coming back to me,
I knew that something had changed in him. This was a man coming to us with a different phrase with a different face from that, which he left us with.
So, but to save or save the holiday event to Sabine Mar.
And he wanted he did a little rules, the little, you know, little bit of deception.
Because if you told him go and listen to that, but he wouldn't do that. So he said to him, Bernhardt is want to kill a sub Bindra because he's your cousin.
So sad, meanwhile, got angry, picked up a spear and he angrily went to the meeting to defend his cousin.
But when he realized when he realized that he realized that there's nobody attacking, attacking his cousin, he realized that this story was not true. And he said rather bizarre Why are you doing this to me? He said, Why are you doing this to me? You are taking advantage of our relationship. You and your wife, my mother's sisters, are you my cousin? And because of that you're taking advantage of
Musa Miriam and said to him the same thing which you said to
say no, then he said to him, why don't you listen to me? Please sit Listen to me. And if you like what I have to say you can accept it otherwise you're feared you're free to reject it and then I believe that the models are okay, what can you tell me? You know, what can what difference does it make the mountain easier from a long wheel
And as the middle of the Rana Vilano says, that Musa was a must have been aware of the alarm and started reciting Quran.
And he said, When he finished, I could see from his face that sad been wired for the Lord who wanted to enter Islam. He said it's best it's
so sad been wired,
accepted Islam. Now, this I've been wiped out. See how he gives though and again, before you get inspired to do it this way. Remember, this works only if you have that kind of clout if you have that kind of reputation and power with the people.
So don't try it unless you have that. So I've been wired, accepted Islam, then he went to his be we call all the people. And then he said to them, what do you think of me? What's your opinion of me?
They said, We love you, you are the wisest among us, you are our leader.
sysadmin was to them. If that is the case, then I will not speak to any one of you unless you accept Islam.
He said Don't talk to me and I will not talk to you unless you accept Islam.
The narrator of the hadith of this story says that by that evening, every house in Borno as hell was Muslim and brainwashed was the most important branch of our house. And by the time of the following hedge there was not a single house among the Arabs in Medina, we did not have a Muslim minutes.
More than 70 Develop previous year only 20 People give this year more than 70 men and two women.
Were in the group going from Medina for Hajj. Al Bara been my role was the leader of the Muslims and Gavin Malik is the new he said, My Uncle Bobby Morrow came to us and he said I have an idea and I want your opinion. He said I don't feel comfortable turning my back to this building in prayer. So I want your opinion.
Building meaning the color.
So they said to him that as well as an embrace praise towards Jerusalem, and much of the Luxa so let us not contradict him let's, you know, do our own thing. And we're having Morrow he said I will pray towards the cover.
Now, so they prayed, he prayed towards the cover. Some people prayed with him and some people continue to pray towards by some of this, which was how I used to pray in those days.
Now when they reached back Carl Barbie Morrow said to his nephew, Gabby Malik, he said let us go to the Sunnah so seldom and ask
Give me what I was doing was right or wrong. I am ma'am disturbed by your disapproval he said you don't like what I'm doing. I don't like that. So let's go check that also said to an ombudsman of the Muttalib our Father, do you know these two men and Abbas introducer he said as soon as I said I'm this is the guy Ben Malik and this is Uncle Bobby Morrow. As soon as you said Do you mean the word car because God was a pilot for the
cabin man he said I even swear by Allah I will never forget that statement for all of my life you to be recognized for what you do. And that also by somebody like Rasul Allah so salaam beyond whom there is no one that said that's an honor, it's an honor beyond description, in honor beyond description
Hamdulillah I have this
have this beautiful feeling and memories of being recognized in different places, for my lectures for my books and so on by people and it's a wonderful feeling that somebody read your stuff, somebody listened to you. Somebody recognizes you. Imagine that person recognizing is Rasul Allah. I mean, how must have been Malika felt? So he said, I swear by Allah, I will never forget that statement for all of my life. Allah Basma Delano said yes. And I'll Bara told him about his prayer.
So the missiles that have asked him, Is this the word? Allah said, yes. So Al Bara, told him about the boy about his prayer. He said, I was praying in the direction of the Kaaba and asked him for his opinion. That's what I said, But you already had a hibler and you should have kept to it. What was the need to change it? So Alba changes directional prayer back to Jerusalem. Gaby Malaga Rana said we left for Hajj with the agreement that we will meet at Aqaba. In the Yamata chakra Aloka was the mountain pass. They were meeting in secret, they decided that they will keep it a secret and none of the non Muslims in our group knew about it except I will Jabba.
So we said to him, they said to Abuja, however, he said, You are one of our leaders, we want you to give up your practices or you will become the fuel of the Hellfire. So he accepted Islam. And he came with us to the meeting this Gabi Malik Abdullah was speaking.
So he said in the night, we went in ones and twos because we didn't want the the kurage to know what is going on, until we all gathered in Aqaba. And this was 70 men and two, when we were all there, as soon as I was in a game and with him game on a bus, and the bus didn't have the Motorola vellano was the only non Muslim in the meeting. And some of them have a Syrian have said that he had actually accepted Islam but he had not declared it voila. So he spoke first. He said, You know the position that Mohammed Salah Salem has with us and he said you know the position that he has with us, he has our protection and he's safe in his town. He now wants to join you.
If you are sincere in your promise to protect him and support him, then it is up to you to stand by your promise. If you intend to take him and abandon him and give him up to his enemies then leave him No, no take him with you. So about one of the Motorola Lana was take time to get a firm commitment from the people of Medina.
Now when Why was Allah was doing this, because when I will tell he passed away on a bus with Ilan who was also an uncle from his house alum and he gave him his prediction. So as soon as I sent him was under the protection of alternative and when he passed away he alibis because it literally are the law who gave him gave him his prediction. So he was one of the leaders of the battleship. And so he wanted to make sure that
their son his navy was well protected.
These people from Medina who we shall call on Sarika that that was the name that they
earned and it was given to them. And that's the honor that was given to them by aligning themselves.
They said the islands that said we have heard what Allah said it's an order so the Lazarus Allah, please speak to us.
And please ask us and tell us what you want from us. And take whatever you want from us for yourself and your
soul as a result of their lives length. Just listen to these words and put yourself and I put myself in that place and say what would we have done if he had been there?
Sometimes I really
you know, I'm not sometimes all the time I am very happy that I was born when I was born in the family that I was born and that I did not have to actually make any of these choices. It's easy to feel that oh by Salah with these people their position on somebody remember, they made those choices and they paid for those choices in many cases with their
lives. The same was
one of the wealthiest of the of the college. He lost everything because he chose Islam
and he never got that wealth back. He never got that wealth back.
He remained in Medina and in the Battle of our HUD, he was killed. He will Shaheed and when he was Shaheed in the battle Awad
under Salah Salem. After the battle was over, they were finding the bodies Musa salaam saw his body he wept.
And Musa was a tall man, they did not have a glove to make a coffin for him. And when the cloth they wound and they try to cover his body, if they covered the head, the feet were would be exposed and they covered the feet they had to be exposed. So rasuna said, cover the head and put some leaves on the feet. This was also beware.
So imagine this is the kind of Phaedrus Abba had, he made a choice he gave up everything, and he did not see victory in his life.
He died in the battle.
But why is one alive? Today one of the people to whom we owe our Islam is this Muslim there might not be
so easy to talk about salah Jharia is that the difficult when we have to make the choices I am for myself, I'm very happy Allah did not put me in a situation where I had to make any of these choices Allah gave it all to me.
To return to our story, they asked for asylum they said Jarocin allah sallallahu sallam, tell us what you want from us.
And take it and take from us what you want to need for your for your home. And you're the
last one, as I said, I've said I asked you to pledge that you will defend me like you defend your own families, you will women and children.
You must bless to hear and obey
in good times, and bad times in times of action and no action. And you must bless to give when I asked you to give money time, whatever you must pledge to give in times of ease and hardship.
And he was pledged to advocate good and forbid evil, Amma will Morrow and ironmonger. And you must speak out for Allah subhanho wa Taala and not fear, any blame for speaking for Allah.
And you must help and defend me if I come to you, in the same way that you help and defend your wives and children.
Right, so this is the
this is the pledge
that we saw was
mentioned to the answer. And then we repeat the pledge to hear it away somewhere in our data we hear we will be in terms of actual interaction, no matter what good times bad times, to give in times of ease and hardship, to advocate good and forbid evil.
To speak out for Allah and not fear any blame for speaking out for Allah
to help and defend the Surah Surah Salah
to QA to if he came to them for help.
I'll be allowing Albert Robin maruf who was the leader he stood up? And he said yeah.
I swear it we are warriors from father to son for many generations.
I will hate them stood up and he said yes Allah we have some ties to some people and we are afraid that if Allah gives you victory, then you may leave us and return to your people.
As soon as Allah syrup said, I am of you and you are of Me. I will battle those I will fight those who fight against you. And I will be at peace with those who are at peace with you. As admins, Aurora Delano he stood up and he said slowly Hold on. We only came here because we know that he is the messenger of Allah.
But now if we take him with us, we will be boxed in with swords all around us. So if you have any fear in your hearts, leave him now. That is better for you. So they pushed him away and then they said we are ready to support him and will and we will be with him to the end.
Then they said to him,
and this is the punch line. Then they said to him, yes what Allah? What will you give us? If we support you with our lives and our wealth?
What will you give us if we support you with our life and our will?
He said only one word. He said Jana
the response of the answer was What a bargain. He said what a wonderful deal. What a profitable deal.
here is asking for the lives and wealth in this world and he's promising them something that they cannot feed.
This is the essence of Mr. Miller. Hi my brothers and sisters I remind my children as well
is the essence of human
The college heard about this meeting and they went to Lowe's and hundreds and they said we heard that you have met Mohamed Salah Salem and offered
him protection and we want to take him and you want to take him with you.
He said you are the last people in the world who we want to fight. So tell us is to
the non Muslims about them they refuted this and they said we did not meet meet mama Salazar.
And obviously they were speaking the truth because they did not meet him Allah salah
the Muslims remained silent and they said nothing.
cob in Malaga said we understood our religion and knew our prayers even before us also Muslim came to us. And that was the contribution of
Musa we've nowhere of Allah.
The big lesson here is do not put off learning about your religion.
Avoid number two,
do the work of Islam, especially the work of Dawa, for Janna alone, don't take money for it. Number three, to understand that this Dean decision needs sacrifice. And really by sacrifice I mean investment it needs investment of our lives and our wealth into the propagation of the day.
For Jana, Jana is not cheap beer to buy, buy our wealth and our lives.
And remember that as I mentioned to you about masa, we've Nowhere are there.
Many people of that generation that did not see the victories, which came later.
Yet they were delighted to be the foundation of the building, which was built on them, the building of the of Islam and the dean Obama's.
The thing is that think about this, the reality is that the biggest the most magnificent building the most magnificent structure, the most magnificent Maji, the whatever
stands on a foundation.
And in that foundation, rocks,
if you look at the magnificent building, there are also rocks on the facing marble and granite and whatnot polished, which are decorated, we look at them, which is what I love beautiful it looks. That is also a rock. And the rock in the foundation is also not. But remember, if every rock wants to be only on the facing of the building, there will never be any building, which can stand.
The only way that that magnificent building will stand and remain strong is if some of the rocks in the world say that we are prepared to go into the foundation to be buried, never to be seen again. So that on our shoulders, the building can stand.
This is essential.
I'm not talking about here, physical buildings. I'm talking about Islam, especially I'm talking about any kind of endeavor of this kind unless people are willing to invest into the foundation without counting
how much investment as law as much as it takes,
what kind of investment whatever it takes, unless people are willing to do that. Nothing will happen.
A lot of
them. And this is what is happening. This is exactly what they did. Many of the first generation they died before the photo had died before the victories that we saw in the time of Google stadia for the landlords and
the Rashidun time.
Many of them passed away before that, yet without their contribution. Without their investment. There would be no Islam in the world. They are the people who established Islam and who spread Islam
appointed 12 leaders among the Tsar and they were called the knock
these are the people who are the like, like the pillars who are to report resources Salah who would give them instructions. So as salam said to them I was shown the Dar Al Hijrah
place where I'm supposed to be going to and it is a land with lots of palm trees between two rocky volcanic tracts. So does Allah Salam changed the name of your trip to El Medina
and it is called Al Madina, Munawwara the brilliant city, the city which is full of nor, which is Manawa because when the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came to Yathrib
the city became brilliant. And when myself I knew that when the Rasul Allah says Allah and the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem comes into our lives, into our hearts,
we will become brilliant, we will become one hour, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make our globe Manawa and full of light
of the presence of Rasulullah Selim in our lives by following his sunnah, and by trying to live our lives in a diva in emulation of his life was someone who had an awakening while early he was I mean, maybe I have to go
