Hola Hola rather a haven hamdulillah here behind me or salatu salam ala heterophylla Mia even more saline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman cathedral cathedra
Amato, my dear ancestors.
When I think about
Rasulullah, sallAllahu centimos, blessed life, and all the miracles that happened in his life,
there are people who have actually collected all his miracles together in one place, right, all the way from the splitting of the moon, and so on and so forth, all kinds of miracles.
But in my view,
the biggest miracle of Rasulullah sallallahu the Quran itself is one but the biggest miracle of Rasulullah Salem was the creation of the Ummah, was the creation of the Brotherhood of faith
that he was able to do in Medina.
If there was one single thing
the difference between success and failure for the mission of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was his success
in bringing together a completely disparate set of people
diverse, not in one way, but in multiple ways.
And who was steeped
in traditions, and in
ways of thinking, that reinforced their prejudices, that reinforced their mutual hatred for one another. That reinforced discrimination of all kinds.
He took this bunch of people
and converted them into people who loved one another, who respected one another. And who literally in many cases gave their lives for somebody who in the past
in the days of the what we call the Jamar jelly or the days of ignorance, they will not have looked at that person, they will not have touched that person.
And those person those people became their dearest and closest friends.
This is a incredible, amazing
miracle. I keep using the term miracle but to me it's not just a miracle but it is Allah subhanaw taala it's my will hijack Elisa Mara dollars, completion of the argument
in favor of the fact that it can be done.
So, if somebody today, looking at the world as we have it today, if somebody says that it is impossible to create mutual understanding, mutual respect, mutual love between white people and black people and brown people, between first world people in third world people, between Christians and Hindus and Muslims and and Sikhs and Jews and you never all the others, it is
if somebody says it is impossible to bring all of these together as one I would say that is a lie. That is wrong.
And if you need evidence of that if you need proof of that, go to the life of Muhammad Salah Salem and see how he did it.
So Rosa Rosa now brought the MaHA during himself included when they came to Medina
Rossano Surah Salam paired up of
one mohajir with one Ansari.
Again, as I mentioned yesterday,
heated that is usually translated as migration. But please understand this was not migration in any sense that we might think of these were not people who are going to Medina because they were looking for better jobs and in the hope of starting new businesses because Medina is a bigger economy and there is this and there is that, you know, the usual reasons today for example, in our modern time when I say today, I don't mean 2022 I mean for the last several decades.
Why people from so called Third World
Countries have migrated to so called first world countries to Europe and America primarily is for economic reasons. Right? The majority of them they came because
they live in these countries is more comfortable, they are safer. There are more opportunities, a bigger economy, they are able to
to do better than they would have done in their own home countries. So this is the main reason but this is not the reason why it also relies on a sentiment the Sahaba came from Africa to Medina, they came because they were driven out, they came because they had no option they had no choice. Given an option given a choice, they would have liked to remain in Makkah and make NACA the center of the existence, the development and the propagation of Islam. But this was not the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala this was not the will of Allah subhanaw taala so they left Bucha and they came to Medina. As I said in my last class, they came completely destitute because the Macan people, they
confiscated their wealth. They
took over everything, they had movable and immovable property. And they, many of them just barely escaped with their lives because the market is even trying to kill them. And this includes also the rise of Salem, and our workers.
Because there was a price there was a price of 100 cabin, which was a massive amount of money. In those days. There was a price on their heads, live or dead, right? Wanted alive or dead. This was the this is the kind of poster if those days, if they had been posted, they would have posted that and not because they were criminals, not because they harmed anybody will be good, but because they wanted the best for everyone in the world. This is a strange thing about as far as doubter, Islam is concerned. Now when they came to Medina, and this is where the difference happens, which is that when these on saris when these muhajir roll when these people came, and that's why I said, you know,
we call them Maha giran. We call them migrants, we call them people who migrated. But effectively they were refugees. They were refugees. But very interestingly, when these refugees came to Madeira, they did not live in refugee camps. Also, paired one with one one on sorry with one Mahajan. And the Maharaja the anzar. Took the Muslim the Mahajan into his own home.
They did not stay in refugee camps, this deal with people that this is one of the very beautiful elements of Islam and Islamic culture which seems to have been lost. Because today Take for example, orphanages right on a sidenote, I remember somebody told me that they in India, when Marana
I will call up I don't know what I will Allah Modi
and I want to learn it. The person who formed who is the founder of Islamic when I would love Otto he was alive.
Sorry, this is redundant redundancy in in speaking I don't know why we always when he was alive, it obviously could not have done it if it was dead. Anyway. So somebody went to our about God and invited him to inaugurate a yachtie ohana, as we call it. An orphanage in their in their city. And our model the Rottweiler refused.
So they were they were surprised and you know, maybe they were hurt or something. So we are trying to a good thing. Why would you oppose it? Why would you? Why would you refuse, he said, Because to put orphans into a separate facility
is like rejecting them. And it only increases their feeling of loneliness and abandonment. They're already they have no parents to stick them into a facility no matter how luxurious that might be. And have them being cared for by paid servants, who are the people in the
who take care of the inmates, only enhances and increases their feeling of being lost and be and having nobody in society. He said this is not what Islam teaches us. Islam teaches us to take the orphan into your own home and give the orphan a family
or the orphan does not have his or her biological parents. But the adoptive parents become neutral like parents.
Obviously, there are rules of hijab and so on was the was the orphans become mature, but it gives them a feeling of being part of a family, which is what is lost is not because of food and shelter. What is really needed is that emotional support, which
They would never get in an orphanage, the same thing happens if you take the refugees and stick them into a refugee camp, even if it's a five star hotel, it is still a refugee camp, very, very different from accepting them in your own home and treating them like your own brothers and sisters. It is completely in today's world, you know, it is not even and you saying this, because I don't think anybody was willing to accept it. But these are the some of the most beautiful things about Islam, which if we accepted, we would create a very, very beautiful society based on compassion and based on,
on on really, you know, a true love for each other without discrimination. Now, that's one of the also some of the people who bear obviously not everybody, because there wasn't that much. But some of the people who paired with a word people who were so disparate and so completely different from each other, that you would never believe that these two people could actually become brothers, but they were beloved rava Delana was paired with one of the insanely one of the Arab Arabs of Alonza.
Salman al Farsi,
who was a
was a budget. And this was a matter of they were
very chauvinistic, as far as language was concerned. He was paired with
So people stayed with people
and families were bought, were created.
The anzar Like I mentioned yesterday, they were so beautiful, and they shared everything they had so beautifully, that a completely new sense of identity was formed based on a shared faith, not based on shared history, not based on shared bloodlines or lineage, but shared his shared belief.
Some of the Sahaba
who came to Medina,
including people like Volker so they can say the Navarre and so on, but Delano
Medina was, especially in some places, it was swampy and so on. So it had it had some, you know, ailments and I don't know maybe they had malaria or something, but they had to people will get sick. And Zara was out there very miserable. And they yearn to go back to Makkah. Now, when the soldiers have heard about this, he made dua,
and he prayed for the love of Medina to enter the hearts of the Muslims. He said Allahumma hubub Elaine al Medina, could have been Makkah. Oh, she said, he said, Oh Allah,
let us make us love Medina, like we love Makkah.
Or even more, even more. He made dua for Baraka in Medina and he said, Oh Allah double the blessing of Medina, compared to what you have given to Makkah and hamdulillah
Allah subhanaw taala
studied the hearts of the believers, Medina is protected from the jail. This is a special reward for being patient in the hardship of Medina. It had as I said, it had it was swampy it had fevers, it would get very cold in the winter.
And the Sahaba who came from Makkah, they were not used to the climate, so they got sick, and they found it difficult to live
to live there and so you know, they some people sort of complained and so I suppose SLM gave them made this dua for them.
And he said that if anyone is patient, in the hardships of Medina, I will be his intercessor I will be I will make stuff out for him on the day of judgment. And also as I said, I've said whoever can die in Medina, then let him die in Medina, because I will intercede for you on the Day of Judgment. I make dua that Allah subhanaw taala should take my life in Medina and I make the same dua for any of you who would like that to happen to any of which
it is for Allah subhanaw taala to do it in the in whichever way he wants
us to pray
that he should get shahada in Medina.
So his daughter,
Omar Hafsa rondalla Han ha. The wife of Rosa
also supplement our mother she wanted said to him, how is it? How is this going to happen? How is it possible? Because you are you live in Medina and you are asking for death in Medina for shahada and Medina to be to die as a shade in Medina. She said all the wars and so on are being fought you know hundreds of miles away they fought in Iraq and in in Persia
you know in the in Sharm What did up there was
in Sharm and in in Persia
hundreds of miles away. You are asking for shahada in Medina Medina is the safest place on earth and how you would get shot and Medina said that our the Lana said I make dua it is for Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept this dua And if Allah accept the love and make it happen, he's the one who has the power to make it happen. And that's exactly what happened. He was killed he was Shaheed while leading Salat al Fajr in masjid and nabavi Sharif.
Also, as I said have also said we have a plot against the people of Medina, Allah subhanaw taala will dissolve that person and their plot.
As salt dissolves in water,
Medina is also sacred and so cutting or trees killing animals, fighting and getting arms in Medina is prohibited.
It is also what is called the end because we call it reach the Hara. And so we respected for that.
Now the McCanns they continued with their plotting and scheming and they plotted the plotted to
against resources salon because he was still Medea the top plotted to imprison him or anxiety when finally the plotter to kill him. So Abuja recommended the last, so let us kill him
now, and he said that
the way to do that he said, If any individual kills, kills him, then the bhanwar Shem, the one of the mythology will become the enemies of that person and that person's tribe. So he said, the best thing to do is
to all the tribes to get together and kill him collectively, so that the responsibility for his murder his blood will be distributed among all the clans. And so obviously the bundler gem cannot fight everyone. So they will ask for blood money, which others can be and that is Mater will end. This was
a huge help advice. May Allah subhanaw taala save us from such advisors and such advice. Now Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran Allah said, What is the young guru because vena cava will youth be Toka? How to Look? How you hurry Joka young guru, our young guru, Allahu Allah, okay, we'll mark it in Allah's right that I said which means and remember when the disbelievers
when these people are Makkah
they plotted against you all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
to imprison you or to kill you or to banish you from your home, that is Baca, they were plotting and Allah subhanaw taala to was planning and Allah subhanaw taala is the best of planners. So this is the
most writers, comforting Rasulillah Salam by this is
a loss of our dela dot Rasul as an asylum a dua for Hegira. To when he was going to leave, we taught him this dwad is one of the doors that you can make inshallah
when you are traveling,
and it's one of those guys which is full of baraka for the traveler.
In surah, Tulisa Allah subhanaw taala saver, or rob be at the kidney Mukalla CDPO. Walk origini Maharaja Siddiqui while you're in the middle of doing some fun and nasira Allah subhanaw taala said or and say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Myra led my entry
and in this case with his boss to the city of Medina, be good and likewise by exit which was in this case from the city of Makkah, be good and Grant be from yourself is supporting authority to help me or a firm sigh or a proof. So this is the dua which you can also make anytime when you are traveling in sha Allah.
You come to the
as I said one of the
event in the Sierra for sources
from which the calendar has been taken. And that is the
the Hijra have also realized. I just said they have a Delana. Married. She said one day at noon. And it's important when we think about no odd about this time, because usually
among the Arabs, and this was the time of of siesta. Right. So they had
they had this habit of siesta because it was the hottest time of the day.
So it was very unusual for anyone to be about out and about at this time. So I say that's just the law says that.
One day I had no, we saw a man approaching our house and his face was covered. He had a niqab across his face. When he came close, my father recognized him and he said Mohamed Salah Salem will not come at this time unless it is important.
He opened the door and he sallallahu alayhi salam entered the house and he said to my father, please ask everyone to leave
a worker's another alarm said, Yasser Allah, there is no one here except your family.
So he's saying that, you know, your family is my family also accepted that? And he said,
Then, he said,
I had been given permission to leave Makkah and make hedger.
Delano had tears in his eyes. And he said Al Hamdulillah and he said, Can I be your companion? Can I Can I go with you?
Said Yes, and I
started weeping with happiness. I shall have the Alana said this was the first time that I saw anybody weeping with joy. This is for her it was a strange thing that her father is so happy that he is actually weeping with joy.
It was a dangerous journey, to say the least. But Abubakar Delano was so happy that he was to be the companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam
one of the lessons from here is that it is the question of how the company is more important than the destination
even in our lives,
good companions will take us to a good destination like bad company in particular to bad destination, sometimes the destination in your mind might be something good, which you want you to would have liked to
go to, but because the companions were not good,
you know it is possible that you might not reach that destination. So it is something which is
important to keep in mind the importance of good companions.
So as soon as our Salem asked our workers
to get two camels ready, I will walk out there and say to him, I already have them ready.
I had a feeling that Europe would
permit you to leave my car. And so I prepared the cameras. But also as I said, I'm said I will pay for them. I will do whatever it pleases you to do is acceptable to me. Now, this is the again so many things we learn from a worker
may Allah bless him and mellows rattling increases the result in Jana.
This is the basic soul the rule of hospitality to do what pleases the guest
unfortunately we in our cultures we impose on the guests you know we make life difficult for the guests like so when somebody comes for example you say no you have to eat, you must eat with us. And the guests said look I just ate so no you have to eat. If I eat I will die he said no day but it you know this is the kind of waiting this being hospital we will take and put food into the plate of the guests when the person is eating, forcing them to read more than what they would normally have eaten and so on. All of these are not rules of hospitality. These are all things where
it is you are imposing on the guest as one of my one of my teachers is to say
MEMA Nawaz, he came on a game madman key merci
Jalaja Mimaki bazooka Muthana CommCare de yaki merci Zabur the steam Mr. Pichai is Kimani, Mr. Nordine. He used to say that hospitality doesn't mean hospitality means that you do whatever you are doing according to the wish and the desire of the guest hospitality does not mean that you impose your you impose your will on the guest. This is not hospitality.
So he said whatever it's x is pleases you we want to pay a hamdulillah it is baraka for me, I will take the money if you don't want to pay Alhamdulillah this is my gift. So, he didn't see all of this, but that's what he meant. He said whatever it pleases you to do is acceptable to me. And that's the real rule of hospitality.
Rasul Allah then appointed I live in Abu Dhabi
to sleep on his bed, and the reason was not because he was afraid of death or he was afraid or he was putting I say, the rally in a place where if they were attacked, then say the rally would be killed. It is because the Salem
had a lot of things, which the people have mkhaya given him for safekeeping.
And he did not want to leave Maccha without returning the trust's to those people who had entrusted him with those things, I imagine this is people who are his enemies, that people who are who are who have been opposing him, yet those same people, even though they oppose them, they still trusted him and they had given him things to keep and so the rally or the law, no he left behind to
fulfill that trust gives us things and then for him to come to
come with him to
not come with him, but come later on to Medina.
The as they left and
they were going sometimes I will walk on the
boardwalk in front of rasuna salaam, sometimes he would walk behind.
So, I asked him why are you doing this sometimes you are in the front and behind I will walk out with their arms area. So
if I sense any danger in front, then I walk in front University sense any danger from the back I walk behind you and would you rather that happened
Rather than to me, he said jasola To me, this is what I would like if anything was to happen it happened to me not to you,
then there is a lot of thought there was a cave. And if you see it not a big massive gave you like a whole game system and liquids are sort of a hole in the in the hill.
And they decided to take some take shelter there and spent the night
Walker Alonzo went inside to check
to see if there any, you know anything harmful inside the cave.
And he when he was satisfied, he called us also sell them
and they took shelter in the escape.
Now the people had
the courage had
put as I mentioned to you
a bounty on on the heads of sorrows of Salem and his friend walker
or Delano and so next morning
they came and I mean they literally sort of caught up with them. This was a Salah man I woke up literally stayed in that cave for three days. And asthma been Rebekah of the alarm on
the daughter of our procedure for the alarm who the older sister of Aisha are the Alana. She would bring them food
and she would highly dangerous because if she got caught the she would be you know punished and also if she came there and
in the Volador and tractor they will meet them. But Halal Allah, Allah protected.
On one instance, there was a herd of sheep and she asked the shepherd to
walk the sheep over her footprints. And he did that. So she came and she used to
bring them food
during those days, one day the forage caught up with them. And
they were standing they came right up to the cave and a worker who could literally see them
Beat. He said yes Allah if they only look down they will see us. So Salah salem said,
worker, what do you say about to
the third of whom is Allah? What do you say about to the third of whom is Allah
and the source of Salam was completely at peace and not afraid at all. I woke up
that day. From that day, I was never afraid of anything. Many years later
life of the have read that when the tribes were postulating
the people saw that as if this was
being completely come in, not not hassled, and you know, not bother. And he was sort of, you know, totally
totally at peace. So they said to me, how is it possible that you are so completely at peace and you're not bothered? So he said from the day when I was in the phone, and
send peace and tranquility on me, and I've never been afraid since. Now let's rattler we will Quran later.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said to the believers in Latin Soto aka NASA hola who is us Raja Hola, vena cava ro. Nene. Is Uma. Phil hurry is the Apolo is our heavy Latha has been in Allah Marana for NS and Allah Who Sakina who I lay here for a year the homie you know, the lambda Roja, but John Kelly Martin V Nagato. Guevara was so flat or caliber to Allah He hit here earlier. Allahu Aziz on Hakeem
if you help him Mohamed Salah Salem or not, it doesn't matter
because Allah already helped him when the disbelievers drove him out. The second of two when they that is Mohamed Salah Salah and I will look at our severe for Delano, we're in the K and he SallAllahu sallam said to his companion worker, do not be afraid. Do not be sad Do not be afraid surely Allah is with us lotta hazard in the La Hermana don't be sad Don't be afraid. Surely Allah is with us. Then Allah subhanaw taala sent down His tranquility
then I'm gonna send down is a Kenai scar is tranquility upon even strengthen embers forces angels that you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the last word it was the word of Allah.
And Allah is almighty always we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his health, protection and everything. We asked him to save us from this visit for several weeks at one early he was ended up together
