Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah had not been able to me it was an auto summarization if you don't be able to Salim Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even cathedra and cathedra Mavado my brothers or sisters, it was it was a seven year of Revelation.
And this is after as a result of salaam had sent away these have to assume to have a Sr.
Which we talked about in the last class and lesson.
Think things came to a head and the Quraysh asked Manohar Shem Manu Matali,
to hand over Rasul Allah al salam to them to be killed.
Now, the Bonacci, when was
the one with the Muslims and non Muslims, this shows that these were people of character, these are people who had, you know, they
honored their relationships and the honor their vows and
their promises to one another and honored friendship
and family ties. So both the Muslims and the non Muslims, they're reduced.
Now, it is really think of it today it gives a different meaning to, you know, right loyalty and friendship and so on. From what we have today to their loyalty, friendship, everything seems to depend on only one thing, which is to be continuously liked.
We are loyal to our so called friends, as long as the so called friends are saying things which we like to hear.
Right? I mean, I've seen this so many times. And it puts things in perspective and Hamdulillah. I'm not complaining where people who,
you know, who believe that they are my students, I mean, I never take anybody as a student. So
they believe they have our students, and many of them wash hands, I love you and this and that. I've learned so much from you, and so on. And then one day I say something that they don't like, and I'm not talking about any, you know, I don't abuse anybody or I'm not talking about criticizing somebody personally, I'm just saying that I say something, which goes against whatever they believed. Now, I'm not saying this out of my out of my hat, or onto my turn, I'm saying it based on evidence. So I say, Look, this is the real evidence about this thing.
And instantly, overnight.
She has, I think you should you should recite the Kalama. Again, you are no longer Muslim. Straight I am now from being my chef and I owe you this and I owe that and you know, I'm I love you and what not to now I'm mortal. I'm an apostate. I must reentered Islam.
I have these things in writing, we are loving ALLAH forgive. Forgive us for what we what we say and what we do. The most recent was when COVID happened three years ago 2019 When COVID happened. And there was this huge controversy about whether we should gather in massages or not for Java and Java, Java and so on. And this was against the laws of the countries in different countries, people who are Muslims who were trying to do that were being persecuted, because they were seen as breaking the law. They were getting a huge bad name in the community because when people said because of you COVID is spreading and whatnot. And people asked me to say something so I gave a hot bath
in which I quoted evidence from the Quran and Sunnah about this, to say that to quarantine to take precautions to stay away from crowds and so on and so forth. And to try to prevent yourself from getting the disease by taking precautions masks and whatnot. And also being careful that because of you it doesn't spread to somebody else. And I gave evidence is evidence from the Quran Hassan the ad is a resource SLM the
from this era, the stories of the plague and so on it amongst all this
and what is the result of that I get these messages say you are a voter you have left Islam
in that Illa when you send to me I think I was very happy at that that really serious this began heavy because first of all, the message didn't come from anybody who I actually message given them somebody I didn't even know so these are people on the on the channel, who watch my videos
One person did something which normally these things don't bother me, but this thing really hurt me it really, you know, my, my heart was very, very heavy and, and very sad. And what this person did was that I one of my books is a book called 2010 2010 55 I wrote this book when I was 55 years old on 20th of October 2010.
And in that I wrote 55 life lessons. So, this person posted a picture,
tearing this book,
telling this book, and he said that,
this is what I think of you.
And I, for me, literally, it was like somebody had slaughtered my child or something, you know, it was in that 11 And
I, it came to the tip of my tongue to make dragons this person but I said to her, I will not make anybody leave it I leave the case to Allah subhanaw taala the My point is, this is the nature of
I want to the nature of the Muslims, because I don't want to clog everybody with the Muslims, but think about is I have
I have been teaching now and consulting and teaching now, for 40 years.
And in all these 40 years, the vast majority of my students are not Muslim.
Huge, a number of them probably the major major part of them are Hindus.
The rest of them are Christians, deities and so on and so on. And there's a very small number of Muslims.
And I say what I have to say and I'm no not hamdulillah for speaking the truth and for speaking
for saying what needs to be said fearing nobody, this is my revenues hamdulillah
so, obviously, I would have said things which went against the beliefs and the you know, the the whatever life position and so on, all these other people have the numbers
but no one ever behaved this way with me, except the Muslims.
It's not to say they didn't disagree or
what nobody behaved in this way except the Muslims. This is our character what what is it that we are going to say?
The reason I'm saying all this is that even the kuffaar among the coration maca are not like this
there are people of character.
So, though they disagreed with wrestlers or Salah on huge matter as a matter of belief, no matter who they worshipped,
when it came to handing him over to his enemies, they refused. Now, this refusal was not free, it was not a matter of opinion okay. So, here is a survey to tick the box and after that, you know, do whatever No, this was something which they paid a price
because then what happened was the other tribes of Koresh they decided that okay, if these people will not hand over Mohamed Salah Salem to us, for us to kill him,
nobody will trade with these people, nobody will marry with them.
Nobody will accept any kind of proposal or invitation.
They will cut off all connections social economic, with these people with the Banu Hashim and brother Muhammad Ali
until they hand over Hamas.
And then they also decided that they are to be surrounded in their enclaves. So these were people they were saying in this
the shape of italic
they were to be surrounded in their enclaves. So they were embargoed, completely sanctioned and no food is to be allowed inside yet.
It was not just a matter of saying okay, we will not trade in you know,
in commercial item No, they will not even be allowed to get any food.
they did that all this they wrote into a document and this document was hung up inside the cover so they
they, you know, they decided that this is something which is so far so important. So they they hung up this document with all of this stuff written in it inside the cover.
You always have it on the law Abdullah was from the Bermuda live incidentally. Now,
sadly, because of the law know about those days
He's again from the corner of the motel it is an uncle.
He said we used to,
we eventually got to a point where you used to eat the leaves of trees. And he says, our,
our feces were like, God droppings. And they imagine what kind of nutrition they would have got from leaves of trees. And this happened for three years. It's not a small thing. Not a small thing at all.
one of the again, even among the people who
originally agreed to this thing, and they did it, they were again, good people. So there was a champion of the Hadith exam in Hadith, he was against this, he was related to the brainwashing from his mother's side. And he was against this thing. So what he would do was, he would load a camel with food, and take it to the top of the hills that
surrounded the Enclave overarching
in the night, and then he would set the camera free and you know, whack it. So it would go down the hill, and it would end up in the enclave and the word Hashem had something to eat. Obviously, he would not do this on a, you know, some regular basis every week or something, but he could do it wherever he could do it. So some, some relief they had.
now during this process, this was a period during which our mother Omona had
been coilette career, the Kumara or the Allahu anha, or that
she literally bankrupted herself. She spent her entire wealth that she was a wealthy woman, she spent her entire wealth in buying food for all these people.
Now, again, obviously, there will be some kind of a, you know, black market kind of thing happening. And there are people who are supplying what they would be, you know, they would have to be paid and maybe somebody was trying to make money out of it. We don't know what the details are, but she'd literally spent all her money until she was she had literally nothing left. And this was a period when Rasulullah saw Salah Monday was sitting in his house when Gmail which alarm came and he said to Nabisco, salaam? He said yes of Allah. Your wife Khadija is coming to you with something
please say to her that
I am saying salam DUA
I came and
said Gibreel is here or a Salaam and he's saying salaam to you. And then wa salam said, Say to Khadija Ravi Alana is to say to your wife, that Allah subhanho wa Taala send his salam to her.
And as a result, Islam conveyed the she started weeping she was one of Allah subhanaw taala sending salam to me and Jabez a lot of things I love doing.
Very special people rather than sisters, you have to understand who we follow.
he's been hired if
data was not a Muslim, but so he went to the hair when been a V OMA year. And he said to him, does it please you? Are you happy with this that you are eating and dressing well, when your own ankles, they are in distress.
And are my part I can say that if they were the ankles of I will hack up, he will not sit quietly and do nothing. Now what was the name of our Jahad he was called the father of wisdom because he was a wise man he was he was one of the big leaders and chiefs of courage. So
his his title that was given to him was a bull hacker. And
later on resources are given the title of jail because of his behavior.
Has the actual name was our been a sham. And he was called, I will hook up now. So
the jump in Harris
went to Zuhair Ben.
And he said to him and he said if it was
I will hug him in this situation where somebody was threatening his family he will not sit quiet. He said he is asking us to bark on our ankles. Whereas he will not do the same thing to his ankles.
So that said, you said shame on you shall I'm only one person what can I do? He said and then he said well, I if I had one other person with me, I would
would go against this, I would abrogate the document. So he jumps in there is one person with you.
So that's it, who is that I'm with you. So as soon as I find out of the person, third person, this is again a very interesting dynamic here of how leadership works. Even if you are correct, you still need some support. People will follow. Some people follow because they like us, some people follow because the, your argument makes sense to them.
Some people follow because
of the number of people who follow you.
If for example, how, On a sidenote how Hamza bin Abdullah multilevel Delana came to Islam.
He had got he was a hunter, he was you know, he used to go out, and four days together and he would hunt.
Now, and these are the days they might in the seventh century, they said that they were lions in that area. So they were they were animals, a wildlife. I don't say today. I don't know if you can find a mouse. But those days and Hamza Bimota live was a famous Archer. It was a famous warrior. So he used to have had to he was out hunting. He was not in
in Makkah. When he returned, somebody said to him, do you know what they're doing to your interview? He said what the 100 other military was the same age as a sorcerer Salah he was also
he was he also was brought up and asked in the same tribe as also lesson Salaam. So he had that connection as well. But in relationship, he was his uncle because he was Hamza will Abdul Muttalib he was the he was the father. He was a brother of his father, Abdullah
bin Abdullah metallic. So they said you know what they're doing to your, to your uncle to do interviews or what he said.
He named the name nobody had
actually assaulted, he tried to harm him and so on because he accepted Islam. So 100 out of the land who had just come he was
in he was just in his, in his armor and he had his weapons. He went straight to the cover, and there was sitting there with his cronies. Hamza Delano took his bow and slammed him and slammed it on the head
and fell down. He's bleeding from his head. And he said, You tried to have my interview. He said, I accept Islam. I shall do Allah Allah Allah Allah wa shahzada Muhammad Rasul Allah. He says, Whoever wants to make his wife, a widow coming up with he said, Come and touch me. Let me see what you do.
And of course, nobody had the guts to stand up to say anything to him. So he was he became Muslim, he went straight to the Surah Surah. Solomon, he accepted Islam. He declared that in the XML. Now, if you think about this, Hamza will have done whatever the Allahu didn't accept Islam because he was convinced in at that point in time of the theological
truthfulness of Islam and so on compared to what you whatever he believed, he accepted Islam because of his love for Muhammad Sallallahu Newson, and he said, How can anybody touch you know, my interview, and my friend, and he was saying, they were literally friend, and they were together, and they loved each other very much. So people accept
Islam for many reasons. And one of the reasons is also to see accept Islam or accept anything by also people try to see who else beliefs. So this he said, bring some of us so he
went to Madame being.
And he said to him, mme, are you pleased? Are you happy with the situation that to have two clans have been of the RAF suffer while you live comfortably? And he said, If you allow the courage to do this, they will come and they will do the same thing to you. So he said, This is not only about them, it's also about the future. So what I've said I'm only one person and says, you know, same story. So the sham been hiring, I see this person in seminaries how committed he is to his cause, and he is going imaginary. Remember also that these are enemies, the other people are our enemies. And if he if they got to know what he was doing, then he would probably be hard. Yet he's not afraid
of that. So he went to
our book study, and then he went do Zumba with us. Now, all of them so now they were five, six people. They finally all got together and they met in the night and they
agreed to destroy this document. So next morning, we'll have interview
he put on
In all his final year in ceremonial
they went to make the half of the cover the time and the courageous to meet in the another way, which was the meeting house which was close by.
He then came and stood right above the assembly of the coalition. He said Does it please you to eat and dress? Well, while the manual has given by the Muttalib are going through this distress, he said, I will not sit in this assembly unless the document the embargo document is taller. And then each of the others they all stood up and they all said the same thing. I was stood up and he said, you plan this and this is not spontaneous, but by then it was too late. So he went into the cabin to tear up the document. And he found that the document had already been eaten up by termites except two words, this week Allahumma that started that in the Name of Allah, this week, Allahumma X except
that everything else terminates at evening time anyway. And so the embargo was lifted and the hardship of the manual Mahna Mahna Mahna Mahna Mahna will deliver when Hashem ended. But what happened in that three year period also was something which is tragic, which could not be obviously reversed. And that was that both of the
modalities and how these little kumara Alana, both of them passed away in this period.
And that is why that period and that end, last year of it is called the animal husbandry, the year of sadness, the year of grief for sorcerers and because two of the people who loved the most and two of the people who weren't his greatest supporters, both of them died in this period due to the hardship and of course, you know, we die when our time comes. The
also a bad matter of
tragic tragedy and great sadness. resourcer Salem, well, Abdullah matale I was
arbitrary. He died without Islam. He died on his religion.
That was a matter of great
regret and great sadness to resources because he, he sat he went up the Otalia was dying, they informed me he came he sat next to him. And he also was informed when he came running and he sat on the other side and also said to our family, we said my uncle simply say Lila hail Allahu Allah. Just said,
I will hear you and I will be your witness before Allah subhanaw taala of the judgment.
I will just say to him so you will, you will accept his religion because you are afraid of death.
And may Allah protect us from ourselves? May Allah protect us from our egos. The biggest enemy is not shatter the biggest enemy is our ego because our ego is inside us like cancer.
And I will tell you said I die on the religion of my forefathers
and he died
later on the Astros Rosa Salem, this is what will happen to your uncle.
Now this again is one of the many many evidences and proofs of the truthfulness of Rasul Allah.
He did not say, Well, you know, Allah will spare my uncle because you have Malka Allah will spare my uncle because he's awarded me No, he said he will be put in Johanna. The only concession is that his punishment will be the least of all the punishments in Jana. They said, they asked him I said, What is that least punishment? He said, they will put sandals of fire on his feet, because of which his brain will boil in his head like water. Like what about boys and apart?
Subhan Allah may Allah protect us from his mother, may Allah protect us from Johanna May Allah allow my German mirrorless monitor to free us from the fire.
Now some good lessons.
First of all, if you work for good, Allah will help you.
It's very important
to take the first step.
It doesn't matter the many times we hesitate, and we never take the first step because we try to think it through to completion and we say no, but you know, if I take the first step, what about the next and will I have this and will I have that and we'll have the finance and so we make, you know, we sort of think of our own constraints number one.
Second thing is the reason we don't take the first step is because we are afraid about what will happen so we don't even plan
There's no plan to just descend to the other. But the reality reality is that if you take the first step and Allah subhanho wa Taala helps the one who start out on the path
a little while livina Jaya do fina Lana have en Nomzamo and that's it the one who struggled and who makes effort in my path, surely I will guide him to the paths that lead to me to the path that leads to me. So, if you work for good Allah with him and this is irrespective we are not just talking about religion, if you want to follow God for help of people the in the case, which we mentioned just now, are all the people who worked for good meaning all the people who worked to relieve the mental hygiene from their difficulty they were all non Muslim, that no there was no they were not Muslim. Allah smart Allah had
to go back to some of the earlier lectures when we talked about helpful for all the
the fact to help people that the Koresh
came together and they and they found all of those people in that group who
made that pledge, while we're all non Muslims, as soon as I said, I was a witness to that. And he said much later in Medina, he said that even today, if somebody comes and invokes that treaty helper, although he said I will go to his aid. So, if you do something good Allah will help. Secondly, it shows the value of organization working together obviously, these people
they are acting individually they would have failed, but
it is something that they because they came together they are organized a loss rhondella Give them success and without could not could not stop them.
It also shows that one should act,
one should not get pulled down by pessimistic people. That is another thing which you will find I found is in many types.
Any good idea? You go to that there are some people who go to them. There was a no no, no, this won't work.
We haven't even started we haven't even tried it. How do you read what? No, no, you know, I tried something like this and it didn't work.
Okay, you tried something obviously didn't didn't try this particular thing. You tried something like this, it didn't work didn't work for you. You are a different person from from me, you have this your circumstances are different from mine. Just because something didn't work for you. Why do you assume it will not work for me.
So this is another big, you know, thing in our heads, where we think that
if something doesn't work for one person or group, then it will not work for or it will not work or not work for anyone else.
So don't get pulled on by such people. And it's a good idea not you want to go to that people want you know, there are some people like this who are going to be pessimistic and we're just going to think of all kinds of fears and difficulties and whatnot. It's best to avoid such people go to people who are I'm not saying go to people who say Oh, fantastic, great job, no, go to people who will be objective, right, and will give you some objective feedback, and will be supportive because they believe that you can achieve something.
So action is important. As I mentioned to all the people in this case, we're all wishing they were not Muslim, but they stood for justice. And so Allah subhanaw taala had them.
Action is very important because it doesn't matter what you know, what matters is what you can do with what you know. That is very important. What can you do with what you know, you may know many things, but if you cannot act, you can use it. It's up to us. And that's why I say where we stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala he will not ask us what happened because he knows what happened. He will ask us what did you do? He also knows that but he'd ask us because that is the what we are responsible for we are responsible for acting on the right thing. So did I say what is right did I do what is right that is the most important thing action is primarily is of primary importance.
If you think about this, the first command that I was worried that I gave to him was to do something on the stand and one that people now as Muslims. We are ordered to work. We are not ordered to simply sit and talk.
Omar Abdullah used to make the DA Oh Allah I seek your refuge from the strong believer and the from the strong disbeliever and the weak Muslim. I seek your refuge from the strong disbeliever and the weak Muslim. And so Allah this is so true today. A huge amount of
course Allah protects Islamic Muslims. But a huge amount of damage is done by apologetic Muslim people who are sometimes we want to say to them if you really dislike Islam, why was that?
are viable so just go to something else.
Right you don't say this but this but we mustn't always apologetic always, you know bad talking ourselves bad talking Muslims
and this apology and apologetic attitude comes out of ignorance they don't know Islam they don't know Islam they go by Islamophobic propaganda, they believe that they internalize that and they start criticizing without knowledge and without thinking May Allah protect us from being like that and from from people like that. Allah subhanaw taala did not bring about
the change of destroying gopher and ship since Osiris by supernatural means
there were no other love of Allah we descended for example on the people of Iran
they drowned because they
the people are Musa alayhis salam they act in Musa al salaam acted when they crossed the sea and the Federal gave him there and they got drunk but there was no bolt of lightning it was not like the adults on both
a big sound bolt of lightning
like it happened with the other thumb was with the with the cyclone, you know, we sat on the town for several days. Now on this didn't happen unless we're gonna give now two
in the hands of
the FBI and the people of the time. Musa Hassan was the first one who fought in the battle 100 talent to the people at the bottom and the smarter and after the after him
the FBI who came after him Saul and others and similar data sources. So action in Islam action is the number one point and we
ask Allah subhanaw taala to
to help us to be people of action and not just be Rudock
to end with I want to share a little story which was also amusing. There was a champion wrestler on the correct on the Arabs called Lucara to Lucara came to Salem and he said I will accept Islam. And I'll bet you 100 sheep if you can fight me
so in that
regard, I attacked him a sorceress and picked him up and threw him so you know he's flat on his back in your throat. He was so shocked because he was unbeatable the unbeaten champion have the courage he was so shocked it's another this is accidental live I must have slipped. So I said okay, come again. So the attractive again, again, picked him and threw him back. So again, he was right on his back. He said no, I don't I don't believe that one more time. And if you can, if you can throw me then I accept Islam.
So we again attacked a source and set up again, let me sell us on picked him up and he threw so he was again flat on his back. He stood up and he accepted Islam I think about this year is a man who is accepting Islam because he got thrown, but hamdulillah each one has his own thing.
And then he said, these are the 100 sheep which we agreed upon. Give it back to me sir, no, I don't, I don't need to see. So there are different kinds of people. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to
help us to do what that which pleases Him and to save us from that which does not please him. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to
to be with us and
and to help us to live in a way that is beneficial for us in dunya
victory while Ali he was named after
