And today will be somewhat,

00:00:13--> 00:00:16

related or building on yesterday's reminder

00:00:16--> 00:00:19

regarding the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

wasalam and the standard Allah

00:00:22--> 00:00:25

wanted and did see them at and want

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

them to be.

00:00:26--> 00:00:27

And this

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

parable is about

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

the perfect

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

community of the sahabah

00:00:33--> 00:00:36

radhiallahu anhu. The companions of the Prophet sallallahu

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

alaihi wa sallam. It was not a community

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

of prophets, it was a community

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

that was raised at the hand of the

00:00:43--> 00:00:43

prophet

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

And so the most perfect prophet produced the

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

most perfect community

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

in the history of humanity.

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

This is the idea.

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

And I actually have to set the stage

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

by mentioning that the Sahaba

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

suffered so much in the early years in

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

Mecca. Persecution, and then eventually being driven out

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

of their homeland to Madinah.

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

War after war is launched against them. They

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

finally develop some leverage,

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

and they march to Mecca to perform umrah.

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

They are despite having the strength,

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

they were committed to a deal by the

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam that we're not gonna

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

fight and we're not gonna perform umrah this

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

year. And they felt also taken advantage of

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

by the kuffar that you're not allowed to

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

make umrah and you're not allowed to have

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

the Muslims that become Muslim in Mecca. You

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

can't have them either, and you have to

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

take off your ihram, and they were devastated.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

The narration clearly mentions that they were sobbing

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

and almost

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

cut each other, slaughtered each other while they

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

were shaving their heads because they had to

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

interrupt their umrah.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

In light of all of this, Allah reveals

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Surah Al Fatiha.

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

The surah of victory. They saw that such

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

a loss, Allah is telling you you just

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

wait. This is a huge victory.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

And then the last verse of the surah

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

celebrates the sahabah in a way that

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

arguably surpasses every other way in the whole

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

Quran.

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

Allah

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

says, Muhammadun

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

Rasulullah. This is the ayah. Muhammad is the

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. And

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

this is already a special ayah because one

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

of the few places where he's mentioned by

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

name, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. So this declaration,

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

this celebratory

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

declaration, Muhammad is the messenger of God, salallahu

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

Then it couples with him what,

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

and those with him, it's about to describe

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

them at such length.

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

And those with him,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

They're not scared. They're not weak. They are

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

fierce in the face of the disbelievers.

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

Of course the Muslim is friendly, and he's

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

supposed to be gentle, and he's supposed to

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

be easy to be made friends with. But

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

meaning fierce with those who are fierce with

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

them.

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

Right?

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

Fierce with the kuffar, these believers.

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

Compassionate,

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

protective

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

amongst each other. They were devastated that their

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

brothers are left there to the persecutors, but

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

they had to,

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

at least temporarily.

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

Allah is celebrating. They're so merciful among each

00:03:10--> 00:03:10

other.

00:03:12--> 00:03:12

Listen.

00:03:18--> 00:03:22

And you find them constantly bowing, constantly kneeling

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

in prostration,

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

seeking pleasure from Allah, his pleasure, and his

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

bounty.

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

So he praise them inside

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

and out, outwardly prostrating and bowing, and inside

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

sincere sincerity.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

He praise them inside and out.

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

Then he says

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

This is their description

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

in the meaning

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

1000 of years before I even created the

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

the I was telling people about them. Can

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

you imagine the feeling to to hear that?

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

And by the way, why was this particular

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

description of them in the tawra? Because the

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

people of the tawra fell into a lack

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

of sincerity.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

The A lack of soft heartedness.

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

It was the problem was their spirituality

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

and their purity and their sincerity, and so

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

at the end of time, I'm gonna send

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

the greatest prophet and you're gonna see what

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

their hearts look like. You're gonna see what

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

their sincerity and purity looks like. It matches

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

what the people of the tawra needed to

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

hear.

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

Then it goes on into the actual parable.

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

I'm going to Don't worry. I'm going to

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

rush through it. He says,

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

and their example in the next book, the

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

evangel, The book that Allah sent to Isa

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

alaihis salam.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

So Jesus peace be upon him.

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

Is like a plant that begins to sprout

00:04:42--> 00:04:42

from the ground.

00:04:44--> 00:04:44

And

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

then there emerges

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

around it

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

different like twigs. You know how a tree

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

has a root and then sometimes others sort

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

of intertwine and strengthen it, or you have

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

like those small plants that you have to

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

tie strings to until they're ready to stand

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

on their own.

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

A plant that is supported with little twigs

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

from all sides.

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

And this is What is this saying?

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

That

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

even the prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, you

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

He didn't just benefit you, he benefited from

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

you. You even were able to support the

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

prophet of God.

00:05:21--> 00:05:21

Like you know the

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

is like the shore. It's where where you're

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

close to the sea.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

So means there's a stem and you got

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

very close to the prophet

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

and you supported him from all sides.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

And so it it got strengthened.

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

Islam that the prophet was building for in

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

the world strengthened. Why? Because of this intertwinedness.

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

And subhanAllah, the hadith says what? It says

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

the example of the believers,

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

is like a single building.

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

And he put his fingers together like this

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

hadith. So it's saying it's like that. Right?

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

They're they're like this.

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

And it strengthened that stem.

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

And so it was able to grow healthy

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

on its own now.

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

And it became independent on its stock.

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

You're a in

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

a way that impresses

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

every farmer.

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

You know, the the farmer waits for the

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

day when, okay, finally.

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

Autopilot. Finally, it's not gonna topple over. Finally,

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

not a little bit of drizzle is gonna

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

ruin my whole season. Right? You are a

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

jibuzzo, and I told you before that faith

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

is visible. Faith can be seen.

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

I had

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

4 brothers, good brothers, came today and visited

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

me, and they were telling me

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

that

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

the fact that Muslims pray and we don't

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

makes me want to look into Islam.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

I could just you guys just always praying

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

everywhere. You stop on a dime, you pull

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

over, you guys pray. Right?

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

And the way that you guys are together

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

you know, when I go to church he

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

said, I went to church this morning. That's

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

what he said to me, the good brother.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

He said, but when I go, I feel

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

like

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

they're not there for each other. They're there

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

for themselves. It's like self promotion.

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

You know?

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

SubhanAllah. And that was Remember this is their

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

example in what in what Tell me quickly.

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

Make me a happy man.

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

This is their example in the injil, in

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

the evangel. You see the problem with the

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

people of Tara was a lack of sincerity.

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

Right? Hardheartedness.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

And this one was a lack of unity.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

But the same way

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

I'm gonna have to stop here. Ibn Taymiyrahima

00:07:20--> 00:07:23

Allah, he says, Allah sent Musa, alayhis salam,

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

with the jalal. He sent him with the

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

mighty law of God. And then he sent

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

Isa alayhi wasalam to call the world to

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

what? To the jamal, to the harmony and

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

beauty that God calls to. And then he

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

sent Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam with the camel,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

with the total package.

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

And he succeeded at instilling that total package

00:07:42--> 00:07:43

in the sahaba Sahaba

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

That is why no one will ever reach

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

as a community the status of the Sahaba,

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

though we are always supposed to stretch ourselves

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

community.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

community.
