Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah He was a big marine we'll be getting the name of Allah All Praise and Glory be to Allah and mais find his peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad and his family and his companions and all those who tread his path. And just like that 1/10 of Ramadan is over, right? May Allah azza wa jal allow us to make the best of it and accept from us doing what we can Despite the limitations that he knows best about us. Allahumma Amin. So as promised, we will continue our journey through the Sierra the blessed life story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as cited by certain passages in the Quran, and take from that in

00:00:52--> 00:01:03

sha Allah, more and more doses that reinforce our surety in him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and lessons for the purity of our hearts and souls in sha Allah.

00:01:10--> 00:01:19

Allah azza wa jal says in Surah bohat mal Malwa dark era book LML Kala, O Muhammad, Your Lord has not forsaken you he has not

00:01:20--> 00:01:57

detested you disliked you in any way nothing has changed. And then he reminded him about the earliest phases of his life and he said to him, LME, a GDK a team and for our has Allah not found you, an orphan, and he granted shelter. While we're jacoub Ah, learn for Heather and he found you lost. You didn't know what Islam was, didn't know what anything was of guidance. And so he guided well YJ deca, Elan Furner And He found you impoverished stricken with poverty and so he enriched

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

and so the context first.

00:02:01--> 00:02:47

If you remember the invisible family tree I drew for you. Two nights ago Allah azza wa jal gave Ibrahim alayhis salam is half and it's married. Out of his half came Iacob and then the Israelites the last of their Prophets was Jesus peace be upon him. We said on the other side, the brother side of the tree the cousins 600 years after Jesus peace be upon him came our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the family of Ibrahim and is married Allahi wa sallam Excellent. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, Allah, elected from the children of Israel Kwinana and equally elected from Kenya Anna Quraishi, an elected from aura ich Banu Hashim and elected me

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

from bento Hashem

00:02:51--> 00:03:21

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was born an orphan sallallahu alayhi wasallam among Banu Hashim because his father passed away before his birth Salvaterra B was salam Valley. And the earliest years of his life as was customary for the Arab they would send them to a healthier and a better place all together outside of the metropolis as much of a metropolis as Mecca can be at that time, they would send them out to the desert to breastfeed with professional nurses and they would learn so much

00:03:23--> 00:04:01

in that dynamic in that domain, and so he was taken in by a poor woman also Subhanallah she would not have taken him especially because his father had passed so nobody was going to pay her this was always for hire. But since all of her friends were going back with someone she had no bodies that okay, I'll fine. I'll take Mohammed even if I can't get paid on this. And Allah had great things in store for her. Allah blessed her in ways her animals started lactating, making milk, her dying flock started reviving, she immediately realized there was something very special about him all the way up to the story of Allah azza wa jal sending the angels to split open his chest sallallahu alayhi wa

00:04:01--> 00:04:27

sallam, and to cleanse out the share of shaitan that is stamped on us. All right, it was cleansed from him. salAllahu alayhi wasallam. Ultimately, a few years later, he has returned to his mother sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and she also dies at his 16 year of age. So he is then taken in by his grandfather, Abdulmutallab, and two short years later, at eight years old, his grandfather Abdulmutallab dies. And then he is taken in by

00:04:28--> 00:04:52

his uncle Abu Talib. Right. And eventually he gets a recruited as a shepherd in Makkah, a trader in the shadows of Abu Talib, Abu Talib himself eventually dies, right? And his wife Khadija or the Allahu anha dies, and this is now already moving into the period of prophethood. But that was just the first 40 years of his life or even 50

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

How does this prove his prophethood

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

Believe it or not, this

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

is statistically speaking, the number one reason why people believe in him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know as the late Sheikh Muhammad Sharif Rahim Allah used to say the Prophet Muhammad, if you just look at how humble his beginnings were, and how rugged his atmosphere was, how did he just himself become who he was? He was used to call him the rose in a desert. You don't expect this rose to sprout in that desert. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But what did I mean by statistically? Because when he became a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some people became Muslim because of his character, right? Some people became Muslim, because of the inherent beauty they recognized in the

00:05:39--> 00:06:18

message. Some people became Muslim because of the miracles they saw. But the vast majority of everyone was in the last year or two of his life, when they saw his accomplishment, his success story from such humble beginning, how did he become all of this sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? And you may think, you know, there are other people in the world that have humble beginnings and have great success stories. The odds were stacked against No, but this is different. And so many non Muslim historians, you know, they recognize this like Justin William Draper, and Bosworth Smith and William Montgomery watt, and Alfonso Lee, Martine names, names, names, you can look up, they all say the

00:06:18--> 00:07:01

same thing. How can any man and these are non Muslims be compared with Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Who else in the planet, his daily behavior dictates 1/3 of the lifestyles of the human race? So it's not just humble beginnings, right? It's not just in the middle of nowhere, right? It becomes the most followed person on the face of the earth, this orphan who was illiterate la sotto Salaam and a society that was majorly illiterate, financially, no resource, nothing at all. You become the most, how is he the only one they say? Where people never forgot his words and develop the whole science memorizes the Hadith and preserve them? How does it become the person that people

00:07:01--> 00:07:43

debate about how exactly they move their finger in prayer to do it exactly like him? 1004 or 500 years later, there's something extraordinary about this, right? You know, when, when Michael Hart wrote his famous book, The 100, greatest, he didn't mean the 100. Most he liked best, right? It's actually the 100 most influential people in human history, who changed the face of the earth. He puts number one as Mohammed, why sal Allahu Allah and this non Muslim American historian, because he just had to be true to the research. It was a no contest. He even says it in the intro of the book, because he knows because of like prejudice and stuff, people are gonna like object. He's saying, I

00:07:43--> 00:08:23

know many people might be surprised that I picked Mohamed, but I could not pick anybody else, like between him and second place is just too far. He is the only person he says that was supremely successful in his achievements on the religious and the secular and the political levels. Only person, like look at the rest of them. Like, look at Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. You don't want time they were debating. Ahmed Deedat Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on his soul. And they said the church has produced 2 billion people, you know that love Jesus. He said to them, the church has produced 2 billion people that profess the love of Jesus, I'll take I'll accept that. But Islam has

00:08:23--> 00:09:09

produced 1.5 billion people so far. Now. They're 1.8 or 1.9, that practice the love of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, meaning Jesus Christ peace be upon him. His life is not modeled today. He is just a placeholder for a spiritually motivating moment that's on the cross. That is their narrative, and that's it. It doesn't do anything else in their life. Think of the big thinkers of the world. Like Aristotle stood on the shoulders of Plato stood on the shoulders of Socrates right or wrong. Constantine was a great general within a great empire. But Muhammad Ali salatu salam, in the middle of the desert, isolated by endless sand, from the civilizations of the how do you become

00:09:09--> 00:09:29

the most influential human being on the face of the earth sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So those humble beginnings, and what came of them is of the greatest proofs of his prophethood and with instills in US surety about him sallallahu alayhi wasallam there is a beautiful nugget or nuance in this ayah that I wish to sort of close with a little bit

00:09:30--> 00:09:36

that scholars pointed out that Allah didn't say he found Didn't he find you an orphan for

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

so he gave you refuge he didn't say for Wacka gave you he says so he

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

so he gave refuge. He didn't say he found you lost and guided you. He said he found you last. Then he guided why he found you poor and then he enriched it doesn't say gave you refuge gave you not guidance give you riches

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

because he didn't just give him all those. He gave so many others because of him all those. Right? He took you in and took others in by your teachings. You know, I was just reading to my high schoolers last week. I only have a minute and a half left. You know, Doctor other minister made the Kuwaiti physician Rahim Allah died 10 years ago exactly.

00:10:22--> 00:11:06

He sponsored in his life 15,000 orphans, one individual, right? He brought to Islam, they estimate in his 30 years in Sub Saharan Africa. 11 million people. That's all what, that's all the production of the ripple effect of what of the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so on and so forth. He taught the world to grow, to learn to progress to dig wells. As soon as the same man by the way, Rahimullah. He's a he's credited to have dug 9500 RTC and wells in these villages and these tribes are looking at Zubaydah. This will be the last example I'll give regarding how Allah allowed so much through just this one man. You know the wealth of Zubaydah. If you ever hear of it, it's

00:11:06--> 00:11:51

it's said to be the oldest and most valuable endowment walk in all of Islamic history. She was in the first century the wife of Haroon Rashid, she was making Hajj from Iraq. And she saw that on the road from Baghdad to Mecca, it was very perilous, there was no more like easy paths to water. So she personally funded what would have costed Today hundreds of millions of dollars, basically, a she got like mechanical engineers to see where the rain lands, and to actually create a canal that for like a 10 mile journey, bring the water all the way to the people of Mina in Mecca, and this quenched people for 12. Why? Because the Prophet SAW Selim said the best charity you can do is to provide

00:11:51--> 00:12:35

water for those who can't drink, Sal, Allahu Allahu Allah. These are just like snapshots, one from 2013, and one of them from 64 After Hijra. The last point I will mention, and I'm done is where do we get purity from this? If we are measuring tequila in this month, one of the greatest signs of you having tequila is how much impact happens beyond you, right? It's not just about what you feel that was not an emotion, not just some spiritual experience you have, the more tequila you have, the more kind you are with people. The more patient you are with people, the more considerate you are of people, the more impactful in positive ways you are to people.

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

I saw a bumper sticker and I always remembered it says, Oh, God, please make the religious people good, and make the good people religious.

00:12:45--> 00:13:06

That tells you something, right? Lots of times people sort of sell themselves this external performance of Dean whatever the dean is right? As enough. The reality of our faith is what it produced out of the Prophet SAW Selim and all of his true followers, may we be of them Allahumma Amin, just like a la Fado. Salallahu Santa Barbara kind of Vienna, Muhammad Ali. He was on the edge marine
