00:00:26--> 00:00:28

This is the fourth night of the

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

fourth night of the

00:00:36--> 00:00:46

year 1429. And before I forget to show up next Friday is I shoot off. So the first thing of the day of Ashura is recommended.

00:00:48--> 00:00:55

Just make sure that you pass the day before or the day before and after. So, either

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

Friday, well, Thursday and Friday, or Thursday, Friday, and

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

Saturday.

00:01:10--> 00:01:15

And I'll just leave it at that, giving you a third or fourth option. So just pick one of the two.

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

And the departure, of course, has its significance. And

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

this is not a time to talk about it, maybe maybe we'll talk about it next week.

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

But the month of June, is the month of

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

victory. Also bear in mind that the economies are taken.

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

So serious, especially

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

issues that have to deal violate the rights of others.

00:01:47--> 00:02:11

It's kind of multiplied. Even worse, I mean, it's bad as it is to commit any sin. And the sin has to do with violating the rights of others or oppressing or wanting someone. It's even worse, because you're not only committing a sin, but it also violates the rights of someone. And we know that when you detach from such such tight

00:02:12--> 00:02:18

practice, you still have to make sure that you compensate whoever you violated or you

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

you wrote.

00:02:21--> 00:02:38

But when it's say whatever the situation was, then it becomes even worse. saying that it's okay outside those months, but it's worse during those months. And those four months that have been declared to be sacred, but I was kind of glad you mentioned in the command Zurich

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

tober.

00:02:42--> 00:02:46

Last time said inevitable end of life natural

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

human survival would someone said

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

I thought I heard maybe some objection.

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

That the count of the months with the loss of the island since the date he created the heaven and the earth are 12.

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

So the the number of the month in a year or 12 months,

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

there must have been

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

four of them are sacred, and those four months are offended.

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

Which is this month and the month

00:03:27--> 00:03:35

in addition to the fact that was the month of the month, where many incidents and events took place.

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

An interesting

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

connection between some of those events, like for example, once upon a time I gave victory to Moses,

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

Moses it was

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

it was the month where

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

truth

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

I would say

00:04:04--> 00:04:08

triumph over over pulsar. So Moosa

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

is also the month that some of the great people in history has stood up for the

00:04:16--> 00:04:24

for justice and for for the truth again, and we know that the same little envelope on the rest of the puzzle

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

is was killed

00:04:28--> 00:04:35

and his attempt to stand up for justice. What is right also in this month, so many things happen in the month of

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

play.

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

But also the month of

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

signifies something else that reminds us

00:04:46--> 00:04:55

of a great incident that may have not taken place in the month of April took place later in the year, but it was the most significant

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

incident or event

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

of that year. And because of that event,

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

the the that year was to be considered the first year of the Islamic calendar. With the Muslims adopted, the Muslims establish a calendar during the time of

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

day one

00:05:20--> 00:05:44

they chose that year because of the significance of that incident that took place in the third month of the year. Yet that that year since it was that year where it took place that year was considered to be the first year in Islamic calendar. And that incidents took place somewhere around COVID was the proximate

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

word Asia is

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

often translated as flight. And it is not a flight.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

This particular feature was a well calculated

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

migration.

00:06:01--> 00:06:32

Now, there were other migrations that took place before that, there were actually two in particular, that, that were temporary in nature. And they were minor compared to the issue of too many. So visual means to relocate from one place to another. And it also transformed by the way, so it has, it has to do with replacing something, or relocating or moving from one place to another, especially if it's on a permanent basis. So when it's done on a permanent,

00:06:34--> 00:06:48

so to call flight is not an accurate translation. It is rather, migration. So the people that that did that is Europe are known as immigrants from Hungary.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

This happened

00:06:51--> 00:07:01

during the days of Mecca, they were under a great level of torture and persecution by the people of Christ people.

00:07:03--> 00:07:12

So the Prophet peace be upon him, you know, was given permission to give permission to the companions to flee or to go to obsidian to get relief.

00:07:14--> 00:07:56

And that happened twice. So these are the two first ages. But compared to this one that we're talking about, they're their minor users, because not all the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him, went to the studio. And they did not go with the intention of establishing community. But they went there with the intention of finding some kind of relief, and the ability to practice their faith without having to be harassed or killed or persecuted. And it was mainly those who did not have any kind of support or protection, who did not belong to any strong tribe or clan and Mecca, that that participated. There were some exceptions to that, because some of the, you know, for

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

example, the proximate

00:07:58--> 00:07:58

cause of death

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

was amongst the people who went there. But the process of watching did not join.

00:08:06--> 00:08:52

The difference between which which makes this picture of very different from the original that we're talking about, the hero that we're talking about, is the hero to Medina, the prophet peace be upon him after he had conveyed the message and made sure that not that he loved every every door and make sure that he actually got to every tribe, every clan in Mecca started to go outside, but the majority of the people were confused. So he went outside, and he went to nearby city five people five also did not respond to the center, and then started basically presenting Islam to, to the tribes that would come to Mecca, Mecca was a central location, and people used to perform pilgrimage

00:08:52--> 00:09:03

even before Islam. And one of those seasons, the prophet had the opportunity to meet with a with a group of people from yesterday

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

that had

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

come to the province of Omaha, according to some, some

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

historians, they said that yesterday, the city of yesterday was torn,

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

because of civil

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

wars,

00:09:22--> 00:09:40

different classes of hazards. And they were looking for some kind of figure someone who would help bring some kind of reconciliation between the two and the health and reconciliation. So the process of law, but the process of also sought to convey the message that Allah Subhana Allah sent him with.

00:09:41--> 00:09:51

So when he talks to them about Islam, they remember that their neighbors, the Jews of Medina, used to tell them about a prophet who will come around that time

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

and they will follow this prophet in under his leadership, you know, the problem will come with a Divine Mercy so the people have

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

Medina, they said, Oh, this this is this must be the man that

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

our Jewish neighbors is, you know, we're telling us

00:10:09--> 00:10:17

and they were able to recognize some of the signs that they were getting. So a small group of people from Medina accepted Islam. And they went

00:10:18--> 00:10:33

and carry the message of snap to to media and the processing of sent with them some of his companions in particular, someone who was very played an instrumental role in spreading the message of Islam as a young man by the name of

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

so I went there, and the following year, the number

00:10:41--> 00:10:55

multiplied, quadrupled, maybe even more. And they came back to the Office of Law to give their pledge and they sent extended their invitation to the province in this valley to come to me and said, Now Medina is ready to accommodate.

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

The Prophet peace be upon him was not given permission from a lots of time. And this shows that his life I need someone to cement many of the steps that he took.

00:11:07--> 00:11:35

Not only were they calculated, but they were actually measured, and they were sanctioned by loss of habitat, it is a lot more teleconference Yeah, make this move, make that move, don't wait. So the process don't have to wait for permission from us. However, the capacities, many of the companions were given permission, and they were given permission to go to the city. So some of the competitors are profitable, why so start to go ahead of the Prophet peace be appointed committee, go there and settle.

00:11:36--> 00:11:51

And so I wanted to be amongst and it is it isn't, it is a sacrifice, but it's an honor, and it was known that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to you know, whenever there is a chance for them to

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

sacrifice and do something that they will deal with right away, and amongst the best of the comparison property.

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

So what we wanted to leave for the process of total weight,

00:12:07--> 00:12:13

maybe a loss of habitat as another time for you, maybe you will have an impact. And this was a hit from the prophecy.

00:12:15--> 00:12:24

So we're prepared to capitals. And he was preparing himself to accompany the prophecy love it. But he didn't know the

00:12:25--> 00:12:30

pharmacy did not say anything, he just gave him a hint. So when a worker wanted to leave,

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

the processor told him wait,

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

that's not the

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

labor laws of Canada, Allah will send you a companion, someone that will travel.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

So

00:12:46--> 00:12:56

now the Prophet peace be upon him before that had a dream. This was one of those had a dream that he will settle in Atlanta or a city that was surrounded by palm trees.

00:13:00--> 00:13:21

Later that, you know, came to be true, of course, because the city of Medina is is full of palm trees. Now, during this time, the Mexicans were getting nervous about this, this migration that is taking place, companies, people over the the Muslims are living with it.

00:13:23--> 00:13:32

And this made them nervous because to them, it was not about not having them around. It was it was about not wanting

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

them to prosper in any way or fashion.

00:13:36--> 00:13:47

And they know also that, you know, many of the companions of the leaving leave with their wealth. And they didn't want to lose that also. And they knew that as the profit center would catch up with them.

00:13:49--> 00:14:16

Right? All the process I've kept it kept it low profile, he kept his class really low profile. I mean, as a secret. Yes, the word got out that the officer may be leaving. So to them, they could stand the idea of having officers and have the backup go to Medina then establish and self establishes community there. So they came up, they came up with a plan. They got together and governmental.

00:14:17--> 00:14:29

And they flooded. And they're the father they agreed that the best thing is just to take, of course they had all kinds of plans. They said maybe we should just go and arrest him and

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

maybe we should go in and just kick them out anyway, that said no.

00:14:35--> 00:14:58

But finally they agreed to assassinate or killed with Bob some Obama do so. Now they had fear that that if they did that, that his clan or his tribe might seek revenge. So in order to overwhelm his tribe, man, as you know, they decided to take one young man from each class

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

Have them all strike the processor at the same time.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

Now we'll also have data records that

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

are at risk 30 it was

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

nice

00:15:15--> 00:15:22

when Coronavirus who loved the level of equity and remember all hammered with the, with the disbelievers were plotting

00:15:23--> 00:15:26

against you, to restrain you,

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

kill you, or fix you.

00:15:30--> 00:15:38

And they fly and a lot also flat. And a lot of the visit planners, they were finding the lowest credit and

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

the promises and it was informed of their of their plots.

00:15:45--> 00:16:08

So let's pick out a class. And they plot. So just always remember this, always, no matter what it is that you're facing, or you're dealing with, no matter what it is that you're going through. Remember that a lot of data is in control, and that a law is watching the loss of habitat and Almighty knows of what is happening. Right. And a lot has its place.

00:16:10--> 00:16:16

Now, if a must have a plan for you, is to let things happen,

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

then, that is your

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

there's nothing you can do to change it or to alter it or to if a muscle

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

if it's not meant to happen in philosophy, God's plan is different no matter what and who it is that they're trying,

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

no matter what kind of forces come together against you, nothing will happen.

00:16:40--> 00:16:53

You know, and this applies to everything that is beyond our control, including death by that because sometimes we get those panic attacks, right, we think we are going to die or something, you start you know, your heart starts racing and you start music, you have panic attacks. And

00:16:55--> 00:16:55

and you think

00:16:57--> 00:17:20

about something that we many of us don't realize is that when it's time to die, or it's time to, for something to happen, you're not going to maybe even feel it or or recognize it. It's just gonna happen, and you will be shown a piece. But you know, earlier there Mohan said something very interesting. He said that I am an mot I fell in

00:17:22--> 00:17:36

love with him. He was always calm and contented. He says which of my which of those two days mean he's using poetry, but he said which which of my two days I try, or I attempt to escape death.

00:17:37--> 00:18:18

Like your today today, for example, is one of two days. Right? Either the day, the person, the date, he says is either the day I will die, or the day out, I'm not gonna die. If it's the day I'm destined to die, there's nothing I can do to escape to escape that. And if it's the day that I am not meant to die, right? So what's, what's the word all about? And why should Why should I worry? So, and one should deal with almost everything in the same fashion. Likewise, if you have any difficulty or any hardship that is coming your way, remember that lots of content says that approximately seven said well

00:18:20--> 00:18:26

remember that whatever befalls you, whatever happens to you, was not going to miss you.

00:18:27--> 00:18:27

When

00:18:30--> 00:18:40

you have missed or that would have missed you was not going to you know before it was not going to happen to you. So no need to panic, no need for you to worry.

00:18:42--> 00:18:46

Just be prepared, and do your best.

00:18:47--> 00:19:07

So lots of data says that they plot but lots of data that's in the last column that is the best plan that I had another plan for the Prophet peace be upon him. Now, as they have found it. They came together so two, and they surrounded the the resident residents of prophecy

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

with sores in their heads, now the prophets

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

received the rest of gibreel actually

00:19:15--> 00:19:28

came to the Prophet peace be upon a careful prophet. And he said to me, I'm a Methodist before she can do that tonight. Do not spend the night do not sleep on your on your mat mattress over on your bed.

00:19:30--> 00:19:40

So the Prophet peace be upon him left that day, early that day, during around noon, he left and he was he had his face covered.

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

And he went to a worker to work as

00:19:45--> 00:19:53

a worker knew that there was something up because this is not a time where the processor would come to them. So the Prophet peace be upon him talk to the worker and he told him

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

he said I was given permission to make

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

a lot of happen.

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

For the last half hour gave me permission to.

00:20:05--> 00:20:21

So honestly, I will love and companionship I would love to be here. And your company. So powerful allies have said yes. And that's what I started to cry with them on and said, I never thought that one would cry out of joy.

00:20:23--> 00:20:38

Except that, you know, until that day when I saw him cry out of those were tears of joy. So we woke up on them. I said, honestly, what I have prepared from Campbell's for this purpose, he was just waiting for this. But the process of insisted on paying the price.

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

They hired

00:20:43--> 00:20:53

a man they hired, who was actually an ideology, he was from the pagans of Mecca, or from the neighboring tribes. But he was known for his ability to,

00:20:54--> 00:21:06

to guide them through through the desert, and they took a route. They did not take the regular route that caravans usually take from Mecca to Medina, they took a different route.

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

And approximal was instructed me

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

to sleep

00:21:12--> 00:21:50

in his place and cover himself with the process of aligning incentives. The farmer had a sheep that or some kind of upper garment that he used to wear to cover himself with it, and spend the night because every time they try to look through, they see they see someone covered. And they thought the possibility was in the meanwhile, the problem went back got his stuff. And he left the house while they were surrounding the place. They were blinded, they had not seen now in order for them to recognize that something happened during that time when they were blinded the Prophet peace be upon him took some some sad

00:21:51--> 00:21:54

pics, some set and he put someone there on their heads.

00:21:55--> 00:22:07

Now the process of sending what someone said made a very interesting comment, he said, they were carrying swords and spears and all kinds of weapons, the proxy will lie to you send a period nothing but his faith. And some sad that has happened.

00:22:09--> 00:22:28

And this in this there is a great lesson for all of us. And there is also an answer to those people who accuse or claim of the process. And, you know, when after that was the process of of caring for the world was a message of guidance, message that that brought that

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

brought peace.

00:22:32--> 00:22:46

So and this is what he carried out of his of his place of residence. And he walked away. And he made his way out a lot of how God has guaranteed that he would protect the property until he delivers his message.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

So the properties were part of made his way out,

00:22:51--> 00:23:16

went to work. Brother Campbell went with your guide. And instead of going north, they went south towards the amount known as Phil, where they stayed, they spent three nights there. Now the Meccans Of course, in the morning, we realize nothing happened. The Broken to the residents approximately seven to find any of them on sleeping.

00:23:18--> 00:23:21

So they left empty handed.

00:23:22--> 00:23:36

And they decided to chase the profit. And they initially they went north looking for the Prophet peace be upon it. And then they figured that there there are no signs there's nothing. They went through all kinds of

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

you know, there were no tracks.

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

So they thought maybe the process itself so they went

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

and they were able to actually get to the to the cave where possible normally send them in a book or hiding.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

And they stood right by the entrance of the cave.

00:23:55--> 00:24:10

They did not see the Prophet peace be upon him or a work. That's with a loss of habitat actually talks about in the app. As soon as COVID surah nine verse, verse 40, loss of habitat it says

00:24:13--> 00:24:14

in

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

as Native American well

00:24:19--> 00:24:39

welcome got nervous, not really for his for his own safety, but he was nervous that something might happen to the properties people might do some harm. So he was nervous and he looked at the property and he said if any one of them looked down at his feet, he will be able to spot us. So the process was very convoluted over time. He said

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

what do you think of with

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

with us, protecting us we don't have to worry.

00:24:48--> 00:24:55

Now once upon a time I mentioned that in the Quran and verse 40 of surah nine if you just go back to it

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

so now they couldn't see the Prophet indicate

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

This is the second miracle half international this this journey, right?

00:25:06--> 00:25:15

Then Then, of course, go back in the process and then, you know, makes his way out of the cave, and he continues his way to Medina. Now,

00:25:16--> 00:25:50

up until this point, there is a lesson for all of us, which is the fact that the promise of a solid plan. And he planned very well, he had a plan, and he executed, you know, someone could have said, Why did the process and then have to really, you know, keep the secret and worker and then hire a guide and do all of this, he actually planted he went south instead of going north, and then they took a different route other than that route that you normally care about will take, he did all of these things, all these precautions were taken by the province.

00:25:51--> 00:26:04

And that is a lesson for us teachers that we have to do our part. And this is the proper concept of this is the proper way of doing what is known as reliance

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

on the last

00:26:07--> 00:26:31

you have to do your part, and then depend on the last, or as you do your part when you rely on a lot. Because no matter how careful you are, if something was meant to happen, it will happen. If something was not meant to happen, and what happened no matter, but you still have to do your part. So no one is to say that Oh, no need for me to do anything, no need for me to no need for me to,

00:26:32--> 00:27:16

you know, think no need for me to worry, and not do anything just waiting for things to happen on their own. That's not how it works. That's not how it works, you have to have full reliance on what you have to believe you have to trust, your trust has to be in our data with a loss of data. But at the same time, we have to do your part, whatever you're capable of doing, because it wasn't counted against your abilities and talents to be used. And that was against skills, including survival skills, for them to be used, not to be tossed and not to be ignored for them to be used as soon

00:27:17--> 00:27:51

as you use them. And then once you have done your part, then the rest is with a muscle that success is in hand in hand with that. So the Prophet did that. But at the end of was showing us that ultimately, it was the winner of a loss of habitat. Just like what happened with Fontainebleau Sally's, I mean, if you if you see this, this is the mother of his mother put it puts him in. First of all, she breastfeeds him enough unless you put them in a basket, she you know covers them very well. And then she puts the cart the the the basket in the river.

00:27:52--> 00:27:52

Right?

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

If he's meant to be protected, she could have just tossed him. And I'll take care of his turn into a mermaid or something.

00:28:05--> 00:28:08

She has to do her part. And then the rest is upon us.

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

Leave the rest. But do your part, do the best you can do.

00:28:23--> 00:28:28

This is a very, very important lesson because many of us fail to plan.

00:28:29--> 00:28:40

And then we suffer the consequences of our failure. And then we say Oh, it was available, I guess it wasn't meant to be it wasn't meant to happen.

00:28:45--> 00:28:55

And sometimes we might even try to blame our failure on external factors. Other you know, it's, it's someone else's, some kind of magic is some kind of

00:28:56--> 00:29:03

hazard is, you know, all kinds of things that we we, we attribute our failure to.

00:29:05--> 00:29:17

So we have to do our part, and then, you know, show full certainty. And the problem is, you know, you'll find that people who clap. You see, this is where many people fail. Even there are people who plan,

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

they plan very well and they execute very well.

00:29:23--> 00:29:29

Their problem ever is that they rely on their planning and their execution of their skills.

00:29:30--> 00:29:37

You should never rely on that. You should never rely on that you rely on muscle that you trusted enough in a lot.

00:29:38--> 00:29:48

And this is this is the this is the dilemma that many people find. And you find people who say oh, I rely on once upon a time or I trust I put my trust in a lot. They don't.

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

You have to have both

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

plan

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

and you realize or you know, you depend on almost kind of that

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

Trust is in a loss of habitat.

00:30:04--> 00:30:08

And this is the this is something very difficult, you know, this this combination

00:30:09--> 00:30:18

is very difficult to be achieved. So that is that should be the struggle of a believer. I plan yet I don't rely on my planning, because no matter how shall

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

I

00:30:22--> 00:30:34

and then I'm content with the consequent with anything that happens with the results. Now, the process of love finding a synonym, of course makes it to Medina on his way to Medina, something happens with Soraka.

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

Now, my

00:30:38--> 00:31:00

so the process of finding that makes it too many, and this is really what we need to reflect on. What did the what did this this Hydra, this migration? What did it mean? And what did they do? Because the first things, those things that the President did his priorities would, will tell you what the history was all

00:31:01--> 00:31:13

right, it will tell you what the hegemon was all about. First of all, why don't people suddenly like Allah subhanaw taala. This shows us that the message of the prophecy is universal.

00:31:15--> 00:31:31

The problem was not sent to his his tribe. He was not sent to the house. He was not sent to a specific group of people he was sent. And his message was universal. And he was sent to everyone I must

00:31:39--> 00:31:54

say all Mohammed, all mankind sorted out, first of all, all mankind. Indeed, I am the messenger of a lot to all of you, from him, to Whom belongs the dominion of the heaven. And the earth.

00:31:55--> 00:32:01

There is no god except him. He gives life and causes death.

00:32:03--> 00:32:10

This is this is why the monks SLM had to leave Mecca, because once he had finished delivering the message of snaps in America,

00:32:11--> 00:32:38

right? Now he has the responsibility of going beyond Americans and delivering the message. And if that meant for him to relocate, and leave his beloved city, because one one actually incident rather than highlight was that as he was leaving went to the process in them, it was a very painful, painful process. It was very painful for the processor to lean back in and he looked at work and he said, Allah knows that you are the most beloved city on earth to me.

00:32:40--> 00:32:45

And had your people not forced me out of you, I would have not left you,

00:32:47--> 00:33:02

as anyone that goes to Mecca, right, cannot help it to fall in love with my kids. Imagine if you were born and born and raised in Mecca, and he went through a lot of things, you know, the proximal audience and the many of his friends and many of his family members, his wife.

00:33:04--> 00:33:20

And his two sons, you know, died. And they were buried there. So there are a lot of memories, his attachment to America was, was tremendous. But he had to give up all of that, because he had a mission, he had a message to deliver, and so much,

00:33:21--> 00:34:01

and with the methods became an obstacle, and they wouldn't benefit from the message themselves, the process would have had to go beyond that, because his message was not to the messages only, but to the world. So he had to deliver that message and go out. So this is a reminder, Asia is a reminder of the of the universality of the message of Islam. And the reason I'm saying this in highlighting this is because we have to remember this, the Prophet and his companions, left America because they did not have freedom to worship, and to practice their faith where they could find they went to a place where they could find that freedom, to practice and establish and, and, and live their lives

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

as Muslims.

00:34:03--> 00:34:07

And this is similar to what happened with those of us who are immigrants here who came to America.

00:34:09--> 00:34:19

And we have to keep that in mind. Remember, that we have a mission, and we have a message and we have principles and values that are universal that should be shared.

00:34:20--> 00:34:23

And the best way to share them is to practice that commitment.

00:34:24--> 00:34:36

And remember that you are whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, whether you are aware of it or not, you are a carrier of that message, you are either passive, a passive member or an active

00:34:37--> 00:34:50

nonetheless, you are part of it. So either you are representing the wrong sort of audience here, because keep this in mind. Imagine if the problem lies that if something happened in the world in America was the best place for the Muslims to live.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

Right and prophecy was living now with us and he came from America and he came to Orange County.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

We would have had had no

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

option but to follow Him and come here and be around him, right? Right,

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

then would it would it be,

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

you know, acceptable for any Muslim to say Yeah, but you know, I'm

00:35:14--> 00:35:49

an interior designer and got nothing to really share or contribute to the community. So I'm gonna stay behind, I'm just gonna show up once a week to do my prayer that said, people would have had no no option but to come and be faithful, I'm talking about faithful people who really love and, and devoted, you know, who have devotion for the process. And they would come and show more often and and say, How can I help with interior designer? How can I throw my expertise? How can I help? Because, you know, how can I help convey this message or, or,

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

you know, share this message with others.

00:35:54--> 00:36:00

So, let's just keep that in mind that we are whether we like it or not, we are the representatives of

00:36:02--> 00:36:05

we could be representatives or terrible representatives.

00:36:09--> 00:36:11

This is also a reminder that that

00:36:13--> 00:36:29

this Dean was established on sacrifices. And those sacrifices were made, even by the purpose of the law, and he said them in his capacities, many sacrifices were made. So you have to make you have to sacrifice something, you have to give up something.

00:36:32--> 00:36:39

Now, our our immigration, you know, is often it's not to sacrifice but this is to gain.

00:36:41--> 00:36:56

So far, we're not all we're saying. All I'm saying. This point is that I'm not asking you to give up anything, I'm asking you to appreciate what you have gained muscle, the progenitors of the the the the freedom and the envy.

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

And all

00:37:00--> 00:37:10

the all the chances that we must have that is giving utilize us joy, sacrifice, and don't give them up use it to make a difference in the world. That's all.

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

Okay, and of course, there's a great lesson for us in the

00:37:21--> 00:37:21

and how

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:28--> 00:37:34

People back at work and others, how they love the process of the process, here they were.

00:37:37--> 00:37:41

But what I wanted to focus on is what did the process of myself do when needed?

00:37:42--> 00:37:51

Because that will tell you what the whole journey what this sacrifice with this whole event was all about. So what did the President do when he came to the deal?

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

What did you do?

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

So the first thing that he did the first item,

00:38:00--> 00:38:14

of course, the purpose of his of his, of the journey was to convey the message and, you know, the fact that the message of Islam is universal. So the first thing that he did, the first item of his agenda was to establish a message.

00:38:15--> 00:38:25

So as soon before he even found a place for, for himself and for his family, a place of residence before he even found a place.

00:38:26--> 00:38:35

You know, I'm talking about both like temporary or permanent place of residence, the first thing he did, he said, one semester, let's just put that was built

00:38:36--> 00:38:37

within three days.

00:38:41--> 00:39:01

And then he moves further into the city of Medina. But let's just go back for that, and outside of the outskirts of Midian, because there was a Muslim community there. So he built for them and he came and they were on his way, he built a message for you. And then he moved he continued further inside Medina, where, where he lived.

00:39:03--> 00:39:09

And the first thing is that they found a spot that was suitable to do the machine and everything

00:39:10--> 00:39:16

had to come around that machine. So everything first dimension is built in them, the residents are the promise of a lot

00:39:18--> 00:39:28

near the machine, and then the competitor, the process has started to either build houses or move near the messages, or some of them, you know, have to start to buy properties and lands on the machine.

00:39:29--> 00:39:39

And the community was established around the machines. So this shows us the importance of a message and the message has to be the first thing to be established.

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

Usually people wait until they establish themselves.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

So not only building the machine but maintaining the machine.

00:39:49--> 00:39:56

Not only establishing the machine establishing the institution, but actually maintaining it with activities and programs and

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

using the message for what it is

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

For the five daily prayers,

00:40:03--> 00:40:08

right? So maybe one day is and we have talked in the past about the

00:40:09--> 00:40:29

about the role of the machine. And that's not what I'm trying to talk about today. What are the roles, but the importance of the machine? Now, why am I saying this, because some of us choose to stay away from the machine, some people like to say, to be as far as possible from the machine, because they just don't want to mess with the community. They don't want to be here.

00:40:30--> 00:40:50

Right, or they like areas maybe. And this is a problem only when we plan as a community, we have to keep this in mind. The mesh, it has to be built in a residential area, residential area area that is suitable for people that has that in a in an area that has good a

00:40:52--> 00:41:02

good school district, all these things have to be taken into consideration. Usually Muslim communities, what do they do, they choose the cheapest area

00:41:04--> 00:41:11

to build a machine why because just want to go. And they don't live there. They live away from the machine. So they come to the machine once once a week,

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

once or twice.

00:41:15--> 00:41:34

So the machine is really not, not the nucleus of the community. And this is this is not the prophetic model. So this has to be another reason I'm mentioning this is because if you're far from the machine, then you might need to relocate and consider you might want to do an internal digital, or like a minor.

00:41:35--> 00:41:47

Because if you live far from the machine, and you just come once a year to the read prayer, and you consider that like the greatest. Some people like they might even pray,

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

they travel traveled like an hour

00:41:52--> 00:41:56

to go to the masjid and bring your family to visit once a year.

00:41:58--> 00:42:32

Chances are that within 10, within few years, you're going to lose that family, you're not going to have a family, that family that you bring once a year to the machine because you live too far from the machine, you're probably not going to have a family, it is domestic and the community and the congregation that will help you maintain this family. So you have to come and if that means that you need to come closer to the machine and move near the machine. So, how to do this, once the machine was down the competitors were competing and buying properties around machine and building houses the closer the better.

00:42:34--> 00:42:38

So and my my recommendation is that you should be in case

00:42:39--> 00:42:48

in case there is an increase, there is like a crazy increase in the oil prices. We should be within a walking distance from a machine.

00:42:55--> 00:43:08

But it is very important to consider to consider the machine not part but the most the most critical part of the community and the family's life. Okay.

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

So that's the first thing that approximates the lesson that happened to Medina, what did he do, he built another machine.

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

The second project that the prophet SAW Selim had was to

00:43:24--> 00:43:31

to bring peace between the various tribes that were fighting whether the Muslim donor

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

to establish establish peace amongst those

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

tribes that were or clans that were fighting. And there was

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

there was a treaty that was that was that was agreed upon. And there was a truce that was administered by the province.

00:43:52--> 00:44:11

If there is no peace, there is no committee, I don't care how many machines you have, there is no piece of fashion that are fighting, whether the two boards are two, two class or two, whatever it is, you have to make sure that that that all that is settled.

00:44:12--> 00:44:19

Right. So this is one of those top priorities for anyone that wants to establish a community need to bring peace

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

between the massage or within the same machine.

00:44:25--> 00:44:25

Alright.

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

The third

00:44:29--> 00:44:36

item on the agenda, the problem was, was to establish some kind of an agreement between the Muslims,

00:44:37--> 00:44:48

the residents, the Muslim residents of Medina and the non residents, including the Jews. And there was a treaty that was that was agreed upon what are the terms? How now how do we coexist peacefully?

00:44:50--> 00:44:55

How can I you know, how can we make sure that everybody has the opportunity to, to,

00:44:56--> 00:44:57

to live their lives

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

and to so this was Gary

00:45:01--> 00:45:02

And this was established

00:45:04--> 00:45:08

by a council wiser so the initiative was taken by the Council.

00:45:10--> 00:45:20

So this is very important in a peaceful coexistence. Because only if there is peaceful coexistence would anyone be able to establish

00:45:22--> 00:45:26

a family or establish a community or establish a system.

00:45:27--> 00:45:40

And this was very important in establishing the Islamic community and establishing the system. That's how it's fairly strict. So the processor left to finish it in doing that.

00:45:43--> 00:45:49

Actually, before all of these things are right after the machine, there was one very important process approximately,

00:45:50--> 00:46:22

after bringing those fighting clients together, the processing impaired, the Mahajan and the answer, and the process known as an washa. So the immigrants, each one of the immigrants was assigned to one of the unsought and the outside became basically the official title of the residents of Medina who accommodated those who came from outside. So the process and impair the compassion. So immigrant is assigned to an Sati

00:46:23--> 00:46:36

Sati needs to help her to take care of her look after him. They both add the immigrant recently, as the Mohegan has something to share with Sony as well, he's not going to become a burden on him, but he has something to share what

00:46:38--> 00:46:38

what do you think of it?

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

Because

00:46:43--> 00:47:29

over the outside because they, they, you know, most of them have more knowledge about Islam. So this was this was the idea. Was that done by the early immigrants here? What is it even being done as we speak now. So we have to take this into consideration. You cannot build a community until you bring some kind of harmony. And you know, and and you build a bond between the immigrants and the indigenous, you know, Muslims, this is not happening. We don't find that immigrants basically having programs and activities where they teach, where they share where they help, and we don't have you know, much going on on the other side either. So that has to

00:47:30--> 00:47:52

everybody's just doing it on their own. That's why we don't have real brotherhood the bond that like that's why when we read examples of some of the stories that happen like between Oklahoma and Arkansas the VSOs are shocked really sad when you're being offered one of his two properties to club ramen now at no cost nothing.

00:47:54--> 00:47:59

And what did he do, he took advantage of that generosity of Southern Vietnamese.

00:48:01--> 00:48:02

And their bond was

00:48:07--> 00:48:35

that he made when he had to move to the outskirts of Medina, he made a deal with one of with an outside a neighbor of his his he said you go one day I go one day, it's too far to go too hard to go to the machine every day. So you go one day learn see what comes from the way from the process a lot isn't it we attend the salon everything I look after your family and after your property, you come at the end of the day you share everything with me the next day I do the same thing.

00:48:39--> 00:48:49

Sometimes we don't even exchange phone numbers, we're kind of we don't even know much about each other. So that has to change in order for me to be established. That bond has to be created

00:48:50--> 00:49:01

that network has to be established. And we saw this year we have a plan to do that to work on here. Start all kinds of network one of those products that were suggested it was very

00:49:03--> 00:49:30

it's a simple project but very beneficial was to start some kind of phone messaging service where you get you know you sign up for this service where you get text message on your on your cell phone of any sporting event or incident that that takes place in the community. If there's funeral you get a text message saying that there's janazah prayer tomorrow at one 115

00:49:31--> 00:49:45

so just a second in some communities they started a wake up call system. Just get give people a wake up call for a preacher prayer. So that way you have a larger or a better turnout for for the film.

00:49:50--> 00:49:50

Okay.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

So these are some of the prophetic projects that took place in Medina. Now. Now

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

We know what the immigration or what the migration was all about why the process is, right.

00:50:06--> 00:50:23

Because of this. So now one has to really in order for this to count for us, we did any new order for our existence anywhere, where we have all kinds of facilities to count for us. In order for us to reap the fruits and and

00:50:24--> 00:50:30

get the reward, we have to maybe change our attention, we have to rethink about

00:50:32--> 00:50:34

what was the purpose of our existence here?

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

While we go

00:50:38--> 00:50:40

to the American dream,

00:50:41--> 00:50:44

beautiful big huge house a nice car and play golf

00:50:46--> 00:50:47

and smoke cigars?

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

Is that the plan?

00:50:53--> 00:51:02

Is this what we gave them, you know, many things or we left our homelands? What made us leave? So we have to really think of

00:51:03--> 00:51:16

what was this? I mean, what are we doing with our lives? This is a question that we have to ask, what deserves all of the sacrifices that we make? Some people say it's for my children? Where are your children?

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

Some of the questions

00:51:19--> 00:51:23

and sometimes we make sacrifices for things are not really worth it.

00:51:25--> 00:51:27

You know, things are really not worth it.

00:51:29--> 00:51:30

So

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

and our lifestyle or, you know,

00:51:35--> 00:51:42

will tell tell us what, what our lives or what our sacrifices are all about.

00:51:43--> 00:51:46

So inshallah, as we shall, hopefully will take this,

00:51:47--> 00:51:55

this event is the history of the practice of law, as a source of inspiration for us to

00:51:57--> 00:52:04

to start again, I mean, this is the beginning of the year, this is the third day, Michelle law, you can come up with all kinds of plans for the rest of this year.

00:52:06--> 00:52:10

And make your your intention to show off budget to make a difference and change things.

00:52:15--> 00:52:29

Well, you kind of asked, let me start with the second question, because you kind of answered the question in New York. And you gave the answer for that for the question that you asked. Medina was where Islam was, was established where the community was established, were the companions there.

00:52:31--> 00:52:36

See, that's why it's very important to understand and realize, I would

00:52:38--> 00:52:41

move to Jerusalem, he went to pick him up.

00:52:43--> 00:52:49

He was very passionate. This is a ladder, you know, he went with the expeditions that went to that that line and then he settled with

00:52:51--> 00:52:56

a Buddha and some other fans who were paired, they were both, they were looking after each other. So

00:53:01--> 00:53:09

it's a matter of policy at that point, I think. He went in for Darwin for the same purpose. But he went to whatever

00:53:10--> 00:53:12

he went, he went through now.

00:53:15--> 00:53:15

He said,

00:53:18--> 00:53:30

he said, Why don't you come and join me and, and come and live in the sacred land, the Holy Land. So he invited him to the Holy Land. So model the lawn, who wrote a letter back to the gun, he said,

00:53:31--> 00:53:31

alive.

00:53:37--> 00:53:51

He said, what makes a man holy, is not the land on which he lives. It is rather his character and his deeds. That's what makes him home. So, yes, Mecca is indeed you know, says, you know, sacred and most sacred

00:53:53--> 00:54:10

land and all the Muslims loved it. But Medina was was the capital of Israel, and a loss of mentor to be to be the capitalist. So the promise was made in the capital to show the importance of, of what took place in Medina, the establishment of the community and the character building that

00:54:12--> 00:54:16

remains to play that role for a long time. If you look at

00:54:20--> 00:54:31

the profit center, was it well, this will this will, this takes us to the first question, the profit center was guided and all of his actions are guided and any of those actions where he acted on his own. He was either

00:54:33--> 00:54:51

approved His judgment or his choices were either approved or they were corrected. And we know of many incidents where the positive seven choices or judgments were corrected. Right, but most of them will correct him or will show him or will tell him what was better than that, in that in that regard.

00:54:52--> 00:55:00

So it is indeed In fact, when the candle in Medina when the problem arrived, and the

00:55:00--> 00:55:15

The people of Medina are very generous until this day actually, they're very generous. Everybody wanted to basically grab the cattle and host the properties to find what everybody wants to be the most of the Prophet. So the part of peace be upon told them, Leave it, leave it, don't have more.

00:55:16--> 00:55:20

Leave it alone. What It Is it has been inspired.

00:55:21--> 00:55:28

So the camera was inspired and possible love it and send them let the camera go around and where the camera went.

00:55:29--> 00:55:32

And actually Neil was wearing the machine.

00:55:33--> 00:55:36

So so the cameras actually died.

00:55:37--> 00:55:50

And it chose In fact, they might they say that the camel Neil from left to another spot, Neil and basically that that area that Square was chosen was was marked as location.

00:55:57--> 00:56:03

just learned was given by Mexicans to them or any familiar like Assad was known

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

for fighting.

00:56:07--> 00:56:13

The people in Medina were made of two main major tribes or major major clans, house and feathers.

00:56:14--> 00:56:27

And before the props on last before immigration, before the prophet SAW sent him to the moon, and him calling the Mossad and then the poor and of course later came and established, further approve that name. Before that the name was

00:56:28--> 00:56:30

literally unsolved, unsolved.

00:56:33--> 00:56:39

Se helper or aid, aid or help someone a provider of aid or help is called

00:56:42--> 00:56:47

supporter so it means supporter, a helper.

00:56:50--> 00:56:59

Yes. So and somehow became, it became almost an honor to be an apostle, I pray for the onslaught of lots of high praise the

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

same thing. So it became to

00:57:03--> 00:57:11

people who are at that point, even hydrate or I'm sorry, one of the and then of course, after, after the opening of Mecca,

00:57:13--> 00:57:15

they were no more, no more.

00:57:16--> 00:57:25

I mean, the onslaught of course, and ready to send us maintain that status or that thing, and the same thing with them, but there was no more Pedro so

00:57:26--> 00:57:33

that, you know, that marriage was, so people were Muslim, or either someone who came from outside the principal

00:57:35--> 00:57:39

or someone who, who was from the, from the people of India, that person,

00:57:41--> 00:57:51

shall we will have to conclude, but I just wanted to tell you that I show up going to be starting, we're going to have one, An Introduction session, and then we're going to have three, three.

00:57:52--> 00:58:07

From now until the end of April, shallow, there will be three sessions about Islamic etiquettes, all Islamic etiquettes, and then we'll try to, I'll try to present it in a way that that makes it interesting. And we'll pass out.

00:58:09--> 00:58:18

I want you to take notes, and I will give out a summary of those sub headings, the idea is shown in this first

00:58:20--> 00:58:22

quarter of the year, is to

00:58:24--> 00:59:01

create some kind of project for the parents to work with their children, we talk to the children about certain things and about, you know, parents, you know, the rights of the parents and being the person that approximates that. And we talked to the parents, we talked with the children about that we talked to the parents about all the crisis and all the challenges that their children are having. Now what we want to do is I want to say okay, these are the Islamic edits, let's all practice them. But this is what you need to be reinforcing and teaching your children so many of them already start reinforcing or teaching them those, those edits, and we'll discuss different ways of teaching them

00:59:01--> 00:59:20

and helping helping them commit to those edits, your children and your children and his children your virtual rep will all be learning the same thing. So, when they come here, they will they will hopefully be able to help everybody will be on the same wavelength Am I making any sense? So,

00:59:22--> 00:59:25

what is that? A Yes, exactly.

00:59:26--> 00:59:37

So, we will have a series of talks on the assignment etiquettes and, you know, give the evidence for each one. So instead of just talking and also that will help a separate

00:59:38--> 00:59:53

culture from you know, the cultural principles from the, from the cyber person. So hope hopefully Shama will go home after after the sessions and focus on the Islamic teachings because there's plenty there's enough in them

00:59:54--> 00:59:59

and that way, it will make sense for for for the children and everybody will be learning the same thing.

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

So hopefully shallow this will be successful Friday. I'm looking forward to it. I'm so excited about it. And I'm and I look forward to work with you on a show.
