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

So, we're on the site here.

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

And

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

so what I wanted to kind of maybe put a reminder forward about is the Hutchinson WA, which is the last speech of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And in many ways, one of the most important speeches is ever done. Okay? And it was done on the day, a lot of fun fact. And in that speech, power law, you'll find that he covers so there's so much coverage of different subjects. In that particular speech where the Prophet Mohammed Salah Isilon made this kind of final grand speech. And he made that speech in front of 124,000 people. And I remember, we talked about how the Prophet, and the companions were being tortured to Mecca, and how they were forced into secrecy to the terms of

00:00:46--> 00:01:28

like, professing their faith and so on and so forth. So from those humble beginnings, the Prophet Muhammad Rasul, Allah went all the way to be able to preach Islam, to 124,000 people, which if you think about the population of the world at the time was a massive crowd, 124,000 people in this side, when a prophet was talking about things, and what did he mention? What did he want us to know? What the things were the themes that he wanted us to kind of ponder on, in his speech, where the Sahaba themselves, they realized that this might be the very last speech of the Bahamas Alliance, Allah. So he talks about things which are very pertinent to both on both a macro level on a macro

00:01:28--> 00:02:15

level, he talks about river, he talks about interests, he talks about, so hate monotheism, he talks about family rights and women's rights, he talks about racism, he talks about all the things that the West took, you know, 1400 years to kind of catch up on let's be honest about it. So panola Yes, hello, luck. So, number one, Bahama, for example, we focused on tohei, and the prayers and so on and so forth. Well, he also talks about the removal of je Leah the ways in which the people of the pre Islamic ages to upgrade. And in particular, he talks about Riba which is interest based systems. And he says that all of the river is no more all of the river, all of the interest is to be kind of

00:02:16--> 00:02:40

stricken off. Now we don't we don't deal with those ways. And this strikes at the heart of the capitalistic system as Muslims, we're not capitalists, were not profit maximizers who don't believe in redistribution, you know, the Prophet told us there are ways in which you can make a halal earning, there are ways in which you can deal with people and, and benefit them and be benefited by them. Well, the Quran even says what

00:02:42--> 00:03:21

Allah has allowed trade, but he has not allowed is not allowed interest. Why did the Prophet mentioned and emphasize this, because he knew, as he mentioned, that there will come a time when he will cover everything. And he actually mentioned this in the Hadith. And he said that no one time or interest will cover absolutely everything to the extent whereby you won't be able to shake yourself from the dustbin. And you have to try your best to keep away from it as much as possible. And which is a lesson to us in the West as Muslims, because that's one of the fifth and for us, we think about mortgages, we think about loans with interest, and so on and so forth. The prophet in his very final

00:03:21--> 00:03:37

sermon in front of 134,000 people made it a point of concentration of emphasis, when he also talks about what women's rights was supposed to be saying, hey, Ron, he said, Be good to your wives. He said, Go to your wives and wives, because he said,

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

Yes.

00:03:41--> 00:04:22

Because he said that you have taken them with a covenant of Allah subhanaw taala. Now you imagine this, where the Prophet has limited time, and he has limited subject matters to talk about, why is he choosing, he's choosing the things which if they go wrong, society will crumble. For example, if society chooses as the West, then you're gonna have incredible grooming and kind of a bust as you do in the western economic system. If society chooses to have domestic problems, especially when women are mistreated, then you're gonna have problems in that society. And it took the West so much time to come to a conclusion that some kind of women's rights are required by the prophet talked about

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

that for a long time ago. You know,

00:04:25--> 00:04:48

he talks what else he talked about, as we said, racism, racism, right. We said that there's no difference between a white man and a black man. And he said this also when you go to Mecca, when you opened up my car and you stood in front of the Kaaba, and Bilaal down the front of the Kaaba, he was a black man, who, in fact, was being whipped and hurt by those individuals and he was screaming and shouting.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

But then he came to the time he came when he was doing the event. So I love the same voice, which was in humiliation became the voice of

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

franchise, the voice of authority? Yes, he did the event proclaiming the trophies that he was proclaimed proclaiming in a situation of desperation, both in America as a black man in front of all of those tribal individuals. And in fact, some Arabs of the non Muslims were saying, why is this black man to Allah? How could you be the one over us like this? And this shows you the extent to which Islam came to abolish slavery and abolish racism and those things? Yes. So you have to understand something.

00:05:34--> 00:05:49

In that last speech, he gave us so much hope. He gave us so much points of concentration. And as a homework, what we should do is go back to that speech, where he did an alpha, where he spoke in front of 134,000 people and revise those points of consideration.
