and welcome to the learning admins who want to stay in or want to start.
We're not going to be learning Shoreham phocoena will say you have to have Medina yeah de la HuFa la mobila. When will you believe it? I heard the law. What should you know, law what the whole last year he was shadow ana Muhammadan. Abdu, who will sue the horse on the law who and he were early, he was so happy he was an amateur Sleeman kathira. And that so we, we, this is this halacha we said is about the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in this series, inshallah we'll explore the sequences of the events that happened during the life of Allah's Messenger SallAllahu and he was in London.
So we're still talking prior to the birth of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And do you still remember where we left off last time?
We stopped at the fact that
had one son that was a hadith and obviously he made the DUA that Allah gives him more children and he wanted specifically number 10 He wanted 10 Children 10 sons specifically.
And he said If Allah gives me 10 sons, I will slaughter sacrifice one of them, for him for him.
And we said this is called another or or the oath now in Islam another another is mcru is disliked to make another who say If Allah gives me this, I'm going to do this for him. This kind of making condition on Allah. Okay is macro is disliked. Yet if you do it, if you say if Allah gives me a car, for example, this cars if Allah enables me to buy this car, gonna give to avoid Masjid $500 donations.
Okay, it becomes binding, you have to fulfill it, you have to fulfill it. Anyway, this happened prior to Islam, so I've never taught him said If Allah gives me 10 sons, I will sacrifice one of them for him.
When he gets
10 sons, now he's stuck. So you start searching for an exit, asks those fortune tellers, those sorcerers trying to get a solution at the beginning he didn't get any solution, but one of those sources told him that you can do is because the DHEA, which is the blood money of a person at that time, if you kill a person by mistake, there's something called DHEA that you pay to the family. Okay, blood money. So the blood money at that time for one person was 10 camels was equal to 10 camels. So they said okay, you offered 10 camels. And then you cast the lots again, the lots are some sort of like it's like tossing a coin.
It has lots of the lots fall on the camels, then that's it, you have saved your son. If they fell on your son, you have to do it again. Keep the first 10 camels and add another 10 on top and keep repeating the process until the lots are cast on the Cameron's. So he did that.
So he started with
cast casting the lots of doulas here 10 camels are here it falls on Abdullah and we said is Abdullah our first one he said I'm gonna slaughter my one of my kids. He made a cause the loss first and it fell on Abdullah. So now he wants to save Abdullah. So that's the way out the sorcerer gave him. So the lats first fell on Abdullah. He repeated the process second time for don't have to login. Third time when I have to login fourth time, fifth time and I'm the login. So it seems like a never ending process. ninth time falls on Abdullah now he has 90 camels on one side and Abdullah still there and he has to do it in the 10th time. And he obviously he wants to save his son, whatever the price is.
So he cost the lot. The last the 10th time and now it falls on the camels when it was 100 candles. So he sacrifices 100 camels to save his son Abdullah and I can tell you as well how much love obviously and for Abdullah. We said he loved all his sons but Abdullah had this special place in his heart.
Abdullah grows to be a very good man, respected man in his tribe in his city in Makkah and he seems to be lead
In a normal average life
and he was known for his decency. He was not involved in bad things like other youth. He was actually a well behaved youth and he from an early age, he took business and trade as profession. So he started pursuing business.
When he reached an age where he is about to get married,
they start set obviously the Family Start setting this still the same thing in most of the Muslim worlds, the family starts looking around for the ideal girl specifically, probably the mothers that's looking for her son. So they find they find me and I've been to Amina, been to what Amina had been to where she's from Quraysh but her mother is from Medina from banana jar. Her mother is from Medina from Banu and the job. And Medina was at the time known as yesterday. Yesterday, it was not really referred to as Medina was called the trip. So
so her mother, the mother of Amina comes from yesterday. So they found eminence would be a very good reputation. Beautiful Woman suitable for their son. So they actually approached the family. And Abdullah gets happily married to Amina been to well, newlywed couple couple happy in the life.
enthusiastic about building a new family, a beautiful family.
And it was a few months into the marriage. Abdullah just goes about doing his own business, which is trade. So there was a business trip to trip. So it goes to your thread. And the thread was known for a plague. It was known for a plague everyone, almost everyone who went to Yathrib they were susceptible to you know, catching that disease that plague in Medina. And Abdullah caught it. And that trip. And while still doing his business in Medina, his health deteriorates. And he actually dies
unexpectedly. So obviously, the news reach Maccha. And you can imagine the state, I don't when someone gets married recently just talking about the wife who just recently got married, usually the husband is very excited, the wife is very excited. They look forward to the time they spent together in the first few months, right. That's before they hit, you know, the, the the normal, mundane life of marriage when they start, you know, want to spend time away from each other. But at the beginning, they're very excited sometimes even find the wife really looking through the windows, waiting and expecting her husband to come back. She can't wait for him to come back. And he's
rushing and speeding up his steps to the house in order to all of this was obviously expected at the beginning. But now imagine a woman is such a state excited about her husband to come back from that trip. All she receives is that your husband died and you're not going to see him again because he was buried in your trip. Such a big shock. Such a big shock. But yes, Abdullah left this world. But he left his Amana or his trust in the warmth of Amina. She was pregnant. She was pregnant. So obviously who takes care of Amina automatically in that culture, it is the father of the husband, the family that would look after her so they treated her as their own daughter specifically that she
And you can imagine Abdulmutallab, upon hearing or upon receiving the news that his son died. His son died. His poorly dearest son close his son died while away.
is there in her house. And despite this kind of sadness, that obviously engulf that family, specifically that Abdullah is the historical reports or the law indicate that he was a very decent man, as I said, loved by the people around him. A very mild nature is the kind of person that everyone loves. No one has a grudge against that person. Everyone has good memories, good things to say about that person. So in the midst of this kind of confusion, and this kind of sadness probably lasted for a few months. But obviously life in Macau was would still, you know, key move on people had to move on and pursue their own business. But around that time, the people of Makkah received
shocking news. And the shocking news was that Mecca was under threat. Black Cat itself was under threat. And this wasn't common. Specifically at that time in the history of collaging. These duplicate that wasn't common to have big scale or large scale kind of attack, military attack, approaching Mecca and
This time it was coming from the south. It was coming from Yemen. And specifically, the Yemeni army was led by a Baja a Shrum was led by Abraha an ashram and the reason for that kind of invasion that was approaching Mecca. Why didn't Abraham bring this huge army and it wasn't a normal army even wasn't like the, the regular or normal army of that time, but they had a lot of elephants with them. That which they brought them from Africa. And at that time, don't forget, like, this was the government in Yemen. Aloha Shalom originally, where does he come from? His Ethiopian, so Ethiopia was sort of colonizing Yemen at the time. So they were they took over Yemen, and it was there for
some time. So there was a lot of Yemen was a place of a lot of disputes. The Persians also governed Yemen at the time, they colonized him on the time. So it was many taken over many times, Yemen, during that period. So whereas the Abyssinians, or the people from UN Habitat, they had already conquered Yemen, they were they had the government. So the leader of their army was Abraham ashram. And the reason he decided to come to Mecca was to destroy al Qaeda, and Masjid Al haram, demolish it.
And he had, he had a story with al Qaeda,
obviously, taking over Yemen, and looking at it because obviously, you have to understand the abbacy. Now at the time was a civilization.
There was a civilization in terms of government institutions, in turn in military terms. In economic terms, it was a civilization, whereas the Arabs were just scattered tribes, nomads, fighting among each other traveling for water. And
based on seasons, they will travel from one place to the other. So they didn't have a very basic simple kind of lifestyle, no civilization. So they held themselves in at a higher level, or they saw themselves as superior to the Arabs, the Abyssinians at the time, so they look down upon the Arabs. So when they took over Yemen, which is actually the source of the lineage of the Arabs, that's where the Arabs came from. They came from Yemen. So they took over that, for some time, they realized still, the ABS were not coming to us. They were not coming to do business to do trade. They were still doing their own business and trade, specifically in Mecca. That was the hub of the Arabian
Peninsula. And when Abraham ashram asked, Why don't these people come to him, and they said, because the trade is mixed with their religion, with their religious life, and that's because they have a house that they believe that was the house of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and that's the house for them the house of God. So they come and worship, they come in pilgrimage, and they have markets and bazaars and they have
different times and seasons for business and trade around Mecca. So a lot of business will take place during the Hajj pilgrimage season. Before and after you had different bazaars like so Rocha and others, where did you meet Jen and other other markets.
So being a civilization abroad, ashram wanted this business to come to Yemen, but it wasn't coming to him. And so realizing the complexity of the this background in the Arabian Peninsula, there was business with religion and tradition. So he wanted to offer them something better. So he offered some incentives for business people and treats men. He offered them incentives in Yemen, and he builds in Yemen. In some, he built a massive house of worship temple house of worship, and he said, I'm gonna build it, it will be far better than what these people have in Mecca. And by the way, just the reason he looked down upon the Cabal clearly one of the reasons he looked down upon the camera,
the camera wasn't at that time as we know it today.
Everyone thinks on camera still the same kind of the same shape, not at the time of the Prophet SAW Salem. The height of al Qaeda can only have a wild guess
the height of al Qaeda was similar to the height of this table.
The height of one camera was similar to the height of because you guys probably watched some documentaries, or maybe the that movie and message the message which is got a lot of stuff, good, good and bad, a lot of, you know, inaccuracies, historical inconsistencies.
It showed the cab pretty much as what it is today as a as a construction. But a camera at that time was not like this.
The height of the camera was similar to this table,
and the camera was nearly four walls.
it had no ceiling. And it wasn't even proper walls, it was stones laid on top of each other, there was no cement
to hold the thing together was just, you know, sort of slates and stones put on top of one another. And this was how the wall was constructing this was in Canada.
Now I know a lot of you are disappointed well, it doesn't give the same kind of impression and sanctity, as you know it today as this huge construction. So maybe this was actually the reason that one of the reasons why Abraham is like is this simple construction, these people flocked it from all around the Arabian Peninsula, we're gonna build something far bigger. So he built such a profound construction, it was a marvel of architecture was a masterpiece. And a lot of it was made with gold. So he built it to such a high standard that wasn't known at the time, so that the Arabs would flock to it, and people would come to it to worship and to do business he didn't understand, obviously.
And you will find this with people, sometimes with some people from military backgrounds. So when someone comes from a military background, and they govern a country, they commit a lot of blunders, there's a lot of depth in history, in politics that they do not grasp and understand because of their background.
And sometimes people come from economic backgrounds as well. So that's going to when they govern countries, that's gonna also have an impact on the way they govern the country. So these are human elements that are important to take into consideration. So apart from being a person of war and military, he doesn't understand what it means to have religious significance. He doesn't understand what it was all about. The construction was about the golden about the business, such as superficial approach. So they tried to market this place of worship, which they called Alko. Lace L. Lace, they call the police. So they tried to get people to come they marketed it, but that no, that marketing
campaign made zero success. People still going to McCann recover, he was obviously disappointed. And he wanted to do something but there was no political, you know, excuse for him to
attack may be Cabo something. But one bedwin took offense by the attempts of Abraham ashram and that government in Yemen, to try to attract investments and religion and become the hub in the reverse. So someone seems to have taken offense. So he decided to teach them a lesson. In a very, I would say simple minded way. So it seems this guy, and based on the the history, these are historical narrations. So what happened?
This guy decided to relieve himself in the middle of that in the most like sacred place in that house of worship alkalis. And according to some books in history, as well that refer to this incident, this, they said, like when the caretakers or the people the guardians of the place. Because it was done at night when they figured out in the morning, in the daylight when they saw what had happened. They said, we saw some human feces there. And it was so huge that's unimaginable that it's it belongs to a human being. They realize what the point was, that is to disgrace that place in a very despicable, filthy way. By that man Abra Hassan took this as an excuse. He said,
Arabs are defying our authority, our status or setting the sanctity of our place. Now we're going to teach them a lesson. So he puts together that army and he decides to march to Mecca, in order to demolish al Qaeda, teach the Arabs a lesson and offer them something in return. Once the cabinet is demolished, he thought that we would have no sanctity people will start coming to, to Yemen to send her to do their business and do the pilgrimage. And so on and so forth. So Ablon ashram approached Mecca. And as we said, around that time, same year, when Abdullah died, that was the time when the news of Ebola from his army approaching Mecca. And he sent his news that I don't want to do I don't
want to kill any human being. I'm not targeting you guys. I just want to demolish this place. If you don't stand in my way, you're not going to get hurt.
And that would be the best solution for you guys have no power to you know, defend Mecca or to fight against me. Obviously on the way being, you know, military
superior, whatever was on the way they would confiscate it.
So specifically cattle, sheep, camels, cows, whatever, they took that and you
When a huge army is marching from one place, to the other needs a lot of resources, a lot of fruit, a lot of supplies. So, and that was the tradition of any big army would exploit and use whatever resources were available on the way by means of confiscating, you know, the locals properties.
So that was the case when they arrived close to Makkah.
They took whatever cattle, camels, sheep cows were around. And I did not pull up being one of the main leaders main personalities in my company heard that. He goes approaches abroad ashram personally, and it was a risk. It was a risk to go and talk to him. So he goes to him and he says, Why did you come to MCC?
What is it that you brought an army and you came to Makkah, still the Arabs don't know what the story is? Why is he why he's coming to market?
Is he said, Why did you come to Mac if you wanted something you could have sent to us and we would come to you to Yemen and try to really give you what you want. So he said, You can't give me what I want. Because what I want is to destroy this house.
So Abdul Muttalib did not reply to that. Then he asked for his camels. He said, Okay, your troops have taken my my camels, my flock of camels. I want that back.
So Abraham Ashraf, still speaking from a position of superiority. He really tried to ridicule abdomen, Toby said, I came to destroy this place that you claim has history and it's about your forefathers. And you're talking to me about camels.
So this is where Abdulmutallab said the famous statement he said and are unbelievable. What is Beatty, Robin yami. He said, I am the master of the camels. And they are my kings. They are my last my business. So I'm going to look after them. And the House has its own master and he would look after it.
So he took his camels back. It goes back to Makkah the people of Makkah stopped and said leaving their houses
they started leaving their houses so a lot of them actually event sort of evacuate partially evacuated Mecca, because they don't want to be in harm's way. Abraham Maslow obviously tries to get his army to march to Maccha. But every time they tried to get the elephants too much to Mecca, they won't move. They won't move. And by the way, that's historical of
things that's within the book of history. The main elephant, the main elephant, that was the biggest one had a name and the name was Muhammad. Was Muhammad.
So every time they tried to push the camels too much towards towards Mecca Northwoods it wants the elephants or the elephants towards Mecca they want
so they even poke them with this Spears inflict pain on the elephant's trying to push them too much towards Mecca, but they want they would actually fall.
But every time they when they diverge them to any other direction they will start marching normally in the midst of their tries.
Something strange happened it's never been seen before. But this incident is recorded in the Quran in surah tel field
LM Tala Keifa la boca be as horrible field. Have you seen what your Lord did with the people of the elephants as Hubble field which are Abraham ashram in his army and image al Qaeda home fee complete Allah subhanaw taala made all their efforts go to waste without a Salah led him play on adverbial Allah sent upon them huge birds they are on a Barbie. These are birds tell me him Adriana Tim in situ they thrown them stones that are made of fire. Sort of coals made of fire they thrown they threw drop these stones on them fiery burning stones on them. To me in geology Institute for gyla home casts FINMA cool. They were like a field. You know when
this used to be the case when there was like a field where you grow wheat. And then you let
sheep or cows, you let them loose in that field. What do they do? They'll destroy it. So Allah says they were exactly like this because their bodies were just ripped apart. They were all over the place. The bodies of everyone, only one one person in that army survived.
One person that Amazon some narrations these are historical nourishes as well. Some of them said actually a branch some managed to run back but he died on the way or something like this. You
But another person as well, it seems that we've managed to run away and conveyed the news to the people in Yemen to the government that back in Yemen. So when the people of Makkah at that time were trying to flee Makkah, it seems one person was unable to flee. And that was Amina. There's one narration in the books of history. And
this is reported in public art had been said, as reported on public art, even sad and in shade of narration is somehow acceptable, somehow acceptable, that I'm in a bin to have gave birth on the same day.
On the same day, Allah destroyed the army of Ebola.
Now, as I said, this narration is a little bit disputed. But we know that the Prophet Allah was born in Amman feel the year of the elephants, because that was something as well with the Arabs there. And I think it's so many cultures, when you have an extraordinary event. You you name that year after that event, you name the year after that event. So if you look back, I'm not sure if what cultures still have this but the Arabs definitely, definitely have this like, I remember talking about I'm not sure talking about Jordan.
Remember our the elders they used to say, Santa theologia or the year of the snowstorm, the year because 1976 There was a huge snowstorm that covered Palestine and Jordan. Like I think it was one and a half meters Snow was there. So for them, they called and it lasted for about two weeks. That was unusual.
So they call it the year of the snowstorm. So the Arabs called this the year of the elephant, such a big huge event, the year of the elephant. So the problem was born in that year. And there is this narration that mentions that the prophets of salaam
born on the same day Allah destroyed the this army of Ibrahim Al ashram and it comes from Abdullah Abbas holy Allah who
now what is the exact date of the prophet or where the problem the problem was born?
We know it's Monday. We know it's Monday. Do we know the dates?
Do we know the date? Not sure?
Yeah, there are multiple narrations.
One of them says the 21st of Robin a one the month of rubella one. One of them says no, it's the 19th. So one of them says it's the ninth one says the 11th. And one says is the 12th. All of them are weak. nourishes the strongest among them, says the 11th.
But people are celebrating the Molad on the 12. But it's still on that's an issue because you don't know exactly when the Prasanna was, was born. So the Prophet Salam was born
53 years before hedger. So when he made his allotment Salam was 53 years old. So he was born 53 years before the hedgerow. Now the birth of the Prophet SAW Selim,
as Amina been to his mother explains, was an easy she went through labor but she didn't have the pains that women usually have as they give birth was an easy kind of delivery.
and we're going to come to something like this ammunition to work she said about her son. She was she was proud about the handmade sausage. She was proud about him and she didn't even feel for him. She said in the lib say Hakuna Livni had Shannon, so you're gonna give me Heather, Shannon, oh, Shannon, this, my son is going to have a great future. He's going to be something he's going to be somebody in the future. When I was delivering him, and I was in my labor, I saw a light come out of me. And it reached
it reached Musleh it lit up the palaces or the castles in Basra in a shambles right now is to the south of Damascus, right to the south of Damascus Buster where there are a lot of ruins.
So, so she realized that, like her son was was special. And there were certain things that happened but there's a lot of false news about the birth of the Prophet loss. So some of the there's some really really funny narrations, probably people who love the prophets of Salaam. They wanted to give like more sanctity and more grandeur around the birth of the Prophet and so they made up stuff. But we are supposed to take the things that are authentic and things that are at least historically acceptable. So some of the nonsense that was actually made
These were sheer lies.
like there's somebody came up with this and it's mentioned in some books that the prophets are setting them as a little child he would you know how the little child makes plays around his playful. So he would move pointed the moon and he would play with the moon with his finger
play with the moon. And this is an oh, by the way this is this is made up by some people probably 1000 years ago, they came up with stuff like this, but it's it's not it's not true. So he would point to the moon which direction to go on the moon would just follow and he would play around with the stars. Pretty much someone had the idea of a touch screen from those days came up with that.
But that's not true. There's nothing true about this actually. It's it's made up. But the the authentic narration is what Amina said that she saw a light come out of her and it lit the palaces or the castles in in Bosler in a sham and sham area.
But there was something as well known about the prophets of Allah he was selling them
Hassan Abdul phablets the poet's in Medina, when the prophets of salaam was born, he was seven, eight years old.
But he was in the effort. He says I remember he remembered that later on. When the President came to Medina and called them to stem he remember he said, I remember when I was seven years old, one of the Jewish rabbis famous Jewish rabbis and yeah, for him.
He came out at night.
He came out of his house at night, and he started screaming to the top of his lungs, calling people of his tribe and his relatives he said wahala Leila Turnage, Mohammed Ella de woody WA. Tonight, the star that marks the birth of the final prophet whose name is Muhammad was born tonight.
So in the Scripture, there was a clear indication clear remarks or marks on the the night or the day, the prof Salam, the signs of that day when he would be born. They knew these, and they knew his name that was and then there's something about names among the Arabs. Previously, the Arabs focused more on the roots rather than on the other shapes of the words. So Mohammed and Mohammed were pretty pretty much two versions of the same name. Like in English, you say, David and Dave right for short. For example, pretty much Amman and Muhammad were pretty much the same name. But later on, they developed to be separate completely separate names. So I'm Adam, Mohammed in the Arabic language,
someone called Mohammed you could call them Muhammad, normal that was normal among the Arabs because it wasn't just another version of the same name.
So the Prophet SAW Selim, his name was
was mentioned and Subhan Allah Allah kept this recorded with Hassan bin third, who later on became Muslim, imagine how many years he remembered that afterwards, at least 53 years later, he remembered that it you know, awaken that memory or that recollection in his mind when he when the promiseland came to Medina and he invited them
Another man was actually not only the Jews in Medina were waiting or inevitable waiting for the birth of the prophets. I send them there were other people as well. So there was a man called
as a digital analog nano failed. Zaid ibn Muhammad, Adnan failed, we will talk later on a bit about his story in more detail they did not fail.
was a person sorry, it was a person
who did not follow the pagan worship as the people in Mecca. He did not follow that.
He realized he was Henny for Rico Hanif sort of more head monotheist.
He realized what people are upon was wrong was false. She realized it didn't make sense. And he realized it wasn't the religion of Brahim because Arabs in Makkah and all around the Arabian Peninsula. They thought what they were doing, they were convincing themselves that what they were doing was the religion of Ibrahim. Yes, they had a lot of remains of religion of Ibrahim acaba making power off making say they still had these things and they were from Ibrahim Minnis made them they made hedge pretty much a lot of the a lot of similarities is what we do today.
So but they introduced idol worship and paganism. But that was that was not true.
So they didn't realize this was not true. This was not a religion of Ibrahim and he said him so he would even smell big tobacco. The daughter of Abu Bakr Smash, she says I still remember they didn't have a camera gonna fail, leaning to Aqaba, resting, like putting his back
leaning his back on towards the Kaaba, and he will say to the people of Makkah. When they were doing their worship he would say well Allah hiya Ella McAleese. I mean, come on. Abraham Ryrie he says none of you people have Marquez upon the religion of Ibrahim but me, what you guys are doing is not the truth. That's not the religion of Brian. Then he would say
it would say Allahu Malecon to Lm K for our budak. The ABA took like a Neela. Allah moolah. So he would say, Oh Allah find know how to pray to you how to worship you, I will do it. But I don't know. I don't know. The only thing I know is to bow down. So he used to do like this. That was his prayer.
And in search of the truth, he actually traveled, traveled to Iraq traveled to Syria, natural Syria, and he asked about the true religion, religion of Ibrahim. So this is why he chose when he traveled to Syria, he met some of the people of the Scripture, one of their priests. And he told them, I want to do the religion of Ibrahim.
He said, If you want the religion of Brahim, probably we're going to come up with his story again, they said, he said, If you want the original Ibrahim, you have to go back to where you came from. Because there's a prophet who is going to come and we will revive the religion of Ibrahim, he will come out pretty much from where you came. Go back to your hometown. So he went back to Mecca hoping that he would meet the prophets of Allah Islam and actually he met, he met Muhammad he saw Muhammad, so I sent him but he died before the prophets Allah received the revelation he had died before the porcelain received the revelation. So this is why the Prophet Salam talks about the demography and
he says, You birth we all milk Deanna anata and ohada. This man will be sent on that they will be resurrected on the day of judgment as a nation by himself. Because he he remained upon the slim thread of truth that was still remaining there, against all of this overflowing in overwhelming tide of paganism and idol worship, and blasphemies and heresies.
So the psalm narrations indicate that the people of the Jewish tribes have been accorded the burden of their any effort they actually knew. They said, it's a red star that marks the birth of the future prophet. Now, Muhammad, the little child Salallahu Salam was born, was born, he was given the name Muhammad was given the name Muhammad. Now there are other nations that indicate it was his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, who named him some nourishes the kid No, that was his mother that gave him the name.
But anyway, he was given the name of Hamlet,
And he was nursed obviously by his mother first.
And he was nursed by Omar Amon online who was a servant, she was a slave. She was a servant, and she nursed him. The interesting thing on what am I known as the prophets I send them she became, she lived, she outlived the prophets, Allah nice and
she migrated to Medina. She was in Medina as a Muslim. And the prophets have been passed away. She was still alive. And she is the woman that Abu Bakr and Omar probably Allah and I used to visit regularly. They used to check on her that one day they visited her and she was crying. They said, Why do you cry? After the death of the Prophet was like, you know, the President went to his Lord that's better than him. She said, I'm not crying because of that. But I'm crying because the NWA and kappa he's the man. And she says, that I'm crying because the revelation that used to come from Heavens will no longer come down to earth. So that's that was a machinist, the Prophet sallallahu
wa salam. And one of the people that loved was happy about the birth of the Prophet Salah was very happy, extremely happy, to the point that he made his one of his servants, one of his slave girls, nurse, the Prophet SAW Selim and that was Abu Lahab
and would have was happy and I think he gave out something I think he slaughtered some camels out of the happiness when he heard about the birth of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ironically, ironically, SubhanAllah.
And the problem stayed with is this little child Mohammed stayed with his mother for a while. But then the habit of the pupil of Metka was obviously to send their children to the nomads to the Bedouins outside for many reasons. First, cities were contaminated. A lot of people coming in and out. So they didn't have vaccines at that times, hygiene and so on and so forth. A lot of medical attention. So plagues were common, it's easy to catch disease.
Still the the general environment in the city was tense and political. So they wanted the children to get exposed to better environments in outside the cities. And one of the most important reasons to send their kids from a young age was actually to learn the Arabic language because the Arabic language of the Bedouins outside the cities was superior was superior. This is why even Imam Shafi learned his Arabic language from bonobo they were nomads, Bedouins.
And another reason as well, the Bedouins had a more masculine lifestyle. So the child will start to take responsibility of himself and of doing other tasks as well from a young age. So they wanted to offer the kids this kind of upbringing. And
the prophets Allah sentiment seems narrations indicate that a lot of these nursing women came from the Bedouin areas, but they did not choose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some narrations indicate that his family was poor. They could not offer something but some scholars questioned that they said was poor but just a few months or a couple of months, actually back or maybe a couple of weeks back. I didn't look at him, took back his camels from a bar lesson. And he had so many camels. He had so many camels, so he was a rich person. So why would the person would be poor when his guardian was his grandfather and will not tell him? So I know this is an issue of discussion among
the scholars, but the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim was taken by Halima sadiya, from Bhanu set from bento said Halima Sadie.
So he was taken by Halima Sandia and Halima Sadie was living in quite an impoverished life. They were poor. They even like the only writing animal they had was a donkey. They had goats, they were not, you know, giving milk, proper milk. So they they were suffering somehow in their lives. So when she took the profits or set them started nursing him, she noticed that everything started to change, the goats were much more productive. And like their cattle started to increase in number. They, she saw so many blessings. So she was happy with the Prophet SAW Salem, she treated him very well as her own son, who was of similar age with the messenger with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. And he was
set up. So the problem learned from them Arabic language, proper Arabic language, this kind of independent lifestyle where you take responsibility from a young age. So the porcelain would help them out and the sheep and do certain tasks and so on and so forth.
And when the professor was around
five, five years old, she it was time to send him back to his mother.
But he must study here because of the blessing. She loved the problem so much, and because of the blessings that she felt as well. She really wanted to keep him a bit more. So she goes to his mother requests that can I keep him a bit more like we're going to take care of him, but we really loved him, he became part of our family. Like it's not easy for us now to give him away.
So, I mean, I said fine. She saw the good signs of the on her child that he was really growing very well healthy, strong, confident. She saw good signs you said why not? So Amina or Halima sadiya took the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi
During that time, he was about five, six years old.
He used to she used to send them to look after the sheep, so they would take the sheep tinned the sheep around this age five, six years old. And that shows you what kind of lifestyle they were offered from a young age.
So one day he went, he goes out to tender sheep with his brother, nursing brother, and
they forget to take their lunch. So Mohammed says to his brother, why didn't you go back to home mother and bring the lunch and I'll wait for you here. They went too far from the house. They said fine. So he goes, the province of sentiment this time he says I was by myself with a sheep. Two men come to me. faces were white dressed up in white. They approached me one of them holds me and he opens my chest.
Before as they approached him, they they looked at each other and they said who are who is it the man is the one that we're looking for?
Is it none in their heads?
him. So he grabs them opens up his chest, takes out his heart.
He washes his art in the basin made of gold with Zamzam water. And he takes a little piece of it. And he says, how the humble shape on he says this is the portion of shape on
it you can learn from his art. Then he puts his art back in his chest. Then they put it back together. They put it back together.
The problem seems he was conscious because he narrates the story. He narrates the story ends in Sahih Bukhari.
his brother was on his way back, and he saw that he rushes to his mother. He says, oh, ma, ma, is calling on his mother. And he says, No, Mohammed and Muhammad was murdered. Muhammad was killed.
Mohammed was not her son. He was a trust. She feared anything goes wrong with him, she would get in trouble.
And she didn't want anything bad to, to come on mo to follow him when he was in hell custody. She rushed to find Mohammed, the little child with a pale face. Completely worried and frightened. She says what happened? He narrates the story to her, enrich the storyteller. She takes him to Mecca.
I don't want any trouble. She goes to his mother and she says, that's your son. Check him anything missing. You can check him check him out. Everything's okay. I want to give him back. She said just a short while ago. He just came in. He said do you want him to stay more? What happened? She didn't know. We just it was I thought it was enough. It's time for him to spend time with his mother. So me and his mother said no not tell him it was the Penal Code. She said tell me the truth. What happened? She told her the story. She said to people approached him they open up his chest and they did what they did.
So Amina said
at a half an hour earlier well Eddie, you feel I would have already had Amina Shavon Do you feel shaitan for my son this son will law he in hola hola tion.
In Nila mouth will add to or a to add holiday meaning on about Allahu Kosovo's prohibition.
Chapin for my son, this son, he will grow to be somebody. When I gave birth when I was delivering him, I saw a light come out of me that
lit up the palaces in Basra and Hashem. So she was confident about her son. But she took him back. She took him back. Now narrations indicate that the mother of the prophets of salaam was a very loving woman was very good mother. Very good mother. Even the Prophet SAW Selim remembers that.
So obviously, she was a very good mother, very caring, loving. And you can see this actually had an impact on the Prophet SAW Selim as well. You know, when the child grows in a secure environment, they're not given conditional love. They're really loved genuinely, truly from the heart of the mother and the father. It's not okay, if you if you do something bad, I'm gonna treat you bad. It's not like this. That's not discipline. That's not discipline. So the child really, you know, children grow on love. They crave love and they grow in love. You cannot withdraw your love from them. Even if they do something wrong. You can discipline them, but don't withdraw your love. That's a very
Because they will feel insecure. You will take away their self esteem, they'll start self having self doubt. So don't do this with your kids. Don't ever don't make your love conditional on their behavior, or their performance or their achievements. Don't ever do this. They deserve the love regardless. They deserve don't give them conditional love. Give them unconditional love. That doesn't mean you don't discipline discipline, but with love still, your discipline by making them face the consequences of what they do. But do not ever withdraw your love. Don't ever make them feel insecure, because there's nothing worse than a child that feeling unloved even for a few seconds. It
Even if they don't show it, they might show defiance, but they feel so vulnerable and weak inside.
So the prophesy son was really treated well by his mother Amina been to work.
And still, Abdul Muttalib was looking after him being his grandfather, and do not tell him had a dream.
He had a dream one day that he saw
Oh, that from the from the land of Mecca came out, huge tree grew and grew like as a huge powerful tree that reached such like extreme heights and it branches spread everywhere and it covered the whole earth, the lands of the Arabs and the lands on the non Arabs. So when he woke up, he thought they had some knowledge of interpreting dreams. So he, he interpreted the dream that one of my children, one of my progeny will grow and will become eminent and his influence will reach or will cover all these lands
will cover all these lands. Now ironically, Abdulmutallab thought the dream was talking about Abu Talib, his son.
But Subhanallah wasn't it was talking about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he comes from his progeny. He's his grandson.
So the Prophet Muhammad stays with his mother for a while. But when he was six years old, his mother wants to visit her uncle's,
her uncle's because
her uncle's come maternal uncles are in Medina because their mother is from Medina. So she goes to visit her uncle's in Medina. And her grant probably had grand parents as well there. So she goes, she takes her son on that as well. They go on their narrations that indicate that Saddam would remember how he used to play in Medina, as a little boy, six years old, who spent some time there a few weeks, and it was time to come back to Maccha. But by that time, Amina had already caught the contamination.
The contamination that caused the demise of her own husband, six years ago,
six or seven years ago,
she cousins catches the disease, but nevertheless, they set off towards Makkah.
Shortly after they left Medina, her condition, then, you know, deteriorates. Her health starts, bad gets badly affected, and then she becomes weaker and weaker and weaker. And then she passes away. On the way, just shortly after leaving Medina.
She dies, she takes his lot her last breath in front of her son, six years old, Muhammad
his father had already died. He was in his mother's womb, and now his mother died in front of his eyes. That's a big shock.
His loving, caring mother now passes away and in front of his eyes, and now he's got no one left. And it's painful. It's painful, but this kind of pains kind of experience. It makes the person stronger, makes them stronger.
So the Prophet SAW Selim, later on in Medina, after Prophet now he's in Medina, he was with the companions with his companions to the south of Medina. Then he says there's companions to hear. They weren't walking around. Outside of Medina, he says that you guys stay here. I'll come back shortly. So he walks away a little bit.
And then he comes back, let's say maybe 15 minutes, roughly speaking. So he comes back, and is really tears are rolling down his cheeks.
The Companions Look at him and they say,
What happened on Messenger of Allah, they have no clue.
in this than to Robbie. And as Orocobre on me, he said, I saw Allah's permission to visit the grave of my mum. So it was marked to the grave and his mom was marked. He actually went to see it. It was in that area. So he goes to see the grave of his mother. And
he says further that cattle to matter what a cutter half of a Kate said, I remembered how soft and caring and merciful she was. So I cried.
And among them hooked up says me mentioned that because he asked the process cinema as well. Another time the problem goes and visits to the grave of his mum and one of the companions says, So we saw the Prophet SAW Selim, we didn't realize what he was doing but he sat in front of the screen and he was nodding and sort of we were speaking with someone. So that was the grief of his mother. And he said Steven to Robbie and Zola Cobra on me for Additionally, I asked Allah's permission to visit my mother's grave he gave me permission. I asked him as Altona stokfella For my nanny, so a family I too, so I asked him to seek forgiveness for her. I was not allowed. I was not allowed.
The province of Salam, everytime he remembered his mother, he would cry because of her soft heart, her loving nature. So you can see what she was a very kind, caring
mother and this must have taught the prophets of Salaam. Such a big lesson. But now the problem was taken back to Mecca, and his grandfather, I'm doing Multilib takes care of him.
Something about the incident of the two angels approaching the Prophet salaam, opening up his chest, by the way, nsmt Malik says the prophets of salaam I saw on the chest of the prophets, Allah wa salam, the signs of the opening in his just sort of like stitches.
I saw that it shows it also points to something that the most important thing in the human being is the heart. Fixing the heart comes first, before anything else.
Yes, all the external actions are important. But to do them and to focus on them and neglect the heart. That's very problematic. Some people really fix everything about the externals, with the heart is to corrupt, the corrupt. That's not the way the heart takes precedence over everything else. And we're not in a state of competition between the state of the heart and the state of your external actions. They should go hand in hand, by extreme focus on the externalities. How do I dress up? How do I do certain things, and attention to details when it comes to external actions. But when it comes to the heart, having envy, jealousy, contempt, even having bad thoughts about Allah or
about bad people? We don't care.
That's, that's inappropriate. And you're in any persons approach to Allah subhanaw taala. And so the host heart takes precedence. And that this incident shows that the central point in the human being is the heart as the Prophet saw them says, allow enough ingest the MOBA.
Either Salah had sort of had just an Akula, either festival festival or just a docu and our he'll called, there is a piece of flesh in the body when it's fixed, when it's sound, everything else will be sound, if it's corrupt, everything else will be corrupt. It's the heart. It's the heart. So our focus should be on the heart. But without neglecting this to external actions.
without neglecting the external actions, it should not be only focusing on the external actions and neglecting the heart because that's what hypocrisy that's what leads to hypocrisy. And that's ideally what hypocrisy is. You focus on the external actions when your heart is corrupt.
So this symbolic nature is well of the story. It's a powerful story. There's so many lessons one of them is symbolic, that it's about it's we should start with the heart I lost when I started preparing the prophets of salaam by cleansing his heart by cleansing his heart. So now Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
he moves to the house of his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib and I'm domotics Abdulmutallab loved him so much. He would treat him exceptionally like no one else. He gave him special attention. Even Abdulmutallab had a special place next to Cabo to sit in. He had a couch that no one would approach. No one would was allowed. Even the kids were not allowed to touch it. But Mohamed Salah Salem would sneak around and he would go and sit on it. Like they couldn't catch him who still said, and then they complain to Abdullah. He said we'll try to take him, push him away from it. But he want he said that will eliminate Heather Shannon. He said Leave him because this son My son, Hamid is going to
have a bright future. He's going to be something when he grows up. So everyone expected that there were early signs about Muhammad wa sallam. Now he loved him so much. And there was a very strong bond between Abdul Muttalib and the prophets of Salaam. And here he learned a lot of leadership.
And a lot of the skills of being a public figure and Omotola was a public figure was one of probably the main leader in Mecca. So the problem was in his company, he kept the communist company he learned so much from an early age, how to be a public figure, and how to be in charge, how to be a leader, and how to treat people justly and respectfully, and so on and so forth. So personally, I learned a lot from him.
And he would entrust the prophets of salaam with so many things. And one day someone came from some during the Hajj season. Some pilgrims came from Medina and one of them narrates the story. He says, I saw Abdul Muttalib who used to look after the pilgrims. He left everything and he was he looked completely distraught and worried. And he was looking around frantically. So I asked my uncle who was with me an older person. So I asked him I said, you know who's this? Why is he worried? He says you're gonna have a say you the courage she says this is the saying the most important person MacLeish
um, do not tell him *a Lebanon Lahu
Hello, Jamal, everyone Amjad, he is looking for his son, meaning Mohammed. He took the camels out of Mecca.
And He usually comes back but he hasn't come back in the usual time. So he's completely worried about him to the point where he lifted pilgrims and he became really consumed about with worries about the prophets a lot about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And he started looking around everyone noticed that and he was saying Allah from the Iraq era, the era keybie Mohamed era builder who was not indeed or Allah bring back my son, bring him back Muhammad and do me a favor. Do me a favor. So the prophets of salaam came later just before Maghrib time so
so when he saw him when he saw him he said well hola hola to Falcone, Abdullah he said well, Allah He, you will never let you go away from me from from this point on. You're going to stay with me. I can't take it that you go on. I don't know where you went to. I don't know if something happened to you. I'm not gonna let this happen. This how much he loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no more Amen. There is a story. She says I saw Mohammed
sitting in the corner in the house. And he was crying his eyes out.
On him and she I saw Mohammed in the corner of the of the room. And he was crying profusely and crying his eyes, his eyes out.
So obviously he was in a very emotional state. He was still a young boy. So what was the Prophet SAW sent him to be in that state? We'll find out next weekend shall
I can take one question. Probably two of them short. Any questions?
Common No, it wasn't common. Good question was Mohammed named Mohamed common among the Arabs? No, it wasn't common. There were some a couple of people in Mecca named Mohammad because seen some people heard that a prophet would be sent at that time. So very historical reports mentioned that two to three people were named Muhammad at the time in Mecca. There were a couple in Medina. It seems like it because they had some knowledge from the scripture. But it wasn't common. No, it was not common.
Okay, we can take another question.
Honey Mustard, he pretty much was an infant, of maybe a couple of months.
First, yes, his mother nursed him on what Amon nursed him and the other one nurse nursed him as well. But that was for a couple or a few months probably.
Yeah. Point Zakon Lachlan inshallah we carry on next week in sha Allah SallAllahu wasallam as he did on the feminine while early he was
