Hola, Juan Manuel blood for their hair the Aloha shadow Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola Shari Keller y shadow no Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was a limitlessly monkey Theon.
So we carry on with the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And again, as we said today in the hotbar, that the stories that we talk about that we mentioned are not meant merely for entertainment. The point here is to study the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and learn from it, learn lessons that we can benefit from in our daily life in our personal and public life. One of the tagline I think, was abandoned by North man.
He said, Could Nana Allah mu
l Mikaze. Come Hakuna Matata, allong a surah Tamina Al Quran. We were taught the Mercy sort of the battles of the process and M which is part of the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam, and the MaHA z is a general name. So yes, it refers to the battles but also refers to other of the some other details of the life of the Prophet salallahu Salam. So he said, we used to learn these Mallozzi which is the life of the prophet saw Selim, as we used to learn sewers from the Quran.
So they used to teach them who was a band of North Man Man is the Son of Man
is the son of Mandalay Allahu Anhu. So he's from the generation of a taboo in considered to be the generation of a taboo in and a ban was one of for those who know the fuqaha of Medina, Saba, the seven fuqaha scholars of Medina, abandonment of man was one of them.
We have been here
so they used to learn the life of the prophets of salaam not just to memorize it, place it in their heads, but it's just to learn from it. There are so many lessons there. As we quoted the verse in Surah, Yusuf Lockard can if you Kasasa him and baritone Al Bab indeed, in their stories. There have been lessons and we said the Ebro in the Arabic language comes from from the root Ebola. Ebola means to cross over to the other side. And this means whatever lessons you learn from a story you're supposed to cross over into your life. So bring them into your life, internalize them, personalize them, seize them benefit from them on a personal level. So we said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or
Mohamed Salah Salam at that time.
He was in his mid 20s When he got married to Khadija OB Allahu anha. He got married and we we talked about the story. I said that this time the Prophet SAW Selim as a younger man in Mecca, he started to secure his place. As one of the respected men, young men in Mecca, he became known as El Amin. That was his nickname El Amin. So if you say I mean in Makkah, automatically people
think of Muhammad, they think of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, the Prophet SAW Salem at that time.
He developed his own business, and he bought a slave, he bought a slave to himself, and we said slavery was all over the world, the whole world had the slavery phenomena was there. So the Prophet SAW Salem, bought a man called Zaid as a slave. But the Prophet SAW Selim freed him. He freed him, he said, you're free, and then he gave him the option to stay with him and be his adopted son. And he agreed to this. So the Prophet SAW Selim named him Zaid, ignore Mohammed Zaid, the son of Muhammad Sallallahu, ala Nabina, while he also have USANA. So he became the servant he became sort of the personal assistant of the Prophet SAW Salem because he was considered to be his son. And
a normal phenomenon at that time, so people could adopt and this son could become like your blood son.
So one day,
Zaid abnormal handed at the time.
And we said the Arabs had some some of the remnants of the religion of Ibrahim, so they performed Hajj, they performed tawaf, they performed say, they had these rituals and these acts of worship, but they were, they mixed them up with the worship of idols. So in tawaf, as we do on tawaf, nowadays. We go around seven times, and during the tawaf, we make dua, you can recite Quran you can make vicar you can make the call upon Allah ask Allah for whatever you want. People have Quraysh added to that something else on calling upon Allah and calling upon the SNAM the idols, call it and also something
Yeltsin that was touching
and rubbing their hands against the Muslim the idols, why seeking blessings, seeking blessings. So Mohammed Sawsan at that time, before revelation. He was making Tawaf around the Kaaba and his adopted son zayde was with him. So they out of habit like everyone else, he puts his hand on one of the idols called SF, there was two couple idols, one that was male, one of his females. One was one was male, one was female, SF, and either one of the two or snom, around the cabin itself. And now ILA itself was the male. Now, ILA was the female. And the legend goes, that these were to a man and a woman, a couple, who had a really unlawful relationship outside of marriage, and then they take
what the attendance was done. That was the,
the tradition, that's what at least the tradition said, that's what the legend says. So they were a snap.
But they were just as numb. And they were made of copper, though these were made of copper. So they don't know how to like the people of color ish. He goes close to a south, and he loves his hand against the South. The Prophet SAW Salem looks at him. Thus, before Revelation, He said, Don't ever do this again.
Don't ever do this again.
And he was angry with him. Then they kept making the fall off. So being a young man, Zaid, that time, he said, I'm going to do it again. I'll see how far he goes.
I'm gonna see how far he goes. So in Arabic, he says, for all to the NFC that I'm a sinner who had to unload on my account. I said to myself, I'm going to touch it, I'll see what he does next. So the second round, he touches it again. So the Prophet SAW sent him says, LM tuna. Didn't I tell you not to do that? So it was more angry with him.
So now Zedi says, well, Allah, His hand never touched an idol. The hand of the prophets of salaam the blessing of the Prophet never touched an idol. So that's basically that shows that Allah subhanaw taala guided Muhammad from a young age not to engage in anything that was haram, anything that was against the truth.
He didn't engage in anything that was against the tradition of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the authentic tradition of Ibrahim or Islam, which was Islam. So Allah subhanaw taala, protected him. And this shows as well.
Because this establishes something with the people and we're going to come to this point is a very important point that actually pretends to or times the Prophet sallallahu sallam was seen by the people of orange who someone who, as someone who doesn't follow heresies, which was innovations in religion with
so the Arabs knew the Arabs knew the religion of Ibrahim did not have idols. They knew that they knew that drinking alcohol was forbidden and haram in the religion of Ibrahim, they knew that Zina and any relationships outside of wedlock were haram, but still they practice them. And still, they attributed them to Ibrahim to the region of Ibrahim alayhis salam. But that's the state of denial. That's a state of denial,
that that they lived in. And this is what led them took off law. But anyway, but Allah Subhanallah protected the Prophet Solomon from all of these things. Why? Because the prophets, Islam is gonna call them to the opposite of all these mistakes. And it's the nature of people that when they are called to something or they are invited to something, which most likely they will have resistance to.
If they cannot, if they cannot attack the message, they will attack the messenger, they will attack the message. And this is one tactic that is used
in the media today.
And this is studied, by the way under what they call fallacies fallacy, there's a science in rhetoric, it's called fallacies is how to manipulate people's thinking.
Okay, in order to control them.
One of them if anyone an advocate of an idea, you don't know if the idea is so powerful, is so appealing, that it's hard to critique it. It's hard to find loopholes in it, where you can do instead attack the messenger, the advocate of it, the one who's calling people to it. So that's why you find a lot of people are attacking the Prophet SAW Selim now
they tried to find something against the prophets of Salaam in his life, so they can attack him and automatically discredit his message. And this works with a lot of naive people. A lot of misinformed people, people who don't, who don't invest in reading and finding out about the life of the prophet saw Selim. So they will say Mohammed Al Salam did such and such. He
He admitted he was this and that, ah, and he did this and he did that. And he suffered from this he suffered from that there is so many issues that they bring about. And the point is here, discredit the messenger.
Automatically, you know, people will turn away from the message, but Allah subhanaw taala pre emptive preemptively dealt with this with the people of Makkah. So, the Prophet SAW Selim did not have a bad history, he had no dark history. You know, sometimes you find someone who's come to practicing Islam, and Hamdulillah, Allah guided them, they started practicing Islam studying learning the Quran learning Hadith. Now they're going to tell, maybe first and foremost, they're going to turn or they're going to turn to their family, they will turn to their family and advice. So go to their parents, and you know what happens? And that's the difficult story. Right? The son
comes to the Father, you know, why you dressing up like this? Why why are you praying like this and so on, so forth. The same story happens over and over again.
Now, in defense, usually where the family says, you telling us about salah, you telling us about being a good Muslim you did such as such in your past, right? You are this kind of person. And now again, everyone knows start practicing, they start advising people people will say, you remember five years ago you did.
So when the Prophet SAW Selim, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah preemptively dealt with all of this, so the Prophet This is why when the prophets I said them came about it was very difficult for the people of Quran to find any accusation, any kind of loopholes in his character in his history. Such a bright history the honest is known as the trustworthy al Amin. His history with them is so clean and pristine, there's nothing about it, there's no like there's nothing could tarnish his personal history, the process I've never engaged in polytheism in the worship of Islam, he never called upon anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala.
So his history was clean. And this gives credit for who for those who seek the truth. Those who seek the truth when they see the integrity of the messenger
it's it makes it easier for them to connect to the message and figure it out. So Allah subhanaw taala dealt with that already. So this is why here zebra says
about the process. He says for Lily a chroma who ends allele Hill keytab Mustela Masana man had a Colombian hula hula the chroma Hobi, he won the rally. His hand never touched an idol in his life until Allah subhanaw taala revealed the message upon him. And in something else, you know, people in Mecca, they had the Hajj, they had the pilgrimage Quraysh they had the pilgrimage, pretty much a lot of what we do today in Hajj was done there. Why because it's that's the tradition of Ibrahim and Ismail and Emma Salaam. It was there, it was making power off. And sorry, standing in Arafat,
sleeping in was deliver spending three days in Mina and the wife again, same thing. But
the Arabs added a lot of idolatry. They added a lot of paganism to these rituals. One of the innovations or one of the heresies and the Buddha has that the people of Karachi introduced is that all the people who came from around the Arabian Peninsula on the day of alpha would stand in artifacts, or Irish did not stand in alpha, they stood outside artifacts in was deliver. They said why? Because we are the protectors of the Haram we're not like anyone else we have this different privilege we stand in was deliver only people from our age were allowed to do this.
But this was an introduction or this was as we said an innovation in the religion. The Prophet SAW Salem even during, during before receiving the message, he would stand with people in alpha in Hajj with the rest of the Arabs, unlike the people of polish, and they blamed him for that. But Allah subhanaw taala was still guiding him.
So the Prophet sallahu wa salam was, he felt this kind he felt being strange in Mecca. Why? Because people we said idolatry, paganism, worship of the idols became, like so ingrained in their way of life, that it has tarnished everything it has contaminated every aspect of their life. The whole culture, started building on idolatry and associating partners with Allah subhanho wa taala, their practices, their business, the trade, there was a lot of oppression, a lot of injustice, a lot of favoritism. And it was all about their religion, it was all interconnected as a very powerful cultural system. The Prophet system was hard for them to it was it was hard for him to fit in to
feel part of these people. So he felt himself to be so
Granger that, and his way he started withdrawing, he started withdrawing towards his, his 30s, mid 30s, the problem started to withdraw. So he developed the habit of what we call an attack north, the other called it at Dartmouth. And the Arabs had this act of worship, which is
some sort of seclusion and isolation, a person would withdraw from civilization. And they would go into a cave, on top of a mountain, or in the desert, or in the woods, in some kind of natural place where there is no civilization. No,
like population that will be by themselves, trying to figure out trying to think or answer the big questions about life. What is life about?
What's the meaning of life? What am I doing here? What's the point of me coming to this world and then leaving?
And these are questions any, when you study the history of any nation, you're going to find clues of this. Why? Because these, what they call them, existential questions are so central to us. There is a need inside us. And that's what we call Fidra. There is an there's an urge, there is a quest inside all of us to figure out what this life is all about.
And most people live in denial to these questions. This is why people medicate themselves with video games, with smoking, with drinking, partying, busy lifestyle, social life, social media. People want to keep their minds, the heads spinning, they want to keep their minds busy. Why? Because the moment they have some time by themselves, this quest is going to emerge from the hearts. It's gonna say, What are you doing here? What's the point behind your life? Why did you come into existence? What's the meaning of this whole creation? Why is it what why has it all been put together? What's the point behind it? These are questions that you cannot escape from. The only way is to keep yourself
in this kind of rat race or this treadmill of life where you're completely busy with daily distractions, daily distractions, daily distractions, so you do not get a moment of silence where you listen inside.
But the Arabs had this and it had an impact on them. So we have among the Arabs, people who refused paganism, who refused idolatry who refused this lifestyle, and they refused this kind of twisted religion that the Arabs had. One of the most famous of them was a man called Zaid Ibnu, Eminonu failure.
You know, Mark this name, Zaid, Ibnu, Ammar Ibn Lebanon or fail, he was one of the people of polish and noblemen in college he was known for, for a couple of things, one of them, you know, some of the Arabs had the habit, because, you know, just keep in mind as well, we're talking about the Arabian Peninsula
1500 years ago,
people at that time, there was a lot of tribal feuds and wars. And sometimes tribes would attack one another. And what this meant killing men, taking children and women as captives. It wasn't only the Arabian Peninsula, and the Arabian Peninsula, it was predominantly a tribal thing, one tribe against the other, or one faction against the other. In others, in other countries, it was the government doing that. So you have the Byzantine Empire was doing that to the people in what we call today, natural Syria. And what's known today is Turkey. So people oppressed by the government, there were considered to be law class citizens, they had no rights. And there were the landlords, or the people
who own the land, everyone else was working for them, and was barely, you know, just getting the basics of their life, because they were considered to be lesser kind of creation. And that's a kind of, so this kind of caste system was there in Persia was the same. But among the Arabs, it was this kind of viewds. And this kind of oppression was taking the shape of Tribal Wars. So when a tribe attacked another tribe that would kill their fighter men, and they would take the younger ones as captives and sell them as slaves. And they would take their women as well as sell sell them as slaves. That's how it happened. So the Arabs had a very powerful and predominant sense of honour to
and protection towards the women, the females. So for them, it was such a big disgrace to a tribe that any woman of them is taken as a captive, it would be a disgrace. Some of them would even kill themselves because of that. So they wanted to avoid that some of them wanted to avoid this by if they had a baby girl, that would get rid of her straightaway
would just get rid of her. We don't want her to grow up. Then she gets taken us captive. We don't want to have to go through this. So for them, they thought it made sense. So some of them would have this plan.
This says Aw, unbelievable failure was known for him as a social sort of worker social instinct. He himself was a social institution that so he kept in good in touch with everyone. Anytime you heard someone had a baby girl, he would watch them.
And if he could read any early signs that this man had an intention to bury that daughter or get rid of her, he would approach him straight away. He said, If you don't want her, I will take care. No one will know that she's your daughter, I'll take care of doctors, my own daughter, I will take care of her, I'll provide for her until she becomes an adult, then when she becomes an adult, I will contact you, if you want to take her back, take her back. If you don't want to take her back, you want to disown her completely, she will be my daughter, you have nothing to do with her. But don't kill her Don't murder her. He was known for this. And it's amazing how one person could do this in
such kind of a society, tribal society. But he was very successful in that he was known for that. He has a beautiful story about religion, about the about life, what life means and about worshipping Allah Subhan, Allah to Allah. So he traveled, he was very disenchanted with the religious life in the Arabian Peninsula. So he decided to search for religion outside. So he figured out the Arabs were all upon the same thing. So he decided to travel to Iraq to Syria, to find out if there is any true revelation from Allah, where are the remains of the religion of Ibrahim, he knew that the religion of Brahim was the true religion. So he wanted that.
But there was no clue about it except what the Arabs had. So he travels to Iraq and Syria and he meets some Jews, some Jewish rabbis. And he tells them basically, I want to, I want to know what your religion is because you claim it's a divinely it's a divine religions from Allah. She said, Yes, indeed. But in order to in order for you to join us, they gave him some conditions that seem to be out of the question for him. He said, basically, because they said, you can't get the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala or something like this. So he said, No, I'm searching for the Mercy of Allah. So it doesn't make sense that you call me to the anger of Allah or to get the anger of Allah
subhanaw taala. Then he moved on, he found some Christian priests, and hermits, and he asked them about their religion, what do you guys follow? They said, We just for us, you have to accept the original sin. You have to accept that you are faulty by nature by default. And then you obviously you have to accept the Trinity and so on and so forth. So you can purify yourself. He said, I'm running away from sin, from the original sin, you want to just give me that kind of stamp. I'm not gonna take it.
So he said, but I'm searching for the worship of the only creator. So the message that he got from some of the rabbis and priests that he met was, it seems you searching for the religion of Ibrahim. So he said, Well, what's the religion of Ibrahim Exactly? They said, can a Hanifa he was upon the straight path, he would worship only Allah, and he would distance himself from the anger of Allah or from the original sin. It was a religion of submit submission. He said, That's what I want. That's what I'm searching for. And that shows that we humans are born with a sense of fitrah a sense of footless strong sense of fitrah what is fitrah footrot Ibn Abbas, only Allah who explains that he
said, Al Fatah, Al Islam, when you are born as the prophet of cynicism, the authentic hadith imported by Al Bukhari, Kulu, the new lead to Allah fitrah each human being when they're born, they're born in a state of fitrah Do you born Muslim? Every human being is born Muslim? What does that mean? You know, Allah in your heart, you know, and you seek ALLAH. And you know, deep in your heart, it's not an intellectual knowledge, it's intuitive knowledge. It's in your gut, it's much deeper and stronger than intellectual knowledge. It's much deeper, it's it's, it's, it's in your core and the core of your being you know it.
So you know, Allah is the you know, that this life is temporary. And it's not the whole thing you know, you've been created for, for, for a wise reason, and for a purpose. And that you are, you have a sense of responsibility to fulfill the purpose of your existence, you had this, it's a knowing it's not something that you learn from the outside world, you're born with it, but you just have to tune into it, you have to listen to it, you have to be you have to detach yourself from distractions, so you can hear that voice of the Fatah calling upon you.
And this footrot as well has all the ethical principles, and this explains why all of us humanity, we all agree on the ethical principles. There is no one in this anyone in their sound mind no one would distance themselves from justice. No one would say justice is bad. No one would say this. No one would say kindness as a principle is bad. You might disagree with how you act on kindness or where you manifest kindness, but that's a situational factor. We're talking about kindness as a principle, no one would argue that
Forgiveness is a good thing. No one would argue that helping out others is a good thing. No one would no one wants to be called a thief or a liar. We all intuitively and so forth, right knows that these are these things are wrong. So that shows that when Allah subhanaw taala designed us, he designed us all Muslim. He designed us all upon the truth, we dishonest all with principles and ethics. So this was very obvious in the life of Zaid amrop. No, no fate. So when he was told about Ibrahim and he said, How do I find followers of Ibrahim they said they're extinct. There's none of them alive. But and that's the knowledge of the People of the Scripture. They had some signs in the
Scripture in the Torah, and in the Gospels. They had signs about the time the imminent the time when the Prophet was eminent when his prophet had was when he was about to be sent, and they could read the signs. So they were ready. They were actually anxious, and they were anticipating that the Prophet would be sent around this time. I'm going to explain some mentioned some examples, actually, where some of the
priests some of the scholars of the Christians and the Jews, they moved to Medina GF rib, ye, and yesterday was a desert, but a sham which is Syria, Jordan, Palestine, today.
That was the best part of the best country to live or the best area to live in at that time. It was so fertile now it's much, you know, dissertation has taken taken over. But it was a very fertile, very rich in all resources, the best lifestyle, the best living standards were in that area. So a lot of these priests rabbis, they left tribes, whole tribes left that area left Palestine, why TF rib, because in their books, they knew this was the time of the final prophet to be sent, and we want to be there. So hopefully, he would come from among us. That's why they traveled traveled to the desert to the MBA. Some of them explained like someone called Immanuel Eban was a very respected
man, Jewish rabbi in Medina, and he Ephorate himself when he was dying, he said to his people, he said, Do you know why I left the land of fertility and vegetation and civilization and came to this desert. That's what he says on his deathbed. They said why he said, because it's time for a prophet to be sent out. I was hoping to see him to meet him this is why he came here. But he died before the Prophet SAW Salem was known.
So they didn't I'm gonna fail was told
there is no followers to followers of Ibrahim of the religion of Ibrahim now, but there's good news, where you come from where you come from. A prophet is very likely to be sent around these times. So go back where you came from.
So the competition was in their minds and their interpretation of the People of the Scripture, their interpretation was, it was either yes strip, which is, later later on, became to be known as the medina or Mecca. But they were leaning more towards the strip, which was obviously where the prophets Allah migrated,
says Aw, emerald and Phil comes back to Makkah, and he resides in Mecca waiting for the Prophet to appear, waiting for the Prophet appeal, as Smith, the daughter of Abu Bakr
of the Allahumma she said, I remember as a little girl, I remember seeing Z wo amrop. No, no fail in Mecca, sitting near al Qaeda.
Shouting at the people of Makkah, he says yeah, or Irish lace. I mean, come on Allah, Mila Ibrahim Ilana, he says them all Quraysh there's none of you is upon the religion of Ibrahim, except for me. You guys have adopted so many, you know, twisted stuff that you will no longer on the regional blame. It's only me. Then he said he used to say, y'all blow it for Allah, you would join Budo club it took like in an era before ILAHA.
So he used to say, Oh Allah, if I know how to worship you, I will do it. But I don't know. The only thing I know that I feel I could worship us by doing it like this. So he would put his forehead on his palm making sujood that's the only thing he could figure out by himself because there's no revelation. It's only his footwork, calling him.
That's a powerful call of the fifth law. And this is what happens when humans really start to pay attention to what Allah put inside them. And imagine when you add on top of this, the guidance of the revelation.
The reason why most people don't benefit from the Quran is that their minds are busy.
The minds are busy and attached. The minds are busy and attached. And this is why when the mind is busy because the Quran when you hear it when you read it when you look
Learn it. It goes through your ears, or through your eyes if you read into your mind into your brain
and if your brain is absorbent is not busy is not overwhelmed with distractions. It becomes receptive when it's receptive, receptive, it takes it to your heart, when it takes it your heart to heart, the Quran meets your fifth law, and that's when the magic happens. That's when guidance happens. And that's why the Prophet SAW Selim when he warned against the Hawaii bridge. He was the coach. What did he say? He said the Quran they recite the Quran, Allah Yuja was Otara to him, they recite the Quran but it doesn't go beyond their collarbone here.
What does that mean? The scholar said the Quran stays in their tongue in their head, but never travels to the hut
never travels to the heart, because it has to go to the heart to awaken the Fatah.
So the deviation of the knowledge came from the fact that they took the Quran as recitation and intellectual understanding but they did not allow it to go into the heart to awaken the fitrah and let it unfold and inform it that's why for example, even the taming of a hammer Allah he says a one machete and there's a very important statement he says Allah machete
in Namur, who have been fed throttle more can mela be Shariati Zilla. He says the reality of Islam the how Islam really comes about into someone's life is by the fitrah that is completed and complemented by the revelation by the Sharia and that is sent down.
So it's not that oh, you put the call on your head that's it. No, you have to take the Quran to heart. You have to take the Quran to ha This is why Allah Subhan Allah says in Nephi Dalek when Allah talks
about some of his signs he says interview daddy candidate Keira Lehmann can Allahu Allah.
Alper somehow Shaheed Allah Subhana Allah says, Indeed in these in everything that we mentioned, there is a reminder, there is a reminder for everyone who has a heart, what does that mean? The fertilizing the heart,
if your heart is alive, and the fertilizer is there, and so this what you hear from the Quran is going to fall into your fitrah is going to remind you is going to awaken you so you will awaken from the state of ruffler or heedlessness. Oh Alka some our shade or if he doesn't have a living heart yet, but at least this person is searching. So they open the ears to listen attentively. So no distractions, the channel is open goes through the ear into the mind, then it goes into the heart. That's when the Quran benefits apart from this, it doesn't benefit. It will em has a beautiful kind of explanation on this simple verse. And the actually that's the beginning of his book alpha it.
That's the first notes in his book and for wide. He talks about this and he explains how the revelation
how it meets the fitrah. That's when it as we said this is when the magic starts. So back to the demo. I'm gonna I'm gonna fade ZEW I'm gonna fail as we said, this is how he lived his life. Do you know what his reward is? This thing was a failure by the way, he knew the prophets of Allah Azza he met him. He met him and he saw him
but he died before revelation.
He died before Revelation And the Prophet SAW Selim says something beautiful about him. He says.
You bathroom Zed. prosomnus talking about Zaidan you buy through your woman? Yeah. And that you Oh Martin ohada He will be resurrected on the day of judgment as a nation by himself.
So what does that mean? Where is he? He's in Ghana.
He's a believer. He's a believer Subhanallah now Zaidan amrev No failed by the way his son just keep that in mind for for your information. Ze Dibner amagno No Fail.
His son is Seyyed avenues eight who say doonas eight.
Who is say divans? Eight
Okay, good. So we have two pieces of information. He's from
the 10 who are promised paradise and I shall on mobile sharing number sharing. Bilgin is one from the 10 companions who are promised paradise is one of whom I shall MOBA sharing. He's also married to Fatima, the sister of Amana hottub so he's gonna have Bob's brother in law.
And I'm gonna hubbub
like beat him down so many times because he wasn't Muslim. That prayer talks about becoming a muslim.
Zaid, he says, look at the law 821
basically I'm gonna have Bob
hanged him on the wall. Really hang them on the wall, he hangs it. inside him is eight he hangs him on the wall and he was punching him
that's what I'm gonna do before becoming a muslim.
So I'm gonna really abused him at the early stages of Islam. So that's the AW, Abdullah failed father of side Zimlet I'm moving. There were some other people as well, who was searching for the truth like, what a cub Nofal?
What aka ignorant often, the uncle of Khadija will be Allah Juana. But welcome. No, no Phil was upon Christianity.
Can Tana Sol findra Helia he searched he searched his search let them the best that he could find was Christianity. Well, we have to point out that Christianity at that time, was not exactly what we know about Christianity today. So there was a lot of mixtures. There was a lot of mixing. So there were the Unitarians. Still, there was a lot of more Hadean among the Christians at that time. There was a lot of people still worshipping Allah subhanaw taala alone, and they did not believe that and mercy and 70 million, or Jesus peace be upon him. They did not believe that He was God or the son of God. They didn't believe that. So there was there were there was these people who had the Trinity.
But among many of the Christians that were those who did not believe in the Trinity. So it seems that what aka Ivanova was upon was upon monotheism worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Alone, but what he did, he learnt
Hebrew, so he could speak Hebrew, he could read Hebrew. So he was reading the Bible in the original language and its original language, at least at that time.
So this was the religious state, among the
among the Mexicans or in Makkah. Now the Prophet SAW Selim.
As we said, he started he started taking to the cave, going to the top of the mountain, having what we call the 10, of having this gun this moment. So these times of seclusion, isolation, he'd be by himself, just really contemplating the creation, what it means what's the, what's the point behind, being alive, and so on, and so forth. And this is a very important stage before receiving the message. And it shows the prophets I said, I'm detached from his from this society.
And this, this, by the way, this takes what we call ethical courage. Because most people are blinded what we call by what we call social evidence. People follow the majority. If a trend, okay, let's just follow everyone. And the problem is that most of this happens unconsciously, we unconsciously follow whatever is there, whatever is there.
But this shouldn't be the case. This should not be the case, specifically with the bigger questions with ethical questions. You cannot just follow the crowd. You cannot just flock with the herd. It's not the same. You have to hear you have to listen to a higher source, higher source, Revelation, coupled with your fitrah with your natural state of belief, and that's the purest, that's the best that you as a human being that you can reach is to be true to your nature. So our nature is essentially pure as human beings, our our own nature is, is upon worship of Allah knowledge of Allah love of Allah, and is upon ethical principles. That's why Allah Subhan Allah says in the Surah, that
we all know. So what attain what Tina was a tune, to be seen in Allah Subhan. Allah says, luck, God, her luck on an insertion fee as any tech when we created man in the best, and the best what that coin
shape, most of us automatically think physical shape, or we better than animals, like animals walk on for, we walk in to we can stand upright, and like our faces are more symmetrical, they have more balance and so on and so forth. That's only one side because the queen in Arabic means design.
Design is not only physical,
isn't only physical. This applies to mental,
emotional, spiritual, so Man is created in the best design, in every respect, physical, emotional, mental.
You name it spiritual men is created in the best. This is why when you are born, you're born as Muslim. But what happens as the prophet Salam says in the second half of the Hadith about what
Ah hoo hoo wee Danny here, oh, you're not Serani here, are you mad Giussani then his parents thought every child is born in a state of football meaning Muslim, pure in the best form in the purest that a human being could ever be. But it's the parents through the culture through the upbringing, that they take that child from their original state, into another state
into another state of
could be Christianity, Judaism, any any philosophy, any culture, any religion. So basically, our act of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, learning Islam, the reality of it is, is just making our journey back to our original purity.
That's the reality of it, we making our journey back to our original purity. Look at hedge the province of Islam says men had given me off while I'm here. So, Roger, okay, only one other
problem says Whoever makes hedge and he does not engage in lewdness or foul language, or any arguments or engage, it doesn't engage in any bad thing.
When he comes back, he comes as the day he was born, in terms of his slate is clean.
So that's the best we are as humans when we were born.
We were the best. But we take this journey to learn more about this life. But we are supposed to make the journey back to our purity over to most of us to learn about life, we lose our way back to the fitrah. But we are supposed to learn about this life, but then use this situational knowledge, this technical knowledge about this life in order to help our fitrah translate itself in practical terms, in practical terms, so whatever goodness Allah has put in you, it is translated into human worldly terms. That's what it means.
That's why we have to go through this stage of upbringing. But so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as you said, he started spending time by himself contemplating the creation of Allah subhanaw taala asking the bigger questions and calling upon Allah to guide him to show him the way to show him the way and the President started to notice strange things. So he says for example, he would be walking down the street and he would hear something like a greeting someone greeting him, he would look around he would see nothing. And when he tried to search for the source of the of the of the greeting, he found it was a stone.
So the problem was that it says in the authentic hadith, in Nila Arif will be Makita are in the ladder for Hi John, can you sell them only a couple of 30 B Maccha. There is a stone in Metka specific stone that I know that before receiving revelation used to give me salaam
every time I pass by it, it gives me seller.
That's not the whole, the only thing the Prophet SAW Selim himself. He started hearing sounds and seeing lights to the point where he really feared for himself. So he goes to Khadija every time he goes to Hadith, Kalani, he says to her, I'm worried about myself. I hear sounds, voices, and I see lights, he was worried there was some kind of gin possession or influence there. And the problem you're gonna find some of the orientalists some people who take enmity adopt enmity to the Prophet SAW Salem and to Islam, they start digging here destroy, start, they start doing, you know, playing some dirty games to say, okay, that shows that he wasn't mentally fit, there was something wrong
And the problem, all of this is interpretation. It's all interpretation. You know, when you approach someone's life or someone's behavior, with pre, pre conditioned mind, you already have an idea, I don't like this person, you're going to interpret with it, whatever you they do in a negative light, as simple as that. So they started creating these doubts, but the prophets of Salaam, simply these What were these, these were angels.
Allah was ALLAH SubhanA. Allah was preparing him for that moment of revelation. So the province of him felt there was something going on. There was something happening in his life, something else as well was going on in his life. Especially like when he was 39. Every dream he had became true.
Every dream he saw with just next day, he would see it as reality. That's quite shocking.
It's shocking and alarming. So it may it drew the province or some attention that everything I see in my sleep next day it becomes a reality. There's something there that's why a one on Abu Dhabi Rasul Allah He saw us in the middle Why cannot wrote your sadaqa the first like stage
of revelation was seeing true dreams that would turn to be true. So that was the state of the prophets awesome. And every time the Prophet Salam saw something like this, he would go back to Khadija all the Allahu Allah and he would express his concerns. And Khadija only Allah one, how would calm him down? She would say, don't worry about yourself. You are a principled man, you help the needy you are.
You're a person of good manners. And none of these bad things could happen to you and must be something good. Now there are signs that hottie generally allow and have being the niece of Walter Nurofen, who had knowledge about Revelation. And obviously he was expecting a prophet to be there,
that she had some knowledge from her uncle, and that she through that knowledge, Allah Subhan Allah guided her to see that in the prophets awesome. So it seems that she was expecting Mohamed Salah salam to be the final prophet and messenger. It's obvious when you look at the narrations. How Khadija was behaving towards the prophets of Salaam, how good she was to him, how she would comfort him at times or when he when he saw strange things.
Yeah, there's a conclusion inevitable conclusion that Khadija knew what was going on.
She had a very strong hunch that this was him, that this was him even sometimes you could take that conclusion as far as to say that even when she initiated the marriage, her interest in him, it seems she had something. Maybe it wasn't a conscious idea, but maybe it was a hunch, a gut feeling. That's very likely. So he generally Allah Juana was very supportive of the Prophet SAW Salem. One thing I want to bring to attention here as well. Since we're talking about Ebola, we said Ebola is learning the lesson, then crossing over into your own life into your own circumstances. The prophets also then found so much support from Khadija so much support from Khadija Roby Allahu Anna so much
support, actually looking at that she was his best friend. She was his best friend. So every time he had a concern, he had a doubt he wanted someone to talk to someone to confide in, someone to listen to him, he would go straight to Felicia.
And this is how a wife should be.
This is how a wife should be to her husband. And this is how her husband should be to his wife.
If a husband doesn't feel safe and comfortable, opening up and speaking to his wife and sharing his concerns, his most intimate and personal concerns.
There's something wrong with the relationship.
If the wife doesn't feel comfortable, sharing her thoughts and concerns and doubts and fears with her husband, there's something there isn't there is there isn't enough trust there. There isn't enough trust, there isn't enough
relationship. If a wife fears her husband judgment, if she's going to share her ideas with him.
This, this relationship is not completely healthy.
Same applies on the other side. If a husband cannot trust or cannot count on his wife, to go back and share and even show his the weakest side of who he is, be vulnerable in front of his wife.
That's not a good relationship.
The prophets I send them in his most vulnerable moments would turn only to Khadija cuz she never judged him.
So if husband and wife judge each other,
they haven't worked right to build a relationship. That doesn't mean they should get divorce. Some sometimes people jump to this conclusion, know what it means. Okay, what can I do now to fix it? What can I do to improve it? Not say fix it, but what can I do to improve it now? Oh, I'm 60 years old. I've been married for 40 years now. But I don't feel comfortable, you know, really opening up to my wife. Well, okay, it's never too late.
It's never too late.
So actually, the prophets are sort of one of the most important support systems that he had probably the the most important support system he had in his life was his wife Khadija Robbie Allah Anna.
And this is where the second comes in. Allah Subhana. Allah says that one of the wisdoms why he created spouse's credit as a spouse's John McMullen and postgame as virgin he made from amongst yourselves.
Spouses, later schooner
Oh la ha. So you will find peace when you retire to them, you find? Well actually, there's no one word to explain sukhna or Second. Second means second means residents.
Means residents, man and you find residence. You know, when you when you when you go back, spend time with your spouse. What does that mean? It's a retiring place. It's when you don't have to put on any mask. You are who you are, you're so vulnerable, you're so open. Because if a human being by the way, hides their feelings, they can never feel comfortable.
If you're not in peace with your feelings in a certain situation, you feel being judged people around you are critical.
So the the place where you should have no judgment, no fear of judgment, we can really find the sukhna the speeds this tranquility, discomfort is at home with your spouse.
And the last one that says the reason he made you spouse is that you'll find this feeling that you so comfortable, you're so comfortable with your spouse. So if you can't find this, what's the point?
If you can't find this, what's the point?
Allah is saying that's the wisdom. Obviously, there are other wisdoms like reproduction. But that's a very important factor. Having discovered the prophets of Allah blessed him, with a wife like this, with a wife like this, and this shows really a lot of the why they say in Arabic commercial probably I think Arabs were even borrowed that from non Arabs. It said what I call the Algerian Aleem in amroha. Behind every great man, there's a woman
behind every great man, there is a woman because of man is not comfortable at home.
There's no place to recharge, there is no place to build himself again. Because the wear and tear outside in the world, especially these days, is, is very overwhelming.
And we human beings are essentially relational in the sense, we thrive on connection, human connection. That's how we rejuvenate. This is why they say a man by himself is no man. Humans cannot live alone, you might say I don't want to depend on anyone, I want to do it by myself. You're not going to do anything. That's not the nature of human beings. Human beings are all about relationships. That's how we thrive. That's how we grow. This is why in Islam, you'll find a lot of community this is why the fund Salah isn't congregation.
Allah could have just made humans that could reproduce without meeting. But Allah didn't do it like this because humans need that kind of relationship. And that's why Allah is ahead. Because he's a summit. He doesn't need anyone. He stands alone. By the creatures, no one stands alone. It's part of who we are. If you fight against this nature, you're just destroying yourself. We humans need that kind of safety, that kind of peace where we can confide into someone who we can open up, just be ourselves and not hide our emotions, not fight our emotions. Just be who we are. Just relax because the moment you hold back your emotions, or you deny your emotions, and that's what you need to do
mostly outside because there's a lot of eyes latching on, you're trying to put you down critique, you criticize, you'll find a fault and you're not because there's something wrong with you, but because of their own problems. People criticize you not because you have issues, you might have an issue, right? But the reason people are criticizing you is not because they're worried about your problems, because they have problems, but they don't know how to heal them how to treat them, so they can they take it on you. That's how humans behave. That's the psychology behind criticism by the most of criticism. So, if a man or a woman cannot find a place or a space, where they can just
be themselves without wearing any mask without pretending
they will die early. They will die early. Life will be very difficult for them. Very difficult for them. So Allah Subhan Allah bless the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by having this wonderful wife Heidi Geraldine Allah wanna look at the most difficult time in the life of the prophets of salaam who was behind him, Khadija Hello the Allahu Allah and is why the Prophet Salam remembered her over and over again after her death. And even the prophets of salaam had the job the Allahu Ana had a sister called Hala Hala.
the prophet son would be in his house. Sometimes Hala would come and visit the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim and Medina if the prophets of salaam heard the sound, or the voice of of how they would say Allahu Mahara is it all?
Hello as here, he would be so happy to hear the voice of Hala, the sister of Khadija and he would go and greet her.
He had gone greet her.
Even the President would mention Khadija, you know when the Prophet was salam, like when they slaughtered lamb, around Moorish sheep or anything, our camel, the profit is awesome. We'll take the best part of that animal and send it to the Friends of Khadija.
The Friends of Khadija and one day I shall be Allah Juana. Actually, she says
Khadija was an old woman, you still remember her? Like, you're still just bringing her name over and over again.
The Prophet says to her shall do Allah Juana.
I'm honored to be here naked, the bananas were said certainly Hina Tarakan Enos, she believed in me when everyone disbelieved in me.
She supported me when everyone let me down. What can what can and she was and she was and she did and she did and you will start numbering so many things. So many of the merits of Khadija until I showed you alone, I said, I wish that he wouldn't just he would just stop.
That's how the process of them kept always remembering hottie generally Allahu anha never forgetting her fevers and her support.
So one of the pillars of success for any human being is to have a supportive spouse, who's doesn't judge them, who doesn't judge them,
who respects them, love them, supports them, and who accepts the fact that they are human, and they have mistakes, sometimes with our spouses with our children, like we treat them as if they have to be perfect. If they make one mistake, we go after them.
You know, there's no human being, there's no human being without mistakes. If they have no mistakes, they're angels. They're not human beings. It's normal to have faults to have weaknesses. It's normal. It's just normal. It's normal to fall into sin, it's just human. To expect someone to be perfect is very unrealistic. And it makes you lose that relationship with that person makes you critical towards them judgmental towards them. And once you do this to that person, they will treat you the opposite automatically, unconsciously, they will just do the same to you. Even though sometimes passively. If they don't have power.
They will do it passively. So you will feel they're judging you, there'll be no relationship. So this is why it's important to have this kind of relationship. It's set you on the right track for you know, being successful, being productive, being healthy, being balanced, and Allah subhanaw taala granted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this type of wife, wife Khadija lovely Alana, she was the best support ever. And so during this period, the Prophet SAW Salem things escalated with the prophets of Allah and he was salam and sha Allah, something big happens during that period of his life towards his late 30s, something extraordinary happens that leaves him completely baffled
and bewildered, he doesn't know what to do.
So inshallah next time which will be next week, and shall also the Holocaust on next week. If we live till next Friday, inshallah we'll see what happened next in the time of the Prophet SAW Salem, and will probably as well talk about Khadija Lila and her and her support and her help and what it meant to the prophets of Salaam and to the subsequent events in his life and in the history of Islam.
In general, so.
So we'll stop here in sha Allah is Aqua Malachite, almost Allah Who cinnamon and Amina Mohammed and while early also happy, was salam. We have some time for some questions. So we'll give priority to questions that are related directly to what we were talking about. Anything in the life of the prophet saw Salem up until this moment. Any questions, concerns? Yep. You mentioned that.
The like the slave,
slave, his name, his last name.
We didn't end up someone could give your name.
Okay. When the Prophet SAW Selim, he bought Zaid, and he adopted him as his son. He freed him and adopted his Jana and he gave him his names he didn't know Mohammed. This was the practice among the Arabs. And in the early stages of Islam, this as well was the practice. You could adopt someone and take them as your own son and give them your name. But later on Allah Subhana Allah revealed a ruling which prohibited this practice.
So a prohibited this practice. And Allah Subhan Allah says unsalted has an odor Oh homely, him who were acceptable, and Allah named them after their real fathers. This is justice with Allah.
So he said do not take them as a dog adopted. Yeah. So liter one, this was this ruling was abrogated. It was changed, and to, to a prohibition. So in Islam, you cannot adopt someone and named them after yourself. You can take them into your, into your house, and look after them and revere them and so on and so forth. But they don't become your son. You don't become your son. And if it's, for example, let's say it's a girl, maybe there's a girl who's five years old, you adopt her.
When she becomes an adult, she has to wear hijab in your presence.
She has to wear hijab, she's a stranger to you.
She is a stranger to you, although she grew up in your house, we can still look after her and provide for her, and so on and so forth. But the rulings that apply in Islam to any foreign woman to you, it applies to hear his mom.
Yeah. And also with your children, same thing. She she has to cover from your mail from your son's.
Okay. Any other questions?
Any other questions?
Or questions? Okay, you know, you're aware of the car competition, right?
So the books are available in the, in the main office, there's a zero competition, I think the there's a very good price for first place for a good price price. So there's a book. And it's nicely written questions and answers. It's a it's very easy. So the point here is to get more exposure to the life of the prophet saw Salem, by means of this competition, so you can get the book. And you can read the book and learn because the questions of the competition are going to come from this book. And it's quite comprehensive, but easy to go through as well. So it's good to teach it to the kids to kids. And it's easy as well, because it's question and answer question answer. This makes it
easier than, like a narration than aerations. So it's something recommended because I find it very important with a younger generation is that they know their history. You know, the way we build our identity as human beings, we have to have some outlook on the past, we need to know where we're coming from, we need to know history. A nation or a generation that's disconnected from its history has no identity has no identity. So we need to have this connection to history. If we don't know history, how are we going to take pride in it? How are we going to see ourselves as an extension of this of these generations? How are we going to see this? So it's very important to know, you know,
you had to learn our history and especially from the time of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending them
Okay, that's a good question.
It was the practice of the people have alleged that they will touch the idols Rob, because that's sort of seeking blessings in Islam.
In Mecca, there are two things you're meant to touch. And they're considered to be an act of worship, touching the Blackstone, and if you can kiss it, that would be great. And there is El militarism, which is the door of al Qaeda, the area underneath that's called the militarism. The Prophet SAW Selim, he actually attached his body to it. So he would put his hands like this, and let his chest his face, you know, stick to that part of al Qaeda, and he would call upon Allah subhanaw taala it's a form of showing Allah subhanaw taala how desperate you are for his help. So that's called a model tasm it's under the gate or the door that you see in Aqaba. The other thing we touch,
as we said, Isn't handled as what preferably get to kiss it. But make sure you don't get a black eyes, someone's elbow just and most like now it's almost it's really like, practically it's almost impossible to go there without hurting someone or getting hurt. Really. So if that's the case, preferably avoid it because I mean, it's not worth causing Muslim harm or getting harmed yourself for that. So yes, these things things are to any kind any other kind of rubbing or, or seeking blessings physically.
Today these days
He's is prohibited. So we don't seek blessings from the graves or the grave of the Prophet SAW Salem, or anything else. Some people say, Okay, that's a hair from the prophetess. And that's the sort of the prophets of Salaam. The problem here is that with what we have today, there's been a lot of forgery in the remains of the prophet or some wherever it's called the hair, whatever it's called piece of cloth of the prophets I send him or his helmet, or is. So most of the pieces that are available here, there's, there's been a lot of forgery. So it's very hard to verify that this is actually from the Prophet SAW Salem. So practically speaking, most likely now, there's nothing for
us that we touch for blessings except it has a last word and then multi ism. Apart from this, practically speaking, there's nothing so those will go to the graves or go to any blessed place, and they rub themselves against us or the hands against it, or even someone problems sometimes we will come to scholars or to you know, righteous people, and they start rubbing like their hands against them seeking blessings. That's unacceptable in Islam. That's unacceptable in Islam. The person in front of you is a human being. And there's no blessing. The blessings come from Allah subhanho wa taala.
Well, during the life of the prophet saw Salem, yes, the Prophet SAW Salem touching him, anything from him, was considered to be blessed. So yes, but practically, as we said, most of the remnants will not show even if they were from the Prophet SAW Salem or not.
Can we say?
That's a good question. What a couple of Nofal was a Christian?
And so do we say there were Christians in the Arabian Peninsula? And was there an influence of the Prophet SAW Salem? Some orientalists use this. They say, okay, he got there are some people. But the thing is, the prophets of salaam had very limited encounters with what a covenant alpha. The encounter he had was when he first received revelation, what a couple of Nofal
Hadees, early Allah when I went to work with an orphan, he calmed it down. He reassured her. And then he saw the prophesied and the following day, and we're going to come to this. And he reassured the prophetess on calmed him down. He said, what you're experiencing is the same as what Musa alayhis salam experienced.
And he said it when you are sent, I wish that I would be there to defend you.
So the proxim had very limited encounters with well, it's very unlikely that he has done that he learned anything from him. That's it.
Else what are called no fool was a blind man. And he kept to himself. He wasn't a man, a public figure at all. So he kept him it was a hermit. So there was he had no students. He didn't teach anyone. So hamazon learned from him, you would find anyone who teaches you would find students, but he had no students. He had no followers.
Okay, among the Arabian Peninsula. Yeah. Yeah. Next one is now considered to be North Yemen, South Saudi Arabia. At those times, there was hardly any connection, there without any connection. And so any Christians, the Arabian Peninsula, there was pretty much none in the Arabian Peninsula, except for the Iran, mainly in Iran, and which is the south of Saudi Arabia now. And it was a small minority. And the Arabs, by the way, held Christianity in a very negative light. Like they took it against Christians that they worshipped a man or they were they they attributed the sun to Allah like the Arabs saw this in shame. That was, that was a source of shame for anyone among the Arabs.
So it was a big taboo among it was, as we say, ape, among the Arabs today, this, so they had this issue against Christians in general. So they dealt with the Jews in a better light, while the Christians know, there was when when that so much in favor of the Christians at all, because they thought their belief didn't make sense at all. And it was so much of as I said, sense of shame there. So they couldn't take it. They didn't take it.
There was one we could take one more question before we close Yes.
No, we don't know if the prophets, as far as I know.
To the best of my knowledge, I haven't seen in the regions where the prophet is Allah mentions a person from Quraysh prior to Islam, who will be resurrected by himself in oil who would be engine Yeah, so it's and generation doesn't state that he's in Jannah. But
It seems to be like that because he says he'll be resurrected by himself as one nation. So that's indicative that this hadith is in Imam Muhammad is narrated by Imam Muhammad. Yeah. By does that Kamala Harris Allah said I'm gonna have you know Mohamed Salah next week inshallah the Halacha will be on again after maghrib
