It seems people today are breaking their foster home right.
So as promised inshallah we will carry on.
We said the prophets of Allah and you send them at the beginning of receiving the revelation or meeting to breed a Salaam.
After the first meeting Gibreel a Salam did not come to the Prophet SAW Salem for a while. And depending on different sources, there is some kind of disagreement as to how long this period was. Some narrations indicate their desire to simply to be the strongest it was about three years, some indicator was two and a half and some sources indicated was two years, nonetheless, still a long period of time. So long period of time since the first revelation, so the Prophet SAW Selim was very anxious, looking forward to see Jabril but it took such a long time for Debian and Instagram to
come. And one day the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he President didn't give up. When narration indicates that the Prophet saw some every time he felt really frustrated. After a long period of time to be not coming to him the profit somewhat felt really bad. So he was
on one of the mountains on top of one of the mountains and Gibreel came to him two o'clock and she breathed a sigh came to him or appeared to him and he said Dr. Mohammed and tell Rasulullah what energy breed
um Mohammad Rasool Allah or energy or Antara, so Allahu Akbar, energy breed. So this happened a few times when narration indicates this, that during this period of three times, he would see Gibreel Alayhis Salam, we are Muhammad and tell us who Allah will energy breed.
So after this period, the person one day wasn't one on top of one of the mountains. And basically, he hears some sound coming from above. So he looks upwards. And he sees Jabril Alehissalaam in His original form,
in His original form,
and he has blocked the horizon is completely blocked the horizon
and he's got 60 wings. He's got 60 wings, so as you relate to them, the Prophet SAW Salem. So Djibouti Alayhis Salam, in His original form two times, two times. One of them was this. One of them was this. The other one, it was the first time it was the first time. So this one the time, the time the purchases from surgery in Islam in His original form,
were considered ovac. He had blocked the whole horizon. He blocked the whole horizon.
the President says upon seeing him I fell to my knees. Upon seeing the real Islam I felt to me in such a profound scene to see the greenery salaam, in His original form, and the creation of the angels is profound, is not simple. Gibreel is the greatest of all the angels. The angels themselves and the angel the prophets says the distance between the elope and the tip of the shoulder can only be crossed in
400 years, someone riding on a horse for 400 years they can cross that distance between their ear lobe and the top of the shoulder. So narration indicator was not in a hurry if and it was 70 years. But nonetheless, imagine how big an angel is Jabril la Salaam is bigger than the normal angels. You bring any sermons bigger than the normal angels. So can you imagine the prophets of the salam seeing Him in His original form? He said he fell to his knees the the Arabic word for Jeff to follow and Minho I fell on my knees and on my hands out of fear. Out of fear the problem fell on his hands and on his knees out of fear upon seeing debris, and he SLM
upon this process alone, what he does he runs away to his house, out of fear. And as soon as he says to
hurry God Allah who hasn't made organism Maloney or the fear only the theory, and this is the time Allah Subhana Allah reveals the verse ultimate death and Madatha Are you home with death or you who are shrouded shrouded in your blanket, or you'll get third unfair and this now it's time to convey the message. It's time
To warn, so the province was selling his way this policy you know BRB across the province was made a profit was made a profit. So he's changed from the state of a normal man into profit hood with a clock
receiving the revelation, turn the problem into a profit from a normal man into a prophet. And
but a prophet as some of the scholars say, A prophet is someone who has given revelation but he doesn't have to necessarily convey it. He doesn't have to necessarily convey it there's a difference between Nabi and Rasool Nabi usually translate as a prophet of a soul as a messenger. Okay, so an OB is someone who's given revelation,
but is not necessarily commanded to convey it is not necessarily commanded to convey it. A messenger is someone who is given revelation, but he is commanded to convey it. You see the difference between a noble wa what reseller Okay, between prophethood and messenger ship.
So the prophets Allah no be a crop, he became profit with a crop. We're all Sierra building with the film. And he became a messenger within Madatha because it says unfair and that to stand up and convey and warn. What I'm looking for Kimber, basically, there's a whole message here.
So that happened three years later, most likely three years after the first encounter with Gibreel le Ceylon. So at this moment, you can imagine the problem yes, he was in fear. But you can imagine also the happiness in the heart of the prophets. Upon seeing debris again, upon receiving the message again, upon getting getting more clarity with regards to his message and his mission. So the prophets of salaam knows what it is about. It is about worshiping Allah subhanaw taala alone and sharing this message conveying this message with others. Now the Prophet SAW Selim, as soon as he gets this, we know already that Khadija is a Muslim she believed in him in the first time and
what a couple of Nofal was a Muslim but he had he now he's is that at this moment in time, what a couple months had passed away. So at this moment, the problem starts speaking to people about his message. So he speaks first to Abu Bakr obey Allah one, Abu Bakr I love the Allahu Anhu what's the name of Abu Bakr
was the name of all because his proper name
was someone give me his full name
Abdul Rahman or Abdullah Abdullah have no
have a half a who has a full version of his name
Abdullah if you know
of the love North man, if you don't have you have to have a loved one with management to be able to have.
Okay, so the person speaks with him. He says I was commanded to convey the message to people and that's to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. Abu Bakr straight away what does he say? He says So doctor, he says you're telling you're telling the truth? Straight away? No questions. Okay, not trying to figure out anything is Rosen just told him. I was given the message to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone, and I was commanded to convey it.
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said sadaqa you have told the truth. So he believed in him, this is why it will buckle the low and who was named acidic, the one who is truthful, one was truthful or the one who truly believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now something we have to understand the prophets I send them was not unaware of what was going on, what was going on in Mecca keys now, the the message of the Prophet Adam is about worshiping Allah alone, all these idols, all this kind of lifestyle, all these rituals, all these religious practices are false and wrong. But they are so very well embedded in the culture and the way way of life in the lifestyle of these people. That is
very problematic now, to go against it very problematic to even fight against it. So this also gives us some kind of indication that when you are fighting against or when you have a message that goes contrary to the norms of the people, okay? You don't have to do that in one go. You don't have to do that in one go. So the prophets of salaam was aware that this was actually a very
Very dangerous endeavor ongoing against the people of Mecca. Their tradition the lifestyle has been going on probably for hundreds of years. Their personal lifestyle is built on it. Social Life is built on it. Business and finances completely built on this. Everything else warfare is built on it. Alliances, relationships,
politics, it's all built on this. Now, you're coming to challenge all of this. Now you are coming to challenge all of this such a big huge thing. The problem was aware of the danger or the risks that he was taking. So what did how did he start his Dawa in secret? One to one, one to one speaking one to one so the first one we know that he spoke to was Abu Bakr radi, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah and wonderworker believed in him straight away. Who else did the person speak to in the early stages?
His wife is already we said she was the first one and the human of your target probably Allah who I leave no guitar. Lovely Alana was cousin and Ally at this time was very young around we talking about 10 to 12 years old
10 to 12 years old. Can Ebola man the Afghan she was his early teen teenage years. early teens that's what I leave now with all this how old he was when he accepted Islam some some narrations indicate that even though we Talib was brought up in the house of the Prophet SAW Selim, but these narrations are historic historical narrations they're not necessarily like solid and strong. They just comes historical accounts that I didn't know because I grew up in the house of the profit center but there is no as I said, there is no nothing very solid there. So I leave No, we thought it was one of the early Muslims.
And he was one of the first people who ever prayed with the Prophets Allah Allahu Allah. He was one of the first people ever prayed with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
and now the prophets of salaam just because of the Bacala low and who was the first really to believe in him and support him without question without asking for more details. One day
some people said something one of the companions later on in Medina, someone says something that upsets Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah. No, it upsets a bucket of Allah. The Prophet Solomon, he had this he he he actually reprimanded whoever caused trouble to Abu Bakr or distressed because he says, in Allah Bethany alaykum Fulltone kilobits, Wirkkala AbuBakr and Sadhak Allah spanners has sent me to you oh people, you guys disbelieved in me all of you was only a worker who said you told the truth and he believed in me. Well, why are Sani BNF see here why Maliki and he supported me himself and with his wealth.
Then he said for hell and Tom tariku Lisa heavy are you going to leave my friend alone? Are you going to leave him for me alone? Don't Don't ever upset Abubakar all the Allahu Allah and you know who the person who said actually these things too. He said to him, what will they allow?
He was saying because there was some kind of friction between Abu Bakr and Omar Abdullah and when they had that they had an argument the prophets of salaam spoke to the companions with these words he said leave a worker alone there's no one who supported me was who had my back luck will buckle the Allah Who and this is why he later on ama will probably allow himself he says yeah late any shout out shout out for you just maybe I was a wish because some people ask them who's about to you or Abu Bakr. He said I wish I was just a hair in the body of Abu Bakr.
I wish I was just one hair in the body of Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu.
And so this shows the value of our burqa. May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him. So even without it we said one of the was one of the early Muslims and this shows as well.
The Prophet SAW Selim as he was conveying the message and he was speaking to people he was speaking only one to one, one to one who was approaching people some of the early Muslims was of man want to have fun of the Allahu Ana of man and often will be alone. I know. The process of them kept it secret we said and how do we know he kept it secret? How do we know the prophets of salaam kept it our secret? There's a beautiful aspect about that early time. And by the way, most of these
Historical accounts indicate that it was three years, the secret data was three years. But as there's also nothing substantial there, nothing of strong substance there that says it was three years, there's actually some historians they have difference of opinion whether it was three, or even less than that secret Tao.
So there was a beautiful aspect that shows how much secrecy there was in the early Dawa. Do you know that the early Muslims, none of them knew the other?
The early Muslims, none of them knew the other.
For example, you have a border of the Allah one who came from outside of outside of Makkah, outside of Makkah Buddha. He had someone told him, there's a man in Makkah, and it wasn't known, like it's like a personal word of mouth. So it says there's a man in Morocco says he was a prophet.
So he sends his brother,
he because he lives outside of Morocco. He says, Go and find out. Who's this guy. So his brother goes, and he asks, he doesn't get to the prophesies. But he has Yeah, there is a man here, but it seems no one really knows who he was. who claims that he's a prophet.
And he goes back. So he goes to his brother who thought and he says to him,
yeah, I asked, and they told me
Yeah, like there's a man who calls people or invites people to a message. He said, What else? That's it. He says, Masha faith, and he like, that's not enough. I want to hear more. So he goes himself, travels himself to Makkah, and he stays there and doesn't find anyone. And one day, he finds he sees it, and we thought it was leaving, and we thought it was dead. And he says, Well,
you look like a stranger. He said, Yes. He says, So what do you need? How can I help you?
He says, Would you keep that secret? And he said, Yes. He said, I'm asking, I'm looking for a prophet, someone here who is a prophet in Makkah.
So I didn't know Tom says what do you know about him? He said, No, I just heard that he calls people to good things.
And I sent my brother but he didn't give me enough information.
So I live in Utah I've said keep it quiet.
I'll meet you here.
Oh, sorry before that even after it takes him home. And he offers him food and he offers him a place to stay. And then the following day he sees him and he says Emma Anna delivery be And I'ma watch delivery Baja Jetta, who, you know, our stranger, our guest has he found what he's looking for. So that said, No. Then he told him, I'm looking for a profit. So I even told him said keep it quiet.
He said, You just came to the right person. I'm on my way to him. So you follow me? Imagine the level of secrecy. I'm walking to him. You follow me? But keep a distance. And if I see someone is watching us, or someone comes across US, I will pretend that I'm fixing my shoelaces. You keep walking. We don't want we don't want to raise any suspicion.
So he says yes, fine. So he follows him. He follows him. Then he takes him to the Prophet SAW Salem. He meets the Prophet SAW Salem. And he says ilimitado What do you call people to?
To worship Allah subhanaw taala only about the delay. We had the hula Sharika when the Rasulullah saw Salaam and that I am the messenger of Allah
and good things.
See, straightaway he extended his hand to the Prophet Solomon. He said I give you by sure don't lie in our lower shed on him and Allah so Allah, why football, there's no need to steal. I know what that is. That's what my heart is searching for. We said previously, you know we have this in our hearts, we searching for Allah subhanaw taala want to know, once you see it, you recognize it.
Especially when the fitrah is so strong in the in the in the person's heart so strong and so present in their life, when it sees that sort of recognize it straightaway. So, a Buddha,
he says, Without and although this came like a few years after the Prophet SAW Selim has been Prophet right. He says I was number four in Islam.
I was number four in Islam.
Who does he mean was Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam,
his wife Khadija and Aleve number Taliban himself.
Some indicate no that he didn't count for deja, because he asked the Prophet Samuel says min mark who's with you? He said.
Ron wagged. He said a free man and a statement.
So they say it was the Prophet salallahu Salam, and Abu Bakr, and even a thought of ambulant.
So, basically is coming himself as the fourth follower of the Prophet. So he says, Mecca Stonewood, Dayton one Arambol Islam for a while I was number four in Islam. That said, there were only four Muslims with the prophets of Salaam. I was number four. But he doesn't know that if man was Muslim way before.
He doesn't know that. So there are so many Muslims, I might have been Yes, it probably was a Muslim before him. He doesn't know that. Why? That shows you the level of secrecy. early Muslims, most of them did not know each other.
They did not know each other. They didn't know, oh, he was Muslim, and I wasn't Muslim, they had no clue. And that shows you the prophets of salaam took security.
Seriously, at that time, that he would not disclose the names of the people who followed him, even to other Muslims.
That gives you a very strong impression of the level of fear that was there. And it shows you as well what kind of situation the professor was actually dealing with. You know, because you're talking about a bedwin Nomad society that was willing to fight, they were willing to shed blood and kill each other for a horse race.
For a horse race, people have a horse race, and they have a dispute, who won the race. And then they have what, they have a fight for years. And hundreds of people get killed in this because of a one thing. If there were two people, I engage each other, there could be a fight. And then it turns into a war and people kill each other because of two people, I engage each other.
So imagine what kind of society you're dealing with. And now you come to tell them everything you believe in. The whole system doesn't make sense is false. It's going to change. Imagine, so everything collapses for them. So they're obviously going to fight against this. So this is why the prophets of salaam took, say a security seriously, seriously. So he conveyed his message. As one to one. He kept low key. The early Muslims, a lot of them did not know each other did not recognize each other even sad web work, cos he says,
For so many years, I was number three in Islam. I was number three in Islam. I'm littleborough abba as well came from outside of Mecca. He says I was number four in Islam.
Many people are making the same claim. Didn't you notice?
On the low
side, don't have your cars all these hours. Number three, I was number four. But all these numbers were taken before. Have a worker you have.
You have sorry, I think you have a Smart Fan. You have so many of those early Muslims for the amount of vinyasa as well. And so these numbers are already taken. But people think that's the Muslims they know. So it seems the only ones who were probably known to the new Muslims was the prophets of salaam Abu Bakr and Ali.
They were the only names to disclose to new Muslims. Apart from this, they don't know maybe the neighbor was Muslim, and they had no clue about it. That shows, as we said, the level of secrecy, that security was very important, we couldn't jeopardize the lives of these people. And it shows as well, that we as Muslims, we as Muslims, in everything we do, we should always take matters of security seriously. Sometimes people are gonna say,
bold, and they don't calculate
consequences. And they want everyone to do the same. Islam does not require you, okay, to jeopardize your safety.
For the sake of, you know, like becoming a muslim, or showing you're a Muslim, you are a Muslim. You are, that's fine. But
up until this point, the Muslims were very small in number, so showing themselves with the mean, that could be taken out completely, that could be killed all of them.
So this is why the prophecy and I'm Kip that he took that seriously, Muslims didn't know one another. So if you have the truth, it doesn't mean necessarily
doesn't mean necessarily, but I have to make it all the time, every situation, public and manifest. Sometimes you might stay silent about something. It's true to avoid a greater evil from happening. So this is where the principle the grip
principled Islam comes, which is a little more as an Albanian Masada when my facet, always finding a balance between benefits and harms in every situation, shift in Islam to me, yeah, he says there is no ruling in Sharia. There's no ruling in Sharia. Except that behind it, there is greater benefit than harm.
And he says if at a point some footwear is given where the harm is greater than the benefit, then this is not the ruling from Allah subhanaw taala. This is a mistake.
This underlies everything in Islam. Everything was awesome. So sometimes we say word and say, oh, you know,
we say we don't want to get so much harm. And this is why we compromise on the truth. Now this is a misconception. This is a misconception.
Islam always any in any situation, Islam seeks to bring more benefit than harm, more benefit than harm. Okay. And this is up to the scholars to decide the ones who have spent their lives training in Islamic sciences and dealing with the real situations until they get to a level of internalizing the principles and the teachings of Islam, where they have a deep sense and acute sense of judgment as to where is the greater benefit, and where is the harm so we avoid the harm, and we get the greatest benefit. So the Prophet SAW said I'm at this stage and it seems obviously a revelation and instructions from Allah subhanaw taala. The problem kept low key. Most of the Muslims le Muslims
didn't know each other. The Prophet SAW Selim was giving Dawa one to one some of the early Muslims is with Mandevilla fan, Abu Bakr himself, he gives Dawa to others as well we often give that word to others and some of the new Muslims came through other new Muslims and so on and so forth.
So we have also we mentioned emerald mineral Abba
salami from Manu sulam.
He came to Makkah, so his story he says a TITO rasool Allah, he's also lymphie A Willie, my boy who will be Maccha Whoa, whoa, he needed more staffing for Ultraman. And so I came to the prophets of Salaam in Mecca at the early stages of his Dawa when he was you know, keeping everything secret. And I I asked him who are you for call Carlos. I'm Anna Nabi Yun, for call to woman Nebby suppose I'm said I'm a prophet. So I asked him what is the prophet what is in there be heard also Lhasa salaam rasool Allah A messenger from Allah.
Allah to Allah Who are salak so asked him Is it Allah Who sent you?
God Allah so Allah wa salam Nam prosom services Yes indeed. Call to Bhima or CELAC What did he send you with others was Salam be intact with Allah wa the hula Sherry kala that you worship Allah subhanaw taala without any partners were Taxila snom and you destroy these false gods these idols were to steal our ham and you connect the relations of your kin. So you can your relatives, you keep these relationships. Well tonight mama ASALA cabbie, so he said, That's a beautiful thing. What a great thing that he sent you with from Entebbe, Ocala Harada so I asked him who followed you on this. Carlos Salam Haroon wiped a free man and a slave. You only ever Buckaroo amela for Ken
Shamrock no habla say all the CADRE Tony
Islam. I found I saw myself or I was number four in Islam.
I was he only knew the prophesy Salam, Abu Bakr Bilal and himself. She said I was a quarter of Islam, quarter of the Muslims or the Muslim population. I was 25% so but we know there were many Muslims but he didn't know about them. But as well shows the level of secrecy so we don't know exactly how long really there's no any solid narration as to how long the secret Dawa was some say three some say actually less.
The prophets of salaam received the revelation from Allah subhanaw taala and solid tissue Allah when the Rashi article a Columbia in and warn your tribe that is closest to you.
Now secrecy is gone. That's a command from Allah subhanaw taala. So it shows as well. Okay shows that each stage, each stage in the Dawa. It has new requirements. It takes different procedures, different measures. How can we handle the situation that shows us well, we have to be connected to reality. We have
have to be connected to reality. So you can read the situation. And you can make a good assessment and move on. Because these times on at any subsequent time, there's no revelation, the Prophet Musa, we receive guidance from Allah. And he also used to make his own judgment. And then his judgment is either confirmed or changed by Allah subhanaw taala. So these times, we don't have a revelation coming to any of us. So what we have we have the Quran and the Sunnah, and based on understanding them, and based on a good assessment of our surroundings, our situations in any personal, you know, global, whatever, you have a good assessment, and then you make a decision based on this.
So there is no one strategy at all times. No one strategy at all times, we have to be adaptive. So the Prophet SAW Salem receives
this verse, and this means now you have to speak publicly. And also, you know, before just saying, mentioning exactly what happened, we really need to put this in context. So imagine the problem for Sophos for some years, has been keeping this data secret, because he's aware of the consequences. This is a very risky business. You're dealing with people who said closed minded, narrow minded people, very aggressive, who have resources. And so not only this, you're going against a full society, a consensus amongst society.
And you challenging not just one practice, or one trend in that society, you're challenging their whole way of life. Specifically, the religious grounding of that the religious foundation of this, which is the worship, the religious aspect of it, and we said everything in Metka revolved around this religious aspect because Mecca was one of probably the richest city in the Arabian Peninsula. How did they reach that state? There were seen the best among the Arabs, because they were the custodians of Aqaba. They were the richest how, why? Because all the business came to McCann pilgrimage.
All the business came to Mecca. And people would buy things from Mecca until today people buy things from IKEA. Like they think oh, it's there's more blessings in this. I bought it from Maccha. But if you just flip it you're gonna read made in China
is the same. So the value bought it from Ikea doesn't give it any blessings, by the way. Doesn't bless it, okay?
So you buy some cheap quality things, there's not going to be the quality is not going to change because you bought it from a junkyard or from any market and Makino doesn't, it's the same. So people used to they, but Allah subhanaw taala blesses Allah, Allah blesses these places. Allah Subhan Allah blesses, so business and trade there is blessed.
And Allah Subhan, Allah says,
he mentioned in the Quran Surah Baqarah,
that there is no harm on you seeking worldly benefit during the days of hedge. Okay, there's no harm that you do business, you do trade that you seek benefit from your visit to Macau. So, everyone, the Arabian Peninsula used to come to make business and trade there was a lot of business seasons, and carnivals, and Mecca as well. So this made it the hub of business and finance in the Arabian Peninsula was very rich. So the Prophet Salam is, is basically now challenging the foundation of all of this. He's challenged the foundation of all of this, don't forget people, yeast used to come to these idols to worship in Mecca, and offer sacrifices in the form of money, proper money on the form
of sheep, cattle, cows, camels, etc. Livestock, and in the form of everything else people would devout worshippers would ever offer whatever they have, and the people who are in charge in Makkah, they would take this and they would use it, it was funds. So they use it for public things, sometimes, oftentimes for personal things. And as being the people of NACA, they obviously they set the terms for how business goes, who you buy, from, who you don't buy from. So they all they get all of this to their advantage. Now, you're coming to challenge all of this. It's not only religious aspects, now this whole thing is going to change. So
the Prophet SAW Salem has no hesitation when he does the process and goes to Asafa and we have to go back in time here because now you don't see us suffer really. You don't see it. It's part of the Masjid. But a sofa was more of a hill was more of a hill. And it wasn't small. It was big. So where's the raised place where everyone could see where everyone could see when you are in Makkah, so the prophets of salaam claimed to suffer. Now Safa was known to to was used for public announcements about serious matters.
So if there was a military,
emergency, some kind of emergency, someone would be sent to stand on a sofa and start calling upon the people of Makkah. Sometimes they would call all the people of mkhaya Qureshi. Sometimes he would call the smaller clans or families within, within Makkah the prophets of Salaam. Now it's a warning. Wonder I see article a Colombian. He goes, climbs on a sofa,
and the prophets of Salaam, there are many intuitions about what the Prophet salallahu Salam says. So for example, when narration says he says yeah, Benny Abdi manuf in Nina the year in a mammoth holy war my fellow Catholic theologian, I do fun Palaka your boo Allah Who for her she needs to be Oh, for her to Vyasa Baja he says been abdomen if one of the cons of Quraysh he says the example of you and me is like someone who saw the enemy marching towards his hometown. So he rushes out of fear that the enemy reaches before him. And he goes and he says Yassa Hi So by means What a morning what? Basically what an ugly morning like you guys there's an enemy attacking, attacking Makkah. So he
says I am warning you. Then he says yeah, but he can immediately he unto unforce a commoner not all children of Cardinal Are you save yourselves from the hellfire? Yeah Benny Abdi Marva started calling the different clans you have any more WhatsApp niqab, fossa Coleman and now yeah bunny Abdi shims and cradle Anfisa come in and now we have an abdomen F and
the children of
of per se these are the full tree for children of beside that form the Falklands in Makkah, you have any abdomen as Uncle you and Fusa come in an area Bani Hashim until on Prusa coming in now, yeah filed Lima and BDNF Sikkema now for in Neela Emily Kula comin Allah He and the regular Anila Cumbre Haman. So it will be Luca BB Natalie, ob Valeria.
The prophesized lamb says save yourselves from the Hellfire equals upon each one of them. Then he says Fatima. Fatima was a little daughter that time probably you're talking about maybe five years old, six years old. He says I cannot save you from the Hellfire I myself cannot save him from the hellfire. I have nothing to offer you except that I will be good to you. I will connect my relations to you. And he says yeah, I'm not shut up ghoulish or people of Quraysh is started we'll be starting on Fusa Kamala oguni uncommon Allah He che Save yourselves. I cannot avail you from Allah cannot protect you from Allah. Yeah, Benny abdomen F la Oconee uncommon Alicia opening abdomen f this great
All his children. I cannot help you. Yeah, Bess ibis, one of the closest friends of the prophets, Allah, his uncle and his closest friend. Loving the uncommon Allah he she cannot help you. When it comes to Allah subhanaw taala. Yeah, Sophie Yeah, I met her. I saw Sophia, the aunt of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This is STOVL Abbas, who is the mother of Sophia, the mother of who
is away from home.
I cannot save you from Allah subhanaw taala. Then he says, Yeah, Fatima. And this was such a big surprise because the prophets of salaam was an average man in Makkah, respected known for his honesty. Everyone looks up towards him. And but he wasn't known, the person wasn't known to have to have been active in any public arena. Like he did not wasn't a social activist who had campaigns and be visible and all of these social gatherings or political gatherings. The problem was just a decent man in Mecca respected by all, that's all. Now he's making an announcement and it's such a big claim. He's saying save yourself from the hellfire. And I'm just the messenger of Allah subhanaw
taala cannot do anything to help you.
So the Prophet started calling upon
all of these clans. Now imagine what would I want to create a similarity imagine here at Abu Hurayrah This is one of the average brothers that we know one of the other brothers who usually comes to the masjid. He comes down up, brothers, I have a warning to you. You have to be careful. This is a serious matter and so on. And you've never seen this brother speak in public. This brother usually quiet and the prayer just finished and he just the masjid is full and he's calling upon people and he's making it making he's making big claims. How would you react?
How would you react? A very awkward situation. Very awkward situation. But Allah subhanaw taala command the problem to do this because it was needed. It was needed.
So the prophets of Allah is one of the generations he basically he says to them
because he reminds him reminds he now establishes rapport with them. He says for example, he gets on a sofa, he when he calls he says yes ha ha What a morning. So people come around him something serious. Mohammed is making a warning. It must be something serious now, because that's not something he usually does. So he says,
so they came then he the President says about a two minute walk about to come in. Hi Ilan, if he had algebra, or quantum theory, he says to them, What if I tell you there is an army behind this mountain that is ready to attack Mecca? Would you believe me that you would they said Magill Ragna Malaika. Caliban, we know that you don't lie. We never caught you lying. You're not a person who lies. So the Prophet was Adam says on the spot. He says for in Nina the urine lecan beignet. They either been shaded, I am a water from Allah to you about a severe punishment from Allah subhanaw taala.
So he basically says, I'm a messenger from Allah worshipping alone. All of these idols that you're worshipping are false.
I could personally imagine there was a moment of silence.
Some people might thought what happened to Mohamed, what's going on?
Is just very unexpected. Everything that's happening, very unexpected, except for some one person who broke the silence. And it was the uncle of the prophets, Allah Azza. Abu Lahab. Straight away he speaks in a shaming, ridiculing condescending manner, disrespectful manner. Then he says Ben Lek.
Ali Harada jamatkhana.
Basically, like, it's a very short statement. But it's like it's so full of contempt.
And there's like, he doesn't have an argument with the Prophet SAW Salem. He just tells him off. That's it. But he depletes the situation. There's a lot of excitement, a lot of anticipation. He depleted. He basically he swears that the Prophet saw some terrible luck. It's like swearing is cussing. It's a cussing word.
This is why you brought us here.
It's nonsense. And that situation is over.
He depleted the whole situation. That could have been a discussion that could have been Christians, or what exactly are you talking about? Explain to us. He preemptively reported the whole thing.
So he he just said the statements, just two statements, two simple sentences. It's over. It's of
Subhan Allah. And it shows that some people and Ebola was very influential in Makkah, was one of the main people in Makkah. He was actually one of the most handsome people in MCC, you know, so being good looking. That means nothing. When it comes to faith. He was probably the handsomest or the most handsome person in Mecca. And he was very light skin. His cheeks were red, reddish kind of color. And his face was bright. And he was one of the good looking people in Mecca. Yet. He was cross eyed.
He was cross eyed.
So this is why Allah subhanaw taala sent down the sorites l method. But here the abelia have been watered because he said there are some Benedek right? So the prophets of Salaam, Allah Subhan Allah says, Tibet, may the hand of Ebola be destroyed. Basically, whatever he's brought upon himself hand also means whatever you do, so all his works are destroyed are going in vain to butcher the Ebola have been what a man and woman who were Marcus up his wealth will never benefit him his resources, his power is not going to benefit him because of what he did. So Abu Bakr, or sorry, Abu Lahab, he made the first instance of resistance.
And he set a very negative tone about the message of the Prophet SAW Salem right from the beginning, because you can imagine the people of Makkah, were in a state of shock. They weren't for or against. They were still neutral.
They were still neutral. And this is why the way where leadership comes in. This is why sometimes some forms of leadership, or actually they take place when someone speaks first, when someone's so people are in a state of shock, disbelief. They don't know what to do. They don't know how to respond, believe or disbelief at that moment. When Abu Lahab spoke and he knew what he was doing. When he spoke. He took people's opinions and a negative side straight away into disbelief, especially him being who he was in Makkah
Had he remained silent things would have been different, by the way, had he remained silent, things would have been different because no one spoke anything. And these are, these are moments where they have a name for them. These are moments of these are turning points, when people are open to any interpretation, people don't have an opinion have not things have taken them by surprise, it took them on the blind side, people don't know what to do how to how to process this. So there's still neutral, if a good word comes in, people will just take it, if a negative word comes in, people would take it. These are very critical moments in leadership, very critical moments in leadership in
a dispute, you could have two people or two groups being in a dispute. Or you could have someone who's really in trouble, something bad happened to them, really. And you could actually simply say, or things will be alright, take it easy, you could actually change the perspective of the people involved straight away just by saying these words and being calm yourself. Or you could frantically respond to this, and freak out and catch up to the same kind of vibe, which is very anxious. And and there's so much fear and confusion, you could catch up to this. And you say, Oh, that's a really serious situation. You have taken the whole situation to that side as well. So there are critical
moments where people are open to whoever is going to define the situation.
I wouldn't have defined the situation in a very negative way he just told and he didn't even have an argument with the Prophet SAW Selim. He didn't have a conversation. He just told him off. And he created what you can call a closure on the situation. The prophets of salaam wanted people to think. And he used the element of shock there. There's an element of shock. No one expects Mohamed Salah Salem to do something like this, to say something like this. And he straight away give him the message without any introductions. That's what that's what it's all about. That's what the message is all about. And you guys know me
yet. So that's actually a very powerful way to convey the message.
Abu Lahab came and it depleted the whole thing he put a closure on that on the situation. And he made it sound insignificant and unworthy. So he said to Ben luckily Allah jamatkhana And who is he is the uncle of the prophecies and one of the closest people to one by the way, Abu Abu Lahab.
When the Prophet SAW Saddam was born, of will have loved him so much.
He loved him so much, even the the slave girl who gave the news to Ebola hub. When the Prophet son was born.
She came to Ebola and she said, the wife of your late brother Abdullah, she gave birth to a baby boy. He was so happy that he said you are free. He gave her freedom. He was so happy about the Prophet. Muhammad says I'm being born yet SubhanAllah. That's how he responds.
Now what situation is over, depleted?
But everyone knows Muhammad now is calling people to the worship of Allah. There is a message now. Now that's not the only thing the Prophet SAW. Selim also gave a special invitation to mineral Abdulmutallab. This is not very known. But it's a very important aspect of his Dawa. After this incident the Prophet SAW Salem calls Ben who Abdulmutallab
the children have Abdulmalik his uncle.
He called all of them. He invited them to
a meal. So he prepared a lot of food for them.
basically the narration share says because there are some important details here. The Kajima Rasulullah sallallahu bene Abdul Muttalib the pro Salim called the children of the family of Abdul Muttalib all his children, many of them and their children.
Fee him Ron among them are some young men who Lumia Kolja each one of them is able to eat a small sheet by himself.
Some of these strong warriors fighters, but one of them is able to eat a full sheet by himself.
Where Shinobu will fork and they could drinks a huge jar of water or drink
for Sun Allahu Denman Tom, he just actually afford them. Would Montana he offered them food that is as much as to how to handle a handful.
That's it. That's the food to handful of, of food, which was made of wheat and a little bit of meat on top of it. And he offered it to probably you're talking about at least
Maybe 15 to 20 Men, middle age, and maybe older ones and younger ones. And he's offering them this. And so they ate to their fill for a girl who had a shabby, who were both the bomb will come and go and the food remained as it is.
So they ate from that small platter of food and all of them, and it remained the same size, the same amounts.
Well, but the Athan will come out who what can no let me do my says if no one touched it, through muda beyond marine fishery, Bo Hatao, then the province alum called, he brought a small cup, a small cup of water, and he gave it to each one of them and they drank from it, all of them one after the other, and the water was to remain remains the same in the cup.
Then the Prophet SAW Selim says, Yeah, Benny Abdulmutallab enable Tula calm casa. What a nasty Byham obiano Abdulmutallab You are my closest family. So I have a special warning towards you, I have to give you the special warning. You're the closest to me.
And to people in general to humanity in general. And you have seen the sign in front of your eyes. For a Eukanuba you only and your corner it was a heavy, so who's going to give me the bait to be my brother in this faith. And my companion in this in this faith?
I don't even know without him the rates the generation that even Abdullah says for coming to LA he will come to us all calm. Are you going to be Taalib stands up and he says I stood up and I was the youngest. But he's already Muslim. So I
the Prophet of Islam says to me sit down. Wait,
the person wants the older ones. He wants the older ones. Because that's also, you know, when if one of the older ones agrees or accepts this message, the others are going to follow. But if it's the youngest, we're very difficult for the older ones to follow a younger one. Okay, so that's also a proper understanding of the situation. So the problem is I told him sit down
who is going to be my friend and my companion and my brother in this faith?
No one stands at a you know, thought it stands and extends his hand. The problem says Sit down. Third time he offers them. No one stands up. Can you imagine disappointment just had a big disappointment in public. Now with his closest cousins, the house that he was brought up in.
I've done Moto, they also have the Moto, none of them. Then aluminum club, extends his hand stands up, extends his hand the prophesy Salam takes his hand. And he gives him the bear. And that's it.
And that's it. The biggest day in publicizing the Dawa, spreading it to the people and a lot of disappointment. Yet the Prophet SAW Salem
has no issues he still carries on with he's going to carry on with his data. But imagine it you have not retired this young boy. He came first before all of these young men and older ones within the family of Abdulmutallab, they saw this sign in front of their own eyes. But what is holding people back?
What is holding people back?
Fear, fear, how am I going to go against the norms? Are all these peoples wrong? And you are right.
Say the things that we say today, right?
And so there is something in humans. In US we humans, we like to follow the majority.
There is it's not it's a very subtle fear. It's a very subtle fear, to break from the majority to break from majority. And this is why in Islam, this has been treated very carefully. It's been treated very carefully. So in Islam, we have a recognition of what we call a lot of the norms of the people, the norms of the people. So that is one of the main our one of the main principles. In fact, in the Islamic jurisprudence and all of a ladder were haccombe norms, social norms, and the norms among a society have the upper hand, they have authority.
They have authority. So the scholars explain the various conditions unless they go against Islam.
Unless the norms go against Islam, but when the norms do not go against Islam they have they take a preference in Islam, and only this. Sometimes they take an obligation. So this is why you go against the norms. If they are not against Islam, that's inappropriate. This is why something about Imam Muhammad for example, Imam Muhammad, one of the scholars of Hadith.
Remember, he was
one of the scholars of Hadith. He was from Medina.
And he heard so much about him and then he met him a couple of times and he was admired him or her but he was a senior to Imam Muhammad. When he died, people at that time had a tradition
that when I die, my personal clothes, I'd send them to the person I admire the most
as a gift, so this is put this in the will. So he put in his will all my clothes go to Imam Muhammad as a gift as a sign of respect, love and recognition. So when Imam Muhammad receives that
he looks at the clothes
he keeps one of them he says that's gonna be like a memoir, a reminder for me about this, che one of my shares, then he gives the rest of them to poorer people to other people. So he was asked about this, he says, In Heather Mohali phone, Lima Allah He theorbo Ali Bella Dena Fela, Alba su he says, Imam Muhammad was in Baghdad. He says this type of design this cut this third cut is not what we have is not what we have here in Baghdad.
So it's inappropriate for me to wear it. So he gives it out in charity.
He gives it out in charity is why the mama Tabata he says Latin burry Maha lava to our IDI nurse Elavil haram. He says it's inappropriate to go against the norms of people, until or unless these people these norms go against Islam, against Sharia. That's when we you're supposed to change them. Apart from this, it's inappropriate to go against the norms. Why? Because Islam knows, Allah design us in a way where we blend in, we fit in, it's hard for someone to live within a group and be completely different from them. Why?
Because Allah subhanaw taala, you have an ability to be different from people.
But you can't do this with everything. So Allah keeps this to the things where the norms are wrong, where the norms are against Islam. So detached from these, detached from these other things don't have to go against the norms of the people. So here, we find that by no Abdulmutallab, why didn't they? Although they saw the the miracle of the prophets, awesome. This is why by the way, one of the miracles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this hadith is reported by the man Muhammad and his Muslim and it's, it's hasn't this not as hasn't? So? Why didn't the children of Abdul Matata born in they after seeing the sign and the miracle? Why didn't they believe
it's hard to go against the norms of society. It's hard. But it is these issues that you have to go against society, if it's wrong. It's these issues that you have to decide on yourself and let no one decide that no one decide.
But Subhanallah people, and this one, this is studied in social sciences, they call it social evidence. They call it social influence. It's hard for people to break from social norms, and from ideas. And you can see this in almost everything. An idea could be very,
you know, completely wrong, and doesn't make any sense and appalling. Yet, if it starts to find place in society, and then it starts to become more popular, once it becomes popular, more popular and becomes mainstream.
By the way, it becomes very easy to accept it and not even see the criticism against it.
And this is a very subtle process. This is a very subtle process. Humans easily fall for whatever is socially accepted. Whatever is accepted by majority people, people don't even see what's wrong with it. People don't see what's wrong with it, people just fall for it unconsciously. And their mind will start making justifications even for it. That's how we humans are. And this is why Islam calls upon us to focus on the matters of belief and faith that you have to take these matters into your own hands. You can't just believe like any society, you can't like believe like anyone else. You can't let people decide how your faith goes, what you believe in. These are things you have to
settle between you and Allah subhanaw taala based on the revelation based on the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet of Islam, it's not like okay, I inherited this from my parents. That's how my parents were. You can't do this because once you grow, grow, if you grow up in within a belief system, you're not going to see what's wrong with it.
Most people want See, most people want so this is why you have to find out for yourself. You have to make your journey even if you're born into a Muslim family. You have to make your journey to Allah read the Quran. Read the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem find out what Allah says about himself in the Quran when Allah says about the articles of faith. The Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim fight about the prophets of Salaam, fun about what's halal and what's haram you grew up in
A society that says for example, free mixing is halal.
Like there are some Muslim societies where there's a lot of free mixing, there's a lot, and women and men get together and they party together. And sometimes they even do religious festivals together. And there's so much mixing, like, I can speak with someone else's wife, and this wife speaks without my man, and no normal. I've seen this with my own eyes. If you grew up in this inner circle like this, you think Islam is like this. This is where you when you grow up in a society, you have to go back to the revelation, you go back to the revelation, you go back to the life of the prophet and and the life of the companions, the rulings, the scholars have made clear, you know,
this is inappropriate. This is against the teachings of Islam.
So now you start learning. So there are so
societies is a very powerful influence tool, there's a lot of influence. This is why the media is very influential. This is why people's norms, trends are very influential. And you can look at any law, you know, clothing changes, almost now, almost every five years, you get a completely new,
you know, direction and fashion, and how clothes are designed. Now, if you wear clothes from 10 years ago, everyone is going to look like you're weird. You look really different. Like this doesn't match, there's something off with this kind of clothing from 10 years back from 10 years back. It's people unconsciously slide into these new trends. You don't realize even things are changing. You don't realize a lot of these are subtle,
like unconscious, you don't even feel them. So so this is why the the children have been Abdulmutallab, you know, we're part of the system we're part of this will what's gonna happen if we change that, and probably they probably questioned even a lot of the prophets of Salaam is it worth like really siding with him?
Why because there's a lot of calculations in your mind about this is our tradition. This is our social status is our financial status. We part of this tribe, what are we going to do? This doesn't make sense based on what we understand or what we were brought up with and so on and so forth. There's so many issues there. Yet the prophets of salaam still conveys the message.
Now they start asking the prophesy send them some of them asking the proper Salam you calling to Allah. Is it different than our Allah?
Is it different than other than our Allah? Because they know Allah.
Like if you're calling us to Allah, we know Allah, so who is your Lord? So when they asked the Prophet SAW Salem, Allah Subhan Allah revealed to him
when they asked him sifl in Arabic or describe your Lord to us, Allah Samantha has entered the prophets of salaam Surat, Samad
Paul who Allah who had Allahu Samad. Let me Elliot when a mule at ALA Miko loco for Wanda had that Allah.
Allah is one he's the one and only he's a summit a summit that means he's self sufficient.
And all the creation turns in need or is in need of Him stands in need of Him. He stands in need of no one limb yet it will come you will never be gets nor is he begotten. There is no one like him. No one close to him, no rival to him. He's unique. No one is associated with him, like these idols that you guys worship.
He's unique in His worship, you have to worship Him alone.
So the thing is, at this moment, some of the new Muslims names became circulated. So they know that Mohamed Salah Salem is a Muslim, obviously, he's going to the message, Abu Bakr. Ali is a Muslim, but he's still a young man, and he's one who's going to deal with him. Abu Bakr is from Bhanu. Tamim, one of the factions of Kurdish who's going to deal with him No, he has a lot of family to support him. He's one of the most respected people in Mecca as well. No one is gonna you know, mess with Abu Bakr. But you have for example, what some of the early Muslims were so high aroma he was a complete stranger. So I baru me, I'm Martin Yassa, one of the poor poor families in Makkah. I'm
gonna be asked his father, Yasser, and his mother Sumaiya
these people are taking
now you guys are creating conspiracy. This jeopardizes social cohesion, and our society. This is a security threat. Right? This is revolution.
So they start snatching these people, making them
So actually, at this stage, some minor harm was actually even inflicted on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself, but nothing serious, as I said, usually would happen through women, women and sometimes
Names secretly by some younger boys. Why because the men of Makkah could not openly fight with the Prophet SAW Selim because by no Abdulmutallab was gonna are gonna do,
are going to defend him.
Because this is still this is our honor. He's our man. You touch him, they will be a war. Because that's our dignity. So they haven't given up on the prophesy. Salam, as a member of our family, yes, we don't believe in your message. We're not going to follow you. But no, you guys touch him. That's our dignity and our honor and our status in Mecca. So you cannot deal with this. So Alhamdulillah that worked for the for in favor of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, the woman who really had the prophets of salaam the worst was the wife of Abu Lahab so we'll have himself what he did wasn't enough and he kept doing more and more we'll come to talk about this. His wife was very bad to the
professors and very abusive verbally abusive when she saw the Prophet SAW Salem. Like you know, sometimes there are people very especially in school when there is a bully and they really have you in their mind. Like walking down the street you see them all in the hallway you see them or not, I'm gonna change my way right? Like you don't want to this woman was a proper bully. She would chase the Prophet Solomon Imagine you're a man you can't fight back against a woman.
She was very abusive to the Prophet SAW Salem. very abusive, to the point that one day. The problem was after the revelation of sorts and method to batida abelia had been WhatsApp Magna and Nomad who were maca sub, say Aslan out on that level, he shall taste a fire or blazing fire that has a scorching bliss. One minute or two who hanged man at a laptop and his wife who was carrying the woods because she will bring the woods and the branches and throw them in the door on the doorstep of the prophets of Salaam. So as he was leaving early or late from his house, he would stumble on those and get hurt, thorns and and wood and and so on, and stones and so on and so forth. When when
I told her my daughter had PGD, her had balloon method, around her neck will be a rope made from fire on the day of judgments. So when she heard about this, and one of her accusations against the Prophet son that he was a poet.
The prophesying was one day with Abu Bakr it's resting in the shade of gab. So the Prophet SAW Selim says to overcome, here she comes. Her name was Omar Jamil, the mother of the beautiful, handsome so
because it says here she comes. She's actually looking for me, but Allah will protect me from her she will not see me. She will not see me. So the Prophet SAW Selim recited some Quran
he recited from why the character Khurana Jana Bina Kobina Lilina Longino Nabila Hirata hijab mistura Solothurn Caf so she comes the prophets of salaam Sisto Bukhari says called an abuse of workers he said Kalia rasool Allah but Allah Bellet Oba says I'm gonna do Allah here she comes she's she's around she's around the corner when a half one tilaka I'm afraid she will see you because he knows if she sees the problem she's gonna come on heap abuse on him.
The prophecy says God and the resource I'm in the Helen Tara Annie Wakata Quran and factor so maybe he can call with Cara, Dr. Khurana gehele, Nabina, Kobina, Latina, diamino, Nebula, Filati, hijab and mistura so the prophets of salaam said she's not gonna see me. Then he recited Quran, this verse that we just mentioned, for what Africa I'd be back when she stood by Abu Bakr Willem Talal rasool Allah Salam she didn't see the Prophet sorcerer for Katya Ababa in new bill to Anessa Heba her journey. I was told that your friend made some poetry insulting me
she's talking about sort of the the method
for kala Baba cannula what Bill cada Ola behind the debate Maha Jackie. He said No, by the lord of this house Kabah he did not make any poetry against you insulting you, because that's these are the words of Allah.
farewell letter here to all animate coalition need a minute to say Uriah, then she turned away and she said people always know that I am the daughter of the master of the best man in Makkah. So these are things the Prophet SAW Salem had to deal with. So there was a number of early Muslims who became names became known. And these people were taken by the people of Quraysh. And they were actually tortured. So Inshallah, next time we'll mention their names and we will see what kind of torture they had to go through. And what are the predicaments that the early Muslims had to go through, to see the sacrifice of
The early Muslims for the sake of just remaining upon the truth, just of just for the sake of remaining upon the truth today Allah made it easy for us. law made it easy for us. So we should be appreciative of the conditions that we live in. So inshallah next time
next week in sha Allah we will start with the stories of these early Muslims and how they were persecuted until then
Desikan lohagad and also Allah who said no malice either Mohammed Ali or sabe Hilson.
