Understanding I want us to feel Hunan will do bIllahi min shallowly and phocoena will say to Marlena, me you had to Hila Hoefler. mobila whoami yo Bluefin I had the ELA or shadow Allah. Allahu Allah share, you cannot wash. I don't know Muhammad Abdul Rasulullah sallallahu had he early he was an amateur Sleeman Kafeel and my bad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. We said he arrives in the village of Benny and little elf, which is known as Uber. As Uber arrives there, and when he said, he camps there, only stays there for 14 days, for 14 days before entering Medina and we talked about some of the possible wisdoms behind this. So during this time, we mentioned that a few
incidents that happened, one of them was a person seemed to be a slave.
From Persian origins, he came and he offered the Prophet SAW Islam as he was with his companions, he offered him something, some food, and he said, This is for sadaqa is a charity. So the prophets also took that and he handed it over to his companions to consume it, he didn't touch it.
So the man said to himself, had he wider, this is one and then he leaves. And we said, we're going to come back to his story. So the Prophet SAW Selim, after spending 14 days in Oba and not moving to Medina Street. Now, the prophet is Salam feels the time was right to enter Medina. So apparently, the problem during this time started the situation understood the dynamics of Medina, who was there, who was involved, what are the expectations, and so on and so forth. And that's part of the wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, this actually blends in beautifully with the prophetic instructions. The Prophet SAW, Selim says,
hold on to riff. riff is usually translated as kindness, but it's much more riff is
an easygoing approach to things. So when you approach something,
You approach it with kindness, with patience with wisdom.
It could be RIF, also in Arabic means taking a gradual, incremental approach to things rather than jumping right into something. No, you test the waters first.
So that's part of a riff. This is part of a riff,
part of it. So the Prophet saw someone was acting upon this, and this is something we should actually notice as we as we study the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam that the Prophet SAW Selim, whatever he said he did.
Whatever he said, said he did so he was advising people to have rift he himself, practice that in all his efforts. So he started salah, waited for 14 days to figure out Medina before he enters into Medina. Now it was time for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to enter Medina. So what does he do? He also the Prophet seven figures out something, he figures out something the Prophet Solomon wants to make the day he enters Medina memorable.
He also wants to demonstrate since he understood now the power balance in Medina, who are the main players in Medina, and the level of their power the prophets of salaam utilizes a beautiful tool. He wants his day, his the day he enters Medina to be a memorable day, something special something people would remember. And through that the prophets or something created what we call symbolism. symbolism. The person wanted to demonstrate to everyone not in speech, but in real demonstration, how much support he has in Medina. So anyone who thinks Okay, Mohammed is just someone who's coming to move into Medina salatu salam, and we can do whatever we want, or we can probably plan against
him or conspire against him, they would actually think 1000 times before they do anything dodgy.
So the President wants to demonstrate the power his power his popularity is support in Medina. So everyone could see without bragging about it. Without speaking about a we have such and such support, we have this number of followers know you guys will see for your eyes.
So here the action is much powerful than words here. So the Prophet SAW Selim, he says I will see you to Elan Ansari.
The processes sent to the unsought give them notify the unsolved that I want to enter Medina today.
So now the whole Medina the Muslims in Medina Arabic population now are in a state of celebrate
mission and the state of celebration. So what happens? The men of the unsolved the Muslims in Medina, they have their web their swords with them as a demonstration of power and celebration. So all of them have their swords and they have the swords, you know, in their hands naked.
Swords are naked,
just in case
and they go to the Prophet sizer limp to
Oba to create some kind of a celebration from Cuba to Medina. They would be around the prophets of Salaam, escorting him into Medina. With that kind of demonstration of power and support and celebration and happiness. Many of the unsolved what they did on that day, they slaughtered camels, and they cooked and they created feasts and meals and they send them out to people, they invited people. So as I said, it was like a day was like a huge celebration.
And so the Prophet SAW Salem, the unsought come to him and they say, rasool Allah Medina is ready to receive you now.
So he walks along them they escort him to Medina, huge numbers of people. One of narrations indicates that 500 men from the unser skirted the came from Medina to escort the prophets and salam from Oba and to Medina. So Medina was in a state of celebration, the prophets of salaam enters Medina, what happens?
All the streets are filled with people greeting him on the right on the left reading the Prophet sallallahu sallam, women are on top on top of the houses, they want to see. And that's how we're working on the law and who says I walked with the Prophet Salam into Medina. And he says the streets were full with people welcoming the Prophet salallahu Salam, and women he uses a word and by the way, this is something they're some of the Arabic language had words from Habesha from Abyssinia
from Abyssinia at the time. So you find Abu Bakr Al Delano since he was a frequent traveler.
He sometimes used words that were non Arabic. So he said, We cannot in Nisa or Anna G and women were on on top of the houses and energy. So the the scholars of Hadith they say this is not even an Arabic word. It's a word from Abyssinia from the language of people of Abyssinia at the time.
So they in turn he says women are on top of the houses and children are celebrating and there were little girls from the unsavoury they were singing. They were singing instead of ration that was saying no banana tone. Oh no. No Java in Benin jar Yeah, habita Mohammed almond jar were little girls from banana jar, one of the clans within unsavoury
and we are so happy about Mohamed salaam, being our neighbor. Now he is going to live among us.
One of the young, unsolved and nomadic who later on would become the servant personal servant of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says I was running around with the kids around Medina trying to see the prophets of Allah and who sent them. And we tried to get a peek from among the people because people crowded around the Prophet SAW Salem. Were trying to peek around to see the Prophet salallahu Salam running around and celebrating and the kids were saying Jah Mohammad Rasool Allah kids were running in the street and they say, Mohammed has come the Prophet SAW Selim has come on they happy about it, they're just running around in the streets. So Allah subhanaw Malik he says
such a beautiful day in Medina he so he says in his head in narration, he says Lim the halal rasool Allah He SallAllahu Sallam Medina Allah I mean how could you say the day the prophets of salaam entered Medina it lit up everything in Medina lit up.
Then he remembers the day the Prophet salon passed away and he says Philomath Avila minha Kulu shade, but when the prophets of salaam passed away, everything in Medina went dark.
It lost the light.
So the prophets of Allah when he was sending them into Medina with Abu Bakr, and people are celebrating and happy. Even one of the iterations indicates canon,
bash, and bash some of the reasons indicate these are the Muslims who immigrated to be Senia some of them came from UN Habitat, some of them not all of them came and their inhibition. They learned some kind of how to play around with spears and swords and demonstration, like a full clock kind of thing. A tradition so they learned that so they practiced it in Medina, in celebration of the Prophet of the prophets arrival to Medina, so was such a happy such a happy day and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam managed you to send a clear message to all the powers all the major players in Medina, who were the major players
We have, for example, the Jewish tribes of Arabia, who lived in Medina, these were people who dominated the financial state or the market, business and so on and so forth. You have the non Muslims among the Arabs of the of Medina, from an ounce and 100, you have still a lot of non Muslims. The leader among them was Abdullah, ignore obey ignore saloon, who was supposed to be appointed as sort of the king of Medina, around that time.
So these were major players. Number two, the news would spread to Metka. And other tribes around in the Arabian Peninsula, that Mohammed has got a strong mold. Now in Medina, he's got a lot of support. It's not like when he was in Mecca, individuals, you know, trying to just run, run for like, run for their lives. No, now it's people who can defend themselves these are huge numbers. So, it was such a beautiful power, powerful celebration. And today, this is called as I said,
symbolism, by the way, the actions of a leader
symbolic power, symbolic power, when a leader pays attention to automatically to the followers or subordinates or employees, whatever the attention or the importance that a leader places his attention on anything, then automatically people assume that's the important thing. So this is how followers usually understand actions. When you spend a lot of time with something you send a clear message. This is very important for me, this is a huge investment for me, you don't have to say it, people figure it out. So the Prophet Solomon here was sending a very clear and strong message that don't mess with Muslims. And this is very important, as a growing nation, as a growing nation,
because yes, the Muslims were growing in number but they were not strong enough now to defend themselves against a strong enemy if they were to be attacked. So sometimes you need to send a strong message, sometimes even show yourself to be much stronger than you really are, in order to scare people away. So they actually think twice before they come to you before they think of attacking you or conspiring against you.
So the Prophet SAW salamis, he said into his Medina, day of celebration, the Muslims are happy. And as a reminder, he says as the prophet I'm in Abu Bakr entering Medina people are random. The women are on top of the houses and they are asking one another are you home who which one is the prophet? Is it this guy with that guy, they don't know it's Abu Bakr working with the owner was with him. So Medina seemed to be that was such a beautiful day in Medina and if all the Muslims enjoyed it
then the kids were actually as the problem was walking towards the middle of Medina kids were greeting the prophets as another thing. Yeah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, they were trying to capture his attention just O Messenger of Allah or Muhammad, they just want them to see them.
Then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is writing his
his camel, it stops in one place.
Anyone saw the movie? The message? reseller? Anyone saw that? Who saw that? Put your hands up?
You guys are the older generation was likely. Okay? What you saw an episode about that? Forget it. It's not necessarily true. Okay. It's not necessarily true.
There was the scriptwriter who put some stuff together. But he the narrations indicate that the
camel of the prophets of salaam arrives at one spot than the Prophet, then it stops. When it stops. The prop salon realizes okay, it's supposed to stop here. And he says au boo you at nine o'clock now and the prophets of salaam was leaving Oba he was asked Where are you going to stay in Medina? What are you going to stay? Now this shows is well the wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because in Medina you have two main tribes out and they'll have knowledge. And because the roads were bigger in number and elsewhere, smaller in number. And
among both of them there were Muslims.
So which ones is the provinces that I'm going to choose?
And when it comes to the Arabs, there is this competition. There is this jealousy? Why them why not us? And the problem has to be wise and how he handles this why human beings you can't say you know that's wrong to have the sense of competition or this kind of jealousy. Whether it's stronger right it's a fact of life then you have to deal with it. There's a beautiful rule in Islam or maximum Islam it says Lisa Ullman he you and who shall uncle do medicine?
Let's say something is haram. Something is haram and someone
Because you dislike it. And because you know, It's haram, you can't just ignore it and say it's not there. So I'm not going to count it. No, if it's a fact of life, you have to deal with it. You have to deal with it. So, for example, this kind of jealousy is not praiseworthy, because it brings about a lot of dissension and friction among people. You know, why didn't the prop Salam stay with us? Why didn't he? Why don't we host host him why the other clan or the other tribe why this is quite problematic. But the prophet Islam recognizes this as a human weakness, and we have to deal with it, we have to be able to handle it with care. And this is how life goes by the way.
There is an Arab poet who has a beautiful line of poetry, he says, we're in control of equal or more immorality, Ben Lam, tell Allah the law to RTB. If you are a person, whenever someone makes a mistake, like a friend of you, or a close person makes a mistake, you're going to blame them for it and pointed out, you're not going to find anyone around you.
If you're searching for someone who's faultless, without faults without shortcomings, you're not going to find anyone, you're not going to find anyone.
And, you know, back home, there's a joke. In every country, they pick one city or one state or province where they make jokes about right. So I'm not going to state who's in my country, but that group of people, they say one of them, like he went, and he bought a huge box of banana.
so he gets this organic banana, and he thinks it's something special and super,
then, like, he stays with that box of banana for by himself in the kitchen for for a while, maybe half an hour. Anyway, his wife walks in and she finds all the banana has been peeled off and thrown in the bin. And she says, What are you throwing all the banana? He says, each time I pick one, I peel it off, it's not straight. So I thought, right. So you're gonna find search for a banana that they're straight. I mean, good luck, have you gonna find a banana straight? So
so the profits are some understand these are human beings, they're going to have this we can. So I'm gonna handle this with care. I'm going to handle this with care. So I'm going to use something that is accepted among the Arab culture among the norms of the Arabs, and it's in line with the principles of Islam without doing injustice. So the Prophet SAW Selim says, to his companions, none Zulu Allah, squarely mean Benina jar or crema Humby Dalek,
I'm gonna be guest with banana jar, banana and a jar. They are my paternal uncles, because they are already related to the prophets of Salaam. Because they are actually the paternal uncles, the matory, the maternal uncles of his father, his grandfather, is married to a woman from Medina from banana jar from Benin, and Niger. So the prophecies and says I'm related to them,
the sort of, you know, kin to me.
So the Arabs respect this.
So by this, that's the way to deal with it. So the prophecy says, I'm gonna take choose my hosts to be my relatives, no one is going to object to this, the Arabs will respect that, they would appreciate it, no problem. Now, there's no competition. There's no jealousy, there's no issues there. So this is how that we can see the prophets, I seldom handle these issues with care with attention, and intelligent sensitivity. So this is why it's important to have sensitivity, whoever you're dealing with, they're human beings, you have to figure out what the sensitivities are, you can't expect people just to, you know, match your expectations, or match your fancy ideas. No human
beings come from different backgrounds, when you understand those backgrounds, and figure them out and work round them without compromising the principles of Islam. That's how things work. That's how things work. When you say no, sometimes people, you know, say, for them, it's black and white, they know, they know something, I want to apply it everywhere. This is not nothing in life works like this. For every rule, you will find exceptions. And every rule in principle is clear and clear cut is definitive. But when you apply it in reality, there's always a few rules, you know, interacting and interfering at the same time. So you have to pay attention. There's much more dynamism in life
than what you know in theory. So don't take theory and try to apply it exactly as it is in life. Yes, you have to apply the principles, but you have to be aware of other factors as well. I hope this is clear.
So as the Prophet SAW,
the camel stops, the Prophet says Adam says, uh, you listen to the wording of the prompts and even choosing the words is, is, I would say is conscious, is purposeful. The profit zone says AAUW at Adelina a club. The profitable
As among my family problems, calling them my family whose house is the closest to this point. Now, you will answer he is there. He's from Behringer. He says Ya rasool Allah Beatty. It's my house is the closest to this point. He's so happy about this. So the prophecy turns to him and he says it had for her Yelena McLean and
he says to me, I'm sorry, go and prepare in our place for us in your house to rest and obviously he rushes and he's happy with this. Now we have to as well realize this, give some kind of background of what is happening or what was happening in Medina, prior to the prophets of salaam arriving Medina. We had an arsenal has Raj and their subclasses well, they were in a state of constant war, constant war among themselves, sometimes for silly, ridiculous reasons, petty reasons, but these wars claimed a lot of lives. And it became a matter of revenge, ego, dignity, etc. So it was like an endless series of killings and revenge years. And, and wars. So every time they would have a true so
they would have an agreement, it would it was very, like fragile, it will last for a couple of months that it would be broken easily because the deeper reasons or causes of that kind of state were not sorted out. And one of those truces was actually mainly conducted by the man called Abdullah Abdullah away. Abdullah bin obey Edna salute.
And he they agreed upon him to make him the common leader, the leader of the Arabs in Medina, so hoping that he would bring about peace, but everyone knew that this was not going to last because there was nothing special about nothing special about
it, love and obey even though he didn't bring anything new, he didn't really solve the problems. So I'd love to know where you want to salute. He sees with all the support that the province of Salem is getting all this popularity. He realizes his chances of being the leader of Medina are vanishing in front of his own eyes. So now he's consumed with anger, jealousy, disappointment, and hatred and hatred. And he has
a fair following. He has a good number of followers. He was influential. Who else was in Medina, we have the Jewish tribes of Arabia, who lived in Medina. We have been Cordova been another year and Ben onapa. These were in Medina, in the city of Medina on the outskirts of Medina.
For example, among them were
this beautiful actually, there's an interesting story about three Arabs who joined the Jewish tribes.
They are from Benny, who they famous Arab tribe, they left their tribe, the three young men, I said Hussein and fella, I said Hussein and Taliban, these are from the Arabs. Prior to the Prophet Salam coming to Medina, these three Arabs young Arabs joined by new Cordoba, one of the Jewish tribes and they intermingled with them, they lived with them, and
they became Jews. They became they follow the Jewish faith of the time.
When the Prophet SAW Selim came to Medina, obviously these three people studied the Scripture.
And they figured out what we learned in the Scripture about the last prophet, it matches Mohammed Salam. So they believed, and they relate a story. They relate a story. What made them leave their Arab tribe and join a Jewish tribe, which was very uncommon, was very uncommon.
In the past,
they said, A man came a Jewish man came from a sham from natural Syria. He came to your trip to Medina, and he settled in Morocco. His name was ignoble. Hey, Ben ignol Hey, gibbon. Seminole. Hey, Eban. Some of the companions describe him. They say, This man.
We haven't seen anyone in our lives. Who's more righteous than this man.
We haven't really said Lemna. Or Julian Lim used to live comes up coming home. We never saw in our life, someone who doesn't pray five day five daily prayers. Who's more righteous than this man? Basically, we've never seen a person who was righteous but who was not a Muslim.
He died before Islam by the way. So they said this man came and he settled in Medina.
And they said every time it was a year of drought, or there was suffering from lack of rain, people would go to ignorant Haven. And they will say to him, please makes a lot less
Call upon Allah asked him for rain. It's the scale call upon Allah for rain, he would say, well, Allah, He, I would not do that until each one of you gives us sadaqa. Each household gives us other for each individual in that house. They said, what's the sadaqa? He says, you know, some dates, some wheat, whatever, you just give out sadaqa to purify yourselves. So he was following the scriptures that they had at the time.
And then after that, he would gather them. And then he would make dua, they said, as soon as he made, the moment he put his hands down after the DUA was stopped raining. He never missed it once.
Now, what happened? This man reached old age. And then his health goes down until the moment of he realizes he has just a few moments to live. Then he turns to the people around him and these three assets to say, and the young Arab men who joined them, they were around him.
They were around him. He said, Do you guys know? He says, at a drone, a manager a beam in Alden, come here.
It had the Sahara. He said, Do you know what brought me from the fertile lands, by the way, it's natural Syria, which is Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria today. And some parts of Iraq.
It was such a fertile, it's not as it is, as it is now. Even 300 years ago, it was much more it was all forestry was a lot of there was a lot of vegetation, the climate was different. So it was such a beautiful, probably the best place on earth to live in at that time. So he said, Do you know what made me leave that beautiful land with all the, you know, the fruits and the blessings of Allah can come here to this desert? What do you think brought me here? They said what he said, It's the time of a prophet.
It's the time of a Prophet that he would come. And I was hoping that I would, and he was to be sent in these areas. And these lands, and I traveled and I came here moved here in the hopes that I would actually live long enough to witness him live long enough to witness him.
But so you guys when He appears, believe in him, and he passed away. And that was before the process even comes to Medina.
For us, we Muslims, how do we hold such people who believed in the previous revelation, before the advent of Islam before Islam being there, we see these are true followers of Musa alayhis salam, a Sally Sam for for us, these are generally speaking Muslim, people who follow the Scripture. These are Muslim because the prophets all came with the religion of Islam submitting to Allah Subhanallah to Hannah.
So this was the story of these people, but not everyone in them actually believed in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in that, in that sense. There was another man, another Jewish man who was as well very righteous. And here we have
I forgot his name. A little bit can find it.
there was one called you shut your SHA. SHA.
So we have a young companion called selama Ibnu. Salem urban watch. Selamat mussalam. We're gonna watch is a companion, a young companion. And he comes from a Jewish from Jewish roots. So he says,
one of the rabbis, one of the rabbis his name was Yasha was very righteous people loved him very popular person. He got on with everyone. And he used to swear to be used to gather people and say, Well law he I can see the signs. This is the time of the last prophet and messenger being sent. So you guys, if he appears, you believe in him. And he says will lie people there is life after death. He was used to speak to the Arabs. There is life after death. And the Arabs loved him. The Arabs connected with him. So they asked him so when is this profit going to be sent? He says So Now who's the integrator we said the young companion.
He turns to that young companion who was a child at the time and he says
he will appear in the lifetime of this little kid.
That means this soon, it will be soon. And interestingly, the prophet Salam comes to Medina when new shot was alive.
USIA was alive, and he sees the prophets of salaam coming to Medina, what was his response?
so people who used to be his students, they come to Him they said, Isn't he the person who told us about? He said yes Wallah, it is him but I'm not. I'm not going to follow him.
I'm not going to follow him. And you will see sometimes people know the truth but they decided
to follow it. So not everyone who rejects the truth actually, most of people who reject the truth, turn away from the truth or cast doubt on the truth. They have some reason.
And usually it's personal. Usually, it's personal. We mentioned the story of a boy Celine, right? He the father of Anis, even another.
We said when he realized the prophets I send them probably, I probably haven't mentioned will come, the story will come, okay, the story will come.
He hears that the Prophet SAW Selim, he actually embraces Islam, and he realizes the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of the Quran is talking about alcohol and about karma in the negative sense. So he senses that soon, he anticipates that Islam is going to make alcohol haram. And he so he goes to his wife, and he says to her, Listen, in the Mohammedan, you're available 100 Muhammad is insinuating something about his implying something about alcohol, and I fear he's going to make it haram and I can't live without it. So he said, What are you going to do? I'm gonna leave, leave well, he leaves Islam.
Not only he leaves Islam, he leaves Medina altogether heard. And he travels to he travels to a sham, and he settles in a sham.
And he turns converts to Christianity.
His love for alcohol made him leave Islam
made him leave Islam. And then he dies that that is a non Muslim,
doesn't Muslim. So usually people will turn away from the truth, they have some reason they have some reason could be personal trauma
could be personal trauma.
They associated something negative with Islam, or the teacher or with a parent. And they think that Islam or could be peer pressure and social pressure from society and from the media. And they can't handle this they want to fit in all right, and they find Islam is whole standing between me and this, although it doesn't, but it's just their limited understanding of Islam. So the Sandman I want to fit in. So they their mind figures out a way to sort of discredit Islam, so it makes it more rational for them on our man I want to believe I can't believe in something that isn't have proven so on and so forth. And then unfortunately, they
they stoop to a level where they decide to give up on Islam, something like this, or someone falls in love with a girl or girl falls in love with a young man. And obviously non Muslim, how am I gonna get you know, get married on my getting in live my life with them and things like that, and my family will stand against me and and so on religion, Lord, let me you know, get rid of the whole thing. Get rid of the whole thing and let me do what I want. And sometimes this process this this rationalization process happens unconsciously, the person is even unaware of it. And they might even start citing some scientific philosophical arguments. And that's all on the surface. This
rationalization The reality is, there's something personal, there is something personal. So this man is well for him. He was expecting you shall he was expecting the prophets of salaam to be to come from a Jewish lineage.
But he didn't when he didn't. He said I'm not gonna follow him. They said, Is it either money we're talking about? He said, Yes, indeed he is. But I'm just not gonna fall in.
Period. So not everyone accepted the truth.
In that sense, someone else's Well, we have one of the leaders of the Jewish tribes. And here his daughter Sofia, the daughter of
his daughter, Sophia, who will later on become the wife of the prophets of Allah who said
she says I was a young girl. And my father loved me to bits. Just like my uncle as well. Her uncle.
Boy, yes, sir. About Yes, sir. Uncle said my father loved me. And my uncle loved me more than his own children. So every time they saw me, they would just run to me and you know, give me a hug and cuddle and kisses and they just loved me. Every time they saw me, they face would light up.
So one day, they left the house early in the morning, early in the morning, and I didn't see them all day. Then in the evening, they came towards madlib time. And when they came, I usually rushed to them and they usually, you know, run rushed around to me and give me this hug and so on and so forth. So she said, when I saw them, I ran to them. They didn't even see me. They were consumed with so much worry and stress. And they just walked past me and ignored me completely. And I realized that we're stressed out so I listened to the conversation. And she says my uncle sister my father.
So whenever it is always he said
a Hua Hua is a him
So they went, when did that happen? When did this happen? It happened when the Salem entered Medina, so they went to see him. He says, Is it him?
He says Nam Walla Walla. Indeed. Yes, he is. recognized him. He's in their scripture.
Allah Talley, Fubini. He was referred to he says, you know him with his detailed description. You sure but he said, It's none other than him.
Call anomala call of a mother for UFC coming home says so what do you have towards him? He says either what to who? Allah Hema Buffett. So what is what is it? What are how are you going to do with it? He's the uncle asks variable after he asked his own brother. He says, I'm going to his enmity for as long as I live. I'm going to take him as my enemy.
Again, personal reasons, personal reasons. Here's when the ego personal reasons stand in the way of a person accepting the truth, unfortunately.
So not everyone accepted. The Prophet SAW Salem and not everyone, not everyone rejected. We are, for example.
One of the rabbis and the scholars of the Jewish tribes, Abdullah Abdul Salam,
one of the main main scholars and leaders of the Lagna Salaam.
He was fixing some, you know, he had his own farm and his own garden, he was fixing some of his deep trees and he had the tools in his hands. He hears that a prophet has arrived in Medina.
It rings a bell with him.
So he doesn't even have the time to wash his hands or even put his tools back. He rushes toward the prophets of salaam was with these tools still in his hands, as he was, you know, fixing the day trees. He goes to the Prophet SAW Salem, and he sees him he says, so he says, Filum falafel to Allah wa G find a Model A to help him to, to help him to another Jehovah is it would he cut them.
He says, I went to see the prophecies. And when I saw his face, I knew this was not the face of Elia. It was not the face of a liar.
So he approaches the prophets of Allah.
He approaches the problems.
And he says, I want to ask you about three things. Three things. No one knows them, but a prophet,
but a prophet. Now prior to this, he hears the prophets I send them giving commands and there is a beautiful message here. He says when I saw the Prophet and realized this was not the face of a lion, I hear him giving directions to his followers and advice and problem says up to him what Pam will actually sell them with little little ham was a lovely lady when nurse when he entered Hello Ginetta Bismillah the Prophet SAW Selim says and this hadith This is the first thing I do love Islam hears from the prophets of Salaam. He says feed people share food,
of Chu Salam spread the greeting of peace, salam, WA Slidell arhaan connect to your relatives and your kin.
Wa sallahu wa Nasaan yam and pray at night when people are sleeping, the whole Ginetta Besana you will enter paradise in peace.
Listen to the beautiful instructions. When he hears all of this it makes sense. Makes sense that the Lama center so he approaches the Prophet SAW Salem, I'm not sure the the approach him straight away. Or did he go back and then approach him another time because these are two different variations. But anyway, he approaches the prophesies.
And he asks him questions and he says
he said I'm going to ask you about three things. Analysis nomadic the servant of the Prophet Solomon narrates the story of the young, the young boy.
He says in the SLO controller in de Alamo. Hoonah, Illinois, I'm going to ask you about three things. No one knows them but a profit. But a messenger. It seems that this is something they knew from the Scripture. She asked him, man a well a sharp Ursa. What is the first sign of the nearness of the hour of the day of judgment? was the first sight
one that a whistleblower Armenia could have had origin what is the first food offered to the people of Ghana in Ghana? Third one Megan 01 at the ILA, OBE were either on me and what makes a child take more the likeness of his father or his mother. The prophets of salaam says Akbari Bharani between Nigeria and the person says, debri told me about these things previously, the answers to these questions. So Abdullah Salam says Gibreel promises Yes.
Even Islam says there Lika will Yahoo demon almanor Iike
he says, this is the enemy of the Jews among the angels.
So the Prophet SAW
Salam recites the verse.
Old Man Can I do one little breather? For Enola Zilla who are currently BKB de la he most of the economy muy bien, la moda Walshaw nominee, say whoever takes to breed as an enemy, that Allah has sent down Gibreel to your Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam with giving you the revelation and giving you the glad tidings and the guidance.
So the prophets of salaam says the first sign to point out the newness of the Hereafter is now on Raju, Elena. Similarly, maturity
it's a fire that would appear in the east and we push people to the, to the west, now a mushrik and then McRib the East and the West. The Arabs in the Arabian Peninsula use these in a specific sense, not an open sense. So much should work for the Arabs was more of what is known today as Iraq and
the north of Yamama, which is around
what's this called in Saudi, which is to the south of Kuwait, where Jubail is the east, the North East of Saudi Arabia today, along with Iraq, with the southern parts of Iraq, the West for the Arabs was beloved the sham was beloved a sham.
So this is how the Arabs in Mecca and Medina, this is how they use the word Mishra and Maghreb mushrik, and Maghrib.
And they also use them another sense to include the Measures To Include include the area of Iraq, and everything beyond it, which is now Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and even India.
And the Muslim was still glad to share the area of Russia.
So the Prophet SAW Selim says that's the first sign the second sign, or the second answer is the first thing that the people in general would be offered as a food is the surplus of the whales, liver. Now don't ask me what that is. I really have no clue.
So it's easier the two capital hoods the surplus or the extra on the whales live deliver what that means. I personally don't know.
What either Saba coma or Raju, Lima and Martinez are unwilling to either A, B or E that's about karma will not attend, as I tell you what, what gives the child the likeness of the father or the mother. He says,
If the water of the mother precedes the water of the Father, the child takes more the likeness of the mother, and vice versa. Again, what does that mean in scientific terms? This has to be understood properly. I'm not a specialist in this. So I don't know some people take this in a very literal sense. And they like understand it their way and they say, oh, scientifically, there's no proof for that. No, you have to be careful how you understand what the Arabs meant about these things. And then you start comparing them to what we know about science today.
So I'm the loudness and I'm gonna hear these answers. He says a shadow under era lower shadow, Anika Rasul Allah, I testify that Allah and that You are the messenger of Allah. These are clear signs for me. Then he says, Yeah, rasool Allah, my tribe, my people, a non Coleman, but these are deceptive liars, liars. So if I if they know I've turned into a Muslim, they will speak ill of me. So when I recommend you invite them, and speak with them, and ask them who they see me to be among them. How do they how do they see me? What? Like, in what light they see me? What do I mean to them? And I would hide.
So the Prophet said, yes. So President calls upon some of the leaders they come and the President says yeah, yeah, I'm actually I would like all the Jews, the Jews, the inhabitants of Medina. You guys know in my in your scripture, that I am the messenger of Allah, you guys have a clear and there's no doubt about it. So believe in Allah subhanaw taala This is not we don't know that in our Scripture. It's not known as scripture and we don't believe in you. So the prophets of salaam says so what do you think of Abdullah Abdul Salam?
urogen Infocomm Abdullah Salam what kind of man among us have the Lawrence now they said hey, you're on our blog or you didn't.
They said he's the best among us. And he comes from the best family
and he's the most knowledgeable among us. And he comes from the most knowledgeable family
of Allah salaam, was hiding behind a curtain he comes out in front of them he says a shadow en la ilaha illallah shadow no Mohammed rasool Allah. I bear witness then. But Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah this is the messenger of Allah. Straight away. What did they say? Is it Sharona with no Shereena? Yeah, they said the worst among us from the worst family among us straight away, straight away.
So anyway the Abdullah Salam he says to the prophets of salaam after that I told you I just told you what's always gonna want to happen but anyway, now let's go to going to finish soon inshallah don't worry
this is actually interesting.
The problem lives first in the house of we said who
you will Ansari is from banana jar. Now, although you will and Sally has house with two stories, two levels
he offers the prophets of salaam
There's lots better for you. The Prophet Islam says No, they've been the first floor, it's easier for me can just exit the house quickly, no issues. And people will come and visit me you know, it's a public figure, right? So people are going to come frequent the house. So it's very inconvenient for them to get to the second storey go through the house, and so on, so forth. So let me be in the first and you guys you get your privacy, you want your wife and the second floor that suffer deal. He
pushes the person that insists he agrees and agrees, so believable and sorry. Now he preferred prepares food everyday for the Prophet SAW Salem. And he sends it to him. The problem eats from it. He says the whole platter of food, the problem eats from it, then he leaves it for about a year to take it and he would eat with his wife later on. So he would take it and they would see where did the problem eat from they will take the same spot and try to eat it seeking a blessing of the Prophet solipsism. So at the time of the Prophet salaam that was permissible.
And then avoidable Ansari, probably the following day, probably the following day, he figures out. I'm walking around in my house, but maybe the profit column is underneath me. And he freaks out.
And he says, I can't be on a spot where the profit zone could be and possibly be underneath. So what does he do? He puts his back to the wall. And this is how he walks in his house.
His backs to the wall he he doesn't move around in the middle of the house. His back is to the wall. And this is how he moves around and his wife they couldn't even like have a normal day.
Why? Because he says I don't want to be above the Prophet sighs.
You see the love. The respect of the Prophet SAW Salem
that he goes to the province of Simon says yes, please make it easy for me. Make it easy for me like man, I can't even do anything in my house. I'm I'm living we say nobody can help will help. Right? You just you're holding on to the wall. Because he's keeping to the edges of everything. He cannot walk around. Why? Because he just the possibility of the Proxxon being underneath him at one point in time is devastating for him. He could not handle that. So he says jasola Please go up as promised him says it's easier for us. It's better for us. It's fine. So he sends food that data the Prophet SAW Salem
and when he comes to take it at the time, point in time for him to take it. When he goes he sees that the food is still as it is. He freaks out he thinks the problem is upset with him with something he says almost in Java like you didn't touch the food. The prophets of salaam says in the audit to fee he had he has a little hobby that you guys use this smelly thing which is the garlic. They cooked it with garlic porcelain did not like garlic. He says what an add on energy what an emoticon analogy, and I pray all the time I pray to Allah. And I don't want a bad breath when I'm calling upon Allah subhanaw taala you guys eat it. Nothing wrong with it. But for me, I don't eat
So avoidable and Sadie says almost in your life. You don't like it? We don't like it. We're not going to eat it. And ever since he never ate kazik like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that night. I will you will Ansari is in his house. And they have this
water jar made of clay
And it has water in it. And they didn't have like solid roofs at that time. Right. So it was made mainly of wood and some leaves tree leaves. So if there's any leak, and obviously any water spilled is going to leak downstairs. As soon as it breaks, and there's moisture and wetness there.
He freaks out so he takes the only blanket he has with his wife and he drives the whole thing with it frantically.
And obviously stress like your back is to the wall you can't walk around in the house. He's so stressed out because he's so careful about everything that he goes to the browser and says oh please messenger of Allah. Just take the second floor. Let me go down the proximal realizes.
Okay, hello as you take the first floor. I will take this second take it easy
happened, this is how it goes. So that's our way you. And sorry, Robbie Allahu Anhu. He's just shows the love of the prophets of Allah also shows the easygoing ness of the messenger. So
imagine the respect the all that these companions treat the person. And so the person I'm with, yet, very simple, very simple. There are people when they walk around, they expect others to open the doors for them.
They expect others to give them the greetings be humble, Hola, this doesn't count. It has no real value. There is no real value. The real value is the impact you leave in people's hearts. The benefit, the value you offer people in their life, that's that's really what counts. Everything else is just going to go and evaporate.
But you can see, I would say, you know, the chest of avoidable on salary was was vaster and bigger than his house. That's the beauty. That's the hospitality. That's why the prophets Allah Salam says, You should Allah and your humble answer, Allah as my witness that I love that answer. Then he says bull and SODIMM in an email, he says loving the answer is part of iman
is a man who
says, a sign of a man is that you love the answer. Well, I am a 25 unsolved and a sign of hypocrisy is that you hate them.
That's the answer. They have a special space because of the their generosity and hospitality has no match. There's no match and Allah Subhanallah praise them in the Quran. Your Honor, Allah unfussy him when you cannot be him Kasasa. They give you preference over themselves even when they are in need.
This is an unmatched level of generosity, And subhanAllah they set the example for everyone to follow up the Allahu anon.
So now again, people still stormed the house of the residence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And
a lot of people are coming to Islam from outskirts of Medina, people are coming outside of Medina, some new Muslims are coming. And that shows, you know, when you have power people buy into what you have. It's easier for people to believe Subhanallah that's how humanity is. When you have power, you have influence. People want to side with you. It doesn't mean that everyone sides with you when you have power that they are fake. No. It means it's just easier for people, you know, to side with whoever has power and influence. It's easier. So if the ones who have power are the true believers, it makes it easier for others just to follow up. That's it. That's it. And we shouldn't accuse
people with their intentions by the way, because sometimes people are on the verge of believing and they need this small push and it happens by these kinds of parameters. Now the prophets are Salam is back and now he's in Medina, who appears, the man who gave him sadaqa when he was in Cuba, the poor man, the Persian man who has he gave him a sadaqa now when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu when he was sitting down
and this time he has something else.
He sneaks out at night and he comes to the salon this time in Medina and he says I noticed last time you did not eat from my sadaqa so I brought you a gift today and it was some fruit. The prophets of salaam takes the gift. What does he do with the gifts? Next week inshallah we will find out. So all of you are invited to join us and sha Allah. If we have one two questions, I can deal with them before inshallah we go to the potluck questions, preferably about the topics we discussed covered.
Okay, the difference Good question the difference between gift and charity between sadaqa and headier. The intention
The intention, you give it as a sadaqa it's a different intention that you're a person need. I give it to you because you need it. Okay, and I consider this to be a sadaqa My intention is that it's an act of charity. But Hadiya is not necessarily given to someone who's in need, but it's given as an expression of love.
So what's the difference the intention, do the intentions do intentions have consequences? Absolutely. intentions have powerful consequences Yes. Yeah.
this is filmer rissalah
This is a movie the message, right, but it's the story. The story, by the way is in some narrations, but the stronger narration actually indicates that the camera was supposed to
stop at one point where the problem is supposed to take a temporary residence until he finds his permanent place of residence. That's the authentic narration. I think I have it here so I can see the
so that one is in the books of history, but it doesn't have a proper chain of narration. So
let me see the narration that mentions because that's the strongest stronger narration
Yeah, so this narration is actually in several different ways help and it's an authentic narration. This is in the theater of a mishap where the person went to the house of Ebola you and that's where the cameras stopped. Okay, because they were going to come to the story or where the, of where the prophets of salaam chose the Masjid. Which area and his house How did this happen? There was a different story. It's not the camel that chose that one. Okay, yeah. So this credit filmer reseller for that, this credit line, that comarca that's enough inshallah you can guys, join the potluck. Enjoy it because I've been more careful coming in for your attention. And Shala we'll meet next week
again after Aisha masala Messina, Muhammad Ali. He was already he was
