towards the lcada. Now,
it's been a year now, since the prophets Allah Allah when he was salam set out from Medina towards Mecca to make the umbra.
And we know the year before, which is the year six Angel, people of Makkah refused to allow the prophets of Solomon to McCann, they reached an agreement, which was named social media or the treaty over Hedeby. And one of the conditions in Saudi Arabia, that the Muslims don't make unwell this year. They go back to Medina, and they come one year later to perform their armor. Now the time has come is little Qaeda. One year later, you're seven now. So the Prophet salallahu Salam commanded the Muslims to get ready for the umbra.
So about 2000 people 2000 Men 2000 Men joined the Prophet SAW Salem and along with them, there was some women and children. So they head towards Mecca. The Prophet Sosa Lemery leaves a person in charge of Medina, his name is or wait or wait away for about a daily
and the prophets of salaam takes with him 60 camels to slaughter as heavy 60 camels to slaughter as part of his pilgrimage as part of his aroma.
The prophets of salaam also commands the Muslims to take along with them their arms, the shields, the armors to get ready for a war. Obviously, the person was going for Onra. But he didn't feel safe enough. He thought Qureshi might set him up. So he wanted to be ready, just in case as a precaution. Now shows again
that taking precaution is extremely important in all of our efforts. Yes, things might be going the way you want, hopefully. But there is a possibility things might just get off track and you get in trouble. So it's better to be ready. So it's better to have Plan B. With every or every all your affairs, it's better to have Plan B when you can afford to do that. So the prophets, Allah tells the Muslims to take their arms with them.
And when the Muslims get into the state of a haram from the Khalifa, which is called today as a br Valley, the prophet Salem keeps the the ones who are riding horses,
under the leadership or not necessarily leadership, but they were headed by Muhammad Abdul Muslimah Robbie Allahu anha. And they were ahead of the Muslims. The other ones were marching behind them.
When they reached an area, which is called middle of the Huron and between Mecca and Medina,
some group of Polish meet the Muslims on the way.
So they need first Muhammad Domingo Mustermann, his group and still the prophets of Salaam and the companions are behind them. At a distance there is a there's a bit of gap between them. So when they see Mohammed Abdullah, Muslim, or those guys who call I see Muhammad Mustafa, they asked him, Why did you guys come like ready for war is supposed to come for Umrah?
Obviously, he must have told him but these guys went to Makkah straightaway. And they told the people of Makkah, that, you know, Muhammad is coming, and he seems like he's ready for war.
So far, he said, we still upon our agreement, we haven't violated the agreement, why would he approach Maccha, seemingly ready to fight.
So the Prophet sallallaahu Salam heard that the people of Quraysh are actually expecting or they're worried about the arms issue. And
also Quraysh, were expecting the Muslims to come around that time. And they always there was, there was some kind of propaganda against the Muslims. Obviously, when you want to demonize your enemy, when you want to get the general public to take a stance against someone, antagonize that person or that group of people, you just give false publicity. And that's what the people in McKennitt and that's sometimes you know, what Muslims are being given in the media, you know, individual case, like examples have been
generalized. Some false examples, like those extreme groups, they're examples are highlighted that given the limelight in the media, so that the Muslims get a bad name. So the general public around the world, they get an impression all these Muslims are just the backward the savages, the terrorists, the stupid, etcetera, right. So the same was done to the Muslims in the early days. People don't realize we're seeing these Muslims now and lead because Medina and we said that previously by the way, Medina was no
For some sort of a plague or have some sort of some sort of plague, everyone who entered Medina really struggled from that. And some people sometimes some people died like the father of the prophets of salaam died because of that the mother of the person died because of that.
So many people died because of what they called human Medina, the fever of Medina with the plague of, of Medina, but we know when the porcelain made hijra, the Muslims, the early migrants, actually they got sick and the person who made the DUA and Allah subhanaw taala sort of cleared Medina of the plague. So still people of Makkah held on to that kind of spirit stereotype that those Muslims are coming from Medina and these people are like, the soul worn out by by the plague, by the fear of going to secrecy, people are weak. So the prophets have similar structure that companions to sort of pull themselves together physically as they approach Medina to the point that some of the companions
said to the Prophet and why don't we just, you know, slaughter some of our camels become ones that are used as writing animals and we eat from them and we sort of get healthy and you know, put on some weight so these people see that we're not actually like destroyed with the with the fever or the plague of Medina. The prophecy has said no, collect whatever food you guys have put it together and they obviously put it together. And the Prophet SAW Selim made dua, on that food and they eat and Allah subhanaw taala put Bala cadet
in Islam, is it better to eat together or to eat individually?
Well, the the general the general ruling Allah Subhana Allah says lay Sadiq Khan, Jonah Hunter Kulu Jamie and I watched that there's no Harmonia whether you eat individually or cooked altogether. There's no harm.
But when people eat together, Allah Subhan Allah blesses the food. Allah Subhan Allah blesses the food so usually you will see for like incidents like this, the person would bring that food together he would make dua and it would be more than enough.
And sometimes the Prophet was a few are like two people you have food or you are your one.
You one person you have your food, there's another person doesn't have food, you know, invite them you guys eat together, the food of one person is enough for to buy the blessings Allah would sort of put blessings in that type of food. So in Islam, you can eat individually, you can eat together, no harm, but it seems there's more Baraka when people sort of eat together.
So the Prophet Salam is getting very close to Mecca. He reaches a valley called Buckner yeah judge and they're Croatia worried because Mohamed Salah Salem has arms, the Muslims are ready sort of for war. So they send again MC rosmino halfs, same guy they sent during before just before So hello, Debbie, a year ago. So Mykolas comes in, he meets the Prophet SAW Salem. And he says,
oh, Mohammed like you were not known to be treacherous like to go back on your agreements. Never in your life. Why do you want to enter Mecca, the harem of Mecca with arms, which is a violation, by the way.
And you already have an agreement with them that you would only come with the personal weapons, which is swords in the sheath. The Prophet Solomon says I will not enter Mecca with my suits. So the guy figured out okay, homages. And the Muslims are taking their arms. Why just as a precaution, they're not they don't have any bad intentions. So he goes back. He says that's what we know about you that you are truthful to your word. He goes back to McCain tells him Don't worry, Mohamed is not here to fight.
Now people have Maccha
they realize Mohamed is just at the borders of Morocco. What do they do? And the agreement is that Mohammed sauce among the Muslims come and they stay in Mecca for three days. Three days in Mecca. So if people have got a hitch, someone will say we don't want to be in McAllen. And Mohamed is there.
That's how much enmity they have. So they leave McCann they they sort of like probably they built built a camp around on the on the mountains around Mecca. Some of them said no, these people come from Medina and there's a plague so we don't want to catch the contamination.
So generally speaking most of the people of Makita slough Makkah, and they camped outside of Makkah, except for a small group of the leaders in Makkah they still were in inside the hidden inside the masjid when the Prophet Solomon the Muslims came.
So the prophets Islam approaches Maccha comes from throughout June
and basically, still I mean, there's a gate in the huddle now called bubble June. Okay, the door of June which is towards a mountain there's a mountain mucker called in June. And that's when where the prophets of salaam
entered the Helen with the Muslims.
Now Mohammed bin all Muslimah
and his group, the one the ones who are leading the whole journey from from Medina to Makkah, they stayed outside with the arms, the process of them kept them kept the arms with them. And they were so they were looking after the arms and they were camping outside on
the prophesied and takes one group of the Muslims to make the umbrella. So as they are entering Mecca, the Muslims say we surrounded the Prophet sallallahu Sallam we kept close proximity to the messenger Salam because we were afraid that some of the people of Makkah might shoot him from a distance. Again you can see there is no trust on both sides. Why because there's a lot of negativity to that relationship for so many years and it's hard just to you know, trust those people and then they could sometimes they could use like
when one lunatic among them to Shoot The Messenger Solomon Sela he's just a crazy person. He just a mad person. He's mentally ill.
And no so wasn't
wasn't really intended. It wasn't like staged or planned.
So the prophets of salaam enters the Haram through Bab Benny Shiva and
and Abdullah Harold the Allahu Anhu. He starts actually, Abdullah what how was a poet and he was a very sensitive poet. He was a very sensitive person, by the way, like a very soft person. So he started he initiated some lines of poetry and he's in Arabic he says, Hello bunny, COFA confetti and stability. Hello for color fade if you are solely here and no Baba Kamala Willie Kumar Balbina comm Allah, tansy, Lee Barber, New Zealand, Hannah and Mattila here we have hero Khalid Anthony D single, you guys like you and non Muslims, you know, open the way for us, because all the good is with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We are the ones who are actually now defeating you by the
fulfillment of the Quran. Just as we won the war against you when it was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when he's saying and if you don't do that will basically destroy you.
So I'm gonna hottub says to Abdullah,
he says, like we are in the Hallum in the house of Allah and you're speaking poetry. And you know, in Islam,
for example, sort of the sha Allah Allah Subhana Allah speaks with a negative sense about the poet's will shadow yet to be on Formula One. Lm Turon now vikhroli word in your hormone one Gnomeo Luna man if I don't lol Latina almond Awami lasagna. So Allah says about the poet's and that's not can can you guys close the door sorta.
the last mantra says,
The poets are followed by those foolish people.
Don't you see that they actually seize every opportunity to sort of, you know, say whatever they want to say. They're basically bounty hunters, a lot of those poets were just, they would go on praise wealthy people, they will praise leaders and men of power in order to get some kind of money and status. That's it. So the Quran condemned that. But the scholars of Tafseer they say not all poets, this doesn't apply to all poets, but those who use poetry for that kind of goal.
And again, Allah subhanaw taala, even he sort of elevated the Prophet Salam above poetry.
So Allah says, he's not a poet. He's not someone who's giving you poetry. So this is why generally speaking poetry, although it was valued a lot and respected among the Arabs, yet, in Islam, it was not really seen in a very hot and very, like, high status, it wasn't given that high status. Why one reason as the scholars explain that Allah subhanaw taala wants the upper hand to be for the Quran and the focus to be on the Quran. Because you could actually poetry, some of it is really beautiful and could take you away. And that's what happens with people who are obsessed with songs and music. Some people are so obsessed with that, that
it's actually hard to, for them to pay attention to anything else. And that's why she had Islam Tamia, he says,
if a person is really obsessed with history and the stories of other nations that would not that would take them away from the Quran.
That would take them away from the Quran. He said if some people are interested so much in poetry and poetic language and a lot of those like,
you know, eloquent forms of speeches and literature in a language. If they're so obsessed with it, it would sort of give them some sense of full sense of satisfaction.
To the point that they would not feel any need to engage with the Quran and benefit from it. And that's actually true. So it's good any engagement that a person has. It should be moderate. It should be moderate. So, I'm saying to Abdullah, you're just saying poetry when we are entering the house, you're supposed to make dua now on Quran about all of this. Now the Prophet SAW Selim says Kellyanne, who Jamar prosom says Leave him leave him Yama. Why? Because yes.
Because you're here, you're about it's time to pray to Allah subhanaw taala time to make
time for devotion. It's not a time for poetry now. And rightly so. Generally speaking, the prophets of salaam sees the bigger context here. Why was the bigger context there is these people of Makkah, who looked down upon the Muslims, and they speaking ill of the Muslims.
And then, sort of Abdullah milawa Is, is sort of fighting back with words. They're using words and propaganda against the Muslims. He's fighting back with the same words the same style, and it's needed. As an Arabic they say Leia followed Hadid, Illa, Hadid, nothing fights back iron, but iron luck in audit, you cannot fight back force with gentleness. Well, sometimes in in certain contexts, it might work. But as a general rule, it doesn't. You need power to push back power, you need strength to push back force. And we say eliminate to convert been a political the elbow, if you are not a wolf, you'll be eaten by other wolves. And by the way, that's, that's true. And although this
is a digression, but it's actually it's an important that some people by the way, some people are not doing bad things, not because they are so good.
Just because there's they're nowhere near a place where they can be bad.
And this is why some thinkers think some of the European thinkers, I can't remember who exactly. He said, If
weak, people cannot claim to be good.
That's probably an exaggeration, you saying weak people cannot claim to be good, because you are in no position to be wrong in the first place. You don't have teeth. So you can't say, No, I'm good. I'm good person. I don't bite others. But you don't have to. That's probably why you're not biting others. Right? Well, there could be some, some weak people might be actually might actually be good. And this meaning was there among the Arabs. There was a poet that who spoke bad about his people, because they are so passive, that were taken advantage of and they were wronged by others, but they did not stand up for themselves. And he said, Well, I can owe me what in Canada, we added than they
saw me in a Sharifi in when Hannah, and my people, although they are great in number, they are incapable of evil, even if it's a little.
And that's what the what we call an Arabic hijab, that's actually a form of like derogatory speech towards them, like that's not a praise. So if you are good only because you're weak, or because you're incapable of doing that.
Don't think you know
that well about yourself. Because you haven't been tested, you haven't been tested. So again, so the profit is on MCs, Abdullah has seen this poetry in his fighting back in the same at the same same level with those people. And Bob is actually giving him a right instruction. Now this is time for worship, and he bad and you just,
you know, making some lines of poetry and singing poetry. The Prophet of Islam says hallelujah Omar Fela, Fela here as Seraphim may not have nibbly. He says, leave him at home, this is actually more painful or harmful to them than shooting arrows at them.
So again, the person was reading the bigger context. And that shows that sometimes people, you know, learn something.
This is good, this is bad, right? That's a basic level of knowledge. But when you engage with reality, by the way, life does not present you with simple situations. Usually what you have in the world is very complex situations. And if you have not seen the complexity of how different principles overlap and work together, you can't actually make a wise judgment. You can't wake away make make a wise judgment. So sometimes, this is what is a good advice for students of knowledge. And in the early years, I'd say early years, it could be up to 510 years, sometimes sometimes 15 years, is that don't jump to conclusions. And don't make a definitive sort of don't take a
definitive stance against someone if he's doing something or she's doing something you think is wrong, but I would say investigate more. Investigate more ask someone who's wiser than you or someone who is more mature than you someone who's more knowledgeable than you because sometimes
As what seems to be wrong, within a certain context actually, is needed. So the good is far greater than the bad in that situation. And that's exactly what happened. It's inappropriate to make poetry and start singing poetry, when you are actually going for you just entering the home, instead of just making dua and reciting Quran, you're making loads of poetry and you're just speaking ill of that of those people, you're sort of making a jab, derogatory kind of poetry against these people. And I'm gonna saying, you know, that's not time for it, the problem says, leaving, it's actually more harmful to them, it's more painful to them than actual kind of fight. So it's needed in that
So the Muslims thought that the Umbra and they start by doing the power of seven times the prophets of salaam instructed the Muslims
to do ramen, and ramen, we actually if you are able to do that and Umrah now, because of the numbers of people, it's really hard because of the congestion. It's really hard. But generally speaking, if it's clear, and you can do that, you're basically meant to,
to do ramen, which is to, it's not sort of jogging. You walk in fast, really fast. You're not running and you're not just walking than your normal pace. It's somewhere in the middle, where you show you have physical strength. And that's again, it's some sort of, again, it's psychological. Yes, people of Croatia just saying bad things about the Muslims, they're weak they are a worn out by the, by the the fever or the plague of Medina. But the problem is, is not show them that we're actually strong might say, why give these people an impression will last part of a long relationship of fights.
That's a long relationship of fights, and is part of psychological warfare. And sometimes among those people, you don't need to treat them as a group sometimes treat them as individuals, some of them when they see the Muslims, having gone through all this enmity with oration going through all these hearts and circumstances, you're there, Muslims are still strong, is actually might create an impression with some of those,
you know, some of the individuals and corporations, and it might be just the small push that they need, in order to turn to the other side, where they actually feel that they should they they need to join the Muslims. I'm going to see actually some of this is going to happen really shortly after this.
So the Muslims start doing the ramen.
so when the poorer you see them, they say, Oh, these are the guys who think they were they were destroyed by the fever of Medina, these people really strong, really strong. So it struck, it struck them how strong the Muslims were, then the porcelain when he made his dough off, finished, he prayed to God behind them. accom Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam, then the prophets, Allah makes a say, between the sofa and the Mattawa. And he was riding his camel, the prophecy that makes
say, on his camel, when he was on his Come on, by the way,
the wife can be made either on foot, or you could be in the old times, often people they did throw off riding a horse, a camel, a mule, etcetera. So it's okay to do to off to do say riding something and today, obviously, if you Someone is pushing you on the chair, that's okay. That's alright. And some people are being carried because they just can't even physically sit there actually, they have some sort of,
like, have this sort of, I don't know what it is. It's like the carrying them with something and they're just laying on their side or their back. And some four people are carrying them to make the tawaf, that's the loci and one of the actually ideas that was considered in Makkah, as they were making the expansions and I heard that I'm not sure but I heard that a few times, is that they said they were actually considering making a wealth making cots for the wharf. So it would be actually electric stuff and there would be sort of spikes coming out from the gala where they thought that would destroy the sanctity of the place. It would look more like a like Wonderland.
If you're writing to getting on some of the rides and they said it's not really appropriate we'll take the sanctity of the place and I think that's a wise thing by the way. I really think it's a wise thing because I think kids will start confusing that with with with funfair and etc. So I think it was a wise decision to keep it as it is and they just expanded the area for for tawaf.
So the prophets of salaam upon finishing his say. He gets his head shaven, and then he starts slaughtering the heavy. He start slaughtering the head he was said he brought with him 60
I'm one of the competitors to the props on why didn't you into cab inside the cab and that was the norm by the way. It was a normal thing to enter inside the cab. The president said no. And the reason he refused was people of Karachi, erected a lot of idols inside the cab. The President did not want to enter it this way. And we will see insha Allah when the prophets Allah Salam enters
the cab so the problem stays for three days there in Mecca. And the messengers are Salam, by the way, part of his plan in Mecca is
to marry Maimone, AB interhealth, Rali, Allahu Ana, that was the plan. So when the three days were over, the people of Croatia came to the Prophet and said, Okay, you've got your three days. Leave us alone. Now, literally, that's how they said, similar to that. You had your three days, like sort of get out of here.
So the problem said, you know, why wouldn't you guys let me stay a little bit more, and I would have my wedding. And I would invite you to food and they say La had a hammock. We don't need your food. That's how they spoke to him. So the prophets of Salaam and the Companions, they leave Makkah. Before leaving Mecca the prophets of salaam asks about Khalid Ibn Al Walid.
And he asks about him.
His brother, the brother of Hassan Malik, he was a Muslim already, actually demand will lead so the prophets of salaam are Swiss Khaled even will lead but Halima lead was not in Mecca at the time.
The prophets of salaam told his brother, well, we'll eat he said, you know, really like Khalid is a reasonable person. He's a person of like, he's, he's someone who can reason with his is someone who's got brains, right. And the prophets of Saddam, he always thought well of people who who are reasonable. And by the way, that's, that's quite telling that Islam itself is reasonable. And when a reasonable person is offered the true message of Islam, literally, there's no reason for them to sort of hesitate unless they're still not clear. So the prophets of salaam says to what will it he says your brother Khalid is a reasonable person I really feel bad why he's not Muslim, yet he has
not seen the beauty of Islam yet. So I'll Walid writes a letter
to his brother Khalid and he leaves it and so for someone to give it to Harley dignitary and it's called him a lead. And what he says in it so the prophets of salaam says about him, he says, mammoth Allahu jehlen Islam person like him, he's not ignorant about Islam, he's, he's now at this point, he's seen much about Islam so he should know about it. Well, oh, can a gigantic aviator who watched the whole animal swim in other machine, he can kind of hide on the hole. And if he were to use his his his skills and his power with the Muslims on the side of the Muslims against those non Muslims, it would have been better for him. What occurred them now who Allah up and we would have given him a
status above others. Someone might say,
why would you favor, lead over others no profits and suddenly seeing if he joins us will actually put him ahead of others.
Is that favoritism?
Well, if you are affected by the far left, you're going to say that
but actually hear the stories of the Prophet SAW Selim is actually appreciates competence.
That's why the Prophet Solomon says and Zillow, NASA Zillow,
and Zillow, NASA, mana, Zillow home.
So when someone has skill, it's normal, it just normal any human sort of society. Any human structure like social structure, people have if that structure is healthy, people have competence. They will rise high in the hierarchy. Normal.
Normal, that's that's that's how humans human societies function. That's how they work. But if you say oh, no, no, there are these are there were some Muslims here who were Muslim beforehand and will lead okay. But they don't have competence in warfare, going to know how to lead armies, they don't know how to map out a battle. They don't know how to make a good assessment of the enemy and come up with plans etc. Right?
You say okay, now these people were Muslims beforehand, you put them make them the leader of the of the army not harder. Why? Because he just became Muslim? No, that would be a very naive, impractical approach. And that shows that Islam actually does not support naivety. And by the way, Muslim scholars spoke about
and this is something not It's not to be mistaken, but it's this to be put in its right place. Some people are righteous,
the pious and they are sincere, but they're not practical.
There is this type of people. And there are people like people like Maddie COVID-19 For example, those worshippers known worshipers of Islam, if you were to read about the Allah
If I'm telling you
and I personally avoid speaking about them in public lectures, and the reason is, these people devoted their life just for worship, and they disconnected from life completely, completely.
And that's impractical, with for some people, a minority of people that works to isolate themselves from society, and live a life in seclusion, and just worship Allah and read Quran all the time. And they just get probably some source of income from family members, etc, through support, whatever it is, and for them, that's really good for them. But that's a small minority of people.
And that's why sometimes when a hotkey or speaker they give that example as if, okay, that's the example to be followed. I mean, no, I don't think that's a wise suggestion. And the scholars of Hadith in the books who were rejected when they talked about the invasive Hadith, they brought actually this issue up, they said, some people, like the lifestyle is good for them alone, but it's not for us as an example to be followed. Our role models the prophets arson.
So some people are righteous, as we said, and pious within themselves, but they're so naive with matters of life. And these people are not to be put in a position whether their naivety starts making decisions, that's not the right way to do things. Who do you put to be in a position of leadership? A person who knows about leadership? A person who has the expertise, a person who has the influence, a person who has the justice? Like some of the stories about and I think it was metacommunity. Now, I guess so when the Khalifa
How long is Rashid? He wanted to see him.
He refuses to go to any governor or any belief or anything. So homeless, she decides to visit him because he wants advice from him. And he goes to his house, he knocks on the door.
So I think one of the girls, one of his gill says, he says, Where is American dinar? She says, I mean,
I don't know where he is. He's probably somewhere. He says, no, no, I want him where is he? She says He's in his room. That's what he does all day. He's in his room.
So he said, he says I want to I want to go into his room, but don't tell him. So he goes into his room, he knocks on the door, he doesn't open the door. They insist until he opens the door.
And he knows it's the Khalifa.
So they say we opened the door and it's dark.
And we can't even see him.
So he says I start sort of, you know, putting my hands on the walls, trying to see where he is trying to reach out to him to grab him. He says then I got ahold of him sitting in one corner and he was weeping.
And he says, I want advice. He said, I don't want you to come into my life, like leave me alone. I want to just worship Allah and I want this.
And then he asked for advice. He gave him very profound and beautiful advice. But is that the example that you want to live by? Well, for some people, it might be the way it might be. But for the 99% of people actually even more than that. It's not actionable. It's not doable. It's not even healthy.
So again, when someone has a skill, you put the problem says and Zillow, NASA, Zillow home, put people where they belong, not because you are Allah, like a righteous Muslim, and you are really like honest, etc. I give you the responsibility of for example, a company or an organization, you will ruin it. She bought you, right? He's a righteous person, he has threatened life, practical side of life needs skills, you still need to be the language of this life. So not because someone is righteous or things are gonna work out for them? Not necessarily. Yes, that's a good sign. It's a good relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. Fine, perfect. But that doesn't mean every decision
they think of is going to be right.
So the prophets of Salaam is saying if holding the lead comes, we're gonna give him a status. Why? Because of his competence. It's a valuable thing. You don't want to take someone with competence and put them down. But then at the basic level, where you put ahead of them, someone who's dumb,
you'd kill that person. Literally, you'd kill it, you know, what kills talent is you put a boss on the
Like death is easier for them than that.
So the prophecies, Allah knows that and he says, This person is a person of expertise. Sure luck, he's going to be on top. He's gonna if he becomes a Muslim, we're gonna put him where he belongs, where he can sort of give maximum benefit, and that's reasonable. So if someone is just being too rosy and too
I would say too much of a communist and say no, no, he just became more
Islam, okay, he's just on the front lines with the other soldiers. No he's not because that's you don't take benefit of him you waste him you waste all of his wisdom and his planning and his his genius. You put them there, that's just stupid. And if you claim that justice you just don't know sometimes again people are so I would say
people some people call for justice without any differentiation.
Like it's like a very blank it's like a blanket. Okay? And you get every put every every one that you regardless of their expertise, but the situation calls for expertise. Now you give it to the person of expertise. And we saw the we will see how the Prophet SAW Salem when I'm robbing us
I believe it was honorable Ross.
Oh, no. So he'll have an AMA
Oh, man, I'm confused with the names now. I think I'm gonna ask when he becomes Muslim the prophet is LM gives him a leadership over in an army very like soon after his Islam over who's in his who's under his leadership. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu probably Allah.
Is that fair? Absolutely fair. Absolutely fair. So again, you know, in order to apply justice, by the way, inequality, you need to be wise as well. You need to be wise because if you just apply it regardless of any other considerations, that's it's, there's no better way than stupid to describe that. Okay, so the so the brother of Hungary whose name is invalid, his name is Edward Lee, who believe will lead son of Walid.
And that's okay. In Islam, by the way, can kind of father name his son after his own his own self? Same name? Yes, that's fine. And you will find and I heard this about Nigeria, you'll find like a lot you'll find someone whose name is Muhammad, Muhammad, Muhammad, Muhammad, Muhammad, Muhammad, Muhammad 20, grandfather's all Muhammad.
So you have this in certain cultures.
So Khalid Malik, when he receives that letter later on, he reads it, he says, and seems he was thinking he was thinking about Islam seriously considering Islam. He says when I read that, it sort of gave me that push that I needed to decide to become Muslim.
And we will see that this letter actually was the reason for culturally to become Muslim.
And then in Mecca, there was the daughter of she was probably a teenager at the time or maybe even younger daughter of Hamza I'll be Allah one.
Her name was Ramallah. And the cornea of Hamza of the Alana was Abu Omar. So his daughter Amara. Three people wanted to take care of her.
And they were all relatives. So they were I don't even know the toilet, wanted to take care of her and drive automobile pilot on to take care of her. And also the demeanor he wanted to take care of her but the Prophet SAW Salem.
The Prophet SAW Selim allowed Jaffa to take care of her because his wife was her aunt.
His wife, the wife of Jafar was the maternal aunt of Amal and the prophets of salaam says Aloha that will be Manzella till the maternal aunt is in the position of the mother is in the position of the mother.
Unlike sway she has precedence over the paternal aunt, which is the sister of the Father in issues of custody like this.
So the prophets of salaam Marie's, me Mona had been taught how to follow the Allahu Ana
in an area called SFX, which is outside of Mecca.
she stays with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
Maimunah dies year 51 After Hyjal so she outlived the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and she died in the same place where she married the messenger so salaam, the area called self
now the prophets of Allah salaam starts sending what we call Surya or Seraiah expeditions small military expeditions to some of the smaller other Arab tribes. As we said, who were conspiring against the Muslims, they either attack the Muslims in the in the past, or they were putting together an army to fight the Muslims the prophets Allah Salam sends a few of those
a few of those
expeditions and one of those expeditions was to Benny salaam to offer
The Muslim that refused and they killed the group of the companions who actually are 50 about 50 people who were there to sort of invite them to Islam.
Then we come to the year eight after hijra, and at the beginning of this year, the daughter of the prophets of Salaam, Zainab dice. She passed away out of the Allahu, and, and she leaves behind her or mana, her daughter, or mama, and she also leaves a boy called Ali.
But Ali dies during the life of the prophet saw Selim. As
I think he was around 10 years old when he dies or maybe a teenager and he died in the in the life of the prophet Salam o mama lives and she gets married, who marries her and even a polyp.
After the death of Fatima of the allowance, it will not be tolerated Mary's Oh mama
shows you the Ag thing was not the age was not a thing at that time, right.
Now we said previously around year two or three of the hijra, the last panel to Anna,
afterwards was better Allah made. It was the time Allah made alcohol haram. But there is a debate among the scholars that actually the year eight after hijra, is the time that alcohol was made heroin. And I've been looking at both.
Like both opinions, and honestly, it seems that it was year eight, after hijra, that alcohol was actually made out on there was at this stage. He was at this stage. So there's a few generations that sort of give strong indications that this is when alcohol actually became haram. Imagine when eight here after hijra, how many years into the prophethood of the messenger SallAllahu ala he was eight years plus before his or 13 years in Makkah, how long? 21 years.
So it takes 21 years to get to the point where to make alcohol haram.
And that's quite telling.
That's quite telling.
It shows what we call it to diverge incremental ism
in how Allah Subhan Allah sends down his Sharia. And it shows us well that Allah knows when to send down rulings.
Why didn't Allah Allah know Allah knew that he was going to make a cold haram right? But why did he only send that at a later stage? Because people would not be ready.
As HlV Allahu Ana said famous Hadith she said, if the first things instructions in Islam were don't drink alcohol, that would say, we don't want Islam, we're not going to give up on alcohol.
So it shows on the last verses for the Quran fit Decra and remind where the reminder is likely to benefit. That's why the Scholars say there's something called the like decide or fill element, which is basically being economic, when it comes to knowledge, like knowledge is not that you take as much knowledge as you want. Now we'll take the style of the companions of the Allahu unknown, they would take five verses of the Quran.
And they would learn them, memorize them, and then act upon them when they have done that sort of not act upon them. Okay, just do this that is done at once. And that's it. No, it's something you introduce into your life, it becomes a daily thing. So then they introduced into their life, when they have sort of integrated that into their life. Now they are ready to move on to the next stage and learn another five verses and do the same. And that's how they learned. So this kind of incremental gradual approach is the way and that's what the prophets have said, in the tin Dena Mateen, LP Rafi hibbett of this religion is strong, it's solid. So when you get into it, do that
incrementally riff here is gently like go slowly into it.
So that's why it's not a wise thing, by the way, to just bombard people with information this that this that this ruling, that ruling, you know that and there are speakers who really like to sort of impress audience, okay, there's a piece of information you guys don't know about here it is one of these people not ready for it.
And that's where I didn't know we talked about the long run, he said, had different NASA, be matter reform, to read on and you get the belong or pseudo. You tell people you teach people speak to people with what they are likely to understand and comprehend. Do you want people to reject Allah and His messenger? You can basically to say, no reject disbelief in what Allah has messages sent. Because if you overburden people, by the way, you can't act on everything at once. It takes time. It takes time to build yourself according to that. So thinking that oh, just as much as you learn and as much as you act, and that's how it works. That's chaos. That's chaos. No, Islam is for youth is
is a life journey you build yourself through it. So if you see someone who's very unlikely and you can tell these people the level of their Eman is not enough where you start telling them some rulings which are gonna say, which is most likely he's going to tell them forget about Islam and forget about the whole thing. I don't want to I don't want to do it. Why? Because they haven't built a level of Eman that will equip them and get them ready to deal with this and handle this. That's why the Scholars say and there's a book beautiful book by
Sheikh Sheikh from India, Chef Hassan ILAHA here are him Allah to Allah. He wrote a beautiful book and it's called the moral Atwal Mohawk are being taken into consideration the states of the people you're giving Dawa, to,
you're giving Dawa to. So there are people there are things about established, be telling them because if you tell them if they get to know this too early prematurely, it would cause them probably even to reject Islam, or even not to do it. So that's why some people think, Oh, let me get get as much as knowledge and as not as action. And that doesn't work like that. It really that's a very naive approach. You need to take that gradual approach so what you build you build strongly. So what you do, you can keep it for a life for your whole life. Now, it's just like you do it. And then that's it. It's out of your life. You can't you can't keep up with it. That's not the way to do it.
So you will find the scholars advising people that especially teachers and speakers and Imams, you should not just whatever you you know, just tell people about it. No, no look at the Lord Masada Lila one when he said cannot assume Allah is telling me to her Winona will no more ever Mahabharata SAMity Elena, personally, I'm used to not like speak to us all the time, he used to seize opportunity where it's good to sort of give advice and admonition, why he doesn't want to bore us.
So take a gradual approach, it's not a wise thing to just bombard people with information, especially if you see most likely they won't be able to act on it. Why? Because some people will just say, I don't want that at all. Other people will be completely crushed under that huge burden. I'm not at the level of that knowledge to handle it.
So so they'll fall in a state of guilt. And guilt, by the way will lead a person to sort of whip themselves and do more sense because it's easy to fall in despair, etc. There's a lot of issues, scholars spoke about this and in details.
So, so we say it seems stronger that alcohol was made haram in the early
segment of year eight after his urine, we know that it went we spoke previously about how it went through through stages. And that shows again, the gradual way to wean people off that, too, when people have that and why bad. That's why the way it's a very big concern with you know, we're Muslims were born into a Muslim family and a lot of things like we've learned a lot because that was our environment. We don't realize that when a new Muslim person comes into Islam, by the way, one of the biggest complaints they have is that it's completely overwhelming.
I think what's overwhelming Ickes you, you've been living with this all your life for them, you want them to learn that in a couple of days or a couple of months, man, it's just way too much you don't realize is way too much. So it takes them time, takes them time. They a lot of those rivets actually, they say like they've been through situations where they're praying, and someone says you praying wrong. Take it easy remembering for five days, I'm just learning, I'm just taking my first baby steps. And then someone say, Hey, you can't eat that you can't eat this. You can't, you know, do that you can't go there you go, you have to do that you have to do this. And they're overwhelmed.
Every one is being their teacher. And it's giving them instructions. And they just completely like
they have this kind of this sort of shut down completely shut down. They don't know how to deal with that. So again, that shows, you know sometimes our lack of wisdom in this in this regard. So we have to take into consideration human nature, human nature, why not because we don't want to share knowledge with people not because we don't want people to do good, not because we want them to do good and stay on it. We want them to build a good structure of faith where they will stay strong and and achieve this gradual progress rather than just, you know, get it all at once and then lose it all at once. And that's what happens often, by the way. It happens often.
The latest statistics, not latest probably six years ago in the UK, the IEA the guys sold to them or their Hamza sources and throw him green. They had some kind of a big research. And so they interviewed people on they had a questionnaire to send out to people to new Muslims and they they figured out the wrong 70% of new Muslims leave Islam within two years.
70% of people who take their shahada, they leave Islam within two years. That's a shocking statistic. That's serious. So we happy when someone take their shahada and welcome to Islam or give them hugs, right. But
within two years, 70% of them go back and leave Islam and a lot of them start proactively calling against Islam and attacking Islam.
Obviously, there's plenty of reasons but one of the reasons is actually this kind of overwhelm that they experience.
I'm more than than else.
He looks around and he assesses the situation, I'm going to ask what's called they're here to the Arab. They may not be genius, the genius among the Arabs, why? He was a very wise man, very strategic, politically, intelligence. So he literally he was a genius.
So he, he assesses the situation, he says, Look,
Mohamed is getting stronger year by year, he's just getting stronger, more followers and he could see the direction of everything is just showing that Muhammad is going to take over obvious and Mecca is getting weaker people in my car getting weaker. And he says, Man, I don't want to be in Macau and Muhammad takes over.
I don't want to do that.
So he agrees with some of his friends to go with to migrate to a Habesha a PC.
Say, man, we'll go stay away. This is like it's gonna be
this whole area will be on fire soon. It's obvious he could read that.
And he says then we go to Abby senior. He knows he's in good relationship personal really has a personal relationship within the Joshy Let's go man and just you know, take asylum the the peace, let's see what happens between quotation Mohammed, if Mohammed takes over we save here.
if Grace takes over, we're gonna go back to polish. Simple, so we play safe, and licorice deal with the fire.
So he goes to an adjuster and him brings some gifts. That's the normal when you enter a country you speak especially if you're a person of that caliber, you go and speak to the leader of that country. And the norm was actually to offer them gifts, you don't go empty handed. So he goes there and he gives him gifts. Linda Joshi is happy with that. And it was around the time when the prophets of salaam sent enrollment on mejor thumri to Anna Joshi. I remember when we said the Prophet Sam sent Amro, open Omega thumri. It seems that he sent him a few times to invite in the Joshua to Islam number. So admirable as says, I'm going to omit your debris in the court of
Nigeria, he says, Man, let me just speak to this guy in a gesture and hand me this guy over, I'll give you some money, I'll give you some gifts, hand him over to me. Let me kill him. And basically tomorrow if people of Makkah overcome Muhammad, and they just say, Why did you run away I say I haven't. I didn't run run away. I just was doing some business. But listen, I killed one of Muhammad's men for you, so he thought it would be a good thing for him. So he goes to the judge and he says, you know, give me this man. Give me this man, I'll give you gifts. So
when the Joshi did, his Max is on knows it's a sign of anger, basically. And he was extremely angry. And he says, You want me to give you the messenger of a man who receives revelation from Allah.
And he was shocked then and the Joshi says, Yeah, we
put any what Tibbett who for in whom Allahu Allah, Allah and Huck, when I ever heard on Allah and Khalifa who come out the hara Musa Allah for I don't know what
He says, Follow Him, follow Him. Listen, listen to me and just follow him. He is will law upon the truth and He will be given power over everyone just as Allah gave power to Musa overflow.
So Amber thinks about it. It seems in the midst of all of this, he decides to become Muslim. So we invited him to Islam and the Joshi we said in the gesture was Muslim.
So he says in the Joshi took away from me that I am a Muslim, and Natasha.
So he says, Then I
said, I go back to the Arabian Peninsula and I head to Medina on the way to Medina. He meets
holiday never worried.
He meets Halloween, will it? Now what's the story of Halloween we need? Let's see
Hello muriqui said he received the letter from his brother and will eat dinner will eat.
And the basic grammar, or Hamlet says, when I saw Mohammed coming for social for the first year, and I was about to fight against him, and he turned to middle of the Quran and he sort of diverted and not to face us. And we I saw him pray. And I could tell that he was protected from me. And then when they prayed, they prayed so little health. He said, Something struck me that this man is getting more powerful every year. And it seems that whatever we do, we're just making him stronger. So he said, I really thought about that.
And then when he said, I thought to myself, and obviously he could read this situation, he said, it seemed that Muhammad was going to get power over the Arabian Peninsula. So I said to myself, you know, shall I go to Abyssinia and live there? Again, the same thought as I'm robbing us,
or shall I go to
her Oculus and embrace it becomes a Christian or a Jew or whatever, just live with him, he says, but I don't want to live as a follower of these people again. So he said, When I was in that kind of thoughts,
Mohamed came to make his camera and what I was outside of Makkah, and he said, My brother leaves a letter for me. And he tells me about his conversation with the prophets of Salaam. And basically his brother says to him for Cedric yeah Femap at Fatcow converted Komodo salah, he says, you know, it's time to catch up on what you lost, you already fought against Muslims, you're just losing it, it's a losing sight that you're right. So catch up with us and not lose any more.
And he thought he said when I thought about that, I gave it a thought and decided to become Muslim and just go to Medina. So on the way he made some Ragna last as they were heading
to meet the prophets, Allah Allah, and he was in them.
But before that, he he basically, he met a few people from Polish. So he says, I wanted to see if anyone would actually join me in this journey and and go to the provinces and become Muslim. So I met safarnama Yeah.
And I said, Yeah, but what am I tell I'm Anna Hanafi he welcomed the Harlem Muhammad and a lot of people follow him that Allah Muhammad fintiba naffaa in the shut off and Mohammed shut off on Linna for about should deliver.
So he says to him, you know, you see what the situation is Mohammed is getting more power over Arabs and non Arabs. Let's go and follow Him. And you know, whatever honor and dignity Muhammad gets, we couldn't get it with him. So someone said no, he says, Let me apply it to whoever then he says if everyone follows him but me I will still not follow him. I'll be just by myself against him.
night he said I said to myself, Okay, like his father, his brother and his father died were killed him better. So I saw a cream Abidjan, I said the same and he gave me the same response like SFX one. Then he said I met with Madame Monopol Han I said to him, and I told him about my intention and he said you know, I was thinking the same along the same lines Let's go together.
so they actually they decided to go to to the prophets of Salaam and they meet harder to read on the way they meet Khalid when read on the way so I'm Robin OS comes to the Prophet salallahu Salam
Al Salam is told about them he knows that these people are have come to to Medina
Okay, so they came to the Prophet SAW Salem,
Hollywood lead came to the messenger salaam, and
he gave him beer.
And he took his shahada
then it was unreal on mobile OS his it was his turn. So the problem extends his hand farm last exceeds shahada and give his beta. He says I pulled my hand back.
I said I'll give you my bae. I with one condition.
said was the condition is one of all my sins past sins to be forgiven. The prophets of salaam says yeah, I'm rebellious. If NL Islamia, Jubo Makana Cobla, who in the ledger lotta job, uma cannot apply said Give me your hand because when you become a Muslim, you wipe out all your past sins, and you make a July it wipes out all your previous sins. So the Prophet then he gives the prophets of salaam Dube had the problem says Islam and NASWA
I'm Robin on us. People became Muslim but I'm Robin and asked believed
because Islam we know it's the external part of Islam, right? It's the act of worship, but the belief is a deeper thing. So the Prophet Solomon is showing the excellence of honorable house that he made it, he made him took this move with more conviction and the prophecy he was comparing him as some of the scholars said, compared to the people in Mecca who will become Muslim later on it seems he made that statement later on, because people in Mecca they became Muslim and they saw the problem dominant. Some of them became Muslim out of fear, not because they were forced into Islam, but they a lot of people, they're just gonna follow whoever has power, by the way. So they saw the prophets
of Salaam has power this, okay, we become Muslim.
And that's a very low level. Still Islam but it's a low level, but I'm gonna ask, he came to the Prophet Salam he decided to be Muslim himself. That's what the prophets of salaam says. He came out of email and the Prophet said, I'm actually used to take his counsel, like he used to consult with him over issues because he was already said he was there. He was a genius among among the Arabs.
And we lost lives until year 43 after his
40 until the year 43, after Hijra
and he dies in Egypt, he was the sort of the governor of Egypt
the prof Sam says about how to do more lead in now Jose from Minnesota Orfila, his sword of the one of the souls of Allah, that Allah Subhana Allah uses him to give the truth, power and
hardly even really, although they see his grave is in humps in Syria is a and they built a masjid over his grief, which is an incorrect act, by the way.
But there's a debate among the scholars and there is actually strong in the regions indicating that he actually died in Medina, other than homes.
Strong integrations that indicate that Ahmad prayed is Jinnah Janaza on him in Medina. So it's still an issue of debate among the scholars. And I think
I think it was
I mean, here's your last caller. And he's the he's the commentator of Sohail Buhari. In October he is the one who said most likely actually died in Medina. Not in enhance.
And Hollywood he died year 21 After Hyjal 2021 After the Hijra of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam during obviously if you left over on mobile hub
so still the profit center would send a few expedition military expeditions to different parts
and then after that we'll come to his what to motor has auto motor that happened in a sham in an area called Motor until today it's known as motor and the graves of some of the companies are still there actually was what to monitor so that's what we will talk about or discuss inshallah next week, so we'll stop here take a couple of questions if there is any
