for in us double Hadith, the kalam Allah azza wa jal Will Ferrell had you had you Mohammed in Salalah, Allahu alayhi, WA early he was sending them, or Shortland Ohmori Madatha to her Wakulla Mohaka 13. But there could be that young Bala. All praise is due to Allah we praise Him. We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide I testify that there is none worthy of our worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone. And I testify that Muhammad Sallallahu Ali, who were early he was

00:02:14--> 00:03:02

sending them is His servant and His Messenger, or you will believe, fear Allah as it should be feared and die not except in surrender and submission to your Lord, all mankind, be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person, and from him he created his wife, and from them both, he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is ever an old watcher over you or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The

00:03:02--> 00:03:24

best words are the divine words of the almighty Allah. And the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was selling them. And the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion, or heretical innovation and bigger and every bit is misguidance.

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

After the Battle of battle,

00:03:28--> 00:03:39

a while after the Battle of better the prophets of Allah, who already who was salam sends a group of companions 10 companions, he sends them in the direction of Mecca to

00:03:41--> 00:04:02

always stay updated as to what Quraish were up to. Because the Muslims were under threat from so many different directions, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam needed to stay updated with everything that was going on around so he sent a small group of the companions it schooled in the Arabic language, sorry, yeah.

00:04:03--> 00:04:28

Sorry, yeah. 10 companions on a mission to find out how things were in Mecca. So as they came to an area called Al header, which is very close to Mecca, around 100 kilometers to the north of Makkah. They were spotted by a tribe that was in a state of alliance with caliche.

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

They held a grudge against Muslims, they know who they are.

00:04:33--> 00:04:42

And a specific clan of them was called Benno Lohan. So they spotted these 10 companions, they chased them.

00:04:44--> 00:04:47

About 200 of them, and they caught

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

the 10 companions. The 10 companions took shelter or they took to the top of a hill to try and protect themselves but they were surrounded by the 200 people

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

from Ben Gurion

00:05:03--> 00:05:08

they offer them to save their lives if they were to surrender.

00:05:11--> 00:05:17

But the leader of this expedition Muslim expedition, awesome, give him a fair bit.

00:05:18--> 00:05:25

He says, I will not trust the word of someone who doesn't believe in Allah, someone who just believes in Allah.

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

That or the the metallic effort.

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

So he fought.

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

And they killed seven of them by shooting arrows.

00:05:38--> 00:05:50

Three of them remain empty. They decide to surrender after more emphatic or more word, and more emphasis and reassurance that their lives will be spared.

00:05:52--> 00:05:59

Among them was Kobe berguna, ID and even know Dafina and the third person

00:06:00--> 00:06:01

as they catch them,

00:06:03--> 00:06:23

they start tying them up. So the third person says, that's the beginning of them breaking their promise. I'm not gonna go with them. So he resists and he says, I want to die with my seven brothers who are already who were already martyred and he resists violently until they end up killing him.

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

Then they carry him no Dafina

00:06:28--> 00:06:44

and Habib, no Addy they carry them to Mecca and sell them because they were wanted in Makkah, because Olson, Habib, nobody killed a man from Quraysh and Hadith of no Allah

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

he had killed them, he had killed it, he killed him in the Battle of better.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

So the family of inheritance wanted

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

her obeyed by any price.

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

They had.

00:07:08--> 00:07:11

They had put some money on on his on his on his head.

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

So whenever they took the money and they surrender, or they submitted Hoban, ID to Quraysh to that specific family.

00:07:22--> 00:07:24

And it was an assured home

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

like a short term that we live in the sacred months where no one is supposed to engage in

00:07:32--> 00:07:40

any kind of war. And the Arabs were observing this this was one of the remains of the religion of Ibrahim and Ismail and he Marcela.

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

So they put him in captivity

00:07:46--> 00:07:52

until an ash Hubble Hallowmas are over. And then they would execute him.

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

When he was in captivity,

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

as the sacred months

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

have gone by,

00:08:05--> 00:08:15

he asked for a blade to clean himself groom himself. He wants to die if he is going to die, who wants to die in good shape, meet Allah in good shape.

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

So they give him a blade.

00:08:20--> 00:08:26

And one of the toddlers in the house, walks up to him and sits on his lap.

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

So he has the blade, and he has the toddler, the little child on his lap, the mother when she sees her boy,

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

in the possession of this man who's going to be killed maybe in a day or two, and the man has got a blade. she panics. He recognizes this and he says, You think I'm gonna kill the boy

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

Malcolm Tolle, Allah Inshallah, I'll never do that. I will never do that. Why?

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

Because you can't

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

help Islam. You can't support Islam,

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

with the

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

tools and the behaviors of the hypocrites.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

And the people have no morality.

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

Islam is not just a slogan.

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

Islam is not just a nationality. And then you know, use whatever means possible around you know, Islam is a way of life there are principles.

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

There are morals that we hold on to,

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

even in the most difficult situations.

00:09:36--> 00:09:51

We are tied up to a covenant and agreement with Allah subhanaw taala that we observe what he loves, which we call moral and we abstain from what he dislikes and abhors, and we call this immoral in Islam.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

So you can't help Islam with deception. You can't help Islam with lying

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

You can't help Islam or help the cause of Islam with cheating. You can't support Islam

00:10:09--> 00:10:16

with the morality of the foolish and the hypocrites with backbiting with slandering, you can't do that.

00:10:17--> 00:10:21

You can't do this. So Kobe, Kobe Bernardi being

00:10:24--> 00:10:38

mentored by Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has this boy, you know, this is an innocent child. And I'm not gonna do that. And no Muslim who truly believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala does this. But you know, the disbelievers

00:10:40--> 00:10:50

the devils among humanity, that you lie against the believers. And they accused them of these things falsely, and it's merely an act of projection.

00:10:51--> 00:11:06

It's an act of deflecting attention from their history, from their atrocities from their evil by turning the attention and the spotlight to the believers by creating the lies about them. And they still do it until today.

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

So they will not it doesn't do any harm to the child, he lets the child go.

00:11:16--> 00:11:26

And then they take him outside of Makkah, because it's the harem. So the secret months are over, but the sacred place, and how long have Maccha they don't kill people there.

00:11:27--> 00:11:33

So they their tradition is that they would take him outside of the boundaries of Mecca and killed him there.

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

So they crucify Him, they tie him up to a pole.

00:11:41--> 00:11:46

And before they do this, he says, I just want to pray to rock her before I die.

00:11:48--> 00:11:56

So they allow him to make although and pray to rock, and guess what he makes will talk quickly. And he praises to raka very swiftly.

00:11:58--> 00:12:06

And he turns to them, he says Wallahi I would love to extend my prayer and enjoy it.

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

But I don't want you to think that I fear death or that I fear you.

00:12:12--> 00:12:13

So he cuts it short.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

Then they crucify him.

00:12:17--> 00:12:23

And then they start cutting his body, one piece at a time to give him a painful death.

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

And he starts reciting some lines of poetry that he speaks that he says on the spot.

00:12:36--> 00:12:58

And he became famous, and they just have them as that. He says that these people have gathered against me because I follow Allah subhanaw taala and I obey the command of his prophets, Allah, Allah when he was 11 he says, I don't care. Then he says will us to obey the Hina octal or Muslim and Allah you were gencanna Allah He must lie. I don't care if I die as a muslim.

00:13:00--> 00:13:07

How do I die in what matter i In what manner I die. It doesn't make a difference as long as I die as someone who believes in Allah.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

What is to be moved in?

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

Lille I do with a cashew a

00:13:14--> 00:13:26

will that's to be moved in there. I do eat a cashew and one just in the in Allah Hema J, Mel J. And he says, I'm not going to show or display to my enemies, any sign of weakness or fear.

00:13:28--> 00:13:43

I am returning to my Lord, and he dies with dignity. They even tell him as they were cutting out his body. Would you wish that you were safe and intact with your family and Muhammad was in your place?

00:13:45--> 00:13:56

Would you be happy by that? He says, I would put my life for the sake of the prophets I send them to protect him even from the Poke of a thorn or the pain of a phone poking him.

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

He dies with dignity.

00:14:00--> 00:14:35

He doesn't beg for his safety. It doesn't beg for his life. He doesn't doesn't beg for a quick death. He turns himself to Allah. Why because he knows his life and his death is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala that's what a man offers the believers. That's what reading of the Quran living the Quran. That's why you pray Well, this is what praying this is what fasting This is what truly engaging with Islam does. When a person engages fully in in this religion, that's what it offers them.

00:14:36--> 00:14:52

And we know in Mecca before that began what the Allahu Allah was taken by OMA Ubuntu Calif. And he was tortured. He was stripped naked, and he was dragged in the heat in the scorching heat of the summer in Mecca.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And he was dragged throughout the streets of Makkah, and he would say ahead on ahead

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Worship Allah Allah. He never begged for his life.

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

He never begged for mercy.

00:15:09--> 00:15:30

Cabinda, not the same thing he never begged for mercy. And mabuya has never, never begged for mercy. The Muslims face their predicament and their trials with dignity and when their heads up because they know their life and their death is in the hands of Allah. And if something is written for them, it would come to them.

00:15:34--> 00:15:55

And the people have always had something called helpful for the oil. That was prior to Islam. And this was an agreement, a social agreement, a political agreement, to help anyone who's oppressed any one of the of the disadvantaged segments of society, who was mistreated by some of the elite, more like social justice.

00:15:57--> 00:16:02

None of the companions who were tortured said where is helpful football?

00:16:04--> 00:16:16

Why? Because they know that if Allah has written upon you to strive, if Allah has written upon you to go through pain, the new take it with dignity, no one can change that but Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:17--> 00:16:26

what em says comme la Hudlin Fela can Sharif Allahu Allah. And if Allah tries you with pain and hardship, no one can remove it but Allah

00:16:27--> 00:16:39

wa em Cisco be hired him for what other condition in Kadir And if Allah tries you and test you with ease and with blessings, then Allah subhanho wa Taala is able to do everything.

00:16:42--> 00:16:49

When the Muslims marched to Mecca in the year eight after Hadron to take it over, after Quraysh had betrayed the treaty.

00:16:51--> 00:17:09

And the Muslims have arrived in huge numbers and they surrounded Mecca. Abu Sufyan came to know about this, they were taking people of Quraysh were taken by surprise. Abu Sufyan the leader of Mecca, the most important person in Mecca, number one in Mecca and most likely in the Arabian Peninsula among the pagan Arabs.

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

He decides to go and meet the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and negotiate a good deal.

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

But he needs someone to get him into,

00:17:24--> 00:17:33

through the Muslim cap, the encampment of the Muslims into the area where the Prophet salallahu Salam was without being attacked by anyone.

00:17:35--> 00:17:47

So one of the companions Ibnu Amory Moosonee, takes Abu Sufian to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, as they will go as they were approaching the prophets, Allah and some of the companions will be the him.

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

One of those companions says this is about Soufiane. And if the Bananarama

00:17:56--> 00:18:05

they're approaching us they come in here. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said her had YouTube know what Abu Sufyan

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

and Islam

00:18:08--> 00:18:08

Allah Allah.

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

The prophets, Allah Islam said no, this is

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

abnormal and abuse of young Islam comes first.

00:18:20--> 00:18:28

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah Subhan Allah says in the Quran, Man Can you read well is that a fellow Allah him to Jamia?

00:18:29--> 00:18:37

He who wants dignity and honor than dignity and honor is the possession of Allah Himself. It belongs to Allah.

00:18:39--> 00:18:47

And Allah says when Allah he is actually Allah, so when he was meaning, And to Allah belong, dignity and honor

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

and to the messenger, and to the believers because Allah gives it to them.

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

So dignity is one of the most beautiful traits of Islam and a Muslim.

00:19:05--> 00:19:11

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Hadith lamber, he removed me and knew they left.

00:19:13--> 00:19:18

A believer is not allowed to humiliate himself or herself.

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

So if something is written upon you, something is written upon me something is written upon us. Let's take it with dignity.

00:19:29--> 00:19:38

Why? Because when there is La Ilaha in LA, in La Jolla in the heart, not for the sake of yourself, for the sake of la ilaha illallah never put your your head down.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

Never put your head down.

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

And there is an honor and dignity in Islam

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

is not necessarily tied up to being dominant and being in a position of power. These are the definitions that we have adopted blindly from non Muslim sources

00:20:00--> 00:20:18

And then we try to understand Islam. And we try to understand the Quran through the through these confused definitions. And that's part of our problem we say why doesn't Allah help the Muslims they believe or even when they are dying, even when they are persecuted.

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

Even when they are overpowered, they are always have the IZA they always have the dignity and they don't put their head down. Because dignity comes from embracing the truth

00:20:34--> 00:20:35

and not giving up on it.

00:20:38--> 00:20:44

Because it is an honor can only be given by Allah subhanaw taala but we confuse Israel with power.

00:20:45--> 00:20:55

And when we see things as and process things in the world as people who don't believe in Allah, when we process the world the same way they process it, we get confused.

00:20:58--> 00:21:11

We become confused just like they are and we misinterpret the Quran. And we start to have expectations about Allah that are not true. And we miss out on the truth is there is a feeling of Israel that cannot be broken.

00:21:13--> 00:21:27

The prophets also had it it Makkah and Medina, the companions of the Allahu Ana, when they were tortured, they had it in Mecca, and later on in Medina, even when they were killed, and even in some instances when they were defeated, they were still the uppermost.

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

But that's the language that can only be understood by a heart

00:21:33--> 00:22:12

that has favored the Quran that lives with the Quran that lives for Allah subhanho wa Taala that aligns everything in its life around Allah being the ultimate priority. This is a language that cannot be understood by a heart that is attached to this life. And these are things that we need to understand Islam is not an empty slogan. The Quran Quran is not meaningless words. The Quran is not a nationality that just holds us together under the name, but the reality of it, the truth of it, the principles of it, the lifestyle of it, the beliefs of it.

00:22:14--> 00:22:26

And Muslims pay the price today because we don't live up to the standards of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accord only harder was tougher for loyalty welcome.

00:22:36--> 00:22:45

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala is often more salient so he didn't know Muhammad in minor Ernie was happy to be here in Orlando

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

and has under the bus the Bahama along with Johanna says for him the home was in him ledger to be him all about it and what talks to her to be him will be available for in another little masliah TV will do him.

00:23:00--> 00:23:11

Abdullah who in new the Luminesce has an imbecile he was talking about some people who were associated who had power in his time who had power but

00:23:12--> 00:23:23

and they were people of Buddha and people of innovation people who change the religion. And they sought to undermine Islam from inside he said these people even in their luxury, and in their

00:23:27--> 00:23:33

their official convoys and the respect and the the aura around them.

00:23:34--> 00:23:41

You will find that the humiliation of this obeying Allah is apparent on their face.

00:23:42--> 00:23:51

Allah refuses, but to bring humiliation to those who disobey Him. This is something that can only be seen with the light of Amen.

00:23:52--> 00:24:32

So these people were powerful in society, they were dominant. They were rich, they were resourceful yet and has an embassy could see in their face, the humiliation and the the loneliness of their life and of their heart. Because they disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala so he took the job a year just look at the dignity of a believer. So why not just like the Muslims today are learning from other minorities who used manipulation, who used victimhood and immoral tactics to gain the upper hand in society and in the legal system. Muslims are looking at that and say we can do the same.

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

You have higher standards.

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

We have higher standards, we don't use manipulation.

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

We follow the way of the Prophet sallallahu he was setting them

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

and we are supposed to deal with whatever Allah brings into our life with dignity. So Aw, Jubail, the great of a greatest of a taboo in the one who started with them no adverse loving Allah for Allah

00:25:01--> 00:25:07

When he was brought before head judge to be killed, had judge wanted to kill him a judge of no use of photography

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

so he says to him, what's your name? He says, say look, no job. I'm Sade. Ibnu Jubail. He says, candidates

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

and retirees have no Crusade.

00:25:26--> 00:25:35

Crusade means happy. He says no, you're miserable. If no Jubail Minh is someone who is intact, he says, No, you are the miserable son of the broken.

00:25:37--> 00:25:45

He says my my mother named me she knows my name. He could have just said Yes, Your Majesty. Right, just like most people do.

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

Then he said to him

00:25:52--> 00:26:09

if Tomita taka India party, look, he says, Choose your death. which way you want to die because I'm going to kill you now. I left on until enough sick for in the mineralogical precise, will law him up at 1022, Latin in Latin Illa Allah Allah Who shuffle Amina Yamato Yama.

00:26:10--> 00:26:19

He said, no you choose for yourself because Allah, you will meet justice with Allah, you kill me in a way Allah will kill you in a worse, more painful way on the Day of Judgment.

00:26:20--> 00:26:28

That's the dignity of a believer. He says in the genome Becca iliamna. Allah judge says to him, I'm going to send you now to the hellfire.

00:26:30--> 00:26:39

He says to him, Well, Allah Hello, Adam, one another beauty kind of habit. He says, had I known that the Hellfire is in your hand I would have worshipped to you.
