00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala

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

nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa

00:00:15--> 00:01:01

ala Medina wa we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless him, and may He bless them all and may He bless his entire household May he bless all those who have struggled and strived to protect the deen to learn it, to practice upon it to convey to others in a way that it has come to us. Allah He My beloved brothers and sisters, it is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve the knowledge of Islam, because the difference between us and the others is we do not accept here say, we need that which is sound knowledge, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make

00:01:01--> 00:01:11

us from amongst those who can sacrifice at least a little bit of time to learn the deen and we ask Allah subhana wa attallah to accept it from us and to grant us every form of goodness.

00:01:12--> 00:01:30

We saw the greatest migration or hegemon in history. In fact, it is the only one worth making mention of and by the arrival of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Cuba, a new chapter commenced, what was the chapter.

00:01:31--> 00:02:16

Now revelation had became known as Al Madani, that which was revealed in Madina munawwara that which was revealed after the Hydra, up to that stage revelation was known as a key. If you look at the surah of the Quran, it says Surah so and so machiya surah so and so madonia Did you know that the most of the sutras were already revealed in muckety muck of Rama, only 23 sutras were revealed in Madina munawwara although some of them were long like surah baqarah and Allah amaran and so on, which were revealed in Madina munawwara they were quite long, but the number of students the bulk of them were already revealed in Makkah to McCullough and they were discussing the topic of tawheed,

00:02:16--> 00:02:59

meaning the oneness of Allah protecting ourselves from associating any form of deity with Allah subhanho wa Taala any God with Allah. So that was the core subject that was discussed in the verses that were revealed in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, also, as we've explained before, what is known as Imani yet, belief, belief in life after death, belief in heaven and hell, Jenna and jahannam, and so on, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us strings and to make us from those who are solid believers. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those who appreciate the fact that we are the members of the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, the hegira calendar had come in.

00:03:00--> 00:03:52

Now, one might ask a question, did they start counting from that point? The answer is no at the time of Omar Abdullah Allahu anhu, later on, after the time of Ababa Casa de for the long run. When Rama brought the Allahu anhu started recording dates. He decided that it should be commenced from the hijra. And this was the decision made by the Allahu anhu. Now we learned yesterday that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam arrived in Cuba on the 12th of an hour. And it was a Monday according to some of the narrations. And according to the Christian calendar, it was approximately the 20th of September 6 20 to add approximately the 20th of September 6 20 to add. So the calendar has started

00:03:52--> 00:04:39

with the first month being Muharram. Why was that? Why wasn't the first month it'll be an hour or a BSN. The answer to that some of the scholars have made mention of a beautiful response, even if natural as Kalani has spoken about it, that at that time, the treaty or the pledge of Aqaba, the second one was signed in the month of religion. And the first hijra commenced thereafter, the moon they saw after that was the moon of Muharram. So they will start counting from Muharram. So Muharram was when the hegira had commenced as a whole, not necessarily just the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But all his companions at large, they had started and by that time, the moon that was

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

cited was the moon of Muharram. So the calendar started from the first of Muharram and this is why we have the month in that particular order in our calendar, which is the hegira calendar. So this is also a point as we said of great importance The reason why I took some time to mention this is because it is relevant to us.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

on a day to day basis, and we use this calendar May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant our strength when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got to Koba as we made mention, he had stayed in the house of alcoholism, even ebenen hidden according to one narration, that was the pronunciation of the name. And this man was one of the leaders of Bahama. He'd been out in Cuba. A few days later alley, viola and who arrived in Cuba, and this is where he met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember, he was left behind in order to give whatever Amana and trust was entrusted to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by the mushriks of Mecca. And this is why he stayed back and he gave

00:05:43--> 00:06:24

all those belongings to the people whom they belonged to, and then he proceeded to Al Madina, munawwara and he arrived in Cuba, where he met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam two or three nights after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had arrived. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved the answer, the answer of the helpers, the people of Medina munawwara, those who open their homes and those who loved those who came to them. Today, when we have a visitor in our home, sometimes depending on who exactly it is, we might feel for a while that you know, this person is welcome, we are excited. And two, three days later, it becomes a bit of a burden. Lukla becomes a

00:06:24--> 00:06:48

burden. Sometimes from day one, it's a burden already, especially with the hospitality of today. But there Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not just him who was welcome. Every single one of the believers, the common factor was you utter La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so do we. You are welcome into our homes. And do you know what they did? Subhana Allah.

00:06:49--> 00:07:09

At some stage, they opened their doors, they shared their wealth, they shared their property, they shared absolutely everything and they became known as brothers. Obviously, this was a little bit later on when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam A few days after that arrived in Al Madina, munawwara from Cuba, which was in the outskirts of Medina at the time.

00:07:10--> 00:07:20

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved the answer so much, that in Sahih al Bukhari, there is a hadith which says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said, Nolan hegira,

00:07:21--> 00:08:01

Amina Lanza. If it wasn't for the Hydra, I would have been a member of the unsolved, so panela which means these people, they open their arms to Islam and like the people of Quraysh, who had harmed who had caused lots of problems and so on. All this was also for a reason known to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the hikma of Allah subhanho wa Taala is known to him. Sometimes we might pick up a point or two, but in most cases, we wouldn't know what was the reasoning of Allah subhanho wa Taala but we surrender to it, know it or not. So this was one of the narrations mentioned by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Another point that is worth noting, how many days did the Prophet

00:08:01--> 00:08:43

salallahu alayhi wasallam spend in Cuba, there are some narrations which make mention of a minimum of four days, whereas there is a maximum of 19 days, the majority of narration say approximately two weeks, so approximately two weeks. What happened in Cuba was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bhoot MSG that would have taken a little bit of time although it was not as we ended of yesterday, if you remember the question I asked right at the end, about the beautification of the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala at that time, the hearts of those who went to the house of Allah were beautified, but the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala was simple. Nowadays, the houses of Allah

00:08:43--> 00:09:25

subhanho wa Taala have beautified our hearts as beautiful. That's the question I ended with yesterday. And Subhana Allah it is a potent question because it is the beautification of the heart. That is achieved through the closeness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that will result in the solution to all our problems and difficulties and it will drive us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us really spend some time with our own hearts the condition of my heart today the difficulties everyone's worried about the other man he is like this He is like that in the process we forget about what we are and what amount of soup we are in. May

00:09:25--> 00:09:40

Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us and grant us goodness. So Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam built this Masjid known as Mr Kuba and Allah has praised this Masjid in the Quran. And Allah calls it lemis Jaden

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

toccoa. That Masjid which was built upon piety, the reason for it to be built, those who helped in it and why it was built was piety, to bring people closer to Allah to be a place where they could meet where they could discuss their issues where they could learn where they could disseminate them.

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

knowledge they had,

00:10:02--> 00:10:38

where they could prepare for any attack of the enemy where they could prepare to retaliate. And at the same time, the way they could pray their Salah where they could meet the messenger where they could learn more of the Quran and the sayings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam this was the role of the masjid. And this is why was Cuba was built and it became a base automatically. and thereafter, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam sent a message to Madina munawwara to the answer, that I now intend to come to El Medina, and then they sent delegations to pick him up basically, from amongst them, some of their leaders and some of their people and a lot of them came with some

00:10:38--> 00:11:07

weapons because they were worried. They had encircled Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they did not want the enemy from Quraysh or the enemy from amongst the tribes who may be jealous around to harm Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so for that reason, they had come in and circled him, and they took him to Panama, and this was a Friday, on a Friday It is reported Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam departed and he started going from Cuba, to Madina, munawwara

00:11:08--> 00:11:54

and on the way as some of the narrations make mentioned, it was the time of Juma now as I did Noora rhodiola when he before Juma was made compulsory already used to gather the Muslims on a Friday, he already used to gather the Muslims on a Friday and they used to talk they used to engage in a Baba and so on, read their Salah, and thereafter when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was proceeding from Cuba, going to Madina, munawwara, the time of that Salah of Juma came into place, and he stopped at a place known as Ben wasallam even out and today, if you look at the just outside must've Cuba, there is a little message known as masjidul. Juma some narrations say that that is where the

00:11:54--> 00:12:34

Juma took place. One of the hot buzz of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some narration say that was his first hook. But the first lecture ever delivered to the unsolved and the Maha jurien was at that particular point, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but the wording of it is very interesting. He says, Oh people, he warns them about Allah subhanho wa Taala. And about the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala the importance to take the leader where he says, You were like a flock without a shepherd and Allah gave you the shepherd and he is going to question you, what did you do? Did you follow or did you lead yourself astray? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us follow us.

00:12:35--> 00:12:43

And then he says, fear the punishment of help, even if it means by a small piece of a date,

00:12:44--> 00:12:53

giving a charity, buy a piece of a date, not even a full date, a piece of a date. And if you cannot give that amount of a charity, then at least by a good word.

00:12:55--> 00:13:34

mentioned good words. And this shows us that your sadaqa and the charities that you give and I give, they have a role to play in saving myself and yourselves from hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us many people take it for granted. The one random $1 one realize that we give in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala that perhaps could be a means of our Savior from the fire of jahannam. So do not belittle even a single donation in the right cause towards the poor and the needy and the cause of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us sustenance, and may He make us content may he make us people who are happy at all times. So this was a photo and the

00:13:34--> 00:14:15

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then proceeded and progressed to Al Madina, munawwara and then Subhana Allah, just trying to picture the excitement. The people were so happy their messenger was coming. They had accepted Islam already. The bulk of them had accepted Islam already. They had heard so much about this man, first time meeting him. Imagine you hear so much about someone and they've really taught you so much and now you're going to see them for the first time. So panela the excitement this was an Obi of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the highest of creation, and he is moving Subhana Allah, the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala are at peace with him, starting from the

00:14:15--> 00:14:44

clouds, to the trees, to the stones to the animals, everything at peace with him, and he is moving with this delegation of people. And at that particular time, Subhanallah people used to climb on their roofs in order to look at what was going on. So you find the women climbing up on their roofs and the men had rushed out the way the children had rushed out and there is an aeration in Sahih Muslim which makes mention of the young boys and the youngsters of Madina, munawwara chanting a few words,

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

the chanting of the words, yeah, mohammedia rasulillah jasola Allah hiya Mohammed. These words and many other words are made mention of in the books of Hadith. And as for the books of history, and I explained yesterday the difference between the books of history and the book

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

Heidi, the books of history make mention of a song that we would all have heard being sung by some of the young boys and girls of Madina, munawwara as Salah, Alberto, Allah in Armenia, Tila de wacha, schuco, Elena, and so on the beautiful words, these are made mention of not in the books of Hadith, but in the books of Sierra in the books of history, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us indeed, it was the dawning of a new time in the history, not only of Madina munawwara but of the Muslims at large Subhan Allah, and they were so happy everyone wanting to get a glimpse, it is reported Subhana Allah that even from amongst the Jewish tribes, the birth there were three Jewish

00:15:41--> 00:16:19

tribes been Okinawa, Burnaby and Vancouver, they were around Madina munawwara they had come from the Roman Empire and from the Byzantine Empire, they had come down south, and they will also inform that a messenger would come in an area described exactly as Al Madina, munawwara. And this is why they camped around them, they stayed there, they came, and they heard his words, some of them tested him by asking him questions, and many of their leaders accepted Islam. Many of the people when they heard from amongst the Jewish people, many of them when they heard they accepted Islam, but obviously the bulk of the,

00:16:21--> 00:16:59

the bulk of the public of the Jews, they were waiting, they were very, very skeptical. They did not want to give him to an Arab. And they said, these are the children of Israel. We are the children of his half. Again, it went back to the ignorance and arrogance of the people of Quraysh. They did not want to accept Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because Abu Jamal says that you see the family of this Abu Talib, they have had virtue of this and that and that and the zum zum. And now Prophethood we are not going to take it, we don't want it we cannot give leadership to his child or his family. So Pamela, and this is what made them deny.

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

And this is the exact point that made the Jewish people deny Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet they were waiting for him and they had settled in Madina, munawwara because of that Subhanallah and as I told you, some of their leaders in fact, a lot of their leaders had accepted Islam.

00:17:18--> 00:17:53

And from amongst them was Abdullah Abu Salah mo de la and we made mention of his story, and I think we should repeat it he was from amongst those he says, When I saw the messenger as he came into Madina, munawwara I was busy with doing something in my little garden, I left everything in Iran, I saw his face, obviously he got a glimpse of it. And he says, As soon as I saw him, I knew this is not the face of Allah Subhana Allah. And he says, Then I heard some of his words and from amongst the first words that were uttered by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which were heard by Abdullah Abu salam, something Subhan Allah

00:17:55--> 00:18:38

or yohannes of Shu Salah, Mo Tama or coo or hammer was Sol Lubin, Laila Sunni, Sania that Hulu Jana Tara B combi salam, if you notice the rhyming of it, obviously, this is one of the native narrations of the Hadith. There are other wordings but quite similar in meaning, oh, people, spread the Salam and the peace live peacefully the Salaam it has a very deep meaning. It doesn't just mean Peace be upon you, as in just a greeting, empty of any thought but it actually means peace be upon you from any harm from me, I won't harm you. So Peace be upon you. So when we say Assalamu alaykum we mean? I'm not going to harm your peace be upon you, not only from me, but from all the creatures of Allah

00:18:38--> 00:19:00

subhanho wa Taala May you be a total peace. Imagine a DA we are praying whenever we meet one another for one another. What greater greeting can there be? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who don't just shorten such a powerful prayer and who can actually say it properly when we utter it, and May Allah accept it from us. So spread this Salaam

00:19:02--> 00:19:28

and feed the people feed not only the poor, but feed others and you will find that the hearts Come closer. You know when you feed people Subhana Allah, a lot of the times what happens? It is a social event that brings people together it makes you discuss things it brings you closer and so on. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us hospitality to make us hospitable people and to make us appreciative of those who are hospitable towards us and hamdulillah.

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

So he says up to feed, even the poor, obviously, how many of us would be ready to invite a wealthy man or a popular man to our homes? What about the poor person who's on your streets? Have you ever thought of giving him food Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors while still our hammer and fulfill your relations fulfill the link in the tie and the rights of your family members and pray at night when everyone is asleep, because that is the most sincere when we

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

Pray in, everybody's missed. Yes, there is sincerity. But perhaps we are worried about this man watching that man watching. So the sincerity levels might not be that high. But when you are praying at night when nobody's watching you, it's between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our doors, May He grant us sincerity in our deeds, then the Hadees ended by saying, if you do that, you will enter the paradise of Europe but with great ease, you will enter Paradise with great ease of the lightness Alam says he came, and he declared his acceptance of the Shahada. He declared that this man is indeed a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know

00:20:38--> 00:21:16

the story I made mention of where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he found that this man was one of the leaders of the Jewish tribes, he told him, what about your people? He said, My people will not accept they said no, let us call them. So the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told him to go behind the wall, called the people and asked him who is this man in your midst? They said, he is a leader, a son of a leader and honest man, son of an honest man, righteous person, son of a righteous he is this and that and they praise Him. So then they were told what if he has accepted Islam? And they said it is impossible he won't do that. So then when Nabi sallallahu Sallam called

00:21:16--> 00:21:59

him from behind the wall and asked him or in fact, he came out and declared his Shahada, that I bear witness that Allah is one and you are indeed the final messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They changed their tune instantly, and they said, he is a liar, son of a liar. He was a traitor, son of a traitor. He's a cheater, son of a cheat and so on. But Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from those whom when clear cut signs come in front of us, we still don't surrender. Allahu Akbar. May Allah open our doors. So this was the beauty as NaVi salatu salam arrived in Al Madina, munawwara and Subhan. Allah, a beautiful day, but everyone wanted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to come

00:21:59--> 00:22:40

to his place, obviously. How did the rest of the Mahajan into the homes of the unserved? How did the rest of the people who made hegira into the homes of the people of Madina? munawwara very simple, by what is known as poorer, picking lots, which means they would pick the name of the person, and that particular name would go to the next I'm sorry, who is waiting in line? So they picked the name. Nobody favored anyone and nobody chose I will go with him. He will come with me. No, it was picked out. And Subhana Allah, more like lots were drawn for that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us exception, meaning May he accept us.

00:22:41--> 00:23:19

Today, if we want to solve a problem, it is also a way to actually put all your names in the hat and pick out one, there's no harm in that, because it would resolve your matter. And it means nobody took anyone's chance, meaning anyone side, I'm just thinking of something. And that made me make a slip of the tongue. That sometimes if people want to cheat, they write their name 20 times. So everybody thinks that there's 20 names if they're not realizing there's only one name 20 times when you pick it out, anyone picks it up, the same name comes that's the type of cheating people in our time would engage in. But at that time, so Hannah love, it was just now with Muhammad sallallahu

00:23:19--> 00:24:04

alayhi wa sallam, where would he go? So the narrations there are two narrations one makes mention of the fact that he had stopped where his camel had stopped, and he asked whose home is the closest, and Abu Balon sorry for the Allahu anhu says, here's my home and here's each go. So he said, this is where I will stop the other narration which is very close in meaning he he was off his camel. And as they said, jasola come to my home, come to my home and so on. He said, Let my camel go, it has been instructed, and it will stop wherever I should be. So the camera went a little bit and paused and sat down at a specific place and the closest door was the door of Abu Bonanza de la one. So this is

00:24:04--> 00:24:18

how the decision was made. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then went into the house of Abu al Ansari, he had a house which had two floors, meaning it was a double storey home, and at that time, the second floor

00:24:19--> 00:25:00

there was no concrete between the two floors. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had entered the the base, meaning that the bottom floor and Abu Bonanza came with his family. And he says O Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I cannot allow you to be here on this ground floor. When I am going to be above you, I'm going to be above you. I can't allow that to happen. You need to go above us. Because as it is, you are higher. It is a sign of respect. We would like to be below you be above Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told him no, I would prefer to be below because people would come to meet me and it would be better for the

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

Family members. Instead of people coming past the women and everyone as they come up to see me, rather I be at the bottom, and you can be at the top without any interference. And it is reported that they were so well behaved, meaning the children and the family, they will also well behaved, that they did not want to walk in a way that would disturb Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Not only that,

00:25:27--> 00:26:01

it is reported that one of the urns that were holding water happened to fall and break they on the top floor. And immediately they got up and they tried to wipe it out so fast because they didn't want the water to trickle down and to harm Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So this narration is also made mention of in the books of Hadith as well as in the books of history and Sierra, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those who can respect the level of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and at the same time, respect the level of Allah because Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw

00:26:02--> 00:26:45

taala are those who have inherited from the MBR they will have knowledge of sound knowledge, they will teach and they will relay the message of the messengers and the treatment that people give the scholars of Islam will be similar to the treatment that people gave the messengers because the message is one and this is why you find societies break up into exactly the same groups of people, you have hypocrites. You have people who will support the whole Ummah, you have people who will go down in history as those who crumbled communities because they fought Allah Ma and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala let us die in a condition that we are on the right side. Remember, not every time

00:26:45--> 00:27:08

should things happen the way you want them to happen. They should always happen the way Allah and His Rasool want them to happen. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us goodness, lo occur. So this was the house of Abu Bakr Ansari of the Allahu anhu beautiful place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed, and in no time something else happened.

00:27:09--> 00:27:54

There was need for a place for the Muslims to gather because up to that stage for a day or two, they had gathered for Salah wherever they were, they had read Salah when the Salah time had come in, they read it wherever they were, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose a place where the masjid would be built. And again, there is a narration of his camel being released and sitting at a specific place. That is also a narration in the books of history. So here we have a situation where a piece of land is located. And now they are looking for the owners of this land who happened to be two young orphans, from banana jar to orphans, little boys, meaning young men came in and these

00:27:54--> 00:28:03

boys, they have said look, we can give this just for free meaning we can give it as a gift this land, although they didn't have anything.

00:28:05--> 00:28:46

But Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said no, we will pay for it. And he paid for it and he gave them their price. and thereafter, the place was clear because there were trees there it was like an orchard and they had cleared the trees and so on. And they have put a little bit of a demarcation to demarcate that this is going to be the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and mosquito nabawi. The original structure was very small, very simple, so Han Allah and it did not take them too long to get it ready for your information, no carpet, no marble, no tiles, no concrete, all they did was clear it and that's it. So when they made such that they had marks on their knees, marks on

00:28:46--> 00:29:28

their toes, marks on their hands and marks on their forehead SubhanAllah. And what type of a roof did they have, they had a roof made up of the stumps of the palm tree and a little bit of the the branches of the palm tree that were all put together and crushed together. And they had had that and that would be the roof at that particular time. This is how it was how high was it? It was not very high such that a young boy if he had to put his hand up, he would be able to touch the roof. He would be able to touch what we would term the ceiling. So it was not very high. And right next to it with it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had instructed the building of two rooms for his

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

wives now, so they've been designed out of the Allaha. She was the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and he had married Ayesha rhodiola and her before hegira. And now after hegira after some time when they finally lived together that was her home for gelato, Asia as a de carro de la vida. And that is the home where ultimately Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam passed away and that is where he is very today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. So these houses were built very low.

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

If you had a youngster stand up, he could actually feel the top. This is how the books have made mention of it. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they were building this Masjid, they had a habit, he was so excited because they had peace for the first time they had peace. Imagine the gift of peace and security is one of the biggest gifts you can have. And you don't realize it until you don't have it. Or you only realize it if you have not had it in the past, and now you have it. So the Muslims were so happy. They were chanting they're as they're working, taking the bricks and making them and any Sahabi who knew anything about building there was some who had come from afar

00:30:43--> 00:31:23

who were experts in mixing the the, the sand and so on, and making the clay they were called in and they were helping Subhana Allah, he made use of all the experts of building and at that particular time, they were also chanting, they had this habit of chanting a few little poems as they worked up to today. Sometimes you notice people who work very hard, they chant something, they say a few words, just to make it light. Let's hope that these words are good that time they will always good. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. So these words made mention of in Sahih al Bukhari, Allahu Allah insha Allah, Akira from Sunil ansara well mahadji Allah, O Allah, there is no life

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

besides the life of the

00:31:25--> 00:32:11

Yala this life is nothing the life of the earth here is what is important. And the DA is so Oh Allah help the answer and help them oh hi Julian help those who are from Medina, who are the helpers and help those who have migrated all the way from Makkah and come to Al Madina. munawwara This is just one of the statements that they were uttering. Now, once they were building this Masjid, before the masjid was completed, there was the death of one of the Sahaba of the alarm, Who was he? His name was added new surah of the Allah and he passed away before the completion of the building of Al Masjid nabawi he had met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Medina, remember, he was from

00:32:11--> 00:32:58

amongst those first ones who had pledged with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once, twice, thrice. And then they came to Al Madina, munawwara and he passed away look at what Allah Subhana Allah had created him for to support the course. So Panama, so he had passed away. Another person who passed away as well, was mamora even agenda. He was a person who had who was from muckety muck karma. He had fallen very ill before he could make the hero. So he told his relatives look, take me out I want to make hegira because the Prophet has instructed us to make hijra, although I am very sick, and he passed away in him on the outskirts of Mecca, Toluca, Rama and verses were revealed in

00:32:58--> 00:33:14

order to show the status of those who passed away whilst on the journey. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus ormai fujimi at muhajir on a llama, he was Sunni.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

Joe

00:33:23--> 00:33:36

whosoever has come out of their homes intending the hijra, and then they pass away, the reward is written with Allah subhanho wa Taala. They will get the full reward of it Subhana Allah, He was also one of those who passed away.

00:33:37--> 00:34:19

Another member who was a senior member of the unser, who had passed away one of the 12, who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had chosen to look after the people of Medina, between the pledge and the hijab, his name was al bara ebina mahalo. And this are the Allahu anhu he passed away in the month of suffering just before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had entered Oba this man had passed away, so he did not see Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam post he dropped, but he had already met him before the hegira he was so happy May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, also, who passed away the men whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed at his house in Cuba and

00:34:19--> 00:35:00

consume a bin Laden or consume even hidden and hidden, this men are the Allahu anhu he passed away as well. Very, very soon after that, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had come into al Madina, munawwara now there is a very interesting that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam made in Medina, Medina, the weather is different from Mecca, totally different. The cold is severe, the heat is also severe, and the cold has in it or it used to have in it a sickness and the disease known as Hama, Hama of Medina, this coma yesterday. In fact, it was very common, and it used to kill a lot of people every year. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told about

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

It, these are the tough conditions of Madina. munawwara Do you know what the Hadees says to us?

00:35:07--> 00:35:26

Man sobre la hora de however Dr. de la Jana, whoever can be a patient upon the heat and the code of Medina, Allah will grant them gentlemen. So don't complain of the weather. You go there, it was very hot. Hang on just hamdulillah we are in the blessed place. That is what's important. Whether it's hot or cold is besides the point Subhana Allah.

00:35:28--> 00:36:06

You know, I sit and I think of people. May Allah protect us for sports, what would they do? They would buy their tickets well in advance, they would go for the whole season. And they would go to Europe, even in the hottest, even if they happen to have been the longest, but they will still go. And to them. They went for a purpose to kick a ball or to watch people kicking a ball to throw a little piece and to watch people throwing a discus and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, we have the dean, when we go to the holy lands, never ever complained about the weather. May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us there again and again. Who knows perhaps in the heat of the moment

00:36:06--> 00:36:45

or the cold of Medina, that might be the moment of acceptance of your da and you might be a person who is granted gentleness because of that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us. So he made the dua he says Allah Houma Habib Elena Medina, kobina macatawa shed or Allah make us love Medina as much as we love maka, maka is your birthplace we all know the birthplace you always go back there. Some people marry and they travel, but their hearts are still stuck somewhere where they were born and when they go back there everything seems to be greeting them. You see why? Because you look at this familiar look at that familiar Mashallah. See all the smiles I see there are some Jama is that

00:36:45--> 00:37:24

we have here as well Mashallah some sons in law perhaps that we have here. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, believe me, it's a happy moment to go and see your home once again. So the hearts were connected to Russia to the birthplace of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which was Mecca. So now he's making a dua or Allah, grant us the love of Medina as we love Makkah and even more Subhana Allah and that love has become even more so than Allah. In terms of spirituality, the Salah, and the place which is most sacred is the Haram in Makkah without a doubt. Immediately after that the Haram in Medina without a doubt, immediately after that the Haram in Jerusalem without a

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

doubt, that brings me to a point when the mastic was built, which way was the Qibla?

00:37:29--> 00:38:12

Interesting question. It was facing Jerusalem, we as muslimeen initially were instructed to face Jerusalem in order to create uniformity when we pray. That was, the reason why we have we face a specific direction is for uniformity. We don't worship any stones or any people and so on. But it is to create uniformity, no rich man must come and say, hang on, face it towards my house, or the other one says, You know what, I am going to put something here You must face it in this direction. Or I don't like this building this way. Put it this way. No, no one has a say it's the house of Allah. He decides which way it faces. So he decided at that time, it must face Jerusalem. That was the house

00:38:12--> 00:38:17

of Allah subhanho wa Taala that was built by Ibrahim Alayhi. Salatu was Salam as well.

00:38:18--> 00:39:03

In Jerusalem, you find most people axon, so we used to face in that direction. Now. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this throughout the continuation of the draft. He says, What's the hate? ha Oh Allah, make it pure for us to live in. This Madina. munawwara purify it. Yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala. From what this disease that is in it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, one call from Maha. Allah, will Joshua Allah take this disease that comes in it every year, and place it outside Madina munawwara in a place known as Java, and it's reported that from that time, the sickness was gone. It disappeared. People did not get sick with that family yesterday

00:39:03--> 00:39:37

thereafter. They didn't. This was a miracle of the miracle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he made a dua and did this disease, this sickness, this influenza or flu, whatever it was, which used to take the lives of so many people every year, it stopped and it was gone out. And it went into a specific place known as Jaffa according to the narrations in Sahih al Bukhari and then he made another two Baraka nafeesa he has one would do or Allah grant us Baraka in the sustenance that is achieved here in Madina munawwara

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

the wording of the DA is grant us Baraka in the measurement and in the handfuls that we given take SAR is a measurement, it is actually a measurement where they used to measure when they used to give and take some of the flour and the wheat and so on. And the mud when they used to give some other items they used to measure it with their hands. So yeah, Allah put Baraka in it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Voila, Hi, my beloved brothers and sisters, I need to tell you something that you can bear witness regarding

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

to see the date.

00:40:09--> 00:40:52

You can have dates from anywhere in the world, but pick up a date from Madina munawwara it has a different taste in it. Do you bear witness? Subhan Allah, you can pick up a date from anywhere in the world. You can tell this is a Kalahari date. This is another date from elsewhere. This is an Algerian date. You can tell it and believe me, the date of Madina munawwara it has a totally different taste to it and a sweetness in it. Perhaps it is this job of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that has granted it such Baraka because this was included in the do I mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, the he job was an instruction of Allah

00:40:52--> 00:41:23

Subhana Allah to Allah. So everyone was instructed to fulfill the hedger, whoever Didn't they were sinful. The only people who are not sinful were those who are unable, either because they were blocked, they were stopped or they didn't have the means and so on. But if people were able to fulfill the hijra, and they did not, they were sinful. So the hegira was for it was compulsory upon all the bulk of the people had actually made hegira In fact, at some stage when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:41:24--> 00:42:08

had settled down in Al Madina, munawwara he sent Subhana Allah zaidan Harris and Abu raffia to Makkah to collect the rest of his and Abubakar, acidic of Allah and His families. So who came all together? Fatima, the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and his other daughter on consume. And soda the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam event is Mr. de la Anna. Iman, the second mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we made mention of her at the beginning of these episodes. When we spoke about the woman who looked after Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. By this time she was married to say dibny haritha zaidan haritha was the one who went to go and collect them. And I think

00:42:08--> 00:42:18

I made mention of this incident that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam said, Whoever wants to marry a woman from Paradise should marry a man and they didn't marry her, married her.

00:42:19--> 00:43:00

He was as fair as anything in complexion, and she was dark in complexion being from Africa, and he did not even doubt the minute Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever wants to marry a woman from Paradise should marry a man he married her and they had a blessed child, Osama bin Zayed who was born just before the hegira and he had also been brought into Madina munawwara together with his mother, Eamon and the sama bin Zayed. As for Xena, the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. She was married to a man known as a blouse of Nova beer. He did not accept Islam and he stopped his daughter from going through the hegira. So she was from amongst those who was excused at that

00:43:00--> 00:43:05

particular time. Together with them the family of Abu Bakar a study for the love and

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

romance of the Allahu anhu the wife of Abu Bakr, Siddiq

00:43:11--> 00:44:00

Chateau de la Juana, the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, Asma Binti Abu Bakr, who was the wife of a Zuberi vanilla one of the allow and and this summer she was pregnant. And when she came into Madina, munawwara she delivered a child, whose name was Abdullah happens to be the son of is available or one of the 11 this men remember this name Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, the grandchild of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, or the Allahu anhu and the son of a Zubaydah, a worm, the son of a smart backer, he was the first to be born from amongst the Mahajan after the hijra. Amazing. So this was the first child of the Mahajan born in Madina munawwara May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us blessing Allah

00:44:00--> 00:44:23

He, it is the city of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and indeed it is a very, very blessed city. We can feel it from the outskirts as we are drawing near the calmness, the serenity, this is just the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these were the people who had come through and Abdullah the son of Abu Bakr, Siddiq de la mano had also come through.

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

What had happened is, the masjid was now built, the people were settling in. They were a few conditions around in Medina to munawwara. Perhaps we will divulge too much meaning we will expand on it tomorrow, by the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But today we want to make mention of the history of Amazon. Because Amazon is the call which is called to the prayer. They used to get together for the time of prayer and they set to discuss with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what should we do to remind the people it's prayer time. So some people suggested let us raise a flag when it's prayer time.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

And then they said, No, we don't want to do that. For whatever reason, and perhaps this flag, it's not one of our ways of doing things.

00:45:09--> 00:45:51

Then some of them suggested, okay, let's light a fire. So the Smoke will go around and we will be able to let the people know that this is now the time of Salah. they disagreed with that as well. We don't like fires, then they said, okay, let us blow on in a bugle. They said No, we won't blow a bugle because that is the way of the non believers. Then they said, Okay, why don't we hit on a bell or we ring a bell Subhanallah then they said no, that is the Christian way of calling towards prayer. So we won't do that. And one of them had suggested that why don't we call the people we just call them so Abdullah Al Ansari was one of those who used to call the people for Salah but with no

00:45:51--> 00:46:00

specific wording. He just used to go out at the time of salah and remind the people come for Salah come for salah and so on Salah salah and they would call the people through

00:46:02--> 00:46:11

and later on this was known as the sweep that we was after the event when we go out and we tell people come Come let's go for Salah Salah that is a tsunami of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:46:12--> 00:46:50

However this man Abdullah bin is a that I'm sorry about the Allahu anhu he saw a dream. Just within a few days he saw a dream. And in the dream, a man came to him and told him Why don't you utter these words and taught him that as an exactly as we know it today. Allah is the Greatest I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger. He's worshiping come for success for Salah come for success. Allah is definitely the greatest there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. These are the words of the call to prayer. So when he got up, he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he told

00:46:50--> 00:47:01

him the dream. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him in your house. Indeed it is a true dream. I've already been given revelation with these exact words.

00:47:03--> 00:47:05

Now comes the important part.

00:47:06--> 00:47:14

Very important point we need to learn the prophets Allah Allah, Sanam, looks at him and says lakhtin rarely kabalarian for India who under Salta, mink,

00:47:16--> 00:47:24

go and teach these words to bill and ignore a bar of the Allahu Allah, because he has a much more beautiful and louder voice than yours.

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

What do we learn from this?

00:47:28--> 00:48:11

We learn that the ASEAN needs to be a person who has a beautiful voice, who calls the ASEAN in a way that automatically attracts people towards the Salah. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant that to us. And may He make us from those who when we call the event, everybody comes amazing. You see when you have an event, and it's powerful, and it's called Well, people listen to it, the non believers listen to a beautiful event, they wait for the next one, I have had people who know me who told me that you know, this particular machine, we actually wait and listen to this call. It's so sweet. We don't even know what it means. But we get so much sweetness out of listening to the beauty of it.

00:48:11--> 00:48:33

And we know the tune because obviously, you know the machines are known for their tune, they stick normally to one particular tune each person. And that would actually sound not only in this world, but even in the afro SubhanAllah. The Hadith says those who will have the tallest or the longest necks, they will be the most conspicuous on the day of judgment will be almost noon those who used to call out

00:48:35--> 00:48:47

they will be known from a distance why conspicuous very high. Why will they be so high? The hottest is low Yalla Manasa mfine. De he was suffering from malaria, je de la la lista.

00:48:49--> 00:49:35

If the people had known the value of calling out the event, and the value of standing in the first stuff, then if they couldn't do it, they would actually draw lots in order to pick up Who is the one who's going to be there. That's how serious it is. And that's how well virtue or that's how high highly virtuous it is. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guarantee to us, did you know that the admin gets the full reward of everyone who came to the masjid all their salaries. So if we are 700 people here for example, the admin gets 701 Salas rewards for that one Salah why he called him to the prayer. So Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors, and sometimes we find ourselves trading all over

00:49:35--> 00:50:00

these people and we don't even realize their value. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is paradise. And May He grant in paradise to sow Billa lipner abajo the Allahu anhu was told and Subhanallah he started calling the prayer. Allah Allahu Allah Subhana Allah beautiful call to prayer, and we know it to this day Billa live Nora who was the one who started

00:50:00--> 00:50:31

uttering these words, the Prophet sallallaahu salam had two main things. One was beloved and the other one Do you remember we made mention of him? Abdullah, even only Maktoum the blind man Subhana, Allah, Allah and me And may Allah be pleased with them, all of them. It's important for us to know these names. We're going to meet these people. It's important for us to know these names and to be able to recognize these people by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Billa deplorable in the future prayer, he added something What did he add a salam

00:50:32--> 00:51:17

to Iran Mina, no Subhana Allah, Salah is better than sleep. Prayer is better than sleep, he added that. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam atoma who Allah Allah, he said, Yes, that is correct, you can say so up to today for the federal prayer, we add that Subhana Allah Now it's important for us to know that the Juma prayer had one other later on at the time of us man up near founder of the Allahu anhu he introduced another second edition, which was also from above, they used to call it from the top high place at that time they were no minarets as we have them today, nor were they allowed hail is as we have them today, but they used to call it from the top above. And they used to call it in a

00:51:17--> 00:52:00

way that everyone could hear. So it was man of Nia Farmer of the Allahu anhu decided that look, we want to call the people. So let us call them through for Juma another and then so he introduced a second and then outside and he shared with me Abdulmalik later on in the AMA Empire. He is the one who told that I've been come inside and stand in front of them or stand in front of the Imam. So the other end that we have in front of the Imam that happens on a Friday is actually the original as an for Joomla but it was brought into the masjid by hishammuddin Abdul Malik May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, and may He make us from those who know the history of the event also in

00:52:00--> 00:52:40

Ramadan, a lot of the narrations make mention of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam having had two others for fudger. One would wake up the lazy for Soho, and the other one would actually get the people info for Salatin fudger and this is why to this day you find in a lot of the Middle Eastern countries in Ramadan, they have an early event, which is actually getting you up for the hygiene and at the same time telling you it is now time for support. And then you have another other and that is for salatu salam May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors in Sharla. Tomorrow, we will go through more of what happened in the initial stages in the Madina munawwara before we go into the

00:52:40--> 00:52:54

difficulties that were faced once again, at the hands of Quraysh and the enemies of Islam. Until then we say Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homovanillic a shadow Allah Allah Elantra sasakawa, toby Lake
