An in depth lesson within the Noble Qur’an,”Life of the Last Messenger (Muhammad PBUH)” by Mufti Ismail Musa Menk
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah.
Ameen. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa
we commence as always by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sending complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless him in his entire household, to bless all his companions and to bless every single one of us and to grant us goodness Mashallah seeing the smiles on the faces only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, we asked him to grant this acceptance, the fast that we have kept, as well as the Quran that we have read and listened to in the month of Ramadan. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us and make us from those whom He grants complete forgiveness in a way that we return as pure as the day we were born. I
mean, beloved brothers and sisters, as we had said, The Battle of the book, there were several categories of people that had stayed behind the first those who had excuses. The second those who did not have any excuses from amongst them, were those who were forgiven.
And from amongst them, were the hypocrites of Medina, and from amongst them with the hypocrites from outside Medina. And as for the hypocrites, they were not really worried about what people thought about them, because they came with their excuses to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, even before they had gone out to the book, before the army had gone out to the book. But there were three people who were very worried because they had had no excuse. They will not hypocrites, and they knew they did not come to present their excuses to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam before they left, the names of these three, the first one, healer lipno, Amaya, Allah and
the second one khabib, pneumonic rhodiola, and the third one marrara ignore a beer for the Allah. May Allah be pleased with all three of them. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met khabib mnemonic when they came back from the book and asked him where were you? Why didn't you come with us? So caribou Malika? The Allahu anhu he was a truthful man, he did not have any excuse. He says, Oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If I were to lie to you to make you happy, you may become happy, but I will be exposed by revelation. And if I were to tell you the truth, perhaps you will be upset with me, meaning I don't have an excuse.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him after he had explained that he had no excuse that go away from us until Allah subhanho wa Taala clears your names Allah will decide what exactly was your condition?
And the same happened to Hillel. And the same happened to Maura. Abner Robbie, may Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with them. So these three, everyone stopped talking to them.
Upon the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they were waiting clarification of the names of these three from Allah subhanho wa Taala clarification did not come not anytime soon.
A time came when even the greeting was left.
They would actually come in front of the messenger and greet him As salam o Alaikum. And he would turn away as per the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala Why did you stay back when it was compulsory for compulsory upon you to have come out you left an obligation between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala and now you want to come and present excuses. And now you want to come and be from amongst those who is saying that look, I really am sorry, Allah subhanho wa Taala will clarify your name. The reason here is because they were hypocrites that were admonished and exposed in the Quran. So Allah says those whom you go back to who had remained behind when you get to them, they will
present excuses, do not accept their excuses. Listen to the versus Yeah, Daddy Runa la comida de la, la
mina Lancome kadina bernama hoomin
they will present excuses when you get back to them as to why they did not come to the expedition of the book. Tell them we are not going to accept your excuses. Allah has exposed you and Allah has informed us about you. So this is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted nobody's actually excuses. If there was to be an exception, it was only by revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So there came a time when these three found it. So difficult.
exist in Madina munawwara they used to come for Salah, no one greets them no one responds to their greeting, no one looks at them. And these are companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. a day goes by a week goes by 10 days go by 20 days a month goes by then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructs their wives to separate from them. So, Pamela, in the meantime, these people have no hatred in their heart, they are making dua to Allah Allah forgive us Yala cleanser name Yala, clear us, Yala. We asked you forgiveness Yella we have wronged we want you to forgive us and they continued without losing hope. The wife of Isla lipno Maya
was an elderly man. The wife of Romania came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam jasola My husband is a very old man.
Do you allow me to take care of him at least to take care of him? There is nothing more that I will do besides serve him because he's old. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made the exception for he live in Omaha.
And as with the other two, no exception, there came a time when they were so narrowed as broad as the earth was they felt there is nowhere to go Where can we go? And one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes out of his room. And he was so happy, so happy. Why was he so happy? Because gibril Allah is Salatu was Salam came to him with versus what Allah says Allah Azza
wa Taala him
verses clarifying that these three in particular who had stayed behind from the Battle of the book have been forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala, after what had happened when the earth became so narrow for them, although it was so broad, and after their hearts became so hurt and they had engaged in Toba and so on Allah says Allah has accepted their Toba and they are forgiven. So when the companions came, they all began to congratulate these people and embrace them and say Allah has indeed declared that you people were truthful in that you had no excuse your Toba was truthful you are not from amongst the hypocrites, and Allah has forgiven you. Malik,
cabin nomadic or the airline will say says no, I want the messenger to come. And when the messenger came sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam and informed him the news. He says, Is it from you? Or is their revelation? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read the verses he was so happy, delighted. Now there are verses in the Quran that we read up to the day of the AMA
clarifying the names of certain people from amongst them these three May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors. This was after 15 days of suffering by these three this was the payment they had to pay. They engaged in Toba for 50 days. They had to
endure the ignoring of all the people including those who are most beloved to them at the top of the list. masala honey was not speaking to them at all because of their sins until Allah subhanho wa Taala cleanse them and clarify their name. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us also purity and may He make us not from amongst the hypocrites. May He clear us and clarify us. Sometimes you have people who label others. Sometime they spread rumor about others they spread rumor about us who will clarify our names besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in the same way that Allah subhanho wa Taala cleanse the names of those in the past, although that was through revelation, but it is also Allah
through his miracle that can cleanse our names. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from false accusation. And more importantly, may Allah protect us from missing our tongues falsely accusing others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us Putin's Amin.
Then when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got back from this battle of the book, this thing had happened. And in a few days, a group of people came to meet the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam whoever the people are the people of those who had harmed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam more than once, those whom he had made a dua for before he dropped those whom he had made it to our for, after he john after the Battle of her name as well. He was asked on messenger Raise your hands and pray against these people. He says Allah guide these people and let him come to me in the
condition of Islam. So the same man up the alley. He comes with a group of six people all together and he decided let's go to Al Madina munawwara as they were coming, a movie like Nisha Bharati, Allah sees them and Abu Bakr Siddiq also sees them. And Abu Bakr Siddiq are the one who told him but let me run and inform Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the people of Thai are coming Subhana Allah. So he went and he told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was very happy. When they came, he welcomed them. They were his guests. Subhana Allah, He put up a little tent in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam or according to some narrations right outside the masjid in
a way that they could hear what happened in the masjid, the Quran, they could hear it, they could see what was happening amongst the believers. They were surprised and amazed for the first time, they actually lent an ear to what was happening up to this time. They did not want to hear remember in five what happened, they did not want to hear anything. They just began to beat this man. Now they've been and the Battle of her name, they didn't hear a thing. So they did not really know what Islam was all about. Now they set and they heard and after they heard the prophets of Allah Salaam, after he had obviously one of the most hospitable people in existence.
He was alone with his hospitality. They had stayed, and he then speaks to them into the fold of Islam. It's about time you came into the fold. So this app Dr. Lee libnah. Marie says we have a few questions for you. What are the questions? Number one?
We have heard you say that adultery is prohibited? What is it with adultery? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says it is totally prohibited. And he read the verse what a taco Xena don't even go close to adultery. So this up the alley, it says you know, our people, they are involved in it in a big way. If we're going to tell them not to do it, you know, they won't bear patients, they are definitely going to continue engaging in it. And it's very impossible for them to abstain from this that is ingrained in their blood since they were born. He's actually telling the the messenger that we can't adopt this rule. Then he says the other one we want to ask you about is Riba and interest.
What about Riba and interest? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited the verse, which explained that that is prohibited. He says, How can we bear patients against that we have so much dealings full of interest, and now you're telling us to cut it completely, totally, instantaneously. It's not going to happen. It's very difficult. And the third question they asked, What about alcohol? This summer, the winds and the alcohol that we drink, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam read the verse again, he said, this is very difficult. Our people are engrossed in it, buying, selling, drinking, getting drunk, they enjoy it. And this is what they do in their spare time when they have their wealth, they
spend it in this and so on. The prophets of Allah Salam said, this is the deal. Not from me, I don't make it on my own. It is a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So one of them.
They've started speaking to one another, they said, you see all these people here. They all used to commit adultery, or a lot of them. And a lot of them were involved in interest, and a lot of them used to drink. But they all left it. So I'm sure we could leave it. Look at the common sense. If they can leave it Why can we not leave it? Look at the sense of these people from far if how many of us are ready to learn from them? That we can leave it if the others have left you you see others up your Why do you have to go to the nightclub? Why do you have to go to drink alcohol? What about the rest of them? Why can't you abstain just like everybody else has abstained? Allah protect us.
Remember, Allah gives us chance after chance. We have bad habits. It is lessons like these from the Sierra that soften our hearts. And this is when we should be turning to Allah. If the dunya has left interest, why can't we? If they have left adultery, why can't we if they have left alcohol? Why can't we if they have not gambled? Why do we continue gambling? May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and May He grant us a turning point. So they decided okay, we are declaring that you are the Messenger of Allah, we have accepted Islam, Subhan Allah, and we have considered what you have said as prohibited, and we will not engage in it. Look at this. Moments ago, they were asking questions
and they were promising, it's not going to be possible. And a few moments later, they said if everyone else has done it, we should be doing it as well. So pan Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant a steadfastness May he make us from those who look at those who are higher than us in spirituality so that we can move up the ladder. And may He make us from those who look at those who are lower than us in material wealth, so that we can appreciate what we have. This is the teaching of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam he says own guru Illa man who
Do not come when it comes to your problems and your difficulties and your material issues. Look at those who are in a worse condition, it will make you appreciate the beauty that you are in.
Don't ever look at those in a higher material position because then you won't appreciate what you have. You don't have one leg. Look at those who don't have both legs. But don't look at those who are running on their feet. Perhaps Allah has tested them with something else. But when it comes to religion, look at those who are higher than you. Allah subhanho wa Taala will assist you to actually go up the ladder when you appreciate those who have achieved Mashallah, you see someone in Salah all night you tell yourself at least I should read a portion of it. It will protect you from having misters Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us goodness. So these people then went back to
their people, but they asked the messenger one more thing they said, you see we have a massive idol Allah was based in their region.
He says, up the alley libnah hammer says for three years we don't want you to destroy that either leave it because we have women who worship it, we have children, but if we destroy it all at once, perhaps they will feel something in their hearts. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no. They said, Okay, one year, he said no said okay, one month, he said, No. It should be destroyed immediately. So they said, Okay, can you excuse us from destroying it? You send someone so he said no problem I will send he sent to the mahira ignition. And I want to make mention of a beautiful story that is mentioned in some of the books of history. When I read it, I laughed. So I thought to myself, let me
also share it with you. It's mentioned the books of history that are moving right along and he was a companion, who was very jocular. He used to like to joke. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent him with a few people to destroy a lot. And the people have, they all gathered this about 1015 men with a movie right Misha come from Madina munawwara and they have to destroy a lot. He takes the axe, and everyone is telling, you know, they have this belief in them. They've been worshipping it since before they were born, meaning their forefathers, and to them, this was their God now going. So they said, This man is going to die. As soon as he strikes this idle, he's going to die. Look, he cannot
hit it, even though they were people who knew what was going on. And they knew what the teachings of Islam were. But they were still under this false notion that this thing is going to harm the men. So it's reported in one of the narrations that movie ravnica. He looked at them, and he Allahu Akbar, he struck the idol. And he fell down. And when he fell down, they said, you see, we told you, and immediately after he heard them say all the things, he got up and started laughing, and he doesn't watch you think you think this thing is going to harm me. Since Japan Allah, Allah is the college This is a stone that will never harm a benefit, let alone others but even itself. Now Allah subhanho
wa Taala protect us. And then he destroyed this entire idol with the help of the others. And this was the end of the shift in that particular region. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then caused Islam to spread very, very fast because these people were strong. In no time there people also accepted Islam. What was happening, the groups were coming to Madina munawwara delegations were coming to Madina munawwara. So much so that the ninth year of ijarah, was known as the year of delegations. In total, they were more than 70 delegations that came to Medina manohara and more than 20 in this particular year. In fact, some of the scholars take it to up to 50 delegations in one year, until it
was known as the year of delegations. What was happening, delegations were coming one after the other. And they were asking questions, accepting Islam, some of them had accepted Islam, and were just coming to declare their pledge. And some of them, they came to learn and they spent some time somewhere in large numbers. Some delegations made up of only one men, they came, they learned, they went back to their people. They told him what happened and the people were accepting Islam and karate about him. All of them have won in armies and in droves, they were accepting Islam Subhana Allah. Now, we had made mentioned yesterday, I'm not going to repeat it, but I just want to
highlight the point of the death of the head of the hypocrites in the ninth year of Egypt. And this was after that Masjid there was destroyed the hypocrite the leader Abdullah hypnobabies. Allah had died, and we made mention of it in a little bit of detail yesterday. In the same year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost one of his family members again the previous year, he lost Xena Binti Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that was in the eighth year of hegira. How did she pass away? Do you know the books of history make mention of the fact that when she was making the hegira because a blouse or a beer after the Battle of butter was sent back, if you recall the story, and he was told
to send his wife who was the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu
allow her to make hegira as she was leaving Quraysh began to harm her to the degree that they dropped her from the top of the animal. And she suffered a miscarriage according to some narrations, and she was very ill thereafter, she remained ill until the day she passed away a few years later. This was in a Binti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She was a woman whose husband being emotionally still praised her. And he said, If I were to choose from all the Women of Courage, I still would choose my own wife who I have the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that was in the eighth year, in the ninth year, he lost another daughter of his uncle, who was
married to a man of near a friend of the Allahu anhu. After the death of Rukia Binti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you recall, after the Battle of bodom, Rukia rhodiola passed away, and the prophets of Allah cillum got another daughter of his married to his men, and upon the death of omo consume, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, oh, man, if I had had another daughter, I would have got her married to you. So Hannah, this is from the virtue of
Allah and what a powerful son in law What a great man What a great friend, and what a great family member, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us qualities of this nature. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors.
There was another death that took place in this ninth year, some narration say the eighth year of Egypt, and some of the narration say the ninth year of hegira. This was one day the Prophet sallallahu wasallam got up and he told his companions, let's get up and read Salatu Genesis upon a brother of yours who has passed away in Abba, sr, some heinola this was an agenda and while he was in Madina, munawwara the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was informed that he has passed away. So therefore, he instructed his companions to get up and he led Salah to janaza upon a man who was in Abyssinia, because there was no one there to lead Salah too generous on him. And here the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led a Salah Allah, Salah of generosity upon a person who was absent at the time, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told his people that this and he was from amongst those who had died on that particular day. Then also in the ninth year of he dropped the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Saint Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu for Hajj with the Muslims as the leader of Hajj, Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allahu anhu when one might ask, why did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam not go in the ninth year? He makes mention of some reasons that in Mecca, two things were happening. two main things were happening that were very negative and very
bad. One was, they had a habit of promising things. And then if the thing happens, they would then make our way around the Kaaba, naked, men and women.
And sometimes if they wanted something to happen, they would first come around the Kaaba, make power naked, and then they would pray that that thing had happened, they would pray to their idols and so on. So although Makkah was victorious, and it was under Muslim hands, there were still people who are not Muslims in muckety muck karma, and they still use to engage in this type of activity. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I don't want to go there once the condition is this. Number two, the Hajj, the rituals of Hajj were slightly different from the rituals we have, they did not use to stop in Africa, they used to be in was deliever. And they treated that as a place of dealing and they
used to buy and sell and they made it a festival more than anything else.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent Abu Bakr Casa de la and with his companions, Abu Bakr, Siddiq, or the Allahu anhu went, teaching the people, the Islamic teachings of Hajj exactly how it is supposed to be done. And at the same time,
there was an announcement made the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent
out the Allahu anhu to meet Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah one in order to announce every way, a few announcements. So why was Ali rhodiola and sent because when Abu Bakr Siddiq who left and he was in
verses were reviewed in Madina, munawwara bah
bah, bah Sunni
a lot Allah has declared freedom from what you have struck as agreement with the machine for months grace after that, everything shall be null and void between us and them and and void which means go and announce to them a few things. One is, no one will make tawaf naked after this time after this year. No machinic will make Hajj after this year. It's only for the Muslims. So Panama
So this was some of the announcements and the announcement that if there is anything that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has promised you pledged you here, besides certain agreements that were upheld, the rest of them are null and void. It's an Islamic teaching that when you want to declare a treaty or for example, a bilateral agreement, when you want to make it null and void, you must make an announcement give them some time, but of notice, they were given four months notice. And they were told after that there's nothing between us and you in terms of agreement because now maca was no longer in the hands of the Muslims. It was now in the hands of the Muslim in. So it came
under new leadership and they were new rules and regulations. So Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu went for Hajj. Mashallah, with a great number of Sahaba, the Allahu anhu. They had taken their animals they had gone out. He had given lectures on the day of Minar, as well as the day of arafah as well as the day of the slaughter and sacrifice known as the day of eat or Yamanaka, the day of the sacrifice, as well as the day after that of pelting, Abu Bakr Siddiq Allahu anhu gave lectures teaching people telling them what to do, what not to do. And immediately after that aliotti alone, who would get up and make announcements of the verses that were revealed and the fact that from next
year, nobody is allowed to make the walk around this cabin, naked, and no mushnik is allowed to make Hajj. And with this announcement, and with these verses, the entire period of worship of idols in Makkah, came to an end. It came to an end. In fact, in a lot of the region, it was already becoming destroyed, people began to understand the reality of idols that these idols mean nothing but this Hajji was very important. And then Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu came back to Al Madina munawwara with the companions and Mashallah they had achieved this Hajj, and this was the hardware, Nabi sallallahu, Sallam disputed abubaker acidic or the Allahu anhu in order to take the muslimeen
and to go for Hajj. In the ninth year of hegira, as we made mentioned, many groups came, many delegations came. I'd like to mention the names of some of these delegations and perhaps an incident or two of some of the delegations as well. There was a delegation known as what do abdicate. This was the delegation of the case they had come through to Madina, munawwara there was another delegation of women,
single men delegation, he came to Madina, munawwara from Burnside, and he asks the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has Allah, is it Allah who instructed you that you should worship none other than Him? The prophets of Allah says, Yes, Allah who appointed you as a messenger, yes. Is it Allah who instructed you that you should tell us that we should read five Salah? Yes. Is it Allah who instructed you that we should give xhaka? Yes, and several other questions. Then he says, I believe that Allah is one and I believe that you are the messenger, whatever you have told me to do, I will do and I'm not going to increase or decrease. That's it.
And he went away, this man, one man delegation, he went back to his people
who later accepted Islam Subhan Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as this Bedouin left, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells his companions, if you if this man is truthful, Allah will grant him genuine return.
If this man is truthful, what was the truthfulness about? nubby salatu salam had only told him the forum at which was compulsory. And he said, I'm going to do that no more and no less and he went away. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says if this man is truthful, Allah will grant him gender in return. And this is why we are taught what is foreign. Don't ever don't ever compromise that which is compulsory, don't and as for that which is extra, the sooner the Nuffield, the more we read, the more complete our foreign will be. For example, if your follow up say in Salah, sometimes we lack a little bit of concentration,
and in fact a lot of the times we lack concentration, perhaps there will be something short in our Salah. On the day of reckoning. If there is anything short. The Hadith says Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask the angels look into any sooner or voluntary prayer if there is any, then you can fill what is short in terms of the foreign from the sooner and the nothing so we better have a large stockpile of soon and nothing by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the beauty of reading so now and nothing that we will have a stockpile. I'm just calling it that for today. But we will have a large amount of that which will act as a compensation if we are short in what we needed to have had
particular day, may Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us. Then there was a very famous delegation known as what do nasaan
the Christians of Iran, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they started talking to him. And every time he had put a tent in one part of the masjid, and they would stay there, if they were more they would actually filter out of the masjid. And they used to sit, clean, and listen to what was going on from the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you go today, you will find one of the pillars in the robot. It says there was no food. This is the pillar where the Prophet salallahu Salam used to meet the delegations, you will notice it is in the masjid Subhan Allah. So they came, they sat, they listened. And then they said to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam and these people were Christians. They said, We surrendered before you we are Muslims before you we accepted Jesus. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, straight to the point. He says, I know more about Jesus than you know, what do you mean, you know, more, and there was a discussion that happened. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, Look, let me be blunt with you, meaning he spoke to them directly. And he says, there are three things that are stopping you from entering Islam. That's it. What are the three things he said, firstly, you worship the cross, Jesus did not teach you to worship the cross number one.
Number two, he says, you'd like to consume swine, and Jesus prohibited swine.
Panama. Number three, he says, You call Jesus a son of God. And Jesus Himself said, I am the messenger of God, not a son of his straight to the point straight to the point. These are the teachings of Islam. And then they said no, you are lying, you don't know and so on and it became a little bit hot. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam called them for what is known as a MOBA Allah, Allah revealed verses and Allah
In masala is
de la he came SLE Adam, indeed the example of Jesus May peace be upon him in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala is similar to that of Adam. how Allah created him, Allah created this one, Allah.
Allah created him from dust from soil from makalah. Who can then Allah said, Be fire?
And he was, so it was the word of Allah that created Jesus, it was not a Begotten Son, according to Islam, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant His goodness.
Then Allah revealed verses immediately after that, Simon
Jaffe mean that the manga kameena Saku
if someone wants to argue with you about that, after knowledge has come to you regarding that, tell them come here.
Come, we will call our children, your children, our women, your women, ourselves yourselves. Let's stand you stand aside, we stand aside from
Long Island Academy, then we will call for the curse of the Almighty to be upon those who are liars.
There we are. So when they heard this, they were shocked they began to tremble. The messenger began to prepare his family members Come, let's go. We want to stand and tell these people, the curse of Allah be upon those who are lying regarding Jesus. Let the curse of Allah be. They refused. These NASA of Nigerian, they refused immediately. And they told each other do you know this man? He's an OB. And you know what if he says anything, we are going to be doomed. So the best thing is let us not make this particular MOBA holla let's not curse ourselves because we will go back and be destroyed according to our own prayer and our own.
And this is when they said or messenger
can we not be under your protected it? I spoke to you yesterday about jizya and how it works, that it is an amount that is paid for people to be under the Muslim protection
because they are not Muslim. They had to pay an amount if they were Muslim. It was done for free from the amount that belonged to the entire Muslims.
So they said no, we will pay this amount and send with us someone who is very honest. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said I will send to you the honest men of our Alma get up above obey the law
mooroopna Java and go with them. And in the from this narration we understand that Abu Zubaydah was given a title amine Wahhabi and oma. He was known as the trustworthy of this particular oma. He went with them and thereafter, It is reported that later on after some time, they had also accepted Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is all goodness and may He opened our doors.
Another group of people that had come, there was a man known as Tammy Tammy macdaddy. And what happened is he was a person who had been a Christian before and he lived in alkaloids in Palestine for some time, there is quite a long story. He came with a group of people, he declared his Islam when he came to Madina, munawwara and he was the first men who introduced a lantern in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Before that, it was dark, it was always dark and they did not have a lamp or a lantern in the masjid. But he was the first one because of what they used to do in LA. And because of what they used to do in Jerusalem, he then introduced this Lenten in the masjid
and this is why Tommy macdaddy wrote the Allah and he was known as the first person to introduce a Lenten in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Some people say that he had come slightly earlier and some people say that he had come slightly later there are some narrations, what we have mentioned, is the fact that he came and he came with his group of people, some of the other
groups that came a group known as the people of Canada, and these people of Canada.
Subhan Allah, they came in, they asked questions to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, won't you accept Islam? They said Bella, indeed we will accept Islam we have you have answered our questions, we are satisfied. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them
what is the piece of silk that you have on your neck?
They immediately took it out, ripped it and threw it away.
Why am I saying this? To show you that people who accepted Islam new Muslims, as soon as they were told what was halal and haram, they surrendered to it without even asking a question. He only asked what is that? Now in Islam, we heard in Madina munawwara the Prophet sallallahu wasallam caught up one day, he put gold in one hand, and he put silk in the other and he says in the Hara Manila Dooku Mati. These two are prohibited for the male's of my own man, there we are. Jewelry any form of jewelry prohibited for a male males are not allowed to wear jewelry, jewelry is for females, these people this soft touch, immediately they ripped it and put it aside, how many of us are ready to
give up our chains and earrings that we've been wearing for years as men, as males, we're not talking to the females yet, as males will lie II if we can give it up for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Tonight, perhaps we will enter gentlemen, just through the one deed that we have on our records. May Allah subhanahu wa taala strengthen our men, our young boys as well. Don't feel hurt that you're going to lose a chain that stuck around your neck. You remove it immediately take off your earrings, throw it out and say yeah, Allah if jewelry is not for men, I have heard what the people of Canada have done yeah, Allah helped me to grant me Jenna in the same way May Allah
subhanho wa Taala grant us gender.
So this was a lesson that we learn from these people then also, there are so many other
groups that had come I won't mention all their names, but one I need to make mention of the people of Hassan, those people who have made the ambassador of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they actually came in a group of people to Madina, munawwara these nights they had come to declare their Islam when they declared their Islam, the area of concern became a stronghold of the Muslims in that particular region. Look at the drama of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam What happened? In few years in no time, the whole world around was changing. They were all converting way did they convert by the sword, they converted by knowing what was right by being convinced after seeing the Muslims
living with them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave them opportunity to listen to the Quran to ask questions. The questions were responded and so on. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us goodness, a point that always comes to my mind. I like to look at ourselves, put ourselves in that particular position. We have the Quran, we have Islam, we have all the goodness we know what is right still sometimes we are weak.
We find it
very difficult to adopt what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly dictated. May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our doors and May He grant us strength. May He make us from those who can use this month of Ramadan as a springboard to paradise May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors really, we should be weeping we should be crying. We are in the last day or two of the month of Ramadan. And at the same time, we need to make a promise now that this Ramadan is not going to be a Ramadan where we come out of it and go back to our bad habits. That's what we've been doing all along. It's like we worship Allah only in Ramadan.
You plug it in, as soon as the heat is over, the air conditioner is out, you plug it up. Don't treat Ramadan, like an appliance that you plug in and plug out when you need and when you don't know, Ramadan, we plug in inshallah with the idea of benefiting completely thereafter, may Allah subhanahu wa taala opened our doors in the ninth year of hegira. Also, there was something else that happened. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had had a son from Maria de la Anna, known as Ibrahim, even Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had been sent for suckling and for breastfeeding and to be looked after, to a certain area.
And then, the man of the house was a blacksmith where he used to blow into the oil and so on causing a lot of smoke and what have you. And this may have resulted in a respiratory disease in this little child, who then passed away in his childhood in his infancy, in fact,
and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was called to that place. He picked up his son when his son was breathing his last few breaths. He did not blame anyone to say, you know what, it's your smoke that killed him. Today we have a problem Really? Sometimes we lose a family member, and we start blaming people. Yes, it's different if it was murdered, Subhan Allah, but sometimes we say no, had you not done this, this wouldn't have happened. And you know, it's because of you that this learn from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam Not once, did he even hint towards the issue, that you know what this respiratory disease could have been caused because of the blowing of the iron? Oh, by this
particular man in whose house this young child of mine was not once did he say that? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to surrender to his decree, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam held his child and he saw
a vision in
the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari makes mention of how his eyes became full of tears when he saw his son breathing his last.
So the Sahaba asked him on messenger you are crying, he says, In nama here, Ramadan Jalla Allahu mahama. Indeed, this is the mercy that Allah has placed in the hearts of those who have mercy. So to share the tear is not bad. We are not questioning the decree of Allah, whatever Allah has done, we are happy with it. May Allah subhanahu wa Jalla grant us a lesson from this. Look at Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam lost all his children besides Fatima rhodiola ohana all of them, had passed away. His sons, his daughters, we made mention of all of them one after the other. And this was the son in the ninth year of hegira passing away and he is very happy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he cried. He
was saddened not because he was upset with the decree of Allah, but because he had lost his son. So it's okay to cry to weep. But at the same time, let's learn a lesson on that day there was an eclipse. So the people began to say this eclipse is because the son of Mohammed has passed away. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam got up and he made an announcement in the people in Assam, Seville Kamara I mean it la de la FC finally Moti I didn't want it hierarchy for either item delicata cola in one direction solu tion jelly. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says the sun and the moon are signs from the signs of Allah. They do not Eclipse because of the life or the death of anybody. They don't look
he clarified it he cleared it. When you see this eclipse you need to make dua until it returns to normal and when duration says engage in Salah until it returns to normal. So when you see the eclipse you immediately engage into
you don't make an issue of tourism out of an eclipse people go far and wide traveling to the North Pole in order to see how it's gonna look and laugh and joke and so on. No, when we look at it when we see it, it's not haram to look at it because the Hadith says for either item danek when you see that then you should make sure you are making you are asking for forgiveness, you are engaged in the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala you go into Salah until the time when this thing returns to normal. This was a clarification that was made on the day of the death of Ibrahim Even though rasulillah is Allah
Then Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In the same ninth year, towards the end of the ninth year, the beginning of the 10th year of Egypt. He sent a few of his companions to some of the areas that had accepted Islam in order to teach them the deen. So this was a method of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam part of his part of his way. He would send some of the knowledgeable companions to one area in order to teach them their Deen.
And this is why those scholars of Islam up to this day who leave their little towns and cities in order to go and do a mama or in order to go and teach people in a different city, they fall under the sooner May Allah subhanahu wa jal accepted from them and from us all. So the prophets Allah wa Salaam sent from amongst those whom he sent, I'm only going to speak of two more Agni, Jebel and Abu Salah sharing of the Allah and Houma. He sent them to Yemen, different parts of Yemen Yemen was very big. They had accepted Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he walked with them.
And as he left with him to the outskirts of Medina, he was advising them Omar
in the cattlemen Allah kita for the room, Illa Shahada to Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Rasulullah you will see people who belong to the people of the book, when you see them, call them towards worshiping Allah alone and inform them that I am the messenger, call them towards La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for in Houma la calidad
de la him Hamza Salatin, Pico Leo meanwhile Allah if they follow you regarding that, then you should let them know that Allah has made compulsory upon them five Sala throughout the day and night for in Houma, Canada they can if they follow you regarding that, then you should let them know that there is a fast that they have to engage in and if they follow you with that, then let them know that there is a charity is the car that they need to give out.
And so on. And this is how the Prophet sallallahu wasallam taught Martigny Java, then he tells him Yamaha
moto loom for him the hula Sabina obeying the law Hey job, be careful of the dua made by an oppressor against you. Sorry, be careful, but of the two are made by the oppressor, against the oppressor. For indeed, there is no barrier between that door and Allah. If someone is oppressed, if someone is hurt and harmed, and someone is wronged, if they have to raise their hands and make dua against you, if you are the oppressor, you have had it. That's what the prophet sallallahu wasallam is saying. Because there is no barrier between that dua and Allah. If it doesn't get to you today, it will get to you tomorrow. The lesson comes to all of us, sometimes we have wrong people, we harm
them. We oppress them in a big way. The term boom has no proper English translation, we use the word operation but operation has a meaning that includes doom and gloom includes much more than that as well.
So, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam owns Mojave Magellan. Then he tells both of them Abu Musa and Maha Allahumma he says, Yes, Sera, Sera Baba Shira wala tuna Fira, you're going to go make things easy for people. Don't make them difficult. And give them good news. Don't do them. Subhana Allah don't give them bad news. But Shira, voila, tuna fella, give them good news. Don't talk to them in a way that they go away from you. And this is a lesson for all of us who speak to the Muslims, and even who speak to the non Muslims when we speak. There needs to be a way of speaking, we will never compromise what is right and wrong, but put it across in a way that perhaps is most palatable.
If you have tried your best and they still don't want to accept it that's between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala for as long as you have tried your best. Then there was a statement that came from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that made me cry, he says Yamaha
perhaps when you come to Medina next you won't see me.
Perhaps you will pass by my Masjid and you will pass by my grave more added manageable began to weep, weep this was a prophecy that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was in his last year. He says if you come next year, but the army had after this year of mine, you may not see me, perhaps you will pass by my musket and my grave SubhanAllah. Now just to take you forward. Do you know when we're adding the javelin or the Allahu anhu came back to Medina when the generosity of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was leaving? That was next when he saw Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam so this was true, it was a prophecy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and mercy
He opened our doors, we need to move in to one of the big one of the major events that took place in the 10th year of hijiri. And I'm going to take a little bit of time mentioning this, seeing that tomorrow will be the last of the episodes of this year. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had received verses from Allah subhanho wa Taala. While in
Dubai The man is in a semi ILA, it is compulsory from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala has made it compulsory upon those who are able and capable to go for Hajj
to Mecca to Muhammad, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made an announcement. I intend to make Hajj when was this in the 10th year of Egypt. He made the announcement in blue cape that
I intend to go for Hajj. So so many people got ready because it was four of them. And they had to go from MCC MCC from Madina munawwara as well as the outskirts of Madina munawwara and as they had left, so many people join them on the path. It is reported that the initial figure was 100,000 men and women who are with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. 100,000 look at how the figures have swollen over time. These are the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got ready and all those who heard began to prepare Mashallah, they joined him on the path and on the road. And it is reported according to some narrations of the historians that on the 25th of
located after salado, he read for a cat of salado pour in his Masjid, and he proceeded going towards Makkah to mahkamah. And he had made an intention of what we know today as clan Karen meaning he will make an ombre and without coming out of the harem, he will then continue into the days of Hajj, so one Haram, but the umbra and the Hajj, three types of Hajj one is tomato, which means you make Ramadan, you release yourself from the Haram and then you make hatch. The other is you only make the Hajj known as Iran and this one is Iran meaning you join the two of them with one haram without coming out of the Haram. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam thereafter began to declare his intention
and they began the TLB Allah by law Humala by
Sheree Kala Kala back in Alhambra when a meta Luca was
sharing kerak beautiful words we are here at your service we have answered your call Oh Allah, we are here at your service Allah subhanho wa Taala there is none in partnership with you Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the declaration of the Hajj and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had left until he got to the place known as the puja just outside Mecca. Tomoko Rama, for your information at
the prophets of Allah celebrates Allah to Lhasa to rocket, which means he was already on the journey. And he had continued when he got to the tour, he spent the night day and this was on the fourth of the ledger. So it took them quite a few days to get there.
He spent the night day on the fourth of the Legion, and thereafter he got up in the morning he had a bath panela he entered Mecca from the north, the northern part of Mecca, which means coming down from Madina munawwara it was the northern part of Mecca, he entered muckety muck Obama.
He had left the tour after Salatin by the time he entered Mecca, it was early morning, mid morning. And when he got there, first thing he did, he went to the Hydra sweat, obviously declaring his Tobia and at the same time
making the car the various words. We're not going to make mention of all the details. He went to the rokan the stone and he kissed it sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he started his O'Meara. And what he did is he had had his right arm opened as it was when they did go to Cuba, and he walked with his chest out with a quick military style walk for the first three rounds. And then he calmed down the walking but he still had his arm opened. He completed the seven rounds every round he was kissing the stone. Thereafter, he read some Salah to rock out of Salah between the mcom and the hajra maqam Ibrahim today we see a little golden structure there. The footprints of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam
are still there up to today. And the prophets of Allah celebrate Salah between the mcom and the Hydra in that particular place. In the first vaca he read.
And in the second locker, he read pool hall according to some of the narrations and thereafter, he proceeded to kiss the stone ones
Again, and then he went up he had a bit of Zamzam. And he had gone to a sofa when he went to Mount sofa where to start from sofa. He says, Remember that Allah will be, I will start from that which Allah has started within the Quran, and he read the verse in a sofa when Marois Tommy, Misha.
I'm sure we all know these verses that the Safa and Marwa from the sacred signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he started at Safa, and as he got to the bottom of the valley, he went a little bit, which means he picked up pace, and when he got to the top again as he got up slightly, he worked normally again until he got to the top of Marwan at the top of Safa. Before he started, he had read some to us, this verse that I had said, including La, La La, la sharika, Hunan, muku Buccola hamdu lillahi WA, ala coalition, including La ilaha illallah wa Sadako, as
well as the agenda who has a man
These are some of the two hours made on the day of
the day of the trench. And then he stood there facing the Qibla made a dua, he went tomorrow, he did the same thing in Marwa he faced the Qibla made the dua read the same and came down again. And as he was going between Safa and Marwa at the bottom of the valley, he always made sure that he had picked up pace more or less broken into a slight trot or jog, as we would say, today, there are green lights between those two positions depicting where it was that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam broke into a job. The reason why there are green lights, there's no Valley anymore. So panela it is all flattened and everything is straight. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to could take us there again
and again. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam completed his seven rounds. Thereafter, he stayed, he stayed in muckety muck
for a few days, and he remained in that particular harem. And he spoke to his companions and he says, low is stackable to mean Emory mustard bar to Lama Zopa dulhaniya wa jal to her Amara. If I knew then what I know now, I would not have brought my sacrificial animal and I would have made an ombre which means I would have made tomato. And this is why the scholars of the scholars of jurisprudence, some of them say it's better to do Paragon because that's what the prophet sallallaahu salam did. And some of them say it's better to do tomato because that is what he said he would have done Subhan Allah, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter, after saying
that he spent a few days still in muckety muck karma, and after some time, he then proceeded to, in fact, on the eighth day of the ledger, he proceeded to minim and this was a Thursday, he proceeded to Mina. This was known as young with Talia. And
in Minar, he read salata and acid, Maverick, Russia and the father of the following day, and after the sun had risen, he proceeded, he proceeded past most Delica the people of Quraysh, who had accepted Islam thought he might stop in was deliver, but Islam came with a teaching go to arafa immediately and this is why they went to arafa they spent the day there it was a Friday according to the narrations and he had given a lecture, inshallah, tomorrow we will discuss the details of this particular lecture, that he had delivered on the day of Africa. And thereafter, after he had delivered the lecture, once he repeated similar words the following day and the following day in
different lectures of his because this was known as a Jetta Lula da the farewell pilgrimage it was the only pilgrimage he had made, why was it called farewell because this is when he paid for him, he actually bid farewell to everybody and he told him that perhaps you will not see me after this year. So at that particular time in hajj, he had said this inshallah tomorrow we will continue with this we have left off in Arusha inshallah, tomorrow we will take from there we will spend the night inshallah tonight and Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant His goodness and may He bring us again here tomorrow to continue from where we left off and to end of the series until then inshallah we
say was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah subhana wa salam O Allah Allah Elantra, Mr. hirokawa to be unique
