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

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:45

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi wa sallahu wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala Mallanna ba ba de who were Allah, Allah He was happy he Germaine we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all his household his companions May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless him and grant him all goodness and May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us, beloved brothers and sisters in Islam. We thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us such a blessed month whereby we come every single night for the entire month, and we listen to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And above that we take home a

00:00:45--> 00:01:31

message that we can ponder over, and we can study we can implement in our own lives and convey it to others. So thank Allah for giving us season after season for rejuvenating and refreshing our spirituality and for granting us closeness to Him. May He still grant us even more closeness to him as the days pass in such a way that the day we leave this world, we will be the closest we ever were to our own maker. May He forgive us on that day? And May He grant us ease? beloved brothers and sisters, we were looking at how the kuffaar of Quraysh the disbelievers in Quraysh had boycotted the Muslims. And I had made mention of several points they said we will not marry into them no will we

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

allow them to marry into us? We will not deal with them, nor will we allow them to deal with us. We will not provide them any sustenance, anything at all that is of goodness for them. We're not going to sign a treaty with them. No will we allow them to initiate that? And we are not going to mix with them? No will we allow them to mix with us, we will not even sit with them and we will not even talk to them and we won't even allow them to enter our houses. These were some of the points that were written down and described for your information the man who was writing it down. His name was monsoon Ebony crema according to some of the narrations. later on. He actually became paralyzed on

00:02:16--> 00:03:02

his hand. He couldn't write after that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us remember one thing when a person harms the friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah He there is very little hope for them. Because it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who will retaliate instead of that particular person, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and grant us goodness. So they had written this, and they had managed to get the Muslims into a place known as Shi Abu Talib, on the outskirts of Macedon, mocha Rama, and for three years, the Muslims suffered as we made mention of last night, they began to eat the leaves of the trees. And they were sucking on the roots of some of the shrubs in order to

00:03:02--> 00:03:07

extract the water from the the liquid from it. And they were

00:03:08--> 00:03:51

roasting the skins meaning the hide of the animals that they had already cut and trying to nibble on it in order to get whatever goodness was there. They became frail, they became sick, they became very, very weak and so on. It did not deter them. Not at all. Not at all. with us. Imagine for three years if we had to be boycotted completely no food, no drink. I think three days later, we probably would give him May Allah subhanho wa Taala safe goddess. The reason I make mention of this is because we are spoiled. And still we don't understand the gift of Allah. We have three meals a day, and a lot of the times we have much more than we can actually eat. Take a look at the month of

00:03:51--> 00:04:32

Ramadan. Today, on our tables in the evening, when we were opening the fast Didn't we have much more than we could consume? Allahu Akbar. That's a gift of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us conscious of his gifts. What had happened then because it was becoming very difficult. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told his companions, they may go to have a shout out to Abyssinia once again, we made mention of this in a little bit of detail yesterday. And we said that they were at three men and 18 women who left for a senior at the time. And Jaffa palette was the Emir of them. And Quraysh did not stop there. They sent us with a team of people to

00:04:32--> 00:05:00

go to Naja, she's the necklace of Abyssinia. And as we heard yesterday he went and he told the negative that they are a group of people here from the people of Makkah from our people who have renamed from the religion of our forefathers and they are wanted back in Makkah, and they are criminals and so on. They have come to your land to seek asylum, send them back. And these people had come with gifts. gifts to give the king you know to give this leader of Abyssinia and after

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

sometime this leader Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had already told the Muslims he would be just he's a Christian men you will listen to you he will not oppress you. So he had asked Jafari Vitaly what he had to say. And after making it very clear as to why they were there, and as to the ignorance they were in before and how they were blessed by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being sent to them with the highest level of character and conduct and the highest level of worship. Allah subhanho wa Taala was to be worshipped alone, no sticks, no stones, no idols, no people, nothing besides Allah besides the maker besides the one that we will return to. So Naja, she, then

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

he allowed them to stay, and he told the people of Makkah to leave the parish. Ross was told to leave.

00:05:52--> 00:06:31

And guess what he was given back all the gifts to say, take all this away, and carry on. Because I didn't do what you wanted me to do here. It's like you came to me with a bribe. Take it back. Go away. Lo Akbar. Today when people take bribes, Allah safeguard us, even if they don't do your work for you. The bribe is eaten up, it's gone. We Allah safeguard us. Look at the honesty of the men, because they did not get what they wanted. He gave everything back. He says take this and carry on that was a just ruler, the ruler of Abyssinia Allahu Akbar. So they they slept the night and they thought of a plan. We mentioned this yesterday, I'm repeating it today. They came back and said, You

00:06:31--> 00:06:43

know what, oh niggas have ever senior. These people bless him, Jesus Christ. You know what? They say something very bad about Jesus May peace be upon him. So

00:06:44--> 00:07:28

he called jaffery Taliban, the Muslims and said what do you people say about Jesus? So Jafari, Abu Talib said Abdullah he was Zulu. Kalima to alcohol, Mr. Yamamoto from Minho. He is the worshipper of Allah, the slave of Allah, the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the ruler, his soul was blown into the Virgin Mary born without a father miraculously, that's what we believe, and so on. And he mentioned whatever he was taught about, he said, The Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him and Subhana Allah, what did he do? When he heard that? He said immediately? That is exactly what we know about the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. It's exactly what we know. Imagine this was the authentic

00:07:28--> 00:07:49

teachings of Christianity, coming from Africa, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. So he asked Jafari to read some of the Quran. And as we heard, yesterday, he read the verses opening verses of the surah named after Mary the Virgin Mary May peace be upon her, the mother of Jesus Christ may peace be upon him.

00:07:58--> 00:08:12

Rico, Rob Baker, who's okay he is nada, bamboo, NIDA and Javi Paula

00:08:14--> 00:08:17

Moomin me, washed,

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

sushi will

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

be shocking.

00:08:27--> 00:09:14

The story starts of zecharia alayhi salatu was Salam and how he made the dua in old age that Oh Allah, I'm not going to lose hope in your mercy grant me male offspring, and how then he had children and then Mary had a child as well and so on. And the entire story of Sally Salatu was Salam is mentioned but the opening verses were enough to make the tears of Naja she rolled down his eyes. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam revelation revealed to him that he and his men were crying when they heard the Quran. And the Quran says that they believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Although the joshy having accepted Islam did not inform his subjects have it and his people have it. He kept it

00:09:14--> 00:09:28

within later on in the year nine hijiri according to some of the narrations, and some say the eighth of ijarah Abu hurayrah Viola Han who reports in a hadith which is in Sahih, Al Bukhari that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

said one day that I have been informed that Naja she Your brother has hammer that was his name was us hammer and Naja. She is just the title. It's like a king. So as hammer and Naja she of Abyssinia has passed away your brother, let us get up and read Salatu genesis for him. And so they got up in absentia, and they read Salatu janaza for Najafi and that was evidenced enough to prove that he was a Muslim. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and may He take us away in a condition of Eman

00:10:00--> 00:10:23

So these people amruta house went away for your information, just something very interesting I'm gonna ignore us he came back to a senior sometime later, in order to try his tricks. Sometime later he came back. And he spoke to the Naja she once again and Naja she told him a few words and it is reported that that is when Islam into the heart of

00:10:25--> 00:10:59

Islam into the heart of America, which means within his heart, he already began to accept because he heard someone from Africa confirm that that is an A B, in fact exactly what happened was, he was told, he was told that the angel that came to Jesus and Moses is the same angel that has come to the man you are talking about, which is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this was witnessed by a man who lived very very far away, who did not even see an agenda, sorry, who did not even see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:11:01--> 00:11:43

Now, some make mention of the fact that later on he went to Medina menorah and accepted in the hands of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that was admirable, but those who have made mention of the fact that he accepted Islam, with Anna Joshi, there is something interesting if that was the case, then it's the first time that a Sahabi accepted Islam at the hands of a Tabby and we thought of that because Naja, she was a Tabby, he did not see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So if the narration is valid, then this would have been the case. However, the more common narration is that he came back and later on he spoke to Harley Denali, and just before the victory of mockery had come

00:11:43--> 00:12:05

in to Madina, munawwara and accepted Islam was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. So at that particular time, while the Muslims were being surrounded, and they were boycotted, and so on, Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu was suffering so much so much suffering, why? Because

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

no one speaking no one dealing nothing happening. He decided Allah has given me permission to go to a senior Let me go. So on his way out,

00:12:16--> 00:12:56

as he is progressing, going to a senior, he meets a man who knew him his name was able to do this, even though the one stops him. Yeah, Baba, where are you going? He says, I am now leaving my people, they are troubling us. They are not allowing us to follow and fulfill what we believe. So now I'm going to have a sham that perhaps Allah will open our doors there, and so on. He says, No, amen. Like you should not be going. You are an honorable man. You fulfill the rights of everyone your character and conduct is exemplary. You help the widows and the orphans and you assist those in need, you do not lie and so on, come with me, I will take you back to Qureshi and give them my

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

guarantee that they will not harm you.

00:12:59--> 00:13:39

And they should not harm you from my guarantee. So we went back with Abu Bakar city for the Allahu anhu. And he spoke to the leaders of Quraysh, who agreed on one condition, they said this man must not worship Allah openly. And he must not be saved the Quran openly because we've got rid of all of them. They're all somewhere in Parliament, this man he is going to come and he's going to read the Quran aloud, our daughters, our sons, our children, everyone is interested, they are already turning towards these words. And we don't want these words to be uttered. Again, we've just managed to solve the problem. So your information if you look at the list of names of Muslims, all these top chiefs,

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

their children were involved, they were already Muslim, all the big boys.

00:13:43--> 00:14:27

Their children were already Muslim and members of their family, either brothers, sisters, somehow relatives, very close relatives, were all already within the fold of Islam. So they they knew that something has drastic has to happen to block it, otherwise, we are dead. What was the problem? Why were they so worried? They were worried because they feared loss of power. They feared loss of wealth. They thought some authority is going to come above us and going to take us over and when we will lose all our dignity they did not know Islam gives dignity. It does not take it away. Allahu Akbar. So Ababa karateka. The Allahu anhu was free. And later on. He in the house he used to read

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

Salah outside in the little courtyard of his and people started flocking again. These people called Edna Devon after some time and told him Look, this man is breaking the promise. So when I came to him and told him, Look, I gave you my guarantee. And I gave the same guarantee to the people of courage about you. And now you're breaking the promise by reading the Quran outside. Everybody is coming to listen to it, and people are coming they don't want that. So either you stop it or I take back my guarantee. Ababa Casa de la I know what do you think he said?

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

He said take back your guarantee go back to them and tell them this I can't manage. So he went back he took the guarantee that is when they started harming Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. Even physically, the people of grace began to usurp wealth because they had got the Muslims into shape. So now their wealth was open, they began to usurp things and oppress in a huge way. Until one day, there was a group of people who saw, in fact, one man and his name was hishammuddin Muhammad. He was from koresh, not to believe him. And he saw his relative suffering. Because when muttalib and Banu Hashim were in she Abby Farley, being surrounded, boycotted, suffering, dying, and so on. And he says this

00:15:47--> 00:16:27

he shampoo hammer, he says to himself, like we can't allow this to happen. Let me think of a plan. These are our brothers and sisters, our blood, our real family. How can this happen? he thought to himself, Abu Jamal, who is the one who came up with the idea of boycott, had we come up with the idea of boycott about his family, he wouldn't have followed us. So why must we follow him? Look at this man, not a Muslim. This is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Allah Allah UAE, Doha the Dini bill Rajan, in fact, that at times Allah grants or gives support and strength to the deen by a man who is sinful sometimes by a man who's not even a Muslim, the example of Abu Talib he

00:16:27--> 00:16:55

cited the example of these, this young man, what did he do? He went to one of his friends zohaib, Nabi ommaya. And he says, exactly what he thought that look. Look at these people, they're dying. We need to break this treaty. I'm ready to break it this little covenant. I feel like going to the Kaaba and tearing it, ripping it to pieces in front of everyone. But I need one man to support me. So this man says, I'm with you. So now he went to a third man. And the third man was a longtime open ID.

00:16:57--> 00:17:33

And he told me the same thing. I need a man support to do this. I want to tear it rip it apart. Aren't you feeling compassionate against meaning towards these people here? Don't you feel in your heart? A little bit of mercy? He says yes. So he says, Okay, that makes now three of us love a cover. And he went to another one, a fourth one. The fourth one was above buster, even though he sham. And he tells him the same thing about buster. He says I'm with you. He says now that makes four of us low akubra. And he went to a first one look at this man and his tactic of thinking. If he were to announce it, it wouldn't have succeeded. But one by one, he went to those whom he trusts.

00:17:33--> 00:18:14

And he spoke to them on humanitarian grounds. So Panama humanitarian grounds, he says, look, we need to break this. This is barbaric. How can you prevent people from eating? How can you prevent people from food and drink and they are your blood? How? So now they went to the final menza even the last word and the five of them agreed. So zohaib NaVi omega says let's go to the Kaaba and we pretend like we are not connected, and I will stand up in front of Abuja, Hall and the others and I am going to announce that this is oppression against Manohar Shimon bundle muttalib. And I am going to get up and tear and rip this covenant which is on the Kaaba, and from today on it's going to be broken. And

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

when I say that, let's see what happens you all come in one by one to support.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

So this was happening on one front, on the other front, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:18:31--> 00:18:47

Three years have gone by we want to let you know that the end, the termites have eaten the covenant, nothing is left of it besides where the name of Allah was written. So it's eaten up in the Kaaba. It's in the Kaaba, but it's eaten up the termites. The mite has eaten it.

00:18:49--> 00:19:07

So he tells his uncle, oh, my uncle, this is what has happened. Uncle says, Are you sure? He says my Allah has told me? Allah has told me that's a guarantee it's not wrong. So Abu Talib is now in the vicinity of the Kaaba preparing to tell these people and in the meantime this man gets up now these are two narrations we brought them together.

00:19:09--> 00:19:45

So this man, so Hadith, NaVi Amaya, he gets up and he makes his announcement. We want to break the covenant we I'm going to do this and do that and Abuja Hall gets up and says, You dare touch it. So now he shall he gets up and says, What are you talking about? I agree with this man here. It is wrong, it is oppressive and so on. So a Buddha says who you think you are, and the third one gets up and says no, I also agree with these two what they are saying is right, and then a few people getting into the fourth one comes in the first one comes, and then Abu Talib says Hang on. This covenant has been eaten by ants and this was information given to my nephew by Allah subhanho wa

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

Taala.

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

Everyone is silence. The assignment. What is the silence? The covenant is eaten. So Quraysh get together quickly, and they tell obatala Okay, what if the covenant is not eaten, he says if the couple

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

intent is not eaten. I hand you my nephew, I give him to you. That's all they wanted. They wanted him to execute him. I hand him. And if the covenant is eaten, the boycott stops immediately. They agreed, and they struck that agreement properly. And then they look into the Kaaba, they see, lo and behold, it is completely eaten besides the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And these young boys were successful. And at the same time, the revelation that had come to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well, was completely accurate Subhana Allah still the boycott, Mashallah, it had stopped immediately, but they didn't believe. And what is of irony is Abu Talib himself also did not believe

00:20:43--> 00:21:26

yet. That's very ironic. And this goes to show that sometimes when Allah has not written guidance for someone, it will never come. It's our teaching. We are taught by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to constantly say, Allahu Miyamoto, libelle kulu kulu burner Allah de O Allah, O Allah, who turns the hearts, the one who owns the turning of the hearts, turn our hearts upon the right path, not away from it. Because Allah owns the hearts, we say Idina Serato, Mr. Kim, Guide us to the straight path because guidance is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If Allah sees the hearts, who is going to guide those hearts thereafter.

00:21:27--> 00:22:12

So May Allah open our doors, some people see the light, they see bright shining, but they don't want to take heed, and they don't want to learn lesson. So this was revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And these boys to panela. These youngsters of courage, they had succeeded, and the boycott was over. Very, very great degree. And what had happened at that particular point, Allah blessed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a blessing. The people of Magellan. Magellan was a distance from Mecca, Tomoko Rama, they were predominantly Christian people, they had heard about this messenger, and they decided to send a group of people, Mashallah to go and see this man, and to get

00:22:12--> 00:22:23

news and to see whether he's right or wrong. So, the Christians have nudged Iran since 20 men to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they had come out of the boycott.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

And they came and asked him questions.

00:22:28--> 00:23:09

And they asked him, they heard some of the Quran asking him questions, all 20 accepted Islam one go, they all accepted. Look, the people of Quraysh did not accept but people from far away came and accepted. This is what happens to the MBR of Allah subhanho wa Taala their own people boot them out. This is what what are often said, when you come with this message to your people, they're not going to listen to you, but the others further away will benefit from it much, much more than your own people. May Allah grant us really a lesson. I always like to make mention of the olema of your area. Every time they are Allah in your midst, make use of them. If you don't make use of them, there will

00:23:09--> 00:23:51

be others further away who will be making use of them and you will go without any form of goodness without having benefited when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala he will ask you, I kept so and so and so and so right near you as your neighbors. How did you not benefit from them? They had the message you didn't even get the message so ensure that you make use of the Allah in your midst May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. May Allah opened our doors. The lesson we have just learned is from what happens the people of Nigerian came What about the people of Mecca? His own family rejected the love of his own uncle and the others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not prohibit us. So Abuja looks at

00:23:51--> 00:24:20

these people of Nigeria, and he says you people are mad. How can you have come here? Ask one two questions and you accept when we live here and we know this man, and we will never accept so immediately Allahu Akbar, they responded. They said, Look, we have our choice we have chosen, you have your choice you've chosen and you know what we don't want to debate with someone who's a fool. And Allah revealed this to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam or either Samia la

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

Luna walaikum

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

salam aleikum?

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

Wa Heaney

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

when they hear the foolish person when they hear that which is vain, what Abuja Hall was saying,

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

when they hear that, which is when

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

they turned away from it, they turned away from it. And they said, We have our deeds, our choice, you have your deeds, your choice, and peace be upon you. We are not going to waste our time debating and arguing with you. So this verse was revealed in connection with the group that had come from Iran. And what the

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

Beat or what little discussion they had had with Abu Jahan May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us lesson. Then Allahu Akbar Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

of something very, very powerful, connected to

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

something that had happened that was very sad. On one hand, and the other hand, a lesson for all.

00:25:22--> 00:25:31

The uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fell in, he fell sick, and Quraysh they were happy, and they were sad.

00:25:33--> 00:26:14

They were happy, and they were said, they were sad thinking this man is going to accept Islam last minute. And they were happy because they thought to themselves once he's gone, we can nail this man. As we like, love. Allah protect us. This nephew, he was being protected by the uncle. The uncle dies, we can do whatever we want with this nephew. So they made sure they were around a Batali on his deathbed. He was now very old and sickly. And the Prophet peace be upon him who loved his uncle a lot, meaning he had great care for his uncle, his uncle cared for him. But when Islam came, he continued trying to convey the message of Islam to his uncle, his uncle knew what was right and

00:26:14--> 00:26:52

wrong. But he had not uttered the Shahada. He didn't declare, declare it may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us not only the utterance of Shahada, but the belief and the ability to convey to others I mean, so his uncle, the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam looks at him and says, Yeah, I'm Kelly Matson. Oh, ha, Jolla cabbie. Hi, Omar, I want you to utter one statement, so that I can fight your case on the day of PM, Allahu Akbar, you utter one statement, and the rest is mine, so to speak, say one word I will bear witness on the day of piano that you have uttered it, just say that there is none worthy of worship besides the maker and the one you are going to return to just say that, once

00:26:52--> 00:26:55

you utter that, I will do the rest for you.

00:26:56--> 00:27:07

Because you need to turn away from the idols and all what Quraysh was worshipping, and you need to come to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the uncle, he actually tells his nephew, oh, my nephew,

00:27:08--> 00:27:25

had it not been for these big boys around me, meaning the big people have arranged around me. I would have made you so happy by that statement. But if I now say it on my deathbed, it's going to be a great embarrassment. I will go down as a traitor in history to get this.

00:27:26--> 00:27:43

This is what the man says. If it wasn't for courage around here, I would be uttering and courage was waiting, meaning the hebbs they were waiting there because they knew we don't want tomorrow to hear that on his deathbed. He became a Muslim and we didn't know so we want to bear witness. We are going to be here right here.

00:27:44--> 00:27:56

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very sad because he kept repeating this, that Oh, my uncle utter one statement, just say la ilaha illa Allah and I will bear witness for you. Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:27:58--> 00:28:15

But the uncle passed away, when the uncle passed away without having uttered these words. The Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam was very, very sad, very, very sad. And this is when verses were revealed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. In nacala, da da, da, da da,

00:28:17--> 00:28:45

da, da me Russia. You do not guide whomsoever you wish, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we guide Allah guides whomsoever He wishes. Subhana Allah. So guidance is not in your hands. guidance is in the hands of Allah in your hands is to show the past, whether they work on it or not, is up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. You see he Daya is divided into two categories.

00:28:46--> 00:29:23

Like Allah says, we're in Nicoletta de la serata. Mr. Kim, oh Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you guide them to the straight path, which means you show them where the path is. But the guidance as in the ability to walk on that path that's only in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let's not confuse the two types of guidance. One is a Delilah or even a shadow. The other one is tofik, where Allah subhanho wa Taala gives acceptance to a person to walk on the path. A lot of us know what is right and wrong. But a lot of us are guilty of slipping here and there and doing that which is wrong and not doing that which we're supposed to. So this happens, May Allah forgive us and make us

00:29:23--> 00:29:57

strong. So to know what's right and wrong is one thing. But to walk on that path is another thing. So this was also a verse that was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam No, there was a very, very difficult time that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had gone through very difficult because his uncle passed away the people of Qureshi began, they already threatened now we're going to kill this man. And do you know abou colleague was the external support which means he protected Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from any external harm by the will of Allah.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

But something

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

What's happened? Khadija pentacle Wally through the Allahu Allah who was the closest to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his own wife, who was the biggest pillar of support and comfort, she also fell ill and passed away.

00:30:14--> 00:30:58

This was in the 10th year of Egypt, it became known as the year of sadness, because one after the other negativities came into place, what we would term negativities but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Although he was said, he knew what was planned, he was in the B, and he knew there is a plan. He knew that these words in this message have to go across wherever they are human beings, wherever they are men kind of Jim kind, the message is definitely going to reach he lost his uncle, he lost his wife. The uncle, as I said, protected him from external harm. The wife protected him internally comforted him. So he lost that inner comfort and the outer comfort zone that he had had

00:30:58--> 00:31:05

all along. This was a test. Now he thought to himself, Subhan Allah, the people of courage, they planning to kill me.

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

They want to kick me out. They want to

00:31:11--> 00:31:59

boycott, they want to surround they want to persecute they want to do so many things Allah mix mentioned in the Quran. What AVM gurobi can Nadine acabo de yusbi Taka ko Tanaka? Oh yo Cree joka Why am ko now I am kuruma these Kufa they are planning they were planning to keep you on one spot which means to ground you, number one or to kill you or to expel you. They were planning Allah plans and allies the best of planners. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought to himself, you see the people of pif, they are the closest people. It's the next city. The next city closest to Makkah, Tomoko Rama, not too far. Let me go there. And perhaps I will try with them. If I win their

00:31:59--> 00:32:35

support, perhaps we could come into orange and explain to them and perhaps they would then seeing how many people have thought if I have accepted Islam, they would embrace Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one hand, some of his people are going to ever senior, the other hand, people in Mecca Tomoko Rama being persecuted. And now what is happening, he takes they didn't haritha who was the closest person to him as well now? And he walks to a thigh. They went on foot. Why did they go on foot because had they gone on horseback Camelback, people would know these people are now leaving Mecca, they would get excited. They wouldn't allow them to go because they would

00:32:35--> 00:33:06

want him back. They did not want Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to go elsewhere. Because as much as they didn't like him, they knew that people from outside were coming and accepting the message. They knew it. So they were confused. These people have courage. One hand they say we're going to expel him another and on another hand. They say no, we're going to keep him here and ground him. We don't want anyone to talk to him. So Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam went to five when he went to five, he immediately headed for the leaders of five who were they

00:33:07--> 00:33:45

up Dr. Lin, that was one even ama and his two brothers, mushroom Nam and heavy with enamel. These were the three people he went to them he spoke to them he presented Islam to them. It is reported that in total he was 10 days in five. And he presented Islam to them in a beautiful way. And he told him about Allah and about the idols and about good character and conduct and not burying the girls alive and not engaging in misbehavior and misconduct and cheating and deceiving and wailing and being you know, robbing the traveler and so on. And he told them also of coration their persecution. Now these people

00:33:47--> 00:34:07

they did not accept the message number one. Number two is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him Okay, if you don't want to accept the message, no problem. But please do me one favor, don't tell Quraysh that I was here because if they know that I am seeking protection, and I'm seeking your assistance to go and fight them, then there is going to be a lot of trouble.

00:34:08--> 00:34:34

What did they do? They sent a messenger straight to Quraysh. This man he came to us and he is trying to win our support against you. The reason is the two of them have their squabbles. Now in order to settle it a little bit. They quickly went to tell to say you know what, this man here is the middleman here and we are going to deal with him. And in the meantime, these three instead of sending him away, respectfully to say look, we don't accept your message.

00:34:35--> 00:34:51

They sent the children and the slaves boys and girls out on the streets and told them stone this men and market Him and do whatever you want to him and nothing will happen to you. We are the leaders. We're going to sit here and watch.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

So as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had taken a message of peace and goodness to the people of life.

00:35:00--> 00:35:36

They retaliated with stones and sticks. They threw stones they hurled abuse. They made him bleed he was harmed, and he was hurt on his body, and the blood was now trickling in his shoes. His shoes were filled, and he is going out of Cardiff and they are running behind him, and they are felting him and they are laughing at him, as though they were pelting a dog out to Bella mela, save goddess, and this is the best of creation who came to them with a message of goodness, these were the people of setif.

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

And what happened? Allah subhanho wa Taala sent gibreel Allah is Salatu was salam to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a few pointers of mercy.

00:35:48--> 00:35:59

One is he says, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We have watched what they have done to you we know what they have done to you. You instruct us we will do to them what you wish.

00:36:01--> 00:36:30

When it is reported, according to one narration, although some of the scholars of Hadith say that this narration is morsel Mosel meaning the chain is not complete near the end. So, there was a man known as Adele. He was a slave of Aruba and shea butter, vanilla BIA, and they had had a little garden in Paris on the outskirts of Fife. So as Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was running out. He found a little shrubbery where the the grapes were growing, so he ducked underneath him in Zaidi.

00:36:32--> 00:37:04

And he noticed when he looked up, that it was a very hot day, but the cloud was covering him. So panela imagine a hot day, enemies from all over, but the clouds are not your enemies, the creatures of Allah besides men, not your enemies, and this particular group of people, they were cursed, imagine those hands that were pelting Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Personally, far worse than those hands that draw cartoons today, although both of them are equal in blessing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us.

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

So

00:37:09--> 00:37:52

how to buy and shave a pinata via the two sons of Arabia, they saw Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and these people are from Quraysh they had their their garden in five, and they looked and he saw this man in blood bleeding and they saw that he is helpless. no water, no drink no food. So, it is reported according to this narration that I have just made mention of which is Marcel It is reported that they sent the slave of theirs. They sent him with some grapes. Go and give that man just give it to him and come back. So when a does when there, he gave the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the grapes and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said Bismillah as he said Bismillah a deus looks at him and says,

00:37:52--> 00:38:37

What did you say? Whatever you said, Now the people here don't even say that. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, obviously I said In the name of Allah, and I'm eating In the name of Allah. Where are you from? And who are you? He says, I'm Adele. And I come from ninawa which is in Iraq. And there, so before he could utter more the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, that is the place where you no matter. You, us, the son of Matthew is from Eunice la Salatu was Salam. So I just was shocked. How do you know? How do you know? So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam read some verses of the Quran, where the story of unison is made mentioned, this ad does it is reported started kissing

00:38:37--> 00:38:50

the forehead of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he declared you're a messenger, you're a messenger. This is the one person who accepted Islam as he was leaving five. And now what's behind shaybah? The sounds of rabea are watching this at dusk.

00:38:52--> 00:38:58

And when he came back, what's your problem? How can you keep that man? And he is a man

00:38:59--> 00:39:40

whom you don't even know what did he tell you? So he said, Look, he told me something that only a prophet can know. That's it. They said, Be careful of this man and the duration ends there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, it is a manner that I I narrate to you or relate to you that that narration is morsel, which means the chain of narration of the writers is not exactly complete, but most of the books of history have made mention of the story of our deaths. So it's important for us to make mention of it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who realize who realize the true value of being Muslim. Allah has a great sacrifice has gone in getting this message

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

across to us and to the globe. But this was all by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then left but if and as he came back on his feet, he was working. He stopped at a place called Word inocula for a few days, and he used to read Quran in the night in salah and

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala told him later on that when you were in that valley of nakhla, a group of jinn approximately seven of the jinn had come and they heard you recite the Quran and Allah sent revelation to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling him the following

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

what is sort of

00:40:20--> 00:40:20

La

00:40:21--> 00:40:25

Nina Elgin? Yes Jamie Runa Lupo

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

from

00:40:31--> 00:40:31

C to

00:40:37--> 00:40:39

D add

00:40:41--> 00:40:44

in Nikita

00:40:46--> 00:41:49

da de mucho mucho de Lima by Nina de yeah D lol have been allowed to mustafi yato Manor ijebu de la mina ob Allahu Akbar, I will stop there powerful verses. Allah says, we had made the jinn come to you and listen to the Quran when they heard it, they attended and they said to each other, stop in silence and listen to what is being recited. When they heard it, they immediately felt and they knew that this is the guidance, they believed in it rushed back to their people meaning to Jim kind and told them all our gym kind we have just heard revelation after Moses, which is similar to that which he has brought and it is true and there is a messenger reciting it, believe in what he has brought

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

and indeed you will be forgiven.

00:41:54--> 00:42:02

The gym kind of saying this. So Allah says, hang on the jinn have believed if the people have told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to leave.

00:42:04--> 00:42:47

And they harmed him, these were jinn and they had accepted the message. But there is one thing that we need to know before this incident of the jinn. And that is as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is leaving, if I made mention of jabril coming to him and telling him you tell us what do you want the angels of the mountains, they came to him and told him all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam these people between these two mountains, you tell us we will crush them now you just tell us give us the instruction and we will deal with them. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he raises his hands. He says Allahumma inni escuela Kava Kava tea. Tequila, tequila tea. ohana,

00:42:47--> 00:43:28

alumnus, Oh Allah. Oh Allah. I am complaining to you about what about people about these people of five? We can destroy them. No, I am complaining to you about my weakness. Allah I'm weak you sent me too far. If I went to five they didn't even listen in courage. They're not even listening. handful of people. Yeah, Allah this is happening. Yeah, I am complaining to you about my weakness, and how weak I am Subhan Allah. And when this powerful messenger makes such a merciful remark, looking at his weakness rather than the weakness of the others, not even weakness, the sin of the others war crimes literally of the others.

00:43:29--> 00:44:12

But Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says No, It's me who's weak? No, no, no. Then he says, Allahu madico me for him now. What I want from you now. Yeah, Allah guide these people, guide my people because they don't know what they're doing. So the angel says to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we can destroy them. at that juncture. Do you know what he says? He says, leave them. Perhaps Allah will take out from their progeny, people who will accept my message. Imagine look at how he is thinking of the future, praying for the future, having hope for the future. And he is saying perhaps from their progeny, there will be people who will accept my message later on. You see

00:44:12--> 00:44:14

how thief accepted Islam

00:44:16--> 00:44:56

Subhan Allah today you go to tarrif Who is there? Not a single non Muslim, all the people of Thai Muslim. Imagine if sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam Muhammad, Abdullah had to say destroy them today, they would be ruins in life, we would see the ruins, people would probably go there and make a tourist site out of it. And this is the weakness with us. We see the ruins of the previous nations, we convert them into a tourist resort, not thinking that we are actually supposed to be learning a lesson from whatever has happened. You can go but unconditioned that you learning a lesson and it's drawing you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So when

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now returned we made mention of what happened with the jinn

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

As he's going into Makkah, they didn't want him in Makkah, he couldn't enter. Because now he was out. They didn't want him back in. They wanted to fight him and kill him because he went to seek assistance from others against Quraysh.

00:45:15--> 00:45:51

So at that juncture, he goes to a multimillionaire ID. And he says, Look, I need you to guarantee for me, or I need you to stand as guarantee for me so that I can enter into correlation. As we said yesterday, this was the norm at the time. They used to give guarantees for one another on certain grounds this man I guarantee and so on, and please let him in. So I'm okay with it. He's children got up with him. And it's reported some of his family members got aboard him, they took their souls and they took Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam right to the Kava, and allowed them to make a laugh around it. And the people of Croatia looking and saying, Are you just following or is he under

00:45:51--> 00:46:18

your guarantee? He says he's under my guarantee. SubhanAllah then they were quiet. They said if that's the case, we leave him alone. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam really had suffered at the hands of praise directly and indirectly. There was another incident that occurred also which was of great blessing. One man one man from those, those was a tribe. That was not so far. The people of those just one man had come up to File.

00:46:20--> 00:46:22

to file an AMA DOS, he had come

00:46:23--> 00:46:48

to see Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah. And he saw him and immediately he accepted he said, Yes, this is the messenger I believe, and I bear witness. Nabi Salatu, Salam gave him some good news, read some Koran for him, and told him Go back to your people invite them to Islam, I am making a dua Allahumma de dosa, O Allah guide the people of those. When this up to find libnah hammer went back to those.

00:46:49--> 00:47:26

he conveyed the message, and the majority of them turned to Islam, and majority of them turned to Islam. Do you know who is from dose for your information? A man who has narrated the most hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His name is Abdul Rahman Ibn Musa, more commonly known as Abu hurayrah. Today we quoted him also in our talk, Abu hurayrah. His his proper name is Abdul Rahman Ibn Musa, as we mentioned, Abu Bakar his proper name is Abdullah have known as men. So here you have Abdul Rahman, even Lusaka, Abu hurayrah, he was a doozy.

00:47:27--> 00:48:07

And he had also accepted Islam. And later on he met with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we asked Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah to open our doors and to grant us goodness. Now we have a very, very important incident that occurred at the time for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the Muslims. Remember this chin fear of hegira was known as amateurism. It was known sorry, the 10th year of Prophet would not hijra. I think if I've said he dropped, what I mean, here is Prophethood. Because as you know, there at that time, they used to use some big incident that occurred, and they used to count a year before it a year after it, like we said, the year of the elephants, the next

00:48:07--> 00:48:40

most important thing that happened was the year of prophethood. And the next most important thing was the year of HR. And up to today. That was one of the most important things that occurred. So we say history calendar, the calendar of Egypt, and we are sitting today at 14 133 years from that hijra. So, what had happened is, it was a year of sadness, the 10th year of prophethood, he lost his uncle, he lost his wife, he went to die if and he was beaten and he was literally booted out, and he came back from Cardiff and now he was in Macau.

00:48:41--> 00:48:46

And as a gift Allah subhanho wa Taala in the 11th year of Nevada,

00:48:47--> 00:48:53

granted him what is known as Elisa will Mirage, the journey by night and the ascension.

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

And

00:48:56--> 00:49:10

when did it happen? What was the date? The truth is there is no authentic narration giving us the precise date. So if someone says oh it is this date or that date, the reality is that is not an authentic narration.

00:49:11--> 00:49:39

The bulk of the Deakin say it happened in the month of Ramadan. Some of them say it happened towards the end of Raja, whatever be the case, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a lesson from that Neeraj. There's no point in debating this and that we need to look at what is not debated. The issue of Israel and marriage is not debated. So why debate about a little issue of the date? Let the date be something which is irrelevant for now. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the lesson. So

00:49:41--> 00:49:48

one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to sleep at the house of his cousin O'Mahony and

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

he as he was sleeping there jabril Allahu salatu wa sallam comes to him with a Barak and one duration says he was in the age of the age of meaning. The Hatim you know, they have

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

area in the in the vicinity of the cabin in fact it is part of the cabinet. We made mention of it the semicircular now, both narrations are correct because he was there and then he was brought here. So this is what happened. So he was at the house of O'Mahony and he was brought to where the well of Zamzam was. And when he was brought there, Subhan, Allah, something massive happened, something huge happened, the occasion of the journey by night, from Makkah, all the way to Jerusalem. And from Jerusalem, he was taken in Mirage, the meaning of marriage, marriage means an elevator, an elevator, that's the meaning of marriage. So the Brock's job was to take him from Makkah to Jerusalem. And

00:50:46--> 00:51:28

from Jerusalem mirage. The elevator took him all the way up with jabril la salatu salam, and how did he go up? He went up physically in body and soul, according to Allison ojama Subhan Allah, you know people inshallah, we will talk in detail about this tomorrow. But sometimes people say, How could he have gone up in such a short while? And how could he have gone up? Believe me today? We have rockets that take you into orbit within one and a half minutes, one and a half minutes you are in orbit? They tell you that? What What is impossible for Allah subhanho wa Taala. They say How could he have gone all the way to Jerusalem from Makkah in such a short space of time? Well, you have the Concorde

00:51:28--> 00:51:51

that goes faster than 330 meters per second. That's the speed of sound, it breaks the sound barrier and it takes you In fact, there is a bullet that travels even faster than that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant this lesson tomorrow inshallah we'll commence with the story of Israel and Neeraj until we meet again, what's on Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana labmd subhanak alohomora Hamdi Ganesha Allah Allah Elantra.
