Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka Allah. Mallanna ba ba Da Hua ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all his companions May Allah bless his entire household and May Allah bless every single one of us, and grant us all goodness and ease. My brothers and sisters, have Bobby Bonilla rot rot De La Hoya and this man has an amazing story. His name was hubub yBnL era when he was a young boy, he had come from Nigeria, in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula. And what happened is, there was a war that took place in Nigeria, when he was a young boy. And he the
enemy was victorious. So what they did is they enslaved the little boys and girls and whoever they was, and they sold them in the markets as slaves. So one of those who was sold in the market in Porush was this young boy known as hubub.
And a woman known as Omar alhuda, bought him. And what she did, she found that he was a very intelligent boy, but now he was enslaved. So she decided to send him to the top blacksmiths in koresh, to learn how to make swords. And he became a person at a very young age, he knew how to make swords, such that he was the best in the hole of courage. Or should I say, the best in the area, although he was not from courage. So the top leaders of Quraysh used to come to this young man in order to make their swords because he made the best. So even the leaders knew who hubbub was and they knew that this man ignore art. He is a slave of Omar. So one day as he was making one of his
swords, and some of the top brass of Makkah was standing near him. He was so happy, and he was excited. And he was saying to himself, you know what, what he is saying is the truth. So they looked at him and they said, What are you talking about? Who is saying the truth? He says, haven't you heard about what's going on here? So they said, What are you on about? What is it Who are you talking about now hubbub. Prior to this? He always used to sit on his own. He did not have many friends. And because he was from a farm, he used to think what Qureshi is doing is actually unacceptable. They are enslaving the little girls. They are burying them alive. Sorry, they are
burying their girls alive and at the same time, they are fighting with each other over small things. They are worshipping idols and whatnot. All this is wrong. So now that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had come out with the dean Habibullah was so excited. And he said, I always used to say to myself one day all this nonsense has to come to an end.
So he was so happy. So these people asked him, What are you talking about? He said, haven't you heard about Mohammed May peace be upon him? He is the Messenger of Allah, and he's calling towards the truth. So these they began or they became very angry. And they began to tell the others look at what this kebab is saying, until the brother of Omar, whose name was Subbu. Abdullah Abdullah Reza, what he did is he came along and he asked her
the question again, who are you talking about? He said, Look, I haven't said anything bad. I have not renamed from the religion of your father's forefathers because I never belonged to it. And I'm just following a man who's calling us to worship the maker alone, and to leave the idols and to be good and kind as best as we can. What is wrong with it? They beat him up thoroughly because he was a slave. And Quraysh knew that this man is going to be persecuted because he's got no relatives. We own him. So we will deal with him. How dare he accept Islam, and it is reported he was the sixth person to declare his Shahada number six. So what happened is, they started persecuting him in the
same way that they used to persecute Bella live Nora bahara, viola Han, who was also enslaved, but he was from habashi from Africa.
And suburbia and Lara was dragged in the hot desert rocks and sand such that the meat from his body began to come out and the bone was showing on his back, his ribs were showing and so on. And he says, I had none besides Allah. He said it was burning so much that the coldest or what was extinguishing the fire was actually my sweat. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us only because he said there is none worthy of worship besides my maker, and they kept on persecuting him and they kept on telling him Oh, hubbub as soon as you say I rejected
What Mohammed has brought, we will stop. He did not say that he did not say it. He said it's fine. You can do what you want. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day passed him once this was happening, and exactly what was happening was Omar had taken hot iron rods and heated them up in the fire, and she was burning his head with them. And he could do nothing about it. And he was fainting. You know, he was literally unconscious, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made it to our Oh Allah help hubbub, if not, Allah one. And hubub made a dua as well to say, Oh Allah protect me from Oman, Mara.
And a few days later, Omar became so sick that she started suffering headaches, those headaches had no cure. And she was a wealthy woman from Quraysh. And at the same time when she tried to go and achieve or receive medication to cure herself, they told her the only way your headache will stop is if you take a hot rod and heat it in the fire, and you burn your head with it. So they had to do it for her exactly how she did with kebab. And she was screaming and wailing like an animal May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us protection. Remember my brothers and sisters, when we harm others, that will come back to haunt us one day. So just be careful. Let your tongue be secure. Don't let it harm
others. Let your your the parts of your body be secure. Don't let them harm others, it will definitely come back to haunt you. It definitely does. No matter who it is on the globe. And no matter what type of persecution they engage in, against innocent people, they will pay for it at some stage May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us all. So at a certain time Subhan Allah hubbub arataki Allah and he was relieved of all this difficulty to a certain extent because people saw what was happening. He was the one who used to listen to every verse of Revelation. Last night we spoke about how they used to tiptoe at night in order to go away to learn more of the Quran. habenula The
Allahu anhu was one of them. And he was the one whom when Omar Malhotra the Allahu anhu entered the house of his brother in law, say the bin Zayed of the long run and saw his sister Fatima bentall hottub also known as Omar Jamila de la Juana and he beat them up hubbub about the Allahu anhu was in the house teaching them for an hour and he had hidden away because the Allahu anhu would have beaten him up. And when he heard
the Allahu anhu saying, Take me to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came out from his hiding place, and he declared the Kabira Allahu Akbar. He says, oh, Omar. I heard yesterday Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say Allahumma is an Islamic marine Oh Allah grant strength to Islam by one of the two Omar's either Amersham who was Abu Jamal Omar kebab ignorant says I heard that yesterday and that is why I know Allah will open your heart to Islam. Let's go to the beta to the house of alchemy outcome and they went to alchemy outcome This was kebab liberal arts. He was the one who used to teach them the Quran because he used to listen to every single verse so much so that
Abdullah His name is Audra the Allahu anhu says that when I had questions about the Quran, I used to go to hubub liberal arts to ask him exactly how to recite and exactly what was meant and so on. Subhana Allah. So this kebab, if you will, of the Allahu anhu was such a powerful man. We said that he used to make swords one day allows Noah, who was one of the tyrants of Quraysh had taken something from him and owed him money and refused to give him money because he was a Muslim, and allows him No one told him Hey, you are the one who says there is heaven, isn't it? So for Bobby says yes, there is heaven, there is hell. And there is a life after death. So I owe you money. I'm
not going to pay to you unless you just believe or when we are resurrected and I get my heaven then I will pay you whatever you want. So hubbub even though it was a very poor person, he needed the wealth and he says, How can you say this? Meanwhile, verses were revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Tella de Kapha Robbie. Tina call Allah O.
Allah O Allah. Akbar Allah Al amin
kelas annex Toma
Amina Lada be mad.
Allah says do you see the one who disbelieves in our signs and he's saying that when he dies, he will start getting wealth and children and then he will make the payment back. Referring to allows him to walk in with his story with Bobby Bonilla.
Allah, Allah says Nay, we will write down what he is saying and we will punish him severely. Now I want to tell you if the Quran has made mention of a particular person's punishment, it means that person will not accept Islam. It's over. Like Tibet, Yoda Abdullah have been watabe once a Bula hub was cursed in the Quran. Everyone knew this man is never going to accept Islam because the Quran it's there forever. And once Allah Allah subhana wa l was cursed here and Allah said he will be punished, it's over. You do not need to expect that this man is going to turn to the deen May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from amongst those whose hearts are hardened and may never punish us.
So this was the man he used to listen carefully to the verses of the Quran at the time of Omar Abdel Fattah Benares man, even a fan Ravi Allahumma.
He was given such a high monthly salary because he was known as a sub akuna illa Islam, one of the first few to accept Islam. So he had a surplus of wealth, so much so that when he was living in Kufa, Habib urato, the Allahu anhu, he decided to build a very small house, and he had a special place that he built where he would keep his money. And all the poor people knew that if you want any money, you can go without permission into the house of hubbub into the specific room into that corner and take what you want. He has said everyone can take from here if they need and they do not need my permission. That was a Bobby, Bobby alone imagine. Recently I was reading of how some people
in the Middle East have now understood that there is a lot of wastage of food. And what they've done is they have big freezes outside their houses where they put the remainder of their food and anyone is free to come and take from that food and Mashallah it's working and it's working wonders. inshallah, I hope it can be implemented in more places where the leftover food we have is not wasted. My brothers and sisters, we've always been pointing at the middle east because we noticed what goes on. But Mashallah, right now. We are happy to hear that something is being done in order to make sure that that food is not actually wasted, I hope and I pray, we in our own little ways, do
not waste food and drink. There are others across the globe who do not have food, drink or shelter or clothing. And yet we are wasteful May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us. So this we learned from kebab Arathi Allah when he was a man who when he died, he was crying at his deathbed. At his own deathbed. People asked him why are you crying? He says on this day I am remembering Hamza Abdulmutallab, when we were burying him there was not enough to do and shroud him with look at what I have. And he he was trying to say I have actually built a house here. I can't believe I've spent money in this world. That's what he used to say. And he said I have 80,000 silver coins that are in
this place. Anyone who needs them, please take them. He says I bet I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bear witness that I've never ever refused anyone who's come to ask me, even if he's asked me and I felt in my heart this man needs or he does not need I made sure I gave him something. May Allah accept it from me, he says, and he says May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant me forgiveness wherever I have wasted wealth yet he was a person who did not waste. This was kebab even a lot of your loved one. He was the one whom Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus regarding three of the companions more so of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam amongst others who were slaves before and they were
freed in Islam. So hey by Rumi or the Allahu Allah Subhan Allah tala Juan, blah, blah, blah, the Allah and the co founder of coration. The leaders used to say, this man, we don't mind accepting your message or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam on condition that you chase away those who used to be our slaves, we are embarrassed to sit with them. So a lot of you versus while ah todo de la Vina their own Allah.
ma la camisa beam.
A woman I mean, he's a big guy.
federal, federal Khun Amina volley mean. waka Delica fatten bah bah hum. So many verses thereafter until Allah says what either.
Can Lavina you mean? Oh, Nabil, Tina, Salah
buco mala and I've seen Rama. Allah says do not chase away those who are calling out to Allah by day and by night referring to these poor people. Allah says their account is not on you and your account is not on them. Allah is speaking very highly of these poor people telling Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam don't chase them away. And Allah says when they come to you, these people who believe greet them with a Salah.
Allah, clearly Subhan Allah. So Mohammed salatu salam used to give a lot of importance to Bill Olive naraba so haber Rumi tabula rasa and the others whom Qureshi used to consider downtrodden.
And this is when Quraysh understood that with Mohammed Salatu, Salam and Islam, no difference between black and red and white, no difference between the rich and the poor, everyone will sit together and everyone has exactly the same access to their maker, male, female and all the others may Allah subhanahu wa taala help us protect us from racism and from this feeling of inferiority, which will actually result in our downfall. So we have a lot to learn from hubbub. Malati passed away 37 hugely in Kufa at the time of Ali ibn Abu Talib rhodiola Han and He is buried there may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless him. The next hero we are going to speak about the best of all the
Warriors ever that the Muslims had the name of holiday Villa de radi Allahu anhu. He was known as Abu Sulayman, the father of Sulaiman holiday movie era. His father was actually the movie al masumi. He had a son known as Khalid he had another known as Al Walid he had another known as Amara, and he had another known as he sham. All of these were children of Al Walid. Al Walid was a very rich man, the father of college, very, very wealthy. And he was a person who used to donate the covering of the Kaaba one year and the whole of Quraysh used together to make it the following year, every year they used to change the cover of the Kaaba one year alwaleed used to give it and the other year, the
whole of Christ together used to give it that's how wealthy he was. And he was known as one of the leaders of bluma zoom, the masumi clan, he was one of the leaders, so his sons who grew up very wealthy and Harley was a big man, powerful, muscular person. He was quite fair in complexion and he was very close in looks to Maribel katapola one, and he as a youngster, he was approximately 20 years younger than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam he did not like Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Why? Because he felt that this man is competing with my father alwaleed era when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to talk to him, he used to say, I am more befitting to have been a prophet
than you. Who are you and why did Allah reveal to you You are an orphan, you are a person who has nothing. I am one whom Allah gave so much I am supposed to have been the Prophet. So Allah revealed versus well con una una nosey. La
la la la. Mina Laconia De Niro me a homeopathy Muna Rahmatullah big no Carson,
Phil hayati, dounia, waterfurnace.
Raja Allahu Akbar, Allah speaks about what actually did know mahira and the others were saying that why did Allah not send down Prophethood to a powerful man from Makkah or from tarrif? Why did he have to send prophet to this man in particular, who was an orphan from amongst us? Allah answers them and says, Are you the ones who are in charge of distributing the gifts of Allah? Are you the ones who are in charge of distributing the mercy of Allah? Allah says, we are responsible to give whomsoever we wish, and we have raised some above the others in virtue, and in goodness and in wealth, and in everything else in this world for many reasons in order to be a test for you. May
Allah bless us all. So this was a response but it's a lesson for us. We become jealous when someone does well, well in business that is competing with Allah, Allah replies, you hear, and he says, Why are you jealous? Are you the one who gave or did I give? When someone is knowledgeable and they are doing a lot of good work, we become jealous, if that is the jealousy we have. Allah says, you want to be in his shoes. Well, you need to understand we blessed him. That's exactly what happened with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he lost because he wanted to compete with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So when someone has wealth when they have children, when they have goodness, my
brothers and sisters do not become jealous, like the co founder of Quraysh do not become jealous like those who want to compete with the gift of Allah because it is a last decision to give whom he wants, what he wants, how he wants, when he wants, it's not our decision. So unbelievable movie, I was very angry. So Harley Denali, he looked at his father, and he always used to say, I will never adopt what Mohammed has brought, because he is competing with my father. He looked at it as competition, right and wrong has nothing to do with competition. Even if your enemy tells you something that is right, as a Muslim you adopted because it is right. And even if your friend tells
you something that is wrong, as a Muslim, you reject it because it is wrong. Whether he's your friend or your enemy is something which is completely separate. But what is wrong
And wrong is primary. May Allah bless us and grant us ease. So Carly didn't know Waleed was brought up in a powerful home a strong man. He was very brave. And he was a person who was tall, well known in Quraysh as a warrior from a very early age. Now, Ali did know mahira May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us from that type of attitude that he had.
He had a son, the son's name was actually another one in the Battle of Badr, actually tirunelveli was taken captive by the Muslims. And they called for a ransom to free him. And they asked for 4000 dirhams, which was not much actually. But it was a lot in terms of two, three a captive, and they said, the lowly. This man's father has a lot of money. And he has caused a lot of harm against the Muslim so Harley Davidson Valley, and hishammuddin. And when they came to the way the Muslims were in order to free their brother, and they had paid the ransom, and they took their brother away. When they took their brother away, he went to Mecca. And after a while, he announced he was a Muslim, and
well he didn't worry. So he was in captivity, he saw the Muslims pray. He saw how they operated, how they respected one another. He saw the beauty in that faith whilst he was captive. And he loved it so much. So they asked him why didn't you accept Islam whilst you are a captive? So Ali didn't when he says How could I accept Islam when I was a captive, people might think that my intentions were wrong, and I just wanted to be free. So I waited until my father paid the ransom, and I left now I'm accepting it as a free man, because I want to tell you, it is definitely the truth. And he went back to Madina, munawwara and he became one of those who was very close to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wasallam. So one day, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously spoke to him and we will get to that what did Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tell and willy nilly regarding his brother Khalid Ali, this was after the Battle of butter, what had happened at holiday Valley, they had come and do you know, he was on the side of the kuffaar, of the enemy of the of Quraysh. Those who had usurped the wealth of the Muslim in so Holly didn't acknowledge it. At that time, he was not a Muslim. He looked at the arches, and he saw that these people have left their positions. So immediately, he took a group of men, and he went back and swipe the Muslim mean by sandwiching them between the enemy, and this is
when the Muslims suffered a great loss at the hands of Harley Davidson Walid May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. And may Allah grant us a lesson, because the people had not obeyed the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Holly, the lead was known as the hero of all heard from the from the Qureshi, or from the kurayoshi perspective, from the perspective of the co founder of Mecca. Now, after that, Khalid Ali came for the Battle of the trench, you know, the Battle of the trench that took place a year and a half later, what he did this, he was responsible for executing Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he was given the task, you need to watch for Muhammad
Sallallahu Sallam and get rid of him. So as he went, he tried here and there but you know, there was a trench that was dug and he just could not get to Mohammed Salah Salem. It is reported that as he tried to get there by night, who say didn't obey the law and had immediately noticed and alerted everyone and the plan was foiled. So Holly didn't usually though the Allahu anhu went back to Makkah with those who had lost in the battle, it didn't really take place because obviously the wind had come and I'm sure we would know the Battle of the trench, the kuffaar was sent back to Makkah, miraculously by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Khalid, the leader of the Allahu anhu, at the time of
the day, BIA, when the muslimeen had come out without any weapons in order to make the pilgrimage in Makkah, the co founder of Makkah, stopped them. They had sent Harley, the Denali with 200 men to go and attack the Muslims. But when he went, he saw that they were praying, they were praying, and he thought to himself, okay, I've got 200 men, why as these people go to their prostration, I will swipe at them. But he was shocked that Mohammed salatu salam, when he said, Allahu Akbar, and everyone went to sujood, half of them went to such that and the other half stayed up. And then when he said Allahu Akbar, half of them came up, and half of them went down, and he was saying, What is
this all about? That was Salah to have specific Salah prescribed at a time of war, when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was given this gift because Allah says
that these people had intended for you to all be in prostration at once so they could swipe at you. So some of you go down and some of you stay up. When some come up, some will go down and so on. It's a beautiful salah and it was a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that is the time Khalid milliliter of the Allahu anhu in his heart. The first light had entered he
says Roger Lumumba, that means this man Mohammed, we will never be able to harm him impossible. I am a man, I have mastered the military arts completely. I cannot even get close to him for some reason. And so in his heart, he said, This man is going to lead and he's going to be the winner and he's going to be victorious. This is what Harley tells us later about the law. And
so after her debut, he went back and he received the letter from his brother and willy nilly. And the letter said, Oh, my beloved brother Harley.
I always know you to be a very intelligent person, and as intelligent as you are, it cannot escape you that Islam is correct. With that mind of yours, you are such a powerful person in intellect. The Prophet has been asking about you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told me where is Khalid Where is Khalid and I told him in sha Allah, Allah will bring him along. He says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a man like Khalid, who is so intelligent, anyone who is absolutely intelligent will know that Islam is correct. If they are unbiased, they will know that what the Muslims are calling to and what they are worshiping is actually correct. They are calling towards
worshiping one maker the maker alone and doing good all your life. And this is what is correct. So Harley mill when he read the letter, and he was touched by it, because now one thing had happened at her day before and after her day via this was the second thing. The third thing, he slept that night, and he saw a dream, the dream of holiday milliliter of the Allahu anhu He says, I saw myself on a piece of land that was dry and very, very narrow. And then I saw that I was traveling to another beautiful green piece of land, which was very broad. And he said, when I got up, I knew it means go to Madina, munawwara and that is Islam and Allah has chosen Islam for you.
So he decided to speak to his friends who were his friends. Now, it was quite tricky to talk to them because they all hated Islam. The first one, he had a friend, and this friend was quite close to him so far, and
he tells a 101 What do you think of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam I've tried so much the man you cannot get close to him. I believe he's going to win one day and he's going to overtake everyone, the Arabs and the non Arabs. And I think it's about time we went. So someone says no ways never Are you crazy. What are you talking about?
That is because of one if no Maya had lost his father and brother
and so he decided okay, he told so fine. Okay, forget what I said. It's okay. Just forget about it. And he went to the son of Abu Jamal and told him exactly the same thing. And it crema responded in the same way, the son of Abu Jamal, he says no ways are you crazy. He says Okay, forget about it. Then he went to a third friend of his by the name of earthman, Abu talhah.
Tell him they are two or three different names, perhaps they are referring to the same person or one may be referring to the nephew and one may be referring to the uncle, because Uthman Ibn otol hat is one man. And man it
may be the same man or may be the nephew. But whoever it was, this was
a friend of Harley Davidson worried. So when Harley told him eventually that let's do this, let's go to Medina. I'm really feeling to go because of these reasons. He said, Okay, I'm coming with you. Let's go Subhana Allah, amazing. So quietly, the two of them prepared everything and they decided to do hegira without anyone knowing they went and on the way as they are going, they saw one of the powerful men of courage by the name of amaryllis, the man who later conquered Egypt.
He was one of those who went to Najafi if you recall on behalf of Quraysh and he was speaking about Jafar Ibn Abu Talib. That was a man inshallah we will talk about him in a few days time. But Khalid Ali and this man are smart. They met him and they asked him or armor Where are you going? Or he asked them, where are you guys going? So they said no, we want to know from you. So Khalid, Allahu anhu was brave enough. He said, You know what? We are going to accept Islam and we're going to Medina. He said, guess what, I am going to do exactly the same thing. Subhana Allah, they arrived in Al Madina, munawwara, the leaders of Quraysh their children now are here. And they came and as they
were entering Medina, Allahu Allah tirunelveli. It sees his brother and rushes to him. He says, voila, he the messenger. sallallahu alayhi wasallam already informed us that you are on your way. Imagine the miracle of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam already informed his companions that Holly did. Neil Walid is on his way to come here. Subhana Allah. He says, amazingly, let's go the messenger is waiting for you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the three of them walk into the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the greeting itself spoke a mountain.
He says As salam o Allah Rasool Allah, may peace be upon you or messenger of Allah. This was hardly the Mill Valley, the men whom they all wanted to kill him or her because of how many Muslims he killed.
And yet, Kali didn't know he greets him as rasulillah and
and remind him Natal ha, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says, Look, this is Quraysh it has brought to you its liver, meaning it has now thrown out to you the most important part of its organs.
Amazing, and so highly dependable. It says I declared the Shahada in front of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but there was a problem that I had in my heart. What was it? I felt that I killed so many Muslims and now look at what's going on. I caused so much harm against Islam. So he said, I looked at Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and I said, Oh messenger, please pray for me. I have caused so much harm against the Muslim mean what will happen to me May Allah forgive me? That is when Mohammed says yeah, Khalid in Islam I a Jew buma Kabbalah Oh, Khalid, I want to inform you that Islam deletes the sins that were committed prior to it. So it doesn't delete all your deeds. It only deletes your
sins. Remember this? You don't start with a new leaf. You start with the leaf that only has good on it amazing. If you did good before you accepted Islam, it will come through even after you accepted Islam, but if you have done bad that is what is wiped out. Just like my brothers and sisters. Toba does exactly the same thing. It wipes out the bad and it leaves the good May Allah grant us repentance, because repentance does exactly the same thing. towba the meaning of witches repentance and turning to Allah. So this was Khalid evening when he he heard the statement once it was not enough, he heard it twice. It was not enough. He heard it a third time. Then he says, Oh messenger.
I pledge my allegiance to you. They it is here you are I am hardly even worried and I've come to you here we are Subhan Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made a draft for him. He says, Oh messenger for every harm that I've caused Islam, pray for me. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Oh ALLAH forgive Khalid for everything that he has done against Islam, Subhan Allah, this was the acceptance of Islam of holly the milliliter of the Allah when he took part in the Battle of Mata immediately after that, and remember, we spoke about how there were three leaders appointed by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Zaid, Ebony haritha Jafar Ibn Abu Talib, and Abdullah have Nora hora de
la and home and Prophet sallallahu Sallam said they will lead one after the other, all three of them lost their lives. Then Savage northcom went and took the flag, the flag of leadership and he gave it to Harley Davidson when he
was a new Muslim. And he said no ways I am not going to take this you have actually taken part in sabotaging the outcome I am not from amongst those you'd rather carry. So 30 sabotage, no outcome looks at the rest of the companions on the day of motor. And he says, Do you agree that Khalid is the warrior from amongst us, who knows best how to tackle the enemy and he shall lead us and they all agreed. So that is when Carly took it and the battle changed its course and they came back to Medina Subhana Allah having achieved quite a bit in water, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them all goodness and grant as to a lot of goodness. So this was the man Khalid mindvalley every single
army he was in, he won his battle, without exception, so panela so much so that today, the military schools of the West, they study the life of Harley Davidson Waleed, there are so many movies that you will find that are after Harley Denali wrote the Allahu anhu in his life that are studied very carefully by military schools of the non Muslims and the Muslims across the globe. He was an intelligent man, extremely intelligent, hardly the leader of your loved one.
So at the time of the victory of Makkah, he was the only man who was the newest in accepting Islam, who was put as one of the leaders of the army of the Muslim men, because Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was there himself aboard obey the AMA blue Jarrah was put in the front as debatable. One was to the right side. And guess who was on the left? Holly didn't really didn't move here, a child of Quraysh, who had just come, he was going back to Croatia as victorious. And he had told those youngsters already that Mohammed salatu salam is going to win. He's going to overtake and he's going to rule everywhere here. He used to tell them at that stage, that you know what, it is an honor for
us to accept Mohammed, he's a part of Quraysh Why are we jealous of him? He's one of us. What a powerful statement. I think we can learn from that. Sometimes we had us the children of our own community, not realizing that if they are a part of our community, by us harassing them, we are actually doing our own community a disservice. Rather, we are proud of the achievements of our country, our community and the oma at large. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us understand what was the statement of Harley Davidson anyway
He took part in a so many battles that people began to say Khalid is the warrior Khalid is the man Omar Abu Qatada. The Allahu anhu came in and said, I don't like the way people are now thinking that Khalid is the big magician who wins all the wars. So all about Aveda, I wrote, he wrote him a letter and said about obey the rule of law. Go and tell Khalid that he must come back to Medina no more taking part in the war as a leader. He's just a normal Muslim, and you go and overtake so about obey the law. If you recall a few days ago, we said he took the letter to Harley, the leader of the law one and he gave the letter after the war was over. Harley Davidson immediately said no problem. I'm
going back to Madina munawwara so Omar said I did not remove Holly because I had a problem with him, but I am removed it him because people started believing that it is him and we believe it is Allah.
So this is why there were others who are placed in the place of
the Allahu anhu at one stage, and this is Harley didn't leave. On his deathbed four years later, just four years after the Allahu anhu had removed him. He was on his deathbed. And he says, well, Allah He There is not a single spot on my body, not a single spot on my body that does not have some form of wound on it. My entire body has wounds all over my face, my head and my entire body. And yet, I am dying on a bed and not on the battlefield. So those who are cowards must learn a lesson from me that Allah subhanho wa Taala if he has written debts for you, you will die no matter where it is. I took part in so many of the battles, but Allah decided you will die in the way that
the camel dies, these are his words.
Then he says Subhana Allah, Holly the vanilla lead was known as safe Allah the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was sitting in Medina during the Battle of mortar, we made mention of it the other day, when we said that he's the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was given the knowledge of the unseen on that day to be able to see that the Khalid Meanwhile, he has now taken over the leadership of the army in mortar. And he says, a father who say from means,
he says, The Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said a sword from amongst the soldiers of Allah has taken over the reins of the Muslims. So imagine if Carly didn't allow and who was killed in the battlefield, people would say the sword of Allah is broken. So Allah choice was that he must not be killed in the battlefield. He was on his bed, he died a natural normal death. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us a lesson. This was Harley Davidson when he passed away in hymns, and He is buried in hymns which is in Syria. May Allah grant us peace in Syria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in all the countries in Gaza and in everywhere else may Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant us peace and goodness, my
brothers and sisters, I end with something important, highly dependent on either the Allahu anhu on his deathbed made the most famous statement that we know about him.
He says, Shaolin in Jihad Wang Lumi. Kathy remains on. He says I was busy in the battlefield, I was unable to learn much about the Quran, Subhana Allah, but I have no regrets. Allah has chosen me to fulfill a part of Islam. I have to stop there. It is the most important lesson we learn. Not every one of us will be masters in the Quran. Not every one of us will be professionals in Islamic knowledge we have from amongst us, doctors, accountants, we have men of different disciplines and women whom we need in our society and the community. We do not underestimate the value of one another. We should never think I'm the only Muslim who's serving Islam. No matter who you are and
what you have. You may serve Islam either through your profession, through your wealth, through your knowledge, or through a combination of more than one of those things. Do not ever think that the work you are doing is the only word of Allah, Allah His Messenger, because that would be an insult to Allah having brought down the spectrum of Islam to one job that you are doing no ways. There are 100,000 ways you can serve Islam. If you think there's only one way you have insulted the other 99.99 9000 different ways of supporting Islam. May Allah grant us ease and help us to love one another. To understand how much we need one another. Brothers and sisters this love that we should
be feeling for one another is such that really we should have a smile on our faces when we see each other. May Allah grant us unity and goodness. May he help us develop our hearts and feelings towards one another. May he help us appreciate the different works of the different people who are serving Islam in totally different ways. And may we be never be people who think that we are the only ones who are serving Islam. May Allah safeguard all of us.
