00:00:00--> 00:00:32

When the Prophet sallallaahu salam was asked to deliver the message openly to a certain group of people, the people of Khorasan, the asherah, and you know, the, the clan of the prophet SAW Selim, he got hold of the top of the lot, and he gathered them at Safa. And he asked them the question we spoke about yesterday where he says, If I were to tell you that there there is an army behind me, the side of the mountain that you cannot see, and that they are ready to attack you, would you believe it? And they said, Yes, we would believe it. We've never known you to have lied not even once. Subhan Allah. And then what happened?

00:00:33--> 00:01:06

He says, Well, I'm warning you of a severe punishment that will come to those who disobeyed and you worship Allah alone, and so on. And Abu lahab gets up and he says, to Ben laka, yeah, Mohammed Ali hava jamatkhana. That would have been the mela safe goddess. You know, it reminds me of when you're young, and you're growing up and someone corrects you, and you say, Who the hell do you think you are? Even my father doesn't tell me this? That's a similar answer. Well, ah, it's a similar answer. You know, people get angry when you correct them. My brother, this is a thing. I love you, I respect you. But please, this is a matter I need to talk to you about. Who do you think you are? And why are

00:01:06--> 00:01:39

you telling me and I don't talk to you ever again. No, my brother Don't be like Abu lahab. Allah forgive us. It's not that bad. Okay. But at the same time, what we mean is, it happens that sometimes, especially young children, when they're full of energy, and you try and tell them a small thing, look, you know, you need to be respectful or don't do this, they immediately give you an answer. Let's not let that happen to us. May Allah safeguard us? So what he says, destruction be upon you. Luck won't be upon you. Oh, Mohammed, Is this why you gathered as you're wasting our time here? We are the leaders. We are the top shots, we own the whole of Mecca. Basically, we are the

00:01:39--> 00:02:23

ones whom nobody can tell anything. Who do you think you are coming to tell us what to do and who to worship? And a lot of them thought perhaps he's saying this because he just wants to snatch from them their leadership and their power and authority, perhaps their wealth and so on. He wants to impress No, it was a message of reality. So verses were revealed. Now that was a very big insult. Imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the most beloved to Him, who is Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, a mission to deliver a message and when he delivers that message, immediately one man gets up and he is related closely to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he swears in public, he tries to make a

00:02:23--> 00:02:23

disgrace.

00:02:25--> 00:02:41

What happens? You think Allah subhanho wa Taala leaves it never ever up to this day we read the verses of the Quran in that regard. Do you know that? Immediately the verses were revealed? Tibet? Yeah. da ba ba ba, ba ba ma?

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

Wanna say

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

one more to who

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

can help orbit Fiji De La Habra.

00:02:59--> 00:03:47

Subhana Allah, what powerful versus all against Abu lahab. And why were they reviewed? I met a man who told me how can the Quran have an entire surah which is denouncing a man? And I said What's wrong? The man denounced the messenger. So Allah is showing that that man is also denounced. That's all so but how can Allah curse someone so that is Allah subhanho wa Taala it's the Quran. If you curse Allah, you are automatically cursed. He doesn't need to curse you. You are cursing yourself. How can you curse your own maker He made you He gave you your life you'd be a fool lavaca May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So destruction be upon Abu lahab will be upon Abu lahab upon both

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

hands of his not just one
