peace be upon all of you. And on behalf of the Muslim Students Association at the University of Waterloo, I'd like to welcome you all for the final event of grammar registry for this term.
It's really, really an honor to see so many people show up. And I'm very happy to see many of the Muslim and non Muslim friends in our community coming for this event. So thank you once again.
The topic of today's lecture is based around the Danish cartoon controversy. I'm pretty sure most of you heard in September, the Danish one of Denmark newspaper, Gillian Poston had actually published a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam peace be upon him in a very derogatory way. And as you all know, that sparked a whole lot of controversy, the past reaction from Muslim Muslims all over the world protested against the Danish newspaper against the Danish government.
So one can judge the process has been the first stage of the reaction. So the process let people know that Muslims are angry about this. But the second stage hasn't really reached yet again, why are Muslims angry? Who was the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu letterland peace be upon him for and that's, that's the intent of today's lecture, inshallah, to speak about the life of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Upon we have the honor to have speaker quite some gratitude. Our speaker today is Shaykh Muhammad Shetty. Muhammad Al Sharif was born in 1975. Raised in Canada, in his youth, he members of Iran, and later graduated with an Islamic law degree from the Islamic
University of Medina, class of 1999. He is the founder of almagest Institute, through which he teaches university level seminars on his alma mater Alma Institute seminars have been conducted across the United States and Canada, as well as in Australia. While we continue to teach Shaykh Muhammad Nawaz Sharif now devote much of his time to recruiting, training and advising other students of knowledge in becoming Almagro Institute instructors. Being a true visionary, with exceptional talent in motivating others, Mama dancer, he has also founded a man with audio and clickbank.com and actively keep in touch with the online community at the Almagro.
Currently, he lives with his family in Ottawa, Canada. Now before I ask you to welcome the speaker, I just want to explain the format for today's event will obviously start off after I'm done. We'll start off with the Shaykh speaking after he's done his lecture, we're going to have a break for four minutes and 52 seconds.
And in that race, you know, you guys can have some coffee and snacks and whatnot. And then you start the question and answer period inshallah. Now, the question and answer period is going to work different from our previous two lectures. We'll be going by written question. So during the lecture, shake mama Sherry brings up something interesting and you feel that you want to ask him something on that. Then we have volunteers walking up and down the aisles, and they have cue cards with them. Please just put it Put your hands up in Africa and you can write your question down on them. If you feel that the question answer period has not answered all the questions, you want to pass them
comments. By all means, feel free to after the event is over. So I hope I made myself clear on that. So without further ado, please join me in welcoming Sheikh Mohammed Al Sharif.
I want to go
minister by reciting some verses of Quran
although the Lahaina shavon
was born whoa ha
begin in the name of a lot on a welcome everybody here Muslims and non Muslims
I grew up here in Canada, and we have this kind of like this belief or thing that we're taught, we're taught to question everything correct? Is that what you're taught in public schools and stuff like that? Question everything?
Except the teacher who told you to question everything.
That's the one thing that you don't question
is the principle that everything is questioned. And so that's the way we're taught. And so a lot of people go through life confused, because even when they start believing something, then they keep going, Oh, you need to question that. So they go through life, confused, confused, confused. And so I remember when I went overseas and studied overseas, I studied in Medina, Medina is actually the city where the Prophet peace be upon him, migrated to and he's very good. And so I had the opportunity to live in Medina, the holy city of Medina for six years. And I remember one day sitting down and taking a book of the statements of the Prophet peace be upon him, which is called a deep in
the statements of the Prophet peace upon him, and began memorizing them. One of the above the second, for those who know it's called, and now with 40, Hadith write a compilation of some of the most important things of the Prophet peace be upon him. And
about the second third heavy thing in the province of a lifetime. The narrator the one who's actually mentioning the point, and mentioning what the prophet peace be upon him said, there's something so beautiful, and it hit me like a diversity in your eyes, kind of like
he said, that the Messenger of Allah, upon whom he said, and then he made an additional statement, he said, Well, who are possible.
And he is the truthful one, the one who humanity is telling the truth.
And so the reason I say it hit me so hard, because up until that point, I was in like this mode of
And it hit me so hard, because that is the Messenger of Allah. And so when you were thinking about the Danish cartoons and, and why something like that provokes so much energy in the Muslim community, they don't realize the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is to the Muslim. He is, he is the figure that is closer to a person than their mother and father.
And he's not a father to us. He's not a political leader. He's not any of those things. If you can with me for a moment, imagine his picture, to Muslim, he is a messenger from God.
There's a lot is that and when I realized that it needs to be upon him. And that's something that we say every time we mentioned his name, we committed Peace and blessings of God be upon him.
And so it's that quote, there is no one
Right? That's a big claim. But you would ask them, Do you hate the process?
If no one will ever say it.
Because the whole point of someone entering into the Shahada, the main statements of entering into that is, there is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Technically, if someone didn't believe in the profit for the life, they're not even Muslim.
And so their basis their whole life, they're living, they're dying, their prayers, all of that is based on the teachings of the prophets of Allah de Sena PC upon passed on to it. And so that's giving you a little glimpse. And now what I wanted to do is I know some of these are some away lectures.
A lot of basics are done right. basics are done. And
for a lot of the audience, they already know the basics. So for the Muslims who are present, they don't really learn that much other than Oh, we hope the nominal benefits and then some of the non GMO foods that are in the audience, they know the basic
right? So then the lecture just gets wasted is not really effective. So what I wanted to do is take one
To take you on a little journey, and there's so much that can be said, but I want to take you on this little journey of who the Prophet peace be upon him was from the angle of the trials and tribulations that he went through, to pass on.
And so for the Muslims in the audience, that one of the benefits that they get is remind themselves, of how much the Prophet peace be upon him went through, in order that today, 1400 years later, you still have it,
in its original form preserved for you to, to learn and to study and to practice, and come closer to about come close to God for the non Muslim, you start to realize who the Prophet peace be upon him was, and who was in actuality causing the trials and tribulations at that time
to begin the Prophet peace upon him.
He was born,
he wants after his father died.
right from the very beginning, from the very beginning, he never knew his father.
Even as I mentioned these things, what I wanted to do is,
is take the trial and the tribulation as if it had happened to you. Right? For a lot of times, it's interesting when we see for example, accidents of people, people might laugh, right, they'll see here's a little video online or on TV and someone's walked by, and they slip on it. They're like, haha, the clips on. The reason they're laughing, is because they don't know who it was.
But if that was the father that had lived, they wouldn't be laughing. In fact, it might be something that would hurt them for many years, that hearing people laugh, would hurt them. And so what I want you to do is take the trials and tribulations, not as someone that you don't know that it happened to you, what I want you to do is imagine if it could happen to you. And for some of you some of these things, you've actually gone through it, and you might know exactly what we're talking about. So first and foremost, the positivity upon him was born.
And he never knew his father, before he is born two months before he is born, his father died. And still he was born an orphan right from the very beginning. In experimental law, when the Father has died, the child his fourth, child and orphan, his mother is still there. But that in the Muslim family, that Father that is to provide for the family, he's not there, then the care goes to other male relatives, such as the brother of the Father, the uncle now takes care of it or the grandfather, or some other male close relatives, that then takes care of the family. The Prophet peace be upon him in these ages as well as you know, the Arabic tradition they used to give their
children to the bedroom.
And a Bedouin woman took care of the Prophet peace be upon him when he was very young, so as a baby as a baby child, in order to protect them in their health, and to make sure that their Arabic language was preserved. And so they would gain the strength and courage of Bedouin life, as, as babies, they would be handed off to nursing mothers and take them out into the desert. And so the nursing mothers of the Prophet peace be upon it was Halima, her name was Halina. And she took the Prophet peace be upon him. And she said that the nursing woman needs to come to the city, the city of Mecca, and they would look for the people who have the written data
so that they could get their get their payments and good payment. And so everybody was avoiding
of a lot.
They're avoiding him because they knew he had no father. And so there was a delegate and get their payment or they get non payment. So everybody got their baby Halima. She said that. There's no one left
until she took Mohammed de la jolla and she said that on the one coming in the history book, The demented when they were coming to Mecca, her donkey was that she was riding with the slowest donkey. And on the way back, the donkey just he went super fast. And she says this is the blessing of an orphan boy.
And so she took care of him. So the reason I'm saying that you realize he's growing up even in infancy, the mother is not with him. Mother is not with him. At the age of 50. He does take the profit and come back to his mother, his mother died.
And so now from six years old, you're talking about, imagine a kid in kindergarten or grade one. They have no father, they have no mother. Right? I remember when I was a little kid, it would say that, you know, this paper needs to be signed by your parent or guardian. Now here's the thing, what's the guardian
and we don't realize some some of us have been in that situation they know a guardian and someone they don't have their parents to take care of the problem for the line 17
lost his mother and his father by age. So now who is taken care of?
Because they take care of and this is something interesting as well with children.
How many people have children here? children?
Okay, not too many people, for those of
you who have children, inshallah, that's what you're looking for.
The thing about the children is that no one loves them the way that their parents,
right? Nobody has, nobody has an hour in between a father and mother. Even the mother is like, you know, she's like double the Father's love. I think the love lessons here with like the construction home or whatever it is that you want to call.
What's the job that he gets?
He just doesn't love his, he just you can't imagine the mother's love, right? Women, if you when you have children and stuff like that, you know, that like the father or mother never been in her child, the father, they abandoned children all the time.
And so you hear about the same things like
you know, the father, he just left and we haven't seen him for like 20 years, it's impossible that a mother would do that to her child. But for men, it is possible. Not all guys are like that. But some guys.
And the reason I'm saying this is that one of the one of the highest rewards is to take care of orphans. And even when you see in the Quran, when it speaks about orphans, for a lot of times, like you'll hear lectures about women in Islam, in reality, when you hear about the issue of orphan in the Koran, the main orphans that really needed the help with female orphans, because not only were they like a female, just society where they're not respecting the females, but on top of that, if they're orphan, now, they don't even have father figures to defend them. And so when you see those verses, that are supporting the orphan, many of those are orphan girls that the Quran is talking
And so the person who is now taking care of the policies to punish his grandfather optimal policy, who is the chief in Mecca, and to take care of the Prophet peace be upon him. He's 60 years old, is old, at the age of at the age of eight of them apologize.
Until before the process of alignment, even 10 years old, he's lost all the people he's loved in life, almost all like the main thing is, he's lost his father. He's lost his mother, he's lost his grandfather.
And he's an only child.
Now the next person that would take care of him is a byproduct
of a part of what's his uncle.
And his father has the other uncles amongst his uncle.
Some of them believed in him, such as hunter for the lohana, may Allah be pleased with him, and some of him became an enemy, from his own some
of our products became his protectors, Guardian, and that lasted for many years, when the Prophet peace be upon him as us growing older, he was known for his honesty, his truthfulness, he was the shining example among the people of Mexico. And so when he reached the age of 25, it their business, some of his business was as a separate, until he would take the sheets out and care for the sheets, the plot, and in fact, some of the companion, they asked the prophets of Allah He said something about
sheep. And then they said, O Messenger of Allah, were you a shepherd. And then the Prophet peace be upon him said that there was no messenger of God. They came except as their profession, their job their career before becoming a messenger was a shepherd,
every prophet they spent time in this effort and so even for like, I'm looking to see if you're thinking about attending a program like upbringing program, gets the sheep
and the brothers out in the in the desert for a couple of months. And they will learn what it's like what it means to be members of the we want men that are sensitive and we want them to be caring and how to take care of you know, the family and stuff like that. Separate
peace be upon him. The next stage in his life when he was 25 years old, 25 years old. Before that, he used to do business Mecca, was very heavy in business, they would take too many trips, one in the summer one in the winter, once to a sham, which is like the theory of Damascus areas right? And when to Yemen, once in Yemen. So they will travel with their caravans and come back. And so there's a very wealthy woman in Mecca by the name of Khadija she's very wealthy, what you would do is she would,
I would rent out men, right? She leaves out these these men to take care of her to take care of her care that she send them out. They make money, they take a profit from that. And so she found one of the most trustworthy people to make in charge of her of her caravan was Mohammed Al Abadi.
And so she made him in charge, and to the Prophet peace upon him, he went up into the areas, and
in those days, they will just go for their business, make the business and come back with the profit,
like, profit in profit.
And so the Prophet peace be upon him, what he did, is that when he goes to that area he was purchased. But then he would then with the profit that he made, he bought other items from that area. And then when he came back, he resulted in Mecca. So basically, he made double, like everybody else is getting a 20% return the problem of like, double that at 40% as an example, like he made more profit for Khadija than anyone that has ever so not only is he the trustworthiness, but he's an amazing business minded person as well.
Any business majors here?
So Khadija, may Allah be pleased that she spoke to her tonko and she said to him, I would like to marry him, because he was married before and, and he was wealthy. And he has basically all the things that a man would be looking for, in a wife she had it. And people would propose to Khadija continued rejection rejected. In this case, he proposed to the partner
and the process of aligning to them married, and all his children save one child from Khadija.
They have their children from from children.
When the prophets of Allah HA HA, HA but when he knew the age of 40, when near the age of 40, the prophet peace be upon us. And it actually says this in the book, The hypercard, if you're familiar with terrible qualities, like narrations about the Prophet, peace be upon him statements. And he says, when he neared the age of 40, he used to love something called the handler. And what the handler is, is basically like going into a cave and worshiping like meditating.
And so the Prophet peace be upon when he's to go up to a cave. In, in Mecca, it's very far away. And when you take Asian people like oh, it's cool, like, Hey, you don't realize how high this cave is? How many people have visited the Kaaba in Mecca?
Okay, it's a good number. If you've done like you're going around the Kava Kava, for those who don't know is like
four walls structure that you might see in pictures about Muslims and stuff like that, there's probably some, somewhere we'll have a picture of the cabinet. That's the direction that Muslims face when they pray.
As you're going around the Kaaba for those who have been there and don't have to go there, you'll notice these huge hotels that help him to share.
But there's just an opening between these huge skyscraper hotels, and it's a mountain it's out in the distance. And at the top of the mountain is like really sharp and stuff like that. That's the cave Hill. Like from the Kava, you can stand right beside the Kava.
And you can see the mountain in the distance
meaning that he was so far away, but it's so high that you can see the cowboy from the walk up to the cave might take about an hour to walk right and walking out to the mountain might take two three hours, right walking and then climbing up the mountain and so on. In other words, it's a journey to go up to the top of the mountain to the top etc upon us to go up there and add she'd have like a servant that you would send up. That would give him food and you know water and stuff like that and he would remain up there until it was there in the in the cave of hit off the Prophet peace be upon him receive the first revelation
from the public
PT Barnum received the first revelation I imagine it's dark, there's no light, there's only like the, the light of the stars and the moon. It's in a cave despite this distance. And there's actually something interesting about the mountain, the mountain.
Like what when I lived in Medina, I realized that Oh, it looks, you get so excited to climb. But what you don't realize is that the real skill of climbing the mountain is coming down.
It's not actually going up. Because going up, you just got to walk through, you can see everything. But in Canada, we just like those kind of come down to like rundown. But it's still steep and Rocky, that you can't run down like that you actually have to come down, slide, like with your back on the mountain, and think you're looking for the same rock but backwards. And it's very dangerous to come down. The dangerous isn't coming down voluntarily. And going up to the Prophet peace be upon him was there in the middle of the darkness. And that appears.
Imagine if you're in the middle of darkness, that there's a man there.
And so this man says the economy says we,
the past 51 was illiterate. He was unlettered, he couldn't read. Until he honestly told the person he said, I can't read.
And then this man came up to the plastic tampon and grabbed him and squeezed him until the Prophet a lot of workers might not even know that he feared for his life.
He said until the point
where I thought I was gonna die.
go over to Parliament. And he said, then again, he said, read
the prophecies properties, we finally said, I can't
until he grabbed him again.
And we edited until I thought I was gonna die.
And then he let go, and he said, read
the problem, the problem, honestly,
And so jabril came, and he squeezed him again, until he thought he was gonna die. He said, until I felt that I was gonna die. And then he let go, and then the problem, then you could read the problem for the body. didn't know what to say at that point. And then he said, What do you want me to read?
And then revealed those first verses, as everyone knows, the University must kind of farther afield of
For four or five,
Diversity, which translated means the product of the Kenyan economy, we in the name of your Lord, who created
him in Allah, Who created humanity from Allah, translated like a blood clot or clock. Right? If Allah Allah book an account, we and your Lord is the most normal
account under the honorable column, the one who teaches with depends, I will have an insane amount of
humanity what they don't know.
And so the Prophet peace be upon him at this point.
Right, you'll notice that it's actually very interesting. It wasn't necessarily a consoling moment.
It was a very frightening and scary moment. And the thing I told you about the mountain is the reason why I told you that. Because in that state of fear, have you climbed down the mountain in the darkness?
And so when the Prophet peace be upon him, we came back to Abuja.
And once he saw his state, and the shaking of his body, he said, What happened? And he couldn't speak.
And he was shaking, and he just said, cover me cover them, they don't eat them.
And they cover the profits of a lot and she covered the problem for the life and her husband.
I feared for my life
feared that I was gonna die.
And then she began the words of the Prophet peace be upon and thus began the Revelation, Revelation in the Quran.
The Prophet, peace be upon him for some time. He was he had received revelation but not necessarily told to pass on the message to other people. Right. So that's it. There's a difference between someone who receives like revelation from God
versus someone who is told to pass on a message. Right. And that's why you have nebby analog to digital like two terms for the Muslim here. That's where the,
the distinction comes to the prophets of Eliza had received revelation, yet he hasn't he wasn't commanded to pass this on to other people. And then in some subsequent verses, that he was told the profit to the license after this point, he actually thought, God angels librium.
In the, in his in his original creation, he said, I saw him in his original creation, it was all that fear. He says, consider meaning like the entire horizon from east to west, was blocked by his, by his original form.
Until intense, here,
and then nothing.
No revelation, you'll see in different accommodates how long it took for someone to pay like six months,
there was no more content,
he really never came there.
Until the Prophet peace be upon him, what his fear at that point was, that allies angry with
the verses that that I that I recited earlier, what will lately that now with darker color, that Allah is the revelation is one of the the, amongst the very first chapters of the Quran that was revealed what Doha, which is about as defined by the daybreak, when they need a surgeon by the night. Now what dakara book on your Lord is not forsaking you, nor has he abandoned.
And so these are the preparation, the trials and tribulations. That's the beginning of what's about to come to the poverty economy as time went by. He was then commanded to call the people to Islam.
And so you can imagine his joy and happiness. Today will be the day that I tell everybody about Islam, and they will all become Muslim.
And we will all you know go to Paradise, everything will be great.
And to the Prophet peace be upon him in those days they had
when they would
it's actually I
remember growing up in Winnipeg, there was you guys, you guys know IGA. Have you heard of the supermarket IGA? How many people have not heard of it?
Okay, a lot of people haven't heard of it. It's like loblaws alone. And that kind of thing. It I don't think it exists anymore. Maybe it does.
I do. It's interesting in when we were in high school, the teacher was saying that there's these, if you go to it, they have a huge megaphone on top of it. Right on top of it in the olden days old school Winnebago, right?
In The World War, if there was ever, I don't know,
if there was ever an aerial attack,
that the firing was on top of it.
And if there's ever an aerial attack, and you hear the time, it was never used to tag you in a bag.
But it's a symbol. And it's one of the I'm sure one of the scariest sounds you could ever hear in your life. Another scary sound is if you're in Australia, stuff like that, that fell to Charlottesville, right? When there's a shark spotted in the water, they ring a bell to get out of the water, I'm sure that
you're swimming deep in the water, and everybody else is on the shore.
And they're ringing the bell thing out of the water.
So now in Mecca in these days, how did what are the early warning sound when a tribe because these are their tribes, and the tribes attack the ambush and everybody's sleeping at night, the animals so yeah, city walls and things like that, where they would defend. So the siren was for someone to stand on a high mountain, call the people out and warn them about the danger that is to come. And sometimes what they would do in fact is they might even take their clothes off to show the intensity of the of the danger that's
just to give you like an example of how the messages were passed very quickly to their people and to the Prophet peace be upon him. He stood on Mount. Now, for those of into the Kava, it's almost like a stone's throw from the cabinet. He climbed up on the mountain and he started calling out the different tribes and calling out his family, calling the people of Mecca to gather around calling his own he ended with his own daughter and they all gathered around him. They said
the truthful one. This is the trustworthy, one, who is going to tell us something, everybody come and listen. And so they all left the marketplaces left everything that they were doing, they gathered around the Prophet peace be upon him.
And then he said to them, because now they're expecting him to say that there's an army about to attack, that there is an imminent danger.
And so he said to them, he said, if I told you that there was an army behind it now,
on the other side, if I told you about the imminent danger that was about to strike it,
would you believe me?
And they said, lack of knowledge capita. They said, We have never in our life, experienced a life.
We've never experienced a live
meaning that of course you will.
And so he said, in a deal or locker room.
He said, Indeed, I am warning you
of a punishment, right between your
his own uncle.
Remember, we said he'd lost his job, he only has an uncle, his uncle, a bola? He said,
he said, may you perish May you be destroyed his own family in front of all the people,
he said may apparently be destroyed. And he has a damascena. He said did you take away from our businesses for this reason?
A Buddha has turned his back and walked away.
And all the people of Mecca saw him walk away and they walked away.
And that began
until you see. And, again, there's not much time, budget go through different examples of
what they did after that.
As the message or obviously from there, it wasn't
like they were angry. But when the anger started intensify, was that when when people started to accept Islam,
and they started to claim that there was only one God and that the idols were not to be worshipped.
And that there's no God, but Allah,
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
And so some of the slaves would accept Islam, the slaves that except to snap
and obviously, they were wealthy people as well. But it's interesting how, you know, the, the weak of the society in general, they're usually usually open for the truth.
Right, because for a lot of them, there's not too much to lose. Some people get into leadership position, and get into high high maintenance jobs, you know, things like that, like, Look, if I believe this, and I'm gonna have to let go of that I don't want to let go of this. Let me you know, maintain my position and so that we could start accepting so of the week that accepted or
was below the Amman pillar and many Muslims are familiar with
the reason that he's so popular in the in the history is that the Muslims would be tortured, for believing that there's no God but Allah, and some of them will actually have to make them like, I always thought to myself, you know, the FBI under tortured me and stuff. I'd be like, whatever you want me to say dude all said, no drama. Show me the sign on the dotted line.
But you had looked them and it's permissible to do that.
If you're being tortured, instead, what you can you can say a word of disbelief when when you hide because nobody can change your heart and Allah knows what's inside the heart. But then you see from the Muslim they that they would not even we can the right to believe in one God.
So they would be tortured to the point of death.
And I can I'm gonna give you an example the people who are actually tortured, killed.
he was tortured in such a way that
flame Master, he would take him out, and he would take him out into the desert in the heat and whenever they say you can fry an egg on a concept like that you're basically looking at a grill in the heat of Mecca, and they would push it back onto the ground, and they would then bring a huge rock you like a boulder and place it on the chair
so that it would be pressed
into the sand and burnt
And even the companions afterwards is because the coffee shirt and they saw his back, they would say, how could you have endured that type of punishment.
And the law later on said, he said that I hated the pain of the punishment, or the torture. And I tasted the sweetness of belief in
the sweetness of believing that there's no god but a lot. And he said, and so I had to,
I had to
feel the sweetness of believing that there was no God and the law over took the pain
And so without even says that, during the torture, he says, He used to say different things to the people who would torture him. And
of the different things he would say. He said, I found that the one that takes them off the most, the one that made them torture me the most, was when I said
when I said I had everything in place, he was extremely dark skinned. But if you ask any Muslim if I'm telling you the story, I know every Muslim here knows that it wasn't because of his skin color was because of his beliefs in the last season, the highest level of paradise. In fact, in the prophets uncle there were verses revealed that they have fun.
I didn't mention it but they reverse the process. Don't uncle condense the Hellfire Villa and a dark abyss Indian place in Mecca, highest level of Paradise that every Muslim love kills today, their their love is in their heart for being
one of the most famous of the companions of Prophet peace be upon him.
Which means when you would say it means the one the one, the first person to actually endure torture to actually be tortured to the point of death was a woman by the name of Romania for the lohana.
You name it.
Okay, you have a daughter.
It was actually a family of three, the father, mother and the son, to me as a mother with a loved one and
a lovely pleases her and her husband. Yes. And her son, Ahmad, they were three, their family, they were in slavery. And so they were being tortured, to the point where the one who was torturing her, became so infuriated with her, he took a speech just couldn't take it anymore, that
of this constant, saying that there's no viable animal. She was tortured to death. Now there's something actually about this. These people were tortured in Mecca. And where does the poverty department
So you can imagine that he's actually he people, his companion, being tortured.
And it's one of the most painful situations to be in. And I'm not talking about,
for example, being jailed unjustly, I'm coming from the US and know what I'm talking about. Right? Where they call detainees or whatever you want to call it. I know people who have been because they didn't agree to cooperate with the government in lying against others. They will feed life in prison.
Right. And the judge in the court case, Alexandria, Virginia, the judge is begging the lawyer, the prosecuting lawyer, please drop your charges. Because this is injustice.
This is the judge.
And then she says that I never seen a more parfait system than what I've seen.
don't cooperate with the government into what you're trying to life in prison. And the guy. I know his wife, I know he
sounds like two years old.
And it's just because he infinitus his final statement. He says
in his final statement, he said that I was going to cooperate,
found cooperating and dusted because what the lawyer told me to do was lie
in order to have someone else go to jail,
so so in honor, I will not lie, so that someone else is going to just ask why I didn't cooperate. And in fact, the Muslims know he didn't testify anything but the things they were accusing us. He didn't do. They were like saying that, you know, he did this or he did, he didn't even do but he just he just put in a system for the charges.
And so now the pain
Knowing that you have lots of others, like I'm just giving you just a little glimpse of the pain that I would go through, to actually see a Muslim being tortured, to see human beings getting tortured, and not being able to do anything about it.
And to the Prophet peace be upon him, he would come by a torture that leads, it's a torture that leads the person to death, the properties coupon would come by unable to do anything for them and say to them earlier,
that the patient or family have the asset in the mortgage
for their lead, your appointment is paired.
And they were tortured.
And so this is what the positivity part. And when you have a look at one of the prophets, companions and friends, what you do is you take as well, and he would find amongst the Muslim, who have been tortured, the weakest among the ones who on the verge of being killed in their torture, and he would spend his money to free them. And he kept doing that he freeing them. And of those he freed was the last one we spoke about earlier.
And so his father who wasn't looking at that time, he said to him,
he said, Why are you freeing slaves that are weak, he's like, if you're going to free slaves, then free the strong amongst them, so that if anybody ever, if you ever need like a gang later in life, these layers will support each free play. And I will walk over and say to him and respond in them out, what do you do? He says, I understand why.
And so his intention is what he's looking for, which of the players will get him the maximum return on investment? Right?
You invest in belagavi alojado. And he's going to paradise. Where do you think you're going? If you're the one who assisted in free, and obviously, then you have the tradition of freedom and play in
these are just the first years you know, I we're not even going to get into like the later years, I'm just giving you a glimpse of what they're going through the prophet peace be born in Panama, his son in law, who is from a rich and influential family, they were people that were from original family, they didn't have
they didn't have
other people didn't have the power to just torture them, because they have no dependents. So what he
does is they gather together and say, Look, let's all torture our phone. Like we can't touch your tribe, you can't touch our test, we can touch our own. And so for those who agreed amongst and they would torture their own children.
And so a man on the line who may love He pleases him was a pedophile the poverty line and he was tortured by his own uncle.
Until his uncle used to take like
metal the melody line is to take
take like calmly and set up like a fire.
And then burden back on.
Even when you hear when, when the Muslims migrated, and they left Mecca, and they crossed he went to affinia. Like Ethiopia and Eritrea, those areas, they were actually escaping the torture of the people of Mexico, they could worship alone. In the year
the Prophet peace be upon him. His uncle died, his uncle Abu Tada, all these years of memories that lost the father lost his mother lost his grandfather, and now have upon it had been taken care of the only one who is defending him, and protecting him from physical harm, was his uncle avocado.
And so what up upon is when he died, this is actually something for even for, for Muslims,
to have a relative that died in a state of not dying in Islam.
And it's something that it's a pain, that really only those who've been in that situation, understand.
And so on the deathbed, after all these years of helping the Prophet peace be upon him dead, saying that they that there is no God but Allah.
And that I'm the Messenger of Allah is a statement that I will defend you on the Day of Judgment. Because it's not about lineage. Islam isn't about are you part of the family, you're not part of family. Islam is about action. And so even if he's his uncle, regardless of where it is active, he has to believe in a lot on his own. And so the other uncles of the Prophet Peace Garden, the brothers of other pilots, they said, Are you going to die on a religion other than the religion of your of your forefathers?
Last Word, and he breathed
But he says he is dying.
He is dying on the religion of his forefathers
and the prophets of the life and they have to walk away
from his uncle
and his uncle was revealed in the Quran in a gala de la la
Na Ma Hyun de la jolla.
Indeed for sure you cannot die whom you wish. But rather it's a local guide to member who wishes
until his uncle
was in Hellfire as the Prophet peace be upon him. He was in the lowest in the lightest part of Hellfire for his assistance. But he never believed in a lot of thought alone.
And then a few months after that, Khadija rhodiola, one her his wife, she died,
and again, these are just the beginning here.
his boss's uncle, he's lost his wife
and Khadija de la Mancha. She's in the highest level of paradise. In fact,
one of the most righteous women that ever walked one time deposit into condoms with an angel gibreel and, and digital is coming to us bringing something like some soup or something like that. And then debrief is like around the corner.
He told the Prophet peace be upon him. He said that this is Khadija coming.
And then he says to him, he is my salanter send my peace in regards to her. He said while the shirahama debasing genetti copper, the lithography I wanna know, because I'm blessed her with the power in Paradise, with no toil, and no grievance.
Until she was given the glass hiding the paradise on earth. Khadija died, all his children were from Abuja, except one.
And now he has no protection.
Now, it's basically the whole all the people of Mecca, anybody who wanted to harm the Prophet peace be upon him before anybody who wanted to kill him, there are definitely people who want to do that. And some of them tried, they now have no resistance.
And so the properties the apartment is now looking for protection so that he can pass on the message. So where does he go?
Go to CD by the name of a park.
pilot is like outskirts of Mecca, right. And it's a lot if you're going walking on my camera, something that is far
into the Prophet peace be upon him, he went to a party, when he went to apply that he was going to the chiefs of the people of a party, to get them to accept the message of Assam when they accept it. Then once the Chiefs accepted, then the other people would come to the Prophet peace be upon him. He presented Islam and affair of them protecting him so that he could pass on the message of his death. And to them would be any of the treasures of this world that might come but ultimately that they would be in paradise resisting the poverty upon
the people have a thought.
Later in life,
there was actually a battle that happened in Medina, in which 70 of his companions were killed. It was one of the most major hits of the Muslim, any Muslim here that knows battles often, that is the battle that the most Muslims died in.
And so and then the Prophet peace be upon him, was injured, his punctured in his in his in his face. People have thought he had died. People had turned the back off the battlefield. It was a major hit to the muscle. And so his wife, I mean, may Allah be pleased that she later asked about this and a lot. He said, was that
the most painful day that ever happened?
And he says, No, it was
the day Have a
good day, they have a party, the moment
he went to a party to speak to the P the chief. And so the Chiefs rejected. Not only did they reject him, but they insisted
that he be stoned in their city.
And so what they did is they took the slaves
and they took the children and they took the foolish amongst the people. And they said stone the amount of art
until the Prophet peace be upon him with stone until until he had left
the place of a pirate and he was alone. And he sat by himself
an angel debrief.
And he says to him, I heard what you said the people
Allah has heard what the people said that you and with me
is the angel of the mountain.
At your command, we will destroy
until one of the properties
the low grade from the children,
those who worship can testify that there's no god but
perhaps from the children.
There'll be those who wish. What's interesting about pies anybody from a particular
thought is after the Prophet peace upon him that
there were certain areas that kept rock solid firm on his land, and descended, descended from the tribes that were attacking at that point. There's like huge wars that happened after the Prophet peace be upon him died, the three places that remained firm with solid it was Mecca, Medina,
when everybody else is shading, of course, was one of the most strongest places,
and the Prophet peace be upon him held back.
Now, again, he did just a little go into that everybody's like looking at their watch, time to go into medical places and stuff like that. You just getting little glimpses, specifically addressing things about slander,
slander, the prophet peace be upon him, when they couldn't attack physically, they attack
like, psychologically verbally with their words, and I'll just give you want to read it to you. And this is the plotting of what they should,
how they should label the profit to the lobbyists and then in order to misguided people away from
Christ knew that the Arab delegates were coming within a short time. So because Mexico was a hub for different Arab tribes, Arab tribes would come in and Mohamad in Mecca, so they have to label him at some point, not to ridicule him, so that people don't listen to his mess, right. So they agreed that it was necessary to contemplate a device that was bound to alienate the Arab pilgrims from the new face preached by Mohammed department. They went said, Well, he didn't mahira deliberate on his issue was he was one of the tribes, the chief of NACA, and they sat with him and they said, what should we What should we label him with? And when he invited them to agree on a unanimous resolution, that
they can enjoy the probation of them all? So they would all agree that this is the one thing let's all let's not contradict ourselves, let's just call them one thing. So the deliberative says, however, they were at varying, some suggested that they should describe him as a candidate, a candidate is a soothsayer. Right? He's just one of those,
you know, the fortune teller type people, you guys don't want to stare? Right? Okay.
But this suggestion was turned down on the grounds that his words were not so right. Meaning that they knew what two thirds were. And they knew that this is not the language of suit that anybody listened to, they know they did not have to say or people talk, you can immediately pick out you know, the mid Clio, or whatever it is.
Others proposed Majnoon, they proposed that he was possessed by devil.
That was what they suggest. Instead, this was also rejected because no insinuations particular to that state of mind were detected. Meaning that when someone's possessed by the devil, they do certain things, obviously. Right? They're crazy. These are jumping around like a madman and pulling their hairs off. Everybody knows that someone is possessed by the devil. They don't actually the property department, the father, but I mean.
And so they claim Why don't we say that he's a poet. He's an artist. He's his art and you know,
something. Here again, they couldn't reach a common consensus, alleging that his words were totally outside the lexicon of poetry knew that anybody who heard the poverty, they knew that this was not poetry. This is not the right approach. Even when people read the font today, they'll be like, This isn't like our regular book. Anybody ever read the Koran?
Like it doesn't read like Shakespeare or something. And it's not like a normal novel, because it's not a novel. It's not a story book. It's not poetry. It's something different than you ever read before. Okay, so they couldn't agree that it was poetry, and then they couldn't read. Poetry that Okay, then let's accuse him of practicing witchcraft.
He's a witch with the male witch whether they call me Oh,
okay. He's a sorcerer. Right. accused him of practicing
Which Let's call for the fourth suggestion. Here also ulead shows some reluctance, right? They can get a unanimous vote on this. He says, saying that the Prophet peace be upon him was never known to have involved himself in the practice of blowing knock, right doesn't get those
are the frog tails and the big brew, and throwing things they like, he never did this. And everybody knows that he has nothing to do with witchcraft,
and admitted that this beach was sweet tasting in its root and branch, meaning that when he speaks, it's not confusing the way which, which is search for speed set. However, they found in the editable pot plausible charts to be leveled against the problem. At the bottom was witchcraft. That was the one that they agreed on most that he was a sorcerer. The ungodly companion adopted his opinion and read the propagate one uniform formula to the effect that he was a magician, so powerful and commanding in his art, that he would successfully alienates a friend from his father, a man from his brother, a wife, from her husband, and a man from
until they went forward. And you will read that
statement after statement
of the different things that they call the department. And the reaction they will
write in conclusion and drama
is actually just one last point.
I didn't want to mention and that was,
for those who don't know, the prophet peace be upon him, all of his children died in his lifetime, except his one daughter falls out of the line. She died after the Prophet for the life and
all of his other children, they died in life.
Now, I thought to myself that that's one of the most painful experiences for a parent to go through to lose their child correct. When the most painful experience for parents who lose their child, and you always think that, you know, like, when the parents die, obviously, the children grieve. But it's not the opposite. It's not in the same way. When a mother loses her son.
That's a totally different experience than a son parents died, obviously, there will be pain, but it's not the same level. Correct, your grandmother,
the prophet peace be upon him, his children died. His son specifically died in infancy.
And I think I was mentioning in earlier lecture, one of my friends, his son was born last week, and his son died a few days later, just like on Wednesday, direct force, again, came on this journey, he suddenly died. He phoned me at like, 830 in the morning and told me that and I could hear, like, kinda like the sadness in his voice in the in the creaking. And I knew something had happened. And then, um, and my son died last night, he had a heart attack. He is old.
And the funeral prayers.
And the week before, he actually called me to tell me that, you know, they've been blessed with the baby boy,
the Prophet peace girl. And actually what I said to him at that point, I said, always remember the year,
but the profit is department.
But the difference was,
that when the Prophet peace be upon him, and die,
they attacked him for it. And they ridiculed and mocked.
Because they said, he has no more boys than
he can imagine you've lost his son. And now the coloration goes, and ridiculed and mocked. thing that he has now no lineage to carry on.
He only has girl.
He only have the girl.
And we know what the pictures differ.
But that's the thing.
Until even in his own family,
that he was not saved from the ridicule.
But this is the message of the plan. There was something very heavy, something that she dedicated his life. For those of us who are here to hear a little bit about the life. You're getting just a little glimpse of
what he went through, so that he could hear the message that there is no God.
hearing the story, you realize how much the poverty department Dewar's and how patient he was, and that we have a long road of patient data. Before we even get anywhere near to the types of trials and tribulations with the positive
quantity, you actually might come up with questions and now I'm done there. Is it like right
