More or minute lil fella hajela who Chateau La ilaha illallah wa Taala who I shadow under Mohammed Abu who was solo about your left for Samadhi law
when I saw the law and you're feeling alumina when you say you
were Salah who
was guasha wa alayhi
wa la Hill merci wala quwata illa de la la de la creme
wa Allahumma salli ala folio, robotic Allah Mohammed Ali Mohammed canossa later about a car like Rahim Allah Allah Ali Ibrahim in the machine
will begin always as with praising Allah, seeking His forgiveness, guidance and we ask him for beneficial knowledge and wide sustenance. We ask Allah that He forgives us and guides us is merciful to us and along alone, only on Allah we depend unto him is our goal. And there is no power mic except that of a law Glory be to Him we send peace some prayers on a final final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Remember last time we left the issue of Pedro and the Prophet salla salaam arriving in Koba.
Now Oba if you remember I can't find my board where we drew the map of Medina on or
sort of a very rough map of Medina, if you remember, was in the southern aspect of Medina
just on the outskirts of Medina, from say about three miles outside the center of Medina. So on the outskirts as he was so pop is awesome with a bucket of yellow,
arrived in Oba
after a journey of as I said approximately 1010 days and nights rigorous journey and we mentioned some aspects of the journey.
In Cuba, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed for 14 days and nights as is reported and it is authenticated that he said that length of time before he made the final journey to Central Medina itself
some mentioned reports and photog birdie is
the explanation to Sahil Mojave Valley. He mentioned in the report which is mentioned as good and authentic that foundation will lead for the mosque in Baba before the proper size from left.
the indications are that even though the foundations will lead perhaps the mosque was built first, but majority of said that the first mosque we built was Medina. So foundations being laid doesn't counter that. Nevertheless, the foundations can be led but the mosque may have been completed secondarily, the prophet SAW some leaving after just 14 nights and then going to Medina starting the foundations of the mosque that pretty quickly. Whichever way it doesn't change much. There's some debate about with which in when the Quran mentions about Masuda Iran
the most of the loss muscle which was built by Hippocrates in Medina a much later time, some Sahaba were debating and this is authentic hadith that which Masuda taqwa was
yeah so they were debating was a much to papa because they were thinking that's the first mosque so it means the first mosque which was laid his foundations were later and other settings Masuda. Nabhi and the prophesies from said that for October Allah mentioned mustard to taqwa mustard. Built
Jose Salah taqwa built on taqwa on God consciousness meant the masjid of Medina, Macedo nebby.
Anyway, there is no contradiction there even if the foundation of Mercy Mercy Koba were laid when the Prophet sons first arrived that message Kaaba is interesting the prophet SAW some with missing authentic teeth in there are mentioned as well. pockets are some used to visit muscle Koba regularly on a Saturday,
sometimes used to go riding by by by animal camel or other times used to walk to it
and perform prayers and they used to do the same in following his footsteps offering some
mercy. Koba is an interesting place while we Mason Baba is the home of own haraam
on how long sounds
like on harem sounds, what kind of name is that? Yes, it is haram as in the prohibition around but that's what that was. The name was on Haram, the mother of Haram. It doesn't necessarily mean that she had a child called Haram, because people are nicknames and things as well. Yeah, so we don't know what his basis is. But that was the name on. This is very famous on Iran. Anybody know the story of Amara?
Amara is the sister of Elaine
doesn't help me much who's um, Celine.
Celine, the mother of ns.
Ns was the heart of the soul loss was not a slave. But like a servant, he voluntarily wanted to help. He almost like the household have a similar lifestyle. So from a young age, so he learned from the great Sahabi transmitted so many ideas because of that. She learned so much from her soul from a young age. Yeah, so his mother was slain. And prophesized. These two insulin was in Medina on her arm was in Cuba, on the outskirts of Medina promises famously unauthenticated he used to visit in the afternoon at times the homes of these two women
Obama Botha even sommet if I remember correctly, yes, I think
one of the components of this famous component is a sore thumb who again transmitted so many
now the indications in this hadith are that he used to visit their home home Salaam and when they were alone the house
and he was he had no relationship
although some of them are tracked to try to without any evidence say Oh, he was lifted from that angle this angle that's this angle to try and to try and somehow get over the idea that he used to go to a woman's house and these two women not only used to were used to they used to feed him prefer to have a nap there is Chi Lula is afternoon sleep.
And they were famous also for de lousing his head and combing his hair. So why would they touching him so Allah who couldn't get round this practice justify in all sorts of ways because they were stuck? Yeah. So but there's no evidence they were related to a sort of less less than True Blood and they weren't any of his wives.
but he used to and that's what they used to do. And besides combing his hair, so you can imagine his he'd be leaning back and touching him combing his hair d lousing. it so we sat there for a while in front of them for that to be done. And they used to also also am used to collect his sweat from his forehead and used to bottle it
Yeah, used to bottle his hair and he swept
because they had a fragrance Sahaba used to say an anus knew about this so honest hypnotic, when he passed away which is after the solar cells and many years after, yeah, he kept this from his mother on Salaam and he told those who were around him that when he died to use this when they after they washed him as they used to use incense and after and and musk etc. Instead use this for the purpose was to embalm his body
was that this is all authentic and famous. So Omaha is famous for that place where he used to go in Cuba. So you can imagine when I used to visit Cuba on a Saturday, one of his trips was to the house where he would fall asleep on one of these occasions
after she spent
him in the prophet SAW some fell asleep.
He woke up and he was laughing, smiling or laughing. I know haraam says to him Yaroslav, why are you smiling and so happy? He said, when I fell asleep, I was shown in my dream that the believers, yeah, my companions and those who are to come that they are on a war trip in the way of a long
reservoir here, across the oceans, in big ships, and it says no, they're sitting on thrones like kings on those ships.
For he's being shown some future prophecy. So that made me happy.
Yeah, that made me happy.
So, all maharam say jasola. Will you make dua to Allah I'm amongst them.
This is a woman. And these are men going on us work across the seas, yet, and, and the prophet SAW Salem. Then she says slept again.
Maybe a different occasion, maybe the same day. And then he woke up again. He was laughing and smiling. And haraam asked him again. Why are you laughing and smiling? This is all in Cuba. I'm just mentioning it because Oba has this interesting connection before the person goes into Medina. So omarama asked him again now he says, Yes, I was shown the same dream again, vision of my companions and Muslims to come going across the oceans and fighting in the way of Allah.
And they are like sitting on thrones like kings. And she said, jasola please make to our tribe amongst them. He said. He said, some of you are amongst the first of them.
Yeah. And what happened? In the time of muawiya radi Allahu Allah
on haraam, went on the ships and they went to Cyprus.
Yeah, they went to Cyprus
because the wall
and when they went to Cyprus, if you now when they went they said the ship arrived home haraam came off the ship on her animal, whether it was a horse or camel, and she fell off it
So where will you find the grave of Omaha? insight
into Greek side of Cyprus.
So amazing story of this woman
dying like the shahidul dying is a shame coming off there in that
so I thought I just mentioned that they go scuba has that connection and links or probar reminds me of that story. And COVID reminds me of him or some of them visiting it regularly, even after he was in Medina and then going to the household on her own and to have his afternoon nap. Also Cova is the place where
the famous Sahabi from the unsolved which is inauthentic Harry's who used to lead in mustard Koba the answer in prayer,
what was he famous for?
He was famous, became famous, because every time he recited aloud in the prayers, before he recited any surah, after Fatiha he used to always recite to God loves. You know the story.
Every time in every prayer, he would recite Al Fatiha, and then we start to have a class, a class and then another portion of the Quran. So his companions mousseline behind him said, Listen, why don't you? Why don't you recite Surah ikhlas? And if that's fine, you can do when you know, that's enough for you. You don't have to recite another surah afterwards. Why do you always recite that and that either recite one or the other?
He said to them,
I'm not going to stop. That's how I'm going to do. If you like it, I will carry on. If you don't, I'll stop.
I won't be I won't be your mom, get somebody else. So they say in the report that they saw him as the best of them, and they didn't want to stop him.
So he continued like that, until one of the occasions I remember promises from visiting regularly. The Civil assassins come and they complain to him. They informed me like say, this is what are you mom goes, you're so lovely. have a word with him.
So they probably saw some Yeah, for Lan, or so on. So come here. Why is it that you always have to recite shortly class when you know that it's in
After recite one of the others
he said Yara sola, I love this surah
what is the Messenger of Allah said, he said, Your love with this for this sutra will enter you into
this is what I mentioned. And so when I think of coupons, these are the stories that come to my mind. And I wanted to share them with you because a beautiful story
Yeah, this is not authentic. This is already written over.
Which is it's not authentic.
But I'll double check that when I get when I saw it, I remember it's not being authentic. So I'll check the next time. But the idea of Russell lasondra coming regularly. And I'm praying that and praying an awful day, even Elmer continued to do that as well, that is authentic.
But whether it's the call of the Messenger of Allah as authentic, I have doubts about it. Last time I saw it was not authentic.
They expect good, good point. I won't say they never put anything that's not authentic. I won't go that far.
They can be but you can come across some stuff which are not authentic as well. And depends on who's authorized it. I will check.
the prophet SAW Selim, besides with abubaker to move on to Medina itself.
in regards to Medina, since they found out the prophet SAW some doing the hedra remember, there's so many believers there and some reports mentioned he was welcomed by more than 500 believers.
Yeah, when you can arrive in Medina, a vast number
of those who were there and they used to come out Yeah, during the daylight hours until he got too hot and there was no place where they could hide under a shadow so they used to go back home. People went out knockout in the midday sun of course. And one of the days they came and they went back then the prophet SAW some arrived
and energy and the reports mentioned a Jew informed them that the one you've been waiting for has arrived so they all came out. And the prophet SAW some arrived. Coming into Medina I was greeted by men, women, children, girls boys of all ages, some on rooftops, some on the streets, some from hanging from their inside their homes welcoming Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah, I know calling Jada Salalah welcome Yeah, that'd be Allah. Yeah, yeah, Mohammed, all this from the streets and and some young was singing, some was singing poetry, etc. Now, of course, famously, what's mentioned is the poetry of bilall Babu, Elena, the full moon has, you know, risen over us. This is
famous song which many moon ships and singers have sung over the centuries and years perhaps and mentioned, but he's not authenticated, this majority not authenticated to authentic and even che, some believe it is good as a report like the likes of
I think even 100 not accepted as being a good report. But majority mohabbatein set is not authenticated. And and some say it was it was signed at like 108 am, when after the book. The book, which comes much later, many years later, when the prophet SAW some came back safe. Other state was saying on this occasion and a book as well. So whether it was sang or not, doesn't really change much. The point is, it was a welcome quite clear, he recorded a welcome historical of happiness and joy. And in fact, it is reported by Al Bara in a
in a hadith in Bahati that he says, I never saw the people of Medina more happy than that day of happiness. Yeah. When the Messenger of Allah arrived empty.
So that's very important. And that confirms also the other reports of whatever report sent to you of how people are welcoming behaving. Why do I say that? Because also it is reported and true
that some people came armed with the swords and that armor on
and there was some of the people from Verona job.
the distant relatives of a soldier lasala holidays
Yeah, going back to his grandfather's relationship because he married remember,
shaver was a great grandfather sorry. shaybah or Abdulmutallab, as he became known, was the son of Salma, who was from Medina. So he's link is there. So he knows who his family is when you arrived Salallahu alaihe. Salam, and are you are you I'm sorry about you is famous is from the bedroom. The job he is, is relative.
And his name was Khalid. So who are you is there to welcome him. And some of the other people from this tribe are the ones who are Why have they got armor and swords out?
you told me
protection from work.
It's a good It's good. Yeah. But I want you to know, ask you why texting from whom and why. Why is he coming to Medina?
Here persecution, what were they doing over there? What is left behind?
They had a price on his head.
And don't you think they have links in Medina?
And, and some of them I already told you the story of Ahmed when he left that Abu Jamal and his brother arrived to try and get that person to come back from Cuba. So they're coming back and forth anyway. So they have the links, they have a reach. This is
not like the Marines Marines had no reach Croatian reach all over Arabia, as I've said to you before, and they had that ties and links already. Okay. So
to understand that, that there is still a danger to his life, because everybody is not trustworthy Muslim in Medina.
There's the Jewish tribes. Yeah. And they are those who didn't accept Islam.
Still the most snakes, and they're aware of the kurush. And many of them have ties with them as well. And now there's one affix, they're going to become more evident, not soon as he arrived, but those who show themselves to be believers, but actually they know and the leader of dumping up the lightning obey in a saloon, as I mentioned to you before, so the monastics are not a parent yet, but clearly, there are disbelievers mushriks, as well.
So there is danger. Yeah, either from somebody coming from Mecca or their links and ties here that somebody is going to try and assassinate him.
Yeah. So that's why a small group of people from the tribe tribe have been on the job, which is that way is that people were protecting this little last lesson as well.
But, but I mentioned this as well, because you have to keep that in mind as to why they're doing it. And the rest of Medina coming out well welcoming him, because some of our misguided people, and I say that or miss people who misunderstood say that the entrance of the sola sola Salaam to Medina was a coup d'etat.
I mentioned this to you before, and I also mentioned who it was who claimed this but I won't mention them again. Don't give him too much publicity. But anyway, there are people who think it was a coup d'etat. I said, Oh, he came down the armed guard that came with the swords drawn out. No, no Hang on. They weren't coming to take on the Medina and people and coup d'etat means that you remove a leader isn't it? That's what coup d'etat literally means.
And Medina is won't be welcoming you in the streets singing songs, shouting from the roofs welcome yellow solar nebula coup d'etat doesn't take place like that does it? So it's nonsense, and totally Miss representation of the entrance of Rasulullah saw some into Medina.
So the few that was there, they were there. They were there for protection for other reason for his protection, not to do coup d'etat.
So the big difference in the picture that you get the real picture is the picture I'm giving you.
Now, of course, it's very famous that the prophet SAW Salem is being welcomed is true to come with those jasola come and stay with my my place, come and stay on my house come and stay in my house. Yeah, and famously and you see it in the message as well, that the prophet SAW some inverted commas. He says, Let the the camel is under directly from Allah, the wherever it comes to rest. That's what else day. This is not authentic, which is not authentic.
There's a promise of some stable his family.
His family is already there.
So he they're already prepared for him to come and stay with them.
You're the family that and you go to your family's house their priority,
their priority. So, of course, he went to the home of as I said with you about you, I'm sorry. And his wife and the province awesome. He
he was given by Abu
there are two stories down for an upper floor so he asked Priscilla which one would you prefer the promise that some chose to stay downstairs instead of upstairs and the story mentioned about the love of follow. So last lesson and the respect for him and what he man is like you know when man enters and you know this is a messenger of Allah, not just any other family members can know. And one story may shabu bunnies wife, they spilled some liquids of water on the top floor and they were afraid of a going through the ceiling down and and sort of disturbing rasoolillah salon so they got they say the report said they got the only piece of cloth that they had.
And quickly they use that to quench the the water so it wouldn't go down and
and and hurt in any way upset result.
And you've also said Yara Salalah we feel uncomfortable? Why?
Oh you because we're above you You are so low. If you wish we would like you to go upstairs above us. I don't like the idea of being above you. But the Messenger of Allah told him to stay where he was it was better and more facilitative for the number of people coming and going that they easier to meet on the ground floor. Promise Arsalan was also met.
And the beautiful thing is is authentic are these mentioned by Abdullah lightness Salam
oblateness salam was one of the Jews.
Nothing to say was the one that was looking out and saying he's come. We don't have any information to say that. But one of the Jewish leaders and their learned men
learned man, he says that rhodiola when the when the Messenger of Allah arrived in Medina, I was one of the first to go and meet with him. crowds of people gathered around him
when he first arrived in Medina, so this is something from the first instance that you find a deal, famous relief of the blindness alone. He said and I looked at his face and another report he said, I asked him some questions and I realized that he had a face of a truthful person, a trusted person, they could never lie.
So he he embraced Islam at the hands of a soulless person and he said one of the first things the Messenger of Allah said when he arrived in Medina
first things he spoke a lot he was a little disappointed this study he said you have nurse of su Salaam wa to me Tom
what what salute or hum was salute when lady when NASA yam that the whole region that Abu Salah is one of the few Hadees which is reinz which has in a rhythm because it's from Abdullah Abdullah salam, all of our social life Allah so Allah Yeah, you are you had not asked you Salaam what Tom? was
our harm was Salou been lately one nationally young agenda bestseller
here he says the Messenger of Allah He said spread peace but also means spread Salaam not just saying Salaam but just call many translations seagulls say spread same salon no spread peace as well as the meaning of Salaam Salaam. So you can't be doing a coup d'etat and then saying of Salaam What kind of nonsense is that? Yeah. So we don't go on people's desires and how our to come to conclusions when we got evidence in front of us because the evidence contradicts it. So actually salon, look at the messenger sellers message as soon as he arrives to people what a beautiful message. spread peace feed the people feed the pole up to a motor on feed food to people meaning to
the pole and keep your blood ties respect them revere your blood ties and pray in the night when others are asleep.
So spiritual, spiritual and behavioral.
Not just spiritual and not just behavioral. And praying the night What other the sleep
that the Hulu genotype is
Now you will enter into paradise with security in peace.
So karma is a beautiful heavy
report about Salah, lowland Islam also reports. There were a messenger Allah first, right? He embraced Islam.
So messenger of Allah asked him what his standing was, he said, jasola my people would use their respect to me. And one of them most learned people and leaders from that respect.
So promises I wanted to have an impact on the other Jews because he's embraced Islam. So he got them together. And he told us the lightness alarm to hide behind something.
So the gathering of some of these Jews who knew him, he said, What do you think of Abdullah Salaam? They said, Oh, he's one of our greats. He's a great leader. He's one of our main big scholars. We have great respect for him.
So the counting online is so he said the sort of last night What if I told you that he's embraced Islam?
They went, they totally twisted in turn.
And they start in a denigrating and insulting a polemic.
So probably saw some showing to themselves that contradiction. So first, great respect, and, you know, following him, and he's a great scholar. So he came out himself to confirm that it embraced Islam. So in so stop flying, etc, against it. The promises some sent them out, but yeah, but he wanted them to make it to facilitate for them.
Yeah, how do you facilitate, you get one on you know, what we say in da nowadays, get somebody important in a big position. So it has an impact on people, all that nowadays, unfortunately, say now, or the pop star, or the actor has embraced Islam have an impact on people. That's what we've been reduced to nowadays, pop stars and actors were not the leaders and the the the, the sort of
examples in society. Not long ago, actually, they only became sold more recently. If you look at their private life, they're certainly not leaders for society. And as suddenly yet people take them as you know, heroes and stuff.
But the reality is, that's not the kind of people we're talking and we kind of but but still, the idea is still that that that person will have an impact. Yeah, because they're important and people respect them and look up to them. So same idea is to facilitate and make it easier for people to see the truth that's what we do, isn't it?
So same thing with a bloodless Salam so the prophet SAW so
that's the story in the Gospel of the lender Salaam and what they probably saw some sad face and what he did so try and facilitate every now. So the Messenger of Allah, Allah life slim settles in the house out of Abu al Ansari. And also what sunlife salaam he does, is he the land next to the home of Abu Ghraib is a land with palm trees owned by two orphans from Panama from the same family
publicize it didn't just take it, but bought it. For the boat, the land doesn't say who paid for the money etc. But when you know the public not from bought the land from the orphans that compensate. And then this was leveled. And the prophet SAW some ordered for the first mistake to be done on this land, and the apartments
of the wives of
which will take us a session on their own as to who they were at that time how the apartments were increased, depending on as the public some with married to others.
But the mosque was now built very early on, therefore, to remove that palm trees and also this there was an old graveyard,
old graveyard in this same area, the London the orphans,
the graveyard mushriks people want to just come to Islam the Muslims are the graveyard of the Muslims, but that's not the point. Well is a point in one respect. Why do I mention that? Because the remain the graves, they didn't say Oh, it's a graveyard. We can't do anything but been there a long time. So they dug the remains of what was there of bones, etc. And they buried them elsewhere. They didn't say, oh, mostly graveyard, mystic bones, shut them out into the window, chuck them into the desert. Just rubbish with the rest of the rubbish. Nobody said that.
Nobody said that. And and of course Allah when they discuss about all grades,
Really for Muslims all mushriks any grapes? Yeah, for example, in this country, I have absolutely checked, but there's a period of time that is the grapes are not touched maybe 50 years, maybe longer. I don't know. Maybe some of you know, but there's a period of time when when the land can be reused again, you know, some graveyard shift in theory anyway. But some graveyard been there for hundreds of years or longer. But, you know, in the end reality is people reuse the ground again, because everything's gone.
And there's old graveyard, but Olimar discussed about when the bodies have gone completely. And even if there's bones there, if there's a need but a state, then they are able to move those remains and use the ground.
What most Muslim almost like it's not because we were much like bones that it was thrown away or, or put somewhere else. That's what I'm trying to make you realize. The case is for all Gabor. Yeah, of believers, it can be done to as well, that they can actually read for a reason. And the remains moved. And the reason can be for building for building, even flats and accommodation. Yeah, so benefiting the society benefits in the living, the grave can be allama. I've said for the same reason that grave can be dug, if there's something valuable in there, as well.
It's not haram to do that, which can value the value of the living, but not again, there is an adjective and other of how you think and what you do with whatever remains.
So here in this place, the prophet SAW some and the Sahaba
begin to build a mosque,
build a mosque, with the direction of the Qibla in which direction
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, I like to mock this. At this stage. The soccer ball has not been changed yet. Okay. So it's the the parabola is in the direction of Jerusalem.
to love this flower.
and in the building, you don't find a solid muscle. So I'm sticking to one side, on a throne, eating grapes and fruit, watching his men working, digging and putting it together, as you find many of the leaders
but you find a sort of assassin sweating and toiling with them with the same kind of soil and muck on him as on them. Some of them this is his way. This is this is the Buddha. This is Prophethood Yeah, show me other leaders there are very few will have done like that. Very few and praise and great people who have come, you don't find them just joining in to give the order of others don't do it. Yeah. But despite this being the Messenger of Allah. No, he's in amongst them. For Lola while he was solemn, toiling with them. And while they're doing that, it is authentically reported that they are singing like poetry,
which has been transmitted to this day. Singing a llama inner hula Hira, illa hiral arcada. Oh Allah, surely there is no greater good than the good of the afternoon. This is what they're singing as they're building and the promises of joining him with them. fansler unsolvable Maha jurien. So help. So Allah help the unsolved under Mahajan. Yeah, the helpers on the vikernes. So this is what I repeatedly doing to make because singing poetry things were good words. It's well known in human being and societies from time immemorial. Don't come along and say singing is haram when this is some. It makes light work. There's no fancy shot involved in it. There's no pushing towards go and
do something haram or evil they singing because singing even in travel is well known prophesized from time to time, even with the wives are publicized. Slim did have somebody who was well known as a singer. Yeah. As they're going on the camel journey, because he's a long camel journey and he just makes it easier and make unnecessary makes the camel sort of
move in. Just makes it really it makes the journey so enjoyable. And like doesn't it the same with work. Same with work. So that's the idea. You find a similar sound Sahaba singing nice poetry as they're working to build a mosque
So, after that Mosque of Medina is built,
very soon after that,
there are a couple of major things that happen, which are the very foundations of Medina and shown to be the very foundation therefore of unbelieving society. One is the masjid.
What is the masjid straightaway, which is a place for gathering of bringing the house together as they stand together in Salah. Yeah, to bring the hearts together of society through remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this was the hub. Yeah, wasn't just a Masjid for praying and going home, but the place for gathering place for gathering a place at that time used at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, although he mentions himself that the massages are for remembering a dhikr of Allah for Salah, but use for other things as well. We find that in the Sunnah personalized gathering to do Shura gathering to take advice make big decisions in society, a sandbox or some use that
message. So it's like a hub, a hub for and very foundation of a belief in Muslim society. the very foundation of believing Muslim society. So
and, of course, it becomes up because the man and the beliefs are all the same. the very foundation is a foundation, it can't be the foundation. Yeah, when there's different beliefs and you you can't mushriks coming into the same place standing shoulder to shoulder and Jews and Christians. Because that scope is the whole idea of of hate and one less and one message from Allah, which has always been the case with all ambiental. So that's what we believe. So people deviate, you know, people went to shirk into out of ignorance. We don't accept all those kind of
ideas and say they're all feasibly law. They're all the possible law. Yeah, this is not the way as the prophets and Russell and messengers who came, they came to cleanse the message from the director and gathered as Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam did as well. We don't say there's no truth in Christianity and Judaism neither casarez that's why the promises you find when he even in Medina and the way of allied himself calling Al Khattab
with respect are people of the Book of people of Scripture. And the prophet SAW some when he's dealing with a town mood and the Torah used by Jews. On one instance, he brings it and puts it on a pillow with respect. Yeah, because there's truth in it. Not like some people think nowadays, oh, Bible, cricket is full of rubbish. No, no, this deviation and we believe that things written by the hands of, of human beings, but there's truths in it as well, from Allah, no doubt. So we don't say that. But nevertheless, the clearing of the message came with the final measure. So the last lesson, so this is the head and bringing the house together is on common belief, this worship is not a mixed
worship, you know, nowadays, we have this idea and atheists obviously love it as well. And, and the Hindus have no problem with it, that we all gather together Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Jews, and we all do worship together. We don't accept that.
We don't accept that. We might some Muslims get confused, you know, and I'm talking about worship. And if we're gonna make a dua, then we're not going to have Oh, Jesus Christ, Son of God, and then we're going to put our hands up and join him the prayer, if you're going to do a prayer, then do it to God only, yeah, or not to Buddha, or not to the elephant God or the Monkey God. Because if you're gonna do that, we're not going to join in yet. But if you say you believe in the God and even the Muslims said, as the Dean of Arabia, a Hindu said, as well. I remember seeing a program where a Muslim so called expert was sitting with a Hindu, and
he was the Muslim Imam, inverted commas, were trying to show that the Hindus, they don't believe in God, etc. They just believe in his idols.
So the Hindu retorted, quite rightly said, No, no, no, no, we believe in God, one God as well. But we believe these are intermediaries. So the Muslims seem to be stunned. What did you actually know before you came on the program? Now you're shocked? Yeah. So he's just defeated you because you put your foot in it by saying nada don't believe in the one come to say that we do. Now the problem it didn't clarify after that, but the problem Islam sees is exactly that, that you use intermediaries when you can
go directly to Gordon you don't need these stone and wood intermediaries. That's what is denounced by Islam. Okay? So if you if you're going to pray, then when you pray to the One God perhaps will join in a prayer but not any ritual worship anyway.
We don't want to be like the Bollywood heroes so called and I have to mention it in no uncertain terms because so many of our community love him as the hero, bollywood Shahrukh Khan. Oh, he's Muslim. And we love him. He's the master the king of filmmaking. Yes. Which he is in the Bollywood industry. Yes, he's the same guy. Not only did he marry a Muslim woman, a Hindu, and he brags about it. He still thinks he's Muslim. He still thinks he's following Islam. I don't know when he became an Islamic scholar or an expert to challenge real scholarship or knowledge of Islam. He still thinks he's Muslim following Islam when he says openly and you can find it on YouTube and publicly on TV
channels that I teach we teach our children crowns well, but we also go and do puja at the idols, we also go worship the idols as well. We put the crown to one side and then we're gonna do this. What cron Are you following? You are mushrik you are not a Muslim. You are Muslim, until proven otherwise. And I've no no qualms no second statement. Be clear. This is clear. This is not even the Shere Khan, those Muslims who go to tools to pray and to shrines, even that shift is should occur as many Allah said, Yeah, because they believe in La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, they don't believe in them and worship them like he is worshiping the idols of the Hindus.
So let's be clear.
This foundation Why do I mention that? The mosque as a foundation is foundation is believed what brought together that's what strengthened Medina look what it what it brought together, not people from the same tribe and families. It brought complete strangers First, it broke down the idea of tribes and the rich and poor in Mecca. Slaves on masters broke down the idea of anything built on that race on a race idea, or anything built on class status. Yeah, the upper class. Yeah, the bourgeois they be the rulers and the rest are just going to be
same idea and Hinduism, as I mentioned to you much earlier on as well. No, Islam broke all that idea. Yeah. Remove the barriers between race tribalism. Yeah, rich and poor. They all brought together stand together in the same line.
Amazing power of Islam. It didn't do it just in one tribe. It broke away from the tribes. So it revolutionized nothing came in any place, nevermind Arabia to do that.
It wasn't just economic change, because some socialists and communists and others try and say, Oh, it's just a economical change, moving from Mecca to Medina all because we was after money and power. And that's what strengthened them to go there. Was 10th is very clear. And then it brought Mahajan in strangers, and I'm sorry. And I mentioned to you before about the sacrifices of the Mojave and leaving their home and the sacrifices I'm sorry, we'll see further as well, how they open their homes. You know, they didn't open them to just Rasulullah saw Islam but the Sahaba Mahajan who came and said, Come on up and and the Quran mentioned they prefer them over themselves. radi Allahu anhu
What did they gain of benefit in this world from this brothers and sisters?
If you look at it a bad face value in this world it was loss to give Yeah, to say we're willing to share as they said the answer half of our orchards of Palm Desert palms and our orchards follow the jasola which are willing to give 5050 share partnership with them.
That's what they said.
That's what they said in a jungle. Why? And and, and I mentioned to you about Mahajan, and how difficult it was for them to leave their homes, their ancestral home for decades and centuries. For them to move to Medina isn't like from moving to Manchester to London now. You're talking 1400 years ago. People don't move like that. Yeah, lose everything and move as well. Not just move. Yeah, be persecuted and move. lose all your wealth. Have it snatched off you have you have
taken away from you have your wealth taken away from you and move and profits Aslam indicated
he himself his love for Makkah as well as he went on the outskirts of Mecca as reported in authentic hadith
that the prophet SAW Some said
on the outskirts somebody says what la he
about to Mecca itself in the key la Cairo or dilla wa hub or de la he area.
See by Allah you are the best of places on the earth of Allah and the most loving on the earth have a lot to me
while I will need Oakridge to Maharaj had it not been there I've been thrown out I would not have left you
this is a home
wasn't easy it wasn't that they were rushing across thinking we're not going to reap all the rewards and all the all the economic resources and Medina nonsense
they're going out and losing everything don't know what's in store for them. But yes, sir man ah we hear and we obey Allah Allah, whatever Allah has in store for you. This was a way of the Mahajan in the way of the answer will open the doors to them. So that
that was that belief is what
brought them together the strength of that belief. I will see on top of that, what the prophet SAW some did in putting Elmo Aha,
a war heart between them. brotherhood, but a special brotherhood, a general brotherhood, which is for all believers, time immemorial to come on a special brotherhood significance of that after building the masjid so much it bound them together, but the bind binding was the man, the cement is the man through that,
that the man that produced that kind of love, which, which was beyond the love between blood, wasn't it?
So it was said, as a remember a few years ago, one of the objections from non Muslims towards Islam Oh, yeah. You don't allow any non Muslims to come and enter your worship places like Aqaba.
You'd like your exclusive. So that's like a discredit against Muslims, or you don't you don't allow anybody whereas Roman, the Roman Catholic Church allow people to come back, sir.
Of course we don't. It's not a tourist place. If you want to come and worship with us, welcome open arms. It's a place of worship. That's why says this believers that way. And believers this way, if you don't like it is only because it is not a place of tourism. Is it? Are we clear? It's not a place of tourism. It is a place of only worship. So if you want to worship You're welcome. But worship of one God, you can't bring your own statue in and worship it. No, we're very clear about that. Yeah, that we have no qualms about Yeah, but as far as aside from worship, actually, if there's need for building technology, industry, Doctors Hospital building, bridge building, Kava
building, have non Muslims been there being involved? And are they still involved? Of course. Yeah.
Of course. Yeah.
So it's not as simple as you as you might think it is. But worship is that place, despite what some of us do nowadays, and I'll finish with that in taking selfies of ourselves have videos and selfies of ourselves standing at a cabin or look at me making the wall here
sadly, please don't do it
it's so off putting sitting there trying to look at the cabin remembering alone somebody going oh look at me Yeah,
I'm here. Watch me I'm look I'm making wha wha is that? What kind of why's that take a picture of me while I'm making you up? Take a picture of him and pray. So anyway, that of course it was obviously better when when we didn't have this phone technology and they used to stop the camera going in at the now what they're going to do. It's impossible isn't a me forcing they take off people. So that's where we are but it's up to people whether we carry on in that direction. Anyway, next time inshallah. We'll look at the heart, the Brotherhood bonds, etc. and move on from there. And that's a very important topic in sha Allah akula Kali had ever suffered. In taboo Boogaloo rockin
