Today inshallah I want to cover a story that we find in the books of history that existed about approximately 1000 years before the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But it was about a man who had an impact though he existed 1000 years before the prophets of Allah sallam, he impacted the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam eventually. So, we find in the books of history, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came to Medina, he was writing his camel and you have to understand that He came to magenta Koba, first where much of the Koba is, and right across magenta Koba. There's a garden there, which exists till today. And there was some time

00:00:46 --> 00:01:24

before where this garden was locked up. The Saudi government now has opened up this garden, and now has become one of the places where often when people go for Ziraat they usually stop at this garden. This was the place where initially when obika The hola Juan and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam they came, people did not know who the Prophet SAW Saddam was. So it was that time where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually walking and obika The Allah Juan he was also with the Prophet SAW Salem, but people had mistakenly assumed that it was obika, who was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So as soon as the Oba karate alarm was set down, everyone began to come

00:01:24 --> 00:02:00

and do his kedma and everyone began to come and serve Him. And the problems are sudden he just took, you know, few steps away, and he sat down by himself. At that time, the sun was beating down on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Booker, the Aloni got up and he put his shade right above the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that was the very first time that many people in Medina who had never ever experienced or had ever come in front of Rasulullah saw Selim dies when they began to realize that this is the prophet of Allah saw salah. And so then the Prophet saw some of the establishment of the Kuba he stayed there for several days. And then now he's coming to Medina

00:02:00 --> 00:02:37

for the very first time. And you have to understand that right now. Also, it's almost like if you think about it, it's a 45 to 50 minute walk right now, from Missouri never want to muddy the Cobra. And right now, the government has even like created a pathway, a direct pathway from monopoly all the way to much of the cobra, if anyone wants to walk in, they can walk it. So the problem says someone's coming to measure the pullback, and that time he's on his animal. And many people ask the prophets on some to come and stay at their home, you know, out of respect and honor for themselves. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that please leave this animal alone, wherever it

00:02:37 --> 00:03:17

goes. And wherever it stops. That is where I will stay. The Prophet sallahu WA has mentioned the books of Sierra that it came and stopped at the house of Allah you've unsalted or the Allah Juan. Now the question is why the house of Allah even Saudi or the Allah Juan, and by the way, for prospective purposes, if you go right now to magic number we right now, where the green dome is there's of course it's a wall right there around the green dome. If you take perhaps like, you know, probably 1520 steps, not exactly forward a little diagonally. That is where the house of a human side of the Allahu Anhu was originally. Okay. So just to give you some perspective, if you ever go

00:03:17 --> 00:03:55

next time, just try to understand and try to visualize this was this was the house of who I'm sorry. The question is why the house a boy, you've on Saudi, here's the here's the interesting thing. So we find that in the past, there was a man who was a king of Yemen, his aim was to bow, okay, his aim was to bow. And there's different historical records that we find. So I'm going to cover both of them. There's two primary ones, I'm going to cover both of them, the beginning of each story is different. But the ending is the same for both stories for both historical variations. The one variation that we find is that this man, Tobias was a person who would go to different places,

00:03:55 --> 00:04:34

conquered those places, and move on. That's what that's the type of king that he had. He had an entourage with him. He had army he had people who had studied previous scriptures and so forth. So what happened was that he was making his way from Yemen upwards. And the very first place that he came across the major place was Makkah, he went to Makkah, and he began to you know, usually he will get like an invite he will get like, you know, a warm welcome here. He's not received a warm welcome. And uh, you gotta understand also that when, you know, when you go to the when you go to Mecca, the police were a little more like, you know, tougher nature people. So what happened was

00:04:34 --> 00:04:59

that he felt that you know, what, this place, I'm going to conquer this place, and I'm going to wipe out the people this place, is mentioned that he suffered a sickness. And because of the sickness, he quickly left Makkah. And by the same time the people there or amongst his orange entourage, they began to tell him that this is a very sacred place that was built by Ibrahim alayhis salam and his son and so forth. And rather than you thinking about destroying this place,

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

is rather you should revere this place. So he was, by the way, too by was the very first man who closed the Kaaba, okay. He was the very first person who called the Kaaba, and there's no difference in this. So nonetheless, he made his way upward. And he came to yesterday, which is currently Medina. And there many of his learned scholars, they said that you can move forward with your army, but we want to stay here and yesterday, we find something very special about this place. So they said that what is so special about this place, and they he began to inquire, and once again, there were a lot of people living there who are amongst the Jewish community. So he began to inquire from

00:05:39 --> 00:06:19

them. And they said that the reason why we live here is because we have read in our previous scriptures, that this is perhaps a place, perhaps a place where a final prophet will come. And here we are waiting that that final prophet at that time, the bar basically said that I'm going to wait also for that final prophet, okay, so this is one variation. The second variation is that toolbar came all the way to Medina first, he never made a stop in Mecca. He came to Medina first, he left his son over there, he went out to take care of something else for for several weeks, he came back to Medina to find out that his son was killed. And at that time, he said, I'm going to rage war

00:06:19 --> 00:06:57

against the people of Medina. And hence a war did break up a small war did breakout. But what was very peculiar, very strange about the people of Medina or yesterday at that time, was that Dubois began to notice that as we are fighting them throughout the day, the same people, our opposition, they're feeding us at night, they're taking care of us at night, they're making sure that we are sheltered. They're making sure that we're taking care of at night. Instead, this is very strange. I've never seen this when it comes to war. Your opposition wants you to die here. These people, their opposition are taking care of us. They're showing us hospitality. So that is when he began to

00:06:57 --> 00:07:38

change his mindset about these kinds of people. And then he came across some Jewish people. And they began to inform him about this place the sacredness of yesterday and so forth. And so he says, You know what, you two people seem like you can educate a lot of people. You have so many of your type here in yesterday, I want you to travel with me to Yemen. And so they went they began to travel southwards. They stopped in Makkah, he he was inquiring about what Maca is, they said, This is what Maca is the place where it was built by Ibrahim and his son Ali Salaam. And then he went to Yemen. And these two people, these two Jewish rabbis accompanied him to Yemen. And they taught Jewish faith

00:07:38 --> 00:08:15

and so forth, converted many people. And by the way, this is why even when you go to Yemen today, there's a very big Jewish community there till today in Yemen, you go to Yemen, there's a very big Jewish community there till today, by the way. So anyway, the point is this. At that time, while he was living in Yemen, he began to inquire from these people, that why were you living in your strip and they said that we have come across, you know, what we have find in our Torah, that there was there's a man by the name of Ahmed who will come eventually here, and this is one of the names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will eventually come into yesterday, and we are waiting

00:08:15 --> 00:08:55

for him to buy began to study about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he began to fall in love with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Wherever he has studied in the previous scriptures, he began to admire him. So what tobuy did was that he also came back to Medina, and he began to reside in Medina. And what he did was that he built a house. He said, I'm going to build a house for this man, Muhammad, peace be upon him said Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and whenever he comes, I'm going to be the one who's going to entertain him. And subhanAllah he wrote even a letter for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that this is who I am, and this is a house for you. And I'm

00:08:55 --> 00:09:32

one of your, you know, supporters, I believe in you and so forth. I believe in your message. And this is why it was allah sallallahu is something he mentioned, there's a hadith and most of the Ahmed, that that Toba do not curse to bow to bow was a Muslim. He mentioned this, but at the same time, you have to understand that the word topbar is a reference to any Yemeni King. Just like in Egypt, every single King is known as Pharaoh. But there's one particular phenomenon which was different on the Masada incident, but everyone else was considered as an own also. But likewise, in Yemen, any king was considered a tuber. But there's there's a particular to buy here. But

00:09:32 --> 00:09:59

nonetheless, he says that I'm going to build a house he wrote a letter, and while he began, he was about to pass away. At that time, he has mentioned that he began to he gave this letter it says that I'm going to pass away, I probably will not see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but please make sure that this letter does get to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there are some historical records that we find that the Prophet SAW Allah while he was some Subhanallah via wahi. He was informed about this that inlet and

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

later on in the time of the Prophet Salam, he actually was given this letter by by someone else from Medina. It got passed on from generation to generation. And it was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, now we come to current day, which was the Hijra time, the province was settled once again is on his animal. And he started the house of Abu Ayoub, inside of the Hola, Juan, the question is why the house of Ebola even Saudi because of who you have on Saudi was one is one of the people amongst the ancestory of tuba. Okay. Interestingly topbar built this place, he built this house for the province of Salem, he cannot see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah

00:10:40 --> 00:11:24

subhana wa Bucha Allah Subhana Allah, He made sure that one of the people in the family of Toba in the ancestry of Toba would become a sole possessor of this house, they will become a Malik of this house. And then eventually the same animal stop at the same house which was built by Toba, which was built which was at that time resided or it was being there. We even start with the Allah Juan was residing over there. So it's a very interesting story, if you think about it, that who this man was, he built something. But what's the key lesson in all this? First of all, you understand now how history works. Now you understand why abou a human side of the Allah won a very interesting story.

00:11:24 --> 00:12:10

But here's the key thing. When you make a very good intention to bat pi, he knew he will not C Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he made an intention. And he had since he was sincere in his intention, he was trying to do something that is good. So here's the thing, a lot of times we are we want to do something that is good, and it may impact someone else. But because you and I, we may not see the effects of that impact we give up. Don't ever give up. If you want to do anything that is good. You do something that is good. And perhaps ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will bring the fruits of your hard work many years later, and someone else may benefit from from your hard work.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:47

You know, there was a scholar who gave a very good example, that when you study science, we study science, what happens to water, water evaporates, right. But usually when the water does evaporate into the clouds and so forth, they usually the same cloud, it doesn't drop the water, it doesn't pour the water on that same locality again, it moves around, and then it will bring down the rain on some other community. Likewise, whatever good that we do, we may not see the impact where we are at where we're working at, but the impact may be affected or the impact may be somewhere else. So whenever you want to do something that is good, do something that is good goes through the good that

00:12:47 --> 00:13:25

you want to do. And perhaps if you have a good intention, Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring your results into fruition Inshallah, and someone down the road will benefit you make dua, probably the effects of your DUA will not be done now. The effects of your DUA will take place sometime later. But don't ever underestimate any good that you want to do in sha Allah. Just like I shared the story of this man too. But he built a house he was born from this dunya years and decades, had gone by. And then year after all that dangerous Allah Azza wa sallam, he had the intention and Subhan Allah Allah made that exactly happened. Allah fulfill his intention by the prophet saw some staying over

00:13:25 --> 00:13:56

there. And by the way, this was as I said, it was right there next to the magic number we at that time knows you muslim we did not even exist at that time. The Prophet SAW Allah while he was some he bought that piece of land from two orphaned kids. And he established majestically over there first, and then history keeps on going on. So just some history also also a lesson in all this for also when it comes to intention, and the sincerity of intention. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who learned from these kinds of stories to apply the benefits of these stories in our life. I mean, Lebanon, I mean, where does that come

00:13:57 --> 00:13:57
