That's the 4th pillar of Islam. The 5th

00:00:01 --> 00:00:03

pillar of Islam is Hajj.

00:00:04 --> 00:00:06

In Hajj, we do tawaf of the house

00:00:06 --> 00:00:07

built by Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:00:08 --> 00:00:08

We do

00:00:09 --> 00:00:11

of the wife of Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:12

We pelt

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

the shaitan

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

the way he pelted it on his way

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

to slaughter his son. We sacrificed the animal

00:00:19 --> 00:00:21

fulfilling the dream of everything in hajj is

00:00:21 --> 00:00:22

about who?

00:00:22 --> 00:00:24

Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

Ibrahim. And so the entire

00:00:29 --> 00:00:32

our entire religion is actually directly connected to

00:00:32 --> 00:00:33

Ibrahim

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

We are the Abrahamic faith.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:39

And Rasulullah is the fulfillment. What was started

00:00:39 --> 00:00:40

by Ibrahim is

00:00:40 --> 00:00:41

actually being fulfilled

00:00:42 --> 00:00:44

by Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:00:45 --> 00:00:47

Connecting all of these together is really important

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

for another reason.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:00

Before starting this video series, head on over

00:01:00 --> 00:01:01

to bayguna.comforward/lulhijjah

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

to download our free guided workbook on the

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

Prophet's road to Hajj to use and study

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

with as a companion to this Dhul Hijjah

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

video series.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

I'm gonna repeat some things from before as

00:01:25 --> 00:01:26

a quick recap

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

that will help you understand this session.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

Part of the treaty of Hodeibiyah

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

was that we are going

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

to make whatever affiliations we want.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:37

So

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

the

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

Muslims

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

became allies with Banuk Khuzaa,

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

and the Quraysh were they didn't have much

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

left because Islam was kind of spreading too

00:01:48 --> 00:01:48

fast.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

So they basically ended up making allies with,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

Banu Bakr, which are both neighbors to Mecca.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

But Banu Khuzha and Banu Bakr have a

00:01:57 --> 00:02:00

long standing animosity against each other. K?

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

So,

00:02:02 --> 00:02:04

essentially, what happened a little bit after,

00:02:05 --> 00:02:06

the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

a couple of years down the road.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

The,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

the Banu Bakr who were affiliated with the

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

Ka'ab with with the Quraysh, they came to

00:02:14 --> 00:02:15

Quraysh and said, listen.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

We're gonna attack,

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

Hosuh at night.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

We're gonna do we're gonna break the treaty.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

Are you okay with that? Because they're not

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

gonna find out because it's gonna be late

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

at night.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:26

So they go and tell the Quraysh this.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

And

00:02:28 --> 00:02:31

within the Quraysh, you remember, Suhail, the negotiator?

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

He said, it's a good idea. I'll supply

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

you weapons.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

Don't worry about it. It's going to happen

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

at night. They won't know who hit who

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

hit him.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

So the Quraish endorsed the idea, even though

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

they know this is gonna break the treaty.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

Right, and supplied money and weapons too. And

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

of course, they supplied money and weapons because

00:02:48 --> 00:02:48

they're thinking

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

when you attack them, first of all, they

00:02:51 --> 00:02:53

wanna punish them probably for becoming allies with

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

the Muslims. How are you our neighbor and

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

allied with the Muslims? So you should be

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

punished for it. And 2, when you kill

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

and pillage,

00:03:01 --> 00:03:03

then we're gonna get some of that back.

00:03:03 --> 00:03:04

So you're gonna get a return on your

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

investment by supplying them weapons.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

So they did this secretly to try and

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

steal some of their camels or whatever.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

It didn't go that well.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

They they got called out and the alarm

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

went off and people started making noise and

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

women and children started crying. And

00:03:21 --> 00:03:22

usually, I told you they had some honor

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

among even bandits. So they'll steal your stuff,

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

but they're not gonna kill you. But this

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

ended up becoming a massacre. So they they

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

ended up killing 20 people including women and

00:03:30 --> 00:03:30

children.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

So 20 people were murdered that night in

00:03:33 --> 00:03:34

Khuzah.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

Right? And Khuzah is let me ask you

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

again. Khuzah is allied with who?

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

With the Muslims. Khuzah is allied with the

00:03:40 --> 00:03:42

Muslims. Okay. So some things you should know

00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

about Khuzah. In the in the ancestry of

00:03:45 --> 00:03:45

Khuzah,

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

they used to be

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

the custodians of the Kaaba.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:53

The Banu Khuzaa were the original, the earlier,

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

not the original, but the earlier custodians of

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

the Kaaba,

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

and then it was taken from them by

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

the Quraysh.

00:04:00 --> 00:04:02

So the Quraysh had taken it from Khuzaa,

00:04:02 --> 00:04:04

but there was a family tie between them.

00:04:04 --> 00:04:05

The person who took it over on the

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

Quraish side, Husay, he was married to the

00:04:08 --> 00:04:08

daughter

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

of the chief of Khuzah. So the ancestors

00:04:11 --> 00:04:12

of the Prophet

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

from their mom's side are actually also connected

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

to Khuzah.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:18

So they're distantly related to the Prophet

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

also, not just the Quraysh binuh Hashim. Okay.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:23

Anyway, so they got attacked,

00:04:24 --> 00:04:27

and one of the worst incidents that happened

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

is one of the people in Huza'a ran

00:04:28 --> 00:04:31

away from the attack and he ran towards

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

Makkah and ran towards the haram. And he

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

ran to the haram because he knows nobody

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

gets killed in the haram. So he got

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

in the haram and he said, illahak illahak,

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

you know, your god, your god. You can't

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

kill me. I'm in the haram now. And

00:04:43 --> 00:04:44

the the guy from Banu Buqar said, there

00:04:44 --> 00:04:46

is no god today and killed him.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:48

So that happened.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

Now this incident

00:04:54 --> 00:04:57

Khuzah who are going to take this issue

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

up with the Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam. They're

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

gonna go to Madinah and tell the Prophet

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

what happened. So that's what I'm gonna read

00:05:01 --> 00:05:04

with you. Kharaja Amrub Nisalim Al Khuzah. So

00:05:04 --> 00:05:05

his name is Amar.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

Medina. Until they approach the prophet in Medina,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

This is one of the incidents that led

00:05:22 --> 00:05:25

to the conquest of Mecca because you, of

00:05:25 --> 00:05:26

course, you cannot invade Mecca if there's a

00:05:26 --> 00:05:29

peace treaty. Right? So they're break they're breaking

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

the peace treaty.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:37

And so he sat in the Masjid, Masjid

00:05:37 --> 00:05:37

Nabawi,

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

and among all of the people, and he

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

started crying out. The leader of Banu Khuzah

00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

started crying out. This by the way was

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

the old way of doing a press conference.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

You start crying out in the middle of

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

a crowd and your press conference usually rhymed.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:52

It was a poetic

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

press conference. Okay. So they would drop bars

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

in the middle of their crisis. So that

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

was their thing. And so

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

he starts doing that.

00:06:05 --> 00:06:06

He says,

00:06:06 --> 00:06:09

Oh my Rabb, I am calling on Muhammad

00:06:10 --> 00:06:11

because we are standing with

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

an oath, a pledge we've taken that is

00:06:14 --> 00:06:18

between our fathers and his father. Meaning, Abdul

00:06:18 --> 00:06:18

Muqtaleb,

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

the grandfather of the Prophet had

00:06:21 --> 00:06:22

made a treaty

00:06:22 --> 00:06:23

with their ancestors

00:06:24 --> 00:06:24

to become

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

1, to be united in all things. Right?

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

And the ancient treaty, the long standing treaty.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

He says about the prophet

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

You were a child and we were the

00:06:37 --> 00:06:37

parent.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

What does he mean you were the child?

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

Meaning, our ancestry has a woman who's your

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

great great great grandmother.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

So in that sense, we have parental rights

00:06:46 --> 00:06:47

over you too

00:06:47 --> 00:06:48

because our family includes

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

your great great great great grandma, 4, 5

00:06:51 --> 00:06:52

generations removed.

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

And we were We accepted Many of us

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

accepted Islam, and we didn't raise our hand.

00:07:00 --> 00:07:02

We didn't we didn't draw our swords.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:04

In other words, he's saying, we haven't committed

00:07:04 --> 00:07:06

the crime. We haven't broken

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

Huza are Muslim.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:20

Islam has spread but hasn't taken over Huza.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:20

Okay?

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

So help us and may Allah guide you

00:07:26 --> 00:07:27

to help us in a way that is

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

immediate.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

And call the servants of God, meaning call

00:07:33 --> 00:07:35

your followers, the sahaba,

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

that they will come and provide aid.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

Among them will be the messenger of God,

00:07:42 --> 00:07:43

because they know he believes he's the messenger

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

of God. So he's calling him as the

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

messenger of Allah. Among them will be the

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

messenger of Allah who is already ready. Meaning,

00:07:49 --> 00:07:51

I'm sure the messenger is ready to go

00:07:51 --> 00:07:51

to war.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:52

Right?

00:07:55 --> 00:07:58

If he was if the messenger was implored

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

with humility,

00:07:59 --> 00:08:02

he was his face would turn black with

00:08:02 --> 00:08:04

rage. In other words, his face would turn

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

angry and dark with rage because

00:08:06 --> 00:08:09

of what they've done. So if I'm coming

00:08:09 --> 00:08:11

to you with all this plea, then I'm

00:08:11 --> 00:08:12

sure it's gonna make you really angry, and

00:08:12 --> 00:08:14

you're gonna take revenge on all of our

00:08:14 --> 00:08:14

behalf.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

Come with an army,

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

like a large army, like an ocean that

00:08:22 --> 00:08:25

flows and makes frothy waves at the shore.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:26

So like,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

come on them like a tsunami basically is

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

what he's saying. Right?

00:08:33 --> 00:08:36

Quresh has broken their treaty with you.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:40

And they have broken, they have violated

00:08:41 --> 00:08:42

the promise that they reinforced.

00:08:45 --> 00:08:48

And they waited on the ambush site. There

00:08:48 --> 00:08:51

was a hilly area. They waited there until

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

they could attack us.

00:08:54 --> 00:08:55

And they were convinced

00:08:56 --> 00:08:58

that I'm not gonna call anybody. They're convinced

00:08:58 --> 00:09:00

that I'm not talking to you right now.

00:09:00 --> 00:09:01

They don't even know I'm here.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:02

Okay?

00:09:04 --> 00:09:07

And they are more they are humiliated and

00:09:07 --> 00:09:08

they are much less in number. They don't

00:09:08 --> 00:09:09

they're not as big as they think they

00:09:09 --> 00:09:10

are.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:15

And they spent the entire night. He's describing

00:09:15 --> 00:09:18

the event in poem. He's saying, they spent

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

the entire night by the river, by the

00:09:20 --> 00:09:22

water area where the tribe has a water

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

reservoir. They waited there

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

all night staying up.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

They killed us while many of us were

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

making ruku and sajdah. We were just praying

00:09:32 --> 00:09:33

in the middle of the night and they

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

came and started killing us.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:40

Rasulullah

00:09:42 --> 00:09:43

says to him, you shall receive aid.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

Then the prophet shalallahu alaihi wa sallam saw

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

a cloud forming in the sky.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:53

And he said,

00:09:56 --> 00:09:58

He said, this cloud is a sign that

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

things are gonna become easy or we're gonna

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

easily take revenge against baniqaab.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:03

So

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

or be able to help baniqaab.

00:10:10 --> 00:10:11

This is really interesting.

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

Another person from the same tribe, his name

00:10:15 --> 00:10:16

is Ibn Warqa,

00:10:17 --> 00:10:18

came to the Prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

His name is Budayl, actually. Budayl ibn Warqa.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:25

And he knew one more thing. He knew

00:10:25 --> 00:10:28

that it's not just Banu Bakr that attacked,

00:10:28 --> 00:10:31

but Banu Bakr had the endorsement of

00:10:32 --> 00:10:34

people inside Mecca, the leadership of Mecca when

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

they attacked. Okay? So,

00:10:37 --> 00:10:38

so

00:10:49 --> 00:10:51

So he told them what happened. He told

00:10:51 --> 00:10:53

the Prophet what happened and he also told

00:10:53 --> 00:10:53

them

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

that, oh, your Quraysh helped,

00:10:56 --> 00:10:59

that Quraysh supported them. Now he's supposed to

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

go on a business trip and come back.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:03

So he the Maqans think he went on

00:11:03 --> 00:11:04

a business trip. But he took a detour

00:11:04 --> 00:11:05

from the business

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

trip, talked to the Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam,

00:11:07 --> 00:11:09

and told him everything that happened, and came

00:11:09 --> 00:11:11

back pretending he came from a business trip.

00:11:11 --> 00:11:12

Okay?

00:11:14 --> 00:11:16

Then they head back towards Mecca.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:18

So Rasul SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam says to the

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19

people,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

I have a feeling that pretty soon Abu

00:11:24 --> 00:11:27

Sufyan is gonna come over here hoping to

00:11:27 --> 00:11:29

reaffirm our treaty

00:11:29 --> 00:11:32

because they violated the treaty. So Abu Sufyan

00:11:32 --> 00:11:33

is gonna come here, try to negotiate if

00:11:33 --> 00:11:35

we can still keep the treaty even though

00:11:35 --> 00:11:36

they broke it.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

Or give another extension.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

So now they're heading back from their pretend

00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

business trip,

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

and they run into Abu Sufyan in Asfyan.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

And Abu Sufyan is like he knows what

00:11:53 --> 00:11:54

happened in

00:11:55 --> 00:11:55

in

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

the and he's really worried that the Prophet

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

will find out about it. Right? And now

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

he sees these people coming from the direction

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

of Madinah.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03

And he's

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

like,

00:12:07 --> 00:12:10

The Quraysh had sent Abu Sufyan to make

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

sure the Prophet doesn't find out, and they

00:12:11 --> 00:12:12

stay on the treaty.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:15

So he Abu Sufyan is going to protect

00:12:15 --> 00:12:16

the treaty,

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

and Budayl is coming after having told the

00:12:18 --> 00:12:20

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam that they messed

00:12:20 --> 00:12:20

up the treaty.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:24

And they meet together in Asfan. Okay?

00:12:24 --> 00:12:27

So when they meet each other, he says,

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29

Where are you coming from, Buddha?

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

Where where are you coming from? And is

00:12:34 --> 00:12:34

like,

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

I I left from I was just going

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

by the beach, You know, I was just

00:12:40 --> 00:12:43

it was, and I was just spending some

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

time in this valley. This is nice valley.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:47

You see that? It was pretty cool. Sunny

00:12:47 --> 00:12:48

sunny out here.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

So you didn't go see Mohammed?

00:12:57 --> 00:12:58

He goes, This

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

much Arabic you know.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:02

That's why everybody said nobody anybody speaks to

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

you in Arabic. You say, so you you

00:13:04 --> 00:13:05

know this much.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:06

And he says,

00:13:09 --> 00:13:09

And

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

when went on towards,

00:13:11 --> 00:13:13

you know, relaxed to go towards

00:13:27 --> 00:13:29

So basically, Buddha is about to leave and

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

Abu Sufyan says to himself, if he has

00:13:31 --> 00:13:34

certain seeds in his bag, it means he

00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

had a snack in Medina and those seeds

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

are only found in

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38

Medina.

00:13:38 --> 00:13:41

So he quickly he checked his bag quietly,

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

and he found the seeds. He's like,

00:13:43 --> 00:13:44

he was in Medina.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

Like he found an empty bag of laced

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

potato chips and he's like, this he's been

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

to 711. This is bad.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:55

So,

00:13:59 --> 00:14:01

Now he knows that the prophet knows

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

Yeah? So now he comes to meet with

00:14:04 --> 00:14:04

the Prophet

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

to see what's gonna happen. Now the reports

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

are different. I'm getting this from

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

Ibn Hisham's seerah. So he has a certain

00:14:11 --> 00:14:14

sequence. Other scholars have other sequences. He met

00:14:14 --> 00:14:15

with a number of people including the prophet

00:14:15 --> 00:14:18

shalallahu alaihi wa sallam but the sequence with

00:14:18 --> 00:14:20

who he met first and later differs. So

00:14:20 --> 00:14:22

this is the one according to Ibn Hisham.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:22

Okay?

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

So he says,

00:14:29 --> 00:14:31

So the first person he went to is

00:14:31 --> 00:14:34

the house of his own daughter, Habiba. Habiba

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

had migrated to Makkah,

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

Migrated to Abyssinia.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

Habiba is Abu Sufyan's daughter. She became Muslim

00:14:40 --> 00:14:42

and with her husband, they migrated

00:14:43 --> 00:14:46

to, Abyssinia. And her husband then later converted

00:14:46 --> 00:14:48

to Christianity. He left Islam,

00:14:48 --> 00:14:50

and then he died. So she was living

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

alone in Abyssinia.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

And the prophet got wind of that. He

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

found out about that. He proposed to her.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

And Najashi, the king of Abyssinia who had

00:14:57 --> 00:14:58

become Muslim

00:14:59 --> 00:14:59

basically

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

provided the provided the ulima

00:15:03 --> 00:15:04

for that and gave marriage gifts on the

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

behalf.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:07

And so she was now married to the

00:15:07 --> 00:15:07

Prophet

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

and she had come back after

00:15:10 --> 00:15:13

and now she was living in Madinah. And

00:15:13 --> 00:15:14

so he's he's like, my daughter lives here.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

I haven't seen her in years. Maybe I

00:15:16 --> 00:15:18

should go start with my daughter. That's the

00:15:18 --> 00:15:21

easiest, you know, because some connection. You wanna

00:15:21 --> 00:15:23

make a political move? You gotta have some

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

connections. Well, I know the Prophet's wife is

00:15:25 --> 00:15:27

my daughter. I'll start with her. So he

00:15:27 --> 00:15:29

goes to Habiba's house.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

So when he came to the house, they

00:15:37 --> 00:15:39

didn't have furniture like we have furniture nowadays.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

Basically, what they had was some kind of

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

a straw mat,

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

like a straw mat. If you've been to

00:15:45 --> 00:15:48

like South Asian countries, like outside, like

00:15:48 --> 00:15:51

in Pakistan also, like a lot of masjids

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

have the straw musalas.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:55

Right? And in in our this is not

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

the jarbay

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

material. It's like a rough material. Right? And

00:15:58 --> 00:16:00

if you if you lie down on those

00:16:00 --> 00:16:00

straw mats,

00:16:01 --> 00:16:03

somebody's gonna think you got a tattoo because

00:16:04 --> 00:16:06

it gets it leaves an imprint on your

00:16:06 --> 00:16:08

on your skin. Right? So it's rough material.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:10

So they have that, but then on top

00:16:10 --> 00:16:11

of that, they put some cushioning,

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

right, to make it softer, and then they

00:16:13 --> 00:16:15

relax on top of that. And it's it's

00:16:15 --> 00:16:16

a floor based thing.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:19

So he's about to sit there, but he

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

doesn't know that that is the seating where

00:16:20 --> 00:16:21

the Prophet sits.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

And in his own house, this is the

00:16:23 --> 00:16:25

Prophet's house. It's his wife's

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

house. So he's about to sit there. She

00:16:27 --> 00:16:29

says, wait wait wait wait wait. And she

00:16:29 --> 00:16:30

folds up the mattress

00:16:31 --> 00:16:32

and she says, you can sit on the

00:16:32 --> 00:16:33

straws.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:34

Okay?

00:16:35 --> 00:16:36

And he's like,

00:16:36 --> 00:16:37

my daughter.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

I I I don't know.

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

Was I

00:16:49 --> 00:16:52

too good for this mattress or was this

00:16:52 --> 00:16:53

mattress too good for

00:16:54 --> 00:16:55

me? So he's like,

00:16:56 --> 00:16:58

which which is it? And she says,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

No. That's actually the bedding of the messenger

00:17:03 --> 00:17:05

of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:09

And you're a man who's a mushrik in

00:17:09 --> 00:17:10

your filth.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:14

And I can't I can't I can't sully

00:17:14 --> 00:17:17

the the couch of the messenger of Allah

00:17:17 --> 00:17:18

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam with your

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

you can't sit there.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:22

She's telling this to her father.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:23

Okay?

00:17:29 --> 00:17:30

And I didn't want you to sit on

00:17:30 --> 00:17:31

the bedding of the prophet, sallallahu alaihi wa

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

sallam.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38

He said, I swear to God my daughter,

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

something bad has happened to you after after

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

you left me.

00:17:42 --> 00:17:43

You gone bad.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:45

This is not what I expected.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

Obviously he's not gonna stay

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

so he left.

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

So he came he met the prophet,

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

starts talking to the prophet,

00:17:59 --> 00:18:00

And the prophet

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

The prophet didn't say a word back to

00:18:04 --> 00:18:05

him.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:08

He got the complete silent treatment from

00:18:08 --> 00:18:09

the prophet

00:18:11 --> 00:18:12

Okay. So that didn't work.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:14

Maybe I should talk to some of his

00:18:14 --> 00:18:15

companions.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

He goes to Abu Bakr as Siddiq.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:19

He

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

said, he talked to him. Can you talk

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

to the prophet? He won't listen to me.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:25

He's not talking to me. Can you talk

00:18:25 --> 00:18:28

on my behalf to your prophet? Who is

00:18:28 --> 00:18:28

he trying to talk

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

to? Abu

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

Bakr. So so he says,

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

Abu Bakr looked at him and said,

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

yeah, I'm never gonna do that.

00:18:40 --> 00:18:41

And I'll be fired. It's a very strong

00:18:41 --> 00:18:41

negation.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:43

I'm not doing that at all.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:46

Just so you're clear. This is not a

00:18:46 --> 00:18:46

oh

00:18:47 --> 00:18:49

maybe. No no no. Not at all. This

00:18:49 --> 00:18:49

is not happening.

00:18:53 --> 00:18:54

So he's like, Oh, I guess I gotta

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

go to Umar.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

So he

00:19:00 --> 00:19:01

goes to

00:19:05 --> 00:19:08

You think I'm gonna go make a case

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

for you to Allah's Messenger

00:19:16 --> 00:19:19

If I didn't find anything but a pebble,

00:19:19 --> 00:19:21

I would fight you with the pebble.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

Why isn't he fighting him? Because they still

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

have a treaty.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

Right? But he says, if I had nothing

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

but a pebble in my hand, I would

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

kill you with a pebble.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

That's what he's telling him. You wanna negotiate

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

with me?

00:19:35 --> 00:19:35

So now,

00:19:39 --> 00:19:41

So he came to the house of Ali

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

radiAllahu anhu. And Ali is married to who?

00:19:44 --> 00:19:45

Fatima. So this is the house of Ali

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

and Fatima.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

And she's with

00:19:54 --> 00:19:55

Fatima's home

00:19:56 --> 00:19:58

and Fatima's playing with their child, the 5

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

year old Hassan.

00:19:59 --> 00:20:02

So it's Ali, Fatima and Hassan. Okay? They're

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

they're at home. And now Abu Sufyan is

00:20:04 --> 00:20:04

in.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

A child that is playing between her hands.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

You Ali, you are the closest relative I

00:20:17 --> 00:20:18

have left

00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

in Mecca.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

I have come to you in a time

00:20:24 --> 00:20:25

of great need.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:32

I can't possibly go back the way I

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33

came hopeless.

00:20:33 --> 00:20:36

Don't send me back hopeless. That's not possible

00:20:36 --> 00:20:36

for me.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:41

Go make a case for me

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

to God's messenger.

00:20:46 --> 00:20:50

He basically said, modern parlance, I'll say, what

00:20:50 --> 00:20:51

is wrong with you, Abu Sufyan?

00:20:52 --> 00:20:54

You are so done, Abu Sufyan.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

He says,

00:21:03 --> 00:21:04

The Messenger of Allah

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

has made up his mind about something.

00:21:08 --> 00:21:09

We are not in a position to talk

00:21:09 --> 00:21:11

to him about it. What's Ali letting him

00:21:11 --> 00:21:14

know? Not only does the messenger know, he's

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

made up his mind on what to do

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

with you people.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:18

So the news has reached him and the

00:21:18 --> 00:21:21

prophets made up his mind. And there's nobody

00:21:21 --> 00:21:23

who can say anything about it. Okay.

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

So he turns his attention to Fatima

00:21:29 --> 00:21:32

and says, You Bintu Mohammed. You Bintu Mohammed,

00:21:32 --> 00:21:33

daughter of Mohammed.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:39

Could you

00:21:40 --> 00:21:42

take you this this grandchild of yours, this

00:21:42 --> 00:21:43

child of yours,

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

and tell this child to go talk to

00:21:46 --> 00:21:46

your

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

to his grandpa because he knows how much

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

the prophet must have loved his grandson.

00:21:51 --> 00:21:54

And so that way, people will be protected.

00:21:55 --> 00:21:56

This is to protect the people.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:04

This child will become the leader of the

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

Arabs if he can make this peace treaty

00:22:05 --> 00:22:06

happen

00:22:07 --> 00:22:08

until the end of times.

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

Oh, we need you to make him a

00:22:10 --> 00:22:11

leader.

00:22:12 --> 00:22:14

So she says,

00:22:17 --> 00:22:19

She goes, My child is not old enough

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

to do that.

00:22:22 --> 00:22:23

To make peace between people.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:28

And nobody will protect anyone from the Prophet

00:22:28 --> 00:22:28

of Allah

00:22:30 --> 00:22:31

That's not gonna happen.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:35

Then he turned back to Ali,

00:22:36 --> 00:22:37

father of Hassan.

00:22:42 --> 00:22:44

Things have become really hard for me. Listen,

00:22:44 --> 00:22:46

this is not easy for me.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:48

Can you give me any advice?

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

You got anything for me? Like I'm I'm

00:22:51 --> 00:22:52

I don't know what to do here.

00:22:56 --> 00:22:57

Listen,

00:22:57 --> 00:22:59

I don't know what to tell you that

00:22:59 --> 00:23:02

will be of any benefit to you.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:04

You're in the kind of trouble you cannot

00:23:04 --> 00:23:06

get out of and I got nothing for

00:23:06 --> 00:23:06

you.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:11

You are the leader of Mecca.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:13

Is the nickname for people of Mecca, the

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

Quraysh.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

You are the leader of Mecca.

00:23:16 --> 00:23:18

You are their general. You are their governor.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:24

Why don't you go in a public area

00:23:24 --> 00:23:27

and ask the public to protect you?

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

I think I mean, nobody here is listening

00:23:30 --> 00:23:31

to you. Maybe someone in the public will,

00:23:31 --> 00:23:34

you know, I'm pretty I don't know this.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:38

But I'm pretty sure alayhiallahu anhu is trolling

00:23:38 --> 00:23:38

him.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

I'm fairly confident that

00:23:42 --> 00:23:43

like he's like, Just give me some advice.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

He goes, Yeah. Just ask in public.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:48

You know, we have good people here. Somebody

00:23:48 --> 00:23:49

might be able to I can't think of

00:23:49 --> 00:23:50

anything for

00:23:51 --> 00:23:51

you.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

Then you should go back home. After you

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

ask the people publicly then you should go

00:23:56 --> 00:23:57

back home.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:04

God. He said, are you sure that's gonna

00:24:04 --> 00:24:06

be of any sort of is that is

00:24:06 --> 00:24:07

that gonna work?

00:24:08 --> 00:24:08

Is that is

00:24:09 --> 00:24:10

that something that will get me out of

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

this mess?

00:24:13 --> 00:24:14

He said, No. I

00:24:14 --> 00:24:16

swear to God I don't think it will.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:18

That's not what I think.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:22

But I can't think of anything else.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:24

That's all I got for you.

00:24:24 --> 00:24:26

He says, Is your idea gonna work? He

00:24:26 --> 00:24:29

said, No, it's not gonna work, but that's

00:24:29 --> 00:24:30

all I got for you.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

So Abu Sufyan went to Masjid Nabawi.

00:24:38 --> 00:24:39

People.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:44

I am coming to come to you to

00:24:44 --> 00:24:47

have you cause make protection between people.

00:24:49 --> 00:24:51

People didn't respond to him,

00:24:51 --> 00:24:53

so he just got on his camel and

00:24:53 --> 00:24:53

left.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:57

Quresh then he finally got back to Quresh.

00:24:57 --> 00:24:58

They said,

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

So what happened?

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

Tell us what happened.

00:25:01 --> 00:25:01

He

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

said I went to Mohammed and spoke to

00:25:04 --> 00:25:04

him.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

He he didn't say nothing.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:17

So I went to I went to Omar

00:25:17 --> 00:25:18

Omar.

00:25:19 --> 00:25:19

And

00:25:20 --> 00:25:22

he said, I didn't find any good with

00:25:22 --> 00:25:23

Abu Bakr. And when I went to Abu

00:25:23 --> 00:25:25

Bakr, I found him to be the worst

00:25:25 --> 00:25:27

enemy we ever had. Like, there's nobody worse

00:25:27 --> 00:25:28

than him.

00:25:31 --> 00:25:31

Well,

00:25:33 --> 00:25:33

so

00:25:35 --> 00:25:37

I did go to Ali. He seemed the

00:25:37 --> 00:25:37

most receptive.

00:25:41 --> 00:25:43

He told me to do something. I tried

00:25:43 --> 00:25:43

it.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:46

Now he doesn't say it. He just say,

00:25:46 --> 00:25:48

he told me to try something and I

00:25:48 --> 00:25:49

tried it and he's hoping they're not gonna

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

ask more.

00:25:51 --> 00:25:51

So

00:25:52 --> 00:25:53

and he says,

00:25:57 --> 00:25:58

he says, I swear to god, I don't

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

know if it's gonna work or not but

00:25:59 --> 00:26:00

I mean I tried it.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:02

And they said, what did he tell you

00:26:02 --> 00:26:03

to do?

00:26:04 --> 00:26:05

What did he tell you to do?

00:26:07 --> 00:26:09

He said, he told me to go seek

00:26:09 --> 00:26:10

protection from people in public.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

I did it.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:19

Muhammad. So did Muhammad allow you to do

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

that? Like he just allowed you to make

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

an announcement in public and,

00:26:22 --> 00:26:23

or he did he tell you to do

00:26:23 --> 00:26:25

it? He goes, no.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

How much more can somebody play with you,

00:26:33 --> 00:26:33

man?

00:26:35 --> 00:26:36

You guys so played

00:26:36 --> 00:26:37

in public.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:41

They said, whatever he's

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

this thing you said

00:26:43 --> 00:26:44

is not gonna help you.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

He said, no, no, no. I'm not a

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

fool, but I didn't have anything else I

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

could do.

00:26:52 --> 00:26:53

This is Abu Sufyan,

00:26:55 --> 00:26:56

the leader of Quresh.

00:26:57 --> 00:26:58

The most powerful man in the region.

00:26:59 --> 00:27:02

And he's terrified that the treaty is broken.

00:27:03 --> 00:27:06

And he's come and he's been humiliated multiple

00:27:06 --> 00:27:07

times,

00:27:07 --> 00:27:08

multiple times.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

This is the same Abu Sufyan who was

00:27:11 --> 00:27:14

talking trash when the Muslims were heading up

00:27:14 --> 00:27:16

the hill in the battle of Uhud.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:19

This is the Abu Sufyan under whose watch

00:27:19 --> 00:27:21

the bodies of the Muslims were mutilated.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:25

The dead bodies of the Muslims were mutilated.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:26

Aruhud.

00:27:26 --> 00:27:27

Same of Usufiyah.

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

Now he's coming and begging.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:33

Now he's coming and trying to be dignified.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:36

And the first humiliation, if you take this

00:27:36 --> 00:27:39

account of things, the first humiliation comes from

00:27:39 --> 00:27:41

his own daughter. You're not even good enough

00:27:41 --> 00:27:43

to sit on the same mattress.

00:27:44 --> 00:27:46

You're not even good enough for that.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:49

Why don't you go beg people for protection?

00:27:50 --> 00:27:52

Why don't you become a beggar on our

00:27:52 --> 00:27:53

streets?

00:27:54 --> 00:27:55

And he took it.

00:27:55 --> 00:27:56

He took it.

00:27:59 --> 00:28:01

I want you to understand where we are

00:28:01 --> 00:28:02

in the sila.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:05

Way,

00:28:05 --> 00:28:06

many years ago,

00:28:07 --> 00:28:10

Many to almost 20 year 18 years ago,

00:28:10 --> 00:28:11

17 years ago.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

The Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi Salam was in Makkah.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

And Allah revealed to him,

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

They called the prophet insane.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:27

Yeah.

00:28:28 --> 00:28:30

By Allah's blessing, you're not insane.

00:28:31 --> 00:28:32

Allah said to the prophet,

00:28:32 --> 00:28:35

soon you will see and they will all

00:28:35 --> 00:28:36

see

00:28:36 --> 00:28:37

who seems insane.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:42

What Abu Sufyan did right now, didn't that

00:28:42 --> 00:28:43

seem insane?

00:28:44 --> 00:28:44

Right?

00:28:45 --> 00:28:47

And Allah told the messenger of Allah

00:28:48 --> 00:28:49

17, 18 years ago,

00:28:50 --> 00:28:52

early in the sila, second revelation.

00:29:09 --> 00:29:09

You'll see.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:13

And this decade and a little more than

00:29:13 --> 00:29:15

a decade because suratul kalam was one of

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16

the first revelations,

00:29:16 --> 00:29:18

one of the first revelations.

00:29:19 --> 00:29:20

And now they're

00:29:20 --> 00:29:22

seeing it with their own eyes. Mecca hasn't

00:29:22 --> 00:29:23

been conquered

00:29:23 --> 00:29:26

yet. Mecca has not It wasn't conquered immediately

00:29:26 --> 00:29:26

after.

00:29:27 --> 00:29:29

But the Quraysh are living in

00:29:30 --> 00:29:31

fear. They're terrified.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

Allah said another place,

00:29:38 --> 00:29:39

We know what the earth takes away from

00:29:39 --> 00:29:40

them.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:42

Their borders are shrinking.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:44

Their region is shrinking.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:48

They're living in a state of anxiety.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:50

When is the attack coming?

00:29:51 --> 00:29:52

When is the conquest coming?

00:29:53 --> 00:29:56

I wanted to share There's there's a lot

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

more that I want to share but I

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

I don't wanna skim it. I want to

00:29:59 --> 00:30:01

actually go in great detail inshaAllah from here,

00:30:01 --> 00:30:03

from this event all the way to when

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04

Makkah was conquered.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:06

And the account, at least in the ibn

00:30:06 --> 00:30:08

Hisham account and the ibn Ishaq account and

00:30:08 --> 00:30:10

some of the other accounts, just kind of

00:30:10 --> 00:30:12

put together. And I want to read through

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

them with you. But this

00:30:14 --> 00:30:16

series wasn't enough time for that. So I'm

00:30:16 --> 00:30:18

going to hold that off for another time.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:19

But I will take you somewhere else before

00:30:19 --> 00:30:22

I conclude this series, at least for for

00:30:22 --> 00:30:22

now.

00:30:23 --> 00:30:25

And that is the connection I told you

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

early on to Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:30:28 --> 00:30:30

Ibrahim alayhis salam built this house so that

00:30:30 --> 00:30:33

human beings from around the world would find

00:30:33 --> 00:30:33

Allah.

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

And when he was building this Kaaba, he

00:30:36 --> 00:30:37

was making that dua.

00:30:38 --> 00:30:40

He was making that dua and Allah answered

00:30:40 --> 00:30:42

that dua through Rasulullah

00:30:44 --> 00:30:46

Ibrahim alaihi wasallam saw a dream

00:30:47 --> 00:30:48

earlier on in his life

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

or later on in his life rather. He

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

saw a dream that he is slaughtering his

00:30:54 --> 00:30:55

son.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

And that dream

00:30:58 --> 00:30:58

was then

00:30:59 --> 00:30:59

fulfilled

00:31:00 --> 00:31:02

by him slaughtering an animal instead.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:05

And that son was Ismail.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:09

And that's important because Ismail alaihis salam and

00:31:09 --> 00:31:12

Ibrahim alaihis salam together started building the

00:31:12 --> 00:31:13

Kaaba.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:16

But Ibrahim alaihi salam had another son.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

Another another son. Ishaq.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:22

And Ishaq is in a different region, even

00:31:22 --> 00:31:23

though he also knows about the He

00:31:26 --> 00:31:26

knows about the Kaaba too. Ishaq's son is

00:31:26 --> 00:31:27

Yaqub. Yaqub's son is Yusuf. Yusuf has his

00:31:27 --> 00:31:27

brothers.

00:31:31 --> 00:31:33

From their brothers come prophets.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:39

They get prophets all the way until Isa

00:31:39 --> 00:31:42

alaihi salam. But let's talk about Yusuf for

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

a second. Yusuf alaihi salam also saw a

00:31:44 --> 00:31:44

dream.

00:31:46 --> 00:31:48

So in the Quran, there are 3 dreams.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:53

The dream the prophet saw that he's making

00:31:55 --> 00:31:57

umrah. The dream that Ibrahim alaihi wasallam saw

00:31:57 --> 00:31:58

that he's slaughtering

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

his son

00:32:01 --> 00:32:04

and the dream that Yusuf saw that he

00:32:04 --> 00:32:04

is

00:32:05 --> 00:32:07

the 11 stars, the sun and the moon.

00:32:07 --> 00:32:09

Yeah? 3 dreams. Okay.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

Now Ibrahim

00:32:14 --> 00:32:15

is the father of

00:32:16 --> 00:32:16

Ishmael

00:32:17 --> 00:32:19

and he is also the father in a

00:32:19 --> 00:32:20

sense of Yusuf.

00:32:22 --> 00:32:23

The first dream,

00:32:23 --> 00:32:24

Ibrahim

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

dream of slaughtering the animal,

00:32:27 --> 00:32:30

or which actually the interpretation was slaughtering the

00:32:30 --> 00:32:33

animal, became the fundamental ritual of hajj. Yes

00:32:33 --> 00:32:34

or no?

00:32:35 --> 00:32:35

Okay.

00:32:36 --> 00:32:37

So when we do hajj,

00:32:37 --> 00:32:40

what marks that we've completed our hajj?

00:32:41 --> 00:32:43

Slaughtering the animal and then completing the monastic,

00:32:43 --> 00:32:45

you know, shaving our heads. Now we did

00:32:45 --> 00:32:46

it. Okay.

00:32:47 --> 00:32:48

When Rasulullah

00:32:49 --> 00:32:50

saw this dream,

00:32:51 --> 00:32:53

do you see how this dream is directly

00:32:53 --> 00:32:55

related to dream of Ibrahim alaihis salam?

00:32:57 --> 00:32:58

It's also interesting

00:32:58 --> 00:32:59

that in his dream,

00:33:00 --> 00:33:02

the Quran's description of his dream, the Prophet

00:33:03 --> 00:33:04

saw a dream that they're going to enter

00:33:04 --> 00:33:06

al Masjid Al Haram and they'll be shaving

00:33:06 --> 00:33:07

their heads.

00:33:07 --> 00:33:10

What's not mentioned? Slaughtering the animal.

00:33:10 --> 00:33:12

But the slaughtering of the animal is mentioned

00:33:12 --> 00:33:14

in the other dream. Which dream?

00:33:14 --> 00:33:15

The dream of

00:33:15 --> 00:33:17

Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:20

Rasool alaihis salam by conquering Mecca

00:33:20 --> 00:33:23

and which eventually happens, now it's on the

00:33:23 --> 00:33:24

verge of happening,

00:33:24 --> 00:33:27

he's actually fulfilling the dream of Ibrahim alaihis

00:33:27 --> 00:33:28

salam.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

He's actually fulfilling that dream.

00:33:32 --> 00:33:35

And that dream involved Ibrahim alaihis salam and

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

who else?

00:33:37 --> 00:33:37

Ismail.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:40

Ibrahim and? Ismail.

00:33:40 --> 00:33:41

And their

00:33:42 --> 00:33:45

their mission together, their dream together is what

00:33:45 --> 00:33:47

Rasul salallahu alaihi wasalam is fulfilling. And he's

00:33:47 --> 00:33:49

the child of Ismail alaihi wasalam. He's from

00:33:49 --> 00:33:51

that line. But Ibrahim alaihi wasalam had another

00:33:51 --> 00:33:52

lineage

00:33:53 --> 00:33:55

under him. Which lineage is that? Isaac,

00:33:56 --> 00:33:57

Yaqub,

00:33:57 --> 00:33:59

Yusuf. And Yusuf also saw a dream.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:01

What was Yusuf's dream?

00:34:02 --> 00:34:03

Eleven stars, the sun, and the moon will

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

do sajdah.

00:34:04 --> 00:34:06

What did that dream mean at the end

00:34:06 --> 00:34:07

of Surat Yusuf?

00:34:09 --> 00:34:12

His brothers are going to be humbled,

00:34:12 --> 00:34:14

and he's going to be in a position

00:34:14 --> 00:34:16

of power over them. And he will say

00:34:16 --> 00:34:18

to them, today, no harm shall come upon

00:34:18 --> 00:34:19

you.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:21

Today, no harm. So he will be able

00:34:21 --> 00:34:23

to overpower his brothers

00:34:23 --> 00:34:24

eventually

00:34:24 --> 00:34:26

after they tried to kill him, after they

00:34:26 --> 00:34:29

tried to expel him, after the all the

00:34:30 --> 00:34:32

things he's gonna go through, grief after grief

00:34:32 --> 00:34:35

after grief, and Allah will bring them back,

00:34:36 --> 00:34:38

and they will be humbled before him.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:42

Do you see, when the prophet conquers Mecca,

00:34:43 --> 00:34:45

do you know he recited ayat of Surat

00:34:45 --> 00:34:45

Yousaf?

00:34:47 --> 00:34:48

And he said,

00:34:50 --> 00:34:52

No harm shall come upon you today. Who

00:34:52 --> 00:34:54

said these words before him?

00:34:55 --> 00:34:57

Yusuf alaihis salam. And Yusuf said them the

00:34:57 --> 00:34:58

day his dream was fulfilled.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

So when Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam fulfilled his

00:35:03 --> 00:35:04

dream,

00:35:05 --> 00:35:07

he was also fulfilling the dream of Ibrahim

00:35:07 --> 00:35:08

and Ismail

00:35:09 --> 00:35:11

and he was also repeating the dream of

00:35:11 --> 00:35:12

Yusuf

00:35:12 --> 00:35:15

alaihis salam by overpowering his brothers, the Quraysh.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:18

And in doing so,

00:35:19 --> 00:35:19

Rasul

00:35:20 --> 00:35:22

is the complete embodiment

00:35:22 --> 00:35:23

of both lineages

00:35:23 --> 00:35:24

of Ibrahim

00:35:25 --> 00:35:25

the Ismail

00:35:26 --> 00:35:28

lineage and the use of and from the

00:35:28 --> 00:35:30

use of lineage, what do you get? From

00:35:30 --> 00:35:32

the use of lineage, you get Musa alaihi

00:35:32 --> 00:35:33

salaam and you get

00:35:34 --> 00:35:35

Isa

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

alayhi

00:35:38 --> 00:35:38

salaam.

00:35:40 --> 00:35:40

Right?

00:35:43 --> 00:35:44

So this dream,

00:35:45 --> 00:35:47

the fulfillment of this dream is actually the

00:35:47 --> 00:35:48

completion

00:35:48 --> 00:35:51

of the legacy of Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:35:52 --> 00:35:53

That's actually what this is.

00:35:54 --> 00:35:56

This is why we call this religion, the

00:35:56 --> 00:35:57

religion of our father,

00:35:57 --> 00:35:58

Ibrahim.

00:35:59 --> 00:36:01

This is why everything in our religion

00:36:02 --> 00:36:04

goes back to Ibrahim alayhi salaam.

00:36:05 --> 00:36:07

The 5 prayers are

00:36:09 --> 00:36:12

that's a dua of Ibrahim alaihis salam. The

00:36:12 --> 00:36:13

the is

00:36:15 --> 00:36:17

actually the mission of Ibrahim alaihis salam when

00:36:17 --> 00:36:19

he all the idols. By the way, Rasul

00:36:19 --> 00:36:21

salallahu alaihi wasalam when he conquers Mecca, he's

00:36:21 --> 00:36:22

going to go 1 by 1 as he's

00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

making tawaf, and he's going to be destroying

00:36:24 --> 00:36:25

what?

00:36:26 --> 00:36:28

And who had destroyed idols before him? Which

00:36:28 --> 00:36:30

Prophet do you know of that destroyed idols

00:36:30 --> 00:36:31

before him?

00:36:32 --> 00:36:35

Ibrahim alaihis salaam. He is repeating and fulfilling

00:36:36 --> 00:36:38

the legacy of his father, Ibrahim

00:36:40 --> 00:36:41

So amazing.

00:36:42 --> 00:36:44

Is when he's destroying the idols.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:49

From Ibrahim alaihis salam. You know the word,

00:36:49 --> 00:36:49

the

00:36:50 --> 00:36:52

Zakah? The first the earliest mention of zakah

00:36:52 --> 00:36:54

in the Quran is from Ismail alaihis

00:36:54 --> 00:36:56

salam. From Ismail alaihis salam.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:03

He used to command his family to pray

00:37:03 --> 00:37:04

and to make zakah, to give zakah. What

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

does the qulam keep saying?

00:37:07 --> 00:37:08

And that phrase

00:37:09 --> 00:37:12

is a reminder of Ismail alaihi wa sallam.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:13

Where did Ismail learned that from?

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

Ibrahim alaihis salam. That goes

00:37:17 --> 00:37:18

and now,

00:37:20 --> 00:37:20

the

00:37:21 --> 00:37:23

go back to Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:24

Then there's Ramadan.

00:37:25 --> 00:37:27

The 4th pillar of Islam. Ramadan. Fasting in

00:37:27 --> 00:37:28

Ramadan.

00:37:29 --> 00:37:31

Why do we fast in Ramadan? Because the

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

Quran was revealed

00:37:33 --> 00:37:34

in Ramadan.

00:37:34 --> 00:37:37

Why was the Quran revealed? Because Ibrahim alayhi

00:37:37 --> 00:37:38

sallam made a dua, you Allah send a

00:37:38 --> 00:37:40

messenger who will recite your ayat.

00:37:42 --> 00:37:44

And 1000 of years later, Allah answered that

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

dua and the Quran started being revealed.

00:37:47 --> 00:37:49

Ramadan is a celebration that if Allah answered

00:37:49 --> 00:37:51

the du'a of Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:37:52 --> 00:37:54

That's the 4th pillar of Islam. The 5th

00:37:54 --> 00:37:56

pillar of Islam is Hajj.

00:37:57 --> 00:37:58

In Hajj, we do tawaf of the house

00:37:58 --> 00:38:00

built by Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:38:00 --> 00:38:02

We do sai of the of the wife

00:38:02 --> 00:38:04

of Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:38:04 --> 00:38:06

We pelt the shaitan

00:38:07 --> 00:38:09

the way he pelted it on his way

00:38:09 --> 00:38:11

to slaughter his son. We sacrificed the animal

00:38:12 --> 00:38:14

fulfilling the dream of everything in hajj is

00:38:14 --> 00:38:14

about whom?

00:38:15 --> 00:38:16

Ibrahim alaihis salam.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:20

Ibrahim. And so

00:38:21 --> 00:38:24

our entire religion is actually directly connected

00:38:25 --> 00:38:27

to Ibrahim alayhi wasalam. We are the Abrahamic

00:38:27 --> 00:38:28

faith.

00:38:28 --> 00:38:31

And Rasool alayhi wasalam is the fulfillment. What

00:38:31 --> 00:38:34

was started by Ibrahim alayhi wasalam is actually

00:38:34 --> 00:38:34

being fulfilled

00:38:35 --> 00:38:37

by Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:38:38 --> 00:38:40

Connecting all of this together is really important

00:38:40 --> 00:38:41

for another reason.

00:38:43 --> 00:38:45

A lot of Christians and Jews believe

00:38:45 --> 00:38:48

the Jews actually in their earlier literature, their

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

scholarly literature

00:38:50 --> 00:38:51

were very clear that the son that was

00:38:51 --> 00:38:53

supposed to be slaughtered

00:38:53 --> 00:38:54

was in fact Ishmael.

00:38:56 --> 00:38:57

But that was a problem

00:38:58 --> 00:39:01

because if it's Ishmael, then Ishmael's lineage is

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

blessed.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:04

But they don't want the the children of

00:39:04 --> 00:39:06

Ishmael to be blessed. They want the children

00:39:06 --> 00:39:07

of

00:39:07 --> 00:39:09

Isaac to be blessed. So they had to

00:39:09 --> 00:39:11

change Ishmael to what?

00:39:12 --> 00:39:12

To Isaac.

00:39:13 --> 00:39:15

But if Isaac is the son to be

00:39:15 --> 00:39:17

slaughtered, the ritual of slaughter would have been

00:39:17 --> 00:39:18

continued where?

00:39:19 --> 00:39:20

With them.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:22

And

00:39:22 --> 00:39:24

the the the biblical account, there's there's a

00:39:24 --> 00:39:26

book in Arabic. Those of you who read

00:39:26 --> 00:39:28

Arabic, please get a hold of this book.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:29

Arat yus sahihifimanhu

00:39:30 --> 00:39:30

adhabih,

00:39:31 --> 00:39:33

the correct position and who was slaughtered.

00:39:34 --> 00:39:36

The correct position and who was slaughtered.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:39

And Hamiduddin Farahi wrote a brilliant book on

00:39:39 --> 00:39:41

this subject. The first part of this book

00:39:41 --> 00:39:44

is just Jewish scholarship proving that it was

00:39:44 --> 00:39:44

Ishmael.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

The second part of it is historical evidence

00:39:48 --> 00:39:51

and even quranic evidence proving it was Ishmael

00:39:51 --> 00:39:51

alaihis salam.

00:39:52 --> 00:39:55

It's it's it's some remarkable book. It's I

00:39:55 --> 00:39:57

think some version of this has also been

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

translated. I can't remember the name of it

00:39:59 --> 00:40:01

but I'll I'll post it up online inshallah

00:40:01 --> 00:40:02

on my Facebook or something

00:40:03 --> 00:40:04

Because some version of that has been translated.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:07

Why is this important? Because Jews believed

00:40:07 --> 00:40:08

that the chosen

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

child of Abraham

00:40:11 --> 00:40:12

is Isaac.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:16

And the curse descendant, the illegitimate descendant of

00:40:16 --> 00:40:17

Abraham is

00:40:17 --> 00:40:20

Ishmael. So they want Ishmael to look so

00:40:20 --> 00:40:21

bad,

00:40:21 --> 00:40:23

they're even willing to say their father had

00:40:23 --> 00:40:24

an illegitimate

00:40:26 --> 00:40:28

child. That's how badly they want Ishmael not

00:40:28 --> 00:40:29

to be legitimized.

00:40:29 --> 00:40:31

Even though when the bible says, sacrifice your

00:40:31 --> 00:40:34

only son, the Bible also says, Ishmael was

00:40:34 --> 00:40:36

14 years older than Isaac.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:40

So there's no way that the word only

00:40:40 --> 00:40:42

son could be used for

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

Ismail. So they said, No. No. No. This

00:40:44 --> 00:40:46

means your only legitimate son.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:50

And then when all the other places in

00:40:50 --> 00:40:52

which the Bible actually describes the marriage

00:40:52 --> 00:40:54

of Hagar of Hajar,

00:40:54 --> 00:40:56

which means it's a marriage, which means he's

00:40:56 --> 00:40:57

not an illegitimate son.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:00

Let's just let's not talk about that.

00:41:02 --> 00:41:04

And then they went to a valley of

00:41:04 --> 00:41:06

they went to a valley where they ran

00:41:06 --> 00:41:07

between

00:41:07 --> 00:41:08

Shefa and Murrah.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:17

It was a valley of burnt rock apparently

00:41:17 --> 00:41:19

in Jerusalem. You see burnt rocks in Jerusalem?

00:41:19 --> 00:41:21

Where do you see burnt burnt rocks?

00:41:22 --> 00:41:23

By a well.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:25

This is the biblical version.

00:41:26 --> 00:41:28

Just change a couple of words here and

00:41:28 --> 00:41:30

there, turn it into a different story.

00:41:31 --> 00:41:34

The Quran is restoring the the original legacy.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:37

And by by giving Islam victory,

00:41:38 --> 00:41:40

by restoring the Kaaba, the house of Abraham

00:41:40 --> 00:41:42

has been restored to its original place.

00:41:43 --> 00:41:45

A message has been sent to all of

00:41:45 --> 00:41:47

the Christian world and all of the Jewish

00:41:47 --> 00:41:48

world

00:41:48 --> 00:41:50

that if you are loyal to your father

00:41:50 --> 00:41:50

Ibrahim,

00:41:51 --> 00:41:52

this is the religion.

00:41:54 --> 00:41:54

When

00:41:55 --> 00:41:57

the messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wasallam is

00:41:57 --> 00:41:59

starting to send letters

00:41:59 --> 00:42:01

to the rulers after

00:42:02 --> 00:42:03

when he's starting to send letters to the

00:42:03 --> 00:42:06

rulers, they're not getting years years of dawah.

00:42:07 --> 00:42:09

They're just getting they're getting invited to come

00:42:09 --> 00:42:10

look at Mecca.

00:42:11 --> 00:42:13

That's what they're getting why? Because Allah has

00:42:13 --> 00:42:15

proven his miracle. He has fulfilled the prayer

00:42:15 --> 00:42:17

of Abraham that you know about in your

00:42:17 --> 00:42:18

books all this time.

00:42:23 --> 00:42:25

This was an invitation to the Jewish and

00:42:25 --> 00:42:26

Christian civilizations.

00:42:28 --> 00:42:29

Paganism has brought to an end.

00:42:30 --> 00:42:31

Paganism came to an end

00:42:32 --> 00:42:34

And by the end of this surah, the

00:42:34 --> 00:42:35

concern isn't even the pagans.

00:42:36 --> 00:42:37

How do we know the concern is no

00:42:37 --> 00:42:39

longer the pagans at the end of this

00:42:39 --> 00:42:40

surah? What's been referenced?

00:42:43 --> 00:42:45

And That clearly means now this is internationalized,

00:42:46 --> 00:42:47

and the Jewish and

00:42:51 --> 00:42:52

civilization.

00:42:52 --> 00:42:54

They're the ones being addressed.

00:42:54 --> 00:42:55

Come see.

00:42:56 --> 00:42:58

Come see what the the legacy of Abraham

00:42:58 --> 00:42:59

actually was.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:02

It's been restored not just in words, in

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

practice.

00:43:03 --> 00:43:06

Come see what the sacrifice was all about.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:09

Now what did this turn into? The Jews

00:43:09 --> 00:43:11

did not want to acknowledge Ismail

00:43:12 --> 00:43:14

because they knew the prayer that one Messenger

00:43:14 --> 00:43:15

will finally come and he will be from

00:43:15 --> 00:43:16

the line of Ismail,

00:43:17 --> 00:43:18

and the favor is taken from them. They

00:43:18 --> 00:43:20

feel like the favor was taken from them.

00:43:20 --> 00:43:22

They're the chosen people. How could you choose

00:43:22 --> 00:43:23

someone who's not from our descendants?

00:43:24 --> 00:43:24

That

00:43:24 --> 00:43:26

means we're not chosen anymore.

00:43:27 --> 00:43:29

So our special status goes away, which is

00:43:29 --> 00:43:31

the reason for rejecting Muhammad

00:43:32 --> 00:43:33

I even know of rabbis now

00:43:34 --> 00:43:36

that openly say, Muhammad is a messenger.

00:43:37 --> 00:43:39

Openly, Muhammad is a Messenger of Allah.

00:43:40 --> 00:43:41

Just not for us.

00:43:42 --> 00:43:44

But He is a Messenger of Allah. No

00:43:44 --> 00:43:44

doubt about it.

00:43:45 --> 00:43:47

You'll see he fulfills all the sign. Of

00:43:47 --> 00:43:48

course Quran is the word of God.

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

You know. And when you get your own

00:43:51 --> 00:43:53

hand, look up Rabbi

00:43:53 --> 00:43:55

Abramson on Facebook.

00:43:55 --> 00:43:57

He's got a degree in hadith too. He

00:43:57 --> 00:44:00

tries to correlate hadith with quotes in the

00:44:00 --> 00:44:01

Talmud and Torah

00:44:02 --> 00:44:03

all the time.

00:44:06 --> 00:44:06

So that's there.

00:44:07 --> 00:44:09

But on the other side,

00:44:09 --> 00:44:10

what did the Christians do?

00:44:11 --> 00:44:12

The Christians

00:44:12 --> 00:44:15

in more recent times, they really wanna delegitimize

00:44:15 --> 00:44:15

Islam.

00:44:16 --> 00:44:18

Islam is the religion of the devil.

00:44:19 --> 00:44:21

That's because it makes total sense because

00:44:22 --> 00:44:24

he is the child of Ishmael and Ishmael

00:44:24 --> 00:44:26

is the cursed child of Abraham, so that's

00:44:26 --> 00:44:28

the cursed religion.

00:44:30 --> 00:44:32

And all of this because the child that

00:44:32 --> 00:44:34

was chosen for the slaughter

00:44:35 --> 00:44:38

in Abraham's dream was Isaac, it wasn't Ishmael.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:42

So the entire narrative that

00:44:42 --> 00:44:43

Islam is cursed

00:44:44 --> 00:44:45

is because

00:44:45 --> 00:44:47

the one that was chosen to be slaughtered

00:44:47 --> 00:44:49

was not Isma'il that was

00:44:50 --> 00:44:53

This is their entire narrative, the entire all

00:44:53 --> 00:44:55

the stuff happening in the Middle East right

00:44:55 --> 00:44:56

now.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:57

Every

00:44:58 --> 00:45:00

when you look at some of the hard

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

line senators in the United States government today,

00:45:03 --> 00:45:04

I said, we're just fulfilling the word of

00:45:04 --> 00:45:05

God.

00:45:06 --> 00:45:08

Bible says, that's what's gonna happen. It's go

00:45:08 --> 00:45:09

it's going down,

00:45:10 --> 00:45:10

you know.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:13

Why are the Israelites chosen? Because

00:45:14 --> 00:45:15

the

00:45:15 --> 00:45:18

father of the Israelites, Isaac was chosen for

00:45:18 --> 00:45:18

the sacrifice.

00:45:19 --> 00:45:21

It's all about who was chosen.

00:45:21 --> 00:45:23

For them it's all about who was chosen.

00:45:23 --> 00:45:25

It's all about lineage.

00:45:26 --> 00:45:29

The biblical worldview is all about lineage. The

00:45:29 --> 00:45:31

Qur'an's world view is all about submission to

00:45:31 --> 00:45:33

Allah, surrender to Allah,

00:45:33 --> 00:45:34

humility to Allah,

00:45:38 --> 00:45:40

Did the Quran care what the lineage of

00:45:40 --> 00:45:41

the followers of the Prophet

00:45:42 --> 00:45:44

This one's from Persia, this one's from Abyssinia,

00:45:44 --> 00:45:46

this one's from this tribe, this one's from

00:45:46 --> 00:45:48

that tribe, this one used to be a

00:45:48 --> 00:45:49

rabbi, this one used to be a priest,

00:45:49 --> 00:45:51

this one used to be a pagan.

00:45:51 --> 00:45:54

Doesn't matter what lineage you come from because

00:45:54 --> 00:45:55

the only thing that gives you, that makes

00:45:55 --> 00:45:58

you blessed, anointed, if you wanna use Christian

00:45:58 --> 00:45:59

terminology,

00:46:00 --> 00:46:02

the only thing that blesses you is your

00:46:02 --> 00:46:03

repentance.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:06

That's it. Nothing else. There's no special status

00:46:06 --> 00:46:07

of anybody.

00:46:07 --> 00:46:09

There's no special status.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:12

This is the message with which the Quran

00:46:12 --> 00:46:12

came.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:14

And this is what was established.

00:46:14 --> 00:46:17

By establishing this victory on the Kaaba,

00:46:17 --> 00:46:19

bringing this victory about in the Kaaba and

00:46:19 --> 00:46:22

sending letters to international rulers and spreading Islam.

00:46:22 --> 00:46:24

You know what the Quran did? The Quran

00:46:24 --> 00:46:26

for the first time for the first time,

00:46:27 --> 00:46:29

the religion was

00:46:29 --> 00:46:31

2 things used to happen. Either religion was

00:46:31 --> 00:46:33

an ethnic thing. So my tribe has this

00:46:33 --> 00:46:35

religion, your tribe has that religion. That was

00:46:35 --> 00:46:37

one way religion was. Or religion was a

00:46:37 --> 00:46:39

government thing. This is the king's religion, you

00:46:39 --> 00:46:40

better follow it.

00:46:41 --> 00:46:43

So either it came from the tribe or

00:46:43 --> 00:46:44

it came from the government.

00:46:45 --> 00:46:47

That's how that's how religion was. For the

00:46:47 --> 00:46:49

first time, religion is coming from conviction.

00:46:50 --> 00:46:53

People are being asked to study, to look,

00:46:53 --> 00:46:54

to think,

00:46:54 --> 00:46:55

to explore.

00:46:56 --> 00:46:57

Christianity

00:46:57 --> 00:47:00

was dominating the world and you couldn't have

00:47:00 --> 00:47:01

access to the Bible.

00:47:02 --> 00:47:05

The rabbis didn't give the average believer of

00:47:05 --> 00:47:07

the rabbinical tradition, the Jewish tradition, they didn't

00:47:07 --> 00:47:09

give them access to their books.

00:47:10 --> 00:47:11

There were asfa rolled up.

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

What did the Quran do? The

00:47:14 --> 00:47:16

pen is gonna keep on writing. This will

00:47:16 --> 00:47:19

become a religion that will spread literacy,

00:47:19 --> 00:47:19

education,

00:47:20 --> 00:47:20

civilization.

00:47:21 --> 00:47:24

And that all coming back to one thing,

00:47:24 --> 00:47:27

the Du'aib Ibrahim alaihis salam, the Kaaba is

00:47:27 --> 00:47:29

ready. The center for the guidance of humanity

00:47:29 --> 00:47:30

is ready.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:34

When we you know, I I I haven't

00:47:34 --> 00:47:35

gone to Amra in a couple of years,

00:47:35 --> 00:47:37

but whenever I go,

00:47:38 --> 00:47:40

there's 2 things on my mind when I

00:47:40 --> 00:47:40

go.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:42

1, 1, I'm just staring at the Kaaba

00:47:42 --> 00:47:44

and I'm thinking about Ibrahim alayhi sanaal

00:47:45 --> 00:47:47

and how there was a time where he

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

was standing here,

00:47:50 --> 00:47:51

and it was just him and his son.

00:47:53 --> 00:47:55

There's nobody This is just empty desert

00:47:55 --> 00:47:57

and they're just bringing one rock at a

00:47:57 --> 00:47:58

time and they're

00:47:59 --> 00:48:00

putting it in its place

00:48:01 --> 00:48:03

and he's done and he's making this dua.

00:48:04 --> 00:48:06

The people will come here from all corners

00:48:06 --> 00:48:07

of the world.

00:48:09 --> 00:48:11

And for 1000 of years, Allah did not

00:48:11 --> 00:48:12

answer that dua.

00:48:13 --> 00:48:16

1000 of years that place was empty or

00:48:16 --> 00:48:17

it was filled with people that are doing

00:48:17 --> 00:48:18

shirk, isn't it?

00:48:20 --> 00:48:23

And finally Allah sent his last messenger

00:48:25 --> 00:48:27

and he opened that house.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:28

He opened

00:48:29 --> 00:48:31

the doors to Jannah got opened by the

00:48:31 --> 00:48:33

doors of the Kaaba getting opened.

00:48:34 --> 00:48:36

That those doors got opened. And now the

00:48:36 --> 00:48:38

world can come and they can come to

00:48:38 --> 00:48:40

the religion of Ibrahim alaihis salam. Why why

00:48:40 --> 00:48:42

is Ibrahim alaihis salam so important?

00:48:44 --> 00:48:46

Rasool alaihi sallam was sent to Arabia, right?

00:48:47 --> 00:48:49

Which region was Ibrahim alaihi sallam sent to?

00:48:52 --> 00:48:53

He wasn't sent to anywhere.

00:48:54 --> 00:48:55

He went one place

00:48:55 --> 00:48:57

then he went another place then he went

00:48:57 --> 00:48:59

another place then he went another place.

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

He was an ummah by himself.

00:49:05 --> 00:49:07

And when he built the Kaaba, did he

00:49:07 --> 00:49:09

say the local people should come here, the

00:49:09 --> 00:49:11

region? This is gonna be for the Arab.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:12

Who's he making dua for?

00:49:19 --> 00:49:21

With We made this a place for all

00:49:21 --> 00:49:23

people. He was the first, you could say,

00:49:23 --> 00:49:25

international messenger.

00:49:26 --> 00:49:29

He was the international messenger. He was thinking

00:49:29 --> 00:49:30

about the entire globe

00:49:31 --> 00:49:32

connected to this house.

00:49:32 --> 00:49:34

What an impossible idea.

00:49:34 --> 00:49:36

Just just think about that for a second.

00:49:36 --> 00:49:38

You're in the middle of the desert and

00:49:40 --> 00:49:42

far far away from you are actual superpowers

00:49:43 --> 00:49:45

and civilizations. The further away is the Indian

00:49:45 --> 00:49:48

civilization, the Chinese civilization, the Russian civilization,

00:49:49 --> 00:49:49

the European civilizations,

00:49:50 --> 00:49:51

the

00:49:51 --> 00:49:52

the, you know,

00:49:53 --> 00:49:55

the the the not not the Arab, the

00:49:55 --> 00:49:55

African nations.

00:49:56 --> 00:49:58

They have their mighty powers, and then you

00:49:58 --> 00:49:59

have this desert.

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

You're in the middle of a desert. And

00:50:02 --> 00:50:04

he's like, No, this will become the spiritual

00:50:04 --> 00:50:06

center and the spiritual capital of the planet

00:50:06 --> 00:50:08

earth. Allah has revealed that to me.

00:50:08 --> 00:50:10

And he's got just this one dua.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:12

And Rasul

00:50:12 --> 00:50:14

fulfills that dua. 23

00:50:14 --> 00:50:14

years

00:50:15 --> 00:50:16

of the sweat,

00:50:16 --> 00:50:17

the tears, the blood

00:50:18 --> 00:50:20

of the messenger of Allah, of the followers

00:50:23 --> 00:50:26

All of that results in one thing, the

00:50:26 --> 00:50:28

liberation of the house of Ibrahim so

00:50:28 --> 00:50:30

humanity can be connected alongside

00:50:31 --> 00:50:31

him,

00:50:33 --> 00:50:33

we

00:50:34 --> 00:50:35

send

00:50:36 --> 00:50:37

salawat

00:50:38 --> 00:50:41

upon Ibrahim alongside him, we send Ibrahim

00:50:43 --> 00:50:43

Muhammad

00:50:50 --> 00:50:53

This is what Allah gave us. This is

00:50:53 --> 00:50:55

what Allah wanted us to have,

00:50:55 --> 00:50:58

a concern for all of humanity, a message

00:50:58 --> 00:50:59

for all all of humanity.

00:51:00 --> 00:51:01

The the the Hajj

00:51:01 --> 00:51:04

is a reminder every year of how this

00:51:04 --> 00:51:06

message is for the entire earth.

00:51:06 --> 00:51:09

Go to Hajj, go to Umrah and

00:51:09 --> 00:51:12

what nationality will you find? Actually, the question

00:51:12 --> 00:51:15

is what nationality will you not find?

00:51:17 --> 00:51:19

You'll find every every color of skin,

00:51:20 --> 00:51:20

every language,

00:51:22 --> 00:51:23

all of them wearing the same ihram, all

00:51:23 --> 00:51:25

of them saying the same

00:51:28 --> 00:51:30

All of them reciting the same Quran.

00:51:31 --> 00:51:33

All of them sending the same salawat on

00:51:33 --> 00:51:33

the prophet

00:51:35 --> 00:51:37

It's incredible, isn't it? We

00:51:38 --> 00:51:41

take it for granted. Like, okay, we're Yeah,

00:51:41 --> 00:51:42

it's had. Yeah, I've seen the pictures of

00:51:42 --> 00:51:44

the ka'bah. You have like

00:51:44 --> 00:51:47

those embroidered carpet things on your walls, and

00:51:47 --> 00:51:48

you've got

00:51:48 --> 00:51:50

like Kaaba background on your phone or something.

00:51:51 --> 00:51:52

We just take it for granted.

00:51:53 --> 00:51:54

This represents

00:51:55 --> 00:51:56

something so

00:51:57 --> 00:51:59

the greatest miracle in history is actually what

00:51:59 --> 00:52:00

it represents.

00:52:01 --> 00:52:03

The Kaaba is the greatest miracle in history.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:06

How Allah proved that he will bring about

00:52:06 --> 00:52:06

justice

00:52:08 --> 00:52:08

in this world and his deen will win.

00:52:08 --> 00:52:11

In fact, it even proves that judgment day

00:52:11 --> 00:52:12

is real. This is the last thing I'll

00:52:12 --> 00:52:13

share with you.

00:52:13 --> 00:52:15

We go to the Kaaba.

00:52:15 --> 00:52:17

Allah showed that He will bring his He

00:52:17 --> 00:52:18

will make his deen victorious.

00:52:19 --> 00:52:21

And the proof that Allah will make his

00:52:21 --> 00:52:22

deen victorious is the ka'bah,

00:52:23 --> 00:52:26

the history around that region, that entire history.

00:52:27 --> 00:52:29

And through it, we know that Allah will

00:52:29 --> 00:52:32

finally bring His verdict for all of humanity

00:52:32 --> 00:52:32

too.

00:52:34 --> 00:52:35

May Allah

00:52:36 --> 00:52:37

allow us

00:52:38 --> 00:52:40

to keep the spirit of of Ibrahim

00:52:51 --> 00:52:52

slaughter an animal.

00:52:52 --> 00:52:54

You shouldn't just be thinking about,

00:52:54 --> 00:52:56

you know, Ibrahim alaihis salam and he was

00:52:56 --> 00:52:58

commanded to sacrifice his son.

00:52:58 --> 00:53:01

You should also be thinking about the sahaba

00:53:01 --> 00:53:03

who went all the way to Hudaybiyah and

00:53:03 --> 00:53:04

slaughtered their animals and didn't even get to

00:53:04 --> 00:53:05

see the Kaaba.

00:53:06 --> 00:53:08

And if they hadn't done that, we wouldn't

00:53:08 --> 00:53:10

ever get to see the Kaaba

00:53:11 --> 00:53:12

if they if they didn't do that.

00:53:13 --> 00:53:14

So we have to commemorate

00:53:15 --> 00:53:15

their

00:53:21 --> 00:53:23

definition behind. This is my last message to

00:53:23 --> 00:53:23

you guys.

00:53:24 --> 00:53:25

And that is that

00:53:26 --> 00:53:27

when when,

00:53:28 --> 00:53:31

Arwah came to meet the prophet and

00:53:32 --> 00:53:35

he saw all these different people of different

00:53:35 --> 00:53:37

tribes. He was confused. How are these people

00:53:37 --> 00:53:37

together?

00:53:38 --> 00:53:40

What could possibly bring these people together?

00:53:41 --> 00:53:43

And this was already an early indication,

00:53:44 --> 00:53:46

these people are together because they're coming for

00:53:46 --> 00:53:47

the house of Allah. Isn't it?

00:53:49 --> 00:53:50

This is what binds them together.

00:53:51 --> 00:53:53

That house represents their unity that is stronger

00:53:53 --> 00:53:56

than any tribe, any history, any language, any

00:53:56 --> 00:53:59

culture. It's more powerful than all of those

00:53:59 --> 00:53:59

things.

00:54:00 --> 00:54:02

It's like, you know,

00:54:03 --> 00:54:05

we're we're we're fused together even though we

00:54:05 --> 00:54:06

have different

00:54:06 --> 00:54:09

flavors in our cultures, languages, and skin tones,

00:54:09 --> 00:54:11

and heights, and all of that stuff,

00:54:11 --> 00:54:13

but there's something that binds us that is

00:54:13 --> 00:54:15

so much thicker than blood, And that's

00:54:17 --> 00:54:20

That's Muhammadu Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:54:21 --> 00:54:23

This is what could not understand.

00:54:24 --> 00:54:26

I don't understand. You don't think of nationality?

00:54:27 --> 00:54:28

You don't think of race and culture?

00:54:29 --> 00:54:31

You're just thinking you're bound to each other

00:54:31 --> 00:54:32

like this, with

00:54:33 --> 00:54:34

just

00:54:34 --> 00:54:36

And we're supposed to give this message to

00:54:36 --> 00:54:37

all of humanity.

00:54:38 --> 00:54:40

My last message to you is, how about

00:54:40 --> 00:54:42

we start by giving that message to ourselves?

00:54:43 --> 00:54:44

How about we begin

00:54:45 --> 00:54:47

looking I look I start looking in myself.

00:54:47 --> 00:54:49

Do I carry biases,

00:54:49 --> 00:54:51

cultural biases, language biases,

00:54:52 --> 00:54:53

grudges

00:54:53 --> 00:54:54

against other ethnicities,

00:54:55 --> 00:54:55

other people,

00:54:56 --> 00:54:57

other nationalities.

00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

Doesn't matter if they're Muslim. I don't like

00:54:59 --> 00:55:00

them.

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

They're all this way. Those are all that

00:55:02 --> 00:55:04

way. Those are all that way. Isn't that

00:55:06 --> 00:55:08

Isn't that what that is?

00:55:09 --> 00:55:11

And if we, if the Muslims are suffering

00:55:11 --> 00:55:13

today, there could be many reasons but I

00:55:13 --> 00:55:14

would argue this is one of those big

00:55:14 --> 00:55:15

ones.

00:55:16 --> 00:55:18

We are not a united people, not in

00:55:18 --> 00:55:19

our hearts.

00:55:19 --> 00:55:21

And we keep saying our governments aren't united,

00:55:21 --> 00:55:24

our powers aren't united, our rich people are

00:55:24 --> 00:55:25

No. But we're not united.

00:55:26 --> 00:55:28

We're not united. We go to a Alhamdulillah,

00:55:28 --> 00:55:30

in America we're a diverse community. So when

00:55:30 --> 00:55:32

you're standing in salah, there's like 50 nations

00:55:32 --> 00:55:33

in one salah,

00:55:34 --> 00:55:35

right? 50 different countries.

00:55:36 --> 00:55:37

How many people are talking to people from

00:55:37 --> 00:55:39

outside of their culture and getting to know

00:55:41 --> 00:55:43

What do you find after the salah is

00:55:43 --> 00:55:43

done?

00:55:44 --> 00:55:45

All the

00:55:46 --> 00:55:49

Tunisi Amuls are by themselves, the Jazari Amuls

00:55:49 --> 00:55:51

are by themselves, the Musris are by themselves,

00:55:51 --> 00:55:53

the Bengalis are by themselves, the Afghan,

00:56:02 --> 00:56:03

Right?

00:56:06 --> 00:56:08

We don't reach out. We don't connect.

00:56:09 --> 00:56:11

We don't bind ourselves as an ummah.

00:56:11 --> 00:56:13

We don't do business with each other.

00:56:13 --> 00:56:14

We don't

00:56:14 --> 00:56:16

lend money to each other.

00:56:16 --> 00:56:18

We don't do marriages among each other. We

00:56:18 --> 00:56:19

don't go to each other's homes. You could

00:56:19 --> 00:56:21

go to the same masjid for 20 years,

00:56:21 --> 00:56:23

and you didn't go to anybody's house that

00:56:23 --> 00:56:24

you met at the masjid.

00:56:27 --> 00:56:29

And we're talking about 1 ummah.

00:56:30 --> 00:56:31

And what are we upset about? Oh, we

00:56:31 --> 00:56:33

they celebrated Eid on a different day, you

00:56:33 --> 00:56:35

celebrated Eid on a different day. Ad Ummah

00:56:35 --> 00:56:36

is so just united.

00:56:37 --> 00:56:39

I don't care if you celebrate Eid 8

00:56:39 --> 00:56:40

days apart.

00:56:41 --> 00:56:43

That's not what shows if you're united or

00:56:43 --> 00:56:44

not.

00:56:44 --> 00:56:47

It's the uhhuwa among yourselves is what shows

00:56:47 --> 00:56:49

that you're united or not. The sometimes went

00:56:49 --> 00:56:50

to a village and they were still fasting

00:56:50 --> 00:56:52

and they had already celebrated the That was

00:56:52 --> 00:56:53

not the proof of unity or disunity.

00:56:55 --> 00:56:57

That's how you prove unity and disunity.

00:56:58 --> 00:57:00

That's these are fluffy metrics we've come up

00:57:00 --> 00:57:02

with. Feel good for yourself. Yes, we all

00:57:02 --> 00:57:03

had edam the same day.

00:57:04 --> 00:57:05

Ah, the ummah's united.

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

Felt good.

00:57:08 --> 00:57:09

Now what?

00:57:11 --> 00:57:12

Like there was no higher objective

00:57:13 --> 00:57:14

than getting Eid on the same day.

00:57:17 --> 00:57:19

We have to practically make this happen now.

00:57:20 --> 00:57:21

We have to practically create

00:57:22 --> 00:57:23

among believers.

00:57:23 --> 00:57:25

This is what it was. The description in

00:57:25 --> 00:57:26

the Quran of that was

00:57:29 --> 00:57:32

believing men and believing women are all uliya,

00:57:32 --> 00:57:33

allies to each other.

00:57:34 --> 00:57:35

They are allies to each other. They are

00:57:35 --> 00:57:38

helpers of each other, protectors of each other,

00:57:38 --> 00:57:39

men and women.

00:57:40 --> 00:57:41

This is what it was supposed to be.

00:57:41 --> 00:57:43

If I have a family problem,

00:57:43 --> 00:57:45

I can come to you and you can

00:57:45 --> 00:57:48

help me with my family problem, not listen

00:57:48 --> 00:57:49

to my family problem and use it for

00:57:49 --> 00:57:51

fun conversation in your next gathering.

00:57:53 --> 00:57:54

Then you are not my wali.

00:57:55 --> 00:57:56

Right?

00:57:56 --> 00:57:58

Then you are just like eating my flesh

00:57:59 --> 00:58:01

behind my back, my dead flesh, my carcass.

00:58:01 --> 00:58:03

This is not a uliya.

00:58:04 --> 00:58:06

This surah is so powerful. The message in

00:58:06 --> 00:58:07

it is so powerful.

00:58:07 --> 00:58:10

The victory that Allah gave was these people

00:58:10 --> 00:58:11

that are

00:58:12 --> 00:58:13

at the end ayah.

00:58:13 --> 00:58:14

Right?

00:58:14 --> 00:58:16

And you see them in sajdah before Allah.

00:58:16 --> 00:58:18

May Allah make us ruhamah between us and

00:58:18 --> 00:58:20

truly unite this ummah for the

00:58:21 --> 00:58:22

powerful entity that it is.

00:58:23 --> 00:58:25

And may Allah never allow us to be

00:58:25 --> 00:58:28

to lose our conscious connection

00:58:28 --> 00:58:30

to the legacy that led us to this

00:58:30 --> 00:58:32

beautiful ritual of hajj. May Allah accept the

00:58:32 --> 00:58:34

hajj of all those who are going to

00:58:34 --> 00:58:36

go. May Allah protect them and bring them

00:58:36 --> 00:58:38

back safely to their families. And those that

00:58:38 --> 00:58:40

Allah will take, may Allah grant them forgiveness

00:58:41 --> 00:58:43

and give them give them, his Jannah without

00:58:43 --> 00:58:44

any hisab.

00:58:56 --> 00:58:57

And being able to learn that and share

00:58:57 --> 00:58:59

that with family and friends, and they need

00:58:59 --> 00:59:01

sponsorships, which is not very expensive. So if

00:59:01 --> 00:59:04

you can help sponsor students on Bayinah TV,

00:59:04 --> 00:59:06

please do so and visit our sponsorship page.

00:59:06 --> 00:59:07

I appreciate it so much and pray that

00:59:07 --> 00:59:09

Allah gives our mission success and we're able

00:59:09 --> 00:59:10

to share the meanings of the Quran and

00:59:10 --> 00:59:12

the beauty of it the world over.
