In so many ways to be tested with power is so much more difficult than to be tested with persecution, just like being tested with wealth is so much harder than being tested with poverty. Why? Because you have access, you have the ability to displease Allah, to take advantage of the one in front of you, who seems to be weaker and in a position of powerlessness. When you look at the Prophet sallallahu wasallam everything that he embodies, of the perfection of character shines brightest on the day that he returned to Mecca. Because no person was hurt more than the Prophet slicin and by the people of Mecca, the entire persecution and harassment and killing all of it took
place in targeting the Prophet slicin. him and his family suffered. He suffered a lot he was silom yet when he comes back to Mecca, in fact to Mecca, though no one would have blamed him had he taken revenge, he sought something so much greater than revenge. He sought the hearts and minds of those people that were in Mecca and everyone that would follow that would read about the incident fantastic.
So we're past her they be at the treaty has been made and the profit slice some has honored that treaty. The Muslims have honored that treaty and Islam has spread throughout the world because of the ability to do Dawa in a time of peace. Now Quraysh they made the mistake of breaking the Treaty of her day BIA by facilitating an attack on Gaza, which was an ally tribe to the Muslims, and by doing so they violated the treaty. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly had received the news of this violation of the treaty before the people of Medina would find out I sold the lots out on her. She says that three days before the news even came back to us in El Medina, that the
people of Mecca had violated the treaty. The prophets lysozyme started to make these preparations for a large army that would march somewhere and even apobec it all the law Tada. And when he came to visit the Prophet slice of them, he was confused by the prophets license preparations. Abu Sufyan was coming from Mecca as soon as he knew about the violation from his side. And he wanted to come to Medina knowing that this was a dumb move for the people of Mecca to try to salvage the treaty before it was too late, because he knew that the Muslims had now grown to a place where the Meccans would not be able to withstand the force of the size of the army of the profit slice alum. Though the
profit slice some had been honoring that treaty all along. So Abu Sufyan, he gets to Medina to try to talk the profit slice on them into staying within the terms and the profit slice of them has already at that point begun to amass the army that will proceed towards Mecca. And he ignores Abu Sufyan and he makes his way to Mecca with 10,000 soldiers on the 10th day of Ramadan. So we are now in Ramadan. And this is the eighth year and they are making their way towards Mecca under the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in this massive show, right a force that exists at this point, and also less Isom is not going towards Mecca, and haraam. Rather, the prophet slice them at this point is
assuming the full armor of battle, and the profit slice of them has his sword. He has his bow and his arrows on the lahari some and he has a shield and he embarks on this journey with his camera it his thought was set up and the people following him towards Mecca as the treaty has now been violated from Mecca. Therefore, there is no reason for the profit slice. I'm at this point to stay within this treaty. Now I was Sufyan in justice would be the first person killed, right for everything that he did against the profit slice that I'm all the times that he killed Muslims all the times he organized against the Prophet slice on them, but will soon Allah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam is not looking to make an example out of Abu Sufyan, rather the Prophet slicin him is looking to demonstrate the example of Islam. And so even as many of the companions are rightfully angered, and they're looking forward to that moment where they can come back to Mecca and take revenge, the Prophet slicin constantly cools the temperature of his army, and lets them know that this is going to be a date of Rama. This is going to be a date of mercy, not a day of slaughter, that this is going to be a day of reconciliation, not revenge, we're going to demonstrate the high ideals of Islam. And just as we fought back in bedded for the sake of Allah, we will restrain ourselves on
this day for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the Prophet slicin
Not only is not going to punish Abu Sufyan, but rather an adversity alongside and who says to the Prophet sallallahu. It was and I'm look published soufiane is a proud man. So as you come back into Mecca, if you could find a way to still give him some level of honor and respect, then do so because he's looking to win hearts sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, of course, to some of the Sahaba belaz of the worlds that are models of the world, may Allah be pleased with them all. They just wanted to take them out. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is looking for a way to grow this community. So he announces a license when he enters into Mecca, Mandela data iv sofiane, for Who am
and whoever enters into the house of Abu Sufyan is safe. And he continues to march forward some of the law who it he was telling them it is the 17th day of Ramadan, which is by the way, the same day as better. And the Prophet slicin is marching forth. And Abu Sufyan is standing next to it I bustle the Allahu taala. And when he's looking at this army, and Abu Sufyan is saying syllabus, your nephew has amassed mold can alima he's amassed an incredible army at this point, no one's going to be able to stand up against him at this point. I mean, this is an incredible army. And I bassel Viola Han who says yeah, but Sophia and inanda wala have a Sophia is Prophethood This is not a worldly
demonstration. This is Prophethood This is Allah subhanho wa Taala blessing His Messenger sallallahu Sallam with what he promised him isn't a time that you recognize him as a sort of law, that you recognize that he is indeed the Messenger of Allah. Next they pitch the tent for the Prophet slice alum on the outskirts of Mecca. And also last I saw them prayed much and did much such that out of sugar out of frustration of gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the moment that was ahead of him, and then the Prophet slicin proceeds into Mecca, and ahead of him is about obey the law or the law of salah and who who is carrying the main flag. On one side you have ideal the law of China and
on another side you have Zubaydah the low tide, and also commanding a portion of the Muslim army at this point is how to delete all the data at home. And also let's say some enters into Mecca, and the army descends upon Mecca from all directions. By all means, this is going to be payback and revenge, right? Remember how the Meccans acted in a hood with the Muslims after bad that even though they were the ones that drove them out, so by all means, it seems to be that way. But also los isonem enters in that day, and his nose was almost touching the back of his camel meaning he entered in with humility, not writing proudly, but rather in humility to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what was
the prophets lie some saying the whole time was he chanting some slogans of ignorance? No, the Sahaba said, but also la seisen was reading sort of Fattah he was reading Quran the whole time. So he had his nose close to the camel's back. And he was reading sort of prophetic reading the Quran and thanking Allah subhanaw taala and praising Allah subhanaw taala for that moment, and also last isin proceeds straight to the Kava and the people of Mecca. Now, I mean, they can't do anything, right, they have to watch this and they just have to wish for the best. So they're watching the Prophet slice of them do what he's going to do. And the Sahaba are not fully privy to what the
prophet slice them is going to do. So the solar system goes straight to the cap. That home that he wants, was a part of rebuilding that was built by his father Ibrahim, it is saddam and it's made it his Salaam and where he wants put the Blackstone to pull all of Mecca together. And the Prophet slicin them goes around the Kaaba and with his bow the Prophet sallallahu he was said I'm starts to pull down the idols that are erected around the cab over 300 of them, erected around the Kaaba, and the profit slice on recites what quarter. And how cool was that hackle bottle in el belty la Canas a hookah and say the truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Verily falsehood is bound to vanish
and he says that sort of Allah How do you sell him as he's pulling down the idols, then the prophets lie some dust off around the camera the way that he used to do that also lost a son goes to the door for the Kava, and he calls earthman even tell her what the Allahu taala and who and he takes the keys of the caribou. earthman was a recent convert at this point. He takes the keys of the cabin from him, he opens the door of the Kaaba. And then he hands it back to Earth man even told her and he says take it over any thought, for you have the right to this until the day of judgment. And these keys will not be taken from you except by a wall except by an unjust tyrant. So this was a
sign that the prophets lie. So again, is reconciling and he's acknowledging these places, and he leaves the keys with this particular tribe, that until today, it is only from Ben Plata, that the keys of the Kava can remain in accordance with the Hadeeth of the press.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet slice alum as it goes through Benno shaybah, which is the larger tribe that the keys go through there. He then proceeds into the cabasse Allah Allah who it was Solomon who enters the Cabo with him. The prophets I seldom, though he is reconciling hearts, he's not ditching his companions, those that struggled and strove, who enters with him below the law.
And the prophets lie some goes into the Kava, and he starts to remove the idols and he looks and he sees the images of the prophets and the false gods that are on the walls of the cabin. The prophets lie some orders that they'd be wiped over, and then the profit slice and I'm continues to prostrate and pray out of thankfulness in the Kappa inside the Kava sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the people of Mecca are completely silent watching the scene unfold, what's he going to do next? He walks out sallallahu wasallam on the steps of the Kava, and he looks out to the scene. And he says La ilaha illa Allah hula hula Sheree Keller sada kawada one Asada, what hasn't been as there is no God but
Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no god but him sadaqa he fulfilled his promise. nosler abda he aided His servants, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, well has them Zabaleta, and he did away with the Confederates himself subhana wa Tada. So the prophets lie some is not acknowledging or not attributing the victory to himself, but rather he is attributing the victory to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then the Prophet slicin calls out to production he says, Yeah, Marshall Quraysh Oh, people have courage. Verily, Allah subhanaw taala has abolished all of the pride and conceitedness that used to take in jelly and the days of ignorance in your tribes and in your
ancestors. And all of the disputes between tribes, I am crushing them under my foot right now. So parallel remember when the Capitol was constructed, the profit slice on brought the people together? Now he's doing the same thing he says, all of the tribal warfare and all of the silliness, it's gone. Now I'm putting it under my foot, and he sets on a licen and because all of you are from Adam, and Adam is from to rob Adam is from dirt and then the profit slice on recited the verse yet humaneness inner Halak nachum indicating what answer whether or not I'm sure Ruben wapa either Lita Allah for inner chromosome and ally, attack typo in the law and even heavier the verse inserted Hojo
ratar, O mankind verily we have created you for male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may get to know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is the one who is most pious Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all knowing, ever acquainted. The prophets lie Selim would then put bilad or the Allahu taala and who to stand on the Kava, to really solidify what he is saying sallallahu wasallam, to call the man from the cab, and then the prophets lie some and of course people objected, but it doesn't matter some of them object, this is the new system the new way, that equality is granted, and that the basis of superiority is piety in
the sight of Allah subhanaw taala and none deserved more to stand on the cabinet and call Allah what Allah commanded. Then below the allow Tyler and who, who was once under the feet of those pagans so the prophets lie some establishes that for believable the alongside and one demonstrates what he is saying with this verse, then the Prophet slicin I'm still on the steps of the Kava and Quraysh humbled they can't do anything.
The prophets lie some calls out to them he says yeah, Mashallah Pradesh. Oh Quraysh matter owner and the ferried on vehicle, what do you think I'm going to do to you? What should I do with you? I mean, what would you do if you were in my situation, what should be done to you? And they said, Hydra, a Hoon Karim webinar can Karim, they said, you will do good. You are a noble brother and the son of a noble brother. So they're hoping that the profit slice of them you know, when he punishes them, when he punishes them, he will not punish them too severely and you notice that the profit slice I'm always responds with the Koran. He said rather I will say to you, what my brother use of how to his
Salah, said to his brothers, called Allah to three Valley company on his teaching them called ants Palawan action with every incident that's taking place. There is no blame upon you today. May Allah Subhana Allah forgive you a lot of Himachal I mean, and indeed He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy is Hubble fentanyl total, though for you are free Subhanallah no punishment on the people of Mecca. And you can imagine what this did to the hearts of the people of Mecca. How many people converted out of seeing the superior ethics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if there was any doubt in their hearts that he was the Messenger of Allah. It was all solved in that moment of
humility and mercy from
allowed he was selling, but then there's something else where's he gonna stay? What's gonna happen next? He's conquered Mecca. He has done away with the idol sallallahu sallam, he told the people they can go free. The prophets lie some would remain in Mecca for about 19 days. And at this point, his home has been conquered the home that he used to stay with Khadija will be allowed to Atlanta it was taken when he was run out of Mecca. I read all the law of town and who he wants them to take the home that they grew up in meaning upon himself. So he says to the profit slice on him, aren't you going to go back to your own home yet? Also the law the profits license that did appeal your older
brother did he leave any inheritance for us an appeal has sold all of his property. So basically, the profit side sometimes options are to stay somewhere else or to retake one of the homes that they were driven out of and the profit slice of them does not want to disrupt what he is establishing in the moment. So they set to the profit slice. I'm Jada Silla. aina tunsil where are you going to stay? Where are you going to stay? He said pitch me attempt and her June. And her June is significance for many reasons. One, it was where Porsche initially signed the treaty to boycott Banu Hashim. And through that boycott came the deaths of Abu Talib. And Khadija or the Allahu Tana. To
this is where the jungle the Allahu anhu was buried. And so the Prophet slicin wanted to be near the grave of the visual of the Allah, who never got to witness the glory of Medina, nor the glory of the opening of Makkah. And three, this is very important. It indicates that the profit slice is still a traveler, and so we don't know where he's going to stay at this point.
In these days, as we exert ourselves with all sorts of good deeds that our Prophet sallallahu wasallam taught us, we invite you to spend in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we may all further ourselves along this journey and draw closer to Him.
