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

One

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

or

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

two Muslim

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

or you believe you Allah as you should be feared, and die not except in the state of Islam.

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

The people of Hades they narrate to us the Hadith,

00:00:24--> 00:00:31

which says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, during the early days, the early years in Mecca.

00:00:32--> 00:00:37

He was leaning against the wall of Canada.

00:00:38--> 00:00:54

And he was in cloaked in his a cloak, shrouded in his cloak. And while he was like that, one of us I have about it when he comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:55--> 00:01:15

And the Muslims at that time was the early years of Islam. And the persecution of the machete was intense. The torture was intense, the punishment was intense. The difficulties were intense, the hardships, the trials, the tribulations were intense,

00:01:16--> 00:01:36

difficult times, hard times, turbulent times. The hubbub comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yasser Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Christos Elena omashola, the Messenger of Allah, make dua for us, ask Allah help for us.

00:01:37--> 00:01:47

And let us know Allah Salalah while he was in the closest of all beings to Allah subhanho wa Taala his grant is answered.

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

He said

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

before you

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

there were many people who are persecuted in their Deen

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

they found the tribulations in the heat, they were tortured for their belief, their belief in a loss

00:02:07--> 00:02:17

to today extend that one of them would be brought and so will be placed in the middle of his head and he will be sewn in half alive.

00:02:19--> 00:02:32

And another a comb from metal would be taken to his flesh and his flesh would be called away from this moment. And these people would not complain, they will not turn away from them.

00:02:36--> 00:02:52

These times that you are facing is no different from the times that were faced by the people before you and worse, but they did not complete. They did not turn away from their Dean, what law he he said What was he like? The law has an

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

alarm will complete this affair

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

established had

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

the woman the traveler, or the traveler will travel frozen at

00:03:18--> 00:03:30

that time that was a difficult road full of highway men little troubles, the travel will travel to households, he will fear no one you will have no fear except from a law

00:03:31--> 00:03:37

and the natural fear that a person would be afraid from the wolf over his sheep

00:03:39--> 00:03:52

will lie. And this was the nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. People are facing trivial times difficult times, oppression, hardships.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

It seems very dark.

00:03:57--> 00:04:25

And yet he his role there was to create hope to give people hope. There is a future things will change. Because no matter how long the night is the dawn we'll have a break and the morning will come. But you have to wait. You have to be ready you have to prepare for that time and this was in backup.

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

And then

00:04:31--> 00:04:42

and while we are now in the beginning as we are entering into the new hegira year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrate to Medina

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

not for the sake

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

of anyone except to establish

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

the genome last panel What? What is the reason for establishing the Dean of a law to save people

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

From the fire to give people the hope in our law so that they can worship a lot and anticipate his reward.

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

So he might rate at the beginning.

00:05:12--> 00:05:17

from Mecca, everything is difficult. The situations are intense.

00:05:20--> 00:05:28

hardships are there the machinery Keane have surrounded the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is no way to exit.

00:05:30--> 00:05:37

Everyone they have made they have come up with such a such a plan such a tight knitted plan.

00:05:39--> 00:05:52

And tight knit plans are usually there's usually the devil's inspiration for this. And in fact, the devil Kate inspired them to this plan. It came in the form of a man as the people of Seattle explained.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

So they have taken one man from every tribe

00:05:58--> 00:06:15

to so that the blood of the process I send them would be spilt amongst the people, and so that his family has him and they will not will not be able to fight everyone so in the issue would be ended there.

00:06:16--> 00:06:29

And every one of those youth is waiting at the house or the proper size and then his sword is there, well sharpened, ready to kill the Prophet sallallahu sallam. In any material situation, there is no hope it's over.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

But the

00:06:32--> 00:06:55

person smile, because the creator of Hope is a massive animal. He's the one who controls and like he gives people the ability to see he can take away the ability to see even though the eyes are still function. So the prophet SAW Allah opens his door, leaves his door, but no one can see him.

00:06:56--> 00:07:05

And he takes and he sees those people in front of him waiting to kill him and he is there nobody can attack him. So he takes some sand

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

and places with overnights

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

as a sign of the power of a loss of Hannah was either

00:07:14--> 00:07:56

to show us that you need to do the work and Allah is the one who looks after because a lot of would have taken the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam from Mecca to Medina. Like he took him from Mecca and mercy than haraam. Elon Musk at Uppsala, he could have taken me could have sent gibreel. And we could have taken him with a flash of an eye or he could have sent go flying horse and Bora. And he could have taken the profits on the lights. And then But no, the oma has to learn that in despite the difficulties and the tribulations, the enemies or law seem to be gathering against you that your hope and dependence must be in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he leaves his house at the time of his

00:07:56--> 00:08:22

law, and with him as mature, as they are in the case, and they are trapped. And the machine has realized that they have been, they have been, they have been. They have been the Prophet has escaped them, they go searching for them, and they stand at the opening of the cave. And the Prophet is there and the puppeteer is there. And the machete in the opening of the case of Uber crustacea

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

Isla de la Ana, just one of them. If they look at their feet, or their sandals, you'll see us

00:08:33--> 00:08:47

how intense is it? These are the people are willing to get the the blood of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with the end of the Prophet is the end of Islam. But the prophet SAW, he smiles. He turns around

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

and he smiles His face is full of hope.

00:08:52--> 00:09:10

Yeah, Baba mamanuca with me along with Google Map. What do you think about two people a lot is their third? How can two people allies with them? With his aid with his support with his help with his victory? How can a

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

family of many name is Omar Navarro is the owner of the site.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

Don't worry.

00:09:23--> 00:09:30

This is the site this is the reality giving people hope, the message of hope the message of Islam.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

So the process Lawson and complete is

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

to mark the beginning of a new era.

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

And while they are in Medina

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

and again the motion can have seen that the Prophet has escaped them time and time again. They say we have to finish him off. They have we have to end the Muslims. So they gather their forces and they send their messages to the different tribes that Arabian tribes. We have

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

To finish this man, so a big army 10,000 stronghold army goes to Medina

00:10:07--> 00:10:13

to put an end to this heresy in their minds and in their eyes.

00:10:15--> 00:10:34

I like that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was giving a seeking to or consultation of his companions. And they come up with the idea, the strategy, the plot to dig a trench,

00:10:35--> 00:10:47

as mentioned by Sandman, Osiris, so they dig the trench to protect themselves from their army. And this returns, and again, a big difficulty

00:10:48--> 00:10:54

of the Muslims that are facing what seems to be annihilation.

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

And while they are doing this seeking to

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

get their

00:11:04--> 00:11:20

security, they come up against this big rock, which they need to take ready to move out, but they big massive rock very hard, nobody has the ability to move and so they call on the most strongest of men, the prophets.

00:11:22--> 00:11:34

So he comes, he fixes x, and then announcing a lot of work, but he strikes the rock, and when that is strike, a big

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

bolt of lightning appears, and the proper size

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

and the Muslim say,

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

and then it strikes once again.

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

Again about

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

piers, from this rock,

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

and the Muslim say,

00:11:56--> 00:12:07

and they say all masala, what is happening? What are you seeing, and he strikes a third time and the rock shatters. And the prophets Allah says and says,

00:12:09--> 00:12:19

when these lights were shining, I was shown an image, I could see the image of the Muslims at the gates of Persia.

00:12:20--> 00:12:27

And I could see the Muslims at the gates of Rome, the gates of Constantinople, which was the heartland of the Romans.

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

Meaning that you Muslims, while even though you are thinking that

00:12:34--> 00:12:44

you're facing this massive army, there is still hope. Not only is there hope, but you are going to achieve and you're going to reach the hypocrites they say now.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

This is all deceptions. This is all illusions, the hypocrites say.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

But the Muslims say

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

the hypocrites will say one of us feel so terrified to go to the toilet.

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

This is how intense it is. Yet Mohammed is promising us the gates of closure and the gates of Costantino.

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

But the Muslim he realized, and his hope is,

00:13:21--> 00:13:30

such as the message of Islam, the message of hope, bringing hope to people let people believe.

00:13:31--> 00:13:45

And to bring home the Muslim has to be part of society. He has to participate in society. He has to give the society and the character of the Prophet solimar it was set up

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

was like that, even with all when he was in Mecca, and Mecca.

00:13:53--> 00:14:40

And society at that time the Japanese society the free Islamic ignorant society they were worshipping idols, they were drinking alcohol parties, they were killing their daughters alive. They were committing Zina, the rich what eating the poor there was so much diseases in society. Yes, there are good traits as well the good noble traits like generosity and truthfulness and courage, but the society was engulfed in bad traits. Yet the prophet SAW Allah says even before he received the message, he was the activist society positive in society. So when he receives the message of ECOWAS, and he goes back shaking to his wife Khadija.

00:14:42--> 00:14:46

The first words that his wife system will law lane you Xia.

00:14:48--> 00:14:58

Allah will not allow not disgrace you Why? He said he said because you are generous to the guest.

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

You are the one who helps those who are in need those who have nothing. You are the one who helps people, you carry their stuff, those who are unable to carry those who need help with their vehicles you help them.

00:15:18--> 00:15:33

Whenever there is need an emergency you are there. This was the character of the prophet SAW Selim was participate in given, he was not isolated in his house. He was not so when Islam came,

00:15:35--> 00:15:45

they knew who the Prophet Swaziland was. He was part of them, he was there slide. He was the one who was helping already society participating

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

in society. And this is the message that we see with them. And we see repeated with the prophets as well before

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

use of Allah Islam.

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

And the whole story of use of is about hope.

00:16:06--> 00:16:17

And about and then seeing how things change, even though things seem grim. And this young child is put in the world. But there is a hope in this system. When you supply a seller comes out of the prison.

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

And the king brings him

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

after seeing the dream.

00:16:24--> 00:16:41

And he knows that there is a big task ahead because the whole finance of the country is at stake. With the seven good years, followed by seven hard years what to do the killing feels difficult use the violin

00:16:43--> 00:16:54

did not say that I will just isolate myself with my ibadah my worship my personal worship or isolate myself, when

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

just doing dow just telling people there was a wall there's a task at hand

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

which needed leadership.

00:17:06--> 00:17:13

He didn't say the king is a Catholic King and I'm not gonna participate helping him. He can go to hell, I don't care.

00:17:14--> 00:17:27

There was a role as an activity to hear so immediately he knows the power of his role as one who worship a lot is to help is to create hope is to provide instead Jiminy Allah has

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

made me in charge. For me in charge of these charges I will take care of

00:17:34--> 00:17:39

I have experience in the field when I have knowledge, and I'm

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

participating in society. He saw that as his essential task. Most

00:17:51--> 00:17:56

of you just been running away from Pharaoh who are wanting to kill him.

00:17:58--> 00:18:10

Not because he purposely killed the man Some people think that was a purpose to kill them and the purpose to kill them. All that Wooster did was that he prevented someone from from oppressing the other.

00:18:12--> 00:18:27

Two men, one of the Egyptians, and one of the Israelites, the Egyptian was persecuting the Israelites. So the Israelites asked for help. Moosa tried to push away the the Egyptian he didn't push to punch him in the chest,

00:18:28--> 00:18:41

but also was a tough man. And that punch was all they needed. And that man, that man died from the punch. Moosa didn't want to kill the man, but he wanted to help remove the oppression.

00:18:42--> 00:18:52

But Pharaoh wasn't going to see that. So move on, though he's running away from being persecuted, he goes to Midian. He sees a group of people

00:18:54--> 00:19:03

around the world, each one looking after their own cattle. And there's two women, they're standing by themselves on a boat, they need the help, they need the support.

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

nobody's looking after them. So Moosa because his duty is even before profitable, easy is that his duty is to help in society to participate in society, those who are in need, need to help.

00:19:20--> 00:19:28

And even those who are not in need need help as well. This is the duty of this man's duty of Muslims, should you really know the meaning of life.

00:19:29--> 00:19:39

So he goes to those women and he takes their flock and he wants them to give them the water, because that is his duty, and he was looking for him.

00:19:41--> 00:19:49

And the examples are many for our society, and through history and through the stories of how he has stopped for a while you start

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

Salam ala rasulillah

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

it was a lot of work and I work for quite a

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

while

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

Nova coma you played

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

Lima.

00:20:28--> 00:20:42

And this was the message that the Muslims understood was the Muslim of participation, participating in society, helping the needy, helping those who are in need participating in all walks of society.

00:20:44--> 00:20:51

So that they can give things they give back before they take because it's about giving. It's not about taking.

00:20:52--> 00:21:00

It's about how much you can offer. Islam is that message of hope, that message of participation

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

even the likes of the great qualified

00:21:05--> 00:21:12

Abubakar of the allies, having inherited the leadership of the Islamic Ummah

00:21:15--> 00:21:19

and, and having the authority of the Muslims,

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

the top man

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

in the world,

00:21:26--> 00:21:34

he didn't just sit down and say that sits under Khalifa, I'm in charge. Everybody can listen to me, I can tell people what to do.

00:21:36--> 00:21:39

He said that this is a position of responsibility.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

And so when Omar observed him,

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

observed abubaker, after fudger of prayer every day, leaving his house and going to a house on the outskirts of Medina

00:21:57--> 00:22:10

and entering into a house and stay there for some time. I'm gonna say what's happening here? Does he have another family? Do another wife do something you don't know? what's what's happening? He was observing

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

while he was doing this.

00:22:14--> 00:22:45

So after Rebecca leaves, armor goes to the house to see what's the story, so he knocks on the door. And when the door is open, there is an old woman there, a blind of woman. And he said, Who is that man, Who's that man has just left your house with a man that comes to you every day. She said, I don't really know who he is. But he comes every day and he helps with the house. He cleans the house. He needs the dose. He milks

00:22:46--> 00:22:52

the goat. And he helps us generally we don't know who is male more than he helps us every day.

00:22:55--> 00:23:00

We realize the intensity of this reality he cries and he says after

00:23:03--> 00:23:13

you will have truly lifted the standards of backup because anyone who comes after you will find it difficult to meet up the halifa the leader

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

and Omar try to emulate this.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

And that's why in our monitoring his

00:23:22--> 00:23:27

he tried to be of service to the people trying to help people.

00:23:28--> 00:23:37

So when he goes in his nightly walks to look and see what's happening, what's the state of the Muslims?

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

He hears a woman crying and her children crying because they don't have any food. And the woman

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

is saying

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

has to be a lot of honey, may Allah be enough for us.

00:23:54--> 00:23:54

In this state.

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

The state has not looked after us

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

and doesn't know about this woman doesn't know about her state.

00:24:05--> 00:24:38

Because there is no food there is no provisions. So I haven't seen that. And the woman has bought a pot boiling with just stones inside just as children are waiting, anticipating that there is some food so maybe they will just give up and cry and go to sleep. So having realized this, he goes and he takes his seven and they go to the house of the Muslims. And they carry some some of the provisions from there some flour and oil and so on and they take it back and Omar carries the sack on his back

00:24:39--> 00:24:50

to that woman and the slave or the server says Oh, let me carry it instead of you. He said no. You will not carry my sins on my photos.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

And he takes it because he understood that this is the role of the leader. If you want to leave

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

You have to serve.

00:25:02--> 00:25:11

And in our mission as Muslims, is this mission of participating, helping of giving, of creating hope.

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

in society,

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

there's no point blaming others

00:25:18--> 00:25:37

have more situation of the Muslims. There's no point of blaming others. There's no point of thinking about conspiracies and theories and so on. You want your true role as a Muslim, you have to give, you have to help you have to participate.

00:25:38--> 00:26:03

Whether it's on a family level, whether it's on the level of schools, whether it's a level of universities, whether it is participating in helping others charities, your neighbors, on a higher level, councils, elections, you have a role to participate. And you have to give, you have to help you have to alleviate

00:26:04--> 00:26:14

and this is the role. And if we don't realize this role, and if we don't move up to the role, we will remain isolated from society.

00:26:15--> 00:26:23

You already seen how the prophets and the people after them, they were part of society, they will participate in and they were given.

00:26:24--> 00:26:38

And they were saying you owe me my tribe, my people, they cared for the people. And so the game and they helped and it is with this care of this will help our last panel to either change
