salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Quran Weekly. This is your brother Omar Suleiman the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a lot of people that tried to kill them a lot of enemies, many, you know, bedrooms that would attempt assassination on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But there was one man in particular who was very powerful, who was out to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he was the chief of the bento hanifa tribe, the battle hanifa tribe, familia mama gave the Prophet slicin the rudest response out of any other tribe that the prophets lie some approached with Islam, and their hatred towards benu Hashem and their tribalistic nature, would even obviously

00:01:04--> 00:01:19

caused them to follow. The greatest liar of all time was Salem, Al Qaeda, the false prophet who came from that tribe as well, you know, and the only reason why people believed in him was because he was from a different tribe than the tribe of Banu Hashim. And so they would say about mo Salamanca, that

00:01:21--> 00:01:58

Ben hanifa that the likes of Ben hanifa is better than Assad that better than the truthful person. Of course, that was their level of hatred. So So Mama, had been a thought was one of those men who came from that tribe. He was the chief of that tribe, who hated the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who ambushed a group of Sahaba one time and killed them and murdered them, and was someone who was out to kill the profits of mycelium now, so Mama, one day came from the area of video, Mama, and he was on his way to Mecca. And as he was with his group of people, as they were traveling through the outskirts of Medina, Mohammed Abu Muslim, it'll be a lot of time and one another and some of the

00:01:58--> 00:02:32

companions were able to successfully capture through nama and capture those that were with him. So they brought through mama had been a thought, who already again was guilty of murder and who was trying to kill the profits of the lice. And then they brought him to the message of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And the Prophet sly sort of did something very interesting. He said, tie through mama to one of the pillars of the mustard, and just leave him there. So they tie through mama to one of the pillars of the masjid and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to mama. And he said to for Mama, he said molokhia for mama are in one narration now they're in the castle, Mama, you

00:02:32--> 00:03:07

know, what do you have to say for yourself? Oh, for Mama, you know What's with you? Oh, mama, What's your deal? So for Mama, he responded with arrogance because he's a king. He's a chief. He said yeah, Mohammed in tuck to talk to them and he's even threatening the profits lies on him as he as he's tied to the pillar. He says if you kill me, then blood will already have been spilled. Meaning what if you kill me? Then my men will come and they will kill you or they will kill your people while in tactful attack for unshackle. And if you pardon, then you will pardon a grateful man while in tests alma mater if you're going to ask for any money and test Allah Allah if you're going to ask for any

00:03:07--> 00:03:43

type of wealth, then to apply you will be given it meaning what if you let me go I can take care of you if you kill me, then people will kill you or they will kill the Muslims. So the prophets I seldom left to mama to Mama was fed he was taken care of and to mama sat there and he watched the Muslims come five times a day and pray Salah, and the next day the prophets lysozyme comes and he asked him the same question. He says Maliki atheroma now they're in duck. What do you have to say for yourself oh from Allah. He says to him the same answer and tuck through the top to them and if you kill blood will already have been spilt. And if you pardon then you will pardon a grateful man

00:03:43--> 00:04:19

and if you ask for money, then you will be given it the profits will I sell them left him again second time. He's there for a second day in the masjid observing the Muslims praying, observing the prophets, Allah lice and him with his companions being fed and taken care of no one's spitting at him, no one cursing him. Then a third day comes. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says murloc as a man, what do you have to say for yourself? Oh, mama. And mama gives him the same answer. And then the prophets lie Selim does something interesting. Now here's the thing, if you were in the situation, the prophets lie Selim. You know, this is a man that you want to make an example out of

00:04:19--> 00:04:54

this is a man that if you kill him, then you're sending a message to the entire world to not mess with the Muslims who love the Lord Tada. No, I just just to kind of put you in the mindset of the Sahaba. As they were seeing this all over what I love. The aloha Nui says the poor companions were even talking amongst themselves. And they were saying to themselves, you know, what do we have to do with the blood of this man, we should let him go on, you know, with a really heavy ransom because he's so rich, that he could make all of us rich as well meaning this man alone had so much money that he could he could, you know, improve the situation he could improve the situation of any one of

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

the poor companions of the Prophet slicin. Um, so, the opinion of the poor companions was, you know what, let them go.

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

With a heavy ransom and that way you'll take care of many of the companions. Some of the you know the stronger companions and those companions that, you know had been engaged in battle. They said, you know what killed him and make an example out of him. The prophets license does not have that the prophets lie send them says Utley call from Allah let to mama go through mama is shocked and the Muslims are shocked. The prophets lysozyme did not kill him. He didn't hurt him. He didn't curse at him. He didn't take any money from him. He just said go away. So Mama was let go, he was untied from the pillar of the Muslim. And he went out to the boundaries of Medina were where, you know, where

00:05:39--> 00:06:16

the outskirts of Medina were. And he made Wilson so he took a bath. Then he came back to the message of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he said, a shadow Allah either had a law, or an a colossal law, I bear witness that there's only one God and that you are the Messenger of Allah. And he said, I didn't want to say this. While I was forced, I didn't want people to say that I only said it to get myself out of this situation. But somehow to love being in that situation and seeing the Muslims for all of that time. Just think about this, you know, people who are turned off from the masjid because of how we act in the masjid and things of that sort in the time, you know, if someone was to

00:06:16--> 00:06:50

sit in the masjid for three days and observe the Muslims in their natural habitat, if you will, right? How would they feel about Islam just by watching the Muslims in the message? How do Muslims feel about Islam by watching other Muslims in the masjid, right. But in the case of Ramana, he was observing the best generation of people. And it was enough data to him to want to become Muslim. So just by seeing the prophets lifetime in the companions, and the way that they came to the prayer, and the way that they love the loss of animals and the way that they cooperate with one another. That was enough for phenomena to say a shadow Allah Illallah Muhammadan rasul Allah. Here's the

00:06:50--> 00:07:33

thing, the story doesn't stop there. So nama was on his way to Mecca to make our own rock in the polytheistic way. Okay, so he was going to make Ramadan and the way that the people were used to making Amara and jelly times which was to worship the idols and so on, so forth. So now he tells the profit slice, he says, yada, so a lot O Messenger of Allah. He says, You were the most hated face in the world to me before this, and he said, Now you are the most beloved person in the world to me. And he says to the prophets, why Selim come to that even in Ramadan, I was on my way to aamra he says for hotel, the knee and erythema Do you give me permission to go and make ombre? Pamela look

00:07:33--> 00:08:14

this person who used to be so arrogant, now he's telling the prophets license them Do I have your permission to make our own law. And the prophets license told him of course and the prophet SAW law he was and I'm taught him the 10 via the bake Allahumma bake the baker luxury color color bake in Alhambra with near Mehta, Lucknow and work, Sheree, collect the beautiful words of tau hadith of monotheism that we say when we go for Umrah or Hajj so the prophets lie some taught him those words and the prophets lie some taught him the proper way to make Amara and so tsunami is officially the First Men to ever make or Amara from the from the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So

00:08:14--> 00:08:53

Humana enters into Mecca. And what is he saying? He's saying the baker lahoma bake he's chanting out the Toby have to hate the tonry of monotheism out loud and so the people naturally just they jumped in. Now keep in mind by the way, this is post heads up. The Muslims are settled in Medina. So this isn't the early days of Islam, but at the same time, you know, the Muslims were not around mech anymore. They'd already migrated to Medina and no one would dare to come and do ombre and tell me out loud. So as soon as the mama comes and he starts to chant out loud bake a llama beep people start to jump on him. People start to fight him abou Sofia and runs out and Abu Sufyan who's a chief

00:08:53--> 00:09:35

of curation he knows who phenomena is abusive Yan says otaku has amalickiah Mama, leave him alone. This is the king of your mama, what are you doing? right you don't want to hurt this man will be in trouble. But Subhana Allah, they you know, after they heard of Sophia and say that they left the mama few mama says to Quraysh he says I swear by Allah that I am not going to let any supplies from the rest of the Arab world come to you. He's a man of power. So he places or race under boycott, under economic boycott and Subhanallah Look how look what happens now. Corporations now talks to the ER they send a letter to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begging the Prophet sallallahu

00:09:35--> 00:10:00

alayhi wa sallam to talk to to mama so that through mama will lift the boycott that he's placed on the people of Mecca. Now keep in mind these are the same people that placed the Prophet slicin him and his family under boycott. Right and in those circumstances the Prophet slicin lost his wife Khadija will be alone and he lost a boat Island. He lost so many people in the process of that slice element he struggled on his thought was set up as the

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

His entire family. But these same people now are talking to the Prophet slicin. I'm sending letters to the Prophet Simon saying, Please talk to mama to lift that boycott. And they even said, you know, it's against the Treaty of her baby, because at that time, it was already the Treaty of her baby had already taken place, whatever you can do. And so it also was the lahardee, who has seldom,

00:10:22--> 00:10:58

you know, reached out to phenomena. And he asked them ama to lift that boycott. And so the people of Mecca would receive their supplies, once again. Now, there are many lessons we can take from this obviously, in regards to the method but also so Pamela, look how this one men falling in love with Islam, a man of power, falling in love with the Muslims and falling in love with the prophets liason with Islam, brought to the Muslims economic power, political power, right, all kinds of clouds. He understood what he had, and he understood what he was worth. And because he'd seen the beauty of Islam, he was willing to do anything for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and for the sake of the

00:10:58--> 00:11:36

messenger sallallahu Sallam and the message that he brought it his salatu salam, think about that, you know, that that the Muslims had that level of power that the Muslims had that level of there is that level of dignity, that level of honor, and it all goes back to the kindness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the vision of the Prophet slicin and the wisdom of the Prophet slice them in recognizing that perhaps if this person sees the beauty of Islam, then this person will also become a Muslim as a last anti says in the Quran. In fact, we love to hear accent for either ledee Bina kobina Adela, Tarun Khanna who will even mean that you know, respond to that which

00:11:36--> 00:12:13

is evil with that, which is better. And so you would find that the one that was once your enemy would become your close protective friends. And this is exactly what happened in the case of the mama even a third or the data and, and phenomena actually would be we said that he came from the tribe with venom hanifa he would be one of the people that fought alongside wobec it'll be a lot of time against them and Satan had that and against the people Bennett Beto hanifa. He was successful in calling some members of his tribe to Islam. But overall, this was a man that brought much power to the Muslims. And it shows us again, the power of the masjid, the power of Islam, the power of

00:12:13--> 00:12:44

kindness and the power of prophetic mercy. We asked the last panel attacked to send his peace and blessings upon His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family his companions and we asked Allah Subhana hotel to join us with them, and the highest level General of Philadelphia alum I mean, Zach Lowe Hayden was Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh this audio is brought to you by Muslim Central. please consider donating to help cover our running costs and future projects by visiting www dot Muslim central.com forward slash donate
