salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Put on weekly This is your brother almost a man

00:00:31--> 00:01:12

who narrates inauthentic narration by the man will hack him that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam one time hungriest sword on the branch of the tree, and he sat in a che to take a nap it his salatu salam, and as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting in the shade of that tree, a man by the name of Vova evenin Harris came and he grabbed the sword. And he stood on top of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with the sword, and he said, Yeah, Mohammed milennium neurochem in ni, O Mohammed, who will stop me from killing you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked up at him and the prophets license that Allah Subhana Allah with power in his voice, Allah His salatu

00:01:12--> 00:01:53

salam, and with full conviction and certainty, not showing any fear whatsoever. He said, Allah and Lola, he started to shake. And he was so afraid by how the prophets lie. Selim said Allah, that he actually dropped the sword. And the prophet SAW Elias and picked up the sword and now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in a position to kill Vollrath, and this was in the madonie phase. So this was in in Medina, so no one would have said anything. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, many of them narrow come in near and who will stop me from killing you now. So volta said, la had to ask that he said, no one but he said, Be gentle in your taking of revenge, meaning

00:01:53--> 00:02:31

what? You know, take take the higher road. Don't kill me as I tried to kill you. So he's pleading with the prophets lie, some couldn't hide assets, you know, be the best of those that take revenge. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he responded to him. And he said, Do you bear witness that a loss of Hannah Horta as the only God worthy of worship, and then I am his messenger? And the Holder said, No, but I will not fight against you anymore. Normally, normally, you know, be normalized support anyone who does try to fight you or fight against the Muslims, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then let him go, loaded. As soon as the Prophet slicin let him go, he

00:02:31--> 00:03:03

became a Muslim. So he didn't want to take Shahada while he was under pressure. He didn't want to do it under force, he wanted to actually do it sincerely. So he said that la Mohammed little sort of law, and he went back to his people. And he said that I have just come back from the best of luck creation. Now, there are many lessons from this and I want you really, really to pay attention because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was protected many times. This is just one of those incidents in the heads of law. Right, the prophet Tyson was with Abu Bakr, so the law, the law of Thailand or in the cave, as we all know, and the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim says, you know, as a

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

bobeck, it'll be a lot of time and who becomes worried? What do you say have to an Allah subhana wa tada is the third of them, meaning what the prophets lysozyme had no fear of being killed in that situation, because he knew that Allah was with him. Also, in the case of Vietnam, we thought about the law of Thailand who was sleeping in the bed of the Prophet slice of them, knowing again, that a loss of Hannah Montana was with him and was with the messenger subtle, I sent him a flock of nomadic while they allowed Thailand who at that time trying to kill the Prophet slicin finds the prophets I send them in the migration in the huddle. And as he's writing towards him, his horse keeps on

00:03:37--> 00:04:17

falling down, and throwing him off of it, until he comes to the realization that this man has divine protection. There are many, many, many different narrations, many, many different ahadeeth many different stories from the subtle, however, how does this you know how do we take benefit from this lesson other than obviously, understanding that the prophets lysozyme was protected by Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says in Nepal and yeah, you have a school, O Messenger of Allah bellisima Anzhi that you recommend rhombic deliver what was revealed to you from your Lord, for inlanta file if you don't do so, for my beloved Teresa, then you have failed in delivering the message then a loss something

00:04:17--> 00:04:53

very, very interesting. A law says while La Jolla similkameen in us and a loss of parenthood's ad it will protect you from people and support a lot. You know, when you look at this what Allah has done in this ayah is he conducted the Tao of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam directly to the protection that comes from a loss of parenthood's ad and this was an advice that one of my teachers gave me after 911 you know, I was I was telling him, you know, we can't do certain things in the most you know, in the West, we're afraid people are afraid to come to the masjid. We're afraid to do that. Well, we're afraid of islamophobes yada, yada yada. He said, Listen, as long as you are active in

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

delivering the message of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, while La Jolla will come in and ask Allah is the one that's going to protect

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

To protect your family, from the people a lot is the one that connected that word directly to protection. How many times have you heard people say in the Muslim world and in the West, perhaps, you know, don't go to the masjid because we don't want you to get noticed too much. I don't want you to get too involved. I don't want you to grow a beard. I don't want you to wear hijab I'm afraid of you being you know, attacked here. I'm afraid of people saying this about you. I'm afraid of you being confronted, Oh, don't do that event over there. Don't do that MSA event don't put the data table out there. You know, don't don't get involved with with these with these charity organizations

00:05:31--> 00:06:10

that are under the name of or the banner of Islam. All of this paranoia that comes within us that is actually directly attributed to a loss or that is you know, a direct consequence of that is a loss of penalties for lifting his protection from this from us. When we are active in working for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and in calling to the way of Allah subhanaw taala and proudly praying in public calling people to a last panel to either praying in the airport, praying in our on our campuses, putting our data tables out there, you know, serving the homeless, serving the poor, doing you know what we are supposed to do proudly under the banner of Islam, we are under the protection

00:06:10--> 00:06:42

of Allah subhana wa tada and we should never feel like we would be safer if we stopped doing things for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it's the opposite in the Quran, and in the center. So we asked the last panel in town to make us amongst those that are confident in his protection We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us amongst those that call to his way without forgetting themselves and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst those that will attain the highest level of Jonathan for those in the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his family and his companions Allah I mean, does that come along with Hayden was sent me
