That the Prophet
Mohammed Ali Salatu was Salam was sent out to all mankind.
Yeah yohannes in Nero su la comme Jamia? Oh, you people are yohannes I am the messenger of God being sent to you all. So the Prophet Mohammed Ali said to Sam was sent to all mankind, Arabs and non Arabs.
And let me give you an idea as to what type of people the Prophet Muhammad had to deal with.
So I can connect it with the topic that we're going to be talking about today.
The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to people who used to worship stones, rocks, animals, Sun, Moon trees.
It's been rated by a man known as avasarala. Authority.
Authority, he said,
we were traveling.
And we used to take our gods with us. Listen to this, we were traveling, and we used to take our gods with us, and the gods would made of rocks, you know, idols.
And then, we were cooking our food in this big pot. And, and we were looking for a rock because we needed to put this pot into and we had to put like a, you know, some rocks as a base, and then put the pot on top of a rock. So we needed we were missing one rock, and we were looking for some rocks, we could not find a good one. So he says, that we brought our gods
that they were carrying with them. So we brought our God and we put it under the pot to hold the part where they were cooking their food.
They cook their food, they ate their food. And then when they were done, you know they left
on the way one of them says, Are you her nurse? La Casa de la buena. Oh, you people, we have forgotten our God.
We have forgotten our God, let's go back and look for it.
They went back looking for their god meaning that rock that they took with them, they were looking for some rock that God they could not find
that particular rock that they had put in under the pot. So they they they looked for some other rocks, they've picked one they they poured some milk in it, they cleaned it and they said okay, this is our new God.
This is the type of people that the Prophet was sent to this kind of people people who you know this is what it's called the day of ignorance.
The Prophet had to deal with this type of mentality people worshipping rocks, people worshipping stones, people worshipping galaxies, people worshipping stars people worshipping sun and the moon and trees and monkeys and donkeys and drink and an worshipping de and drinking the urine of monkeys and donkeys
yet his time was on the move
instead was on the move despite all of the oppression that the campaign is we're going to do is that was on the move is there was growing
the the Sahaba the companions they went through a lot of oppression they went through a lot of a lot of hardship he see his time came to us so easy how many new Muslims or how many revert Muslims do we have in the house?
Mashallah, they're quite few. Did anybody you know once he embraced Islam anybody put a I'm talking to you okay, you know, did anybody put a gun says you know revert go back to whatever you were before? Oh, we can went to slaughter you we go into heat you were going? Did anybody do that to you? You know, there's a man by the name of a kebab. kebab is a companion. So they're sitting with some companions, and with Omar talking about you know, who was really punished, the more who was tortured the more or the most be that says me, of course, be that said me. You know, they used to put in all rocks on on on my chest, and they were torturing me to leave my religion and I did not leave my
religion. And sebab says, No, it is not you. And he showed him his back. And and when Omar saw the back of a kebab No,
Hubbard had holes in his back.
They used to bring charcoal my brothers and sisters, they used to bring hot charcoal and they would put his back on the back of the hot chocolate, they would press his back against it. So just he would you know, leave his religion yet he did not leave his religion.
People they suffered to c'est la ilaha illa. And to stay with that in a halal LA.
was torturing Somalia and her husband and her and her son. Omar was also torturing, you know, before it's them, he used to torture his maid. They went to love of torture my brothers and sisters.
They went to a lot of suffering, just to keep their faith just to hold on their faith.
Yes, so Pamela, once they enter into the fold, they miss them, they would understand their role and they would understand that obligation.
They understood their mission as soon as they say that anybody who comes in say that they understood right away their commitment.
It is reported listen to this amazing story.
The Prophet said the man

There were no cars, there were no No, no, no, no motorcycles, they were it was only they were either on foot or using camels. This guy walked and rode for 700 kilometers, just so that he can convey the message to this little town.
It's called where do you know, man, the value of man.
yet nobody believed in him.
And then he made the U turn. And he went back to Medina.
The leader of that town wedding man.
He thought to himself, he says, You know what? I'm going to travel to Medina myself to hear it from Mohammed himself. I want to talk to Mohammed maybe he is right.

Oh, came and knocked at us and and we're the neighbor of your mosque. Nobody has ever come to tell us about Islam. Yesterday, my father died. I will hold you responsible for people Allah for not coming and
telling us about Islam.
We live in the mystery. We stay in the mission. Yes. Our neighbors also, you know, we never thought of going around and telling people about this amazing, beautiful religion. And that hamdulillah This is the purpose of the peace conference, not only to bring people together but to go out to the mission. We live in the West, there are certain rules that we have to abide by. Yes. But also people they have to know that you know, what is Islam? Islam is not what you hear from the TV. It
is time and most times, you know, extremism and whatnot. That is not Islam. We need to tell them what Islam is all about. Do you know my brothers and sisters, that the majority of the mosques in North America, Canada and the US, the majority of the mosques, they used to be churches.
The majority of the mosques in North America, they used to be churches, churches are going out of business. A
lot of churches are going out of business and they turn into Masjid. Have you ever seen a Masjid shut down?
Anybody? a mosque shut down. Because we know what nobody comes out with a muscle. You know, we're running out of it. We just know we shut it down. Have you ever heard that?
What happens when you build a machine? We buy some building and we call it the mission. Right? And then six months later, a year later? What do we do?
Tell me. What do we do?
raise funds. Why?
Why do we need to raise funds.
We need to expand? We need to expand we don't close down we expand Subhan Allah, you know this this guy, he saw dream. He built the masjid. He built the mosque and he put some rules. He says he says I don't want nobody to help me build this mosque.
So he wants to build the mosque with his own wealth with his own money.
So he saw dream. He saw dream that this monster is built because he put
The name of the mosque, you know, he put his name, he put a big sign his name as this is the name. This is the name, you know, the machine after my name. And then he saw in his dream, an angel coming down, taking that sign out and putting another sign of some woman, you know the name of a woman.
The guy wakes up in the morning, hey, go check. You know what name is there? They came back and they said no exterior name. He says no, no, I saw that the name has been changed. They came in he told him no, no, no, it's still your name. He goes back to stay the same, you know, the second night. And then he says the same dream and Angel coming down, taking that that sign, you know, taking his name out, racing it and put in the name of some woman. The guy wakes up again, very, very annoyed. Has anybody changed my name, go back and check. They went they changed. They came back says no, your name is still there. It has not been changed. The third day, he has the same dream. The same dream
by now he has memorized the name of this woman.
The third day says called God bring me the name of this woman. I want to see this woman. This Angel coming down changing my name and put in her name. Go get me this woman. It was an old woman. They looked for her. They found her an old woman Myskina luck, poor. She comes in. He says What did you do? She said,
What did you do? No, no, you must have done something. She says I'm a poor woman. What would I do? I asked nobody to pitch in. I wouldn't want nobody to contribute to build this mosque. What did you do? I know you said that I didn't do I'm a poor woman anyways. I cannot pay I cannot do anything. He says no, you must have done something. Because this name has changed. My name has changed angels coming down to put your name as the name of this method. You must have done something she says I'm a poor woman. The only thing I have done. Look, the SS. The only thing she has done was she was walking by and she sold these camels. You know this mules, the mules that they used to do to carry
scent and to carry water to help build the method to help build the mosque. And they and this camp and the mules. They were you know, leached, you know, there was a leech and they were standing by outside of the masjid. And one of them was thirsty. She was trying to get some water because there was a bucket of water next to it, you know, and he looked mute. And this and this mule was trying to move her head and get close to the water. She was trying to drink and she couldn't. And this old woman she saw her trying to get close to that to that bucket. And then what did she do? She says I only took that bucket of water. And I gave it put it close to her. So that mule drank from it.
That's all she did. She says, You did that for the sake of Allah. I wanted to build this mosque, not for the sake of Allah, but you did it for the sake of Allah. And he changed the name of the measure after her name because of this little, you know, trivial thing that she has done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters Would you believe? Would you believe that a prostitute?

She saw the dog being thirsty, she went down into that well, and then she took her shoes, she took her shoes, she filled them with water.
And then she went up the well and she watered the dog. Our Prophet says Allah forgive her and made her antigen, she watered a dog she did not want a human being there are people today who are opposing you know this, this the people today who are dying of thirst in hersa in fall of Spain because they could not get clean water clean water water clean water because the Muslims were living next door they put
