Mashallah, welcome to season two, Episode Two of our series blast from the past serum in the 21st century. Yesterday, Allah Hill, we completed Episode One,
in terms of season two, and it was an introduction, it was allowing one in all to understand exactly what we will be doing over the course of the upcoming nights during this blessed month of Ramadan. And
I made clear when Allah And for those who were wondering why we calling the season two, that season one began in Melbourne, Australia last year with Lila Hill. And we covered a good chunk of the Sierra, up to the migration of the Muslims to have a shot. We also discussed My dear brothers and sisters, the objectives of our time together so that we benefit manifestly You see,
I didn't mention yesterday, but we can mention this today. And that is that
there are a lot of things that we do in life, which are good to do.
But it doesn't mean that something is good to do that it is right to do. You must always remember this, right? And I have a principle, you can write this down. And you can tweet it, but it's copyright. So you must put my name if you tweet it.
And that principle is everything right is good. But not everything good is necessarily right. must always remember this. And we are taught this in the Sharia, even if we look at marriage and getting married, right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to look for religion, religion, right, as a decisive factor in choosing our potential spouse, but Islam has also taught us that from the conditions of the continuation of the marriage, is that this compatibility, compatibility, so somebody could be religious, this is good. But it doesn't mean that they're religious, that they're right for us, we could be incompatible. It could be a factor, you know, you could be a person who's
very quiet. You like a quiet house, but this person who you might get married to talks a lot. What's going to happen, right, you're going to have ringing ears for the rest of your life. Right? This, this can happen. So you look at compatibility to make sure that we are concentrating on what is right. I'll give you another example. If you read a book, a self development book, a good book, not a story book, a fictional book, a self development book, you read this book, The night of an exam, and you still not ready for the exam. Let's say you have a math exam tomorrow, and you're reading a self development book. Now reading is good. But is it the right thing to do at that time? No, it's
not the right thing to do. So not everything good is right. But everything right is good. And the reason why I say this brothers and sisters is because we discussing our objectives. Right? We are here to do something good.
But we must make sure that it's right. You know, sitting and listening to a talk is a good thing. Nobody's gonna say you lost. Staying in the house of Allah is a good thing. Nobody's going to say you've lost in fact Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam says in a hadith reported by Abu hurayrah in certainly Muslim and this is going to make those who are sitting happy. mage
fi beta min booty la
luna kita la vida rasuna houfy mabhida home in la de la Heba Sakina Watashi
wa have a tubal Malaika was a caribou la semaine de la ilaha illa Allah, listen to this of Malaysia Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, There is no group of people who come together in a house from the houses of Allah. We are here in Masjid Omar
robiola White House from the houses of Allah yet Luna keytab Allah, they come together to recite the book of Allah like our fathers and mothers here, our brothers and sisters here. That's what we've been doing. We're here today rasuna FEMA bayda home and they learn together the lessons of this book, like what we do right now. The series is dedicated towards teaching lessons from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, For these people are a minimum of four gifts for presence. And we all like presence, right? I'll bring you a present inshallah, one of these days with the lighter, I will. What are these presence from Allah? inland SLS Allah He was
Sakina Allah causes contentment before the gathering, contentment, peace, serenity, you know, but not that peace that puts you to sleep you know some people Mashallah when they listen to Islamic talk, they start dozing off. Then they then when you say brother, sister, what happened is I'm feeling the Sakina I'm feeling the peace. We say no, no, no, the, the piece that you feel when you come to a gathering makes you learn more. It doesn't put you to sleep. Some people call it it's a pious sleep. the sleep of the pious when you sleep, when Islamic lessons are going on. Elana SLS, Allah He was Sakina contentment before the gathering. We're here tomorrow. And this gathering Allah
causes them to become engulfed by Allah's mercy. We are sitting right now in the mercy of Allah. If you ask Allah to forgive you, you have asked Allah to forgive you while you are sitting in Allah's mercy, Allah will forgive you. If you ask Allah for gender, you have asked Allah for gender. Once you are sitting in Allah as mercy, Allah will give you gender. If you make dua for your children, you are making dua for your children, or for your parents or for your spouses or for your family or for your community or for your country. In Allah's mercy, allow and accepted we know my dear brothers and sisters, it's our sins that block the mercy of Allah reaching us. Now, Allah has given
us a chance by making us and choosing us to sit in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the harmful effects of our sins cannot harm us now we are in the mercy of Allah. This is the time to ask from Allah. This is the time to remember Allah, this is the time to learn there is no better gathering than the gathering of knowledge. This is the second present. What's the third present? Allah causes angels to surround this gathering. La Ilaha Illa angels Yama, yes, angels, as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us dedicated angels that Allah has created to travel the earth to traverse the globe. Looking for gatherings such as this, Allah sends them and
says, Go look for my servants who have gathered to learn from the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the angels rush, because they love to follow Allah commands, they rush
and they search and they search until one angel or a group of angels comes across Masjid. rumery will come up
and say Subhana Allah, I found what Allah told me to find. Now, what do the angels do? as taught as taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the angels are not selfish. They don't selfish. They're not selfish.
They are selfless, you know, if it was you and me, and we came across a million ringgit, for example. Which should be the secret Don't tell anyone where it is. Right. What are the angels do the angels call out to the other angels?
Tell them I have found what Allah has told us to find rush, come here, come here and let's be part of this gathering Subhana Allah. So they surround this gathering My dear brothers and sisters, and what's the fourth gift? The fourth gift is that Allah subhanahu wa taala praises the people in this gathering praises them to the angels love. Allah praises us. Imagine a love mentioning your name and mentioning your name and mentioning your names and mentioning your names. How proud are you? You know if our father mentioned our name in a household out of all the brothers and sisters our father says, Mohamed Mashallah, I'm very proud of you. How would you feel right? You at school in front of
hundreds of students. The headmaster says Fatima, very proud of you, you make the school proud. Imagine that. How would you feel? You feel very excited you want to go home? Tell your parents. Imagine if some senior figure in Malaysia Mashallah singles you out from the whole country and mentions your name? How proud would you feel? You feel excited? You want to take the whole family out for dinner? Mashallah, right something to celebrate. Now, imagine if Rob gula melaka, Luke, the Lord of the worlds, the King of kings, mentions you by name to His angels, citing how proud Allah subhanho wa Taala is, imagine how special that is. This is the reality of this gathering My dear
brothers and sisters. And that is why, and especially since Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Adele and his family, that the one who points towards good is like the one who does good. That is why you should make sure you bring someone in your right hand and you bring someone in your left hand when you come for this lesson. So that you get these rewards that I have shared from the people you bring as well. So this is the beauty of Islam, and hamdulillah for Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala.
grant us the understanding me. So this is a blessing gathering being here is good, my dear brothers and sisters, but we want to make it right. Remember, we said right is the best? How do we make it right? By remembering what we shared yesterday, the objectives I'm not going to go into them in detail like we did yesterday or a little bit of detail.
But I'll just summarize them for you. We said from the objectives is number one from our sitting together to love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Make sure you are clear about this. So when you leave, you don't just benefit from the gathering, you've benefited even better by growing your love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Number two, develop your understanding for the Quran. Because events of the Sierra are mentioned generally in the Quran, like we said yesterday. Number three, to understand or develop and grow our understanding of the irrelevance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his history in our life today. So yesterday we said when you go
home on the way I learned this today, I learned that today and I have this issue I'm looking at or I have this program I'm looking at how can I bless it by bringing about edit something manifest today from the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning something that I can make manifest because I have pondered over his life and there's only goodness in following something which he did. Number four, loving the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that if you sit with me and we learn together, and from this after Ramadan, for example, you say right, I am going to read the series of Abubakar Robbie Allah Who I am going to read the series of se
Allahu Allahu matrimony and the other companions I have a desire to now Al Hamdulillah you have really really benefited from our time together This is doing something not just good, but doing something right. Right. And a pearl which stood out from yesterday in summarizing yesterday My dear brothers and sisters is that by sitting together like this, we ended up following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam more Why? Because whenever we love somebody more, we want to follow them. Remember that lesson? Right? So inshallah, if you go home and you decide I want to revive a Sunnah I want to use the miswak. I want to now be diligent with Suna narrative, the student voluntary Salah
around the pharaoh Salah I want to revive reading my dryer when I entered the house when I leave the house before eating after eating. Why because now you love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more you want to follow him all right, this is very good. This is you having set a gathering which is right for you and not just good for you. So let's look after the objectives. We have also Hannah who is Allah grant us the understanding
mean, my dear brothers and sisters, one of the one of the Sorry, I'm having a tongue twister. Now, one other objective that I didn't say yesterday and that we can share that now. And this is the beauty when we have a long sitting together over a course of so many nights, I can think of something after or just before and we can share it with one another. One of the objectives that you must take from this is understanding yesterday for a better today and tomorrow.
Understanding yesterday for a better today and tomorrow, because really we are going through history. And history is important to us brothers and sisters. History is important, right? If we look at the Quran, we see Allah subhanho wa Taala has named 30 Sutras, at least on my account, 30 Sutras, after historical events. Imagine that, after historical events, Allah could have named it anything else because Surah Baqarah Surah Baqarah, almost 300 is in Surah Al Baqarah, Allah named
right, referring to a small portion of the surah
excuse me, a small portion of the surah, which highlights a historical event with a lot of Moosa to tell the people, his people, but who is trying to slaughter a cow. This is a historical event, similar to yesterday, Mashallah, after we were reciting it here Soraka.
Its name after a historical event. It's a name which references the people of the cave, people who lived in the past, allies teaching us from history. So understand the relevance of history brothers and sisters, for a better today and tomorrow, both Islamic history and general world history. You know, now that we are 100 years after world war one, it's important that you read about World War One, I tell you something, my dear brothers and sisters, there are so many correlations, based on your experiences today that you will appreciate when you read World War One, there are so many things that are just as they are today. Because of the tipping point of world war one it was because
of that certain things are as they are today, it helps us really understand today. It helps you know, it protects us from hyperventilating. Sometimes we look at a situation and we feel the situation is impossible for us. We hyperventilate because of that, but the reality is we haven't really understood the setting that really brought it about history helps us do this. I'm not going to dive into World War One in the lessons of World War One. That's a different topic altogether. But I just want to excite you to understand the importance of history and learning about history. Now, one of the questions that was asked was, or after our introduction was, what's the best book to
learn the Sierra? Can you tell us a book to read to study the Sierra? Well, as I said yesterday, brothers and sisters, as many books there's many books but let me just clinically answer this question because the question I said what is the best book, the best book to learn the zero is the Quran. The best book to learn the Sierra is the Quran. Look, look at Surah Surah Allah Allah, Allah, Masha Surah Taha Al Imran surah, Allah talks about offered surah two talks about better, right, so the Quran study the Quran is the best reference for the Sierra. And it is the root of the Sierra, no doubt, and it is the foundation of the zero, no doubt. And just for your information. There's a
quote by Eileen
right. He says, that we used to lead the expeditions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Just like we used to learn a surah from the Quran, just like we used to learn a surah from the Quran. And I think that quote, answers the question, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best, my dear brothers and sisters. In these remaining minutes I want to introduce to you what we promise to take today. And that was the Islam of Hamza radi Allahu Allah. And Omar Ravi, Allah who are our leaders, the giants that walked the face of this earth before us yesterday, I described them as the Giants upon whose shoulders You and I are trying to balance ourselves. We'll introduce you today. We'll
take some lessons today. And continue with the lessons tomorrow. And remember, as I said, we are analyzing and we're not just storytelling. Now what's amazing if we look at the Islam of Hamza and Omar, Ravi Allahumma, is that one person's Islam happened out of defense of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the other person's Islam happened according to some reports out of his desire to kill Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So
look how Allah subhanho wa
Allah guides matters, that sometimes you think you know, but you don't know. You think you think something is good for you, but you don't know you think you think something's bad for you, but you don't know. The result is both of them became Muslim. But the reason is two different things. One wanted to annihilate Islam, the other one who wanted to defend his nephew.
You know, Hamza, right, never knew about the intricacies of the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But when we look into his Islam, we see that he was someone who was as a preset born in Makkah, before the birth of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, or two years before the birth of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So in terms of age, he wasn't much older. He wasn't, you know, a very senior person to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. In terms of age, yes, you are senior in terms of rack. And because they were similar in age, they were close. I think we know the some of us have uncles who we are older, right? We might be the case. I don't know how
it is in Malaysia. But I can tell you from travel, like in the Indian subcontinent and other countries, you find that this person is the nephew, but he's older than his uncle. Right? So here we have an uncle that's only two years older than Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam. So by default, they were close, they shared matters, and they had a relationship. Now.
The interesting thing about Hamza rhodiola, and which probably many don't know, is yes, he was an uncle to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But he was also a foster brother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which means they drank milk from one female. So he was a foster brother to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the female that they drank milk from is the famous Halima Serra de right. And
Hamza Allah blessed to become a Muslim, very early on in the second year
after the advent of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So in the second year after the Buddha, don't get things mixed up, we have we have the years after Prophethood. And we have the years after we have reached age, right? We're talking about the years after Prophethood. Okay, so in the years after prophet the second year, very early on, he accepted Islam. But how what happened? Well, you know, my dear brothers and sisters, that
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Muslims were being persecuted bad. They were being badly persecuted. And from the worst enemies of Islam was Abu jihad.
And he was harming Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and the Muslims were hiding in a house the amount Safa known as there are
these to hide they're the first school of Islam and what will make you understand you know, the school I speak about it in length in blast from the past season one inshallah with the DVDs out please
have a listen.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once came out of this home, and Abuja being true to his enmity towards Islam. He met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he attacked him verbally, and he attacked him physically. So Pamela, this is what he did. He attacked the most beloved to Allah, He attacked our beloved sallallahu alayhi wasallam what the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam do nothing nothing.
And there's a lesson that we came from this we'll come to it inshallah. Now, what happened was, someone
saw what happened and this someone was a slave girl, a slave girl. And this shows you my dear brothers and sisters that the sisters have a place in the oma. You know, there's many great attributes that are attributed to the females of Islam.
I'm unsure if you became a Muslim, but she was a slave girl at the time of a person known as Abdullayev in Japan.
She went to Hamza
because Hamza arrived into Makkah. Hamza was known for his bravery for his hunting. So he was out with his bow and arrow. As soon as he came in. She went to him and she said, You know what Abu Jamal has attacked Rasulullah has attacked your family member has attacked your family member. So Hamza became deeply offended obviously, because he was a friend of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now pay attention. He wasn't cross because Islam was attacked. This is an important point and we'll come to it. He was upset. Why? Because his close relation was attacked. He was upset because his friend was attacked. Pay attention to this point the child
We'll come to it when we analyze the story. So he rushed and went to a Buddha Hall. And Hamza was a very direct person, candid person. And he struck Abuja hell with his with his bow, right, the bow and arrow with the bone structure with this happened, obviously, you know how it was that the tribes used to defend each other. You know, if you attack one person, you've attacked one of us. This is tribal mentality of the region then. Right. And that's why, you know, even Persia and Rome they weren't interested with.
They weren't interested with this region here because it was just a rugged region. And the people had rugged mentalities is just tribal mentality. This was the mindset. So when a Buddha was struck by Hamza, his people came forward, his people came forward.
And when they came forward, a Buddha has told them stay back. Because, you know, if they attack them The other type of attacks, this becomes a big matter. Right? And the Buddha has said, stay back, because I did do what I did to Muhammad, shamelessly meaning I wanted to do it, so I did I deserve what's happened, this is not an oppression
which means what there were some good qualities in
you know, we we say even people who are bad, they have some good qualities, I will look up which is bad. But he said, Look, I deserve this. This will make a bigger issue than it is. I will admit, I will be truthful. I struck Mohammed shamelessly I wanted to do it. So this is the retaliation. If you do the crime, you must do the time, as we say in the English language. So this is what happens. Now, to sort the matter out, Hamza responded to Abuja, and said, You should leave him for indeed me, meaning I meaning Hamza, I am upon what he preaches as well. I am upon what he preaches, as well, this is what happens.
So again, pay attention. He's just saying it to defend the honor of Baba sallallahu alayhi wasallam not order or defend the honor of Islam. Very important point. inshallah we'll get to this when we get to the analysis today. I just want to introduce it to you.
The next Islam is the Islam of Omar robiola. Why was Omar Abdullah who, as I said, he accepted Islam there's many
Mashallah, there's fireworks out there. What's happening?
Is it because we said
this is my shiroma Mashallah. So, with regards to over the several durations regarding how he accepted Islam, right. All the durations agree, even though they differ with regards to the early parts of the story, they agree that he heard the Quran and the Quran was a means of him becoming a Muslim. They all agree to this. Please put this in your notes because we got to analyze this. Right. And with regards to Omar, as I said, it was a contrasting story to Hamza and Indeed, Allah does what he wants when he wants how he wants. With regards to Omar the most important points after this that I wanted to share is the following. Number one. Omar was a fierce enemy of Islam. It wasn't like
Hamza before Islam. He was a fierce enemy. Omar was the one who told the Quraysh or told the leaders in the House of Representatives, that you know what, whoever accepts Islam, we should start beating them. We should start persecuting them. We should start punishing them. It was Omar who said this, take note of this. In fact, Omar, he beat the slave girl who he was responsible over for accepting Islam from morning till night. And when he finished, he said to her, Omar has not stopped beating you because Omar feels sorry for you. Omar has stopped beating you because the handover has become tight. So Hannah law, this is so this is the second point. The third point I want you to note from
your story which we will we will analyze tomorrow inshallah, is that even though Omar was doing this Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was making dua.
For in the Sierra, we see that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say, Allahu Allah, Islam.
Be a Happy Happy New Raja lady like that, Oh Allah, under Islam, with the most beloved of these two people to you. Abuja, hon Omar. So even though these two people were punishing the Muslims and being bad to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam he was making dry for the day. He was making dry for there he died. Point number three. And let's note the lines of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and chose aroma and didn't choose a Pooja Pooja is destined for the fire. Take note of this we will analyze this tomorrow inshallah point number three
You need to know from the story of the Islam of Omar is that when Ronda accepted Islam, immediately he went to the same House of Representatives. There's different variations of how he got the message there. But in terms of what the regime he went to them, he went to Abuja, and he said, I am here to inform you that I am upon the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam lufia. No care candidate direct. He wasn't worried. What will they say about me? How bad will I look? You know, just yesterday, I was telling them, we should punish them. Now I'm accepting the message people are going to say you weak, no, nothing like that. He used to stand firm upon the truth. The last point I
want you to take note in terms of urban is Islam and inshallah we will analyze all these points tomorrow with the light Allah, may Allah preserve us it is obedience me is that when Omar accepted Islam, he went through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he said, Why are we hiding? And how are we not upon the truth? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, he said, we will stop hiding. Let's march together to the caravan. And the Muslims came out with honor. And they marched towards the caravan with cameras on one side and armor on one side and all of the Quraysh and the leaders could only look on and nobody dare attack the Muslims because they said how can we attack them when they have armor and Hamza with them? How can we attack these people? So please take note of this My dear brothers and sisters, because even Mr. Ravi Allah who said that, from the time Omar accepted Islam we were no more seen as the underdogs or we no more
felt that we were the underdogs This is a rough translation, but I want you to take note of this as well inshallah, tomorrow with the law we will dive into what we said lessons, lessons lessons, your tongues are wet now inshallah. Tomorrow we will make the story of these two people relevant today with the law to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala bless our deeds, bless our words, bless our time. I mean, you're a banana mean, I love your for the sake of Allah. Allah preserve us it is obedience. I mean, until tomorrow, Episode Three. So how to live we'll be happy to kinda lahoma we have deca, the shadow Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to boo Lake wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina
Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
