millenia Karim. Rubbish Audrey is really angry at me Lisa and E. coli. When you have brothers and sisters in Islam, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Him, we seek his assistance and we seek His forgiveness. And we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon, the man can misguide her, and serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrease misguidance of one than none can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship

00:01:13--> 00:01:28

besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger by the brothers and sisters in Islam. My dear mothers and fathers and uncles and Auntie's. I greet you with the greetings of Islam. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:01:30--> 00:02:00

Welcome everybody to Episode Six of season two of our series blast from the past CRR in the 21st century, yesterday, in Episode Five, we covered just towards the end of the episode, another major event in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is when the pagans the polytheists came together, not as a consensus, as we discussed yesterday, but came together

00:02:01--> 00:02:26

as a large group, and made an agreement or took an oath of disbelief as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and they took this oath of disbelief not in their own language, where a lot of the decision making happens when there was a consensus amongst the Quraysh. However, they did it in a place near Mina. And this oath

00:02:27--> 00:02:40

mandated that a boycott come into effect, a boycott come into effect of all those who are with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Number one, as well as

00:02:41--> 00:02:52

number two, as well as biopolymer. Number three, why? Why Banu Hashim? Why bellomo while they

00:02:53--> 00:03:33

promised to defend Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So because they promised to do so even though they were not Muslim, these people who still promised to defend Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, even though they were not Muslim, but because they were defending him, they should be affected by this boycott as well. When was the boycott and when they handed over Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. So this is what we discussed yesterday, it got to a stage in which they said enough is enough. Nothing is working. We need extra measures, we need stronger measures. So on the first of Muharram, in the seventh year afternoon, after the advent of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi

00:03:33--> 00:04:14

wasallam, this boycott happened. And as we said yesterday, Abu Talib took the people that were going to be affected by this boycott to be a pilot. And that's where they stayed. And we ended up saying that the cries of children could be heard cries of hunger, cries of illness, cries of fear the Christ could be heard. But but but these pagans did not break that agreement and to rubber stamp the agreement. They they hung the agreement up in the cabinet so that no one day break the agreement. Now, what this is obviously a summary. We have some new faces Mashallah, today.

00:04:16--> 00:04:24

What are the lessons that we learned from this boycott? Well, number one, my dear brothers and sisters, we learn that

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

ignorance is a dangerous thing.

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

Ignorance is a dangerous thing. And it is ignorance that creates world disasters. It is ignorance that causes family feuds. It is ignorance. That is a means of dis uniting the ignorance, we can say. As goes the English thing is the mother of all evil, meaning it's at the top. When evil happens if you analyze how that evil happened to be you will see

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Somewhere at the top from the primary causes is an ignorance. This is a fact. Right? If you look at surah Yousuf, Yousuf Ali his Salaam, when the women of Egypt, were trying to

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

seduce him, or threaten him with jail, what did he say? He turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala and said, Oh my Lord, indeed jail is more beloved to me than that which they are calling me to. And if you don't avert, if you don't avert this test, and this plot of this, I will become inclined to that which they are calling me to, and thus be from the ignorance. This is what he said use Valley center and this V from the ignorant, the scholars of Pepsi, they gathered from the steps of Hannah law, when a person does a sin, ignorance is in play.

00:06:01--> 00:06:34

If they are knowledgeable that this is a sin, then they are ignorant of Allah subhanho wa Taala and ignorant at the time of the sin that Allah subhanho wa Taala is aware is the old see is the old hearing. And even if they have a lapse of this knowledge, it's not at the level required, there has to be a level of ignorance otherwise, I mean, what else can we call it? that a person knows that Allah sees me right now. And once he sees me without remorse, I'm going to do this then this is the type of

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

arrogance,

00:06:37--> 00:07:27

right, like the arrogance portrayed by Chez Panisse and the arrogance portrayed by Iran. And we know what happened to these people may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Ignorance is dangerous. Islam is the opposite of ignorance. If you look at Islam, its foundation is corrupt. And it means read. And when you read you become educated. This is the foundation of Islam. The pen or instrument of Islam, the instrument of Islam is the pen. The pen is a learning instrument is an instrument of education. Allah subhanho wa Taala takes a person by the pen. Allah says loan well call me Mama is a law takes a person by the pen. Allah doesn't take an oath on a person except by that which is

00:07:27--> 00:07:37

important, except by that which is which is delicate, except by that which is precious, Allah takes us on BY THE PENDANT AND in Surah

00:07:39--> 00:08:23

in Surah, Baqarah, Arabic Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in it, Allah, the Allah, Allah, though, the one who taught by the pen, so the pen is the instrument of Islam, and the pen is an instrument of education. Islam is the total opposite of education. In fact, if you look at the rewards that Islam has placed for the person who lands, these rewards are great and mighty. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the famous hadith of Abu Dhabi, Allah one man Salah Qatari is the one who turns a path. Young Tammy Sophie here in men seeking Islamic knowledge to Halawa hula hoop

00:08:24--> 00:08:58

genre, then Allah will make his way to gender easy. So Pamela, the reward for seeking knowledge is genuine. I mean, you know, today when you want to understand how noble a task is, you look at the package. what's the what's the offer? What are they giving me? How much are they paying me? What are the benefits? Right? Does housing come with it? The school fees come with it does transport come with it, we look at the package. So what package has Allah given for the one who seeks knowledge? None other than gender. The greatest price suppiler of

00:08:59--> 00:09:43

Islam is the opposite of ignorance. And anyone who's fighting Islam is an ignorant person because all they are doing is fighting education. All they are doing is fighting knowledge, divine knowledge, all they're doing is fighting solutions. That's what they are doing. And nobody fights education, fights divine knowledge, fights education besides an ignorant one, I think we can all agree, except the person who doesn't know. This is the only person who can do this. ignorance. If we look at the first crime committed on Earth, it was a man. I mean, it was jealousy, no doubt and jealousy stems from ignorance as well. The two sons of Adam and inserra the one son killed the other

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

son. Why? out of jealousy, and that which causes jet jealousy as well as ignorance when a person does when a person understands my dear brothers and sisters, if Allah gives somebody something, and Allah hasn't given you it, and you have knowledge, not ignorance,

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

That I have a Lord, who is Allah honey is the old rich, he's perpetually rich, he's bound, he's never come to an end. And I have a Lord, who gives.

00:10:15--> 00:10:32

If a person knows this, he will not feel jealous at something which Allah has given somebody else. Why? Because this person will know that the Allah who gave them is the same Allah who can give me it's not that Allah didn't give me because he doesn't have

00:10:33--> 00:11:10

no allies. Allah honey is perpetually rich. Allah has no he hasn't given me. So this is not good for us. This is what knowledge does for you. And jealousy has no place there. But when you ignorant, and you don't think of Allah and Allah has names and allows attributes, you fail to have perspective in your life. So the door is open for Sherpa now to whisper. He is evil. And then it manifests into murder sometimes, like we see in the story of the two sons of Adam alayhis. Salam, as Allah teaches us in the Quran, the first crime on Earth.

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

Right? If you look at the brothers of use of alley hustler, they want to kill this boy. And then they settled to dump him into the bottom of a well, even though he's a young infant. What made them do this ignorance, the father was naturally paying more attention to us, because it was a small boy, any father, any mother does this, the younger child you more overprotective, the older children, the old, they have independence, these sons through ignorance, they open the door for shavon to spread in the heart, that your father loves us more than you and you are a bigger number. You brothers are from one mother and you are so many brothers. It's just him and his other brother from the other

00:11:55--> 00:12:38

from the other mothers, the scholars have to say, and he's giving so much attention to them. And he's forgetting about you. You see they left ignorance left them open to attack. May Allah protect us from Jehan Ameen. And may Allah bless us with relevant knowledge. I mean, Abu Jahan, as I said yesterday, they would call him a bull hacker, the father of wisdom, but a man of wisdom would not fight education. And that is why he was renamed abou as the man of ignorance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from ignorance. I mean, and that is my brothers and sisters. We need to educate ourselves. You know, many people ask, I'm trying to get more for sure in my Salah. I'm trying to

00:12:38--> 00:13:24

fast better. I'm trying to become a better Muslim. I'm trying to leave sin, you know, where you start becoming better by educating yourself. Right? You know, we spoke about learning the Sierra so it grows our love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Remember that first episode, and we said when you love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam what happens? You want to follow him? You want to it's just human nature. So to live sin and increase your posture in Salah. You should want to worship Allah you shouldn't be forced to worship Allah. How do you become a person who wants to worship Allah by loving Allah subhanho wa Taala more? How do you love Allah subhanho wa Taala more

00:13:24--> 00:14:06

by learning about Allah subhanho wa Taala learning about his names, learning about his attributes, learning about the meanings of these names, the meanings, I mean, the meanings of these names and the effect of these names in our lives, pondering over these names, reflecting over these names, looking at the creation of Allah around us, the mountains, the clouds, the skies, our bodies, the food that we have, how rainfalls how plants grow, that the makeup of this body, it's so perfect, the system is perfect. Allah has given veins that carry deoxygenated blood and arteries that carry oxygenated blood. If the route switch we're going to have a problem except for one vein, which is

00:14:06--> 00:14:45

known as the pulmonary vein. And one artery which is known as the pulmonary artery, which carries what he normally doesn't carry which pulmonary artery is carrying. This time deoxygenated blood, the pulmonary vein, this time is carrying oxygenated blood. This is not a mistake. This is how Allah made it because arteries by default, take blood away from the heart and veins bring blood back to the heart. What a perfect system of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah has given us heart to heart, with four chambers with his bicuspid valves and so on and so forth. The makeup of it, the leaf, the structure of the leaf, the cells of the leaf, the whole process of osmosis, the whole

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

process, the process of photosynthesis, and the connection of the skies to the earth where these plants need the sun to produce oxygen and so on and so forth. Allahu Akbar. It couldn't have happened by mistake when you ponder over

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

This there's nothing else for you to say except for Bella Mahara. Allah Subhana Allah Allah now, there's nothing else for you to say except Oh our Lord. Indeed you didn't create this without purpose. You didn't create this infants hood, our Lord fucking

00:15:20--> 00:15:55

protect us and save us from the hellfire. This is the only result that comes from a person who punches over the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then a person who learns about Allah from the fitrah and will discuss the speed nilla attack. The next lesson, my dear brothers that we learn from this is taqwa and we in a month of taqwa or should I say a month of seeking taqwa. It's important we understand this brothers and sisters, it doesn't mean that you enter Amman. So when Ramadan leaves you're going to have all of a sudden, no, Allah subhanho wa Taala has said law law.

00:15:57--> 00:16:44

Which means perhaps you make attained taqwa, which means taqwa is not the net result of just fasting. But it means that fasting helps you seek taqwa and taqwa has to be sought. If attaining taqwa was as easy as staying away from food and drink from federal troodon until sunset, everybody who first would have taco let's be honest, right? So understand, we need to seek taqwa. We learned from the story of the boycott of the Muslims, the importance of toccoa in our life, and that taqwa can only come from worship, and that worship can only come from knowledge, because we are not allowed to speak and we are not allowed to do except after we have knowledge, right? environment

00:16:44--> 00:17:28

Bukhari Rahim Allah, he has a chapter in history, and equals this chapter bear with me Cabell County will amend the chapter of knowledge before speech and action. The reason why he has this chapter is because he's come across so many Hadees that teach us not to speak and not to act before we learn. And this is goes back to the first lesson that we have ignorance is dangerous, and we combat ignorance with education. So we learn taqwa from the story, because the person who educates can worship and the person who worships can attain taqwa. And this is the reality My dear brothers and sisters, if somebody asked you what's the purpose of life, you say the purpose of life is to worship

00:17:28--> 00:17:55

Allah. If they asked you what's the purpose of worship? You say the purpose of worship is to attain taqwa. This is the reality. Everything is to attain temple. This is from the mercy of Allah, that he put us in the system of worship. So we can earn that which will gain us salvation in the hereafter. Allah subhanho wa Taala and sudo to Baqarah says, Yes, sir Buddha como la de holla come in public law.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

Right? Allah says,

00:17:59--> 00:18:07

all mankind, worship your Lord, the one who created you and created the people before you. Why Allah,

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

like he said, For fasting,

00:18:11--> 00:18:53

so that perhaps you may attain taqwa, we Allah grant us the understanding, I mean, the next lesson, my dear brothers and sisters to understand is that if Allah brings you to something, Allah will take you through it. Pay attention to this, Allah doesn't burden us with a burden that we cannot manage. There is no difficulty that comes to you. Except that you should know that if it's come to me, that means I can manage this difficult, I can carry this difficulty. And if I have this belief, then Allah will take me through it. The same being who brought it to me will take me through it. Because Allah said later you can live Allahu Allah.

00:18:54--> 00:19:38

Allah doesn't burden you with a burden that you cannot manage. A law will not cause a death to come in your family insha Allah except after you are able to manage yourself with that death. Allah will not test you with a test, except when you are ready to manage that test. Let's be honest, the Muslims are going into boycott in the seventh year after Lulu, not in the first year, not in the second year, not in the third year, not in the fourth year, not before the Islamic Ummah, not before the Islam of Hamza, they are going into boycott in the seventh year. Allah knew that this was good for the Muslims and Allah knew that they can manage it at this stage Subhan Allah, we have to

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

understand this. This is the lesson that we learned that if a calamity strikes, before shaper makes you cry, tears of defeat. Take a deep breath and stand up tall and say Bismillah I'm fastening my seatbelt, and I'm getting ready for the journey. Why? Because I know Allah would have never given me this test. If I was unable to manage this difficult

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

I can manage it. My job is to be patient and insha Allah I can. important lesson My dear brothers and sisters. Okay? And why is it an important lesson or another lesson we can get from this boycott is that we don't live in gender This is not gender. Gender is the place with static happiness. Always happy. Forget about being sad ever. Forget about being sick sick ever forget about being ill ever or being at a loss ever no gender is, you know, the worst dream you can have is having things and the best dream you can have is having things meaning there's no loss in general hamdulillah.

00:20:41--> 00:21:08

Right. We not in gender. And also remember we're not in Jana. Jana is the place of everlasting doom and gloom and sadness. This is the dunya is dynamic these days that are for us, and there's days that are against us. There's happy days, and they're sad days, they are easy days. And there are difficulties. This is the dunya the people who become sad and say why, why why why is this happening? They have forgotten that they're not in gender.

00:21:11--> 00:21:52

And they must never forget that they're not Indiana meaning the situation is going to get better. The only place where it goes worse and worse and worse is in Indiana May Allah protect us all my dear brothers and sisters, and Grant has patience if he tests us, and we are law protect us from being tested. I mean, we can speak much on this. But I want to summarize by saying a narration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam either Allahu Allah. If Allah loves his servant, Allah will test himself. He loved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tested him. He loved the Sahaba. He tested them. He loved his messengers, he tested them, he loved his prophets, he tested them. This is

00:21:52--> 00:22:31

the son of Allah on this earth. It's a universal law. It's the reality of the dunya Welcome to the dunya My dear brothers and sisters, this is the welcome if you pass it well, and you are patient during hard times, and you are thankful during good times, as is the way of a believer, then for you is gender. And when you get there insha Allah you will be welcomed into gender, the angels will welcome you and say, oh, servant of Allah, or child of Adam, welcome to gender. Before you hear that welcome. Don't think you in gentlemen, that's the message from this particular lesson. May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted me

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

the next lesson, my dear brothers and sisters, is that,

00:22:37--> 00:22:45

oh, it's a highlight of a previous lesson that we took. And that is, no matter how evil someone is.

00:22:46--> 00:23:30

It's not impossible for them to manifest qualities of goodness. Right? It doesn't mean that someone doesn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala that they it's impossible for them to have some good manners. It doesn't mean this. It doesn't mean that someone doesn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala that they will never support something which Islam supports. It doesn't mean that where do we learn that from? From Hisham, even Abraham, Abraham, and even ID and Abu Bakar, even he Sham and others, these few people who were very upset at what was happening. They didn't like what their elders did. So they decided no, they got together and they said, Let's campaign. Let's campaign.

00:23:30--> 00:24:12

Let's tell them to stop this. This nonsense. Let's tell them to stop this madness. This children crying this people ill with the humanity. This is from people who never believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala and never accepted the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet, but this is what they were doing. Did they do good or bad? They did good. And not just good. Very good. Did they do something which Islam would support? Absolutely. Islam would support. Right, Islam would support this. And you know, in season one I discussed with the brothers and sisters in Australia, the healthful food, this health, this meeting that took place with the disbelievers that Rasulullah

00:24:12--> 00:24:50

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praise, it was done by people who denied Allah, people who worshiped idols, but he praised he was That was good. And if it happened, now, I would go to it. Meaning if somebody does something that Islam support, support, you don't say I'm not getting involved because because they haven't said Allah is one. And they haven't accepted the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In fact, if you have this attitude, you are only doing Islam a disservice. Because now what you're doing is you're isolating the Muslim community, and you're not giving an opportunity for the non Muslims to see the beautiful nature of Islam. Right. You're not

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

giving you know, they say the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. So people see you before they hear you right

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

You mix with these people in doing that which Islam supports as well. Yes, they might not hear you preaching Islam to them. But you'll see the Islam in you, the honesty, the the character, and perhaps that will be a means of the hidayah and guidance. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala opens upon whom he was when he was how he wills subhanho wa Taala. So this is a very important message, my dear brothers and sisters, today, if we look in the 21st century, we see non Muslims campaigning for Palestine, campaigning for Burma, campaigning for Syria, campaigning for, you know, all these countries that have oppression in it that have difficulty in it that have, you know, children who

00:25:43--> 00:26:21

are starving, and women who are mistreated. We have none Muslims campaigning, right, this is in front of us. This lesson that we saying is from history. We see it in front of us today. That is goodness, some goodness, in those who Yes, they deny Allah, and they deny he's received very doesn't mean because of that. They they're not a human being. They're not a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We still don't understand that they are creation of Allah, and they have rights upon us. You are rights of humanity, they have rights of if they are neighbors, for example, this is right to their right, Islam has put those rights. Allah has put those rights. Allah has said, honor your

00:26:21--> 00:27:09

neighbor, Allah didn't say your Muslim neighbor. In fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, with a happiness Illa Allah and federal holiness, that from the most beloved people to Allah, are the most benefit are the people who are of most benefit to the people who listen to this, the most beloved to Allah, are those who offer the most benefit to the people. The Hadees doesn't say to the Muslims, it says to the people, that those who are good to the people, we are the most beloved to Allah. But this doesn't mean my dear brothers and sisters that we start becoming soft with their beliefs, which Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't approve. I'm not saying that now, we or the message

00:27:09--> 00:27:24

that I'm sharing, that we should work together in that which Islam supports this, that nobody should now progress the discussion and say, Well, now I can I can be lenient with regards to ship. I can be lenient with regards to disbelief now, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:27:25--> 00:28:00

with wisdom, we should invite them towards the heat. And with wisdom, we should we should engage them in positive discussion, showing them that look, we support you in this because Islam supports it. But it doesn't mean that our support here is an endorsement for this belief. That has to be clear. Is that clear? My dear, my dear brothers and sisters, right? So nobody should, you know, it's important. We put everything in its place. Nobody should say well, they don't believe in Allah. So that means everything about them is bad. No, that is oppression. And nobody should say well, they do these good things and I will start being soft with a disbelief. That is oppression, that is

00:28:00--> 00:28:44

injustice to Allah subhanho wa Taala as well, we should be in the middle way, right upon the just way, upon the easy middle way. And that is by putting everything in his perspective. As I have described, we Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. The next lesson, my dear brothers and sisters that I will share is that from this boycott, we learned that people are of two types. People are of two types. Those who will pay attention to the science will be diligent to the science, and those who no matter what you show them no matter what you do, no matter what you say they will never change. You can say what you want, they will still draw pictures about the Prophet

00:28:44--> 00:29:00

sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a bad way. There is no sincerity they, this is who they are. The Quraysh Abu Talib went to them and said, Allah has revealed to my message to my nephew that that paper in the character has been eaten, except the words of Allah.

00:29:01--> 00:29:38

And I believe him if it's not true, why don't you open the doors and check if it's not true? I myself will hand over Mohammed to you. So Han Allah, look at that. And they open the caravan. And they saw the letter described as Abu Talib said, no one could see because the doors were shut. They open the seat just as Abu Talib said it would be and what happened they still went even deeper in disbelief. That sign never brought them closer to Allah never been benefited them or better than in any way. These are some lessons for this episode My dear brothers and sisters.

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

They always say Time flies when you having fun, and it flew today as well. be delighted to Allah tomorrow inshallah we will gather and complete this particular incident and take another major incident from the ciroc Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and analyze that as well. Insha Allah, I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, may Allah guide us in gender

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

As he has gathered us here in this machine today, amin was on a level with Santa Monica and Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
