smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala

00:00:15--> 00:00:24

nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira Catherine lamb Dean ameba Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:00:28--> 00:01:08

All praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Him we seek His forgiveness, and we seek his assistance and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds, who serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decreased guidance upon the non cannabis guidance and who serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon then men 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 besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger. I welcome you all my dear brothers and

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

sisters to episode number 20 Season Two plus from the past.

00:01:15--> 00:01:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala has taken us all the way up to

00:01:21--> 00:02:10

the point in the Sierra covering the first pledge of Alibaba. And over the past few episodes, we've been taking lessons from an upper back, we have a few to take, and then inshallah, we will move into the second pledge of a laptop. And once again, a gentle reminder, you must think of the hero with every discussion that takes place in these episodes. Because everything taking place in these episodes was a means of the hijra happening was the means of ease, falling onto the edge, there was a great ease my dear brothers and sisters, because we know that sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam went to Medina and went with him the Muslims, and they settled in Medina and Medina became,

00:02:10--> 00:02:46

we can say the capital of Islam, it became the home of Islam. And we know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam paired the Maha June with the answer, and finally they had family whilst in Mecca for all these years. They had family disowning them so understand the relevance of these pledges, the relevance of Mousavi been going to Medina, the relevance of the hour to the visiting tribes and the visiting individuals. From the lessons My dear brothers and sisters from the first aloka have played the first pledge of an alpha is

00:02:47--> 00:03:01

education is education and this is in particular with Muslim women or men. Or Viola Why? Because Mousavi mermaid was inspired in an Institute of Education. They are allowed allowed.

00:03:02--> 00:03:44

He was he was inspired in this place. This is where he went to see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this house was the first school in Islam, because this was the place where the Muslims gathered, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught them the new revelation that had come to him and taught them matters that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to teach. The educational establishment has a mighty presence in the realm and sphere of development, we must understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. And as the famous English saying goes, if you want to change one year, plant rice

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

and if you want to change 10 years,

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

plant trees.

00:03:51--> 00:04:09

But if you want to change 100 years, plant schools, good schools, very good schools, schools that develop the human being and nurture the unique potential that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives each human being

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

you know, sadly, the educational system today

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

cannot be called education, it can just be called schooling.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

I'm not gonna be steal your mind because that's oppression. We're

00:04:24--> 00:04:57

not saying we don't have good schools. But I'm trying to highlight that there's a difference between schooling and education. Education is a science. schooling is what we see today. Where we take a bunch of unique children, we put them in one class and the one curriculum with one teacher with one exam, and they must all come out the same. We don't allow them to nurture pending the unique criteria and and qualities that Allah gave them. No, we convert them.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

Those who are but up we bring them down in the

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

up or down, we bring them up, we make everyone at the same playing field and at the same level, and it's true, just look at the exam, everyone has to pass the same exam. It's the same questions, and everyone will be graded the same way. So it's a type of cloning process that schools do.

00:05:17--> 00:05:24

Education, on the other hand, will always be praiseworthy, because it's a praiseworthy science. And education is all about development.

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

Thus, we can say, schools are in need of more education. If we can say that, as a principle, based on what we've said.

00:05:34--> 00:05:59

The first school of Islam was the School of nurturing people's unique qualities that Allah created them with. And the fact is, Allah created every human being with a unique quality and unique ability. Some people are academic in nature. Some people are skillful with their hands, the more creative and abstract and they have abilities that the people of academia don't have.

00:06:00--> 00:06:23

This is a father that Allah gives to who he wants subhanho wa Taala. It's a unique gift that Allah gives to who he wishes and who he wants. We see some children at the age of two, you can teach them things, names of things, are the children, you can't, but you find that too, they use their hands better than the other child. So unique ability that Allah gave them.

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

Now, what do we do? Know, we say, how come this child that today is not doing what that child could do?

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

They must be a problem with this child.

00:06:34--> 00:06:46

Isn't this? Isn't this what happens brothers and sisters, we say no my firstborn, he was doing these things at two years old. The second point is not doing it left our poverty level, we need to find the good doctor.

00:06:48--> 00:06:53

Already now we we have given that we have done a diagnosis on the child that this child is is low.

00:06:54--> 00:07:01

The child is not slow. He's just unique in his ability to develop. And he has skills which you haven't understood, which your firstborn didn't have.

00:07:02--> 00:07:31

So Allah subhanho wa Taala made us and and this is common sense brothers and sisters, because we are communities, we are interdependent beings, if we all had the same skills, who would do the other stuff, right or wrong? Right, so allocates us uniquely, what we need to do is find that balance whereby we are able to ensure that the unique intrinsic qualities of the child continuously develop throughout the educational years.

00:07:32--> 00:07:52

So that they become stronger and stronger. And that unique ability, which Allah gave them, rather than hampering it, and making them feel inferior. I tell you, you know, schools nowadays, they batch you as well, we've got a batch, a B batch, a C batch, right? Or a red color, a blue color, a green color, you see the red colors with the clever people are.

00:07:54--> 00:08:02

This is what happens. This is the mentality that is taught. I know when I was in school, I used to look up the people in the later stages. I think these guys are not clever.

00:08:03--> 00:08:08

So Pamela, May Allah forgive me, I was young. I was within the system. And this is how the system was.

00:08:09--> 00:08:16

Even our parents, if you were in a B class, or B three before, especially the parents would be upset with you.

00:08:18--> 00:08:49

Because these classes wouldn't have some of the sciences that existed in the HTM classes, for example. Now, is it the child's fault? I mean, is this a way to judge children's futures? That you put them in a system where they feel inferior already? So now they're going through school already feeling inferior than the guys in the history? This is not fair. Right? This is the system that we have. And that's why I want to clearly differentiate between schooling and education, schooling and education. You know, in the later v streams, they used to teach them a subject called agriculture when I was in

00:08:50--> 00:09:08

agriculture, right? In the a stream, no agriculture, no, no, don't do agriculture. You do physics, chemistry, advanced mathematics, Latin, Latin, who knows Latin language, I don't even need this the first thing I forgot how to spend years studying, wasting time

00:09:10--> 00:09:29

doing something that I will not need, right? And then we should look at those guys in agriculture. You know, some lessons, they go into the guidance, the planting things, and we still feel these are the you know, they're not so clever people. But you know what, later on in life, I came to find out the farmers are the richest people Mashallah

00:09:30--> 00:09:45

the richer than the doctors and the pharmacists, and the lawyers and engineers have the dilemma. Right. So what I'm saying brothers and sisters, I mean, this is a topic in and of itself. By the way. I am happy to sit and rant about schools.

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

But we have a lot to take anyway. But I just want to put the point across my dear brothers and sisters and then the lesson that we're getting here is from Luke how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam developed his unique ability and the courage already saw his unique ability.

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

That this boy has that maturity. So they nurtured it by putting him as an observer in the House of Representatives. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asked, send us the first ambassador of Islam, he doesn't shy away from sending a 20 year old person, because he's seen that this boy has the uniqueness to the situation. Let's let him grow, go, send him into the world of hamdulillah will grant us the understanding. I mean,

00:10:29--> 00:11:05

my dear brothers and sisters from the lessons that we learn is, and this could be a follow up from this last lesson. And that's the importance of nurturing leaders. And I touched on this yesterday when I said that we shouldn't mother, our children, as fathers let the mother's mother hamdulillah there has to be balance in the home with the fathers are there to father the children to make them feel the weight of responsibility. And I touched on this, I think in the previous episodes, when I said Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to let them try and interpret dreams when he was alive. Let them try and deduce fake rulings when he was alive, making them feel responsibility,

00:11:05--> 00:11:17

allowing them to make mistakes in front of him. So he could correct them, there was no one better to correct them than him. Today, as parents, we so afraid to let our children try because we cannot handle them making a mistake.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

Yet we the most sincere people to correct them.

00:11:23--> 00:11:48

As if we want to leave them to make mistakes after the most sincere people in their lives pass away, and they will come up people who will not be bothered about them today, how many people brothers and sisters even correct. People will talk about your mistakes, but how many people write to you and tell you brother for the sake of Allah, this is a mistake. Perhaps reconsider how many people do that today. People will say you know what, I can't be bothered.

00:11:50--> 00:12:11

I can't be bothered. But this is his mistakes. Very few advisors today. And if we have advisors, very few sincere advisors, so you are the most sincere to your children. You are the most sincere community leaders in shaba, you have the most sincere parents, teachers, let the children feel the weight of responsibility.

00:12:12--> 00:12:26

Now, I'm not telling you to go on a holiday and let them manage the passports and the money Don't get me wrong. Someone will say no, no, she said we must let them feel the weight of responsibility. Now we went on holiday, we gave our 10 year old the passport and the money and he lost it now we stuck

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

start making do against me, please.

00:12:30--> 00:13:09

I'm not saying that. I'm saying let them feel a responsibility that's worthy of the age that they've reached. You know that even if they make mistakes in it, the consequences are not severe. But it's a tool of development for them. You as a parent should ensure that there are some responsibilities in the home. Let them manage some of these responsibilities. Take you know make the manager you are responsible. And show them that that trust I'm not going to tell you again, this is your responsibility. If it's not sorted out, I'm gonna ask you about it. Let them feel it. Let them make mistakes. This is how they grow. What does it kill you only makes you stronger. You know the

00:13:09--> 00:13:23

statement and the tragedy is not in making a mistake. The tragedy is not easy not learning from the mistake always remember this brothers and sisters. And as the Arabic saying goes that whoever is scared of falling will never stand

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

when half are super lemmya whoever scared of falling will never stand.

00:13:29--> 00:14:03

How do you want your children to stand if you're too scared of them falling. So let them feel the weight of responsibility that is appropriate to their status in terms of the life that they've lived the age that they've reached, and the environment that they've grown up in me Allah subhanho wa Taala practices understanding I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, from the lessons, and this is last but not least, is that we need inspirational community leaders. We need these Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an inspiration to the

00:14:04--> 00:14:22

inspiration first and foremost to the Sahaba he was an inspiration to most of you will remain. This man left this 20 year old boy left when he was less than 20. When he accepted his love He was 20 when he was sent. But this boy left financial standing material well being the latest clothing.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

So hon Allah, he left luxury he left is

00:14:30--> 00:14:49

for nothing. For nothing. What pushed him to do that inspiration, who inspired him Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this teaches us My dear brothers and sisters that you know today we say the youth, the youth, the youth, they live in this world to this point, this point this point we can still fix it. You've learned a spoiled boy and

00:14:51--> 00:14:56

he became an amazing individual. And by the way, I only shared with you a portion of his life.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Go and read about his life and the death of

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Gave him and how he died to Panama. He was honored.

00:15:05--> 00:15:33

He was honored, so spoiled youth can be fixed. What is the way to fix them? By being an inspirational father by being an inspirational mother? By being an inspirational man, by being an inspirational head of the masjid head of the organization be inspirational, and you will change people. We learn from this that human beings can be inspired and inspired people do something which many think is impossible.

00:15:35--> 00:16:11

And if you don't believe me, Go read the story of Mr. Economy once more, or at least visit the episode that we discussed him in. As I said, he was spoiled. But Subhana Allah, he was inspired. He left everything you and I would say a spoiled youth will never leave. What did he leave it for? La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire the presence of many Muslims in the Ameen hour today and our tomorrow We ask Allah to grant us a plethora of them. Because indeed when this overseas many Muslims we will see quantum change with Malaysia.

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

And once again, I want to reiterate

00:16:15--> 00:16:37

not out of overpraising but out of stating facts. Interacting Mashallah with the stuff and musty aroma. I have seen a great desire to bring the youth back to the masjid This is the place where inspiration begins. We're talking about institution, educational institutions and establishments. The biggest and greatest educational establishment is domestics

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

and I'm going to touch on this in season three inshallah class from the past when we talk about machines.

00:16:44--> 00:16:52

And the first action of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he goes to Medina, perhaps now you inspired to wait for the live links from next year insha Allah,

00:16:54--> 00:17:26

so Masha Allah, this question has a sincere desire. And my message to the parents here. My message to the mothers and fathers here is to visit the masjid staff and ask them, What do you want to do? What do you intend doing? And how can we help get involved? Get involved, this is how you become inspirational as well, by working together by working together. I've already been mentioned in brother Rogers named Dr. Dean, how many episodes I'm sure when people start watching these DVDs, they're gonna say we have to go to machine number just to meet this man.

00:17:28--> 00:17:57

But here he is. Speak to him. He's been mentioning to me a lot of ideas. And I think they are good ideas. I think they are revolutionary ideas. Get involved, visit him, ask him how can I help my dear brothers and sisters, don't pass away, except that you've left that oma, that will do those deeds that will allow you to benefit in your grave. Because one of the ways we benefit in our graves is by teaching people good things that they practice after we die.

00:17:58--> 00:18:36

So be involved in that. Even if you sponsor financial, even if you volunteer as if you step into the process, I don't like to use the word volunteer, I like to call it investor. Because we have done something for law you invest, you give some time, some money Allah gives you times 10 as a minimum, and the maximum as Allah wishes lavaca that's an investment. Right? When you give something and get more, it's not a sacrifice. It's an investment. That's why I don't like the term volunteer for Islamic organizations who say we want volunteers volunteers volunteer has this correlation to sacrifice, as if we're giving something and getting nothing back. No, the reality is you're getting

00:18:36--> 00:19:20

more than you giving. That's investment. investment with Allah. So come and be an investor with your wealth. Be an investor with yourself. And you will see the importance of this when we discussed the second page of Alibaba and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So these are some of the points My dear brothers and sisters from this first pledge of Alaska. And with that, we come to the second year of Alaska. And this takes us swiftly to the 13th year after his arrival in the 13th year after he arrived the next year during the pilgrimage season. 70 or more. Muslims came from Medina and we know that even the non Muslims to go for Hajj even though they were polytheists. This Hajj aspects

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

from the religion of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam existed in their lives people used to come to the Hajj. Yes, it was a Hydra ship. They had shaken della bake their chicken in the rituals of hedge but the bottom line is they were practicing the heck so people came for hedge from this group there were 70 or more from the Muslims who came for the hedge. And one of the common questions and repeated questions that these Muslims had. Amongst them was people people people. This is paraphrasing Of course they were saying people isn't it Hi time we protect Mohammed from Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

While he was alive, instead of leaving him to this courage we've been here we've become Muslims we in year three

00:20:08--> 00:20:26

from last Hajj to this hedge, which is hearing him being persecuted, now we making the trip, isn't it high time we look after him, we protect him from this we've believed in him. This can be beneficial. I'm paraphrasing, of course, but these are this is this is logical deductions right?

00:20:27--> 00:21:05

You know people have character. They don't want titles for show. You know today we have people who are titles for sure they have titles is for sure. You say this person. He's the he's got these a director, which doesn't do anything. We just want his name attached to our program. So director, he doesn't do anything. This is a title for show. These were not Muslims for show that Luke was believed in the man. Let's act on this belief. If we believed in him and he's a prophet of Allah isn't the most beloved thing to Allah that we defend him we support him, isn't it time brothers and sisters, that we stopped leaving him forsaken to the operation and the harm in the operation? This

00:21:05--> 00:21:47

was a common discussion between them. So when they came for the Hajj, they made the COVID plan a secret plan because obviously they were in a group of 10 Muslims as well. Sensitive situation. Croatia they already warning everybody about Mohammed situation is dire. So they make a COVID plan. Secret messaging Subhan Allah you know today we can secret message with our phones. How is it that Allah knows best with secret messaging was being spread the rendezvous point, we need to meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In any case, what they decided to do was to meet him at night. During the mid tertiary days, we know the days of tertiary are the 11th and the 12th and the

00:21:47--> 00:22:27

13th of the tertiary right, which refers to slaughtered meat, which is left in the sun to dry and we know that on read we slaughter right so these days, when the animals are being cleaned and the meat was being purified and so on and so forth. This is known as tertiary these are known as the days of tertiary, right? So they agreed to be Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah Kabbalah Kabbalah is situated here by Mina, secretly if we look in the sera books, it actually says that people were coming in ones and twos. Some people were sneaking to the meeting place in ones some people were sneaking in twos you can only imagine. You know, one guy peeps, okay, it's clear coast is clear.

00:22:27--> 00:22:44

Next guy walks past right COVID operation until they meet at a place and then comes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Imagine this amazing moment, right? Because they were accepting Islam at the hand of Musab. Now they see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the flesh.

00:22:45--> 00:22:51

Rasulullah comes with who he comes with his uncle. He comes with his uncle Allah best.

00:22:52--> 00:23:34

Now his uncle was in a Muslim den. And his uncle didn't come for the contents of the pledge. His uncle came as protection for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as you will see. Now, in terms of how many people gathered here, some of the books say 70, some say 73 plus two women, right? So there's a slight difference in the count, but this is not strange, because at that time, statistics was not important as statistics are now these approximates right. So some say they were 70. Some say they were 73 plus two females, Mashallah, you see, the females always had the presence from the beginning of Islam, and hamdulillah. So, what happened? They met with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

wasallam. And

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

the uncle of the Prophet, this Allah Beth's

00:23:41--> 00:24:24

the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he speaks out and he says, oh, people of the Hazara. And when the Quran would say this, they were referring to the hustle agenda and the hours, right, all people have the hustle Raj, you all know the position that Mohammed holds amongst us. And you have all seen how we have protected him from our our people from his own people. And he refuses to join any party except you. So kind of law. Right, alabaster is addressing the Hassan. So if you think you can carry out what you promise whilst inviting him to your own town, and you can defend him against his enemies, then assume the big burden that you have taken. Meaning This is a test is

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

not going to be a walk in the park. Understand what you're getting yourself into. You better be in this for the long run. You better fasten your seat belts, great turbulence ahead, right, the plane is going to rattle make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. None of this business where you have you know hype. You know when you shake the coke bottle, what happens gases up? You get some of the youth like that to the hype. Yeah, I'll do it. I'll do it. They get involved. The CEO is too big a task for me to give up.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

They give up what happened I've given up. You've given up the program is shutting down. I can't do it, get somebody else. So alibis is making it clear

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

I hear I understand what you're getting into, you're in this for the long run here. There's no backing off. You don't take him to Medina and desert him.

00:25:08--> 00:25:20

He's making it clear to them. Right? And then he says, and if you are going to surrender and give up and betray him after taking him away with you, you better leave him now, because he is respected and well defended. He has

00:25:22--> 00:25:57

amazing words of defense for life. Amazing words. So he was one of the persons present, he replies and says, We have heard your words. Look at the speech. These are not speech of Play, play brothers and sisters, this is business. This is the real business the real deal, right? The real deal. He says, We have heard your words. And now it's time for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to speak, and take from us the pledge that you want, regarding Allah, your Lord, and our Lord. And regarding yourself. Do you wish you could be a fly on the wall observing this, isn't it?

00:25:58--> 00:26:13

It's like the scene is taking place. And you're just there, watching how it's happening. It's inspirational, alive. I mean, it was a definite stance of support the fact that he's saying, We have heard what you've said, Now is his time sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to speak up. They didn't say, what do you think?

00:26:15--> 00:26:35

They said, No, it's time for you to take the pledge. What are they saying? There's no need for this discussion. We are in it to be in it. We're not backing out. This is the way of the answer. And we see this every battle when they don't the armor for battle. That armor never came out came off until the battle was over.

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

This was not like the followers of Noosa. When Allah said go and get Palestine go and take these tyrants out of the land. They said no, no, no.

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

You and your Lord go and fight we sitting here.

00:26:52--> 00:27:06

This is the people of Lucia with the people of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. No, no, they say, if you tell us to go, if Allah tells us to go, let's go because we are not going to abandon you. These were the unsolved.

00:27:07--> 00:27:12

Can't now I can't even wait now for season three. Because season three is a lot about the answer.

00:27:14--> 00:27:57

So there was this courage and determination that was put forth and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then announced the pledge or the details of the pledge. What were these details, number one, to listen and obey in all circumstances, respect, the respect the leader. This is the amine. You can have us at the end of the day when the mill takes a decision. A center our pa we have heard and we obey. We don't cause fitna we don't cause fitna is the lesson especially today. Right? What happens today, when the meal, you don't agree with him, you go open another machine. Amir, you don't agree with him, we open another madrasa, another class, another institution. This is the plague of today.

00:27:57--> 00:28:27

Look at this pledge. You don't disobey the enemy number one. Number two, you will spend when you have and you will spend when you have little, you will spend when you have a lot and you will spend when you have a little number three, you will enjoy good, enjoying good. You will enjoy and good and you will forbid evil, you will invite towards good and you will warn against evil. Number four in our service. You will not see anybody

00:28:28--> 00:28:41

in this in this in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will not see anybody, no one is allowed to run away from the battlefield. Right? What is the next clause that you defend Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he seeks you out,

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

and you protect him

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

as you protect yourselves, and as you protect your wives and as you protect your children. And if you look after the clauses in this covenant, you will enter Paradise. La ilaha illa Allah

00:28:58--> 00:29:32

My dear brothers and sisters, what a mighty event that happened in our history. We need to read our history. We need to ponder of our history. It's inspiration of Allah He you don't need me to come all the way to Malaysia to inspire you know Mashallah is a blessing from Allah Allah. He is not the best person to be teaching you. But I thank you for your generosity in saying a lot of Mashallah. You encouraged me you say well, ah, he's inspirational. Allah, he's not me. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is inspirational. Allah is not me. It's the life of the man that I'm teaching you the inspirational man.

00:29:33--> 00:29:48

That inspirational. You don't need speakers to come here to inspire you. Just pick up the Quran. Pick up the see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, sit with your local scholars and you will be inspired my dear brothers and sisters, you will be inspired.

00:29:50--> 00:30:00

Don't enter this play where you belittle your local scholars, and you flocked to the visiting scholars, my dear brothers and sisters flocked to the visiting scholars, but

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

flock even more to your local scholars, they are inspirational. They live amongst you and amongst you. Don't disrespect them. Be there. keep them busy. Ask them. I'm not saying read the Quran and take your own understanding.

00:30:13--> 00:30:43

But know, read the Quran and go to your chef, go to your scholar ask him what does this mean? Have I understood correctly? And when you understand correctly, ask yourself in the least, how do I benchmark against this I in the Quran? Where am I from it? Where am I from its instructions. What is my inspirational level from the inspirational setting and this is, this is who we are my dear brothers and sisters, we are inspired by the Quran and the Sunnah. We are a nation of inspiration.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

We don't have to be flocking

00:30:52--> 00:30:55

in a scene that I call the celebrity fan culture

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

that has especially entered the doubt because you know,

00:31:00--> 00:31:09

the norm is whoever we watch on TV, we become a fan. And now in the age of YouTube's everyone's watching YouTube, so you see a single person on TV, you become a fan.

00:31:10--> 00:31:50

So the chef's who have the ability to put things on TV, they will get the following. And the more lead perhaps the more pious we Allah forgive us all, that are reading books, and are busy with books and busy with teaching, and they never had the opportunity to get their stuff on YouTube. When they come, we don't go to them because the name is not known. We don't know them by Allah, a person being famously known was not a prerequisite and requirement to seek knowledge. The prerequisite and requirement to seek knowledge was going to a knowledgeable person. If someone reputable tells you this is a knowledgeable person, go seek knowledge. Don't sit at home and say, You know what? I don't

00:31:50--> 00:31:57

know him. These are known who's coming to this conference. The speaker the speaker, the speaker No, I don't know them.

00:31:59--> 00:32:34

What's wrong with you, brother and sister. This conference is teaching you the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that's what's being taught Don't you love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, are you going for a person? Are you going for Mohammed for the sake of Allah and your love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this person is coming to teach you something from him. The closest thing you and I have to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his teachings. Someone is coming to teach you about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teach you about what he taught and you are not going because you don't know the person isn't? Isn't it enough to know that

00:32:34--> 00:32:39

this person is knowledgeable and reputable about what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind?

00:32:41--> 00:32:43

Me Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us

00:32:45--> 00:33:28

and fix our paradigms. I mean, moving on very quickly, my dear brothers and sisters as an even surah remember this name this name keeps popping up. He was from the sixth that accepted Islam. He was the handler of Musa people are male in his house, the first Juma happened. This is Aurora stands up after the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cites the citations of the pledge. And he says take it easy people relax. understand one thing before you start touching the hand of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam confirming this plan. Take it easy do people have yesterday we have not covered that long distance, except because we have deep belief that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:33:28--> 00:34:13

wasallam is the Messenger of Allah. We already convinced that following him entails departure from the pagan Arabs, even if it were at the risk of our life. We have understood this is making it clear. Should you preserve in this course, hold steadfast on to it. And your greatest your greatest reward is placed. He says your great rewards are placed in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is addressing these people. And then he says but if you are caught in fear, I admonish you to give up right now. Don't do something you will regret. Don't put yourself in a bigger quandary. Don't create a situation which will not just harm you but will harm the Muslims as as a whole.

00:34:14--> 00:34:17

If you are not going to follow through, you better give up right now.

00:34:18--> 00:34:29

You better give up right now and then you would be more excusable by law. Yes. If you don't take the pledge, you are definitely more excused. But if you commit and you give up.

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

Now it's dangerous. So this is what Aurora said. It is also said My dear brothers and sisters and this is the last thing that I will say before we end this time for them now that some of these giants have said that by Allah. They said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the one who sent you. We are powerful. We are powerful enough to put the people of Mina meaning the parade to our swords tomorrow, so panela this pledge is taking place where in secret

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

When at night, look what they say that oh prophet of Allah, nevermind that we've done the pledge we telling you now We ready tomorrow Allahu Akbar. We will hit it tomorrow. We are people of action. We've done the pledge tomorrow we will put our souls on the necks of the Quraysh Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, go back. Go back and leave this for Allah didn't command us to do this. This is what he said. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam ponder My dear brothers and sisters tomorrow inshallah life Allah gives us life, we will discuss the lessons that we can deduce from the second pledge at Alibaba. The second pledge is known as the pledge of support,

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

and the pledge of defense. The first pledge was a pledge

00:35:44--> 00:36:18

with matters of religion, protection of religion. Now we have a pledge of support and protection of life and protection of religion. ponder over this, my dear brothers and sisters, may Allah bless these words, and we Allah bless you all, will not forgive us all. I mean, we all accept our rabada and make us from amongst those that witnessed a little cutter I mean, yangban I mean, I sincerely Love you all for the sake of Allah until Allah brings us together again. So Pamela will become the satanic alohomora we have the Ganesha to Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to boulais was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
