Right here his brothers and sisters in Islam Salaam, Allah here are a comb or two who made the Peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah be upon you all, yet another Friday. And yet another day in which we are observing Salah to our massage, it closed, what seems like a lifetime ago, and we have no idea when our massage it will reopen. Ramadan is in front of us. job security continues to become
lower and lower in terms of the confidence amongst the people of the community. And we look at the situation. And we think so Pamela, when is this going to end? Can we actually say that we seeing light at the end of the tunnel? Can we actually say that the heart the cup is half full. And this is a reality. And you wouldn't blame some people for feeling this way. But we would remind people to the hotel that we shared or the lecture that we shared last week, about positivity and never losing hope and finding the opportunity to build agenda amidst every obstacle that life throws at us. And to cut in continuing with that theme. Brothers and sisters in Islam. I want to take you all to the
sixth year of the hatred of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam last year, I took you two moments before the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and moments during the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today I want to take you to the sixth year of the hedgerow. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a dream. He saw himself doing tawaf around the Kaaba Subhana Allah, with him with the Muslims. So Pamela, no doubt this was something amazing for him, for he longed for Mecca, and he knew that the Sahaba to longed for Mecca. And remember, Mecca was made the caliber of the Muslim so they were always facing Mecca. So throughout
the days throughout the weeks throughout the month throughout the years, this love for America grew and grew and grew and was now overflowing and no doubt there was this sincere desire to go to Mecca and circumambulate the caravan to observe the power around the
Kava, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately he made moves to act on this beautiful dream, he saw this as a sign and he gathered 1400 Sahaba. And they made the intention for Amara, and they marched towards Mecca through the normal route known as attending ame.
Now Subhan, Allah, the Quran heard about this. And let's not forget that prior to this, the Muslims had three encounters with the Polish, there were three encounters with the Quran prior to this during the Battle of better. And during the Battle of Orford, and during the Battle of the trench, a battle never took place. But it's termed as a battle, the Battle of the trench or the Battle of 100. So these were three meetings that the Muslims had with the parish. And these meetings were not pleasant in any way, shape, or form. The Muslims now are making their way for Amara, they're not carrying weapons, they are not armed, they have with them, the candles the animals that they will
use to feed themselves and army are not an army, but a group of pilgrims now of 1400. Muslims required substantial amount of food, so they brought those animals that they would slaughter and cook and feed the pilgrims together on their long journey from Mecca to Medina. Along with this, they had other animals with them. And later on, as we will see, these animals became the fifth year, the fifth year that is paid or sacrificed when a person can make it to Makkah, especially after they were done. They have entered the state of Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took the usual route, and he comes to find out that Subhana Allah, and this is historical, and we are living
through historical times brothers and sisters in Islam with this Coronavirus. This was also historical for the Muslims, that Subhana Allah who proactively sending an army they sending an army of 200 fighters with hardly been willing to block us from entering Mecca. We're not we've not come from war. We've come for Amara, and they are sending fighters to block pilgrims coming for the Roma. This was unheard of the Quraysh were facilitators of the Amara. The Quraysh was the facilitators of Hajj, they were proud that they had this responsibility. And we're known with this title that they carried the title of being the facilitators of Amara and hedge and the pilgrims, and so on and so
forth. And these very same people we're about to do something unprecedented and that is blocked the Muslims from coming for Amara, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam decided to avoid any battle because they came from Morocco they were they were wearing the clothes of your home, they didn't have any weapons with them. This was not a battle. This was a journey of Amara, and he shifted the route from him to alpha dB.
This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did to further make clear that there is no wrong intentions here all we want to do is observe the camera and secondly, the camera.
Upon this, the Quraysh decided to send urban Mr. Wood to meet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our beloved Prophet, and the Muslims. And when he makes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was, he was taken aback. He was overwhelmed by the love that he saw the Sahaba having for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was overwhelmed by the humanity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite having all this love, and all this attention from the Sahaba from the Allahu anhu, Merchant Marine. And then he went back to the Qureshi. And he says, You know what, I have seen the kings of Persia and Rome. I've seen them and how they behave, and I've seen how their
subordinates behave. I've never seen anything like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his people, they seem like good people, we should let them in. And we should let them do their ombre, we should not disturb them. But the leaders of the operation, they were stubborn, as always, as usual, even though they lost many of the greats during better, right. But those that took their place, continued the legacy, right, of being stubborn. And they said, No, we will not allow the Muslims to come in. So what did they What did they do? They set aside and they sent another of the chief negotiators known as to hate even ama now so he later became a Muslim or a viola one. So Haley ban
hammer at the time wasn't a Muslim dichotomy, at the time wasn't a Muslim, and he was a strong negotiator. And he went to davia to negotiate the terms of how things would move forward. And listen carefully. Brothers and sisters in Islam, we're talking about a situation where the Muslims have always felt that the situation has always been on the back burner, right that circumstances around them either
dictating where they can go and what they can do. They wanted to go to Macau. We're not talking about a year we're talking about years. And finally they get the chance and an unprecedented move is happening in their mind. There is no way we are going back in their mind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the dream, in their mind, our wish of yours that's flowing in our hearts and our chest is going to become true. our emotions are on edge because of the sincere love, we have to see the garba we are going to get there, despite what the police do. Right? This is what the situation was. And prior to this brothers and sisters in Islam, just to add some completion to the
story, when the Quran refused to listen to Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent,
he sent a threadedly affirm, to go and help convince the Quran because of Medina rhodiola why he had connections in Mecca. But when Simon got into Mecca, they detained him. And then rumors were sent out that what that was man was killed. And he had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam immediately decided that we need to avenge the blood of watchmen, we will go to battle without weapons, and immediately 1400 Sahaba rushed to grab his hand and show their pledge of allegiance. So Panama, then without weapons, once we have, we are with you on messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah. Indeed, Allah was pleased with the Muslims, when they pledge their allegiance to the
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, under the tree, I began this Hooda mentioning this area, how Allah mentions how proud and happy he was of this Sahaba and before this, I started this quote by an Arabic praising Allah subhanho wa Taala for making this oma a lanton of guidance. manorbier houda work with the bottom side and, and to make
this oma, a righteous leadership for people to take guidance from now and for people who will come after to take guidance from so Pamela that's why we're having this discussion at this difficult time. The moments with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the moments with him and the Sahaba. So we can see Subhana Allah, that they too, were under a form of siege, but how did they behave? They will human beings, they have emotions, right? So imagine it's going from from good to bad from bad to worse. Now they're pledging allegiance to fight violence in a harem. And we know in your home, you don't fight but this was a circumstance beyond anyone's control. We've been hearing
the word unprecedented several times during the past few weeks for the Muslims with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This was unprecedented, right? The Quraysh when they heard that Suhana la these 1400 Muslims without weapons without body armor, they pledging allegiance to the messenger, they said we need to calm the situation down, we need to defuse the situation. Why? Because what will happen if the news goes out and people start hearing that the Croatia fighting pilgrims, we will become the enemy not just to the Muslims, but to many, many other people plus, we will lose our reputation, right this reputation that has been a means of us having the financial standing that we
have the material well being that we have the honor that we have. So, immediately the Quraysh sense highly been honored to defuse the situation to have a quick negotiation and then for the terms to be discussed terms by which things will move forward. And so he was a master negotiator. He comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they sit down and they negotiate and the Sahaba are listening in. And the following five points are agreed to number one, there will be a ceasefire between the Muslims and the koresh normal warfare for a period of 10 years.
Number two, any person in tribe, any person in tribe can now enter into an agreement with the Muslims. And any person and tribe can enter into an agreement with the parish. And these agreements shouldn't mean that now we have a situation of having a friend or a foe, everyone is free to sign up more Memorandum of agreements if we can call them that mo use with any tribal any person. Okay, number three. Now, listen to this. The first two seems okay. seems bad. It seems fair. No problem. What does number three say? Number Three says if anyone from Makkah goes to Medina to settle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has to send them back to me. But if anyone from Medina leaves
Medina and goes to Mecca,
the courage don't have to send him back. He can stay with them.
Is this fair or unfair?
Right, right to the naked eye, without vision, this is unfair. This is a bad deal. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agrees. Number four. Listen to this one. If a young person leaves his parents and goes to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Without his guardians or her guardians permission, he or her, he or she has to be sent back to Mk. But if anyone from Medina goes to Mecca without the permission of his or her guardian, they can remain safely in Mecca. They don't have to be sent back to the naked eye. This seems unfair. This is a real deal. This is a bad deal. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agrees now imagine the Sahaba listening in the human beings like
you and me, right? They were feeling what they were feeling. Number five, and this was the killer below, if we can call it that. No Amara this year. However, next year, you can come back for three days with the Muslims and perform Amara will give you three days in Mecca. But next year, not this year.
So Han Allah. This was heavy brothers and sisters in Islam.
For the Sahaba this was
for people wishing for the karma for several years. This was
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agrees
he agrees Salalah alayhi wa sallam. Now brothers and sisters in Islam.
What we see happening at that time is really a lesson for the rest of time.
That life will always picture circumstances and situations
that we with our naked eye will see as a bad deal.
little Do we know there's a goodness in that deal as well.
As a good decision that deal as well. And I'm echoing what I shared with you last week.
And I always give this example
of hailstones that fall down
and smash the windscreens of cars.
Right. This is a rare event. Every day people drive the cars they come back safely. The cars are intact. The windscreens are intact. There is a person who sells windscreens every day he's trying to sell but he can't sell Why? Because people really don't need windscreens every day there's we don't have a high demand for windscreens every day. The guy who sells windscreens his patient is patient. And every day those who have cars who go home safely, they are thankful to Allah.
Right? We are thankful.
But one day hailstones fall down and the windscreens gets smashed. And the car drivers come out and they say La La quwata illa Billah. This is bad what has happened. But somewhere in there we have the windscreen Salah who say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Today I can sell my
DC brothers and sisters in Islam.
Do you see this? This is phenomena. This is the reality. And this is the belief of Allah student, our Gemma. The belief of Allison our Gemma is that there's no complete evil. Everything that Allah allows to happen is not evil. In completion. You might see it from an angle as a raw deal, but from another angle. It's amazing. Right? Because the day hailstones fell, it was amazing for the windscreen Salah to build his Jenner by being thankful to Allah whilst every day he had to be patient. And for the car owner, every day they could be gender being thankful today they have a chance to build gender being patient.
And this was the reality brothers and sisters of davia this was the reality for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, after green, he told us to have come out of your harem, shave your heads, slaughter your animals, and no body moved. So when Allah
Subhana Allah, but just before 1400 rushing to shake his hand
when it was to pledge allegiance to us going to avenge the blood of was man if it was proven that he was killed.
They were forced the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they were full of light in his lawsuit, but they were human beings, this situation froze them.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was surprised
He goes into his tent, and he tells on selama of his feelings about what just happened. And I'm selama said O Messenger of Allah, they just upset the human beings they feel what they feel they're sad. They shocked the what's happened. But you come out of your home and walk out and you see them following you. And that's what it is sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when they saw the messenger as they saw him immediately they follow through on the Allah
Subhana Allah. Another point is when this deal was signed brothers and sisters in Islam, so halal son, abou Jana, he was in shackles in Makkah, because he was prevented from going to Medina. He manages to get out to her baby and present himself to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with all his torture marks,
and the Sahaba seeing him shackled, tied, crying, begging Take me back with you to Medina, take me back with you to Medina. He's begging Look what they doing to me. Look what my father is doing to me. And the father of Abu Jana Sohail immediately says, this is going to be the first implementation of the treaty that we signed. Remember we said any child who goes to Medina without the permission of his father has to stay back or be returned back. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the boo, boo Jana, be patient, be patient, continue building gender through patience.
We have to honor the deal. We have to honor the contract. Right? So brothers and sisters in Islam, you might be looking at the situation with Corona using one lens. Right? You might be listening to this story of who davia and thinking this doesn't sound like a good deal using one lens. But let's see what happened after. So Pamela, because after this deal was signed for the first time ever,
Medina was recognized as a place that hosted Islam, and the capital of the Muslim country. For the first time Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam was recognized by the Quraysh as a legitimate leader. As a result of this, they could practice doing moontower easily without opposition. And now they could spread the message of Islam further and far and wide to other lands. halala because of the streets without this treaty, this was something extremely difficult. Now with this treaty, La ilaha illAllah is spreading some kind of law. Because of this treaty, many, many more people became Muslims. When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam signed the treaty, there was 1400 people with
him. The next year when they went back for Amara for the three days that was part of the plan 2000 Sahaba accompanied him sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
A year before we were upset, a year later we saying takbeer Allahu Akbar Subhana Allah. If we only knew that we'd have 500 we'd have 600 more Muslims. Of course, we wouldn't have been upset if we only knew how easy it would be to spread Islam. Of course, we wouldn't have been upset. But that's the thing. And hindsight is an amazing thing. Right? It's all about hindsight now, right? So if we see things with local lens brothers and sisters in Islam without foresight, we caused our situation to become even more difficult because of this treaty brothers and sisters in Islam. The new Muslims who didn't want to go back to Mecca because of the deal, they couldn't stay in Medina but they
didn't want to go to Mecca. They started setting up little places in between Mecca and Medina. And they started becoming a hinderance for the caravans of the kurush such that the police became tired of them. And the operation requested the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to amend the deal, to cancel that deal to amend it to allow the Muslims to stay in Medina if they didn't want to come back to mK subhanho wa, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did it. Right. So who was winning at the end? All this was a win for the Muslims. In fact, the greatest win came as a result of the Treaty of Arabia, and that is maccha becoming a Muslim land before the end of the life of the
Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam no one could have seen this at the time of Arabia when
it seemed like the Muslims were getting a bad deal. In fact, it was it seems so bad that when so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was signing it and he said, the Messenger of Allah Sohail said no, not the Messenger of Allah. Right, Mohammed Abdullah.
We don't recognize Allah. Right. You're Mohammed the son of Abdullah. At that time, imagine what you'd feel. But Subhan Allah, Allah knows. Allah has the full picture. You and I we just have pixels.
Brothers and sisters in Israel, Corona is a pixel. Being stuck at home in isolation is a pixel.
Right? That's what it is not being allowed out. And having the freedom to go out is a pixel, our flights being cancelled is a pixel, you might have lost money, because we booked some holidays is a pixel, we only have pixels. But we have to keep on gathering those pixels. And together those pixels, we have to be patient. And when we put the pixels together, we'll see the bigger picture and see so how long was the plan that Allah had for us. But if you're going to sit right now and look at a pixel and try and understand the picture, you're going to fail and your car is going to use that against you and make you lose hope and make you feel sad and make you feeling a loss. The 1000
pounds you lost because you were supposed to come from camera that you can't that you might not be able to get back you're going to see that 1000 pounds as a 10,000 pound loss. But if you Be patient and gather pixels, tomorrow, you'll see that 1000 pound as a 10,000 pound gain. And this is the trust we have in Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the way of the believers. As I said, the Treaty of who davia was the preamble of Makkah becoming a Muslim. Why? Because of that treaty and something that happened that caused the treaty to be broken. That led to the Muslims having precedence to go to Macau and take over MCC and that is where brothers and sisters in Islam. Even though from the
outset the Sahaba felt like it was a loss of Allah describes the Treaty of Westphalia. Allah describes the Treaty of her davia by saying in like a term Rubina that we have opened for you on messenger great opening. Right? If you and I were there, and we heard this verse, we be a confused, who is the great opening. It doesn't look like a good deal. Here. We are going back without even having done Aurora and we had to leave or go to Jana and we have to send the Muslims to Mecca. And we can't keep the Muslims who come from Mecca. But Allah called all this a great opening in Africa, Medina, Allah call it a great opening and indeed it was a great opening for eventually Mecca became
Muslim and under control of the Muslims till today until the day of Tama, La Ilaha Illa. Allah He will be left he went to LA he was a great opening my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam, and this is what we need from the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at this unprecedented time when the masajid are closed when Mecca is is closed off. We heard recently that Mecca is under 24 hour curfew, no one can leave their homes Martinez under 24 hour curfew, no one can leave the home so good reasons. Of course there's no oppression. This is for the sake of preservation of life. But we hearing all these things of handle law. We heard about the death toll in the UK yesterday climbing
we hearing some hammer love our Muslim brothers and sisters passing away doctors in the front line from the Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam who are passing away we're hearing and we're hearing and we're hearing you and I have to remain focused You and I have to have basura de basura the foresight of the Quran and the Sunnah, the foresight of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with us today in the 21st century. So it guides us accordingly. It guides us appropriately. And remember brothers and sisters in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has passed on but he left to those two things, if we hold steadfast on to them both will never ever go astray. The
Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and part of his Sunnah is his Syrah, right, or those things that took place during his life. So this is the message for today brothers and sisters in Islam, we have pixels, but we don't have the big picture. Indeed, the big picture is with Allah and by Allah whatever Allah does, he does good. We have to keep on telling ourselves that repeating it to ourselves, no matter how difficult things are, keep on repeating whatever Allah does, he does good. Whatever Allah does, he does good wherever Allah does, he does good. I might not know it now, but I will come to know it sooner or later. This
is the lesson for today, my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam. Before we end, brothers and sisters in Islam, it is Friday, the best day upon which the sun rises as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hadith of ob hora de La Hoya in such a Muslim of
Allah He Shams Yama Juma fee per item or fee with the halal genda or fee Amina.
Yummy Juma that the best day upon which the sun rises is the day of Juma on this day Allah created Adam on this day he entered him into gender on this day he removed him from gender and the coming of the hour will not happen except on the day of Juma. This is the best day of the week. This is the deal of it for the believers. Yes, we don't have drama.
Yes, we don't have the hookah but it still remains. This is our day. Don't forget, there is an hour on this day during this day in which if a Muslim raises his hands and asked him Allah subhanahu wa Tada, Allah will not let that go and answered so use this day while brothers and sisters in Islam engage Allah in the last hour before Juma ends before the day of Juma ends an hour before Muslim Central your phone switch off from the world switcher from social media turned to Allah, turn to Allah and asked from Allah and use these moments use these moments, brothers and sisters in Islam, for these moments, especially during periods of difficulty are massive bonus rounds in terms of the
happiness of our life in this world. And the next Also don't forget to read Sudoku.
And don't forget to increase sending salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik
