I greet you with the greetings of Islam and peace. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh made the peace and a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah be upon you all, and I welcome you all to another episode of blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century. Of course, this is our season four, and today's episode is episode number 21. ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept our efforts, our attendance, our learning, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to increase our knowledge and to make us a people that he is a good word, and
follows it. I mean, you're a bad I mean, now yesterday, brothers and sisters in Islam Alhamdulillah we
lessons from the latest edition in terms of the latest segment of the Sierra that we Alhamdulillah discussed and that was
lessons after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam expedition to
to high bar and then also after that, we went into the next segment of the Sierra and that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
compensation, Mary, compensation, Mary, ombre
and hamdullah we discuss the events surrounding this Amara, we discussed so Pamela how unique things must have been
and how it was for the believers and also how it was for the Quraysh and the Arabs witnessing this particular ombre. And we stopped at the point whereby it came a time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had to leave Makkah because his time was up. And we promise that insha Allah, we shall discuss the lessons from this trip. And also some highlights from this particular trip, as we always do in terms of the lessons brothers and sisters in Islam.
I've been very quickly this camera, no doubt showed the prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because we can't forget the dream that he had a year before. And remember he said to me,
he said to him that you will do top of the Kaaba, but I didn't tell you when I told you you will do to off of the Kaaba, but I didn't tell you when and eventually it came true. And it happened also from the lessons brothers and sisters in Islam. And by the way, we said that this whole concept of
you know, these matters that teach us about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is known as della il and Luba. right these are from the signs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam being the Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala also brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn about
how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings victory to the believers at the end. Now very quickly if I can just ask our brothers and sisters on if on YouTube, if you guys can see clearly
if it's possible to just let me know that the picture the feed is coming to you clearly and the audio is coming to you clearly.
jackal O'Hara if you could just let me know in the chat that will be great because
I haven't managed to confirm that on my end. So if you are watching and things are clear on your end, I can see viewers having tuned in but if quickly if you could just confirm with me on the chat that you can see the feed clearly and you can also hear the audio clearly that will be great. barakallahu li thank you for for your for your reply. Is the video feed clear as well.
shyla and fara and everyone who's with us, can you please confirm that the video feed is also clear?
Alright, just come over here and
I have confirmation of the audio feed. I'm just waiting for confirmation regarding the video feed. Okay, excellent. So that's excellent. Thank you so much for that. So you did seem you're looking right and left is because we
you know, this lesson is going on going on to multiple platforms. And it's a one man show. Right? So I need to also while some teaching and thinking of what to say I'm trying to make sure that everybody
is can hear me on Twitter, on the to Facebook pages on the YouTube page, and also in clubhouse and have the ledgers icon located for that confirmation. So the second lesson brothers and sisters in Islam from this whole camera to cover or this compensation at your camera, is the fact that
Allah subhanho wa Taala he brings victory to his people, to those who are with Allah subhanho wa Taala and believe in him and are patient with the challenges of life that comes with three or the result of belief and faith. Right for Allah subhanho wa Taala brought this victory to the Muslims. It was a victory brothers and sisters in Islam because you can imagine, as we tried to describe yesterday, what is happening right now is that the Muslims are performing Amara, what is happening right now is that the Muslims are being recognized as citizens of the region. They're not being recognized as bandits. There's a lot happening here. It's not just the Amara happening. But there's
a lot happening in the backdrop of this armor. And let's not forget tauheed being announced,
you know, at unprecedented levels as the staff is happening around McCann remember maca was not as much as we know it today. Right? The homes were close to the Kava and those doing tough and announcing the tauheed their voices were heard by those who are in their home. So this was a victory for the Muslims. It took a while, but it came. And this doesn't mean that victories didn't happen before for the Muslims. Victory did happen. Allah subhanho wa Taala brought victory time and time again. And that's what kept the Muslims going. But in terms of the Muslims and Mecca, this victory came and let's not forget how you know we had this discussion at the end of blast from the past
season two and the beginning of blast from the past season three, this whole emotion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam walking out of Makkah, and turning around and looking back at Mecca and say if it wasn't for your people Llama Llama harsh to me, I would have not left you I would have not departed from you span Allah. So it was a massive sacrifice that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did when he left Mecca. And you can imagine also what it was for the Sahaba that followed him that all they did was say are a boon Allah Subhana Allah, that our Lord is Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's the only one worthy of worship for for this Subhanallah the memories were taken away, their
belongings were taken away, their abodes were taken away, their citizenship was taken away, their welcome was taken away, their relationships were taken away Subhanallah And now finally, Allah subhanho wa Taala brought victory to them. And this is just the beginning. Because when we discussed the opening of Mecca, you will see the ultimate victory. So in our life, brothers and sisters in Islam, people will do things to us, it might be at work, it might be you know, in school, it might be with your in laws, you know, people will do wrong things, people will run propaganda campaigns against you people will try and, you know, quote unquote, cut you up and undercut you and do the
wrong things. To to gain an inch. So Pamela, on you, as they say the corporate world is, is the rat race, right? Everybody's is their everybody's trying to overstep each other just to get ahead. And Subhanallah if you become part of the rat race, then you know what, if you're in a rat race, then everyone in it is, you know the answer to that, right. So the point is, brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn from the events of the Sierra, that no matter what happens, don't go against your values. Be true to who you are, Be true to your faith. Remember, when we discussed the Bible of the Confederates in the oven, were ready to walk away if they took the harvest of Medina and what did
the leaders of tonsor say what it said even more I'd say he said these people would never take our harvest, except as a gift or accept through trade. And that was when we were upon misguidance worshipping idols, associating partners with Allah, are we going to let them take our harvest? After we c'est la ilaha illa Allah? No way. Right so it's about remaining upon your values, brothers and sisters in Islam. It's not about doing that which is easy always is also about doing that which is right doing that which is right and Subhana Allah sometimes you get this in marriages, especially the hole in law
you know, seen where in laws become quote unquote outlaws.
So you know,
I don't mean to be disrespectful, you just the light moment, but you know what I'm saying brothers and sisters in Islam where the whole
scene becomes toxic. And in in the toxic scene, you find a lot of lies a lot of allegations, a lot of people choosing to think the worst of someone's speech and the worst of someone's actions taking place, and Subhanallah if we're not careful, this can really shift us this can really change who we are, and this could really negatively impact our faith. It's when push comes to shove in these matters, do we need to hold on to the guidance of the seer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knowing that he went through much worse, the Sahaba went through much worse, but what did they do? And we have to use them as our guide, believing that at the end, the truth will come out
and victory will be for those who are upon the truth and those who protected the values and those who maintained the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his rosu sallallahu alayhi wasallam so don't be easily pushed by Shere Khan over the top life will take you to a tipping point. But the question is, are you going to tip or not?
And for those who don't tip the no doubt the reward is great. Alright Jenna to admin, Treasury when Tatiana and her Holly Dina via on May 2 aka iba Su Han Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says what do I know mean Allahu Akbar? Anyone my second oppai button fee jannetty Adam, or Edwin amin Allahu Akbar, this is in.
In Surah tober.
Yes, in Surah, Toby in the third quarter of the 10th Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights very wards for those who maintain faith, maintain themselves maintain the right way they fight to remain upon the right path. This is what we learned brothers and sisters in Islam from this event in the Sierra and others as well. Lesson number three, taking the means is part of the Sharia. And we've spoken about this throughout the Syrah from season one to now in multiple scenes in multiple segments. The point is brothers and sisters in Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took the means some people today say you know what, if I if you know I won't take medicine, if Allah
wants to cure me, I'll be cured. This is not an Islamic teaching. They say you have to have to work cool in Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala when if you take medicine, you're not placing your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this could not be further from the truth. And this is actually not our call. But it's another term called tower could tell where cool is when you speak like this, when you don't take the means believing that I'll just put the pot on the stove and food is going to magically appear in it. It doesn't work like that brothers and sisters in Islam, you have to switch on the stove, you have to put the right pot you
have to put the right amount of oil and the right amount of ingredients and then the heat the pot has to remain cooking for the right amount of time for the product to
to be edible. That's the reality that is taking the means you have to lock your door and put your trust in Allah that Allah inshallah makes the means work for you. This is the universal law of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we must fasten our seatbelts, we must take the means and then put our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala no doubt what is wrong is that you believe the medicine is going to cure you. I have a headache and you say I've taken medicine I'll be okay. This is not from the speech of the believers, brothers and sisters in Islam. You have a headache and you take the medication you say by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah, I will be okay because I've taken the means.
This is the speech of the believers. So we have to be in the middle and make sure we don't stray. But the point is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took his weapons, he was not naive. He did not say, Well, we've signed an agreement. And whatever happens happens, you know, whatever Allah wants to happen will happen. So we're not going to do anything. No, he took his weapons, he didn't break the treaty. He didn't break the promise. But he took the weapons to the point that he could, and in him doing so
it was a means of preventing harm, because you can only imagine how many people along the way I would have wanted to benefit from the was that the Muslims were carrying, and the animals that the Muslims were carrying, and also take advantage of the opportunity at hand that the Muslims are out in the middle of nowhere, they're not in the stronghold, this is a chance for them to be attacked only for them to see armor, shields, weaponry, and for them to think twice. So the point is, take the means, you know, install the alarm system, switch on the alarm system and lock the door. Get the neighbor to watch over your house, but understand that ultimately everything is in the hands of
Allah subhanho wa Taala and the means can only work if Allah wills when you drive wear your seatbelt, drive to the speed limit, drive appropriately, same thing with with with the theme that we in the year of COVID and this whole discussion about you know, social distancing, and wearing the mask and so on and so forth. Take the means this part of taking the means, right that through experience, people have said that if you social distance and you wear your mask and you wash your hands, then this prevents the spread of Corona you save yourself your chances of not getting Corona go up and your chances
Not spreading it to others go up.
But we get other people who they believe otherwise, they refuse to follow the means, right? And they make excuses to make themselves feel better. This is called cognitive dissonance, that no I don't have Corona Who said I have Corona? I just you don't have Corona. Brothers and sisters in Islam take the means. Yes, at the end of the day, and very recently I had a discussion with someone and he says, He says, Are you scared of us? Are you scared of Corona? I said, No, it's not about being scared of Corona what are the persons that are you scared of dying?
These are naive people and misinformed people and they need to ask themselves how they will stand in front of Allah that they have to because Allah will ask them about what they did. That instructions came to you based on experience. Like from experience, you knew that taking paracetamol cures you headache from experience, people told you what is for your safety and what isn't for your safety.
But you take paracetamol for your headache, but you choose not to social distance you choose not to refrain from shaking hands, you choose not to wash your hands and you and then you make excuses to help you sleep at night. How strange is the son of Adam? Allah, Allah Stanley, Allah grant is the understanding. The point is brothers and sisters in Islam, we take the means, but it doesn't mean that we practice social distancing, and we washed our hands and so on and so forth, that we won't get Corona. We have save us from Corona and save us from all diseases, it doesn't mean that you took the means that you you know that the house won't be broken into or that an accident may not happen.
It doesn't mean that. And again, we need to highlight this because some people say this. They say no, I practice social distancing. I used to wash my hands. I used to do this. I used to do that. But look we were affected with with COVID. Or a person. He was the most precocious but he was affected with COVID brothers and sisters in Islam. Come on. The Shetty is clear. Islam is clear. It doesn't mean if you take the means that the means will work. But it means that you must take the means because taking the means is from our code is from putting your trust in Allah. It's from you worshiping Allah with our code.
And at the end of the day, then as part of the process, you ask Allah to make the means work for you. And if Allah doesn't make the means work for you, then this is the federal Kony. This is the universal cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because there's two types of other there's two types of decrees of Allah. One is the decree based on the fact that we need to take the means this is known as Russia.
And one is the other is the ultimate decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is another alcone, the universal cutter. And no doubt the universal tada is above the religious cutter, the religious cutter is you and me taking the means you and me applying for a job. You and me trying to get to the masjid, you and me studying for our exams. This is the religious cutter. But then there's a universal cutter. Like for example, on the day of the exam, you sick on the day of the exam, you are stressed you didn't read the question properly. It happened, right? Or you took the means that Subhan Allah the universal partner came through, and the preventative measures you took to protect
your to protect a property, they didn't work for you. This is the universal color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we must be balanced, we must be balanced, take the means, but understand and believe from the bottom of your heart that the means will only work if Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to work and this is the worker, these are the two elements to the worker, okay? What's wrong, is to only put your trust in the means. And what's wrong is to only put your trust in Allah without taking the means because you're going against the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala himself. All right, I've taken much time on this. But I just feel it's important given a few recent encounters
that I personally had. And after all, this is blast from the past year in the 21st century. And unfortunately, despite the rich Syrah that we have in the 21st century, we still have to have Subhanallah these discussions. Okay, my next point brothers and sisters in Islam is from an Islamic perspective, sometimes it's permissible to instigate certain emotions within the enemy, emotions of anger, for example, why they're not owed any favors. If somebody says, The Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam by him running the first three rounds, you know, this running it causes the courage to become angry.
Right? We so you know, they say, why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do this? And we say why not? Do you know do the courage deserve any favors? They were spreading rumors that the the fevers of Medina have weakened the Muslims. It was counteracted through action, and this is the next lesson brothers and sisters in Islam. Sometimes, sometimes you can put an end to a misconception without even speaking.
You can put an end to a misconception without even speaking in practice. You put an end to it. In practice, you put an end to it. There's the core issue of spreading these rumors. Nobody had to stand up and say it's a lie when there was no fevers we weren't affected in practice. The Muslims are
Her jogging around the Kaaba for the first three rounds, except the last portion between the rock Valley Amani and, and the Hydra last word, the Blackstone, by the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. This by itself dealt with the rumors because the Quraysh themselves spoke to each other and said, who said these people are weak look at them. Right. So this is something we should also understand that there's more than one way in dealing with a rumor. Sometimes we don't have to be reactive, we can be proactive, and as we discussed in previous episodes per activity,
in most cases is better than reactivity. The next lesson brothers and sisters in Islam is that there are some there are some things that happened for a reason, right, and a low comes down because of them. But then that lower last of the day of
like uncovering the shoulder, when you and when you arrive at the cover, and you do the first off, so you uncover the right shoulder for the males. And then after the tariff, they cover the shoulder again, like for example, they're the jogging of the first three rounds.
tawaf or circumambulating. The cabin is seven rounds. Right? But for the first three rounds, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam commanded them then to jog to do this run this fast paced.
Power off. Okay. Why was it done for a reason, as we discussed, because of the rumors that were circulating about the Muslims. But this remained low until the day of camp.
This remained low until the day of camp. And we have many examples of this from them, for example, is the running of hijab between the two pillars through the valley, which today is marked by the two green lights for anyone who goes to Mecca. And you observing the say, you find these two green lights at the pilgrims rush between.
This was because of her job. When she was going between the mountains, she entered this valley. And when she entered the valley, she couldn't see her son that was left by the close to where the Kaaba is today. So the mother's instinct is to rush through it so you can get through to the other side. So you can see that your child is safe again. Allah loves this rushing, and Allah made this law until the day of karma, that's when we observed the Amara, or the hedge, we run between these two posts. So there's things like this in Islam, brothers and sisters in Islam that happened or the law came down because of a certain matter that happened. And then it remained for all of mankind to do
until the day of gamma. And the next time you go for Amara brothers and sisters in Islam, especially for those who managed to go now where things are
empty because of empty relatively, of course, Mashallah, the harem is much more fuller than it was last year. But it's also much more empty than we know it to be during the month of Ramadan. For those who get to go Alhamdulillah you will have the opportunity to do the ramen. Why? Because there's no congestion, the space for you to to move because of the social distancing rules. So do the jog. And when you're doing the jog, imagine the Sahaba jogging at that first Amara. Imagine it okay. And if you can ever do it and get in touch with me, send me a message and tell me what you felt at that time. When you did Subhan Allah, that tawaf that running, imagining the Quraysh and
where they were and what the Muslims were doing and what the Muslims were proving and where the Muslims came from, and what that meant to them because it's been so many years since they managed to be near the Kaaba, you do your thought of remembering them and tell me how special that thought was. Okay. Lesson number five brothers and sisters in Islam are sorry, that was lesson number five. Now very quickly, the highlights from the highlights brothers and sisters in Islam is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his marriage to our mother Mae Muna Wintel. haritha bintan Hadith Robbie Allah who.
She became a mother from the mothers of the believers for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married her she was from Mecca and her husband passed away. And she asked her sister and father to find, find her husband. Now I'm Father was the wife of remember, we spoke about him at best, Ravi Allahu anhu, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was a Muslim, but he remained in Makkah, because the Quraysh didn't know that he was a Muslim. And accordingly, he could send intelligence to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the of course, at best, he loves his nephew. And he couldn't think of any other man better than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for
me Muna. So he said,
to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that you know, maimunah is looking for a husband. And, you know, in his estimate, he felt that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best match for her, and the matter was decided upon quickly and the marriage took place. However, the banquet, the walima, didn't take place, because the Quraysh came knocking and they said Your time is up, three days are up, and you have to leave and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to them that you know, this marriage has taken place, would you extend my stay policy, and I will,
you know, I will put I will run a banquet because of this marriage and you you know, we can all eat and so on and so forth.
was the courage said we are not in need of your presence, nor are we in need of your food. And they asked him to leave salallahu alayhi wasallam in any case they left and then the marriage was
the bank could happen in the marriage was consummated at another place, which interestingly enough, Subhanallah was the place that she may Muna Robbie Allah who passed away Subhan Allah now she was 26 years old when the marriage happened. And there are fake discussions from this brothers and sisters in Islam. from them is the rules of marriage during Amara.
And the scholars have a discussion about this and much of this discussion boils down or goes back to the marriage of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to maimunah. Okay, but this is not a fifth lesson. So we don't have to cover this particular ruling. But if anyone needs to know then you can write in insha Allah. And one other thing you need to know about maimunah was that she was the last wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to pass away. Now the second highlight is
you know, remember yesterday we spoke about the impact of this camera upon wiremock. And how you know from the highlights of this ombre was that it caused people to start thinking it cause people to start questioning things, people who had an objective side to them, but for pa for the sake of peer pressure for the sake of tribal allegiances. For one reason or the other. Their objectivity wasn't really shining through. But over time they objectivity started shining through. And this camera caused this to happen for some of the people of Mecca from them was automotive and palha from them was Harley Davidson Walid now Harley Dibble Waleed Subhanallah, he was so invested in the way
of his forefathers, he was so invested in this whole, you know, quraishi thing, the Quraysh, the tribe, the way of the tribe, that he could not stand, the Muslims being there for for Amara, and he said that he hid himself from the whole event. So he couldn't witness anything from the event. Because for him personally, he felt that if he didn't witness it, this would be better for his well being. Now, despite this, Khalid was thinking, and Allah subhanho wa Taala guides the objective hearts. You know how it was thinking? Because imagine how many encounters he had with the Muslims. There was odd and highly different. Well, it is mentioned, did Khalid succeed, almost, but he
Some way somehow he didn't. And he is highly intelligent. He's, he's a war strategist, he is highly experienced. So he's looking back and thinking if this was any other circumstance, you know, what we would have we it would have been done and dusted, we would have won. But how is it possible that Oh, it wasn't a victory for the crush, something happened, then you've got the Battle of the Confederates, army of 10,000. And Khalid is one of the leaders of this with his experience with his intelligence with his knowledge. And his thinking, after we went with unprecedented numbers, and spent an unprecedented number of days in front of a people who are few in number,
we went back empty handed, something is happening here. There has to be some how can we explain this? How is this explainable? And then how it is thinking when it when it came to
this compensation that you're aware of before that the Treaty of alhuda abiah. Right when the Muslims were moving, and Khalid was ready for them.
And in in some narrativity is Khalid was aware of the movements and he was close by them, and he could have attacked them. But suddenly, something happened where he lost his resolve to attack and they settled. And before they knew it, the Muslims was on the other side of Makkah, they changed the route. And they were on the other side of Mecca, and Khalid was dealt yet another blow. So how did this thinking, what caused me to lose my motivation to attack?
I can't explain this. So yes, Harley, he's thinking of all the stuff. And then on the other hand, he's hiding himself away, but he knows what's happening in MK right? The Muslims are doing that, oh, he knows what's happening by the Kaaba. So,
you know, this became a real journey for Harley Davidson worried rhodiola at the time, he wasn't a Muslim. And
another thing we must add is that Khalid's brother, Walid yBnL. Well, it is Harley Davidson rallied and is worried if then well, it will. He didn't tell Walid he became a Muslim area. So this is Harley, his brother and they used to be close to Han Allah. He is in Medina.
Right. And he would leave messages of astonishment for Khalid In fact, when he came to Mecca it he said he couldn't find hot it because remember, we had it went into hiding. So he leaves a message for him saying, I'm astonished. I'm amazed at how an intelligent man like you while it can
To deny the truth of Islam. So this is his own blood brother, leaving him messages like this. Also Subhanallah a message gets to harlot, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said that it's astonishing how a man as intelligent as harlot,
can deny Islam. Imagine what an asset he would be fighting for the right cause being on the right side, living his life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this again, reaches hided. And it's causing Kali to think and think and think and think.
until the time Subhan, Allah, we heard it.
He speaks out to a group from the Quran. And he says that you know what, it must be clear for anyone who has a sound mind meaning who is objective, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is neither a magician or a poet, what we been told about him can't be true.
And also about his speech. Any intelligent person can see that his speech has to be from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Our brothers and sisters in Islam, the news of this gets to abou Sophia, who is the head of the Quraysh right after after brother, Abu sufian. He becomes a prominent person. So news gets to Abu sufian that Do you know what this is what Khalid said, and abou Sofia, and became so angry, he became so angry that he goes out to Khalid immediately, and he confronts harlot. And he asked, how did you say this? A Harley Davidson? Well, it was a brave character. He was a strong personality. Right? If you read about him, you see this. You see him having like a memorable hot pub
kind of personality, although you tend to feel that he might have been a bit more introverted. He was because you don't see his voice out there. But you see his thoughts out there. Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah. When we meet him on the agenda, inshallah we can speak to him about this and ask him, Are you an introvert? Were you an extrovert with Omar clearly he's an extrovert.
But Khalid had the strong personality. And Khalid without fear says to Abu Sufyan, yes, I did say what you heard. That's what I said. Abu sufian wanted to strike harlot but it Karima he stops Abu sufian from striking Khalid and he says, Take it easy.
sofian and you take it easy, because by Allah I fear the same as you that I too, will say the same as hearted one day and follow the religion of Muhammad Subhan Allah so you can see brothers and sisters in Islam, what's happening here, there's turbulence.
There's a crisis of faith, if you can, you can call it they didn't have faith, their faith was false. But if we if we say that they their faith was in the idols, while a crisis of faith is happening in in Mecca, now, Khalid, he, overtime, you know, he became set that I want to go to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and accept Islam. And the time came when he decided enough is enough, I'm going but I want to go with someone I don't want to go by myself. So he decided to speak to some of the Quraysh some of his friends, he speaks to a software anybody and he tells him what he's thinking of doing. And someone shuns Khalid and says Get away from me. This is unacceptable. He
then goes to a creamer, a creamer, who stopped Abu sufian from striking him and a crema Shan Shan is hot it and says Get away from me.
You know, he didn't. He had his internal battle, but he wasn't ready. He wasn't at the tipping point.
Then the profits then hardly double well it goes to to someone by the name of automatic Yvonne palha. The famous family, the family, the family that was meaning they were known to be the guardians of the gods of the cab. The gods of the cab. He goes to automatic and pilihan with Merriman palha says you know what i agree with you I feel the same. Let's go
Subhana Allah. Now they go on this journey to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Guess what? They meet another famous name. I said to the Quraysh
armory of Lhasa, the Allah.
So you can imagine these are tipping points brothers and sisters in Islam. Right?
These are big tipping points happening for the Muslims and also tipping points happening in Africa. They meet amaryllis now, hammering the laughs was an asset for the Quraysh. The chorus used him for strategic meetings with high delegations with people of importance with VIPs from them and Nigeria and Nigeria she and Amber they had a relationship.
Amber was affluent. And he was intelligent and he had the gift of the gap. So they meet Mr. Ross. They say well, you know what are you doing? He says I'm going to Medina holidays. I'm also going to Medina will tell how are we going to Medina to accept Islam? Now, let me tell you about the AMA very quickly. I know our time is up. But it's very interesting because the reason why amber was there is totally different to the reason why Khalid no
A man with a holiday goes man with a because through their own personal thinking, right? I'm sure he was there by the color of Allah Subhana universal cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't have the fiduciary. Remember we said you take the means he didn't have the fiduciary. He was anti Islam. So anti Islam he was that he felt that sooner or later, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to take over Makkah, and he says I cannot live under his rule. There is no way that I will be sane if I live here with Muhammad in charge of Mecca. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So what did he decide to do? He decided
to migrate to Abyssinia. He goes I have a good relationship with a Najafi. He's a Christian King. I'm going to go to Abyssinia and I'd rather settle there under him. I rather be under his leadership than be under the leadership of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so what happens
he goes to the JC
when he goes to Nigeria, she
finally and he always used to take these gifts to Nigeria she and he stick presents to under joshy he takes this presence he takes these gifts, and he he gets to Anna Joshi and he sees one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a new jesh now why was one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a Naja she? Well, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam kept engaging and modjadji right from season one or Season Two of blast from the past, the engagements happened remember the Jessie was a just king, he was hospitable to the Muslims. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was always engaging him. And remember we said
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam invited him to Islam.
So accordingly, it was regular, you'd see someone from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam steam with energy, armor, he will ask sees this person and he wastes his time. As soon as this person leaves ama enters into the presence of under joshy. And he says to under joshy, that I've come to you with this gift, and this gift, and so on and so forth. And he says that I just saw with you just now a follow up from the followers of Muhammad, and he is on the people that have disgraced and insulted our noble men. Hand him over to me so I can I can kill him.
No, no. joshy is friends with Amma. But no Jesse is no joshy this Abyssinian King is a just King. And he became angry. He became furious. In fact, if you look at the narratives in the Arabic language, it says he was furious. And he said to me, he says Amma Are you telling me to hand over to you? The person who follows Muhammad, the one who then now moose came to what is now moose. Now moose is debrief the angel, right? The one that the no moose came to the same nemos that went to moose era, his Sarah
and leggere she said, Whoa, upon you, oh ama, I command you to obey me. And I command you to follow Mohammed, obey me and follow Mohammed because I'm telling you Mohammed is going to be successful over you like Moosa was successful over around. Don't forget the stories of the past. The true stories of the past Subhan Allah Subhana Allah lukau Allah made in Nigeria she This is the universal cutter of Allah that Allah brought in Nigeria she as a means for amor, if I'm originally from Africa, he wouldn't have met Nigeria she if he didn't get to Nigeria, she at the time that he got there, he wouldn't have seen this representative from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and
this whole thing wouldn't have happened. Look at the color of Allah. Allah wanted Islam for Amma. Because amber had an objective side to him. And Allah guides the objective huts. Khalid had an objective side to him. Allah guided him on marine hubbub earlier in season one or two of us on the past he had an objective heart despite his enmity to Islam, it was switched. In an instant, the same thing happened to Amar'e immediately he started feeling over overwhelmed. He felt a change of heart. He felt a change of mind. And he accepted Islam immediately. He said to under joshy. He asked him the joshy that can you take my pledge of allegiance to Islam on behalf of Mohammed and Jessie
But armor didn't tell his people because when he migrated, he migrated with the group of people. He didn't tell his people. And then finally, when he returned back to Arabia, he wanted to go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is when he met Khalid and he met with man, and together they go to they go to to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam So here we see the universal cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right The decree the ultimate decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. descending upon these three individual individuals. With regards to Khalid he was t felt the tipping point. Same with mine, but also with mine, Khalid was a means with him. So Allah used Khalid as a
means for us.
Man, right because this man spoke to him and then they agreed and they went with regards to armor. Allah used that analogy he as a means for him so handler and even in our lives, brothers and sisters in Islam, there's so many things that happen in our lives that Subhana lights because someone that we met at this time at that place suddenly and we had a discussion with them, and they remembered us and Subhanallah that was the means of this job happening or this migration happening or this marriage happening. Subhan Allah, I think you all have your own personal stories and this is all the clutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's all the kaduk of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Okay, brothers and
sisters in Islam.
We have come to the end. But very quickly, I just want to discuss the lessons let's go through the lessons very quickly. Okay. Firstly, we learn about the love that Natasha had for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam even though Nigeria she never ever met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and how Niger she believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this African king, he believes in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, despite not ever meeting the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And we learn also about objectivity, that be objective, allow the truth to speak to you. If you always subjective, you start interpreting the truth and bending the truth so that it
matches your desires and you do yourself a disservice. So practice being objective rather than sisters in Islam. When someone speaks to you, Allah gave you on tongue, and Allah gave you two locks in front of your tongue. There's two locks, there's the lock of your teeth and the look of your lips. Look them both. Close your jaws and close your lips. And use the two ears which Allah gave you to listen. Allah gave you two ears, but one tongue, but when you subjective, you use your one tongue more than your two ears. Despite your tongue having two locks in front of it. Allah gave you one tongue with two locks, and two ears with no locks.
panela but when you subjective, you talk more than you listen, be objective, and listen, and don't respond, think about it, sleep over it, have a meal over it. And then think when you when you've gathered your thoughts, then respond. This is the way of the believers and this is the way of, of the people of success, like energy he hardly ever will lead. Like I'm not even last like automotive and palha and others. Also brothers and sisters in Islam. We learned how events can be game changes and tipping points because they lead to other things. The Treaty of Arabia ultimately was a means of ombre was the means of Khalid becoming a Muslim, and so on and so forth. And even the owner of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a means of hardly becoming a Muslim, and with man becoming a Muslim, and others eventually, also, we spoke about how the Treaty of her day be at the finer points even though it looked like it favored the Quraysh. But in effect, it was a great opening for the Muslims, but later on, and as Allah revealed in number 10 ellika Fatima Rubina that, indeed, we have opened for you a great opening. So we must be patient in life sometimes doing the right thing doesn't seem like it's the right thing, especially since the results of doing it are long term, but still do the right thing. Because yes, they are long term. But you will see a lot of other openings
happening for you, because of doing the right thing at the right time in the right way. Doing the right thing might take longer for you to yield its benefits. But when you do yield its benefits. It's far more massive than the short term gain. Also, again, the amazing leadership of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We've spoken about this throughout our series, we have another, you know, another tip from the prophetic leadership. And that's how he spoke about harlot and how the message reached Khalid, that hardly despite everything he's doing against Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is speaking about him and saying, He's so intelligent, and if only he
used his, his skills for the sake of Allah, it will be better for him. Remember,
people are imitative by design. We are products in some capacity of our environments. And Khalid he was respected by the courage, he was valued by the courage. He had a position with the courage and some people, this becomes over overwhelming for them that if I switch to the other side, I lose all this respect, I lose all this honor. I lose all this position, and who and I don't even know how it's going to be on the other side. And you know, it prevents you It prevents you from being objective, right? But now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is sending him This message is getting him that this is from the mouth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that look Khalid
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite you behaving like this incorrectly, he values you he respects you, he acknowledges your intelligence. He acknowledges your experience and your skills and and and what happens.
This is a major amazing leadership, right? It causes a person to start, belittling the stress on the wrong side and giving importance to the positive pressure from the right
sight, and this ultimately helped him accept Islam. Also brothers and sisters in Islam
the Islam of Khalid was a game changer in life. Allah does send us game changes every now and again. And speaking about game changes, then Ambani last raga one was a game changer as well, because now you know the Muslims had the warfare skills of Khalid and they had v.
v v. It had be interactive acumen and
reading of events intelligence of admirable as robiola one. So as you can see brothers and sisters in Islam, as we move to the end of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his his, his short term vision vision. This was the short term vision right? his long term vision was Islam reaching the four corners of the world. But he needed a short term vision because he knew that my life is not long enough to witness Islam reaching the four corners of the world. So he had a short term vision of leaving behind a team that will facilitate this and SubhanAllah. Day after day, Allah is making the plans for the short short term vision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam being
achieved, come more and more into being okay. We'll stop there today brothers and sisters, sisters in Islam. Tomorrow when we return we want to discuss a battle that we rarely hear of, but it is a famous battle. It's an important battle is the Battle of
the battle. And I've chosen to add this as part of the curriculum for you to see how
important the Islam of holiday will Waleed was and what a tipping point it was for the Muslim and what value he immediately brought to Islam, especially after our discussion today related to him, holiday will will lead with my demon palha and unbelieving last rhodiola anti Marine, I love you all for the sake of Allah. As always everything corrected is from Allah alone and he's perfect and any mistakes are from myself and she upon and I seek Allah's forgiveness. May Allah forgive our past, inspire our futures except our month and take us from strength to strength and bless us to witness the night of power and decree and virtue and May Allah make our ending to the month stronger than
our beginning. I mean your blood I mean until tomorrow brothers and sisters in Islam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
