I greet you with the greetings of Islam and peace. Salam O Allah aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. May the peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all, and welcome to episode number 25 of our flock of sera series, and season four of it. Plus from the past Sierra in the 21st century, brothers and sisters in Islam yesterday, we continued on with the events pertaining to
the opening of Makkah things that took place events that took place. And as we said, our series is dedicated towards focusing on segmented events, events that we can deduce lessons from, that you and I will benefit from in the 21st century today. So I always say this, and I must say it again, it's important that you do go back to the books of Syrah and read the detailed narratives and events for yourself. And I pray that our session together is a means of encouraging you to do that. Building within you love to do that. And it acts as a catalyst for you to actually go through ACR a book cover for cover. Now remember, yesterday we said that the next point would be our famous pitstop
session. And we will take lessons from what we've taken thus far. And we ended our narrative segment at the point where Abu Sufyan became a Muslim and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that at best to,
to take him to a viewing point, a high point so he can see the 10,000 Muslim
army passing through walking towards Makkah. inshallah, after we take the lessons, we will discuss the entry of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and the Muslims into Mecca. But I have to say this, this is a correction. And
in case you started, in case it wasn't picked up, and I thank the viewers that did pick it up. I think the fast was getting to me yesterday.
So at one point, we were discussing our best, but for some reason, I began saying Hamza, we are the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I apologize for that. I think there were two places in which I said, Hamza, but and just before that I was saying above, so I can understand.
You know, if any confusion was caused, obviously, Hamza passed away at the end of the battle of Ohio. Here we discussing our best it was all about. So anyway, I said, Hamza, please cross that out and place a bus. Also, I did have another slip of the tongue. And I do put this down to the fast taking its toll.
Yesterday, when we spoke about the discussion between bears and armor, and how a bear said that armor was favored, we would favor his own tribal men, if the situation was different. And he was being heavy handed on abou Sophia. And because Abu Sufyan was not from by new ID. And we said that this was this couldn't be further from the truth that our boss made him his mistake in his assessment of armor. And I highlighted to you what happened at the end of the battle of a better by mistake. I said a lot. It was actually I'll bother and you all know this for those who join me during Season Two of blast from the past. It was at the end of
Bader arbejder when the Muslims had captives, and there was a discussion between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions, whether to take them as prisoners, or whether to effect upon them, or what to what would be the next step. And armor was of the opinion that a person be brought forth and then
Someone from the Muslims from his own tribe, his own
people be brought forward to deal his, his his, his tribes person, the capital, punish punishment for coming out and fighting the Muslims. So here you can see that armor was was far from this whole thing when he accepted Islam, he accepted it because it was the truth. And when he fought Islam, he fought, he fought it because he thought it was the truth. And when he accepted Islam, he was done and dusted with any bonds pertaining to blood, because he, for one accepted that the bond of faith is far greater than the bond of blood. Okay, so now that we've correctly corrected that, and that was an amount upon me, we can move on. And I thank those who did write in to guide me regarding that
In terms of the lessons very quickly, firstly, brothers and sisters in Islam, from what we've taken thus far pertaining to the the expedition of the opening of Makkah, we learned first and foremost, and by the way, these are lessons that we've taken across blast from the past. And I've said it before, and again, I will say it again because it needs to be said we know the whole highlight of the consistency of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his actions and his wisdoms beat when they were a Muslim minority in Mecca beat when they were a Muslim majority in Medina, and then events between that and after that we always see consistency. So what I'm sharing
with you might have been shared before, but I share it with you because there are lessons that deserve to be mentioned. So in firstly respecting our treaties, yeah, you have levina M and o hoobler. accord, Allah commands us towards, you know, respecting our, our word, and that our word is our bond. And we see that Subhanallah the Muslims were very strong, but nonetheless, they respected the covenant. They didn't break the covenant until the Quraysh broke the covenant when they secretly have been boubakeur and the atrocities against the Hosea. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, did what was necessary, but before that, we have to understand the Muslims were strong,
they were strong davia, as we discussed, so you can imagine the years after that, when the Treaty of alhuda was in play, and the Muslims were signing treaties with others and mixing with others and presenting Islam with others no doubt, they only put themselves in a stronger position was the Quraysh. All that time, they stopped being bothered with what they were bothered with for the years prior, regarding the Muslims, so they became stagnant. But despite the strength of the Muslims and the the weakening of the Quraysh, we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not doing anything until they broke the covenant. So we respect our covenant brothers and sisters in Islam, it is a
trust between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, we don't behave one way when we have the upper hand. And another way when we don't have have the upper hand. And we should think about this today in the 21st century, brothers and sisters understand with regards to modern day contracts, and the whole concept of law and lawyers, and the concept of hiring, or winning a case based on you know, which lawyer has the gift of the gab, which lawyer knows how to shout the loudest or threaten the most This is what we see in modern day law. Right? It doesn't matter about what's right and wrong, it matters, you know, the type of lawyer you bring
into, into your your your situation, we must remember this brothers and sisters in Islam, that oppression is not just a darkness, but darknesses on the day of tm. And if we don't follow our contracts, and we try to wiggle our way out of contracts, especially in a way that brings harm to the other party that know and understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring everything to light on the day of justice on the Day of Judgment. The second lesson brothers and sisters in Islam was that that should be highlighted is again how Allah subhanho wa Taala proves the prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we discussed this at hiber. We discussed this when we spoke
about the Battle of the Confederates and other places whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala gave miracles for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam which we said is we know as Marchesa and Margie is that in the Arabic language as miracles, but
technically the scientific term for it is della illan nuba the signs of prophethood. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gave or manifested the prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through this expedition. Why? Because remember, brothers and sisters in Islam
when helping sent the letter with the female, that almost exposed the plan of the Muslims and how they didn't have any solid information but he had a sixth sense in terms of what was happening. And he explained what he did we find that Subhan Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala sends gibreel with this information, and then Ali is dispatched with others and 12 miles out of Medina this female is found and the letter is retrieved and this was clearly a sign that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is informed is reading
field to there were no satellite services. Back in the day there was no internet, there was no GPS, there was no real time data that could be, you know,
transferred. There were no big data and tech companies actively monitoring the circumstances and situations and through real time communications, communicating things, what was happening is
ultimately the Lord of the worlds the creator of everything in creation, the one who is independent, and all technology and all people are dependent upon subhanho wa Taala. He informed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Speaking about the story of how tip, then also from the lessons brothers and sisters in Islam, we learned the status of the people who fought the battle of Bader and the scholars have highlighted this in their writings ever since they talk about the mahadji rule. And from the mohajir rule, the people of Alberta, the earliest of Muslims, and meaning they speak about the earliest of Muslims, they speak about the heart mahadji rune and then they speak about the
people of Alberta, which consisted of the mahadji rune and the answer because remember, when Rama wanted to do what Omar wanted to do, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam corrected him by saying that what you know, what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, you know what? How do you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala may have looked at the deeds at the people of Athens and he would have said, Do as you wish, do as you wish for you are for you are forgiven. So brothers and sisters in Islam, this was a lesson for armor, right? And we spoken about this that sometimes we see things with our own eyes, and someone else
sees it with their own eyes. And they have an angle and a level of knowledge through which they see things that we don't have. And they see it differently to us. And in a narrative as we explained, our armor did cry, and he said, Allah and His rosu know best so this is it. Brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn
the status of the people of Bethel, and we also learn that Allah and His Rasul know best we also learn that Allah and His rosu know best if we come across anything in the Quran, and we come across anything in the Sunnah. And we feel that it doesn't make sense to us, but it's authentic, then follow it, because if doesn't it, the reason why it doesn't make sense to you is because you lack some knowledge that is required before that information makes sense to you. So it's about trusting the Quran and the Sunnah as Omar trusted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decision with regards to how to but remember how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam treated him very kindly,
also from the lessons brothers and sisters in Islam is to ask the people of knowledge if you don't know, like Omar did in two places in the story, one with health IT he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allow me to effect on him capital punishment for treason. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught Omar and then when he wanted to also effect capital punishment on on Abu sufian, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
forbade him and corrected him. So here we see brothers and sisters in Islam, the importance of going back to the people of knowledge, no matter how knowledgeable you are, there's always going to be things you don't know seek it from the people who know. And if you do know, then we learned another lesson. And that is the importance of shuara upon you know, the importance of bringing people together and discussing things with people discuss things together, right?
What do you think? What do you think I should do? This is what I'm thinking, what are your thoughts about it, and then move forward. There's always Baraka in it. We've spoken about mutual consultation, in more than one season of blast from the past and several times in our series as well. Also, we learned brothers and sisters in Islam.
From the story of how thieves Subhanallah, there's so many lessons, we learn how to differentiate between a person who wants evil for Islam, and a person who doesn't want evil for Islam, when we judge them. And I think this lesson applies even more today in how we you know, the social media scene is we know the social media scene is brothers and sisters in Islam. And also we know the test that some speakers on behalf of Islam, they go through, and they make mistakes naturally in the efforts with their communities.
You know, not everyone has the same agenda. And if a person makes a mistake, and he doesn't intend harm on Islam, right, then we should deal with them in a particular way. And we get this from the prophetic guidance right from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam treated how they courteously, he treated him kindly, right, no trees into place. Allah stopped it from taking place, and in the same breath, happy, didn't want to evil for Islam. He spoke the truth. He made a mistake. He said he had it was an oversight on his part, right? And he sought forgiveness and let's move on. Right? So it's important that we don't hold our speakers, our
preachers, especially those who sincerely work for the benefit of the community, and they they work for the benefit of Islam, and they sincerely make
an odd mistake. It's important that we deal with that mistake in the spirit.
That is intended within Islam we don't go on a rampage against them and criticize them and, you know, warn people against them as if they are a people who want harm for Islam as if they haven't done any good for Islam. So this balance we learn brothers and sisters in Islam from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in how he sallallahu alayhi wasallam dealt with how they even abhi about that when he made this mistake when he wrote to the Moorish for some worldly gain as part of him falling prey to human nature, he didn't intend any harm. We discussed that yesterday. For those who missed it, please do go back to yesterday's episode. We also learn brothers and
sisters in Islam from the story of how they that a major sin doesn't take you out of the fold of Islam, and how they made a grave mistake, a major mistake, but he was still considered to be a Muslim. And this goes against the ideologies of extremist groups who believe that if you commit a major sin, then this takes you out of the fold of Islam. We see in practice between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and helped him that this isn't true. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has taught us this way, verbally in verbatim he has taught there are enough lessons in the sooner that teach us that a person doesn't leave the fold of Islam if they make a major sin. And
also in practice, we see in terms of how he dealt with health IT also brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn the importance of giving people they do. Right we spoke about this earlier in how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote to the kings and the emperors and how he, you know, call them by their titles. He didn't, you know, address them without using the titles. Also, if we just go into the whole narrative about Abu sufian the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave him his deal. Abu Sufyan was respected with the courage and as Abbas said, he loves honor so honor Him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever is in the home of abou Sophia and is safe.
Right? Right. And this meant a lot to abou Sophia. And you can imagine that wow, I just became a Muslim and this is the and I'm being given that my home is safe is a form of safety for everyone. Right? No doubt you feel special. Right? So you feel that so panela I left idolatry one of the things preventing me from leaving it was I was a person of honor. I was respected. I was a leader How can I give this up? You know, human beings, they are weak in front of power in front of wealth, financial standing material, well being to give it all up is not an easy thing. And thus we respect the Sahaba the earliest of Muslims even more, because they gave it all up brothers and sisters in
Islam. Right? And here we see Subhana Allah,
Abu sufian Okay, he's he's come on to the other side. He's accepted Islam, but now you need to, you know, no doubt you accept Islam, because you believe it to be the truth. But then when you get on it, you know the whispers of shavon subside. Right, the whispers of Chopin subside. So by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying whoever is in the house of abuse if he and he saved, you can imagine what this does for his morale. What this does for he's thinking about his position amongst the Muslims. Now, let me tell you something, and this is just in case you didn't think about it. And yesterday, I said I'll touch on it during the pitstop. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam also said, Whoever goes into their own home will be safe, whoever goes into the masjid will be safe. So what's the point here?
What's the point of view Sophia. It's not like a boo Sofia and his house is special that he only his house is the house where people will be safe in
the Prophet said, Whoever goes into Abu sufian house will be safe, whoever goes into their own house will be safe, whoever goes into the machine will be safe. So you know,
how does this work? This is the psychology brothers and sisters in Islam. This is leadership from the best of leaders by singling out the name of Abu sufian.
He feels on it. He's been given an honor that others haven't been given.
Right, because the Prophet said whoever is behind the doors will be safe. Doesn't have to be the home of Abu sufian. But the point is when I best asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to undergo Sophia and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't need to think it wasn't a big matter. Whoever is in his house will be safe and whoever is in the houses will be safe and whoever is in the machine will be safe. Let's move on. But this is this is executive leadership, brothers and sisters in Islam. Well, you know how to deal with matters. Well, you know how to how much time to give to matters. And you know, when you can read events, you can read events that this is not a
big matter. He's just looking for honor honor him give his name a special mention and his name is signaled out and highlighted into para la Abu sufian. He felt excited about this and you'll see when we when they get into Macau what happened as a result of this. Also we learned brothers and sisters in Islam so we spoken about this right looking after the psychological matters of people looking after respecting them right there. They had a position before Islam respect them after Islam make them feel important after Islam so that allows the Islam to settle in their hearts. Right and we in the month where many people are paying Zakat as well from the categories of Zika
Is to, well, more or less.
Well, more or less at Polo boom, Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He highlights on the category categories of Zika.
A group of people that can be given Zika so that you bring the hearts closer to Islam.
Right. Now a question does come out that How can this be? Because how can they accept Islam for money?
If they accepted Islam, they accept Islam because it's the truth. You can't accept Islam for money once you don't believe in your heart. So what is this particular verse or this portion of the verse of this category of Zechariah talking about and what this category of Zika is talking about brothers and sisters in Islam is honoring people.
I'll carry mu u sub booboo ashia layer u sub people who let him write the Karim the honorable one. He creates events that a miser, the opposite of being honorable and courteous, doesn't create and cannot effect. Right? You know, brothers and sisters in a snap, when you be nice to somebody, the heart opens up to you. The heart opens up to you. So with regards to these people, they accepted Islam, but their hearts were not opened up to you. Because they might feel that okay, we accepted Islam we from before, we didn't think it was a bad idea. But we just would we were bent on following the way of our forefathers. So now we've accepted Islam. But you know what, this is bad blood
between us. Right? Or there's this honor that I lost. I reminisce about it I think about it. This is position that I had in society, I think about it, right? So Allah from the from the categories of Zika, Allah provides us the opportunity to be to be courteous and generous to those to pay give them to spend on them, and that makes them feel honored. So it allows the whispers of Chopin and the previous baggage to subside. This is what it's about. This is what it's about. When Abu sufian became a Muslim, he was a Muslim, but no doubt he's going to battle as human beings do with things. And people accept Islam for different reasons. Some people accept Islam through debating them, you
present to them the truth, they are objective, they accepted the anti Islam. Some people need to go through the battle phase, like we see in the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some people we need to be honored like this, like once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave so much to a person who accepted Islam, he ran back to his people, and he said, Oh, people are slim. For us remover in the Mohammedan europea and men lie actual Fokker Subhana Allah, he said, Oh, people accept Islam. For indeed Muhammad gives a giving of a person who doesn't see a poverty and people accepted Islam. Might they feel that there'll be honored as believers when they were feeling
dishonored as disbelievers. So different things instigate different people. And here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was teaching us another level of consideration when we deal with new Muslims. And that is also to look after their emotional and psychological well being taken into account where they came from, what was the situation before Islam to help Islam truly settled in the house that they believe, but we don't want that belief to fly away. We want the belief to settle. So these are tools that can be used, and we learned this from this portion in the Sierra and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best also brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn from the last portion
the, you know, the
how to manage people, right, because this whole this whole thing with the blue Sophia and and how when I say the last portion, I mean how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Allah best take him up onto the mountain onto a viewpoint and make him watch the Muslims go through. An Abu sufian is watching and seeing Subhan Allah, Who is this tribe, and who are they? And who are they? And who are they? These are the mahadji rune and this is this tribe and this is that tribe, these are the answer. What does Abu sufian say? He goes by he's amazed. He goes, these are the people that nobody can overcome. Right. So what this is, Matt, this is part of the managing of people and managing
events, because now Abu sufian is going to is going to help when we get into Makkah. right because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants it to be bloodless. He wants this event to be bloodless and Abu sufian can play an integral role in making this event bloodless. So you managing people of the look at this executive leadership from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It was visionary that he told an Abbess before they left Hold on, take him to a high point and make him watch because when he sees exactly what is happening, all the whispers of Chopin will leave, you know, maybe he'll get to Makkah and he'll meet the Polish and he will feel stronger now that is with
the parade. He might change his view and act in a way that will be counterproductive to what we're trying to achieve. So let him see exactly what the situation is today. And that was the case when he
So he came to the realization that irrespective of any meaning my decision to become a Muslim was right. It was for my best interest in this life and the next because these are the people that nobody's going to overcome. I know the people in Mecca, they're not going to overcome these people as well. Okay, so this is a blitz of lessons brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's move on to how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered Mecca. We spoken about his how, what a visionary he was how amazing he was how phenomenal he was a leopard Candela computer sudler he was a hustler, and it continues what happens he sets the following logistical processes in place number one holiday bill
Walid you will need the right link number two as you bail you will need the left flank number three Aveda blue Jura, the mean the trustworthy one of the oma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will need the infamous infantry. Number four the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks Abu hurayrah to call the answer. They come running to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells them the answer you are in charge of handling the tribes that the police have hired to fight us.
Imagine this is executive decision after executive decision. Next as debatable. You will lead them over June, you will carry the flag of the month of June. And guess what you're going to also enter meaning he tells them where they will enter from as well. You will enter from its upper part. And when you get to the upper part you will go forward until you plant the banner at a well known place called Allahu June. If you go to Macau and you ask about it. They will tell you where Allahu June is and you will have an idea where Zubaydah planted the flag that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him to plant it. When he heard it, you will enter through the lowest part of Mecca and
Saturday will rabada you will lead the answer and take note of the sad evil or bad he will lead the answer. And then last but not least the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave a general directive to all his vice men.
You are not to fight. Each and every one of you, you are not to fight. This is not a move of bloodshed. This is a move of taking back what is rightfully the believers and mcca was the land of the believers. Yo mahalo Allah who somehow it will out. When Allah created the heavens and the earth. Makkah was to be the land of the believers, not the land of the idle eaters.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said if you are to attack, then you can defend
but do not attack so he said you can fight if you are attacked. Now, these are amazing logistics. But not only this brothers and sisters in Islam, if you read the books of Sierra, you see Subhan Allah, the execution of the logistics was phenomenal as well. Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Mirza Cara hudak eronel abroad or Salli ala nabina Muhammad Mata aka Bella Luna ha or Salli ala nabina Muhammad wa ala mahadji. Rena will answer Subhana Allah, the execution brothers and sisters in Islam was phenomenal. When you read the books of Syrah, you see that everybody did what they were supposed to do. And they converged on Mecca from the upper part and the lower part in
all the different parts at the same time, like a convergence of waves from all sides of Allah Subhana Allah This is the picture that I get in my mind when I when I was preparing this lesson for you all and looking at the different narratives regarding how the Muslims entered Mecca phenomena. You could only wish that you were a fly on the wall watching this Hey, ne
ne Subhana Allah wa t him Minh Cooley, mccannon, Yanis, Rama they were they were the people of Macau entered upon from every direction. Now. No one faced resistance at hamdulillah except for one team and that was the team of highly digital wallet.
And it was short lived brothers and sisters in Islam. Short lift, because the numbers were too many.
you know, resistance will happen. You get you always get amongst the people, a group of people who are so emotional, they don't think that they might they don't care. They want to be the captain of the ship will go down fighting even if the chances of winning a zero. We just got to fight because that's it. It's this or nothing. Right? So you have this you get these people who are stubborn to the core. And these people sadly
met Khalid's contingent what's going to happen when you meet Khalid and his contingent is a short lived matter. They were dealt with effectively
with with with skill as well. Mashallah Tabata Kala Holly dibbler Waleed was equipped and he was skilled as well. And unfortunately some of the seniors of the Quraysh were here but they fled. They fled and
Even some of the highest mercenaries fled and the accounts in the Sierra that you will read personal accounts, private accounts, like for example, one person from the mercenaries he was sharpening his his spear or his arrow, and his wife tells him, you know, what are you doing? And he says, I'm going to bring some of the Muslims to be our slaves. And then he he goes to fight, and then he comes back running, escaping, and his wife said, What happened? And he says, Oh, yeah, what can I do? If you see a crema and you see, you know, so haleyville armor and all these big seniors escaping, what hope do we have? So we escaped as well. Anyway, you go back to the Sierra, and you read some of the side
narratives that fill the gaps
in terms of events, so they met this resistance from them, as I said, with some of the seniors like software, Amaya like a crema even a B gel, like suheil ibn amor, remember Sohail The one who negotiated the Treaty of Abu Dhabi, with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Subhan Allah, so magnificent with the Muslims that even these men who are considered important they fled, and again, causing those who looked up to them to flee as well. Now, as you can imagine, if this is the case, then Makkah generally surrendered peacefully. This was like how you have a tsunami, and the tsunami takes over land, and that land becomes part of the ocean.
Right? So it was a tsunami of faith. It took over Makkah, and momoka became a place of a place that was part of Islam. It was a Muslim place. It is a place of belief. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters Mecca from its highest part, riding on his animal. behind him is Osama bin Zayed. Remember Osama the freed slave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember we spoke about earlier in earlier lessons, the breaking of the adoption system and the class system. Well, here, again, a breaking of the class system that all these big people who you know, thought they were rich and thought they were important. They see the winners. I you know, the winners are the Muslims and
how Subhanallah you have Bilal coming. You have Osama who is a slave, he's riding at the back of the profits on meaning on the same animal behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He is on the lead his animal walking into Mecca
to announce that Mecca is free from idolatry and McCray is a place of belief. So in practice, the mccanns could see the system of slavery and the class system all of this being being broken. Right. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it must be said he was not in a harem. Normally when you enter Makka Makka sanctified, you enter the home. In fact, some scholars of Islam they say you cannot pass the me path, the entry point where you should be in Iran, except that you are in the state of Iran if you're going to accept if your circumstances exception, some it's a minority view, but this is the view of some of some scholars. The majority view is only if you tend intend to Umrah
or Hajj then you have to be haram before passing them apart. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said hoonah Allahu Allah Hindemith. luminara del Hajj, our Ummah, volumen Canyon Zilla who do not Radek
Manzella who do never like now. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that then when he walked out said Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam Allah ma TT the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said the, the the the mcats the different places for those who are coming from different places to Mecca. For Medina, for example, good halifa for the people of Nigeria, Cardinal monastrell, and so on and so forth. And then he said that these mere cards are for those who come for hedging, ombre meaning they can pick it when they can't pass it except that they are in the state of Iran, but for who Lehman arrived and had Joe Amara, those who intend Hajj or Umrah so so
majority of the scholar said, Those who don't intend hedge and Amara, then they don't have to go in into Makkah, in a state of Islam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered Mecca with a black turban on his head, which means he wasn't in the state of Haram, but those scholars who say you need to be in the state of Haram, they say the Fatima is an exception, that is the exception, but generally, you have to be in a state of harm. Anyway, that is just a side discussion, to let you know that some of these events of this era, they formulate discussions amongst the fuqaha amongst the scholars of jurisprudence in terms of how they
how they reach a fee, or jurisprudence conclusions to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters, he is not in a harem. He has a black turban on his head, but Subhan Allah, He humbled Himself so much
in thanks to Allah in recognizing the sanctity of Makkah,
that it is said that he lowered his head reciting surah to fit in the functionality of Medina remember that which was revealed after who they be when the Muslims are going back?
Feeling sad that they didn't do Amara and Allah said Allah has opened for you a great opening. That was the opening before the opening. He's reciting Surah Fatiha and he lowers his head so much that his chin touched the middle of the saddle.
The ilaha illAllah, the middle of the saddle.
This is the Messenger of Allah. What is he teaching as brothers and sisters in Islam?
That the right of Islam
is to learn
and the right of learning is to act. And when you act, the right of acting is to be humble. you humble yourself. you humble yourself. You don't act and feel I am better. He didn't walk into Makkah with he could have walked with his head up. But he walked in humbled. He didn't walk in thinking the Quraysh what you did to me today look look what happens huh?
Subhan Allah, He could have gone insane. Wallah he can macusa you Illa bialy another verse in the Quran, right? That the evil plans and process of people do not affect you except the process themselves. He could have used this idea when he went into
into Makkah, but now he goes in reciting in Nevada and Anika Fattah Medina humbled not one not thinking about what the Quran did to me. Remember, we've said time and time again, his mission wasn't mission Mohammed, his mission was mission Islam. His mission was mission salvation, his mission was mission taking people to paradise. So he's humbling himself at what Allah blessed him in that these people will go to Paradise today insha Allah after they were destined for the Hellfire, and he's grateful to Allah for the knowledge that Allah taught him. And then he is grateful to Allah for the ability to put that knowledge into practice and then is grateful to Allah for the opening
that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given him the Messenger of Allah is humbled, chin, lowered, so lowered, that is touching his setup as if his prostrating was the animal is moving when people are watching him. They don't see a man patting his shoulders, they see a man humbled in submission. So panela Revenge was never on his mind.
Revenge was never on his mind.
So very quickly from this brothers and sisters in Islam, thank Allah for the beard that you have for the ability to wear your clothes in a way that is according to the Sunnah for the ability to dress modestly, for the ability to crew to not go out with makeup if Allah has blessed you with the strength to do that, but do not look down on others. Don't look down on the brother who doesn't have a beard, or the brother who hasn't dressed properly, or the sister who hasn't dressed properly, or the sisterhood who went out with her makeup and her perfume. Don't judge. Just Humble yourself. And be blessed, amazed that Allah who blessed you to be what you appoint, and ask Allah to bless other
people with that which Allah blessed you, but don't judge them. Because Allah is the judge. And you don't know which deed Allah will use to put a person into paradise.
Right? Allah, as the Prophet told us, He forgave an evil person, just because
she offered water to an animal
So Allah is most merciful, when he can, as long as you are a believer, he can decide at any time he has ultimate executive authority to put you into paradise despite your sins. Look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about how
in effect, he was telling the Sahaba that don't don't think you better than him, because you don't know how Allah has looked at him.
But thank Allah for not testing you with the mistake that they've made, and ask Allah to forgive him. And that should be our way, brothers and sisters in Islam, that we wish the best for the people. We never think we better than them. We always think that perhaps they are better than us. We don't know what what private did they have what Allah but we thank Allah for Allah blessings upon us that we can practice a sooner that they haven't practiced. And we ask Allah to bless them to practice that sooner, but we never ever think that we will be in gender before them, or we will have a bigger agenda than them. Right? So we learned this from how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam humbled himself. Now in all of this, Abu sufian runs into Makkah. And he says, Whoever enters my house is safe.
Right? Whoever enters my house is safe. This is what he says Abu Sufyan. Whoever enters my house is safe. So his wife comes out. Now obviously his wife knows what he did. Because remember the night before the other two leaders refused a best offer and a best offer and they came back and Abu sufian stayed. So the wife now obviously knows where Abu sufian is. So she comes and she grabs his moustache.
Right in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says we should shorten the mustache. She comes and grabs his mustache and she starts speaking, she's his wife. She starts speaking about him in a really bad way. A really evil way. I don't even want to mention
In what she said.
So this is a husband and wife now in public. So Abu sufian he says to the people, do not be deceived by her or her words, Mohammed is coming to you with a force today which you cannot withstand Subhana Allah add lenders from, from the result of the prophets, wisdom when the Prophet told Allah best take him to the viewpoint. Remember, we spoke about the lessons learned how to manage people to turn them into assets for you.
Treat them in a way that tomorrow they will benefit you without even realizing.
So Abu sufian says, This is the reality. I'm telling you firsthand.
What you see is not what I have seen. So whoever goes in my house is safe.
So why not law? Now this is a serious situation, why am I laughing? Allah forgive me, and Allah forgive us all.
It always brings a checker when I when I come across this part
that people say to Abu sufian
they say to him, may Allah fight you, what will your house do for us? It's also
Lord Mr. And you can imagine brothers and sisters that is this is the reality of Allah He, when when I first read this part, when I first learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever goes into the house of abou Sofia and is safe. In my mind, I thought it's only the family of abou Sophia. But then when I also read abou Sophia and telling the people, that's the thought that came to my mind that those houses were so small, we talking about the people of Mecca, right? How are they going to fit in his house? So Subhan Allah, in any case, Allah forgive me and forgive us. It always brings this checkup. And that that's what I thought. And then I read the same thing that
this is what happened to people for the same the people said to him, that may Allah fight you and your car Telecom, Allah, may Allah fight you, what is your house going to benefit us today? We can't put in your house. So Abu sufian continued, he said, and whoever enters the house is safe. And whoever enters the masjid is safe. And everybody fled. And remember I said earlier, that what honor was there for Abu sufian the reality was, anyone in their own house would be safe. Abu souviens house was like any house, but the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned his name, and his house by name. for him. This was honor. And he went to his people and he announced it
that look we have and his mouse is safe. And then he announced whoever enters the house is safe and the machine is safe. So people can think Subhan Allah, maybe Abu Sofia negotiated this for us. It had an effect. It had an effect that, you know, the untrained eye wouldn't have desired or thought about so Han Allah. In any case, in any case, you see that the luciferians house wasn't special, but the moment was special for Abu sufian. And it also
you can say would have helped people
continue to respectable Sophia and because through this they would have thought that Abu sufian must have negotiated this ease for us but obviously he didn't. It was the man of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always speaking about leadership, let me tell you something else which happened. Right and this is the leadership that shouldn't happen. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam dealt with it and that shows us leadership that should happen. Sad, even bad. He was made a leader not so he was a who of the unsolved when they get into Makkah said even rabada has a human moment.
What happens? Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no bloodshed. Unless if attacked, remember that sad even Obeida had a human moment. Obviously it's emotional obviously you thinking about abou Sofia and in what he did at the Battle of the Confederates. What he did at overheard you thinking of bed? Are you thinking of all the problems problem after problem, he's thinking of it all. He has a human moment. And in that moment, he sees a boo sofian
and he says to abou Sophia and today is the day of slaughter.
Yo yo Mel hammer. This is the day of slaughter.
Today, the Kaaba will be deemed lawful. For blood being spilled, your blood is going to be spoofed.
Ah, who gave him the right to say this. Nobody gave him the right to say this. He was a leader under the leader. And the leader didn't give him the right to say this. When the news came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately took the banner of sight. You're not the leader anymore.
So we spoke about the amazing leadership of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How amazing is this phenomenal executive decision immediately made? Why? Because it's the right thing to do. Doesn't matter whose feelings you're going to hurt right now. It's the right thing to do. The benefit of the majority comes before the benefit of the minority.
But what did the Prophet do after he took the flag? This is again, you might say yeah, that's what the leader should do. Well then, but we
What did he do look at the presence of mind of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. In this heated moment, he takes the flag and he gives it to the son of a demon or bad
Subhana Allah, He gives it to the son.
Who is his son, his son, his face?
His son, his ice, he gives it to him.
Now, why is this amazing? Think about the brothers and sisters in Islam. Can you imagine how sad even or bad they would have felt?
When the flag was taken off him? Was he not from the seniors of the answer? Was he not? You could say the scene you have the answer? Of course he was.
Imagine if, when when it's taken away. What What does that how does that make you feel? And it's done publicly in front of the people who look up to you and see you as the leader. What does that do to them?
Yes, you made a mistake. You deserve what came to you But still, what does that do to you? And what does that do to your followers?
What is the prophets of Allah Allah sent him to he gives it to his son pace. By doing that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam justly dealt with the crime that sad committed when he said what he said, but in the same breath, he didn't make it harder for sad than he needed to be. By giving it to his son. What happens? What do when your son gets promoted? When your child gets given a gift? When your child gets a shield gets a trophy?
Don't people feel proud of you? The parent?
is indeed human nature. When your son gets given an honor, your son is promoted. Don't they tell the parents Congratulations. You must be proud of your son.
Guys, Are you with me?
what happens in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
gives the flag the banner? Sorry, I'm just looking at the messages coming in. Allah bless you all. Masha Allah, Allah Allah bless you all. May Allah bless you all from Facebook, from Twitter, from YouTube Allah bless your dessicant O'Hara for being part of this and for letting me know that there's life out there. It can be lonely when you teach online. So Han Allah,
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives the flag to ice, what happens brothers and sisters in Islam, the people who felt the hurt when the flag was taken away, immediately that hurt, turns into elation. Why? Because now you proud of sad, you're sad, you made a mistake that happened but Alhamdulillah something good happened out of it, how your son got promoted, your son is now the leader of the answer. And we love your son, and we respect your son, and he is the son of you, our leader. So that type of leadership, brothers and sisters in Islam is next to
that type of leadership is next to none. And we need to ask Allah to bless us with this presence of heart and presence of mind and this prophetic intelligence Subhan Allah that Allah subhanho wa Taala guides us and guides our affairs. I know we've gone over time brothers and sisters in Islam, but I do want to
Okay, we have we have gone over time. So let's stop here. Insha Allah, let's stop here. Okay, we'll stop here with the lighter Allah tomorrow when we come back, I will take you through the next steps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after all of this. When he went to the Kaaba, what did he do with the Kaaba, around the Kaaba, did he opened the Kaaba, who had the keys to the Kaaba, what happened to those keys after How was the Kaaba inside? What did he do? If he did go inside we'll discuss all this in sha Allah. And all this is testimony to his his mission, the mission of spreading to heat and the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala so today in sha Allah, we stopped at
this point, the point related to sad banner being taken off site and given to his son by his brothers and sisters in Islam desert Willow Heron.
