Kita Hill Majeed, we're for Connie Hill Hamid rubella humanos showpony rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim wakulla arriba de PUE Lottie oxen in Shavasana young zago Bina whom, in shadow Anika Anneli in sunny Adobe movie in sakalava Levine, honorable scholars, respected brothers, elders, mothers and sisters. Our topic of discussion tonight

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

is yet once again a very vital and integral topic. And that is peaceful coexistence.

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

Once a particular Imam walked into the masjid address in the congregation,

00:01:43--> 00:01:54

he said, Today I have two things before you. I have good news and bad news. Good news is that we now have sufficient funds

00:02:02--> 00:02:13

that is attached to the masjid for the institution purpose. That's the good news. Now comes the bad news. The bad news is the money is still in your pockets.

00:02:17--> 00:02:30

In that very same vein, I say to you, we have good news that as Muslims, we have the formula to rescue the world from the turmoil and the turbulence that it is experiencing.

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

The bad news is that we are hoarding the formula.

00:02:36--> 00:03:04

The bad news is that the formula is in my pocket. It's in my booklet. It's in my shell. If only we can rise up to the challenge of the hour, and exhibit the exemplary character and manifest the impeccable qualities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Then as I will endeavor to explain you would see the magnetic impact it would have on the broader people across

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

Bharani the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam exits from one of the apartments of his honorable consorts with him is alira the Allah subhanho

00:03:19--> 00:03:32

wa Taala Roger stone Allah hi Lottie. He can by the way, when suddenly a person advances towards him, mounted on his conveyance looked like a better one.

00:03:33--> 00:04:29

He came and he said, Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I have invited my people to Islam, and they have accepted the message. And I promised them material prosperity on the reverse wakad Assad but whom Sena tune by the will of Allah they've been grabbed by famine and drought for Asha, rojo minal izanami, Tama on camera Hello fi Tama. I am afraid that this adversity and this fear mine must not have a reverse effect upon them. They entered passionately, it must not be that they forsake Islam quickly. If you have any monetary assistance, would you kindly pass it on to me? Perhaps I could rescue their plight through monetary aid. Nabi sallallahu, wasallam modestly gays that Ali who

00:04:29--> 00:04:50

was with him and asked him Do we have anything at hand? He said, Oh, no, we have a lot of funds are depleted. It's exhausted. We don't have anything. Just then this gentleman comes forward, who was of a Jewish faith name. He was a rabbi. He was a priest. Zaid urbanears sana.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

He said, Oh Mohammed sallallahu wasallam. I am prepared to give you money if you can give me dates after a period of time. I can

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

You are in need of some funds. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that's fine, took the money now and made a deal that he would be paid the dates that he is asked for in due time. Nobody's asked him took the money, gave it to the bad one and said as his home one will buy a new home, use the money applying your mind and distributed fairly amongst these people who have reverted to Islam.

00:05:26--> 00:06:06

This particular happening ended concluded the villager when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Ollie moved on Zyban Asana, the Jewish rabbi left there was a time that was fixed that within this time the money would be paid back to him a day before the time had lapsed. So there was one more day of grace left to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they didn't Asana comes, comes from the rear, any harshly grabs the blessing government of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says you Quraysh you people have a reputation of prolonging payments.

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

Yeah, Muhammad Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Give me my view.

00:06:12--> 00:06:33

And he said, as I was harshly demanding my money from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam I happened to glance at Omar who was next door who I know who the deuterocanonical fella Kilmister deal and I seen Omar's eyeballs were turning viciously.

00:06:34--> 00:06:40

He looked at me and he said Yeah, I do. Voila. A tabula rasa Lila Hema smart

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

Am I hearing correct? Are you speaking to Alice maybe like this? How dare you blurt things like this?

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

bearing in mind, let's not forget, the time that was granted had not yet left.

00:06:57--> 00:07:22

This was a deliberate provocation from him. As the narration explains, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not argue the logistics that you know what, my time has not ended. I still have a de Nabi sallallahu Sallam said, Omar Omar, that's not the way we deal with situations. You should have been more wise in your approach. And morani because snail adhar

00:07:23--> 00:07:41

Omar, you should have instructed me, Alice levy is telling Omar, you should have instructed me and told me I must be more prompt with my payments. And you should have told the diviner Sana he should be more lenient in demand in his view.

00:07:43--> 00:08:11

Omar, your approach is going to compound The problem is going to excessive bait the crisis. We're not moving forward. You should have told me Oh Mohammed says and be prompt with your payments. And you should have told say the Vanessa Anna should be more lenient when he demands his deal. Now you take him Omar, give him his deal. And give him an added amount because of your harshness.

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

Where is this character in the world?

00:08:18--> 00:08:36

Can you imagine how the emotions of Omar were put to test a man that's provoking you any insight in your allas Navy is telling you be calm, be gentle, be polite. And that's not all give him an added amount? Amaro the Alon Who said I complied. And I started walking.

00:08:38--> 00:08:52

As we walk in, my blood is gushing and I am you know what furious and angry? How dare someone speaks to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like this? He said Atari phony armor. armor. Do you know who I am?

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

In my translation, Omar said I don't know. And I don't want to know.

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

I don't know and I don't want to know.

00:09:05--> 00:09:08

He said Omar I am ZW sana.

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

Omar said

00:09:11--> 00:09:59

the rabbi, the priest, the learned fellow. He said yes indeed. So Homer said, If you such a learned man, you represent a faith. You shouldn't be speaking things like this and making such provocative sentiments. He said, Omar, let me tell you I studied the biography of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And I closely monitored his moves. I was convinced beyond doubt. He is the final messenger. I had reservation into qualities. And I've actually come to test those two qualities. I read in the divine scriptures. Yes, boku mo Allahu Allah does he do * that Allah Allah He in halal

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

That his forbearance surpasses his anger. And the more you aggravate him, the more calm he becomes. The more you incite him, the more composed he becomes. Omar I have put it to trial and I am convinced that he is the Nabhi I don't want anything. I make you my witness. I am one of the most prominent people of Medina. I proclaim the kalama and half my wealth is in charity to bring in the cause of Islam

00:10:39--> 00:11:01

OCE, Hidaka Anusha, Rama Li sada cotton lil Islam, I make you my witness, that half of my wealth is a charity to Islam. What did it take to convince this person into the beauty of Islam? It was the forbearance of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:11:04--> 00:11:15

There are so many incidents in this regard that elucidate and expound the very same theory from a ribbon a Wahab let me share with you another narration.

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

This is a narration of Hakeem

00:11:20--> 00:11:37

I Sahabi by the name of Anil Kumar, the long run who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was very impressed with his eloquence he was very articulate in speech. Nabi sallallahu Sallam asked him who are you and where do you come from?

00:11:38--> 00:12:15

He said, We are seven in the group, and I am a Muslim, and all those with me are equal Muslims. So Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam said likkle nikoline Hata sama, former hockey cutter Mr. Nigam, there is a proof to every claim. How do you substantiate your claim? And this is what I often say. Today we have created many symbols amongst ourselves, by virtue of which we identify ourselves as Muslims. Ally hasn't endorsed these symbols as the reflection of Iman.

00:12:16--> 00:13:14

I don't know your but back home in South Africa. Many people have the 786 which is symbolic to Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. So many people would keep a mobile number of 786 a number plate is 786. A phone number is 786. And they appease themselves that I have reflected something by virtue of which society identifies with me as a Muslim. I'm saying this is not the grounds of which identification will take place in the court of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says what is the proof that you are a believer? He said we have 15 qualities. Come soon. Amara Tana Bihar, Hamsun Amara Tina Bihar rasuluh cumson, Taka, lacuna Bihar fija helia, one 100 la la la la an intern Hannah Yara Sula, la

00:13:15--> 00:13:59

five I heard direct from you. Five I heard from your messengers, and five were found in us from the very era of darkness. Unless you choose to prohibit us, we will then forsake it. But these were good qualities that were found in us from our ancient days and from our ancestry. we've inherited them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and explained to me which are the five that you heard direct from me? He said, Mr. Pena I mean, I've been lucky one mela equity he wanted to be he will, surely he will. He will. Surely you've instructed us to believe in Allah, His angels, the books, the prophets, and that good and bad fate comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Woman hermsen Lottie Amara

00:13:59--> 00:14:37

combi ha Rosalie and what are the five that my messengers have commanded you? He said, Amara, Tina Rosado and Masha Allah ilaha illallah wa niqab do or a pseudo one? Okay, masala tell mokuba when you add this one asuma Ramadan when a hot gel beta in esta la Sabina. We heard from your messages, that we should believe in the oneness of Allah in your finality, observe the prayers, discharge the charity, and perform the five daily prayers. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and what are those five that you had in you from the days of darkness? Now listen to these qualities.

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

This was found in the pagan Arab, even in the era of darkness. He said a shocker during the raha was sobre el Bella

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

Number one, we had this inherent in our teachings that we must be grateful in moments of prosperity.

00:15:08--> 00:15:28

a shocker during the raha was submarine del Bella, we must persevere and endure in moments of hardship and difficulty was say the coffee Mount lynnie Lika. And we must be honest and transparent when we deal with Muslims or non Muslims alike.

00:15:29--> 00:15:35

Now there is an amazing incident in VEDA when Nehemiah which is the works of Nicosia, Rahim Allah.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

He's made mention of the narration and I read it in detail.

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

When Hosea even a young man or young woman who was migrating from maka, maka, Rama to Madina, munawwara

00:15:49--> 00:16:01

and his migration coincided with the expedition of weather, which goes down as one of the most sacred campaigns in the annals of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:03--> 00:16:18

So Jose Farah, the Allahu anhu for the record, the confidant of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. His father Jamar radi Allahu anhu. Both father and son are migrating from Mecca to Medina.

00:16:19--> 00:16:30

On the way they were intercepted by Abuja Hall, who was also mobilizing his people and going to better in better what the prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:16:31--> 00:16:55

Abuja apprehends Jose for the Allahu anhu and he says no, we're not going to release you. Because if we release you, you will go to Medina join the Muslims become reinforcement for them against us. So basically we are contributing to our own destruction. Hence we will not release you.

00:16:56--> 00:17:44

Jose if I am a man pleads to him and says release us and we will not go in aid the Muslims and assist the Muslims. After much negotiation on the pre tax on the agreement that you will go to Medina you will not participate in the campaign I will release you He said it's a done deal. For a fine his father Amanda the Allahumma were released and they leave from Makkah and when they get to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is on the outskirts of Medina marching towards better and worse him other Sahaba so they come in they join Mr. O Prophet of Allah. Can we join you said yes. As the more walking Jose Pharaoh the Ilana said, Oh Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I would just like

00:17:44--> 00:18:20

to mention to you for the record, that as I was coming, I was apprehended by Abuja Hall. I was intercepted by Abuja Hall. And then after lengthy negotiations, he finally released me on the pretext that I will not assist you people in the battle, but I just said it to appease him Abuja Hall is the arch enemy of Islam. Can I join you? Read the narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hosea, you cannot join us. You gave Abu gehele your word you have to honor it.

00:18:24--> 00:18:37

Abu Jamal, the most proud man in this Omar, the fear out of this Omar, the man who had caused the greatest pain to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:18:38--> 00:19:10

What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say to Jose for the law? No, no, no, no. You promised a disbeliever you gave him a verbal contract. It's a binding contract. Honor your verbal commitments to whomsoever you make it. Whether it's Muhammad or Peter, you so forth. Thomas Ibrahim on john, Islam compels us that we honor our dealings when we deal in with fellow Muslims or fellow citizens or fellow humans.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

For the record,

00:19:15--> 00:19:42

those who participated in butter, the accolade, the merit, the privilege that they enjoy is so unique. Buhari Sharif second volume gibreel descends and he asked the Prophet sallallahu Salah mirtha or do not elaborate drean fie komiya Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how do you view the participants of whether

00:19:43--> 00:19:57

a prophet sallallahu Sallam said we grade them as the best amongst us? So there is a Badri, a participant of weather and there is a non participant, the one who participated surpasses a non participant by far

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

gibreel said to

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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Walker the leikam and shahida buttram Minal mela iica just as the participant of brother is more senior to the non participant in the very same breath and in the very same vein, the melodica that descended to aid the Sahaba. In better, those angels ranks superior to other angels who did not descend in butter.

00:20:27--> 00:21:09

So this the ranking is not only amongst the humans, this ranking is also amongst the melodica animam Buhari has mentioned a thorough Juma toolbar by chapter that if you take the names of those who participated in better and you make dua, Allah will accept your da. My point is, Jose for a man was a giant was a great Sahabi was the confidant of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but I'm afraid he does not enjoy the accolade and he does not enjoy the merit of being a participant of butter. Why because the word that he gave to Abuja Hall was binding.

00:21:14--> 00:21:19

All Muslim understand Muslim businessman when you interact with the broader world,

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

this is the time to exhibit exhibit the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:21:28--> 00:21:57

was said to Kofi Martini Lika. Honesty. What Turkish Amata? Bill mostly but either halat Bill de and what did al camara de la Juan Jose, what was the fifth quality that was found in us from the era of darkness. We never ever in our life, rejoice rejoiced over the pain. We never rejoice over the pain of even our enemies.

00:21:58--> 00:22:09

As as Arabs, it was inherent in us. We never rejoice on the pain of anyone, not even our enemies.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard this, he was moved.

00:22:16--> 00:22:30

We believe and I said it in many dogs. For us, every life is precious. The life of a Muslim is precious. The life of a non Muslim is precious. human life is precious.

00:22:32--> 00:22:40

Name. Today, there are animal campaigns, and people who speak about the rights of animals.

00:22:41--> 00:23:36

Hassan rhodiola and who passes a garden and an orchard. And he finds a slave sitting there. And he is busy feeding a dog and he's eating. And then the meal is left is a slice of bread. And the slave slices it in half. And he gives half the slice to the dog and half the slice of bread. He eats himself has an earlier long run who with a sense of morality, it was moved to tears. He said oh young man, dark skin. He was a slave. He said oh young man. What made you do what you did? You hungry? You poor? You need the food. Why did you split the bread in half and give half to the dog and ate half yourself? So this person said it's the hyena. I mean, I in a an OVA Bina Who? I looked

00:23:36--> 00:23:46

at hunger in the eyes of this dog, and I couldn't, I couldn't for the sake of me eat while another creature next to me, stares at me.

00:23:47--> 00:23:55

I couldn't look I couldn't look at an animal. I am saying Do we have those qualities?

00:23:57--> 00:24:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is walking. So one evening on a disbeliever he looks at the flock of sheep that has covered a valley and it belongs to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he's admiring his green with envy. Wow, that's so impressive.

00:24:18--> 00:24:21

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam sensed his envy.

00:24:22--> 00:24:29

He said your gebouw kamatera Do you like what you see? He said I love it.

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said then just don't love it in your thoughts heavy.

00:24:37--> 00:24:45

He said what? You know sometimes you read about these lottery winners, which is rather rare. When they when many of them die would shock.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

too good to be true.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

He said what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said you can take all this to I have the generous heart.

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

He took

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

The flock of sheep, one quality of generosity. He went to his nation who does believers, your comb asumu for our law he in Mohammedan, Yachty Hata and Maria hafele *er, oh my nation, I have embraced the faith. And I exhort you to embrace the faith, by Allah this man has not come to take your money he has come to give you his money.

00:25:29--> 00:25:39

By Allah this man has not come to take this quality of generosity, bring someone into Islam and his whole tribe

00:25:41--> 00:26:00

has and Rolando is moved by the generosity of this man he said hula men who slay value he said above northman while height and this orchard belongs to my master, he said, You sit here. These were people who had sentiments in them. These were people who had morality in them.

00:26:01--> 00:26:30

He goes to a barn. He said, Tell me, are you the master of so and so? He said, yes, that orchard belongs to you said yes. Tell me how much are you selling the slave in the mass the orchard for? He said an X amount. hasn't really Alanna gave him the price. Immediately. He returned back to that slave. He said your generosity has impressed me so much. I have purchased you from your master and by ally have liberated you. And this orchard is a gift to you.

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

Who will then not embrace the faith?

00:26:35--> 00:27:24

When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam heard these qualities from Al Kamara the Allahu anhu. What did he say? He said folk Aha. Oh Dabba Doo Yoku MBR min Hassan Salima Ashraf, aha, these are the jurists of my own. These are the authorities of my own. They possess the traits and the qualities of the prophets. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave a broad smile. He said you have 15 qualities. Let me give you another five to compliment it. And you take this 20 and then you have the good of both the world's love Tajima oma la Kowloon. Don't gather food, which you will never love to eat.

00:27:25--> 00:27:33

What takala hola de la scharoun and fear that Allah to whom is your return. Cabo FEMA la hit the sea rune and incline in the preparation of that day wherein you are going to dwell with eternity. The narration appears in sera Mustafa, one of the non Muslim captives of brother said, when the disbelievers were captured in brother, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said is those who build Osama Hydra one, one Proclamation.

00:28:22--> 00:28:32

Be kind when dealing with the captives. He said I literally seen as a captive, I ate better food than my master.

00:28:34--> 00:28:44

I was the prisoner I was the captain of my master ate one meal I ate too. So I said, you know what it looks like you the slave and I'm the master.

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

Why? Why this is said my Navy has given me directions I must deal gently with the disbelievers and in particular with the captives. So you will eat more than me and you will eat better than me.

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

On a ribbon, our hub and soft one evening Romania was sitting in the harem. And they were discussing

00:29:07--> 00:29:31

the challenges that we're facing the kurush post butter, but there was the blow to them. But there was a defeat, but there was a fall and they lost some very prominent high profile people the likes of Abu Jamal and others. So Safar Nibbana omega and omega Wahab was sitting in the harem Sharif and they were discussing this year, how can we empower ourselves how can we mobilize ourselves

00:29:33--> 00:29:41

so so far, you bring me I said, voila, he Murphy Lai Sheba whom since we lost these people, there's no more pleasure love in living

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

in this there's no pleasure in life. Or maybe never have said this. So so one evening, homie, I said to him, while long he Lola de una de una in de la Medina, la kibito ala Muhammad in Hata up to LA Who? You quite right

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

If it wasn't for my wife and children, which is my obstacle and the debts that I have, I would have gone, beheaded, executed and assassinated Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Now in no sorrow married, they will have said if the only obstacle is to attend to your family and your debts, then I'll take care of your family.

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

Early and I will settle your debts, go and kill this man and put an end to Islam.

00:30:25--> 00:30:39

So anyway, America is ready. He prepared his sword. Stefan said I'll take care of your family. And he leaves he leaves Makkah with the evil intention to come and assassinate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:30:40--> 00:30:51

And I will explain to you this is only the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in his character, who converted his would be assassins into his devout companions.

00:30:52--> 00:31:08

who converted his would be assassins into devout companions. Is there anybody else? Is there any other reformer in human history who has achieved this? It's the character of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:31:11--> 00:31:28

Anyway, America will have guns with his sword camouflaged the Sahaba was sitting in mustard a number we and they will cherish in their success in bother. These people were discussing their failure. The Muslims are rejoicing over their success.

00:31:30--> 00:31:43

So, Amara vilano looked and he said on webinar hub at the door, Omar sensed with his inner eye. The man has come with ulterior motives. He's not clean in his intention.

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

So he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Oprah Walla

Now visa Some said, Omar, leave him. Be polite with him. Be gentle with him. Be courteous with him. Nobody said Allah Allah wa sallam afforded him the common courtesy welcomed him into Masjid and nabawi. He then greeted in Abu sabaha which was the traditional Arab greeting which would equate Good morning, it was morning it would equate

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

you know a close translation would be good morning.

00:32:35--> 00:32:54

Nabi sallallahu Sallam said, Amen, amen Allah who beat the hatin he herramienta Yachty can we adhere to agenda as Muslims Allah has honored us with a very profound and a very rich greeting and a very wholesome greeting. We salute and greet by saying assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

Anyway, they got Chetan levy sallallahu wasallam said,

00:32:59--> 00:33:11

Omar, what brings you used to leave your family and come all the way to Medina? He said, My son has been captured by your people and I have come with the sole intention to negotiate the release of my son.

00:33:12--> 00:33:20

Now he's awesome said okay, that's fine. If you've come to negotiate the release of your son, what makes you bring a sword and weapons?

00:33:22--> 00:33:30

It's a nano sword is just a symbol of protection and self defense. It doesn't indicate war or resistance or fighting in any way

00:33:32--> 00:34:13

that we saw some said as a doctor, I may or may you want to tell me the truth and be honest. He said I swear to God the great I have no other objectives. Now Vla Sam then looked at him and said, omae just rewind you and someone was sitting in the harem safwan said there's no more pleasure after Abuja has died. Then you said if it wasn't for your wife and children you would have killed me then sufferance and we'll take care of your wife and settle your debts and you have come with the sword to kill me. He stood up and he said a shadow La ilaha illallah wa shadow and no Mohammed Abu or a pseudo ha the Umbro Nam Yahoo in honor was of one by Allah this was a private discreet gathering

00:34:13--> 00:34:22

between me and him. There was no third influence there. A divine being has informed you and there is a law. I've openly embraced the fate.

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

Neville sallallahu Sallam said, *ery Whoa, aha, come take your brother and now introduce him to Islam. Soon he was given the teachings of Islam, and he became the rich into Islam. He said well, la isla de mckernon jealous to fee Bill kufri in a genius fee bill Eamon, I will not leave any land on which I had walked as a disbeliever nor will I leave any land on which I set as a disbeliever but that I want to sit on that land and walk on that land as a believer now. So that if this

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

was to testify against me that a sinner a transgressor walked here. I'm optimistic from Allah the evidence will now be turned positive in my favor that a companion of Mohammed says Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has walked on my back. I'm saying, what was the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam samama was captured. He was brought into mastery another way. He was tied to one of the pillars.

00:35:29--> 00:35:52

Nobody saw some break the father Salah, walked out, looked at him and he said man in the chaos Oh, mama, mama, what do you have to offer? What's your take? What's up? He said in ductal ductal the domain we're in tonight. I'm Tony Hi, Marla Shakeel O Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam if you choose to execute me, my blood will not go cheap.

00:35:53--> 00:36:41

My nation will avenge my death. They will be a bloody warrior. They will be a skirmish, nebulae some lefty men when the next day he passes by he was tied to one of the pillars in the courtyard samama any change of intention. He said I hold my sentiments I said to you yesterday I repeated. If you negotiate a release, then you will be releasing a man who will remember your favors. And if you choose to kill, then my blood will not go free. Nebula is Salam said atellica samama are my Sahaba release to mama release him they release tomorrow for the alarm on home. He goes to a close by well in Madina munawwara he takes a bath and he comes back. He said by Allah three days ago when they

00:36:41--> 00:36:58

tied me to the speller I hated you the most. And by Allah before the third day the sun could set I love you the most and I want to embrace your faith and he embraces the faith and he takes the kalama I'm saying this was the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:36:59--> 00:37:07

on the occasion of brother, Nabi sallallahu wasallam his uncle above the Allahu anhu was not a Muslim at that time.

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

He was captured.

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

The answer had captured him. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a restless night because of his uncle.

00:37:19--> 00:37:26

nebulae Salatu was Salam said to Homer in the morning in Neelam Anam La La Jolla Gillian May Allah buzz

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

the entire night I have not slept because of my uncle abass.

00:37:33--> 00:37:47

So, Amara, the Alanna said Should I go to the answer and ask them to release him? Now bearing in mind he was not a Muslim he was captured later he embraced Islam. Nobody saw some said that will be great. That will be great if you could perhaps go and you know, negotiate this release.

00:37:49--> 00:38:11

So anyway, Amara the Alanna goes to the answer and says you will have captured the visa zankel would you people be kind enough to release him they said no he's a captain is a non Muslim is a you know warrior of the war we've captured him. So Omar the Alanna said for in Canada Rasulullah sallallahu. Merida, if I tell you unless Debbie's happiness lies in releasing him, they said then don't negotiate take him and go,

00:38:12--> 00:38:35

take him and go once they to us. Anyway, abus was brought in he was taken. He was a captive, his condition was not very good. In his physique and in his structure. He was very muscular. He was huge in size. He didn't have clothes he wasn't well clad. So Nabi sallallahu, wasallam gently just passed his gaze around to see if anybody has an added cloth to give to his uncle.

00:38:37--> 00:38:49

So the Sahaba were very well fully and they were very happy to offer but unfortunately, none of them in their size were of the stature of Abbas or the Allahu anhu. So none of them had anything.

00:38:50--> 00:39:31

Abdullah bin obey Benson was the leader of the mafia thing. He was massive in structure. He said, Oh Mohamed Salah ism if you want I will offer my shirt and I will give it to your uncle. Nobody sterilized him said I will appreciate that and it will mean a lot to me. He said Allison took the shirt of the leader of the Manasa T and gave it to his uncle abans for the Allahumma. If you want to read the academic discussion of this, it appears in the Tafseer in the Thames Jews in Surah Toba hosemann amwa Walla Walla phi the Minamata Abba don't wanna Takuma cabaret in nahoon cafaro biLlahi Barrasso Li woman to whom First of all,

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

there's a great write up there. It appears there in Maryville Quran in particular, that's where I found my point of reference.

00:39:40--> 00:39:56

Anyway, he was cleared with this particular shirt and for the moment his needs were attended two years later. Now the loving obey had caused enormous pain to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when I say enormous pain beyond imagination,

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

but his son Abdullah was a devout Sahabi

00:40:00--> 00:40:33

The father was the instigator, the key runner of the entire monastic movement. And the reason of his movement was prior to the coming of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to Medina, the people of Medina wanted to crown Him as the leader. And just then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, when he came, all focus went on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So he lost his position. When he lost his position. Then he started working from inside, and he created this inside movement. In English, they say

00:40:35--> 00:40:38

I love people who openly hate me.

00:40:40--> 00:40:46

I love people who openly hate me, but I hate people who pretend to love me.

00:40:48--> 00:41:03

I love people who openly hate me. If a man openly says he hates me I understand he's transparent, but I hate people who pretend to love me. Abdullah bin obey bin saloon were among those who pretended to love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:41:04--> 00:41:07

when he passed away his son Abdullah the Allahu anhu came

00:41:08--> 00:41:25

and he said, a prophet of Allah My father has died. He was a man of faith. He the Quran says the worst torment is for the monaka in Nelvana 15 a fedora kill us fanomena nury voluntad de de la la la de Nata boo, boo, boo boo.

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

Boo de la.

00:41:29--> 00:41:36

So anyway, he said oh prophet of Allah My father has passed away would you be kind enough to give us your gum?

00:41:38--> 00:41:44

The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam took out his blessing through his blessing gum.

00:41:45--> 00:41:54

And he gave it to Abdullah the Allahu anhu as a coffin to wrap the body of the leader of the moon African

00:41:56--> 00:42:05

scholars have given a detailed academic debate. To the extent Omar even objected over lava is a monarchy. What are you doing?

00:42:07--> 00:42:11

Libya is Samsung Omar leave me to do what I feel is correct. It's a long story.

00:42:14--> 00:43:12

In the tafsir, it is mentioned the vision of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam to Abdullah was that this man, this disbeliever was kind to my uncle Abbas on the occasion of brother, and he had given his piece of cloth. Now that he has died, I wanted to offset his favor. I wanted to acknowledge Him, that a disbeliever had displayed this kindness to me for on behalf of my uncle. Hence, in lieu of this, to reciprocate his good, I have given my blessed gubb And furthermore, he said, I am optimistic my gesture will make inroads for the people of his tribe to be attracted to the beauty of Islam. And it's written in my rifle Quran on this gesture of Nabi sallallahu wasallam where he gave

00:43:12--> 00:43:22

his blessing God to be the cuffin of Abdullah bin obey been cellule looking at this act alone, 1000 people accepted Islam

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

1000 people accepted Islam.

00:43:30--> 00:43:34

So, it is the it is the element of character

00:43:35--> 00:43:41

amongst the people with whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had showed phenomenal tolerance.

00:43:42--> 00:44:33

Have bourbon a sweat when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam migrated to Madina munawwara and then he made arrangements he made arrangements for his family to be brought to Medina and he asked his daughter, Zainab, who was his eldest daughter to come to Medina as well. She was pregnant while she left Macau on the back of a camel and she was coming to Medina and she left Makkah and she was going, the disbelievers spotted her. And they said, Isn't that the daughter of Mohammed? How can we leave her and don't harass her advanced towards her? So a bourbon us with advanced with a spear and a dagger, and he pierced it into the camel, causing the camel to collapse and Zainab rhodiola and

00:44:33--> 00:44:39

her to fall and it proved to be so faithful that her child was aborted.

00:44:41--> 00:44:44

Her child which was the grandchild of Muhammad Sallallahu, wasallam was aborted.

00:44:46--> 00:44:53

Her condition was not stable to resume her journey. She was returned back to Makkah and stabilized

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

and when she was somehow stabilized, she was then brought to Medina but for the record, and I'm

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Going into the detail I want to show you the character of Nabila. ceram two fellow non Muslims.

00:45:06--> 00:45:25

This very injury that she sustained in the journey of hijra proved to be fatal, and ultimately claimed her life in Medina as a result of this very same injury. It lived on whether it was nursed, it was treated, but but she never recovered. She never recovered. It continued.

00:45:27--> 00:45:57

When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had conquered Makkah, and he had given general amnesty in general pardon, but then he said few people will be executed due to the horrendous crime and the evil doings amongst them, he said is the murder of my daughter have barbin password and they can be no two opinions on the on the legitimacy and the justification to execute the murder of your daughter. They can be no two opinions on this.

00:45:58--> 00:46:11

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said general amnesty but there were few people and amongst them is a bourbon so due to the pain he has caused me, my grandchild passed away as a result and ultimately claimed the life of my own daughter.

00:46:13--> 00:46:24

Anyway, the prophets of Allah Islam issued this decree that wherever you see him, nabbing behead him and end him because he has killed my daughter and the Prophet says a masa teen in Makkah, mocha Rama This was after the conquest.

00:46:27--> 00:46:45

When he was sitting with the Sahaba have bourbon, a steward walks into the masjid, and he had covered himself savasana Viola is the murder of your daughter hotbar. They unsheath their swords. Can you imagine what must have happened to a man like Omar?

00:46:47--> 00:47:08

can you possibly end endeavored to imagine what must have been the emotions in the life of Omar who often would react to much more simpler situations. Whenever he come in, nebulae Salam said, allow him the courtesy to enter and give him an opportunity to speak.

00:47:10--> 00:47:14

Allow him the courtesy who the murderer of my daughter

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

who the murder of my daughter

00:47:19--> 00:47:23

he walks in generation is very long it's appears in sirata Mustafa

00:47:24--> 00:47:26

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:47:27--> 00:47:35

I don't have a face to look at you. I guess my very presence will refresh the memories of your daughter.

00:47:36--> 00:47:41

I guess my very existence will open up a very dull chapter.

00:47:42--> 00:48:36

You have rightly issued the command of my execution and I was on the verge of fleeing. But then someone whispered in my ears, that you are a man of phenomenal patience and tolerance to the extent that you will even give amnesty to the murder of your daughter wakad Samia Otto Silla taka warra Hi maka, I heard of your profound caliber, and I have come here and I am begging to kindly overlook my mistake. nebby Salah lolly was Sallam has said, I have forgiven you unconditionally. And he then looked at the Sahaba and said nobody should harass him because of his evil. I have forgiven him for what he has done. He openly proclaimed the kalama in the midst of the Sahaba

00:48:39--> 00:49:35

when I kurama the son of Abu Jamal was coming and Nabi sallallahu wasallam was informed. He said to the Sahaba at Comerica Rama to mock me Nan de Comerica Rama too much meenan fell at the soup bow above who for in a sub Bell by yet you they'll hi wanna yo bluehole a lesson Oh my Sahaba Rama the son of Abuja Hall will be coming shortly when he comes. Don't Don't team because of the evil of his late father Abou gehele don't incite him offend him insult him because of the wrong of his father. Why? Because abusing the DCS offends the loving and does not harm the dead.

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

Because abusing the disease offends the living. So I krama walks in not like Oh your son, your father. No, nobody selasa mad put restraint on the Sahaba he walks in nebulae ceram stands up to greet him the son of Abu Jamal, the man who had caused all the pain to intervene. salani was alone.

00:50:00--> 00:50:55

He then embraces Islam. In that gathering generation goes on to say, maybe la ceram may do for him Allahumma ferula who da da da da Neha Allahu McFerrin Oh colada within either Neha wakulla merci rinser e la mo the rain URI to bizarrely Cal mahseer it for a Nurik was a fella who mannella Mini me nothing fee what he Oh another Eva nanhu our La Jolla is a Chroma de Santa Babu johal you have given him Islam It is my to our forgive him for every nasty comment he has made against me or Islam.

00:50:55--> 00:51:00

what a man you are have only embraced the faith and you're showering me with such prayers.

00:51:02--> 00:51:08

It boils down to the key component of character. I often say I often say

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

as Muslims we have to become ambassadors have this faith.

00:51:15--> 00:51:22

And if for whatever reason we cannot become ambassadors, for Allah sake don't become obstacles to the faith.

00:51:24--> 00:52:00

If we cannot become ambassadors don't become obstacles. Don't give off the wrong notion. Remember my brother when you traveling? You interacting? You are one individual representing the broader Islam. more so in a hostile climate, where journalism often chooses to be bias and makes one Muslims actions, a reflection of Islam in its entirety. All the more we need to be conscious of the implications of our actions.

00:52:02--> 00:52:08

Am I not soil in the name of Islam? Am I not tarnishing the reputation of the Muslims?

00:52:10--> 00:52:14

On Miss Salma de la Juana, what a great woman.

00:52:17--> 00:52:20

The incidence is very long, I want to share one portion of it.

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

She says,

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

When I decided to leave Makkah.

00:52:28--> 00:52:30

And as we were exiting from Makkah,

00:52:32--> 00:52:36

my people came myself, my husband and my son.

00:52:38--> 00:52:54

So my tribe came to my husband and they said, you want to go? You can go but you will not take our daughter. That's your wife. So my wife, Elaine InDesign. And then they came in, they abducted me and they told my husband you can go and they pulled me aside.

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

Anyway, I was left one side.

00:52:59--> 00:53:34

And my husband had to go. When my husband's tribe seen this, they came and they said, Now that you've separated the men from this woman, that child represents our tribe, we won't leave the child with the mother. So they came to abduct my child. And my tribe say no, it is our child. somatoform yetta de buena Ebony baina whom my husband is gone. I'm on the outskirts of Makkah, my tribe and my husband's tribe both are actually pulling my child literally in front of me until they dislodged his whole arm.

00:53:36--> 00:53:37

And they took him

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

for FISA 18

00:53:41--> 00:54:00

for Rick to benei ouabain a zoji will be nominee in a matter of a minute My life was turned. We will live in as a happy family migrating to Medina and in a minute the whole thing turn and we see it sometimes it's an accident. Sometimes it's a tragedy. In a second your life can change forever.

00:54:01--> 00:54:04

One tragedy in the family and the life is never the same.

00:54:07--> 00:54:12

Anyway, they separated me from my husband and my child was taken one side.

00:54:15--> 00:54:20

And my son was kept away from me for one entire year.

00:54:22--> 00:55:00

Bertie to Allah Delica sanatan one entire year. After one year some people putted my condition and they said Allah to takuna Javi Hill, Sierra, Allah today Puna Hill, Sierra, why don't you people release this poor woman when you've separated from her husband, you've separated from a child, but he her and release her. So anyway, finally they said, okay, you can go. But she said, How can I go when I don't have my child. So someone then interceded on behalf of my husband's tribe, and they return my child to me after one year and seeing my child and the last moments and memories of my child was his arm was done.

00:55:32--> 00:55:36

and he said to me, Allah in Europe into the rocky

00:55:37--> 00:55:42

Mr. Mr. Where are you off to? I said, What do you do? Oh gee, Bill Medina. I want my husband in Medina.

00:55:43--> 00:56:03

So he said to me, Mama Aki. I don't you don't have anyone with you, sister. I said my family. I had one in La la buena, yada. I have no one. But Allah and my little baby. So osmani Panetta has said by Allah you are not alone. I am going to escort you from your right into Medina.

00:56:05--> 00:56:16

And he said she says he then accompanied me now we know the journey from Mecca to Medina on Camelback is a good few weeks, the desert the mountainous terrain, the heat, etc.

00:56:19--> 00:56:44

On my son Maria Lohan has said I had met many people in my life. I had met many men in my life. This was the first human I met listen to this and this is food for thought for every one of us here in particular the men. She said by a law from Makkah to Medina we travel for weeks. This man never set his gaze on me once.

00:56:46--> 00:56:50

This man never set his gaze on me once

00:56:51--> 00:56:58

you think No, because you're traveling in a flight and is a woman next to you and it's a 10 hour flight so you're a victim of circumstances

00:57:01--> 00:57:03

and might be a pleasant victim.

00:57:08--> 00:57:11

And at the same time, he was not hostile.

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

He was not hostile. She says

00:57:17--> 00:57:19

whenever it would be time to halt.

00:57:21--> 00:57:55

He would hold the reins. He would set the camera down for Ronnie he would move to the rear had to hurry when I would dismount. Tada who Ella shadow Ratan waka, Yahoo, Bihar. He would take the reins he would then tie it to a tree and then he would move away. I would sit under a tree with my baby he would sit and rest there. When it would be time to resume he would bring the animal sitting down next to me move aside again. She said diligently religiously. I watched this man he never looked at me once.

00:57:57--> 00:58:47

And this practice continued while masala yes Nairobi Delica Hata Bella Danelle Medina, he continued doing this year until we reach Madina. munawwara when we got to Medina, he said xo juki fee her the hill Korea. Oh the holy ha Allah Baraka Tila, our sister, your husband is in this locality. You can enter with the permission of Allah and with the help of Allah. He didn't wait for an acknowledgment. He didn't wait for a praise. He didn't wait for any monetary renumeration. He displayed this character and he went away. You think an action like this will go unrewarded in the eyes of Allah. You know, with your camera and my camera

00:58:47--> 00:58:57

and your civilians and my civilians and your technology and my technology. Sometimes there's a power outage and then he's gone. But the eye of Allah is always watching

00:58:59--> 00:59:30

this very act of ease. Allah brought that day that he was favored with Islam. And at the conquest of Makkah Nabi sallallahu Sallam called him and said Othman. I am interested in the key of the Kaaba to you. It will stay with you while you're alive, and it will remain in your progeny, multi omics. Till today, the key of the Kaaba remains in the descendants of Othman.

00:59:31--> 00:59:33

Othman even Ethel ha,

00:59:34--> 00:59:58

what it was this element of character. What did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tell Hakeem even a Hakeem even his arm was a very, very generous person. Even in his days before Islam, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him as lamonta Allah has left them in hiding. Your generosity as a non Muslim brought you into the fold of Islam.

01:00:00--> 01:00:42

So our topic and I'm speaking around it much has been said the key point that I'm hopping around for our key existence it is character that we have to display what they demand shaffir amatola essay called the matter comun womma maka remove home washer Coleman wall home fin See, too many people have died a physical death, but their character has kept them alive while others are physically alive, but they Evil has killed them before they physically die.

01:00:44--> 01:01:32

But they remain, shall we say? Casa mata caumon many people have physically died wama Matata mockery moon but their character loves with us It has kept them alive. And other people are physically alive. But they Evil has killed them before they physically die. The choice is yours, my brother? Do you want to live after your physical death? Or do you want people hope in your death while you are alive? Abdullah Abdullah Mubarak had a non Muslim neighbor. Abdullah Abner mobarak, Rama Talalay had a non Muslim neighbor. So he sold his house. He put it on the market. He asked an exorbitant amount

01:01:34--> 01:01:48

double the going rate. People said to him, how do you justify this amount? He said half the money is for the house and the other half of the money is for the privilege of being the neighbor of Abdullah bin Mubarak.

01:01:51--> 01:01:53

non Muslim neighbor selling his house.

01:01:55--> 01:01:59

Today, unfortunately, we says because of us maybe lose value.

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

Why? Because we haven't given any character.

01:02:06--> 01:02:31

When Abdullah Mubarak heard this, he was so humbled. He went to his non Muslim neighbor. He said, that was a very amazing gesture on your part. Could I perhaps invite you towards Islam? He said, Oh, Abdullah, your character made me embrace Islam the day you move next door. Your character has made me a Muslim the day you move next door.

01:02:34--> 01:02:36

So let us do some soul searching,

01:02:37--> 01:02:56

some serious introspection, in terms of how do we carry ourselves? How do we conduct ourselves in terms of our dealings? What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? He said, a person who dies while acquiring the sciences of Islam

01:02:58--> 01:03:15

is one below the prophets. A person who dies while acquiring the sciences of Islam is one below the prophets. But when it came to honest tradesmen, who fears align his business who's honest with his clients.

01:03:16--> 01:03:26

at third zero pseudo mana been, he said, the honest tradesmen when he dies, he's not below the profits is what the profits

01:03:27--> 01:03:37

is what the profits. If I've given someone my word, elevator to the union, whoever I am dealing with, I have to be honest with him.

01:03:39--> 01:04:09

There was some people that used to come to interview sallallahu wasallam and they were very, very harsh to him. And they used to speak to him with a forked tongue. They used to manipulate their words. They used to come and say Assam or honey Assam or LA ya da da Okay. Hi Yokohama Bhima Lemieux hi ecobee Hello, while you're colonna fi and for seeing him Luna you're on the moon Allah will be Monaco has boon Jehan pneumonia Sloane Ah ha. Mostly

01:04:11--> 01:04:27

what Elijah oka hi yo habima Lm yohei Kabila when they come to you and Mohamed Salah lrsm they greet you contrary to the greetings that Allah has invoked upon you. And they say that if he was a prophet, something would have happened to us. He's not a prophet, because nothing happens to us.

01:04:29--> 01:04:33

So they would come say a Somali which means may death come upon you.

01:04:34--> 01:04:36

I shall have Yolanda is to be very annoyed.

01:04:38--> 01:04:59

And she one day you said may death makers may destruction may ruination be upon you. Now vlsm said Ayesha Ayesha, don't you realize Allah loves gentleness on all occasions? Whenever you have a law but look at the audacity and the provocation maybe a solemn said But didn't you see my polite reply? I said why I lay

01:05:00--> 01:05:05

which essentially means whatever you are invoking upon me May the same be upon you.

01:05:07--> 01:05:52

Whatever you are invoking upon me May the very same be upon you. If you look at the commentary of this verse which I recited in the opening, the circumstances that prompted this revelation, walk only everybody Jaco, let me hear us and it's a verse of the 15 Jews of surah, Bani Israel. In this Allah subhanho wa Taala says, O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam say to my servants, they must be polite in their speech when speaking to non Muslims. The reason that it to my servants, but if you look at the background of this verse, Omar Ravi Alanna had an argument with a non Muslim, and in the interim, the voices were raised, and it became a bit ugly and loud, and there was a verbal

01:05:52--> 01:06:07

altercation and a verbal skirmish. And Allah revealed the verses. And the scholars say that these verses are exhorting us categorically to be polite in speech when speaking to non Muslims.

01:06:08--> 01:06:22

This is the beauty of Islam. I often say in interfaith dialogues, while many accused us to be narrow minded, and many say we are not tolerant.

01:06:23--> 01:06:26

Our faith is the most far reaching.

01:06:27--> 01:07:11

A Christian is a Christian if he believes in the Prophet Jesus peace be upon him. He does not have to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to be accepted as a member of his faith. And so it applies across the board as Muslims, I am not a Muslim till I don't believe in Messiah as a prophet of Allah. I'm not saying in Mohammed says, If I don't believe in resize the Prophet of Allah, I am not a Muslim. If I don't believe in Musa alayhis salam, as a prophet of Allah, I am not a Muslim. If I don't believe in the Torah and the Bible in its original, unadulterated form, I am not a Muslim. This is the encompassing teachings of Islam.

01:07:13--> 01:08:04

So it boils down to this common principle, this common principle of character and see throughout the times and the ages, how non Muslims lived within our lands. Amara Delano passes by a non Muslim who used to pay the indemnity taxes. So non Muslims that lived within the Muslim Empire had to pay indemnity taxes by virtue of which they enjoyed all the privileges. Alhambra home kalila Liliana well Kinsey Roland kashia Tiana, they were given freedom of religion and they were given freedom of their culture. Amara the Alanna passed by a non Muslim who was begging Amara the Alanna looked at him and said Ma and soften our Ma and stuff not as Muslims we are guilty we have given you a raw

01:08:04--> 01:08:04


01:08:06--> 01:08:30

Amara violante looks at this non Muslim and says as Muslims we are guilty. We have given you a raw deal of hudna min Cal jizya fee Shabaab ethic, we took Texas from you in your youth and your prime and now you dependent and you are liable in your old age. He then said to him, you will sit at home and our Treasury will take care of your needs till you die.

01:08:32--> 01:08:41

These were the teachings of Satan Amara the Allahu anhu Amara Yolanda is crossing the borders from Syria. He met the elderly woman on the border.

01:08:44--> 01:08:45


01:08:46--> 01:08:52

Amara Delano asked her Do you know her? She said I don't know him. I've heard about him but may Allah destroy him.

01:08:54--> 01:08:56

I've heard about him but may Allah destroy him.

01:08:58--> 01:09:09

So hamara the Alanna said but sister what what has Omar done, you're wrong. How is he defaulted you? If he claims to be a Muslim, and he claims to be the leader, he must take care of the citizens.

01:09:10--> 01:09:16

So she said to her, he was obviously you know, playing on behalf she didn't know she was talking to Omar.

01:09:17--> 01:09:39

Omar is sitting in the capital in the seat in Medina. How does Omar know what's happening on the borders of Syria? She said, Well, if he doesn't keep himself abreast of developments, and he doesn't keep himself up to speed with happenings, then he must dismount from his post. He must then take the post because the post entails this.

01:09:41--> 01:09:59

I'm saying my brother. Allah has given us this Deen it is a wholesome Deen it's an embrace in Deen. A comment I have heard from many reverts. It makes me cry. I by my nature, I'm always intrigued to sit with reverts and find out what

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

prompted them to Islam so that I can cherish what I have.

01:10:06--> 01:10:21

And I have in my humble travels met many non Muslim and I always enjoy it, what tempted you What inspired you What motivated you? And many reverts have told me this, and it has made me cry. And I'll leave you with these words.

01:10:24--> 01:10:34

He said to me, I am grateful to the Almighty, that I met Islam before meeting the Muslims.

01:10:36--> 01:10:56

What did this non Muslim reverse say to me, I am grateful to the Almighty. I met Islam, I read Islam before I met the Muslims. He went on to say, if my first interaction would have been the Muslims, I doubt I would have embraced the faith.

01:10:57--> 01:11:42

But I'm grateful to Allah, He led me to the pristine faith. He introduced me to the divine religion. Hence, when I seen the Muslim, I realize he does not reflect the true Islam. Now how through yet how painful, that's a sword piercing through our hearts, that we have defaulted in terms of reflecting our character, as neighbors, as businessmen, as fellow humans, as fellow citizens, as fellow creatures sharing a common planet on this earth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the tofik and the ability that we become exemplary Muslims, and we reflect Islam.

01:11:43--> 01:11:53

You know, I know much time has been taken, I just want to share a thought comes to my mind. And this is something perhaps it might be important that I conclude on

01:11:55--> 01:11:59

when you study the journey of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. to Medina.

01:12:00--> 01:12:29

This was not a journey, when he was inviting people understand this point that I'm saying, this was not a journey, he was inviting people. He left under very, very secret conditions, because there was a warrant against him. So in a very camouflaged way in the dead of night, in the cover of dark, disguising himself, a yet who ever he met, they just started accepting Islam.

01:12:30--> 01:12:47

Now, what's my point? You're going to China for business, you're going somewhere else for holiday, your character is supposed to be such, whether you are in France, for business or in Dubai for a holiday, whoever comes close to you have to be attracted to this magnet.

01:12:49--> 01:12:53

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going, and Soraka

01:12:55--> 01:13:06

who heard that the disbelievers had put the price of 100 camels for the head of NaVi la Salaam is that when I heard this, I was so tempted, I said, if I can get this deal 100 camels it will take care of my whole family.

01:13:07--> 01:13:20

So somebody came and said, Hey, you know what? I seen Muhammad going that way in horseman, that's him. I said, No, no, cannot be him. And I deliberately played it down because I didn't want this man to pursue you. said I want to go for it.

01:13:21--> 01:13:47

So I said no, it can never be Mohammed. Anyway, when that man left, I told my slave go take my horse and meet me outside MCI want to go, I mounted onto my horse. And I started galloping it at its space. And now Vla, salaam Abubakar ami rybnik O'Hara, Erica, one was the guide and with them this Sahaba were traveling in the dead of night they taking shelter and moving. And the Vla Samson Soraka coming at the rear.

01:13:48--> 01:13:55

So NaVi la salatu wa sallam just turn his blessing gaze and he looked at Soraka and the earth split, and he's all started sinking.

01:13:58--> 01:14:12

He realized this was the effect of the eye of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, Oh Muhammad, forgive me, a man who wants to intercept you how you're going to forgive him. Or Muhammad, forgive me. Maybe I Sam said, Okay, I have forgiven you. He's always comes back to the earth.

01:14:14--> 01:14:15

But you know, the temptation of evil.

01:14:16--> 01:14:39

Unfortunately, I am guilty of it. And so are you my brother? You got involved in an illicit relation. You burnt your fingers. You missed your marriage. You made Toba and a week pass and again, the very urge comes in and you find you succumb to that same evil. You burnt your hands. Soraka said okay, I'm gonna leave. But then he said 100 camels when I can leave this

01:14:40--> 01:14:42

undred camels winners know when to stop.

01:14:44--> 01:15:00

So he said let me try again. So he puts chase again behind the Vla Salam. And he comes at once in a while a son turns his gaze and it drops and it sings. Or Muhammad Forgive me. Now really sound smiles and he says okay, Soraka forgiven you unconditionally.

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

The man who wants to intercept him for the sake of 100 camels.

01:15:05--> 01:15:06

I have forgiven you.

01:15:09--> 01:15:31

This happens for the third time he's tempted. And he does it the same. And he's all starts sinking. Then he realizes, you know what? Leave the 100 camels I'll lose this one was also the Android cameras. That's that's a long vision. This one was he's also going to go He said, Oh, Mohammed, hands up, ends up Can I come close to your own or hug you and embrace your faith?

01:15:33--> 01:16:11

Hands up, I'm not coming to kill you. I cannot I am convinced. Now Vla Sam said Okay, come they stop in the journey of hatred on a very peculiar uncommon road because the intelligence was against nebulae salam, they stop. He meets Nabi la Salatu was Salam and said, Oh, Muhammad SAW some right that you have given me amnesty and protection. Now vlsm rights tells me rybnik O'Hara, whatever was available was described, right, we've given him peace. He offers to NaVi salatu salam, whatever food he had for the remaining part of the journey. nebulae Sam said, No, that's fine. We are taken care of in terms of our food. But one thing you can do is if anybody is trying to locate us and put in a

01:16:11--> 01:16:56

chase behind us, then just you know what, move them away from us. He said I will do this. embraces the faith embraces the faith, come in 400 cameras and leaves as a Muslim leaves as a Muslim comes back goes to who Abu Jamal, Abba hockman voila, Halo Quinta shahida Lee Ambridge our the Java mo alimta.

01:16:56--> 01:17:40

ground by a lion he forgave me on every instance. I was moved to tears and humbled by his apology. I've accepted the faith. By invite you also to the faith he leaves you regret on the day of the Yama. They go from there they come to the house of Omar but my point here is, this was not a dedicated journey of inviting these were, by the way developments that was happening. Nobody says and didn't call Soraka. You're not going in the path of Allah, you are going on travel. But your character ought to be such whoever comes close to you must be attracted. You sit in a plane, the man must feel the presence of a man. You walk into a client's place you walk into a business venture,

01:17:40--> 01:17:47

you sit down you take a last name, you conduct yourself with ethics and morals. The man comes and asks you what is the beauty of Islam?

01:17:48--> 01:17:52

amaravati Alon animism goes to the house of Omar but

01:17:53--> 01:18:20

they were very hungry on this journey. The food was exhausted. The provisions were depleted. Nobody saw some said Omar but could you give us some milk from your goats? She said I don't have the visa Some said there is a goat in the rear there. Can I take that goat? She said here Jerome indolic that goat is on the verge of death. You're not going to get anything out of it. Let me say something okay, if you just give me consent, how to milk it that I'll do. You just allow me she said COVID you're going to it's a futile exercise, but

01:18:21--> 01:18:27

it's your luck. Maybe some sat down read Bismillah gently stroked the other end the vessel was Brahmin

01:18:28--> 01:18:35

Oh, my mother said I started looking like is this my goat? When did this happen? And how did this happen?

01:18:36--> 01:18:51

Fill the vessel Nabi sallallahu Sallam first gave it to him Robert gave it to her. Then nobody says unfilled another vessel he drank gave all the companions everyone. Nobody sallallahu wasallam said this and he left. The husband returns in the evening.

01:18:53--> 01:19:16

Oh, my wife was the smoke and where's this? This goat from? It's just so much milk and all this How did this happen? So she said there have been some strangers making their way from Mecca to Medina. And they stop here. This is what happened. So the husband said this looks like the very Qureshi man. The Qureshi Prophet, I'm telling you, this is him. If these are his blessings, what's the delay let's embrace the faith.

01:19:17--> 01:20:00

So my mother and her husband both embrace Islam. My mother and her husband both embrace Islam, and Allah marsudi has made mention of the Arabic couplets which are phenomenal. It's time consuming. Just a la hora buenas Hira. jazza he, Rafi tiny holla a mighty Muhammad in Houma. naza la bella Buddha that be for confirming amsa Rafi mohammedi, Leah honey Ababa crianza to judge de BIE soccabet he may use it La Jolla Sadie Leah honey bunny cobbin mahkamah fatality him omaka Mini Nabi Manasa de cielo de como de como una Eva for integral

01:20:00--> 01:20:36

In the solution, ready, amazing couplets. But one particular thing that I would like to highlight a poet set this year, describing this whole tale of Nebula isms profound impact on this couple and how they embrace Islam. The poet goes on to say, Go ask this woman about the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how she reverted to Islam. And the poet goes on to say if you get to the house and Ahmed is not there, then you can ask the goat the goat will tell you who Muhammad was cielo

01:20:37--> 01:21:00

inner, for in Tacoma in Lucia Shadi, one more incident and our wrap up, they move ahead from there. barreda salami comes I'm sharing with you three incidents in the journey of hatred. These were people who had their own agendas they accepted Islam barreda salami comes with 70 people and they m bush Nabi sallallahu wasallam

01:21:01--> 01:21:42

let me saw some is very common relax. Initially he had some bodyguards around him Allah revealed the verse, your your rossano bellisima own Zilla la cama rahbek ye lambda alpha mobile la Teresa la de la jolla similkameen and Allah will protect you from the people who didn't release them of their duties and he said Allah said he will take care of me so I don't need anyone around me in any way. Breda salami comes with 70 people to ambush Nabi sallallahu sallam, they come in very close to Medina nahi Salah Sierra Mustafa is the narration NaVi Sara lorrison said Who are you? He said barreda A salami. Now if you study the life of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam he was one who would deduce

01:21:42--> 01:22:24

good omens in Islam, there's no superstition, there's no bad omens. But nobody says some would often deduce good meanings from situations. By way of example, when they had the negotiations of the peace treaty in Abia and Makkah, and there was a deadlock and they just couldn't break through. And one of the envoys who came to negotiate was a person by the name of Sol. Sol in Arabic means ease, comfort. Nobody says instead, what's your name? he said. So now he says himself, okay. Now ease has come into the matter. So this was a common practice if somebody had a good name, or there was a good indication that nobody saw some would latch on to this and extend its meaning. So barreda in Arabic

01:22:24--> 01:22:33

means to be cool to be chilled. Let me say some said What's your name? Boy, what's your name is that barreda? 70 ambush him to kill him.

01:22:34--> 01:22:40

He looked at Abubakar he said Baroda. morona is Beretta so that means our matters are cooled and relaxed.

01:22:41--> 01:22:43

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

01:22:46--> 01:23:12

from which tribe do you come? He said mean a slum in Arabic Islam means it could either mean peaceful could mean one that submit good means one that enjoys safety from which tribe do you come he said mean Aslam? lamesa Some said Salim na then we are safe. Then we are safe. Psychology, diplomacy, interaction, sometimes the literal approach, what was the vision of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

01:23:13--> 01:23:55

Nobody saw some said from which branch of Islam. Now it's already reducing the tension. The hostility levels are coming down. The tension is breaking the ice is melting in rows have been made. m Bush to assassinate 70 from which tribe from which branch of the Muslim tribe? He said Min benissa min. Sam in Arabic could mean arrow or it could mean sure if you understood the Arabic you'd appreciate the dialogue much more better. So it means share or arrow. Nobody saw some latched on to the meaning of share. And he said hora just saw mocha. You mean you come from bunny Sam which means share. So I guess you also have a Shane Islam then

01:23:56--> 01:24:02

barreda and his 70 people are melted and they read kalama they before they enter Medina.

01:24:03--> 01:24:10

They say to nebulae Sam can we fought form part of the convoy escorts you into Medina?

01:24:12--> 01:24:55

Can we form part of the convoy? When they get to Medina, the people of Medina don't know they say oh, these people are all coming with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam only to know these were the 17 who ambushed him with the intention to assassinate him. But the profound character of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam converted his would be assassins into his bodyguards. Then Beretta said have you ever like can we create a bit of effect now he's awesome said take your spear and mitre when and that's a perfect flag. And the 17 escort Navy la Salatu was Salam into Medina. What did I say to you, my brother and my sister. These were not dedicated opportunities, but this magnetic person was

01:24:55--> 01:24:59

such that anybody came into contact with the teachings of Muhammad

01:25:00--> 01:25:44

sallallahu wasallam with the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, immediately there was this profound impact. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us that through loving example, that we can manifest we embody, we exhibit, we discharge we deliver we convey we present, we articulate verbally and bodily. The noble character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah bless bless the planet, may Allah bless this country and the the good that the Muslims and others enjoy your And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy that we can co exist with all other humans and creatures on this planet where Allah has put us for a period of time Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi
