Bismillah salatu salam ala rasulillah in Salalah alayhi wa sallam we're back. We continue with our series on the Syrah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, more specifically his interaction with fellow non Muslims. There is a verse in the 15 Jews of the Quran in surah Bani Israel in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says what only Hi buddy Gulati here x and O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam couldn't say everybody to my servants yaku they should utter allottee that he acid which is good which is correct, which is noble, in the shape Bonanza bobino Verily, the nature of the devil is he creates discord amongst them he creates a quarrel amongst them he ignites a feud amongst them

00:01:03--> 00:01:49

in the shape on the candidate in sunny Medina, the devil is an open enemy unto men. In the backdrop of this ayah the Shannon newzoo, which prompted the revelation as captured by Imam Abu Dhabi and other scholars of the field is that say the naramata the Allahu anhu had an argument and an altercation with a fellow non Muslim and some unpleasant words were exchanged, and say the naramata the Allahu anhu intended retorting in a like manner, and the revelation of these verses then intervene and and prohibited him and the entire oma that do not do not retort in a like manner. Why it is because of one statement, the devil exploits it abuses, it creates an argument and then it can

00:01:49--> 00:02:36

become a feud, a skirmish and a full blown, you know, battle can be fought between tribes because of something petty and something that was taken out of context. So I'm I'm going to be Rahim Allah writes that these verses impress upon the believer politeness of speech to fellow non Muslims. So as a general rule, Islam tells us in all regards, be polite. guard your tongue, harness your tongue, take care of your tongue, don't say things that would hurt any person. There are so many a Hadith of the messenger sallallahu wasallam in this regard, but this verse is specific, exclusive impressing upon the believer politeness of speech to fellow non Muslims. We move further and we look into the

00:02:36--> 00:03:23

spirit of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we will find an absolute manifestation of politeness of speech to one and all, regardless of the provocation of the opponent or the opposition woman, German Ilhan Omar and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kenny istemi Rue de la Mohali V, that the beauty of the dialogue of the messenger sallallahu Sallam was that he would listen attentively to his opponent, even if the opponent's proposal was nonsensical, was nonsensical. So yeah, we have a tail captured in the books of Hadith that a disbeliever by the name of Earth by Eben Urbina. Well who were you Sir, we mo Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah Islami, that he

00:03:23--> 00:04:00

comes to negotiate with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to abandon Islam. I mean, this is the proposal he comes, listen, I need to talk to you. I need to have a sit down with you. I need to have a meeting with you. And what's the proposal? What's the sit down? What's the thinking? What's the brainstorming? What does he propose? You need to back off from your religion and this is the kind of sentiments but look at the composure that calmness, the tolerance, the forbearance, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam has and interacts with him. So he comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he says in the data tomeka be ambreen Avi min for lucky to be here

00:04:00--> 00:04:02

tomorrow at the home safavi Allah whom

00:04:04--> 00:04:37

to whom Medina home worker for TV mama bombing him for smart Mini, Alico murah that listen, oh Mohammed, we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you've come to your nation with a foreign religion with something unheard of right as the disbelievers objected. Jawaharlal Anahata, Ilan Hanwha Haida in Russia on our job, has he condensed all the 360 Gods into one, this is peculiar, this is strange, this is unheard of, for the beginning Janata whom suffer allama whom,

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

Dino whom you've created division and dissension. You have maligned the gods you have created discord amongst them. And you have proven their ancestors to be wrong who died on on idolatry and polytheism. So why don't you listen to me I have some proposals to make to you. I have some proposals to make to you, the messenger sallallaahu

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Elena's lm says kuliah Ebell rallied as smart. Okay, I wouldn't really go for it Say what you want to I am all yours. I am listening to your.

00:05:11--> 00:05:53

Now this was such a provocative dialogue. This was so it was it was it was provocative. He was inciting rage. He was saying things that were offensive to the messenger sallallahu wasallam he was not courteous he was not cordial. He was not diplomatic. It was not euphemistic, yet the messenger sallallahu wasallam. As we said Ming Jeeva Lin, Ming Jamal, haywire and the Rasul Allah Himself Allah Allah this uncanny yestermorrow illa Maha Lee, he would listen to his opponents. He said polio eventually asthma say what you need to say I'm listening. So what does he then say to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in contain amatory to be magic. tamina has an emery mala Jama.

00:05:55--> 00:06:32

Alana had the Guna Elena Qureshi, mala? Listen, what do you want? You've come here, you've started this new religion you promoting this year? What's your motive? What's your aim? What's your vision behind this? You want wealth because that's how the world is today. People you know, chant a slogan, but they have a a hidden agenda. They have some other intentions behind it, cutting metal hapten or either being held battle. Sometimes it's a noble slogan with an evil agenda. So he thought that the messenger sallallahu wasallam is one of the regular people who've come with some ulterior motives or have some other hidden plans. He said, What's your aim is your aim to become wealthy. If that's the

00:06:32--> 00:07:14

case, stop your mission. We will get our wealth and we'll give it to you and make you rich and make you the most affluent person in content. Number two, read up Mulliken. moluccana kaleena.

loser which gratia we will select the best and the most beautiful woman that you want. I mean, look at the kind of language is throwing out to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whatever you want, we will give it to you. The messenger sallallahu Sallam did not interject he was not harsh. He was not hostile. He was not obscene. He was not, you know aggressive. When when occupy even ever been bullied as his kunia was had concluded his proposal and his dialogue. The messenger sallallahu Sallam said to him for all the time eventually bullied Have you said what you needed to say? He said yes. So the messenger sallallahu Sallam said I gave you an a urine? I asked you give me a urine.

00:07:57--> 00:08:44

Wow. Wow. That's why I said those that will argue contrary to this year. It's due to either bigotry or a cursory glance. Anyone who is neutral, impartial, and doesn't have baggage or doesn't have any bias, you know sentiments in him and has an in depth view of the Quran and Sunnah. Looking at the verses and the rich Sierra and the impeccable character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He will understand the holistic teachings of Islam. So the messengers a lot is and said, well, we'll eat Are you done? And he said, Yes, the messengers alized him said listen to me. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited the Quran. I cannot imagine not describe that richness that the messenger

00:08:44--> 00:09:18

sallallahu Sallam is read in Quran we ever heard of many days of the non Muslim kings and rulers that cried when the late Shahab Debussy Rahim Allah had recited the Quran, in the opening assembly in the parliament, in the presence of non Muslims, and they will move to tears The beauty of the Quran the melodious recitation of the great party Rahim Allah. Can you imagine the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself reciting Quran and he recited the verses of the 24th of June Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, Jaime,

The prophets came with clear miracles for our do a DMV of why him but they denied the message and they they objected and they refuse the message of the profits. And as the messenger sallallahu Sallam was reciting, there was a transformation taking place in in artha, Abner obeah he was an Arab, he's listening to the Arabic The beauty, the eloquence, the profound nature of the Quran recited by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the absolute

00:10:45--> 00:11:31

passion of the guidance of Allah Willie. And he then he then returns he then returns and as he comes back to his people, his people say to each other as they seem a bit worried come in. They say that you know what Abu Walid is returned in with a different phase to what he went. When he left us here, the vision, the commitment with which he went, he looks very changed and transformed. And he says, Listen, I went to this man, and I heard his speech. And I can swear by Allah voila, he mess me up to mithila who cut to one lucky man who will be shipped but he will not be sorry when I build Ghana. I have never heard more eloquent speech. This is not poetry. This is not sorcery and he is no fortune

And if if you are blind, you will see that Allah will give you prosperity. And what did they say Sahara Kahala? He eventually will Isn't he overlaid? It looks like he has cast a spell on you with his prolific speech. So his plan has mesmerized you and you've been also bought over and you've also been affected by the influence of his message. But we learn from this the tolerance of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Look at the case of Abu sufian. right this is a tale that we need to understand in a detailed context. So Abu sufian

00:12:19--> 00:13:01

ultimately at the Congress of Mecca accepts Islam. He is the father in law of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the years to come. Because on Mojave barra de la Miranda is the wife of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is the daughter of Abu sufian. Abu sufian son is more are We are the Allahu anhu is the brother in law of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But Abu sufian himself was the leader of every anti Islamic campaign right up to the conquest of Mecca. He was the he was spearheading. He was in charge he was in control lahmacun Abu sufian La Jolla Nadia Minh Ricciardi to raise Latina who can Amina region in Malibu de la Vina usado la him bill hikmah with

00:13:01--> 00:13:48

personal tiada he was not a regular person. He was a man of prominence. He was a man of leadership, and people would turn to him for guidance and direction that was the personality of Abu sufian. In in the campaign of better in the campaign of better put in a submarine amine Sana de de Qureshi. 70 of the leaders of courage had lost their lives 70 of the leaders so this was a big blow to the morale of the disbelievers woman some legitimate aspiration allari Assa t Abby sofian Lucha de Cali Bhutto, Neha wafu Arena and it was posed the the campaign of better that they united their resources. They pooled their resources, and under the leadership of Abu Sufyan under the leadership

00:13:48--> 00:14:00

of abuse of yarn, they then launched a very fierce and ferocious attack against the Muslims in different ways. But we will speak about this as well as we move forward.

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

What can I do Han Bala pudukottai Luffy bedroom.

00:14:06--> 00:14:47

Mercado, Sera fossa, Daddy Kofi Atlanta he will be here. So two things happen amongst others in the campaign of whether Abou soufiane who is now nominated as the leader, but I'm going to explain how tolerant the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was with Abu sufian and this is, you know, speaking on different different disbelievers, the messengers and Allison's interaction. So in better apart from 17 leaders losing their lives, which was a blow to the morale of the disbelievers Abu sufian his son handler had also lost his life. He had lost his life at the hands of the Muslims so that was an added blow to him and his other son amor was captured by the Muslims was captured by the Muslims.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

And I just have a flash now right? If you look at the capitals of battle amongst the capitals of whether was a bola asked when Robbie, who was the son in law of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Where did

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

To his eldest daughters a number of the a lot of but was not a Muslim at that time. He himself narrates that we would captives at the hands of the Muslims can do Yami Luna William schoon, the our Muslim masters used to make us arrive there conveyances and then they used to walk, understand this here, we capitals. My master is a Muslim, my master would walk and he would tell me to write the conveyance. When food would come to them, they would eat the inferior and give us the superior. So we even asked them, you know what outwardly if somebody looks, it would appear to the onlooker that I am the master and you the slave is that the messenger sallallahu Sallam said to us is those who

00:15:41--> 00:16:28

will hire all these captives are in your custody, treat them with gentleness and with mercy and kindness. We see how many humans Muslims and otherwise other individuals that are languishing in jails innocently, and the brutality that is meted out against them. And then when you contrast that with the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how can someone arrive at the conclusion that this is the faith that perpetuates hostility and resentment and dislike to disbelievers? It's absolutely absurd and bizarre and ludicrous. So maxima Abu sufian ella yamasa Houma Minh Geneva Hata yo Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:30--> 00:17:14

This had enraged Abu Sufyan and he had almost vowed that he would not be intimate with his spouse until he does not avenge and take revenge from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the noble companions so then came the campaign have offered then came the campaign of automechanika horrible Sophia Yoko de la Santa Ana mushrik they had a bill muslimeen he comes with an army of 3000 and again the car is the mo harig. The leader the army the person in charge was none other than Abu sufian what katella Abu sufian Yamaha cell metab Vanessa bit what Tila in the hula the patella Han Viola Rasul Allah aka wa Taala Han Viola behala. On that day of offroad It was about soufiane in his

00:17:14--> 00:17:57

anger and his rage that he had claimed the life of the great Sahaba sama bin thermotropic Allahu anhu. And some narrations also suggests that it was Abu sufian who had killed hon Valera, the Alon, we all know who handler was the senior Mullah aka the person who was given to sell by the melodica given who sell by the Mullah aka, there is an amazing duration in which the O's and the hazaragi tribe boast about the privileges that Allah had given them post Islam and they said min nominators Allahu wa Salatu was Salam ala ik Amina Mohammed de Moura asimina Sabbath minimum and he said Shahada to be Shahada Raja lane that we have for people amongst us that you people don't have the

00:17:57--> 00:18:35

old stripe set to the 100 because prior to Islam, there was the rivalry and after Islam, it was now boasting on this spiritual feat and accomplishment because now the lenses have changed. Now the the aspect of vine was not in material but was in spiritual things. And Allah says this in the Quran. limini has a friendly family, I am alone or phenolic affiliated FSL mattina. So it is in the matters of faith that you should vibe with each other. So the old stripe said min nominators Allahu LaRoche we have amongst Assad bin Muhammad, he is the only companion regarding whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, la parte de Rahman lemo decide that because of the demands of sod. The Throne of Allah

00:18:35--> 00:19:16

has come into motion mean as a single mother aka we have Hans Allah, who after his death the angels gave him go sell Mina man hamato Deborah, we have that a debt companion that post his demise a swarm of bees had covered his entire body that was asking me Vanessa, the Allahu anhu because the disbelievers wanted to lay their hands on his body and mutilated and degraded. So he said Allah don't give them access. So Allah sent a swarm of bees that covered an envelope and in that way, his body was protected. Minimum and oh geez, that Shahada to be Shahada to julaine and we have that person whose testimony suffice for two and that was Jose magnetometer and sorry about the aligner

00:19:16--> 00:19:57

and there's a detail account to it. You know, it's it's a topic of its own. And then the husband said Mr. Barton, Jamal Al Quran, we have four amongst us who are responsible for the compiling of the Quran. So anyway, let's see what Amala eco simulation suggests that Abu sufian had killed hands a lot of the alarm, and he said, I have killed hands Allah in lieu of my son Hans Allah that was killed. So you could see that the rage of Abu sufian was continuing one after the other. Then on in the in the campaign of aha demon Buhari makes mention of the narration, that in his anger and his rage, he comes to the gathering of the believers and he says, I feel called me Muhammad Sallallahu

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

wasallam is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam alive?

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

Present easy among you.

00:20:02--> 00:20:17

For now who would never use Allah they will send them a huge boon. And he says some said don't reply, don't reply. So then he said, Everyone call me even though, however, is Abubakar amanzi people, nobody says him said don't reply, don't reply three times. Then he said, he'll call me

00:20:18--> 00:20:20

tomorrow, he's already

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

present amongst you.

00:20:23--> 00:21:07

So when he got no reply, he said, I'ma holla at you, or looks like your profit is gone, the second in charge is gone, the third in charge is gone. So then you are defeated. So said, Narmada, the olana could not contain himself I'm building up to understand and to explain the tolerance. The Prophet says in the head with one one disbeliever and how polite cordial and kind he was. Just to appreciate the hostility from Abu sufian but ultimately, he melts at the beauty and the tolerance of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. So Omar Rolando says, I do a lot in the living area of enemy of Allah, you speak in a line and you deceiving yourself with the grace of Allah all those that you

00:21:07--> 00:21:28

counted, our ally, Mohammed Salim is alive, Abubakar is alive and I am alive. So then he said, Your mum beyond the bedroom because the Muslim suffered a bit of a setback and it was quite challenging in the campaign of so he said today in view of that day, and then he said, I'll herbicidal right things go around. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you on the up and sometimes down in the concept that you don't have he'll call me Muslim.

00:21:29--> 00:21:47

When I'm testimony, you will find that the cause of your disease has been mutilated. For the record. I did not advocate for the mutilation of those corpses, but it doesn't depress me if you see the bodies have been mutilated. Tough luck, you will have to live with it. This was the way he was inciting anger into the Muslims. And then he started singing.

00:21:49--> 00:22:35

He said Oh, no hobo. hobo May our idle hobo be prospered May he be glorified me he'd be honored. So the messenger sallallahu Sallam said, Why don't you people also reply and respond. Now again, it's in the foot of anger and rage. It's the midst of a battle. It's intense. It's ferocious, there's this dislike this this resentment, but the response and the the manner in which the prophets allies and teaches them has to be calculated. So what does he say? He tells him say, Allahu Allah, Allah is more great and more exalted. So then Abu Abu sufian says London Rosa, voila Rosanna we have Rosa for a tomar la tavola zamana Lisa De La Crosse orders I was one of the great gods. We have Rosa and you

00:22:35--> 00:23:16

have no Rosa. So nobody said Alison said why don't you reply. So the Sahaba said, what do we reply? He says say Allahu Mola Mola, Allah, Allah is our Creator and our guardian and our sustainer and you don't believe in Allah so you don't have that? So this continues, this continues. And in this battle, unfortunately, the likes of say that our hands out of the Allahu anhu will be higher than they were used to hear Abu sufian or vaibhavi mahathat official hadda mean Tashi hindlimb agisoft Vata clearing lil as on that in that there was mutilation of the body there was mutilation of the body but he persevered it. You know, he was he was happy with it and he kept on you know, speaking

00:23:16--> 00:23:56

about this young days move on, and Islam starts growing and things start changing. And abou Sofia now finds himself in a much weaker position. And then comes the army of the messenger sallallahu wasallam into mocha, mocha Rama, a large, huge army. And now Abu Sufyan sees that there's no power to challenge and then a bunch of the Allahu anhu says to Abu sufian that income hop on to my convenience and come with me had to add the bigger Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam amino Holika and then I'll ask the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to give you refuge and amnesty, the messenger sallallahu Sallam enters mocha mocha Rama. He is the ruler he is the father. Nobody can challenge

00:23:56--> 00:24:16

him. Abu sufian had opposed him constantly and abus comes to the messenger sallallahu wasallam and he says oh prophet of Allah give about Sophia and safety. He said who I am in Abu sufian is safe. I will Sofia and he is safe. And then the narration goes on, ventilation goes on. And our bus lovely Ilana says oh prophet of Allah in Abba Sofia.

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

Abu sufian is a man who loves prominence. He was a leader all his life. Why don't we make him prominent, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when da da da da v Sophia and for who amin Abu Sufyan is safe. And anybody who takes amnesty under the wings of Abu Sufyan is save a love Akbar. And then he comes before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and this very hostile infidel says and we conclude on this note, he says my Allah Miko, economical Osaka or prophet Allah, you are just too amazing. I have no room or space but to accept your faith, and then he recites the kalama the messenger sallallahu Sallam says Allah and Elijah and Dalam and Neil Rasul Allah, is it not time

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

that you are gone?

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

That I am the Prophet of Allah. And he tears and tears trickled down his eyes. And he says he had to Allah ilaha illallah wa eyeshadow Anika Muhammad

00:25:11--> 00:25:49

Rasul Allah. I believe in the oneness of Allah. And I believe in the fact that you are the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what that mean the note how can people still then malign the character of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, or tarnish the beauty of Islam and accused both the Navy of ally and Islam, that it doesn't have room or space for recognition for other cultures or other people, and it is not tolerant, that is a myth. And it needs to be dispelled in the strongest ways. Study the seal of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Those who were leaders of every army against him came in the end and we're blessed with Iman. And they left this world as believers and

00:25:49--> 00:25:59

as sahaabah May Allah grant us the understanding that we can internalize and imbibe the entire seal of the messenger sallallahu wasallam and reflect it in its pristine form.
