Bismillah he was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

00:00:19--> 00:00:34

wa sallam we're back, we continue to discuss the amazing interaction of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with fellow non Muslims. The Arabic poet has said shahidul and mo befuddling. He had the nerida when fabuleux Masha he that to be healed.

00:00:35--> 00:01:18

That the entire creation testified to the excellence of the character the conduct the nobility of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wohlfahrt, Balu Masha he did to be healed other who, and the truth be told, the excellency of a person ought to be measured by the compliments of his enemies and not his friends. Because when a friend praises a friend, then there is it could be biased, it could be prejudice, it could be influenced by his personal life and attachment for booyakasha. You I mean, when you say we know the Hadith of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam. Your love for a person blinds you to his false and makes you Deaf to his mistakes. That that is how love is blinding, we

00:01:18--> 00:02:03

know that reality. But when you despise a person and you have difference of opinion, and you're not on a common page, yet your character rises beyond the differences, and your enemy has to admit and testify to Your Excellency, then surely that is a great accolade and a rich Feat. And that precisely is the case where the messenger sallallahu wasallam, that the does believe is different with him in religion and faith. But when it came to his character, they could not flow him in any way. When he Rachael was when Abu sufian was summoned in the court of Iraq, and hirako had asked Abu sufian few questions regarding the messenger sallallahu sallam, he asked him heltah he Muna who will kill with

00:02:03--> 00:02:47

Abdullah Yakuza McCall, have you ever observed this man uttering a lie prior to the claim of profit would and Abou sofiane said not once did he speaker lie, my job not lie he gives back we do not have an encounter or a recollection of him speaking a lie once in his entire life, highly of the does etc. No, not at all. So this is coming from a person who was not a Muslim at that time. And today we share with you the interaction of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet again, was one of the prominent leaders of the time it is believed and that was a kurama who subsequently became raphaela angle, the son of a Buddha has a Buddha halophila Oh no has he? The Pharaoh of this Omar.

00:02:47--> 00:02:53

Abu Jamal left no stone unturned in causing the most severe pain to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:55--> 00:03:16

So Rick Cromartie, Allah and his son later becomes a great Sahabi but initially, he also had a lot of resentment to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. In fact, there is a verse in the Quran in the 31st chapter in Surah lokman, the 32nd verse, which many scholars say speaks about the tale and the narrative of Rama or the Allahu anhu? What?

00:03:18--> 00:04:05

JOHN Galilee, will learn how Mahalia slean Allah who did well, I'm Anna Jang Hoon Ll bear with me no homeopathically. So the thinking of the infidels of Makkah was that if this man gains victory over Makkah, then either accept his creed and his faith, or then leave Makkah and seek shelter elsewhere, but it would not be in the interest of anyone to stay in Makkah as a disbeliever. Post the conquest of Makkah, at the hands of the Muslims, if that happens, this was the thinking amongst the people of Makkah. And Allah made that day come and it was a reality, a dream that came to fruition where the messenger sallallahu wasallam enters Makkah as the conqueror of Mecca. So many people accepted Islam

00:04:05--> 00:04:51

or either naza toluna, feeding Allah He of wotja and you would observe people coming into Islam in droves cause and multitudes and many opted to leave Makkah and flee from Makkah and seek amnesty elsewhere. And amongst those who decided that, you know what, I don't have a good track record. myself. My dad had been at loggerheads with this man. Was there a comma the son of Abu Jamal, so he hops on to a vessel and he plans going in the direction of Yemen and alarm reference is the stain in Surah la C'mon in the 21st June 31 chapter and 32nd verse of Surah lokman what either rashie mo john, and when they are enveloped by a wave caboodle. Qatada says it means like a cloud when they

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

are covered by waves like canopies, it overwhelms them that I will learn how to clean Allah Who do they call out to

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Allah in absolute sincerity, in fact the narrations make mentioned that rocky Bella bahara for us our bedroom rihana and sofa that as they move in in the vessel they gripped by stormy violent winds. So, they are four times of destructive winds that the Quran speaks about, to our on land and to our in ocean. The two that are inland is sorrow sorrow, Allah speaks about releasing and unleashing the winds of sorrow, sorrow Rehan sorrow sorrow, that Allah had unleashed it on the nation of odd and then the other one is a team, a team that is also a destructive when. And then there are two types of destructive winds that Allah unleashes in the ocean, one is the acid and one is passive. So in

00:05:44--> 00:06:30

this context, Rehan acid free one acid, like in another verse of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala speaks about this in Surah Yunus in the 11 Jews of the Koran that who will lead the USA euro comes in very well baja Hata either contain filfil what javelina be him very in play button 130 who will be her job to hurry on and save that while they move in and they merrymaking suddenly comes these violence stormy winds, and then obviously they realize how close they are to death. So the captain of the vessel said to the fellow occupants that lesson, it's time you call out to a divine being and the absolute Being for him, he had to come to the knee and come say, because your false dieties will

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

not avail you in any way. Sorry Chroma the son of Abuja Hill.

00:06:35--> 00:07:20

He said to himself, that if the true being can only rescue you, in the center of the ocean, that he is the only beam that can rescue inland and that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Anyway, he then make dua to the Almighty and he said to Allah, that, in the locker, I lay your head, in faith, any Mima NFP, all through divine being, if you grant me deliverance from this crisis in which I find myself, then I will return to Makkah, while the avant de Mohammed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then I will place my hand in the hand of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I will accept Islam. So on one side, this was unfolding, this was unfolding. And on the other side, there were

00:07:20--> 00:08:03

different developments which I will share with you shortly. So just to put things into context, we speak about the interaction of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, just not with the regular average common disbeliever. But these were prominent, influential high profile people who are spearheading all the anti Islamic campaigns. And if this was the level of tolerance coexistence, perseverance, endurance of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with these type of people, then can you imagine his interaction with the average and the common individual? Can I cram in a shot the other Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? The truth be told the direct drama was from among the most

00:08:03--> 00:08:50

severe and hostile enemies of Islam. Welcome Sheree Bella Dawa, and this resentment was intrinsic to him because he was born in a home where his father was the most hostile person towards Islam. So he got up in a home his eyes opened up in a home and all he heard was hatred dislike resentment towards the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the cause of Islam lacking Chroma is Tamara was at the villa Dawa. He continued his hatred, his dislike his resentment throughout the times throughout the times his dad had lost his life in the campaign of butter in the campaign of butter, the famous incident of Buhari leave now for the man who says going to defend Yama, Madryn wahala, monumental

00:08:50--> 00:09:29

and saw that I was standing in the plains of better and when I look to my right and my life, I was hoping for some skilled and talented individuals, only to discover that there was some young two brothers Mara was been a fraud. And each one of them had pledged that they're going to take revenge against a Buddha halwai for any Samia to know who you are. So bow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because I ever heard that this wicked wretched man maligns the character of the messenger sallallahu sallam, and he is blasphemous towards the personality of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. So he had said the most nasty things that you can ever imagine against any human. He had

00:09:29--> 00:09:48

heard those nasty comments against the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Subhan Allah, the doing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the character of the messengers allies and which was the catalyst. He his own wife, Omar Hakim bentall Harris been a sham. She accepted Islam she accepted Islam. So the conquest of Mecca takes place. Oman,

00:09:50--> 00:09:50

his wife,

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Hakeem bentall Harris, she accepts Islam and a Chroma he leaves Makkah and he flees, he leaves Mecca and he flees

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

So she comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Lita in the hurich, Rama, in Yoruba in America. I mean, she comes to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And she says open up and sallallahu wasallam I am the wife of Rama, the daughter in law of Abuja, hell, and my husband has left Makkah, and he has fled towards Yemen, seeking amnesty elsewhere. I asked you to give him amnesty. Now this is where I beg for your undivided attention. I asked for you to give him amnesty and give him protection. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said who I mean, you can convey my sentiments to him, he is safe, and he's secured. And I have extended amnesty to him. The question

00:10:45--> 00:11:32

that we need to pose here is that when the wife of Rama came and asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam for amnesty. At that time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't really collect or revive or relive the pain that karma and his father or Buddha had inflicted on the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam. Sometimes, you know what, a sibling apologizes to a sibling, or a child to a parent or to a partner to a spouse. And then he or she says to each other, well, you know, I can forgive but it's not so easy. You've caused me so much pain, and how can I forget this day? How can I forget that it has left indelible impressions on my mind. Those are unforgettable memories, the

00:11:32--> 00:12:18

day of the funeral, the day of the wedding, the day of this occasion, the nasty remarks, when, when the wife of Rama came, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam probably had a flash of all these emotions, but he did not reference it in any way. lumea core law, whether music care, habitat tawi, he didn't remind her of one of his nasty plots, and he's inflictions upon the messenger sallallahu sallam. in one breath, he said, who are amin? And I seize the opportunity to remind myself and fellow viewers and listeners, do we have that strength and courage to forgive amongst ourselves? Do we have that's okay, you safe, so and so wants to come for the function? Can he come? Oh, no, tell him not to come.

00:12:18--> 00:12:59

If he comes, I won't come or if I come, he shouldn't come. But the two of us cannot meet at a common venue. This is the kind of reaction and this is blood. It's relative is Muslims. This is a disbeliever Subhana Allah. Hi, Raja tomo Hakeem Hassan zoji How was the habit had that was solid in a barrel. So it camara the Allahu anhu at that time is not really Alanna, but he leaves and he's gone. He leaves and he's gone and his wife is in panic, anxiety, anxious, etc. She gets the assurance from the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam that He has given her safety in the ocean, this is what unhappy unfolds and develops the wave comes overlap them, they cry out to Allah

00:12:59--> 00:13:05

subhanho wa Taala. And then the vessel returns back to shore. And as it comes to shore.

00:13:07--> 00:13:45

He aligns the vessel. And the first to meet him is his wife. And some narration suggests that he had a need at that time to be intimate with his spouse. So you know, he went through panic. He went through anxiety, he went through uneasiness, he was in depression, close to death. And as he comes out, the first person to meet him at shore is his own wife. So he asked his wife, you know what, I have a need, I need to be intimate with you. So his wife said, no, not at the moment because I am a believer, and you have not accepted the faith. So Islam has separated the two of us, but why don't you come along with me and let's go to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So like Rama says,

00:13:45--> 00:14:27

How can I go to him when when when I had caused him so much pain and discomfort. So his wife then comforts him and says to him, but it took a minute when the O solid nurse, the nurse was hiring nurse led to lick enough suck in this mental Naka Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, oh, my husband trust me I have just returned from the most kind, the most noble, the most amazing human. This is a woman who has just recently accepted Islam and had description of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. He is the most amazing he is the most unique is the most profound person. And that's what we say in the interaction. We have the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the disbelievers

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

when to mama when to Mama was captured, and he was tied to one of the pillars of the sacred Masjid of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And then the messenger sallallahu Sallam passed by and he said to mama, what do you have to say? He said in ductal Dr. Domine were intuitive him told him Allah Shakeel, that O Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam if you claim my life, then my nation will avenge my death. We're in total rental vimala circuit and if you pardon me, then you are pardoning an individual who will appreciate

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

She ate your favor. And after three days the messenger sallallahu Sallam said utterly poo Mama leninism and free him, and he was released. And then he went to a close by well, and then he took a ritual bath. And he came back and he said, I pledge my allegiance to you, and I want to accept the faith. And he himself then goes on to say that three days ago when I was brought here, by Allah, you were the most despised the human in my eyes to me. And three days later, I swear by Allah, there isn't a human on planet Earth, who I love more dearly than you That was the transformation that took place by this interaction of the character of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. So, Rama, Eben

00:15:44--> 00:16:23

abijah, hell, his wife comforts him, she declines to be intimate with him because he's become a Muslim. And he also we learned that once they became believers, they were so compliant and they will be obliged to all the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he asked his wife anti Valentina, have you really taken amnesty for me? She says, absolutely none micrometer is Allah kalbach tiara dunya Kula pata de la Fina, yada. And in the eyes of, of Eric Rama, his dad had been killed at the hands of the Muslims. Makkah has been conquered. He tried to flee from Makkah. And when he got onto the vessel, there were storms. They were they were, you know, the waters were rough, the tides were

00:16:23--> 00:17:05

high, so there was no safety. So things have really narrowed upon him and when he comes here, his own wife has, as you know what reluctance in being intimate with him she has taken the faith. So he's like, really, things have narrowed upon him. However, she gives him the assurance that come along with me, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given you amnesty and has given you protection. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam is informed is informed through revelation, that Chroma will soon be making his presence. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And then people still want to say that this is a religion of hostility. This is a religion of non tolerance.

00:17:06--> 00:17:56

I kinema has not yet accepted Islam understand this year, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unconditionally extends amnesty to Rama on the request of his wife is sitting with his companions. And he says to them, yeah, it can read kurama to Macmillan Fela De Soto about who for in Maine yet they'll hire you whether your billable my yet Allahu Akbar. This can only be the teachings of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Pure religion of Islam. He said to his noble companions, yeah, it commemorate kurama to Mina, sure, shortly, I kurama, the son of a Buddha who will make his presence here, and he will accept Islam. Finally, the so boo ababu when he comes here,

00:17:56--> 00:18:41

do not Don't insult his late father, who was his father, the phenomenon of the xoma, who was his father would cause the most pain to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam father at the sumo ababu do not speak in abuse or condescending or negative or inflammatory remarks about his late father for intercept Ben may yet you still Hey, when are you available? Because insulting the desease only offends the loving and does not harm the dead in any way. What a profound teaching. It also teaches us when we go to pay our respects at someone's house and they have moved on the messenger sallallahu Sallam says, Guru mahasin emoticon speak about the good of your disease. So if it's a Muslim brother

00:18:41--> 00:19:26

or sister that you're going to pay your respects at the house, then speak about the virtue and don't speak about the ill to the family, because that is going to hurt the feelings and the sentiments and that person has moved on in Africa. So he or she will have to contend with the evil that they have done. But understand for a year in curry McKenna during the rasulillah he said a lot ism how do you how do you explain this type of conduct and character that the messenger sallallahu Sallam is alerting his Sahaba to be super sensitive to the emotions of the son of one of the greatest enemies of Islam and a son who himself has remained an enemy up till this point, and has not yet taken the

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

Shahada, but sensitivity to his emotion sensitivity to these emotions. Lacan abou Jacqueline Fira de Lama. Indeed Abu Jahan was the Pharaoh of this oma when moronic for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam Yamato Sahaba the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commands the Sahaba be Allah yell I know about Jacqueline Emma Ebony drama. He prohibits the companions don't use foul obscene, immoral offensive language against a

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

Jehle

00:20:02--> 00:20:09

it. Let's just pause for a moment we we so casually use this type of language amongst our own people.

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

Lee Kayla yo Masha,

00:20:14--> 00:20:34

Allah Muslim, whatever he has, he loves us so that he's not hurt. He's not offended. He's not insulting, bearing in mind that karma has not yet taken the Shahada. He has not yet taken the Shahada. Anyway eurycoma then comes he comes before the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he sits down when he says before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam held that

00:20:35--> 00:21:13

the the messenger sallallahu Sallam say to him that curriculum I look at you and I can just see your father and the wickedness of your father and the the nasty agendas of your father. And I can see you a chip of that old block of gonna see you have that same, you know, venom in you and that same rage, no, no, nothing of that nature, nothing of that nature. It's completely different, but rather our other trader who doesn't already foofy the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him a lesson, and that is the character of Islam, and that is the teachings of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, Ramadan comes before the Prophet sallallahu wasallam locka aerosolised sallallahu

00:21:13--> 00:21:59

alayhi wa sallam Ilan Omar Omar Ali Reza farahan. behind. It is mentioned that there were only a few individuals regarding whom when they took the Shahada, the messengers realizing leap forward in joy and excitement, and amongst them was Eric Rama. When he came forward, the messenger callosum stood up he stood in joy in happiness in anticipation to embrace the drama, one bus at that as well as a reader who will Moravec Rama yuru de la ma and the hula Muslim back to his allies and goes forward he embraces him with teleserye crema to buy in a Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Can you imagine this woman is sitting in front of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and then he points to his

00:21:59--> 00:22:44

wife, who is on the other side in the shadow Eliza jetty he Bharati be Annika and mentally my wife claims that supposedly you have given me given me amnesty and that I am safe. So the messenger sallallahu wasallam do not have a lot without any remarks or any hints or insinuations. He says that she spoken the truth and I mean you are safe, you are fine. No reminder, no condescending remarks in English they say if you tell someone I can forgive you, but I can't forget is just another way of saying I can't forgive you. I can forgive you but I can't forget the Prophet of Allah can put everything behind him. Then Rama said a Lama said earlier Mohammed Mohammed Salah is and what is

00:22:44--> 00:23:25

your invitation invitation? What do you invite to so the messenger sallallahu Sallam said at the ruca and Tasha Allah Allah, Allah, Allah who I invite you to bring him on on the oneness of Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know the beautiful qualities of Islam. Allah who Kunal Hassan Al hamidah, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam enumerated before him the great qualities of Islam. Well, hello Bina Assad the man you can live okay for yourself. The hearts are in the control of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And at any time Allah can turn the heart of any person and believe it or not, rica Rama Rama Mohan, who takes the Shahada, the son of Abu Jahan, the son of Abu

00:23:25--> 00:24:01

Jamal Wakanda Raja no man No man Alif Iran yet to Mui mana there was a person who had a man within the family of Pharaoh within the family of Pharaoh and Allah gave him a man and abou john was the Pharaoh of this oma and from his family, his own blood, biological son born to him from his own line, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him a man and he accepts Islam Subhana Allah, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam then says to karma, karma, you are free maker requests, whatever request you have, I will grant it to you whatever supplication you want, I will pray for you. Tada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:24:02--> 00:24:43

and Rama masala Hadees Ramadan Islam where you have no control so you can remember who in the deen that the prophets Allah said is trying to win his confidence and comfort him and show him the beauty of Islam that tell me Is there any desire that you have amazing look at the transformation in the company of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he says oh prophet of Allah I asked from you to make dua to Allah that He must forgive me for the pain I caused you. He must forgive me for the campaign's I lead against you. He must forgive me for the curses I heard against you and the messenger satellites and lifts his hand and makes dua for who a former enemy the son of a staunch

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

enemy of Islam, Allah homophilic Rama colada within Adda Neha wakulla Messier in serafina mo venuti to be that he can machine it for a new rig one philippou Mandela mini we really see what he oh and avoid it. bandhu our love forgive him for

Every step he took to extinguish your light, Allah forgive him for every word he uttered against the cause of Islam. Allah forgive him for insulting me in my face or behind my back. He was ecstatic and elated, and then he becomes a great Sahabi and then he loses his life as a matter in the campaign of your move. I leave you on that note, how can a person then ever claim that Islam has no tolerance for Barents towards fellow non Muslim? May Allah grant us the ability to reflect Islam in its pristine form to those working around us those whom we interact Muslims and non Muslims.
