Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
So where were so many of you yesterday?
Where were you?
No, seriously. I felt like the numbers had really shrunk yesterday. Was everything okay?
appointment? What else?
son was sick? Okay. Too many viruses going around? Okay?
You see, unless there is something very serious. And by serious I mean, like a person is sick or somebody in your family is sick and they're dependent on you, then I mean, it doesn't benefit a person who is serious in gaining knowledge that they should skip class, they should miss it.
I understand that there can be appointments sometimes or other commitments, but try to make them outside of class hours. Okay? Because if you miss class, then tell me Are you able to make it up later on? When you tell yourself? Yeah, I can listen to the recordings. But then when you see that, do hour long recording, then what happens? You can never find the time to do it. If you couldn't find the time today, then when can you find the time later on when your schedule is not changing?
Right. So remember that when something has to be done, just do it, do it then don't delay it until later unless there is something beyond your ability beyond your control.
Because this is what we learned from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well.
That the prophets had a lot of sin when he was given the message. He was told to warn people. And he was afraid as we learned in our previous lesson, that he said I was afraid that the people would reject me. But what was he told, do it or it will be done.
Do it or it will be done. Meaning you don't have a choice. Either you do it willingly. Or you do it unwillingly. This is something that must be done.
So likewise, there are many things in life that are necessary, and we should not give ourselves an option of doing it or not doing it. If it's necessary. Just do it.
Alright, let's begin our lesson. Now. How do we want to slowly or at all asuna Euclidean I'm agartha let him in a shame
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he received the first revelation. After that there was a period of about three months to six months. And according to others, a few days, 10 days or a couple of weeks, there is a difference of opinion concerning this matter how long it took for the second revelation to come. But what we know for sure is that the second revelation did not come right away, it did not come immediately there was a gap, all right, and this gap is known as fat throttle way through the gap between the world and this period was something that was extremely difficult upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And there are some reports
and perhaps you have also heard, and people really highlight the these reports in order to speak negatively of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to prove that he was not a prophet of Allah, or to prove that the Hadith books are not authentic. And these reports what they allude to is that during this period, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam attempted to kill himself multiple times. Have you heard of this? Have you heard about it? There are certain groups of people who reject Hades. And they say that well this is mentioned in Buhari that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tried multiple times to throw himself off the mountain in order to kill himself. So this is mentioned in Buhari. So you say
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did that if he did, what does that mean? And likewise, there are other groups of people. So for instance, many Christians they also use this tissue to to prove that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was not a prophet of Allah rather, the devil was behind him. Whereas this is completely untrue. Now when it comes to these reports, yes
They are mentioned for instance in Buhari, this report is mentioned. But as the scholars put it, Mr. Buhari is not recording this narration as a hadith because when you study the Buhari, the book of Hadith Sahih Bukhari you will find out that there are many reports that are recorded as Hadees with the chain of narration. And then there are other reports, which are recorded, all right, as statements of scholars, and the words are azuri. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became so sad, as we have heard, that he intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains. So you see over here, as we have heard, meaning this is something that some
people said, but there was no, you know, basis for that, or they did not have any proof to show that it was definitely true. This was just something that was said. And remember, in the beginning of the subject, I mentioned to you that when it comes to Syrah and other scholars, we're not always very particular about the authenticity of the narrations initially, right. But then later on, they did become quite concerned about this. And they selected the authentic reports that spoke about the life of the Prophet sallallahu already who was on them, right. Now, so that so this is one way that we can understand that this is something that was mentioned. But without any evidence, and Mr. Bahari
records it exactly as that. All right. Now, secondly, if you think about it later, in his life, the prophets Allah Addison was asked by Chateau de lo Varna, about the most difficult day of his life. All right. Now, if you think about it, if you were ever asked, what was the most difficult time of your life, you recall those moments, which were very difficult on you so much so that you didn't want to live even. Right? And if a person had had had suicidal thoughts in the past, what would he mentioned? those thoughts, those days, those experiences? Correct. But the profits are a lot, isn't it not mentioned the veteran what he? What did he mentioned? But if that was the most difficult time
on him? All right, then we see that even if, hypothetically speaking, if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did intend to do this, what does that show?
What does that tell us about the Prophet? sallallahu? wasallam? Was he a liar? making all of this up? Would a liar do that?
A person who's fabricating something, a person who's inventing something? Would he ever do this? Would he try to commit suicide? No, a person who is making up something absolutely false. All right, he's pretty confident about what he's doing. He would never try to kill himself. right at the beginning. All right. And if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did intend to do this, what does it show? The fact that he was very human. The fact that he was very, very human, that he was afraid he was worried. He didn't know what what to do. But each time It is reported that each time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did intend to do this, what happened? jabril appeared before him and said, You are
the Prophet of Allah. And then eventually when the prophets Allah, Hassan was ready. The second way he came to him. All right, so if ever somebody casts this to you, all right, saying that Oh, your prophet tried to kill himself. You will you believe in Hadith. You believe in Buhari. While this is reported in Buhari, Don't be shocked over there. All right. Say that yes, this is reported in Buhari, but it's mentioned as a report and not a hadith. All right. And even if he did, so, what that just shows his humaneness, and that just shows that just further proves the point that he was not inventing all of this and remember that this was not a devil behind him because the devil the
shaytaan Who does he go to? liars shaytaan assists to liars, people who are honest, people who are truthful chalon can never influence them ever.
Because Allah subhanaw taala protects such people. So that so this was just something that I wanted to clarify, in case you ever come across something like this, you should be aware. Now, the with the second revelation, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was commanded to
arise and warn go for and get up and warn people. So with this, what happened the first phase of Dawa begin the Prophet sallallahu Sallam began calling people to Islam he began calling people to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone and leave idolatry right. And how is this done? at a personal level on one on one basis at an individual level. And this is what is known as private dharma. Right? Meaning the prophets or the listener did not call people to the heathen any open public gatherings. He did not declare himself in
front of everybody that he was the Messenger of Allah. And why did he do this deliberately in order to avoid drawing any, any sort of attention? Because if the Quraysh if the leaders, if they became hostile towards the prophets on a lot of them right at the beginning, then what would happen? This would affect our efforts, right? So the prophets on a lot of them worked very quietly. Why? In order to gather support, quietly, and seek like minded individuals, all right, and also avoid any public attention. Because many times it happened at something, when it's at the initial stages, and it draws public attention, what happens to it, it's just chopped down, it's finished. Right? But when
something grows, slowly, gradually, it takes hold, then then even if it gets public attention, and opposition, still what happens it can survive, right? So this is the the method that the prophets on a lot of them adopted private Dawa. Right. And we see that the darwell was private. And the practice of Islam was also private, because remember that the believers were told, commanded to pray right at the beginning. Correct. That it is said that the third revelation, it came, right before that, or after that around that time gibreel taught the Prophet sallallahu Sallam how to do Voodoo and also how to pray. So if the believers are performing the solid, you think others will notice that, right?
I mean, it happens so many times that if you go to a monster that you don't usually go to, and you are praying in a particular way, and the people praying around you are not raising their hands, or, for instance, they're doing sudduth differently. Everybody looks at you strange, right? Or if you go somewhere with a hijab even. All right, everybody looks at you strange as it as if you're an alien. Right? So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what would he do, he would also pray privately, meaning not openly in the harem, or outside where people could see him and the believers also did the same, they prayed. They perform their prayers in private spaces, or in far off valleys, ravines, remote areas.
Why? So that nobody would notice that? Nobody would see them in this is a huge lesson for us. Right? Which is that if ever we are in a situation where people are getting annoyed by, let's say, our recitation of the Quran, or even our prayers, then what should we do? Create a hostile environment? What should we do? Do it quietly? Right? Like, for example, this one lady, I remember she mentioned once upon a time that how her husband did not like the fact that she was studying the meaning of the Quran. Right? And it happens, sometimes you don't understand how a Muslim could be offended by an action like this. Right? So she said that whenever I would have to study, I would get up in the
middle of the night. All right, and go sit in the walk in closet, with the light on on the floor with my Koran studying, that's what I would do.
Right? So quietly, so that somebody who's getting irritated somebody who's getting offended, they don't get all, you know, agitated, and they don't react against you, because that would create more problems for you.
Right? So you have to go slowly, slowly, step by step whenever you see hostility, right? Likewise, it may be that people don't like the fact that you pray your sooner, you know, they might be like, okay, hurry up, come on. Ready? We're waiting for dinner. So then what should you do?
What should you do?
Pray on time, not when everybody's waiting for you. And then you start your prayers. All right, or that you're sitting with your cotton and you're sitting and people are waiting for you so so try to avoid tension. Right? where people are getting offended, irritated, avoided. You know, if, especially when it comes to the dean, especially when it comes to the matter of the dean, and you really have to control yourself over there. You really have to be proactive over there.
That we see that during this time. There was no confrontation with the machine in the first three years no confrontation, because the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he did not openly invite them. He did not openly speak against their practices, nor did he openly,
you know, say anything negatively about idolatry. He just did private Dawa. And again, this teaches us that we should always avoid matters of conflict. Right? And the way the way that was being given to the prophets a lot of time at this time. How was it it was coming
Instantly now, right between the first and second revelation, there was a gap of three to six months. But now after this what happened to where he was coming consistently, regularly, with short and powerful messages, short, but powerful. And the if they were such that they would guide the believers on the different aspects of tawheed. Right believing in Allah, as God as Lord as Holic as Malik as the only one who deserves worship. So basically, the message was focused on the heat. Why? Because they'll hate belief in Allah alone belief in Allah as the only god that is the foundation of Islam right. And if that is strong, then what will happen the tree will grow. But if this foundation
is weak, then what will happen? Nothing can grow.
Nothing can stand on it. So this is why we see that the monkey Sutras, right, if you look at the monkey soldiers, their focus is primarily on what belief in the head, but not just that. Also, the verses encourage the faithful the believers to purify their hearts to adorn themselves with a lot of sincerity for our last panel tada and also adorn themselves with beautiful, noble character, the I admonish the believers with detailed description of gender of jahannam of the Day of Judgment. And the instruction was so powerful that it opened the hearts and minds of the believers to eat man. And so with time, the believers only became firm on their faith. Now, all of the sutras which were
revealed very early on, are suited to Muslim men. For example, yeah, a Yuval Muslim will because remember, the prophets are the laws and when he went to him, What did he say? The Maloney the ferroni. So at one occasion, yeah, a U haul. mudassar was revealed then later on. Yeah, you have masa mill. Oh, you who is wrapped up oma La, la, la, la casa de la cara can pray in the night. Don't sleep in the night, get up and pray in the night. You can't pray during the day. People watch you people see you. You're afraid, then what should you do? Pray in the night seek Allah's help. Likewise, little Arla was one of the first soldiers to be revealed, in which is the idea of law
Herman does Africa successful is the one who purifies himself. So the believers are encouraged to purify themselves. Likewise, soda to teen is one of the early souls in which is la catalana. In Santa Fe, or Sangeeta Cohen we have created the human being in the best form someone other than as well as 17 then he has become the lowest of the low in the Latina amanu except for those who believe formula solid and do righteous deeds, follow him Coronavirus Noonan for them is an endless reward. So this was an encouragement for the believers. Amen. And Arnold Sol De Soto zils. Al was also one of the early soldiers and in Sorrento xyzal, we learn about the description of the day of judgment
and the importance of performing good deeds, even if there are very little from a yarmulke with all of that rotten Highland, Yahoo. Whoever does an atom's weight of good even, he will see it and at the same time and atoms weight of evil, he will see it likewise suited to the idea that is also one of the earliest students in which we learn in insanity will be luck, I know the man is very ungrateful to his Lord. So Tara was also one of the early sources for amendments I call it my was in heavy scales, more good deeds. pseudocolor also Also, while also in an incentive, rehearsal, humanities and loss, except for who those who believe and do good with also will help whatever
so true Qureshi was also one of the early soldiers in which the people of flourish are encouraged to worship Allah foliar Budo raha debate? You see what what the messages, though heed? What is the message purification, self development, adorning oneself with good luck, focusing on good deeds, keeping away from sin. These were the first messages that the Muslims were given. So that we feel also is one of the early soldiers to show to the believers of power of Allah soprano Tada.
Now we see that word of the Prophet sallallahu Slim's message, it's spread. And while some leaders of the Quraysh did get upset, occasionally meaning people will get offended that what is this man talking about? Not worship idols. But nobody, no one paid much attention. All right, being it was something new. They heard about it, and they didn't really care much.
And gradually, the numbers of the believers grew, more and more people began accepting Islam.
Not very many.
All right. There were many people who believed but there weren't in the hundreds, right? There were a few people who believed.
Because private Dawa, there's only so much result that it can produce. Right? If you're talking to people on one on one basis, yes, it will, it will bring some results, but they're going to be little, right? So this shows to us that up to a certain level, you work privately, alright, you keep your faith to yourself. But then eventually, you have to face the reality. You have to go public. So for instance, at home, at work at school, you keep your deen as a personal letter. Right? You you worship privately, you don't talk about your religion. But then what happens a time will come when the matter will be publicized either because of some incident, or because you have to go ahead and
publicize it. Right? Like, for example, you could be at your school and nobody talks about, you know, the example that I gave you recently about, for instance, homosexuality, what's your opinion on that? What does your religion say? You're quiet about it. You don't make an issue out of it. But then what happens? The teacher assigns a debate.
Right? Just recently, a girl came up to me and she said that I have been assigned by my by my professor, to do to participate in a debate in which I have to
support the government's ban on niqab.
I have to support it, unlike lose the debate, she's like, well, if I lose it, I'm not gonna get any marks. What am I supposed to I'm like, tell her that you can't, you don't want to do that. She said, I haven't been given an option.
So it happens, that you're put in these situations, eventually, sooner or later they come.
Right, where you have to go public with your beliefs, you can't keep them to yourself anymore. They do surface up. All right, and we see that this is exactly what happened with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that for three years the matter was private. But then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was ordered to preach publicly. And thus the second phase of Dawa began. And what was the second phase of the Darwin? Public thorough?
Right, and this went on for 10 for the next 10 years, in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was to invite people openly to Islam without exception. Whether a person was a total stranger or a friend, or relative or not.
A resident of the city of Mecca or a visitor, it didn't matter. Every person the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was
required to he was commanded to invite them to Islam
I have 214 to 217 Allah. Allah says what ends it are Sheila tickle carabin and warn your closest Kindred people who are closest to you in relationship, your blood relatives, warn them. Tell them walk with Jenna Hakka live and eat of our community macmini and lower your wing meaning Be merciful, unkind and affectionate towards those who follow you of the believers for in our Soca, but if the people disobey you for calling in every method malloon then say Indeed, I am disassociated from what you are doing. What are kilala Aziza Rahim and rely upon the Exalted in Might the merciful.
In a divinity we learned that when these ayat were revealed. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam began his public Dawa. According to one report, the prophets on a lot is in place to his fingers in his ears, raised his voice and said, all been robbed manuf yell sabaha obon or Optima nafees calling out his relatives and he said, All people fear of loss, punishment, fear of loss punishment. So we see that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told to take the Darwin out publicly, he began with his family, because this is exactly what he was told what and
There are shirataki carabin, those who are closest to you have the most right.
Those who are closest to you warn them first. So the prophets Allah sent me. He began with his family with his closest relatives, the bundle Hashem. Because remember that that was the tribe, the clan of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
We learned that the prophets Allah sent him invited his family members to his house.
And he, he had food prepared for them also. And it is said that around 40 people came. So 40 relatives, men and women, his uncle's, his aunt, right, his cousins, people who were related to him, he called them over to his house, and about 40 of them came and he served them food. And the prophets Allah Madison's plan was that after feeding them, he would do Dawa to them, because you need some kind of occasion, right? So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. What did he do? He took advantage of a social gathering. He did. You can say a party at his house, in which all his family members came. All right, he served them food. And then after the food, what happened? He got up in
order to address however, I will I have the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he had some idea of what the prophet sallallahu Sallam was doing. So what happened to Allah he made an excuse, and he went, so when he went other people also started leaving. So the prophets on a lot of them was not able to do I need to write to them.
If this happened to you, that you plan to hold event at your house, you spend so much money prepared so much food called all your family members to tell them about something and what happens the plan fields? Would you be disheartened?
Of course, what did the Prophet sallallaahu Selim do? He said, Let's try again.
So he called his family members, again, serve them food, but this time, he didn't wait for them to finish the food. While they were eating, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got up. And he began with the hookah, which hooked the hospital hedger in Al Hamdulillah, in which the praise of Allah is mentioned. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the people, said to his family members, I am the messenger of Allah and I have been sent to you in particular and to all mankind in general, I swear by Allah, that you will die in the same way you sleep every night, and you will be resurrected, similar to how you rise from sleep in the morning.
Just as when you go to bed at night Do you wake up the next morning, you do. So just like that, when you die, you will get up one day, Following this, your account will be taken from you. And then your good will be paid with good and your bad will be paid with bad. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he just did basic Dawa over here, warning the people about the hereafter that there is more to life than what we are doing currently. Life is not just about eating and drinking and having a you know, a good time, however, there is more to life, we will be judged we will be held accountable for what we are doing right now. And he told him that he was a messenger of Allah. Now, when everybody heard
this, they were quiet. They responded decently you can say, except for Abu lahab, who said, who basically humiliated the prophets, a lot of them. And he said to the people who were present in the gathering his his relatives, stop, Mohammed, stop him. Before all Arabia unites against us, meaning he is going to humiliate us.
If we let him continue what he's doing, he is going to humiliate our tribe, we enjoy a high status in society, we are respected in entire Arabia. But because of what he is doing, we're gonna lose all of this. So stop him. And if you hand him over to them, then you will be put to disgrace. And if you try to save him, you will be killed.
So in other words, he's saying there's no way Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is going to be successful, either, we're gonna have to hand him over to the rest of the people. All right, because as long as he's part of us, he's he's from our tribe, we have to defend him. Because remember that in Arabia, it wasn't that I support you because I agree with you. No, it was I support you because you are related to me.
This is the reason why people supported each other. So he said that if, if we don't stop him, then we're going to have to support him. And if we support him, how long are we going to continue like this? We're going to have to disown him and when we disown him, this will be humiliation for us because which tribe disowns their own people, their own members, which because it was something very
Very blameworthy in that society that you disown your own people, you abandon them. Your own cousin, your uncle, your nephew. You didn't do that, in that culture, it was not acceptable.
Right? And he said that if you try to save him, you'll be killed. It's a lose, lose.
So stop him. So what happened?
The all and that whole impression that the prophets of Allah had created, however, our little dillo or who, who was still a very young boy, he showed his support, and I will call him even showed his support. Abu Talib said, Go and do what you have to do, oh, my nephew, you have my support, I will defend you, I will protect you. And this shows to us how much he loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In some other reports, we learn that the prophets Allah was asked at this location, that who will support me in this, I have been assigned a responsibility to convey this message, who will support me in this, no one spoke no one offered their support except for our leader, the Lord, who
was still a young boy, he said, I will support you, I'm with you. I'll be with you. The prophets, Allah loves him again, asked who will support me, no one said anything, or the level lower and who got up and he said, I will support you. And this happened three times, as a child, he's offering his support. As a young boy, he sees that if this is the truth, I have to stand up for it.
Now we see that the gathering, or the people who were present over there, they split into three groups, right? One was the silent group. One group of people silent, they're, they're neither supporting himself a lot of them, nor are they opposing him. And this is the case with the majority of the people, they show indifference, or they're too hesitant to, to, to, to publicize their views, right to speak openly about what they think they just want to follow the crowd. Right. And we see that another group was of those who accepted and who has their own the idea of the lower end, who's the one who accepted a baton of said, I do not accept it, but I will support you. I prefer the
religion of my father, but you have my support.
And then the third group was who
Abu lahab, who strongly opposed the Prophet sallallahu Addison. And generally, when a person goes out in the way of Allah, then this is the reaction that he receives. A group of people who are quiet, they don't care.
They can't be bothered. Another group of people who do show support, and yes, there are also those who show hostility. But we see that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not stop because of this. He did not stop. Has it ever happened that you asked someone for permission and you're told no.
You can't do this.
What happens immediately?
From where? From our eyes. Right. And the heartbreaks
and we get discouraged. And we think never again.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite this reaction, did he stop here? No, he didn't stop.
What happened? He was given another command. And now he was told in total 194 we learned fosse dar Bhima to model what are they learned emotionally can declare openly what you have been commanded and turn away from those who do Schick declare openly.
First he was told conferenza right. So he spoke to people privately, then he installed, reach out to your family. They deserve to be told. So he reached out to his family. Now he's told FOSS Darby martoma tell everyone declare openly what you have been commanded. So what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam do?
We learned that he climbed up on Mount suffer, you know, so find middle, right? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam climbed on Safa,
all the way to the top. And a mountain, even though today, it seems to be very small. At that time, it was quite big. All right. And remember that when you're standing on the top of the mountain, right, you can see all sides, you can see in front of you can also see behind you mind if you turn around, but the people who are in front of you, they cannot see what is behind the mountain. Right. And the people who are behind the mountain, they cannot see what is before the mountain in front of the mountain. So we see that the mountain is like a barrier, right? But the problem is that a lot of time he stood on top of Mount Safa, and what he did over there was that he began calling out to the
people. He said he also the HA and what does that mean? Basically Warning Warning
Right. And basically, this was the method that was adopted at that time that if a public warning had to be given, somebody would climb up on top of the mountain and would give, you know, the warning openly publicly screaming out loud, all right. So, the profits of a lot of them use the method that was prevailing in that culture
to get the message across to as many people as possible.
So these days, what can we do?
Okay, so for instance, social media or something like that, right? So anyway, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he,
he got on top of Mount Safa, and he began calling out to people. So by saying yes about her, what did he do? He alerted everybody.
But then he didn't stop there. He began calling every family and every household by name. He said, All sons are feared all sons of ID remember who was fated one of the ancestors. All right, all sons of ID all sons of abdomen f all sons of Abdulmutallab all sons of Sorrento, so and so he began calling out family, by family, clan, by clan. So what happened? people heard their names being called out. And before that, they heard he also have a Ha. And then who's calling them Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he was calling one family after the other. So everybody came rushing to the scene, wondering what has happened. This is something very serious, because Muhammad
Sallallahu Sallam does not call people like this. Right? And everybody came and those who were not able to come they send somebody on their behalf. And when they all assembled the prophets that a lot of them said, if I told you
that an army was behind mount suffer, coming to attack you, would you believe me?
Would you accept my word? Would you take my word?
And the people said, Of course we would. Why? Because we have never heard you lying. We have always found you, to be honest. What was the profit? Sort of also implying over here?
You don't see the army.
Right? But if I tell you,
do you consider me trustworthy? Do you consider me reliable? That you will accept my word and take action? Or do you need time so that you can verify the news that I'm giving you?
Because you see some people when they're telling you something? What do you need to do you say? Let me think about it.
I'll get back to you. I need to verify, I need to check I need to consult. Right? Why do you have to do that because the person is not reliable.
But at other times, another person comes and tells you something, and what happens you believe them immediately.
Why? What's the difference over here? One person is reliable, and the other is not reliable. The one who is reliable, you just take their word as is. You don't need to confirm you don't need to verify you don't need to do any research, nothing. You don't even need any time to think.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was implying this, that would you take action simply because I am telling you? Would you take my word? Or would you need to verify Do you trust me? Am I reliable, and the people said, Of course you are reliable, we trust you, we have never heard you say a lie. So the prophets are the loudest and and then said to them, know that I am a warner from Allah, to proclaim the coming punishment in the hereafter unless you leave idolatry.
Because you see, when a person is giving you the news of the future of the asset, for example, why through revelation, he's claiming to be a prophet.
You wonder, well, what's the proof?
Right? What's the proof that he's a prophet? He's not lying. What's the proof that he's not making this up? You need some evidence, right? But the prophets have a lot of synonyms character was such that no one questioned him.
When it came to the most serious matters, even people accepted his word because he was a sodic. Well, I mean, he was the most truthful man, in that society amongst those people.
So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he warned them about the punishment of the Hereafter, he asked them to save themselves by declaring that Allah is one he has no partners and that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger, he called them to La ilaha illa Allah. And he made clear to them that the only way of salvation was La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah in dystonia and in the cochlea. And then you also further made clear to them that he would not be able to save them. Each person is on his own right now because of blood relationships. Because of the
prevalent system people help each other people support each other, but on the Day of Judgment, each person is alone. And how did he clarify this? He addressed all people one by one and he said, All people have courage to free yourselves from Allah meaning from, from his anger from his punishment. Save yourself from the fire of hell. Because I am not the master of your gain and loss. I cannot help you
Oba new carbon, Lu a, save yourself from hell. I cannot help you. Oba nuco say save yourself from hell, all burn or abdomen f save yourself from hell obon Hashem save yourself from hell obon or Abdulmutallab save yourself from hell, or a best friend of the month but if I can be of no help to you in saving you from Allah, or Sophia, Abdulmutallab. So we see that he is addressing men and women, his uncles and his aunts or Fatima, then he addresses his daughter, even Oh, Fatima, daughter of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked for whatever you want from my property, take whatever you want, you need something today, I can give you but save yourself from Hell, I cannot be of any help to
from Allah, meaning I cannot save you from his punishment. However, I am related to you and I will fulfill my obligations accordingly. So what was the message of the Prophet sallallahu? alayhi wasallam?
If you summarize his message, what is it that he focused on?
What is it that he delivered?
Okay, though he'd end
Yes, that each person is responsible for himself.
Each person must take responsibility of himself.
Don't do something just because everybody's doing it realize that you alone will have to suffer the consequences.
So what happened?
People were quiet.
Now, if you think about it, the prophets have a lot of times the way he called out to the people, how did he call out to them? He started from the most distant relatives to those who were closest.
Right? And we see that the prophets of Allah, whenever they addressed their nations, they said, Yeah, call me or my people.
Right? They didn't present themselves as outsiders or above the rest of humanity, right as one of them so that people don't feel threatened. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also called out to all his relatives, how starting from the most distant to the most closest. Now the people were quiet. And this is very normal reaction.
Right? That when people hear something that is different, but it also makes sense. They're they're left speechless.
About Abu lahab. However, he spoke up again, and he said angrily to Baluch le had a door opener, may you be cursed? Is it for this that you brought us here?
You wasted our time, You scared us? And you warned us and this is what you have to tell us. You wasted our time. What are you doing? Are you playing with us? So and it is said that Abu lahab
he, he took a handful of Dustin he threw it said that you're not even worth the scent. You know, for instance, if somebody is talking and you don't agree with them, what happens? We just move our hand towards them. Right? Just to shake off what they've said, to kind of disgrace and humiliate what they've said that I don't agree with you. And what you're saying makes no sense. And I don't care about what you're saying. So, this is the kind of reaction that I will have showed to the profits on a lot of them publicly. So we see that he Abdullah was the first person do oppose the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and humiliate him in a private gathering. And also in a public gathering, he was
the first one to do that. And we see that this is when sort of lab was revealed.
So that the lab was revealed that batida Avila have been what up.
And the surah is amazing that how a person by name by the title that he was so proud of, by that title, he is mentioned in the Quran.
And his punishment is also mentioned over there, because no other enemy that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had in his life is mentioned in the Quran, by name, their descriptions are mentioned, but their names are not mentioned of will have is the only one because it will have was a relative of the prophets of Allah.
He was his uncle. Now we see that from the people in general there was no major reaction at this point. Right? People did not readily accept and they also did not reject him outright. But the prophets of Allah sent him from this point onwards. What did he do? He began doing Dawa and worship openly
openly and publicly, which meant that he went to the marketplace. He went to public gatherings he went to Mina during the Hajj season.
He went to the Kaaba, the harem, he went and spoke to people who were visiting Makkah. He, he went and spoke to everybody at every occasion that he possibly could. And he began doing that to them.
There's a report in botany in which we learned that even Abdullah, he said, I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam twice, once in the market of images. While I was sitting in selling my goods and the profit or loss, I was calling out to people while he was wearing a red garment.
So a color that would draw him attention. All right, and then he was calling out to people and he was saying loudly, yeah, a una escuela. Illa Illa Allah to flee who are people c'est la ilaha illa Allah, and you will be successful.
And there was a man following him
throwing pebbles at his feet, causing his feet to bleed. And that man would say, oh people do not listen to him for he is a liar.
Baraka bin Abdullah, he said, I asked the people who is this man? They said, He is someone from the parish. He said I asked them Who is this man behind him following him. He was told this is his uncle Abdullah Rosa, meaning Abu lahab. So his very uncle, imagine how he followed him,
physically abusing him and also publicly embarrassing him. In another report, we learned Ruby or even our bed he said I saw the profits on a lot of dinner with my eyes in the market of Luma jazz saying yeah, you and us, Allah, Allah Illallah tuifly who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would go around, entering into the alleys into the walkways, and people would gather around him. No one would say anything. And the Prophet said a lot of them kept on repeating himself without becoming quiet without becoming silent. In another report, we see that shuffle bunny he mentioned to her death in his book did babble merata muslima that hadn't been hadn't he said that at hedge. When he was at
hedge he heard that. Some people were gathered around and you see in a public place where a lot of people are gathered around you wonder what's going on. Right? So you said, I was told that a man from among the people of Makkah has become sabi.
sabi own who are the
You have read this word, right? Who are the sabio according to one opinion, the people of Makkah, they considered sabio to be those who had abandoned their religion.
All right, they who had abandoned the religion, so
meaning someone who has adopted some other religion, whether it is a religion of your hairless animal or something else. So anyway, he decided he has become savvy. So how did he said I also want to see what was going on who is this man? He said, I saw that Mohammed Salah was calling people to believe in Allah alone, and the people were denying him, and they were physically hurting him. And this went on until midday.
Until midday, constantly the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was calling people until what happened the crowd dispersed that people went to it. Then a girl came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whose headscarf was not covering her properly. She brought a bowl of water and a napkin. The prophets analyzing them took the ball and drank from it. And he also performed will do and then he said, Oh, my daughter, adjust your shawl, and do not fear for your father.
So how does asked Who is that girl? So he was told it is his daughter, Xena, or the lohana. So we see that the prophet SAW a lot of time he began doing public Dawa, despite the fact that people opposed him, despite the fact that they followed him around humiliating him. And it was not strangers who were doing that it was those who were close to him in blood in relationship. But did the prophets are allowed to send him stuff? No, he didn't.
And we will see in our following lesson how the prophets on a lot of them face so much opposition and persecution in different ways. But despite that, he did not stop his efforts.
