Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

How are y'all doing?

00:00:10--> 00:00:21

Earlier Adela Sula, Hill Karim and my beret for the villa him in a shade line of a jean Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Baba strategies Sati were Siddeley emri iraq data melissani.

00:00:22--> 00:01:07

So in our previous lesson, we learned about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was commanded to go public with the Dawa, and he was instructed to begin with his family members. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he began public Dawa by openly calling his family members those who are closest to him in relationship to Islam. Whether he expected hostility from them or not, he invited all of his family members, because Abu lahab we see that from the very beginning he was hostile, but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as part of the public Dawa. What did he do? He invited all of his family members, then after the family, who was Next, the people off Mecca. And in order

00:01:07--> 00:01:49

to do that, what did the prophets have allowed us to do? He climbed on top of the mount Safa. And he invited people by name, he called them out by name. And he did Darwin to them. But did the Darwin stop there? No, we see that gradually the circle increased. Alright, first of all, initially, who was it? Who was it that he did Darwin to? It was private Darwin, right, those whom he thought would respond positively, then family, then people of Makkah, and then even the visitors, those who came to Makkah as visitors as her judge, and we saw different narrations in which we learned that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he would go to Mina, he would go to the different marketplaces, where

00:01:50--> 00:02:30

people from all over Arabia would come to perform Hajj for their business. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also the Dawa, to visitors and like this the message of Islam or the news of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it spread very quickly, throughout Arabia, because you see, Morocco was like the heart. Right? It was the heart of Arabia, anything that happened in Makkah, what would happen? The news would spread everywhere, all right. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he did Darwin like this publicly spreading the message everywhere. What do we learn from this from the strategy of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam? How should a person begin their effort? How? Yes, gradually increase.

00:02:31--> 00:03:13

Now, look at your life also, anything that you want to do, right? Look at your life also, who are the people closest to you and then gradually expand the circle? All right, this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this is how he did our. And then we also see over here that Dawa, and Islam, yes, it begins from home. But should it stay there? Should it stay there? No. To a certain extent, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did our priority. He invited his family members, he invited his neighbors, the people of Makkah. But then what happened? The Dawa stay there. No, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam expanded his efforts. And he reached out to the people who were far from him also

00:03:13--> 00:03:54

far in relationship far in distance, in whatever way the prophets on a lot of sudden reached out to them, right? Because our obligation is to rectify or to improve ourselves, be concerned for our family members. But not just that we should also be concerned for the people of the world in general, for all the people of the world in general. Many times what happens is that our focus is on the Muslim community. Forget about the Muslim community, our own other Pakistani community or Somali community or forget about the larger community, the people of our Masjid, or the people of our neighborhood, or our close circle of friends, we should be concerned about them but our concerns our

00:03:54--> 00:04:40

well wishes should not be limited to them only. The prophets Allah Allah said and began with those who are closest to him, but then he reached out to everybody else also. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he did our openly and then he also practiced Islam, publicly how that he recited Quran out loud in his prayers in the harem, by the Kaaba, and he would also perform the Salah openly before how was it privately secretly the Muslims were would they pray in their homes or in the night or far away in hidden valleys ravines far off places so that they would not be noticed but now we see that the profits on a lot of them especially he was performing Sala publicly, why do you think

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

so? Why do you think so?

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

Okay, so that the people could see why isn't Salah supposed to be an act of worship, which is something between you and Allah and to keep it sincere, you should do it privately. Why did the prophets have a lot of simple forms without publicly? Yes, this was a form of Dawa, as well. You see

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

Dawa is in two ways. You call people to Islam to Allah subhanaw taala in two ways one is through your words. All right? And secondly, through your actions, what kind of actions, your practice of Islam your outward very, very apparent practice of Islam? Two ways. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did that also, you see, sometimes, when we are in a public gathering, and we have to get up and pray, we hesitate. Right? And if we do get up and pray, where do we go? in a room somewhere hidden in a corner somewhere because we're shy, we're afraid to pray in front of people. And that's fine. That's okay. As long as you pray you make sure you pray. But then just because you have to pray out

00:05:44--> 00:06:27

in the open, because there's no other option Do not hesitate. Why? Because this is also a form of Dawa. You see, sometimes your your class at school could be three hours long. And in that is time for Mother's Day. Now, what do you do? Do you pray mother or you don't pray Muslim, or for instance, you may be at work, and you have to take a break to go for your summer. Right? Or you may have, you know, for instance, somebody was telling me about how they had gym, they had to go to the gym to their instructor. And it was early in the morning. And fudger. These days, it begins at about 620 or something. Right? So they said that the hour long, you know, time that they had with their

00:06:27--> 00:06:48

instructor, by the time when they would begin it was before fudger. And by the time they would end it would be too late to prefetcher. So what do you do then? Do you miss your photo? Do you delay? What should you do? This is a time when you speak to the instructor and say, I need a break for just two minutes for just three minutes for just five minutes. I just need to pray in the middle.

00:06:49--> 00:07:22

Right? And this is a form of doing Dawa. Because it gives you a chance, an opportunity to speak about Islam, right to tell the other person about your religion? And if we don't speak to them about it, how are they going to find out? There's so many misconceptions that people have about Islam. So how will they be removed? Either we talked to them, but if we're too afraid to talk to them, then at least practice your Islam so that they will ask a question, they will be curious. Or if they don't ask you at least they will Google right? And they'll find out for themselves.

00:07:23--> 00:08:12

Or at least they will wonder, right? So we see the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This is how he did that. Now, what was the call of the prophets on a lot of them? How did he call people to Islam? What did he say? What were the words that he used? Do you remember any from the instance that I mentioned to you the stories that I mentioned to you? Yes. Yes, yeah, you Hannah's kulula illa Illa Allah to flee who, or people say la ilaha illa Allah, and you will be successful, you will find success, you know that the word success is so attractive. Right? It is so appealing. Everyone wants to know how they can be successful. Right? Whether they're student or they're working, they're married, or they

00:08:12--> 00:08:49

want to be successful in their family life, whatever it may be. People are attracted to the word success. Right? Which is why there's so many books, so many videos, so many articles on the subject, and we see how many people are trying to find out how, how, how they can be successful. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, Yeah, you announced kulula in the lottery, who you will be successful, you will attain success, he will be happy. If you say this, and then we see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would also recite the verses of the Quran in order to do that.

00:08:50--> 00:09:02

So if we ever want to do our, well, we should think about it seriously. All right. How should we do that? What's the best way? What do we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

Okay, the Quran,

00:09:06--> 00:09:09

exactly the message of the Hadith.

00:09:10--> 00:09:53

The message of the Hadith about Allah subhanaw taala, that He is the Creator, that he made us, He is the one with supreme power. He is Rabbil aalameen. Write the names of Allah subhanaw taala His attributes. This is how we do though, because the call of Islam is what call to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is how the prophets of Allah is intended that what what was the reaction of the people? Generally, we see that the audience seemed to be amazed, like overall, like, for instance, the instance that I mentioned to you earlier, but how the prophet SAW a lot of sudden went to the fair of cows or one of those marketplaces and what happened, he would just keep walking and he would

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

repeatedly say, yeah, you know, spooler illa Illa to flow, and what would the people do? They would just

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

Surround him and look at him. And they would just watch him. They wouldn't say anything, they would just listen to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So we see that the audience generally they were amazed at what the prophet said about us. And I was saying, but we see that once they left, then what happened to them? nuclease who are allowed to seem like we learned about the people of ebrahimian? Isn't that how when he broke the idols, and they confronted him, he said, the biggest idol, the largest idol, he broke the rest of them, ask this big idol. So what happened to people realize that yes, Ibrahim is right, we should not be worshipping these idols they understood. But then after a

00:10:38--> 00:11:20

few moments, nukus who are allowed to lose him, they went back on their ways, arrogance, pride, or some excuse, you know, came in and it prevented them from accepting the call of Abraham or listening. Likewise, when the prophets of the light isn't in the doorway, generally the crowds, they were quiet, they were silent, they were shocked. They were amazed. They were somewhat affected. But then what happened? They went back to their own ways. They ignored what the prophet SAW that a lot of them said. But we see that generally, there was no immediate support, nor was there any immediate opposition, right when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam began the Dharma. However, as more people one

00:11:20--> 00:12:08

by one accepted Islam, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam increased his vow, well, what happened? The leaders of the Quraysh, they started feeling insecure. It was the leaders. And we see that every prophet of Allah when he did our, who is it that opposed him? It was the Mullah. It was the leaders. It was the wealthy it was the chiefs of those people who oppose the messengers. Why? Because we see that in Makkah, for example, in the Arab society, idolatry, right, idol worship, was embedded in their culture, it was a part of their culture. Their lives revolved around idolatry, their livelihood, their business, their trade, everything revolved around idolatry, because you see that

00:12:08--> 00:12:54

people came to Makkah, all right, and they brought in, you know, their offerings or their sacrifice in the name of Gods in the name of idols. And who was it that was primarily benefiting from all of this? It was the leaders of the kadesh. They were making all the money. Recently, somebody was telling me about how in India, they, they have seen so many places that are made by Muslims, even not just the Hindus, shrines and things like that. So a grave, for example, and one sheet, right, one piece of cloth, one sheet that is put on the grave, in order to show respect to the one in the grave. All right, that costs hundreds and 1000s of rupees, sometimes so much money, and the same

00:12:54--> 00:13:35

sheet is then removed, and then sold again. Somebody else comes in, buys it, and then puts it on the grave. And this business continues, and you wonder who is making all that profit? Where's all that money going? I mean, those in the grave, they don't need any food, they don't have any medical expenses. Right? They don't need anything like that. Where's the money going? It's the people who have made those shrines and who are running those shrines. Right. So likewise, in Makkah, who is it that was running this business of idolatry, it was the courage it was the leaders of the kadesh. It was a wealthy people. So for them to leave, idolatry meant what? leaving their money, losing

00:13:35--> 00:14:17

everything. So this is why they were concerned that if we accept the message of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, then that said, we have lost everything. Why would anybody bother to come to Makkah? Where would we make our money from? And at the same time, their belief in the idols was also very strong, they were afraid of their idols, they were afraid and this happens in many such cultures, where people have you know, certain beliefs about for instance, the dead or certain idols or certain spirits, then they begin to fear them. Right? So they were not willing to leave their idols at all. Also, we see that see that another problem was that they did not want that Muhammad Sallallahu

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

Sallam should have superiority over them.

00:14:20--> 00:15:00

A man who has been always respected in Arabia, in Makkah as the leader of his people of his tribe of his clan, now, all of a sudden, if he accepts that, yes, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is a messenger of Allah, and I will listen to him. What does it mean? He's accepting that the status of the prophets on a lot of them is greater than his, you understand? So this is why they felt insecure. So basically, it was their pride that prevented them from accepting the call of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then we see that the bundle Hashem the Banu Hashim, what kind of clan where they have the Cornish very

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

Normal, right? They were the caretakers of the car, but also people who serve the Hajaj. Now, there was a lot of competition, all right, in Arabia between these clans, or the sub tribes of the polish. All right? What was this competition? You see, this is very normal in any group of people, if there's a person, or if there's a particular set of people who have been assigned some work, and that work brings them money, that work brings them fame, that work brings them respect, you think other people are just going to sit and watch? What are they going to try to do? Do the same, right in order to enjoy the same benefits?

00:15:39--> 00:16:10

You understand? So the bundle Hashem they serve the pilgrims, other tribes. So for example, by numazu, they did the same thing. They serve the pilgrims so that they would be well respected in their society. So it was like a race. Now, if they were to accept that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from the Banu Hashim, he is a messenger, how are the rest of the tribes supposed to beat the Banu Hashim in this? How were they? It was not possible for them. So they said, You know what, we're not going to even acknowledge the fact that he's a messenger of Allah.

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

We're not going to even accept that he isn't he is the Messenger of Allah.

00:16:16--> 00:17:04

Then another thing that prevented them from accepting the message of a sort of loss of a lot of them was there you can say, affiliation with their tribe, or rather their respect for their forefathers. Because if a person was noble in that society, why was he noble? One of the main reasons was his blood, his lineage. All right, if a person was wealthy, yes, that made him Noble. But more than that, what made him noble was who his ancestors were, who his forefathers were. So the forefathers were very well respected in that society, which is why we see that Quraysh for example, the man whose name was Qureshi, I mean, he came many, many, many years before Hamilton, Madison, but we see

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

that the people of that time, they were very proud of being the children of Bangladesh, which is why they were known as plushies.

00:17:13--> 00:17:29

So you understand their tribal affiliations or their or their being called by their ancestors were not just for identification, but it was also a source of pride for them, that I am the son of or I have the blood of kadesh.

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

You understand? So for them to say that, okay, our forefathers did chick, they were worshipping idols, and that was wrong.

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

This was like humiliating themselves. Because if you believe your forefathers, who are you humiliating, in fact, yourself.

00:17:47--> 00:18:10

So this is the reason why they did not accept what the prophet sallallahu Sallam was telling them. And we see that overall, people were very happy with the status quo, and they didn't want that to be changed. They didn't want that to be disturbed. And this is why we see that where people disbelieved in the prophets on a lot of cinema, it didn't stop there. What happened? They also opposed him.

00:18:12--> 00:18:55

So you understand, when he went public, doing our to them? What was the reaction of the people? What was the reaction, initially quiet? And then they disbelieved, and then that disbelief turned into opposition also, how is it that they oppose the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in different ways, many different ways? One was that they call him different names. Because if they weren't accepting that he was the Messenger of Allah, then Who was he? What was he? They have to come up with something right? Like for example, even today, if people don't want to accept the fact that Hamilton Lawson was a prophet of Allah, they have to come up with something some explanation, right? So for

00:18:55--> 00:19:34

instance, insults for can I afford to eat we learn what color Latina cafaro in Heather Illa, if cunniff Dada, who, who I know who are ladies coming home, they say that this is a lie, that he has fabricated. So in other words, they call him a liar. And they said, some other people have helped him meaning he has he has got this information from some other people. Then in the following verses, Allah says wakanow acetylated are willing, they say it's just the stories of the people of the past Exotica that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has recorded them for he a terminology booklet and was Lila and they read out to him in the morning in the evening. Then we see that in these verses only Allah

00:19:34--> 00:20:00

says we'll call you Molly Heather Russell yaku, Tom William Shiva as work, Lola en de la la Malecon. felco numero uno de la what kind of a messenger is he? Who eats food and he walks in the marketplaces. How come an angel has not been sent with him in order to warn. So anyway, they described him as a liar. They described him as a magician. They described him as a kahin soothsayer any descriptive

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

They could come up with they gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we learned about this interesting incident where at one occasion we'll even valeera would even Molina was a poet. Not just abort but also very wealthy, influential. A person of nobility you could say in that society he was a father off. Khalid bin Walid, okay.

00:20:23--> 00:21:12

So when even Molina what happened he heard the prophets on the bodice and and recite the Quran. And in particular, he heard him recite sort of min i o 123. How amin Tansy Look at him in a light, Aziz and Arlene, laugh at them be. We'll call it Toby shadid or ecobee the toll lair Illa Illa who Illa Hill Muslim hammy the revelation of the book is from Allah Who is the mighty the knowing, the one who forgives sins accepts repentance, he is severe in retribution, possessor of might lead Illa a level there is no god but him a good Muslim and to him as a return. So they will even Molina when he heard this, he said, Well law he not some miracle me Mohammed an elephant calaman madwoman, kurama

00:21:12--> 00:21:31

nc while I'm in crime engine, that by Allah I have just heard such calam such speech from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speech that is not of a human being and it is not speech of a jinn. Meaning it cannot be the word of a human it cannot be the Word of God.

00:21:32--> 00:22:22

And he said what in Allah hula Halawa, it has some, it has its own sweetness. It has its own inner Lila follower. It has its own rhythm. We're in the arleigh hula movement. Its top is fertile, meaning its height is a beautiful one in a speller who loves the meaning its beginning, its ending. It's beautiful from the beginning to the end. Throughout. Every word of his speech is beautiful. What in the hell you're alone when you're alone. It surpasses everything, and nothing can surpass it. It defeats everything and nothing can defeat it. So this is how we'll even Molina described the Quran and Walid manolito was a disbeliever. He never accepted Islam. So what happened? A Buddha and

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

certain other people when they heard that will lead has been praising the Quran. They went to Waleed and they said that your people will not be satisfied until you say something against the Quran just as you praised it. So Waleed, he wanted his votes, right? He wanted his support. He didn't want to lose that support. So he asked the Buddha, what should I say? Abu Jamal said, Call Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam a madman say that he's a madman say that he's Majnoon.

00:22:52--> 00:23:00

Waleed said, but he is not much known. We know the signs of madness. He does not behave erratically. Nor is his speech confused.

00:23:02--> 00:23:21

Right? He's not much known. It's not possible. And there are people today who will describe the Prophet sallallahu something like this also narrow the builder. But if you think about it, how is it possible that a person would show madness and just one part of his life? And in every other area of his life? He's perfect. He's fine. There's no problem.

00:23:22--> 00:23:27

So we'll leave even he said, He's not mad. It's we can't say that.

00:23:28--> 00:23:39

I would have said call him aka him. a soothsayer, a fortune teller? Well, he said no, but he is not a fortune teller. He does not speak like them. I would outside Okay, call him Asahi, a magician.

00:23:40--> 00:23:56

what he'd said, but he's not a magician, either. We have seen magic. And we have seen people who practice magic. He practices 90 of the art of exorcism nor the tying of knots. I mean, magicians what do they do? Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he doesn't do anything like that.

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

So I would have said, Okay, why don't you do that he's a port.

00:24:02--> 00:24:06

Say that he's a port. Now we'll eat separate. I'm the best boy.

00:24:08--> 00:24:21

He didn't want to say that Hamilton was and it was aboard. Anyway, while it said leave me alone. I'll come up with something. I'll think about what I should say. And our last panel data revealed the verses of pseudo Talmudic

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

in which we learned that Allah says that only women who are locked to wahida leave me with the one whom I created alone, which are all doula Humala, Mum, doula and to whom I granted extensive wealth wobba Nina Shahada and children present with him when my heart doula who Tamika and I spread everything before him eating his life, some mail tomorrow and then he desires that I should give him even more color no way in no cannoli. Aya Tina are neither. Indeed he has been toward our versus obstinate, so he co hosts Arruda I will cover him

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

With punishment in Norfolk Cara waka Dara, he thought and this is what will he did he thought, and he deliberated as if he was really deep in thought, thinking, what should I say? How should I make up for? or How should I contradict that praise? How should I humiliate the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Nova caravaca de Falco de la kafer Katara. Allah says, may he be destroyed how he deliberated? So, mapa de la kafer Katara some another, then he thought, then he looked, he considered meaning again, some Mabasa were basara then he found and he scowled, because when a person is thinking, he's confused, he doesn't know what to say. Then what happens in his thought,

00:25:48--> 00:26:36

when he's deep in his thought he also frowns. So my Adubato was stuck about over after all that thought, What was his reaction? At the bottle was stuck. He turned away, and he was arrogant for Allah enter that LSC heroin, you thought. And finally, he said, that this is nothing except magic. This is magic. In Heather Illa, colon Bashar. This has nothing except the word of a human being. So you see how he went back on his words? Initially, he said, this is not the word of a human being origin. Now he's saying this is the word of a human being. Before he said, this is not magic. Now you say it is magic. And why is it that he said this is magic? Why did he come up with this even

00:26:36--> 00:27:17

though he knew that it was not magic? Because the words of the prophets on the laws and rather the Quran, it had a deep effect on people. Right, and the people who believed in Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, they would be changed for the rest of their lives. So you say, just like magic, it separates family members, right? It divides families. It has an effect on a person's mind. Just like that the words of Hamilton a lot of them are having a similar effect. But we see that the truth of the prophets that allows them was evident. There's so many items that defend the messenger sallallahu sallam, instead of Saba if 46 Allah says all say to them in them or a Lacombe wider, I

00:27:17--> 00:28:02

advise you with just one thing and the qumola he must know a ferrata some motherfucker, that you stand for Allah, meaning for the sake of Allah, seeking truth, you know, stand individually or with others, so Matata for Kuru, and think mervi sahibi. Come and Gina. Your companion is not mad, there's no madness with him, meaning, think about Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam without any bias. Is he actually mad? Would you describe him as a madman? No, you couldn't describe him as a madman. In sort of unison 16 unless as you say to them, meaning those who deny you lotia alojamento to Allah. If Allah wanted, I would have never recited anything to you. I would never have informed anything to

00:28:02--> 00:28:49

you. For the lobbyists to fukumura min. Probably I have stayed amongst you for a lifetime before this. Because a prophet sallallahu Sallam he was 14 years of age, right when he received Prophethood. All his life he had lived were in Makkah, the people of Mecca knew him they knew that he he would not utter a lie. They knew that he was trustworthy, he was reliable. They knew that never before did he strive? Or Or did he try to gain some fame or anything like that? He was a very normal human being fatherless to feed them remarkably, in total uncouth, I have 48 we learned well, American tatelman cuddly human keytab and voila, Toby emenike that you did not recite before it any

00:28:49--> 00:29:02

scripture, the prophets, Allah Lawson was only right. He could not read he could not write, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. And we see that the prophets on a lot of them never even uttered verses of Forestry.

00:29:03--> 00:29:42

He was not a port at all. And if you just look at the words of the Hadith, and the words of the Quran, you will find such a huge difference between them. The Quran is unique. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was not aboard. You know, some scholars have said the prophets of Allah Islam never uttered a complete set of verses of poetry. Never. He didn't do that. So if he didn't do that, how could he come up with the Quran? Could they call him apart? Could they describe him like that? No, they couldn't. So this was just a tactic of the bush deikun where they described him with different words, because this is what happens when a person doesn't accept the truth and he has to

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

come up with

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

excuses. Right? And then when he comes up with a list of excuses, what is he doing in reality contradicting himself because on one occasion, they would say he's mad, then he would say he's a magician. He's very knowledgeable, then they would say this is all a scheme. They will

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

contradict themselves. Sometimes they would say he's a magician, sometimes they would say magic has been done on him. Sometimes they would say he's under the effect of some shaman. Then we see that the mystery cone or as the leaders in particular, who were in Mecca, they try to stop the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how they reached out to a pupil, who was Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had you can say raised him because when the Prophet sallallaahu son was eight years old, he was under who doubleton it, right. So, and I will tell you, it was from the Banu Hashim, right, and he was a man with with a lot of authority in that tribe, he was considered

00:30:45--> 00:31:33

one of the leaders of the Banu Hashim. So they went to Abu Talib, and they requested him to stop Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And they tried many times, they tried many times. And I will tell him, he was told that you either stop Mohammed Salah his enemy yourself, or you hand him over to us, and we will take care of him. In other words, we will kill him. Because no one could just go and kill a man from the parish. Because if they did, that they would be waging war against the crush. The people of Quraysh themselves could also not kill their own man, you understand someone from their own tribe, they couldn't kill him. If they did that, they would be bringing shame on themselves, you

00:31:33--> 00:32:15

understand? So see how Allah subhanaw taala protected the Prophet sallallahu sallam, no outsider could kill him and no one from the Quran could kill him either. So there was only one possibility, which was this own Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. You understand? Once he's disarmed, then take action. Now in order to disarm him who has to take that action, the leader, the chief, and who would that be a battalion. So they went up to a battalion and they said, either you stop him and if you cannot stop him, then hand him over to us, disown him, hand him over to us and we'll deal with him. And if you really want, we'll give you one of our men so that you can make him your tribesman, you

00:32:15--> 00:32:20

can make him your nephew. So I will tell him, he was angry.

00:32:21--> 00:32:29

That what kind of offer is this? You take my son and you kill him. And you give me your so that I feed him and make him fat?

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

What kind of exchange is this?

00:32:34--> 00:33:14

Alright, so anyway, when they when they pressured a lot of a lot of aquatic, he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he and he said to him, basically that have mercy on me, I am an old man. Have mercy on yourself. Stop this. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his response? What was it, that there's no way I can stop it? And there's different versions of this, that how the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he showed his determination, basically that there was no way he was going to stop. In one version, we see that we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him Do you see the sun? And he said, Yes. He said, just as you cannot light your staff on fire from the sun,

00:33:14--> 00:33:54

meaning That's impossible. Can a person do that? Pick up their stick or their stuff and light it on fire with the sun. Is that possible? No, it's not possible. He said just like that it is not possible for me to stop my mission. So when will darlin saw the determination of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he went back to the leaders of the kadesh. And he basically said, give up hope he has all my support, and I am not going to stop him. And you cannot do anything to him, either. So this plan also failed. Now what happened? They couldn't stop Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam like this. So they tried mocking at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they tried mocking at him. They tried

00:33:54--> 00:34:13

mocking at the Muslims ridiculing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his message harassing him harassing the Muslims in public inserted MBI a 36 we learned what acha Latina cafaro in ACTA hironaka illa, Hosea. And when whenever the disbelievers See you, they make fun of you.

00:34:14--> 00:34:54

Whenever they saw him, they made fun of him. Can you imagine being laughed at? You go out of your house and people are laughing at you. They're talking about you. They're whispering amongst themselves and it's clear that they're whispering about you. And then they they break out into into you know, like laughing excessively just imagine. So the prophets have a lot of sentiment he had to face this. We see that one night or two the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sick, he was not able to pray the night prayer and a woman from the Quran. She said that she was the wife of Abu lahab she came to him and he said that I think your devil has left you. So to do what was revealed now a

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

darker book a warmer color.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

We see that on one occasion of Buddha. He ought

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

money to a man and that man came to a hotel saying give me my money, give me my money. A Buddha Hall said, Go get it from Muhammad Sallallahu said and this was like a prank you could see, because that man would show up now at the house of the prophets on the walls and demanding money from him. All right.

00:35:16--> 00:35:50

Because it was like a Buddha was saying, Muhammad has my money sallallahu sallam. So you go to him and collect my money from him and the Prophet sallallahu Of course, he did not have any money of Abuja health, but he would have to give it to that men. All right, why? Because the Buddha Allah said, so it was like a prank on the prophets on the Lotus and what happened that man went to Muhammad Sallallahu and said, give me give me my money. Abu Jamal said it's with you. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Okay, fine, let's get your money. So he went to the house of Abuja, Hill, knocked at the door of wood, yo, you surprised and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Give the man

00:35:50--> 00:36:35

his money. And he was so scared, he gave the money. Why? Because he saw what others didn't see. And what was that? According to some versions, a whole lot of camels that looked angry, about to attack a Buddha. A Buddha was afraid. And he gave them money. So this is just an example of how the machico they, they didn't spare any effort in embarrassing Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. But we see that it backfired on them. Then we see that another tactic they used was when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. recite the Quran, they would drown out the recitation, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would speak to the people they would make so much noise that the words of the Prophet sallallahu

00:36:35--> 00:36:45

Sallam could not be heard. For instance, when he went to the marketplace when he went to the to Mina, saying Yeah, Johan escuela ilaha illAllah tuifly, who, who would be following him?

00:36:46--> 00:36:55

Abu lahab or sometimes Abu Jamal, and what would they say Don't listen to him. He's a madman, he's a magician. Don't let him affect your mind.

00:36:56--> 00:37:14

So when the prophets Allah Lawson would recite the Quran also they would make noise into it facilita 26 we learn what color Medina cafaro let us early on well lo fi La La come who that do not listen to this call and when the Quran is being recited make noise, so that you can overcome.

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

So they used different tricks or different ways you can say to distract people from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one was making noise when the prophet SAW the lights and recited the Quran or he spoke to the people. And this is amazing because they themselves went in the night to listen to the recitation of the Quran.

00:37:39--> 00:37:57

You know, in the daytime, what would they do? make noise so that the profits or losses and could not be hurt, but in the nighttime, what would they do? Go secretly in order to listen to the recitation of the Quran, from the mouths of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we learned that Abuja has been case Abu sufian these three people

00:37:58--> 00:38:28

they went imagine Abuja amongst them. They went in the night standing outside the house of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam secretly. Alright, and what were they doing trying to listen to the Quran, but at the same time, in the daytime, they would make noise in order to drown out that recitation into little annamma 33 Wheeler in the narrow limo in the hula huizhou New Caledonia Kowloon we know that oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam you are saddened by what they say.

00:38:30--> 00:38:49

The Criticism The mockery, the prophets Allah Lawson would feel sad, but he was told for in the home lay you cut the blue NACA when I Kinabalu Amina Be it La Jolla, how do they do not call you untruthful? It is the verses of Allah that these people are rejecting.

00:38:50--> 00:38:56

They don't have a problem with you. They have a problem with what the message that Allah has said they don't want to accept that.

00:38:57--> 00:39:38

Then we see that another tactic they adopted was of diverting people distracting people was that a man by the name of Northern hat is what he did was that he went to a sham. And he heard a lot of interesting stories over there. And when he returned to Makkah, every time, you know, he would see the profits of a lot of them some were doing that were reciting the Quran, he would also set up shop nearby and start narrating these interesting stories. So that the people would leave the profits on a lot of cinnamon they would come to him. Because remember that one of the men who described the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in in one of the marketplaces at HUD season, what did he say that the

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

Prophet sallallahu Sallam was walking and the people gathered around him. Right? And wherever there is a crowd, what happens? Everybody goes there, so the crowd only grows. So now that I've been hired is what did he do? He would start gathering a crowd.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

around him also, in competition with the crowd that was gathering around the profits of a lot is

00:40:07--> 00:40:14

why so that the people would not go to listen to what the prophet sallallahu Sallam had to say instead, they would come to him.

00:40:16--> 00:40:57

And he would tell them interesting stories. All right. And also what he did was that he hired or he bought some singing, dancing women. And he would have these shows basically, where people would come in and watch the show and they would be distracted from the dharwad the profits on a lot of them. And this is described in sort of lachemann is a woman a nassima, Yesh De La Hoya de Lille de la and Sabina liability and when Tokido was our will our economy and of the people is He who buys the amusement of speech, meaning music, as well as singing and such stories. Why in order to mislead people from the way of Allah

00:40:59--> 00:41:00

subhanaw taala

00:41:02--> 00:41:12

another tactic of the mush deikun was that they started finding faults in the message of the Prophet sallallahu

00:41:13--> 00:42:03

Sallam so for instance, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he conveyed the message of though hate, he warned the people that you will be resurrected, that the Quran is from Allah. So what would the machine do? They would argue with the prophets of Allah said him concerning these matters. So for instance, in sort of the scene is 78 we learned a lot about an mF felon. When I see a color menu here, Aloma Hiromi, one of the men in Makkah, he got this bone, right that was old and half decayed. And he basically held it up and he crushed it in his hands. And he said, Who can resurrect this when it has disintegrated? Who can bring this back to life when it has disintegrated? So you see all the

00:42:03--> 00:42:48

people who are watching? What did they say? Yeah, there's no resurrection is not possible. Yeah, what Mohammed Salah was saying is a lie. It's not true. So you see how they raised objections or they they argued with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the very message that he was conveying. Likewise, in total and am I a 148 Weaver and say a poodle Latina Shaku Lucia lahoma Shaka wanna una? They said, You know what, if Allah wanted, we would never have done schicke if we are worshipping idols, we are only doing this because Allah let us and if Allah let us that means he likes it. He wants this for us. So don't blame us. Blame Who?

00:42:50--> 00:43:00

Blame Who? What did they say blame Allah. It's not our fault. And if we're doing it, and Allah is not punishing us, we're thriving. Then we're right.

00:43:02--> 00:43:04

Likewise, we see that

00:43:05--> 00:43:10

intro to zoflora 531. They said, What kalu Lola No, Zilla. hodel Quran La La La Jolla mineral Korea. Tina, I'll leave

00:43:12--> 00:43:23

that if there was to be a messenger. Then why not a big noble wealthy men from either mcca or from five.

00:43:24--> 00:43:51

Why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they came up with one thing after the other. We learned that in in the Quran, it was revealed that in the como Mata buena husafell Johanna you and that which you worship, meaning your idols are going to be the fuel of the fire. So you know what the mishti coincide. Oh, well, he started Sam is also worship besides Allah So are you saying that he will also end up in the fire?

00:43:53--> 00:44:36

In total Surah 557. This is mentioned well I'm Mallory Babu, Maria, Masada in a coma come into your Sadoon. When the son of Maria was presented as an example, immediately your people laughed aloud. So you see publicly they would they would you know, raise such questions, right in order to laugh at the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in order to criticize the message and what would happen, the masses, they will be misguided. In sort of hatred is 97 Allah says will occur the narrow Lama and mega Luca Sadhguru kabhi Maya Kowloon, we know that your heart Your chest is constrained because of what they say. The prophets Allah Lawson would feel so uncomfortable because of the constant criticism of the

00:44:36--> 00:44:50

machine. Then we see that the machine also came up with one new thing which was that they would demand miracles from him. They would ask him, okay, you say that there will be a final hour they will be a day of judgment. When is it going to be?

00:44:51--> 00:45:00

When is it going to happen? In total Islam is 90 to 93. We learned what carlu landmannalaugar hotdoodle dynamin are the embora they say we will

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

Never believe in you until you break open for us from the ground a spring or until you have a garden of palm trees and grapes and make rivers gush forth within them enforce or you make the sky fall upon us and fragments or you bring Allah and the angels before us. Or you should have a house of gold, or you should go up in the sky before us, we should see you going up in the sky. And even then we will not believe in you. So you see, they demanded miracles, extraordinary events, unusual things from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:45:37--> 00:45:46

in total of 187 also return Yes, aluna carnosa rT a Yana masa, they ask you about the hour, when is it arrival? When is it going to be?

00:45:47--> 00:46:14

And for these obviously, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not have any answer. If they asked him during mounts are fine to gold, could he do that? This was beyond his ability. If they asked him, when is the hour going to be good? He give them an answer. He couldn't. So there is such questions to him for which there was no answer. Then they tried negotiating with him also. They said, You know what, just touch our idols. Just show some respect to them.

00:46:16--> 00:46:20

Or just worship them one day, and we will worship a lot alone the next day.

00:46:22--> 00:47:01

All right. So they've tried they tried to come to some middle ground with the profits of a lot of them, you know, they said let's compromise you compromise a little bit. We compromise a little bit what dulo to do, you know, for you to you know, in total Israel is 7374. This is mentioned we're in Canada left in hoonah. Canada do hyena like later 30 Alena Lila will either let the hadoo Kahala they bribed him basically, that if you do that, we will take you as a friend. So little caffeine was revealed. Let our Buddha matter. I do not worship that which you worship. Then they also spread false propaganda about the Prophet symbolize and they spread lies and rumors about him. So for

00:47:01--> 00:47:40

instance, when the people would be coming for Hajj, they would stand outside of Makkah, outside of Mecca, on the roads. And as the people were coming in, they would warn them, Look, there is a man, his name is this, he looks like this. He says this, don't listen to him don't even go near him. So while the people would be afraid, many were also curious, then who is this man? And what is he saying? anyway? So in their curiosity, they would go to the Prophet satellizer. So you see how this backfire? Again, we see that to Fabian amaura dosi. He was the leader of his tribe. When he came into Makkah, he was warned. And he got so scared initially that he plugged his ear so he wouldn't

00:47:40--> 00:48:21

even accidentally hear the profits of a lot of fun. But what happened when God said, I'm a man of reason, I'm a knowledgeable man, I think I'm good enough that I can judge myself, at least I should listen to what he has to say. If it's good, I'll accept it. And if it's not, then no worries, then we see that the machine will also challenge the prophets of Allah to answer certain questions. So they would consult the hood they went to Medina, they spoke with the Jewish scholars, and they said well ask him this and this and this. So for instance, about use of early salon, or about little codename, or about the US herbal cough, right, and what happened? What happened the way he came? Now

00:48:21--> 00:49:02

we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam continued his Dawa. Despite this opposition, despite this hostility, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam quietly he taught the Muslims in the house of a common outcome. All right, remember the House of Commons outcome? He was one of the first 10 people to accept Islam was about 18 years of age and his house was near the mounts of a busy place. And this is where many people accepted Islam including remodel Dillard who are malpani acid sohaib, Rumi, and as the Muslims were learning in secret in private from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this shows that the torture and the persecution also began. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself was a victim

00:49:02--> 00:49:21

of this persecution, and many Muslims were a victim of this persecution. What are the details of that persecution? inshallah we will learn about that in the next lesson. In sha Allah Subhan Allah panicle long will be handy conditional La ilaha illa Anta Mustapha Luca wanted to be like Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
