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

I'm really cool

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

How are y'all doing?

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

mother who want to suddenly are allowed to give him a my birth for the villa him in a shape Lynette rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Allah Australia sadhana you were Sidley Emery while in Iraq that Emily Sani of Gokhale so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he went public with the dharwad, what was the reaction of the people? Overall? Okay, that was initially but then eventually that silence turned into opposition and hostility, right? And we see that they oppose the message of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in different ways. What were some of the ways that we discussed yesterday? in which they oppose the message of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Yeah, okay. They

00:00:51--> 00:01:31

wouldn't listen to him when he would recite the Quran instead, they would make noise so that others could also not listen. All right, what else? Okay, they would make excuses like for instance, they would say that he is a liar or a soothsayer. All right. Okay, so they would spread false propaganda lies about him. So for instance, the visitors are the people who are coming into Makkah, or even people who lived in Makkah. They were misinformed about the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So people were afraid of even going near little sort of loss analog radio send them What else? Good, they will also find faults or problems in the message that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conveyed. So for

00:01:31--> 00:02:17

example, okay, so they would demand miracles, all right, or if that how the Quran, it tells us about resurrection, right about the Hereafter, and the mu shikun. They rejected a hero and birth resurrection. So for example, at one occasion a man he just picked up a bone and crumbled it and said who can resurrect this, this this bone when it has disintegrated? Okay, any other way? Okay, so they would also insult openly mark at the Quran at Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam at the Muslims in general. And we see that the machico basically they left nothing out in their opposition to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they tried everything, everything. they mocked, they made fun, they

00:02:17--> 00:02:58

spread lies, they they gave labels, they criticized, they argued they debated, they came up with any excuse possible to not accept the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and of the excuses they came up with was that how could alesund a human messenger, right? Or why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because they also had a problem with accepting the prophets of Allah sent him as a messenger. Because for some people, it was why Muhammad said a lot of send them over us and for others, it was why been washing over us, right? And we see that they raised objections, they demanded miracles, they justified their ship. And this is the reason why the monkey Sutras, the sutras that were

00:02:58--> 00:03:36

revealed in the meccan era before the prophets, Allah Allah migrated to Medina, what do those soldiers speak about? What are the general themes that are covered in those soldiers, though hate the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, because the mystical, were stubborn on their ship, they weren't willing to give it up. And they came up with excuse after excuse to hold on to their idolatry. And remember that it was their, their idolatry because of which they were not willing to accept the prophets of Allah and remember how important idolatry was to them. Right? their economic system, their social system, their status, their wealth, everything was associated with idolatry. So if they

00:03:36--> 00:04:17

left idolatry, that would mean giving up everything, right? But the fact is that when you give up something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, what does Allah give you? something even better? Because in the Quran, we learn that we're in the who are the CRO laka? Will you tell me that this person is a vehicle for you, and also a vehicle for your people? And by the way, one of the meanings of Victor is that a source of fame, a source of mentioned meaning, a source of fame, this put on is what will bring you true honor. This Koran will bring you good name. And we see that that is what happened. Because before the prophets on a lot of them who cared about makup, who cared about hijas,

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

nobody. But when Islam spread, what happened, the Romans, they're coming into attack the Muslims, and then we see that there is battles eventually with the versions Also, before Islam, nobody cared about Arabia. Nobody. So anyway, we see that the monkey soldiers they revolve around the message of the hate. What else? a resurrection. Abarth the certainty of Abarth its proofs, its events, its details. Likewise, another theme that the monkeys will discover is proof of prophethood right proof of prophethood likewise mentioned of past nations, how they denied how the previous nations they denied

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

They suffered as a result of that denial. Now we see that the machico when they failed in terms of argument and proof, and they were not able to persuade the Muslims to leave Islam, you know, for instance, if you mock it someone or if you frightened them, then you would think that they would listen to you. But when this didn't work, and the Muslims were firm on their Islam, the prophet said, a lot of them also continued his Dawa. Despite the opposition that he faced, what happened, the mu shikun resorted to torture and persecution, they turn to violence. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself was a victim of this violence, Abuja club and a bit more aid, and

00:05:42--> 00:06:19

other such people, Abu lahab, all of them didn't just verbally insult the prophets that a lot of them they also physically harassed him. Like for instance, we learn in Buhari, that at one occasion of the 11 was earth he mentioned that once the prophets are the loudest and was praying at the cargo and Abuja Hall and his companions, they were sitting there, and one of them he said, that who will go and bring the placenta of a camel of the bunu. So and so because there was like a dump an area where the people would throw their garbage, and somebody had recently slaughtered a camel. And they had thrown the innards, the inner parts of the camel over there stuff that nobody eats, nobody uses.

00:06:20--> 00:07:02

So what happened? One of them it is said that it was broke when he got up. And it is so sad because he was one of the neighbors of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and not just a neighbor. He used to be a friend before. He used to be a friend. So what he did, he went, he got up he went and he brought those end trails that placenta, or those innards of the camel, and he put it on the back of the prophets, Allah notice and in between his shoulders when the prophet SAW a lot of snow wasn't subdued. Now imagine, first of all, how filthy that stuff is, right? And then it had been sitting for a long time. And even if it was not a long time that it was sitting for it must have been

00:07:02--> 00:07:29

smelling bad. And heavy because a camel is a huge animal. Huge. So the innards of the camel are also quite big and heavy. And when they were put on the shoulders, the back of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he was not able to get he was stuck. He was pressed pressure of the weight of those innards are delivering was rude. He said I was watching but I could not do anything to stop it.

00:07:30--> 00:08:13

You know why? Because our beloved was rude. Who was he? He was not from the kurush he was not a slave either. But he was from the lower class. And if he got up indefensible sort of muscle a lot Isn't he could have been killed. He could have been killed. Because he did not have any social protection. Right. So what happened then was shikun, they began to laugh at the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and in their laughter they were falling on each other. And the profits of Allison was not able to lift his head until someone went and told Fatima de la Ana and Fatima, a little girl, she came, and she threw that off the back of the prophets, Allah, Allah. And then the prophets, Allah

00:08:13--> 00:08:34

Madison raised his head and he said, Oh Allah deal with the Quran. And he said that three times. And he mentioned all those people who did this to him by name. And our beloved Miss Ruth said, that when the prophets that a lot of them curse them by name, it was unbearable for them. Because who was praying against them? Muhammad Sallallahu is and where was he praying against them near the cargo.

00:08:35--> 00:09:15

And what happened, that they were convinced that the draw of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would be accepted. They were convinced, but still they did not change their attitude. And it was accepted indeed, because what happened at the Battle of others, the first battle each and every single one of these people was finished. And we see that they personally attacked the prophets on a lot of animals. So they tried to hurt him. So for instance, Abu lahab he was an uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, not just Uncle He lived in the same area also he was he lived, he was one of the neighbors. And we see that two of the prophets daughters were engaged to the two sons of

00:09:15--> 00:09:57

Abu lahab it was just engagement, the marriage had not been consummated, because there is no evidence that the marriage had been consummated. But anyway, Abu lahab in his opposition to the sort of loss of Allah said him He instructed his sons to an LD engagement. So basically, the consummation of marriage did not happen, but the engagement was broken off. You know, in certain ballot, we learned oxy movie Heather Ballard was under hidden behind a ballot. No, I swear by the city and you are held in the city held meaning halaal that people have considered you halaal meaning they have they have considered this halaal for themselves that they can attack you. They can hurt you. They

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

can harass you while you are in the most serious

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

Cridland, you know, where even a murder is safe. Because the machico they held the harem to be the most sacred place where every person's honor, their life was sacred. It was safe, which is why if anyone had committed murder, and they were on the run, where would they go? They would go to the karma. Because if he was found over there, nobody would kill him. Nobody would touch him, until he left the huddle, then he would be killed, then somebody could hurt him. But what untangling behind that, but what is wrong with these people, that they have forgotten the sanctity of the heroine in opposition to you? We see that in a Timothy there is another report in which we learned even our

00:10:40--> 00:11:21

best or below on who he said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was once performing Sadat, when Abu Jamal came to him and said, Have I not forbidding you from this? Because he did not like that the prophets of Allah doesn't perform the prayer, especially when you perform the prayer publicly. Because that will draw a lot of attention. And that was also the prophets a lot of times declaration of, you know, it's, it's my choice. You can't stop me. Right? It's an expression of freedom, that I can pray openly, publicly, and you should not stop me I have the right to do this and I am worshipping Allah. So a Buddha he did not like the Sunnah. And he would repeatedly stop the prophets of the lotus and

00:11:21--> 00:12:02

from performing the Salah. So at one occasion when he found him praying, he said, why not forbidding you from this oven up forbidding you from this ever not forbidding you from this? So the prophets of Allah sent him turned and scolded him. Look at how the prophets are a lot of them was also confident. He was not afraid. So Abuja help said, you know that no one has more to call for assistance than me, meaning I you know, that I can deal with you, you don't, you can't stop me. You can't oppose me. So what happened? The last panel data revealed, Senator of Sylvania that he says that he will call his friends in opposition to you, we will also call this event here, meaning the

00:12:02--> 00:12:46

guards of hell. So even our best said, By Allah, if he had called his friends, meaning a Buddha, then the guards of hell would have seized him. So a Buddha, we see that he was at the forefront in opposition to not just the Muslims, but even particularly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we see that this was not just a case of the Buddha Hall, but generally the leaders the wealthy, they opposed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, so who came forward who accepted Islam, it was generally the weak, it was the oppressed. Because the poor people, they have nothing to lose when they embrace Islam. In fact, they have a lot to gain. Because faith gives you freedom, it gives you richness that

00:12:46--> 00:13:12

nothing else can write a man, it sets you free, it liberates you, and a man enriches you. It fills your heart with contentment and satisfaction, such satisfaction that nothing else can bring. And we see that the people who are suffering meaning in their lives, whether it is from poverty, or from you know, ridicule at the hands of people, whatever kind of suffering, it may be, such people find themselves needy of God.

00:13:13--> 00:14:06

Right? When we are in hardship, when we are suffering, we find ourselves needy before Allah returned to Allah. And the people who are having a good time in their lives. Do they find themselves needing before Allah? No, they don't. In fact, they fear change such people, people who are living a life of luxury, they fear change. So we see that generally, it was the rich who opposed the prophets of Allah. It was the people of power, the people of material wealth, who opposed the messengers of Allah, into the tuber, I have. 34 Allah says one out of a sudden Laffy Correa Tim undeleting. Illa Kala muttrah fu ha in Burma or Silverton Vika Pharaoh, we did not send into a city any Warner except

00:14:06--> 00:14:37

its effluent one said that indeed we disbelieve in what you have been sent with, who disbelieved who opposed the effluent once, instead of dwapara. I have 4546 the people of Hellfire are described that in whom can publish Delica with graphene, what can we use it Runa and hensel are we that indeed they were before that indulging in affluence? They were living a life of luxury.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

And they used to persist in the great sin. What is that great sin check that even though they knew it was wrong, they still persisted in that Why? Because they did not want to lose their money, their luxury, their affluence, and we see that many years later, when it was

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

When he was asked by Iran, Iraq and inshallah we will learn about this also that when Abu Sufyan he was in Rome, so he was called by miracle and miracle. He asked Abu Sufyan about the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And one of the questions he asked him was, do the nobles of the people or the weak and poor among them, follow Him who follows him. And Abu Sufyan said, it's the weak, it's generally the poor, it's generally the slaves. They're the ones who follow Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And to that Heracles said,

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

that they are the followers of the messengers,

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

who generally follows the messengers, it is the week

00:15:44--> 00:16:28

people of new people have moved in Sharla. As you will learn these stories in the Quran, you will see that it was the Mullah. It was the nutrafin who opposed the prophets of Allah. Anyway, our beloved must route history said that the first to publicize their Islam were seven. The first people who publicize their Islam who openly declared their Islam were seven. Who were they, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakr, I'm mouth and his mother sumiya. So hey, Bill, Al, and milk dad. So these were the first ones to openly declare their Islam. He said as for the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah protected him through his uncle Abu Talib.

00:16:29--> 00:17:15

Because the leaders of the Qureshi when they could not hurt the profits of a lot of them, because of a polyp offered him full protection. Right. And he was also supporting him. And as for abubaker, Allah protected him through his people, because Abu Bakar was also from the crash. Right? Not just from the crash, but he was also a wealthy man, a noble man. So Allah protected him through his tribe, as for the rest of them, who are marred his mother's omega, so hey, beloved milk, dad, the mush deikun sees them, and change them up and left them under the sun. There was none of meaning they tortured them. There was none among them, except that he said to them what they wanted him to

00:17:15--> 00:17:41

say, except for Bella, meaning they were persecuted to such an extent that the machico they would say to those Muslims say that lat is your God, say that you believe in erza. And because of the extreme pain, or the extreme torture, that they could not handle any more, each and every one of those Muslims, he No, he said something that the Michigan wanted him to say. Why just to

00:17:42--> 00:18:06

just to save themselves, except for who, below the lower end. he considered himself his soul, very insignificant for Allah. Meaning he didn't give any importance to himself to his body, to his comfort, nothing. He didn't give any importance to himself. All he wanted was the pleasure of a loss.

00:18:07--> 00:18:32

So he did not say even a word that would please the machine. He didn't listen to them at all. So what happened? They gave him to some youths, young people who dragged him in the streets of Makkah. Imagine tied up in chains and being dragged through the streets of Makkah. And he would only say, I had had one, one.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

Why would he say I had had?

00:18:36--> 00:18:51

Why do you think so? Okay, but but why would he say 111 Allah to declare that he did not budge from his faith at all. And also because this would anger the machine even more.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

This would frustrate them even more.

00:18:55--> 00:19:21

They wanted him to say, let Rosa or the name of one of their idols, but the only thing he would say was a HUD HUD and we see from this Hardee's that the week they did not have any social protection, all right. So their honor, their blood was free to attack in salt rouge eight and 10 Allah, Allah says woman Naka momento Illa and umino, Bella Hill, Aziz and Hamid

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

they resented them, only because they believed in Allah.

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

What was the reason behind all this torture and persecution? What was it? And you know, Bella xyzal Hamid and then an EIN number 10. Allah says in a Latina Fattah Mina, Mina sama, Mia Tobu, fellow Martha Johanna mala Hamada Buhari, those people who torture the believing men and the believing women. So we see that it was not just the men who were tortured, it was also the women who were tortured and they and then they do not repent for them as a punishment of hell and for them as a punishment of burning because like for

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

Like,

00:20:01--> 00:20:16

we see that at one occasion it was Rudra dillo, on whom he went out in public and he recited sort of ramen. And he was beaten so much that he could not even complete the recitation of Soto ramen. He was beaten up so much.

00:20:17--> 00:20:35

And we see that now. The wish deikun they openly tortured, attacked the Muslims, if the profits of a lot of them is attacked near the Kaaba, what do you think about the rest of the Muslims? And the main man behind this torture program, you can say was who? Abuja.

00:20:36--> 00:21:17

The main, the main person behind this torture program was Abu jihad. If the Convert was a noble man, what would Buddha do? He would begin with verbal abuse, sometimes even physically harassed, like they harass Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, at one occasion, even a bucket of the lower end who was beaten up. Even Abu Bakar was beaten up. Because we see that once the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Robin Abbey Marie Lee came from behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and put his shawl around the neck of the prophets of Allah, and he began choking him. Now again, the Muslims who are watching they couldn't do anything. So I will Baca found out and he came in order to save the profits on a

00:21:17--> 00:21:59

lot of cinnamon, he said a duck to Luna Rajan and your cooler be Allah. Do you killer man just because he says, My Lord is Allah? Why are you doing this? So they love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they began hitting Abubakar below, and they beat him so much that he fainted, he collapsed. He collapsed. So anyway, well, john, because he was also a noble man, he was a man of power. So he would start this kind of opposition and the rest would join him. And if the Convert if the person who converted to Islam was not a noble man who was a slave or from a lesser class, what would a Buddha who he would instigate other people against him, which other people, the owners, or

00:21:59--> 00:22:47

the masters of that slave, and sometimes even the youths or you can say, like people who, like the riffraff sort of or people who have the gang mentality, or people who don't follow any line order, he would instigate such people against that Muslim convert. And this is a reason why a Buddha was described as fit our own of this oma fit our own of the soul. And we see that the torture, it was so severe that several Muslims, they said anything in order to be relieved, if they were asked Is that your God? They would say, yes. If they were asked believe in Rosa, they would say, okay, anything. And this just shows to us how severe that torture was. It wasn't that the Muslims in that

00:22:47--> 00:23:09

persecution, they left Islam, No, they didn't leave Islam, they were still firm upon their faith in their hearts. But just verbally, they would have to say something as much as they disliked it, just to save their lives. Now, everyone who was tortured, they said something in order to escape the torture except for who, below the lower the he was very strong inside, very strong.

00:23:10--> 00:23:34

And you can see his strength when we, when we learn about the way in which he was tortured. You know, slaves were more expensive than camels. Right? Because it's a human human being that was being purchased. And the more skill the slave had, the more expensive he was. So slaves were precious property.

00:23:35--> 00:23:42

All right, and torturing your slave, killing your slave was destroying your own property.

00:23:43--> 00:23:58

Because if you torture him, and if he is sick, or his arm doesn't work anymore, then He's useless. He's a burden. He can't work for you again, he can't bring any money to you can't serve you can't work. Nothing. If you kill him, you're destroying your own property.

00:23:59--> 00:24:19

Now, imagine if the owners were torturing their own slaves, to the point that some even killed their own slaves because of their Islam. What does that show that the machico were willing to give up anything in opposition to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So blind was their hatred.

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

So blind was their hatred that they were willing to give up anything? They were willing to destroy their own property? Why in opposition to Islam?

00:24:29--> 00:24:37

And we see that Omar bin Khalid, he was the master of a He is the one who owned the land although I know he personally he himself tortured, but Allah

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

hasn't been Sabbath. He said that hasn't been Sabbath was from Medina. He said that I went for Hajj. This is in his time of Jamelia, but this was when the when Bella was being tortured so so the Dow had been public. So has Simon sabet said that I went for hedge and I saw Bilaal being tortured, and I wondered how he was still alive. How he

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

We're still alive. Even as he said that I passed by banana when he was being tortured. The rocks that were on his chest, were so hot that if I had put raw meat on it on those rocks, that meat would have been cooked. And Bilaal. All he would say was a cool ability. Well, Rosa, we know Bella, had a had the ladder blower and who defeated the machico. He defeated them with his determination with his strength. He never gave them even one word by which they would be happy, by which they would feel satisfied. He truly frustrated them. They did whatever they could

00:25:42--> 00:25:55

emotionally mentally tortured him, and they exceeded all bounds of physical torture, all bounce, but they failed. They couldn't. They couldn't stop him. They couldn't change his faith.

00:25:57--> 00:26:23

They couldn't make him weak. They couldn't. And we see in the Quran that Miyama Zoo and you disobey whoever does evil then he is recompensed for it? He sees that evil. Right? And the one who does good he he's he gets good as well. How does that all your Sony in Alexa? So you get what you give what you do? That's exactly what you get.

00:26:24--> 00:26:37

So we see that Villanova on his sacrifice was so great. He would continue to say I had a had and what happened? He was the one who was chosen to say a shadow Allah Allah Illallah

00:26:38--> 00:26:42

Muhammad Rasul Allah, hi Allah Salah Highland fella.

00:26:44--> 00:26:57

He kept on declaring the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, even when he was tortured, and what happened? He was the one who was appointed by de su de la sala de Sala to give the other he was the official

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

the official one.

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

So what you do, that is what you get.

00:27:04--> 00:27:35

He held on to the truth and Allah subhanaw taala honored him and he like in the words of Hadith, what do we learn? He considered his knifes to be very insignificant before Allah subhanaw taala he did not give any importance to himself. Instead of korova tuinen wamena nasci manjushree nafsa who at her amaravati la among people is He who gives himself he sells himself he doesn't care about himself. Why? In order to seek the approval of Allah soprano.

00:27:36--> 00:27:44

And what is the great status of Bilaal. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was made to hear the footsteps of banana before him in front of him engine.

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

This is a great honor of Billa

00:27:48--> 00:27:55

we see that hubbub all day long and even he was severely tortured. According to some reports, he was a sixth person to declare the Shahada.

00:27:57--> 00:28:02

And he was a sword maker, someone who used to make swords, he was a blacksmith.

00:28:03--> 00:28:31

And he was not a free man. He was not a person who had any honor any social protection in Mecca. So what happened he was also persecuted the way Bilal was persecuted. He was dragged in the sand, through the streets, over the rocks such that the flesh on his back was ripped off to the extent that his ribs were showing

00:28:33--> 00:28:40

his ribs were showing, and he was told over and over again, reject what Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has brought, and we will stop this torture.

00:28:41--> 00:28:57

You know, at one occasion, many years later, or whatever, low or no, he asked, How bad show me what the machine can do to you. And how bad although I knew he lifted up his shirt, and revealed his back to a moral dilemma, I know. And I'm not alone, who was just quiet.

00:28:58--> 00:29:16

And he made her bed, let alone and who sit next to him and he honored him. It's as if in his respect for a little while. When he saw the torture that kebab went through in the last panel. This was so bad the torture that he faced that Omar who was the owner of Babylon,

00:29:17--> 00:29:22

Kabbalah and when he would be making swords, he would be heating, iron,

00:29:23--> 00:29:32

burning iron. So when he would do that, Omar would take that rod of iron, and she would put it on his head and on his back.

00:29:34--> 00:29:41

And she would do this over and over again. And how bad he couldn't do anything. Imagine a woman is torturing him, and he couldn't do anything.

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

Why? Because if he even lifted a finger, he would be assassinated, he would be killed. He would be finished. So at one occasion, the profits are a lot of sudden went by when hubbub was being tortured. And when he heard about when he saw what was being done, he prayed that Oh Allah help him Oh,

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Allah help hubbub. He could only make. So what happened that

00:30:07--> 00:30:29

the woman who was torturing her above or below and who, she became sick. One day, she woke up. She was sick. And she had such severe headaches, that there was no cure for it. She was a wealthy woman. She tried everything. And she was told that the only way your headache will go is if you take heated iron

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

and you put it on your head.

00:30:33--> 00:30:39

And what she did to hubbub was done to her, and it is said that she screamed and wailed like an animal.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

What she did was done to her.

00:30:44--> 00:31:05

They said that, I came to hubub, who had been branded with seven brands. So there were seven distinct marks, in some reports on his back in some reports on his stomach, seven burn marks on his body. And he said, had Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not forbidden us to invoke a love for death, I would have invoked a love for it.

00:31:08--> 00:31:29

If we were allowed to ask for death, I would certainly have asked Allah to take me in depth. I didn't want to live anymore. habagat although I knew he said that, at one occasion, we complained to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam of the persecution that was inflicted on them. And he said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting in the shade of the Kaaba.

00:31:30--> 00:31:39

He was sitting in the shade of the Kaaba, and we said to him, would you seek help for us? Can you please pray to Allah for us?

00:31:41--> 00:32:20

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, among the nations before you, of believing men would be put in a ditch that was dug for him and a saw would be put over his head, and he would be cut into two pieces, yet that torture would not make him give up his religion. His body would be combed with iron combs that would remove his flesh from the bones and nerves, yet that would not make him abandon his religion, by Allah, this religion will prevail. This religion will prevail till a traveller from Sonora to help them out will fear none but Allah, meaning all people in this entire area will believe in Allah.

00:32:21--> 00:32:27

But you people are hasty. You are being hasty. Be patient.

00:32:28--> 00:32:34

So imagine the persecution that the Muslims were going through the torture that they were going through.

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

And what were they told the patient

00:32:40--> 00:33:03

in the Quran in surah, Baqarah Ayah 214 we learn and passively and that whole agenda, what am I committed to larina Holloman? publikum, Masato butser over the raw oversold Zulu. They were shaken up, hat die akula Rasulullah alladhina amanu Muhammad Allah sola until they said, When will the help of Allah come Allah in Islam by

00:33:04--> 00:33:49

the help of Allah is near. Because when the night gets darker, what comes next? What comes next? Don't fret, so strong was their faith, the Kabbalah and who when he was near his death, and he lived a long life. He lived way past the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even after the prophets of Allah Sunday Habad lived on for a long time after that. So when he was close to his death, he said, we migrated with Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeking a less pleasure. So our awards became do ensure with Allah, some of us passed away without eating anything of their rewards in this world, like for example, must have been remade. One of these was must have been remade, who was martyred on

00:33:49--> 00:34:29

the day of the Battle of our head, we did not find anything to shroud his body with except o'clock, when we covered his head with it, his feet remain uncovered. And when we covered his feet with it, his head remained uncovered. So Allah messenger ordered us to cover his head with it and put some head over his feet. And there are some amongst us whose fruits have ripened and they are collecting them. What is he saying? that we all suffered a lot in the way of Allah must have been even roommate. He never got to see the fruit of his effort. He died before that. And some of us lived on until we are seeing the fruits. And he's talking about himself.

00:34:30--> 00:34:56

He's talking about himself that I'm afraid that perhaps Allah has given me in dystonia, and there's nothing waiting for me in the hospital. So strong was this man's faith that he was not willing to give it up. And later on, when he sees good times, he's afraid that he's going to lose out on his reward. Because he wanted reward from who? Allah subhanaw taala in there.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

Then we see that another group of people who were

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

persecuted severely were the family of the acid, the acid and sumaiya

00:35:07--> 00:35:14

became the first martyrs. The acid in Somalia, they were married their son or mother. Amar been Yes, it'll be long and who

00:35:16--> 00:35:21

he also accepted Islam. He was very young, perhaps 15 or 16. And they were also

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

of the slave class.

00:35:25--> 00:35:38

And they were persecuted. They were tortured. And they were even killed. We see that yes, it was killed. sumiya was killed in in such a brutal way that it's difficult to even speak about it.

00:35:40--> 00:35:41

They were both killed.

00:35:42--> 00:36:26

And when they were being tortured, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he passed by, and he said sobre la Asad. Be patient or family of acid for enamel either Komal. Jenna, your promise is only 10. Hold on, hold on strong. And they did until they were killed. They were killed. And yes, it was killed. Somalia was killed their little son Mohammed he was killed. And the only one who was spared was a month below on who was a young boy. And how was he spared? He said something that the machine wanted him to say. So when he said that, they let him go. And he came to the profits that allowed him straightaway and he said that I said words of gopher. And the last panel data revealed in sort of

00:36:26--> 00:36:59

knuckle io 161 kafa Billahi min bar the Imani in lemon oak, we have a call boo mama ennoble email. If a person is forced to say words of gopher, but in his heart, he's content with his email. Then such such people are forgiven. And we see that the prophets have a lot of time would often call our mom IGNOU sumaiya. In many a Hadith, or model the law on who? How is he addressed IGNOU sumaiya the son of Somalia, why in honor of his mother,

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

because his mother was killed.

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

She was tortured, and she was killed brutally Why? Because of her Islam.

00:37:09--> 00:37:28

Now we see from these incidents, and there are many, many more incidents that tell us about the persecution that the Muslims faced in Makkah that there were times in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his life when he saw Muslims being tortured when he saw Muslims being persecuted, but he couldn't do anything.

00:37:29--> 00:37:35

He couldn't do anything himself. Even the rest of the Muslims, they couldn't do anything in defense of

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

others. They couldn't.

00:37:39--> 00:37:44

All they could do was just ask Allah subhanaw taala to make her way out.

00:37:45--> 00:38:02

And that's what they did. And Allah protected His servants, Allah certainly made a way out for them. But he also allowed them to be tried. He also let them be persecuted.

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

And you wonder why?

00:38:06--> 00:38:17

Why is it that the last panel Darla, let this happen? What's the hate mob behind that? You see it as part of our Eman that both hide and shelf or From who?

00:38:18--> 00:38:32

alasa panel data. Right? If something good happens, that is from Allah. And if something bad happens in our lives, that is also happening by Allah will his because if he does not allow nothing like that can happen.

00:38:33--> 00:38:40

So why is it that Allah subhanaw taala let the Muslim suffer so much in Makkah, and not just the Muslims even let's do the loss of love earlier. So

00:38:42--> 00:38:46

why? Why did they have to go through this difficulty?

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

Think about it.

00:38:50--> 00:38:53

What was the wisdom? What's the benefit?

00:38:55--> 00:39:08

That is true, that when something comes easy, it goes easy. But you when you have suffered in order to get something then you hold on to it, you don't let it go. You value it because you have suffered for it.

00:39:10--> 00:39:26

What other benefit is there? Yes. That fitna is purification. It is for the purpose of strengthening the believers purifying their faith. Because you see, when a person has it easy,

00:39:27--> 00:39:33

right? When there is no difficulty or when when you're not suffering? Why would you bother to turn to Allah soprano.

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

But when you're going through difficulty you realize your family cannot help. Your money cannot help your status even doesn't matter. your education, your qualifications, nothing matter. Nothing can come to help you who is watching you and who is listening to you and who knows what you're going through. And who can change your situation. What do you realize? Only Allah subhanaw taala

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

Do that. Right? So your faith in Allah, it only grows your sincerity for a loss of panel data that grows.

00:40:09--> 00:40:15

There is a hadith and was further hammered in which we learn either I have Bella who Coleman, it with Allah.

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

When Allah loves people,

00:40:21--> 00:40:22

he tests them,

00:40:23--> 00:40:24

even allow him.

00:40:25--> 00:40:29

So if a person is being tested for his faith, what does that mean?

00:40:31--> 00:40:38

Allah loves him, because we see that all the prophets went through this and a lot of them

00:40:39--> 00:40:59

from on sabara follow husaberg so whoever is patient, then for him is patience. Meaning he will it was the one who tries to be patient, then he will be able to observe patients woman jazzy fella who will jezza and whoever is impatient, and for him is impatient, meaning whoever gives up then you'll never survive, you'll never make it through.

00:41:01--> 00:41:10

In another Hadees, which is an even ban. We learned that in ulladulla lotta kulula, who were in the La hilman Zilla.

00:41:12--> 00:41:22

A man has a position near a la familia blue Habyarimana in which he cannot reach which he cannot attain through his actions.

00:41:24--> 00:41:40

Allah soprano Dada has a certain position, a certain status that he has reserved for his slave and a loved ones that his slave should make it to that station, make it to that level.

00:41:41--> 00:42:08

But that slave he cannot reach that level, just through his actions merely through his armor. Perhaps he doesn't have the knowledge perhaps he doesn't have the ability perhaps he doesn't get the opportunity. But Allah subhanaw taala wants him to reach that level. So what happens from a azealia Batali he Bhima Jaco who had Diablo Haha, yeah. So Allah continues to test him through what he dislikes until he reaches that level.

00:42:10--> 00:42:20

So if Allah dusts a servant makes him go through difficulty, hardship, pain, suffering, what does it mean?

00:42:21--> 00:42:27

Allah wants bad for that servant. No one's good for that service. that perhaps

00:42:29--> 00:42:37

we cannot pray that much. And we cannot recycle on that much and we cannot fast that much. But perhaps because of the pain that we're suffering in our body,

00:42:38--> 00:43:13

or the hardship that we're going through in our lives through our family members are through those who are closest to us because of that hardship and suffer over that hardship. Unless panels Allah will give us report that we cannot attain just to our actions. In another Hadees, which is alternative inhibin the prophets a lot of them said in albula, a surah lm in your head Bonnie Mina Salli, Ala Moana, who, indeed, trials come faster upon whoever loves me, then the flood comes to its destination.

00:43:14--> 00:43:18

Have you ever seen water just flowing, flowing, flowing?

00:43:19--> 00:43:30

It goes so fast, just continues to flow. Have you ever seen images of tsunami or something like that just waves are just rolling in rolling in, and then eventually what happens? They stop.

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

But notice the speed at which water comes

00:43:36--> 00:43:49

as if it's running to a destination. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, trials and difficulties. They come faster upon those who love me. Then flood comes to its destination.

00:43:50--> 00:43:59

So those who love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam those who are loved by Allah, then they are definitely tested.

00:44:01--> 00:44:05

They will definitely find difficulties in their lives.

00:44:06--> 00:44:18

difficulties are a means of purification their means of strengthening us great Rajat, how are they attained through great suffering through great trials? Jenna, what is it surrounded by

00:44:19--> 00:44:48

difficulties? And Johanna what is that surrounded by? desires? This life is for test not for comfort. That has he been so a neutral coo coo Amana afternoon? Do they think they will be left and they will not be tested? If Allah tested His Messenger sallallahu wasallam if a law tested aboubaker and VLAN and hubub any acid and an MA and sumaiya.

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

Then what about those who claim to follow their footsteps.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

in attendance today, we learned the profits on a lot of them said indeed I have feared for the same

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

Have a law such that no one has feared,

00:45:05--> 00:45:09

I have feared for the sake of Allah such that no one has feared.

00:45:10--> 00:45:21

You know, for instance we we are praying slaughter somewhere in the open and our heart is just pounding. Or we go somewhere with our hijab on and we feel like everybody's staring at us and we feel afraid.

00:45:22--> 00:45:35

We feel afraid, terrified. The prophets on a lot of them said I have feared for the sake of Allah such that no one has feared and I have been harmed for the sake of Allah, such that no one has been harmed.

00:45:37--> 00:46:03

So if we find ourselves suffering, or if we find ourselves afraid, in the way the last panel tada remember that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam suffered even more, he felt even more afraid. But Allah's promise is that after difficulty will be easy, in fact, when the difficulty is in the morale or serious Ronna borrowers with difficulty is ease.

00:46:04--> 00:46:41

But we also see that after a period of hardship, Allah subhanaw taala makes a way out. So what happened? The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he advised the Muslims who were being persecuted to leave monka and go were to have a Sha Abyssinia. So we see that in the fifth year of prophethood, which is just a year and a half after the prophet SAW a lot of them went public with the Dawa, just a year and a half. Imagine all these stories that I've mentioned to you. There's many more. This happened in a period of just one and a half years. Imagine how difficult those years

00:46:42--> 00:46:50

would have been. So the prophets of Allah, Allah, He suggested the Muslims to immigrate to Habesha Abyssinia, whereas Where's Habesha?

00:46:52--> 00:46:53

In Africa?

00:46:54--> 00:46:57

I remember that leaving Makkah meant what?

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

leaving your home? But not just that,

00:47:02--> 00:47:10

leaving your protection? Leaving, Your Honor, because if a person had any protection if he had any honor,

00:47:12--> 00:47:13

why would that be?

00:47:14--> 00:47:19

Why? Because of his tribe, because of his clan,

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

because of the of the fact that he was in Makkah,

00:47:23--> 00:47:31

he was living in, in the sacred city. So leaving Makkah meant what leaving everything.

00:47:32--> 00:47:38

And for us, traveling might be very easy. You just pack up your bag, keep some money in your bag, and that's it. You go.

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

If you need food, if you need anything, pull that wallet out and purchase it.

00:47:44--> 00:48:19

But traveling at that time was even more difficult. You had to take everything along with you. It was a very difficult, hard, painful journey. So the Muslims were advised leave maka leave your protection, leave your honor. And when you go to a new city to a new place, you are purely at the mercy of those around you. Because if they want, they can loot you. If they want, they can take your money away. They can torture you, they can abuse you, they can harass you They can do whatever you want, who will come to defend you who come to aid you nobody. You don't have any family there. You don't have any tribe over there. You don't have anything over there.

00:48:20--> 00:48:58

And leaving maca going somewhere else also meant immense financial loss, because you couldn't take all your money with you. Which is why when the Muslims did hijra, what did they do? They buried their money, they buried their wealth. They hid it in different places. So this was no easy decision. But we see that Islam their Eman was more valuable to them than their money than their protection. They were willing to take any risk for the sake of a loss for the sake of their faith. So what happened 15 people did Hitler 11 men and four women amongst them was autores Mandel de la Mourinho.

00:49:00--> 00:49:13

Now in Charlotte the details off Hitler to Abyssinia we will do in our next lesson and for that please make sure you do your readings from page number 75 to 100 inshallah, all right.

00:49:14--> 00:49:34

And also please look at the map inshallah I will send you an email in which you can see the map where at the senior is located so that you have an idea of how far it is from Makkah and what this edraw truly meant. As a chronicle long will we have the ignition to La ilaha illa Anta Mr. Rocha wanted to relate Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
