First and Second migration to Abyssinia
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
How are y'all doing?
Ready for storytime?
My mother who went to Saudi Arabia Saudi, he's getting another word for the villa him in a straight line is rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim furbish Riley sorry, were Siddeley Emily Emory.
So in our previous lesson, we learned about the hedgerow to avicennia, that when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went public with the Dharma, which was after three years of prophethood, he received a lot of opposition from the enemy from the machine. But in particular, it was the weak amongst the Muslims who were oppressed. And they were physically abused, they were tortured. But even the elite amongst the Muslims meaning people who were from pradesh or from noble families, even they were not spared. So for example, we learned about wasabi been roommate. Likewise, we learn about sardana visa costs. I mean, these companions, they were well off, they were from noble tribes,
noble families, and who is it that oppose them first and foremost, it was their own family members. So for example, segment of your Cosmos or women who may, who oppose both of these men, it was their mother's, they both blackmail them, that if you don't leave Islam, I am not going to eat and drink, I'm going to die. And so I'm going to be a cost Sad mother. Even if you were to die like this 70 times I am not going to leave my Islam. So when she saw that he was firm on his religion, she gave up basically, and she had something to eat and saved her life. But anyway, the point is that all the Muslims were suffering in one way or another. So what happened in the fifth year after the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam received Prophethood? What happened? A group of Muslims migrated to have a shot. The question is, why did they migrate to habashi Abyssinia, there were different reasons behind that the first reason was preservation of EMA, to protect their faith,
to protect their lives, and to remain upon their religion. Because it wasn't possible for many of the Muslims, to live in peace, to live in security with Islam. They were given two options if you want to live peacefully. If you want to live in safety, then you leave Islam. And if you want Islam, then be ready to be persecuted. Because even the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not spared, as we saw. Now, we learned in several of Hadees, that when the Muslims were not able to defend themselves, and we learned about the story of Habad, for example, below the lower and who, so the prophets on a lot is Adam, he advised the Muslims, the father of fulfilled Earth, disperse through the earth,
meaning go somewhere else don't remain in Makkah, go somewhere else to save your life. So they set for a nanohub Yasuda law, where can we go on messenger below where should we go? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he pointed in the direction of habashi. And he said Hakuna, go over there, meaning go to have a shot. So I'm Santa Monica de la Anna. She was one of those people who migrated to Havasu and she said that we went to her Basha, and we began to live in a good land, and we were safe with regards to our worship and we did not fear any persecution. So why did they do hydro? For the sake of their Deen for the sake for the preservation of their Eman in order to save their lives? And
insalata natural if 41 we learn when Medina herder orfila he mimbar de mellouli mu lenoble we unknown for dunya Hashanah that those people who immigrate who do hijra, why for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala after they have been oppressed after they have been persecuted. So when they do hijra, we will surely settle them in this world in a good place. And that is exactly what happened with the Muslims. They left Makkah because of persecution. They ended up in habashi and hamartia became a good place for them. Indonesia.
Another reason for hijra, another reason why they immigrated to the senior was to do Dawa outside of Makkah. Because remember that the prophets Allah said he was sent a messenger to just the people of Makkah, no, but to all of mankind.
So his message had to spread out.
Right now for several years, the profits of a lot of them had been doing Dawa in Makkah and remember that Morocco was the heart of Arabia. So people from all over Arabia came to Makkah. But remember that? Abyssinia, it's not in hijas. It is in Africa, as you will see in the map inshallah, that the Red Sea. All right, which is to the left of which is to the left, if you can see over here, the Red Sea, which is to the left of hedges, all right. Abyssinia is on the other side. All right. How about shadows on the other side? I'm sorry, this image for some reason is not coming clear. But anyway, Saudi Arabia, hey, guess what's on the left side? There's water. What is that water? Red Sea? All
right. What's on the other side of the sea? Africa. All right. Which countries are there? Somalia is there. All right? Egypt is in the north. All right. And also Abyssinia is there. So the Muslims went to I was sent here. And this way, they also took the message of Islam outside of Makkah, outside of hijas, to Africa in Abyssinia. And we see that the Muslims when they immigrated to avicennia, they understood that they were going not just to save their lives, but also to practice Islam and to take the message forward. And this is the reason why, when the prophets and a lot of them have migrated to Medina, we see that the Muslims did not leave at the center right away, you know how long they
remained in episode you 14 years. And they only left as a senior when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called them to Medina. And you know when he called them after the Treaty of her davia after the conquest of hiber. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he had a treaty of peace with the machico and by that point, the battles of brotherhood have already been fought, all right. And with the Jews, also the Jews exiled from Medina, a group of them and then they were also conquered in labor. So the profits of a lot of them by that time had enough security and also power and authority and then he called them with since from avicennia. So anyway, when the Muslims went to ever senior, they did are
over there. And this is what they understood when they were going to avicennia they, they made Abyssinia their home. And and we see in a hadith which is in Bahati that Abu Musa he said that we heard that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam migrated to Medina. So you're talking about the time when the prophets Allah Lhasa migrated to Medina many years later. And he said that we were in Yemen, where's Yemen, in the south of hedges? And they said, We made our way to Medina in order to join the Prophet sallallahu sallam. All right, and how many people were there about 5052 53 so around 5050 people left Yemen in order to go to Medina to join the prophets, Allah, Allah, but they wanted to
avoid Mikasa they want to see Alright, so they cross the Red Sea. And they met the Muslims and as a senior, all right, and their plan was to go back, you know, from the north of Mecca to Medina. Alright, so that they would completely avoid the machico Anyway, when they when they reached Abyssinia, they met Jaffa radi Allahu anhu in Abyssinia and they told him where they were going. They were going to Medina, Jafar of the Alomar who he said to them in the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam barsana how hoonah What am I gonna build a karma for chemo mana. He said the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam sent us here and ordered us to stay here. So you to stay here
Stay here with us. And when the time is right, the prophets Allison will call us.
Now, remember that hegira as we discussed earlier was no easy step. It wasn't something easy to do. Which is why we see the only 15 according to some other reports, 17 people migrated to avicennia only 15 or 17. Whereas how many people were being persecuted in Macau? How many Muslims? Almost all of them, but only 15 to 17 of them? Were able to go to Abyssinia Why? Why? so few people? Firstly, because everybody could not go you know, for instance sobre la or new bilello de La Verne who did they have the freedom to go? No. All right. Likewise, many of them if they had the freedom, they did not have the means they did not have the financial means. Because it was it was like giving up
everything that you have. There wasn't any cash that you can just put in your bag and take with you. Your property is your home you can't carry your home. It's your it's your animals, you can't hurt the entire flock. Right. So it was leaving everything you have in Makkah and going somewhere else.
And one more reason that prevented many people from doing digital was
Giving up their protection in Makkah. Because if you left Makkah, you left your tribe, what did that mean? Your renouncing your citizenship of Makkah.
Giving that up meant that if you go anywhere else, you're a refugee. All right. You're at the mercy of the people that you're going to be amongst. If they treat you well, they treat you well. And if they oppress you, you have no defense. You have no strength. And if you wish to come back to America, Well, again, you have no protection because you renounce your citizenship.
So you understand, even though it was so difficult to live in Makkah, yet only 17 people left for. For avicennia we learned that when the Muslims first left privacyidea amongst them was responsible, the lower and who Abu Salah on Salama, earth, mammoth rune of the Romanian zubaid been a worm, many of the great companions and Abu Bakar below on who was also in them.
He also set out to do his role with them. But you know what happened? as they were outside Makkah making their way to Jeddah, alright, and Jeddah they would catch a boat and cross the sea and end up in Africa. What happened was that as I left Makkah, some people were coming into Makkah from outside.
And we learned about this incident in Buhari, all right, that is delina. He was one of the men and he was a very noble man from his of his tribe. He was not a mechanic, he was from somewhere else. But when he saw that these people are leaving, most of them were from the crash. And Abubakar is amongst them, he asked them what happened, where are you going? So they told him. And when he saw that abubaker was in them, he said, he said, a man like you cannot leave. This is not right. that a person like you, who helps the needy, a person like you, who is so noble, it is not right that you are being made to leave Makkah to save your life. So what happened? Even the governor, he said, You
come with me back to Makkah, I'll ensure that you are protected. I will ensure that you are under my protection. So imagine avacado on who he went with it. No delena back to Makkah.
So you see how going to ever senior was not easy.
This this incident makes it clear going to have the city It was not easy because when Obama was given an option to stay in Makkah in production, he said, Okay, I'll take it. I'd rather stay here, then go to avicennia. And besides one of the most difficult things was being away from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That was not easy.
So anyway, Abu Bakar although I knew he returned to Makkah, the courage, they agreed that they would let him stay in peace and under the protection of Abner Davina provided that Abu Bakar alone who would not pray in the harem
book alone who agreed, and he started praying at his house at his home, he was the first one to make a Masjid. Alright, he extended a portion of his house, and he would pray Salah over there. And he would recite the Quran over there and work alone and who is described as a man who was bucha, who would cry very easily, very frequently. And his recitation was also very beautiful, you know, with with all that feeling, and it was so attractive that the women, the children, the slaves, all the passers by, they would just stop in all and just stare and listen to avacado arnoux performing the prayer and reciting the Quran. So the Quran, they got really upset. They sent word to Edna dotnet
that look, Abubakar is doing this, and we don't want it. So either you take back your protection from him. Or you tell him that he's not allowed to pray anymore at all.
So we'll back it up below or what do you think he did?
He said, Take your production back. I don't need your protection anymore. And don't stop me from praying.
And this is when the machine of Makkah they assaulted Abu Bakar at the lower end, who regularly as well remember, there was a time when a little boy who was beaten up so much when he was trying to save the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he became immobile for approximately a week.
He had been hurt so much, he had been abused so much that he was just in his house, unable to get out, unable to go out of his house for a week. So anyway, avacado I knew he remained in Makkah. Now there's one question which is that out of all places? Why is it that Habesha was chosen for Hydra? Why did the prophets Allah Islam tell the Muslims to go to have a shot? Why not Yemen? All right, why not a sham? Why not somewhere else? Why Habesha? There were different reasons behind that. One of the main reasons was that the king over there, no joshy right. His title wasn't a joshy negus negus. He was known he was well
He was famous for his, for His justice.
He was known as a just ruler who did not persecute his people who did not oppress his subjects. He gave them their space their freedom. And this is a reason why the prophets on a lot isn't until the Muslims to go to Abba senior Salah model that I wanted this is hardyston acetyl Sahara. She said that when Makkah became constricted for us and the companions of the Messenger of Allah said a lot of them were hurt, they were tortured.
And they were afflicted with various trials and persecution because of their religion. And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was not able to defend them. But he himself was in the protection of obatala. Right or his tribe.
And he was not able to defend the Muslims. He He said to them, in the land of Habesha is a king who does not wrong anyone who is with him.
Who does not oppress anyone who is with him anyone means a person of any background, any religion, whether he's Christian, Jew, mushrik, anyone, he does not oppress anybody, he gives them their freedom. So go join him in his land, until Allah makes a way out for you and an escape from the ordeal that you are in.
So, you understand why I was India was chosen, what was the reason?
The Justice of
of Naja she of the King
Solomon said, we took the advice of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and we left in small groups and ended up in a good land with good neighbors. The joshy protected us in the matter of our religion and we feared no persecution from him.
Another reason why I was India was chosen was because he was not just fair, and just but he was also a righteous man. He was also a good man, a religious a spiritual man.
You know how these we learn or cannibal have a shotty Malecon silent inhibition is a king who is silent. He is described as a good righteous King.
You call Allahu Ana Joshi laolu had the elder who does not rank anyone who is in his land. Now the real name of Natasha was us Huma, Huma or us hammer her as a as either a photographer llama, all right, and his title was Naja she or negus.
Also, another reason why Habesha was chosen was because how Bashar was familiar then, how is it familiar? Remember that the coalition the people of Makkah, they traveled frequently for the purpose of trade? Where did they go for trade south as well as North Yemen. And they also went to a sham. But besides these two areas, they also went to at the senior, they also went to have a shot. Alright, so
have a shot was familiar land, it was known, it was the center of trade. And remember, that habitat was also not very far. It wasn't that far. All that people had to do was just go to Jeddah go to the seaport,
cross the sea, and then you're in have a shot. All right.
Also, remember that hover show was a safe place.
It was known for its security. And one more reason why I have a show was chosen is because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also liked how Russia in some narrations in a hadith that is reported by azuchi. We learned that however, show was of the most beloved places to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Why do you think the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like kalisha?
yes, exactly. Baraka whom a man who was she?
Remember, remember whom a man she was the slave of the prophets of a lot of things father, Abdullah. All right. And she is the one who took care of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. She was with Amina when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was born. And then later on when MNF passed away, Ayman was always you know, with the prophets of Allah, etc.
So Amun was almost like a mother to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. She was like family to him. And Amen. Where was she from? From heaven. So the prophets Allah Allah is Allah was familiar with how Varsha you know what the culture of Habesha the food of Harsha even the language of abyssinians the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knew it. You know, for instance, there's a hadith in which we learned that. Also Javier Khalid bin Khalid, she said that when I came from Harsha to Medina, she was a young girl and she said
That the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave me you know some clothes to wear. Right? And then when she put it on she was a little girl, she put it on and the prophets of Allah said him said, Sunnah, Sunnah meaning good. And these words are from the language of the people of habit.
And there are many other narrations also, in which we learned that the prophet SAW a lot of time was familiar with the language with the expressions with the culture of have a shot. So it was familiar land.
All right. And this is one of the reasons that have a shot was chosen. One more reason, have a shot. What was the religion of the people who live there? Christianity was a land of the Christians and the Christians or Christianity it's closer to Islam than any other religion closer in which way first of all, in a way that the profit that they you know, follow or believe in is who restarted insulin, and who was restarted so that the profit that was sent before Mohammed Salah lies I mean, between restarted cinnamon, Mohammed Salah Lotus and there's no other prophet. So in this way, closest, and in another way, that in terms of
beliefs, or Deen also, and this is why in the Quran, we learn that you will find the closest people in love to the Muslims, to be who alladhina pallu in annissa, there are those who say that we are Christians, you will find them closest in love to the Muslims, meaning they are most friendly, out of all people. They're the friendliest of the Muslims. So this is one of the reasons why avicennia was chosen. And remember that in Abyssinia, Christianity was practiced, but it is said that the form of Christianity that was practiced over there, or that was well known over there was different from the Christianity that was practiced in Rome. All right, because remember that these are the people
that believed in him, the disciples that or the Hawaii, you remember that there were persecuted, there were very few and they were persecuted, they spread through the land. And over time, what happened was that they were more ignorant of the religion than they were aware. And therefore there were many different versions of Christianity that existed, even their basic beliefs about resellers. And I'm we're not the same. There was even a question about who is Risa or the center? Was he a prophet? Was he not a prophet? Was he,
the Son of God? Was he God? Who was he? There was even a debate such as that. So in the three hundreds when when Constantine he embraced Christianity, it is said that he held an assembly, right, in which he had all the major priests, bishops, everybody gathered in one place, so that everyone would unanimously decide what they were going to believe in. And that was going to be the one version of their belief that was going to be spread everywhere in the entire Roman Empire. So what happened that over there the Nicene Creed, all right, that is what was decided, which is that three gods are one. All right, which is whichever version, right that you want to talk about. Some say
that it was Father, Son, marry, or Father, Son, Holy Ghost, all right. But anyway, all the different branches of Christianity that exists today, they stem from this Nicene Creed. Now, the one person who oppose this was who, a man by the name of areas, and it is said that he was firm about the fact that Jesus was not Son of God, he was rather a servant and prophet of Allah.
But what happened? It was decreed that he be he should be assassinated, he should be executed. So areas he escaped, he fled. He left in order to save his life. And where did he go? He didn't go somewhere in Rome. He left Rome, he left a sham. And he went south into Africa. And he ended up where? In Abyssinia? So this is why they say that the versions of Christianity that came into Arabia, all right, they were they were different, which is why we see that's a man of fantasy. It'll be lower on him. All right, the priests that he went to, what did he say? That I do not know of any person who is on my religion except for so and so. So go to him. If there were so many Christians
alive at that time, why didn't he simply send a man of the lower on who to Rome?
You understand because they knew that the version of Christianity that is practiced in Rome was not correct.
And then what happened Eventually, the last priests that's a man rather low on him
was with What did he say? I do not know of anyone who is upon the truth. So now go and wait for the last prophet. So you understand. So it is said that the version of Christianity that Natasha was on, or the people of Abyssinia were on, it was closer to the truth. So this is why out of all places, which place was selected for digital, every senior, so the Muslims, they went to every senior, and this was in the month of Raja in the fifth year of prophethood. All right. Now what happened? which month comes after Raja charbon, which month comes after sherborn Ramadan, alright. And a few months later in the month of Ramadan, in Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was near the Carver, and
there were many mystic or rather Polish nobleman over there also and the prophets are the loudest and recited sort of
when he recited sort of the legend, the last idea of suta najem. What does it say?
First Judah lillahi wa boo. So the recitation of certain najem the if the versus the message was so powerful and so captivating, that the Quraysh, as they heard the prophets on a lot of them say, first July he wore blue, prostrate to Allah and worship him. What happened? They just fell into frustration.
All right. Why? Because the recitation was so powerful that it was as if they could not hold themselves back. They just fell into frustration. It was like an automatic reaction. They could do nothing but sad to them. And then what happened? rumors spread that the Irish have accepted Islam. They have believed. And this rumor, it reached Abyssinia also, when it reached avicennia, the Muslims thought, Well, if the Quran have accepted Islam, if everybody's become Muslim in Makkah, why are we here? Let's go back home. So it had only been a few months that they had been in Abyssinia. But what happened when they heard this news? They didn't wait. They packed up and they went back to
Makkah. Now, as they reach close to Makkah, they find out that what they had heard was not true. So some Muslims, they said, You know what, we have to go back. It's not safe for us to go to Makkah. So they went back, but others said, you know, we're here. We might as well go into Makana. Let's see what has happened. Hopefully, things have changed. But now as they go back into Makkah, remember those who went back to Makkah with citizenship that did they have? What protection that they have no protection, right. They had basically kind of cut off ties with their relatives in the sense that fine, you don't want to protect me, don't protect me, I'm going I don't need your protection. You
understand? So they were basically unprotected in Makkah. Some of the Muslims, they went to, they went back to their tribesmen or they went to other tribesmen, alright or people who were somewhat related to them, and they offered them protection so they were in protection. So for example, it was Mandan was ruined. He was protected by bullied and bullied out of all people.
Abu Salah, Abu Salama, he was related to Abuja all right now Abuja he was so happy that was a Salah is back and he doesn't have anybody's protection. We're not going to protect him. He's on his own. What happened I will sell them I went to Abu Talib Abu Talib said fine, I'll protect you. You're you're under my protection.
So I will just come straight without fighting with him. What are you doing? He's one of my men, you can't protect him. What happens? Abu lahab stands up in defense of Abu Talib, and he said stop fighting with him.
Can you imagine? A Bula hub is standing up to defend who Abu Talib who is defending Abu Salah, the enemy of Islam is being used to protect the Muslims. Is there any lesson in this perhaps? What is the lesson? Yes, in terms of the law, the answer come
right. When you submit academical, you help the cause of Allah and Allah will help you. He will protect you. Allah will protect you through means that you cannot even expect you cannot even imagine, through ways that even you cannot come up with
any other lesson
that Allah is using an enemy of Islam to protect his religion.
That means that Allah subhanaw taala does not need us to protect his religion, to serve his religion
to preserve the truth, to pass it on. This is the cause of Allah and the cause of Allah will prevail.
Our fortune, if we get to have a share in this cause, if we have a share in this cause good for us. And if we don't have a share in this cause then you know what? It's going to prevail anyway. It doesn't depend on us. The work of Allah does not depend on us remember that the deen of Allah does not depend on us.
You know, for instance, when you are trying to research something even about Islam, something so basic, if you want to know the meaning of a of an Arabic word, one of the first one of the primary resources that you use is a dictionary. Right? Arabic to English dictionary.
Name one dictionary that you use hands where hands where an academic, but not a Muslim, academic, but not a Muslim. You go into Hadith sciences, the names of the morehart disown their biographies, you know who, who's written that so many orientalist scholars, now Muslim scholars, so many books on seed of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are written by who? Not necessarily Muslims, even non Muslim, even Arabic. Yes. And what this reminds me of is the incident where, remember one of the companions, he was assigned to a particular occasion to guard the public Treasury. And he was guarding it during the night, and what happened? She had been killed.
So in the form of a boy, that's how we got him. Right, that boy, he didn't know it was Shetland, he caught him. And he made an excuse. So basically let him go, the province that allows him as the next morning, what happened to your prisoner? He said, I felt bad for him and let him go. The next night. Same thing happened the next night, same thing happened. And then finally the third night that that boy came in the form of Shayla who that Chetan that came in the form of a boy. He said that I will tell you something, which if you say shaitaan will not bother you, and what is that? I could see.
What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say? He said, He's a liar, but he has spoken the truth. You see, one of the virtues of idle kursi we learn from who shall
we learn from who? shavon
so you know what? The Deen of Allah, it really does not need us. It really does not depend on us for anything.
It will survive, it will prevail, it will continue. If we have a share.
It's good for us. So let's be greedy for this share. So anyway,
the Muslims who were in who came back to Makkah, the persecution, it did not stop for them. But what happened? The Muslims were returned from from Abyssinia. How many were they? I mean, you're talking about less than 50. Now because some of them went back to weapons in here. Right. So anyway, the the few Muslims who returned to Makkah came inside Makkah, they told other Muslims about how Abyssinia was,
and how safe it was and how good it was.
All right. So what happened at Muslims, were ready to leave Makkah and go to avicennia.
You understand what happened over here?
Initially, what the prophet sallallahu Sallam told them go to have a shot, how many people were ready to go only 17.
A rumor spread misunderstanding happen, those Muslims returned. After a few weeks, when they come back to Makkah, they spread news about Abyssinia to the rest of the Muslims and they say you know what, it's worth going. It's worth going. So now at Muslims were ready to go. And they left for avicennia. Thus, the second immigration to habashi occurred. And 80 people went to men and women, families migrated to have a shot. Now, again, this is a lesson, right? that perhaps you dislike something but it's good for you. A lot will bring something good out of that. You know, because put yourself in the shoes of those Muslims who left Morocco went to have a shot and now they came back
to Morocco. Imagine the regret that they must have been feeling. We shouldn't have gone in the first place. Now we're in a worse position than we were before. But no. This happened with ullas even it happened with a loss permission. If Allah allowed it. We accept it. And we expect only good and good came out of it.
So now 80 people went to have a shot. I remember that 80 people leaving Makkah. I mean, it seems like a small number. But for MCI was a very big number.
It was a very major portion of the population, you could say with somewhere between 10 to 20% of the population.
Men and women, and these were not all ordinary men. There were people from declaration noblemen. Right. So when they left for have a shot, they reached hairbrush at the machine of Makkah. The Quraysh. They were angry, they were upset. Why were they upset because a at Muslims managed to escape. Alright. And secondly, this was also a huge embarrassment for them.
A huge embarrassment.
That out of all places, 80 people are leaving Makkah, because they're not safe in Makkah.
People from outside came into Makkah to be safe.
But 80 people don't feel safe in Makassar. They're leaving Macau and going elsewhere. This was a huge slap on the face. It was it was a cause of huge embarrassment for the parish. So they said you know what, at all costs, bring them back. They're humiliating us. These Muslims are embarrassing us, we have to bring them back. So what happened? They sent two people
do avicennia which two people I'm opening us and Abdullah bin or beer.
They sent them with a whole lot of gifts to avicennia that go and speak to a Najafi give him these gifts make him happy and convince him to expel the Muslims from his land. So what happened are moving on to the Lebanon Riviera, they went to have a shot and they first met the visitors,
the priests or you can say the people who were closest to the joshy. Right? His congressmen who are whatever you want to call it. So they went and met them first. They gave them many gifts. And this was basically a bribe. All right, that look, we're being so nice to you. Now when we go in court, and we speak to an A joshy. Please take our side.
So what happened? They bribed them. And then eventually they went to speak to Najafi all the visitors are present over there. They're present their case to Natasha, they say, look, these people they have abandon our religion, they have gone against the ways of our forefathers. And now they have separated themselves from our families, from their families. And they have come over here, and they will create problems for you just, you know, hand over these people back to us.
And then the Vizier said, Yeah, you should send them back. Because
you know that they were taking the side of us. But an agenda. He was a man who was
then and slowly. Right. So he said, I have to hear the other side of the story.
And he lesson in this? Yes. Don't be too quick to make a decision.
Listen to both sides. Even if the whole world is telling you something. Don't be quick, find out the other side of the story. Because remember that whenever there is a problem that is caused, all right, it's always because both parties were involved in creating that problem. It's not possible that one side is 100%. Wrong. It takes two people to create a problem. All right. Sometimes that happens, a friend comes to you crying, my husband is like this, and this and this and this and this, well hear the whole story, what does the husband have to say? Or sometimes the man goes and complains to someone to any man, my wife was like this and this and this and this, well find out the
other side of the story. And when you find out the other side of the story, you realize that both are at fault. So anyway, and the joshy he called the Muslims. The Muslims were obviously afraid.
So Jaffa de la Martin, who? Who was he
gonna be Pilate, he was a cousin of the Prophet sallallahu and brother of our little dillo Arnhem. And he was one of the people who migrated to a senior editor said that he was made like almost like the Imam like the leader of the Muslims, because remember that whenever there's a group of people anywhere, even if there's two people one should be the leader. So anyway, Jaffa levar knew he said, we're just gonna say the truth, whatever we are asked, we're gonna say the truth, we're not going to change the truth. So under joshy asked that what is his religion because of which he has you have separated yourselves from your people. You're neither on my religion, nor are you on any other
religion that exists. I mean, you're you haven't become Jews. You haven't become fire worshippers you're not wish to go on you're not Christians. What are you? What is this religion? What is this new thing that you've come up with? So Darfur at the lower end who responded he said, Oh, King, we were plunged in the depths of ignorance and, and barbarism. We adored idols we lived in unjustly, we ate the dead bodies, and we spoke abominations. We disregarded every feeling of humanity and the duties of hospitality and neighborhood were neglected. We knew no law, but that
Have the strong and then Allah raised among us, a man of whose birth, truthfulness, honesty and purity we were aware of. And he called us to the oneness of Allah and taught us not to associate anything with him. He forbade us the worship of idols, he enjoined us to speak the truth, to be faithful to our trusts, to be merciful and to regard the rights of the neighbors and kith and kin. He forbade us to speak evil of women or to eat the substance of orphans. He ordered us to flee from from evil and to abstain evil, to offer prayers, to give arms and to observe fasts, we have believed in him. We have accepted his teachings and his injunctions to worship Allah, and not to associate
anything with him. And we have allowed what he has allowed and prohibited what he has prohibited. For this reason, our people have risen against us. This is what we believe in. This is what we do. This is the man that we follow, and our people are against us. They have persecuted us, in order to make us forsake the worship of Allah and return to the worship of idols and other evils. They have tortured and injured us until finding no safety among them. We have come to your country, and hope that you will protect us from oppression.
What a comprehensive speech
and a beautiful way of doing Dawa. What a beautiful picture of Islam he has painted how that this was our state before Islam.
And now, when we have become Muslim, our state has improved.
But our people have opposed us and they have oppressed us and we have no safety among them. And this is a reason why we have come to you. So now joshy upon this he requested to hear something from the Quran.
So Jaffer of the lower on who with Sula, did he recite sudo to medium
and soilless medium. What does it talk about? The first few verses talk about the story of Zachary Artesia, the birth of your hair listener, and then about Maria and the birth of Risa his center. So when these verses were recited, what happened in a joshy he wept, he wept so much that his beard became wet.
And not just the joshy but even the priests who were with him even they wept. And Naja, she said, this is the same speech that Jesus brought, both are from the same well, or both are from the same flame meaning their origin their source is the same.
So the joshy he addressed I'm looking at us and he said, I will never hand over these people to you go back. You cannot make any plot against these people go back they have they have my protection. Any lesson we learned from this? What kind of our Yes, yes, exactly. That we see how Why is first of all, Jeff, what are the lower and Who was that? The words he used to describe Islam to describe Muslims? And then the sooner that he selected
all right, the verses that talk about the Quran, Allah Samia, hairless Anna, Maria Reese are all of this was something that Natasha was already familiar with. He loved it. And really the sutra is beautiful. The the words in which the story is narrated is truly very hard softening. And in this is a huge lesson that if we ever get the opportunity to do Dawa, to people, they want to know about Islam, start with what common grounds
common grounds. All right. I remember once we visited
Mennonite community, you know, Amish Amish community, all right, this was in Alberta somewhere. And
it was very interesting because they are in a very different version of Christianity. They're women, even the cover their heads, and the men have beards and so on anyway. So they were asking us about Islam. So we told them, and they're like, Okay, if, if the Quran is supposed to be,
you know, a continuation of the previous messages, or Mohammed similasan was supposed to be from the same chain of the prophets, then why is it the Quran considered the third testament? Alright, so anyway,
they also wanted to know, what was in the Quran.
So, my sister, she recited sort of the beginning verses, and I, I read out the translation to them. And they were just shocked that what you guys believe in Jesus in Virgin Mary. They were shocked. They had no idea what what Islam was. And when they heard the story of Madame Zakaria, they were amazed. And they asked for a copy of the Quran and we gave it to them happy meal.
Last Panthera guide them to the truth. But this was a very good conversation that took place. Right. And obviously, the idea that sort of medium should be recited came from the story.
So anyway, the crash now I'm not going to ask was a very intelligent man. Later on, he embraced Islam. Anyway, he came up with another idea. He said to the joshy, you know, these Muslims, they say very blasphemous things about your God, Jesus.
All right. So and he said, again, I have to hear the other side of the story. So he called him Watson and said, What do you say about resigning?
Again, the Muslims were scared chocolate on the floor. And he said, we're only going to speak the truth. We're not going to change the truth just to please the joshy. So he said, we say exactly what the prophet sallallahu Sallam has told us that Jesus was the servant and prophet of Allah, his rule, and his kalama that he cast upon Maria, the Virgin and all these words are from the Quran. Right? Now, remember, over here, Jaffa Omar who didn't say anything negative, he didn't say things like, he's not the Son of God. And what you say is wrong. No, he didn't. He didn't go offensive. Right? He just said something that he would agree with.
All right, few words. True.
Honest, correct words, but just enough, right. So again, an Apache. He sided with the Muslims. It is said that he picked up a small twig. And he said that By Allah, what you have said, doesn't exceed what what Jesus says by this by this twig. Meaning there is no difference between the message of Risa and the message that you have come up with. All right, no difference at all, not even as much as this small twig. So anyway, he made his final decision. And he said to us, that go away, take your gifts back and tell your people that these Muslims will stay here, they have my protection, and don't try anything again, ever. So now the Muslims had the full protection of under joshy. They
lived in Abyssinia and full security. And we see that ninja he he established friendly relations with the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And had these we learned in Muslim Dharma that our beloved Buddha he reported from his father than the joshy gifted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam plain black leather socks, which the prophet SAW the lives in war. And when he had to do will do, he wiped over his socks because he had will do from before when he put on the socks. In other narration, we learned results in was the Dharma that I should have done, no one has said that once a gift was sent to the prophet SAW the lesson from the joshy. And in that gift was also a ring with an Abyssinian
gem on it, a gold ring. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave that ring to his granddaughter, that you wear it. So anyway, from all of these traditions, we see that and the joshy
he didn't just protect the Muslims, he was also good to the Muslims, so much so that he established good relations with the prophets that a lot of them was all the way in America and then later on in Medina, and when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam later on when the Treaty of her davia was made between him and the, between the Muslims and mushrikeen of Makkah, and the prophets, a lot of them sent letters to the different kings inviting them to Islam. He also sent a letter to Mr. Joshi officially inviting him to Islam, and he accepted he became a Muslim. And this is the reason why, when he died, what happened? The prophets Allah Islam performs collateral janaza for him.
The dashi died in Abyssinia and the prophets A lot has been performed. So that's a janazah for him in Medina and this incident happened in the ninth year after he did All right.
Now the people who migrated to have a shot, all right, their virtue their rank is definitely very high. We learned that eventually when the Muslims came to Medina from Harsha or modolo, on who he saw a Smith who had come from how Russia
and he asked have saw his daughter, that Who is she? And have said that she is a smart, the daughter of roommates. He said she is the Abyssinian meaning the one who went to India, the woman who traveled oversee and she and she said yes. So remote on the lower end who said do a smart we proceeded you in digital meaning we came to Medina before you and we have more right to Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than you
all right, a smile The low aren't when she felt so annoyed. She went and complained to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and she said this is what Roman has said, and I do not like this at all. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said his right is not more than yours. For him and his companions there is one hedger but for you, meaning for the people of the boat, there are two hingeless
you have done hyjal two times
He wants to have a senior, and then from Estonia to Medina. So you have the reward of two jobs. So the virtue of the people who immigrated diversity is definitely very great. And we learned that some people who migrated to avicennia, they died. So for example, Abu Salah, he died. We had he died later on, actually. But one of the companions who died in this journey was Khalid bin, his arm, in a hadith and so forth. So here we learned the debate, when our worm said that heart had been his arm, he set out to migrate to the land of Russia. During the journey, a snake bit him and he died. And the last panel data revealed sort of the Messiah 100, that whoever goes out from his house as an
immigrant to align His Messenger and death overtakes him, then his reward is incumbent on Allah. And Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful, as a beta follower, who said that I was waiting for him and have a show, hoping that he would arrive soon. And when I heard about his death, I was severely grieved. Because whoever from the kadesh did hijra, had with him, a wife, or a child or some other relative,
but I was the only person from my tribe. And I only expected Khalid to join me because he was from his tribe. They was waiting for Holly to come when Carla died on the journey, as a beta lower and who was really really aggrieved, but alas, pounds are revealed that whoever dies in the journey of his own, then his reward for the worker, Andrew, Allah, his reward is definite with
when the Muslims were in Abyssinia. They learned many things. Obviously, they had the freedom to practice their religion, and they also lived amongst the other keytab. At one occasion, we learned this is a decent, magic, authentic hadith that the prophet SAW the lesson at one occasion, he asked one of the companions that you lived in Harsha tell us something about what you saw there. Share some story with us, some experience of yours. So a young man he said, O Messenger of Allah, while we were sitting, an elderly nun, she went fast. She walked in front of us carrying a vessel of water on her head. And there were some young boys one of them came and he pushed her. And when he pushed her
she fell, and obviously the vessel also fell. And when she stood up, she turned to him and said, you will come to know or traitor, that when Allah sets up the footstool and gathers the first and the last, and hands and feet speak of what they used to earn, you will come to know your case, and my case in his presence soon. So these words I mean, the concept over here is very similar to the concepts that we learned and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said she spoke the truth, she spoke the truth.
She definitely spoke the truth. Now back in Makkah, the opposition continued, it intensified so much so that Abubakar de la Varna was without any protection, but Allah subhanaw taala strengthened the Muslims with the conversion of Hamza rather lower the conversion of aroma they'll do a lot more on who and the machine they tried many ways to stop the Muslims to persecute the Muslims even more. However, nothing worked, until they decided to totally boycott the family of the prophets, Allah, Allah and inshallah In our next lesson, that is what we will learn about the boycott that the prophets on a lot of cinema have to face And for that, please do your readings until page number
116 116 116. All right, so Chronicle long movie Hamlet, Misha La ilaha illa Anta as the hero going to be like a Salam or Aleikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
