Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
How are you all doing?
Sadly are not Oh sweetie he'll cut him and
let him initio Pinilla Jean Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. furbish Radley assadi were silly under the rock that Emily Sani of koko de. So in our previous session we learned about the year of sorrow, which was the 10th year of prophethood. That the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Banu Hashim, when they were in the share of Abu Talib, where they were being boycotted by the Quran, by the people of Mecca in general, eventually when the boycott ended, what happened? The Banu Hashim, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they returned back to Makkah. And because remember that during this spirit of boycott, the Banu Hashim, they basically self imposed exile on themselves, right? Because
it was almost like fine, you want to boycott with us? We don't want you either. All right. So this is the reason why Banu Hashim had left Makkah and they had settled into a B pilot. And eventually when the boycott ended the balloon Hashem returned to Makkah. This was in the 10th year of the prophethood. What happened a few months after that, that Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he fell ill. And in that illness, he passed away. And we learned that the death of herbal tonic was extremely difficult with the profits of a lot of sadhana, mainly because of two reasons. First of all, because of the panic was a source of great protection for the prophets on a
lot is and it was out of fear and respect of upon him, that the Quraysh would not harm Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and losing him meant that the Quraysh would now you know, they would have no fear in harming Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And secondly, we see that I will tell him he died as a mushrik because at the time of his death, we learned that Abu Johanna and other people have the courage they came to Abu Talib to ensure that he would not say the kalama he would not believe in Mohammed salatu salam. And according to one Hadith we learned that after Abu Jihad and other Qureshi people they left the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was with Abu Talib, and they were unknown. The
Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to public lip, c'est la ilaha illAllah just say Laila in the last hour that I may testify for you on the Day of Judgment. And a lot of you said, if it was not that the kadesh would shame me, meaning they would talk bad about me and they would say that I said this out of fear, I would have said it, meaning the only thing that is preventing me from saying the kalama is that the people will say that I said it out of fear. So he refused. He refused to say the kalama and he died in that condition without saying the kalama he died as a non Muslim. And we learned that when he died, last panel data revealed indeed, you cannot guide those whom you love in
Nicoletta de man, what are in the La Jolla de Masha? Allah guides those whom He wills. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam loved his uncle, his uncle who was a non Muslim, but because there was a blood relationship between the two, there was a friendly relationship between the two the prophets Autobots and and loved his uncle. And Allah mentions that love in the Quran, which shows that there is no harm in loving your relatives or your friends who may be non Muslim as long as that is not a religious love. Right? But the prophets are a lot of mistakes that you cannot guide those whom you love. Who is it that is guided those people whom Allah wants to guide and we learned that the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam he would pray to Allah for forgiveness of Allah Tada, just like Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam, he would pray to Allah for the forgiveness of his father. And in sort of the Toba, the ayat we revealed that prohibited the Muslims that prohibited the profits of a lot of them from making draw for their relatives who had passed away in the state of Kufa.
And we see that at one occasion our best the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he asked him that will you be able to help your uncle? I will tell him he did so much for you, he protected you and he would get angry on your behalf for your sake. So are you going to
Help him in any way. Would you be able to help him in any way? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, he is in a place of minimal punishment and hellfire. And if it wasn't for me, he would have been in the deepest pits of hellfire. So we see that a butanna even though he died as a mistake, but because he did help the Muslims he he did help the prophets of Allah Allah. because of this reason, his punishment will be less compared to the punishment of other people in hellfire. Then we also learned in a hadith which is a Muslim, that the lightest punishment amongst the people of fire is for, I will call him the lightest punishment, the least punishment amongst the people of Hellfire is
for who I will call him and why, because of the fact that he helped and supported the cause of Islam. And, you know, this is something that really hurts us that if you think about it, I will call him the uncle of the prophets that a lot of some someone so close to him, someone who didn't just look after him when he was young, but also later on when he was persecuted Abu Talib was there to protect the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When it came to the boycott, Abu Talib equally suffered, right. But yet I would not have never accepted Islam. How come? Allah subhanaw taala did not guide him? Why? Because first of all, remember that Allah guides those who want to be guided, was the
truth not clear to him. It was clear, remember the incident of, of the boycott when when the treaty was dissolved upon him, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has your Lord told you that the treaty has been destroyed by the termites, right. And it will blindly based his entire case against the Quran on this, on this news that the prophets have a lot of them had given.
And likewise, we learned that I will Don it would say, you know, in his in his poetry, that I know that the religion of my nephew is the best religion nakodar limb to and Edina Mohammedan hydrology anybody yet and it's the best of all religions of the entire creation. I know that. But still he did not accept why, out of fear of embarrassment before who before his people that look doubleton if he was afraid, and he left his religion, and he got affected by Muhammad Sallallahu earlier.
And we also see that, you know, he had this you could say racism, or this belief that what his forefathers were upon was the best. And so in order to continue that legacy, he held on to COVID, he held on to the ways of his forefathers, even though the truth was so clear. So, when the truth is clear, a person has the opportunity to accept it yet he does not accept it, then why would Allah force guidance on anybody? This is not the way of Allah, He does not force guidance on people. You see, if you look at the story of hamlet of the law, and who how he converted, right, he accepted, he spoke to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, right? And then he accepted. Look at the story of a moral
dilemma on who he read Surah Taha right, he he got to know about the Quran, he learned about Islam, he accepted Islam. And in order to accept guidance, you have to give up something, what is it that you have to give up? What you were previously upon? And I was on it was not willing to give that up. Right. So when we learned that I will finally have died as a mistake, that we should not feel bad in the sense that a lot did not guide him Allah should have guided him. No, we we do not ask a lot about his decision. Right? Whose fault was it? If Abu Talib was not guided, it was his fault. He made that decision for himself, because until the last moment the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was
trying to convince him, but he did not accept right. And we learned that about Allah He said, that I would have said words that would comfort your eyes, meaning I would say the kalama so that you would be happy or Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but I cannot say that I cannot say that even though I know you will be very happy if I said it. I cannot say it because I fear my people. I have a legacy that should continue. So I cannot say that. So a person who deliberately stays away from a man than a man is not forced on him. And then we see that there is a wisdom behind this that why did the last panel Darla let this happen that avatar live remained a mystery until his death. Why? There is wisdom
behind this because you see any person from Makkah, even if he was the most noble of the people, the moment he converted to Islam, what happened? What happened? He lost his power. Look at a moral dilemma on who would anyone dare to fight with him? No. But when he accepted Islam, what happened? People came and fought with him. They attacked him. He comes out of the long run who also he was a person of high status.
in Arabia, obviously he was the brother of Obama. But what happened when he became Muslim even he was harassed. Right? And then eventually we learned that multiminer been ID for example, he was a Muslim and he gave protection to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam after Stalin's death, and shall we will learn about that today. And when motorman been it, he announced that he had given protection to the prophets that a lot of Sofia asked him that are you giving him protection because you are his follower?
Or because you are wolterman
meaning Have you changed your religion at all? wolterman are the said that No, I have not changed my religion. I am not his follower. I am giving his protection azmuth urbinati. So it was if he answered then we accept it.
So you understand here, if motorman ad was a Muslim, would the Quran accept his production for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam never so if the people respected the fact that Abu Talib was protecting the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Why did they respect it? Because Abu Talib was still a mistake.
So you see if he had become Muslim, then what protection with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam have in Makkah? He wouldn't. So there is Heckman, this that Allah let Abu Talib remain a mushrik until his death. And this is why we see that. At one occasion after his death. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the Quran did not treat me in any way that was difficult for me to bear until a blue pilot passed away.
Until a Batali passed away, meaning when obatala passed away, then the kurush really began their mistreatment of me. Because until obatala was alive, they still had some kind of respect. They wouldn't hurt me, they wouldn't harass me. After I thought about death, it was that they harassed him. And all of these incidents in which we learned that the parish physically assaulted the prophets on a lot of them. Like for instance, at one occasion, six or seven of the leaders got together and one of the men he went and brought the innards of a camel and put it on the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Many of the scholars who say that this incident happened after the death of Abu
Talib, because while obatala was alive, no one could dare do that to the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah. Anyway, after the death of Abu Talib, a few weeks later,
someone else who was very dear to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also passed away and Who was that? His wife, Khadija rhodiola, horna Ramadan of the same year of the 10th year, less than 40 days after the death of Abu Talib, Khadija of the law, and he also passed away. And this was also a very, very painful time for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because she was his emotional supporter, you can say she, she supported him, she helped him emotionally mentally. Well, I will call it protected the Prophet sallallahu Sallam physically, politically, we see that the digital dilemma and have brought him comfort and courage and confidence right from the inside. Because remember that when the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam received the first revelation, he went to hadiya. Right? And when he doubted himself, who assured him
when he was afraid, who gave him confidence, Khadija of the lower right, when he doubted himself, rather lower on her. She's the one who assured him that no, Allah would never humiliate you, he would never disgrace you. So, the death of Khadija the lower earner was also very, very difficult upon the prophets of Allah who do Salah. You know, we learned that until Khadija dilemma was alive, the prophets of Allah seven married no other woman, no other woman. What does that tell us? About her digital DeLorean that she was the perfect wife in every way, in every way. She was so close to him. She was so emotionally attached to him. He found sukoon with her,
you know, in the car, and we learned that a wife is meant to provide sukoon for the husband. Right? LEAH schooner Elena, this sukoon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam found in the journal I wonder, because anytime he was afraid, he doubted himself. He could speak to her teacher below and you see upon him, even he protected the profits of a lot of them but he did not believe in him. You understand? He did not believe in him. Her digital the law on her. She respected him. She trusted him. She believed in him and she supported him.
And this is a reason why we see that at one occasion many years later. I show below on how she got annoyed because the prophets Allison was talking about Khadija Lauren has so much. So she hinted that why do you remember her so often when Allah has given you someone who
Much better. Right? She's She's talking about herself, that I'm much better than Khadija I'm younger, I'm more beautiful, I can help you more and things like that. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said No way, Allah has not given me someone who is better because Khadija believed in me when the people rejected me.
When the people called me a liar, she confirmed my truthfulness. When they deprived me. She shared me in her well she spent her wealth on me. And Allah give me children only through her and not through any other life. Right. And this is a handy thing was that the hermit and Khadija tolovana was a woman who received greetings from Allah in this life.
This is enough to tell us about the status of Khadija to learn that when she was alive, gibreel came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam telling her that give her a salams from her Lord.
And she was given the description of her home in Ghana, when she was still alive.
I mean, this tells us about the status of Khadija below her and her
in the sight of Allah. And obviously, this woman when she was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, imagine what a relationship they must have had. Imagine the love that the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah must have had for Khadija. And no wonder the prophets of Allah said and frequently mentioned her even years after her death. You know, at one occasion, I should have known her she said that I was never as envious of the wives of the prophets on a lot of them as I was of Khadija.
She She was not jealous of any other wife. Because she knew that the prophets Allah loves them loved her. Right? But when it came to her diejenigen, Omar and her she knew that the prophets of Allah was in love Khadija more so this is why she felt jealousy and eyeshadow and he said that I never saw her. I never met her because she was very young in Makkah, right. And she said that whenever the prophets a lot of them would slaughter a goat, he would say, send it to her friends.
Meaning he would send parts of the meat portions of the meet for the Friends of Khadija blowhard.
And he would say that she loves her DJ or Khadija loved her. So send this me to her send this me to her friend, not her details, relatives, but who her friends.
I mean, this also tells us that how a husband and wife in their love for their spouse, they should also show respect to the Friends of their spouse. You know, for instance, if you truly love your husband, you can't show him that love until you show respect for his friends. Right until you accommodate them until you show importance to them. So for instance, if your husband asks you, I would like to have such and such friend of mine over, don't start rolling your eyes. Right don't show that you have no respect for his friends, or when he wants to buy a gift for them. Don't say that they don't deserve a gift. He can just buy something from the dollar store. know
if you want to show respect to your husband, if you want to show love to him, then show respect to his friends. Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he treated the Friends of Khadija the lover I know so well, even after the death of the Lord.
So anyway, one day a goat was slaughtered and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam began saying send this portion to her, send this portion to her because she was happy just friend she loved Khadija Khadija loved her. So I should have said I got so angry and I said her deja Khadija.
You understand. She said Khadija Well hello again. So she got annoyed. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in nice little zip to her.
I was provided with her love. If I love her, this is it is that Allah has given me this is provision that Allah has given me or we can understand this. And another way that I was provided with her love that she loved me and her loving me was a lesson is for me.
So the love that the prophets have a lot of them had for her dejan the love the Khadija at the lower on her head for the prophets that a lot of them This was that is
this was a lost provision for them, which shows that love is also there is it's a kind of provision. I should have the lower on her she said that I was never envious of any wife except for her deja Lee castrati victory. Yeah. Because of the frequent mention of her by the prophet sallallahu. I mean, the prophets of Allah mentioned are so often he spoke of her so much that I would become jealous. I mean, all all his wives. And we see that whenever the prophets that a lot of sudden would hear the sister of Khadija little and her holla he would, it'll become Alert All of a sudden, because her voice resemble the voice of Khadija Lauren has so much that each time he heard her that reminded him
off her digital
The death of a digital the lower just from these incidents only we learned that it must have been a tremendous loss for the profits of a lot of them a source of great grief for him. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not seen smiling for several months after her death for several months. Now, this is painful to see that the prophets on Allison's wife, you know, someone so beloved to him, dies during his lifetime. But we see in a hadith that I should have said that Salah had not been made obligatory when Khadija passed away, which is why there was no salado janessa for her the job.
It was after the death of her digital or on her, after some time that the Prophet said a lot of sin was taken on the journey of Islam and mirage. And Allah gifted him with the gift of Salah. Right? Because the people who are close to us, yes, we trust on them, and we depend on them. We rely on them and we feel comforted by the fact that they're around us. But when they're even taken away,
when those who shelter you and those who love you and those who emotionally support you, when you lose them and you feel like you're alone. It is then that you really strengthen your bond with Allah subhanho wa Taala and you learn to rely only upon Allah azza wa jal.
So we see that those who are closest to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were taken away,
and he was gifted with a gift of Salah. So that he would trust only upon Allah subhana wa Darla and and this is a huge lesson for all of us.
We see that after some time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married so the little do long run in the same year, meaning in the 10th year. And this was at the suggestion of somebody so the Prophet sallallahu unwelcomed that suggestion and he made Zelda, there'll be a lot more now. Now, the kadesh they really took advantage of avatar lips death, and they increase their persecution.
A few days after the death of Abu Talib. What happened that Abu lahab imagine out of all people, Abu lahab, he saw the profits of a lot of women being abused. And he couldn't take it. He couldn't handle it. Before I will I was the one who would have used the profits of the Law Center. And now I will not have does not like the fact that the Quraysh are abusing the profit or loss and so he went up to the profits on a lot of cinnamon he said oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam be as you were in the time of Abu Talib, for as long as I'm alive, you should live in the same manner. In other words, he said to the prophets, a lot of them that you have my protection, I will I have all right, why did I
will I have given protection because of will I was also an uncle of the prophets on a lot of them. And in that society was only natural that if one uncle dies, then automatically the next uncle, right, he is the one in charge. So I will not have he almost felt responsible. You know, he felt like it was his responsibility to give protection to the prophets of Allah.
And this would not be in his loyalty to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam but in his loyalty to a butanna. Right or to his tribe, that this is what the elders are supposed to do. So me as an elder of my tribe, I have to shelter my nephew, I have to protect my nephew. So he gave his protection to the prophets of Allah center. Now, obviously, people like Abuja, hell, they weren't too happy with that. So they had to come up with something to make Abu lahab change his mind. So Abu Jamal said to I will have go ask Mohammed Salah Larsen, where's your father? Where's
You see, it's a trick question. So I will I have, he went and asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he said he is with his people. He is with his people, meaning wherever his people will be. That is where the Matata will be.
Now the prophets on a lot of them did not say he's in hellfire.
Because if he would say that I will have would become angry. Right. But in saying that he is with his people. I mean, that was a true statement. Who were the people of Abdulmutallab, they were all mystic. So wherever they will end up, that is where the notary will end up because amaru mermen have been a person will be with those whom he loves. So we'll have was happy. Like, yeah, he's with his people. Right? The normal people, those who have a lot of respect and high status, he's he's among them. So I will do hell. He said, No, I asked him where, where are they?
Anyway, I will have when he realized that that is of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam meant that he will be in Hellfire with the rest of his people will have got angry, he walked he walked he took back his protection from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after only 20 days. So now the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is in Makkah without any protection, and every other day he's being physically assaulted.
abused, and he knew that he needed something he needed somebody to protect him. And when he found nobody in Makkah, who would offer him protection, he realized that he had to look elsewhere. So what happened? The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he went with Zaid de la Mourinho on foot to upper
right. And a thigh if is not too far from Makkah, it's very close to Makkah. And it's very amazing. Anybody here when been to a live? How is it live? Exactly. It's just beautiful. You know, it's amazing Makkah desert. Right? Just barren, empty mountains, valleys, sand, rock. That's it. But when you go to a dive, you wonder, am I still in Arabia, that even the color of the mud is different. Right? That in mokai team, so dead and lifeless, but in a thrive it's it's it's a very bright color. And it's in mountains. It's a valley. So and very lush, very green. And because of this reason, in a thought, if we see a lot of agriculture there in the sense that there are many orchards, many
gardens over there, even at that time, there were many gardens of grapevines, right in in life. And there was no concept of grapes growing in Makkah. I remember when I visited a thought, if somebody who took us over there, they showed us this garden, and they said that in this garden, we grow this particular flower from which we extract out of,
and that Apple, just a small bottle of it costs, you know, 1000s of real. So anyway, imagine flowers growing in a pot if it's just a completely different place. So anyway, I thought it was close to Morocco. But when you go to buy from Morocco takes at least an hour. Right driving, because you're going winding around the mountains, and then you're going to arrive, but the profits on a lot of them, he did not go into mount he went on foot with data lower and why because he did not want to attract any kind of attention from the people of Makkah. If you go on a camel, it's obvious you're going far. Right? So they would wonder, Where's he going? But if you're just walking outside, then
Okay, you're walking, you'll be back in no time. So the prophets of the last man went to a thought if in this manner, he walked there. And you can imagine the journey must have been hard. It took at least a day, if not more, to reach a thought if and when the prophets are the lightest and unreached apart if what did he do there? He went and spoke to the leaders of about if we were three brothers, the three chiefs were three brothers. Right? And he offered Islam to them and he asked them for production. And they did not just reject him. They humiliated him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and had these witches in Buhari I should have lower on her. She asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at one occasion that have you encountered a day that was harder, more difficult for you than the day of the Battle of
because as far as she knew or heard was the most difficult time for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims because remember, the prophets have a lot of them he got physically injured and overhead. Right? I'm sure you're familiar with the incident where you know something, it penetrated the cheek of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the helmet, right when somebody hit him, and he fell in the hole, the helmet, the rings of it that went inside the cheek of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam imagine that one of the companions, he came, and he tried to pull that out, pull those links are with his mouth. And when he tried to do that, his tooth came out. And he was not able to extract it
out. And he tried again into his other tooth schema. You can imagine how deep that must have been. He was the prophets that a lot of them was physically wounded, and he had lost 70 companions. 70 of his friends had died in Ohio. So as far as I showed the love on her new world was the most difficult day for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So she asked him one day that was there any other day any other time in your life that was more difficult than that? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes. And what was it? It was a day off? I thought if he said your tribes have troubled me a lot, meaning the people of Makkah, they gave me a lot of difficulty and the worst trouble was the trouble
on the day of October meaning five, when I presented myself to Eben Abdulla, Ill been bin Buccola, meaning one of the leaders of a thought if and remember, there were three brothers, right? So one by one, the prophets that a lot of them went to them, asking them for protection. And just one thing before we continue, why is it that the prophets of Allah of sin went to a wildlife out of all places? Why didn't he just go to Abyssinia when he knew that he was so friendly, and so good? Why did you go to thought if because he thought it was cool.
to Makkah, all right, very close to Morocco. And if the prophets of Allah Addison was in thought if if you could find shelter there, he could still live in Makkah.
He wouldn't have to leave Makkah.
All right, because the people have thought even the people of Makkah, they were familiar with each other. And they even had some intermarriages, one of the leaders of life was married to one of the distant organs of the prophets, Elias Allah. All right. So if someone from time gave the profit or loss and protection, he could still live in Makkah. You understand? And even if he had to live in thought, if Makkah was still close by, he could still come to the Kaaba, and he could still do Dawa to the pilgrims. Right? And remember that if he went to Brasilia, then Okay, he would be safe there. But what about Dawa? What about his mission? Right? He could live in peace and avicennia perhaps
very happy very comfortably, with a lot of dignity and honor and respect. But he chose the more difficult way. Why?
Why, in order to fulfill his mission, his purpose.
Remember that as Muslims, we have not been sent here to just live our selfish lives in peace and in happiness, be concerned about our health and our clothes in our homes and our children and our relatives. We have a duty as people of the Muslim oma, we are going to be questioned about it.
Until the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took this responsibility very seriously. He was the last messenger. There was no prophet coming after him.
And even though it was so difficult for him to remain in Makkah, he tried his best to stay there. Despite the insults and the abuse here, he remained in Macau, and he wanted to stay in Mecca. This is the reason why he went to a bar if finding shelter from there. But what happened The Prophet said a lot of them said he did not respond to my demand. The leader in a thought if all three of them one by one after the other, they did not respond to his request. In fact, they were very harsh one of them he said that if Allah sent to you as a prophet, I might as well tear down the curtains of the Kaaba,
meaning I don't accept it, you as a prophet, how is it possible? Because he considered himself better than the prophets of Allah does. And I mean, this is why, you know, in the Quran, it is mentioned that they say, How come? Allah did not choose one of the two great men,
one of the great men from the two cities, meaning the great man from afar, if or the great man from Makkah, why Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, why not somebody else? All right, another one of them. He said, I cannot speak to you, I don't even want to speak to you. Because if you're really a prophet, you too will leave for me. And if you're not a prophet, and you're lying about this, then you're beneath my dignity, I don't even want to speak to you. So basically, they've marked at him indirectly.
And they rejected the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So what happened? The prophets of Allah sent him he he went, you know, to the streets of a thought, if marketplaces of thought if and he did Dawa, to the common people. So we see that first of all, he went and spoke to the chiefs, when he did not receive any positive response from them. Then he went to the rest of the people doing their work to them. But obviously, the Chiefs were not happy with that. So they sent a mob behind him sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Why, to chase him away from but if to chase him out of five and far away from five so that he wouldn't even think about coming back to life. And this mob, what did they do they
basically, you know, felted the profits or losses and with insults as well as rocks, as well as stones.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that I departed, overwhelmed with excessive sorrow. And I proceeded on and I could not relax until I found myself at ornithology, a place that is outside of life. And you see the words over here, that I could not relax until I found myself at that place, which means that from the moment he left the bar if until he reached this particular location, he was just trying to get away. Why? Because a mob was chasing him, constantly hurling stones at him, constantly abusing him. And when the Prophet said a lot of them reached this place, we see that he took shelter in a garden. Right. And that garden, it belonged to Aruba and Chiba Neruda and Chiba
they were people for off Makkah. They were from the kurush. And they had gardens outside of a thought if, because a thigh was like a resort, right and the rich, the wealthy people of Makkah, they own property, in and around a thought, if all right, so the prophet SAW the laws and went in this garden and he found shelter over there. And it is here that he made the
Famous to our off Mr. darphin Allahumma. Eliza Dushku Darfur poverty will kill Attila t. Now this there are there is absolutely no chain behind it, meaning there is no Senate for it. Meaning if you want to verify its authenticity, you cannot do that by means of narration. All right? Because it's not reported in any book of Hades, it is found in Sierra books, right in books of Sierra. And even in the books of Sierra, there is no chain of narration that is mentioned. All right. However, the meaning is correct. And many scholars say that the draw the meaning is, it is so meaningful, it is so relevant, that you don't need a chain of narration to verify its authenticity,
you understand, but if you look at it from the perspective of the mohabbatein, or the scholars, then it does not carry any weight, you can say. However, according to the scholars of Sierra, they say that it doesn't even need any, you can say chain of narration, right? However, the meaning is correct. And the meaning is, in fact very powerful.
Because if you if you look at the DA, what does it say? That Oh Allah, I complain only to you of my weakness.
I cannot complain to anybody else. Because you see, I thought it was not there. The general dilemma is not there, who does he share his grief with nobody?
And and who can? Who would listen to him? And who can help him in that situation? Nobody can? Right? And what is the profit subtleness? And I'm saying that if this is not your anger on me,
then I don't care. Whatever happens, meaning as long as you're pleased with me, I'm okay. Because you see when you when you find something difficult in the way of Allah, or even in general in life, when you have a problem, what do you think?
What do you think? Maybe Allah is angry with me.
Recently, I met the sister who found out that she had cancer and she underwent surgery. And she kept saying that I have committed some sin. Allah is angry with me.
And I was comforting her that look, these tests are a part of life. Just because we're going through something difficult. That does not necessarily mean that Allah is angry with us a lot as those whom he loves. Also, it depends on us. How do we react in this time of test that will determine whether this difficulty was a punishment, or a test? If this difficulty draws us closer to Allah, then this was not a punishment, not at all.
And if this difficulty takes us far from London, yes, it was a punishment.
So anyway, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his door, he said that all life, you're not angry with me, I'm okay. I accept this. And if you're angry with me, then it's your forgiveness that I asked for. So anyway, Allahu arland, whether this happened or not, but the words of the DA are definitely very relevant and meaningful. So the prophets have a lot of enemies in that garden. And then what happens earthway and Shiva, they saw the profits of the loss and being chased and they saw the mob following him. And they saw him entering into his garden, and they felt pity for him. Because after all, they were Kurdish and the Prophet said a lot of them was also from the Polish, and who had
chased him out. It was a tribes of thought if the houses in the thief and you see the horizon, and polish houses in afar if and Qureshi of Makkah,
even though they were familiar with each other, they were on some friendly terms, but there was also a silent battle between the two. Silent battle. Right, for what for power?
Because the tribes of thought if he wasn't a thief, they were very wealthy. Very, very wealthy.
Good, ah, we're also wealthy. But the Croatia Cava.
All right. And the housing did not,
even though there were some intermarriages, but still, there was a silent battle between the two. All right, the Quraysh considered themselves superior, and the horizon, they did not want to accept their superiority. All right. So ritva and shaybah, when they saw that her wasn't treated the prophets that a lot of them in this way, even though they did not believe in the prophets or the laws and what happened, they felt pity for him. You understand? This is just like if someone from your country, right, or someone from your city, or someone from your school, or from your workplace, even if you disagree with them, and you have many differences with them, just because they are one
of you. in one respect, do you get angry when they're mistreated? You do.
Right. So earthborn Chiba, they felt sorry for the prophets that a lot of them and they sent one of their servants to the prophets on an auditorium with some food. And who was that servant
A Christian slave of theirs, whose name was a Deus, right? And this man he came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam brought him some grapes. The Prophet said, a lot of them said, Bismillah, before he ate, and that man, he said, Why did you say, the people of this place don't say Bismillah?
Right? And the prophets are a lot of them said, My Lord has told me to say Bismillah. And because the man had said that the people of this place don't say that it meant that that man was not from Arabia. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him, Where are you from? are thus he said, I'm from Nineveh.
The prophets Allison said, innovate the city of Yunus, Allah servant, Yunus and he said, What do you know about Yunus said Yunus was a prophet, and I am also a prophet. So anywhere that spoke to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he believed in him, he, he kissed his hands his feet,
because in their tradition, this is what they did to show respect to someone of high status, so that he believed in the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Anyway, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he was still in that garden, what happened? The Hadith continues, I found myself at ornithology, I lifted my head towards the sky, I lifted my head towards the sky to see a cloud shading me. And I looked up and saw jabril and he called me saying, Allah has heard your people saying to you mean, what your people have said to you, Ally's heard that. And Allah has heard what they have said to you, and Allah has sent the angel of the mountains to you, so that you may order him to do whatever you wish
to these people. So the angel of the mountains, he called, and he greeted the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, Oh, Muhammad, order what you wish, if you like, I will let the ox chabane, meaning these two mountains, I will cause them to fall on them. Because remember, people have a thought if we're in a valley between mountains. So the angel of the mountain is saying, If you want, I will join these mountains so that these people are finished the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, No, I hope that Allah will let them have children, who will worship Allah alone, and will worship none besides Him. Last night, I was telling my son, the story of a thought if and when I told him that,
you know, the angel of the mountains, he appeared and he asked the prophets on a lot of them that if you want, I will join these mountains, and the people have thought it will be finished.
So I asked him, What do you think the profits are? A lot of them said?
He said, he must have said yes.
Because they're bad people. They deserve to be punished.
Right? logically, that makes sense. Revenge. You've been hurt. You take revenge. And I told him that no, and the prophets that a lot of them said, No, do not finish them. You should have seen the shock on his face. What do you mean they did something so bad, they deserve to be finished? How could the prophets Allah is that and forgive them?
And I was reminded, Well, Matt, also laka Illa.
Allah, Allah me, he was sent only as a mercy to the people of the worlds.
You see the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he chose to forgive the people of life, he was given the choice, if you want, take revenge, if you want, forgive, it's up to you. You made the decision and whatever you decide, it will be done. And the prophets of Allah said him, he chose to forgive, he made that decision himself. It was not suggested to him, he made that decision himself to forgive those who hurt him.
And when a person is in the way of Allah, then he must learn to forgive those who hurt him. Because if you carry this baggage with you, she hurt me. And she said this, and he did that. Then you cannot go far. You will be weighed down with grudges. You will be weighed down with anger with frustration, and you cannot go far.
If you look at the prophets of Allah, what do you see in their sila? That they were patient? Right? And they kept forgiving their people? How do you think no holiday Salaam could continue for 950 years? How?
How could he because He forgive his people every day. If he hadn't forgiven them, he wouldn't continue for more than nine days. How is it that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam continued for so long? 30 years of persecution in Makkah, and then in Medina later on also, how? How could he go so far? How could he be the person who smile the most? How?
If he did not forgive?
So you see a person who is in the way of Allah, Who does any kind of work for the deen that he must learn to clean his heart. He must
Learn to forgive people. Because this is a path on which you are constantly abused. You're constantly hurt, you're hurt by those who are closest to you. You're annoyed by those who claim to love you the most. And you're harassed by those who don't even know you.
You're attacked by those who don't even know you.
And if you hold on to these feelings, these grudges you cannot go for.
So in this is a huge lesson that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he chose to forgive the people of life. And if he hadn't forgiven them, how could you have continued? So anyway, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he made his way back to Makkah now from about if
now, this hadith that I've mentioned to you over here, it gives a very general description of the entire incident. I mean, many of the details I've added over here, because the Hardison Bahati it's it's very brief. It doesn't tell us about our das about the grapes, or about the mob or about the people hitting him and his shoes or his body, you know, bleeding, these descriptions are not found in the in this Hardee's. Right? And this Hadees What is it the prophets on a lot of them describing the incident of a thought if in his own words, right?
He, he mentioned this, this entire incident in such general terms.
And what does this teach us that we should not lament over our difficulties, we should not, you know, keep talking about the sufferings that we have endured in the way of Allah, before other people.
We shouldn't do that. I mean, the prophets, Allah loves him is talking to his wife, I should have the lower now. But even when he's talking to her, telling her about the difficulty of a thought, if he doesn't go in describing the details of hardship, why, because he doesn't want her pity. He doesn't want her sympathy.
The idea is with Allah,
Allah knows what you have suffered in his way. And we don't need to go on telling people about every little thing. I was up till two o'clock or two or five, you know, I was trying to do my lesson. You know, I didn't even have breakfast, I couldn't even finish my tea this morning.
I'm so tired, my back is hurting because I was sitting for so long. We don't need to talk about these things all the time. Allah knows.
Allah knows and what we have suffered, we have suffered in his way, it's sufficient that he knows about it.
You know, unless there is a benefit in telling other people so that they will learn or they will be motivated, then it makes sense. But talking about our problems with the whole world,
it doesn't fit a person who has self worth,
you know, who values himself, we should not be, you know, celebrating our problems and our difficulties by talking about them so often, because you see, each time you mentioned it,
you feel that pain,
isn't it? You know, for instance, if you keep whining the whole day, I did not get to finish my coffee this morning.
And you think about those last three, four sips that remained in the cup that must be sitting in the you know, in the kitchen sink right now. And you're just you're craving for those four sips is just eating you up. Right.
So we see that really the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he did not hold on to such feelings, he let them go.
He just let them go. He didn't dwell on them. And this is how the profits or loss no one so far, this is how he was so successful.
Anyway, the profits of a loss animate his way back to Makkah, and he stopped it Knopfler journey was long, and now he was even injured and wounded. So he stopped at NACA, and in the night he prayed tm or at federa time when he was performing his Salah. What happened? A group of jinn heard him reciting the Quran and they listened to him and they believed in him and he did not even know this had happened. How did he find out? Allah soprano gone and revealed if instead of a half we learn what it sort of net la Cana phenomenal Genie? Yes, the Marina. fella how the robo Carlo honestly to follow Mako do wallow in a coma moon z. And mentioned when we directed to you we sent to you a group
of the jinn listening to the Quran. And when they attended it, they said listen quietly. And when the recitation was concluded, they went back to their people as Warner's. They said, Oh our people. Indeed we have heard a book revealed after Moses confirming what was before it, which guides to the truth and also to a straight path or our people respond to the Messenger of Allah and believe in him. Allah forgive for you your sins and protect you from a painful punishment. And he who does not respond to the color of Allah will not cause failure to him upon earth and he will not have the size
And any protectors, those are in manifest error.
So we see the profit and loss in a 123, hoping that somebody would believe. But the people over five didn't believe, who believed a Christian slave believed. And then a group of jinn believed.
Right? So the Prophet said, a lot of times effort was not wasted.
Because sometimes, when you do something for the sake of Allah, you try so hard, but when you see the results were hardly any results, you feel disappointed.
But an action that is done with sincerity is never wasted.
A loss of panel data will preserve the reward, a loss of panel data will bring about good results. And it so happened over here that a group of jinn believed and we see that this was the first time that the jinn had come to know about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Dawa and they spread amongst the other jinn, in doing their work to them. And you see, in these verses, the one who does not respond to the color of Allah will not cause failure to Allah. So the prophets on the law of sin was comforted the people of thought if I rejected you, don't worry, they cannot cause failure.
And eventually what happened? Many, many, many years later, after Morocco was conquered, but it was also conquered.
Now the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he reached Makkah outside of Morocco, he sent word to different leaders in Makkah, hoping that somebody would give him protection because if he didn't have protection, how could even enter into Makkah?
One after the other, they refused, apologizing to him. So a lot of them that sorry, we cannot give you protection because of this and this and this reason. Finally, mother Indian ID, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent message to him. And motorman. Adi,
what did he do? He told his sons put your armor on, and go bring them into Makkah.
So he didn't just say verbally that you have my protection he sent his sons Go bring him back into Makkah. So they went outside Makkah, brought the prophets on a lot of send them in Makkah guarding him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to the Kaaba, he performed to laugh, while the sons of motorman rd were guarding him, and then let them in or the he told the pradesh that Hamlet sallallahu Sallam has my protection, he is under my protection. And it was a fee and this is where he asked him that do you give them protection because you are his follower? And he said, No, I'm not as follower. I'm still up on my religion, but I give him my protection. So it was a fee and said,
then we accept it. So the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah was now in the protection of who motorman rd, and this was for a year and a half to two years now, until the Prophet sallallahu Sallam migrated to Medina.
But anyway, the arguments of the mushrikeen they only increased their mockery. It only increased their opposition it worsened what they demanded from him it worse than now they demanded more and more miracles from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and Allah did the story, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with a miracle. And what was that miracle? The miracle of an Israelite will mirror lodge Elisa is a night journey from Mecca to Medina. Which is mentioned in sort of Islam. And El Mirage. Sorry, not Mecca to Medina maka to Jerusalem. Right. And Mirage is the ascension from Jerusalem, up to the skies, where the prophets have a lot of sun and was made to see many, many signs he was made
to see the prophets different angels different semi wet, Jenna jahannam people being punished, the rewards that are in general and also up to citrato monta and the prophets Allison returned with the gift of five prayers, five silhouette because when a person is in difficulty when a person feels lonely, what should he do? What should walk through, he should do such that and draw even closer to a loss upon without this as a solution to our problems. This is what will take grief and fear away from us. So panicle long will be handed to Allah Illa illa Anta Mr. Furukawa to bootleg cinema Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
