Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Al Mustafa while he was soccabet in one minute, be happy Illa yo Mila powerbank
so in the sixth year after hige Allah
so the Islamic calendar, because I have young ones here, so I will explain
the hedger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is his migration from Mecca to Medina.
All other calendars start by someone's birthday or someone's death day and so on and so forth. So if you look at the, you know, Christian calendar started at the birth of Christ, and other calendars started at the start of a reign of kingo, the death or the birth and so on. The Islamic calendar starts at the migration of the prophets of the law, Holly, he was seldom from Mecca to Medina. So, when we say six years after he Jura, as in six years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina
so Islam before that started in Makkah,
and it was in Makkah for 13 years. So for 13 years, the prophet preached to the people of Mecca, and eventually left Mecca after 13 years and came to Medina. So initial 13 years then another six years of power. So now we are on the
sixth year after Hydra, you all with me?
So 60 around the hedgerows, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided
to expand the dollar hour beyond his own borders, beyond his vicinity. So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent eight letters to eight different kings,
Kings from the Arab and dodgem.
So it went far and wide. This is the 60 after Hydra.
one of the kings he sent it to his Samana, if not
so, Manoj is the CEO of bamboo hanifa. He is the leader of the tribe of Banu hanifa, in the areas of Nigeria.
he reigned over a place called the Amana.
And he was a man authoritative enough people had gathered around him enough, while obedient to Him enough to warrant a letter from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam because the prophet SAW cylinder and send the letter, you only sent eight letters. And so Mama was one that qualified to receive a letter as a monarch, as a leader, as a king from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And when the letter cam,
his ego and his,
you know, prior programming, took the better of him and he rejected the invite of the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah He was in
remember the name so mama Ebner, or said,
So, and not only that,
he killed the messenger of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
And the fire of hatred burns so much inside him.
Because How do I explain this? You know, because we live in 2020 in Australia,
very different from the desert in the time of the Prophet,
cultures differ from place to place,
and the cultures of the Arabs of those days.
Their respect and reverence of their forefathers was very huge. So if you told them come to this Dean and the dean says, La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah there is nothing worthy of worship except for one Allah which means all the other gods are false. That really annoyed him because what about my father?
You know what the day worship so so manna, burning with anger, even decided he is going to kill the Prophet Solomon
How to your son.
But his uncle intervened you know that this is not a normal man, you're gonna go and attack like this is a man whose people
hold on to every utterance off so he refrain from killing the flock trying to attack the process alone. But nonetheless, he attacked some of the Sahaba and, you know, took some of the Sahaba were hurt and died at his hand.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reached a place where he declared him
an enemy of Islam and the Muslims and his blood viable.
So this is Amanda.
And then sapan Olivia hilma Kadir.
So lesson number one.
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by the 60 year has a relative degree of comfort in his surroundings, the locals have become Muslims. He is the Prophet of Allah, He is revered he is obey this peace, tranquility and so on and so forth. Yet, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sends letters out
to other people, and in particular to their monarchs and the kings.
This teaches us a couple of lessons, dear ones, lesson number one.
A lot of bulldozer has given me and you and the Sahaba and the Prophet before us this life of guidance.
This light is not a light, designed for you to hide under your arm, no alight for you to use with your home and family and then don't care about what happens to the rest of humanity.
So from a place of care from a place of concern from a place of love, from a place of humanity, the prophets on the lahardee he was salam, as soon as he has the opportunity extends the Dawa, to the next realm.
So you yourselves Allah protect and bless you. Yara Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed your house with guidance. Your Muslims you pray you come here to the masjid will Allah Hill hamdulillah Mina? Allah has shown you right from wrong, you know, you have guidance. And one lot, sometimes you don't know what the guidance is, like you don't know, the form will have a lot of bullet upon you for guidance. Can I give one rude simple example because of a young woman sitting in front of me.
Like, at the very least, the Koran taught you personal hygiene, like the dean taught you personal hygiene, you know, when you go to the bathroom wash?
Like That is something 80% of the population are struggling with.
Because they use a toilet paper walk out and think it's done.
And if you put mud on this cloth here and toilet paper at you'll see a stain mark here, that's not done, sweetheart, you got to wash it.
Do you understand me like this guide? That's as simple as I can make it.
Like even that in 2020 people are still struggling with basic hygiene and forget about finding their load. Why off? So when I say Allah has given you guidance, introspect and think from the smallest to the biggest online is profit taught you how
in a meeting yesterday.
And I saw a couple
and I said,
You didn't know that alcohol is good or bad. You drank.
You saw the product. You know, whether that's drunk driving in a car accident, whether that's the morning after pill, whether that's like, Oh my god, what did I do last night? All that happened because you drank you drank because you didn't know that drinking was bad. Someone didn't tell you that. Listen, Allah has forbidden this. That's guidance. Do you understand me? One of the people I worked with in my last work?
You know, many, many years ago, he told me he said, my brother my brother was killed.
Saw him thinking you're not hamdulillah This is Australia. Allah protected Europe. You know, this place of peace. We are not at war. There is no famine. What do you mean they killed my brother. He said
My brother went out partying with his friends you know miners from the mining field and what and in mining US Steel cat boots. You know what I'm talking about still cat boots, still cat boots. So because they got drunk an argument happened they got carried away they kicked my brother in the head and he died
trace it back they drank they, you know, their senses became their sensitize the awareness died. They might silly decisions, cuz no one's told them that listen, forbidden wrong bad for you. So at every stage I can talk but my point is, Allah has given you guidance, clarity, instructions of what to do what every step, and people outside are yearning, dying, confused looking for it. So it becomes your duty
to share the slides, let others see the ones and before they can see what their eyes their hearts must accept. So you must become people whose character enters the heart who, whose character opens the doors of the hearts you Do you understand what I'm saying so that then they see the heart and guidance through you. That's the first one
become proactive and sharing the light because water bull acaba, Allah has given you light and if a person becomes guided at your hands, it is better for you than the wall than what is in it.
It is better for you than the wall than what is in it. And Allah onna me and you with becoming a source of guidance for those that are not guided. First one second lesson, note that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent the invites out to the leaders of the tribes.
Because the social structure of humankind is such that a leader has clout.
A leader has influence if a leader chooses a certain direction, it is likely that more people will follow that direction. So for example, if you teach a amazing lesson, a new concept give a new idea to the head of an institution. Imagine you give an idea to the head of a school.
He has and she has the capacity to roll that out, admits 100 students and 20 teachers and if the institution's bigger, bigger students and Do you understand me and if it's a university and if it's a king, who is beloved by his people, he becomes guided you know if you look at how they market things
you know a lot of you
are wearing clothing. If you trace it back you're wearing it because you saw someone wear it on TV somewhere I mean not now because now you're in the mosque but you know when when you dress to be cool outside.
You dress because you saw someone else you saw Beckham or you saw some movie star and when when you were with you, you think you're that you know, so the leader has clout. So imagine if that person instead of flaunting I share to a T shirt is now promoting Islam. And I saw a beautiful example in the Pakistani cricket team. You know, and one of the brothers and accommodator they've always been Muslims but he turned more to Islam and you saw the beard grow and the prayer and then you saw it and other clubs and other countries and others and people started to show their colors
in the sports arena to show the Islam and now Allah blessing protecting the Arab on a human boss the world's Habib camp.
So now you know you see a lot of other UFC fighters you know proud of the colors of Islam confident in their heritage want to talk about it and because you know leadership, whether that's authority by position or iconic because you're big and at it from wisdom, if you want to be more effective, invest in something that has
more returns. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to these like sent messages because now
He's He's busy, he can't go individually city to city and door to door. So he sent messages out. And so Mama was one of those.
So, so mama rejected,
the profit of all loans, which shows you on the thin your dour at times your message is gonna get rejected because you're not better at it than the prophet of God.
And that's alright carpet on the chin and keep going. That's just part of life and it's to develop you and strengthen you and you get
you know, if you earn something through difficulty, there's more reward than than to get it easily. So Allah Hill hum, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba here
were challenged by snowman and some of them died in the process. So So Hanna Levy, big hill, MacArthur,
Samana, decided he is going to go to O'Meara. And again, because I have different types of people sitting here, my Allah protect your own rights when you go to Makkah and circumambulate, around the Gada.
And there's some other things but for this, this is not an ombre lesson. So he decided he is going to go to ombre. They used to do ombre before Islam as well and their own style, he is going to do ombre sacrifice to the idols and then come back around this time.
The scouts or the Army or a battalion of Islam is going through a similar area, the two cross and they capture him
that capture who so Mama,
but they don't know this is so Mama.
So they bring him to Medina.
And they tie him and one of the pillars of the masjid, waiting for the prophet to give instruction that Who is this? First of all, who is your prophet? Because the Prophet knows? And secondly, what should we do with him?
So the Prophet sees them from the law he was sent them from afar. And he says, Do you know who you've brought, so they've gone online is profit knows best. They said, this is so Mama.
You know, the one that killed the messenger of the messenger and the one that had hurt and killed some of us have.
and now he is a captive.
And the heart of Islam, like in the mosque of the Prophet, the door of the house of the Prophet opens into the mosque and other doors open and inside this is the city center of Islam, you know, please tied there.
So first question to you, dear ones.
put yourselves in this position where a person has rejected your invite, killed your messenger.
plan to kill you, and then kill some of your companions as well. And now you have him at your mercy.
Do you understand?
And this is the heart of Islam and the heart of a prophet learn.
So the Prophet said, this is so Mama. It was said.
tend to him Well, look after him. Make sure he's comfortable.
And then he saw Salah, went into his own house, and he said prepare some food for samama and ordered that in the morning in the afternoon. The camel should be milked and camel milk should be taken to him.
Who did what rejected his message kill the messenger killed his Sahaba
so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let him be like this
and met him a day later.
You see human management, human psychology is an art.
A lot of times we do something in a way that is not productive when we expect productive results.
We don't know that
The Psychology of the person we're dealing with we do something that totally annoys the person and we expect a response of total satisfaction.
If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had gone to Samana
straight away like this, ah What happened?
Remember what you did to you remember what you did to him?
He could have, so mama would have responded.
And the same arrogance that you would expect a bed one leader to respond or he would be scared
there would be no chance of heart change, or it would be either fear or anger.
So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam open the doors of his heart before he opened the doors of his eyes and ears
like he conditioned the man to relax, put down his Gods
disperse of his fears and anxieties and hatred because when he eats your food at your mercy when he gets a drink at your mercy and is expecting retribution naturally he is going to be indebted to you like I said all this bad things about this guy did all the silly things and here he is milking camels will meet to feed many doesn't have to you know i'm i'm a slave I am a servant or captivity is at his mercy so and the Prophet waited and white do ones a lot of times we do something and we want it now and now is not the right time for it tomorrow or the day after is
like this issue of rushing one thing everything yesterday causes a lot of problems so notice the profit obviously wants to finalize this matter he obviously wants to conclude and you know get a closure on this on this issue. But he holds back just feed him look after him
be hospitable white Sunday doesn't face to face him in case he say something that is disrespectful and then the Prophet Do you understand me what creates the climate then and beyond acceptable for a successful discussion? And then next day he comes to him and he says mother in the castle man
How are things with your mama
and the other have daughter soon because the word has every type of meaning in it. But they are in debt like how are things so mama you know if you have the brain of a goldfish, you will look around you say game up I'm at your mercy
you know instead of saying What do you want me to do with you Do you want me to cut you the army to bash you only to make it to pieces send it to mommy you know stuff like that?
No, just sighs by the end here. So mama How are things? So So mama says and imagine he's a person in a tribe versus the normal systems. Easy because votes you know, tribal system he's become a king. Like this is personality you're dealing with.
So he says the ideal Hi. All good.
he says into nine to nine Allah Shakira.
Listen, oh Mohammed.
If you be benevolent, you will be benevolent on someone who knows how to be grateful. Like if you decide to be magnanimous gracious, I know how to be grateful.
in total, took till they're determined and if you kill if you decide to kill me, then know that you kill someone who was a person of
value I mean as a person with lineage and with tribe and with community like they will come ask for the compensation of that blood whether that's by blood or by money. Like killing me is not an easy affair. I have a tribe there.
What indurated mal for saltwater machines and if you want money if you want, you know, ransom asked it will be granted.
So the Prophet went Salalah Holly was lamb Abby who only went
prayed and the Hadees of Abu hurayrah he didn't
Come to him the next day.
Then he came the day after.
So he's waiting for some ama to a climber tines to see the Sahaba see the characters, see the community, let the kindness marinate let it go into the into the mind. Let it soak, let the conditioning happen. Let the man get prepared and you see the hikma and knowing psychology and knowing the hearts and minds of men and having this is something we are so alien to these days. Because we look at a little verse or howdy Thea and we follow it as as we think by our own understandings and there's an ocean we are unaware of. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Mr. day came a day after and ask them the same question again. Mazda in the Kia Soul manner
How are things with you also Nana so mama says like I told you yesterday in ductile talk to them in if you kill you kill someone whose blood is whitey? Who has tribe and lineage they will come seeking, you know, revenge or compensation. What in turn I'm Tony I'm Allah Shakur. And if you are graceful and gracious and benevolent, and magnanimous, then I know how to be grateful. We're in touray del mal for saltwater ama [???] and if you want wealth ask it will be granted.
So the Prophet left them and went now imagine you have Savannah What are you thinking because you're not you're not there for a minute you sit in bed days thinking you have nothing to do but to think cuz no one's making you farm you just sit in so sit down what else are you gonna do? You're looking and thinking.
So then the processor lamp
cam for a third time after this day the next day. So the first he met him first after
you know the first meeting, then Mr. day then
now I met him the next day without missing and this is the beauty of mine and your religion.
That the record is so particularly accurate.
You know, they haven't missed the beat. Like we know who told us the story. We know which year it happened we know which pillar of the muskie was tied to we know which day the Prophet spoke to him we know which day he missed. We know what food he was presented. This is the beauty of this Deen because it is from there to us heart to heart and book to book.
So third, meeting the prophets of Salaam can ask the mother in the castle mama How are things? And can you ask yourself what's the profit doing?
Like when I I mean I am an education Alhamdulillah a lot of my students sit here you know past and present.
When you talk to an individual in the conversation in the body language in the eye is a secrets that words cannot convey.
So the profits from his demeanor can tell what's happened inside the hidden heart of this man. You know an angry person full of hatred looks different to a person's looking at you and all when splendor.
So third day the prophets of Salaam asked him he repeated because as I told you all good but if you kill me understand my blood is waiting. If you are benevolent and gracious, I know how to be grateful and if you want wealth ask it will be granted so the prophet SAW Selim said release so man I don't want to make you and did it to me you know though I want to kill you know do I want compensation go
I don't know if you can become still number for a second.
Like this is the man you've hated. This is the man you fought inside your head. If I get my hands on you, you know how you talk in your head when you're angry at someone and you're it's talking to you.
This is the man who you've attacked these companions. This is the man you plan to kill all that. And now this man comes feeds you
hosts you even orders milk to be brought to you twice a day and then releases you.
Like it must be perplexing that at least you know and today
The level where you want to shout. So samama left the masjid walked out,
went to near the buffet.
There's an orchard there. And there was a well, so he took water wash themselves clean themselves very well.
And because the sun is hot to dry up pretty quick or not so he can A few minutes later back into the masjid now washed and cleaned.
So Muslims are there at hamdulillah
so he says,
Your face was the most hated face to me.
Allah has made it the most beloved face to me. Your land was the most hated land to me. Allah has made it the most beloved land to me. Your religion was the most hated religion to me. Allah has made it the most beloved religion to me, I swear I shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow a neck Rasulullah I swear that there is none worthy of worship save Allah in your the prophet of God.
It is easy to be kind to kindness. You know if I give you 100 bucks $100 the natural thing to say is thank you. Staff just suck a lot your usual in maybe you'll walk with me outside the door, you know? And if you don't I'll say hello Miskin something is wrong with him you know?
But normal behavior and if your uncle sees you and I'll give you a gift and you don't say thank you he'll go home and tell you this Habibi. What happened? Like no one has taught you enough manners to say Jackalope status. Thank you, you know, because normal requirement in every culture is kindness you will rip that's that's normal.
A bit better than that, is to be kind in a neutral ground.
Like, you know, I haven't done anything good for you. You don't know me. You see me in the street carrying a bag yourself does let me help you. That's just Aquila, you are kind to me without having a you know.
The challenge is to be kind in the face of unkindness.
You know, cause every element every chemical, every cell from the tip of your toes to the top of your head is burning with rage and anger with revenge and hatred. You want retribution. That's normal. But now, what type of heart must you have?
That not only
Have you forgiven, but are being kind and nice as well. And especially and kind and nice. is okay, when you're weak? Because what else are you gonna do? He is tied up in your MOS. Like he's at your mercy, mercy here, given his history of what he's done. This is why he is Rahmatullah. I mean,
do you see mercy to your enemies, and such level of mercy that the mercy kills them the hatred that is in their heart and turns it to love for you?
So So mama became a Sahabi became a Muslim, a follower of the Prophet. And he says,
From now on myself, my person, my sword, and my men are at your disposal, like I am, I am used to command
and then he remembers the wrong he did, because he's killed people from the Muslims. So instead of a prophet, I have killed your men. What do I need to do about that? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let the three Ballykelly own. There is no blame on you today. Islam forgives whatever came before it.
And the beauty of Islam that it gives the opportunity for a fresh start.
You know, it gives it upon Islam in it gives it upon hijra from a you know, and it gives it upon hij
fresh start. So,
so so mama said, or prophet, I was intending to go to Umrah
What should I do about that? So the Prophet said go to camera, but go to camera, on the tradition of prophethood
on the method of Islam, and not
On the method of your tribe, so then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him how to perform the umbra as a Muslim
and he is the first one that has sung the tel via in the harem from the Muslims This is so mama
and the chorus used to say it's similar but they had words of schilke in this so so mama arrived in Makkah
to perform ombre and he sings out at the top of his voice love Bay called La home mela Bay club bakerella Sherry, Kayla Kayla back in Alhambra, one neomed laka well mold luxury kolak when the chorus heard this,
like they know that this is not the normal one. So they burnt with anger cause the Islam that they're fighting and keeping in Medina and now with the singing inside the Haram in their backyard, you know be bought from the Mecca. So the young worked up and some took their souls and the elderly saw a guy this is so mama This is not you know your normal person that has come here there's a whole tribe of Banu hanifa that will come here if you do anything to him. So they shield the swords and went to him and says yes to mama, what is what is happening Have you become confused? This is no I'm Muslim have become Muslim. So they say they bashed him a little bit, you know, cause and enough they
enough self control to keep the swords shielded hollows that says not as you can expect they're still gonna ruffle a biro. So he said men of courage,
I swear to you, Upon my return, not that grain will come to you from that side.
Like, and he blocked the whole a whole side, you know, this is
sanctions from Savannah, you know that nothing's coming. And again,
sanctions started to bite, you know, produce reduced wealth reduced, and usually the weakest suffered the most and sanctions. So the kids and the women, the poor.
the cries eventually reached the Prophet I am being metaphorical meaning the compliance the letters, they sent a letter to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam who the Quraysh his enemies to say, yeah, Mohammed, although we are of different faiths, we are still family now order this friend of yours to remove the sanction because you know, we our kids are dying out of hand.
And again, the chorus of people
you know the story of Bella
you know the story of Mr. You know, the story of somaiya courage.
And the reason the Prophet migrated because they can behind his house to assassinate him the courage did it the same people of Makkah, then they came to attack him and bother and then they came to attack him and ohada and then they came to attack him and the chorus did it.
Now they're begging for mercy from him that listen, our kids are dying out of hunger.
So the prophets Allah La hot and Subhana Allah to give you context, in our time, sanctions were placed on Iraq. 2 million people died and no relief from the sanctions. Yet for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a letter came that our kids are hungry and crying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam older so mama so Mama, I haven't been sent to you know the price kids or food I am Rama toda la and I mean, remove your embargo and sanctions.
Do you see what amatola mean? And
so the ones
my topic that was on the poster at least is one out of cell NACA in rock metal. I mean, the verse says, Listen to the verse and Alhamdulillah I look around this particular element. I will fumble around here. The verse says one, I will sell NACA inla. Rock metal I mean,
a lot of bullets there and say we're out of style NACA Rahmatullah. I mean, he didn't say in we sent you as a mercy to the world.
A lot of belleza says a one out of cell NACA Illa Rahmatullah al Ameen, or prophet we have sent you as nothing else, but a mercy to the worlds like first Allah negates all else. Like there's no other component in your mission.
inla or hematol Delilah mean but you're a mercy to the worlds and Allah sent them not a mercy Nance, not a mercy just to me in you. He is a mercy to the worlds he's a mercy to the worlds. And again as I said at the beginning you see Merce you want to see mercyful look at look at the person in times where he should be retaliating and then see what his response is.
