But
that was wonderful Hello, oma kashia for law ob lahoma. What had been that you have played you had it had been for sold our two Robbie was said in a previous ad, also blah, blah about
my beloved mother and most respected elders, mothers and sisters.
So this is the month of Muharram for us in our calendar, and then the Islamic calendar.
And Islamic calendar is known as the HV calendar.
And Hippo is in reference to the migration of the prophets Allah Adi who was sent from Mecca to Medina.
So I will just start with a little description, to create an awareness of what HTML was and in what context it can and then derive some lessons for us so that we can take and benefit from moving forward and shout out to other
sources. So the story goes that Allah has just summoned our prophet to the office of prophethood. For the Mohammed ibn Abdullah became Mohammed or fool Allah.
And Allah, whatever it is that tasked him with the mission, to call people to the worship of the one mighty Lord,
so that our soul can to humankind into the people and make this declaration who would
love law to live to
testify, make the declaration make the proclamation that there is none worthy of worship, save one mighty Allah, and success will be yours.
You see, you've just heard that, and you utter it with relative ease.
Yet you're only able to utter it with relative ease because of the sacrifices that the first generation had to go.
Otherwise, it's a revolutionary statement. Let me give you some context.
So imagine this scene. The Kaaba, is there
360 Gods inside and outside idols surrounded by a sensitive Arab population.
You know what soldiers on their sides and passion riding high and and their devotion to their idols unprecedent unprecedented but they are stories from this era in which a single individuals sacrifice 100 camels or one of their items.
Mike, my parents tell me sometimes you speak harsh.
But trust me, I need to say this bluntly. Like I swear this to you. There is not a person in this audience that has sacrificed 100 camels for all while Forget about it.
Do you know that type of passion commitment devotion love you've got to have to go and get 100 camels and butcher it as a sign of devotion for an item. So loyalty was there for gala tea was their passion was there devotion was there to the other part. And yet Mohammed the most Papa comes with this declaration. La ilaha illallah wa
There is none worthy of worship save the one mighty
to the one that is worshiping this you say this is not worth worshiping on the online is worship worth worshiping. And not only that
don't don't want
to be a wall alley movie. So they said what about our forefathers so Allah said the story of Ibrahim this tell them you and your father's war in manifest era so natural reaction
was abused start the torture started imprisonment started executions that that, you know, the stories, beloved was tortured and Somalia was executed. And our motto was based on the on coals and and others were imprisoned. And people started to my great aunt Doris, who lolly of Goddess solid to ultimate esteem is not allowed to do anything except by the exclusive decree of the heavens and the permission of a lot of polarizer. That this is the
this is Prophethood.
So 13, long years, he bore the brunt of this. And after 13, long years at the peak of the story,
they plan his execution that we will execute him and rid ourselves of this problem.
But it's a tribal system. You see, I don't I don't I don't know if you are familiar with tribal systems is a tribal system.
The rule is you help your brother whether he is right or wrong,
whether he is the oppressor or the oppressed. So the immediate tribe of the Prophet, Banu Hashim would not give up those tools if someone attacked him, they will be fought back. Now no tribe wants to get into an internal fight with banjo Hashem. So what to do.
So they created an alliance, all the other tribes together, each one of us would give forth a warrior, and they would all go to Mohammed together, each one would add him one stat and then the white of the blood will be distributed amongst all of the tribes of mockups that that way, but to Hashem cannot fight us, you know, all the tribes by itself.
So the decision can that we will send the Warriors each some 40, according to some books.
And we would wait for him to come. And then everyone's that once and then.
So as they made the van and they've set it in motion in the Warriors already gibreel comes
Yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed,
your people are planning your execution, Allah commands you to migrate.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in his house. He has a manna trust that people have trusted him with
you know, this one's money and this one's wealth and this one's treasures.
And there's a fascinating point here a lesson for all of us.
They fought him. And at the same time, they couldn't help but trusting.
Like they deposited their wealth and property with him because of the person he was. Yet at the same time there are antagonistic enough towards him to warrant them coming to try to assassinate.
So I want to teach the first lesson here, the ones moving forward into our new year.
In your study, in your conduct, in your work, in your lives, in your friendships, become people that whether you like it or not, they have to rely on you.
I say that either.
In your work, in your study, in your friendship, become people
that others are forced to rely on a way that they like or not just because of the trustworthiness of your nature.
Little things, little things, when you're at work, you're on the boss's clock. Don't go on social media. It doesn't suit
It takes from your conduct,
although it might, but you still on his clock.
They did an accident, they trust the profit. They had no reason not to trust it.
Don't give people reason because of moments of weakness.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
went out to give people's properties back, and then assigned it Ignagni upon him, his cousin, the young man distant, this belongs to that person go give it to him on this day and so on.
And he left this place and went to the house of the
now other worker was anticipating that
you know, the order of migration would come so I better be prepared. So here already purchase a couple of camels strong sturdy creatures have been feeding them for some time, the best grains of maca preparing them and rehearsing with them, so that they can do the long track without a problem 450 kilometers to Madina munawwara
so now that also comes to the house of aboubaker imagine, because you don't imagine Well, you know, that scenarios and I don't say this, because I think the thing the
imagine a society in its entirety, has decided on assassinating you it's not a comfortable moment. You know, if two of your neighbors decide to make your house you will have sleepless nights
you know, who's doing it well.
So if people are they gonna come to us assets requires guts and courage and, you know, bravery and stamina and all the rest of it. So, at this end, that climate over soon goes to the house of Abu Bakar on high alert, and his command, the abbey who made the Abu Bakar vacate the house, empty the house why because I need to share a top secret.
So ago Dr. sighs, our School of Law, this is your own house, that is up fraud, Asia, that is your sister in law, this is your own family. So say what you need to say. So he says Allah has ordered my migration.
So he asks the question, it can also happen to your rasulillah then companionship or professor God like I am the one that will accompany you in sudo su nodded. Our mother Isha says it is the first time she's a young lady at the you know, girl that this time is the first time that I ever saw someone cry out of happiness.
That I get
the exclusive privilege of being the servant of the law school on this journey. And such an immense journey that Omar says with regards to it. I would the life of Omar and the progeny of Omar for a day and night and the day in the life of Abu Bakar in reference to this day and night isn't the day in my life I would swap my life and the life of my family in the courts of law for this one day in one month.
So I will not cover the sense the camels to the guide you know the one who would show them the back waves
of the light ignore I remember the night he was he was Jewish.
So the cameras were sent to them. Abubakar is ready to leave is taken whatever wealth money he has, and they were waiting for the order when to leave. The hospital goes back home.
darkness falls night comes
and the Warriors gather outside the house.
And when they get up
he can see them through the crack of the goal you know 1234
blades drawn waiting.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam tells it in
that yogic sleep in my bed,
take my shower over your head in my bed, pretend to be me.
visualise whoever's in the bed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam means he's waiting to be assassinated. That's a different type of heart. You know, and that is why it is the heart of it. You know, you hear the Battle of Hiva he went and in the olden days to chant before they come out and when warriors just to meet one another. So the warrior on the other side can proud cocky, arrogant on his horse, you know? And he said his verses I am this and this and now it's on how do you want to respond? So he responds with these couplets, just animality some Naomi Hadar up can they evolve that the curry Hillman got up, I am the one whose mind call them ally and when he was a baby, you know,
they say she held him in he gripped on her head. And she was trying to get his hands off and she couldn't so she called him my little lie. And so he says I am the one whose mom called him a liar and he was a kid you know, now as an adult from you look at me, you will get scared.
So the heart of a lion now sleeps on the bed. And I want to take another lesson here because that's important.
Notice that in difficulty and hardship. There's only very few people who will stick around.
So surround yourselves with people who will be there in difficult times.
Surround yourself with people if you need a friend have one that will be there and difficult because the English utterances correct a friend in need is a friend and the
everyone else is just there to have fun.
And the point when you want to be a friend, make sure you can stand the difficult moments of life. Otherwise don't mess with Habibi. Listen.
I just like the fun part and difficulty have someone else around.
second lesson, the lesson
the numbers will disappear because I'm on stage okay. So anyway, next point.
I mean that the pilot sleeps in the bed of the Prophet so nobody
watches through the cracks and then opens it and walks out reciting what john m Bailey add him slept down woman couldn't fit him down for Alicia, you know whom, for whom you will see whom. And we put a barrier in front of them and a barrier behind them blind that they couldn't see. So the scholars of sealer say those who walk through them and as a point, picked up some sand and placed it on each of the hits like this, like I was here.
And there was a person who saw him from afar.
Like what's other person doing? You know, why are these people standing with him putting stamp on it? So they waited? And another point? No one point
you should ask yourself the question, why haven't they jumped in and killed the man?
You see, even them they had a code of honor. The code was
if we jump into a man's house of mind is with his family they might be able to dress or you know not ready for this.
And the Arabs would never let us live down the shame that we jumped into the house of another man whilst he was with his family in his with his women.
So even an animosity have a degree of honor, because that's Noble.
went to the house of Abu Bakr Siddiq. Now Medina is this way.
You with me? Medina is this way, don't assume migrated that one.
But he's going to Medina.
But the aim is to go to Medina. But instead of going that way, he went the opposite direction, some three kilometers
to a mountain which would go up and that's we'll reach the famous case called Avada. So
anyone been to auto show me hands
I went I climbed
two and a half hours I think two hours in a bit.
It's got stays. Now that that stays into it.
But relatively young person, relatively fit person. I got halfway
up the mountain and I looked down and cars look small
and my legs are aching. So I looked off where am I gonna go down? And then I looked up.
Way to go that away you know there was no way up No way. I felt my crying you know the desperation. Who told you to come?
but the bassoon on a bottle of soda
did it? How old?
So at 40 he became a prophet
13 years he was in Makkah 53
what type of shoes
and no stairs. So it's a mountain he has to climb. I'm assuming three to four hours to climb up.
against the advice of my parents. I say
climbing is a vertical thing. You couldn't exercise for four hours on a horizontal.
So three hours walk no three kilometers walk.
Three four hours crying
shoes not our best the best feet of the law school started to bleed.
So Abu Bakar on the line who would help him carry him a little bit.
So here's my next lesson for you for the start of our new year.
Do once the or aspire to become fit and healthy.
Your Prophet sallallahu wasallam was fit and healthy
and I don't want the sisters to think yes brothers be fit and healthy.
Muslim women are the same
established from the seal of the heart of the man who by consensus is older than the muscle
used to go to hell with him when he was 40
Trust me climbing the rocky rock hot mountain difficult challenge to walk from Makkah to Florida technical challenge but she could she couldn't go
as in there his health and his fitness
but sadly in our times this one or two exercises we're very good at you want to see it. It goes like this.
A lot of practice
but do one is a strong Muslim is better than a weak one a healthy mind is in a healthy body and live fuller lives spend allocate time in your busy days for your own physical well being. This is an Amana Allah gave you it is your duty to keep it at its best operating system is your life.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when downs up to water, so
and he would wipe it for three days
for three days. And the story is Abu Bakar son and servant would you know sneak and bring food and a news and then they usually use sheep to cover their tracks.
And then they end that cave and amazing thing happened.
So the next day
you know the people can waited for the doors open and Mohammed was not there other than the one who walked out.
So they rush to the house of knowing that probably be there. They asked, no, they even slept, the daughter of a robot Casa de flotilla.
And from there, they put 200 camels as reward on them, but whoever captures them all dead or alive 200 camels like imagine 200 Honda's not even Mercedes. You understand it's, it's a big deal.
So every man and his dog forgive the statement is looking for more hammers.
And I want to mention because the sheriff did the miracles of the firearm, so I want to mention some, otherwise, I will feel left out, you know, I didn't do any miracles.
So he went out.
And there is
unify the folders are very different.
you see that title, I don't know how to describe this, but you kind of enter at this level, like the mouth of the kindness here, you enter your PIN, keep your head down. And then once you go, there's a little table, like a rock table, you climb on that, and you can sit on that, am I making sense, so that you enter from the table to sit on that table, and then it's got the opening from the back, but at the top. So if someone looks down, they can see you from the top and down the bottom samples, they hit up above the table.
There we can see on top of the table. And so Pamela, it's amazing, you know, amazing.
The chef said something beautiful, he goes, No verse of the Quran is accidental. And our belief is most of because a lot of is the inefficiency of logistics, everything perfectly for time for his profit.
Because if it was a normal case, you could see as soon as they can, but he's put that little table in there. So that you have to put your head down, make that extra little bit of effort to see if they start Monday.
So they can attract us found them found the footprints at the base of the cave at the base of the mountain.
And so the appearance is amazing. So the tracker looked at the footprints. It goes as with regards to this one, this is the son of hafa you know, move up kind of number four, this is from that one.
And this is what footprint is like your companion in Makkah and reference to
making a deal I make with you. And when it gets this right.
I'll give you 50 Australian dollars.
Serious whoever gets this right. And this is my, the one like your companion and maca.
I'll help you out
whose footprint is in Makkah.
So this footprint is what the footprint in America. And this is confirmed by the Hadith of the Prophet that the closest in resemblance to my father Ibrahim is me.
But even at the footprint level similar
so they climbed up, how many hours
three to four hours climb.
And the only thing remaining is this cave in like Why have you climbed four hours if you know when to look inside the cave. So they come to the mouth of the cave.
I one of them. One narration goes up to the top to answer the call of major goes behind the cave. So if he's there, if he looks down, he will see them. The ones that the front and they put their heads up. They can see them you know between a rock and a hard place. This is
so you would expect them to be nervous, worried, you know, but the faith in a lot of bluster. And I was
nervous so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that isn't enough. Amanda Don't be worried Abubakar is with us for answers Fannie Mae and give the whole Murphy
A lot of India is locked up he has an in number hermana I will give one more and then I will I will throw my next lesson.
So, this has finished our save them from here and there is another story about this the width of the anchor bolt and the eggs of the dubs but
the evidence is not established as
the actual chain of narrations
that does not involve a solid all the way up.
So then he comes out goes towards
Medina after the search has subsided Three days later
now on the way news has gone far and wide whoever catches more hammer than his companion to hunt so every Arab now is looking for Mohammed in Abu Bakar and
their guides so news can to try towards Mark towards direction of Medina
that this man is looking for so one of the shepherds local people that have gone come back to the tribe and save lives I saw a few people talking I might be the one who looking for
so I mixed them is a person
so on top if nomadic Soraka nomadic Soraka heard what this person is narrating that I saw because now I just want to call on tribes, nothing to worry about. And then the next quickly went to the server is good. My voice and my weapon ready. Because 200 camels you're not going to give it up to the other person. Yes. Because no, no, that's our own tribesmen but he knows that this is a
lottery. So took his horse, took the weapon, rush towards that direction, saw them from afar, takes his weapon out, runs and abubaker sees him running, you know, galloping towards them.
So the lamb looked and
turns and makes up, surprise me he's even in the way you choose. So a lot of places that the lips legs of the horse into the ground, and the man fell off the horse.
So he got up and he said, you know,
tries to pull his horse out.
And in one of the narrations is ammo hammer.com with no harm prior to your vote to release me from this, so Mohammed's awesome. So he came back out, got up again, you know, the dollar signs went in his eyes again, went again. And the profit made the draw again, although suffice me is evil in the way you choose this time the horsemen deeper.
And now he knows and as he got up this time, there was a whirlwind that caught him and he said, I realized that the man is out of bounds I'm not supposed to touch him. So the same one that has come to kill him now comes to him. He says, Give me a certificate to say I am safe.
I promise me safe.
So the Prophet tells I'm not right for him.
So he says from Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah Salafi, nomadic is under is guaranteed safety from Allah, His Messenger.
So Soraka said, you know, there was 200 camels, I could have got 200 camels that when novels go sauce, right, some financial
from us, salt. Those who saw said I don't care sell me a Tesla. I promise you the wristbands of Tesla.
So it was the Emperor
because yes, the wristbands on the Emperor it was right.
So I'm abroad that gave it to sew up. So after went
the process Island reached Medina, Islam established
that will soon passes away the parchment goes sarafa goes to a worker your prophet gave me this promissory note that he promised me the wristbands the bangles of this
sovereign worker passed away on his at his death he gave the parchment dorma that salata has been promised the you know, wristbands with the bangles if you live off
of Tesla of the end
So in the time of Armada upon the land of the Emperor was conquered.
And his treasures were open. And his wristbands were brought to Medina and given as part of the rest of the trophies to the Muslims and to Omar and almost dead What is this, they said, this is the response of Chris Rock, because work was.
So they caused a lot of old man now you know, and he entered, and he was here were these, and testified that the prophet of God spoke the truth.
So he picked it up crying, so the rule of law, so the rule of law, so the ones a couple of lessons,
in young sort of common law,
if a law should help you, nothing will overcome.
So in all affairs of life, keep Allah in your corner on your side.
You know, in your protection, through your good deeds, and through your good belief, and through your personal one will.
And so long as Allah is with you, I tell my students I say ride your horse as you want, nothing will happen.
But Allah turns against you There's nothing in the heavens above for the earth beneath you that can save you.
So they can ask to him to the brink of the cave, the Quran, the man took up like chased them and they call them touch the hair on his head and before time of this they burnt Ibrahim, chuck them in the fire and Ibrahim's here wasn't even but you understand that there's a lot of what is with you, nothing can overcome.
Two more lessons and I will end with this one. I'll just take the lessons normal stories and I'll try
another lesson important lesson.
Notes notice that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam tried the Dow for 13 long years in Makkah and didn't give up on it. learn a lesson from this. And the challenges that you pursue in life Don't give up quickly.
You know, you're trying to understand the concept you try it, I have a student he wanted to be a half build, you know, try it for one day didn't finish the whole curves in one day, too much.
Personally, be relentless. Keep going pursue it as Allah has written it for you at one open.
So we are not a nation that gives up quickly. Having said that, no, are we a foolish nation to keep going when we know that there is no end to this? Important point. So there came a time when the lawsuits were a lot of what I was awarded the lawsuit that market is saturated, you're better off in Medina.
So know when to
change tactics when to change location, when to change business, when to change the degree when to do you understand me know when to stop pursuing. And at times, it might even be a relationship.
Like certain times things become toxic enough that there's enough toxicity for the locality because of you. So follow that work this time. You know, I mean, just the toxic for kids.
In you understand, I don't like to be too Frank on these matters. But know when to throw in the towel find greener pastures and when to move on or find another talent or do a work on other business. This didn't work. I think the definition of stupidity by Einstein was to keep repeating the same thing and expecting different results.
So I think I think that's an important lesson to take from all of this. And the last 1am I will I will end with this business of Allah Katana
is have courage.
And all the states of this story, courage is the real theme that goes through. And a lot of times you're stuck in a situation because of your lack of courage. You know, you're stuck in an ugly career that you don't like because you don't have the courage to go and pursue your dreams. You're stuck in a degree that your parents chose for you and you have no talent for because you didn't have the courage to go and chase your dreams.
So have the courage to
chase your dreams and not be afraid driven by a fear of failure because that's, that's the ability thing that's very limiting, you know, I will not do this because in case I fail not try this business in case of not, you know, getting married in case it fails not do this. All of these are things that are holding you back.
And you're required to have enough courage to climb over these hurdles and face your demons and be able to conquer them and go to somewhere better, much better to have tried and failed than to have failed to try.
So for your time and patience, I think you might the one above the heavens guide and God you
