However, our motto the Allahu and did not embrace Islam until five years later, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first received revelation. During this time, when Mr. radi Allahu Allah when he became aware of the Muslims and the impact they were having on the community in Makkah, he was a staunch enemy against the Muslims. In fact, there were times when he participated in the oppression and persecution of some of the Muslims. Now the day that he became a Muslim was an is an incident

00:01:44--> 00:02:05

for us to ponder over, while Allahu Allah Cooley Shea included that a loss of penalty has ability over everything and that there is no impossibility with a loss or penalty everything is possible so panel law that allows a panel to either changes the hearts of people as quick as you clicking your fingers so panel

one day when Ramadan Khattab radi Allahu, and it is as though that the the last incident to happen with him the straw that broke the camel's back. That was enough. That aroma rhodiola, who at the time had had enough of Islam, had enough of the Muslims and Subhanallah he said, I have had enough of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As he left his home, he left his home with his sword hanging around his neck.

00:02:37--> 00:03:22

As he left his home, he said, I am going to use my sword to kill and strike down Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam. It was the practice of the Arabs, that within the community, that the sword or your weapon, we would not be shown. But it was taken out. Everybody knew that blood was going to be shed. So has their own very tall and powerful individuals walking through Makkah walking in the direction of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It was him who was in one of the houses of the companions, a man who saw this and wanted to quickly defuse the situation. And he said, Yeah, are mortal. And this man's name he his name was named Abdullah. He said, anger has overcome you. But you

00:03:22--> 00:03:31

have lost your mind. Where are you going? And I'm not the only one with his sword swinging. He said I'm going to strike down Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:03:32--> 00:03:41

No, and he said to him, before you go into that direction, would it not be better for you to fix and solve the problems within your own household?

00:03:43--> 00:04:05

Omar was taken back he said, What do you mean by this? He said Have you not heard about the situation of your own sister and her husband? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unaware there his own sister 40 momento suburb, and her husband say the abuse aide, who was one of the 10 promised a paradise had both accepted Islam. He was unaware of this.

00:04:07--> 00:04:31

He said by a law that I will go to their home and I will deal with them first. So he went to the house of his sister, and he banged the door very loudly, and he could hear them humming or reciting something inside. In fact, Hubbard didn't know that radi Allahu anhu was another well known companion was teaching Fatima bentall hottub and her husband how to recite the Quran.

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

Those who are inside in the home Fatima and her husband heard the rumor of the Allahu anhu frantically banging the door and they said hide the parchment of Quran that they were reciting from so then they open the door and remember the Allahu and he entered the home and asked them what were you humming and what were you reciting? And they said we will not doing anything we will not saying anything. And then remember the Allahu Allah He insisted. He said tell me what you have been reading what you are doing.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

I have heard what has been said about you, embracing the religion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They said, Yes, we have embraced the religion of Mohammed salallahu alayhi wasallam. Upon hearing this, and whatever little hobby Allah who and he went to go and strike the husband of his sister, but his sister stepped in front of him, so panela and then when that happened, he smacked her in the face, they both fell to the floor, and blood was on the face of his own sister. When are the Allahu anhu when he saw this, I lost a pinata and placed something in his heart, that he had regret for what he had done.

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

Immediately he called calm.

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

And he said, Let me see what you were reciting.

00:05:47--> 00:05:55

They said, We will give it to you upon the condition that you do not rip it up or destroy it. He said, I will not rip it up, nor will I destroy it.

00:05:56--> 00:06:21

They said to him that you are an impure person, you will have to go away and purify yourself. So remember the Allahu anhu he went away, and he purified himself. And then he was given the parchment, the parchment upon which a year from Surah Taha was on it, and then he began to read it by her morons and aliko coronelli Tasha, and he began reading some from Surah Taha.

00:06:22--> 00:06:31

Allah subhanaw taala plays something in the heart of Omar Abdullah ha pub, or the Allahu, and when he recited these verses, and he said to himself,

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

it isn't For this reason, that people are fighting Mohammed,

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

the reality came to him.

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

He gave the parchment back to his sister.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

And he continued on his journey to the house in which that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in, however, for very different reasons.

00:06:53--> 00:07:36

The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was within the home of one of the companions, maybe 10 or 15 of them. And it was you could hear somebody coming outside and then suddenly there was a knock at the door. One of the companions looked through the hole and said, it is Omar. And he still has his sword around his neck. Hamza radi Allahu anhu he said, O Messenger of Allah. If he comes with his sword, then we will face him with a sword. But he is facing us with something else. Then we will face him with what isn't it whatever is necessary. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, open the door for Omar. Omar harati Allahu anhu. He entered the room. And so a number of companions,

00:07:36--> 00:07:51

the companions, they were there waiting. what was going to happen? He approached the messenger Salallahu early who sent them out their profit in the visa I sell them, helped him with his clothes and said Dr. Omar, what has brought you here?

00:07:52--> 00:08:40

And what are the Allahu anhu quite simply responded by saying a Chateau La ilaha illallah wa Chateau a Naka Rasul Allah, I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that you are the Messenger of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled the companions around or Marathi Allahu and could not hide the delight. They were so happy that Subhana Allah, the greater Omar he has embraced Islam as the obverse radi Allahu anhu he narrates the day that Erma radi Allahu anhu he embraced Islam. That was like a day of victory for us. Subhan Allah, remember the Allahu and he left his home in a state of anger that led him to carry his sword and want to kill the messenger

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:43--> 00:09:29

Moments later not very long later, Allah, Allah Allah had changed what was in his heart, from complete hatred, to complete love for the messenger sallallahu wasallam. This is as we know, as a loss of penalty Allah says in Nicoletta demon, well I can Allah hi Manisha that you do not guide to whom you love, but rather a loss or penalty Allah guides whom He wills. We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made that either under the law or Apple general one of them would be guided to Islam. Whoever was more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala and as we know, Allah, Allah, Allah loved Mr. Malhotra, the Allahu anhu and he embraced Islam. The first thing the Rama radi

00:09:29--> 00:09:35

Allahu anhu did he wanted to do was to make sure that everybody knew about his his Islam.

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

He went to the houses of all the elders and the heads of the Quraysh these same individuals who are persecuting and oppressing the Muslims. It's very difficult for the Muslims to approach these people. However, a lot of the Allahu anhu was not afraid at all. He knocked on their doors. When they open the door or more of the law and would say to them, Omar has embraced Islam. What do you have to say? What do you have to do? They were afraid

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

And they could do nothing. Because there are a lot of the Allahu anhu was such a powerful individual. We take so many blessings and benefits from the stories of Han Allah in the Allah subhanaw taala can guide an individual. Even though that individual has such enmity and hatred towards Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never lost hope in his people, and constantly made for his people, that they would embrace Islam and likewise us as Muslims. We make dua for people that are Lost Planet Allah guides them. We didn't want people to be thrown to the Hellfire, but rather we want Allah Subhana tax to guide them to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala we want them

00:10:37--> 00:11:17

to embrace Islam. Even those people who have so much enmity and hatred towards Islam, we make dua to Allah subhanaw taala we never give up hope. We can never say that this individual is and will always be an enemy towards Islam, we give up on them know, our family members, external family members, whoever that person may be. You are an upright you should have an upright character and follow the noble example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and call people to Islam in the very best way. Because you never know that Allah subhanaw taala could guide that individual at your hands. And you have such a great example. And we know that Erma radi Allahu anhu became the halifa of the

00:11:17--> 00:11:39

Muslims after abubaker Sadek and has a very important role in the expansion of Islam on Earth. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with Omar rhodiola one And may Allah subhanaw taala bless us all brothers and sisters and take great benefit from this particular story. I mean barakallahu li comm was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
