bla Smilla hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was softly Jemaine a Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, my dear brothers and sisters, after three years completed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was then commanded by Allah subhanaw taala, to openly call to Islam. So there was the period where there was the dead out of Syria, there was the quiet call amongst his own family and closest friends. Then Allah subhanaw taala revealed a verse where Allah Jalla Allah says, When do triage erotical, aka Robin, and then warn your closest members of your family and this is a verse, which is mentioned in Surah Assura, in verse 214, when the Prophet
salallahu Alaihe Salam received this verse, he immediately went to the people of Makkah, and he climbed a mountain mount suffer. And then he addressed all of the people of Makkah. He didn't just address his own tribe or his own people or his own friends, but rather the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam addressed everybody so everybody would hear him, bearing in mind that everybody was going to hear him. He specifically addressed his own his own family and his own closest tribes. And so the Prophet sallallahu irisin first said, Yeah, foul tema to binter Mohammed. Oh Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what are the Allahu Anhu and then he addressed his tribe, year
bunny, Abdul Muttalib Yeah, Benny Hashem, He dressed all of his tribes and all of his closest people. And then he said to them, ask me from whatever you like from my own money, whatever I possess what I have, you can ask me for that. However, in the Hereafter, I'm Nicola come shader, that I have no hands, I have no control, what is going to happen after we all die. So here the Prophet sallallahu, Ellison made a differentiation about what he was able to do to help them and this worldly life, but then the hereafter everybody would be responsible for their own actions. And there are many narrations, which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, addressed his people and these
tribes. When he did this Elisa to salaam, one of the main people of the creation of the chieftains whose name was Abu Lahab. He came there and he listened to him. He listened to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Ali herbage termina Have you caused us to come together because of what this what you are saying here? Because what did the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam say to them? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned them in Nila communal heels, that I am to you a warner and save yourselves from a punishment. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know in the Quran was an aviator that he was a warner. But also he was a MOBA. Sure that he
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also a bringer of glad tidings. And this is a message that we find in the Quran where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one who warned people about the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala and also to bring the glad tidings and the reward of Allah subhanaw taala, which ultimately inshallah to Allah for all of us is an agenda. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make us phone from all the inhabitants of Elgin Allahu Amin. So after Abdullah have heard this, he said, You have only gathered for this bearing in mind also, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if I was to warn you about an army that was behind this mountain,
that they were going to come and attack you, would you believe me? What did they reply? They replied, we have not heard anything about you except good. So the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam established a proof that he was a truthful person, and that nothing that they knew from him was lies or so on and so forth. So the Hoja, all the proof was established, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered the message to them, then if they were to deny the message, then they are the ones who rejected the message, not the individual. And this is a very important point, that as long as an individual upholds good character, upholds the truth and is trustworthy, that it is not
you that they deny, or that they won't listen to, rather, it is the message that they are denying. And this is something that Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, for anomala you can the budak that they are not denying you or calling you a lie, in essence, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, but it is the the rejection of singling out Allah subhanaw taala in worship, that they are rejection and rejecting so that you don't take it personally. And this is something which the day or the call to Islam
needs to be patient with and understand that at times when you deliver the message to people, that it is not necessarily that you should take it personally. Or you should take it that does mean that they are denying, and even if they say things against you, and we know that they said many things against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they called him a magician. They called him a fortune.
teller, decoding the code on all of these things, but they knew that these particular names were not really applicable to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even Allah subhanaw taala revealed, yet revealed versus telling the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to be patient for us to be able to Allah Maya Kowloon, be patient about what they say about you. Well, her daughter whom had our own Jamila and also avoid them in a very beautiful way. So even when the Quraysh they said things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah, Allah gave comfort, and told the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam how to behave in front of such behavior. When Allah subhanaw taala
sets in the many verses and one of them is first bit of sovereign Janila that oh Prophet sallallahu Sallam Be patient and show a beautiful patients. And also Allah subhanaw taala says first before Allah Maya Kowloon, that be patient about that what they say about you have Judo homage around Janila and stay away from them in a beautiful way. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received direct guidance in how to deal with such people who may say bad things about you and attack you personally. And likewise as Muslims we should behave in a similar manner. As we know Allah Allah, this is at the heart of the human journey he Lunokhod who said, the when the ignorant people
that address you in a foul, or evil manner, would you respond to them you say SLM, you say you respond to them in a manner that is befitting to them? So Allah Allah, Allah, Allah revealed verses to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling him how to behave and how to react in such situations. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam quickly recapping, he was an obvious that he was one who warned people about the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala, warning those who are closest to him first, although he was addressing everybody as well on the amount of suffer, and he was also a bringer of glad tidings that he SallAllahu Sallam informed them about the pleasures and
the rewards that Allah subhanaw taala would give to those who followed and obeyed Allah Jalla wa Ala. Now, we also understand that that what goes through or according to Islam goes through a number of different stages, there was a stage where it was required by the prophets lie Selim to remain quiet and deliver it to his own people. And then the next stage was to take it to another level. And that is to engage everybody in the call to Islam. Similarly, as Muslims, we need to understand our environment and our communities. And when it is necessary to speak to individuals, when it is necessary to speak on a larger platform, and when it is necessary for us to speak to people maybe on
social media, and so on and so forth. A person who has little experience and maybe is unable to articulate or have the eloquence in delivering the message of Islam correctly, then wants to jump in front of everybody, maybe 1000s if not millions of people and deliver Islam in a way which they may be attacked, and then they respond in a bit in a bad way showing no patients what form or what kind of picture of Islam are you showing people, that person hasn't gone on a journey in strengthening themselves string thing there, Amen. Now bear in mind, this important is a very, very important point here. This important point I want to mention here Inshallah, to Allah is that depending on the
level of your iman, based upon that or equal to that should be the output of your actions. We know that Allah subhanaw taala does not overburden the soul with regards to the expectations of that individual, Allah, Allah, Allah says in the Quran, Leah you can live for long enough son in was that Allah subhanaw taala will never ever bow overburden the soul with what is expected from them. So if a person has newly embraced Islam, or has newly begun their journey, in terms of seeking knowledge, Allah Allahu Allah will only expect certain things from you. No one is expecting you to change the world. Nobody is expecting you to do do beyond your capabilities, you should not feel as that you
have a small part and that you your impact is very small. Once you start in a very small place, like your muscles, when you go to the gym, you start maybe having very weak muscles, but over a period of time you build them up, nobody's going to ask you to stop picking up you know, dumbbells which are 50 kilograms each and one in each hand. No one expects that of you, but you build up towards that. Similarly in terms of Dawa, you build yourself up slowly, and
increasing your knowledge slowly with the correct knowledge following how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give to our to his people, and depending on the situation and the environment that you are in knowing your people. These are extremely important factors for us to understand, in having given down to the people to ensure but even later I learned we don't become people who fail in the Dawa. The message of Islam is the most beautiful message will Allah Hill Hamed and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strived and struggled with his people for many, many years. In fact, as we all know that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam left MCC after 13 years, and only a few
people embraced Islam had to leave his hometown, how to leave the place that he was brought up where his family was had to leave them.
Even though he was the greatest of messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to go and live in a different city and remain there for another eight years. So for more than 20 years, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his people of Makkah, they rejected him. Only after that did the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam have the ability by Allah Jalla Allah's permission to return to Makkah to free Mecca from polytheism and Alhamdulillah. We are able now to go to market as free from polytheism by the success of Allah subhanaw taala by the success that was given by Allah subhanaw taala to our beloved in Ibiza, la Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam. The final matter I want to
mention, which is a great benefit, in fact, is a great mortgages. It is a great miracle. And that is that when Abu Lahab as we mentioned at the beginning of this particular HELOC, or this particular program, we mentioned that Abu Lahab was one of those people whose most staunch against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and refused Islam and refused to follow the Prophet sallallahu he was, in fact he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turban look like Woe to you. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah revealed Surah to lab in this particular verse of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala explains that Abu Lahab would be from the people of Jahannam that this individual would be from the
people of the Hellfire. And the more injure is marches. The miracle is here that Abu Lahab lived for a number of years even know that there's a it informed everybody that you were gonna go to the hellfire. If the person wanted to debunk the Quran, or to go against the message of the Quran, all he had to say was meant to be here soon. I believe in Allah and His messenger. But Allah subhanaw taala knew by his cuddled by his wisdom that this individual would never believe. And as we know, this individual he died upon a disbelief and he is to be from the inhabitants of the Hellfire. This is the miraculous nature of the Quran, which is so rich in terms of miracles and benefits. May Allah
subhanaw taala protect us all BarakAllahu li como SallAllahu wasallam Mubarak anatomia Muhammad while early he was of the age of nine was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
