bla Mismaloya when hamdulillah was salat wa salam ala Rasulillah Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Mikey brothers and sisters, when a person enters Ali Salam, we all know the great step that they have taken the great reward that in Charlottetown and they will receive, we may also be aware that all the previous sins that they have committed, will be forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala if they remain upright, now, there are other acts of a burden other acts of worship, that if a person does that, that they will have the same reward, inshallah to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then sound Hadith, that a person who enters into Islam removes the sins that
came before it. And a person who performs a hedge Allah to migrate from one land to the other for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala will also have their previous sins forgiven. So it is a great reward, not only for person to embrace Islam, but a person to make Hijra. Now during the life of Rasulullah, salallahu Alaihe Salam, we are all aware that the Muslims and the prophets of Eisah lemon Abu Bakr, they went on the journey and they left Medina and they went old and they left Makarova and they went all the way to Medina to live. However, there is another hedgerow and there was another migration that occurred before this. In fact, there are two and there's these two
hingeless Inshallah, to Allah that I want to focus on. Now, after five years, the revelation had begun. The Muslims were facing great difficulties, the Muslims were secluding themselves learning from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the house of an outcome, even a will outcome. However, the Muslims were still facing persecution and oppression. To the extent that some of them some of the Muslims were facing so many difficulties and trials, that they were unable to practice their Deen in a way that was acceptable to Allah Subhana Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt very sorry for his companions. Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala allowed that Abu Talib
would be there as a protector for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam because they were part of Banu Hashim. And apartheid was seen as one of the chieftains one of the main people, so they couldn't do anything really physical to the Prophet alayhi wasallam. But there were other companions who did not have this protection. Therefore, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to these companions, not many of them, that those who have you had the ability to do so. Then let them make the Hijra the migration to a place called Al hamartia, which in modern day terms now is Ethiopia, or Abyssinia at that time.
The Prophet said some said, if you go there, you will find a king who will not oppress anyone who stays with them. Here a number of the companions from them Earth might have been a fan and his wife Rocha, the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, with murder with them of their own, Abdurrahman, Abner off and other famous companions as Joe Biden. awam. Most of you know Amaya, they made this Hydra all the way to Habesha.
When they left Makkah, they arrived at the port where ships were taking people to and fro these were T Jarrah ships where people used to do trade trading ships Alhamdulillah the Muslims who would left MCC not because they wanted to, but they had to, they wanted to save and protect the dean. When they reached the the port there. There were some people who took them Alhamdulillah all the way to Abyssinia, they took them to Hampshire, where they were able to stay with the king and Najafi who at the time was a Christian.
Then after a short while, they heard that things had somewhat simmered in Mecca, and that it was okay for them to return. The moment that they heard that, that they returned to Makkah only to find that the situation was still very, very difficult for the Muslims. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to them,
that they should go back to Hampshire and should remain there until the situation in Makkah, became more of a safe place for the majority owner. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them and they were at three men, and 18 of the Sahaba yet female companions, they made this blessed journey again, back to Al Habersham. Now when they reached the news reached the Quraysh the chieftains the policies, the most raccoon, and they were extremely unhappy that their own people who they saw as their own people had escaped and left MCC and we're now residing and living in Habersham. So they sent to the mysteries to a Najafi to convince him to send the Muslims back to to Makkah. from them
was Ahmed Abdullah house, were Abdullah even other area and as we know these two individuals were very skilled, highly skilled individuals in debating and speaking to people. So they sent these two emissaries who are well known people from the McCanns. Now when they
to individuals, they went to Nigeria, she went to have Russia. They didn't just go alone. But they went there with many gifts, maybe to, you know, to, if you'd like to bribe and Najafi to send the Muslims back, however, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then Nigeria, she was a medic, lovely Masada that he would not oppress anybody. So when they were in the courtyard, the Muslims on one side, and I'm Reverend house and his companion and Nigeria, she said to both sides, put forth your case and I will listen to you both. So I'm living with us who later London he he's a Muslim. And as we know, he's a very famous son as well, Abdullah, number one US or the law and
Houma. He put forth the case that these people had caused lots of disruption in Makkah, where it caused a separation between the father and the son and the mother and the daughter. And the tribes were arguing that these people were us have assumed that these were very bad people and that they should be returned to MCC immediately. And Nigeria, she heard very colored listened very carefully to what the McCanns that had the policies that they said then and the Joshi spoke to the Muslims and said, Please put forth your case. The Muslims at that time chose Jafar ibn Abi Taalib, Radi Allahu anhu, to speak on behalf of the Muslims. And he spoke with one of the most eloquent and the most
beautiful speeches in the history of Islam. Allah subhanaw taala blessed him gave him success at this time to say the most beautiful things. And he explained the position of who the Muslims were, when he said that we were a people of Coleman Jay Lee, we were an ignorant people who used to worship idols. And we used to consume carrier misters, consumed dead flesh. And we used to be awful to our neighbors, and we wouldn't hold up the ties of kinship, and all the practices that they used to be involved in. Now, what do they do? They they worship Allah subhanaw taala, and that they uphold the bonds of kinship, and they distribute charity, and they look after the poor, and they do
not discriminate, and they have no of these issues. So he showed the very black and white side of what they were upon once. And now what Muhammad Sallallahu ala was selling his status amongst his people, what they were commanded with. And if you remember that a New Jersey was a Christian at this particular time and Niger, she was a Christian. And when he heard the message of the Muslims, he realized that this was a very, very close message to what he believed in, there wasn't very much of a difference. And upon hearing this, he said, I will give you sanctity to stay in habitat for as long as you want to stay here. So the policies from Makkah, they returned with nothing, and Al
Hamdulillah, Allah subhanaw taala granted the Muslims to have peace and sanctity to practice their religion in Habesha. Now, there's a number of important points I want to focus on. But isn't it later either concerning this very important hydrilla, or migration, that the Muslims that they took in the after five years, so the Prophet said, have received revelation in the cave of Hera. Then five years later, in this very short time, the Muslims were going through a very, very difficult time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam allowed them to practice their religion somewhere else. And as Muslims, we are permitted to do this as well, that if a person is facing great difficulties, that
they are unable to perform the very fundamentals of their religion, then they are required to go somewhere else, so that they are able to practice their religion freely, and to have peace and security for themselves is a shot is a condition that that person has to go to the land of the Muslims, it is not a condition. However, no doubt, it would be better to go to a Muslim land. So that you can, you can have a van and they were masajid. And everybody's on the same page in practicing Islam. However, if a person has the opportunity to go to a land, which primarily is not a Muslim land, but gives you the rights gives you Haku to practice your Islam, it is permitted by the
ultimate in understanding these situations and the command of the Prophet. So, I said to go to a land of the non Muslims to practice your religion freely, if you have the right to, to do that, which also leads on to if a Muslim needs help from person from another faith, then they are able to do that as permitted to seek help when the Muslims when they got on the ship for the trade ship from the Arabian Peninsula or across New Hampshire, they will not Muslims. This permission is permitted to seek help from them not a problem. And when the Muslims they went in front of a Najafi and sort of help from him sought peace and security in his land that was also given to him. And it's
important for us as Muslims to realize these situations these important points and not to make life difficult for ourselves and not to restrict what Allah subhanaw taala has permitted for us and not to restrict that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed for us remember these individuals? They saw the practicing of their Deen more important than staying in their home city where they
had their families where they had their wealth. But the establishment of their Deen was the priority. And because that was the priority, they felt it was incumbent upon themselves or necessary to go to another land and to practice Islam there. Remember that not all Muslims made this particular Hijra. Rather lots of the weak Muslims who were who didn't have much protection from other tribes who weren't, who didn't have much protection from many different points of view, they were permitted and actually made this hedgerow to Habersham also we want to mention that the advice or what a Jaffa Jaffa gonna be talking about the Allah and when he spoke to in the Joshi, the manner
that he spoke to and Najafi and as we know later on, that ANA Joshi had SlMs that he became a Muslim Radi Allahu Anhu and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed the funeral prayer when Niger she passed away or the Allahu Anhu. But the message of Jaffa Ibn Abu Talib and I would recommend all of my dear brother and sisters to go and find this particular speech and take as much benefit as you can, you will find that Jennifer, the Lionel, he focused on the foundations of the religion. He didn't go into the specifics about trying to convince people about this as why Muslim does this aspect of his religion, he focused on a toe heat, he focused on the Oneness of Allah
subhanaw taala. And how also Islam differs from the practices that they were one once upon a time involved in. Not that this is what we do, this is what we do. He explained clearly we used to do these things. And Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala chose a man from amongst us, Mohamed Salah Salem, whose name was known whose tribe and where he came from was known, and we followed him and this is what He commanded us with. And similarly, when we are given the hour, we should focus on these issues focus on the foundations of their religion, and maybe at times compare what a person may be doing other than an Islam and how Allah's pantallas guided us to this beautiful religion. May
Allah subhanaw taala keep us steadfast Bartok Allahu wa salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Allah
