bla Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, that is a moment I want to discuss and go through in shallow time is a very important motive. A very important time during the Sierra, or the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. About five years had passed since the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first received revelation, and that until now, only a few had embraced Islam, and the Muslims were facing a great number of difficulties and trials from the polytheists of the quotation mark. On one occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very close to the

00:00:52--> 00:01:35

Kaaba. And again, Abu Jamal, whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam named the third round of this particular arm of this nation. Again, he was mocking and making fun of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. On this occasion, this particular individual whose name was Hamza, even Abdulmutallab, he entered into the Sangha or the area of the Kava. He in fact was the uncle of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was also suckled by the same witness as they were they were like brothers through the same wetness. Now Hamza, or the Allahu Anhu was a very famous warrior, a very famous and powerful individual known in MCC that you heard his name that people

00:01:35--> 00:02:03

would pay attention, and that he would only say good things about Hamza Radi Allahu Anhu. Until this time, he had not accepted Islam, because he was an individual spent a lot of his time actually outside of Makkah as a hunter. However, Abu Jamal who was making fun of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and mocking him, the Prophet sallahu wa salam, his response was not to respond to or not even to look at Abu Jahan, the one of the servants of the people of

00:02:04--> 00:02:49

Abuja and went to Hamza and said, This is what is being said about your nephew. Now, even though that he wasn't a Muslim, he still had this affiliation with the tribe with the family member. So Hamza Radi Allahu Anhu. He went immediately to the area where the commotion was happening. And he said who had said something against his nephew? And they said Abuja hola said this. So Hamza Radi Allahu Anhu. He went, walked up to Abuja into his face and said, What do you say to me, as I am also a follower of my nephew Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I am upon his religion. What do you say to this? Buddha he was taken aback he didn't want he couldn't do anything, couldn't say anything. So

00:02:49--> 00:03:29

he walked away, shamefully walked away, because this was Hamza. What can you say to Hamza? Not the Allahu, and this statement of Hamza at this particular time, was it said upon an acknowledge many of the elders say, No, it wasn't. This was rather a statement in siding with his nephew the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. However, shortly after, he went to his nephew Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam explained to Hamza what Islam was, and immediately Al Hamdulillah Hamza Radi Allahu anhu, continued and embraced the statement that he had made. It is very important for us here to, to think about what actually happened here. And that

00:03:29--> 00:04:05

is an individual who wanted to stand up for his own family member to stand up for the truth. And this is not there's nothing wrong with this. A person might say, Well, this has to do with tribe, a tribalistic kind of behavior and so on and so forth. On the contrary, this led this individual to embracing Islam. So we shouldn't judge these situations because we do not know what happens at the beginning. How it will end. Yes, we can see this happening at the beginning. But Allah subhanaw taala is the best of Panis and sometimes Allah Allah I tend to as he tells us, that there is a matter which you do not like what I said, and tecra Hoshi and that is something that you don't like,

00:04:05--> 00:04:47

we had Allahu fi Chiron coherer and that Allah subhanaw taala will bring a lot of good in that particular situation. So this was the Islam of Hamza, even up to the Muttalib. And this was something very grateful to Muslims. They say about three or four days later, or at least a very short time later, there was the Islam of another powerful individual, another well known individual in Makkah, and this was a rumor mill hubub or the Allahu Han. It should be noted that Umar Radi Allahu Han, before he embraced Islam, and both Hamza and also Omar Radi Allahu Anhu Ummah, that they embraced Islam in the fifth year after the revelation had come to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

alayhi wa sallam, he was an individual who was very staunch against the Muslims, and participated at times in actually harming the Muslims. Now the story of Romulus Islam is a well known story and it

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

is a has different rewire to different narrations and different approaches. Nonetheless, we know that and what are the Allahu the tea on one occasion wanted to kill Subhanallah killed the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he came and he took his sword out walking through Makkah, until he heard news about his family about his sister who embraced Islam. And when he went to see his sister, he read a yachtie read verses from as they say, Surah to PA.

00:05:28--> 00:06:16

Here we can think about the great effect of the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Here we find an individual who left his home, to fulfill an objective and that is to take the life of another individual Subhanallah and on the same occasion, on the same day in the same very few minutes, only to come in contact with the verses of Allah subhanaw taala then Allah, Allah, Allah change the heart of that individual in a moment could for your goon be. And it is, for this reason, as a Muslim, we never give up. We never despair about the Islam of any individual. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to make dua, O Allah, whoever is more beloved to you, Abuja hell, or Amara pub, guide

00:06:16--> 00:06:58

them to Islam, these two individuals Abuja Hill, whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said was the fear out of this OMA and Omar Abdullah pub, or the Allahu Anhu who is the harm the Muslims the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made specific to our for these people. Oh Allah God, the Most Beloved to you. Subhanallah never despaired, never gave up on teaching and delivering Islam to every single individual, whoever they were. And so often we find ourselves that an individual who may have done something against Islam, or said something against Islam, and we are very quick to fall into cursing and saying, May Allah give that individual this and that this was not the way of Rasulullah

00:06:58--> 00:07:34

sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yes, there were certain individuals whom the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam knew by Allah subhanaw taala His revelation that they were deserving of punishment, and that they would be from the inhabitants of the hellfire and in turn made against these individuals. But there were other people whom Allah subhanaw taala, whom the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam wanted higher for, wanted good for, and as we know that Allah subhanaw taala answered the doer of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam concerning or medicinal herb Radi Allahu Anhu embraced Islam and Al Hamdulillah this was as Abdullah bin Massoud Radi Allahu, and he said, In later years, we are still

00:07:34--> 00:08:16

honored. This is still a victory for us the fact that both Hamza and Omar Radi Allahu anhu, that they embraced Islam. In the following days when they, when the Islam was known amongst the people, the Muslims straight away, felt stronger, more powerful. It was easier for them to show themselves that they were muslims within the community because both Roma and both Hamza had embraced Islam. They had people on their side whom were known as powerful individuals. And this was a great blessing. This was a great new hammer from Allah subhanaw taala for the Muslims. At this particular time, Roma being Roma rhodiola, who wasn't a person to shy away from his Islam. He needed to be he

00:08:16--> 00:08:45

went to the houses of all of the chieftains in Makkah, and he went to the house of Abuja, Hill, Abuja. He opens the door, and he welcomes Yamato hubba Oh, welcome, Omar, who is from the relations from another tribe. On top. He said, I have come here to inform you to let you know that I have believed in Allah subhanaw taala and I am a follower of Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam, I am a Muslim. What do you say?

00:08:46--> 00:09:28

Upon this Abuja who could not believe and close the door in the face of Ermitage ricotta, not the Allah one or more of the Allahu Anhu then went to all the other chested chieftains in Makkah and told them all that now I am a Muslim, if anyone has any business wants to discuss anything with me marhaba you are welcome to speak with me. He was very open and He's declaring of Islam was very proud of the newcomer, that Allah subhanaw taala gave him as I mentioned, up delivered Mr. O'Donnell the Allahu Allah, that he saw this as a great, a great blessing that Allah subhanaw taala gave the Muslims and they in turn been pursued, given the power to the people around in Makkah.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

So the following benefits I want to just remind ourselves of in this very important time in the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is that the Islam of herbal Tabata, the Allahu Anhu first and foremost being from Allah subhanaw taala but through the reason being, that he listened to the verses of the Quran, the book of Allah subhanaw taala and for many of us, that sometimes we may not see the great importance that the Quran can play in the rules in the

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

In our lives, and what effect that it can have here you have an individual who set out to actually take the life of another person. And subhanAllah upon hearing the verses of the book of Allah subhanaw taala his mind, the way he was thinking, when he was upon 180 degree turn when the other way, only to go to the house of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and declare his Islam. Upon knocking on that door, the Sahaba were afraid. I eat meaning Ramadan alone had had heard the verses. The other Muslims were unaware of what had happened and Irma or the Allah knocking on the door of Dar Al Arcam, wanting to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who made the statement Hamza

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

about the Allah who I know who said that also Allah until other companions, if he has come here with something to cause trouble, then we will return what he gives us. This was the strength that Allah subhanaw taala gave the Muslims through Hemsedal the Allahu Anhu and then if he has come here with something good, then he is welcome. And as we know that Omar ibn Khattab Radi Allahu Anhu. When he came into the house of doddle autumn, he stood there in front of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he declared his al Islam. After this, the Muslims saw a distinct change in how they will go into practice the Islam Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala honored them in the Islam of these two

00:11:24--> 00:11:48

individuals. Islam did not gain anything. Islam did not need the Islam of these individuals. Similarly now, if there are individuals who want to embrace Islam, Islam is not in need of those people. Rather, mankind humankind is in need of Al Islam. Another great benefit we take from the Islam of both Omar and Hamza with Rama

00:11:49--> 00:12:27

with a specific reference to a model the alignment is the importance of making dua for people to embrace Islam as Muslims and we see the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. Salam is to show Islam to people to make dua for people. In fact, the Prophet alayhi salam made dua for specific individuals and similarly, we should make dua for specific individuals. And not too long ago actually, there were certain individuals who were part of a movement in trying to humiliate and dishonor the Prophet Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam, they're involved in cartoons and picture writing and things like that. One of those individuals who was from Europe, he became a Muslim

00:12:28--> 00:13:01

Subhanallah an individual who were one particular time was against Islam, against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam only for Allah, Allah, Allah Yashodhara for Allah subhanaw taala to guide that individual and for him to become a Muslim and hamdulillah he's doing a great deal of good for an Islam. So we should never give up on any individual. We always make dua for people to embrace Islam and for us to be in mysteries for us to be examples for other people. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be the Allahumma Amin Baraka lofi come was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
