bla Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh the brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called his people in Makkah for 13 years. Not a day, week, month or year past except that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strived with his people. Even though they rebuked him, they mocked him they made they called him names. The Prophet sallallahu Addison never gave up on his people. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to PA F. And the people rejected him and the children they run him out of time thrown stones. Allah Allah, Allah gave him the choice of having those people destroyed, or to be
left. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made dua that from those, those particular people, maybe people would embrace Islam Subhan Allah, as we know that Allah Allah Allah sent the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam as our Rahmatullah mean as a mercy to mankind. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to a people
Isa Elisa to Salam was sent to but it was sort of Musa alayhis salam was sent to when it was
on the apparent it seems that these three prophets who mentioned Allah himer salatu salam was spent was sent to a specific people. Both Musa and Risa Rahim Salam was specifically and it is the case they were both sent to the children of Israel, but not slightly. Those were the that was their people. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, however,
was sent to who, to the Arabs No, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to the whole of mankind. And at the time, when the Prophet sallallahu Addison was residing in Makkah, when the Prophet sallallahu ederson was receiving revelation amongst those, if you like, on the grand scheme of things only to that very few people. Yet Allah subhanaw taala told and revealed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the Quran kuliah you have nurse O mankind in the rasool Allah He Aleikum, Jimmy,
all mankind, that you message you messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you are a messenger to the whole of mankind. This was in itself a miracle. Because He Allah subhanaw taala is informing the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, even though you are a messenger, and have been sent to Mecca, your message, your messenger ship, your prophet hood is for the whole of mankind. And here we find Subhanallah in the year that we are in now that the message of the of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is in Ireland me is a reseller tune, Alameda is a universal message. So after 13 years, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed the Muslims only after Allah subhanaw taala
gave permission for the Muslims to go somewhere else. This was an unborn min Allah this was a command from Allah subhanaw taala that Allah Allah Allah allowed the Muslims as a whole as a group of people to leave Mecca, and to go to another place. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave permission to all of the companions, and from them around the world have Bob and his brothers, eight Rhodiola and Homer and all of the other Muslims, Abu salah, and all of the other Muslims to make the hijra, a great journey to leave a place that they were, what they consider their own city, their own families, their own property. A person may think what you leave one area and you go to another, you
know, when you move house, and maybe it's an exciting time. But this, this retailer, or this journey for the people was not such there was not a holiday or people moving into new homes. These were a people who left their homes and we're going to something where they didn't know what they were going to face, maybe no home Subhanallah that they would only be able to take the property that what they could carry on their backs. And if they were fortunate that they were blessed by Allah's pound to Allah to have a donkey or a camel to add a few more belongings on that. Whereas the vast majority of what they owned, was to be left. But they will Subhanallah ready to make that sacrifice, and to
leave Makkah and to go to an unknown land to themselves. This is known as the hijra, the migration of the Muslims and more specifically, the Hijra of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The journey that the messenger salAllahu alayhi salam went on was an amazing journey, a great journey, which involved a great amount of danger that he would face and his close companions would face. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was from the last individuals to leave MK nearly all of the Muslims had left MK and Kureishi that they were aware of this, that the Muslims had left MK and had gone to El Medina, only a few left or few remained in Mecca from them. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam he
close companions, Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu Anhu and some of the close the members of the family of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and also from them. So haber Rumi and also from them. I live in Abu Talib Radi Allahu Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was aware now that the Kure should become more severe and the attempt to stop the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know that the coalition made an agreement amongst all of their tribes. In fact, a bliss came in the form of a human being, to mention to them, Why don't you all have tribes come together and agree, choose one individual from each tribe to go and take the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, then nobody will be able to say anything to you. Meaning that if you have a youngster from all of the tribes, let's say they're 10 tribes, and there's a youngster from all of those tribes, who which which tribe, are
you going to blame? Is anybody going to take on 10 tribes is not possible. This news was told to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the angel Jibreel Alayhis Salam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided not to stay in his own home who took his place. I live in Abu Dhabi, but not the Allahu and they showed a great amount of bravery on on the part of Alia Radi Allahu, and the Quran they came, and they surrounded the house of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam when they entered the home only to find a live in Abu Talib Radi Allahu Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The following morning. He went to a different place and then around overtime in the
when it was very hot in the daytime he went to the house of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han.
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said, yeah rasool Allah. This is a very strange time to come knocking at my home. He didn't say that. But this was a very strange thing. Oh messenger of Allah. You have what has brought you hear is only a very serious matter. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Please don't just speak to you alone and all of your members of your family please put them go to another place. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu and he said yeah rasool Allah. We are all your family Subhanallah Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah was willing to even show the profit that is a solemn as a family member, love the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam so much. What Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah
dreamed of or desire of so much for was to be the companion or to be the individual who would go on this blessed journey with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to El Medina. But he didn't want to impose himself wanted to wait for what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to instruct. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Abu Bakr is being given permission to me or for me to make the Hijra Abu Bakr earlier I said, is it the case that I'm going to be your companion, your travel companion or messenger SallAllahu sallam? Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told Abu Bakr, that he would be the companion Subhanallah here we are, and we think about this because Abu
Bakr here, he began to cry.
A generate salah the Allahu Anhu never in my mind, did I ever think that a person could cry out of happiness. I only saw if a person was to cry, it would be out of sadness. But here she saw her own father Abu Bakr Radi Allahu, and crying out of happiness Subhanallah
here we have an individual who is about to undertake a journey to leave this city to go to another city and the city that they are living in 99% of them want to kill you want to take your life. And here you are happy that you're going to go on this journey with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't thinking about this as a really dangerous journey or what you may what we may face in terms of the people trying to catch us. He only wanted to be with his most beloved. And that was the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam undertook the journey with Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Allah, and also with Abu Bakr, he had a servant and they also had a guide. So there were four individuals making this particular journey. So they went and the normal
state of affairs that when you leave Makkah, that you travel north, and you make your way to El Medina. However, bearing in mind that more or less all of Makkah, there was a bounty on the head of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to bring him to the Kadesh dead or alive 100 camels to be given to the one who brings Muhammad Sallallahu added him to the chieftains of the Quraysh. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the other companions they did. And bearing in mind also, that the guide that was going to help the Prophet Salah Salman Abu Bakr to Medina, he was a non Muslim, but he was a very well experienced and skilled guide, and was a trustworthy individual. It shows the
permissibility of of Muslims interacting with non Muslims if they have the skills, not a problem if they're trustworthy, not a problem at all. hamdulillah what they decided to do was to go south in the opposite direction of Mecca of
Medina to go to the opposite. We went to South America and the opposite direction of El Medina. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left Makkah, and he went to the southern part of Makkah, he resided there for three days with Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allahu anhu, in the heart of the cave of fote, which is a bull, which is a particular mountain, which is known even to this day now, where the Prophet SAW Selim stayed there for three days. And then the Quran as we know, they came looking for the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam more on the mouth of the actual cave itself. And if they were to look at one of their feet, they would have spotted them, but Allah subhanaw taala
protected them. And if you Subhanallah if you go to Surah Tober, which is chapter nine of the Quran in verse number 14, Allah subhanaw taala mentions beautiful, beautiful verses describing this particular incident, which is an opportunity for us to go to the Quran in chapter number nine, verse number 14, where Allah Subhana Allah describes the beautiful incident here, where Allah subhanaw taala and also the Prophet sallallahu. I just said to Abu Bakr, let the husband in Allah Nana, that do not be this do not have any despair, do not be sad, for indeed Allah subhanaw taala is with us. And this is something we can always take with us that regardless of the situation you are in the
difficulty when the great trial that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was in leaving Makkah and all his belongings and his family traveling, bearing in mind, it is a very dangerous journey leaving Mecca to Medina and all of the Quran wanted to kill you. Remember that the Prophet sallallahu Ellison and Allah Allah Allah said letter has been in Allah hermana Do not be afraid Do not be sad for indeed Allah subhanaw taala is with us and this is something we can take with us at all times. Inshallah, to Allah, Baraka lofi wa Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
