Hello hamana Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa Salatu was salam wa schriften via he was even more serene while early he was here Jemaine
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Continuing with the seer of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In our previous sitting sitting together, we spoke about the first revelation that came to our will evident to be sort of La Whiting's alum.
And that there was a gap between the first revelation and the second revelation.
We said that there was a difference of opinion as to how long that was. However,
what there is pretty much no disagreement upon is that the second set of verses that were revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were the verses from certain death.
where Allah subhana wa ilevel addressed our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
by saying, Yeah, you helmet death, your comfort. The more abeka Kabir was the back of a boy, what Rogers of
these verses were then revealed to interviews I sold them. And these are the first verses which now commanded and told the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he was now to deliver this message to other people.
The meaning of these verses are Mohammed envelopes in garments arise and worn, and your Lord, I Allah azza wa jal magnify, and your garments purify.
Now we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was both a MOBA Shira Juana hero, he was both a bringer of glad tidings and also a warner the glad tidings of the paradise and the reward that is with the loss of pinata Allah as well as the punishment that awaits those who disobey Allah subhanaw taala. So, he was both bring up glad tidings and a warner. However, you find in these verses from the very beginning, he sallallahu wasallam has not mentioned as a bringer of glad tidings and more Bashir, but he is told to stand up and to rise conferenza to warn his people, because the loss of panatela was an is of course fully aware of the reaction of his people, that he
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to be met by a big resistance and in consequence to that he would be required to be patient and go through many many struggles. And because of these many struggles that he sallallahu Sallam would go through what a Becca Kabir, therefore your Lord magnify him.
So you find that in each stage of these ayat Eliza gel is preparing our Navy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for each stage that he would go through all the one envelope 10 garments. Remember when he saw the law is an entity his home when he said to his wife, Khadija rhodiola and her zimny Louisa mill, cover me cover me, then Allah subhanaw taala just him as the one enveloped in garments, to remove this, take these garments off, because you are now going to stand and you are now going to warn mankind. And bear in mind when you are going to warn mankind to glorify and magnify your Lord. Do not fear the people but fear Allah subhanaw taala The one who has no partner, or the burqa photo
here, and your garments, purify them, that this is the nature that Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be upon in a pure way
and reduce these idols that you are to stay away from them, because that they will remind you that what the tribal tendencies are going towards you are to shun these.
So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah to our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when and upon receiving these verses,
that he was now going to begin the call.
Now this call or calling to the path of Allah subhanaw taala has to be done in a wise way has to be done in a clever way.
And abuse Allah Allah has and began secretly inviting people to Islam.
And what it means secretly is being careful and inviting a select amount of people
to accept Islam, because he knew sallallahu alayhi wa sallam already being already been informed by what aka
the cousin of digital the Allahu anhu that there's no man that came with such a message except what that his people would fight against him and run him out of his own city.
So the first person that he spoke to
invited was his wife Khadija rhodiola on her. She was the first woman to embrace Islam. In fact, she was the first person to embrace Islam at the hands of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
she wrote the Allahu anhu was there to embrace Islam First of all, and she learned how to pray with our beloved Nabi sallallahu sallam, and learned how to perform the ablution. The jabril Elisa Lam came to lead the Prophet sallallahu nslm in prayer, taught him how to make law. And that Hadith or the lion was the first person to see this first person to witness this, and that he or she had the Alolan who would be the first person to pray the Salah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Also from those who embraced Islam early, what was valuable about the Allahu anhu.
Now I will tell him, who was the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and he's the one who looked after and the VESA Salama he was very small, from a very young age, that he had many children and wasn't that well off. When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam grew older, become of age that the Prophet sallallahu 87 took responsibility for one of the children of Abu Talib. And he sallallahu wasallam took responsible of responsibility for Ali. So ali ali alone who was
had the blessing and the virtue of growing up and living in the household of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Also, those who embraced Islam or invited and embraced Islam, from the very beginning was is a dibner haritha.
Now zaidan haritha was known as the one who was beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was the first freed slave to embrace Islam. Now, his story or
especially at the early stages is quite interesting. in that interview, sallAllahu wasallam send them actually adopted, adopted zeytinburnu Hadith as a son. So this to call him is Abraham, Mohammed Zayed, the son of Mohammed alysus. And this of course, before the changing and the abrogation of this ruling, which came later in the chapter of sola sola has app, but before that, they did not hide it was known as ADB Mohammed because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam adopted him.
Now Zaid, radi Allahu anhu was originally a free person from you know, free family, however, was captured, captured as a child, and brought to Makkah, and was eventually purchased in mcheza, slave subpanel.
And that is how he eventually ended up within the household of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Eventually, his father, the father of zayde, came looking for him and he found Zaid, ignore haritha in Makkah, and he found that he was a slave, and that he was living in the household and specifically under Rasulullah sallallahu, Alexandre.
When this news reached the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and that this was indeed the father of zayde,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to say, that this is your father, and he is a free individual, and that you came from freedom. Therefore, you have the right to go back with your father. You have that right. However, zadara, the Allahu Allah on whom he chose to stay with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he zadara de la has said the out of school a lot, I would never choose anyone over you. To me your rank equal to a father and an uncle.
The father of zayde at this time said, Woe to you. This is before slim, Woe to you. I saw when he
when he came to find his aid in MCC, he said woe to you. Will you choose slavery over freedom? He said to his own son, you're going to choose to be a slave, we can come back with me and you will be a free person. And he replied, Yes, indeed, I have seen such things that make this man IE Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that makes me easy to to say and it is with all certainty that I say I would never choose anyone over him.
So the manner and the treatment that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would give to his aid was something that even when his aids father came back to find him, that he wanted to remain with the Prophet sallallahu It was
also the daughters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that they also were called to Islam and embraced Islam. So zeyneb and cusum Fatima and they are the Allahu anhu. They raised to embrace Islam.
And here you find sapan Allah, the hell
Hold of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all embracing Islam
and now Vu are so slim his wife, Khadija radi Allahu Allah and his four daughters all embracing Islam Zaid who was living with them at the time as well. They were the first people to live in an Islamic household. They were there to see the recitation of the all the revelation of the Quran come down. They were there to establish the prayer immediately. It was without a doubt, or truly ideal Muslim household.
Also, from the early people to embrace Islam, was the very close friend of an abuser as I said them was Abu Bakar acidic.
Now Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was a very close friend to the Prophet sallallahu ala even before Prophethood before he was a prophet, Mohammed Salim that Abu Bakr is very close to him. And the difference in age was maybe just two years between them.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
explained Islam to Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu that it without hesitation that he accepted. He accepted Islam straight away. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that every single person I invited Islam, stumbled, hesitated considered the matter, even just for a moment. However,
one exception to that was Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. For there was no hesitation, there was no time to think about it. There's no time that he needed to consider the matter. Rather, he embraced Islam immediately.
Now avacado, the Allahu anhu
was a nobleman, a high ranking person within the people of licorice. He was in terms of lineage in terms of his tribe and his namesake, or something high standard wasn't as you know, an unknown person. He was a businessman, and he was known for his fair dealings and his good manners. And he was also fairly well off, rich.
And here it is that you find an abuse Allahu Allahu Salim, offering him the life of the hereafter. But without a blinking of an eye that he would have he accepted that quite easily
at the hands of Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu how many other people embraced Islam? Now, if I mentioned these names, these are great names of Islam. And each one of them has a great position. And Islam and these individuals, in fact, that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam gave the glad tidings of the paradise. So Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu that he went to his close friend or a friend of the Allahu anhu and he accepted Islam. And then he went to Abdul Rahman mouth or the Allahu Allah, and he accepted Islam, and sad even Abby walk us with Uncle the paternal or maternal uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he accepted Islam as well
as debatable. radi Allahu anhu accepted Islam at the hands of abubaker and polyarticular Obaidullah radi Allahu anhu accepted Islam at the hands of Abu Bakar, acidic rhodiola one, these five individuals were the fruits of the dour of Abu Bakr, Siddiq karate Allahu anhu. And you just have to look at the CLR look at the lives or the history of each one of these individuals. And you can see the effect that they have on our lives now throughout history, that they were by Allah spontaneous permission, the fruits of
our workers, dow.
So these were the very early
Sahaba, who embraced Islam. Then after that there was a second wave of converts. Okay, second wave. There's like a group after they accepted Islam then after that, another set of people accepted Islam, bearing in mind that this wasn't an open call. This was not an abuse of aloha Islam, going to the middle of Mecca, outside the Kaaba and calling people openly to Islam. It wasn't done like this. It was done. For example, choosing an individual, that the Prophet sallallaahu Andersen knew that person knew their integrity and
the trustworthiness that he would offer them that Islam to accept Islam, and they would accept or not. So the professor would choose individuals and likewise Abu Bakar are they allowed to certain individuals it wasn't just public knowledge.
So the second group after people after these initial people they accepted Islam, other people like Abu Zubaydah,
Abu Zubaydah, Jara, Abu Salah Abdullah Abdullah acid epidemic Kazuma Mora the Barbara Binti Abdullah muttalib outcome even I will outcome
obey the ignore Harris
Abdulmutallab side, the blue side, the blues ate,
the two sons of mother own, and also the father of medicine, I do not have the line home. So far to move into a new field, the sister of the aligner,
a smart been to be backup,
and hubub yBnL are not all of these were the second wave of Muslims or Sahaba, who embraced Islam. Also amongst the early converts, was
led 30 or the Allahu anhu, as well as his brother, or nice his mother, Bella lip, Nora, blah, blah, blah de la Han, who also from the early converts.
there was about 40, in all
40 early converts. Now not all of them were poor,
destitute, and didn't have very much. Yes, there were some who were like there who didn't have very much, because there was a claim that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam offered the hereafter to those people who had nothing in this life. So these people don't have anything in this life got nothing to look forward to. So therefore the Prophet sallallahu wasallam focused on the poor and the destitute and those who don't have very much, so that they would be more likely to have some hope in something and it would be the hereafter. That was not the case with the majority of those early converts. Many of them in fact, were had a good standing within the community and that they were well off. And in
fact, the minority were people at the very beginning, who were who didn't have very much, okay, some of them might have no your setup or your line will be lined up, or the line who, okay, these some of these companions didn't have very much. But things like people like Abu Bakar, Casa de force mindedness, deciding that we will cross over the line when they were people of stature within the community. So it is important for us to be fair, and just when talking about these early converts, that there was a mix between between the two.
So the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, continued in his secret call, managing to draw people from his own family, and his own close circle of friends.
And these people, that they could then in turn, quote, other people if they could be, of course, trusted. And they had to be very careful to invite certain people so as not to cause
any harm to those who embraced Islam and the early call itself. This was, of course, a very important decision by the prophet sallallahu sallam, and was a wise decision
at this particular time.
they used to meet in the house of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam. And when the number of people that they became too many, and the house wasn't big enough, they had to choose
They had to choose another place to sit and learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because what they would do is that they would come to an abuser, I send them learn that I had learned the verses that had been revealed.
And whatever those verses what they contained, in terms of knowledge about Allah subhanaw taala, any commands and prohibitions that they would take that and they in turn, would, they in turn would go back to their families, the Sahaba, who took this from the prophets, I said, they'll go back to their families, and then they would teach the other people.
So this is exactly what they will do. They wouldn't just go to the Prophet sallallahu isn't just to read Quran just to learn how to recite.
This was the first step to learn how to recite and memorize the words of Allah subhanaw taala, to preserve it in their hearts, and that whatever benefit they would take from these ayat that they would want to implement it immediately without any delay.
So the house of Rasulullah sesam became too small, so they had to choose another place, and they chose the house of outcome, even an outcome.
young chap, a young young person why they choose that? Well, it was a place which was quite close to the center of Makkah. And it was a place where
they see they thought that it was the case that the Quran never would they thought that people were coming to this house for this particular reason. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
used to then invite the Muslims to come to this house to learn and
benefit from the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala.
And bear in mind that these first 40 people
and it is this section which
is very, I believe, very important for us to really think about.
Because he you find
this information that we're talking about, try to live it and imagine it as best you can.
That you have an obesity law, why'd you sell them with 40 or so companions, from different backgrounds, from different tribes from different understandings. So he brought Rumi on the line who, okay from faraway lands.
And who I said was here now training the first generation of Muslims,
the first generation.
So for example, we've had ministry coming visiting visiting us over the past few days. They have a number of teachers, and another teacher, another teacher who taught from you took from that teacher, and there may be between them, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, maybe 29 people, so 2929 generations of people. Here we're talking about the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and that first generation of people,
that when you come to the masjid, for less than when you go to a conference, to listen to a set of lectures with a particular theme, that you will go there.
And you may see an array of speakers speaking in different languages, and delivering in so many different ways, but here, that's a hybrid of the line home, they did not have an array of speakers to visit. They did not go there to see what the theme was, what's it going to, they went there, because their teacher was Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam one teacher for them.
And the topic was, what has Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us so that we can live
so that we can experience and put in our lives what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us.
So the Prophet sallallahu ala, Selim was training them, teaching them, educating them, imparting knowledge to them, so that they would become the best of generations.
So that they would be a people who would take this reseller this message beyond the lands
so they were a special people.
They were special people chosen by Allah subhanaw taala to be the first people to listen to the verses of Allah subhanaw taala there was no such thing as Let's go find Sahih Bukhari or find a hadith in sunon. Abdo, let's go to tafsir ibn katheer, or let's go to tesira tabari or tafsir mm uncooled to be your hammer malata Allah, there was none of that. Any questions that they had any misunderstandings that they had, they had the ability to go right direct to an abuser, Lala who is an ask and to listen.
So you find them a people who completely submitted and obeyed the revelation that came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they had correct knowledge. They had correct understanding the fact that whenever the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim would tell them something, it wasn't a matter of slf It wasn't a matter of a difference of opinion. It wasn't a matter of which must have anyone is following. They were directly drinking from the fountain of knowledge taken from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is why and it is something that you always need to remember, remind yourself and remember
that taking an understanding from the companions is something that you You shouldn't you cannot do without.
Whenever you want to understand the deen of Allah subhanaw taala talking about in the form that it has reached us now in all the different sciences of Tafseer and Hadith, and rasulillah, Filkin all these
important topics and sciences for us. Whenever you look at these topics and sciences, the earlier you go back in understanding
in understanding the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala, the better. The earlier you go back to understand that the better, never forsake. never forsake those other generations in understanding the deen of Allah subhanaw taala and then taking others over them, because they were a chosen people by Allah subhanaw taala to directly take the revelation when it came.
So they were a people, as I mentioned, who committed completely submitted to it
and obeyed it immediately.
the Sahaba the lion home,
they did not treat Islamic knowledge, as though it was a series of facts, just information that you're going to accumulate. The Sahaba of the Lyneham did not treat it like that.
However, or rather what they did, or how they did treat the revelation of a loss of penalty either is
how or what impact it was going to have on their lives directly.
It wasn't just information or knowledge for knowledge sake. That was just the start. That was just the beginning of them.
When the knowledge came to them, they would say, Okay, this information, this revelation of Allah subhanaw taala, that has come to us. What is it talking about? What does Allah subhanaw taala telling us, it may be a yet talking about a last panel to Allah telling us about his names, and his attributes. Therefore, that would increase the men in their fear, and their love, and their hope. And they all under trust and reliance on Allah subhanaw taala so the more they knew about Allah subhanaw taala, the more that you find that the worship of the heart would become stronger.
And when they knew about the reward of Allah subhanaw taala that they would increase, they would increase their hope to receive that reward from Allah subhanaw taala. The more verses they heard, they heard about the description of the paradise, the more that they would yearn and want it wanted, the more they heard about the punishment, the severe punishment, that would face those who are disobedient, and turned away from Allah subhanaw taala this would increase their fear
about the punishment of the Hereafter,
that they would hope for eternal bliss and eternal happiness, and that they would have a real, real fear of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala so their hearts would be attached to the Hereafter, the real life, the eternal life, that they recognized the and understood in its realness, the illogical approach, or a logical understanding, or the delusional understanding of some people that they would have in this worldly life, that they'll have this life only and nothing beyond that. They realize they knew how to treat this world, the life for what it is.
So when you see that great character, the manners that they were upon the deeds and the actions that you know, the night prayer, they used to do every night, the fasting that they used to, you know, do every week, every other day, the charity that they would give,
as a tofik, from Allah subhanaw taala as allows you to bless them and made them successful. All of us have somebody for us to look to as a guide, as a role model. So every single Sahabi every single companion that you see, and that you know of, you know that they had the best example that was ever given to mankind. They didn't read about his story, they didn't listen to about they didn't listen to the story or the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu Ala Moana on a CD or an mp3. They were they're living and seeing the example of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when they wanted to increase in their prayer, it is because an abyssal Allahu Allahu Selim was praying more than any of
them. And when they wanted to give charity,
they found that the Nabi sallallahu wasallam had nothing to give left, nothing else.
And when they wanted to do good actions, they found an abuse of the law who I knew Selim was the first person to go and show them how to do that.
This is the example that they had in Rasulullah sallallahu it wasn't them. And allegedly, Allah tells us law called the current Allah configure rasulillah he was certain
that you indeed you had in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of example.
So those blessed individuals who had that most beautiful of opportunities to live and experience what it was to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, imagine what it would be like for them. And upon receiving the revelation, how it would impact their lives, when the knowledge of God when it came to them,
that they wouldn't be a people that when something bypassed them, they didn't receive it, that they would be questioning and asking, why didn't I receive that. And if they did receive something, they knew that this was something that Allah subhanaw taala could have quite easily not decreed for them. So they were not overly happy. And they didn't forget themselves, about what had been given to them. So they had a balance in everything that they received or anything that they did not receive, that they had a correct understanding and that they didn't become overly happy about what did they come to what came to them, and they did not become overly sad by that what passed them.
And on top of that, and added to this, because of this issue, that they will always strive to earn halon
they will always strive to consume anything. The only that Allah subhanaw taala would be pleased with, they would never think or they would not try to acquire something that would may bring about the angular velocity panel to honor the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu that they turned away from this worldly life but at the same time, they did not forget what our last panel that I had written for them.
This worldly life,
and of all human beings, of all people that ever lived on this earth before and after, and Nibiru sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they had the greatest teacher in all of these affairs, the best person to teach them how to pray, the best person to show them how to fast, how to give charity, how to fear Allah subhanaw taala. There are two types of people that exist on this earth.
There are two types of people. There are those people that when they place their head, on the floor, that they do that out of pure submission. And then there are those who do not place their head on the floor. Maybe in reality, they placed their head on the floor. But it is like that they placed their head on the floor, but they have never done that truly out of submission. These are the two people that exist on this earth. And those whom Allah subhanaw taala blessed to truly submit and prostrate to Allah subhanaw taala has indeed given them one of the greatest gifts, and that is to recognize your Buddha, to recognize that you are a servant, and your submission to Allah subhanaw
taala. And those who do not prostrate to Allah subhanaw taala correctly, then have diseases such as arrogance and pride.
And then below, do not recognize and
will never recognize the great blessing that the last opponent has given to some and how they are married woman and how they are deprived. That the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, as I mentioned, did not forget this life, because they bought and they sold, that they planted, they sold they harvested. And that they realized that this was a means for them to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala they will never people who became over impressed about what they had done, but always saw themselves as a people who could always achieve more, who could always do more and better themselves.
This was the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. And these were the generation whom Allah subhanaw taala chose. And these were the generation who were blessed, and having the best possible teacher that anyone could ever have in our beloved and Ibiza law while he was and
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
then began teaching in the house of an outcome.
And that the Sahaba of the lion who would go there frequently, and that they would learn what what Allah subhanaw taala had revealed to the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
he would find the state have a companion when he would enter the house of an outcome and when he exited the house, that he would be another person.
And here we're talking about the best of companions that were given to any prophet alayhi wasallam
that this companion Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu, or honorable hotel or a Fern or Alibaba pilot, or any of the other great Sahaba, or the alliander males, would you be pleased with them all? We would, they would enter the house in a state, they would sit with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that they would exit and leave the house in another state. What does that mean? That means that when they would go in there, and they would listen to the verses that came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that they would receive a spiritual charge, that you would find that the man would raise further,
it would raise further, not only, not only because the revelation that Allah subhanaw taala was sending down, but imagine
and if you have a particular teacher or a particular person, that you have a love for for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you when you are with them, and that they remind you of Allah subhanaw taala you find that your Eman indeed increases. Imagine now of people that whenever they sat with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, how they imagine how it would increase
and how they felt towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when they saw him, that they loved him so much, that they would even feel shy just to look at him and continue cutting it continue looking at him, they would just have to look away, because they felt so shy of him.
That when they entered the home of an outcome that they would exit another person, that they loved him for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala because they knew the character and the personality in the manner that he had. And the Sahaba of the aligner knew that Allah subhanaw taala had chosen this man will have been named Abdullah sallallahu Sallam to be the Messenger of Allah. So in their minds and their understandings, this is a direct link tabula alameen to Sahaba de Lyonne him this is an opportunity for me to have a direct link with my Lord.
Just as those people when they memorize the Quran, and they're given a senator given a jaza This is a great honor for them, that they will have a person who took from this person who took from this person who took from this person going back all the way to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, back to jabrill. Back to Allah subhanaw taala Do you have a direct link
to Allah subhanaw taala the honor that Allah subhanaw taala gives to some imagine when looking at a list of a list of names, that after the Prophet sallallahu said you see your name immediately after that. It's like the highest of the highest in terms of strength in incentive of or chain of narration. This is whom Allah subhanaw taala chose to be around our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is how the dour It was at this very very early stage and inshallah to Allah we will take how it then developed after this particular time inshallah tada now next lesson was Allahu wa sallam robotic Elena Vienna Mohammed or other early he was of the age mine was Salam aleikum wa
rahmatullah wa barakato.
