Al hamdu Lillahi wa wa salatu salam ala Mala Nabil by the AMA.

00:00:09--> 00:00:54

We thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for every single blessing he has given us, Allah says in the Quran, with us Bella Ali Khamenei, Alma Hoover heroes and rebel Tina, he has immersed you in his blessings. Some of them are apparent and you see them and others are hidden and you don't see them. And Allah subhana wa Tada says in the Quran, what intero do Nirma to La Hey, la Sua. If you attempted to count the blessings of Allah, you would not be able to even count them. So appreciate the blessings of Allah. And the biggest blessing that he has given us is the blessing of iman, the blessing of knowing who created us and knowing why we are here, and knowing what happens to us after death and

00:00:54--> 00:01:38

knowing how to live our lives. Those of us who were born Muslims, have you ever thought how life would be if you didn't know these questions? Have you ever understood the meaninglessness of life without religion? Only somebody who has converted to Islam knows this for us who have been gifted Islam by birth. Allah has blessed us that we were never a day without knowing who put us here, without knowing our destination without knowing what is the best way to get there without knowing what's going to happen when we die. Can you imagine not knowing these questions? So Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Allah says Alhamdulillah he lady Madonna de Harada, warm Hakuna, Teddy Allah, Allah

00:01:38--> 00:02:23

and Hidin Allah, all praises due to Allah who guided us to this faith. And were it not for Allah we would never have been guided to this faith, and especially those of us born within an into the faith. How grateful must we be? A Bedouin was asked by a wise man. Make dua for us. At the Bedouin made dua so eloquently that the wise man said it is best he made dua rather than me. What did the Bedouin say? The Bedouin raised his hand and he said, Oh Allah, you gave us your best blessing, which is Islam. And we didn't even ask you for that blessing. So how about when we raise your hands and ask you blessings? How can you not give it to us? Oh, Allah, give us your blessings.

00:02:24--> 00:03:08

So Subhan, Allah Alhamdulillah, Allah Ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar, brothers and sisters have been asked to speak a little bit about the Sierra. But how can I speak in one lesson about a source of knowledge and light and Rama? That we can spend many, many, many hundreds of hours talking about? Nonetheless, a reminder to myself in all of you. Somebody said to me, we want to hear from you. This was the content content of the talk today, your favorite episodes or incidents of this era, and you elaborate upon them? I said, this is a very difficult question, but I'll try to answer from a different angle. Because really, there is no one favorite but what I can do, look at the Syrah from

00:03:08--> 00:03:58

different angles and lenses and extract one or two points that inshallah will be of benefit. So if somebody were to say, what is your favorite characteristic or hook of the process, and that really, you think about a lot if somebody would ask me that, I will say, reading through the 01 of the characteristics that I always think about and admire, and feel ashamed that I cannot reach is the fact that despite all that happened to our Prophet, system of persecution, and of interrogation and of assassination attempts, and of mocking and ridicule, never once did he uttered a complaint or chakra to any other human being.

00:03:59--> 00:04:46

Well, Allah He, I think about this, and I feel a shame because I haven't lived up to that. I haven't lived up to that. Never once. Did he give a complaint to somebody? Why are you doing this? How can you persecute or you will never the dignity that he had? Of course, he felt pain. Allah tells us he feels pain. Allah says what occurred in our animal and Nikola vehicles. We know that your heart is in pain, notice will Allah Allah said to us, He did not say to us, Allah told us what is in his heart. He did not come to us. Oh my people, I've been persecuted all my people I've been wrong. Never once did he do that? And will Allah He we are facing I am facing one 1 million of his

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

persecution yet my tongue shut quassia Kosha go along was that May Allah forgive your tongue, our tongues, but he is who Switzerland has Santa. He is a role model for us. And you know, again, brothers and sisters. I'm being honest

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

I cannot live up to that. But the goal is not We cannot live up 100% The goal is we try. The goal is we strive, the goal is we keep on reminding ourselves, Allah gave us this role model, not so that we become like him. That's not possible. But so that we continually try for improvement, continually push ourselves to get not to that level, but as close as we can to that level, and in our striving in our attempt is our salvation, not in getting to that goal, because we're never going to get to that goal, we're never going to reach that MACOM that's not the goal. But the goal is to strive to get as close to as possible. And so we learn one of the hook of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:05:43--> 00:06:24

sallam is that you don't go around complaining to other people to other human beings, they cannot help you, Allah will help you. What's the point of getting sympathy from other people, you live your life as dignified as you can Subhan Allah, all that happens, even to his own, comb his own Quraysh he didn't go to them and said, Are you not ashamed? Not once others did. And they should. You know, when somebody else does bloom when somebody does don't talk to somebody else, you should say, How dare you do that? Yes. But the person himself should not go around begging for sympathy. I mean, if they do, it's not sinful, but it goes against the whole of that our process and taught us who do we

00:06:24--> 00:07:10

complain to? Who do we complain to? Allah says in the Quran, in a school with the workers ni, il Allah, we complained to Allah. I've said this multiple times. complaining to Allah is the essence of Eman. Complaining about Allah is COFRA with a villa complaining to Allah is the essence of Eman. I gave the hobo here two days ago I gave one complaint to Allah that Judas it his sallam said right on this I said this What did you know say you're Rob in the millennial Boom. Oh my Lord, I am in pain. I am in trial and tribulation. This is complaining to Allah. Oh Allah it's difficult for me. Oh Allah, the pain is too much for me. Oh Allah, look at what the people have done. Yes, no problem.

00:07:10--> 00:07:56

Complain to Allah get Allah's Rama elicit Allah sympathy don't elicit sympathy from other human beings as much as you can. This is one of the whole of of our Prophet system that truly I find myself constantly thinking about as the struggles of life come to me. Another question that can be asked what is a story that resonates with me personally, and again, this just personally what all of the stories have benefited them. That really gives me inspiration and hope when it comes to creating visions when it comes to sun when it comes to doing the best wherever I am. That story for me, has been a story that I remind myself of every time I feel a little bit fatigue a little bit tired. Like

00:07:56--> 00:08:36

right now I've been a very long day today. But I have to remind myself of this story of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a story that inspires me to understand that our religion requires us to go the extra mile and do the best we can. regardless of the circumstances. That story is predating the Syrah by three years. Three years before that predated the Hendricks, who's my three years predated the hedgerow by three years when the Prophet system understood he has to migrate to Medina. And he understood the Qureshi is now going to abandon and boycott him. So he's looking for a group of people a tribe that will adopt him, you know, back in the day, like in our times, we have

00:08:36--> 00:09:15

nationalities, right? Imagine if your country says within one or two years, your passport will be taken away, you will have to go find another country. Well, back in the time they had tribes. So the Prophet says he realized he had to find another tribe, because the Quraysh Ebola hub was going to cut off remember when, when Ebola passed away, right? Abu Talib supported him until he passed away. As soon as I will thought they passed away. Right. And Abu Lahab took over. Abu Lahab said to the process of them, you are not welcome with the bundle Hashem go find other tribes. It was because of this by the way he tried and thought if the incident of part if right, he tried because of this,

00:09:15--> 00:09:58

well, what else did he try? We learned three years before the Hijra in the time of Hajj, when all of the tribes of Arabia would gather and each tribe had a place they will do hedge from in Mina, you know, if you go for Hajj, you know you have the American camp, the British camp, the Turkish camp, right the Indonesian camp if you've been for outright, the same thing back in the days of Jaya Helia, but tribes, this tribe here this tribe here this tribe here, so he said to Abu Bakr, Siddiq or Abu Bakr today of the days of hegemony today, we're going to go to the tribes that might be potentially willing to take me in. So choose those tribes go and tell the truck go and find those

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

tribes for me why

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Add askable Bukhara, Sudhir, because Abu Bakr Siddiq was the most knowledgeable of all the people of Makkah when it comes to tribes and tribal history genealogy. So he delegated this is what a good leader does. He nurtures your talents, a good leader understands what you're good for, and then pushes you forward. So he said to all workers to do that, today, we're gonna go to the tribes that are the most useful, the most conducive the most potential that can adopt us. And so I will look at a severe catalyst in his mind. And the Prophet system went one tribe after another, he went to the bundle he was in, he went to the middle kingdom, he went to all of these tribes that would make

00:10:36--> 00:11:14

sense, large, powerful tribes, tribes that had the strength, the numbers, the quantity there is to potentially take on somebody like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Kinder tribe was very interested, the Kinder tribes had come, let's meet our VIP delegation meet the, you know, the ministers that are here for Hajj. So they invited the process in again, and the process and gave them the message. And he said to them, will you take me as one of your own and in return, I want you to protect me like you protect one of your own tribesmen. All I want from you is the freedom to call to Allah subhanho wa taala. Right. So the tribe said to the Prophet system, we are interested in

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

this message. But once we win over the Arabs, who will become King

00:11:22--> 00:11:29

Subhanallah look, they would interested for what once this message wins, who will be the King,

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

the Profit System said in the world kalila you t him and Yeshua,

00:11:35--> 00:11:56

the kingdom belongs to Allah, and Allah will give it to whomever he wants. I'm not gonna promise you the kingdom of this year you want I will promise you Jana. Yes, I will promise you the kingdom of Allah and hereafter, but you want to join for siesta for political gain. I cannot promise you that. By the way, if they had joined, they would have gotten deen and duniya.

00:11:57--> 00:12:34

But he's testing them. He's testing them. So they said, You want us to join your new faith. You want us to fight on your behalf. You want us to talk? Then when you went over the Arabs, you become king? No, thank you. And then let him go. And he spent the rest of the day going between tribes that you make sense when you make a plan. You use your logic, your reason you use your common sense and you strategize with each other. There are too many tribes to go to in one day, I will walk out acidic strategize the top six or seven that you could do in one day. He strategize. Okay, what's the story that really intrigues me? Between two of these tribes?

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

As the process was walking to make another appointment, he passes by six people.

00:12:42--> 00:12:51

Six people. He said, Money will calm who are you? Which tribe is this? They said we are the huzzah Raj.

00:12:53--> 00:13:08

The Prophet CISM took a minute to register. I'll hazard edge that you will huzzah rich, which has riches this then the Bella as we say went off the husband Raj of the hood of your trip. Yanni they were so in they were so unknown.

00:13:09--> 00:13:28

He has to say which because Raj is this all you mean the hazards that's following the because they had an alliance that you had where the more famous the husbands were the underdogs, right? The hustlers were not that famous. They were very small six people in the hedge. That's it six people. Oh, the huzzah Raj of the Yahoo's of yesterday. They said yes.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

The 100 Raj was not on the agenda.

00:13:32--> 00:13:48

The 100 was not on that list. And it would make no sense to put the hazards on that list. Time is limited resources are limited. You maximize utility. That's what the Shediac commands us. Yes. But here's the point. An opportunity came

00:13:49--> 00:14:08

an opportunity that was not planned. The Prophet system said to them, May I sit with you? They said sure. He sat with them. And he gave them the same message with the same conviction and the same passion and the same sincerity as he's speaking to the entire tribe of kinder.

00:14:10--> 00:14:22

And they thanked him, he went his way. And he went on to the next major appointment, and call us didn't even think about that. But you see, Allah azza wa jal works in ways we don't understand.

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

We do not know which door we go knocking will actually open up.

00:14:29--> 00:14:46

We do not know which person weren't nice and kind to might end up changing the world. We do not know which small act of good will quite literally quite literally change the course of human history as happened right now. The husband edge were abuzz.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

And they went back the entire way to yesterday of Medina talking. This is exciting. This is a new message we know idolatry is wrong. Now, of course, Allah azza wa jal had prepared yesterday by gave a quarter of you

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

Months ago, why Allah chose Medina why Allah chose yesterday and the whole circumstances listen to us online right? Now again, as I share with you Allah Juan has said later on, I should have said, Allah gifted the Prophet system with the situation and yesterday been pre Medina, Allah made that situation the process and didn't know what's happening. He wasn't aware of the political intrigues of a small village called yesterday. He wasn't aware it's not on his agenda. But Allah subhanho wa Taala had prepared the plan. And when the right moment came along, and the process was passing by the Heritage, rather than say, Oh, who are you six people or the president? You're not powerful.

00:15:36--> 00:16:06

They weren't powerful. You're not wealthy. They weren't wealthy, who are you to know, never underestimate the potential for change. Never underestimate what one small app can do. And so the hundreds went back, a buzz, talking, talking, and they said, This is an amazing feat. We're going to embrace it. So the next year, they came back with 12 people, and lo and behold, they wanted to embrace Islam. This was the first covenant of Acaba.

00:16:07--> 00:16:37

And then they went back these 12, and they spread Islam that were preaching until 70 plus people came in the second treaty of Aqaba. And they said, Yeah, rasool Allah, we are strong enough to now adopt you come, we will take you in yesterday. And so the second treaty of Acaba took place and the rest, as they say, is history. Now, why is this so inspiring to me personally, because I have to remind myself all the time. We don't know that Hazaragi moment in our lives.

00:16:38--> 00:17:24

We don't know that moment. That's one small good deed one smile, one act of compassion, one act of charity, one act of influencing that person, you have no idea what that person might eventually go on to do. Our job is not to judge outwardly. Yes, when we plan we plan outwardly no doubt when we plan we plan sensibly. When we plan logistics resources are limited, no doubt. But if an opportunity comes there, where you can do some good, where you can change, influence, give, preach, then take advantage of it and leave the rest to Allah subhana wa Tada. And typically, as Allah Himself says, As Allah Himself says, Whoever has Taqwa of Allah Wilma yet tequila Hydra Allah Who Maka Raja Allah

00:17:24--> 00:18:08

will provide a way out for him while you're Zukerman Hey Fula and Allah will give him sustenance and give him his success from a source he never expected. Allah is telling us a source you never expected to help you will end up helping you. You must do your job. So yes, you knock on the biggest doors. So yes, you do what your resume needs to be done. But in the end, your trust is in Allah and in all likelihood, help will come from places you never expected. But you must go knocking on different doors you must put in the effort you must show Allah azza wa jal that you're serious about what you want to do. And then Allah will find a way out for you. Nobody could ever have imagined.

00:18:08--> 00:18:17

Interestingly enough, the prophets of sin was shown yesterday. In Medina, of course you have there was the early name of Medina. He was shown yesterday in a dream.

00:18:18--> 00:19:05

Despite the fact that he was showing the city. His mind did not recognize this because he hasn't been to the city as an adult. He has not been to yesterday, he just saw a beautiful date palm mini city. And he said, Allah showed me that I'm going to migrate to this land, my imagination yearned for Yemen. I wanted it to be Yemen. Why Yemen, because Yemen at the time was powerful. Yemen had an established dynasty, Yemen had a civilization and culture and Yemen could be a competition to Quraysh so when the process some saw yesterday, Medina in a dream, even then he didn't recognize and he thought it might be Yemen. Then he said, it turned out it was Medina, while Medina to highroller

00:19:05--> 00:19:48

home and Medina is better for us. Medina is better for us. So for me, this story is always inspiring because it asks all of us to not look at what we judge the outer opportunity to not assess the outward but rather to practice what our process some said Yes son, Allah has prescribed as the Hadith says perfection and all that you do. Allah has prescribed that you do things as perfectly as possible in all that you do. So this is a role model Hadith for an incident for me to always keep in mind another thing again just generate some random anecdote and incident shoulda said some benefit insha Allah Allah and this I've been told as well there's going to be a q&a as well so we can have

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

some q&a After salah I think Insha Allah, another incident that especially again, I've given an entire number of lectures about this in the seat. I think I spent one full episode on it as well. And it's

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

really, to me, if somebody were to say, what is the story from the Sierra that for you summarizes the way the process have dealt with the sahaba. The love that he had for the sahaba. Of course, there's so many stories. And when I mentioned one I'm not meaning to trivialize the other. I'm simply saying you have to choose one or two that you know, each person has different and every one of you by the way, you might have different stories, no problem. This theater resonates with us at multiple levels. For me, one of the stories that is one of my favorite when it comes to how much care and how much compassion, the process I'm had for the Sahaba is the famous story of Javed if and

00:20:38--> 00:21:09

Abdullah Jabba did Abdullah and what is called the selling of the camel to Jabil. There is an incident in the Sierra called the selling of the camel to Jabil there's an incident in the Sierra and this is such a loving, powerful emotive compassionate merciful incident that really it just how can you not love this man so the lavoir that he was set up when you read this story Jabil Radi Allahu Taala and was 15 years old when he became an orphan.

00:21:10--> 00:21:15

job it was 15 Jabba didn't Abdullah has father Abdullah became Shaheed and

00:21:16--> 00:22:05

his father became Shaheed he was the only brother and the oldest sibling, he had seven sisters, seven sisters to take care of, and He's the eldest amongst them. And so jobber was overcome with grief, with anxiety with stress. And jabbered Felty he became an adult adult very fast at the age of 15 here to now take care of the family, right, and Jabil felt the burden of being a full grown adult. And on one of the expeditions two years after the soldier, but he's now 17 years old, 17 years old, young man 17 For that time, you can say our time was like 2324 Any biologic intellectually 17. So don't imagine 17 of our our 17 alone was time that it takes a while but 17 of

00:22:05--> 00:22:41

that time. So on the way back from the journey, the prophet system notice that Jabil was on a very old camel, it was an expedition and Javid had an old camel and he was lagging behind the entire army. And the process was that the front and he looks behind and he sees Java is lagging behind. Right? So he slows his camel tells the people you go everybody go he slows his camel and allows Java to catch up to him.

00:22:43--> 00:23:29

The Prophet SAW Salem and jabber at this stage job it is a nobody really in the grand scale of things he's a little teenager at this stage he hasn't established any credentials he's not like Abu Bakr Omar he's just a young boy young man right now right and the processing slows his camel down and stocks to Java says ma him which is a very nice way of saying literally Hey, what's up? It's not force her Arabic the way that in okay for how No, ma'am? What's going on? Like literally even the phrase gentle phrase, you know, everything okay with you, my yam said, Yeah, rasool Allah, my father passed away he left debts, you know, I have, you know, seven sisters to take her cetera started just

00:23:29--> 00:24:05

telling him his story, you know, and you know, there's many versions of the Hadith variations, I'll give you one version of them. So if you want to go into advanced detail, you can listen to my seat about I'll give you one version, because there multiple versions of it. And he noticed that Job had had a patch here that had dried up. Now in those days, when you put perfume on your body, the perfume would leave a mark. And in those days, because perfume was expensive, right? It was actually a sign of like, good thing that you put the mark here. You know, I'm saying these days, we want to know mark on the perfume. So we have the perfume that doesn't even mark but in those days, you

00:24:05--> 00:24:39

wanted to show people that you have perfume on your clothes, right? So he said to Jabra and what is this? You're having perfume? So he said I just got married, jealous with Allah. I just got married. And then he made the famous joke. Did you marry a younger like yourself? Or did you marry an older lady? So he said no, I married an older lady. So he said Why not marry a young girl like yourself? You can have fun together. Literally. He said this to him. Right? You need to understand the context. He wants to cheer the young man up right to not able how to they're able to go to the Hill quicker the two of you can play together and laugh together. Why didn't you marry somebody your own

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

age? So he said, Yeah rasool Allah I married an older lady because I wanted a motherly figure for my sisters Subhanallah sacrificing, you know, I wanted my younger sisters needed a lady that is experienced that is has widow children. So I want to somebody like that, you know? So the prophets has said What is wrong with your camel? Why are you lagging behind?

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

So he said yeah rasool Allah you know my father didn't leave any money he left us in debt this is the only camera I have. So the prophecies are made dua to Allah and hit the camera with that sticker the gentle camo, all of a sudden the camo became super fast started galloping forward and now the processing has to catch up to him. Okay, and Javid is so happy I have just got Tesla played upgrade

00:25:30--> 00:25:49

you guys know Tesla played or do I need to explain it to you? The plate especially if you don't know google it okay, I have just got the upgrade now. The camera is vibrant the Campbell is young now. Okay, life is gonna change this is my camel now. Then the Prophet SACEM said sell me your camel. Oh jab.

00:25:51--> 00:25:55

Can you imagine after all of this sell me your camel Oh, Java

00:25:56--> 00:26:35

and Java to being 17 years old and having sisters and so I can tell us what Allah not because he has sisters. I can tell rasool Allah, I have this my only camel. I can tell you this is the only thing I have. If we sell the camel, I can't you know, do anything business and go I need the camel. The process was quiet. And he said Neha sell it to me, oh, Jabber. He went 10 times 10 times asking Java to sell the camel and Java 10 Time said I can tell rasool Allah, how long can you say no.

00:26:36--> 00:26:58

Then finally, Java said, Okay, I will sell it to. So the processor offered a reasonable price some say to 300 MB. So Java said yes, well, that's not enough. So he continued to negotiate and bargain until he got a price that was 10 times the value of a regular camel

00:27:00--> 00:27:36

10 times the value of a regular camel. And then Jabra said okay, I will sell it to you adapt exorbitant price, but yeah rasool Allah Can I at least write this camel till Medina rather than you take it right now walk the rest of the way. Can I at least ride my camel. And this is actually a whole chapter of Philip has created the issue of conditions in the contract Subhanallah right, the issue of conditions in the contract and that it is permissible to have many different types of conditions. So if you sell somebody a car, you say, Okay, I'm selling you the car, but I'm gonna buy a car in five days, you're the car is yours, but I want to ride my car for five days and I'll sell

00:27:36--> 00:28:13

you this holiday according to this idea. So you derive fit from this idea as well. So can you at least allow me to get to the city then I'll hand you the ownership over it's your camo. Okay, but allow me to you know, do that. So the process that okay, so then, Javed began to think, yes, I got a lot of money but the end of the day, you know, a camel is not a car, there's a human element of attachment, you know, and I'm gonna have to get a new camel break it into my habits is going to have to come to like me or not either was going to be good or bad. And he began regretting should I have done it or not? And the end of the day, this is my family camel. It knows me knows my family,

00:28:13--> 00:28:55

whatnot. And he's having doubts, but had he made an agreement. So he walks into the masjid little bit sad still, the mother has gotten a good price. And he says, Yeah, rasool Allah, the camel is outside. I have a tight outside. So the President said to Bilal, give him that quantity, give him that 40 there, give him all of that. Okay. Then, Jabba took it, walked outside the process and said when he's going out Oh, Jabil Where are you going? He said, um, he was walking. So where are you going? Going? Going back home? jasola. He said, and your camel said the earth was yours. The prophecy ism said. Yeah, Java. Did you think we would steal or cheat your camel from you go take the

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

money on the camera.

00:28:58--> 00:29:02

The whole hour long episode was what

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

a halal trick.

00:29:06--> 00:29:36

It was a halal mechanism to cheer Java up. And to give Tim a good amount of gold and silver and and make him an upgrade as well with the camo and then say, take the money and the camo and go home. Now what strikes me really about this? Is that right now, Java really is not established in society. Right now job it has done nothing to make him stand out.

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

But still, our profit system is monitoring the entire caravan. Our profit system is singing what one teenager is doing. And it's something is in his conscience and he then spends an entire hour the whole thing back and forth. Subhanallah if that doesn't show you, if that doesn't show you, the o'clock the compassion the Mercy

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

See of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam for the Sahaba then Subhanallah that's why for me the story is so beautiful and touching, do you think we're going to cheat you out of your Campbell go take the money and the camel and this is called the hadith of Java and the camel, the hadith of Java and the selling of the camel and some of the scholars that can have a look at it and others they have written booklets deriving benefits and they have extracted more than 100 benefits from this entire incident theological o'clock legal 50 More than 100 benefits from this one incident of the selling of the Profit System The camel to java dot the Allah on but for me, then bein derivation the

00:30:40--> 00:30:50

main fat either Subhanallah Rama, totally valid Amin Rama totally either mean this is what it is a story that now the opposite.

00:30:52--> 00:31:37

What is an episode or incident that demonstrates the love of the Sahaba for the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And again, so much can be said. So previous, what different shows the love of the process for the sahaba. Now flip opposite amongst the sahaba. What is one or two stories that really shows that love that they had? And again, if I choose one doesn't mean I'm neglecting the others, but we have to you know, time is limited. But for me that one story that really touched me really resonates with me, is the story that occurred on the conquest of Makkah. The conquest of Makkah, when the pinnacle of that one, I mean, today is the day enough at Danna, Lika and Medina, this is

00:31:37--> 00:32:23

the first hand Medina This is the great conquest. Finally, after 20 years of persecution of expulsion of emigration of forced emigration, after multiple wars, multiple battles, now the Prophet system is coming back, having conquered his own people, having conquered Makkah, and cleansed muck of idolatry and made the Kadima La Ilaha illa Allah that is the highest Kalama and on this day, can you imagine the happiness on this day as Allah says, we're at NASA, you're the whole lunar feeding Allah here of wotja people were embracing Islam and mass, they were embracing it everybody's embracing Islam. And on that day, the prophet system was sitting, accepting the people's embracing

00:32:23--> 00:33:03

because, you know, in those days when you embraced Islam, it wasn't just the microphone Kalama No, bless it people, fortunate people, they would put their right hand in the right hand of the prophets of what a blessed fortunate, embracing right, and they would then see the Kenema and swear loyalty to the Prophet system individually one by one. So, and there was a shadow Anika rasool Allah Subhan Allah right, not a shadow under Mohammed. Shadow Allah Allah Allah wa shadow Unaka Rasul Allah, that is a fortunate home Radi Allahu Anhu model, the one who we have come after we ask Allah is Rama and mercy and compassion are we and we ask Allah azza wa jal to at least allow us to see and be in their

00:33:03--> 00:33:13

company in the era. But one of the people that was brought one of the people that was brought was none other than a boo Kochava.

00:33:14--> 00:33:16

An elbow Kochava who is he?

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

Abu Bakr Siddiq, father.

00:33:20--> 00:33:25

By this stage, it is estimated he's probably 90 to 95 years old.

00:33:27--> 00:33:58

He was so weak that he could not walk you know, they didn't have wheelchairs back then. So his family, his great his grandchildren had to carry him in a basket. That's how weak he was. And his hair and beard were completely white. And he was feeble, just bones. And by the way, even Hoffa was not like Abuja, hello, OMA Yerevan, Karloff. He was also not sympathetic.

00:33:59--> 00:34:35

He was somebody who was an opponent, but not I mean, if you listen to my seat, I say there were those who were like, vulgar. There were those who were the worst of the worst, generally speaking, that category, generally speaking, they never embraced Islam and they had miserable debts. There's something that you really stoop to the lowest level, when you have that type of personality. You let them be Allah will take care of them. But there were others who for whatever reason, they were genuinely in their belief system and whatnot. Alcohol was one of them. He said some nasty things, but he never really persecuted other people. He did, by the way, physically hit his own children and

00:34:35--> 00:35:00

grandchildren if you know the story, right. A smart Binti Abubaker own granddaughter when he found out that a smart had helped in the Hijra. he smacked her angrily that How dare you help the process of escape? Maka, he was very angry at his own granddaughter because remember the Hijra Abu Bakr and his son and his daughter all engineered how to do the hedgerow and Abu Kochava was angry that his own family

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

We had done this a worker's love, he took his anger out on an innocent granddaughter a smile, and he smacked her heart that How dare you have done this. So, you know, credit is not that was something wrong he did eventually he repented he's embracing Islam. So now he's being brought in a basket.

00:35:17--> 00:35:35

And Abu Bakr Siddiq is beaming my father's coming now, right after all that animosity after 25 years of hatred and putting down now finally he's going to embrace Islam. The process of looked up and he saw Abu Bakr standing in the basket was a vaca Hoffa. Our Prophet system said,

00:35:36--> 00:35:40

Hello, terracotta chef will bait tea.

00:35:41--> 00:36:00

Why didn't you leave the elderly person at home? I would have come to him. Right? This is it goes to his compassion. Why didn't you leave the chef? The chef here means old man right Hala character chef bit. You should have left the old man at home, I would have come to him.

00:36:01--> 00:36:10

So Abu Bakr said, No ya rasool Allah, it is befitting that he be brought to you which is what we expect Abu Bakr to say, right?

00:36:12--> 00:36:16

Abu Kochava put his hand out the process and put his hand in it.

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

And Abu Bakr is still deep began crying.

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

Why was he crying?

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

It wasn't because of his own father.

00:36:27--> 00:36:30

A waka Hoffa was friends with a boy polyp.

00:36:32--> 00:36:33

There were the same generation

00:36:34--> 00:36:47

and the last person alive of that generation. Everybody else has gone the only person live of that generation of Wolkoff. So I will Kochava brings back memories of all those who were gone.

00:36:48--> 00:37:34

And you know that Abu Talib was a father figure in every sense of the word except biologically. Even biologically he was a full brother of Abdullah the closest you can get to a father full brother of Abdullah and he loved the processor more than he loved his own children. And he sacrificed for the process of more than he sacrifice for his own children. And that's why even on his deathbed are both on his deathbed the process is almost crying. Yeah, I'm, I beg you say one word. And I will be able to argue in front of Allah about your one word or how Juca behind the law, please. Oh uncle. And Abu Qatada was this close to embracing Islam. But Abuja Hall was standing right there. And this shows

00:37:34--> 00:38:11

you the dangers of evil friends, and Abuja who said the one thing that Abu Talib had in him and that is the pride of his libido. Will you abandon the religion of Abdulmutallab the legend have been Metalia the kingdom, the master of the atoms, everybody loved up there, but it will you abandon the religion of your father out there, buddy. And so I will thought it didn't say the very last second, and he passed away as he passed away. Now, a vocal HOFA his hands there, a worker begins to cry.

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

Why are you crying? aboubaker

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

ya rasool Allah, I would give everything

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

to see a Buddha live right now put his hand in yours and say the Karima

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

Can you imagine that love?

00:38:29--> 00:39:15

Can you imagine that love? Wallah? It's beyond comprehension for most of us for me, including your own father is embracing Islam he's happy he's embracing Islam, but what would make him even happier? What would make him even happier than his own father embracing Islam? Ya rasool Allah to another alternative Hey, I wish I thought it was still alive. I wish the one whom you love like a father, I would sacrifice my own happiness for your own happiness. Yeah, rasool Allah, I wish he were here and he would give the shahada and you will be accepted Islam at his hand. Subhan Allah, Ya, Allah He the mind boggles at this level of of love, sacrifice, you're willing to give everything for this man,

00:39:15--> 00:39:56

even the happiness of your father, embracing Islam, yada Sula, I'd give up everything if I both ordered more here and he could make you happy with his Islam Subhanallah if this is not love, if this is not sacrifice, if this is not what we call the top here, which is basically you take care of the process and before you take care of yourself, then Subhanallah what is and brothers and sisters to the entire Sierra, the entire Sierra is a manifestation of that level of love that the Sahaba had, you know, in the incident of Arabia in this river, they BIA when the delegations of Quraysh came back describing the Sahaba in front of the process of them. What did they say? One of them

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

said, I have been in the courts of the end

00:40:00--> 00:40:39

Emperors of Rome and Persia, I have been in the courts of the Emperors of Rome and Persia, and I have never seen a group of followers more loving and respectful of their leader, then the US HalBer, Mohammed and for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, none of them raise their eyes to even look at him out of respect and honor. He can't even finish the command before people are racing to see who is the first to do it, when he does will do not to drop falls onto the water onto the sun, because people are there to take that will do for Baraka on their own bodies.

00:40:40--> 00:41:24

You're not going to defeat them, he said to the kurush these people love their profits are more than anything you can imagine. And the entire Sierra is like this. So brothers and sisters, the purpose is not something that is why a worker is a worker. Really, that is why Abu Bakr is Abu Bakr, but put that in our role model example. And if we cannot get to the level of Abubaker let us let us try as our Prophet system said hadith is a Muslim. It's a beautiful idea. And this is Hadith I'll finish off with what is the Hadith that gives me some hope. It is this one many of you know but this one especially the Prophet system said, How I wish I could meet a quani my brethren

00:41:26--> 00:41:54

and the Sahaba said, Ya rasool Allah, Allah is not a Quantock or do your brother and he said unto us hobby, you admire us have you have a special status? Yes. But there is another group called the whiny my brothers, they will come after you, they will never see me in this dunya but they will wish to see me and they will be willing to sacrifice all that they have. If they could give up everything to see me. They would want to see me. I wish I could see them.

00:41:56--> 00:42:36

Let us try to be in that category. Let us love the Prophet system so much from the depths of our heart, that we want to know everything about him want to study his Siraj willing to constantly imagine what would we do if he were here want to constantly take him as the role model and put forth an asset and we're only going to accomplish his brothers and sisters with knowledge, knowledge of who he was knowledge of how he lived knowledge of his times his life. So I encourage myself in all of you to study the Quran and the seer or the Sunnah study the Quran and the life of our prophets of Allah. Why do we say them? These are our only two ultimate sources every other source is secondary,

00:42:36--> 00:43:18

our ultimate sources our final sources is the Quran and this eternal well of knowledge and Rama and compassion, which is our prophets of Allah. Why did he was set it him and his life and his times in his statements? I make sincere dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. As he has gathered us all here today, I ask Allah azza wa jal, the robe of the throne that will God will kromm the hammer Rahimi, I ask Allah azza wa jal, the moon zoodle Kitab the moussaka little ASVAB I ask Allah subhana wa Tada as he has gathered us all here today to listen to the speech and to listen to the words about our prophets of Allah Who are they He was said to him, that he allows us because of that love to see the prophets

00:43:18--> 00:43:57

of Allah Who are they he was sending in for those that Allah I ask Allah Subhana Allah to either that by his wisdom for knowledge, no to him, he has denied us from being in the companionship of the process. And in this world, I beg Allah I plead to Allah that He not deprive us as being in the companionship of the processes in the next world. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada, the one who has chosen to allow us to be in this time and place and he has gifted us with Islam gifted us with Eman gifted us with the Quran. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala that on the day of judgment, He gifted us with the prophets of Allah Who are they he was seldom recognizing us by the Atholl by the signs of

00:43:57--> 00:44:35

voodoo I ask Allah subhana wa Tada that the Prophet system calls us directly by name to drink from his fountain and how I ask Allah subhana wa Tada that every one of us sitting here today we drink from the Herald from the fountain or the prophets of Allah who either he will sell him a drink that will forever I never caused us to never be thirsty. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to shelter us under his shape when there is no shape other than his shade. I ask Allah subhana wa Tala to be amongst those whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intercedes for on the Day of Judgment. Our Prophet says hit him the shot there our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw Hebrew macabre

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

machmood our prophets of Allah who it was sent him has the shofar Eye Opener I asked Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst those people whom the prophets of Allah who either he was sending into seeds for I asked Allah Genma gelato, who to be amongst those who enter agenda behind the facade and whether to enter Jannah with the first batches to enter Jannah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I asked Allah Jalla Gerardo who that he

00:45:00--> 00:45:41
