Get your most bewildering questions answered by Shaykh Yasir in the wake of authentic facts.
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in our last halaqa, we had mentioned the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the details that we know regarding that period of his life, we now move on to the period of his life. That is his early childhood, that is him growing up as a young child. And the fact of the matter is that we have very, very little information with regards to these first 2030, even 40 years. And as I said, in the last half of that, if we were to gather together the entire 53 years of muck of the Prophet system, it would be less than half of the next 10 years that we have information of in Medina, right. And of these 53 years, of course, most
of the information begins after the age of 40. So the first 40 years, the fact of the matter is, we have limited number of incidents very few. And I explained the reasons for this, and that is because who is going to record? And who is going to pass that down? And who lived long enough, and how numerous were the Sahaba, and how much persecution occurred. Right. So a lot of these factors combined. But one thing we believe, as Muslims, and this is what we take constellation in, is that anything that we need to know allow us to preserved. This is, of course, a theological point, right? We cannot prove it scientifically, anything that we needed to know about our Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wasallam, we would believe that Allah azza wa jal had recorded that. So the first thing that we know of his life after his birth, is the fact that his mother gave him to be raised in the desert. Now, this is something that is strange for many of us, why would a mother give her newborn to be raised away from the house. In fact, this was a custom of the elite of the kurush. It was a custom of the nobility of the kurush. And they did this for a number of reasons. So this was a status symbol, if you like, it was something that they did as being a part of this tribe. Why did they do it a number of reasons. First and foremost, they wanted the child to be raised in a pure and
healthy environment, they wanted the child to be raised in a pure and healthy environment. And as you know, the infant mortality during this phase of humanity. In fact, even up until 100 years ago, the infant mortality was extremely high. And so one of the ways they would protect the child is to actually take it away from congregations from what we call civilization, such that there's only two or three people interacting with the child, ie one family, right. And as you know, disease is carried by people by by people congregating together. So when you remove the child from this environment, you In fact, increase the chances of its survival. So for the mercy of the child, and
to increase the chance of the child living, then they would send him away from the city. Also, of course, they wanted to remove the plagues and the disease of the desert of the city. Also, they wanted to build stamina in the child, stamina and the child and make them adjusted to a rough life. Now, even though from our standards, life in Morocco was unbelievably tough, right. But for the people of mucker, they're used to it. And so they want to raise their child in an even more austere environment, so that they then become accustomed to the hardships of muck because children adapt to their circumstances much easier than adults. And that is why a child who is born in a very
impoverished scenario or situation, or in a very congregated or congested area, the child is content and happy, right, just as happy as the child born in a rich and luxurious family. Allah has made us in a beautiful way, the child knows how to have fun regardless of the circumstance, right? unlike an adult, now we're used to a standard. And if we were to laugh at that a lot be diminished in that standard life would become almost impossible to bear even though many other people in the world would love the standard that we have been diminished to, let's say, right, so it is human nature that children adapt to their circumstance. And this shows us that the whorish had long term
planning, they have vision that the child is raised in a difficult environment such that the hardships of MK appear like luxury. The hardships and mcca then appear like luxury. Another reason that some of the people have mentioned is that growing up in the desert away from the family will avoid the pampering that other relatives do. We all know that grandparents spoil the child, let's say right, so rule of thumb, grandparents spoil the child. In fact, some people say that's what Allah created grandparents, parents are strict grandparents are lenient, that's supposed to be the case. So not just grandparents, uncles, aunts, extended family, they all ruin and of course, every
parent knows that no matter how strict of the laws that you have for the children, when they go to their uncles, aunts, when they go to their grandparents. What happens all those laws go out the window.
So once again, to raise the child in a disciplined environment, right, they will be handed over to a particular family. And the final reason that the scholars of history mentioned for this rather strange custom from our perspective, but from them they were accustomed to it. The final reason that they mentioned is that the child being raised in the desert, amongst certain tribes, I realized not every tribe would go into my clan and ask for it for children. These are certain tribes that are known for this. For this fact, these tribes were known for their fluency in Arabic. Now the Arabs viewed the language of the cities has been corrupted. The Arabs viewed the city language as being
the change Why? Because what happens to any language it gets influenced by other cultures, any language gets word loans from other cultures, right? So for example, if you read a modern Arabic newspaper and our times 30 to 40% of the words are English, just aerobicized. And as for Pakistan, I would say 70% is English. More than newspapers right? As my problem I can't understand because i don't know i think is the word. It's actually an English word. Right? limited company edition. The whole thing is English. I'm trying to read what is this? You know, in order to I don't understand it's not, you know, coming in my head, the point being where does this occur? Not in the desert, not
amongst the villagers amongst amongst the city dwellers, right? So the Arabs of the Qureshi again, they're thinking long term. They don't want the the traders from Yemen from from all over the country to come and corrupt their Karachi dialect. So what do they do? They send them to the pure areas, the tribes that were known for their fluency of the Arabic to be uncorrupted, to be speaking the original ancient Arabic and the most famous tribe that was known for this. The the saving of let's say, the pure Arabic is the blue bucket, urban side, the blue sorry, the blue side they've been buckle, the blue side they've been buckle. And of course it was this tribe that adopted or that
took care of the Prophet sallallahu idea he was setting them. In one authentic hadith the Prophet system was asked tell us about yourself. Tell us something about your childhood about yourself. So the profitsystem said, an adult what you ob Ibrahim
Boucher. He was startled by 250 feet and he said even Becker, I am the daughter of my father Ibrahim Ibrahim made a dua I am that manifested you all know that Dr. Robin Rasulullah Minh, whom he is writing in my article, your limo Nikita will take meta will use a key him so he brought he made a dua when he's building the first house of worship. And as he's putting the stones in place, and he's praying to Allah subhana wa tada he makes a dua, Oh Allah send a mighty prophet amongst my progeny, who will recite to them your verse, purify them, and teach them the book and wisdom. So he said another word to Avi Ibrahim, I am that dour. I am that too. I responded. Well, Bush, Bush rah. And I
am the glad news. Now some people have interpreted this to mean the gospel, because what is gospel means good news. And the Christians they misunderstood the whole point, according to one theory of Islam, that when Jesus is saying that, you know, I'm coming to preach the gospel or the good news. Well, the good news here is, in fact, Bushra is right, because good news and gospel is the same in Greek. That's what it means that the gospel is the good news. That's how they translated it. So some Muslim theologians, and it seems to be a plausible theory. Some Muslim theologians say that these references in the New Testament that I have to send the good news that I'm gonna have come with the
good news. This good news is not the gospel as they understood it. The good news is, as Allah says, In the Quran, and as the Prophet says, Adam says that, for us to remember this Muhammad, there's going to be a prophet after me. His name is Ahmed. So he's saying no wish rah Elisa akihisa. I am the good news that my brother Isa predicted and then he said, was started by two and I was a foster cared about our means to be foster care. Foster Care means to be suckled by another woman that your mother so I was foster cared by the bunny side even buckle and the bunny side even backer was the most famous tribe known for taking care of the children of the porridge known for speaking the
proper Arabic. Now you all know the story of Halima, we're just going to summarize it briefly. Halima bent this idea, the famous foster mother of the Prophet system, she narrates the story in the first person, and it is recorded in a number of books of Hadith and of Sierra, and so inshallah it is an authentic hadith, no doubt about that, that she said that she and her husband were suffering greatly from poverty. And this was of course now why would they take care of a child they wanted money? Obviously, they are. Villagers, not even religious. They are people living in the Bedouin. They are desert dwellers, right. And of course, as you know, desert dwellers they don't get much
income. Life is very tough. So one of the reasons why they would walk into Mecca
and adopt children from the rich people of the orange. This was a custom only for the rich and elite. It was not a custom for all of the people of Makkah, only the nobleman. And as we know Abdulmutallab is the chieftain, so his children and grandchildren, they must have this custom. This is a custom for the nobleman and the elite. And of course, by the way, in our times, the rich they have nannies there is they have governesses. Right. This is the custom of our times in those days, this was the rich, they would send their children to the desert. So how do you moneris that we were suffering greatly from poverty. So she's explaining why would she want to take another baby, because
that baby gets money, the parents give money. And so I convinced my husband to go with the yearly, there was a yearly time that the women of Vanessa, Vanessa diefenbaker would go to Makkah and would obtain any newly born child who would be willing to be adopted or not adopted, but foster fed for two, three years. So there was an annual event, everybody knew this was the period for one week, they're gonna come and they're gonna find out who has given birth, and they're going to go knocking on their door, and the mother of the child will choose which of them seems to be the one that I like the most, just like we do in our times, you choose the nanny, the governess, so the mothers will
choose the best one. So Halima says that she had just had a newborn. Now, of course, you have to have a newborn to take care of another because you're gonna breastfeed, so she just had a child, and they're suffering from poverty. And by the way, she had an older doctor as well. So when the processor was taken, and there were two children of Halima, there was an older daughter, probably around seven, eight years old, we can estimate Her name was shaimaa. Her name was Shay map. And so she is the foster sister of the Prophet sallallahu. And he was setting them and she had a newborn son, I could not find the name of this son, in the five or six books that I looked up over the early
period of Islam, Allah knows, maybe we'll find them in other books, but I could not find them in those original books. So she had a newborn son, and she had an older daughter shaimaa. This newborn son, of course, is what caused her milk to flow. And so she is able to foster care another child, so she goes with her group of newly mothers, because they're all new brothers, you have to be a new mother to take another child on. And so she goes with the group, probably 510 women from her clan, and they enter into Mecca, and they find out who has given birth, and they hear of the newest batch that has come forth in the last five or six or seven months. One of them, of course, is the child
that was called the orphan child, we were told immediately, there is an orphan child, his father's already dead. Some of the women didn't even go visit the house of Amina because the only reason you would adopt the child is because you want money. And when the child is an orphan, then it's known that you're not going to get that much money. After all, I mean, words, you're going to get money from them. But I have no doubt he's the chieftain, but he has, you know, 10 sons and five daughters and of those, so many grandchildren, who's going to give a large sum of money for an orphan. So some women didn't even go to the house of Amina, others went and when they saw how poor and the poverty
they they didn't like taking a child who was an orphan had him as well visited. And she tried to move on to find another child because she wanted the money. When the week finished, every one of her friends had acquired one of these newborn children, except for Halima, and the only child remaining was the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. So she told her husband that I feel embarrassed. It's, it's like a bit shameful that all of my friends are going back now to the desert and they have a child, and I don't have any, it seems like it's, I'm lost. I mean, it's not fair meaning I want to be like them. So her husband said, Why don't you take the orphan child? Perhaps
Allah will bless us through him. Notice there's good in his heart, perhaps Allah will maybe he's not gonna bring that much money. But perhaps Allah will bless us. And this shows the couple were a good hearted couple. They had good manners they were they were thinking religiously as well, even though at this time they're pagan, but they realized taking care of an orphan is a noble thing. So her husband said, Why don't you adopt? Why don't you take care of the foster child that's an orphan, perhaps Allah will bless us through him. And so they agreed to take care of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. I think he was send them all the narration said that as soon as they took the Prophet
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the miracles began right then and there that she only had one old goat that had stopped giving milk for a long time. As soon as the Profit System entered into the tent, the goats, others became full. She had an old mount that they were riding the both of them. And when they put the Profit System along with the family on this ride on this animal, it became the fastest animal all of these are mentioned. And of course, this is no problem at all a lot as the widget blesses whoever he chooses, and it is expected that these things would have occurred to those who took care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Generally speaking, this dis foster care usually lasted two years. The custom was to take care of the child for a year and a half to two years, right. So you don't come back the next season, you come back to visit, you come back to show the child the next season, and the child stays with the mother a month or two and then given back to the foster care, so after two years when the time has come, and in the middle, Allah knows how many times she came back to show the child no doubt they must arrange something, we don't have any details. But it's not as if there's no touch at all. There's no contact at all, every few months, every what not. There must have been some type of
returning and Amina would have met her son, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. During these two years, the blessings that Halima witnessed in her household were so many that she was scared of losing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so she invented a million in one excuses in front of Amina that the child is still young, and I don't want to sit and send him back to the city and is going to be problematic, and there's diseases and plagues that will take care of him. And she kept on persisting, persisting, persisting until in a felt that there was so much care and love that, that the Profit System is good hands. And so she agreed to extend this contract for a
longer period, even though for sure she could not have given the amount of money that her other friends would be getting. But it is not money. It was the blessings that came with the taking care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, it was during the second phase of this foster care that the famous incident of Shaco solder of opening up of the heart occurred. And this is an incident that we have no doubt about, because the Koran references because there are authentic hadith about it, because the Sahaba saw the line on the chest of the Prophet system that showed that it had been opened up. So this is clearly something that we believe in when the Prophet system was
four years old. And it's emblematic narrates the Hadith in Sahih Muslim so there's an authentic hadith, no question about it, that gibreel came to the Prophet system when he was playing with the other children. When when jabril came, the other children ran away, they're scared. The profitsystem stood his ground. As a four year old kid, he's displaying bravery, he stood his ground, what do you want from me? and Julian came and overpowered him. sada who this means that he was struggling for your kid is fighting an angel, the strongest Angel Allah has created but he's not going to go without a fight. Again, this shows the determination of the Prophet Mohammed's lucidum. So gibreel
forced him on the ground, you can't find God you forced him on the ground, and he opened up his chest shot considerable just towards opened up his chest how what all of this alunos debris does not need instruments to do what Allah wants him to do. He opened up his chest and he took his heart out.
And he took out a black slither a black portion from the heart and He threw it away and he said had helped to shape Bonnie Minka.
This is shape bonds portion that he had in you pause here for a second before I continue the heartbeat. Every child that is born shavon pricks him as soon as it is born, according to our profit system, and I believe him completely because I'm a Muslim. Our Profit System said that is why babies cry when they come out of the womb.
Because the child picks him out of the shape and picks him out of jealousy out of hatred or anger. shaitaan wants to harm the child as soon as it comes out of the womb. Literally as soon as it comes out. This is the hatred and animosity of shaper because Allah preferred Adam and the children of Adam over him sociate bond has become our enemy even from the cradle up until the grave. So as soon as the child is born, shavon pricks in prods him and some type of element Allah knows how and what but this hadith demonstrates some type of element is put into the child Allah crease the child pure shaitaan attempts to corrupt it from literally not day one minute one shaitaan begins the corruption
process right from the beginning and there's something then Allah knows we're never gonna do this in the middle like that has some type of connection some type of contact This is perhaps how shaitaan whispers into us this is how now remember shade bond does not ever control us. Satan doesn't have a control panel like these games you girls you guys and girls play we just pressed buttons. Oh no, no JSON cannot do that. No, nobody can blame Shimano lachute on force me no chiffon does not force. Allah says in the Quran on the day of judgment when mankind will say to shavon Why did you do this to us? shaytaan will respond maca Ana de la cumin so on. I didn't have powers over you. I didn't
control you in LA except one thing and TAO to confess the job to
I called you and you guys responded. That was the control I had. I seduced and enticed you you guys responded, fella Teru, Mooney woo and fusa come, don't come and blame me this conversations in the Quran. Don't come and blame me go blame yourselves. I didn't have any power over you. So what what this type of relationship is Allah knows best. But it appears that this allows the shape on access to whisper into our thoughts. That's really all that it is that we get these bad thoughts not coming from us. And by the way, when you get a very evil thought, a blasphemous thought, No, this is from Shetland. It's not from you. It's not from your heart of a man. This is from shavon, something
really vulgar, vile, bad comes in, you get a desire to do something. And you're wondering, where did that come from? You know, the answer is from shaper. And your job is to fight it, because it's just a whisper. It's not a control. So that relationship was cut off at the age of four. And this is proven by another Hadith that the Prophet system said that every child that is born
shavon assign shavon meaning he believes the big shape one assigns a Corinne to that person. Every one of us has occurring right now, right here. Maybe not in the measuring shot another outside. But all of us have a buddy. They are with us. 24 seven. They know us better than our mothers and our spouses and our children because they're with us. What is the job of nicotine? Just to whisper bad things. That's it. I look at the hatred that shavon and his cohorts have for us. Right? They spend their whole lives just trying to misguidance that why jealousy and hatred and anger? Why did Allah choose you over us, we should have been chosen. This jealousy and hatred. shavon assigns according
to every one of us, we all have our coins.
And the purpose of the Paladin is to whisper these evil thoughts. So the Sahaba said, even you you're a solo, you have a Karim. He said, Even I have a padeen except that Allah helped me against him. And now he's accepted Islam, and he only whispers good things to me.
So the Prophet systems badeen whispers good things. And this added, again, it relates to this point that whatever relationship JSON might have had, it's completely gone. There is no other more relationship because jabril took it out How the hell do shape ornament, he took it out. And then he washed the heart in a golden cup of Zamzam. And then he puts it back. So he washed the heart and he put it back and he sealed it up. He put his hand like this, and the heart sealed up. So we believe the first open heart surgery was performed by God upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because it is a physical taking out of the heart. It is not just a spiritual thing. It is a
physical taking out of the heart. So when the children that the the foster brother and shaimaa he was playing with, when the children ran away, they ran back and they said and they're looking in the distance that there is a man throwing him on the floor, putting blood in and this and that. So they come screaming and running that our brother has died or brother has been killed a man has abducted him, a man has killed him. And of course, had him and others they became so worried they come running outside. And they found the profits of the low set of sitting, His face is pale spatola not willing not screaming or crying. He's the brave for you Who is the bravest four year old the world
has ever seen. He's pale. He's suffered something, but he is controlling the crying and the Wailing. He's sitting there. You can sense the fear that the terror but he's not willing and screaming. And when they saw him, they saw those lines on his chest and unassuming pneumatic says, I could see the traces of that line on his chest. And this is narrating this ad when the Prophet system is around 60 years old. And he's saying I could see the traces on that chest. Now, if Allah had willed, it could have been a clean cut. Allah doesn't need to leave a line. You understand what I'm saying here, Allah doesn't need to leave a scar, because a lot heals and complete. But Allah wants to demonstrate
that something physical happened. And there is a physical line, like you have in a scar that unnecessarily medic saw that I saw, I could see that line in the chest of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is the end of the Hadith in Sahih Muslim now, this incident of taking the heart out and washing it occurred one more time.
Almost 45 years later, when the Prophet system went up to the journey of our marriage. We're going to come back to that a one on one but we're going to come back to that. And we're going to mention again that gibreel did the exact same thing that he opened up the Chester the process and before taking him on the journey. And he washed it in some some water and he put it back but there's one difference. There was no black cloth the second time there was no little
clot the second time because the blood clot has already been gotten rid of when the profitsystem is four years old. This incident was what concerned Halima and she decided before anything else happens, let me quietly return the profitsystem to Amina because she doesn't know what's happening strange things now she knows there's something about this child. Now this incidence happens and she gets worried. And so she quietly returns the profitsystem to Amina, and that was when he was returned to the care of his mother Amina. Of course the the the spiritual benefits that we derive from this particular incident is that the Profit System is being prepared for a pure and clean life.
The Profit System is being prepared to live the most respectable, the most dignified, the most pure life that man has ever known. And that is because it is the son of Allah that all the prophets have the perfect characters. It is the son of a lot of the characters of the prophets are impeccable, that they cannot commit major sins in Arabic we call it mousumi or isma. The prophets isms all or all the Prophet not even our just our process and all the prophets are mousumi. Now So from what from major sins, they can commit minor infractions. They can get angry like Moosa did, they can do hasty things like Yunus did, all of these things are human, minor issues, but they cannot commit a
major sin. They cannot commit any major sin. And by removing this so the Prophet system was therefore raised in this pure environment, even though it was a spiritual cleansing. It was physically done. It's a spiritual cleansing of the heart, but it was physically done. And it was revealed in the Quran. And Allah azza wa jal mentions lm nasura, la casa de la. And pretty much all the scholars have said have said that this is a reference to opening up I'm not sure. La Casa de la COVID. We opened up your chest right. And we gave explained a number of weeks ago in the hood by give that there's a number of interpretations. One of them is that and this is the majority
interpretation is that this is a reference to the cleansing of the heart. The other interpretation does not contradict it, and that is, Allah is saying lm nushrat kasandra ie by guiding you to Islam, because Islam is also Shara has Southern Islam is called the opening up of the heart. So being guided to Islam makes your heart open to Allah's wisdom.
It is narrated many, many, many years later, 50 years more than 5054 years later, roughly during the Battle of her name, which is one of the last battles that the prophets has ever fought. This is after the conquest of Makkah. When what eight and nine, feeding Elijah Fletcher when all of the tribes are entering into Islam, that the tribe of suicide in Bucher was also fought and conquered. And the tribe of boaters are the rockers the tribe of Halima. And so as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is walking, one of the woman who was conquered was the all of the prisoners. She stands up and or excuse me, no, she is brought to the Profit System. Yes, she stands up an extra commotion
about the process and doesn't see and she claims to be the sister of the Profit System. And you have a prisoner who's claiming to be a sister the process and because Hubbard didn't know what to do. So they brought her to the Profit System, and they said you had a school of law, this lady is claiming to be your sister. So the profitsystem said, How do I know? He knows who the sister is referenced? That's shaimaa. How do I know that you? Because everybody knows that Halima is from this tribe. Now a woman stands up says I am deserted. Give me a sign. How do I know that this is you? So she said, I still have the marks of the bite that you beat me when I was carrying you as a baby on my back.
I still have that. So the process is and realize that this is shamima she says a story that nobody would know. Right? So he says this is shaimaa. And so she freed he freed shaimaa and he gave her many many presents. It appears that Halima and her husband were not in this present or not at this occasion when they were conquered. Later on, they came to visit after this paddle had occurred. They came to visit. And so Halima and her husband visited the process of the law while he was setting them when he was in his late 50s. And when he saw Halima, he recognized her instantly because this is of course, Halima would not have changed that much Seamus, of course, he's six years old. By the
time he sees her again, this is you cannot recognize, but Halima was an adult. So he when he saw Halima, he stood up to greet her. This is his mother's foster mom, he stood up to greet her, he took off his own shawl, his own reader, and he placed it on the ground for her to sit on. And in some narrations, your husband was with her and some narrations and only mentions that Halima was there. And it is said in some of the books that she accepted Islam and the prophecies and gifted her him
And they went their way, nonetheless, getting back to the story where we are now. So shortly after the Prophet system was returned to Amina, we only have one incident that is recorded during this time. There's only one incident I have looked as much as I could in all of the ancient in the classical works. And there's only one authentic incident that we know. So So hello. What else did Amina do? And what were the moments and what was her data? We don't know anything. There's only one thing that has been narrated that you all know and that is that Amina decided to take her son to crib. Now let's pause here. Remember three 400 years ago, you mentioned that the Prophet systems
great grandmother was from yesterday, right? Now. Surely you see the wisdom in the laws, divine plan 10. Out of all the cities, I mean, all of his other grandmother's grandmother's are Karachi. They're all from Mecca. And it just so happens that the mother
of the Father falls in love with a little girl or a girl from yesterday, out of all the travels. Surely you see, Allah has a divine wisdom plan, that there should have been a connection. And there was a connection between the professors and yesterday before the immigration out of all the cities, the only city he traveled to as a little child, and the only city that he has other relatives in, in the entire surrounding areas is but one small village of yesterday, which was built to be called Medina. Coincidence? Of course not Allah has a plan. Allah has a plan. And so and it was, of course, the customer of the Arabs, that they preserve their lineage completely. And they were proud of their
lineage, as you know. And they knew exactly who was who for not just 10 generations all the way back to they say but more than they would preserve their generation, they will know who is who. And they will keep the ties of kinship. Why? Because this was a healthy society, you are protected by your relatives. You are prestigious established by your relatives, everything there is no government, there is no law, there is no order, your relatives dictate your protection wherever you go. And of course, no doubt when your friends when you have a relationship with people, then is that this helps establish the ties. And so Amina decided to take this little boy to your trip. And she had with her
the one servant that it is said that Abdulmutallab gifted them when they got married. And this is only a man of the material gifted his son when they got married on me. Amen. And Amen. Amen. Unfortunately, the so little known about her, and it is sad because only a man did live a long time. And she became a Muslim. And she even lived up until after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And if only somebody had sat down with her and recorded stories, then we would have had a whole Chronicle. But Allah has his wisdom that we don't understand and know. And only a man did indeed witness all of this. And she lived all the way till the khilafah workers. She lived
until that time, but unfortunately, we don't have much stories. This is one of those stories that she's telling. So a lot of these stories they come from me because she's the only witness right? So only a man is the one telling us this story of what happened. So I'm in a travel to yesterday, which is now called Medina, along with only a man and the little boy the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was around six years old at the time. And as you all know, she they stayed there probably a few months. Again, we don't have dates, but when you travel that distance, you don't just stay to three days, you stay to three months, you get to know the tribe and the family.
And some books of Sierra do mention that the Prophet system recognized some of the buildings of Medina when he when he returned 50 years later that he recognized some of the places that he was as a child in the city of yathrib. And the profitsystem stayed there for a few months on the way back in a small little settlement, which is still present to this day. And it is called a block of what Amina herself fell ill and she passed away right then and there. And only a man had her buried by the people of the village of wa and so to this day, her grave is at a place called of what and it is reported in Sahih Muslim that on one journey when the Prophet system was returning home with the
Sahaba and the path to Mecca sorry, the path to Medina is straight ahead.
He simply diverted away from the path. He turned away from the path and started walking basically into the wilderness away from the road. They did have roads, not like our roads, but they had landmarks they know this is the road. He turns away from the road and he walks away all the Sahaba silently just walk with Him not even asking a question. Whatever the possum does Samir Know what? They're just walking with Him and the Sahaba who are narrating this, they say that the Prophet system found a grave over there and he sat down
He cried like we had never seen him cry before. Until his left here. His beard, which is my shoulders narrative, the person died a very big beard, his beard was wet with tears. And many of the Sahaba had never seen him cry before. This was the for many of those The only time that they have seen him cry, and it is narrated that we only cried publicly a number of times.
When when his son, Ibrahim died, they saw him crying. And this was the time when they saw it so much so that his beard Sall, Allahu Allah who said and became what, and part of the Sahaba did not ask one question. They didn't open their mouths, but when they saw the process of them crying, the whole congregation is crying with him. This is the love that they have. They don't even know what's happening. But they're just crying with him. And they're waiting for him to explain what is happening. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said,
I had used to forbid you from visiting graves. pause here. Initially in early Islam. The ruling had been it is not allowed to visit graves, except if you're burying the dead. You only enter the graveyard with a dead body. And then you leave and that's it.
I used to forbid you from visiting graves.
But I asked a lot to visit my mother's grave. Now he's explaining
I asked a lot permission to visit my mother's grave pause here again. The profitsystem does not take one step without a loss permission.
He even wants to get permission to go visit his mother. This is why he is a pseudo law. That's why the for the gondola, computer Sula, he, who Swan has center. That is why he is a role model that he cannot lift a finger except if Allah has allowed him to do so. So he's at he's telling the Sahaba I used to forbid you from doing so. I asked Allah permission to visit my mother's grave, and he allowed me to visit her grave. So now I am allowing you therefore, the permissibility to visit graves is from Amina IE when the process of visited Amina the permissibility that we still have in our shediac to visit graves. It is from the Prophet system wanting to visit his mother's grave,
Amina. So he said. And so he told us to visit graves because it reminds you of death. And
the fact that the Prophet system obviously is crying in this manner. I mean, we don't need to mention this is his mother, he must have memories, not maybe that many he was six years old when she passed away. But nonetheless, this was his mother. And he is crying in this fashion that the Sahaba have never seen him cry. And the Sahaba themselves are following the Sunnah and just crying with him because he is crying. So they cry as well. Really, it doesn't need to be mentioned the love that he must have felt and the pain that he must have endured at the death of Amina. And as I have said, I have searched in all of the classical works that I have about more stories from Amina, but
unfortunately, I could not find anything that is really of even a semi authentic nature. And as I said the reason for this was obvious and understood who is going to record in the privacy of communist household what she did with the Profit System, the playful times the joy, the laughing the two who's going to record all of this for us. And so this is something that we really don't have much information about. So the profits as soon as father passes away when his mother is pregnant with him, and his mother barely has two and a half years really to take care of him and nourish him because he was being taken care of by handyman as well. And then when the profitsystem is barely six
years old, he loses his mother and his father. So he is then interested to have been more potty the chieftain of the porridge. And once again, we really have hardly anything about his relationship with the Prophet system other than one or two tidbits that we have in Urbanus house that had been sold and other classical books and of what even is half mentions about this period, and he mentions it from some of the tab your own so we can say okay, the top your own, must have heard it from their fathers and grandfathers so inshallah it's a permissible to narrate these types of stories, it is said that I've done will probably would have a raised platform in front of and connected to the cab
because he's the chieftain of the whorish. We already talked about what happened when the mother was a youngster was a young man, and how he was raised to this level. And why do people respected and we already mentioned this, we already set out the motive lived a very long life over 80. So now he's already over 80 is already blind. The other motive died a blind man, he lived a very long age. So he had a raised platform that was connected to the Kaaba, and around also time when the shade would come. This platform was in that shade of the cover, and he would sit there and discuss the affairs of the corporation, the coverage would come and he's the chieftain. So this is where there's the
public platform. This is where he would sit every single
Afternoon. And of course, this is the platform that is the equivalent of the king's throne. Nobody sits on it. None of his sons none of his grandson, this is for Abdulmutallab. And the one thing that we have recorded that once the professor said him as a young boy came running, and he jumped onto the platform to be next to
his uncle's as obeyed, and others pulled him back down. Because this is you're not supposed to go there and stop them. He said, leave him. This is my child, and he can remain on this platform. So out of all of the grandchildren, the only one that he allowed to be on that platform was the Prophet Mohammed Salah la vida, he was setting them and there's one more incident that is narrated is the only two that we have from Abdulmutallab.
And that is that in one occasion, the uncles of the Prophet system sent the Prophet system to find some lost camels. And the reason why they did this according to him inside he says they've been sad, by the way is these are the two earliest references of the Seattle urbanist house that had been sad. So I'm going to say these names throughout so you should be aware of them. It has helped you all know I've been sad wrote a book called provocative and sad died around 230. So he's also very early and one of the earliest books as well of Sierra so it has happened inside can do both of them consider are considered to be the most ancient sources of the Syrah that we still have, in our times
inside mentions, the reason why his uncle's chose a little kid was probably seven, eight years old to go find the camels was because listen to this, he never did anything except that it was successful.
He was never assigned the task, except that it was a successful endeavor that he did. So now the uncles are getting desperate camels are expensive creatures. The uncles are getting desperate, and they can't find the camels. So they decide, well, this boy, whatever he does, it works. Let's go send him out alone in the desert to find the camels. And when they sent the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was delayed and coming back. And Abu Talib when he found out he was furious at them, how could you have done this? Why did you send the boy. Now of course, they sent him because they want the camels back right after Motorola was furious, and he was pacing and walking around waiting for
the process of them to come. And as soon as he came, he hugged him and he said, From now on, I will never let you out of my sight. And this shows us that he had a special care and a concern for our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As we all know, at the age of eight, once again for the third time, our processing became an orphan, first his father than his mother, and now his grandfather, one after the other. He became an orphan inside mentions in iration, slight weakness in the chain, but no problem in narrating it that one of the Sahabi said, Do you remember Abdulmutallab era sutala? Remember Abdulmutallab was the legend. Remember, this Abdulmutallab was the big guy
before the coming of the processor? He is the legend of Arabia. So they're curious, do you remember I've been Metallica, rasulillah. So he said, Yes, I remember him. And I was eight years old when he died. So this hadith clearly shows even though slightly weak, but it clearly shows the age of the Prophet system that he was eight years old when the run of the mill party passed away. And one of the things that I've done with Adam did on his deathbed is that he entrusted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to his son, abou project. And the reason of course, as we mentioned before, the only full brother that was still alive of Abdullah was a Bhupati, up who had married five wives, one after the
other. He had married five wives. And from one of them, he had a number of daughters and two sons that were still alive at this time. And that is, of course, Abdullah had passed away and then I will. So the full brother of Abdullah was a butadiene. Unlike a Buddha hub, unlike Hamza, all of these were not full brothers, they were half uncles of the prophets of the LaGuardia he was sending him. And so I will take charge of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abu Talib lives a long life and it will bother passes away when the Profit System is over 50 years old, so he remains with the profits of the law. Why did he was send them and we're going to be talking quite a lot
about him in the future. How to have a shallow data question
Why did Allah subhana wa tada
put so much trials and tribulations on the young child.
Why did Allah azza wa jal put three orphan situations three traumatic trials one after the other upon our Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them. I mean, if Allah had willed, He would have been born in the lap of luxury. If Allah had willed he could have had loving parents until he became a prophet or at least at least until he became a young man and adult, he can stand on his feet. Why did Allah subhana wa tada will? such a difficult childhood. The responses our scholars mentioned is that there's many reasons for doing so. First and foremost, like Allah says about Musa alayhis salaam in the Koran. What's funny to Colleen FC
was the one who took care of you. When everyone else had was being killed or the bunny is thrown in, right? Even your mother was forced to abandon you. I was the one who took care of you what's going on to cut enough see me to snap it so that you may be raised under my care. And it here means under the care of Eliza it under my protection. And if this is what Allah says of Moosa, then even more so for our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. Allah He was sending them that no one can say that he has a favor over the Prophet system for having done anything, Allah azza wa jal took care of our Prophet system and took this responsibility directly. Another wisdom is that, no doubt it is tough, and it
is difficult. And it is, in some sense traumatic to be an orphan. Yet at the same time, being an orphan gives you many qualities that the Prophet system would need later on in his life. being pampered and growing up in luxury is not going to prepare you for a life of sacrifice for a mission of calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala. No, not at all. But being born in a harsh environment, not having your mother and father to love you. As we all know, as parents, no one on earth can love you, like your mother and father, no one. And when our profit system is deprived of a mother and father, automatically, this makes the child more independent, it makes the child more mature, gives him
wisdom. And this these are qualities that the Prophet system would need. And this is something we notice in every orphan child, that this orphan child is much more mature than his or her peers. And it's a parallel even another thing, notice that a child born in poverty is more mature than a child born in luxury. Look, look around you, a child born in difficult circumstances, right? And somehow not to be stereotypical. But look at our own kids here in America, versus kids in third world countries and the responsibilities placed on them. And the maturity that they have at 56789. Right, this is something reality, from my own kids are good, just as guilty as yours. So don't worry, no
need to point to anybody. We're all we're all in the same boat here. Okay. We're all in the same boat here. So Pamela, you go quote, unquote, back home, and six year old children are taking care of babies. Completely, mother has to go, the mother has to work. The six year old is taking care of here in this country, I wouldn't give a 16 year old care of a baby isn't this true, right. But this is what happens. And this is something we notice in our lives. Imagine in the time of the Prophet system, there is a divine wisdom, nothing happens except that Allah has a plan behind it. So by putting the Prophet system through such difficult circumstances, this made him who he was. And he
needed to be that man, in order to be the Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also, going through these difficult times, makes you understand and experience firsthand poverty, ruthlessness, living in a harsh environment. And generally speaking, this makes you more sensitive, rather than more selfish, it is the rich, who are selfish, not the poor.
Everyone knows this, it is the rich, who are stingy, not the poor. Although look again, isn't this true? The more you have, the more stingy you become. And unless you have the more open, the more generous you are. Once again, our profit system is going through tough times in order to be compassionate in order to be merciful. And that is why there are so many a hadith about taking care of orphans. Surely brothers and sisters, don't you think that in all of these a hadith the Prophet system is also remembering himself? When he says, I know what cafeteria tea maker Martini fill agenda? I am the one who takes care of orphans will be like this agenda. When he says that when you
see an orphan, say good words to him, and put your hair Put your hand on his ear. There's a hadith like this. Put your hand through is your IE treat the orphan with love. Don't you think that our Prophet system is remembering his own childhood as well as an orphan. Our religion has it as a central pillar to take care of the orphan. And our profit system was an orphan. And therefore as a personal advice to all of you here, do a bit of a tangent will lay the least thing we can do is to find an orphan to help and to sponsor that orphan. Allah has blessed us with so much wealth in this land with so much that we have here. And our Prophet system said I am the one who takes care of an
orphan or like this engender, somehow they don't you want to be like this with the profits as of right next to him. And Allah has blessed us with so much find out there are so many programs that take care of orphans, and all you need is 3040 $50 a month. Well, like we spend more on coffee and on our television sets than we do on this and there are people around the world. There are legitimate organizations that I cooperate with and others are known to be legitimate, that you go and find an orphan in your home country.
And find out how many I can help and make it a part of your life that from now on, I'm going to follow exactly what our Prophet says. And of course, our Oran as well mentions that, taking care of the team, and preferring the team over yourself. And therefore, by going through this traumatic time, our profit system developed that fondness, that softness, that mercy, that tenderness for not just orphans, but all those who are weak, and this is a necessary requirement for being a profit. Another benefit of this is that this facilitated the profit systems being raised in the bedroom side, so that he could become the most eloquent of the Arabs. And it is well known that the prophets
of the Law Center spoke the best Arabic And in fact, there is a headache to this regard as well. But Allah has blessed me with the most succinct the most precise of all speech, will tee to jomi. I'll tell him, I have been given the most profound speech. What is Joe ami, I'll call him, Joe. And Kelly means a small phrase can be explained and understood in hundreds of hours, a little bit of a phrase and there's much meaning there's much profundity in it. And so Allah azza wa jal chose this for profit system for all of these reasons. The final story that will mention we have only 10 minutes left. The final story that we'll mention is the story of the famous story that we have, that our
Prophet sallallahu Sallam took a journey to Syria. Now this is a story that we need to give a little bit of academic detail to.
Firstly, what is the story in a nutshell, the story which is mentioned in one book, I've had a son and a Timothy, realized brothers and sisters, most of the Sierra is not mentioned in the books of Headey, it is mentioned in abundance health inside these other books, a different genre. And the standards of those books, generally speaking, are lower, as we explained, and we'll explain a little bit now as well. The standards of authenticity are one degree less. The books of Hadith are the most strict Bukhari Muslim, Abu Timothy Anissa, even larger mustard numbers on a daily me, these are the Omaha's, these are the mother books, we call them, our religion is based upon them, our theology,
our fifth, our legal our ethics is based upon these 789 books with the mortar in my magic around these basically eight or nine books. The books of Sierra are a level beneath this in terms of authenticity.
And that is why a lot of the incidents of the Sierra are not as authentic, if you like as our Hadeeth in our theology, but we have no problems narrating them because so what if it's slightly weak, it tells us the historical detail, not no big deal. Sometimes, however, we get into problems and this story is one of them. So we have to go into a little bit of academic detail what is the story, it is mentioned that when the Prophet system was still young, it says he had not yet reached puberty. So we can say 11 or 12.
I will thought it took him on a journey to Syria.
And this book, the Hadith, and Timothy says along with Abu Bakar, and Bilal, and they passed by, on their way to Syria, a monastery where a monk used to live who would never give them the time of day. And his name was O'Hara. This time when they with the prophets of the law while he was setting them. They said that, for the first time O'Hara came out, searching for them, and greeting them and inviting them all back to his house for a feast. And when they told when they asked him, Why are you doing this? He said you have in your midst a boy meaning the prophets Allah said them who will become a prophet. He said that I saw the clouds shelter him. And I saw that the trees
also sheltered him and that the stones prostrated to him. And so he's told me to take care of him. And while they were sitting there, eating the feast, they saw seven Roman soldiers, seven Roman soldiers appear. And the soldiers allegedly are trying to find the prophet who is going to come and capture him and kill him. But Hara hit them and told the soldiers to basically made an excuse they went away, and then we'll hire a toll booth to take back him immediately to Mecca. So the Prophet system was sent back with a worker and we'll add immediately to MK now, this is the story in a nutshell, and it is narrated in some basic form in Timothy, and of course, it had been his half and
others and most of the scholars of our tradition have basically accepted it at face value, including Timothy even hedger, and Hakeem and others. However, some of our more critically minded scholars a little bit more
verifying and ascertaining such as Amanda Hubby, the famous Amanda Debbie said
Has it been Katia, the historian, there's also a famous scholar Ebensee, the nuts and others, they said something's wrong about the story. Something is wrong about this story. And of those who critiqued it the most is a man with a happy moment they're happy is one of the greatest chroniclers and historians of the seventh century, and he is a student of cheerfulness, m&t me as well. Remember that hubby. And this, by the way shows that he has a critical mind that, that he's not going to just accept something at face value. And this is the hallmark of an intellectual of an academic. But you don't just believe everything you hear? Think about it. See, does it make sense or not? In our
times, I'll tell you, I'm from academia, as you know, as I've studied in academia as well, this is a whole genre, if you like, or a whole methodology of modern study, and it is called historical criticism that you cannot just take the books of history and then take them at face value, read through dissect, compare, think, is it possible or not, don't just accept anything like this. And this applies to our tradition into every tradition. And Mr. Miyagi says, How can this story be true?
aboubaker was not even it was just a kid at the time. And why would he go on a caravan with Ableton? I will because not directly related to the process of why would I have taken as for Bilaal, he hasn't even been born yet.
Well, that has not even been born yet. And he was not acquired by Abu Bakar until after Islam. How did bill all come into the picture? And then he goes on? And he said, why would the trees shelter him? When according to the report, the clouds are already sheltering him? Why would the trees also then shelter him? And then he said, Why don't we find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam reminding us of this incident when he became a prophet, he said, Don't you remember when I was a kid didn't go higher? Tell us that I will become a prophet. Why are you rejecting me? Why did the courage find it problematic that he became a prophet, when apparently Bill Hader announces to the
world that he's going to become a prophet? In fact, why did he himself not understand what was going on? When Jubilee came to him and Avada Hara, and he went running to Haiti, just saying what happened? I don't know. He should have been waiting for the time. And he's told jabril Welcome. You're so late. I've been waiting the last 35 years for you. Why is he Why is he himself? Not? You know, certain? Why is he confused? Why is he scared? Why is he terrified? He comes to her. Did you see what happened? I don't understand. Khadija has to take him to whatever cause we're going to talk about each other in a few weeks. And what he has to explain this is the jury, this is the most This
is the the one who comes to to move center Isa, why why why why all of these questions about now question arises, okay, well, maybe there's some some, some scholars have said, okay, banana Bucher are incorrect details. But then let's accept the rest of the story. Two points here.
Firstly, the same story that says we don't know but could also says the rest of why are you picking and choosing what to take in and leave? Secondly, this is the reason why someone like myself, really, I have to say the story should not be mentioned except to clarify that it's not authentic. The problem that comes with this story is that most of the non Muslim historians and researchers have found this missing link that they were looking for in this story. And they said, aha, look. This is where the Prophet Mohammed said them acquired all of his information about Jews and Christians, because you have to realize there was no information about Judaism and Christianity in
Makkah. There were no Jews and Christians living in Makkah. There were no libraries in Mecca. There were no Old Testaments and New Testaments, the Arabs did not record the stories of use of and, and and Moosa and Jesus is not relevant to the Arabian culture, right? The Quraysh have nothing to do with Moses and Jesus, and of course, not Abraham, but it's how, and the very is how the money is right? Correct. Right? This is a lost history for them. And the Profit System comes along, and this is a question that to this day, they don't have a good answer to. He comes along in the middle of a jahi environment, completely uneducated, and he begins reciting the histories of people that were
not his own.
And there is no University there is no education. He himself is an illiterate man. There are no books in Makkah, where did he get it from? And Allah mentions this in the Koran. makuta Tomoko Blimey kitabi what are the hope to be a medic? You didn't choose to recite novels before you didn't used to write books before. Where'd you get this from? Allah says in the Quran, she'll come in and buy Arabian Oh, hey, Ma, Quinta, Allah Maha Antigua como como cabaret. hada these are the stories you tell to your people. You didn't know this before. Neither you nor your people. makuta mo Ha. You didn't know these stories. learn torah when we neither you nor your people knew these stories. So
when this bahariya story comes along, Orientalism
And this is what they do almost all non Muslim scholars who study Islam, they say, Aha, this is where he must have gotten his permission. Now, even if the story is authentic, this is ludicrous. The Prophet system is 11 years old. He's barely sitting half an hour, one feast, one, one event, right? How could you go off. So even this we say is ludicrous. Even if the story is true, your theory doesn't make any sense with an 11 year old kid memorize all of this information, encyclopedic information in a 20 minute conversation or even conversation and then regurgitate it 40 years later, it doesn't make sense. But we don't even have to go that far. Because we say look, even our own
scholars such as such as, say, the NASA and others, they have pointed out that this story doesn't make sense. And the moment that he himself said, this story I feel is fabricated. He said, I feel this story is fabricated. And this is something that we need to be very cautious and careful about that this is a whole other topic altogether. And that is a fabrication of Hadeeth. Unfortunately, throughout our history, people many of them are sincere minded. Love to just fabricate things about their religion. Why they have their reasons. Some of them had evil reasons, but many of them have good reasons. So one person fabricated lots of a hadith about the Koran. There's a very famous
fabricated Hadith about every single surah has a blessing. The blessing of Bukhara Is this the blessing of Allah and Rhonda says the blessing of of Nisa is this every sooner and when Mr. Medina is finally captured this fabricator, so how could you do this? How could you fabricate about the book of Allah? He said, Oh, I found the people getting busy in in fifth Clinton. And in books of history, I wanted them to go back to the Quran. So fabricated something, maybe they read the Quran because of it. So he has some. Now by the way, in those days, they were interested in the books of fish, he wants them to go to the Quran. Imagine if you know the Muslims of our times, they only go
to Bollywood and Hollywood not even imagine what people would do in our times. The point being, throughout history, there have been people who for whatever reasons, they have wanted to just fabricate. And this is why there's a whole science called the science of Eddie's it's a very detailed, it's a very structured science. This was my speciality in my undergraduate in Medina, I've studied from the College of Hadeeth. And it is a four year program that we had, we went over how do you tell an authentic lead from an inauthentic one, a sigh hear from a very from a fabricator. So whole specialization. So we have to understand that when it comes to the Syrah a lot of people they
just because of emotionalism, because of this and that, they wish to just add things that are not found in the earliest books, right. And I already gave an example. In the last halaqa, the one the Prophet system was born, he had his fat finger raised to the sky that he fell into says there in front of Allah, this and that will let you listen to it and it doesn't make sense. And you don't find it in the earliest books. You find it in books written 900 hedgerow. How did this guy find out what the process was, you know he was born, right? This is fabrication, you have these stories that the Prophet system did not have a shadow. Right? You don't find this individual. You don't find
this. Inside, you find this once again, the people they want to exaggerate, we don't need to exaggerate our Prophet system is the best human being. And what we know about him is enough to tell us that when we put these stories in will lie we give our religion a bad name. When people look at it, what type of religion is this what type we don't need to do this. Allah has told us what we need to know. And in the authentic blessings of our Prophet system, there is plenty that we can stick to. We don't need to resort to these pseudo fables and these legends and it's a disservice to us it will harm our religion and our profit system is not in need of it. So in my opinion, and independent of
it, there have been others this story about the monk and Bo Hara. It doesn't make sense. Logically, it doesn't make sense even think about it. If Hira had truly said to Abu Talib, that this is going to be the Prophet of the Arabs Surely, thought it would not have found it strange. Surely he wouldn't have told the Prophet system Why are you preaching this message? Surely the Quran when they would have found out about it again, it's common sense it's not something that it makes sense that this occurred and therefore Allah knows best but this story does appear to be weak. inshallah with this it is time for the that we have a few minutes for questions. like to point out this is the last
pseudo class before Ramadan. I'll not be in Memphis for most of July coming back end of July. We'll have some programs for Ramadan inshallah of Ramadan, preparing Ramadan before Ramadan inshallah and then we will resume after Ramadan in Ramadan inshallah, we have a lot of things planned. inshallah we'll have every day. Of course, there are we
have sealed lecture every single day inshallah, about the recitation that we've done between the photocard we'll have a little bit of tafsir inshallah, lots of programs during Ramadan
There's a grand fundraiser, which we have very, very humbled. Allah blesses speakers coming. We have Mr. Mr. Raj Raj confirmed hamdulillah coming to Memphis and then we have chef Abdul Karim, gosh, who is the most famous reciter of the Quran in North America. And he won the World competition of Quran recitation in Makkah. He won that competition a few years ago. He became he's basically one of the top parties of the world. And he's now living in America hamdulillah. I have a good friendship with him. So I convinced him to come with us on that same night. We're having a major event on that night, Mr. Mr. Roger Hodge and she'll have the record Mr. Gooch, you're going to be coming for that
evening. Unfortunately, a public good is not going to be for the whole month, I wish but just for that one night to be here. So that's going to be a big event. As for Syrah, we will resume as we said, after Ramadan, and we're going to talk about the remainder of the pre Prophethood of the Prophet system, his marriage to Khadija other incidents that occurred the rebuilding of the Kaaba, all this will resume after the month of Ramadan is in the law, he tada any questions that we have before the end?
So there's an ayah in the Quran that says Wilma, you are the anti corrupt behavior.
There's an ayah that says that whoever turns away from the remembrance of Allah, that Allah azza wa jal will then basically allow a shade bond to become a buddy in this arena is not the current mentioned the Hadeeth. This current is not the current mentioned in the Hadith. And Allah knows best but this padeen seems to be more evil or more powerful than the other cutting, because the other padeen we are supposed to fight him. And it is not that difficult to find him seeking refuge in a law and spitting on the left saying, I will be law, these types of things, we can fight that cutting us for this one, Allah says those who turn away from my remembrance, then we will basically allow
the shaitaan to become his body. So this type of budding, it means that when a person has left the remembrance of Allah and the worship of Allah, the angels no longer surround him and his associates around him, his spiritual abilities only become the Shelton. So that is not the same as this editing with the process. Some said when the child is born shaitaan assigns a buddy, but he literally music companion, or a music companion, we know that we have angels who are also our companions, funny as they write myofilament, Atlanta de rocky bonati, we know that their angels are also recording. And they are Shelton as well. This is Allah azzawajal has assigned and allowed for this to occur and
allow a lot of data where there's any questions, sisters,
can shavon cause depression shaytan has many tactics that he uses. And one of them is to cause a type of what you would call depression. Because the purpose of shavonne is to get you away from the worship of Allah. And he uses any means necessary. And one of the things that takes a person away from the worship of Allah is basically to be so mentally engrossed in a problem in a Muslim, that they just sit there and they sulk, and they don't do anything. And there is no question that a lot of these mental diseases, a lot of them, either they are caused by or they are exacerbated, made worse by shaytaan. I have no question that this is the case. And I firmly believe that even many of
the psychological and psycho psychiatric diseases in my humble opinion, they are caused by shaitan. And that is why people of eemaan automatically can battle these emotions more than people without demand. In other words, when you have faith, and by the way, this isn't just even Islamic faith, even for example, a christian right who's loves his God and what not such a person overall is optimistic they had a survey done. study done, generally speaking, religious people are more optimistic than people without religion, because Allah created us to be religious right? Generally speaking, religious people have a better outlook on life, and they get over calamities and problems
better. Now, we would say when you're Muslim, even better than this, right? And when you have email even better than this, so all of this Yes, indeed. shaitaan does use any tactic any means necessary, and one of them is to have these psychological problems.
How can you overcome that? The same way you overcome religious laxity the same way you overcome a softening of the heart the same way you overcome not having a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost increase your ibadah doing a bada automatically links you to Allah increase in Quran increase in vehicle increase in sada these are the main actions are rewarded that bring about immediate spiritual satisfaction. Secondly, as well knowledge, knowledge as well brings about an understanding of the deen and that is why even for example, this knowledge I mean, this is not me saying this this is the Koran saying when you have in your demand goes up, right? And I am sure that
every one of you just by listening to these these talks not because I'm giving them but because it's about our profit system, your demand goes up. Right so simply having a knowledge of the religion as well making sure that you say all of the necessary of God to protect yourself from shape on when you leave the house when you enter the house. When you eat food when you go to sleep when you wake up, there's a whole routine. And the more you perfect your guard, the less if you like power that you're done has over you and our processes and I'm said that they could have a law. remembering Allah is a protected fortress is known how seen that protects you from shavon It's a pretty imagine having
fortifications and walls and barriers. That's what the code of Allah does. When you have the code of Allah you have a his known Halcyon, which is a double fortress is a protected fortress. So all of these things they help us of course, obviously due to Allah azza wa jal, we're in millions of unaccompanied children and has grown faster it's below that when shavon throw something into your heart nuzzle This is the naza when children throw something into your heart first started Billa seek refuge in Allah subhana wa tada and also by the way for depression, what not one of the one of the simplest cures as well is to hang around righteous Muslims, that to be alone not to be sulking to be
in social company of righteous people who will remind you of Allah and bring you closer to him and with this inshallah we will conclude and open the floor make the floor for that was that Kamala Harris said I'm ready. Law what Okay, what is the announcement again?
