In this video, Shaykh Yasir delves on the various other ways in which the Quraysh sought to oppose the message of the Prophet ﷺ and his quest for the propagation of Islam. Chief among these was putting a ban on the recitation of the Qur’an and advocating numerous ways to stop it from being heard by the people.another way was to to ridicule the Prophet ﷺ and his believers.
We also gather insight on the famous story wherein the three leaders of Quraysh went in secret to hear the recitation of the Prophet ﷺ. It makes for an interesting listen and is not to be missed.
The narration of the famous incident of outright bribery that transpired in connection with Utbah ibn Rabi’ah is up for discussion and numerous details come to the fore. Utbah was from the Banu Hashim and was a man of wisdom and he was a distant cousin of the Prophet ﷺ. Major lessons in facing trials can be inculcated through this story and should be listened to fully fathom the greatness of our Prophet ﷺ even in such trying circumstances and not leaving the side of Islam even for a second.
And number two is 100 second acrovyn, these two verses came down. And when these two verses came down, that was when the Prophet system was commanded to go public. That was when he had to go public. And we said a number of things began immediately of them is they tried to convince a butadiene and then they tried to block the DAO indirectly, and then they had a showdown with Abu Talib. Right. We all mentioned this last week. Now we're continuing, what else did they do in order to prevent the prophetic message from being taught to others. The third thing that we'll mention
is that they tried to ban the recitation of the Quran. in public, they tried to make it that if the Quran will recited, they will drown it out with their voices, or they would not even allow it to be recited. Even abus mentions that whenever the Prophet system raised his voice for the Quran in front of the Kaaba, the Quraysh would began shouting and yelling and screaming and
cursing, the one who revealed it or the villa, and the one upon whom it was revealed. With a villa cursing him, there would be only a soup Buddha who they would they would curse him and try to drown out the voice of the Koran, and they would not allow anyone to listen to the Koran, and therefore even a buzzer if somebody wanted to listen to the Quran, he would have to pretend as if he's not listening, and try to hear the Quran over the din of the kurush yelling and screaming. And that was when Allah revealed in accordance with Israel, verse 110, that Allah says that when I teach how to be salata, cola to hoffa, Bihar, Roberta Lee been at Attica sebelah that do not say loudly, the
Quran, do not say it loudly. And do not say it in a whisper. But say it in a moderate voice. Why? Because the Prophet system wanted to raise his voice above the voice of the crush, and the power of Allah said, No, that's not gonna when you recite the way you're supposed to, you recite the way you're supposed to ignore that didn't ignore that shouting and yelling and screaming, you do what you're supposed to, and the Dow will spread. And once the companions came together in the House of Commons, we'll talk about commercial law. In our next lesson, they came together in the house of an outcome and they said, No one has recited the Quran in public other than the Prophet system, who is
going to volunteer so somehow the law, no one had the courage to recite the Quran in public. It was banned basically, no one had recited the Quran in public who's gonna volunteer. And so even Massoud said, I volunteer.
They said, or even Massoud will want somebody else because Who can tell me why?
He's not one of the Quran. She's not even oroshi right? Forget it. He's not even McKee. Jani Aslan, he's not even from the Quraysh. He is from where the Yemeni tribes, right? So they said, Oh, even Masood, we don't want you because you don't have family members to help you and protect you. You don't have an Sheila, you don't have a tribe. And basically, as we said, over and over again, everything in that time is based upon lineage, everything we need to understand, just like in our times, the American passport abroad. As for Muslims in America, there's a different story. But abroad, the American passport is supposed to withhold something, right? If a If a government stops
you, you say hey, whoa, I'm an American, careful. You pull out the passport. These are protection. So in those days, you're kurachi. You have that protection, or your bedroom or zoom or your bedroom.
Hashem, whoever you are, even Masaru there's nobody. He's a Yemeni, he's not a quarter sheet. So they said, No, no, no, we don't want you we want somebody else. Even Massoud said, No, I'm the one who wants to do it. He volunteers and he said I put my trust in Allah Allah Allah protect me Subhana Allah, this is even Masood COVID Massoud is the one whom the Prophet says Adam said, if you want to read the Quran, as it was revealed, then we take it from a bit map that is even Massoud right. Dumb furrion comma aanzien, Yanni fresh and ripe as it was revealed if you want to recite the Quran properly, even mustard is the one take the Koran from these four and able to service them. Even
mustard is the one who says I have taken more than 70 sutras directly from the professor's mouth to my mouth. I don't have anybody else's Quran teacher, more than 70 students I talk so you must route is an expert in Koran and his passion. And so he goes No, I want to do this right. And he has every right to because of who he is in terms of his Koran, and satis with the Quran, and so they said okay, if you are insisting then go so he began, he went to Mecca. The next morning, he went to the cab, excuse me, he went to the cabinet the next morning when the people had gathered, you know that this was there.
The cab was basically their place of socialization. When they finished their chores. When they finished their buying and selling, there was the time they would all just sit in the shade. And they would just gossip and chitchat. This was their version of the coffee shop, right? This was imageless in front of the cab. So this was where everybody sat in the afternoon in the time when they sat. So even Mr. Ruud went at that time, and he stood at the McCormick board on him. And he began reciting in a loud, beautiful voice it and even Massoud had the voice of a party. He was the party of the Sahaba. He was the party of the Sahaba he began reciting in a beautiful voice Sugata Rahman, one of
the early suitors, right, and one of the most beautiful sewers. And it was so beautiful people began gathering around him to listen, people get began gathering around him to listen. And one of them said, What is this that he's reciting? And he's reciting to our and the Quraysh had never heard this type of flour. They had never seen this type of data, realize that the whole science of our of Tajweed it is specific to the Quran. The Arabs didn't choose to speak in owners in Madrid, right? They're not speaking the way that the Quran is recited the whole art of de Lauer and the words of the Quran, all of it is to a different level, all of it. And so they're not used to this type and it
is mesmerizing. So we must read big begins to devour the people come around him. And they begin talking because he's not answering he's reciting. And so they begin talking What is this? This is what interesting. What is he reciting? One of them finally says, Oh, this is what Mohammed has claimed has been revealed to him solo s&m. This is now the hora. Now the cat is let out of the bag. Oh, this is what mustard is reciting. So immediately, some of them pounced on him. Others are wanting to listen, some of them pounced on him, and began beating him and taking their shoe off and hitting him because he is not a karate, nobody's gonna defend him. Nobody is going to defend him. He
is by himself. And they continue to physically beat him until he could not continue reciting. He wasn't able to finish two pages of sort of man, he wasn't able to finish that. And he came back, bloodied and battered and bruised. And the Sahaba said, Well, he had them I couldn't Australia, this is exactly what we were worried about. That's why we didn't want you to go and do this. And even Mr. Rhodes said, we'll law he after today. Nothing has increased other than my contempt for the kurush. And I'm willing to go do this again tomorrow. COVID just challenged me I've got to do this tomorrow, right? I've only increased in my contempt, and how could you have done this? And and, and, and stoop
to this level? I want to do this again tomorrow. And so the Sahaba said, caffeic Enough, enough is enough. We didn't expect you and you've done enough to distress them. They have heard the Quran, and you have caused them to be distressed. And of course, you all know the famous story that it is half mentioned, anthropology and others mentioned the famous story of the three leaders of the kurush, Abu jihad,
Abu sufian, and an atlas initiative,
Abu Jamal, Sofia and anachronous, these three words of the seniors and elders that because the Quran is not being recited publicly, and yet they've heard bits and pieces, they have been mesmerized by it. And so they have a desire to listen to it. But you can do it in public. So when did they do it? You all know the story that it is an authentic story that because the profitsystem would pray to her dude every morning, and in tahajud, he would raise his voice with the Koran. And he would recite it. And of course, remember, this is a small society, a peaceful village, you don't have the traffic noise, you don't when the Prophet system is reciting in his house at 3am, the neighbors will hear if
they want to read you say dead of the night. It's that type of society, small village, as I said, less than 1000 people in Mecca and it's dead quiet at three 4am. So when he's in his house reciting the Quran, at that time, you have the opportunity to listen from outside. And so it so happened that as we said, an Atlantis Abu sufian and Abuja has these three, they bumped into one another at fudger, because that's what the process of them stopped reciting. Right? They bumped into one another at fudger. And they all three realize that there's only one reason they're outside at 4am. Right in close to the process themselves, and that is to listen to the Koran. And they all tried to
make an excuse, and they this and that. But inside, they all know the reason but they don't want to admit it, right. The second night, the same thing happens. And they again, bump into one another. And so they're all listening from a different alleyway because their houses might be in different areas. But when they're going home and they're returning, they go down the main alleyway and they bump into one another again when the process of them stops, right. So they're mesmerized up until basically the prefetcher as you know, 200 last until that time, so in the process of them stops, they then returned home and once again. So then they say okay, we're not going to do this again. But
for the third time it happens and they're so embarrassed. They say, look, if the people here that we're doing this will lose respect in their eyes. Let us
Make a promise to Allah. We're not going to come and listen to the Quran again. Now before we move on to this rewire, I want you to understand
what passion will motivate a person to get out of bed at three, four in the morning, and to walk to somebody else's house to listen and stand in darkness, and the chill of the night complete, you leave your bed to go listen to the recitation. And it also parallel one of the things that I pray that Allah blesses me and all of you with We always love to hear the beautiful Quran, the Quran, my favorite is prosody. And matcha when Abdullah Boston whenever you like a fancy, like, Can you imagine
those who are fortunate to listen to the Prophet Mohammed Muslims voice? Can you imagine how that would have moved them? Right? If these people move us and they are basically normal coura you know, can you imagine the voice and the tilava of Rasulullah sysm himself and I sincerely make dua to Allah that one day he allows me to listen to that to our and to all of you in shallow to Allah. So the tilava coming from the the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Can you imagine any what what emotions would be playing? So for these three men and they're all elders, they're all in their 50s right? They're all people to leave bed and to come and stand outside to listen to the to that with
the process and it is something that they cannot do in public, they have to do in private. And so they make a promise to Allah. Okay, that's it, if we are discovered is going to be a big embarrassment. So let us keep this secret. The next morning, the morning of the fourth day, in a pub. Ron is reported on us came to Abu sufian and he said to avoid soufiane what was Sofia and what is your opinion about what we heard? What is your opinion about Sofia is embarrassed that he goes first to tell me your opinion? Well, I like kids like kids because he's too embarrassed. You know? First you tell me yours then I'll tell you mine. Right? I'm not gonna say it until you say it. This
is Abu Sofia, because Abu sufian is the most sympathetic of the three and above Sophia will be the one who accepts Islam the earliest right this is abusive. Yeah. So you can tell automatically Something is happening. As for an illness, people have different Did you accept Islam or not one opinions that he accepted to some we don't know much about anonymous What happened to him? Of course, Abuja is Abuja, which is the founder of the oma. So Allah has goes to Abu sufian. And he asks about Sophia, what did you think of the recitation was? First you tell me that I'll tell you. So an athlete says, well, law he it seems to be a hack the truth seems to be the truth. I've also
found is embarrassed to admit fully. And so he says to us, some of what he said, I understood everything, and others was beyond my comprehension. In other words, he didn't give a correct opinion. He basically said it was so eloquent. I understood certain words and I didn't understand other words, right. So he gave a wishy washy answer. He gave a vague answer. He didn't gave his full opinion, of course, his full opinion, he knows this the truth. Eventually he accepts Islam, but for now, he goes, Well, my opinion is this. He's being abusive. And by the way, he's a politician. Right? His son is malware, and they found it the Omega dynasty, okay. This is this is he's, he does
not want any slip to come out. He's guarding. You have to be a politician. I mean this in a positive way, because you have good politicians as well. And as even hedger says, the best politician or the best King, the oma has ever seen his malware, because he's a Sahabi. Okay, so we have nothing but praise from where are we at his father was Sofia, but he's a politician. So he doesn't want any phrase to be spread, even accidentally, so he doesn't give his full opinion. He said something, what I heard was good and other things I didn't understand. He gives a wishy washy answer. Then anachronous goes to Abuja.
And he says, oh, Abuja I want to know your honest opinion about what we heard. What is the verdict, because a lot of us thinks this is the truth, he's moved. And so he goes to Abuja, he would try was Abuja from
zoom, but numazu, right,
also vanished from the Omega tribe. And so these three are the main tribes of the Horus, you have to know this by now, the bedroom of zoom, and that's Abu Jamal. That's hardly worried. These are Muslims. And then you have the umayyads. And then the bedroom a year. And of course, they become the oma years later on. And then you have the value hash, you have more than this, but these are the three main ones that we are interested in for this either in particular. So Abu sufian is the leader of the the new Muslim, the Abu jihad is the leader of a one of the leaders. He's not the main leader, one of the leaders of the blue Muslim, he's one of the tall guys are the big guys of the
Mundo Muslim, the elites of the Muslim. So he goes to Abuja, he says, what did you think? And Abu Jamal says, and this is now he is coming clean, about why he doesn't accept Islam. And he just says the same thing to another person who converted to Islam, and he tells us the same same statement. So we have this from two different
People exactly what Abuja has Abuja says Abuja has says, The bathroom enough the Banu Hashim, because manuf is the grandfather, the bedroom enough and us, we have always been in competition with one another.
when they began to give food to the pilgrims, we also began to give food. When they began to give water, we began to give water to the pilgrims. Because the bundle as we said, many, many months ago, the bedroom enough, they excelled in hospitality. And so they became the most noble of the sub tribes of the kurush. Whenever they did something, the bottom of zoom had to follow suit, okay. And so when they gave water, we also started giving water. When they showed the bravery, we showed bravery, when they had the flag of battle, we had the flag of battle, until finally, we were like two horses about to get to the finish line can follow us at home, it's just about to get to the
finish line. We're battling, you know, right at the end of the race. And now they come and they tell us they have a prophet, whom Allah inspires from the heavens, how can we compete with that?
How can we win the race, and so will law he as long as I live, I will never accept to
notice his responses honest, honest, that the reason I cannot follow him is because he is my competitor, right? Because he doesn't have the truth, right? Because I am from the numazu. And he is from the bedroom enough for the bedroom Hashem. And we have always been trailing behind them. Now a five minute admitted and again, it goes back to God knows snobbery, arrogance, my lineage, my father and grandfather. It all goes back to that right. So Pamela even Abu Talib had the same reason he couldn't accept Islam, you understand how much this was a part of their culture. And so as we said, one of the tactics was to try to prevent the recitation of the Quran and Allah mentions this as well
that when they hear the Quran, they say to another, l o v. Lando, compared to the bone that you just start murmuring, started shouting so that you will overcome the Quran. And Allah says, You're never going to be able to do that. So this was the third tactic we mentioned. The fourth tactic was to ridicule the Prophet system, and the believers to say things about them to make others laugh at them to make others scoff them. And this is, of course, the general methodology of all the people who oppose the truth, even in our times, how they ridicule Islam, and how they ridicule what Muslim cultures might do. They'll make fun of it. And they'll just give us a racist joke about Islam. This
is common to this time. And so many reports are reported here, once the Prophet system did not receive any new revelation for a number of weeks or a number of months. And so one of the ladies of the courage perhaps it was the wife of Abuja, we don't know what are the ladies of the crush, mocked him in front of him and said that, I see that your shavon has abandoned you.
Meaning jabril I see that your shavon has abandoned you because you haven't decided anything new. And so the profitsystem really felt hurt at this man. He felt aggrieved. And at this, Allah subhana wa tada revealed, we'll have one lady that Sasha ma with dakara buco, emark, Allah, your Lord has neither abandon you, nor showing you any anger or hostility, nor has he left you
committed, and the future is going to be better for you then, then the present. And this means the future in this world and the future in the next world. Be patient. He was greatly grieved when one of the women is mocking him. It's part of his human nature. When somebody makes fun of you. How about an elderly lady making fun of you, he really felt hurt at this. And so a lot calmed him down, and a lot consoled him and said, what are
what so for your ticker book, a photographer, and you will be given until you are content to be patient, and the pseudo goes on. And I have given a hold about the Sudan. And we talked about that sort of in that.
Also, especially Abuja, especially Abuja, who would go out of his way,
and personally, try his best to smear the religion. If the person were a person of status, he would make fun of him. And if you were a person of lowliness, you would get physical with him. And if it were a person of status, you would go and tell him, how can you leave the religion of your forefathers? Was your father worse than you? Or are you better than your father? Again, this was a common Arab thing, your father and your grandfather must be better than you. So they asked him bluntly, are you better than your father and grandfather? And they mentioned whoever was their grandfather, the famous founder of the tribe, whether it's Muslim, whether it's always here, whether
it's monopoly, or you better than them, or are they better than you, and he would try to boycott them, and not engage in trade with them. And if you're weak, you would physically intimidate them, and one of the stories mentioned by Urbanus Hawk in his sealer, one of the stories mentioned is that once someone did not pay Abuja, hell, sorry, someone purchased something from Abuja. Someone purchased something from Abuja and refused to pay him the amount of wages
did not pay him. And he kept on stalling and stalling and stalling. And so one day when this man came, and he wanted to get his money back, Abuja, he said he wasn't from the chorus. He didn't know all of this, which I said to him, go to Mohammed Salim. And he will get it for you. He will get it for you, He will give it to you. So he said it to him as basically a joke, you know, go to Mohammed and he's gonna give him the money back. Right? So the man came, and he didn't know what's happening. He didn't know that this is just a joke, right? The man came to the house knocked on it told him that, you know, Abuja owes me money. And this is the amount and he's told me to come and collect it
from you. Because of what the idea was, was that the promises of mine Oh, boo gehele money. So instead of giving it back to Abuja, give it to the man. So you understand the point there. There's a debt here. So the man thought you must owe Abuja money instead of giving him the money, give it back to me, I'll take it. So the profitsystem said, Don't worry, I will get your money back for you. I will get your money back for you. He took the man by the hand and he walked right then in there to the house of Abuja, and he knocked on the door and when the door opened, which I was shocked to see the profit system with this man, you know, and the professor said to him, yeah, about Jehan give the
man his money back now. Abuja had his face changed to complete white. And he began trembling, and he rushed back home and he handed a whole bag that year without even counting. He just threw it at the man and they said, here go. And so the man did not understand. He thought, Okay, well, Abuja was right that he would get my money back. He got my money, but the man went his way. Later on Abuja, his friend came and said, How could you have given the man his money when you kept on refusing and when the process that I'm asked, or Mohammed asked, you gave it to him? He said, I saw behind him. I saw behind him what you didn't see right behind the Prophet system, right. I saw behind that what
you did not see that terrified me. According to one report, he saw a herd of angry camels waiting to pounce on him. And this is of course, Allah ziani miracle, he saw a herd of angry camels and camels can get very angry and nasty, right, waiting to pounce on him and his flesh just changed because he knows these are not human capital and our regular camels, right? He knows this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So his face changes us throws him his whole wallet, because call us go this is your money and go. So of course here is a Buddha who trying to smear the profit or loss of them, and in fact, the opposite happened. Another tactic the fifth tactic is false accusations, not just
joking, but slander, not just throwing these pranks, but downright outright lies. And here's where the correlation of course they went, they stoop to a level they had never stoop to before. And they began to lie about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The Quran mentions three or four or five of their particular lies. And what is amazing is that to this day, every non Muslim who rejects Islam has to say one of these lies about the Prophet system, he cannot get out of the same lies that I mentioned in the Quran. So of these lies waipuna in the hula Majnoon he's crazy. Even though the Quran knew the process is not crazy, right? Fuck a little bit of wiggle room for that afternoon. The
Quran says I live the whole lifetime amongst you, you know me, can't you think you know me who I am. And so they say he is crazy of them. They say he is a captain. Fortune Teller of them they say he is a PSA hit one out of volume one into Tiburon, Allahu La Jolla masura. He's either Asahi or a Muslim or they can even make up their minds. Sometimes he is the magician. And sometimes magic has been done on him. Right? What what both of these accusations are given? And to this day, those people who reject Islam they have to say some things like this. And the most common understanding that most academics who are not Muslims have is that the Prophet system was deluded into thinking he is a
prophet, which is a type of madness. You think you're hearing voices? Right? And it is impossible for a man to be crazy in one area, and completely seen in every other area, as a family man as a, as a person of a leader as this and that everything else is completely top notch. And yet in one area. They say he must have been here because they cannot doubt his sincerity. He was sincere in his message. They know it. How can you be sincere when you're not telling the truth? Whether you think you're telling the truth? How can you think you're telling me the truth when you God is speaking to you? This is your imagination. Right? And they accused him of being a poet. And this is standard to
this day. He was a marvelous poet. They say he had a command of the Arabic but Allah tells us in the Koran. I lived 40 years before this. I never wrote any book. What I hope to be a minute is a lotta been moved on. I never wrote any poetry. Before this. I was not known for poetry and the process until the day he passed away. He
Hardly mentioned any lines of poetry, perhaps two or three lines of poetry ever crossed his mouth, right? And occlusion mahalo Allah have to do as the whole coalition called it a bit, that the most one phrase, he, in fact, according to one scholar is it had been hijacked. He said, Never did the profitsystem give a full couplet of poetry, you know, Arabs have couplets. You have rhyming, you know, they have the two halves of a sentence right. couplet never did the process of giving a whole couplet of poetry, only one half of it at max. And if you look at the sealer, it seems to be the case. So the process will never get poetry. And yet when the Koran comes out, it is beyond what they
can understand. And the main story that I want every one of us to know and memorize is the story of the is the story of unbelievable Animal Hero, because really, this is the standard story that shows
how they had to interpret the Quran. And this is something again and again, I point out the Koran was something unprecedented, they had never heard a language, a style, the words the rhythm, the tone, everything is completely unprecedented. And all of you who are Arabs and who speak Arabic compare the Quran to any poetry compared to any poetry, well, like it is nothing like human poetry, right? Compared to the the one of Arusha, the one that would end up be dinner, do you want to be sharp, very, completely different. The Quran is loving is like it because it is the speech of Allah azza wa jal. So imagine the Quran being recited to the masters of the Arab Arabic language, right?
These are the living legends are alive. And the greatest poet of Makkah was Unbelievable. Unbelievable. And then when he who zera was also the chieftain of the boom of zoom, just like a Bhupati was the chieftain of the bundle Hashem alwaleed was the chief and Abuja who was his vice minister. Right is the second in command and will lead up demo hero was the, the big guy of the boombox room. And he was the unparallel poet of Makkah. He was the Shakespeare of Makkah, when the people of Quraysh competed with housing with Latif with the other tribes in poetry alwaleed would represent he is going to the matches he is going to the finals, right this is who are worried is
he is the father of
Khalid Khalid is his son, okay, holiday with his father isn't really the memorial, okay. So I will either no more here are worried about mahira is the the senior of the volume of zoom. And once the profitsystem was reciting the Quran, in Makkah in the in front of the Kaaba, and, and Walid managed to listen uninterrupted for the first time, because before this, they're drowning out the voices. For the first time alwaleed listens to the Quran, and his mesmer he stops in his tracks. And he listens until the Prophet says and finishes and he goes away a change man and he muttered something that spread in the people of Mecca people the Miko a few anybody says something, everything spreads,
gossip is rampant in Mecca, right? And he says something when he's walking away, will la hit up at Samaritan Mohammed in Colombia and an even ma who americanum an NCO when I'm an academic. I have heard a speech from Mohammed right now. It is neither from the speech of men or the speech of Jin in the US Fela hula modaco in the Allahu Allah.
Allah when Allah hit upon our window, yada yada yada even what he said is so beautiful, it's religious.
It's not poetry, but it is a type of beautiful and even to translate it is problematic prose. It's a beautiful prose. What he is saying is the top of it is fertile. The the height of it is beautiful, it has a Halawa and it has a rhythm, in the level Allah when Allah haloperidol again, these are synonyms. Here we don't translate word by word, and it surpasses everything I've heard and nothing can surpass. It is described in the Quran as a pagan. I've never heard anything like this. Neither from the calamity in snowmen calamity, when the people panicked.
Our poet is admitting defeat in one instance, just one recitation. And this is his. So the news spread everywhere, right? when it reached Abu Jamal, he said, leave it to me, don't worry, I'll take care of it. Abuja is the second in command Abuja he immediately goes to the house of a lead and he said he tells I'm worried that your people are ill will lead your people have heard that you have praised the Quran and they will not be satisfied with you until you dissociate from Muhammad Salah your people have heard your praise of the Koran and and he's one of them by the way you meaning your people meaning Me too. They will not be satisfied with you until you say something against it just
like you praised it. pause here footnote. Compare this to Abu polyp.
Compare this to Abu Dhabi
Last week when we mentioned about when the people of Makkah came and said, We will not be satisfied with you until you hand over promises. And he stood his ground. And he did not bow down or cower. And he said Do as you please, I am not going to do it. This is what you call a true leader. alwaleed is your regular politician. And when he's told, you're not going to get the votes, you've got to sing the tune
instantaneously. Because as we keep on telling Well, I want you to understand to hate, you cannot fear anyone or respect any of those who are not fearing Allah subhana wa Tada. A politician is one of the most survival of all human beings, because they go with the wind, they will sell their, you know, the average politician, they will sell their morals for the sake of the votes. Right? They are not leaders, they are followers, as you've been telling me it says that the politicians, the CEO, the ones NCR said, they are not leaders, they are the followers, they have to follow the whims of society. And this is the classic example. That here you have what either the mohila, who pretends to
be so bossy and so famous and whatnot. As soon as he hears he's getting into popular, you gotta sing another tune. He says, What do you ever say, tell me. First thing, what do you ever say? Tell me, I'll say it. And so I will. Joe says,
Call him a madman.
He says he's not a madman. And everybody knows he's not a madman. And we've seen crazy people, and he has no symptoms of a crazy man. So the noble Buddha says, okay, call him a cane, call him a fortune teller. But what he says, but he's not a fortune teller. Like he's trying to be honest here, right? He's not a fortune teller. And he doesn't have the bandana or the miasma of the of the Canada, the Canada way of speaking. And he doesn't have that. So say he's a magician. But he's not a magician. And the magicians have, you know, their their, their their invocations, and their chariot cards, whatever they had with their time there, he doesn't have any of this, right? So say, he's a
poet. And then when he said, By Allah, I am the best poet amongst you here, you wouldn't agree that I am the poet, right? Because I am the best poet amongst you. And none of you can compete in poetry than me. And I am telling you that this is not the type of poetry that we are used to, right. So then a Buddha has said, you need to say something, and we will not be satisfied. Now he says, we we will not be satisfied with you until you say something. So, he said, leave me alone for a few days.
And she began
walking around in his house thinking about what he is going to say, and he's frowning, and he's going back and forth. What am I going to say? And then he finally comes across an idea. I know what I'm going to say that this is, and before he could say it, Allah revealed in the Koran, exactly what is happening in the privacy of his house, and the feelings in his heart and the expressions in his face that nobody even his family did not know. And Allah revealed in the Koran, right? Look at the beauty of the Quran, coinciding with reality, that before he can say something, the Prophet says and recites it and exposes him sort of cinema death here, the second portion, the only woman Halak to
wahida Allah is speaking directly to alwaleed. And Willa he, nobody wants to be alone with issues now. Directly Allah is speaking in the first person. Leave me alone with the one whom I created all the loan, which out to the human mom Duda. What Bernina Shahada I gave him all of his money and so many sons. He had so many sons, Khalid is one of them. And this is one of the many Allah references Hadith indirectly, well by Nina Shahada, Mama had Tula who Tomita, and I prepared everything for him so much moment as he that he still wanted more. Right can in Canada, Tina, Anita, Verily, he was an obstinate stubborn person when he heard our verses. And a lot goes on and describes that when he
heard the Quran in the hufa caravaca de sakuta al Qaeda cuddle, he began plotting and planning and thinking, may he be cursed, how he tried to plot and plan right through my other syllabuses, but I was stuck, but he found and he's walking around, he's pacing in his house. Allah describes it in the Quran. And nobody knew this, how he's feeling and what his expressions are not even his family because he's all alone. And a lot tells it to him in the Koran. We resigned to this day. And then he said, and Allah said what he would say that the worst he could say is in how the Illa say Hold on, you thought in how the Illa Kowloon Basha This is a special type of magic, special type of magic
that is coming from a man it's a special type of zali could say right and unless so obviously his soccer I am going to cause him to go into the blazing fire and will lie even these verses are so powerful in the
Arabic language that Allah is challenging on Willie, do you think you can beat my speech? Even the verses of death are so powerful of the most powerful of the early revelations. And this clearly shows us that of course it will he died a pagan because again, the same arrogant he was the chieftain of the boom of zoom. And when he died, a pagan, and a panel of both of his sons accepted Islam, both of his elder sons, Khalid and the elder brother. They both accepted Islam later on in their lives, not at this point in time. So we said this is the fifth point and that was to try to smear the Prophet system. And there are many stories. It is also narrated that Abu Jamal would stand
outside of Mecca during the pilgrimage season. And before the pilgrims arrived, he make a public announcement that listen, careful, there is a madman in town, sometimes I will not have to do this as well. And he would say, that's my nephew. My nephew has gone crazy. And I warn you do not listen to him. Because if you do, you will be mesmerized. He is a magician who will mesmerize you who will completely captivate you. So when you see him, turn around, put your hands in your ears, write your cover your ears up, do not listen to him. And Subhanallah this was the cause of the conversion of more than one person. One of them. One of them said that, oh, he's, he's a he's a madman. I'm a
I'll kill him. So he went in and went to the profit center. And he said to the Profit System, that I have heard that you are a madman or you have possession or something, and I am a doctor, and I don't mind curing you. So the President said, No, I'm not a madman, but listen to my message. And he said, the horrible to hajer in the hamdulillah the hemudu who understand you know who and I still want to be law him and surely and fusina woman says Dr. Marina Maria de la philomel doula. He went to the he didn't even get to the message. And the man said, Stop. Repeat what you have just said he repeated the ultimate alhaja Jani. This is not even though this is what she was in the beginning. He goes
will lie. I have never heard anything as beautiful than this. What are you? I am a prophet. And then it began and he accepted Islam. Right. So of course it backfired on some but the bulk of people I mean, imagine being stopped before you enter a city and you're told that's a disaster. That's a person crazy man. Of course, you're gonna listen. And so the bulk of the people did not listen and they and they were pursuing persuaded to avoid the Prophet system because of Abu Jihad because of Abu lahab. And the other leaders, the sixth point that will mention of their tactics. Again, all of these are tactics that were mentioned, what did they do? The six points will mention. Sometimes they
try to challenge the prophets of Allah who it sent him for a miracle. And they demand it to see something with their eyes. And again, Allah mentions many such challenges that they asked four
of them is mentioned as total Islam.
Islam is an early mid consumer mid month consumer and sorted as well. They say we'll call you landmannalaugar Hector de joralemon, LDM, Booyah. They say we're never going to believe in you until you cause the earth to spring forth. Water, the unborn young Born on Earth. The unborn is a place of water coming forth, right?
Well, coming forth, we're never going to believe you until we see with our eyes. A world just created out a corner like agenda to mean the hidden we're in or you are simply blessed instantaneously out of nowhere in the desert. The desert is transformed into grapes and into grapes and dates. Grapes were not American fruit. They don't go in Mecca, right? But they want grapes. Everybody knows they're the most luscious fruits. So they say if you truly are a prophet, convert this desert into grapes and, and dates, and so we can eat from it. I will just go to summer accom Azam tallinna key soften or break up the skies as you say that Allah says in the quantity this
amount of water and it will throw a low saying that the sky is going to break up on the Day of Judgment. Do it now. Show us the skies breaking up? Oh, Tatia Villa he was maniacal to Kabbalah. Or why don't you bring Allah himself and bring the angels so that we see them? Oh, we akula Kobe to mythography outta office Emma, or have your house transformed into gold into jewelry or go up to the heavens as we're watching you. Right? And they say well a note mineral key yucca Hatter tuna Zilla de Nikita nakara. And we're never going to listen to your murmuring ruqayyah cure means you're muttering until we see a book coming down from the heavens. And then Allah tells them to say also
Han or be halcon to Illa Bashar Rasulullah say some hanabi I am only a basher. I'm only assume I am not God walking on Earth. Now. question arises Why didn't Allah give them all of these miracles? Why not he is a prophet to respond number one
He did give him some miracles he did. And of those miracles, the most famous of them is mentioned in the Quran yakata Lavazza to one chakra hammer. And they challenged him and they said, if you are truly a prophet, show us the moon splitting. And so he made a dua to Allah and they saw the two halves of the moon. And this is mentioned in the Quran. They saw the two halves of the moon, one on each side of the mountain of Safa, right? And they turned around and they said, Oh, he's bewitched our eyes. He's built our eyes. Number two. The second reason that no miracle was revealed was that Allah revealed the greatest miracle and that is the Quran. And Allah kept on emphasizing this, that
this is your miracle. Number three, why didn't Eliza reveal a miracle is that Allah knows that they are asking out of stubbornness and arrogance. And this is proven by the fact that when the miracle is shown they rejected such as the moon, right? And Allah says in the Quran
doesn't matter what color Muhammad Mota wa Hashanah Allah him Kula che and Colin mackerel, you know, Indonesia, Allah, Allah is saying, if we were to send down the angels, and we were to resurrect the dead in front of them, and all of the creation, which is speak to them face to face, they would still not believe. So this is another wisdom for not answering another wisdom is that Allah azza wa jal is above, being so petty that every time somebody asks you're going to get and allows origin has given enough signs that you should believe in those signs. Another wisdom is that Allah azza wa jal, if he is challenged, he takes the challenge, but with a challenge back, he takes the challenge, but
with the challenge back, and the challenge back is that if you reject, then you will face the punishment. And this is authentically mentioned in sahadi, that once they begged the Prophet system to convert sulfur into gold, of course, they're greedy, they want the gold as well, right. So they begged to convert sulfur into gold. And so the Prophet system felt that they're really sincere. And so he made a special to our to Allah. And he said, Oh, Allah converts sulfur into gold. For them, the mountain of sulfur, by the way, the mountain of software was three, four times bigger than what you see, even now it will be worth a few billion back then you are talking about half the gold of
the whole world. Okay, so the process and felt that they're really close. So he said, Oh, Allah, please convert the mountain of suffer, they will believe. And so Allah sent God down. And this is the son of Allah, that Allah said, If you want, I will convert sofar into gold. But if they reject, they will not have a second chance.
Because I don't play games, Allah says in the Quran, that I didn't do this as a joke. I didn't create everything as Allah who and life, Allah does not, it's too petty. You want to challenge a lot, it is not dignified that Allah azza wa jal just give you everything you want on a silver platter. And so if you want, Allah said, I will change it. But if they refuse, the punishment will come instantaneously. And if you want, I will not change it. But they will have the opportunity then. Right? So the Profit System realized that he has a safer bet, right? With hedaya, than by leaving it open. And so he said, No, I'd rather leave it open to get the opportunity for guidance.
And this was, of course, exactly what happened. And of course, there are many verses in the Quran at least 20 verses that are about this. Allah says one moment and a new syllabus IoT, India and Canada behind a wall. And the only reason we don't send signs is because even the earlier nations all rejected the signs. Allah says What are you sure it'll come under? law? You know, how do you know you're a pseudo law? I know how do you know that when the miracles come? They will actually reject the miracles. I know this, Allah is saying. So the Prophet system is being told there's a reason why I'm not answering all the miracles, and he is being told you have enough miracles with you. as well.
He was given some miracles and denied others. The seventh tactic that they did, the several tactic that they did was attempts of a middle ground, or attempts of outright bribery directly, attempts of a middle ground so negotiating directly with the Profit System, we've already said they negotiate with authority, they negotiated with others, now they try to negotiate directly with him. And different tactics are done. Of course, the classic examples would have capital, right? So they came to the Prophet system, and they said, Okay, let's reach a compromise. One day, we'll all be Muslim.
And the next day, we'll all be covered basically, right? The next day, we'll worship our gods, right. One day, we worship our gods. And the next day we worship Allah alone. Okay, so this is the compromise, because it's getting out of hand that people are converting or breaking up society. Let's reach this compromise. Of course, there is no compromise.
Until heat. And so Allah revealed in the Quran. Oh yeah, you don't say oh you will have rejected Islam, la boo, boo, I don't worship what you worship. What are you doing? I'm an avid and neither do you worship who I worship, pause here they did worship Allah How could How can I say what does it mean when Allah says you don't worship what I worship response because when you worship Allah via Sheikh you are not worshiping Allah. When you worship Allah via shoot, you are not worshiping Allah. So what are you doing Mr. Abbot? And then voila, the Duma button. Notice this is different than what? That choreographer la boo wala. And Abby, there's a difference. It's not the exact same one
anthem abdomen output, this is repeated. So there's four verses back to back. This, the second and the fourth are exactly the same, whether until output, right? The first and the third are different law Voodoo Wallah and a bit. And scholars have different over 10 opinions about what is the difference between them she shuffled assembly with a bit of mobile data has a position, which is that the second the first verse here, or the second verse of the sort of polio capital, la boo Mata boo,
Buddha with the reference is to the God, the gods and Allah, the references to the object of worship. And then what an Abbe Dhamma but what
about the reference is to the actions of worship What do you do to worship? So I pray, I fast I give zakah you
have arrows that you throw in front of the idols right, and you clap, and you whistle. Well, Makana salado and the beta Illa. mocha and what is their what is there prayer in front of the house except clapping and singing and whistling? So this the first one, an album out will enter the room. It actually refers to according to Evan Tamia, what you do to worship, and the first two verses or first two, who do you worship, right? So there's a difference here, let come Dino camaleon, that there is no compromise, you have your way, I have my way I cannot compromise. And once they sent a delegation to the Prophet system, along with integral part of his house,
so they call for a meeting. So they tried to go behind his back to call him now they call for a meeting with him. And they proposition to him directly. That what can we do so that you get rid of this message? What do you want? And so he says,
I only want one word from you. Now they understood this is one condition, and one word from you. And so Abu lahab stood up and said, One word will lie he will give you 10 can you want any eaten by by one? Kela? One kalama he meant like one, you're saying, I want one statement from you. Right? So you understand, like, I just want one condition. That's how a Buddha had understood it right? That's always true, because one we will lie will give you 10 if you stop doing this, so the Prophet says that I've said the kalama that I want is La Ilaha Illa la, la la la la. And so Abuja says that a Jalan earlier to Allah and wahida in the huddle a shaman Rajab. And Allah revealed this in the Quran
surah Assad that has he made our objects into one objects of worship into one. This is something that is crazy. We've never heard of this before. And of course, the most famous incident of outright bribery. The most famous incident is that of roozbeh, Abner Arabia, and ultimate Abdullah via was from the bayou Hashem, and he was of the distant uncles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was a man of wisdom and a man of learning. And in fact, the Prophet says, and himself called him a man of wisdom and learning. Who knows when quiz question Who knows when rotable ignored Robbie, I was praised by the prophet system.
Very close before but not after brother before brother right before brother at the Battle of brother before but that had begun. Right? So a footnote you know, it'll be a Who is he? He is from the bedroom Hashem Baba. Enough. He is a distant father's cousin. Basically, the problem is a slum. And by the way, he is the one whom when the process is returning to from, if he's all bloodied, he's all bruised, and he's close to Mecca. He sits in the garden of rootsweb, Namibia, and Rosa sees him bloodied and bruised. And he's the one who commands the Christian, the historian Christian ID to go and give him the grapes. This is Earth webnode obeah. He has some soft spot and he has wisdom. And
when was he called wise on the Battle of butter on the day of the battle, the battle before the Battle of butter, when the profitsystem was looking at the distance, and he sees the armies lined up, and he sees a man racing back and forth on a red camel saying something, nobody can hear what he's saying because there's half a mile away.
He's saying something. And the Prophet says to them said to the Muslims, he said to the Muslims that if the Quran have any good in them, they will listen to the wise man on the red camel.
That was rooting for him, not labia. And he was trying to prevent the Battle of butter.
And he was going back and forth saying, Oh people there is your brother. There is your father. There is your uncle. How can you fight them? Right? How are you going for war? You're going to kill these people. Who's going to be the victor. We're going to get to this a shallow whenever we get to it right? Who's going to be the victor? If you die, you die. If you when you've killed your brother, how would you like to be the murder of your own brother? So he gave them a moving sermon, but of course, Abuja annulled it. Abuja has stood up and completely abrogated with his rhetoric, so rich but then fought and he was killed in the battle abandoned him and his brother and his son all were
killed in the Battle of butter. They were killed in the very beginning, when the battles that happened, right, between Ali and Hamza and others, so we'll talk about that I'm jumping the gun, that's a different topic, inshallah, get back over here, where are we going to have neurobion. So the Quran are sitting in their, in their Nadi, in their gathering their Senate to their Congress, and
they are simply cursing the process and making fun of him saying, what are we going to do things have gone too much growth, but says, Have any of you actually tried to negotiate with him?
And they say, Well, no, we haven't done that. for what purposes will obviously then that's what needs to be done. Look, he's a nephew of mine, his nephew, nephew of mine, sent me as your representative. Okay, allow me to speak on your behalf. I'm sure we can work something out with the guy, right. And he is the same man. We know him since he's a child. You know, he's not he's been a good person. Let's just work some compromise out. So this is earth.
And so they say call us whatever you need, you are a representative, go and try to negotiate a treaty with the man. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting in front of the Kava root but comes to him and says, Oh, my nephew, again, he's an elder, and the process of is, you know, 45 years old and he's in his 50s or 60s. He knows him since he's a child. So Oh, my nephew. You know, your status and you know, your lineage in your society, you are the grandson of Abdulmutallab, the son of Abdulmutallab, you know, you are who you are. Now, you've come forth with a matter that has really caused havoc in our society. All Mohammed so I said, Are you better or
Abdullah? Or Mohammed's awesome? Are you better or Abdulmutallab? These are trick questions. They're loaded questions. You cannot answer them. Right? Because in fact, who is better?
The Profit System, right? But from artibus perspective, this is blasphemy. No young man is gonna say he's better than his father, grandfather, the founder of the tribe is especially Abdulmutallab, come on. You know, Are you better now? For me? This is a beautiful point of wisdom here. When you're asked trap questions. You're not allowed to lie. I've said this many times, our religion does not allow us to have double faces. I say one thing to in private and another to them in public. No, we are open about what we believe. But you can't answer every question to satisfy the questioner because their intellectual level is different. I mean, this is a man steeped in Jamelia. And for
him, it is it is just completely a given that I've done with and it was the greatest Arab ever, and you're his grandson. So it's a trick question. The Prophet system did not even answer. This is wisdom. Many of our youngsters would have blurted out, of course, I'm better because I'm told Hayden, this is *. But you're going to lose the battle for the sake of a trick question. Quiet, because you're not going to understand words. So he didn't answer or to understand this to mean victory, but the processor was quiet. And then he kept on going. And he goes, I have we have never seen any young man, as promising as you flip around and become so unpromising.
Danny, you were such a symbol of optimism. We had our hopes in you and stuff, realizing what a desolate failure you have become stuck for too long. Why? Because you have broken our society. You had so much potential. We have not seen any young man bring forth more harm to his people. Then you have the Arabs are all making fun of us. The people are mocking your call. You have split us up. And it is just a matter of time. He was the expression which is interesting. In the Arabic language, we don't have it in English. He said, we're waiting for the cry of the pregnant woman.
You know, the pregnant woman in the ninth month those of you who have children know this, you're on call all the time. Right?
That last moment, you just waiting for that phone call or that cry that it started us. panic mode begins, right? This is an expression in the Arabic language, okay? The cry of the pregnant woman, this means that any second is going to happen. We're just waiting for the cry of the pregnant woman to have civil war will lie. This was true, but it was around the corner a few years down the line, right? We're just waiting for anything to have a civil war. So you're an intelligent man, listen to me, I will propose certain conditions, perhaps you'll agree to one or more of them. And then he gives his list. Because this is the list coming from his mind that he's used to. If you wish for
money, if that's why you're doing this, then I have the power of the operation vested in me, we will give you more money than anybody of us have, collectively will collect raise funds for your fundraisers, give it all to you, and you shall be the richest of the Arabs. If you want power, we will make you our king. The Arabs did not have a king, they did not have a king. But now they are so desperate. They are saying we'll give you the title of King. And anything that we want, you will have to agree and sign to it you become our ruler. And can you believe in their hatred of Islam? They're willing to unify? Can you believe that? Because they're never unified. every tribe is
wanting to be bought. But if they're that desperate, we'll make you our king. And if you want women,
go choose any woman that you want. And we'll make sure that she is married to you. I mean, after all, this is what three things that men want, right? Power money and women. That's what men want. What else do they want Besides this, so if you want women, choose any woman that you want, and we will make sure that she is married to you, right? And so he gave all of these conditions. Of course, he also added the fourth one, if you think you're sick, will will hire doctors to cure you as well. There is a mental problem, who will go to the best doctors in the nation who will make sure that we will get this cure. So when he's finished, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
Are you done? Yeah, a bit worried is cornea, I will will lead everybody who also died in the Battle of butter. His son was that what are you done yet a bit worried. And somehow this is the wisdom of the process from he never interrupted. He never interrupted the simple habit that we are used to in this society. I have to say Muslim culture has abandoned but the West so as it you don't interrupt person when they're speaking. You let them finish. Not just that you then ask, Are you done for anything else? He goes, No, that's all I have. So that he said, Now listen to me. Now it's my turn. And then he began RO Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, hermy wakita
bill Moby, and he begins reciting Surah facilite He begins reciting suitable Senate. Now just like the rest of the kurush roozbeh has never actually listened wholeheartedly to the Koran. Any a passage or a section of the Quran. Right. And so Raja was sitting back as he goes, when he's done, he puts his hands back to relax, basically, yes, I'm done. Now it's your turn. Okay. And as the profitsystem continued reciting, and he continued going, verse by verse, earth, verse expression begins to change. And he begins to palpitate. And there's a reversal sort of facilite that says, for an hour or two for whole adult to consign cotton myth lasagna, aka Dr. Jean with a mood right? Now,
I wanted to actually recite it and go over verse by verse. Unfortunately, as usual, I don't have the time to go into that much detail. But these are things that need to be done, I want you all to go back and read facilite not translation, read it, and see the power that the rhythm the tempo is building up. And then Allah says, if they turn away, then warn them that a punishment will come and a destruction, just like the destruction of art and their mood, when he recited this route, but jumped up, and he put his hand on the mouth of the Prophet system, and said, I beg you by a law and by the rights that I have over you as your blood relative to stop and don't send this punishment. I
beg you I'm sure Kabila Jani, it's moved him. Can you imagine hearing that the law of the processor, right? It's moved in that he is now trembling. And he turns and he runs back to the same group who has now sent Him as their authority and delegates, and he says to them, Listen to me, like he tried to list they could listen to them and better, but they never listened. Listen to me, leave this man alone. Leave this man alone, because I have heard a speech from him that I have never heard before. Again, the power of the Koran
And I could not comprehend all of it. Any other scholars have different why people say this, some people say because the words were so advanced, but in fact, they were not that advanced. What really it is, is that as Allah says that when there's so much shidduch, there is a rush hour on their hearts. And so they accept they understand some phrases and others is just beyond them at that point in time until they accept Islam. I could not understand all of it. However,
in kulula, who shun, he is going to have unimportance. SHAN he's gonna have, he's gonna cause some seen on the on the, in the in the world if you like. And if the Arabs get rid of him for us, then our hands are clean because he's a federal policy. We're not allowed to touch him. Right? If the other Arabs get rid of him, then our job is done. But if he wins over the Arabs, then will law his victory is our victory. And his power is our power. I mean, isn't this a pragmatic wise man, he's not a believer, he never accepted, but this is what you call pragmatism. Look, leave the guy alone. If he really is not worth it, somebody else will do the job and kill him. Let us not do it because
he's our tribesmen. And if he is what he is saying he is, then his victory is our victory. And his success is our success. Allah says in the Quran, Lacan, Zenn la come carbon fee, the crew come, we have revealed to you a book, it will be, Your Honor, your Vicar, the Arabs would have been with me not trying to be faces because they would have been a fit and footnote in history. Well, they would have had nothing to give just like some of the tribes of Africa, whatever that we don't even know about in the past. Right. Some of the aborigines we don't know anything about them, the Arabs who have been another footnote, that Allah says, We have given you a book, you will become the rulers,
the codons and a carbon fee. Your legacy will be through the Quran. And that's exactly what happened. That because of the Quran, the arrows became the rulers of the world. And the arrows went to a height that even the Romans and the Persians and everybody else was left behind. Right. And so this is what rotable is telling them. Yeah, in many, many decades before the actual rise happens. When Rosa said this, they said as they always said to everybody else, he has bewitched you like you do with everybody else. Right, continuing on, they cannot accept the truth as it comes to them. And there's much more to say but as usual, unfortunately we have run out of time. And so inshallah tada
I open the floor for five, six minutes of questions, and we will continue resume later on a shallow to add
questions. Yes, was given the title of
some scholars say that
this was a title given to him by the prophets of Salaam.
Of course, his name is Alma. His name is Alma.
And he was called the father of wisdom before this,
and the father of power. And so some say that when he rejected Islam, then he was called a Buddha. However, it sounds good to say that however, he was also called a Buddha by the Polish, and therefore Yanni Allahu Allah, I don't have a definitive answer. I do not have a definitive answer. When was he called Pooja hell, was it the Prophet system? And then the Quran took it from him, or was it something that happened before Islam? There are two opinions? I don't know which one is the stronger one of London's best sisters. Any question? Yes, Sabrina.
Did the pre Islamic errors believe in gins? Yes, they believed engines. In fact, every society on Earth, without exception, believes in something called the jinn or supernatural or ghosts or spirits, every society on Earth, whether it is African tribes, Aborigines we just mentioned, every society if you look at it, anthropologically, historically, and this is to this day, you know, integer, medieval Europe, it's only in modern times, where we think we have you know, left superstition, otherwise, it was a well known fact amongst every society that there is an entity that is not human, and they give a different names. They called it spirits, they call the ghosts. Of
course for us, we know that it is a jinn so yes, the Arabs did believe in the jinn.
So let's talk about
the most important relationships that we have as people who is our relationships, our parents, what was the wisdom or what was the reason
you're not able to see how the Prophet
the question is about what is the wisdom of the Prophet says and being an orphan? In fact, five, six weeks ago, I talked about this for like 20 minutes about this exact question. Exactly. What is the wisdom? why did why didn't Eliza wizard just give you the process and parents in the lap of luxury? Why was he an orphan, and we talked about this for 20 minutes, I recommend you go back. But to summarize, some of the wisdoms was so that the Prophet system has to be or has taken care of, literally would be from a lot directly, nobody could have said that he had that type of influence. Because an orphan really is an independent person in many ways, even if you're taking care of buy
food and drink, but terms of thought in terms of nourishment in terms of intellectual nourishment, the processor was left to himself, and so Allah took care of him. Another reason is that the is that orphans, they grow up to be more mature, and more intelligent, and more merciful. And the Prophet needed all of these characteristics, right. And there's a sense of independence that the orphan would have, that would help them to be braver, and when they're facing persecution, and all of these characteristics, the process of them needed them to be a prophet of Allah. And there are other wisdoms that scholars derive. But these are the main ones and allies Russia knows best. This.
Two of the daughters of the Prophet system were indeed engaged to Abu lahab sons, you need to realize that in that culture,
it was common for young children to be engaged because they wanted to book they wanted to lock it into play, everything is lineage, everything is lineage. So you want your child's husband or wife, right, to be a person of good lineage. And so before the coming of Islam, no doubt of will I have is an uncle and a Buddha have children is obviously the grandchildren of Abdullah, as well. And so two of the daughters of hula have had already booked them for his own sons. Right? And so even though they were not of marriageable age, they were young girls at the time, but they had been booked and then when Islam began, then, of course, it would have melted.
Not in the McKee period. No, the consummation had not occurred anyway.
Not to the monkey period. Other questions, two minutes left.
A lot of people get confused with Jehan Abu lahab are two different people. A lot of people get confused with Jehan and Abu lahab are two different people, two different tribes. Abu lahab is mentioned in the Quran. That's how you will remember it but Yoda, a bee lab. And Abu lahab is the uncle of the Prophet system. Right? He's the uncle from a grandmother who only had him. Abdulmutallab had five wives, Abdulmutallab had five wives. One of them gave birth to Abu Dhabi and they had no other children besides that, so I will have is a unique mother. And then another of them is the the grandmother of the Prophet system and also a body of his mother. So I will bite him and
Abdullah were full brothers. Okay. I will thought about Abdullah were full brothers. And that's why I would not have took care of the process of Abuja, hell has nothing to do with the bamboo Hashem. He's from the bedroom, I presume, a different tribe. And Abu Jahan is the one whom the process and called the fit out of my own. So Abu jihad is the fear out of my own, but that's what the process of him said. Right. And so that is a status that even a will have does not have. Okay.
Abu lahab was his kunia before Islam for sure. He has a name, it doesn't come to me now. I've done it. That's the one that was his name. But Abu lahab was given to him before Islam, and it was a name of praise that he is a man of fire. And so Allah used it as a name of mockery. So I will not have for sure. The coup Nia was before the coming of Islam, and that was the name of praise for him. final point to this, this weekend is a packed weekend Alhamdulillah for me,
because I'm here for a long time. So on Saturday, we have a very special guest speaker coming, I really strongly encourage you to attend. He's a good friend of mine as well. Mashallah very, very intellectual, very good historian. He's doing a finishing up a PhD from from NYU in Islamic history, and he's going to be giving a talk about under loose and some benefits from under those. I'll be joining him for Baraka shala for his Baraka that might, I might give a few words but I'm not an expert as much as he isn't under the so he'll be talking about under this that is on
Saturday, At what time?
It is At what time? You don't know. Hmm. We tend to advertise after positive. Okay, so it's Saturday so after Salatin Muslim, so be here for celebrity Margaret. Michelle, you don't have a problem coming on Saturday for the mother. So after certain Muslim will pray Muslim and then after all we'll start the class in Sharla. On Sunday at 11am. The sisters have their hand up a resume that I give a hell of a once a month for the sisters. So please send that to the sisters list as well. The sisters have a Hanukkah on Sunday. And on Sunday night, there is a family activity. Everyone is welcome. After mother a prayer presentation starts at 645 searching for the stars learning about astronomy.
We are inviting the Memphis Astronomical Society to come here and they will bring some telescopes let me add if any of you have telescopes bring them as well we'll have some more telescopes. So they're going to bring four or five I'm sure each one will have a long line so the more telescopes you have, just bringing them in a shallow will be beneficial for us. And we're going to be looking at the the stars we're going to be looking at Venus and the Sirius and the North Star and whatever else they'll tell us. And so we're looking forward to that on Sunday night at 645.
And so after Melissa both Saturday and Sunday Mashallah busy. And Sunday afternoon for the sisters at 11. What is this faith family and fun? Tired of turning off your lights? Oh, this is for Halloween.
Oh, this is I'm supposed to be speaking. Yes. Okay, I see my name on the flyer. So apparently I'm supposed to be speaking here. Okay.
This is on Monday. Well, we'll have a very busy weekend this weekend. Saturday, Sunday, Monday, all three days, unfortunately, we'll be seeing me so on Monday, instead of pretending you're not home and turn the lights off right. inshallah, come over to
PBS. And we're going to be having a little bit of a carnival over there. Games, ice cream, and there's going to be bookstore, Islamic bookfair as well. And stories for Muslims cakes, balloons, toss the balloon soccer kick, etc, etc. Uh huh. No costume allowed
it's a it's a it's a Muslim ethnic day. Let me let me say costumes are allowed if their ethnic wear your chalok commies. Were you folks? But please No, no Shelton an insurgent? Please? we don't we don't want any Sheltie. Okay. So this is going to be on Monday at six to eight and it's a good way to get out of your houses really instead of just pretending to be out of your houses inshallah. And yes, by the way, I do believe we should not be celebrating Halloween some of you asked me this clearly. This is a festival that has too much pagan elements in it it's a bit too clear. And so we draw the line here. I might not draw the line elsewhere but here we draw the line and we say
Halloween and Christmas and these things. It is not a part of our idea and even we should avoid giving even candy give candy another day Yeah, I think you can do on read. Why don't you want to give sweets on eight hour eat go give sweets to the neighbors right? But on Halloween you don't want to participate in such a festival. Try to avoid it it's safer for our Deen inshallah, to Allah and inshallah Allah with this we'll call the other end for Salatin, Russia.
