Episode Notes

In this video, we see how Prophet Muhammad ﷺ began his initial steps towards planting the seeds of Yathrib. Shaykh Yasir Qadhi embarks on a tell all of the events that transpired and the culmination happened in Yathrib.

The Prophet ﷺ had been abandoned by his own tribe and the Quraysh were not happy with the situation where Mut’im was siding with the Prophet ﷺ. Mut’im passed away within a year before the battle of Badr. So the Prophet ﷺ realised that he needs to leave Mecca and head elsewhere so that he can promote the religion of Islam. The Prophet ﷺ approached many tribes but all of them rejected the message like the tribes of Kindah, Banu Shayban and many more.

The city of Yathrib was composed of three main groups of people. Two of whom were Arab, and one large group of Jews. The Arab tribes were the Aws and the Khazraj. And the Jews werel: Banu Nadir, Banu Qaynuqa the Banu Quraytha.

Of the six who accepted Islam from the tribe of Khazraj (the Prophet ﷺ had explained to them the teachings of Islam, recited the Qur’an, explained tawheed, warned against shirk etc) were some of the famous Ansar: Uqbah ibn Amir, Jabir ibn Abd Allah, As’ad bin Zurara. And they converted and went back and spread the message until in the next few months everybody in the city of Yathrib had heard of the new message and knew some of their people had reverted.

00:00:08--> 00:00:16

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah hawala, Adi. He was supposed to be here woman Wada.

00:00:18--> 00:00:59

So we spent around three weeks talking about the Islam and marriage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we went over the benefits and the details of this law. And just as the Prophet says and returned to Mecca, and life resumed, so too, we also need to return back to Mecca, and resume with the Sierra from where we left off. Now, remember, we had talked about the death of butadiene, and the fact that the protection that the profitsystem enjoyed being from the venerable Hashem, initially, Abu lahab felt obligated to give him the protection. And then within a week or two, he rescinded it, cancelled it. And so Who can tell me who took over the protection? Who could tell me

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

how was the process of living in Mecca?

00:01:02--> 00:01:02

Yes.

00:01:04--> 00:01:08

He had passed away he had died. Who had you who is giving you the protection?

00:01:09--> 00:01:09

Yes.

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

Close

00:01:13--> 00:01:19

multichem you actually have an ad for Michelle, who writes my son corrected me Okay, multi,

00:01:20--> 00:01:48

multi million ad multi million ad was the one who had given protection to the profits of the law while he was selling them. And it was under the protection of multichem that he had been living now. This was a very precarious situation. very awkward. Why is it awkward? Because his own tribe has abandoned him. The new Hashem has abandoned him. And Jubail is from another tribe. And it's a very awkward situation that the Quran is not too happy with what's going on. Also.

00:01:49--> 00:02:33

multichem himself was a very elderly man, very old man. And in fact, after the process of immigrated, Moulton passed away within a year, within a year before the Battle of budder multiroom died before the battle about that he had already died, and therefore it's a very awkward situation. And so the process and realizes he needs to leave Mecca, he's already tried thought if life has failed him. So what is he doing now? The Prophet system began going to the tribes that he used to come for Hajj, and presenting himself the Arabic word is, yeah, doable enough. So out of one of several, presenting himself to the tribes, asking any of them to sponsor him to transfer allegiance.

00:02:33--> 00:03:13

Now, this was something known but very rare. The Arabs had this concept that sometimes somebody had to change tribes for a political reason for a dramatic reason, sometimes will be for a marriage reason that a person might choose the tribe. if let's say the tribe of the woman said, we will only marry you if you come to our tribe. So the concept was there of changing tribes, but it was a rare concept and the Prophet system, therefore utilize this concept by approaching the various tribes during Hajj now, what happened during Hajj we already mentioned, Hajj was a phenomenon that was coming from the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, just like in our times, every country would send

00:03:13--> 00:03:55

representatives, right. And what happens in Mina in Mina Mina is divided up into zones. Just like in our times you have the Americans are here, right? The Nigerians are here. The Iranians are here, the Chinese Muslims are here, it was exactly the same except that it wasn't nations It was about in there were tribes that had spots in minute every tribe knew where we're gonna camp, it was something customary. And so the Prophet says Adam, would utilize the fact people are coming to him, and he would then approach the tribes. And he began doing this in earnest. Now, there are records that he was doing this from before the death of Abu Dhabi, but he was only doing it for that weird reasons.

00:03:56--> 00:04:33

He was not asking them to adopt him. Right. So he is simply approaching the tribes to preach Islam. There are records of this that he was going to the tribes to preach Islam, and later on, we'll mention perhaps even we know of some pseudo converts who had accepted Islam or maybe not. We'll find out some more details later on. But the key is, before the death of Abu Talib, he's not approaching them to ask for political asylum, is approaching them for that one, after the death of the tune changes. And it is not just accepting Islam, but it is also political asylum. And

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

there are numerous reports from eyewitnesses from the other tribes, some of whom were not, in fact, all of whom were not Muslim at the time, reporting what the prophets Islam would say. And of them is the story of Rebecca, even Ubud, who said that when he was a young child he remembers as a young man, coming to Mina, his father was the chieftain of their tribe, coming to Mina and he said

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

I remember a young man coming he was a child, he remembers a young man coming. The processor was not young at this time, but clearly his beard was all black at this time. So the child remember is a young man, a young man coming and speaking to my father, telling him to embrace the worship of Allah and leave idolatry and to accept him into his tribe. And he said, I saw a man standing behind him, waiting for him to finish an elderly man wearing a Yemeni cloak having two ponytails, the Arabs had ponytails, men would have ponytails, Islam came and said, generally speaking, men should not be doing this, but the Arabs have all they had, they would, they would braid their hair, you know, the

00:05:47--> 00:06:29

masculine ponytails, which is common. Now in some cultures, they have these masculine ponytails. So he had these two ponytails coming out. And he was wearing a Yemeni cloak, elderly man waiting in the background. When this young man finished and move to the next tent, this elderly man came forward and said, Oh, people, this is a person who's calling you to give up your Gods a lot and a loser. And he's calling you to give up the weight of your forefathers. So do not give up that way and stay with the weight of your forefathers. So Robbie, I said, I asked my father who is this young man and who is the older man who came to cancel what he said. So his father said, this is the young man they

00:06:29--> 00:07:04

claim is a profit. So people have heard of a man claiming to be a prophet. And that elderly man is his uncle Abdullah Rosa, meaning Abu lahab. That elderly man is his uncle, Abdullah Rosa, Eben Upton. So the matter of the prophecies and had become a bit of a common knowledge now, this is the man who claims to be a prophet. So his mantra had spread amongst the tribes. And the Prophet system kept on going, tribe to tribe, in another narration reported by many of the classical books of

00:07:05--> 00:07:50

the prophets are seldom said, Who will take me who will adopt me basically, so that I may preach the message of Islam the message of La ilaha illa Allah, because Quraysh has prevented me from preaching the Kalam of Allah, but he has stopped me from preaching the Kalam of Allah. And therefore the Prophet system is calling people not only to Islam, but also to accept him politically to adopt him politically. And the Prophet system approached multiple tribes, he approached of the tribes that we know the famous tribe of kingda, the tribe of bundler, Abdullah have nickeled the tribal bundle hanifa, the tribal bundle and made him the salsa, all of these tribes, they rejected the message

00:07:50--> 00:08:32

some of them more harshly than others, some of them more harshly than others. Some of them were rude, some of them were sarcastic, and some of them did it more politely, one of the so we have a number of interesting stories about what happened with these tribes, two or three interesting stories. One of these is from the tribe of Kingdom, the tribe of kingda, was a tribe that once upon a time had a lot more prestige than now. They were a glorious tribe of old. And they were one of the few Arab tribes that actually had something of a king, they had a kingdom once upon a time in their land, once upon a time, maybe 500 or 400 years ago, and they had lost that prestige. And now they

00:08:32--> 00:09:13

were simply the stories of old but they had lost the power that they used to have. So when the Prophet system approached the chieftain of Kingdom or one of the chieftains of Kingdom, because again, remember, the way that the tribal system works, there is no one leader for the whole tribe, you have leaders of every sub tribe coming together in a parliamentary system if you like, right. So the for even for example, Abu Talib in his lifetime, was not the chieftain of Quraysh. He was the chieftain of the battle Hashem and motoring was the chieftain of the volume of zoom and so on and so forth. Right? And so each of the sub tribes has their chieftain, and it's not as if there's one

00:09:13--> 00:09:36

king, that's one of the signs of a god society. There's no unified civilization, no one person is in charge. And we already mentioned Abdulmutallab had almost broken that and almost become the unified leader of the corporation, but even he did not become the king. So he approached one of the chieftains of the kingdom is named does not concern us will confuse me more by the names, and the chieftain listened with great attention.

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

And he said, this is a very interesting message. Come with me, I will grant you an audience with our other chieftains, ie the other elites. Come with me, I'll grant you an audience and what you said to me say to them, so the profitsystem followed him, they went into the gathering and he can

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

The Gathering and the processing of preached a message to them. Then the man who had brought him in spoke up, so he has his thinking two steps ahead. And he said,

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

All my fellow tribesmen,

00:10:14--> 00:11:03

if we were to take this matter from this young man, again, he called him a young man, because again, the processor is now in his late 50s. And so the elders, the chieftains would be definitely in their 60s and 70s. So, no, he's just calling him he's still relatively young to compare to the chieftains. If we were to take this, this young man from the courage and adopt him, we will have a message through which we can conquer the other Arabs. Notice, he's thinking, politically, this man is coming with his message, I have my message, what is my message to regain the glory of Kingdom to regain the tribal ancestry, the kingdom of Kingdom, he's presenting me with a message that will allow me to

00:11:03--> 00:11:32

devour the other arrows, ie to control and rule the other Arabs. So he's telling the tribes This is why I invited him in. Right. Think not in terms of theology, in terms of politics, think not in terms of Eman in terms of the fact you're coming with something new. It's interesting, it's exciting, the Arabs are gonna follow it. And we will have a different ethics and a different code that we can then use to conquer the other Arabs. So then he turned to the Prophet system and said, Now tell me

00:11:34--> 00:11:54

if we were to follow you in this matter of yours. And then Allah gives us victory over all those who are your enemies. He's being very political here, if we were to join you, and Allah gives us victory over your enemies. Will you give us control of this affair? After you?

00:11:56--> 00:12:27

Meaning? Will we be the rulers after you? You can be the ruler as long as you're alive, no problem. But once you're gone, will it return to kingdom? So the Prophet has said very accurately and correctly in the law, he you read to him and Yeshua, amen everybody, that the kingdom, the milk belongs to a law of the land belongs to Allah. And Allah gives it to whomever he pleases. Notice the beauty, he didn't say yes, he didn't say no.

00:12:28--> 00:13:09

This is a condition I cannot agree to a law as though a gel is the one who owns this earth. But he is seeing that the reason they want to embrace the faith is not genuine. He man it is politics. And so he's not attracted himself to this group. And he says in the law, he used to Harmonia military body. So this chieftain said, so you're asking us to follow you stick our necks out behind you, in order to have them cut off, meaning this war, and then after we have spilled our blood, and you have used it to conquer the Arabs, then you will take the kingdom go, we have no need of this.

00:13:10--> 00:13:56

So the whole point for them was politics. The Kingdom wanted to reclaim their, their their kingdom of old and they did not find any use in a message that will not give them power. And look at the wisdom and also the sincerity and also the firmness of the Prophet says that he is only Allah has placed him in a very precarious situation. If one word to say it is desperate, it would not be far from the truth. He needs somebody to sponsor him and the kin the tribe is the soup one of the superpower tribes of the Arabs. It is one of the heavyweights, it is rivaling the kurush It used to be much more powerful than the Polish, the kin the tribe is definitely one of the heavyweights of

00:13:56--> 00:14:34

the entire peninsula. And so they're asking him to compromise. And yet he cannot compromise on the message. You're not going to gain victory by compromising what is a part of your religion? And so the Prophet system said, No, we are not going to give you this condition. And because of this, he gave up an opportunity that many of us where we try to do it in our times we have no problems compromising much more than this, but the process and realize two things. Firstly, he's not allowed to compromise the message. Secondly, this group of people will not be true believers.

00:14:35--> 00:14:48

And ally helps this religion through true believers and not through the power and might of Kindle or of any other tribe. And so the Prophet system went on his way. Another story we have is that of the new shavon urban Sangha

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

which is an interesting story. It doesn't give us many morals, but it shows us that some people were interested for genuine reasons the bundle shavon excited about

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

Generally the profit system would go with Abu Bakar. Why? Because Abu Bakar was the expert of genealogy of NASA of unsub. And a worker knew more about the unsolved of the Arabs than any other person. And therefore, whenever they would go to a people abubaker would tell the Prophet system, this is for that had been Fulani. This is the tribe of Fulani been Fulani, and of their positives is this and of the things you should be aware of is that and of their leaders is so and so. And this shows us that the Prophet system will take advantage of the knowledge of the people that Abu Bakar had a type of knowledge and the Prophet system took advantage of this, there is no question that he

00:15:43--> 00:15:51

is rescued Allah that Allah is inspiring him. But his perfection and his Esma comes in religious knowledge

00:15:52--> 00:16:30

comes in how to worship Allah comes in a bar, the rituals theology. As for the matters of this world, Allah subhana wa tada sometimes chose to give him more than anybody. And sometimes he didn't, in which case he took advantage of the people of knowledge. And if this is the case of our Prophet sallallahu, ala he was setting them that he had no qualms benefiting from other people's knowledge and experience. Where do we stand and this is multiplied many times in this era, right? And this is something by the way, many Muslim groups find amazing or awkward, how could the process and have benefited from the knowledge of other people, but we keep on telling, under seeing in the syrup, the

00:16:30--> 00:17:11

humanity of our solar system, he is indeed Rasulullah but he is not animals. He was Shahada. He doesn't have a hidden animal Barton and abubaker spent more years studying genealogy than even the Prophet says. And so the process of had no problem that aboubaker advise him and tell them about the positives and negatives about each and every time so when they go to this tribe, Abubakar asks them he is with the process of a boo, boo boo says greetings and says the Salaam and as the metal cone, which is the polite way of asking you know Who are you because you cannot recognize them by seeing them. Who are you? So they said we are wha ban in fact never. So the Profit System worker leans over

00:17:11--> 00:17:53

to the process of it says Yasuda LA, w shavon are of the most noble and the most illustrious and the most intelligent tribes of the Arabs. ie These are people who are valued for their wisdom. And they have amongst them full land and full land and full land. He mentioned their tribal leaders. They have amongst them these people who are known for their Quran for their generosity for their sincerity. So Abu Bakar knows all of this. And so he's preparing the process and that these are people of intelligence. So they exchanged some pleasantries back and forth. And they asked, Who are you this is the worker says I am the son of alcohol from the origin. This is the grandson of the

00:17:53--> 00:18:30

Matata. So they introduce themselves, and then the Renu shavon say, What is your matter? Why are you here basically, right? In other words, it's not the custom of the Arabs, or the orange to go knocking on tents. There's a reason you're coming. So what is the matter? What is the issue that you're hearing? And so here the prophets or some spoke, so Abu Bakar introduced him, Abu Bakar was his press secretary here is whose It was his ambassador, opening the doors, once the doors are open, the pleasantries are finished, then the Profit System speaks up. And the Profit System says, I am we have come here to invite you to evaluate the law

00:18:31--> 00:19:17

that regarded the law why the hula should ecola and that you reject the gods false gods. And we also ask you to accept us to take us into your tribe, because the Quraysh has are such wobbuffet and they have been arrogant and they have been evil and they have rejected us or they have stopped us from preventing prevented us excuse me from spreading the speech of Allah and Allah is Allah honey and Hamid, I am asking for your help but Allah does not need your help. I am asking for your help. But then he finishes and Allah is Allah Ronnie and Hamid right? So don't think that Allah needs you. We are saying help us out if you want and Allah will reward you. But Allah azzawajal is funny. And

00:19:17--> 00:19:27

Hamid. So the tribal leader said, What else is there anything more than this? So the Prophet says and recited to them the famous verse of sort of the

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

culture at Luma hamara. Boo Kamala Kamala to shoe Kobe and worldwide in the San Jose Come, I will tell you what your Lord has forbidden for you that you don't worship any besides Him, you don't do [???] with him. And you'll be good to your parents, and you'll be good to your relatives and the verse goes on and you don't eat the property of orphans and you do this and you do that you do not do Fantasia and you be trustworthy in your judgment. So it's all about Ayat of ethics and morality. The chieftain said anything more than this, the prophets

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

himself in the law Hotel in the La Jolla, San Diego corba 100 fashion it will moon carry was barely able to come to the corona. So, he gave a brief Hotspur basically. And it can be said that this is because the profitsystem used it. We it has become accustomed to use this idea and every single one of us Juma even though he didn't use it and hold it to Juma, but use it in this whole debate. And it shows us the comprehensiveness of this idea that in the law to either you know, law

00:20:30--> 00:21:12

that Allah commands to everything that is just one Sunday and perfection of manners, what he thought a little quarterback, and to be good to one's relatives, while young had a fair shot, you will moon carry World Boxing, and a law forbids lewd deeds and transgressions and evils, you're able to come to Allah come to the Quran, Allah is that monitoring you so that you think and you'll be rightly guided. So the chieftain said, You have indeed come with good. And you have called us to the best of luck and morals, your message is very good. And the Quraysh has lied against you notice even before the Prophet system has come, they know the Quran has come.

00:21:13--> 00:21:40

They know what the orange has said. And they're aware. And this is an important point, the message of the Prophet, or the phenomenon of the Prophet system had spread amongst the Arabs. And even the Belushi ban, they've never met the process of they know that somebody is from the kurush, who has a message that they have already been warned against. And when he presents the message, they tell him, the orange have already lied against you. And

00:21:41--> 00:22:30

your message is not what they have said. So I refer you to our share our elder honey urban place, and the apple pie stood up. And he said, I have heard what you have said, Oh, member of Porsche Yamaha chorus, which is basically their way of saying or person of Polish, I have heard what you have said. And I feel that if we leave our religion and our ways, and embrace your ways, after a first meeting, we've never met before, we haven't met again yet, ie the first meeting. This will be a hasty decision. But it might cause us harm in the long run. And we also have people we have left behind. Not everybody comes for hedge what percentage come for hedge? Right? We have also people

00:22:30--> 00:22:52

that that we have left behind whose advice we have not sought on this matter, and whose support is necessary. And so I think that we should wait. And you should wait. And we shall return and you shall return in next year. This is an intelligent response. And I also asked the advice of our military leader. And within even

00:22:53--> 00:23:32

within the What do you have to say? Notice clearly abubaker was right when he said these are wise people. These are intelligent people. These are people of nobility. No one man is making a decision. They're all referring to their elders. What do you say? What do you say? What do you say? And when their elder, the elderly? The most elderly person speaks? It is actually a very wise speech. What does he say? Look, I've only met you once. We can't just accept your message, even though it sounds interesting without thinking about it without asking our people. And this is if we just are hasty here. We might come later on to regret it and neither universe will be happy about this. So give us

00:23:32--> 00:23:56

time you take time. Let us go back to our people. And we will come back again. Miranda, where do you have to say more Thunder was their military chief Miranda said what our elder honey has said is true. And we will not take any hasty decision in this matter. And there is another matter as well. So we'll send that brings another problem. We are a group of Arabs who have

00:23:57--> 00:24:10

loyalties and treaties with two groups of people. Number one our neighboring Arab tribes and he mentioned them no need to go into more details. And number two kisser ah who is kisara

00:24:13--> 00:24:14

kisara Rose this album.

00:24:15--> 00:25:00

I saw this as a maroon Chris Rock is the assassinate Emperor Emperor kisara is this as so clearly These are people who are living in the bordering regions of the Persian Empire. So they're saying we have two groups of treaties, number one with the Arabs around us this will be towards the south number two with the Persians this will be towards the north or towards the east. Right. So within that said, As for the Arabs, we don't have any fear or worry about them. Whatever we do, we'll be able to manage our affairs. But as for kisser ah we have a deal with him to be neutral.

00:25:00--> 00:25:21

In all affairs in the Arabian Peninsula, we have a deal with him to be neutral. And and look at within that this is a very wise statement shows the guy knows what he's talking about shows he's a intelligent politician and military leader. And this matter of yours does not seem to be something that kings would approve of.

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

You're bringing something strange.

00:25:26--> 00:25:52

So he said, if we were to accept it, it would only be on the Arab side. If we're going to be half Muslims. If we were to accept it, it would only be in our dealings with the Arabs and not with our dealings with kisara. So the military leader brings forth a condition and he basically says, we would not be able to do anything

00:25:53--> 00:26:31

for you or against you Visser v. The Persians. You want us to help you against the Arabs if we choose to do so we will do it. We're not worried about the Arabs. But Kis Serrano, this was a superpower kisser Ah, this is the sassanid Empire. You know, the sassanids and the Romans were at each other's throats for 350 years, right? This was a mighty nation. This was a mighty nation, and each one every few decades would have victory over the other. We already talked about a definite memory battle room. Did we did did we get confused? Sometimes? Didn't we didn't talk about this one yet? Not yet. Okay. We will Charlotte will come into Sierra, and if Lambo Liberty Rafi

00:26:33--> 00:27:15

is you need the Romans and the Persians were at each other's throats. for 350 years, there was a battle between them. And kisser ah. And his empire is a mighty Empire. They use the Roman Empire the Persian Empire controls what what is now Iran. What is now Iraq. What is now avani. Stan, what is now Tashkent, Uzbekistan, this is a massive Empire. And the Romans are, of course, they began at the border of Syria now, right, the border of Syria and Iraq, roughly This region is where the border of the assassin is, and the Romans, they were fighting each other. Right? Some of you have seen this ancient movie 300. Remember that? Not that I'm using each other. But to make people understand this

00:27:15--> 00:27:55

movie. 300 is basically about this war between the Romans and the Persians. Not that I'm telling you to watch movies here. But I'm saying sometimes you guys don't know history will tell you this is what the history is about, right? This is a romanticized version of the Roman and the Persian Wars between these two superpowers. So this out of tribe said, We don't want any problems with the Persians. I don't have a problem with the Persians, if you want to be Muslims with the arrows basically, not with the Persians. And so the profitsystem responded, your response has been good and has been sincere, you're being fair. And you're being fair about your concerns. But listen to this,

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

a laws religion will only be helped by those who have embraced it fully.

00:28:03--> 00:28:13

Allows religion will only be held by those who have embraced it fully. And, and so for that he basically says this condition is not acceptable.

00:28:14--> 00:28:45

There is no such thing as half Muslims. A laws Deen will only be helped by Allah says no craniopharyngioma no. Good Hello facil me Kapha it doesn't work if you have Muslim. The Quran tried this before one day Kaffir one day Muslim and what did Allah said earlier you will kaffee Rouen la Abu Mata boon wala until after World War One Antara Director lakum. Dino comb. Walia, Dean, you can't be half half. Right. And so the profitsystem stood up to leave with Abu Bakar. And then he said,

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

and what if I were to tell you, and what if I were to tell you that

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

this matter of kiss Allah,

00:28:56--> 00:29:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you victory over the kingdom of kisser

00:29:02--> 00:29:08

and you will enjoy their land and their money and their captive women.

00:29:09--> 00:29:50

Would you then accept power to promise you this? Whatever the younger one said? Yes, of course by now, there's no question we would do this. Right. But they didn't believe that this would actually happen. How could it happen when the Roman Empire could not destroy the Persian Empire? Are you expecting us the blue Shaban to be able to conquer the sassanids. And so the Prophet system left them at this, and they did not embrace Islam at this stage. Of course, later on in the Fatimah. Phase, everybody embraced Islam, right. But they gave up embracing Islam now, and because they gave it up now, they gave up all of the riches and fortunes that the inside of them will have been

00:29:50--> 00:30:00

acquired. And this is an amazing prediction, that to Panama, even though the Profit System seems to be in a very dire situation, he hasn't

00:30:00--> 00:30:23

Obtain in a law that these lands only a matter of time that you're wanting, you're scared of kisara the time will come when you will be enjoying the palaces of kisana all of that wealth will be yours, if you only had faith. And what is really amazing is that this prediction was for kisara and not

00:30:24--> 00:30:29

any loss promises specific and true. Because Had it been for Kaiser?

00:30:30--> 00:30:31

It still hasn't happened yet.

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

But for kisser Ah,

00:30:36--> 00:30:44

what happened with Islam, when the Prophet system sent his letter to kisoro, right, and kisara what it gives rise to you all know what it gets

00:30:45--> 00:31:00

toward the letter up, right? The Prophet system said, because they told my letter up, Allah will uma zakum kulambu Masak, Allah will tear their kingdom up, like he tore my letter up.

00:31:01--> 00:31:47

And for 400 years, the Roman Empire could not damage the Persian Empire, like the Muslims dissolved it in two years. It is an amazing and to this day, by the way, historians are mystified to this day. historians are completely astounded How could this have happened, how it is literally I mean, if anybody were to have predicted that the Persian Empire would collapse, this would have been considered something you've gone crazy. And in fact, the opposite was true, that there was a feeling that the Roman Empire would collapse because the Persians were so strong. And if Lam Meem, holy battle room, that's the whole point the Persians won. And there was this fear that the Roman Empire

00:31:47--> 00:32:27

would have to give up Syria and Damascus for the Persians because Damascus was the key. Damascus was where the Persians were aiming for right. Little did they realize that Syria and Damascus would come into Muslim hands, and the Persian Empire in its entirety would collapse. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, animate them, Cahaba de Cana, there was nothing left of them, just like fables and tales and legends left. And it is one of the most astounding incidents in history if you understand what the Persian Empire was, the might. And if you see even on log onto Google and just type in the sassanid Empire, see the images, their palaces and testify on the pillars just go out of the middle of the

00:32:27--> 00:33:07

desert pillars that are like 50 meters higher, some just amazing, massive palaces in the middle of nowhere. And this mighty civilization was conquered by literally a group of Bedouins who had converted to a new faith without military might without the power without the cavalry. You all know rebel, even Ahmed and his story reveal even Ahmed and his story with the Emperor the Persian Emperor lucidum. Right, where the rostrum basically said, What are you guys doing here? We're gonna kill you tomorrow. Go back, and we'll ignore that you ever, you know, irritated us and scratched us. Rustom said to live in harmony. Have you gone crazy? You're coming from your land to attack us with what?

00:33:07--> 00:33:53

And for what? Go back. And we'll just forget about all this. Right? And of course roustan gave that brave response, right? That we have come out from our land, the nuclear generated ma Ba, da ba de la Riva durabilty back to get people out of the worship of other people and to embrace them into the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. And of course, go on and on. And it is amazing that within two years, the entire sassanid Empire crumbled and collapsed and it became into non existent history of the past all of these lands, Iraq, Iran, hora, son of Granny, Stan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, all of these lands, within a few years of the death of the Prophet system. Were all in Muslim lands, and

00:33:53--> 00:34:13

under Islamic control. And this is something the process I'm told to diminish a ban. Would you believe me if I told you that it's only a matter of time, and literally, the same people whom he's speaking to? Were the ones who conquered assassinator, not 10 generations, not two generations, the same group of people, if only they had faith?

00:34:14--> 00:34:49

You're scared of kisara would you believe me if I told you that you are going to be sharing their land this is this is shows us his yaqeen that even though it is a desperate situation, he has trust in Allah and Subhana Allah, this is exactly what happened. So we have some interesting stories. As we set up some of these there are other stories as well. Of course, the main story that we're gonna then take from here is the story of a small group of people who came from a city that the profitsystem was not too familiar with these people, even though he had visited it once or twice because he had a one. He had relatives from.

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

From his mother's side, his father's side. His father's grandmother was from yesterday. He had relatives there so he had visited once and on the way it

00:35:00--> 00:35:21

was on the way back from yesterday that his mother had passed away. Remember that they had gone and visited yesterday. So it was a group from yesterday from a small, obscure tribe that didn't register with the Prophet system immediately that the story of Islam would take a whole different turn. And before we get to there, we need to talk about the city of yesterday.

00:35:22--> 00:36:04

The city of yesterday was composed of three main groups of people, two of whom were Arab, and one large group of yahood. The Arab tribes were the most and the rich, and the hood we're going to talk about them in a lot more detail than a few months. But for now, they were the bundle. The bundle credo cart and the bundle Coretta, where did they come from? How did they get in the middle of Arabia? This is something we'll talk about later on. But for around 100 or so years, the city of yathrib had been a flourishing oasis. It wasn't an ancient city. It was a relatively modern city. And it had one of the only areas in the entire Arabian peninsula where the hood were living. Yes,

00:36:04--> 00:36:34

rip and hiber were the only areas in the entire ages where there were your hood, the only other closest to hood were in Yemen, far, far away. There was no other yahood in the entire Arabian peninsula. So the year that Abu Talib died the year that Abu Talib died, that's the 10th year of the Dawa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met the first group of the, of the people of yesterday, who had who would who were to convert to Islam. And

00:36:36--> 00:36:46

there were a number of things that happened in yesterday that facilitated this conversion, the most important was a battle that is called the Battle of black.

00:36:47--> 00:37:37

How to be black or Yomi, brass, the Battle of brass, that was the culmination of a civil war between the US and the hazaragi. That lasted for over a decade. So the O's and the has Raj were having a civil war, minor skirmishes over typical veteran issues, land rights, watering rights, grazing rights, typical stuff that just gets bigger and bigger, right, one person gets killed 2% Italia 10% typical standard stuff that happens small things get bigger and bigger and bigger, until finally they had a major all out battle. And that was the most severe battle that the ocean has ever had. And that was the Battle of broth. And this battle. It took place around three years before or two

00:37:37--> 00:37:46

and a half years before this meeting, ie around four to five years before they hit john. Right. It just says listen to this narration from Busan bahaya. Isha says,

00:37:47--> 00:37:57

The Day of brath in the Civil War, was a gift that Allah gave to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah works in his own ways.

00:37:58--> 00:38:18

The day of wrath was a gift that Allah gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why is it a gift? How is it a gift? He explains, it was because of brath that their unity had been completely fragmented. And their leaders had been completely decimated.

00:38:19--> 00:38:35

The Battle of brath killed the bulk of the senior members of the OSI and the has ranch to a such a severe battle, that it killed the bulk of their leaders. And those who were left were generally the younger generation.

00:38:37--> 00:38:43

And this younger generation had seen 10 years of blood and war, and they're sick of it.

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

And so they are

00:38:46--> 00:39:34

wanting something new. And they're wanting something that will give them meaning and purpose in life. And they themselves are young, not old. And so youngsters are easier to think and change. elders are set in their ways. There was one senior member of yesterday who had not died in the Battle of wife only one. And that was Abdullah had been obey even said you the only senior member who survived the Battle of blast. And it was his seniority that gave him that kibble and that the fact that he was to become the leader of later on, because he wanted to. He was the undisputed leader of Medina, in terms of seniority and rank. And had it not been for Islam. There would be no

00:39:34--> 00:39:50

opposition to him and against him. He was the senior member that is that is remaining behind and so eventually he of course becomes the leader of the Manassas, I'm jumping the gun here. Let's get back to what is going on. Now before the Prophet says that I met these people.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

There are indications that the message of Islam had already reached meet reached Medina and of them the story is that

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

suede,

00:40:01--> 00:40:46

suede, suede, suede in Psalm it was from the banjo which is from the huzur. Raj, and suede. They've been Psalm it was the poet of the Raj. He heard that there is this magician slash poet in the kurush News of the process of spread to him. So when he went for Hajj, this is before the Battle of life. This is before all of this. This is before the process of his asking political asylum. This is when he's just preaching to hate. So when he went to Mecca for Hajj, he hunted the prophecies of them down. Why? Because he's been warned against him. But because he's a poet. He's heard the Prophet system is a spectacular poet. So he wants to meet somebody of his own type. So he goes to the

00:40:46--> 00:40:58

Prophet system. And listen, look at his arrogance here. He says, I have heard that you have eloquent speech, I have something similar to you. We are both the same.

00:40:59--> 00:41:37

Because he's the poet of the heritage. And so, the profitsystem says, What do you have? Let me listen to it. So he recites his poetry, which I have no, of course, the eloquence is such that To be honest, even I have to look up words and whatnot, and I don't think even any of you will be able to understand it, but clearly it is at an advanced level, right? And he is even his Chairman even and others, not even him other books that I mentioned some of his poetry, which is typical, beautiful, classical, pre Islamic poetry, right. So he goes, this is what I have. The Prophet says, Adam says Heather has an MA in the Eisen, what you have is good, but what I have is better.

00:41:38--> 00:41:45

What you have is good, but what I have is better, because what I have is than zero Mirabella mean,

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

so so Wade said,

00:41:49--> 00:41:53

Can you hear? So the Prophet says and began reciting the Quran to him,

00:41:54--> 00:42:24

and suede was dumbstruck speechless. You can't compete with the Quran, you cannot compete with the Koran. And so So wait, let me think about this. This is deep. Let me think about it. So Wade returned to yesterday. And it was in that chair that the Battle of bluff took place, and he died in the Battle of breath. Later on his people, his tribes who said, we are certain that he died a Muslim,

00:42:25--> 00:43:09

there are some assumption of sweet, we are certain that he died a Muslim. There are also other references. One of them is to a young man, from one of the tribes of the hunter Lodge, that when the Prophet system approached him, he almost converted, but the chieftain of the hazard said to him, get back aquilegia get big Mind your own business, don't worry about this guy, we're if we're coming for another reason, don't worry about it. So he returned back to yesterday as well. And he was stabbed in the Battle of breath. And as he's dying, he began saying that the spear and the mermaid and the tequila, so pantalon, hamdu, lillah, Allahu Akbar, and he died with the the speed and damage coming

00:43:09--> 00:43:42

from him. And this is again before such there before, before, Salah This is of course, in those days, right? So there are references to Islam having reached yesterday, before, before any treaty of APA before before anything happening. So there are some stories, but the main conversion, the first conversion takes place in the 10th year of the DAO, the 10th. year, the same year, a lot of dice, a lot of dies, Ramadan or SHA one. Around this time again, we don't have exact dates, but roughly around this time, therefore, the next month.

00:43:43--> 00:44:25

Two months later, they'll start over again, we don't know exactly, but roughly because people would come before hedge and then stay and then go back after hedge. The profitsystem is making his rounds in Mena. And of course, he's concentrating on the big tribes, the blue curve, the blue kingdom, the blue hanifa. These are the big tribes. And by the way, as a footnote, as we always say, it is clear that the prophets ism is interested in the heavyweights, it's common sense. And you don't equate somebody whose conversion might lead to a whole tribe converting the same as somebody whose conversion might be prevented by the chieftain, as has happened, right? And this is a part of the

00:44:25--> 00:44:37

wisdom of Islam. So he's going on his way to the major tribes. And he sees a small group at acaba, you know with acaba, where the stones are thrown acaba, he sees a small group at Aqaba, close to what is now much to the life.

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

And he says my little home this time of because not with him, money will come. Who are you? So they said we are from the rich. So he thinks which has rich, it's not one of the big tribes. It's not one and he Abu Bakar is not there to help him out, which has an edge, the hazards that are from the neighbors of the hood, because he's trying to figure which has an agenda. what he's trying to do.

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

Wanting to some memory connections here, right? What which puzzlement? Is it the 100? What are the neighbors of the hood? Ie from yesterday? They said yes, has run toward the neighbors of the hood. So the process of them said,

00:45:12--> 00:45:46

when I speak with you, they said, Yes, go ahead. So he sat down. And he explained to them the teachings of Islam recited to them or are explained to them to hate and warn them against shook with the same passion, the same sincerity, the same zeal as used for the bundle, how do you find the bundle Kenda the bundle so all of the big tribes, even though they were about six people without any tent, this is not one of the rich tribes. This is not and the husband, by the way, will come to this later on the hazard edge work. The

00:45:47--> 00:46:24

not not the more rich richer, let's say they were the poorer tribe. The house were the ones who owned more. The elsewhere, the more business inclined. And the 100 were the ones who are the more farmers and laborers, right? And generally speaking businessmen to this day are the ones who have more money than the workers, even the doctors notice, right? You might get a good salary, but the real rich have to go into business. So it was the boss who were more into the business. And it was the husband who was the more into the the farming and taking care of the land. So the husbands don't even have a tent. They don't even have a large nothing, just six people sitting there. So the

00:46:24--> 00:46:55

processor said, Can I speak with you they spoke and he and he told them the teachings of Islam and he moved on. And sapan Allah, Allah azza wa jal had willed that Islam would be helped by this obscure tribe, whom the process of did not even recognize, not by the massive tribes with the mega glorious tribes of Kingdom and the bedroom, Caliban and Eva know, by one of the smallest tribes. And this shows us an amazing point here, that

00:46:57--> 00:47:03

we are never supposed to trivialize any opportunity that presents itself to us.

00:47:04--> 00:47:47

What are you doing? How do we know what will happen with this opportunity? When we do good, we might trivialize the person, but Allah knows this person will go and change an oma afterwards. And so Indeed, the process of him is concentrating on the elite, but he doesn't ignore the others. And that's the whole point. He's considered one of the powerful, but when he passes by the new hustler, he gives them the same passion, the same power, the same message with the same zeal as everybody else. And he moves on his way. And these six people convert to Islam, the first major converts from outside of Mecca, come from the new coasters. Now, why did that happen? I mean, why did these people

00:47:47--> 00:48:22

convert to Islam? Well, of course, firstly, we say that indeed it is up to Allah azza wa jal, whom he chooses. And Allah had chosen the people of yesterday, and the people of hazaragi, to become basically the first Islamic Republic. But secondly, and there are reasons other than Of course, any wisdom that works in alternative ways, right, that there's wisdoms that Allah had placed in front of us to see and benefit from, and of them is that the huzar Raj, were a group of people, the only Arab group in the region that had knowledge of monotheistic religions.

00:48:23--> 00:48:47

They're interacting with the hood. So they understand the concept of tawheed of risala and Nobunaga, of Riba and rituals of law and ethics coming from a book scripture, right? These are alien concepts for the Arabs, the Arabs don't know the concept of profits right? between the common man

00:48:49--> 00:49:34

dominating the public, so that you may warn a nation who's never had a profit before you. They've never seen a profit, but the hustlers know what a profit is. And the 100 understand what a book does, and the hustler edge, felt inferior to the hood, because the hood had a higher civilization than them. They could read and write. They who'd had madrasas, there who'd had places of worship, and the husbands were always and the officers were both of them, they were always feeling inferior to the hood, and they would flouted this neighborhood made it a point of we are better than you and we have a book and we have a profit and we have this and that, that you would flouted it and of

00:49:34--> 00:49:59

course, their religion does not allow conversion, right? their religion is ethnic religion. So it doesn't allow conversion, you cannot become one any if you wanted to, unless with great difficulty, and this Arab didn't even have these difficulties the Arab world at that time. So basically their flouting their superiority and not giving the outside hostage any opportunity to convert. And this is happening for generations and generations, right. So this

00:50:00--> 00:50:25

flouting of arrogance worked against them. Do you see how now? Right? That they are who they are claiming that they're superior? The huzar. Raj understand tauheed. Now they understand what it means to have a book. Now an opportunity presents itself and they have an opportunity to have the same civilization, the same type of book and law and ethics and morality that has been floated in their face for the last 100 years.

00:50:26--> 00:50:30

Additionally, they are who they were boasting against the Arabs.

00:50:32--> 00:50:35

And this is mentioned in the Quran. What were they saying? Who can tell me?

00:50:37--> 00:50:38

What is the verse?

00:50:43--> 00:50:51

Your own Adelina? Kapha bufala mucha humara fu Kapha Ruby, Allah references it indirectly.

00:50:52--> 00:51:17

What kind of stuff do an animal Dino kofoed This is the reference, what is the reference that you who would would say to the boss and the hostage whenever they win, these battles would take place because they would also got involved in the Civil War. They would also had battles with each other over, over these issues. And so they would, in their moments of irritation, would say to the Osen cottage, it's only a matter of time before we went over you

00:51:18--> 00:51:23

will massacre you down to the last person because we're waiting for a prophet

00:51:24--> 00:51:44

was about to come. And as soon as he comes, it'll be over. What can oh man Pablo. Yes, Steph do una either Latina cafaro they would say they're going to win over the pagans for them. A home out of food. When this what they were waiting for came to them kofoed will be they rejected.

00:51:45--> 00:52:30

They were waiting for a prophet to come. They were waiting for a new message there waiting for a new book. But when it came in the harsh Kaffir Ruby, right. So this boasting backfired. This arrogance backfired. The Oh send the hazards were all of a sudden the tables are turned. And they see an opportunity to embrace the religion, the faith, the man, the book that is Salah that they had been deprived of and deep down inside, they know it's got to be true. right because they've seen the civilization of the year hood. And so the six people who were with the Prophet system, they converted to Islam, and they returned back home spreading the message of Islam. And amongst them

00:52:31--> 00:53:14

were some of the famous of the Ansel all of you should know the name of Javon Abdullah, he is of the six, even though he was very young at the time, perhaps even preburner. But he was with his tribe. There was also an AMA, another famous Ansari, as it builds Murata, as I've been assigned. This aura has many stories in the early serum, all of these were of this initial six tribe and six converts, and they converted to Islam. And they went back and they began spreading the message of Islam. Until, in the next few months, everybody in the city of yathrib, which would be called Medina, in a year and a half, everybody had heard of the new message, and knew that some of their own had

00:53:14--> 00:53:45

converted, and they were curious and interested, what is this man? And what is his message that has caused six of our own to convert? And what is really amazing about this story, and, you know, to me, especially I've given an entire lecture, it is in another place just about this incident, to derive benefits from it, that the Prophet says Adam, was being equally sincere to all the tribes. And he's just literally like throwing seeds. Allah knows where they're going to be planted. Allah knows which one will give fruit.

00:53:46--> 00:54:18

And he plants the seeds in the hazard edge, and didn't expect anything to come from the hazard. He Himself said. So he himself that so that when I was in Makkah, Allah showed me that I will be immigrating to another land. So he knows there's going to be another tribe accepting him, right. And he showed it to me. And it was a land of greenery, a land of, of palm trees. So I thought that it might be in Yemen. He wants the big tribes. He wants civilization. He wants all over this right

00:54:20--> 00:54:20

here yesterday,

00:54:21--> 00:54:59

but rather it turned out to be yesterday. Right. And he then changed the name of your trip to Medina. And the point here, the prophecies of did not expect it to come from yesterday. Neither was yesterday on his immediate radar. But he gave the people of yesterday of the attention and Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him back the fruit. And this is an important lesson for us. As I said, we should never trivialize any opportunity. Any good that we see a potential to do good. Any type of hair, any type of Allahu Alem display.

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

We give our to what he's going to become who is going to do the Ola who are them is not only Allah knows best. And because our Prophet system did not trivialize the data, this initial seed of six people gave fruit and the next year, more than doubled the number of came back the next year, more than 10 times that quantity came back. And then next year, they demand it from the profit. So you're not going to live amongst those persecution for people who are persecuted you, you will come to us where it is an honor, and we will give our lives and our souls to protect you. Right that Dawa gave it tomorrow that planting of the seed gave its fruit in just three and a half years. And Allah azza

00:55:41--> 00:56:22

wa jal woman tequila Hydra Allah who Maharaja Zhu Min heyfield Allah will provide but you want to expect from where you won't know from where. But if you have Taqwa and sincerity, this is what we find from the prophets of the La Jolla who will send them and inshallah Next week, we'll come back and resume the dour of the people of yesterday, which was to be called Medina, and how Eventually, the tide changed so quickly, that within two and a half years, just two and a half years. That's it, an entire city could be demanding. We want you to come and be our leader. What an amazing change, not just we're going to adopt you and be one of our tribesmen as the Arab tribes, we're saying no,

00:56:22--> 00:56:49

as he was asking from the Arab tribes, he wasn't asking to be their leader. He was simply saying, adopt me and protect me so that I can spread the message and Subhana Allah, Allah subhana wa tada blessed him in a manner that of course would forever change history after that, and this is of course, the wisdom of Allah, the planning of a lot the power of Allah will resume Mashallah, next week. Now we will open the floor for questions and sha Allah and then break for Sadat reisha.

00:56:53--> 00:56:54

Questions about

00:56:56--> 00:56:57

this interim period?

00:56:59--> 00:56:59

This?

00:57:03--> 00:57:04

Yes, good.

00:57:15--> 00:57:21

I actually did say this. So let's you can remember, where are the Jannat in respect to the summer what

00:57:26--> 00:57:45

we said that it appears that the Djinn not are in the seventh heaven. And they might begin in the sixth because we have one gray wire that says that the roots of Sidra to monta are in the sixth heaven

00:57:46--> 00:58:32

and the sixth summer, so perhaps, the roots are in the sixth and then the janitor all the seventh, and perhaps the Jannat began in the sixth and continued to the seventh. We don't know that much detail. But we know that the very end of Jenna is of course for the dose. And Phil dose is the highest of the creation. And above the fear dose is the throne of Allah azza wa jal and therefore says the letter monta ns infinite dose said that Mota ends in for those and above that is the throat of a large surgeon. That's all we know. And to be honest, I personally do not believe that our minds can even comprehend or imagine that world or anything is beyond our comprehension. I personally

00:58:32--> 00:59:14

believe and if we cannot even understand how this entire creation is just the first summer what is beyond this? I mean, that's it, our minds are blank. This everything that we see is still within the first summer, summer dunya. This is some dunya what is beyond this, we can we can't even understand what is in this world. Right? Do you think will under so in my humble opinion, this is just words that we say as if an Ibis said there is nothing of the ACA that will understand except the names used Apple Apple agenda agenda garden garden, but that's that's the only thing that's the same. The realities of the apples, the realities of the the gardens, there's you'll never understand. There's

00:59:14--> 00:59:38

nothing of this world in the next he said except for the name, the soul there's this is what my boss said. And if this is for what Allah has given us explicit descriptions of how about that which Allah has not given explicit descriptions of and that is, what is in the other semi watt and is there other creation or whatnot, all of this will love without it? We don't know. Yes.

00:59:42--> 00:59:57

Did any of you who have accepted some indeed they did. Of course, Abdullah bin Salam is the greatest example. But there are others as well. I believe Islam was their most famous convert, but there are a number a handful, who did accept Islam and we will talk about this when we get to the root inshallah.

00:59:58--> 00:59:58

Yes, good.

01:00:00--> 01:00:09

In the first six converted, were there any members of the House around there at the time? Let's see the hazards were camped in their own camp.

01:00:10--> 01:00:48

The house? We don't we there are no reports of the house converting at this time. So we don't even know did they come did not come. All we know is that the Prophet system gave power to the village and six of the 100 converted. And even the next year when 12 people converted 90% of them were from the houses only one or two they were from sorry for husbands sorry, only one or two are from the house because still Islam was spread from family and friends. Right. So very few of the outset converted in the initially has Raj was one of the means to convert. And the reason of course, is that the hazard as we said were of the lower socioeconomic status and it's easier for them to

01:00:48--> 01:00:49

convert to Islam.

01:00:55--> 01:00:59

Asking for political asylum deniability. So

01:01:02--> 01:01:07

you comment on those of us who migrated from Muslim lands for economic reasons.

01:01:09--> 01:01:09

Sometimes

01:01:12--> 01:01:13

it's for United.

01:01:18--> 01:01:25

From a candidate history to hooli dunya uswe boo ha tinian kirikou. For hero to Villa Maharaja LA.

01:01:32--> 01:01:35

This is a very deep question which deserves

01:01:36--> 01:01:48

more response. But in a nutshell, firstly, realize that the Prophet system did not say that it is how long to migrate for the dunya or for a woman.

01:01:49--> 01:01:58

He simply said, If you do so, that's what you're doing it for. Correct. So if you migrated for a land for economic reasons,

01:02:00--> 01:02:34

is for economic reasons for hirato dilemma hace la right. So don't call this a shutter, a hijra. You have done a Luca we hijra from your land to this land. This is not a shutter a hedgerow. So this is not something that in and of itself, will get you any reward when you did the deed. Second question, can you convert the NEA? You can always convert in year, but the reward will be proportional to what you've done after the new year and not before. Okay. Third question.

01:02:36--> 01:03:14

What is the permissibility of making linguistic hedger from an Islamic land to a land that is not Islamic? This is something that our scholars have discussed in our times. And in my humble opinion, it is completely just isn't permissible with some conditions. And of those conditions is that he have the freedom to practice Sha Islam. Shire Islam means the main pillars of Islam, right? If any country does not allow you to practice the main rituals of Islam, you're not allowed to pray, you're not allowed to fast you're not allowed to

01:03:15--> 01:03:20

proclaim Your Islam. Right, then it is not allowed to go to that land because

01:03:22--> 01:03:30

of the law. He wants to go find a place where you're able to do that first condition, second condition that he has enough he man

01:03:32--> 01:03:34

from which and through which he feels

01:03:36--> 01:03:55

confident or expects to be able to avoid the major sins. And as for the minor sins, this is everywhere in the world, but at least the major sense that it shall avoid the Cabal. And the third condition he has enough in that he feels he is safe from doubting his faith.

01:03:57--> 01:04:34

Okay, so there's three basic conditions that need to be met. Number one, there must be freedom in the land. Number two, there must be enough a man that is able to live as a Muslim without any and this is of course, there's no there's never a guarantee. Rather, this is your, your personal one with a lot of zoa Jen, you can become the fastest even in your country. Right. And you can become a fast talker This land is also there has to be level one, there has to be telecon in a law and number three, enough freedom that you're not worried about you or your children or their beloved, becoming more than you protect your faith in this regard. Now as for the issue that some people have that the

01:04:34--> 01:04:40

only reason that it is allowed to live in a non Islamic land is if you are giving that way.

01:04:41--> 01:04:42

I

01:04:43--> 01:04:59

do not agree with this phrase in such an unconditional blanket manner because there is no evidence for it. Rather, if you are living in a land as a practicing Muslim for the sake of the dunya then

01:05:00--> 01:05:47

You are not committing any sin, and your reward will be for your Islam. No doubt, if you were to do more and above and beyond, this is good and you will get rewarded, but to make it a condition upon all of the Muslims, not only is this impossible because most Muslims are not qualified to give Dawa. It is also burdening them with something that Allah has not burden them with. Allah has burdened you with the five pillars with avoiding the major sins, do this and you are safe, and you will not be punished for not going above and beyond what this is. Now, by the way, that will also means people know you're a Muslim, this is that will tell us you don't have to go knocking on doors or preaching

01:05:47--> 01:06:14

and synagogues and churches, you You are a Muslim, your your your co workers know this, this is that way. Okay, your friends know this, your relatives, your neighbors notice this is that well, that's good enough. So you don't have to go above and beyond this point. Also, the point there are there was an extreme opinion that still is common to this day, you still find people saying this, that it is how long to live in a non Muslim land because the process of them said this and that the fact of the matter is all of these ahaadeeth

01:06:15--> 01:06:45

do not indicate that it is wrong to do so. Rather, there are authentic narrations that allowed Muslims of his time to live in non Muslim lands with conditions the most important is of course, the abyssinians. Right? Secondly, there is no doubt in Islam that we can apply these a hadith upon any way, there is no halifa there is no anything of this nature such that we say there is doubt in Islam and then there is that all right. Thirdly, there's a whole modern talk going on about

01:06:46--> 01:07:15

dividing the world into data, Islam and data Cofer and data this and data that where does it come from? And the fact of the matter is that these distinctions come from early fuqaha. Early scholars, they don't come from the Quran. There's nothing in the Quran about this. There's nothing explicit in the Hadith that divides the world into two or three or four, or five or six. And that's why earliest scholars divided the world into two or three or four or five or six depending on which scholar therefore,

01:07:16--> 01:07:57

when we understand this, then there is no problem in actually going back to the Quran and Sunnah. And redefining the territories of the world with a new description that is not found in the classical books, because this is not now if Allah had said the world is of two types palace, and the story is the process of he says the world should be divided into three palace and the story, but it's not. We don't find Quran and Hadith. Rather, this is from the HD head of the early scholars, and then they applied rules, data Islam that will help that will cover that a lot. What should each one be done? All of this talk generated in a particular political climate

01:07:58--> 01:08:41

meanie to our scholars, not the average Muslims, our scholars need to go back to the books go back to the Quran and Sunnah, and have a similar discussion. What does it mean to be a citizen in a Western democracy? What does it mean to be a citizen in a land that guarantees you freedom of religion guarantees your freedom of expression? Right? Can we take a book from the seventh century and open up data for these are the rulings and then cut and paste to America? In my humble opinion, no, we cannot do this. Right, we need to rethink things through and this is where one of the areas where I think reform is definitely needed, because it's not explicit in the text. So this is a deep

01:08:41--> 01:09:08

topic, I didn't think you'd realize the profundity of it. But this is a topic that many scholars are thinking about product from Oban has written many books about this and I agree with many of what much of what he has written, what it means to be a Western Muslim what it means to be European Muslim is a very good book and he is beginning the discussion and dialogue and it needs to be taken further than this. But inshallah so very profound question the bottom line, I have a statement that I say

01:09:09--> 01:09:22

the people who are the most concerned about hijra, should be the last people to ever do it. Stay here. And the people who are the least concerned about hijra, they're the ones we don't need we brother they go back and live back home.

01:09:24--> 01:09:28

So the very fact you're asking the question means what? Stay here.

01:09:29--> 01:09:57

Stay here, because we don't need we need because it means you're conscious of the religion means you're thinking of Islam and Eliza, which is commandment, we need you to stay. The American woman needs you. We need people like you. And as for those who couldn't care less about Islam, whenever see them in the masjid will lie they are better off going back home, right? Because their sins will be less and their Islam will be safer. Right? So the very fact you're asking me to call us You must stay here

01:09:59--> 01:09:59

yes

01:10:10--> 01:10:11

More than the average Muslim

01:10:13--> 01:10:44

brother is asking, Is there any extra reward for being Muslim in difficult circumstances? Of course there is. Of course there is. The Profit System Warren does the Sahaba of a time that would come were the one who is faithful to his religion will be like a cobbler the either Gemma will be like the one who is holding burning coals in his hand, imagine coal picking it up and holding it up with either jumbo and the problems that whoever does so we'll get a judo come scene Ming comb

01:10:45--> 01:10:51

the reward of 50 of you. Even though Sahaba were shocked, they said surely you mean 50 of them?

01:10:53--> 01:10:56

And he said no 50 of you.

01:10:58--> 01:11:01

So no, I am not saying it applies to America 2012.

01:11:03--> 01:11:16

But what does it show you to be a Muslim at times of difficulty will get more reward. The process of said how do you fit in was that a mama had Alibaba to fill her Raji.

01:11:17--> 01:11:26

calendula to Ilya worshipping perfectly at times of chaos and strife. It is like making higit or to me.

01:11:27--> 01:11:33

He talked about Hydra worshipping a lot of times of bloodshed, chaos, fitness,

01:11:34--> 01:12:01

being perfect in this time, it is like you're immigrating because that's what you're doing. Basically. That's what you're doing. You're leaving the chaos and worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Right. So clearly, there is no question that the one who worships a lot in difficult times will get more reward than the one who worships a lot of times of ease. And this is an inspiration and a shallow reason for us to look forward to our own situation and times.
