Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali, he will be mine. Mr. Barrett

00:00:19 --> 00:00:55

will be resuming from where we left off two weeks ago. We had a break last week because of the weather conditions. And if you remember, two weeks ago, we had discussed we had begun to discuss the preparations for the hedgerow. And we were talking about the two types of they as the two types of covenants that took place with the people of Medina, the first covenant and the second covenant of the bay, I said acaba oola. And a Aqaba a Sania. And remember that the second covenant it took place in the 12th year of the Prophet hood. And the main difference between the first and the second covenant who can remind me, what was the difference between the first and the second covenant.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:03

So which one is the woman's covenant? The first one was called the woman's covenant, but I took this up.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:16

There was no commitment. And there was no political commitment, there was no commitment to fight, there was no commitment to protect.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:58

Hence, this was called the women's covenant. And then the second covenant was called the covenant of war. Basically, this is the covenant where the profitsystem asks them to protect him, like they will protect their own women and children. And notice, and it's a key point here, the covenant mentions defensive protection, not offensive attacks, right. And this is going to come up in the Battle of butter, we're going to mention this again, that the Battle of butter was not a defensive battle. And so when the unsalted participated in it, the Profit System had to then basically ask them, are you agreeing? Is this fine with you? We're gonna mention this later on. But the covenant the second beta

00:01:58 --> 00:02:26

was about a defensive covenant. And therefore, the Prophet says to them said, you will protect me like one of your own. They asked, What will we get in return? The profitsystem said, what do they want in return? Jenna, you will get Jenna in return. Now, we had I think we had mentioned aside of endura, standing up and reminding them that before you give this covenant, I think we stopped over here if I'm not mistaken.

00:02:28 --> 00:03:17

Laura stood up. And he said, perhaps if we close the door, just close the door, maybe, but the outside noise. And he said that, or people Don't be hasty. Don't be hasty. We have traveled all this way from Medina, knowing that he is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know this to be true. But realize that this covenant is not like the first one. He's basically saying, right? realize that if you say yes to this, you will lose children. You will make women widows, you will have to fight the other people. And so if you're ready to do this, then take the oath or covenant, otherwise, excuse yourself. Now, perhaps a law will excuse you because you didn't stand up to the commitment,

00:03:17 --> 00:03:54

don't promise and then back out before you do this. So as husbands without a clearly he shows that he's a leader. He shows his thinking about the future. And of course, as it moves, Aurora has a lot more stories later on after this. One aside, said this, the people of the they're not yet called unsolved. We're calling them unsolved a little bit loosely here. They're not yet unsought. They're going to be unsought after that, we'll have to come to Medina. In fact, it's not even in Medina yet. Remember, it is yesterday, right? It's all going to be built up the people of the village and those are the people who would be the unsalted said, Oh aside, Remove your hand. We want to take the oath

00:03:54 --> 00:04:32

of allegiance from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so one by one, all of the 70 plus men took the oath of allegiance, and there were two women there, and they gave the verbal allegiance to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, as our issue said, that the Prophet says that I'm never touched a woman. That was not his maharam. It's definitely against the sooner whether it is haram or mcru has an if the love but there is no question that it is not of our shediac that men and women should be shaking hands or, or freely touching one another. Most scholars say it is how long a minority says that it is mcru but they all agree that it should be avoided. And the Prophet system

00:04:32 --> 00:04:59

never touched the hand of a woman, even in shaking hands, even in giving the oath of allegiance. So the two women gave their oath of allegiance verbally. They didn't shake the profits of the lesson on his hand. And all the while my boss was standing there, not pleased. He was not happy at what his nephew was doing. He felt very awkward. And he kept on saying to himself, I don't know any of these people. They're all youngsters. I haven't dealt with any of them. And an Ibis is thinking in the way

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

Have the God of all that you don't have the protection of the elders? Why would these people do anything for you? Because again, for them, it's all about loyalty. It's all about, you know, we all kind of understand the gang mentality. Whatever leader says goes in the gang. This is what tribalism is. If the leader says it, then the whole tribe has to follow suit. And above anything, I don't see the elders. These are not the people I know. These are all without their youngsters. And I don't know whether they'll fulfill their treaty with you or not. And of course, Allah subhana wa, tada had already chosen them for this issue. It is narrated, and even a sham. That wildest oath was going on.

00:05:40 --> 00:06:25

They heard a loud voice in the middle of the night, November, this is pre dawn. And if anybody's, you know, been outside and pre dawn, it's in the desert, it's deadly silent, and one voice can carry a long way. And as they're taking this pack, they heard a loud voice in the valley of minute. Remember, they're in Mina. And they're just in acaba, which is close to the Jamaat artists Valley behind the Jamaat, they heard a loud voice cry out, or people sleeping in the tents meaning, meaning the her judge, or people sleeping in the tense. Do you not know that a group of rebels a group of blameworthy people have gathered together with the saw bit to wage war against you? What is a solid?

00:06:26 --> 00:06:31

A Saba is mentioned in the Koran of sabi una when nosara right the term sabik comes in the Quran

00:06:32 --> 00:07:26

that Yahood and sabi una nosara. And the Arabs would call anybody who left their religion or Savi. They would call anybody who left their religion a sob. And many times when the Sahaba converted the news would spread or the Saba so and so has Sabah and Sabah for them meant to leave their religion and to become a monotheist. Now, just as a footnote, who are the Swabian that the Quran mentions in the Quran, in this in this Hadith, the term swaby own is not meant as the same as the Quranic one. I reiterate, the Arabs would call anybody who converted away from their paganism, saw but this is a generic term Saab, it means for them monotheist that has become Saba he's become a monotheist.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:33

However, the Quranic term for Serbian is clearly a group of people, right? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, that

00:07:35 --> 00:08:09

what is the verse of Baccarat under the habitability enter that in amarula Dean had one Masada was sabi una, Madame La Villa William will write the relievers and the Yahood and Asada and the sabi Ooh. So Allah is talking about a specific group of people. And just FYI, which is a bit of a tangent, but everybody always asks about this that who are the sabi on the sabi own are a group who go back It is said to even before Christianity, so much so that they claim to have a book from sheath, who is sheath

00:08:11 --> 00:08:13

who is obviously some prophet Mashallah, but who

00:08:15 --> 00:08:16

she is

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

the son of new

00:08:19 --> 00:08:26

sheath is the son of new, right. And so they say that they have a book from that time.

00:08:27 --> 00:09:07

And they still exist in our times, very small quantity probably less than 30,000. Still alive. 30,000 is one of the smallest religions in the world. And I looked up some of their beliefs in our code, and culture. And it's very strange that they still have a concept of bahara they still they don't eat pork. They, they have to do hosel after Java, they have certain rulings that clearly they show they have some type of shediac and they believe in these days, they believe in the stars, that the stars have some type of power and effect on them the sabi moon, and they come from the land that is the cradle of civilization that has all the religions and the subcultures and the * of the

00:09:07 --> 00:09:08

world, which is

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


00:09:13 --> 00:09:24

head office, the land where everything comes from. So they are actually these days are all at office, and they are called maybe some of you have heard of them. They don't they're not called sabio. In our times, they're called

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

the restrooms are made use.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

Kurds are an ethnicity.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

Kurds are an ethnicity they are called.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:41

Love. Amanda Yun,

00:09:42 --> 00:09:52

have you heard of this any of you? Huh? manda Ian's they're called manda Ian's Amanda Yun and they still are around. This is the salty one.

00:09:53 --> 00:10:00

These days they're in Iraq and then there's a huge amongst them in America obviously as well because they came

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

as refugees, so there are Mandaean groups here in America as well. Anyway, that's the point getting back here. The term Sabah, used by the Irish means leaving leaving paganism to monotheism. The Quranic term for Sala amines as we said the man that you now getting back here, so they heard a loud voice scream out are people of the tense Don't you know that there's traders plotting to wage war against you under the solvit with a capital as the big sabie meaning of course, the prophet SAW the lahardee he was sending them so the voice comes out to awaken the people in the tents in the middle of the night. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this is as even

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

the shavon of acaba

00:10:44 --> 00:11:28

guys have even received the shape on of acaba I swear by Allah Yeah, I do Allah, I will deal with you. So shavon felt so overwhelmed at this time, that he actually went public crocheted on his private, right shaitaan is hidden, he rarely comes out and screams, but he felt so overwhelmed that things are gonna change now that he actually screamed out to the human world. And he screamed out to the people of the tents that do something, here are the the traders that have come to kill you do something. And so the Profit System, supposedly he knew the name of the shaytaan he knew which one this was. And this also shows that and we know this from other things as well that the shout out

00:11:28 --> 00:11:55

they live in abandoned valleys. The Shelton live in the places that people don't frequent, and they have leaders and they have so this is the leader of the valleys shaytaan, the shale thing of the valleys of Alabama. And he said this is the leader of the Shelton of Alabama, as urban Rosa and the names of the Shelton are always very weird and convoluted with lots of consonants and vowels. And the profitsystem obviously knew the name of the shape on an agenda and he said well, I will deal with you

00:11:56 --> 00:12:38

the answer when they heard this they said yada sutala should we not? Should we not launch an attack now? If they're going to fight? Uh, shouldn't we preempt the attack? And we're 70 strong we all have our swords they are unarmed remember? It's hedge remember it's hedge they're not armed. In hedge you're only allowed to carry one weapon and that is the weapon that you use to fight against a an animal if it attacks you right it's not the fighting sword there's different types of Swords they don't have the the fighting swords they have a few like a defense sword right? sword to just to protect yourself or in case something happens emergencies work. So the unsolved said were 70 strong

00:12:38 --> 00:13:19

and they are not prepared. We can we can attack them in the middle of the night and we can have a huge like victory over them. The prophets of Salaam said lamb Umar Vitaly, I haven't been commanded to do this. This is not my methodology. I have not been commanded to just go kill the people like this lamb Omar bizarrely This is a key point we'll come back to this I have not been commanded to go kill these people. When this news spread the unsought then basically the the meeting wrapped up quickly, the bay I was finished, and they went back to their tents silently just as they had come. And the next morning, the delegation from the orange was sent to every single camp

00:13:21 --> 00:13:58

because the news has spread the rumors have spread. A delegation from the Quran is sent to every single camp that Do you know of any meeting that took place with this man, Mohammed Salah? Do you know anybody who met Did anybody from your tribe Beat until finally when they went to the 10th of the huzar Raj. When they went to the tensor the hazard remember every tribe has this area when they went to the tents of the Hudson Lodge, the courage come in and they say who amongst you has met with the Prophet Mohammed has met has any amongst you met with this man? And so the the Muslims remained silent. And the pagans spoke up and they said no By Allah, we have no idea what this is we swear by

00:13:58 --> 00:14:37

Allah that none of us have gone to meet him. And the Muslims remain silent. They didn't say anything because they're not allowed to lie. And the courage or mean sorry the the pagans of the hazard because again, you're not all Muslims. Now. They're the ones who basically spoke up and the Muslims went in behind that oath and the matter was resolved. And this clearly shows this clearly shows that the unsought are developing their Eman their their their strength in Allah subhana wa Tada, their courage, their fear, not only do they say they're the ones who say, For how long are we going to take the Prophet system and let him be persecuted? For how long will we allow him to be repelled

00:14:37 --> 00:14:59

from one tribe to another begging for protection? Why don't we adopt him? Why don't we take him on? And then they are the ones who volunteer. What if we launch an offensive even though this was wrong at the time, but it shows their Eman and the contract had not been for an offensive Jihad that had been for a defensive jihad. But automatically they're eager to protect the process and therefore when the Battle of other took place

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

Which was offensive and not defensive. They all volunteered. None of them held back and said, Hey, hold on, you only promised does defensive. None of them had that type of Eman that they're shortchanging, even though the letter of the law was defensive. That's what the treaty says that you will protect me against attack like you protect your own children, just like you protect your own family. That's all I'm asking protection. And when the time came the answer, none of them held back and they went forward like the greatest of the Muslims. And indeed, we talked about the blessings of the unsought over and over again. And that is why the prophets of Salaam said that this hadith in

00:15:36 --> 00:16:22

Bukhari and Muslim and he said this after the conquest of Makkah, he said, Lola, were it not for the hegira Lacan to him for a minute on salt, I would have been a man from the unsought it's the Hydra that's forcing me to be a monkey because I was born there. But other otherwise I would have been a person of the unsought. And if the unsolved went in one direction, and all of mankind went in the other direction, I will follow the direction of the onslaught. This is a hadith praising the unsought and the Prophet system said and this hadith is in Buhari, so bull Ansari mineral Eman simple Arabic everybody should understand how bull Ansari minute a man that loving the onslaught is

00:16:22 --> 00:17:04

a part of a man and another Hadith the Prophet says Adam said, hating the unsought is a sign of hypocrisy. hating the unsought is a sign of hypocrisy. And therefore, as Muslims we are commanded to love not only all of the Sahaba the Mahajan have a type of love of the unsought have a type of love. And in another ID the Prophet system said a llama filled in on sod when the Urbana in Ensenada ALLAH forgive the onslaught and the children of the unsought and on and on so many of the blessings that are given for the onslaught. And of course, one of the most beautiful ones, after the conquest of Makkah, when the Prophet says, and I'm, especially after the Battle of her name, and thought, if,

00:17:05 --> 00:17:47

when the Prophet system gave many of the leaders of the kurush, and the people of her name, and the people of se, he gave them large amounts of money, he gave them large amounts of money, especially the people of thought, if they were not willing converts, the people of the people, one of the last tribes to convert, and the people who named as well. So he gave them lots of money to one of their leaders, he gave an entire valley full of sheep says, like, few 1000 sheep. And the answer felt a little bit like, Look, we're the ones who participated, were the ones who fought were the ones who got all of the booty, and now it's being given to them. So they felt something a news spread, that,

00:17:47 --> 00:18:20

you know, there's a little bit of mumbling, and after all, they are human, all of us, you know, we are human at the end of the day, and they felt something that how come we're the ones who fought, and yet they get the bulk of the booty, of course, they got their share. But then there's an extra amount that is given voluntarily. And that's the rules of distributive aneema are a different topic, but it is up to the commander, every single warrior gets a share. And then it's up to the commander what to do with the surplus, if he wants to give it back to the army was to give it to beta and he wants to give it others. So the process of in that particular battle didn't give it back to the

00:18:20 --> 00:19:00

Warriors the surplus he gave it to these particular leaders who has whose mind was very weak. As you know, one of the types of Zakat is what we're left with the hollow bone, right to gain their to gain and you know, the tribal leader, what did he say, when he got these sheep, he went back to his people and said, Oh, my people embrace Islam, for will law, he I have met a man who does not fear poverty, he does not love wealth, ie He must be a prophet. So he told his people to embrace Islam. And that little bribe basically made him genuinely convert, that no human being can give this many sheep, you know, and feel nothing in his heart. This is a man who is truly a prophet of God. So in

00:19:00 --> 00:19:10

fact, it worked. But again, getting back to the issue here, the unsolved felt something in their hearts. You know what the prophet says that I'm said he called a meeting just for the unsolved, none of them had, you know, just for the unsolved.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:40

And this also shows By the way, and again, we love all of them, but then we'll hide you don't, no doubt Allah had preferred them over the ensemble. Right, the Maha juden Allah had preferred them over the unsought and Allah says in the Quran, that while hygena one on salt he always mentioned whenever Allah mentions the both he mentions Mahajan first. And there's no doubt that the level of the Mahajan is higher. The murmuring was not amongst the Mahajan. The murmuring was amongst them saw, so he made sure there was no Mahajan in the tent. And then he said

00:19:41 --> 00:20:00

he reminded them on site didn't I choose you of the people didn't leave my people for you? Didn't and then he mentioned this hadith here. Were it not for the agenda, I would be a person of the unsought and if you want in one direction and all of mankind went into the direction I would go in your direction. And then he said that beautiful phrase on

00:20:00 --> 00:20:40

Or, or people over the unsought Are you not happy that these people go back with sheep and did ham and dinar and you go back with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And of course they began, you know, crying at this because how true I mean Subhan Allah, how true you they're going back with these, you know, I have chosen you. I could have stayed in McKenna, but I gave you my word. I gave you my word at the time of Alibaba, right. Even after the conquest of Makkah. The Prophet system did not stay in luck. Because of this. Acaba. He said, that's what the unsaved said. Remember, their their fear was, once you win over everybody, will you then leave us? That was their fear? So he

00:20:40 --> 00:21:16

said, No, a dumb a dumb, will huddle huddle. And this is an expression of epic, which means my blood is your blood, my destruction is your destruction. We are now one. We are now one. And therefore when this incident happened, he reminded them way back in this, and he said, Look, I'm coming back with you. And everybody else was going back with money and cheap and golden dinar, Aren't you satisfied with this? And of course, that was the last of the murmuring. And this shows us the wisdom and the leadership of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now before we move on some wisdoms of building up the answer. And again, I stress that I've said this point before, but will lie, it is

00:21:16 --> 00:21:21

one of the most important lessons, in my opinion, from these stories, and that is

00:21:22 --> 00:22:03

the element of being genuine and sincere at every opportunity that is presented to you. This is for me, one of the most important lessons here that the Prophet system was not expecting victory to come from this small village. He was not it was not even on his radar. He was concentrating on the larger tribes. And this is common sense. Nothing wrong with that. But he didn't trivialize the smaller tribes, six people from husband he didn't even recognize manual comb has Raj, which has Raj the hazard edge of the year who the year three, he couldn't even didn't register, which has an edge. Right? They said yes, six people that didn't even have attend that time. They're sitting in the

00:22:03 --> 00:22:40

middle. They're not like the big ones that he's going to condemn the benaki Lab there is no this is small tribe. But this is what we do. You don't know the opportunity. You don't know the person you're speaking to who is going to become or who he might be. And you don't know. You don't trivialize any opportunity. So he didn't trivialize and look, he planted the seeds. And these seeds became the entire Islamic Republic. Also look at how the process and build them up now this entire series is taking three to three and a half years. Firstly, he talks to them, they think about it. They said Well think about it, some of them perhaps converted and they die, we don't know. But it is

00:22:40 --> 00:23:15

then said that they did. The words of mouth were going on. So some of them it is said they died as Muslims and Allah knows best. They come back the next year, the first batch of actual converts, so they are given the layout of women. Then they come back the third year, and by the way, the second year the process and then sends the most hype, and he sends them somebody to teach them. Islam spreads to every household in Medina, in one year. Islam spreads to every single tribe, some people convert, they come back the next year more than 75 roughly come back and for every one of them, there must be at least two Muslims in Medina. So we have already 200 Muslims in Medina, right in one

00:23:15 --> 00:23:35

year's Dawa, and they invite the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back also notice the the wonderful ways of Allah. And here's the point when a law is on your side, Allah will work things out for you. Look at how many things were set up. Firstly, the civil war between the husband and the house, the words of broth.

00:23:36 --> 00:23:45

Isha says, these were a gift Allah gave to the Prophet system, but the gift was being given when the Prophet system didn't even realize he needed one.

00:23:46 --> 00:24:29

Right? When I thought of is alive, the words of warfare going on. You see, Allah has his plans. Simultaneously, what's happening in Medina is unknown to the people of color. It's not relevant to them. But a lot of Virgil has a plan here. Things are happening in the world, we might not understand. But there's a divine plan, that everything will become clear to us. Also notice the irony of that group of alligators in Medina who felt themselves superior to the pagans. And they kept on boasting over the pagans, the unsought, basically, we are better than you, we have a book, we have a prophet, we have a civilization, you have nothing, and our Prophet has promised us that

00:24:29 --> 00:24:35

one prophet is going to come and when he comes, he will be the Conqueror and we will kill all of you.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:56

So for decades, for centuries, this is being instilled in them, right? Notice this, that law actually flips against the very people who are giving the Dawa. Right? the very people who are saying this, they don't accept the message, and the people whom they're mocking

00:24:57 --> 00:25:00

they are the first ones to accept it because it makes sense

00:25:00 --> 00:25:36

Please sense now we knew that a profit was coming. We knew that somebody will be coming to preach the message. We've been hearing this for generations and centuries. Obviously, this is the person, right? Again, it's the mysterious words of Allah subhana wa tada that they are trying to consider themselves superior. But in fact, the people whom they think are inferior are really the ones who are superior. And again, these are the ways of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also notice as well, how the man slowly grows in the unsolved we already pointed this out that they became brave, they wanted to protect the Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them. And it's important to point out, they were

00:25:36 --> 00:26:18

the ones who offered to sponsor the prophecies in the process and didn't ask to come to Medina, they're the ones who said, Come and we will protect you. And so his condition was okay, if you're going to protect me, yes, I'm going to come. And this is a very important point to point out that he did not impose himself on the people of Medina, the people of Medina wanted him to be the ruler. And initially, they were not the majority. But as the people converted, they became the majority. And as they became of the majority, then the tensions arose. And that's going to be a constant theme of the Medina and of the Medina and Sierra. Notice as well. The important phrase when the unsolved or the

00:26:18 --> 00:26:53

Neo onside, if you like the people going to become the Ansel one day say, why don't we just kill all of them? Why don't we just launch an offensive, they're all sleeping in their tents, right? Every one of us takes a few tents, and we'll just will cause huge damage. Because again, this was the middle of the night, it would have been a * massacre would have been a massacre of immense proportions, because they're unarmed. And they're not expecting an attack is the last day of Hajj, what did the process them say, this is not our religion. I haven't been committed. This is not what I've been commanded to do, or what our religion is not about war and bloodshed and killing. That's

00:26:53 --> 00:27:31

not what Allah told me to do. Even if we have the upper hand that you're 70 and you have your swords with you, and they're sleeping in their tents know, our religion is not about violence. Allah didn't tell us to go kill the people know them Omar to be dyadic. Allah didn't tell me to do this, I have been commanded to do this. This is not my religion, let us be persecuted, we're not going to be killing them like this in their sleeps. So clearly shows us that at such a time when, for the first time in the history of Islam at this point, the process then finally has a mini army, compared to what is going on 70 people that has a mini army, and they're all with their swords. And if he wanted

00:27:31 --> 00:28:12

to get retaliation, to get revenge, to make a statement, now was the time to do it and then run to Medina, he could have easily done that. But once again, this is not what our religion is about love woman metallic. And then again and again we find the clear message of Islam Islam is not about violence and bloodshed. Even in such a situation when the orange have done what they have done. This is not what I have been commanded to do. clear example here that we can quote over and over again to those who say that Islam is a violent religion. Also notice the beauty of the preparations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is a very wise obviously the wisest of all human beings.

00:28:12 --> 00:28:50

This meeting is taking place in the middle of the night on the last night of Hajj, everybody is dead, tired. Everybody is sound asleep. The next morning, they're going to be going back to their places. The 13th of the hedger right, the next morning is the end of adger. That's it. And so the meeting is taking place when the people leave at least suspected. And it is taking place literally under their noses in the next Valley. He's also station people. Id and Ibis Ibis comes with him to represent Ali and Abu Bakar. As we already mentioned, were stationed as lookouts to make sure that nobody is coming. And if they are, they're going to be warned. Notice he's the Prophet of Allah

00:28:50 --> 00:29:22

says, and he knows the law will protect him. But there must be a plan. Tie your camel, then put your toe awkward in Allah, there must be a plan. Even the profitsystem is planning a logistical sensible plan in the middle of the night away from the eyes. We're going to meet at this time, this is what we're going to do we have to look out here, if this is the Prophet, Muhammad's Islam and he knows Allah will protect him without any doubt. How about us, we need to also have a vision, we need to have a methodology we need to have a realistic pragmatic plan taking into account the situation of our times.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:59

Also notice as well, that clearly and this is not being apologetic. It is a fact that there is a clear participation of women, even in these matters, that the process didn't say, keep your women in the tents don't bring them. He they came, they participated. And he took their oath, except that he didn't put his hand in their hand. Right. So women clearly have a role to play. And by the way, this treaty or this covenant was not the covenant of women. Even though these are women, this is the covenant of war, right? Even though these are

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

Women, the actual promise that they gave was the same as the other men. And this clearly shows us that, no doubt, I mean, women and men are different. And there are differences that allow, as you clearly mentioned, but still women have a role to play. And sometimes that role is going to be a public role. And the process of didn't say, oh, you're women, I don't see any need for you to participate. No, he took the oath from these two women. And indeed, they lived up to that role of the stories that we have the the names of these two were new sabe into gap and smart Binti amor, as far as smart, we don't have any details, you understand that? It's a sad reality that most of us

00:30:37 --> 00:31:15

have. We don't have lots of details about right, this is just a sad reality that most of the Sahaba if we even know two or three things about them, it's a big deal. We realize that you know, the the names that we hear all the time, my shoulders, the big names Oh, but when I'm with my we can write books about them. How about the rest of them? And there were 10s of 1000s 10s of 1000s of Sahaba. How about the rest of them, the bulk of them, we don't even know their names, not even their names. Those who participated in the final farewell pilgrimage, who knows who they are, you know, from all over from all over Arabia, they came from every tribe, we don't even know their names. And for those

00:31:15 --> 00:31:33

whose names we know, sometimes we don't know anything other than the name because the headset has their name in it. Right? Because again, imagine if we were to document all the people of Memphis of what generation How is this possible? Who's going to remember? So no doubt the same thing happens here. So for asthma, Binti for asthma.

00:31:35 --> 00:32:13

We don't have any stories I tried to look up at I could not find anything from a smartphone camera. All that we know is that she was the cousin of why they've been given. Because why there's a unsightly why the bingeable the famous, the President said, the one who knows how long and how long the most is more. This is her cousin, this is his cousin. As for new Saber, we have quite a number of stories. And this clearly shows that when this I'm sorry, this this this Sahabi took this oath, she understood what it was, and she lived up to it. No Saber, Binti cab participated in the Battle of boyhood, and she was severely wounded with over 12 wounds in the Battle of boyhood. She had 12

00:32:13 --> 00:32:47

wounds by the end of the battle of Auschwitz. She also witnessed the battle read one and she gave the oath again to the profitsystem at battle read one. Do you all remember back to that one with Earth minded man, I found the rumor spread he's died. This has been our third one. Right? And she was there as well. So she witnessed that oath as well. And so she becomes one elite and another elite because these are two separate blessings. These are badges of honor. These are real badges of honor, not the fake ones that people put up. This is the real badge of honor. She gave the oath of October and then she gave the oath of Route one. Her son became one of the generals under hotly

00:32:47 --> 00:32:48

debated worried and

00:32:50 --> 00:33:32

he was martyred in front of her eyes. She was fighting alongside Holly who lead against Muslim al Qaeda was the name al Qaeda in the words of Rita and her son was martyred in front of her eyes by him was saying to me, he cut him to bits in front of her eyes. This is Miss Ava, and she participated in the war against the Roman she's now in her 60s. And she goes in she fights against the Romans in the Battle of Yarmouk, and her hand was cut off in that battle. As an old lady, she's still fighting behind how to do New Orleans in the Battle of Yarmouk, and her hand was cut off. And then we don't know what time she died or anything. After this. The history basically dries out, I

00:33:32 --> 00:33:59

tried to look up as much as I could about her. These are the tidbits that we found. But what is interesting, she gave the oath of allegiance to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And she lived up to it. She lived up to it at every opportunity in Makkah, in sorry, in Medina, after the process of his death, and even in the land of the Romans, because he had moved to place basically, in the land of the Romans, she goes all the way up there, as well, as the panel shows, again, this is a lady doing as much as she has done

00:34:00 --> 00:34:42

clearly as well. doesn't need to be said the tactics of shaitaan, the desperation of desperation of shavon, here is shavon. Generally he is hidden, and yet now he becomes so overcome with anger, so overcome with jealousy and hatred. He's calling out to the people to do something because he cannot do anything. And this shows us again, the desperation of shaitaan as Allah says, In the Quran, that, oh, you who believe shavon is a clear enemy to you. So take him as your enemy, initiate another Kumara do one, but definitely do I do. And this is clearly manifested over here. And one final point before we move on. We are already sensing a change, beginning for the first time. And in fact, this

00:34:42 --> 00:34:59

ironic what our boss said, because that's exactly what the point is. These are new faces. I haven't seen them before. Right? That's actually very true. These are new faces. There's a new phase beginning, right? a new sense a sense of for the first time these people are saying let us defend against you.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:43

Let us fight against you. And from a time of humiliation and weakness overnight, the Muslim shall be transformed into a state of power and reserve, which is going to continue to grow and grow and grow. And this is the change from Mecca to Medina. And thus the second bar was completed and the unsought returned home even more excited, waiting for the profits of the long winding, he was setting them to come to their city to come to their new town, the city of the trip, that would eventually be called the Medina to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, also again before we move on, another very important point to be mentioned here. And this point is one that has very clear ramifications in our

00:35:43 --> 00:36:30

modern era. When we look at the zero this is an important point. I did understand this when we look at the zero. We find the Profit System utilizing different tactics, different methodologies and different visions for different circumstances. We have the early Tao of Mecca, we call it the private Dawa. We had the public nonconfrontational that was in Makkah, we had the political asylum, immigration to habeas, tinea Habesha, we have as well the political state emigration to Medina, which is going to happen now. Right. In the Medina and phase we also have times of peace and times of war with the people of Mecca, right, sometimes all out hostility, sometimes peace treaties, such

00:36:30 --> 00:36:41

as they be, right. We also have all that war with all of the tribes such as Azov when they come and attack, this is all the tribes. Now, the question here that arises,

00:36:42 --> 00:37:31

does this mean that we should take the final phase that the process basically died upon? Or are all of these phases equally legitimate based upon the circumstances and the situation? Do you understand the question here, right? We see multiple phases in the life of the Prophet system, multiple phases. The question is, are all of these phases equally valid, such that we choose which one is the one that's conducive to our situation? Or are all of these phases merely like the prohibition of alcohol, it didn't come down once. Came down gradually, right? Initially, Allah says Hammad has a lot of evil, some good that Allah says, don't pray when you're drunk. Then Allah says, that, avoid

00:37:31 --> 00:38:11

alcohol. So this piecemeal, we don't go back to the original understandings of the original verses, which basically meant you could drink at night after he could drink. That's what the verse means basically, don't drink in the daytime drink at night, basically, as the understanding so are these phases, consecutively abrogated one after the other, such that we have to go to the final or are they all equally valid, this is a classic controversy, it's not a modern one, goes back to the earliest scholars, and a small minority of them. And the most hardcore in this was the under Lucien scholar, Ibn hasm had been has him was the most hardcore, he said, all of the earlier phases cannot

00:38:11 --> 00:38:11

be resorted to,

00:38:13 --> 00:38:14

we must go with the last phase.

00:38:16 --> 00:38:56

And that is all out offensive war. And he was writing at a time of political the beginnings of the decline of under this pressure, there's a desperation here, we need to do something even has him witnessed the glory era, but he's begun seeing the decline. So there's a level of desperation that unless you do your something, we're gonna we're gonna lose all of this. And that's exactly what happened in under those as well. However, this is a minority opinion, the majority of scholars have always understood that these phases are not abrogated, there's no reason to consider them to be abrogated, right? All of these verses still apply in every situation and phase. And therefore

00:38:56 --> 00:39:12

Alhamdulillah we thankful that our religion has given us many options politically, this is a key point. And let me be very frank here. It's a difference that I have with many of the Islamic groups in the world, that they only have one vision for the home.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:38

You understand what I'm saying here? Right? I can be even more Frank. Well, I don't mind. The one the Jamaat e Islami, the husband read all of these groups as this is as Frank as I can get, okay? They have one unified vision for the entire oma, whatever that might be. And in my humble opinion, this is to be very gentle. This is not very wise or precise or academic. You seems to be

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

not very gently, naively foolish. This is my position that you're going to have one unified goal for the whole oma doesn't work that way. Every group of people needs to look at their own situation. Every group of people needs to see what is happening in Pakistan is not what is happening in Egypt. What is happening in Egypt is not what is happening.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:10

In Tunisia and Algeria, what is happening in Algeria and other Muslim lands is not what is happening in America somehow, even in western countries, what is happening is France is not what is happening in America.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:51

In order to study the political climates of every country, you find so many scenarios, so many. So, in my humble opinion, this is why I disagree with the basic premises of some of these groups. And with respect to all of them, there's good in all of these and there's mistakes, we're all humans, we're all have our good and our bad. My point is very simple. The scholars of every locality need to study the zero fresh and the new need to study it in light of their circumstances, because the Sierra will always be a source of inspiration, a source of model, a source of looking at how to live our lives. After all, he is role model for all of us correct. And so every single group of Muslims

00:40:52 --> 00:41:30

should always go back to the Quran. And Sunnah should always go back to the seat of the process, and find for themselves that which is the most suitable for their time and their place. And in my humble opinion, is very clear that and I've said this many times, that one of the models that is closest to our model is that of the Muslims of India, one of the models that is closest, and of course, you're never going to get 100%, you know, hand fitting to a glove, that's not going to happen. But you have an overall model that you take as a basic example, the Muslims who have been senior had no political ambitions to conquer Amazonia, none whatsoever. Their goal was to live peacefully. And it is

00:41:30 --> 00:42:09

narrated that some people also converted this is free land at the time there had negus, as we know, converted, it is also narrated, even though there's there's nothing authentic. But there are a few like legends in early books, nothing within it's not. But there are rumors, if you like in the early books that some groups of obvious Indians converted to Islam. But that's, besides the point, the main point that we all agree upon, they had no political ambitions to challenge the authority of the status quo. They had their business to worship a lot to be free in their daily rituals, and the political system is what it is. And this is a basic premise that we as American Muslims can use. I'm

00:42:09 --> 00:42:44

not speaking about Muslims and non Muslims in Asia, that's not my business. I can comment as a human being but I'm not an expert in their affairs, let the scholars of those lands deal with it for us as Western Muslims, and in particular as American because even Western Muslims have differences, right? France is getting much more xenophobic right now, you know, Sarkozy just said yesterday, or is it today that we have too many immigrants in France. And you know what he means, you know, what he means by this, you know, there's one large group of immigrants and that's Arab Muslims in France, we have too many immigrants, we have to do something. By the way, that type of talk is really bordering

00:42:44 --> 00:43:17

on the final solution more and more. This type of racism is basically reminiscing us reminding us of the 30s of Germany, this type of talk, and Allah knows what's going to hold but my point being the scholars of every land need to look at their own situation. And in my humble opinion, is very clear that the CFO gives us many alternatives, not just one vision, no doubt, there is a perfect vision. And that's the conclusion. There's no question the time will misc. There's no question that that is the perfection. But does this mean that all of the others are invalid? No.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:27

We have options to choose from and that's, I think one of the beauties of the Sierra. Now, after the Battle of acaba. Sorry, not the Battle of the Treaty of Aqaba.

00:43:29 --> 00:44:12

The prophecies are made a public announcement to the Muslims. In fact, some scholars even say he made this announcement before we don't have a date when he made the announcement. He made an announcement in Makkah to the Muslims most likely in the house of outcome. And he said, Allah has shown me the land that you shall emigrate to. I saw it in a dream. Allah has shown me the land that you shall emigrate to. And it is a land of date palms between two volcanic plains benei lab butane and lava is a volcanic plain. And actually Medina it's very interesting that Medina is surrounded by if you ever had the opportunity to take a flight to Medina take one of the daytime and then look

00:44:12 --> 00:44:49

outside the window when you're close by to Medina and you will see clearly large places outside of Medina with volcanic rock around this big four category and this rock is very, you cannot walk on it. You cannot traverse it with with with horses. There must have been a volcano 1000s of years ago and therefore that molten lava you see it porous. I've seen this many times. The Rock is a very different type of rock. It's porous with holes in it very rough, very ragged, very difficult. And Medina is in between two volcanic plains and it has date pumps

00:44:50 --> 00:45:00

to volcanic plains and data so according to one version, the prophets are seldom announced it but he didn't know the city. He said I have been shown it and I think it is such and such but he didn't know

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

The city then a few days later, he said, Allah has told me it is yes rib. And one version. He said, I thought it might be haber. But it is in fact, you threw in another version. He said, I thought it might be he mentioned a landing in Yemen. Because there's only a few places in the Arabian Peninsula that has date pumps, in a large amount. high bar is one of them. Hybrid is well known for its dates as well. And this place in Yemen is also but both of those places don't have volcanic

00:45:27 --> 00:46:09

mountains around them. It's only Medina that has both of these signs. The sign is date palms and volcanic plains. So the President said I saw it. And then at a later date, he said, Allah has told me that it is yesterday. So he gave them permission to emigrate. So the Muslims began emigrating by ones and twos secretly, none of them did so in public except for one or two exceptions as we'll come to. And the reason of course for this is because the reason for this is, of course, that the Quraysh would not be willing to allow them to emigrate, the things are at their worst, remember the tension right now in MK against the Muslims. And so the people began emigrating in small secret groups. And

00:46:09 --> 00:46:51

it is said that the first person who emigrated to Medina was Abu Salah ibn Abdullah Asad Abu Salah, the husband of Ole Miss Anima or miss Anima is going to become one of the wives of the Prophet system later on. Of course at this time she is married to Abu Salah Abu Salah was not from the Quran or miss animals from the harsh I will send Amma had been one of the few. This was known at the time. It wasn't common, but it was there, that sometimes a man would leave his tribe and go live with the tribe of his wife. Right. And that also is referenced in the Hadith woman can a teacher to either do near you Cebu, our Marathi Indian cape for hedger to Isla hijo de la, the famous Hadith, right? That

00:46:51 --> 00:47:29

if a man makes hijra for the sake of a woman, then his hatred is for the sake of the woman. It's not for Allah. That's the reference here, that people did have this notion that sometimes the man would adopt the tribe of the wife. So Abu Salah was one of such Arab that he was an Arab. He was a free amount of noblemen, but he was not he and he had married almost Salama from the harsh so he had moved to America. When the persecution increased, he was not a blood quraishi so he was persecuted more. So he left with his wife or Mr. lamotta avicennia. Then when the rumors spread that the conversion to please remember the Satanic Verses stories that they returned back, and they decided

00:47:29 --> 00:47:39

to stay, rather than go back, they decided to stay right. So I will send them an omen Selma are, are of the few who are called those who made both ages.

00:47:41 --> 00:48:20

They made both because you see the bulk of those who emigrated to Abyssinia from Abyssinia, they went directly to Islam Medina, right. That's that's majority, very few of them. And Omar sedima is one of them. And I will say them as one of them. They did to his dress for the sake of Allah and they're called the people of the two ageless because they emigrated both to Abyssinia, then they came back to Makkah, and then they emigrated again to Medina. Right, so that's 200 this is Abu Salah, so the first person to emigrate, it is said was Abu Salah, and Abu Salah, gathered his belongings, took his stuff, he put his wife and he had one child at the time, put them on his

00:48:20 --> 00:48:55

Campbell, and he made his way out. And he was the first so he didn't do this secretly. He thought, This is my business, I can take whatever I want. Right? That that's why this was one of the reasons why people started migrating secretly because of the story. So I will send them I didn't do this secretly. He just you know, packed his bags, everybody knew he's about to leave the new spreads amongst the people. So when he leaves the garage, come and confront him with theirs with their weapons. And they said oh, Solomon What do you think you're going? He says I'm going to guess what businesses of yours I have a free man I'm allowed to go. So they said as for you we have no right

00:48:55 --> 00:49:05

okay, you're not we renounce your oroshi Linda, tell us you're not apology, take her passport, because basically, you know, retract your passport. As for your wife, she is ours.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:26

She was a hoarder, she and we will not let you take her or her son because he is our son. Now. This is horrible. Not that they have an interest in almost no, it's just pure love. You know? And so they forced him to leave his wife and child and they expelled him without anything.

00:49:27 --> 00:49:42

So he thought he's gonna go with the family and everything is taken from him including his wife and his his his son, and he has forced to basically flee to Medina on his own. When Abu Salim was tried found out that he had been treated this way.

00:49:44 --> 00:49:56

There Jamelia got the better of them as well. And they marched to the chorus and they said, As for the lady, she's yours, but this boy is ours.

00:49:58 --> 00:49:59

And they

00:50:00 --> 00:50:16

Took the boy and the kurush held on as well to the board this was we know very little details obviously it's being described in some graphic terms here, but they picked up the boy to take him and the orange held on and it became a tug of war with a two year old

00:50:18 --> 00:50:20

until his hand was dislocated

00:50:22 --> 00:50:51

and all of a sudden I cried out that let them take the boy because it's her son began to be killed now basically, I mean, you know, tug of war, this is all JD not that they care but it's again a matter of prestige. And you know, we call them in the nose you know, the, the issue of being arrogant This is my, how dare you do this to, to our, to our son, you know, this is our son. So, Abu Salah stripe took the baby olmesartan was left with the Porsche and Abu Salah goes to Medina.

00:50:52 --> 00:51:35

And Omar Selim is narrating the story of herself, she said for more than 16 months, every day, a year and a half. I would go to Alibaba, which is the farthest place outside of Makkah, that is still within view of the city, right? crying in the desert because that's where her child and her son and her husband have gone right crying every day, not able to do anything because apparently you can imagine she's a young mother, you know, she's lost her baby boy, she's lost her husband, and she cannot live and function normally every day I will be going crying to the desert until finally some of my cousin's had sympathy on me. And they came and they begged the elders. She was on the boom of

00:51:35 --> 00:52:12

zoom. They begged the elders to what do you have to do? She's just a lady she wants to go with her husband and child let her go. So after a year and a half, they let her go she went to the the the tribe of her husband and by this time as well tempers had calmed down so they gave back to her the boy and so she took the boy and she just walked into the desert, putting her trust in a lot that I need to get to Medina somehow. Right? How is she going to go to Medina? She has no she doesn't know anything. I mean, she but she what else is she going to do? But Allah azza wa jal save such people I mean when you have such to work on and Allah, Allah subhana wa tada saves such people. And so she

00:52:12 --> 00:52:49

says that by the time I got to 10, immunomodulation, the name that's the outside of Mecca where we go by the time I got to take him there, I met tala. tala responded and thought it was Marisa risk man event. and risk management is from the Qureshi is one of the young men of the kurush. And he's not a Muslim. At this time I met with mine in Metallica coming back from one of his expedition, maybe went hunting or something. And he's coming back. He sees me all alone at 10am, which is way beyond what you can see from the city. This is dangerous for a woman to be alone. You understand that? She's a young lady. She has her young son here, you know, wolves,

00:52:51 --> 00:53:10

prey animals of prey of obviously evil people. She's all alone. So so earthman says, What are you doing? So she says, I'm going to my husband, Abu Salim. So he says you're all alone. He says I have no one I have Eliza widget. So this man says will lie. This will not be I will take you.

00:53:11 --> 00:53:28

And so Earth man, Omar Salama says that I don't think there is any more noble gentlemen amongst all of the Arabs then. Earth man. I don't think there's any more noble gentleman than Earth man. He walked the entire way.

00:53:29 --> 00:54:11

And he led the camel with his hand. He's walking from Mecca to Medina. And he didn't say a word to me. But when it was time to stop, he would tell the camel to come down and he would go forward and her turn his back on me because she's a woman. She has to come out it might something might show her leg might show something turn his back on me. When I would get down. She would put me under the tree let me sleep and he would stick by the camel. And then in the morning I would get back on the camel. And we proceeded this way, all the way from Mecca to Medina until finally when I could see the the houses of yesterday basically, he said Your husband is over there. And he then lets me go on the

00:54:11 --> 00:54:40

camel. This is Earth monumental house. Right? Not even a Muslim. But his honor and he's a young man as well. This time his honor and his his his gentlemen if you like qualities right there shining How can I let this lady and her young child go? Well, I imagine I mean, would we have done even a fraction only from Mecca to Medina walking, walking? This is at least a two week journey. One way on the way back he doesn't even have a camel

00:54:41 --> 00:54:59

doesn't even have a camel. Right? This might have been part of who he is. It might have been part of her no doubt Eliza will reward him right no doubt. I mean, you cannot even he's a pagan by the way. Even he is a pagan. But still there's some type of karma some type of luck. Do you know who Earth might have been but how is it

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

Well, firstly he converted the very last batch before the conquest of Mecca. Allah gave him that honor. Along with Harley, they've been awarded an album with us there were three people who converted the very last batch of converts before the conquest, right? And that gave them an honor because Allah says in the Quran, not equal or those who converted before the conquest versus those who converted after right law, yes, they were in common and fell from a couple of federal cartel

00:55:26 --> 00:55:36

de Rajim they have a higher level. So the last batch was, was might have been Paula, and then in the conquest of Mecca, one maca is conquered.

00:55:38 --> 00:56:07

The Prophet system is handing out the prizes, if you like the big prizes of the cabin, what are the prizes, who will get to have what is called the CIP is if it means the right to give the water who will get the right to the keys of the cabinet who will get everything so I boss was given the supplier, a boss was given the right to feed the the the pilgrims is a very big privilege, right? He says all messenger of Allah give me the keys as well. I went both,

00:56:08 --> 00:56:32

to me the keys as well. Right. And at this Allah subhana wa Taala revealed that in the La Jolla motoko unto Abdul Amanda de la liga, Allah commands you to give the Amana to those who deserve it. So the Prophet system gave the key to it if needed, be thought of, and he said, Go give this to Earth man, they've been fun.

00:56:34 --> 00:56:38

And it shall be with him and amongst his descendants until the day of judgment.

00:56:39 --> 00:56:43

And anybody who tries to take it from him will be avoided.

00:56:44 --> 00:57:28

So it went and gave it to him. And by the way, with man said, I thought that you guys were getting into any Hashem because the news has spread that they wanted, right? And so Allah said, Allah revealed in the Quran this about you in the La Jolla, Morocco and Jordan amanatullah. Allah, Allah revealed in the Quran, basically, that we need to give the keys over to you the Prophet system, gave it to Ruth Madison. Paul, how can you believe for the last 14 and a half centuries it has been amongst his descendants, to this day. To this day, the keeper of the keys of the Kaaba is from the descendants of Earth mandip in part because this is something again and Allah will reward you know,

00:57:28 --> 00:58:05

you do something for an event, those who don't he wasn't even a Muslim at the time. But still there was a sense of honor and and who did he do this to someone who is going to become our mother. This is almost an AMA, right? There's not just any Sahabi someone is about to become our mother. He didn't know it. Nobody knew this at the time she's married to a Wizard of Oz cinema dies and in the process of marriage almost had him right should become our mother showing respect to her still as a pagan, yet, Allah azza wa jal will give that blessing to him. The keys of the cab to this day are in the hands of the descendants of Horace Mann, even fun. Also, there's many other stories as well,

00:58:05 --> 00:58:16

about this early emigration of the problems that people suffered of the famous stories is the story of sohei by Rumi, so hey, by Rumi, the only Sahaba who spoke fluent Latin, by the way,

00:58:18 --> 00:59:02

because the only Sahaba who spoke fluent not Tim, so hey, by the way, was not to Roman A lot of people think he was Oh, no, he was not. So hey, was from a northern Arabian tribe, Arab tribe. He was conquered in the days of jelenia and sold into slavery to the Romans. So he grew up in the land of the Romans, where we have no idea was it Rome itself? What do we don't know? But he grew up amongst the, the Romans and he spoke fluent Latin. And it is also said he had a ruddy complexion IE a whitish type of complexion. So this gave him the lockup. So hey, the Roman because you speak Roman, you look like a Roman, we might as well call you a Roman. And it is even said that he spoke

00:59:02 --> 00:59:40

Arabic with an accent, because he grew up in the land of the Romans as a child, right? So he's ethnically Arab, but his his culture, his civilization, what he grew up with was Roman. So he became a slave amongst the Romans. And because he was ethnically Arab, I guess one of his master sold him back to an Arab tribe, eventually, eventually, he works his way as an Arab slave. He works his way to the house of Abdullah had been Sudan, who was who has been mentioned in many Hadith and he was our issues distant relative, and he works his way to freedom. Clearly, he's an intelligent man. And even in the days of jelly, of course, in Islam, by the way, Islamic law guarantees if there are such

00:59:40 --> 01:00:00

a thing called slavery now there is none. But once there were slaves, Islamic law guarantees the slave the right to become free, if he wants is called macatawa. If the slave wants to become free, then you make an agreement with him and you give him the time to work and he will purchase his freedom. Even in the days of Jamelia. They had this so sohaib clearly is intelligent guys, a smart guy.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:39

He works his way to become free in the days of jelly. And he becomes a free man. He becomes a minor businessman in Makkah. And again, this clearly shows the impact if you like, even with Roman culture on him that he's not going to take this slavery thing, he becomes a free man. And he accepted Islam amongst the earliest batch. And his closest friend and the person who gave that to him. And they both converted the same day was a mod vinyasa, I might have been the acid of swaybar Rumi, we're always together. They were always the closest friends. And so they accepted Islam together. And they were well known throughout the Sierra for being together. So hey, decided to leave as well. No,

01:00:39 --> 01:01:16

remember, the processor is still in Medina, sorry, Mk. The processor is still in Mecca. These are the early batches of immigrants, right? So still, it's not clear what's going to happen. So hey, decides to leave as well. It looks like he tried to leave surreptitiously. But eventually his news spread. And do realize I mean, moko was a small town, everybody's watching everybody, you know, news spreads very quickly, very, very, very fast. If you're going to leave, you have to pack your stuff, you have to have a certain amount, a certain animal, you have to have a lot of baggage for the food, water, etc. It's not that easy to be done. So however, it was the new spread that sohaib is leaving.

01:01:17 --> 01:01:24

So a delegation from the corporation at a delegation a militia from the kurush, March outside of the city, and surrounded him.

01:01:25 --> 01:01:39

So he was armed. He was a single person by that he has nothing except himself in his belongings. So he was armed, he pulled out his bow and his arrow, and he said, Oh, people have arranged I have 40 bows in my quiver.

01:01:40 --> 01:01:45

And I swear by Allah that none of you will get to me until I've used all 40.

01:01:46 --> 01:02:18

And then when you get to me, here is my sword. And I swear by Allah, nobody will be able to get me until I get to him first. Now, the Quraysh didn't want to have to leave, but they love their life more than they loved. So I'm leaving, right? Life is precious. And so they were wondering what to do. There's this tension standoff. They're outnumbered. I mean, so he was outnumbered. But who's going to make the first move and face the wrath of suape? sohaib said, What if I were to tell you, where I hid all of my wealth?

01:02:20 --> 01:02:34

Because there's no bank accounts to transfer money to? Right? Physical, gold, physical money, and you have to hide it somewhere, go out in the desert and hide it under a tree, whatever. And then later on, you come and you discover it. What if I tell you where all of my wealth is?

01:02:36 --> 01:03:17

Will you let me go? They said, Okay, do do you tell give us all your wealth, and you walk away free. And so suhaib told them where he had put all of his wealth, and he has to tell the truth, because if he lies, he's one man, they can catch up to him later on. Right? Not just that he's the Muslims, I suppose. But he has to tell the truth. So he tells them all of his wealth where it is buried. And so he literally arrived in Medina, with just the clothes on his back after having won his freedom. After having become a mini businessman after having a good amount, a decent amount of wealth. He literally arrived in Medina to start completely from scratch. And as soon as the profitsystem saw

01:03:17 --> 01:03:57

him, he smiled and he said, Allah has revealed in the Quran, about you, your sohaib woman and nurse him and yeah, sure enough to hope to Mr. Lawton, that there are those who sell everything that they have. They sell themselves for the sake of Allah. And he says, Yeah, yeah, that was his Konya. Yeah. But yeah, but there'll be a drop in the jar. Your transaction has been successful. Your transaction has been six without telling him what happened. But this is the miracle without him telling you what happened, then nobody could have arrived before. So of course, Julian has told him what sohaib has done. And so the Profit System tells him your transaction has been successful, your transaction has

01:03:57 --> 01:04:00

been successful. One more story, and then inshallah we'll call it a

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

an evening for tonight, and that is the story of Bob and his immigration with two people over the age.

01:04:10 --> 01:04:27

The story of roamers migration we'll talk about in a while, but he mentioned his companions. When Omar decided to emigrate he chose as his companions to for the journey to other Sahaba I Yosh. And Abu Dhabi and his Sham enameled blouse was the brother of

01:04:29 --> 01:04:30


01:04:31 --> 01:05:00

sorry, a sham in an hour, sorry, a sham. There also is the brother of somebody else. So he chose us as companions, these two and the deal was on such and such a day we'll meet up at that valley outside of Mecca. And when dawn breaks, whoever's there, we'll go if you're not there, then we'll assume that you were stopped, right? Because it's again, difficult to be migrating at this time. So the deal was, we're gonna meet up at this particular place outside of Mecca on this person.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:18

ticular day if you're there when dawn breaks, we're going to be going together. If you're not, then we'll just we're gonna have to leave and whoever's there will go at the appointed time he Sham did not show up, which means that he was basically stopped and prevented. He Sham did not show up. And so I Yosh and Omar were the ones who migrated to Medina and they made it to Medina.

01:05:20 --> 01:05:21

By the time they got there,

01:05:22 --> 01:05:53

Abu Jamal and his brother were actually Ayesha's half brothers. So I asked Abu Jamal and the third person all shared a mother but different fathers. So Abu Jamal is the half brother of iosh. And Abuja has had a brother as well, who's also the half brother of if you understand, say, Mother, but different fathers, right. So Abu Jahan and his brother, this is still the processes in Makkah, remember, there's turbomeca, Abu Jihad and his brother traveled all the way to Medina. And they went to their half brother.

01:05:54 --> 01:06:23

And they said to Josh, oh, Yash, don't you know what you've done? Do you know the state of our mother after you left, she cannot eat, she cannot drink. She has made a promise to Allah, that she won't taste the shade. And she's in the sun since then. And she is in such a state that license full has made her hair completely full of lice, and she cannot enjoy any food, you know, she's on the verge of death, etc, etc. She's made a promise to a lot. She's gonna sit in the sun until she sees her son again.

01:06:24 --> 01:07:00

And they kept on going about stories and stories until I actually the heart melted. His mother, you know, and so he decided to go back with him. And so let me just take care of my mother, then I'll come. Or Omar said, Oh, my gosh, they're tricking you. They're tricking you. But this is his blood brothers here. I mean, you don't have brothers, right? They're tricking you. And he said, If she's hungry, she can eat food. If she has lice, you can shave her hair off, right? You don't have to go back and do that for her. So I should know. I'll be a good son. Let me go back to my mother. And I also have some money I left it now that I've everything is secure here. I can bring the money back

01:07:00 --> 01:07:38

with me. Omar said to him if it's money, Well, lucky, I'll give you all that you have. Don't go. No. Omar is not even his blood brother, by the way, but he's his Muslim brother. Right? If it's money, I'll give you all that you want. Don't go with them. I'm worried they're gonna trap you. And if it's your mother, then she'll deal with herself, you know? And they kept on insisting that No, no, come back. Your mother needs you this and that. And so I asked his heart became soft for his mother. So Omar pulled them aside to say, look, if you're going to go take my camel, because my camel is stronger and faster than theirs. And if you find any treachery right back immediately to Medina. So

01:07:38 --> 01:07:53

he gave him his own camel subpanel. I mean, this is amazing here that Omar is bending over backwards and his own blood brothers are going to do you understand this as a trap? Right? His own blood brothers are going to do this. But Omar feels more love for him than his blood brothers do.

01:07:54 --> 01:08:30

giving him money offering him all that you want. Just take it just don't go with these guys, please, giving him his own camel. Because it's faster than their camel. And then eventually as the road goes on, they start chit chatting. You know how it goes in the suffer? You open up and they're laughing and joking, which then says, Oh, looks like my camel is weary and tired. Why don't we just ride on yours because it is stronger. So let me ride on yours. And they will let the candle take a break. Right? And so I asked doesn't and realize that this is a trap. So he makes the camels sit down because he's on his own camel. Now, he makes the camels Sit down. As soon as you do this, they jump

01:08:30 --> 01:08:30

on him.

01:08:32 --> 01:08:56

And they tie him up. And they make him a prisoner. And they carry him back to Medina as a prisoner. And they marched him around Makkah saying this is how we treat our fools. This is the result. And this process was in Makkah at the time. By the way, remember, this is still he hasn't made the hedgerow, right. So they bring it back. And he discovers that his Sham, the one they were supposed to meet, is also being held prisoner.

01:08:57 --> 01:09:44

So he gets thrown into the dungeon with his sham. They set up a prison and muck for these two special guests for these two, and they throw him in with his sham. And the Prophet system eventually migrates we're going to talk about his teacher obviously, next lesson, migrates to Medina. And when he first migrated, his first draft was about a sham and Amber. And all of these people, he would make up for them after standing up from record. And he would say a lot, save a lot save Southern urbanization or law, save the Muslim outfeed or law, send your punishment on the array. So he's so much concerned for these prisoners and mcca. Right. And he kept on asking the Muslims who will

01:09:44 --> 01:09:59

volunteer to save iosh who will volunteer to say, no saving iosh means you're going to walk into the lion's den. And you're going to save them from clutch them from the middle of the kurush. Right. Nobody wanted to do that. Until finally, actually they've never leave

01:10:00 --> 01:10:02

Harley didn't know his older brother.

01:10:03 --> 01:10:10

And his story. I think I mentioned it but we'll mention later on anyway, on what he did that will lead. Finally when he kept on asking he said, I will do it.

01:10:11 --> 01:10:51

I'll do it. And so he traveled to Mecca entered it in the middle of the night. And Allah azza wa jal blessed him with stories long story, but blessed to to basically find out where this this dungeon was because it's not public knowledge. And in the middle of the night, he broke into the dungeon, and he cut the bonds of iosh. And he Sham and saved in return and the restroom, rescued them and brought them back to Medina. And again, that's all we know. But imagine, well, like these are the stories of Legends if you really think about, you know, walking into Mecca single handedly. I mean, that's all we know. That's the details of the story. But can you imagine being in the shoes of a

01:10:51 --> 01:11:24

lady who lead right can you imagine trying to figure out where this place is and then figuring out you know, you're, you know, the guard the arms, Allah knows what he had to do, we have no clue. But he then it is said he had to jump over the wall, he didn't enter from that door. He literally climbed into the roof and then made his way down. This is literally the story of legends like Hollywood movies couldn't get better than this, you know, this is the real stuff. This is the real stuff here that he's doing. And he saves the two prisoners of war and he brings them back and validated his brother and it's the same blood there that that bravery is there. And eventually they

01:11:24 --> 01:11:55

come back to Medina and the both of them become famous sahabas for a sham is very brave warrior and he actually dies fighting against the Romans the Battle of Yarmouk, he had a big victory, the Battle of yarmulke and sir He Sham, the brother of armor, and again these are Sahaba clearly Allah has written for them destiny Allah has written for them, either, and, inshallah in our next week, we will talk about the Prophet systems digital himself with Abu Bakar. And the stories and what happened and the lessons we derive from there. We have a few minutes for questions and then a short lunch

01:11:56 --> 01:11:58

break for Salah Miss Miller, yes.

01:12:02 --> 01:12:04

What are the powers?

01:12:14 --> 01:12:21

There's a board is the book of David w. dallisa. Therefore, the the Psalms of David are in the Old Testament.

01:12:22 --> 01:12:26

Therefore the who are the fathers of there's a board. There's not a separate religion.

01:12:27 --> 01:12:31

There is no separate group who follows only David and not Moses.

01:12:32 --> 01:12:37

The people who follow Moosa also follow doubt. They view it as a continuation, which it is.

01:12:39 --> 01:13:02

So that you who are the ones who primarily follow the Psalms, the Christians look at these books, and pick and choose what they want from them, because for them, the Old Testament abrogates, the New Testament, but as you know, the Christian Bible is composed of the Old Testament, the Old Testament has in it the Psalms of David, the Old Testament has depended to talk which are the five books of Moses, right? Genesis and Exodus and Leviticus and

01:13:03 --> 01:13:43

the others have forgot them the first five of the pentatonic. And then you have the Psalms as well, the Psalms of David in the Old Testament, that's the remnants of this award. And even in the Psalms of David, the most, the most poetic of the Old Testament is the Psalms, the Psalms, the most hymns, the most singing that is done. And we as Muslims believe that that would be his lamb. That was his book, that it was, yeah, God a wee bit Mara, who was played well, I don't know, how did that, oh, mountains and birds sing along with him. And we believe that the greatest voice ever given was the voice of God. So his book that was that was given to him was the book of devour the book of

01:13:43 --> 01:14:09

recitation. And if you read the Psalms of David, clearly, I mean, obviously, we believe there's been changes and whatnot, but the essence some of the passages are still they're very moving, and there's so many hymns and so many praises of God and the God of Israel and describing Allah subhanho wa Taala with the most beautiful ways. So we believe that there are elements of truth in the Psalms of David and that's what they are who then even then Assad, the Christians also believe in the Psalms of David, are the questions yes.

01:14:14 --> 01:14:19

shows the reversal of temporary immigration it was only that they were gonna come back and

01:14:22 --> 01:14:25

we are closer to the money immigration and

01:14:26 --> 01:14:27

again in America.

01:14:45 --> 01:14:52

If you say we're not planning to bring Sharia This is closer to this Indian than Medina. That's the key point.

01:14:53 --> 01:14:57

It was never supposed to be how do we know this when they immigrated there?

01:14:59 --> 01:15:00

How do we know this one?

01:15:00 --> 01:15:02

emigrate. Some people have surmised

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

it No, it's this is hindsight is 2020. Looking back, we can say Abyssinia was temporary, there is an interpretation of the Seattle and again, this is all open to interpretation that abbacy Nia was a backup plan. Yeah.

01:15:22 --> 01:15:38

Yes, there was always this plan B in case Medina fails. And that is why and this does make a lot of sense because as soon as the process of migrated to Medina, he didn't tell the people that I was going to come. In fact, it was only after basically

01:15:39 --> 01:15:45

the Battle of hyper roughly the seventh year of the Hydra. Right, Jaffa joined basically at the time of playbook.

01:15:47 --> 01:16:15

And the reason that hybrid is so significant is that for the first time, it can be said there is no dire threat to the survival of Medina, whether it takes place or takes place, take place. And they are over there. Right. And there's always an internal threat. high bar was what eliminated the final existential threat to Medina. So the question arises, we can now look back and say

01:16:17 --> 01:17:00

Abyssinia, was temporary, but at the time, perhaps they didn't think it would be temporary. Point number two, even if it was temporary for them, they stayed there 10 years, which is to say we cannot extend that for 50 years, 100 years. And we live in a land in a temporary method for a while. Point number three, even in this temporary status, it is not as if they did not participate in the political process. We mentioned that they resorted to the courts, they went to the palace, they argued for their rights, right, the rights to live as Muslims in this land, majority land. So that is being a part of the process. But they didn't intend to overthrow the status quo. Whereas in

01:17:00 --> 01:17:29

Medina, that was the intention. So one needs to be careful if one says that then you are basically going a different tangent in my humble opinion. And that is one that the islamophobes will jump on. If you make that me personally, I think it is very clear. It is unrealistic to think of this as Medina, we are in a land of obviously India. In other words, we are a minority, we're two 3%. And our goal is to preserve our rights to worship Allah. As the Muslims have ever seen. You had

01:17:31 --> 01:17:33

a lot widen, your question is good.

01:17:38 --> 01:17:40

You know, some?

01:17:41 --> 01:17:53

Oh, yes. There's clearly no doubt that the yahood were expecting one of their own to become a prophet. There's no question about this, right? Because remember,

01:17:54 --> 01:17:57

Sofia's father, yes, it had been a

01:17:59 --> 01:18:01

Sophia, the wife of the process from her father and her uncle.

01:18:04 --> 01:18:44

uploaded yesterday, the both of them when they met the process. For the first time. Sophia narrates that I was a young girl. You know, you can imagine six years old, five years old, and my father and my uncle was there, darling. They would always play with me. When I rushed back when I saw them, they didn't even give me the time of day. And they were drained out of energy. They were, you know, lethargic. They didn't they seem to be greatly stressed out. And I heard them speak to one another. And they ignored me because she was a little girl. And Sofia's father says, uh, who Sorry? Her uncle says, oh, who is that the one and her father says a will law It is him. It is him. So his uncle says

01:18:44 --> 01:18:49

what are you going to do? And the father says we will oppose him till he dies till we die. Right?

01:18:52 --> 01:19:06

And not that we don't know about that if they saw the seals salmaan was the main word with the seal. But the characteristics that had been predicted had been mentioned. So Allah subhanaw taala himself says for them humara fU kofoed will be when

01:19:08 --> 01:19:19

what they recognize came to them. Allah says yeah, the foreigner who come it for now California, Urbana home, right. They know him and recognize him as they recognize their own sons.

01:19:21 --> 01:19:57

So clearly, they and this is what they were saying that we're gonna be with Victor's over you, when the Prophet comes, we're going to massacre you they expected this. There's even a theory that that's why they were in yesterday, there's a theory that cannot be proven. There's a because the question to this day, by the way, nobody has a solid answer. What were these Yahoo doing in the middle of the Arabian desert? I mean, there's no solid answer. Where did they come from? Were they original yahood or were they od converts? This These are questions that nobody has any solid knowledge for because we don't have historical documents. All that we have is from the books of our Syrah. That's all that

01:19:57 --> 01:20:00

we have. We don't have their remnants. We don't have

01:20:00 --> 01:20:08

their histories. So one theory is that this was a group who went out in search for the prophets

01:20:09 --> 01:20:21

and the signs that they had indicated. date palms, desert, volcanic mounds, and that's why they settled in both yesterday and labor.

01:20:22 --> 01:20:27

Right That's one theory out there and a lot of Xhosa knows best. Okay, sisters, any questions or the sisters? Yes, go ahead.

01:20:37 --> 01:20:40

Keys to the cabinet are symbolic these days.

01:20:41 --> 01:20:57

And no doubt the political powers have the authority to demand the person to open the door or not. Right. But the one who keeps the key and the one who will go and open the door has always been from the descendants of Earth man.

01:20:59 --> 01:21:38

Right. So the descendants of Earth man to this day, to this day there this is called the sadhana. The sadhana means to take care of the Kaaba. Every time the Kava is washed, they are called every time the garbers elaphe has changed, they are called because they are technically still in charge of the sadhana. Right. So the sudden it means the maintenance of the cab, sort of my name is part of how God the maintenance of the Kaaba and his descendants had it. And they still have it to this day. So no doubt it is a symbolic office. But it is nonetheless. I mean, who wouldn't want that symbolism, right? To go to sleep with the keys of the garbage in your house? I mean, maybe even they

01:21:38 --> 01:22:11

I'm sure they're gonna keep it in their house. They probably have but I'm waving my point is technically they are in charge. And nobody opens the door other than that tribe is the tribe Now obviously, and obviously one of their members always gets chosen when every time they die, then another one is chosen. So it is a symbolic honor no doubt the political powers will tell them this is the day we're going to watch the cabin. I mean, I don't think they would have that power to do that. But once that day is decided who's going to go and who is going to be the one opening the door is gonna be or thiopental has descended. Okay, inshallah, the

01:22:15 --> 01:22:18

church of Nativity, right, it's still in their descendants. I wouldn't be surprised.

I wouldn't be surprised

In this video, details are disclosed on the early steps towards migration to Madinah and how the Ansar were a force to reckon with. The Ansar were developing their Iman and strength in Allah. They were the ones who said, “For how long will we let the Prophet ﷺ beg tribes for protection, why don’t we adopt him and take him on?” And then they were the ones who volunteer “why don’t we launch an offensive attack?” such was their keenness to protect the Prophet ﷺ.

The Prophet ﷺ had said after the conquest of Mecca “were it not for the Hijrah, I would of been a man of the Ansar, and if the Ansar went in one direction, and all of mankind went in another, I will follow the Ansar”.

After the treaty of Aqabah, the Prophet ﷺ made an announcement to the Muslims, and he said “Allah has shown me the land you shall immigrate to. It’s a land of date palms between two volcanic planes”. And indeed Madinah is in the middle of two volcanos on either side. The reason for this is that the Quraysh would not willingly let this happen.

It’s said the first person to immigrate was Abu Salama, the husband of Umme Salama. Suhayb ar Rumi, Umar RA’s two companions- Hisham ibn Al As, the brother of Amr ibn Al As and Ayyash ibn Abi Rabiah were also among the people who moved to Yathrib.

When the Prophet ﷺ migrated, he made dua for them and said, “Oh Allah save Ayaash, save Hisham, send your punishment on the Quraysh”. And he kept on asking the Muslims “who will volunteer to save Ayaash etc”. Saving them meant walking into Mecca itself which was full of Quraysh. However, finally Al Waleed ibn Waleed, Khalid’s older brother volunteered and said “I will do it”. And so he travelled to Mecca and Allah blessed him to find out where the dungeon was, and he was able to break into it, rescue both of them and bring Ayaash and Hisham back.
