Episode Notes

This lecture by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi commences with a detailed discussion about the establishment of the Islamic calendar. Which year would be the first year, which month would take precedence over other months in being the first month and many more such questions came to mind and were addressed .

How did the early immigrants perceive madina to be? Did it tally with their imagination of it? They did not like it because they missed their previous home a tad too much. What does the Prophet ﷺ do about this? He made a special dua for the muhajiroun that “O Allah, make Madinah beloved to us like we used to love Mecca, or even more. O Allah, bless us in our food measurements; oh Allah remove the bad weather and plagues (Madinah had more plagues than Mecca) and throw it out”. Needless to say, this dua was answered and to this date, we feel the peace and tranquility in this region like nowhere else.

We also are acquainted with the generosity and good nature of the Ansar , especially towards the Muhajirun. So much so that the Prophet ﷺ said, “If I could I would give up my lineage and be with you. Were it not for the Hijrah I would have been one of you. If all of mankind went in one direction and the Ansar went in another direction I would go with the Ansar”. The Prophet ﷺ was immensely pleased with them and showed his appreciation always.

The concept of Muakar is also explicitly elucidated and we get to know the nuances behind this aspect.

00:00:09--> 00:00:17

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali, he was a big marine about

00:00:18--> 00:00:28

we're still talking about the incidents that happened right after the emigration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And before we move on, there's an interesting anecdote or an interesting,

00:00:30--> 00:01:05

important milestone in our history that is not related directly to the incidence of the law. But it is very important for our history, and that is the establishment of the calendar based upon the digital. This establishment of the calendar, of course, didn't take place right now. It took place a decade and a half later, but because it deals with the digital, I thought I just mentioned it to three minutes and then move on because we're talking about the digital we talk about the importance of the hedgerow. now realize that the Arabs did not have a calendar that they would rely upon. The Romans had a calendar, the Persians had a calendar, the Arabs had no such calendar, a sign of

00:01:05--> 00:01:42

civilization is to have a calendar. And the Arabs did not reach those limits of civilization, as we had said many times before, they didn't have a script, they didn't have a civilization, they didn't have architecture, all of this. That's the whole miracle of the religion of Islam, that it came and it transformed this Bedouin backward uncultivated society to become the rulers of the entire world. And I have mentioned many times that Allah mentions in the Quran, and then they they couldn't get up and fee they could come, we have revealed a book in it will be your remembrance, your legacy, your legacy will be established via the book. So of the legacies that Islam came with was the

00:01:42--> 00:02:21

establishment of a calendar. So the Arabs as we said, they they had multiple problems. Number one, they didn't have a calendar. So every tribe would have their own calendar system, believe it or not, every tribe would have their own calendar system household. So the orange would have their own calendar based upon important events, somebody dies, they will say the death of so and so this is the year now, right? And every few years, something significant would happen. So they would say two years after the death of the chieftain, three years before the incident of the other fit, this is how they would have calendar years, any important incident becomes a milestone. And every few years,

00:02:21--> 00:02:53

some milestone happens. So then they calculate basically based upon this milestone, major incidents and events. Now this is of course, local, it's decentralized, which means every Kabila or every tribe has its own significant incident, because they're not all unified under all of Arabia. To compound matters, there was also a very confusing practice that they had which Allah mentions in the Quran in them and it was the other to go for this the concept of Nessie and see 11 inches into the Quran.

00:02:54--> 00:03:36

In the time of Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, Allah revealed down the Shetty that four months of the year will be sacred. This is what the Arabs took from Ibrahim alayhis salaam, four months of the year will be sacred. Allah says in the Quran, in narrate that the Shahada in the law his natural Shanthi Kitab biLlahi Yamanaka semi waterbom in herberton home, there's a verse in the Quran that tells us the surah Toba, that the number of months in a year in the eyes of Allah is 12. In the Shahada in the law, his natural Sharon, fee, kita Bella, this isn't the decree of Allah, the day he created the heavens and the earth of them for our sacred. So Allah decreed this the day he created the heavens

00:03:36--> 00:04:12

in the earth, that the calendar shall have 12 months. And that is why By the way, every significant calendar on the face of this world has had 12, because it's in there from not well fitrah is improper here. It's in the Shetty out of the earliest prophets, let's say, every calendar, where did the Romans get 12? Where did the Chinese get 12? Where did the the the the the fathers or the burgeons, get 12. All of this, it goes back to the original shediac that Allah revealed down 12 was there from the beginning. And also, by the way, seven days of the week is also in that charity. And therefore every calendar system, basically that is an acceptance as seven days of a week. This is

00:04:12--> 00:04:53

something that again, Allah xojo decreed. So the Arabs also had 12 months, and four of them were held on were sacred, but the powerful tribes, and especially the Quraysh was the most powerful. They would flaunt these four months, suppose they wanted to declare war, and it just so happened, that is the wrong month, right? Because the four sacred months you cannot declare war, you cannot engage in fighting. Suppose they wanted to do that. What would they do? They would say, you know, instead of Mohammed on right now with Safar. They just swap it around. Right? It's actually not the car that I was doing hedger, they'll just swap it around. Right. And because they had this cloud, the powerful

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

tribes could basically tell the people look, this is not the month we're gonna follow the sacred month.

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

We'll just swap it around. And if we want to attack we can attack you. And they would then announce this and the other tribes would pay heed to this. So the other tribes would therefore realize that okay, this is not a sacred month, maybe we shouldn't go do Hajj this year. So literally, they would swap months around at whim and our desire. And Allah says in the Quran in them in the sea Uzziah the tune filco for Allah calls it a type of gopher, which is ungratefulness. And a rejection of Alicia Dr. indeterminacy was the attitude we'll go for that this concept of Nessie, which is to swap the months around. This is a type of rejection of Allah azza wa jal. Now, imagine what's going to happen

00:05:38--> 00:06:17

after decades and centuries of swapping months around that the entire month are going to be jumbled up like a jigsaw puzzle. And nobody has any idea what month should it actually be, it would literally be swapping at will and desire. And so the months lost the significance of their of their order that they used to have, because this was going to happen if you keep on changing at will. So the year that the processes and performed had the head jetted without he announced to the people that the months of this year, meaning hedgetrimmer dodgier. Right, what's your agenda without which you're the hero,

00:06:19--> 00:06:31

the 10th of the hero, the 10th year of the hero, of course, it's not 10 hijra yet meaning the concept of 10 years after hero doesn't exist. But the months exist. So the Prophet says Adam said this year

00:06:32--> 00:06:35

the monks have fallen in order,

00:06:36--> 00:06:40

the way that they were when Allah created the heavens and the earth

00:06:41--> 00:07:23

rajas kiyomi hollowell have similar to a lot. There's a hadith in Bukhari that this year's 12 months are perfectly aligned. So the process of him said this, right. And He then said, From now on, no swapping costs and no more swapping. So from that time, up until our times, the months have been in the proper order. Because a lot of will that in that year, the months go in their proper order. And then the president said this was the correct order, no more switching around, right. So therefore from that year, those months have basically been repeating one after the other. Okay, so that's one problem taken care of, and that's the order of the months. The other problem is the year that the

00:07:23--> 00:07:34

process of them himself did not directly allude to, he didn't directly institute a calendar, what happened was one year, most likely, this is the 17th year of the history that we now call 17th year.

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

What happened was in the 17th, year, of the one or two things happened.

00:07:41--> 00:08:05

One thing that happened was that Roma hapa was presented with a case of two people fighting each other, and in a court of law, and the one of them said that he was supposed to pay me back money by Shai ban. And it's already Ramadan. He didn't give me my money back. And the other said, No, I meant chabanne of next year, not this year.

00:08:06--> 00:08:43

So Omar says, How are we going to decide this dispute? Because the contract says shabang. And each one has a valid point, right? So Allah knows, maybe both of them were honest. And this law knows best one of them when he said, pay me back by Shabbat. And he meant maybe in two, three months, and the other guy's thinking two, three months now, the next shot Ben, next year Shabbat. So Omar was presented with this, and this caused some problems like this is a valid problem. And then he got a letter instead of from Abu Salah Shadi, or one of his governors, who says basically a similar thing that Omar Yeah, I mean, meaning, sometimes you tell us to do something by a particular month, a

00:08:43--> 00:09:20

major project, let's say, build this dam, or do this or that. And you tell us to do it by a particular month, but we don't know. Do you mean the same year? Or the next year's month? Right? same, the same issue basically, we don't know. So find a way to tell us basically. And so Omar rhodiola, one called the gathering of the Sahaba, that we need to have a calendar. And this happened in the 17th year of the Hydra. So one or two suggested will follow the calendar of the Romans or the Persians. And of course, this was immediately rejected because the Muslims realized they have their own civilization. Now, you don't need to be following others when you are at your Pinnacle. It is

00:09:20--> 00:09:57

only a times of weakness where we follow everybody else and this is the reality of life. Once upon a time they didn't they felt that they have no need so much that no we will have our own calendar. So which year should we begin with? So Scott, the Sahaba differed, one of them said with the death of the Prophet system, but this was then say no, this is not appropriate and he said time you want to mark the calendar day, another said with the one person that is said said with the birth of the Prophet system, another said with the conquest of others, because that was the day that Allah gave victory over the the pagans the decisive victory. And then it said, the year of the hijra, shall be

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the first year of the calendar because

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

This was when the situation of the Muslims changed from Voltaire

00:10:06--> 00:10:44

from being humiliated to being honored. This was the one decisive thing in the whole siara that was the turning point of the basically the nuleaf the optimism begins with the hedgerow and so when he said this the Sahaba all agreed to this and Omar said this is the correct opinion I mean this is the right yesterday This is the the the wise opinion this is the good opinion and so they decided the first year of the Islamic calendar will be the year of the Hydra once again realize there's no zero here he there is no zero time his first year his job before this we call it before his role basically right so it's we call it let's say 12 before digital then

00:10:45--> 00:11:19

this year becomes the first year of the digital one Ah, now the second issue which month should be taken as the first month because when you have a calendar now for the first time you need to figure out which month of the should begin your first month so once again people differ Some said Ramadan because Ramadan is the most holy month right. Others said that hey jack has been hedges the month of Hajj right, others said Raja because Raja is also has this blessings there's two or three opinions until it was mainly been a fan said it shall be moharram Why? Why moharram

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

scholars have different because this is a bit difficult to try to read and why moharram two reasons have been given by our classical scholars.

00:11:31--> 00:11:46

The first of them is that it's linked to Ali's announcement of the digital being the first year and that is that the actual hijra which month did it occur and who remains who can remind me which month did the Prophet system emigrate

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

incorrect show one would you go show one from

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

show while his

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

show one is after Ramadan right?

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

Then hedge he always said Roberto will

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

suffer Why do you say suffer called

00:12:13--> 00:12:32

weeks days and when did they arrive in Medina? Around eighth or ninth of April below what exactly you see so the nutshell will suffer. Right? The S o Mashallah. He had the s right, Mashallah. The only problem is in Arabic, it's a Cian not an S.

00:12:34--> 00:13:19

This is the this is the American and you speaking Mashallah the S is the first letter of the month I had one letter right. Mashallah 100. So the month was suffer, the actual month of hydro was suffer. That's when the processor emigrated. So why not? You suffer? Well, one opinion says the announcement for the Hydra came in moharram. ie the battle acaba, when did it take place after hedge and hedges will hedge? Right? So when did the announcement come for the people to start doing hijra basically, in moharram? Right. So this is one opinion that that's why moharram was chosen, because the announcement for hedgerow was done. And so people began emigrating in the bulk of the Sahaba.

00:13:19--> 00:13:51

emigrated in Muharram. And then the Prophet system emigrated right at the end of suffering, right. So those seven, eight weeks, the Sahaba are migrating and all of them basically leave only the process of no book and an alien, a few people remain, that's at the end of suffered, then he migrate. So this is one opinion. And there is another opinion, which actually now this makes a lot of sense. Logically, we'd love to pounce on it. However, there are some reports that in which earthman expresses a reason and Allah knows best it could have been both. And his reason was that now in those days, any martial law, the Sahaba, they did hedge pretty much every year, pretty much

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

every year they did hedge and most of them and either either in MCC or Medina. So how do you like an annual event? And so, for them, returning back from hedge represents a new life

00:14:05--> 00:14:48

that represents a new turning over a better life, right? You live a life of sins, you now move on to a better life. Okay, so the coming back from hedge represents a fresh beginning. And when do you come back from hedge Well, at the end of the day, so what month begins the that new life Mohan right? And so this seems to be also a very relevant reason why they began the months with moharram. And later scholars. I didn't find this amongst the Sahaba I didn't find this amongst the people who did this. Ramadan and Adi and others did not. And from my understanding, say this, however, later scholars tried to read in a Quranic evidence for this being the first of the hijra, right, and this

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

is a bit of an imaginative stretch. Nonetheless, we don't lose anything by by saying perhaps this is also the case. And that is Surah Toba verse 108 to the Toba verse 180.

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

We already quoted the verse before, lemma student sila taqwa, Min awali yo Min hacohen Tahoma fee, right? The Masjid that was built in the first day. That is the masjid that you should be praying in. And so must jacoba was built basically in the first year of the hidrolik. So it's a little bit of a stretch, right? But nonetheless, so they're saying, Allah says the first day mean Oh, Leo. And therefore they're kind of reading this in and they say, so Allah is intending that that should be the first day of the Islamic calendar, or the first year of the Islamic calendar. And this is something some of our classical scholars said, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best about this

00:15:46--> 00:16:26

anyway. So the issue of the hijra. The point why I'm mentioning this now is to show you the Sahaba understood the significance of the hedgerow that all of the other opinions are being basically, you know, so so not really being taken seriously, when the hitter is suggested everybody agrees, and they said, this is the most logical place to where we should begin our Islamic calendar. Now, again, before we move on a little bit of a summary, now, the Madani period, of course, we know that the mother, the period is shorter than the McCain era, the McCain era lasted 13 years, the mother knee lasted 10 years, the mother in a period can be divided into three very clear eras, or categories,

00:16:26--> 00:17:11

the modern era can be split up into three. The first is the era of consolidation, the era of strengthening the era of internal dissent being eliminated. And there were internal dissents from both the hypocrites and the, the Yahoo. These are the two major points of weakness. And also, by the way, there are also pagans in the beginning, slowly but surely, the pagans are eliminated, the hypocrites are basically minimized, they are not eliminated, and then the who does well are expelled or they're also eliminated in the end. And so the Muslims were facing internal threats. And they were also facing external threats. And the external threats primarily, we're from the brush. So the

00:17:11--> 00:18:00

first era was the elimination of any serious threat, the elimination of any serious threat, and the Muslim oma or the Republic, if you like, can stand confidently independent of any serious problems. And this era is from the beginning of the Hydra up until basically the Battle of Azov is one of the tables really began to turn, the Battle of zap marks the beginning of complete change. That's the fifth year of the Hydra, right. So from the first to the fifth, internal and external opposition is either eliminated or minimized to the extent that the the existence of the Islamic State is no longer in threat. You see in the Battle of Brother What did the process of him say? He said to

00:18:00--> 00:18:12

Allah, speaking to Allah O Allah, Allah. In Toluca has in Sabah, if this group is destroyed, phenol, betta fish out of you will not be worshipped on earth ever again.

00:18:13--> 00:18:43

The existence of the oma is under threat right now. Right? If this group is destroyed, now, if you allow these people to win, then you will not be worshipped on Earth. Right? That is how serious of a threat the Muslims were in the Battle of was another serious threat, the Battle of hundreds, they were almost about to be eliminated. But of course, Allah protected them. And when he protected them, the destruction of the opponents was so total that the tide begins to change.

00:18:44--> 00:19:18

Right? It truly the battle that has that was we're gonna come to it, that is the beginning of the tide changing, and their confidence begins and therefore the next year, what are the process of them say, we are going to march to Mecca for oma, this is confidence coming now, right? That's the Treaty of Arabia. So this is the first era, and this is a lot of internal and external threats are eliminated or minimized. The second era, is the era of truce. And this lasted two and a half years from the Treaty of today, BIA, basically, up until the conquest of Mecca, the pre the

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

era of truce, and in this era, the prophet system, and the Muslims witnessed a peace along with the coexistence of non Muslims. Unlike the third urine, which there is no non Muslim, in Mecca, or in Arabia, right, in this timeframe, both Islam and the enemies of Islam are on the Arabian Peninsula but at peace with one another. And the Prophet system yet how can we know the Prophet system is sending out letters, emissaries and voice the Muslim oma expands fivefold in the era of peace much more than it expanded to the era of war. And we'll talk about that when we get there. Right and that is the sixth seventh and

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

Eight years of the hedgerow basically. And then the final era is the era of the complete establishment of, of the Republic of Islam or the earliest atomic Republic. And that is basically the post conquest of Makkah up until the death of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, in Roby, and all of the 11th year of the hedgehog, and that was when Allah revealed what are at NASA, the Luna feeding in LA he of wotja. That is the ultimate victory that the entire peninsula embraced Islam and mass, these are the three primary frames that we will divide the rest of our entire lectures in. I've already mentioned many times before the modern era, even though it was shorter

00:20:38--> 00:21:16

than the McKee era, the Mk II era we've already discussed 43 years of the digital, sorry, 53 years of the hydro, we have discussed 53 years of the Prophet's life, so sort of not hydro 53 years or the process of life. We are now done with that the amount of information we have for these last 10 years is three times the amount that we have for the first 53 years. So we're going to spend quite a lot of time just FYI, I have taught this era three different times actually four different times in four different places. I have never actually finished because every time I started I never lived in the city long enough. The brother here used to attend mine in Connecticut for a number of years and a

00:21:16--> 00:21:32

level that I moved here so let's make the ad and I'm able to finish this for the first time. I've never actually finished this era in these types of lectures because it's so long we move on. So inshallah let's see how many lessons we're going to do and a large surgeon knows the end of affairs inshallah.

00:21:33--> 00:22:16

inshallah, it will be a first I have not done this before inshallah. So let's move back now to the Sahaba in Medina, the Sahaba. in Medina, how did the early immigrants How did the Mahajan find the environment? How did they How did they like Medina? Well, the fact of the matter is, despite all of the praise that we've given, the early Maha Joon did not like Medina, not because of anything problematic with Medina, but because they missed home. Because there is truly no place like home will lie. This is so true. There is no place like home. It doesn't matter how fancy of a place you go to. It doesn't matter. You know how royal you treated at somebody else's abode, your house, the

00:22:16--> 00:22:59

comfort you feel in your house, I mean, all of you know, you go to the fanciest hotel, it's nice to look around. It's nice to see the room. But your lumpy bed with the with the with the the pillow that's already matched up and this, that comfort that you get there. You're not going to get it even in the fanciest hotel. This is the reality that we all know right? And this is also the environment as well, the city, the people, and so the Mahajan felt so homesick they fell sick literally they felt sick. Literally they felt sick and generic. She's a young girl now. missionaries and she has been married to the process and I'm that when Abu Bakar my father and Bilal emigrated to Medina,

00:22:59--> 00:23:40

when they immigrated to Medina, I went and visited them, because she was now with the process of him. I went and visited them and I said, Yeah, Bertie cave, what'd you do? How are you? Oh, my father and brother was with him as well. And Beloved, how are you? And they she said the both of them were basically moaning. And boubakeur was in a severe fever. And Abu Bakar was sweating and in a fever, and he said khulumani and Masak different fear, honey, he will mold to an M and shiraki. Natalie, he's thinking of death, basically, right? That we wake up amongst our family. But the fact of the matter is death is closer to us than our shoes or shoe laces. Not even our shoelace. But the

00:23:40--> 00:24:24

strap that the sandal has over your toe. Right? This is the Shamrock. And so he's saying, anyway, my point is he's so sick. He's thinking of death, basically. Right? And he's just emigrated to Medina, and he's thinking of death. And so he says, Bilal, how are you? And so Bilal also said some poetry Annihilator she already has a b 1011 b word in Well, how will he is 13 Well, God, Lou, how I wish, how I wish that I would spend the night in a valley full of 11 Jedi, which are the thorny plants outside of Mecca. He is in a plant of a land of dates a land of water, a land that generally speaking is considered more luscious than maca. But he's missing the thorns of Makkah. He's missing

00:24:24--> 00:24:32

the the dryness of Mecca, right? Because he's used to it, right. He's used to, he's used to that land of Makkah. And

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

Bilal said to Arusha, Allahu Milan shaper, Tipner br Allahu Milan, Amaya, Allah, Allah humble and he goes during Lana, Allah Nana on all of these people. Why? Because of her June, me and Dr. Dina, they kicked us out of our houses, right? He's fuming with anger. And this is bilad who didn't own much at all, but it's the place right? It's natural to love the place you grow up in. It's natural to think

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

feel a sense of solidarity, a sense of homesickness, basically, and this is a work in in Vietnam, they are both homesick one of them is severely sick. So he says, I went back to the process of that depressing seat basically right? She goes back and she informs him about what's going on. And so, the profitsystem made a special draft for all of the Mahajan which is the DA Allahumma. Habib Elena Medina, Taka, Bina Makita. Asha, do you have to make a special shout out to Allah Subhana Allah, what was the DA Allah Mohammed Elena Medina, Oh Allah make Medina beloved to us. Like we used to love Mecca, or even more than we used to love Mecca, or even more than we used to love Makkah Allah

00:25:46--> 00:26:24

bless us in our food measurements sign when would dinner meaning what is this mean? Of course in those days you would buy everything with a salt and image which means only the the scoop let's say right so everything that that scoop will scoop up Allah bless us meaning all of the food supplies of Medina right? Oh Allah take the bad weather and the black the bad diseases and plagues. Now Medina had more water and more lusciousness so there's more plagues, microbes, whatever you want to call it. The doctors will tell me more about how this happens but Medina has more plagues than maca. maca for them was healthier because it was drier because it was less water there. And so they're falling

00:26:24--> 00:27:06

sick. They're not used to the the fevers of Medina. So the process from said Oh Allah remove all of the plagues and fevers of Medina and throw it outside of Medina in the barren land of Georgia which is a barren land outside just let it go over there. Let us let us not suffer from it. And so slowly, slowly but surely, the love of Medina entered their hearts because the prophecies are made this draft. The love of Medina entered their hearts so much so that when the Prophet system would go away from Medina the Sahaba would count the days they're going to come back to Medina and when it is said and as a medic tells us in the editor Bahati when the Prophet system would see Medina in the

00:27:06--> 00:27:42

distance, he would cheer up and he would make his camera go faster that yes, it's in the distance. Let's get there faster. SubhanAllah he made this dua to Allah and one can say to this day, I mean I have lived in Medina, the love that we have for Medina is a very different love than Mecca. We love mucca mucca mucca but the love of Medina, the piece of Medina, the sukoon of Medina, Allah it is something very different and I firmly believe it is this part of the process and the process of is telling all the Muslims Oh Allah, make them love Medina make them love Medina especially the Sahaba but in all of the Muslims make the love Medina and it is so true brothers and sisters that even

00:27:42--> 00:28:13

those who have never visited Medina, they have an emptiness they want to visit those who have visited it. Their memories of Medina are very sweet and different. Not that a sufferer of America doesn't have his memories Makkah has its memories and Makkah has this is but the sweetness of Medina is different. And this is what the person saying have been Elena Medina kobina Makita, I shall do and so he made this special do out for Medina. And of course Allah answered that door and therefore the Sahaba began loving Medina even more than they used to love Mecca.

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

of the early things that the prophets Islam did.

00:28:18--> 00:28:24

So much so that according to one of the earliest scholars of Sierra he did this even before the masjid was built,

00:28:25--> 00:28:31

was he did the famous is called Aha. And more aha means making people he

00:28:33--> 00:29:05

means making people brothers, right, Elmo Aha, he made a mohawk a brotherly bond between them Oh Ha Joon and the unsought despite the fact that he had already encouraged the unslotted to be generous and the unsalted word generous. And Allah zildjian mentions the generosity of the unsought already mentioned this verse in the Quran sleutel Hesher verse eight and nine, through the actual verse eight and nine. It describes the generosity of the unsaved and Allah subhana wa tada mentions this emigration and Allah says

00:29:07--> 00:29:42

lympho Cora and Maha Genie, Alina also learned Origin The idea why do we have the hoonah fragomen Allah Who wouldn't want that for those poor people have the more hygiene because all of them are hydro report, none of them had the money that they had in Mecca. So Allah calls all of them more hygiene for product Look at this little fukada e l mohajir. In every Mahajan by virtue of his original became focus. So cause other than football, although saying they will have the reward and they will have a less pleasure. Then Allah says when the inevitable was done, now we get to the unsolved, the Mahajan will have the reward

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

later but what data will emerge from a problem and those who prepared the avocode a doubt notice a lot. What does it mean? It means home. Daddy is my home. A lot called Medina their home. This is an interesting

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Now to use that he didn't say Medina he didn't say the city's name even though the Quran mentions Medina right?

00:30:08--> 00:30:45

El Medina T. And the Quran mentions we're not calling it yesterday as well. Right? yesterday but mo Camila confer German African By the way, every time the word yesterday occurs in the Quran, it is at the tongues of them when Allah never calls Medina yesterday, right? A lot never calls Medina yesterday, yesterday because I think twice in the Quran both of the times they don't on the tongue of the hypocrites, right? They are the ones were calling Medina yesterday, which means we should not call it yesterday. Now in this verse, Allah uses a noun from Medina that he doesn't use anywhere else. And that is the house, he or the abode. So he is calling Medina, your house, we're living at

00:30:45--> 00:31:28

about a doubt, meaning this is where you're going to feel at home. This is where you're going to feel the most comfort and a law called the unsought, those who prepared the house, not their house. The house was the difference here. It is technically the house of the unsolved. And so if Allah had said those who had prepared their house, this would have been accurate, but a lot didn't. Because what did the unsolved do? They gave up half of their house to them or judo. So a law called the Medina v house of the onside and the Mahajan. Are you following this room by going a little bit too fast? I think, right. A doubt is a reference to both Mahajan. And the answer, that Allah is calling

00:31:28--> 00:32:12

it both of your houses even though technically it's the house of the unsung Allah saying the unsolved prepared the house for them. And they found no hesitancy to give everything and they preferred others over themselves. Well, you don't either and forcing him will kind of be him. kasasa even if they themselves were in poverty, they preferred others over themselves. And so they gave them will hide your own everything they needed from home to food to animals. It is even reported inside Bahati that when they will hide your own came. They came to the Profit System. The unsolved came to the process when they said O Messenger of a law. We shall give half of our land over to the

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

Mahajan.

00:32:14--> 00:32:38

Half of the land of the Medina give it over to the Mahajan. Can you imagine all of the date palms all of just half of us take it for free, not one thing in return, and the Profit System made to offer them but he refused to he refused to accept such a generous gift. He refused to accept such a generous gift. And he said they will take care of the manual labor.

00:32:39--> 00:33:18

And you will share in the produce IE let them do work for the dates and for the privilege. And so Pamela shows us the spirit of Islam, that the process of did not want these free handouts. He wanted the more hydrogen to work. And he also didn't want shape on to maybe bring something five generations or five decades later. Oh, we gave you all of this for free. You never know if these people of course they had pure hearts. How about their descendants? Right? Or how about them when I feel Hoon, who are forced to give maybe. So this is the long term thinking of the process of to cut off these free handouts, even though it's such a generous gift take after that the President said

00:33:18--> 00:34:02

no. They shall do work. They're going to do their manual labor, you get some time off. Now you can if you're going to let them do the work, then they can take a percentage for their manual labor, right? They'll take their wages, in dates and in food and you can take your wages or your percentage as well. And so the process of did not allow this to be done and instead he insisted that the Mahajan work for the unsolved to get their money. And also the processor insisted and encourage them to be generous to one another. You all know the famous first hadith of Medina. It is the first heavy that is narrated from Medina. And it is a hadith narrated by Abdullah Abdullah ibn Salaam. And he is

00:34:02--> 00:34:20

the Jewish rabbi who converted to Islam. And he was the greatest of the Jewish rabbis and one of the only ones to convert to Islam. And Abdullah Salam narrates that when the Prophet system entered Medina, the people rushed to take a look at him.

00:34:21--> 00:34:44

The people rushed to take a look at him, and I was the first who arrived. So this is like the first time that the process of this isn't over, of course, the first time that the process is coming to Medina. And he said, for that matter by Ian TBN it was who who, when his face became clear to us meaning when he was close up out of two and who they said he could,

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

displeases and Muslim abiomed he said as soon as I saw his face clearly, I knew that this face was not the face of a liar. Just by looking at his face. He said, I know that this face is not the face of a liar. Why?

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

Because Allah azza wa jal allows righteousness and piety to show in, in a way that will never understand. And a law also allows insincerity and evil to show in a way that we will never understand. So pure people can sense pure people. And this in Arabic is called philosophy. And the process from said philosophy is true. It for us at the moment if no philosopher will have the philosophy is true. So Abdullah bin Salam because he is a pure you who did that he was a genuine believer and he accepted Islam, he sensed this purity. So he said, I saw that his face was not that of a liar. And he said the first thing that I heard him say was, I'm sure Sam will alter mo Tom will

00:35:43--> 00:36:22

soon or ham was Sol Lubin lady one as soon as that Hello jen netherby salam. And the Hadith is narrated by Abdullah bin Salaam, and it's called Hadith Salaam, it is called Hadith to send them. A Bill Evans Salam narrates the hadith of peace, in which the prophets of Salaam says the first hadith of Medina of Shu Salaam, spread the greetings of Salaam everywhere, I'm sure setup will also feed the people. Anybody who needs food, give it to them, also mo Tom will suit or have been good to your relatives will suddenly be late lady, we're nastran em and pray at night when everybody is asleep, that the whole agenda be set up you will enter agenda with peace. And so the process of is

00:36:22--> 00:36:38

encouraging, being brotherly being kind being generous is encouraging these things from day one. But he went a step further than this. And that is He instituted the concept of Aha, which means every Mohajer was paired with an Ansari, and

00:36:39--> 00:37:25

in this stage, the pairing was so complete that they would be considered like brothers even in inheritance. This is an early stage that if one of them died, the other would inherit his money. This was of course later abrogated. But this was the extent of the orderliness that they had that they would even become brothers in inheritance. And it is mentioned that over 100 such pairs were done. Which basically means for every single, male Mahajan, there was a pair done, right? For every single male Mahajan. There was a pair done, at least we know for a fact 100 names we have and for sure we have some names that have been lost in history, more than 100 such pairs were done. And we

00:37:25--> 00:38:03

have some pairs that we know of Abu Bakar was with hydrogen Urban's aid, Abdullah was with Saudi Arabia, and whoever you find, by the way, so for example, so mad at first he was with Abu Dhabi, that every time you find a pairing, if you look at their biographies, you actually find a lot in common, you actually find a lot in common. So how did you even say it was one of the was one of the nobleman of the unsought and Abu Bakar is you know who he is. So the profitsystem paired them together, Saudi Arabia was a rich businessman, and Abdul Rahman now used to be rich in America. Right when he immigrated, he has nothing now. But businessmen, they know business together, right?

00:38:03--> 00:38:44

So the profit system knows exactly who he's pairing with who. And he chooses the right person to pair every single one that we find we find a good pair done. And every one of these names, every one of these names that have been paired together, we actually find them mentioned in the sealer many times together, which means that they took this pairing together very seriously, that they literally became like brothers to one another. For example, the famous incident that all of you know about the visited submanifolds, who's already visited about their dad's house, and this was before the hijab came down, and he saw his wife disheveled and not combing her hair. And this is before Jasmine also,

00:38:44--> 00:39:25

by the way, cinnamon is at this stage 90 years old anyway, so it's not any problem that he saw her with her hair uncovered unkempt and she's not dressed properly meaning any old tattered clothes and he reproached her is like how can you dress like this My enemy my brother should not see you like this meaning you should dress up a little bit for your husband so omit that says Your brother has no need of women. And there's no need for me to dress up by the as I said first this is before hijab secondly Sandman himself as it is said he died at the age of 120 alone knows best but basically he's a very very old man and so there's no problem in him we're approaching in this manner for both of

00:39:25--> 00:39:58

these reasons. And then the headache goes on when when he comes home over there that's fasting salmaan says you're going to break your fast eat with me when he tries to go to sleep with her that stands in the hundreds of monsters No, you're gonna go and lie down next to me You're not going to break 200 now you all know the story right? This is the famous story. These are the two have been paired together. Sandman and Buddha This is the process and paired them together. Same with a workout and hydrogen is a we have incidents together. Same with abdurraqib not openside them there'll be a point is the brother leanness wasn't just, it wasn't just superficial. We actually

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

genuinely find stories between

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

These two and that shows us that they hung around each other, that they had genuine feelings and concerns for one another. Of course, the most famous story that everybody is familiar with is the story of Abdullah mattyb. Now, and Saudi Arabia.

00:40:14--> 00:40:53

and Saudi Arabia, as we said, was a rich businessman. And Abdullah madam now when he came, and the process and paired them together, he brought up the rock man back to his house. And he said, I am the richest of the unsought in money. And I shall give you half of all of my money, take half of all of my money. And in some versions, he said, I have a two story house, one of one of the levels is yours. And I have two gardens, one of them is yours. He even said I have two wives, and choose one of them after her does done, you can marry her. He wanted to split everything down.

00:40:55--> 00:41:33

To give everything or half of everything to his new brother in Islam. And after Amanda without said the famous phrase that he said barakallahu Li, female. May Allah bless you even more in your money in your family. I don't want any of this. Just tell me where is the supermarket? Where is the school? Right? Where is the buying and selling place? So he was told to go to the place of the year who'd had a soup soup outside of Medina. And so he took some whatever he could carry on his back from the hegira. He bought and sold a little bit of that. And he came back with some butter and some wheat. He came back for the day. And he kept on when the next day he took that and he bought other

00:41:33--> 00:42:10

things. And so he bartered until finally, the Heidi says one day, the process of them saw him and he was dressed up, Mashallah. And he had some perfume on. So the President said, What's the matter? Or have you gotten married? he's joking with him. Have you gotten married? And he says, Yes, sir. So I got married. Right? So like, he's moving up in life. So the President said to him, and he said to a lady of the unsought so he said, What did you give her? He said, I gave her a date, wait a seed of the dates, weight and gold, ie any any the seed of a database how much you know less than an ounce or something any? Even these days an ounce of gold cost an arm and a leg these tastes right. But you

00:42:10--> 00:42:15

know, it's a small bit that he gave it just less than a gram sorry, less than a gram,

00:42:16--> 00:43:00

even these days, but it's by the way, you cannot even judge according to these days back then it was much less than this. We say. The point being a very trivial amount, not a few $100, just maybe $20 something like this, you said an insignificant amount I gave as much. So the process never said, Oh Lim whether it will be shot, do over the summer, even if it's with one sheep do a wedding invite the people to a wedding feast. So this shows us that the answer and the Mahajan, their level of a whole other brotherhood was really unmatched. Notice here the generosity of the unsavoury and the self honor of the muhajirs This is real a man that the one is offering and the and his Eman tells him to

00:43:00--> 00:43:33

offer and the others Eamon is saying Jazakallah Thanks, but no thanks. I'm gonna do what I need to write. This is the essence of him and neither one is freeloading off of the other. Neither one is the one is offering genuinely and the others is his honor his kurama says Zach Hello, thanks. But no thanks, I'm gonna try my best to do my own. And so every single muhajir found a person to take care of him. And the unsought in fact helped them or hide you don't so much that the Mahajan came to the profits of the LaGuardia who was seldom

00:43:34--> 00:44:20

worried about something that Mahajan came to the process and I'm worried about something. They said that oh messenger of Allah, we have never seen any group of people like these that we have come to. They share equally with us at times of difficulty, and are generous with us at times of ease. They have taken care of our needs, and allowed us to share with them in good, so much so that we are worried here rasulillah notice this is a complaint in the guise of a praise. Outwardly, it's praising, but inwardly they're scared. What are they scared of? We are worried you're a solo lot that they will take all of our attention away from us.

00:44:22--> 00:44:59

Notice the beauty of the complaint, right, that they've done so much, that all of those years in Mecca that we were persecuted, all of those years that we were tortured, all of the wealth and money we had to leave behind the hegira and the problems of the Hydra, all of this jasola We're worried that is all going to be handed to them, because they're so nice to us. voters will lay this is just an amazing complaint. It's not a complaint against the unsaved. Obviously, it's a troubled wordiness that they have about their own good deed. Are we still going to get the reward or not?

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

So the Prophet system said that, no, they will not get all of your word, as long as you praise them and make dua for them respond to their good with your own good,

00:45:13--> 00:45:31

they will not going to get your reward you have your word, they have their reward, and that is of course, our religion, every person gets rewarded according to what he has done. So, what the more hydrogen did cannot be just taken by the unsought and that is why the more hydrogen are at a higher level than the unsought even after all that the unsought did. And

00:45:33--> 00:46:06

we said already that the two would even inherit from one another until finally Allah subhana wa tada revealed suit and fall after the Battle of butter. And so after the Battle of butter, which is basically a year and a half, a year and a half to two years after this incident took place, a lot of xojo revealed suited and fun, and in it Allah subhana wa tada says that we're letting Umberto hijack do microphones, minimum, whoo, are hammy ba boom, oh, la dee da Vinci kitabi La, La La praises those who have emigrated and those who have

00:46:07--> 00:46:53

those who have abandoned everything for the sake of Allah. Then Allah says, but Boolean or ham families are closer in the eyes of Allah, then them so in this verse, the Sahaba understood that inheritance between this type of Maha this type of brother leanness had been abrogated, and inheritance was then instituted only for the family, only for the family. Now, an interesting point here is that this more aha or this brother leanness, it didn't just take place in early Medina. It continued to take place throughout the years in Medina, up until even after the conquest of Makkah, shows us an important point that many Muslims don't realize many Muslims. Then when they read the

00:46:53--> 00:47:30

books of the Sierra, it says this is when the more aha took place. No, this is not true. The more aha was begun in this era, and it continued up until the very end, even after the conquest of Mecca. How do we know by the names of the people mentioned who are paired together? So for example, Sandman and Farsi in Abu Dhabi de submodel. Farsi did not accept Islam for a few years, he didn't accept Islam right at the Hydra. It took him a few years to accept Islam. And then the more aha to place we also have for example, Jaffa party was made a brother of whitey Benjamin.

00:47:32--> 00:47:34

When did you ever come to Medina?

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

I already mentioned this, who can tell me

00:47:39--> 00:47:40

obviously after Hampshire, but when

00:47:42--> 00:48:00

the seventh year of the hedgerow, right, so in the seventh year of the digital Jaffer comes back, and still, the process of that makes more Aha. It is also mentioned, for example, that while we had been abused, soufiane was made a brother with head data tamie, and more how we accepted Islam after Fatimah.

00:48:02--> 00:48:48

So this shows us that the concept of pairing people together was not something that was unique only to the beginning of Islam. It lasted throughout the entire course of the madonie phase. And therefore from this, we extract that this is a neglected. So now, up until our times we should be doing this, especially when people convert to Islam. Especially when people convert to Islam, this is a necessary sooner we need to resurrect, because that's the whole point. I mean, what is the purpose of having a stranger comes to town. He doesn't know even how to get around, he doesn't know the ins and outs of the city. And a convert comes he doesn't even know the social life of a Muslim.

00:48:48--> 00:49:22

He doesn't even know how to pray and fast. He needs not just social company, he needs support, he needs emotional and physical support, he needs somebody just sit down and tell him what to do. And we're like this is something that we need to resurrect in our times that we need to pair together we should have families adopt, let's say, you know, meaning it's less this type of adoption, right? Which families or people just volunteer and say, Okay, this is going to be my if you're like, I'm gonna take this as my up here, my auntie write, the sister should adopt the sister Congress and vice versa, it should be done. Because it's something that the Prophet system continued to do throughout

00:49:22--> 00:50:00

his life. Up until the very end, even after Fatimah we chose it wasn't something that was temporary, and it is something that we should also think about as a community. It also shows the some of the benefits we get from this issue of of Maha, it really shows that for any society to grow to develop, there needs to be strong bonds cemented between them. And we believe that there are no bonds that are stronger than the bonds of religion. These are the strongest bonds because the people of a religion they share many things in common that really define a lot of things, most importantly, your ethics and your

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

values, most importantly, your outlook on life, right? That is shared by the people of one religion, the way you view the world is shaped by your religion. So we believe, therefore, that these bonds are something that should be strengthened and should be. In fact, the Quran tells us that this is the strongest bond in the world what we know now.

00:50:21--> 00:51:06

Right in number four, this is the strongest of all bonds. And when you look at this early Society of Muslims, no society in the history of mankind has been as selfless as generous to strangers, as this group of people. Think about it, right? Even blood brothers would not do for their blood brothers. What the unsalted for them? Why isn't this true? I mean, think about the stories that we just heard now, even blood brothers would not do this, that the unsolved, did it and a lot praise them from above the seven heavens by saying they did it genuinely from the heart. It's one thing to do it. And Allah says their hearts were pure when they did it. never in the history of humanity have we found

00:51:06--> 00:51:48

this type of example of selfishness of genuinely giving for the sake of the other and not for the sake of yourself. And it's impossible for any society to achieve such standards without having these bonds. And that's what the prophet system established as soon as he moved to Medina. also realize that one of the things we learned is that the true leader of the Prophet system in this case, cannot just give general advice and leave it at that. Rather the process isn't implemented this decision how so by choosing the two people one after the other, because he knew each one of them will have known better than anybody else. And so he knows who is the most qualified to be the brother of this

00:51:48--> 00:52:28

particular Mahajan. And therefore, the real leader is not just theory, he's also practice. The relator isn't just talk. He's also action. And the process of them literally sat down and said Malik says I forgot to mention this, that he did this pactra this mo Aha. In our house, what does it mean our house scholars say, probably announcement in his area of Medina, Medina, meaning in our area of Medina because he didn't have the masjid. And so honestly, Malik is saying he did this Maha in our area of Medina, which means he literally sat down and one after the other people are coming, and he's pairing people together. And this shows us that the processor was a very practical, pragmatic

00:52:28--> 00:52:56

visionary, not just somebody talking theoretically, with also shows us the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In gradually formulating the laws of the Shinya machete, as we all know, came down bit by bit didn't just come down all together. And this is one more example that in the beginning, when the mohandro don't have any family at all, the answer becomes literally family.

00:52:57--> 00:53:35

And there's only even going to be inheritance between the two. Then what happens is Allah azza wa jal makes it easier. And once more and more people convert and they'd have genuine family. The Mahajan don't get married and they have their own kids now, right slowly but surely they have family. Now Allah azza wa jal changes the laws of inheritance. And it is now what we know as the laws of inheritance. Therefore, for that generation, Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed that generation to experience the [???]tier in a gradual in a piecemeal manner. We all know the prohibition of wine didn't come down overnight, came down and for different segments for different bit by bit took a

00:53:35--> 00:53:44

while to get them to the prohibition. Question. If a convert comes and says, Why can't I use this four step program to give up alcohol?

00:53:46--> 00:53:51

Why don't you allow me a little bit at a time give me one year for each of these, like in those days? Right?

00:53:54--> 00:54:07

if somebody were to say this, why can't we do it? Or is it even allowed to do this? The response is by unanimous consensus of all the scholars of Islam, there is no difference of opinion that a new convert is not allowed the

00:54:08--> 00:54:12

privileges that those who have had Why? one simple reason,

00:54:13--> 00:54:26

the Sahaba were the first Society of Muslims, they have no role model, they have no support is going to take a while for them to get to the level of perfection.

00:54:27--> 00:54:32

When a convert converts to Islam, he has a society already up and running.

00:54:33--> 00:55:00

He has a community already exemplifying the Sharia and therefore, you cannot give him the lakh cities that the first generation had. Right? And therefore we will say to this person, thanks but no thanks. It's a nice question. You haven't Mashallah, you're going to become a fucky. It looks like for that question, you're really going deep into the shadow, you know, we're sort of we're going to start moving away, but you're not going to be given this concession. You are

00:55:00--> 00:55:37

quired you so much so that we know that the Convert technical issue, start praying immediately. Even if he doesn't know Fatiha, he will just say it in English or he will hold it in his hand, whatever he needs to do to get by, but he needs to start praying immediately, right? Even if he's forgiven for the details that he doesn't actually know. So hello building he can hold it or he can say it in English, you know, all praise be to God, whatever he needs to to get by until he memorizes. But technically, all of the laws of Islam Kona, of course, it's a different story that we as a community are wise in, you know, gradually telling him what to do. But technically, the Sharia is applicable

00:55:37--> 00:56:25

upon him instantaneously at his conversion, other wisdoms that other wisdoms that we benefit from over here. Of course, needless to say, we already said this last week, the status of the unsolved the status of this group of people whom Allah azza wa jal praises in the Quran, in multiple verses, and that is why loving the unsought is a sign of faith and Eman. Hadith in Sahih Bukhari Sahih Muslim, the Prophet says that I'm said that I will Imani onsolve the sign of Eman is to love the unsought What are you to the FARC bordering on SWAT and a sign of hypocrisy is to hate the unsolved Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim right. And, therefore, anybody who loves the unslotted This is a sign

00:56:25--> 00:56:42

of a man and anybody who hates the unsolved our Prophet system has said something else about them. And in fact, so much is the blessings of the unsolved. The Prophet system even said to them, that if I could I would give up my lineage and be a part of you.

00:56:43--> 00:57:25

When did he say this after the Potomac? And he said, lowland Hydra lagoon tomorrow on middle onsolve were it not for the hegira? I would have considered myself one of the answer. I can't change biologically that I'm karoshi. I cannot change that. I'm from Makkah. We're not for the fact that I come from Mecca. I would have considered myself one of the unsung heroes Silicon Valley. konatsu huadian was elocon unsalted huadian. Let's select to widen on salt. If all of mankind went in one direction, and the unsolved went in another direction, I would choose the direction of the onside. This is what the process of missing the amount of praise he gave to the unsought and these are in

00:57:25--> 00:57:47

our body Muslim textbooks not in some obscure these are like the standard books of our faith right. The amount of praise he gave to the unsought is indeed unprecedented. Even though them will hide you don't have a degree of of them Subhanallah right? Even though the Mahajan have a degree above them, and that is why whenever Allah praises the onslaught Subhanallah every time he praises the Mahajan before them

00:57:49--> 00:58:31

every time Allah says in the Quran, that was Sabu Kunal our Luna mineral mahadji Dena well onsala the first peoples to embrace Islam from the Mahajan and the unsought he begins with the Mahajan. Then the unsought locka tabouleh who Allenby was more hygena will unsought Allah has repented upon the Prophet, and the Mahajan and the unser, again, the Maha Jenna before then, so somehow, even in the ayah, that a lot praises the more head to the unsought and that is the the saying of Allah will Latina turbo data when a man this is the highest praise of the inside in the Quran. So with the hash of verse nine, right, those who prepared the house that's the phrase of the unsought, the verse

00:58:31--> 00:59:15

right before it mentions linfoot Cora is Mahajan, the verse right before it and so Allah azza wa jal always gave precedence to the Maha Joon over the unsought and if the Ansel had been praised in such a high manner. Where does that leave the Maha Joon and that is why when the Ansel were praised so highly, that is why the Sahaba the Maha Joon became so scared that they might take our rewards Yasuda is are they going to take our rewards? And the President said no, they will not take your rewards as long as you continue to praise them and make dua for them. So this is the issue of them. Aha Sharla we'll stop you open the floor for q&a and next Wednesday, inshallah, we will begin

00:59:15--> 00:59:25

talking about a very significant portion of the CLR a very important portion of this era. And that is the Constitution of Medina, which is a

00:59:26--> 00:59:59

a novel idea which was unprecedented in Arabia, Some even say unprecedented in the world, in its scope, in it's guaranteed for freedom of religion, and this is really absolutely true. The way that the Prophet system formulated the state the Madani state, that he allowed the hood he allowed the Muslims to do this, he allowed he mentioned the machine as well in this contract, the amount of freedom that was given and the type of Republic that the process of them brought forth in Medina. Some have even said it is completely unprecedented in India.

01:00:00--> 01:00:27

human history and we'll talk about the concept of this Constitution and the importance of the Constitution and also some of the controversies over this constitutional treaty of Medina. inshallah that will be next Wednesday. Also, before I forget also the announcement. I was told to make two announcements before I open the floor for q&a. The first announcement on Saturday evening at 7pm 7pm right over here at 7pm. We will be doing a

01:00:29--> 01:00:32

what is the title of it as a bonfire event

01:00:33--> 01:00:44

and it will be done here on our grounds with MSC halaal marshmallows insha Allah will be arranged on Thursday, and I have been asked to give a talk so I will be talking about

01:00:45--> 01:00:54

signs of the Day of Judgment, signs of the object we'll be talking about inshallah at 7pm on Saturday, also, Saturday, Saturday,

01:00:56--> 01:00:58

Saturday or Sunday. I'll tell you emails Saturday

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

and

01:01:01--> 01:01:51

Sunday. Okay. So on Sunday, all day long from 11am until 10pm all day long Sunday. We are having our second zabiha day because we made the mistake of having a night and Mashallah we had like 200 people in the restaurant. So 300 people, by the way, we forgot to announce but the manager of the Chinese restaurant profusely apologized. He said he was expecting 30 not 300. And so next time he will be prepared. He said next time you do it, I will have tripled the amount he told me this myself is your triple the amount of staff and, and cooks you apologize profusely. I guess it was our job problem as well that we didn't know what to expect. And so he thought 30 people will be coming so he didn't

01:01:51--> 01:02:30

have the quantity of chefs and people so those of you who went to you know, it was a long line but Mashallah The food was worth it. I would say hamdulillah So this time, the manager the restaurant manager has basically given us the entire day, so we can take our time whoever wants to go for lunch or wants to go for a late lunch, early dinner, late dinner the entire day the restaurant will be serving the behalf. And this is the Hacienda but not the Hacienda that I thought it was which is in downtown. This is the Hacienda on Forest Hill, Irene and Germantown. Sorry, lost in the Forest Hill and Poplar, Forest Hill, Irene in Poplar, the Mexican Lassie and the restaurant will be serving

01:02:30--> 01:02:35

xebia all day. So you don't even have to ask preserve your heritage we have to ask for.

01:02:36--> 01:02:47

Okay, so you have to tell your waiter you want the dessert. So the cooking is a bit separate than I thought it was all of it. Okay, so that's the second announcement with that we open the floor for question. Oh, third announcement yellow Bismillah.

01:02:53--> 01:02:57

Okay, so we take two three questions, and inshallah we'll do the questions.

01:02:58--> 01:02:58

You said that

01:03:00--> 01:03:05

should be a three instantiate, of wondering how the

01:03:06--> 01:03:07

best way to

01:03:08--> 01:03:08

implement.

01:03:10--> 01:03:15

The scholar said there was no need for them to do so. But we in our times are at a time of

01:03:16--> 01:03:33

there is no up and running society, we are more in need of more Aha, because the society around us is not the up and running Society of Medina. So and that we I don't know of any type of Maha that was done in time with the Sahaba Allahu item.

01:03:35--> 01:04:16

The second question is regarding the suggestion to Congress that they begin to pray in their native tongue. And I was wondering if you'd make that a general rule for people who don't speak Arabic? even maybe children, when they begin to pray? No, no, we don't we don't make this a general rule at all. None of the scholars ever made this a general rule. As for Congress banging their tongue This is something that classical books of folk have mentioned that what do you expect to somebody takes the Shahada right now, how do you expect him to pressure with us? And it's not even possible for him to read Fatiha. So what's your going to do? Well, either he doesn't pray, which doesn't make sense.

01:04:16--> 01:04:36

Or he prays and we just tell him say whatever you can, so much so that he did if he doesn't even know factor, he just says, Praise be to God, Praise be to God, that's fine. He'll be forgiven until he can learn Arabic. The same cannot be said of us who are Muslims or our children who are born into our houses, we teach them the fact behind Arabic We teach them the rituals in Arabic.

01:04:37--> 01:04:47

Our Salah must be performed in Arabic, the Koran and the account of Salah none of the scholars of Islam ever allowed them to be formed performed in any other language.

01:04:49--> 01:05:00

Draw may be done in any language. The drawing will be done any language questions with the sisters even in fact, even if we went over this long time with the sisters in their fifth class, yes, even if others

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

His squid.

01:05:12--> 01:05:14

So the sacred months are

01:05:16--> 01:05:20

the show while the recorder and don't hedger and Roger,

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

sorry.

01:05:23--> 01:05:39

little harder. Hey Jim moharram and Roger, the ricarda don't hate Jim Harbaugh and Roger. These are the sacred months. Roger is the only one that separate. Roger is the only one that is separate the other three are connected together. There's a watch via took place.

01:05:40--> 01:05:47

It is said the actual act took place before the hijra and then the beaner or the conservation took place after the hitron

01:05:48--> 01:05:50

Okay, brothers, yes.

01:06:03--> 01:06:14

Life will update but to be honest, the word Republic is vague, and it is. It is okay to call it a type of Federation or Republic and when we talk about the constitution next week.

01:06:16--> 01:06:39

When we talk about that, when we talk about when we talk about the Constitution of Medina next week, it is actually not incorrect to call it a type of Republic. These terms, of course, can be defined differently. And a Republic is a type of state that it could apply if you want to call it state even the word state is not mentioned these are all English terms. So there's an expression in Arabic.

01:06:40--> 01:06:48

There's there's an expression in Arabic which you should be familiar with language I had to finish the law. You know this phrase. Now Moshe had to finish the law.

01:06:51--> 01:06:55

But there is no is the law for Republic. That's the point. It's as we define it.

01:06:58--> 01:07:10

dolla dolla dolla had a limited curfew quotable Kadima had Tesla dollar. Of course, this is something which is modern, which, so actually, this is evidence against you. Second point.

01:07:19--> 01:07:20

I said two reasons of a

01:07:21--> 01:07:26

syndicate marry one of them, I said, Michelle, cannot yell at us for sin, right.

01:07:29--> 01:07:46

And the shaft in the shaft area, there is a hole in the shaft area, that there is a fork between the one who has shot or the one who has no shower. And this is a cold. But the more important one is that this was before the hijab, third point, this middle

01:07:47--> 01:07:48

is about

01:07:54--> 01:07:57

the Sharia, in general, it did not come down.

01:07:59--> 01:08:10

Gradually, that does not mean it's gradual in application, its gradual and legislation, which is God can do then can allow it for a period of time.

01:08:12--> 01:08:15

However, for the Muslims themselves, whether they're new conference,

01:08:19--> 01:08:23

applications application has no gradual it's not even in that those

01:08:25--> 01:08:30

Muslims that just just converted in that go back to the you know, the first.

01:08:35--> 01:08:40

So the application is absolutely lovely when it comes down the streets.

01:08:42--> 01:08:46

But the legislation which is not in our hands, and yes.

01:08:48--> 01:09:00

That is what they said that it came down over piecemeal. That's what I said. It didn't come down in bulk, it came down gradually bit by bit. So alcohol was not prohibited overnight, it was gradually prohibited. So

01:09:04--> 01:09:21

I mean, I think I think you're being a bit technical here, it wasn't prohibited overnight. In the beginning, a lot of xojo warned them against drinking, then a lot warn them against certain timings of drinking, and then a lot of what you warn them against drinking period. So I'm calling it gradually.

01:09:22--> 01:09:25

And I mean, again, I think you're being a little bit technical.

01:09:26--> 01:09:31

So this issue is not for that particular issue. Now we find most of

01:09:32--> 01:09:41

the one elections and getting into government in some countries. They are asking for some relief on some.

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

Some Muslims are now moving in Egypt, they say alcohol should be allowed. Okay, this is a deep issue raising kinda sorta, I think you're kind of sort of taking us all the way back to there. We're over here in Memphis, Tennessee. Let's deal with our local issues in sha Allah.

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

Zach colocasia

01:10:04--> 01:10:15

I didn't say this, but I think your audience is in Egypt. So you should, you should tell him that inshallah, final question before we give it over to our guests that are here. And the other question is yes, go ahead.

01:10:19--> 01:10:21

bashed everyone together very appropriately.

01:10:23--> 01:10:24

You didn't know that.

01:10:28--> 01:11:03

Either we can say that. This was from Eliza, which is why or we can say that he got the Matura or the the the feedback from the people. Again, as with most incidents of the Sierra, for every one thing reported, there are 20 things that are unreported. You know, and this is the reality of any life. How much do you know, as I mentioned, back in the first day of the car, I said, How much do you even know your father's life or your grandfather's life? Right? And he for one incident, even that incident, how much details Do you know? So if this is the case of people we have lived with? How about 14 centuries ago? These details or history books are silent about so we have some?

01:11:08--> 01:11:22

Yeah, but but all 50 of them. I mean, this is a good question that even I asked myself, by the way, like, so some of them of course, you would know, but all all of the 50 and it's allowed me and my wife, Emma Matura. So why don't you if you can announce
