Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi summarises the events that occurred during the Meccan period in this video.

He commences his talk by elucidating on the days of Jahiliyyah or Pre Islam and we understand the categories of people living in that time – ancient Arabs(extinct) and the remaining Arabs – Adnan and Qahtan.

3 great things happened during the reign of Abdul Muttalib – discovery of Zamzam, sacrifice of Abdullah and the Story of attack of Abraha on the Kaaba.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ had a lineage that was unparalleled and it was this lineage that protected him in Mecca. Biography of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is briefly touched base upon and topics pertaining to his birth, his occupation and also there is mention of Zaid ibn Harithah RA who had a son like relation with the Prophet ﷺ.

The next event that is discussed is the rebuilding of the Ka’bah. It took place when the Prophet ﷺ was around 35 years old. What were the events that transpired in the course of this magnanimous and monumental occurrence?

The beginning of the revelations began with that of Iqra – when the Prophet ﷺ was around 40 years. The assistance and guidance he received from his beloved wife Khadijah RA at the time is a topic for all wives to imbibe and emulate.

The first two converts in the household to Islam were – Khadija RA and Waraqah Ibn Nawfal RA. The one who did so outside the household is Abu Bakr As Siddiq RA.

The entire Dawah that was done by Prophet ﷺ can be summarised in 5 ways –

  • Private dawah – 2 to 3 years
  • Open dawah to people of Mecca – 7 years
  • Open dawah to all of Arab peninsula
  • Dawah along with physical confrontation or war  like Badr, Uhud and Ahzaab
  • Open to dawah to all without any war – which happened due to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah
  • Open dawah with defensive and offensive dawah .

The emigration to Abyssinia  and how this affected the pride of the Quraysh is next up for discussion. This magnanimous decision results in the conversion of Umar ibn al Khattab RA and Hamza ibn Muttalib RA to Islam.the death of Abu Talib RA during the boycott that took place in Mecca against the Prophet ﷺ and followed by the death of Khadija RA left our beloved Prophet ﷺ in a state of deep grief and agony. Isra wal Miraj was the personal miracle gifted to the Prophet ﷺ to alleviate the sorrow of Taif and the death of his beloved wife Khadija RA.

00:00:21--> 00:00:50

So as we had discussed before today inshallah will be a summary of the entire MCQ concealer. So we're going to begin from the beginning and then work our way to the hedgerow, so that we're catching up inshallah tada after this break is also a new year for our academic studies. As you know it's 2013. So we need to catch up. To summarize all that we have done before we move on. So let us begin from the very beginning. And the very beginning, we go back to the days of Jamelia, we go back to the days of pre Islam.

00:00:51--> 00:01:31

the Arabian Peninsula was occupied by a number of people. And we can divide them into three simple categories, three simple categories of those who lived in Arabia. The first are those who are the ancient Arabs, examples of them are add and remove the ancient Arabs, we really don't have much history about them, and they don't have any descendants. So these are the they're called an Alabama either, which is the extinct Arabs. At the time of the Prophet system. They were two other groups of Arabs. And these groups, both of them were called an audible back here, the remaining Arab so we have that either, which are the extinct Arabs and then about here, the remaining Arabs, the

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

remaining Arabs are either at the time of the process, some were of two camps who can remind me quickly.

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

I had none and pat on the head on and on. Now, both of these are donavon. They go back to

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

No, they go back to

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

go back to Edna. No.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52


00:01:53--> 00:01:56

no. Fun has nothing to do with the smile. No.

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

No, no. katan who did they go back to both of them?

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

We went over to some This is a quiz question for a year and a half ago, long time. Some of you don't have your notes from back then they go back to Sam.

00:02:12--> 00:02:19

They go back to Sam the son of Noah. And so they're both Semites. They're both Semites. Okay? And

00:02:20--> 00:03:14

katan are called allowable arriba. And these are, let's say the original Arabs at the time, pre Islam and Eid none are called an Arabic Messiah, the Arabs who came into Arabia Okay, so katan or the audible audible which means the Arabs who were living for hundreds of years before the coming of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam before the coming of Ibrahim before the coming of the the Arab lands were occupied by groups of Arabs, we call them basically descendants of Asan and Adnan who is Adnan Adnan is a descendant of his marine Adnan is a descendant of his married Okay, so the story goes when hajer was left in muck with is married a group of the Arab arriba ie the cotton is passed

00:03:14--> 00:03:14


00:03:15--> 00:03:43

and these were the tribe of quickly which tribe that is my lived with married into the tribe of Judah whom the tribe of Judah home, okay, so it's my he was raised in Makkah, he intermarried into the tribes of Judah home, and they had none and the catani tribe since that time have been intermixing. Even though of course, we can still distinguish in terms of male lineage, which is Eid 90 and witches catani. And

00:03:44--> 00:04:26

the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wasallam was preceded by a number of very interesting occurrences that took place of the most important of these occurrences, the tribe of Judah home, and it's mine, Alison, I'm married into them, the tribe of Judah whom became the controller's of the Kava, and they are basically descendants of Adnan even though they're also descendants of parkland right? Excuse me, descendants of Israel and so on. So for a while the tribe of Judah home rules over MCE, then a number of internal revolts take place. So we're talking about over 3000 years of history, a number of internal revolts take place, and the Jerusalemites basically become more and

00:04:26--> 00:05:00

more rebellious and evil. And therefore, one of the other tribes, the tribe of Hosea and the founder of this tribe is somebody vanilla. Hey, and he has mentioned in howdy Ahmed noodle Hey, Aloha, sorry. The tribe of Hosea then ejects Judah home gets rid of Judah home. And this is what killed him buried all the treasure. They buried all the treasure around the cabinet, right? So they get rid of the tribe of Judah home. And Amma who hate the tribal Hosea then takes over the Kaaba. So the Jew termites are expelled. The Hosea eyes are now in

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

Charge and Amitabh Nuno hi was their first chieftain. He was the one according to our Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, we introduced idolatry, the Judo mites no matter how bad they were, they were evil. It is said that they would

00:05:15--> 00:05:30

basically take advantage of the pilgrims and they were greedy, but they were not wishing they didn't do any work. So the people wanted to get rid of them. The Hosea I basically kicked them out, they became charged with the Kava, but the Hosea I did something much worse.

00:05:31--> 00:06:11

And they introduced idolatry for the first time. Now, we don't have exact dates, but roughly It is said and the draft calculations might show that around 200 of this Christian era, right? So basically, around 400 years before the coming of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for centuries before the coming of the process. And I'm, I'm ready to hire Jose. He was the chieftain of the tribe. When he kicked the Judo mites out. He went to Syria for a business transaction, and the people of Syria, were the Armada. They were big giants in the land, he said they had a flowering civilization. He was impressed with them, and they were idol worshipers. And so he took the God of herbal, which is an

00:06:11--> 00:06:46

ancient, they say that is an ancient Greek or Roman god as well, Allahu Allah, but they have this theory. That is one of those ancient gods he took the actual idol of Hubble they gifted him one of the real idols. So he took the idol of Hubble and he brought it in front of the cab. And this was the beginning of idolatry. Now because it's a new season, new era, new tribe has come in so the people rooting for change. And so the Hosea I tribe no no hi introduce many of the evil things and he also introduced some good things as well in terms of structure in terms of government and

00:06:47--> 00:07:21

the tribe and he was also the one who changed by the way the hedge he changed the tibia. He was the one who introduced many different pagan customs which the Koran references merge our London but a little aside but what I will say that to him all of these are pagan customs that I'm new to height, introduced our process of them said in a hadith in Sahih Muslim that I saw somebody blow hate dragging his intestines in the fire of hell dragging behind him. He was the first person to introduce idolatry into the how long he was the first person to change the religion of Ibrahim alayhis salaam

00:07:23--> 00:08:06

of the major occurrences so the tribal Hosea, the tribal Hosea are not the Quraysh they're still not the courage the courage is not yet in charge of still, what happens How did the courage get in charge of MK again so the courage have not been in charge of Makkah since the time of the pre Judo mites right? Meaning that Bunny is made. They have not been in charge of maca, but they have been living around Mecca. For all of this time. They have basically been in the vicinity. The Profit System is great, great, great, great grandfather, Jose Eben killer. He was the one who managed to basically re enter Mecca, not reconquer. Why because the story says that he married the chieftain.

00:08:07--> 00:08:48

He married the daughter of the chieftain of Hosea. So the chieftain of cozaar. He had a daughter, and Jose married that daughter. And when the chieftain died, Jose is the powerful son in law. Perhaps he didn't have sons we don't know. But basically he takes charge of the people of Makkah, there was a war as well between Rosa and Qureshi or Jose we can say and we'll say one over them that I am going to be a chieftain. And so from Casa even kidnap and roughly Kasabian calibers around 450 see around 450 See, so before the process and by 150 years, we'll say even keylab takes charge of the Kava and the orange remain there in charge until the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:08:48--> 00:09:14

wasallam so this is the beginning if you like Allah subhana wa tada is setting the stage for the coming of the Prophet sallallahu it he was saying, This is the process of his great great, great, great grandfather, right? Everybody should memorize the next step of the Prophet system. Every one of you should know his genealogy, at least until crusade. So let's do it all together. Muhammad ibn Abdullah bin Abdullah Abdulmutallab even

00:09:16--> 00:09:52

Hashem even up them enough even close I even kidnap even more. Okay, so once again this is you should all know this is basic genealogy, right basic genealogy. We're not even asking you to go back to Adnan or something but just basically, Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah Abu Talib, everybody should know this right? After my father's father is the passion Balu Hashem hashemites right, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Hashem. So Mohammed ibn Abdullah Abdullah Abu Talib, even Hashem, right. And then Hashem is the son of abdomen F and abdomen f is a son of this guy.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

Okay, so Jose is the one who reintroduces or rush into the harem and his

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

great grandson Hashem. So this is not the bundle Hashem, Hashem. Hashem is the one who then made Mecca, a political and an economic capital by doing what?

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

He thought it was safe.

00:10:14--> 00:10:21

He thought he was safe is Hashem, right? So the prophets are sometimes great grandfather, the process of his great grandfather,

00:10:22--> 00:11:04

in Hashem. So Hashem is the one who then makes Makkah, the economic capital. so brilliant idea and scheme. We talked about this way back in the day, that by having these two relative schita, it will save one to Yemen and the other two, Syria is basically linking Makkah to the international trade routes from Yemen, there's obviously an Africa, all of Africa, and all of India are linked through Yemen. And then from Syria, you have the entire Byzantine Empire, the Roman Empire, right. And so this is a beautiful, ingenious scheme, that now makes MCE a source of wealth, it makes MCE a source of dominion, a source of political and economic strength. And all of this Allah subhanaw taala is

00:11:04--> 00:11:39

laying the foundation for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to come. And before the coming of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in terms of external politics, we already said that there were two major powers, the Byzantine Empire, or to be more precise, the eastern Byzantine Empire. And this is basically the remnants of the Roman Empire, the Roman Empire split into two, you have the Western and the Eastern, this is the eastern Byzantine that were interested in the western is of course, Europe and Europe did not deal with the promises of them. That's not relevant to our Syrah. Europe only comes into the picture at the Crusades. That's the first encounter of Europe with Islam is the

00:11:39--> 00:12:17

crusades, that's gonna happen another 1000 years later, and the time of the process and up until the crusades, it was only Eastern Europe, which is the eastern Byzantine Empire. And then of course, on the other side, you have this the Persians, the sassanid Kingdom, and the other principalities, India and China did not play any role in the Sierra. Arabia, we said was perfect politically and geographically for many reasons. Arabia was perfect for many reasons. First and foremost, it was smack in the middle between the two superpowers. So geographically, if you're going to interact with both of them, you don't want to be on one side, you don't want to smack in the middle. So it was

00:12:17--> 00:12:57

perfect. In terms of history, Arabia does not have any colonialist history, it does not have any major negative wars with either of the two. So it is it has been neutral. There are some Arabs that have treaties with the Persians there are some Arabs have treaties with the with the Byzantines, so the Arabs as a whole have been neutral. Also, the Arabs have never been a unified force. So the first person to unify them will become a national force and international force and our processing was the first person to unify all of the Arabs before the coming of the process from the Arabs had never been united. So it is as if there is what's the good word here hidden talent or

00:12:59--> 00:13:38

latent if you like power, latent power. That power is there, but it hasn't been kindled yet. All of the Arabs are there but they haven't been united yet. If they are united, they can become a force. They have not been united because they're in paganism. They're in Jabalia, there is no unified government. And so Allah azza wa jal is willing for our process is to bring a new religion, a new system a new entire way of life, so that the arrows will now become a international power. Also religiously, the Arabs are neither Christians nor Zoroastrians, so the Arabs are now a third party as well. So economically and politically, they're neutral religious leader, also neutral, there's

00:13:38--> 00:14:17

absolutely perfect now, religiously, they are pagans, they will become Muslims. So a new religion will come and this will be the uniting force for them all. And the Arabs themselves had certain characteristics that made them better suited for this endeavor. of them is the harshness of their livelihood. Both the sassanids and the Byzantines are now spoiled. They're living in the height of luxury, and the Arabs have a very difficult existence and they are used to the arts of war. And our Prophet system needed. Such warriors such such people that could live difficult lives and march hundreds and 1000s of miles in the desert eat the conquest of Persia, how did it occur from Medina

00:14:17--> 00:14:30

they went all the way to what is now outside of Manhattan. How did they conquer all of this they had the skills Allah subhana wa tada had chosen them to do this. We also mentioned that the

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

the jaha, Arabs had divided themselves, even religiously once idolatry spent spread, then as is the case with idolatry. People became partisan to their own call gods who will and may not and a lot, and they say they say that the Quran mentions this the five gods of the time of Noah were resurrected. Literally those the most ancient gods of Schick were then resurrected by the Arabs and they are word and swap, and you'll

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

And your openness. These five gods were resurrected and they were given each one to one of the tribes. And they began fighting for wealth for power for religion for every single reason.

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

before the birth of the process, and by probably around 50 years,

00:15:16--> 00:15:23

or 60 years, the major occurrences that took place to lay the foundation for his coming took place in the reign of Abdul

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

Abdul muttalib What was his real name? Who can remind me

00:15:28--> 00:16:14

shava shava shava. Tell him, Abdulmutallab, Abdulmutallab was the one who was the final precursor to bring about the glory of the Quran. So we've already said the Quran is slowly getting back into the the the the realm of things, and Allah subhanaw taala is willing that the orange becomes that power that is going to be so three things happen in the reign of Abdulmutallab that cause the magic or the glory of the courage to return. The first which is the most important for survival, the rediscovery of Zamzam. And it is unimaginable for us how the courage would have lived for so many hundreds of years in that desert environment, struggling for water, until finally optimal plenty of Allah

00:16:14--> 00:17:01

subhanho wa Taala blessed him through the dreams to rediscover the well of Zamzam. And this brought about for the first time a continuous supply of water since the times of the tribe of Judah home. So for over 200 years, 250 years. They had eked out in existence from the wells from bringing in rainwater until finally that well is rediscovered. The second incident is the incident of the sacrificing of or the vow to sacrifice Abdullah and this was the precursor to singling out Abdullah to be such a great such a noble person that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose him and before him Allah chose to smile in the both of them are called those whom Allah azza wa jal saved from sacrifice,

00:17:01--> 00:17:45

right? The both of them Allah substituted animals and Rams to save them from sacrifice. And our Prophet Mohammed sysm is the son of the both of them Abdullah and is married, and the both of them were substituted and saved by a loss direct intervention. And the final story of Abdulmutallab is of course, Lila is of course, an interrogator Fira because he will feed the story of the the attack of abraha on the Kaaba and how Abdulmutallab managed to basically pray to Allah subhana wa tada it was as his hands, not that he did anything, but it was during his reign. And the miracle was clear for everybody. And all of this was to honor the coming of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:17:45--> 00:18:25

each one of his ancestors before him was such an honorable person was such a great and majestic person that when the process of him came, he has already established a stellar credential in a society where the pedigree or if you like the the the lineage is honored more than anything else. And our Prophet system has such a lineage that it was impossible for any other person to rival that because as we know, Abdullah only had the process of Abdullah Amina there were only married for literally to set for a week or so literally, that Abdullah Amina were only together for some say even three days, some say a week and then Abdullah went on a journey and he never came back and

00:18:25--> 00:19:08

Amina became pregnant from that short brief marriage. Our prophets of Salaam said Hadith is as a Muslim in Allah has Safa kena anatomy What is my Allah chose Kenan from all of the children that is Marian souci Nana is maybe six or seven generations down. So the process is saying ki Nana, Allah chose him from the children of his Marian was tough Operation minkee Nana, and from kena he chose Alright, so a few generations down there is borash who is courage, there's a lot of controversy. Some say he is feared, even harlot and some say he's other other names. But when when most common opinions that he is feared, he is fitted, but that is courage. And so he chose courage from the

00:19:08--> 00:19:55

children of Kenya. And what stuff I mean Quraysh Hashem from the Qureshi chose Hashem, while stephannie Min, Benny Hashem and from the children of Hashem he chose me. So the Prophet system is saying, out of my forefathers, each one of these forefathers is the most honorable is the most chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the point being here, as we said, that had the Prophet system not had this high level of lineage, he would not have managed to survive in the hostile climate of Mecca. It was his lineage that allow us to protect him. It was the fact that he was the grandson of optimal thought of the great grandson of Hashem, that he was direct descendant of all of these

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

people, that he is the most nobleman and to harm him would have brought that

00:20:00--> 00:20:26

The greatest humiliation on themselves because he is their price. He is their greatest person in the whole tribe. How could they possibly harm him? And this was the way their Jedi Mind worked and Allah azza wa jal used it against them for the advantage of Islam. It is also narrated that when Amina gave birth, the Prophet says Adam said that my mother saw a light proceeding from her that

00:20:28--> 00:21:11

basically shone upon the palaces in a sham the palaces in Syria. And there's a number of connotations here of them Syria was the bastion of civilization at that time, and it was the first of the greatest lands conquered by the Muslims. It is as if this child will now become the owner or the leader, or conquer the greatest civilization to make his civilization the greatest civilization. And that is exactly what happened. And in one authentic hadith in Sahih, Muslim, the prophet SAW Selim said another word to be Ibrahim, well, Boucher is 70 million. I am the Dawa of my father Ibrahim mother. I am the daughter of Ibrahim and I am the butcher or the glad tidings of

00:21:12--> 00:21:53

a very subnet volume. By the way, the word Injeel means glad tidings. The word ngl means glad to glad tidings from the Greek Evangelion, which is to give glad tidings. And therefore his book was called that which is giving glad tidings and our processes have said I am that glad tidings. I am the Bushra. I am the good news. Even in the Old Testament and the sorry, the New Testament still, Jesus Christ is quoted as saying that good news, I'm coming with the good news. This is the good news. We have it over here that the process of saying Anna Boucher, Larissa, I am the good news that Risa is promising. And our processing room was born, as we know in the year of the elephant. As for

00:21:53--> 00:22:32

the date of his birth, I quoted 13 opinions if you remember, and we said that Indeed Allah knows best. But if any date is the closest to the truth is probably the eighth of Roberto well, and I went over the various dates. At that point in time, the Profit System was raised by the blue side, even backer, and the blue side, even backer was one of the tribes that were Bedouin tribes that used to visit maca to take care of children to take care of babies. And the Arabs would do this, in particular, the collage would do this, so that they could the children could be raised in a healthier environment, away from the plagues and diseases of the city, to build their stamina to

00:22:32--> 00:23:08

fortify them. And to make them fluent in Arabic, because they considered the Arabs of the veterans to be the Arabic of the bedrooms to be the most fluent Arabic, and they wanted their child This was their education, if you like to be raised over there, and every few months, the child would come back, visit the parents for a few months and then go back. This is how they did it. And so it was at this point in time when the Prophet system was with Halima, that his incident of shock was soldered to place. And that is of course, the opening of the heart when he was four years old, and the washing of the heart with Zamzam. jabril coming and washing his art and taking out any satanic

00:23:08--> 00:23:51

influence that black dot was the influence of shape on it was thrown away when this happened. Halima became scared and worried. And she returned the boy to Amina, and I mean, it passes away. And I've done what 30 passes away. And our profit system is orphan three times over his father and then his mother and then his grandfather, Abdulmutallab. And all of this is done, so that no one can claim any favor upon the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, who will send them so that Allah azza wa jal can directly take charge of this orphan, so that this orphan can learn the harshness of life because he's going to face a lot more harshness. Now, orphans, they learn to be mature very fast, the most

00:23:51--> 00:24:29

mature child is an orphan child, because you have to stand on your own feet right there, or the one who's an orphan, he's not going to be spoiled, he's not going to be pampered, is going to live a rough existence. And he'll be very mature very fast, and our processes and needed to be the most mature of mankind. So he is thrice orphaned one after another, and the orphans as well. Along with being mature, they also understand the difficulties of life, they've gone through the most difficult life themselves. And this makes them soft hearted, not hard hearted, because they know what it means to be an orphan. So they make them the most gentle and all of these qualities our profit system had

00:24:29--> 00:24:33

to have. So he was tested in this manner from the very beginning.

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

In his early life, we don't know as much as I have said many times this era of the Sierra is the least documented because who was there to tell us what happened. These years of him growing up to teenage years, the young man who just we literally have two or three small incidents that we can roughly piece together of the most interesting of them is healthful food. And that is, of course, the treaty. That our Profit System

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

Along with the other senior members have the courage to stand up for truth, to speak out against oppression to help the weak against the strong to help those who have been wronged against the wrongdoers. Even if the wrongdoers are from kurush, and the ones who have been wronged or from low tribes, that's not gonna happen anymore. So the Profit System was proud to have participated in healthful food. And he was probably around 2022 years old at the time, and he was the youngest participant. And this shows us he has a bright future ahead. And he was proud to tell us

00:25:34--> 00:26:17

that he worked as a shepherd, the most menial of jobs. And he told us many, many years later, that I used to work as a shepherd for karate, karate, it is like rocks, coins, like coins that are made out of rocks, not even, not even coins that are made out of silver or something karate, it is what we will call pennies, like the cheapest currency, right? I used to work for karate, for the people of Mecca as a shepherd. And Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to cause him to go through this difficult time, for many reasons as well of them is that the shepherd learns to be patient, because you have to shepherd a flock of sheep, you're gonna have to shepherd the entire civilization of them, as the

00:26:17--> 00:26:51

shepherd learns that every sheep has a certain quality and characteristic, you need to deal with that sheep in that matter, in order to get it to do what you want. And similarly, the leader has to learn that every single person has qualities that you need to learn to deal with those qualities, if you want to be a true leader, the mark of a true leader is that he or she can deal with every single member of society in a manner that is conducive to that person, those who have a short fuse, those who don't know how to deal with every single segment, they can never be a leader, the leader understands this, and that is the stepping stone. The shepherd also learns how to do this. And so

00:26:51--> 00:27:33

this is the stepping stone to becoming a leader for for any group. And of course, it is through his job as a shepherd, that the wealthy lady Khadija who was just said the wealthiest and the most sought after lady but she had been married twice. And apparently she was not interested in any other man for the time being until she saw our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she saw his shyness, she saw his honesty, she saw his qualities. And therefore she was the one who instigated an indirect proposal that eventually ended up in a marriage. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with the greatest woman who who supported him who helped him who financially from being a shepherd now, he

00:27:33--> 00:28:11

became instantaneously a businessman, the highest upgrade possible at the time. The lowest job is a shepherd. And the most richest job to this day is always the most money is always in the business, right? And so our process of instantaneously upgraded from a shepherd all the way to being a businessman for Khadija, all of this because of his honesty, because of his sincerity, because of his good qualities and China's Allah subhana wa tada simply open up the doors with this one marriage to change his entire livelihood. Now, there was no worry about it anymore. And he was living a very difficult life in the house of Abu Talib. And the next day, he wakes up in his own house to house a

00:28:11--> 00:28:25

DJ in a in a wealthy house and he is now the one who is in charge of this money and for the rest of his meccan period. There is no problem if you like for finances, and it is at this time that zayde

00:28:26--> 00:29:06

is gifted to him the young boys aid and eventually they even had it at the time. Eventually he adopts aid probably when he's in his early 30s when the process of in his early 30s and Zaid is probably around a teenager at the time where the story of his father's aids father comes and they chooses the process over his father so to make his father happy, and to show him how much he loves the the Prophet system says this is now my son, Zaid bin Mohammed. And of course Allah azza wa jal later abrogated that in the fifth year of the hijra, so for over 20 years they did bin Mohammed was known as Ada bin Mohammed for over 20 years so much so they've been a bus said we never knew that

00:29:06--> 00:29:32

they had been Mohammed was a they've been had it until a lot revealed sort of that we never knew that the love the relationship, it was unknown, even as a young kid, so I didn't know that they had been had it. That was a they've been sorry, it was a demon. Mohammed was aided by inheritor until a load revealed sudut Azov and that's in the fifth year of the hedgerow. And the final incident that takes place before the beginning of the Why is the rebuilding of the cabinet.

00:29:33--> 00:29:53

the rebuilding of the cabinet, and the rebuilding of the cabinet took place when the Prophet system was around 35 years old was around 35 years old. And we already mentioned a number of interesting details about the building of the cabinet of them is that the emperor of Rome had sent a special ship full of

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

very expensive timber and teak wood that was meant for a very fast

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

Church and Abyssinia that he wanted to build the greatest church in India and Allah subhanho wa Taala will otherwise that the ship went into a storm and it shipped wrecked in Jeddah, the city of Jeddah. And the merchants had no money to get back to Rome. They were forced to sell all of this expensive timber and teak and all of this, basically straight from the palace of the Emperor. And it was meant for the greatest church in the Arabian Peninsula. But Allah subhanaw taala is demonstrating that no longer are we going to worship in these places, there's going to be a better house built and that is the house of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. And so this teak this expensive wood is

00:30:39--> 00:31:18

built is sorry purchase. Right at the time the cabinet had been demolished by a flood, the Quraysh gather their money, they go to Jeddah and they purchase this expensive wood and the wood is so beautiful quality that they have to build a cabinet out of it, but it's not enough wood for the cab. So what do they do? They shorten the cab for the first time in its history. But Allah has a wisdom here as well. The cowboy was a rectangle, they make it into somewhat of a square somewhat of a square. And to this day from that day, up until this day, the Gabba has remained a square and a portion of it has remained open so that all of us can walk right there and pray as if we are praying

00:31:18--> 00:32:01

inside the garden without having to worry about getting in and out. And so they rebuild the Kaaba and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam symbolically, he unifies all of them, he stops that civil war between the two sub tribes of the horsch when he is chosen to put the with his own hands to put the black stone. This is this is very symbolic because the black zone is from Jenna, because the black stone is the only piece that is from the original piece of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So our profit system, he's taking that original piece and he is putting it where it belongs. So it is as if there is a precursor, that the religion of Ibrahim will now also be put back in its right place just

00:32:01--> 00:32:13

like I am putting this in its right place. And also there is this precursor that just like he has unified all of the Porush and stopped the Civil War. He will also unify all of the Arabs for greater goods as well.

00:32:14--> 00:33:00

And in the 13th, year before the hedgerow, roughly 600 ce roughly 600 ce, roughly around 600 c 598 599 600 z. This is when the Y comes down. This is what is revealed when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam having all of his needs met now he doesn't need to go on business. He doesn't need anything. Now he is 40 years old, and he is feeling somewhat restless. He's feeling there's something missing in his life and he doesn't know what it is. So he's contemplating and worshiping Allah subhana wa tada ennovata Hara, and that is when the incident of Jubilee happens. Jubilee comes down and reveals a lot to him, as we know, and how deja comforts him and Khadija

00:33:02--> 00:33:46

tells him that what he has seen has to be the truth that Allah subhana wa Taala would never humiliate him. It has been said that Khadija believed in him even before he believed in himself, and there is an element of truth in that. And that also shows us the Eman of this lady Khadija. And it also shows us the importance of a loving wife the importance of a of a inspiring wife in the life of a man. Our Profit System was calmed down by Khadija zombie Looney the tharuni and she believed in him and affirmed him even before he himself knew what was happening. And after this, the why he opens up and Allah subhana wa tada reveals after Epcot was the next revelation who could remind me

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

Yeah, you held

00:33:51--> 00:34:09

Buddhist said yeah, even with destiny on the back of a cabin with the abacus. What was the factor? One item non destructive Robic capacity, we went over the Tafseer of all of these is in a hotel, and also very briefly in the zero but in a foot by one over all of this. And I remember I said, for those of you remember, if color is all about.

00:34:11--> 00:34:47

Color is all about one word, what knowledge in and what death is all about. Amen. Right? It is about in and with death. It is about am and 11am and put together is what makes Islam right. So in this Quran, basically he is told you have to learn you have to research you have to study and in the desert, he is told now act upon what you know. Now act upon what you know. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begins announcing privately to those whom he thinks will accept this new message. He begins preaching to various people.

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

And he does not know we mentioned before it is incorrect to say it was secret Tao it's not secret. Rather The better you turn to us is it's private data is private data private

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

With Tao, he goes to those whom he feels will accept the message. And the first converts were a DJ. And what have I been known for these were the first two converts. And after them, it needs to be positive. And they they've inherited these are members of the household, right? So they all convert within the household. And the first person outside the household to convert is aboubaker. The first basically a person who is given that our and our Profit System said, There is none amongst you, meaning amongst the adult males, there is none amongst you, except that when I first approached him, he was hesitant, except for Abu Bakr Siddiq. The only one who, without hesitation, immediately

00:35:44--> 00:36:28

accepted was Abu Bakar, acidic, and that was the first adult convert based on all of these conditions apply what aka technically that was not given to him rather, it was asked of him, and he accepted once again without being invited. You understand the point here, right? That the process was going to him asking what is happening and what aka accepts without having been invited formerly, right, Khadija as well as the same and Ali was not yet. So he is also a early convert. He is the first young convert, if you like, the first actual convert, and of the adults males really is Abu Bakar. In that sense. Other early converts are sad him who pause and respond even our fan and

00:36:28--> 00:37:03

Zubaydah, vanilla one and abdomen, deep mouth and our Abdullah bin Massoud, these were the early converts, every one of us should know the names of some or all of these early converts. And then after them, a group of Mohali, a group of non Arabs, typically slaves were the next batch of converts. And these are, of course, the famous beloved Europa hubub. Or what about acid and sumiya. And their son, Amar, and all of the other early Mohali and the early data was, has been divided into a number of stages.

00:37:06--> 00:37:51

In fact, the entire dialogue we can say, we can divide the entire 23 years into five stages of how to give our The first of these stages is private data, where we don't publicly open up we don't publicly go and preach, we simply go to those who we think will be interested. And this lasted probably two to three years private though, the second stage is open that what would the tank and this lasted 10 years, this lasted 10 years. And the last three of those 10 years, it was opened our to the whole Arabian peninsula. So we can say the first three years secret that we're not secret, sorry, private, the next seven years that were to the people of MCC, only

00:37:52--> 00:38:40

then the final three years that were to anybody who's willing to listen. So the process of began smallest and then worked his way outward, right. So he began with his own friends and family whom he thought would be interested, then he moved on to his family, which is maca. Then he moved on to all of Arabian peninsula that was in the final three years of Mecca, then he when he immigrated to Medina, the third stage of our can be that there's Dawa along with defensive war if you like, physical confrontation, but only against those who are who are harmful to you. And this is represented in the early years of Medina butter, and oh heard all of this, and even a heads up this

00:38:40--> 00:39:27

is against the Quran and the Muslims. That's it right there other people that encourage bring in and after as up, then you have another stage. And that is the treaty or sorry, the stage have opened our to all without any physical war, and this took place with the Treaty of are they be the Treaty of Arabia, all works come to an end, there's just going to be peace in the whole land. And this is another phase of the process of went through. And then the final phase, which is after the conquest of Makkah, and this lasted only a year and a half. And that is the open the hour along with defensive and offensive Jihad and our prophecies and passed away in this phase. And this shows us

00:39:27--> 00:39:58

that all five of these phases are possible. No one of them abrogates, the previous one rather, all five of these are possible. And the Muslim Omar or the Muslim leadership will choose which one of these phases that is the most politically permissible or conducive to the lens and the times in the place that we live in. So we said after three years, the profitsystem opened up his data. And he began publicly preaching to everybody in Mecca. And this is the famous verse in Surah sharara

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

One erotica carabin that Allah subhanaw taala revealed, warn your closest relatives. And this was when the process of him, invited his closest relatives to his house, his house, and he then publicly announced that he is a prophet. And we have already said that the people of Macau had already heard the whispers. But they've never been approached directly, so they cannot do anything. And when he tells them to their faces for the first time, this was when Abu Talib finally manages to express his irritation, and he stands up and he throws his hands in the air. And he says, you've basically wasted my time. That's why you invited me to tell us about this ludicrous thing tabin lack, right,

00:40:45--> 00:40:53

so any basically, may you be cursed. And so Allah subhanaw taala revealed at this step, Bharatiya abida have been Whatever.

00:40:56--> 00:41:05

I'm sorry, no, I'm Abu lahab. So I will have is the one who said the house of Abu Dhabi, sorry. So Abu lahab, of course, says this and then Abu

00:41:06--> 00:41:17

at the house of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala reveals Seurat to better be to have been whatever. And from that point onwards for the next five or six years, a number of

00:41:18--> 00:41:57

incidents happen or we can we can categorize all that happens into a number of categories in terms of tactics that the chorus used to oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The first of these tactics is to try to use political means or emotional means to stop him. And the political means you go to a party, I will partner with the chieftain, I will partner with his chieftain, I will thought of his his uncle. And so they put pressure on Abu Talib, first gentle pressure and then strict pressure, so much so that they threatened to boycott him. Initially, they didn't do this initially, but they threatened to boycott him. And this was one Bhupati approached the process of them once and

00:41:57--> 00:42:35

the process and refused, he approached him much more harshly and strictly that I need you to stop doing this. And that was one of the profitsystem said that if they were to do this, and that if they were to give me the power over the sun and the moon, then I would still not give up this message until I die in its cause. And that was when Abu Talib said when he saw that determination. He said that no matter what, you what no matter what they say to me after this, I will never approach you. No matter what they say to me after this, I will never approach you to stop you. And so I will never interfered he lived up to his word he never once interfered with the Tao of the Prophet sallallahu

00:42:35--> 00:43:14

alayhi wasallam when this didn't work, the next tactic they use was to ridicule the Prophet system and the believers open mockery sarcasm, they accused him of being a madman, they accused him of being a magician, they accused him of being possessed Sahar Majnoon all of this is accused, it is said that Abu lahab and Abu Jamal in particular, would follow the Prophet system wherever he went and make sure that anybody who spoke to his spoke to they would go to him and then warn them, this is our nephew, this is our such and such and he is possessed he is crazy. Do not listen to him. And this obviously it hurt the Profit System immensely. And there are many references to this in the

00:43:14--> 00:43:56

Quran. Another tactic that they used is to ask the profitsystem for miracles. And the Quran is full of at least a dozen such references at least a dozen verses. They asked you for this, they asked you for that. They asked you to send a river through Makkah, they asked you for gold, they asked you for a lot to come down. They asked you to see a book coming down just in front of their eyes. And Allah subhana wa tada did not respond to these messages to these threats. But he did give other miracles. He did give other miracles to them. And there were plenty of miracles even in the Macan phase. And the most grant of them is the splitting of the moon shot called Palmer, which is referenced in the

00:43:56--> 00:44:40

Koran, that he showed them the splitting of the moon. And they turned around and they said she has bewitched our eyes. When this also didn't work. Another tactic that they used was attempts of a middle ground, or even bribery, that why don't you worship your God for one day, and then allow us to worship ours for another day? Right, we'll try to have some compromise and I'll review certain capital or bribery. And so they tried to bribe him that we will make you our leader will make you our ruler, we'll give you as much money as you want will cause you to marry whomever you want. Basically, whatever a man can desire, you will get it but just stop giving this message and this as

00:44:40--> 00:44:54

well did not work. Another thing that they did was they attempted to trick him by asking him questions that they thought he could not answer. And they primarily did this by getting questions from the hood.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Because the concept of prophecy was not known to the Arabs.

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

They really did not have a concept of somebody communicating with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they knew that Jews believed in this. So they went to them a number of times. And so that gap was revealed because of this. And so that is what was revealed because of this. And so the questions were, and so the use of Israel because of this, right? All of these suitors came down because of these questions that the Jews said, Go and ask him about the Prophet Joseph. What does he know about Yusuf? And so Allah revealed in the Koran, all of the use of the Jews? The Jews said to them, ask him about the root, what is the root? Where's aluna? And the root, cause the root and the Rabi

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

right, the hood said, Ask him about dutiful,

00:45:41--> 00:46:21

ask him what sort of coordinate will coordinate What does he know to coordinate? And so again, Allah subhanaw taala, revealed about the coordinate, and they kept on asking, and whatever they asked Allah subhana wa Taala revealed to them, and this again shows us the knowledge that he had. And the greatest miracle in this was that the knowledge of these prophets was not known to the Arabs. Because the Arabs have no lineage with Joseph, the Arabs have no lineage with Moses, with coronate. What does this got to do with them? The Arabs had no knowledge of any of these prophets and their stories. And there are no books as we know, there are no libraries. And Makkah is not the center of

00:46:21--> 00:46:58

civilization. Yet when the Prophet system is asked about the story of Joseph, and the Quranic story is so similar to the the the narrative to this day in the Old Testament, that it is amazing, it is amazing how this person in the middle of nowhere without any access to any book can basically dictate the entire story. And Allah references in the Quran, that you did not know these stories before the Koran came down. And by the way, let me just tell you within academia, this is one of the biggest challenges that to this day, people try to decipher Where did the process of them get this knowledge from? Of course, we know it came from a lot. But believe me, this is something they have

00:46:59--> 00:47:43

so many attempts and so many theories and so many things to do. I don't want to go into my tangents right now. But one of the weirdest is that they when they realize how much information the Quran has, one predominant theory is that the Quran does not date to the time of the Prophet system. It dates to the time of the oma years and airbuses because it's too much information for somebody in Makkah to know, at the time of the process, you see this point, right? So they say it couldn't have been compiled in 600 ce II, in Makkah, it must have been compiled 700 C, in Baghdad or in Damascus. And this is a predominant theory, believe it or not, it's so ludicrous, but this is a theory. Why

00:47:43--> 00:48:06

because the Quran is full of too much information. It's not possible that an illiterate man from Makkah would have been able to come up with it, right? So again, My point being the mortar user is still to this day, they cannot explain that more Jesus. So they tried to trick him. And Allah subhana wa tada answered every single question with verses from the Quran. Another tactic they did is outright torture.

00:48:08--> 00:48:52

And because the Prophet system was who he was, the torture to him only came right at the very end, right at the very end the last year or two, that was when it became very difficult for him. Otherwise, before this time, most of the torture was directed towards the non Arabs, towards the Mali, those who couldn't have tribes and people became martyrs in early Islam, the first martyr was, so my year she was the first martyr. And then yes, sir, followed after that. And a number of early martyrs, beloved, was almost martyred. Many of the early melodic hubbub in an era was tortured with many so all of these stories that we know this took place again in the middle McCann phase, not the

00:48:52--> 00:49:17

early Mecca in the middle makan phase. And one of the final thing that things that they did is the boycott, and the boycott was enacted against the Banu Hashim, the Muslim of them and the capital of them, the entire tribe of Banu Hashim. Why, because because Abu Talib refused to cooperate, so they punished Abu Talib as well. And so the entire tribe of the Banu Hashim,

00:49:18--> 00:49:58

except for Abu lahab, because they knew Ebola was on their site, he was allowed to stay in Morocco, the entire tribe of Banu Hashim, and the Muslims were forced to basically leave Mecca and start living in the desert like their forefathers before had done without water without Zamzam without any access to food and anything. And that was the most difficult time of the Mexican stage that lasted, most likely around two years it lasted. And it was a very difficult stage, which sadly, we don't have much information about, as I said, but it was a very difficult time and in the lecture that I gave recently, which is online about multimillion ID we mentioned about multimorbidity being one of

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

the main people that

00:50:00--> 00:50:19

Help the Muslims in this regard. And he also was managed to break the the boycott as well. Probably before or immediately after the boycott again, one of the problems of the Sierra is dates, we don't have dates, especially in the Mexican phase. When did the boycott take place? Again, many theories but Around this time,

00:50:20--> 00:50:57

most likely it was it was before the boycott. The profitsystem had given permission for hegira immigration, because the the the torture had become so much that he allows them to immigrate and around 15 people emigrated. Amongst them was mainly been a fan and the daughter of the process of raffia Rosemont. Even mother owns a Beethoven, Mozart, who made Abu salah and his wife, Miss Ella and Miss Ella was too late to become the wife of the Prophet system. They all emigrate to Abyssinia to Habesha and within five months they return.

00:50:58--> 00:51:27

And they returned because as we said, of the incident that is called in western sources, the Satanic Verses in western sources is called the Satanic Verses in eastern sources is called the subtle Iranian, or the story of the pelicans. And I mentioned the three theories of the Satanic Verses, if you remember. And the strongest theory or the strongest opinion is that there is no such thing as the Satanic Verses that the Prophet system recited suta nejm

00:51:28--> 00:52:10

and when he reached the end, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the najem that first you do law he why would you do such that and worship Allah, and the sutra was so powerful that everybody, Muslim and caffeine, gin and ins all did such that around the cap, it was just so powerful. It was one of those occasions that the people of Mecca are in Thrall listening to the process and recite the Quran, they mesmerized and they're moved. And when he finishes the sutra and I recited the surah. And I asked you to listen to the recitation by famous or ROM who saw your machete or somebody, it's one of the most powerful monkey suitors and it is one of my favorite suitors. It's such a powerful suit in the

00:52:10--> 00:52:32

Koran, that you don't need any Satanic Verses to explain what happened. And there is no authentic narration of the Satanic Verses. Rather, the authentic narration simply says body simply says when he finished with it, and everybody frustrated, and it makes complete sense, when everybody frustrated. This story when it reached Abyssinia was everybody accepted Islam?

00:52:33--> 00:53:11

Right? So small story when it gets to diversity, it's now become a big story. And the people that have been senior were finding it difficult, obviously, in every sense, monetarily, language barrier, cultural barriers, a very different time and place to move city and country is very difficult. And honestly, in our times, I don't even think we can understand how difficult that must have been for them to do. So they're homesick there. Any type of story, they jump on it, they come all the way back, only to discover lo and behold, no situation is still the same. But Allah had something planned. And that was these people. tell the others that Okay, look, it's difficult culturally, but

00:53:11--> 00:53:12

politically, it's free.

00:53:13--> 00:53:53

And face between cultural difficulty and political difficulty. Everybody will choose cultural. It's easier to live a free life with cultural difficulty than to live a you know, culturally same life, but your life is under threat and pressure, right. So with this news, almost 100 people emigrated to every city. And this was a big blow to the morale demoralizing for the harsh Why? Because it's hurting their press teach their own people are leaving them. And by the way, 100 is a big number. For courageous a very big number. We're talking about small cities at the time, right? 100 probably represents maybe less than 10% of their population. This is a big percentage. It's not something as

00:53:53--> 00:54:19

if you know, 100 is a trivial amount for them. So a good percentage of them simply leave and go to Abyssinia. This is hurting their prestige. What do they do, they send to emissaries to bribe to negotiate, the two emissaries are rebuffed and returned with their gifts. And to make matters worse, to have their most elite members convert to the faith. Two of their most elite members convert to the faith. The first of them is Hamza.

00:54:22--> 00:54:37

And the second of them is Bob, they both convert within a few weeks from each other. And this is now the beginning of the tide shifting, that things are about to change. And it's very clear that the beginning of the tide is happening. And

00:54:39--> 00:54:46

the boycott is difficult to date. But around this time somewhere that boycott occurs, the boycott is one of the things that is very difficult didn't occur in the

00:54:48--> 00:55:00

fourth year of the Dow or the seventh year of the Dow or the ninth is very difficult to date when did the boycott occur? Somewhere around this time the boycott occurs and one of the most likely in my humble

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

opinion, the boycott is one of the last thing that occurs for one simple reason. It's such a drastic tactic that they couldn't have done this early on. To cut off one of your own is the worst thing that the jihadi Arabs can do. to boycott one of your own is one of the worst things you can do. So the very fact that they are now boycotting one of their own shows us that this is one of the last tactics that they did. So Allah knows best but the boycott probably took place, seventh eighth year of the Dow, ie four or five years before they hit you. Right. So past the midpoint and then 780 of the Dow with a boycott takes place, then the process of him comes back, and

00:55:40--> 00:56:24

within a few months of him coming back within a few months of him coming back to very severe tragedies take place. The first of them is the death of a butadiene. According to urbanists, half Abu Talib died the same month of the boycott when they returned, and it is not too far fetched to assume that the rigorous hardship of the boycott made him suffer his health deteriorate his health so bad that it basically was an immediate cause of his death. And that is not too far fetched to say. So the very month that they returned a blue body of dice, and this has been dated to be the show one of the 10th year of the hedgerow the show one of the synthetic the Dow excuse me tend to

00:56:24--> 00:56:37

have the Dow IE three bH three before hedger, right, you all understand 10th year of the Dow, and three years before the HR because before there's just 13 years, and quick, quick, quick quiz question.

00:56:39--> 00:56:51

How many uncle's have the profitsystem lived to see Islam? And how many of them accepted? And how many of them rejected? How many of you? How many uncle's did he have?

00:57:01--> 00:57:15

She had probably 12 uncles, probably 12 uncles maybe 11. Probably 11. He definitely had more than 10. This is a common misconception. Abdullah

00:57:16--> 00:57:22

was the 10th. But there was but there were. But Ibis was younger than Abdullah.

00:57:23--> 00:57:44

And thus, was the same age as the prophecy. Right? So a lot of people think that he only had 10. This is a mistake. Abdullah was the 10th meaning when the 10th was born, then Abdulmutallab did his vow. But he had more sons after. Right. So he had at least 12 uncles, how many of them

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

witnessed Islam?

00:57:49--> 00:57:51

witnessed Islam not converted?

00:57:53--> 00:57:54


00:57:58--> 00:57:59

all 12 of them.

00:58:02--> 00:58:04

So we have four, we have to

00:58:07--> 00:58:08

all 12

00:58:09--> 00:58:10

we're saying all 12.

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


00:58:15--> 00:58:24

So if we have only references to four, if there are more than four we don't know. And it is not.

00:58:26--> 00:58:48

I mean, most likely these were the only four because otherwise we would have had references to them. Right? So by the time the process is 40 years old, all of his uncle's have died except for four, which is not too far fetched because it can Abdulmutallab lived a long life to is an old man when he died. So when the process is 40 his sons most of them already died. This is not too far fetched. And these four are of course, who are they?

00:58:52--> 00:58:55

And Hamza and Ibis Jaffa

00:58:58--> 00:59:16

Jaffa and Abby body and by the way Bula hub his name was Abdullah Rosa and Abadi. His name was Abdullah enough, and it is perhaps just a coincidence, but both of those were named after idols and they did not accept Islam. Probably just a coincidence, and Hamza and

00:59:17--> 00:59:36

Ibis they are both names of lions, it is said and they were named. They're both named positive name and they both accepted Islam. By the way as for his aunt's, he had six on a mat six a mat and how many of them saw Islam?

00:59:38--> 00:59:39


00:59:42--> 00:59:43

how many of them saw Islam?

00:59:52--> 00:59:58

At least to at least two, but when it comes to the answer, there's a big controversy

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

How many saw Islam but for sure, at least two who's the Second Battle of

01:00:05--> 01:00:08

the dream? article?

01:00:09--> 01:00:10

The Dream

01:00:12--> 01:00:23

whether article embraced Islam or not, there's a controversy. Maybe she didn't because there's no reference to her. But of course, Sophia is the one who embraced Islam Sophia is the one who embraced Islam.

01:00:25--> 01:00:42

So we said that in chawan of the 10th year Abu Talib dies, and less than six weeks after the death of Abu Talib, this is followed by the death of a DJ. And it is said that Khadija died in normal Dawn of the 10th year social wall, and then Ramadan. And

01:00:44--> 01:01:27

this is why this year is called Ahmed, who's in the year of sorrow, because both of these were the two most closest people to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the one of them was his public supporter, and the other was his private supporter. And especially the death of Khadija affected him personally, the death of a robot it affected him politically, right. So in both cases, the loss of close loved ones and one after the other, they both died. And so much so that it is said that the Prophet system was not seen smiling for more than a year after the death of Khadija he was not seen smiling for the longest time. And it was then that the Sahaba basically forced him that he

01:01:27--> 01:01:36

has to get married, and that is when he married soda. That is when he married soda after the death of college about a year and a half, almost two married soda. And

01:01:37--> 01:02:31

it was after the death of Abu Talib, that Abu lahab was made the chieftain and ironically not a well known incident or story. Initially, Abu lahab changed track, we mentioned this, that initially when he became responsible for the brainwashing, he actually softened up. And he realized that, you know, what, for better or for worse, you know, this is this is my responsibility now, and I cannot cut off from my nephew. And so he in memory, not that he loved him, but it was basically a body of memory, right? That in memory of him. I'm going to continue on with all these policies. But there was an instigator. There was an instigator there. And the instigator basically, came to Abu lahab and

01:02:32--> 01:02:56

quizzed him that Do you know what your, what your nephew says about your own father? How can you support him when he has a position about your own father? That is not favorable. So Abu lahab went to the process and said, What do you say about optimal polyp? What do you say? And the profitsystem gave a generic response. He said, Who am I call me, he's with his people.

01:02:57--> 01:03:12

He didn't say anything that is too crude. But the point is given because our processing will not lie, is not going to lie. And he simply said he is with his people. And when Abu lahab heard this, he basically snapped.

01:03:13--> 01:03:54

And he said, You expect me to support you when this is what you say about my father, your own grandfather that know that this is not going to happen, basically. And He then returned to the same status that he had. So it's a gray area. Now what exactly is the status of the Prophet system in Mecca? Now that the chieftain has basically withdrawn the support, right? This is a gray area. And this is why the Profit System went to life. This was the catalyst that caused him to go to life that now that in Makkah, he doesn't really have support to live, where a Buddha has now basically withdrawn and is greater What does it mean withdrawn? What do you expect me to do now? Again, it's a

01:03:54--> 01:04:23

gray area. So he didn't want to test him. He just, there is no more Khadija there is no more any his uncle level. So then he goes to talk with Zaid, and what happens if What if happens, and many, many years later, when I asked him, What was the worst day of your life? Was it or heard? He said, No. The worst day of my life was five. This was the most difficult day of my life. And so what happens to him happens there, and he then returns from five,

01:04:24--> 01:05:00

bloodied and bruised, and he makes that beautiful day, in the middle of nowhere, he makes that draw, and right then in there, the miracles begin to come upon him right then and there, even though the people have rejected him, that iraq the Christian God accepts Islam right then and there, right. And when he stands in 200, that night, a group of jinn accept Islam. So it is as if Allah subhana wa tada is telling him that don't worry, if your local people have rejected you, the people from every portion of the land will accept you, even the jinn will accept you. Right and it

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

is no doubt it is meant for him to be consoled that person from the farthest regions of the world where at that time was literally the farthest Arab Land of the time, not even Arab at the time, one of the farthest lands and it accepts Islam, and then the jinn embraced Islam as well. And then outside of maca. Zaid says to the process of how are you going to re enter my canal? Basically, we don't have that visa to re enter MCC, what are we going to do? So the profitsystem says, a law will help us and allow we'll find a way out for his messenger. And he sends messages to a booster to Abu sufian. He says meshes so hated when he says meshes to various people, every one of them give some

01:05:42--> 01:05:49

excuse. I can't help you Sorry, not me. I'm not powerful this and that. Everyone gives an excuse. And then he sends it to

01:05:52--> 01:06:08

no time even ID motor living it. I gave a whole lecture about motoring. Online you should see recently I gave it I didn't give it here. I did not give it to you. But it's online. What's in it. One of the most fascinating figures in this era. And this is one of those things that he did probably the greatest

01:06:09--> 01:06:52

act that Muslim did is he single handedly and Muslim is a senior he's basically to the level of Abu Talib and Abu lahab. He knows he's the chieftain of the balloon ofin, which is one of the subtypes of Kurdish. And he sends his own sons outside of Makkah. And he they escort the Prophet system into Mecca. And the next middle of the night is literally outside, that he sleeps in his own house in the morning. He tells his sons to arm up, wear your armor, he has seven sons, all of them dress up armed, and they then walk in front of the cabinet they do toe off and everybody's astonished to see the process and back in Mecca. He left How can you be back here and then when they finish those off

01:06:52--> 01:07:06

multiroom says that oh people of Mecca I have adopted or I have given my a man to the prostitute, Mohammed Switzerland, right. And this is blatant slap on the face of a who

01:07:08--> 01:07:40

Abu Jamal Abu lahab Abdullah blatant like this is like, you know the English phrase dropping the gauntlet, like you are basically saying, and most hated all of this politics, even though he's a pagan, even though his idol worship is not a Muslim, but he hated all that he had seen from the beginning. He always was truthful to his qualities, to his ideals of keeping one tribe together. You know, these are the ideals of Jehovah he lived up to them. And

01:07:41--> 01:08:16

the prophets, I seldom repeat him the honor after the battle about that, as we mentioned, by praising him in a way that his legacy will live on. To this day, we praise Him and every one of us when we think of him, even how he died, how he died. But what he did, we have a fondness for that. And we consider him to have done a great benefit. And it is possible that a lot helps his religion through a person who is not a Muslim, there's a hadith like this, Allah helps this religion through a cafe. And Madame is one of those whom Eliza which I have the religion through. So Muslim then adopts if you like, or gives a man to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the process of

01:08:16--> 01:08:55

realized situation is very precarious, very dangerous, that I'm, I'm amongst my own people, but I don't have their protection. And during this time, during this time, he has already began reaching out to other tribes, he has approached the tribes that he thinks will convert to Islam and help him the tribe of kin, the tribe have been where Abdullah have nicob, the tribe of Berto hanifa, the tribal barometer of Nassau, the tribe of shavonda, decidable, all of these major tribes, and these were the tribes that if there was a rival to the coalition would be these tribes and our process and constitute on the big names, because he wanted some big help. But he gave out to everybody equally.

01:08:56--> 01:09:34

And Allah will that the help would not come from the big guys. It would come from a small town that he was very familiar with, because his great grandfather was living there. And he had relatives from his great grandfather's side because his great grandfather's mother was from that trip. And he had in fact visited it as a child. And his mother had died on the way back so Allah had willed that there is a blood relationship with yesterday as well. All of this is built from the history and Eliza had willed this right, that there is it's not as if this is a stranger, when they come to him and they adopt him and they bring him they are bringing a relative of theirs. Remember this point as

01:09:34--> 01:09:36

well, when the unsought when the

01:09:37--> 01:09:59

you know, people of yesterday were Medina, when they took him in, there is blood relationship as well from his great grandmother who was from them. Right. And so the tribe of the has Raj from the yesterday, they come to Makkah, and this is probably the 10th year of the Dharma, probably the 10th year of the Dharma. They come to they come to Mecca.

01:10:00--> 01:10:39

The profitsystem gives them that what they think about it, they say they'll think about it, there were six of them, and they go back and some of them they convert to Islam. So the next year they come back 12. And the Prophet system officially accepts their Islam. This is called the first treaty of Aqaba, the year before this is basically the precursor that that was being given. So the first year is basically that well, this is the 10th year then in the 11th year they come and there are there are 12 people. And this is the first treaty of acaba. And then he sends with them Mousavi videomate Mossad, they've been omate. And Allah subhana wa Taala blesses Muslims that were to such

01:10:39--> 01:10:53

an extent that in every single tribe of the people of yesterday, there are converts. There's not a single tribe, except that people have converted, and especially some of the senior up and coming leaders. Of course, we are the whole

01:10:54--> 01:11:01

circumstance of yesterday, Allah had prepared it through that Civil War, through the Wars of who can remember the Wars of

01:11:02--> 01:11:04

what are they called the Wars of

01:11:08--> 01:11:50

the worst of life, that Oh, son husband had a civil war that lasted more than 100 years, but especially the previous five years, 100 years of tension. And literally the it began because the camel grazed into somebody else's land, like how it goes, you know, and this led to one blood than another blood than this and that so 100 years of tension, the last five of which was the most severe. And in this, all of the senior leadership had been killed off, except for two or three most prominent is Abdullah no braveness. All right, this the only people in their 60s, all of the those who are in the senior management positions basically kicked out killed. So it's only the youngsters

01:11:50--> 01:12:35

left fresh, young minds, sick of the old ways wanting something new. Again, all of this is prepared as our issue says that Allah subhanho wa Taala gifted the words of black to the Prophet system before and this is happening, while the process of giving Dawa, it's not relevant to him, but a lot is the widget is relevant to his plan, right. And so the people of Medina now they are eager for something new. And the Dow will have must have spreads amongst them like like wildfire, and probably more than 150 or 200 have converted 70 of them come to the profitsystem in the final few months before the hedgerow. And they then give him the second beta, which is not just a beta of theology.

01:12:36--> 01:12:54

It's not just a beta of Eman. It is a beta of politics. That's the difference between the first and the second day on the first beta will Muslims will worship Allah, we're not going to do any major since the second beta, all of that. Plus, if you come to us, we will defend you.

01:12:55--> 01:13:36

We will defend you like we defend our own family. And by the way, this is defensive, not offensive. And in the Battle of butter, as we mentioned, that was when it was extrapolated to be offensive as well. Otherwise, the actual day I was defensive that we will protect you. As we protect one of our own nothing more. We're not going to go fight on your behalf. But if we are fought, then we will protect you. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted this VEDA. And he began and he began sending the people to emigrate, of course before he before he immigrated. Of course, there's one final major incident that is very difficult to date. And that is the incident is our mirage.

01:13:36--> 01:13:39

Probably the most difficult thing to date is stolen marriage.

01:13:41--> 01:13:58

Some say took place in the third year of the Dow, some say the fifth year, some say the 10th year Some say the 13th year, everyone has literally the last year they say of the Dow of the of the Macondo. There's so many opinions and it's very difficult to date. But the fact that

01:13:59--> 01:14:01

there is no mention of Khadija

01:14:02--> 01:14:51

in the incident of Islam helps us to maybe guess that Islam took place after the death of Khadija. And this would make complete sense as well. Because as we said, is slot one Mirage was the greatest personal miracle to the profits of the LaGuardia center. It's a personal miracle. It's not really a miracle for the rest of us. We just have to believe in it. It's a miracle to Him and for Him. Personal miracle. And perhaps it makes complete sense, therefore, to say that he was gifted when he needed it the most. When did he need it the most after five after after Khadija, when literally the woman who's on this webinar has half himself surmises that in that year of sorrow,

01:14:52--> 01:14:55

the lowest of the low he was literally taken to the highest of the high.

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

He needed to be fortified again, so he is lost.

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

He's lost Khadija he's reminded he has Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:15:04--> 01:15:42

And so he's taken up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is shown all of the prophets, all of the prophets, pray behind him, make dua for him, praise Him. And all of the miracles happen as Allah says, LA, I'm an editor of Bill Cobra, and Islam. Islam and marriage are two separate things. But they happen the same night, as we said, Islam is the journey to Jerusalem. And marriage is the journey up and Israel and marriage because they took place on the same night. So we consider it to be basically one thing, even though there are two separate journeys, and that is, we went over this in two or three lessons in a lot of detail, and alum mentioned is run through this law. And certain

01:15:42--> 01:15:42


01:15:44--> 01:16:20

M is marriage, as mentioned sort of the najem analogy, as mentioned, sort of the najem. So so that is sort of the najem mentioned these two incidents. And then finally, we'll get to the very last thing for tonight. And that is of course where we conclude this summary. And that is the issue of the hijra itself, that after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had given permission for everybody else to migrate. And slowly but surely Muslims are migrating with difficulty with problems. Some of them were stopped, some of them had to sell everything that they had. So haber Rumi, for example, he had to literally give back everything. Some of they had to make promises a lot

01:16:20--> 01:17:04

of problems happen. But slowly but surely, most of the Muslims, if not all of them, they emigrated until finally the final straw, the Irish are terrified that the profitsystem will leave. So what did they do, they finally decide to do the dastardly deed that up until these 13 years, even if a few times they have gotten physical, but still as a tribe, they haven't joined against him. Finally, on the very last night of his time in Makkah, they decide this too dangerous for him to flee. We have to get rid of him before he gets out of here. And so they decide the dastardly deed to assassinate one of their own. And as you all know, they surrounded his house. And that was when gibreel came

01:17:04--> 01:17:18

down and said Now is the time and he covered up a lot covered up their eyes, blinded them, and the Prophet system flood in the middle of the night with Abu Bakar, who had already been planning for this state three days in the hottest hour, and then made their way to

01:17:19--> 01:17:59

to Medina, and on the way a number of miracles happened. The story of Soraka and the story will mimic that and Other Stories until finally, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam arrived safely in Medina in the bat in the masjid that was to become the masjid of Koba and 500 of the unsold they came dressed up and armed and they surrounded the prophets of the La Jolla, he was selling them and they welcomed him and the men and the women climbed onto the houses and the streets were basically flooded with joy. And we already sensed in the air a whole new time, a whole new era, the beginning of a new dawn the seed of a new millennia. And the story of that is of course the story post digital

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

and that inshallah Tada. We will summarize when we finish the entire Madani sila, then inshallah we'll pause and then we will summarize all of the Medina zero in one lesson as well. And with that, inshallah Tada, really there shouldn't be any questions right, this is summary should be no questions today. Correct.

01:18:21--> 01:18:30

Okay, we can take some questions inshallah. And then next week in sha Allah, we will start the Battle of the precursors, the Battle of workers, which is

01:18:32--> 01:18:42

the most detailed battle we have developed. We have a lot of details for the Battle of war, and a lot of lessons to be drawn from the battle that will hit any questions about the Macan or premack. And, yes,

01:18:52--> 01:18:57

Abu Bakar was two years younger. People Booker was two years younger.

01:18:58--> 01:18:59

Or Omar.

01:19:01--> 01:19:04

I will have to look up eight or nine years younger.

01:19:06--> 01:19:11

Omar was 26 when he converted Omar was 26 when he converted

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


01:19:16--> 01:19:52

when he passed away, he was 83 so do the math. Earth man was killed when he was 83. Of course, it was much younger because it converted at the age of seven and the processor was 40. And so it was 33 years younger than the Prophet system. As far as man do the math, he was 83 and earth man was killed 10 plus 12 or 24. See, so Earth man in the process and we're roughly similar age, few years younger 61 of the process, so the SR that one of the oldest was abubaker on earth manuevers similar h
