Series: Yasir Qadhi - Seerah
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now elaborates on the events that are happening in preparation for the Battle of Tabuk.
Amongst them, the first and foremost is the collection of money for the Battle. Many incidents occur in this time such as the famous incident of the competition between Abu Bakr As Siddeeq RA and Umar Ibn Al Khattab RA for the largest amount of money that would be given. Eventually, Umar RA had to accept defeat at the hands of Abu Bakr RA as he knew heart in heart that it would be impossible to match what Abu Bakr RA was ready to part with to please the Prophet ﷺ.
Other incidents that occur are related to Abdur Rahman ibn Awf RA who gave 200 ooqiyas for the battle.but the story that triumphs all of these is the story of Uthman ibn Affan RA who gave the largest amount of his wealth for the battle.
The story of Al Waathida Al Asqa is also an interesting one where he had promised a reward of granting his share of the Ghanimah for the one who would take him on the Ghazwa (he was a bit delayed). The story of Abu Kaythama al Ansari is next up for discussion and his situation was almost the same as that of Ka’b Ibn Malik. But he ultimately made it. How did it happen? Also, an interesting incident is related to Abu Dharr al Gifaali who seemed to be having some problems with his camel.
The construction of the Masjid Durar by ibn Salool stands out as one of the key developments of the battle of Tabuk. What was Allah’s instruction to the Prophet ﷺ on this Masjid?
Allah revealed Surah Tawbah from verse 107 to 108 highlighting this particular masjid as a cause of harm, kuffar, division of the believers,pain and immense suffering and hence, Allah asked the Prophet ﷺ to not step inside or anywhere in the vicinity of the Masjid.

So we were talking about the fifth benefits of the
the story of cabinet and magic. Okay, so let us now we finished the story of cabinet and magic, we now move on to other incidents. Now again, remember the Battle of the book, there's really no battle to discuss, the Battle of the book is full of incidents that we derive benefits from at least a dozen, many incidents. So the interesting point about about the book is that we're spending so many weeks and we haven't even done maybe 50% 60%. By today, we still have many lessons left. But we're not going to discuss any battle. It's not like that we talk about actual fighting, rather, the Battle of the book has so many benefits in these smaller stories. So today, we move on. And because
these stories, they kind of go through the entire battle of the book, we're not going completely chronological. So some things will mention are going to go basically through the entire story of the book, for example, the message that the hypocrites built, so the messenger that the hypocrites built, the story begins at the beginning, it continues throughout and it ends at the end, we haven't even talked about the actual expedition yet, we're gonna have to jump to that to talk about the masjid. And then we're gonna come back inshallah and then do incident by incident. So we begin now we're still back in Medina, and the profitsystem is calling for sada and there are many stories
given about the Sahaba, who donated their money, and the problems and the sufferings and the generosity that were shown, and also the sarcasm of the hypocrites, and there's benefit to be derived over here. We begin with the very famous incident that we've all heard. And it is a beautiful incident of the competition between Abu Bakr and Omar, we've all heard this story so many times. And it is a story narrated in this unit of autonomy. And it deals with the Battle of taboos that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stood up and he continued to ask for charity, until Omar thought to himself, today is the day that I can beat a boubakeur. That's what he's thinking, today
is the day I can beat a worker, and he went back home and he got half of his money, half of his money. now realize I've said this many times before, money back then was a scarce commodity, you didn't know when the next batch of money would come. You're not getting a monthly stipend, a salary, the concept of a salary is very new. And it has changed the world economics, you know how much you're getting. And if you get it every month, if you're employed at Hamdulillah, you get it. The concept of this salary is very new for the Sahaba money was very erratic, they might get one dinar today nothing for many weeks. And and, and then maybe in one expedition, or one or one, one business
transaction, they might get 100 dinars, and then nothing for years. So the fact that Bob goes and he gives half of his money, if we were to give half of our money, we know two weeks from now, I'm going to get my paycheck another two weeks another paycheck, so is replenishing. For Omar to give half of his money is a very big deal even for us to give how we cannot imagine half of our money imagine for Omar to give half that means that he doesn't know when the next batch is gonna come. So I'm gonna hop set house, I'm gonna give half of my sadhaka. And he brought forth half of his money. And when the process of them saw this money, and he knows and what is not a rich man, and he's bringing a bag
of money. So he says, Well, what have you left for your family. And Tom says, I have left a similar amount, meaning as much as I've given you, I have for my family as well. Then Abu Bakar came in he also has the bag of money. And Abu Bakar is also another rich man. So the process of also asks him What have you left for your family. And he says, I have left them a lot and His Messenger, meaning I haven't left any money, but I have to put in a lot of that Allah subhana wa tada will replenish me. And when aboubaker said this almost said to himself that will lie here, I'm never gonna compete with you again, I'm always going to end up losing. Now this habit has so many benefits of the most
obvious benefits is the fact that the Sahaba are competing with one another to do good deeds. And this is something that unfortunately, by and large has been lost amongst most of the Muslims. The Sahaba are monitoring. How much is somebody praying? How much is somebody paying? How much is somebody fasting, they're monitoring, and they're wanting to win the race in the eyes of Allah, that nobody's gonna beat me to that place in gender and this is
Something we do for the dunya This is something we do for this world. There's a competition, we're gonna, you know, get into the race and do our best in our job in our workforce in our little niche. We want to be top and when they get to promotion, we're going to bend over backwards, make sure that everybody notices what we're doing. And when the promotion when it comes to Islamic affairs, who's monitoring what the rest of the people are doing, for the sake of Allah, the Sahaba are monitoring. And this is proven by so many other narrations. We've discussed some of them, that the Maha juniperus and jasola the unsolved they fast as we fast they pray as we pray, but they give sadaqa
and we don't have anything to give sadaqa. So notice, they're monitoring. The Mahajan are monitoring. They're fasting the same amount, and they're praying the same amount, but they're giving charity we don't have money to give. So all of this demonstrates that the Sahaba are monitoring each other and they're wanting to race and in fact, Allah says in the Quran, Sadie read Mr. Filton, Sabu. And the word sabya. literally means race. subject is race. And Allah uses the verb saboo when it comes to good deeds, when it comes to racing to gender, and by the way, the Quran does not use those verbs when it comes to this world, this world. For example, when it comes to this world, Allah says
in the Quran, once salata Juma is over for the Odia, to Salatu fantasy to go forth and spread. Don't race, walk away gently, and seek Allah as it is. Right. But when it comes to gender Sadie who subiaco race forward to get to gender. So here we have Omar saying, today I shall race Abu Bakar and win him in the race. It's a very beautiful mentality. We also have over here, the concern of the Prophet sallallahu. I think he was setting them for the women and children that they need money desperately. But when Omar brings his money, the process and said What did you leave for your family? He's worried about the family. And the shows us we are not asked to donate above our means
that the priority is indeed our family. And Bob said I have enough money for my family here is for you. And this is for my family. And no doubt aboubaker radi Allahu anhu did something that only aboubaker can do. And this is something that goes back to the amount of a worker, and it is an exception, even Omar did not get to that level. And it is not something that we
encourage you. So it's an example. It's a method that our religion has given us of the generosity of a woodworker. But the fact of the matter is that the Koran tells us when we give, then give between the two, right? Don't be extravagant and don't be miserly and stingy. And this is the general rule. If our amount was to the amount of a bucket, that's a different story, but we are not to that level. So these stories motivate us and these stories incite us to give but we knew we knew do need to realize that it is not something our religion tells each and every one of us to do to give all of our money. Another example given in the books of Sierra Abdullah madam now, he gave 200 opia and
oltenia is an amount of grain is a bow in English that is called a bushel of grain. He gave 200 years in South Africa and the battle in the Battle of tebu. And this is a very good amount and what is interesting who is Abdurahman him now
How much money did he come with to Medina nothing.
He came with nothing.
When he came to Medina, he just had the clothes on his back. And now we have in eight years, nine years Mashallah tomato law, he has now reached to the level of basically very rich person. And this shows us dedication, persistence, it shows us that having money in and of itself is a positive if you are somebody like yourself, right? having money is a blessing from a law. If you are a generous person, there's nothing wrong in our religion with being a multimillionaire and what not. If you are a generous person, that is the best thing. You're generous with money, and now offers the role model for this. How did he get to 100 golias buying and selling trading and we know the story that when he
goes from the first day in Medina, he starts buying and selling he buys and sells until finally he manages to get a small quantity of gold and then back and forth until finally he now has 200 or three years of grain. The story of Earth man of course is narrated at this time, in many books, in many books of Hadith, even this is a hadith from Earth mind even I found that Earth man rhodiola who died and who that the Battle of the book coincided with the return of one of his caravans from Syria. So he had financed an entire caravan to Syria and won the battle of to book the call began for finances. That was the time when his caravan returned from Syria. And Abdullah I'm sorry, it's
not even a fan. He decided to sell the entire caravan lock, stock and barrel. Everything from the camels to the saddles to the good
on it, everything he sold it. And he got around 1000 gold coins. And that is a fortune at any time, especially at that time. I mean 1000 gold coins in our time would be
no, no, no no. Those gold coins in our time they sell for like 500 to $700 the gold just the gold, right? So imagine now
more than half a million dollars, right. And this is I mean, this isn't a one time transaction. You know and earth might have been I find he brought he didn't have he sold it right there in the marketplace. As soon as it came back. The caravans, as soon as it came back, right then and there, he sold everything to all of the buyers in the marketplace. And he didn't have a bag. So he put the gold on his tote, you know, like this, he put it on his on his tote, and he walks back to the message of the Prophet system, which is still up and the gold coins in that. So those were heavy those back then made out of real world, right? If we one of our soldiers is gonna break away, no
cotton and polyester, that's the real deal over there. So he takes that 1000 coins, and he walks back into the masjid. And this is Medina you don't need an armed guard. You don't need anybody's gonna do nothing. This is Medina of the prophets are set up. And he then pours it in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he says, this is you know, feed fee sebelah for the Battle of to book and the Prophet system began looking is literally a pile of gold in front of him, literally imagine a pile of gold. And the Prophet system began, you know, flipping the coins around. And he said, Well, law he mother,
even I found my daughter, even a fan, my father by the young, that will law he whatever it been a fan does after today, it will not affect him, he has earned genda with this, that whatever he has does today that it will not affect him. And Subhanallah this statement of the Prophet system, it was used by Earth man, even our fan, it will you use birth management, often 30 years later, around 30, roughly 30 years later, when the Neo hot objects, we'll call them because they weren't quite hot objects yet. But these people became the cottage knights, when the Neo hada just surrounded his house. And they had come from all around from all the other outlying Arab regions. And they were
demanding, you know, the most trivial matters, why did you appoint side that nobody will cost as the governor? Why did you do this? Why did you do that? very trivial things in the grand scheme of things, you know, and they're demanding so many conditions, and they become harsher and harsher. And one of the things that earthman said to them do not know that here you are criticizing me over these trivial things. Do you not know that the Prophet system himself said, when I gave the the money for the Jason Ursa, they used to call the Jason Ursula, we talked about that, when the names of the book, The army of difficulty, that he himself said, no matter what I do, it will not affect him. So
if he said that basically, who are you to criticize these petty things, right? And the Sahaba testify that yes, the prophet system had indeed, said that. And another version of this incident of Earth might have been a con, that we learned that the Prophet system was giving a husband he was encouraging people to give. And this was like the fundraiser if you like that, he's encouraging, who's gonna give who's gonna give, so Earth man stood up and said, I shall give 100 camels and all that is on them. Then the process of continued to say, who's gonna give who's gonna give, then he stood up, I said, I'll give 200 camels. And then the process of continued exhorting, until finally
he said, I shall give 300 camels and all that is on them. And that was the quantity of camels that was supposed to come back. So it is as if he had announced this that he was going to give it I shall give 300 camels with all that is on them. And the Prophet system then came down from the Ember. And he said, that Earth man has no sin after what he has done today, or if man has no sin, after what he has done today. So it appears as if Earth man had announced he would do this before the camels came before the caravan came. When the caravan came, he then sold it and he then brought the money to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA set it up. So these are examples of the generosity. On the flip side
of the coin, we also have examples of the mocking of the hypocrites, how did the hypocrites mock
the munafo and gave nothing, nothing at all. Not only did they not give anything, they also mocked those who gave.
So not only were they stingy, they tried to prevent others from giving to the cause of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they would mock anything that was given, either by publicly saying something or by nudging and winking, nudging and winking at each other. And they would say, Oh, this guy he gave so much he's just showing off. He's not doing
If he submitted that we still have the same sentiment in our times that people are judging others when they are giving feasibly to law and they would ridicule somebody who gave a small amount saying what is this amount going to do? What is the purpose of this amount and Allah subhana wa tada exposed them in the Quran and
criticize them severely. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Toba, that alladhina, el mizuna and moto were in a minute, minute minute Fs autochart these munafo are those who make fun of the believers when they give their charity. And they scoff at they make fun of those who have nothing to give, except their hard sweat. They make fun of the people that have nothing to give other than the earnings of their sweats basically. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will make fun of them. Sahara la home in home, rather than than making from the believers. Allah says socket Allah home in home, Allah subhana wa tada will make fun of them, and what an evil and painful punishment. What is the
story of this ayah and this is similar to tober verse 79, October, he mentioned that one of the unsolved when the command was going the process was daily asking for money who's gonna get who's gonna give. So one of the unsired he decided to give something. So he spent the entire night in manual labor, pulling water and giving it and pulling water and then selling it is the cheapest thing you can do. You cannot really that's like, you know, it's like a copper Penny or something like this, you know, the least you can do. So he spent the whole night pulling water and then selling it the next day. And he then earned two handfuls of dates with that the whole night's work.
So he came the next morning. And he said Jada sutala, here is one handful of dates for you. And the other handful to feed my family. So I will spend the whole night
manual labor getting water out of the well. And here is what I have one handful of dates that you can take. So one of them went off your phone stood up and he mocked him and he said that, do you think Allah needs this quantity of dates? And the second one stood up and said that you are more in need of this quantity than anybody else? meaning you're so poor? You need this more than anybody else? Why are you making a mockery by giving this and of course, this Hobbes feeling was you can imagine, very hurt. It was very, it was a very painful thing that he spent the whole night and he's given whatever he has, and now the one afternoon in public in front of the whole crowd, they make
fun of him. What are you? What are you what who needs this? Allah doesn't need this. You are so poor, you should give charity to yourself. That's basically what they're saying. Who does Who do you think you are to give to Allah and His messenger? And so this is when Allah subhana wa tada revealed that they think they're making fun of the believers, solid Allah who mean whom Allah will mock them what or whom Isaiah when Adam, and they shall have a painful punishment. And when the prophet SAW so they said them began calling for going out FISA Beatty law, so they not only didn't participate in the fundraising, they began to give excuses why they could not go one after the other before and
after. So some of them will not feel alone gave excuses before the battle, and others gave excuses won the process and returned. Right and of the bizarre stories narrated in the CFR which really shows you how the munaf one word that
the Prophet salallahu idea he was selling asked one of the Friends of Abdullah bin obey bin salute one of the Friends of the hypocrites, he himself was a hypocrite, and his name is a gentleman place and he was one of the elite of the hazard edge and he remained a munaf his entire life but he was of the circle of Abdullah and obey binsar rule. So the process of said yeah, Jed, oh, Jed. Are you not interested in going to fight the Romans? Come, let's go let's fight. We're going to go fight. And judge said, O Messenger of Allah. Can you not Excuse me, can you not give me permission for by Allah listen to this excuse for by Allah my people know that I have a weakness for women.
And I am worried if I see the banana to been a loss for
the women of the Romans, that I will not have any patience that I will not be able to live normally after that or whatever he intended a lot. Right. Now what a flimsy excuse. That if I'm going to see the women of the Romans, the bonacci been asked for they would call the Romans the bundle us for
the the tribe of yellow, so they would call the Romans yellow people not white because for them, White was not what we call white for the Arabs White was
fair, brownish, what we would call wheatish complexion that was white, what we call white, they would call yellow just like Indian American American
Indians would say pale face or yellow face or whatever right off white
off white Yes. So so they would call the Romans the yellow people
but in Oxford and this munaf said I cannot go just in case I happen to see a lady on the other side of them by not bending over then my life will become difficult and he what a excuse right? And so the process ended the reverse out of the one who turned away from him and he accepted this is like okay don't go to that meeting if you don't want to go then don't go and Allah subhana wa tada revealed in the Quran that woman whom will Latina
woman who Latina Office of homie out
woman whom Allah Dena and there are those who say, dilly dally Wallah Jeff teeny, give me permission, and don't test me. Don't test me. It's a big fitna for me to see the benefits of bundle offer. So Allah says, There are those who say it really give me permission excuse me, one out of 10 need and don't test and try me. And then Allah says Allah Phil fitternity Sokoto. This is a powerful verse in the Quran that the monaka saying lots of teeny, don't test and try me. And Allah says Allah feel fitternity supporto they have fallen headfirst into the fitness, right by their lies and by these flimsy excuses. They have fallen headfirst into the fitna and Allah subhanaw taala revealed
and sola Toba is full of references to the moon after horn that Allah revealed Fatiha mohalla for NaVi Makati, mckaela rasulillah, he will carry who a new jacket even more than was a visa. We'll call you that and fearful how the hypocrites are happy. They're overjoyed that they are not going with the profits of the Life Center and they're sitting down on their behinds. They're sitting down leisurely, and they're not going and they're overjoyed. And they're telling one another Latin fiddle Phil, don't go in this hot weather. Who's gonna go in this hot weather? Allah says, well now do Johanna a shadow How low can we have? The fire of jahannam is much harder than this. If you only
understood for the old Haku hollyland Well, yep, cuca zero. Let them stop there laughing and start crying because of what they have done. Very powerful verses in the Quran. And in another verse, Allah soon as the third verse 42, Allah says, Locanda alabang Caribbean was suffering Casa then let taluka if the journey was small, and the distance easy and and a lot of money would be would be gained in the in the in the battlefield, they would have followed you what I can borrow the daddy, he was Shaka. But they were.
They felt uncomfortable at the distance of the journey. So all of them, all of them were lying with their excuses. And the law says if it was a short journey with a lot of money, all of these excuses would have vanished, they would have come. But because it was a long journey, and perhaps facing the Romans, they became panicked and they gave their excuses. Now contrast this Allah is saying they're overjoyed. They were happy. They're not going they're consoling one another who wants to go in that heat. Contrast this with the story of the Sahaba, who couldn't afford to go, who who couldn't afford to pay or to go, there were groups of Sahaba, they were called the Becca own, the criers, their
groups of Sahaba, called the buck owner. Why? Because they did not have neither the means to give money, nor the personal possession of a camel to go. And the profitsystem ran out of money to purchase camels for everybody. And so groups were left straggling behind without any camels. And they kept on waiting to the very end to the very end. And some of these were relatives of who on Sunday, by the way, that from his sub tribe, most of these relatives from his sub tribe. They're from the tribe of mosaica. That and of them also were some of the
some of the later Mahajan. One of them is about they've been Saudi as well the famous about the one who wore the the bracelets of of kisara. Also all about them in Saudi that there were a group probably seven maybe 12 or 13. We don't know exactly how many there was a group that to the very end, all the money ran out. They were not able to purchase camels. And so when the final day came, and the profitsystem said I'm sorry that you do my middle commodity, this is in the Quran, in the Quran, that we're in the process and I'm setting that as you do. I have no money to give you a camel to write on right. So what lo What are you know whom to field. They turned away and their eyes
worked streaming tears has an allegedly wonderful home. They were so sorry and grieved that they
Couldn't find the money to go contrast this freehand mobile phone and has an look at the difference of email that some people are overjoyed with the false excuse. And others are crying with a legitimate excuse contrast, the two will lie between the two is the heavens and the earth. False excuse lying, and they think they're scot free. And on the other hand, they are excused. They don't need to go. After all, it's not their fault they can't afford. It's not the Army's fault. It's not the process, but they have a legitimate excuse. They are forgiven, but they're crying that how can we miss this great opportunity and look at the contrast between the two people of a man and as well,
when a love revealed in the Quran defending the Sahaba, who gave a handful. So defending the savage gave a handful. So one of the Sahaba stood up.
And his name was Aruba. And we don't know anything about really other than this one incident. And he was over the poor, he had nothing at all. And he said, You're rasulillah I have no money to give for you. I have no money to give you but I give you my honor, my dignity, that in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala that I will defend those against those people who are irritating you either when I feel I don't have any money to give you but I give you my honor. I give you whatever dignity I have, that I will then defend you against these hypocrites. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I have accepted your charity, I've accepted your charity. And this shows us that some handle of the Sahaba
were so eager to give the Profit System even that which was non monetary. And with regards to these people that are under under Baca own with regards to these people, it is narrated that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the expedition of your book, there are people in Medina, still in Medina, and they were interviewed at the time, you have not traveled even a step or gone through any Valley, except that they have a company jus and they will get the agenda of you.
They said O Messenger of Allah, even while they're in Medina, they're gonna get our agenda. After all that we've done, they're gonna get our agenda. And the process of them said, even while they're in Medina, because they had a legitimate excuse have is a home will have this, they had a legitimate excuse, they couldn't come with you. And this is a beautiful, beautiful Hadith for the benefits of of what
Nia, good Nia, having the intention, a sincere intention, not just a half hearted intention, a genuine intention, if I had a million dollars, I would do this piece of it. And if I had this, I would do that. You don't lose anything by having these positive intentions. And in fact, according to other narrations, we learned that anybody who makes such an intention alone will give them one lesson just for making the intention, one good deed. So we have so many missed opportunities every time we should say, if I had the means I would do this, if I had that I would do that. Just make the Nia and SubhanAllah. With regards to these people, their Nia was so strong, so powerful, that the
entire agenda of the whole army that is walking back and forth for one month's journey, they get it while they're sitting at home in Medina, because they would have come if they had the means to come. There also, is the story of unwanted eminent Scott, one of the famous onsolve.
That he kept on asking and waiting for money until there was no money available. He did not have a camel. So he kept on going everyday to the marketplace, saying that, you know, who is going to allow me to, you know, come with him on the expedition. And for whatever reason he was not chosen, whoever had a camel basically chose they chose other people. So then finally, on the last day, on the last day before the expedition departed, he said, Who will take me and I will give him my share of the honeymoon. I'll give up everything. I'll pause here. The rules affect state. The I've said this a number of times, but I'm sure most of you have forgotten,
including those who take notes that
the military at the time was voluntary, meaning what do I mean voluntary. It wasn't a paid military. It wasn't a paid army, and those who participated in battles, there are rulings of fit for how much money they get. And that aneema was very essential for their livelihood. This might be I mean, for some of them, for example, the bottle of hay but it made their wealth for the rest of their lives. They had a small portion of land, and these people had no money to purchase land, right. So participate in in a battle.
Also had monetary benefits if you won vanilla, and it was definitely an incentive. And there's nothing wrong with a dual incentive. There's nothing wrong with the dual incentive, the dual incentive being FISA, Beatty law, and also some worldly benefits, right. And this is a filter point, which
I guess I need to explain here because people do get confused. You must have 100% in class, when it comes to
Nia for doing an act for the sake of a law versus the people's praise. You cannot mix the people's praise with a class of Allah.
If you mix a class of Allah with the people's praise, it ruins the class. So if you give $1,000 and you want people to praise you for giving $1,000 your $1,000 has gone to null and void. Because you cannot mix a good deed for the sake of a law and for the praise of the people. Is that clear?
You can mix a good deed for the sake of a law and for some monetary benefit for yourself. This is not cheap.
at all, in fact, it is completely hidden.
And there are 1,000,001 examples. The Quran teacher needs the stipend.
The person cannot teach what on 10 hours a day without getting a stipend. Right, the Islamic Studies teacher, the if the messages that have an Imam, the hedge businessman, the businessman who's going for meaning the hedge, the businessman who's making a business out of hedge.
Right. Now we need people to make businesses out of hedgerows, we're not going to be able to go correct. They spend months and years preparing the package doing this and that, of course they need a profit hedge is an act of worship, is it not? So these people are combining an act of worship with
worldly monetary Nia, this is 100%. Done.
by unanimous consensus of all the scholars of Islam, and Al Hamdulillah, we thank Allah or else we would not have had
much of what we need to have, right? We would not have had anybody who's doing anything that is religious, because you need people who's gonna do the Hajj who's gonna do who's gonna become the Imam who's going to teach the Koran, you need this. And so this is Helen. And the Quran explicitly allows at least la cocina uninterruptable. Arabic and the Quran explicitly allows it and the profitsystem himself said, the best salary anybody can ever take is for teaching the Quran. There's a hadith in Bukhari that people are getting salaries for left, right and center, the best money you can take the most rightful money is for teaching the or under Hadith in Bukhari. So this shows us
that this is completely valid. So what
when he is looking for a ride. So the rules state that
the one who is going on a camel shared by somebody else you will get one share if you like, and the owner of the animal will get three shares,
or some say to depends on the the fifth version that you follow, are there
any method that you follow that either he gets double or triple, he gets more. So Lassila is going to get a percentage of all of the share of the army, he's going to get a percentage. So he said, Who is going to take me and I will give him my percentage, whatever I get will all be his. Now the stakes have changed now. And so one of the elder of the unsought he said that you want me to take you
on the condition that you will give me your, your percentage or your share your Sam, he said, Yes. So the inside he said, but we will have to take turns writing, meaning I'm not going to give you the camel, we're gonna have to take turns writing and we'll share the meals together. So what I said yes, I agree to this, okay. So they agreed and worth it. I said, I traveled with my best companion I ever had, meaning he was the best companion I've ever had, in any journey, the most generous and the most kind companion I ever had, then when I came back, so I will explain where they earned this money even though there was no battle but certain aneema was, in fact, one in the battle and in the
incident of the book. And so he actually got a number of camels, we don't know how many he just says, a bunch of camels, I got them. And so I came back to Medina and I brought them to the unsightly. And I said here, this is the share that I promised you. So the unsightly looked at this flock or herd of camels Is it a flock of camels, a herd of camels or the English people
You've heard of camels. Okay? You've heard of a herd okay? hamdulillah so I'll say it's a herd but I'm not 100% Sure. So he sees this event or herd How much do you need for a herd? Will four count as a herd or not? Seven and up. Michelle
has the confidence he has. Mashallah. Have you ever dealt with camels? No. Okay. Even though this is not a camel question, it's an English question In any case, so he has a mini herd of camels. And the unsavoury says to him, show me these camels. So he brings them and the Ansari the rewire says he sits down on his saddle. He takes us out of he sits down. And he says, Bring them back and forth. I mean, this is how you examine the camels when you're going to purchase them, right? Show them to me bring so he takes them back and forth. And he is now you know, Subhana Allah, Masha, Allah is really enjoying the beauty of these camels. Then he said that inside he said to water, that your camels are
very beautiful. Why is it I said, these aren't my camels. These are your camels. This is the share that I promised you. And then the old man said,
to my dear nephew, go and take your camels for I didn't intend this, I intended something else. Meaning your I didn't mean to take the candles from you. It was just you know, I saw you giving up the camel. So I decided to take it was never my intention to take your camels and SubhanAllah. Again, this shows us the image of the Sahaba and the unsought. We also have the story of I mean, so many small stories. Again, this is the whole point of all of these small stories build up, we have the story of double hyphema on Saudi, Abu Haytham on Saudi
which shows us a very famous story shows us
even the Sahaba have to struggle sometimes, even the Sahaba have to struggle sometimes. And some of them they take more struggling than others. And cabbie Malik we talked about his story and how he had to struggle and suffer. I will hyphema almost got to the level of cab, the very last person to leave Medina, what happened with him, same story as cab delay, procrastinate, tomorrow, I'll do it, and kept on giving some excuse to himself, until finally the process have departed. Same story as cap, right. And he then goes back to his home. And ablate Emma had a garden outside of Medina. And he when he entered his garden, so his wives had prepared a
rug for him underneath the shade of the date palms, and they had sprinkle some water on the on the rug, why would they sprinkle water on the rug
to cool it down, and they had prepared. Some of the brothers are getting jealous here. So all right, they have prepared some food, okay, so he enters the garden. And he sees you know, his wives have prepared themselves they prepared the garden they prepared the food, all of this. And he says to himself that what am I doing here?
What is this? I am here in this pleasure?
When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam is in the desert and in the heat. So his guilt caught up to him at the very last minute before it was too late. And he said, Well, I'm not going to even sit down, like
the luxury of what he saw. affected him so much that right then and there, he saddled his camel and rushed out to catch up with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the next day when the processor woke up in the morning, they saw the lone rider coming in the distance the lone rider racing. And the Prophet says Adam said couldn't have a hyphema me to be a Warhammer. And it turned out to be a boo hyphema because our Prophet says that he knew about him is not enough. He knew that he had money. And he is now feeling regret. And by the way, the same story. We we said in the story of gab, that, you know, gab, we mentioned the story as well, that he's mentioned the story and when
the lone rider comes the process of him says let it be a boo hyphema because it was hurting him that I will hate them. I was not with the army. And they chose us so many things.
of them is that the process of his monitoring the Sahaba. And he every single Sahabi he knows that he's not here, I will hate them is not one of the you know the elite of the answer, but he is a well known Sahabi and he's monitoring Why isn't he here? And one will hate them. I came the processor asked him why will you delete? What was the issue? I mean, you were supposed to have lunch with us yesterday, and I will hate them. I told him the whole story. And the profitsystem said, Oh, look, I have a hyphema and he was you're way older than he may be meaning you just saved yourself. And he you know you just saved yourself a boo hyphema and this shows us as well. Tough Love. And in the
Prophet says Adam
gently rebuked him that you just managed to get out. And this was like, I'm happy.
You're here but realize that was very close called basically right? And that shows us the the the fine balance of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another famous story and the Battle of Tupac of one of the Sahaba is the story of Abu Dhabi as a fiery destroyer with her as a family, that Abu Dhabi as if it seems to have had an issue with his camel, the story is seems to be a little bit more muddled, that either his camel was on loan to somebody, or his camel fell sick one of the two that he was supposed to go, but his camel basically was not there for him to go. And it was his Nia to go, but for whatever reason, his Campbell basically either it fell sick or somebody had taken it
and not returned the camel, whatever the case was, that I'm sorry without it. This is the famous Buddha if it was story comes up so many times in his in famous narrative hadith of Buddha of the body. So a Buddha then took the,
the the stuff that he was on the back of his camel was supposed to be his backpack, if you like, and he put it on his back, that was supposed to be carried by the camel, he put it on his back. And he started walking from Medina, all the way trying to catch up nonstop with the prophet SAW Selim. So on the second or third day, they see the lone figure walking, not this isn't a boy with him on the camel. This is a man walking in the distance. And the Sahaba astonished Who is this man coming in the distance walking with his backpack is not even a backpack. This is the bag that you put on the camel. This is what you're supposed to put on the camel. And he has this on his back. And he's just
trudging along. Because, as I said, the caravan of 1015 20,000 people, it's going to be slow. It's going to stop at night spend the whole night and it is possible for a single man on a camel to catch up in a day for a walking man, maybe two, three days if he's so persistent as a Buddha. So Buddha eventually catches up and they're wondering who is this man who is this man? And the Prophet says Adam said
Subhana Allah so yesterday he said quote about hyphema it was a double height demo. And today he says, quote above. And of course what do you think is going to be of course it is a Buddha. Our Prophet system wanted a Buddha to participate in taboo, and it turns out to be a Buddha. And
the Prophet system said to the Sahaba around him, a Buddha did not hear this at the time. The process of him said to him, Rahim, Allahu Allah, may Allah have mercy upon a Buddha, young she was there who moved to the hope
that he will walk, he's walking by himself, he will die by himself. Well, your show to wonder who he is going to be resurrected by himself. May Allah have mercy on him without his walking alone, he will die alone, and he will be resurrected alone as well. And this is exactly what happened is a prediction is a prediction about a Buddha, the Buddha is a very interesting so have you maybe one day we'll give a longer lecture but without.
But what happened without had certain views of economics and of social policy, and of politics that were unpalatable to the rest of the Sahaba. In fact, not just to the rest of the Sahaba. Even our Prophet system said to abiathar or India or Aqaba, or Abu Dhabi or a weak man, when it comes to politics, weak here doesn't mean greedy, it means you are not a politician, you are not capable of being a leader. That's what it means weak here doesn't mean that you're going to be greedy for hungry or power or whatnot, it means you don't have the capacity to be a leader, that you are a weak man, and
being a leader is an Amana and it will be asked on the Day of Judgment. So never take charge of anybody, never be in charge of somebody else, and from what we glean from without us philosophy of life and, and and social policy and economics. So without, did not believe in
collecting possessions for the next day. He did not believe in having money for future events. And everything that you have should just be given to others. So you understand you can't really run a country or, you know, it's not something that you can really do very ascetic life, very harsh life. And he's living a very simple life. And when the money began to flow in, and the Sahaba began building larger buildings, let's say without was a very vocal critic, and he could not stand this even though it is head on. We know it is hella, and you know, not every and this is the beauty of our religion that not everybody is supposed to, you know, live in a very difficult life, people are
different and Allah has allowed this variety. So a Buddha was on the austere site and he demanded others to be on that side as well. And this got him into a lot of trouble with a lot of the Sahaba until finally Earth man he was in the Caliph Earth man, Earth man asked him to leave
Medina and go somewhere else because too many complaints were coming to earth man, because I thought that he said this, he did that he doing this, too much complaints is coming. So Earth man just said, Can you live in another city? So a Buddha decided to live by himself, not in any city. Just he took his wife and he had an elderly servant, and they just want to live basically, in the desert, how they lived and whatnot, we have no clue. But that's what he's just lived down in by himself. And inside reports on his, in the biography of Buddha, inside from his slumber party reports that when a Buddha was on his deathbed, his wife began to cry, and with us, and why are you crying, she said, I
am crying, because we don't even have enough cloth for your coffin. I don't have cloth to shroud you, and we don't have the power to bury you. It's just an old lady and a servant and whatnot, I cannot even we cannot even dig a grave for you. So without a said, Do not cry. For I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say one day, when we were sitting with a group of people, one of you shall die in the wilderness, one of you will die all alone.
Yet, a group of believers will pray over him.
And each and every one of my companions in that gathering has already died. And they all died with their families or in cities. And I'm the only one left and I am all alone in the wilderness means that he has to come on me. Right, and I'm the only one left and I'm all dying in the wilderness. So when I die, go sit on the path. Now. In those days, they had highways, believe it or not, and those highways were not like our highways. But it was basically this was the path that you took, they had stones to market they had once in every whatever, they would have water and whatnot. So they had these highways, basically the caravan ways you can say. So I would say when I die, take my body and
go sit at the side of the caravan route, somebody will come. His wife said, why would anybody come now, because this isn't hatch season. So this is not a road that is well traveled. These are going to be the roads that are going to be traveled once every year or so who's going to come now. So a Buddha said,
Do as I say, go on the path for a while law He neither am I lying. nor was I lied to. Neither am I lying when I told you what the process of them said, nor was I lied to, nor did the process of lie to me. I know what he said, I'm not lying to you. He didn't lie to me. Listen to me. Allah will basically take some people and bring them to me. So he passed away. And the old servant and his wife basically moved his body to the pathway. And lo and behold, out of nowhere, almost instantaneously, a massive caravan riding their horses with fine garments and you know, large plant come and they almost run over. But they see on the side of the road, a dead body and an old lady wearing her veil
and a servant, a weak servant, and the servant stands up and says stop, stop, stop, help me bury a Muslim. So they say Who is this? So the servant says this is a booth outside what we realized. This is our without the Companion of the problem system. And lo and behold, Eben Masood is in this gathering our mode of analysis in this gathering so many other Sahaba in this gathering, and even Massoud begins to cry and weep, because he remembers, you know, 20 years ago exactly what the prophet says that, um, said, He says in 99, when they read your own sadaqa rasulillah processing has spoken the truth that I heard the prophets have said them say, may Allah have mercy on a Buddha, he
will walk by himself, he will die by himself, he'll be resurrected by himself. And they gave their own some of their own garments for the coffin of a Buddha. And they buried a Buddha. And they pray janazah in the middle of the desert, as the process of met predicted that you will die alone, but a group will come and pray over you. And that's exactly what happened. And this incident took place in the Philippines of Rosemont.
Sorry, in the color of it, and this was on the wards were going on. And that's why I've been Massoud and Amar are going back and forth because of the civil wars and without do not participate in those. So
so this is the incident of without elefante and then the final incident that we'll mention for today is the incident of the message of the roar, the incident of the hypocrites building the question
of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and inshallah next week we'll actually begin some of the incidents during the the Battle of Tivoli during the the the traveling of devil, the hypocrites back to the one afternoon remember them when I feel own. We're giving excuses not to go they didn't donate even a penny FISA vitola
Giving all sorts of flimsy excuses. And the profit system will accept any excuse. So much so that Allah himself very mildly, very mildly. He chastises the Prophet system. Why are you accepting every excuse? If Allahu Anka liver didn't tell him, Allah has forgiven you, but why are you giving them permission all the time. And it was the nature of our process and whatever somebody said, he would just accept it. And Allah subhana wa Taala himself said, Allah has forgiven you, but why are you giving them permission all the time. So when the situation became more and more tense, and Allah revealed versus telling them not to mock those other believers and whatnot, they decided to build
their own Masjid, so that they would have full freedom to do as they please, so that they could speak and preach and say whatever they wanted to say, without any harassment from the true believers. And Abdullah bin obey ebenso rule was supposed to be the,
the leader or the sheriff or the one who's leading the masjid, and they had the audacity to collect funds and build a Masjid, even while the Profit System is asking for funds for those with detailed work.
So they did not give a penny for the husband to table. Yet they managed to get the funds to build their own false Masjid.
they're giving excuses to go forth in the battle, and they build muscle through the door. Even before the Prophet says on these photobook they had finished the construction. Imagine their enthusiasm and energy was not for Allah and His messenger. It was for their own elitism their own inner circle. They built their own Masjid, which was close to Masjid, the hoba and our times, it was walking distance from Koba and that was another problem so close to home other building another message. So they built their own messages where the when one would typically congregate. And there is another reason given as well. And this is a reason that is very interesting reason is found in
the books of C and the books of C. difficile of poverty. And even within others, they mentioned the story that there was one final attempt from the hypocrites to try to counter the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was the final attempt. And the leader of it was not Abdullah saloon, but rather it was a friend of Eben salutes. We have mentioned him before last year, I think, or even before that, and his name was a blonde, middle, or raw hip. Does anybody remember a blonde with a raw hip? And when did we mention a woman of raw hip?
I mentioned the whole story of a Black Widow in detail and a lot of detail.
the Battle of
the Battle of boyhood that I mentioned the story of Warhammer or raw hip Abramoff, or raw hip was one of the one of the elite of the has Raj. And he was one of the few elders who was alive after the Battle of the civil war between the US and the hundreds remember the Civil War at least, or the Civil War, right, when almost all of the senior members had been killed. And that's one of the reasons why the younger members wanted something new. They didn't like the old ways. They were looking for something new. That's why they embraced Islam. That's why they they wanted the process to become their leader, an external figure. And Isha says, Allah gifted the prophets of Salaam, with
the Civil War of the opposition has Raj that prepared them for Islam. So this was why they were tired of the old ways, and they wanted something new. And so they embraced Islam and they became the answer. But some of the elders some of those who were supposed to become the leaders, they are now taken away. And the main person is Abdullah bin obon salute, and he remained in Medina. The other person that Sierra mentions that was similar to Abdullah bin urban salute was a bomber, a raw hip and our raw hip means the monk or the ascetic and he was called a raw hip because he converted to Christianity. And he became a very respected person amongst the, this is pre Islam, he converted to
Christianity, he became an ascetic and he became a very respected person, the the, the the people of Medina at the time yesterday, they loved him as an elder, wise religious person of integrity. They loved him. When the Prophet system came, we saw how in how much integrity he had, he actually wanted power. He loved the fame. It wasn't the actual integrity. So when the process we invited him to Islam, recite the Quran to him blauman
rejected Islam after the Battle of butter when there were no more pagans on and and and others allowed. So Abdullah innovative in saloon pretended to accept Islam and he became munafo of Mohammed fled to Mecca,
a barber fled to Mecca. And in the Battle of boyhood, and I mentioned the story in detail about that this is all a repeat, by the way. Right? This shows you how much you memorize My show is all the repeats. And
before the Battle of boyhood, he told the kurush that look, just let me speak before the battle, you will see all now You're the light bulb? Was it three watts or five watts? It goes off now, some basic light bulb goes off, right? Yeah.
Oh, it's an LED one. Michelle, if it were that bright, then we would if it were that bright, Michelle it would.
So this is the nine volt, you know, the homemade construction kits, you put it in, and it goes on and on. So I kept on boasting to the kurush. Just wait and see. As soon as my people see me, you just see how much respect they have. I'll get them on your side, they'll hand over the process. I'm on a silver platter for you. That's what he was saying. Right? Just wait. I know my people. And I know how much they love me. So the chorus, we're so happy, okay, we have him in our midst, his or her secret weapon. So right before the battle, they allow a bomber to go and give his speech. And he says to his people, all my people, that's me of why I'm gonna write him and come over here and do
this and hand over the process of and I'll give you this and we'll do that. And when they saw him, and he began telling them to hand over the profit. So they send them they began saying the worst things and they said, You're not a Wyoming ally of your company caffeine. Right. And you're this and you're that and they said the most, you know, harsh things against him? Who do you think you are to tell us to hand over the process and, and he was shocked to see his people so much opposed to him. And he turns back to the court. He said, I don't know what has happened to my people after I left. This isn't the people I remember from my days. And of course, it's not because Islam has changed
their loyalties. So when he realized that he cannot even be in Makkah, he left for Rome. This part, I did not tell you guys because we stopped the story over there. He then left for Rome. And he managed to get into the circles of the Caesar because we can imagine that and this is not unrealistic to put yourself in the shoes of you know the Romans here, here you have an Arab speaks fluent Arabic, now willing to live amongst you and be some type of Ambassador at large or tell you the situation of the Arabs, we can imagine the Caesar would have plenty of such Persians and Arabs and whatnot in his court to tell him the inner mechanisms of what's going on in other lands. So of
Ramadan, Rohit makes his way up. And he's now you know, basically he has access to the Caesar. We don't know the details, but basically, he's now in that circle that he has access to the Caesar. So now have Lama rights to his best friend Abdullah bin saloon. Okay, so now here we get to the story. And he tells him, make for me a base.
Make for me a base in Medina, and yesterday, make for me a base and allow me access to the people. ie, this is a revolt is an insurrection. Now, honestly, this is bizarre from his perspective to even think about this. It's way too late in the game, but it's desperation that he wants to regain his power of old. So he is saying, Let's start a revolt basically give me a place and a group of people and we will ferment from within. And once I have a footing in the city, I can then tell the Caesar to send troops in or gets a contingent and together we can then overthrow the Muslims. So Abdullah Ivanova, even cellule when he got this letter, that's when he decided to open up a new Masjid
that that Masjid would be
the headquarters if you like the base of this new revolt, okay? So because obviously he's not going to do it in the process of the masjid. So, he then built Masjid of the wrong mosquito There are of course is the name the Quran gives. He didn't call it Monsieur de la must do that there are means the destructive Masjid, the harmful Masjid, the evil Masjid, right the masjid of suffering and pain is what most of the armies and a law cause it must be so.
And by the way, our process made against a woman with a raw him
that may you die a stranger, may you die far away from your family and friends, and a whammer died all alone in Rome without a single friend without a single family person, just a complete stranger in a strange land. And that is a punishment by the way, which we in our times, do not realize but being a stranger in a strange land is a very difficult thing. Different
Language, different culture, nobody cares about you. So very, very difficult thing which many of us don't realize, but if you ever have the chance to go to another country, and you are nobody in that country, it is a very painful thing to be a stranger. So Obama died that type of death in any case back to our story here. So
I've done I've been already been settled constructs the masjid walking distance from mustard Koba and
as a token of utmost if you like mocking and disrespect, so Abdullah bin obey asks the Prophet system, why don't you come bless our Masjid come and pray to the gods in it so that we can officially open this is the cutting the ribbon ceremony, if you like, and the process and felt very uncomfortable, because the whole now he doesn't know about your story. Obviously, he does not know about his story right now. But the whole point of Abdullah bin obey building a machine at this time when we need the funds, and all of these mocking and whatnot has been revealed. And instead of giving us money, they're spending money on a machine we don't really need which is walking distance
from Oba. And he asked them why do you need the masjid and they said they are a sort of law, we have weak people they cannot walk. And so this message will be for the for the for the elderly, you know if it rains, not to walk in the rain, how many rains in Medina, once a year, and a once a year the rains come, but this is what they're saying, if it rains, it'll just be right there in our neighborhood. And so it was the nature of our processes to just, you know, overlook and accept. So, he said to them, that in his gentleness, he didn't want to say no, but he didn't want to say yes. So he said to them, we are busy now preparing for travel. In sha Allah when I come back,
we're busy now preparing for travel in sha Allah. When I come back, he didn't say yes. He said if Allah wills when I come back, he didn't say yes, I will come to your Masjid. He said when I come back if Allah wills then
and they built a messenger the machine was in operation for around a month, but the process never prayed there. They opened it before it's a book and the process of did not visit it. He did not pray there. On the way back gibreel came down and a lot revealed in the Quran surah to Toba verse 107 to 108 sudo to Toba verse 107 to 108 we're leading into the masjid on the road on Roku for on Whatsapp Video campaigner mininova never saw the limit horrible law What are superhuman COVID that those who have taken msgid one Latina taco Loomis, Jaden, those who have taken msgid there are on and there are means harmful painful suffering. So a law called the masjid must you do there are and that's the
name in the books of Syrah. This is the masjid of pain and suffering those that have taken msgid of harm while in adulthood and there are four reasons given this is Surah tober verse 107 to 109. This is the story so Toba 10719 those that have taken msgid number one of harm must be done later on. Number two work Ghufron
must be the cover. They're making this a question for disbelieving in a law not for believing in a law. Number three, what's a free combined meaning? They're dividing the believers? You're not supposed to divide the believers you're supposed to unite the believers when there is Masjid or right there and within walking distance you're making it and there's no need for you to make it. So the three are combined, meaning they're dividing the believers. And then number four, what a little salt and lemon how to have a law How about a pseudo human public and as an ambush, secret ambush for someone layman. For someone who has already waged war against Allah and His messenger. What is the
A bomber or Rahab a bomber and Catherine a woman that this is a secret ambush ill thought for the one who has already declared war against Allah and His Messenger while elephant and they will swear to you in our listener, we only want to good for them as from the masjid we're only doing this for the weak and the elderly for the sick and the poor to save us from the rain. While law who yes I do in the home look at the bone and Allah is testifying. They are a bunch of liars. They're not doing this for good. A lot of testimony there bunch of liars lots of comfy This is the first 108 never ever go and stand there. Don't go to that mustard. Lotta comfy Aveda. Don't go to that Masjid. The
Masjid don't assess Allah taqwa. Min Ali Yeoman taco Murphy. Verily, the masjid that was built. From the very first day it was built upon consciousness and taqwa of Allah. That Masjid is more befitting that you pray over their fee job.
Do you hate Boehner and your total hero, in that message are people who want to purify themselves and Allah loves those who purify themselves. So when you believe came down with these verses on the way back from the book, The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, commanded or might have been the acid and others to go destroy that mustard and burn it to the ground.
Because this is a must have Cofer must have a solid must, you'd have to flip this is measured There are so the and this was one of the final stances between the munafo and in the process of them. And we're going to get to the final stance in a few months. When Abdullah bin obey dies. That was when Allah revealed in the Quran. Don't even ask Allah to forgive these people. That was like the final straw if you like that was it. So one of the main benefits of the book is this is the end now of them on our own in terms of their aspirations. Of course, they will not live to this day, but in terms of their aspirations and whatnot Halas is over now with the Battle of taboo so
the masjid was destroyed and what we learned from the story of mosquito Dorado Is that even a Masjid can potentially become a place of harm if it is built by evil people for an evil purpose. Allah calls this a Masjid of harm and a Masjid built for Kufa. So even a Masjid if it's built by hypocrites for the wrong reasons, can become a Masjid of evil. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was prohibited from praying in it. And eventually our Prophet system was even prohibited for praying for them will not own. Don't even ask Allah to forgive them. Don't even stand at their graves. Allah says we're gonna come to that in a while. What this also shows, by the way, is that
the hypocrites were well known. The hypocrites were well known. It's not as if they were unknown to the Prophet system and the Sahaba. They want to build their own Masjid. And they want to pray in that Masjid. It's well known. And the one who says Don't tell me to go to I'm going to see the Roman women, they're going to drive me crazy. This is well known. These are the hypocrites, right? So it's not as if the hypocrites were unknown. They were well known to the Sahaba. And the reason why many of us are not familiar with them, is because their names by and large have been
ignored and neglected. Right? They didn't do anything. So the books of Sierra don't really mention their names, but they were known from their faces and their
actions. Now Allah says no, in this series of verses.
The Masjid that was built upon taqwa has more right that you stand in that Masjid.
So there is another mustard that is opposite of mustard there are
a mustard that was built upon taqwa from the very first day. That mustard has more right that you stand over there in it are people who love to purify themselves. Now, what must you does that.
So, there are three opinions.
The first opinion it is must you to hoba
it is must you to cover and this is narrated in a hadith in without until a million others that
the people of Oba were asked that Allah subhana wa tada has praised you that you want to clean yourselves you want to get alojado so why did Allah specify you as being people of extra tahara yet alpha Haru means they purify themselves extra tahara is more than what is required. So the people have kobus at this hadith is mentioned in the chapter of his ninja. The Hadith has mentioned chapter ninja. It deals with the etiquette of the restaurant. And this is what the film is based on. So they said that we have a habit in hoba. In that area, we have a habit that we always use water when we wash ourselves. Now, this goes back to Eastern job is to jammies to cleanse yourself after you go to
the restroom. In our culture in modern Islamic culture across the world, we are accustomed to using water and a sign of a Muslim house is the Lota next to the toilet. Right? This is the giveaway telltale sign there's a water bottle or something next to the toilet. And for many of us we cannot imagine using the restroom without the water bottle. There's no water bottle running around. Where's that we go to a stranger's house you know, you're trying to wonder how to get the water bottle inside that nobody knows.
So there's a there's a portable note as well. You can collapse it and put in your pocket really embarrassed you can pick it out I'm not joking. There's something like this made in China as my shell Okay, everything's made in China. So
we are accustomed to using water and we cannot imagine using nothing when not using water. But it is surprising for every single Muslim to find out that all of them are in unanimous consensus that you don't have to use
Exactly shocking, isn't it to learn at this age, not that you should stop. Not that you should stop using water. Right? It's a great habit. But do realize that water was scarce back then. And not everybody. It was not.
It was not possible for every single society and household to use water for cleansing. So it is allowed in the shediac. To use dry material or electro the paper it is allowed. The shediac allows it although the Medina By the way, it allows it now please don't go back to that habit because it's a very good habit we have Alhamdulillah now, it is allowed but by unanimous consensus, it is better to use water clear. It is better to use water. So when the people of Oba were asked, Why did Allah describe you yet?
Which means extra tahara so they said we are a people in our culture because again Oba is a different mini city outside of Medina, in our basically culture and whatnot. We use water all the time. So Allah said yasuharu now this shows the masjid referenced is the message of the Oba. So we would say helaas clear explicit but then there's another Hadith and Muslim neighbor Mohammed where two Sahaba are arguing in the lifetime of the Prophet system. Which Masjid is it that Allah has said lemma student society document? Oh, William, is it Massoud Oba is it must you do rasulillah salam and so they took their matcher to the Prophet system right then in there.
He's like, you're gonna go and ask him. So he swore by Allah. lemma student was sasakwa he said this is this Masjid right here. And they were in mustard interview saucer. And that Hadith is in Muslim Imams and it is authentic. So he is swearing By Allah, it is this mustard. So we have one Hadith that seems to indicate is Baba, another Hadith seems to indicate a Masuda. rasulillah salam. And then the third opinion is that it is a generic verse. Every mustard built with taqwa is better than mustard.
And this is the correct opinion. And it incorporates both of the previous opinions into it
that both mustard Acaba and must Judo Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, or reference in the verse.
Last year, there was just a lot of I mean, what a Yeoman. I have put on taco Murphy, by the way, just a bit of a tidbit. Small tidbit here. Some of the scholars have derived the beginning of the Islamic calendar from this verse. How so? So when the
Sahaba gathered together, and they said we need a calendar, many of you should be aware, I hope all of you are aware that the process of did not begin a calendar. There was no calendar in his time, there was no yearly calendar, and the calendar was begun by a hot tub. And a hot tub decided we needed an annual calendar. And they said, When should we begin the calendar? When should we begin the calendar? Some said with the death of the prophets, I send them other said astronomy, other said budget. So these are like the big things. And then majority of the Sahaba said no, with the hedgerows.
And of course, that's what stuck. We begin the calendar with the hidden All right. So later scholars, it's not mentioned the Sahaba said this later scholars they kind of read into this verse. The Masjid that was built on the first day. So the first day of the calendar, right? Oh, what do you own? So the hedgerow is the Oh Woody. Oh, so that's where the calendar begins. And that's a bit of a stretch, but it's an interesting stretch, because it's kind of true, if you read in that way, right. In any case, that's besides the point here
the the muster the rod was destroyed and our Profit System never even came close to it, he never even entered it came close to it. And this shows us as we said that it is possible even for MSU to become a student or one final point inshallah and then we break and I have to give some announcements as well today.
Must you know there are is a reality and
we firmly believe it is possible for another Masjid to also become a type of mosquito.
If it is an evil place that is meant for this and that, but we have a big disclaimer here to make. What we have seen happen is that when a community breaks into two and another, forms another Masjid so the first community then says Oh, that is must util there are
because they disagreed with us. That is must Judo there are and this is very, very
dangerous and very arrogant.
Because most Judo there are broke away, not from the community of uncle's, but from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Breaking Away from a group of people doesn't make you coffee, breaking away from the Prophet Mohammed Salim. That is a big deal.
So if you disagree with me,
that does not hurt you on the Day of Judgment at all, if you're sincere.
If you disagree with me, and you say I don't like his views on X, Y, and Z, and you have another scholar that you agree with, okay, Hamas, so much so that you don't even want to pray behind me. You want to go and build your own Majid ally This is your prerogative and right. And I should not call you Oh, you're building must you do there are just because you disagreed with me? Who am I? That if you disagree with me, your discriminant becomes one not fear? Can your your free of menomonee who am I to do this? We have to be very careful in this regard. It is possible that a Masjid could be a type of mustard Iran. But let's leave that verdict up to Allah. In this world. If the people that
broke away and formed another Masjid seem to have a semi legitimate reason, and will lie 99.9% is a semi legitimate reason, right? from whatever perspective it could be. That you know, there are so many a million in one examples. So they break away and they form another question, you know, somewhere, somewhere away from the first one. Okay? Let them be.
It's not our business to go labeling other people. This is Majora. And unfortunately I've seen too many, especially in North America, way too many cases of the first community labeling the second community This is must you need to realize if you're saying that you don't or you should go and torch that Masjid down.
Is that what you're saying? I hope not.
you're implying that that is a Masjid of Cofer, because Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, that it is built upon the rod on what African will call for an incident. That's what you're saying? Are you really gonna accuse them of wanting to do copper? It's quite clear of where I'm at, or I wanted copper. It's quite clear, I believe nobody wanted copper. Are you accusing the guy who disagrees with you wanting copper. So this is arrogance. It's dangerous. It's very anemic, and it is possible, you might become mustered the roar by raising the bigger commotion in this world that we live in, live and let live. Let them go and build their Masjid. And if they're sincere, it will flourish if
they are not sincere, Allah subhanho wa Taala will expose them in this world before the next and you do your job and let others do their job. And inshallah, with that we conclude, is there a quick question because I have some announcements to make as well. quick questions before we make the announcements. Yes.
The process needed everything, not just cash. Dates are used as food. You drive the dates and you take them everything wheat, barley, everything you know, some people gave butter, whatever is you food because army needs to be fed, whatever can be done, you send it in the expedition. So it's not just cash. It's not just money that is needed. It is every single item that is either armor, weapons, everything is needed, and the processing requested for all of them. Yes.
Of course. Yeah. Tuna and tuna Zara him so rotten tuna bill, Matthew hooliganism, the Quran, the munaf are scared
that Allah will reveal in the Quran, something that talks about what there is in the hearts. This is in the Quran. So how perverted I know your question is, how perverted are you? That you know Allah knows what's in your heart. And yet you don't believe in Allah.
It's arrogance, really what it is that I'm not going to follow this man solo solo, I'm going to leave. I'm going to stay with the ways that my forefathers and I'm not going to follow him. So the munaf yakun actually knew Allah subhanaw taala would expose what's in their hearts. And this is an amazing eye. And again, you are wondering about them in Africa. Never forget, he believes in what he saw, and what he became. Just because you know, the truth doesn't mean you will follow it. And that is why the worst cover is the cover of arrogance. The worst cover is the cover of arrogance. You know the truth and you don't follow it. And most of them will not feel alone or cafard because of
their arrogance. They're only muslims for the political stability it gives them that's all.
Okay, sisters question. Yes.
No, Obama never came to Medina after he left after but he never came back. He died as we said in Rome. He died the stranger in Rome never came back to Medina. Yes.
Why would they not punish we will talk about the next Tuesday. And it is also mentioned in many narrations, but very briefly, our process never said, I don't want the people to say that Mohammed sauce and kills his own followers,
there was a greater benefit that the PR spin that would have been given
to execute in America home
would have been very sinister that people were to be told, oh, he kills his own followers. So don't join him. And that's a twist to the reality. So out to prevent that reality that would have been more harmful than tolerating them within.
Okay, and there was another reason and that is the hope that they will eventually accept and that was always a process and as nature is always optimistic that people are going to accept Okay,
