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

Alhamdulillah Hello Bill alameen

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

salatu salam

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

ala rasulillah he carry woebot respected brothers,

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

elders sisters Lama aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

Today,

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

we will discuss a very

00:00:26--> 00:00:32

pertinent time in the life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:35--> 00:00:42

after spending after spending, which we discussed a couple of weeks ago, three years

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

being boycotted

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

in the valley.

00:00:48--> 00:00:59

So, for three years, the Muslims really had no communication with the people of Quraysh or anybody who came from outside especially the bunny Hashem had no communication Muslims or non Muslims.

00:01:02--> 00:01:13

They come out after this boycott. This is the 10th year of Hajj Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has two types of support.

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

One type of support is the physical support, which was his uncle abou tonic.

00:01:21--> 00:01:57

And then the other was a more moral solace, where he would go if he had any issue to his wife, collegian or the law and ha, and he would speak to Khadija and she would give him that moral encouragement, that solace like the first revelation when it was descended. Who did he go to? He said, especially to our learners research for my life. He went to his wife, Khadija or the alarm on her and she was there to assist him on that occasion. So she was his support at home. And outside the physical support was his uncle Abu Talib.

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

In the 10th year, shortly after the boycott, Abu Dhabi passes away.

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

So as long as Abu Khalid was alive, nobody had the courage to really attack the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam openly.

00:02:17--> 00:02:24

Abu Talib was his protection. They came to Abu Talib and they said to Abu Talib, tell your nephew to stop doing the Dawa.

00:02:25--> 00:02:58

abodo Talib didn't tell the message of a loss a little more and then they came again and they said tubal Talib move out the way let us deal with your nephew. And Abu Talib said that is impossible. When that failed and they oppose the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam couldn't have tried to convince him and that didn't work. So as long as Abu Talib was alive, nobody had the guts the courage to approach the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now Abu Talib passes away

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

a few days according to some scholars, a few weeks according to other scholars, later his wife Khadija, around the alarm ha passes away the first believer in this theme

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

this year in the life of the Messenger of Allah is known as armor.

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

Armor whose means the year of grief. Why his physical support is gone.

00:03:30--> 00:03:36

His moral, his solace, his comfort at home is gone.

00:03:37--> 00:04:03

So imagine this, the man who has the greatest of burden Salalah and he was alone has now nobody to physically protect him. He when he goes home, he has nobody that he can really speak to who can really encourage him. And then this opened the doors for the machinery keen to do whatever they wanted. So the narration dimension. One day the message will last on the line he was alone was walking.

00:04:05--> 00:04:09

And a man got some dust and he threw it over the head of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

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

When the home is on the line, someone would cook they would cook in the open yard. They would come and they would throw dust in his food. They would use his front garden as a tip.

00:04:24--> 00:04:35

And all sorts of make a theater mentioned many many incidences which happened after the death of Abu Talib. Even when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praying

00:04:37--> 00:04:44

by the Kaaba and somebody bought the placenta of the camel and they placed it over his head.

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

And the whole reason lesson couldn't come up from the center and then his daughter fought the battle the alarm ha came and she removed it.

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

It because he will say this happened over after the death of Abu Talib

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

So now the message of Allah has got no protection in Makkah

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

and the way it worked out if you had no protection from any leader you had omarama pop. You had Hamza Werth none of them compared with Abu Talib there were strong men but they were not leaders Abu Talib, whatever he said, went. So the war is a Muslim now thinks, how can he get protection? Who else can he speak to? So he thinks about five.

00:05:33--> 00:05:58

Five is approximately 90 kilometres from Makkah. It's in the mountains. It's actually very cool. Many of the people of mcra had the buildings near Eve, and in summer, they would go and live near life. The leaders of Mk. So the purpose of Mr. Lee was sort of now he leaves it, he goes to five.

00:06:00--> 00:06:03

How does the message of a logo you know, we all hear the story of Omar

00:06:04--> 00:06:06

that he went to Damascus.

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

And he went to Jerusalem. And he went to Jerusalem. He went on a camel according some original coders operations. He went on a donkey. That's it. How does the message of a long ago he walked all the way to tie

00:06:25--> 00:06:34

his hug says that he took nobody with him. And others say that only he took with him is at the heart of the Alon who that's it.

00:06:35--> 00:06:45

So the problem is unless Rama walks all the way to ties, and one of the reasons that he went to Thai food because some of the fam the people of Thai for his for family.

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

There was also a lady from Croatia was married to one of the leaders of pif. So he goes to time

00:06:55--> 00:06:55

and he knocks

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

and he called them towards Allah house to house, house to house. Nobody, nobody response.

00:07:06--> 00:07:07

Nothing.

00:07:08--> 00:07:31

He stayed about 10 days in time units thinking, How can I now reach the people? So he decides that there was the three leaders there was three brothers. Because if I can convince the leaders because he has had no success with the general laity, if I can convince the leaders to come towards Islam, then maybe they tried to follow them. So these three leaders,

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

so he goes to the first one,

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

and he calls them to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:38--> 00:07:44

And he turns around and he says to the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, If

00:07:45--> 00:08:03

what you have come is with the truth, then I will go and tear the cobas gala off the target was cloth, meaning you know, the message that you come with is nothing. So what if what you are coming to the truth, then I will go and take the reel off of the Kappa.

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

So he despondent from this individual, he goes to the next brother.

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

The next brother says to him,

00:08:14--> 00:08:23

could only Allah find you couldn't love wine anybody else besides you? We use the best person Allah subhanaw taala could find

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

and the mercy of Allah gets up from him. And then he goes to the third brother.

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

The third brother says to him,

00:08:33--> 00:08:46

if what you are speaking is the truth. If you are a true NaVi, in what you're both is the truth, that if I embrace your religion, its problems for me, because I will fight the entirety of the Arabs.

00:08:47--> 00:08:56

But if what you have bought is false would miss nothing. Then I don't want to follow a liar. So either ways problematic.

00:08:58--> 00:09:37

Then the mercy of Allah said to them, he said, Listen, I have a request. If you refuse to embrace my religion, that's fine. That's up to you. But please do not tell the people of Quraysh Why? Because then that would make him one rule. He came to these group of people, they refused him he has no protection. In mcca no leader MK has now given him protection. The first thing that they do is that they send a writer to mcca to inform them that Mohammed came to us and we did not accept his religion. His message.

00:09:38--> 00:09:43

The Marisela cillum, according to the vast majority of scholars stayed about 10 days into life.

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

So after a few days later, they said to the province on the line, he said a belief

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

leaves dies.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

So the Messenger of Allah is now planning to leave, but that wasn't enough for them. Not only did they refuse

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

uses religion. Not only did they insult him,

00:10:05--> 00:10:25

they said to the earth change that the low lives and the young says pelted with stones. So the Asians mentioned that the people they lined up like to surface while the person last time is now walking out of the city. And what they did, they took stones, and they intentionally pelted his feet.

00:10:26--> 00:10:55

So they will tell they'll throw stones at his feet. So the reason I mentioned that he would walk, but it would become unbearable, and he wanted to protect his feet. So he would sit down. So they would grab his arms, and they would pick him up again. And then they would make him walk and they would tell his feet, they did have the alarm to try to assist him and then they began to peltate until he moved away until the generations mentioned that his feet were full of blood, the

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

entirety of his feet, they were his feet were sticking to his sandals, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now eventually, he leaves die.

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

When he leaves life and lies, watch this. Allah is watching the way they are insulting is they'll be similar and he will sell them

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

and he says zebra Elan down

00:11:21--> 00:11:32

and zebra il says a message of Allah Allah has seen what the people have done to you. This is the angel who controls the mountains, if you wish,

00:11:33--> 00:11:42

we will command this angel and it will crush the people of type the mountains of pie will be they will crush the people.

00:11:43--> 00:12:29

The bow is all of our lives have declined the offer. And the message of Allah alayhi wa sallam said maybe maybe the people that did not embrace but from their progeny, people will come and they will embrace the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala look at this Pamela You know, this isn't your local gangster your local Matthew your local authority coming to you say Look, do you need help? Are they giving you problems with sought them out? This is a law. No comebacks. This is a law saying to the message of Allah. If you want we will crush these people that progress on Muslim because you didn't take things personally. You know today nowadays,

00:12:30--> 00:12:39

somebody can do whatever he wants regarding the deen regardless of religion, other people it's not an issue. But when it's us there, what do we say? Bro is personal.

00:12:41--> 00:13:12

It's personal. The messenger Allah didn't take things personally. And the message of Allah said maybe maybe their progeny they will embrace. today. In those times maximum there were a couple of 10,000 people in time. Today there is 1.2 million people in life. 1.2 million people in Taiwan who claim to heat who recite the Shahada, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't take revenge from these people.

00:13:13--> 00:13:39

And then the message of Allah La ilaha illAllah look at look at this. Then the Messenger of Allah Allah, Allah lives on the stars to introspect. You know, when you've had a difficult time you hate on everybody besides yourself, that's normally your fault, is their fault is the people courageous fault. They accept my D. So I went to type, the people are typhus gums. They're wretched. They drove me out

00:13:40--> 00:14:01

in this moment, where he's been pelted when he's been beaten, you know, there are the physical scars, but one law he then they are the internal scars. They are the emotional scars, physical scars, never composed with compared with emotional scars.

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

And the more is a loss of love in this state.

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

He begins to think,

00:14:09--> 00:14:13

and he turns to Allah and he says, Allahumma inni

00:14:15--> 00:14:23

wati locked in let the healhty Hawaiian Elena's year or Murakami in his most difficult time.

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah, my

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

booty, Allah, I complained to you about my own weakness, La ilaha illAllah warra lesson, most difficult time. He complains not about the people of Davies or Allah. Maybe there's a shortcoming from me.

00:14:48--> 00:14:56

Maybe maybe one issue with me. A lot. Maybe I haven't been able to do justice to my parents.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

Maybe it's not my parents fault. Maybe

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

This would be my fault as well. Maybe it's not just my children's fault, maybe some it might be my fault. Maybe might not be my in law's fault all the way maybe it's a portion with me as well. Allahumma in the school alayka

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

Allah I complain to you about my own weakness.

00:15:22--> 00:15:55

This was the man who was the greatest died, no die compared with him. No person in history was better in anything than the Messenger of Allah. He was best. He was par excellence above everybody else. But in his most difficult time, the Messenger of Allah, Allahu la escuela Cova wati wa, ala T. and the lack of my ingenuity, Lala lack of my ingenuity. 1400 years later sitting in the UK, we still follow this man's D

00:15:57--> 00:16:02

and E saying Oh Allah, no, this may be a lack of my ingenuity. Maybe I good enough.

00:16:04--> 00:16:21

Well, hawan, Allah nasya Yamaha mean, and my insignificance in the eyes of other people. That Allah ilaha illa Allah, he may maybe I haven't done enough to get close enough to people. Maybe the issue is with me.

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

And then he goes on and he say something amazing. He said Allah, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Nothing matters. As long as you are happy with me.

00:16:34--> 00:16:39

As long as you are happy with me, oh, Allah doesn't matter.

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

We live in an era of social media, where everybody likes the likes.

00:16:50--> 00:17:08

Everybody judges themselves, their fame on how many followers they have, and how many likes that they have. One lucky you have a billion likes and you have one dislike from a lot. It's not worth it. You're a failure. You're unsuccessful. And you have that one light from Allah.

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

Everything else becomes insignificant, but you will only realize on the Day of Judgment.

00:17:18--> 00:17:37

And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's he's walking. And these two people from Makkah these are the arch enemies of the province and lesson of Ottoman shaver. The father was gonna be a Ruby. They are the arch enemies of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:17:38--> 00:17:44

They're the ones who actually went to Abu Talib and said to obatala move out the way that give us permission to kill him.

00:17:45--> 00:17:53

Today they see their own man from Quraysh and they see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this they even their hearts begin to melt.

00:17:55--> 00:18:08

And they tell one of their slaves a deus to go and take him some grapes. So he brings the message of a loss of grapes in the message of Allah before he eats. He says Bismillah R Rahman Rahim and this is a Christian.

00:18:09--> 00:18:22

And he says to him usually Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. He said yes, said my people read this as well. So where are you from? He tells him to know you're from the place of Eunice la salatu salam said yes. said How did you know that?

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

Is it because me and Eunice are both newbies We are brothers.

00:18:28--> 00:18:47

So this man he kisses a hand in the feet of the province and lots of them and he breaks in Islam or one Schaber watching this. And they say to him, oh, a dust you leaving the religion of your forefathers that religion is far better than his religion. He said know what this man just told me. Only nobody could tell me that.

00:18:49--> 00:19:21

And this is the amazing thing. Look, the mercy of Allah k came to the people have time to give them dour. He got zero response from the people of type. He got insulted a bit. And then he's on his way out. And he happens to bump into this man who wasn't on his radar. And he gives him dour and this man embraces Islam and none of them embrace Islam because God Allah is the one who guides and nobody other than luck guides in the color.

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

While a kin Allah demon Yeshua as Allah says, or messenger of Allah, you cannot guide who you wish.

00:19:31--> 00:19:59

Allah guides you ever he wishes. And this is amazing thing Why? Because in the deen of Allah remember this. In the deen of Allah results are not in your hands. The results are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala newer so to Salaam call his people for how long? 950 years. In either otomi Leyland or the hora he says 950 years. You

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

Not from nine to five, in the Dow to Komi Leyland one Ohara I gave them dour morning, afternoon, evening, in the depth of the night morning evening, nighttime said I gave them Dawa, but more dow I gave them more they ran away You know why?

00:20:21--> 00:20:27

Because you cannot give down to somebody who's played whose heart is dead

00:20:29--> 00:20:36

you cannot give them though their heart is dead. The rest of Allah said on the day of judgment and nobody will come

00:20:37--> 00:21:10

and nobody will come and he will have he will have three people behind him all his life he spent calling towards Allah spawn dollar, how many guys three people, someone has two people, somebody will have one people one person expended your entire life calling people towards a law and at the end you get one person the messaging will last at some lobbies will come they will have zero behind.

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

Zero behind them.

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

What is listen brothers, what is the message of that if tell you and I What is it tell us?

00:21:24--> 00:21:42

It tells us that I know B kid the an OB went through hardships, that if you are true homage to the profits or loss of them, then the profit and loss of this story of time is still speaking to you and I therefore the deed of Allah you need to make a sacrifice.

00:21:43--> 00:21:47

If you are on this somehow the message of Allah you need to make a sacrifice.

00:21:49--> 00:22:13

You need to put other things aside, you know one of the reasons why the people who didn't embrace because they had an idol called luck. And the people in summer would come. They would come to Taipei to visit lot. They knew financially they would lose out if they embrace this religion. Many of us have the people of Thais mentality.

00:22:14--> 00:22:44

We don't want to become religious because oh, it might stop me from doing this. We don't want to expand for the sake of the deed we talk about D we all talk about D but we don't want to expand for the sake of D You know why? Because financially we might lose up Oh no. No mas time. Yeah, I love him. I don't you know I'm pretty later. I might lose a bit of time here. I might lose a few pounds here and there. That is exactly

00:22:45--> 00:22:49

the Muslim form of the mentality of the people of Taiwan.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

That is exactly what it is.

00:22:54--> 00:22:57

The story of time is telling you and I

00:22:59--> 00:23:28

there are Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through hardship he persevered so the deen could reach us today. And the least the least that we can take, and the least that we can do in response, because good people appreciate other good people's action that we can follow the Dean of the Messenger of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, for which he expanded Himself. And I don't want to use the word broke. But he worked tirelessly.

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

He took stones,

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

hunger, imagine he had to now walk another 90 kilometres with those bruised feet.

00:23:39--> 00:24:04

You say something really interesting. They said, Dude, the route he took wasn't the normal route. When he went back. He took a route, which is what the what your follow up and what you thought of actually goes to error. It goes to nudge it doesn't go to mcca. They say you know why? Because the impact of the day of type had so much on him that he wasn't even thinking which way he was going.

00:24:06--> 00:24:24

He wasn't thinking he was so upset. You know how upset he was? I shut the Allah on how one said overseas you will not tell me. Tell me in your life. What was the most difficult time was it on? Where 70 Sahaba were parents passed away?

00:24:26--> 00:24:41

The war is the last of them said no. Should I shot the most difficult time on the best view Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't hubdoc when you had 11,000 men was an old Was it the day that his daughter was struck with the spear?

00:24:42--> 00:24:49

Wasn't the day when he saw the Sahaba being persecuted? Is that the most difficult time in my life was

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

when the people job me out and they pelted me You know why?

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Because they these were the physical

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

You what we speak about is the physical scars, the stones, but then they were the scars here on the heart.

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

Those scars, nobody can interpretate

00:25:13--> 00:25:27

this was our evolution in the life of the Messenger of Allah. This was the year of grief in his life, he had no protection. He had nobody really the great sports to support in his life, were no longer there.

00:25:28--> 00:25:32

And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Ayesha, it was that day on dice.

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

When, when, when they did to me what they did.

00:25:38--> 00:25:57

And I want, I want us to learn a lesson from this. You know, when that person comes to us, and they may be crying, and we look at why they're crying, or they're upset, we think, is that all that's making you upset? Is that all that's making you cry? Sometimes there's a huge history behind that.

00:25:59--> 00:26:23

That was the straw which broke the camel's back. But there's 15 years of abuse behind that. There's 15 years of torture behind that. But what me and you see it just that one incident, and we come to conclusions based on that one incident. You know, when we see a sister, now she's got mental health issues. And we look at her

00:26:24--> 00:26:32

but those 15 years that she spent with that tyrant of a husband, or those abusive in laws,

00:26:33--> 00:26:45

and this is the consequence, what you see in America occasion of ties wasn't the worst thing which happened in life of the profits or loss of them. Physically, it was far greater injured in the Battle of a heart.

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

But this was the occasion

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

where everything came together.

00:26:55--> 00:27:13

Oh, the, all the things which hurt the Messenger of Allah, the demise of his uncle, the device of his wife, and now what they did to him no protection, we make dua that Allah Subhana Allah elevate the status of our salon La La wa sallam May Allah Subhana Allah give us the ability to follow his precepts.
