Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:07--> 00:00:20

wa salatu salam ala rasulillah carry. While early he was high B he woman severe humble son elomi Dino about respective brothers, elder sisters. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

Today I thought we'd speak about a

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

very important

00:00:28--> 00:00:33

juncture in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi Salaam

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

and in Islamic history itself.

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

As you all know,

00:00:42--> 00:01:04

when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the command to give the dour, openly, so there's three stages, one is secretly one is family members. And then the third one is where the command was to give the Tao openly.

00:01:05--> 00:01:54

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now when the command was given to give the Tao open, he would go to the souks, the marketplaces, are bigger than others. And marketplaces are not like your boring center here. marketplaces were specific marketplaces which were inaugurated in certain times of the year. So they would have huge marketplaces, where all the people would come, they would sell their goods, but not only that, there would be like, you know, women who would dance would come there, poets would come there, wrestlers would come there, they would compete. So it was a very multifaceted marketplace. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go to these marketplaces,

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

and he would get down to the people.

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

And he would say a kulula ilaha illAllah

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

c'est la ilaha illAllah and you will be successful.

00:02:08--> 00:02:18

And he will go from one marketplace to the next from one store to the next to the next to giving people doubt with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

Also, the machinery key would perform hudge

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

so when they would come for the Hajj, so the Hajj came from Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam his time

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

and they had made some changes to their hij

00:02:36--> 00:02:49

so when they would come for Hajj, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would give them power. So he would and this lasted for 10 years. So 10 years the message of Allah gave these people doubt.

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

In approximately two years before the professional lives and have migrated.

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

A group of people came from Medina

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them,

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

can I speak to you?

00:03:09--> 00:03:27

And they said, okay, he said, Do you mind coming down from your mounds? So they got of their camels and they sat with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and these were six people in separations eight people and the Robert is on the line he was a llama gave them down towards Islam.

00:03:29--> 00:03:52

So they said you know what this guy is talking about? We've heard the Jews in Medina speak about this many times. So what would often happen is when the machinery the machinery key word, the majority in Medina, but the economic stronghold of Medina was in the hands of the Jews.

00:03:54--> 00:04:12

So when an ever issue would break out between the Jews and the Mashallah key, the Jews would say Don't worry, when that final prophet comes, we're gonna side with him and we're gonna do to you what happened to our the mood and we're gonna destroy you.

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

You're the majority today we're the minority, but watch a day will come.

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

So the Arabs the people of Medina, said

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

we've heard the about this Nabhi let's not allow the Jews to get to him.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

Before we get to him, let's embrace his D.

00:04:38--> 00:04:50

So these individuals now they embrace embrace the D of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the deen of Islam and they go back to Medina.

00:04:52--> 00:04:57

Now the mushrikeen of Makkah know nothing what's happening

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

so imagine her entire years

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

going past and the persecution is very strong upon the Muslims.

00:05:05--> 00:05:21

You know, this is a time after the year of grief Ahmed hosen of the province of Milan Selma, Abu Talib has passed away his beloved wife Khadija rhodiola and has passed away the Messenger of Allah really doesn't have too many protectors. So then the next year Hutch,

00:05:23--> 00:05:52

another 12 individuals from the unsolved they come they not answered at that time, but from the people of Medina, they come and they are hiding the Islam from the rest of the group. So there's a large group from Medina who have come for Hajj. So what they do is in the middle of the night, they leave and they go and meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:05:53--> 00:06:05

So nobody knows that these 12 individuals have left and gone this is in the hajat time. They're in Mina, and they go and they reach a place called October

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

the place Aqaba there's a mushy day now where the bear was given the battle after battle Ola and the beta activated. So there is a master day just where you pelt this chatons near there, there is a machine still there where they give beta they gave both beds in exactly the same place. So they came 12 of them and they gave beta to the profit some of them they gave a legion to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam so let me just go through what this allegiance was. So about a millimeter of the Allah and who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:06:45--> 00:07:27

there are no by your only Allah hada Okay, so he said come here and give me Bay upon this first. And Leticia Kabila she said, that you do know shirak with Allah subhana wa lo schilke. Yet you This is the first thing the second secondly, when a test Raikou to you do not steal? Will not does no you do not do Zina, you don't afford the Kate will not talk to LuLaRoe you do not kill your children, because in certain tribes and certain tribes of the Arabs, they would bury their daughters alive, they would kill their children. Why? Because they fade poverty and for some other reasons.

00:07:28--> 00:07:39

Well are thought to be bustani after Unum and you do not slander? You do not make up if there are and lies regarding other people.

00:07:40--> 00:08:28

And the third thing was that Sunni female roofing and you do not disobey me if I command you to do anything good. So these were the things was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded so you look at the first one. The first one is about you know Allah subhanaw taala do not do shirk with the last model, the rest, do not steal do not do Zina, do not kill your children, do not slander do not make lies about other people. And do not disobey me if I command you in good things are all to do with good mannerisms. Good o'clock, good morals, good ethics, you know, don't do these things. They have an adverse impact on society. So these 12 people, they give back to the Prophet sallallahu

00:08:28--> 00:08:34

alayhi wasallam and now have just finished nobody knows the people or makhado know, they go back.

00:08:36--> 00:08:48

Now when they go back, they start to speak about people more than last time now they start so every single house in Medina has now heard the name of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:08:50--> 00:08:57

And many people now think you're by embracing and some have even embraced.

00:08:59--> 00:09:14

So come now the next Hutch that the next hedge comes. So there is about approximately over 70 individuals who now want to go and meet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, see those are the numbers increasing

00:09:15--> 00:09:34

for 10 years, nothing over eight years, nothing every year. And if you really if you're interested in history, you go and see how the professor Lawson gave people doubt they would spit in his face. They will pick up dust and never throw it in his face. But it carried on carried on carried on.

00:09:35--> 00:10:00

Now the 70 approximately individuals who want to meet the province a lot later, but there's 500 people from Medina all together, but they don't want the others to know obviously. So what they do is that they in the middle of the night slowly one by one one by one they make excuses to go to the bathroom, vast majority are sleeping and then

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

They make their way to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who's in the same place in Aqaba.

00:10:06--> 00:10:24

So they go and to beat the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in that year they were discussing that we cannot leave the message of Allah in Medina and Mecca all this time. He's being persecuted and Muslims are being persecuted. We need to give him refuge here.

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

So they go to the province of La Salaam and now this is to kind of the seal the deal.

00:10:32--> 00:10:40

To convince the Messenger of Allah, look, you need to come with us. The hegira abode is your abode.

00:10:41--> 00:10:55

So they come to the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and with the message of Allah His old Uncle abass, is it? A bass is two years older than the message of Allah, his uncle, but he's not a Muslim. But the bunny Hashem

00:10:58--> 00:11:07

stood by the province of Los Alamos through thick and thin, although the vast majority were not Muslim, and that's why the message of Allah said, my tribe is the best of tribe.

00:11:08--> 00:11:51

Allah, Allah chose the kwinana from the cannon Allah subhanaw taala chose the Quraysh from the Asian last month Allah chose the bunny Hashem and from bunny hashima la chose me and my tribe, my tribe, my clan, the bunny Hashimoto, the best of Clans, because whenever boycotted for three years, in the Shabbat, maybe taalib it wasn't the Muslims who were boycotted, remember this? It was the bunny Hashem, who were boycotted, and the bunny Hashem even a Buddha, the Buddha old man at that time, remained with the side of the prophets on the line for three years they were boycotted the only person from the bunny Hashem who did not side with the message of aloha Abu lahab his uncle

00:11:54--> 00:12:01

So, a boss says to the answer he said, Listen, I am his uncle. I am not a Muslim.

00:12:03--> 00:12:19

But one thing is that we the bunny Hashem as much as we care we have protected my nephew and we will carry on protecting my nephew you tell me if he decides to go to Medina Will you protect him? Like us?

00:12:21--> 00:12:31

Now I want you here to compare the two bears okay? So the first bear was don't steal don't do this don't do that you're generally ethics morals. Here.

00:12:33--> 00:12:40

The the people of Medina say a message of Allah. Okay, you tell us what you want from us.

00:12:43--> 00:13:00

So the messy will last as I say to you as alchemilla Robbie azzawajal untap, Badu who was to shrink up for the sake of Allah I asked you that you worship him solely and you do not do [???] with him. You do not ascribe partners to him.

00:13:01--> 00:13:07

And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to buy you only Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:09--> 00:13:22

you will give bear to me this is what I expect from you. You will give bear to me that you will listen and you will obey. You see the last one he said you will obey me if I say

00:13:23--> 00:13:31

good things in my roof. Here he will say you will listen to me and you will obey me finish it when

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

he when he when you're eager when you when you are zealous. And even if you're tired.

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

Meaning Listen, you will obey me you like it or you don't

00:13:47--> 00:13:57

want Africa to fill us up while you sleep. And that you will spend it is in difficulty. What I will Emeryville my room

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

and you will give it to me that you will enjoy good

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

and you will forbid evil

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

will intercooler or intercooler filler he

00:14:11--> 00:14:21

the other half una familia de lo metalla him and you will speak for the sake of Allah in the matters of Allah Subhana Allah and you will not care what people have to say

00:14:25--> 00:14:38

while Anton saruni wautoma only in khadim to LA come and he said if I come to you if I decide to come to you that you will stop people from advancing towards me attacking me.

00:14:40--> 00:14:55

Me madam Nana me men who enforcer kumars watch come up now come like us stop from yourself and your families. So you will protect me and you will protect my companions like you protect your own family.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

You see now you see the difference between the first buyer and the second person

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

The first player was generally about morals and ethics. The second bear is no. The second Bayer is now about creating a community, creating a state, creating an environment creating an oma, though it starts with a BBs Allah Salaam says, Allah some Allah subhana wa tada if in a shot you will see that you will obey me. Even if you are eager or even if you are tired, period. And this is what look this is what the deen is all about. The Deen is about you making the effort in times of difficulty and you're rewarded for our greater

00:15:42--> 00:15:49

you come into the machine when it's difficult to come. But you still come to the machine.

00:15:50--> 00:16:10

You don't want to do something for the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala but you still do it because it's the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Messenger of Allah saying you want me to come? Okay, here's my first condition. first condition you do not do [???] with the last one. second condition. You obey you listen,

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

if you feel like it, or if you don't feel like it.

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

If you ever want to create a community, a society

00:16:23--> 00:16:32

you need people who have vigor, who have a passion, a drive a concern, even when they don't feel like it.

00:16:34--> 00:16:41

And they honestly will lie. This is one of the biggest issues that we as the Muslim Ummah have today.

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

We like everything easy. deed is easy.

00:16:49--> 00:17:09

Dawa is what allow social media now for the message somebody sent to you, or you feel if you really you've done your Tao for the day today Mashallah, you read three messages on your phone on WhatsApp which are religious Mashallah your spiritual hype. And then you fall with another one or two and your dow is done.

00:17:11--> 00:17:32

This is not how dow is done. This is not how we sacrifice for the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala we do it in times of ease and difficulty. And if you only doing what you want to do, this is not dour, maybe Allah will reward you shall Allah will reward you. But this is not the enthusiasm, which the early Muslims had.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

And then the poor is Allah Allah wa sallam said that you

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

you spend,

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

fill mostly what

00:17:43--> 00:17:47

you spent in times of ease, and in times of difficulty.

00:17:49--> 00:18:31

Generally, not everybody, but generally, obviously, when it's easy to spend, when we work, you know, you hit your target for the year, and you got your new car, you got your new house, whatever you wanted. And then you got a couple of you know, 100 of whatever left over then you kind of fork out, you know, it's easy. But the brothers Allah Solomon said, No, no, I don't want you to spend when it's easy. I want you to spend when it's also difficult. Look, a lie. You can live alone, often Illa Allah does not burden a sole party's ability. Allah doesn't want you to give everything in the parliament last month, Allah and then you start begging on the street. There was a man when the

00:18:31--> 00:18:48

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, given the path of Allah subhanaw taala. So there was a man who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he had a bar of gold, he said, O Messenger of Allah found his bar of gold in the mind. And I want to give in the path of Allah subhanaw taala. And I have nothing besides this.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

So the message of Allah turned away from him.

00:18:54--> 00:19:09

So he came to the right side of the message of Allah, and the message of Allah turn this way. And he came to the left side of the message of electronics, give it to him. And then as you're not turned away, from behind like this, and the message of Allah grabbed it, and he threw it.

00:19:11--> 00:19:16

He said, I don't want any of you spending everything that he has,

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

and then regretting it and asking other people.

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

Allah doesn't want us to give everything in a bottle of the last bottle and then say, oh, what I'm gonna do for the next month.

00:19:31--> 00:19:48

But alas, $1 does expect you to put your hand in your pocket and trust in Allah subhanaw taala that the one who provided you yesterday, the one who provided you last week, the one who provided us the since the day you were born, will also provide you in the future.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

And this is what the Messenger of Allah said. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, that you enjoyed good and you forbid he

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

La ilaha illa Allah, you enjoin good and forbid evil, if you see an evil

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

in the best of your ability, you deal with that evil, you try to rectify that evil, because that's how every society is created. If you are only only concerned about yourself, then what kind of community you're going to have.

00:20:26--> 00:20:34

If you are only only if the here Mahmoud is only concerned about himself, what kind of home is going to have

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

a dysfunctional home.

00:20:38--> 00:20:57

If the hero moves, entire family is only worried about them, nobody else let everybody but then everybody starve to death. Let everybody go to prisons, no education, no Salah no D, that kind of society you can have.

00:20:58--> 00:21:03

If everybody in acid is only concerned about Aston, and even that would be a hamdulillah.

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

But if we were only concerned about acid

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

the more about the rest of the Muslim in the country, the world where the rest of the country the one about the oma

00:21:18--> 00:21:39

and this is the permission masala saying that you need to enjoin good, and you need to forbid evil. And honestly, I know I've spoken about this a million times. But you know, honestly, you see these teachings in our deed. And then you look at our community who doesn't care, the you know,

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

we don't even compare with a non Muslim. That's how bad we are.

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

Honestly,

00:21:48--> 00:22:03

you go to any street in any of these surrounding areas. And you see on the corners, people have dumped their sofas, their fridges, somebody must have seen them do it.

00:22:05--> 00:22:10

Somebody must have seen them do it. You don't pick up a fridge and you put in your pocket.

00:22:12--> 00:22:16

You don't pick up a song for Nirvana and nobody says a word.

00:22:19--> 00:22:36

You see youngsters, you know, you know, you see a youngster dealing drugs, street corners, you know who the local drug dealers are? But nobody ever says a word. How do you allow your own children, you know, the drug dealers

00:22:37--> 00:22:44

you know, the parasite of society. You know, they're sucking the blood of individual, you know, the breaking of families.

00:22:46--> 00:22:51

And you still allow them to come in your home and eat, drink and feed you around.

00:22:54--> 00:23:03

Oh is my child and then worse than that is nobody else in the community stays a word. These individuals become role models.

00:23:06--> 00:23:22

And the problem is Allah Salam is saying enjoin good and forbid evil. And then he says, Let me tell you the next thing when you do this, when you speak for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, Lata harfield along with Allah him don't care about those who are going to point the fingers at you

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

don't care about those who are gonna say, Oh, this guy's like this. Because when you speak the HAC, people will always oppose you.

00:23:32--> 00:23:37

That is the nature of speaking the truth. That when you speak the truth,

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

people will oppose you.

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

Instead of the Sahaba extending answer, you know, you 70 so people,

00:23:46--> 00:23:59

when you will go back, your people will turn against you, the owners and the hustlers and your leaders will say why are you siding with this man who his own family don't side with? Why you siding with this man who the Christ don't want

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

the best he will lie saying listen.

00:24:03--> 00:24:12

Stand firm when you speak for Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't care about what people have to say. And then finally, the Messenger of Allah says today

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

I expect you to protect me and the Sahaba

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

that you will defend this like you defend your own family.

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

They said O Messenger of Allah. If we do all this,

00:24:29--> 00:24:36

what will we get in return? The Messenger of Allah replied with one word. He said Chen

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

Gabriella, Malika roseola and he was sitting there, and he said, Robbie

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

said what a bargain.

00:24:46--> 00:24:56

What a bargain. You and I would have thought is a pie in the sky. He wants to give us to spend to take on our own community

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

to sacrifice everything and he promising this

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

Something where pie in the sky.

00:25:03--> 00:25:08

But they said Robbie hull Bay, what a bargain.

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

And I want you to go right to the beginning.

00:25:15--> 00:25:30

I want you to go right to the beginning, the Messenger of Allah would go to the to the Hutch, where the machinery key would do Hodge from tent to tent to tent, and they would spit in his face, they will take dasilva throw it in his face.

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

And one day

00:25:34--> 00:26:08

he came out and his daughters aidable he was a young girl at the time, she bought him some water, and she's pouring this water on his hands. And the brothers Allah xlm is washing the dust and the spirit from his face. And he looks up and he sees the anxiousness in his daughter's face, seeing her father go through this. And he said, Oh, my daughter. don't regard this as disgrace. Don't be anxious, don't be worried for I swear by Allah, a day will come that this deed will reach the house of every baked and unbaked home.

00:26:09--> 00:26:58

He carried on for years giving those people dour, until they embrace Islam. And then in the final hudge, the Messenger of Allah stood on the mountain. And then Rita says, I stood up behind the Messenger of Allah. And he said as far as my eye could see, as far as my eye could see. I saw people waiting to listen to the message of Allah said I look to my right. And as far as my eye could see there were people waiting to listen to the message of Allah said I look to my left. And as far as I could see, there were people waiting to listen to the message of Allah 4 million people go to the place with a message of Allah gave unflinching power for years upon years. A 4 million people
