Like you will have the love of salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, he was actually he admiring shala continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a siracha Nava, we had the prophetic biography.
Previously, we discussed in the beginning of the eighth year of higit, off the Battle of Muto, because we're moving up. And we have talked about it in a lot of detail exactly why it occurred, what transpired, what the reaction of the prophets allottee system was, to this particular battle and incidents and then the events as they unfolded there. And we also talked about the aftermath of the battle, and how the prophets allottee, some dealt with the very tragic and unfortunate circumstances of the loss of many key members of his community, and many companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that were both related and also very, very close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
What we're going to be talking about today. And now, what we're going to be talking about today is the prophets, a lot of them sending letters, sending messages, sending messengers with letters to the, to the different kings and rulers of different areas, regions, even empires. And the first thing that I want to mention here before we get started, because to some who maybe have read a, you know, different books of the Sierra, or have, you know, listened to different doodles on the cedaw, the chronological placement of the sending of letters after the Battle of motor. And after we've already started talking about the eighth year of hijet, all might seem a little curious. So the
scholars of the Sierra have differed as to when did the prophets a lot of Islam actually send these letters out. So there are many of the scholars such as alacati, who is of the opinion that these letters were sent towards the end of the sixth year of his era after they came back from the Treaty of who they be. Some of the scholars are of the opinion that the prophets a lot of them sent these letters out some time or some point in the seventh year of hegira. And then yet summary of the opinion that he sent them in the beginning of the eighth year of his era.
Kathy Rahim, Allahu taala. He comments after bringing all these different opinions together from obey healthy Bahati,
from Milwaukee, D, and many, many others, he basically concludes by saying that when he left bainer, home and about a couple of macatawa,
that he says there's no difference of opinion. And he also says that it's also
the fact of the matter is that these letters were maybe it's not like all the messengers, messengers were sent out all at one time. It's not like they were all, you know, sent out, they went all writing out in different directions, on the same day, there it is very likely that there was kind of a timeframe in which one after another, the prophets, a lot of them was sending these messengers out, maybe with the gaps of a few weeks or even a couple of months at a time. So that creates more of a scope and a spectrum, a duration of time over which the letters were sent. That's the first thing. Second thing he says that no, the one agreement amongst all the historians, and all the
scholars of this era is that the letters were all sent after the Treaty of who they BIA, but prior to the conquest of Makkah. They were sent during that time period, which was just about almost two years, that they were sent during that time duration from the end of the sixth year, all the way till towards the end of the eighth year that they were sent in between there. And the reason for this, if you can theater him Allahu taala he says, the evidence for this fact is that as we're going to talk about, it's a very long extended narration and we're going to talk about it from the narration of Bahati. But in the narration of Bahati when Hidaka
The the emperor of Rome, when he Iraqis when he receives the letter from the prophets a lot of a sudden, and he inquires as to if he can, if they can find anyone who is from that region and knows the prophets. A lot of them personally if they can find someone and they are able to find a boo soufiane who is there on a trading on a business caravan and when I go soufiane goes and dialogues with Hidaka. He basically says during the course of their conversation, specifically he says not no min goofy mood that in Lana de Maharani onfi ha, that we currently are in a time of peace and a time of truce with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we don't know how it's going to end. We
don't know what he's gonna do with this peace and this truce that we have agreed to. But nevertheless, we are currently in a time and in a place of peace and truce with the Muslims. So that is evidence of the fact that it was after her day BIA but before the conquest of Makkah, so it's somewhere in between there. Nevertheless, Mr. Muslim Rahim Allahu taala in Asahi, he has a narration from NSW Malika the Allahu taala angle that under Rasul Allah He Salatu Salam macatawa cabela mucha illa kisara wakasa Ilana Joshi, well aquileia bodenreider o Hamid Allah azza wa jal, la Sabina Joshi, Allah de Sala Allah He, he underspin Malika the Allahu taala, and who actually says that it
was before the Battle of the battle that we had discussed in the previous session, and he says the prophet to lobby some sent a letter he wrote a letter to kisaan, who was the emperor of Persia Kaisa, who was the emperor of Rome, and to Anna joshy, who was the king of Abba, senior East Africa, and to many other tyrants and rulers of different regions and lands, and he was calling them to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And these letters, and he goes on to comment, just in case this seems a little curious to someone. Why would the prophets, a lot of them, particularly somebody again, who's been following with the Sierra, they would find it curious as to why the prophets allottee some
would send a letter to an Apache, the king of Abyssinia, inviting him to Islam, because we know that he had accepted Islam. Yes, he had kept this Islam mostly hidden from his own people, but he had communicated. He had corresponded with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Joffe had been a butalbital the Allahu talanoa had become a close confidant of his and the prophets a lot. He some affirmed the amount of an A joshy molt on multiple occasions. So why would the process him send him a letter inviting them to Assam, that Najafi and adjust you just like this around the face or that was more of a title and not the name? The name of the king of Abyssinia who had accepted Islam and
become Muslim was us hammer, as we've talked about previously, and he passed away. So the king that came into his place that succeeded him to the throne of Abyssinia that King was not Muslim and the prophets a lot of them said that King a letter inviting him to Islam. But this is not in no way is this contradictory to the fact that and the joshy the previous King had in fact us haima he had in fact accepted Islam and died as a Muslim as the prophets a lot of them affirmed. And the prophets a lot of them from a distance below the prophets a lot of them from a distance prayed is selected janazah for him in the city of Medina at the passing of in the joshy. So that should not confuse
anyone. Now, two of the incidents that are mentioned with the greatest amount of detail are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending the letter to the emperor of Rome. And similarly the prophets, a lot of them sending a letter to the emperor of Persia. These are two incidents that there's a little bit more detail about and that's inshallah what we'll be primarily talking about today. As for the story about the emperor of Rome that that story is detailed probably is narrated, probably in the greatest amount of detail in the Sahara remember hudy. Eman Buhari by and far there are other narrations from bayhealth Ewok ad and many others.
But the most detailed narration is found in the human body. And in that narration, Abdullah bin abass radi Allahu taala nkhoma. He says Abou soufiane told me this story himself. So I got this from the mouth of Abu sufian himself. And he goes on to say that hero,
Ursula, Iraq, Iraq, women kurush. That miracle basically sent for,
you know, finding if there were any people from Croatia in the lands, there's another narration of walking that laughingly that talks about the fact that here's the reason why he was in the bailout to sharm the Levant region in area Philistine, Syria, this region, the reason why he was in this
particular region to begin with, was because he, the Roman Empire had recently achieved conquests, they had been able to conquer a region in this area, they were able to conquest a certain territory in this region. And as a tribute to basically thank, you know, God for this victory that they had been able to achieve. He said that I will go and offer prayers there at the at Jerusalem, I will go and offer prayers there. And he had basically come there to that region for this particular purpose. And he was in this region, this area, when he sends out some messengers, and he sends out some, some, some representatives, send some people out that see if you can find anybody from Quraysh. All
right. And so Abu sufian says that they they found out about us. And Abu sufian himself tells the backstory, he says that the reason why we were there on trading on business, for a very extended period of time, was that the continuous war that we had been on with the Muslims, the war that we had been engaged in with the Muslims, there was better than there was 100. And then particularly 100, where the parades suffered a great loss, a great financial loss, he said it had financially crippled us.
And yes, we were able to secure the Treaty of Davie kind of make a last show of strength and be able to secure the Treaty of her they via but we were very worried about our financial capacity, and to be able to fund another battle or another war, if it came to that. So he said that many of the leaders of Qureshi had gathered everything that we could, together gathered all the investments that we could, and we had come out to be allowed to sharm to basically conduct a lot of trade and business to be able to generate some profits and replenish a lot of our funds. So that's why we were out in that region. That's why based out of Heracles, he was also out in that region as well. So he
sends for us and basically says that find somebody from Croatia who says, they found us they found out about us, and we went to go see him.
So he says that he called us forward and many of his ministers and the leaders of his different territories were there with him. And he called us forward and he called for a translator. And then he said that you come across UNICEF and we have a rajala lady as Armando hoonah. Bian who amongst you is the closest in relation to this man who claims to be a prophet. And Abu sufian said that Accra buena, seven, that I am probably the closest, most closest related to him. So he said, then come forward. And he says that he came, he called me forward, I came forward and he made me sit down in front of him. And he instructed my companions, all the people that were there with me my trade
caravan to come forward and sit down behind me facing him as well. And then he said that, in Lisa Ilan, hava and hava Rajan. For incredible need for Kathy boo. I'm going to question now, I'm going to question this man. From amongst you. He said to my travel companions, my business partners, I'm going to question him about Mohammed Salatu. Salam, if he lies to me, you tell me that he's lying. You call him out on it. And
Abu sufian he says that, I knew that if I did not know for the fact that they would call me out on my lines, I probably would have tried to lie at that moment. In another narration, he even says that, I felt like maybe they might not call me out in front of him. Because at the end of the day, they were they would be more loyal to me than this king of Rome. But I knew for a fact that when we got back to Makkah, then they would tell everybody there that I was not a trustworthy person. I didn't have any dignity, I had no honor. That they would eventually call me out in my own community for lacking honor. Because he said that even in the time of Jackie, Leah, there was still some weird
sense of honor. So for that very reason, one of the two reasons or maybe both the reasons he said that I knew that I cannot get away with lying
in this situation. So he said the first question that he asked me was kayfun so boo faecal that What is this, his family status amongst you? So he says we'll find out soon. So he is definitely a person who comes from a very respectable family. He says the second question he asked me is, has anyone amongst you amongst your people amongst your tribe, ever claimed what he claims? And I said, No, nobody else has claimed that third question. He said that were any of his forefathers kings that were decent.
were any of his forefathers kings who were dethroned? Now? Yes, the the grandfather of the processor was the leader of the tribe. But that was still a tribal structure where there was still a council in a tribe. But what he's more so asking was any of his forefathers like dictators, leaders, tyrants who were dethroned?
And he says no, that is not the case. He said, The next question is from Ashraf and NASA. It's about
the respectable people, leaders, the elite, do the elite follow him? Or do more of the downtrodden. And the overlooked the disenfranchised amongst the society? Follow him. He said, I said more of the struggling in the community. Those are the people that follow him.
So he said, do they increase the number? Do they decrease the number over time? He said, admittedly, they continue to increase the number. He says next question for hollier do I hadn't been home? Certainly, did he bother Adolphe? Does anyone turn away from him? Turn on him defect away from him, reject Him, particularly because of the religion itself? After having entered into it? I said, No, we have yet to see that. So he says that, have you known him for a while quantum tetrahymena who will be popular a polemical, obviously now you don't believe what he says. But before this claim of his to be a prophet? Did you know him to be a liar? Was he somebody who was just not very
trustworthy? He said, No, that's not the case. He said, there is he does engage in deception. Is he not trustworthy? And he says, No, he is trustworthy, he says, but when he made that in that same line, when he made that then Lana Dyneema, warfarin and fear, however, we are currently in a treaty with him now we don't know if he's gonna stab us in the back in this treaty or not. Abu sufian said, I had to kind of get my little jab in somehow I had to get something in because this was not going very well, this dialogue was not going very well for me. So I had to kind of put something in but it was speculative, obviously, was theoretical. And we know that it was not true. Because the profits a
lot of them would not be trade them. We haven't gotten to there yet. We'll get there very, very soon. But in fact, the Quraysh would be trade them the Muslims in the Treaty of her day BIA. Nevertheless, he says that
is there. He says, Why? Well, I'm too much. Well, I'm Tamaki nanny. Welcome to McKinney. Kelly Martin. Shea Shea and Aveda Kadim II says that was the only job I was able to take out the profits a lot. He said him and his dialogue. Then he says For help Patel to move who have y'all had any confrontations any battles with him? He says Yes, we have. He says forgive mechanically Telecom, Yahoo. How have you fared in these battles? He says a horrible Bane and our Bina husi jolly. It's been back and forth. But they thoroughly defeated us. Oh hood, we probably walked away inflicting greater wounds on them
hand up, while it was kind of a loss for us because we didn't achieve our goal. But it's not like anyone particularly defeated anyone. So he says it's kind of been back and forth between us. And alumina when another woman who sometimes he gets the better of us, sometimes we get the better of him. So he says mother got marucho What does he want from you? What is his platform? What is he's preaching? What is he saying?
He says that are good, Allahu Allah to Sheila cobija, what ruku mokulua. He says, worship one God alone and do not associate any partners with him. Leave that what your forefathers used to say, we will not be Salatu was simply Well, if you are a sinner, he tells us to pray he tells us to be truthful. He tells us to be dignified and respectable, chaste, and he tells us to be good to our families.
Right. So beautiful presentation, right? So then he says to the translator, the king says the translator
now say to him, now the king says I will speak and you translate as I speak. So ultra kanessa he, I asked you about his family situation. And you said that he comes from a very good family. That has been the case consistently for the profits throughout time then they come from good respectable families. They come from good respectable, dignified families. And the Prophet says some talks about this in a narration of Muslim Ramadan none of the prophets none of the prophets were ever born out of adultery. They were was born out of marriage.
Right will lead to minica han lamb and suffering. Right so they were always born out of marriage. So they came from respectable families. I asked you Has anyone amongst your people ever preached this before called to being a
referred before and you said no. And he says that if somebody else would have made this claim not too long ago, then I could have maybe said Raja Sabha owning Haleakala who he's a copycat.
He's a copycat. I could have said that. But you told me nobody else amongst your people I've ever claimed to be a prophet. He says, I asked you if any of his forefathers were kings and tyrants who were dethroned? And you said no.
If you if the fact was that one of his forefathers, were maybe some kings or rulers.
I could have said that this is a man who's trying to reclaim the throne of his forefathers. But that doesn't seem to be the case. I asked you if you knew him to lie, before he preached this message. I know you don't agree with him now. But before this, had he pulled any type of schemes before and you should know.
he says, For the RT for the hula Miyako Li, l, caddy ballin as you were active Allah, it's hard to imagine somebody who does not have it within himself, to lie to a human being, that that person would ever possess the audaciousness the audacity to lie about God, somebody who would not lie to a person.
It's very hard to imagine that person one day decide to wake up and decide to fabricate and to have the audacity to lie about God Himself.
Then he said, I asked you if the elite follow Him, or do the people,
the people, the real people on the ground, do they follow him? And you said that the lowly follow him.
And he says that.
He says that those are the types of people that always follow the prophets and the messengers. I asked you if his followers, day by day increase or decrease, and you said that they increase? And he says, that is the nature of faith, any man, it's unstoppable. It's the truth.
It shall, you know, be be realized. That's the nature of truth. It's a light, and it spreads. Right? We've even seen this in our times. Just a little sidebar, little side note to interrupt. We see that in our time zone.
It doesn't matter, right? that there might be some crazy people
in the fringes of our community who do all types of bizarre things. And then there are people on the opposite end of the extreme, but just as unbalanced, who vilify Muslims and Islam, and campaign against and all the media is turned against Muslims and Everywhere you look, there's negative publicity and media about Muslims. Yet, every day every other day, somebody walks through those doors, accepting Islam.
That's the nature of human that's the nature of faith.
He says that I asked you if any of his people abandoned him defect on him. You said no. And he says that gallican Eman Hina to Holly to Basha to Luba
that is the nature of faith and among
when it mixes in with the hearts and emanuela Walker of Alba. Aloha Tabitha takes root in the heart and never lets go. All right. He says I asked you if he you've known him to be deceitful. And he said no. And he said that is the nature of messengers Cavalli Caruso.
He says, I asked you what he calls you to and you said that he calls to the worship of one God alone No, and to not associate partners with him. He forbids you from worshipping idols. He tells you to pray and be truthful and be chaste, be dignified. If what you say is true for in Ghana matapalo, Hakan, if what you say is actually true. If I say I'm like Modi, aka mega hatin, he will one day rule this land that is under my feet. And he was in the bailout to sham. He was in that region in that area.
And he says that I'd gone to alamanda Hoo, ha ha, I knew that the profit of the last times was to come, because it said about this particular King, that he himself was a student of Scripture. He was a student of Scripture. He had studied scripture. And so he says, I knew that there were prophecies that speak about a prophet coming. And I did not I did not realize I did not think I could not imagine. And the who minquan that he would be from amongst you people.
You'd be from monkeys shoot people in some other narrations will also see it's going to mention something but in some other narrations, he actually says that these these wild
You know, uncivilized people, because the Romans looked down on a lot of the Arabs of that time. Right. So he says that I didn't think it would be from amongst you people. He says that if I knew I would go to him.
And I would,
you know, I would rush to meet him. And if I could find him, I would wash his feet, lava sell to me, which is an expression that basically means I would honor him.
I would serve him, I would wash his feet. I would carry his shoes, like we you know, some of these types of expressions. That's what it means I would sit at his feet.
So then he the narration now says that the reason why this he had looked for a boost of yarn and this entire conversation ensued was because he had received a message. The message had come from the governor of Busan, which was an area of shock. There's not the bus right off. This is Busan in Belarussian.
So he had received a message from the governor of Missouri, one of his governors, that a messenger had come to him with a lecture from a man who claims to be a prophet.
And he had sent send this man and with his lecture to me, and that's what had led him to all this curiosity and this conversation ensued. So then he says, He called he said, bringing the messenger to me and tell him to bring his letter through mother abracadabra Sheila sala de semana de vos IV, ma de la Vega, Basra for the for our la Huracan. So he comes in he gives a letter to the king for that fee. So what the lecture said was Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem min Mohammed bin Abdullah hora Sula, he Illa hierarchal of the mailroom, that this is a lecture from Mohammed the slave in the Messenger of God to the king of Rome. Salama Allah manita alhuda May peace be upon whosoever follows
the guidance from God. I'm about to do as for what follows fania Durga BDI, to Islam, I call you to the message of Islam, submission to God, I slipped Islam, submit to God and you shall find peace. Utica, La Jolla, camara Jain God shall reward you twofold.
And this is clarified another narration of the Prophet says I'm the reason why he said that was that was a virtue. That was a Bashara that was a reward that was promised to the annual Kitab,
the annual Kitab, the Christians and the Jews who would accept Islam, that they would get that this was how they were encouraged, and how the man was incentivized to them that you've doubled the reward, because of your previous because of your love and your faith in the profits of the past. And then you accepting Islam, and accepting the prophets a lot of the same as a messenger for a while later, finally, it may seem but he says that if you turn back on this, then upon you shall be the sin of the people. And at the scene basically refers to
the common folk, the common people, because he's a king. So he's saying the sin of your subjects who will reject the faith, because you rejected the faith, the follow your lead,
or maybe will occur to them, but they will be intimidated by the fact that you have rejected the faith. So they were rejected out of intimidation of you.
Or maybe they'll be emboldened by you
to oppose the religion of Allah that says you will also have a share in that sin because you're the leader with these privileges with these benefits with these luxuries with this power comes responsibility and accountability and culpability and liability.
Right? So and then he put the profits a lot he Sam had also dictated the ayat of the Quran diverse from Surah Allah and Ron The Eye of Sauron Emraan is number 64. Yeah and then kitabi to ILO O People of the Book
come Illa Kalimantan Salah in Benin Albania come to a message that we both share and understand and agree upon being in our being Alana Buddha Illallah that we worship no one other than Allah will and Russia and we do not associate anything as partner with him. When I get to see that baba baba or baba mindu nila, and let none of us take anyone else
as partners aside from God, for into our low but if you turn back on this if you turn your back on this for Hulu, ish, Hulu B and amazima
that if they turn if they do not accept this message and say that we testify that we are Muslim, we will stick to our faith. You are invited but if you turn your back on this, we say that we are Muslim. We stick to our message in our faith.
So Abu sufian says Allah, Allah Paul, after he had said what he had said, well, funny humming Sarah till kitabi and he was finished reading this letter, Kathy Rhonda, who Sahaba waterbottle, a sua to
his ministers and his governors and the council started getting really rowdy. People started screaming and shouting, and yelling and arguing and debating,
because the tone of the king sounded very much like he was starting to incline towards this message. And people started freaking out what's going on? And we saw this happen within the Jaffe before.
So he says, oh, Krishna, they kicked us out. They said, Go Go, shoo, get out from here. And I said, when I when we got out, I said to the rest of the people that were with me from Croatia to trade caravan from Makkah. I said to them lapada Amira amaru Abbey CAPTCHA
says Look at this.
He says that because the Arabs A lot of times, would be referred to by the Romans as like a bee CAPTCHA, which basically meant the Son of the Father of sheep.
They were considered like sons of shepherds,
lowly people, villager Bedouins nomads, wandering about in the desert. So he kind of says sarcastically, he says, Look at how high the sons of Shepherd have risen.
In the who you have for whom Malika Bonilla as far
the king of the Romans fears Arabs now.
They feared these desert wonders. These nomads these Bedouins How funny. Right? And he says from us into McLennan, and the who say other Hata Allah Allahu Allah, Allah, Sam, and he says, From that point on forward, I knew that eventually the profits allottee someone's going to come out on top.
I knew that he was going to win this situation now between us until the last panel which Allah gave me guidance to Islam, and I embraced and I entered the faith.
Now, the narrations basically go on to talk about the fact that
hirako at that particular time,
he the narration of it continues, that he woke up one morning, and a lot of what kind of led to this as well was he woke up one morning, and he just did not seem well. He's very disturbed. Hubby from Neff says us baja Yeoman, Hubby, turnips, like he just did not feel well, he seemed extremely disturbed. So he said, so some folks, some of his people around him, his close circle, his inner circle, they said, but it's them come now, hey, attack, we don't like to see you like this. You seem like you were perturbed by something.
So Hirata basically said that he says, I Hirakawa somebody who was very much into
astrology, and the reading of the stars and all this kind of stuff.
So he says that I saw,
you know, I was reading the stars. And what I basically saw was that the
king of the Arabs shall soon rise, the king of the Arabs shall soon rise.
the, the interesting thing is that the way that he basically refers to it is he refers to the Hudson as circumcision. Because the Romans did not practice circumcision. But the Arabs did even pre pre islamically. So he basically then says that who amongst the people that we rule, practices this. So they said that they say that they know Ilya who is just the Jews, follow him on follow you, him and Naka shadow him, you don't need to worry about them. Because we conquered them much before. And he said, Furthermore, there are still some Jews that live in this particular region, if you would, like we can send the letter there and we can go in there and wreak some havoc upon them.
So while they were talking about this, a man,
the the governor of a son, that were some of the Northern Arabian tribes that had basically become Christian and gone into the fold of the Roman Empire, he sent
a delegation with a man that he had captured to the emperor of Rome. And he basically said that we are dealing with something to the south of us, where there seems to be this religion and this leader and he's amassing, you know, a huge number of people. People are flocking to him, and we were able to capture one of his people. And we have sent him to you to basically inquire and find out about this. So when they bring him to the
Emperor of Rome, he basically says that this might be what I was afraid of. And he basically says that, you know, check and see if he's one of those folks.
And when they tell him and they come back and they say, Yes, he's, you know, he's, as you described.
So at that time, hit off, he basically says, have a will go have a Luma.
He says, He comes from that people were that King that I have seen the man that will rise, a leader that will rise and will overtake so then hit Oracle. He basically writes a letter to one of his governors. And he says that, I want you to inquire and get further information. It is around this time, he says that the letter comes to the emperor of Rome, from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And after this entire conversation, hit up, this emperor of Rome, he basically calls all of his governors, his leaders, his most trusted advisors, the people who help him run his empire, he calls him into a private area of place to meet with them, he orders the doors to be locked and to be sealed.
And then he says Yama*a, room halochem, Phil falacci were rushed. Let me ask you,
are we are you interested in victory?
And in doing the right thing crushed, doing the right thing? Well as basilicum welcome and would you like to remain in the dignity and the honor and the, you know, the resources that you have today.
He says, If that is the case, for to buy, you're only having to be
then this profit that has come up amongst the Arabs that we are hearing about, you need to follow him.
You need to align yourselves with him. For hosho Hi, satin hominid Rashi Laila one, he said, all the people there, they started running like wild animals, he started running towards the doors,
trying to break out and they found for what to do the holy heart, they found that the doors had been locked. When Heracles saw their reaction,
he when he sent me an email, he realized at that moment that this is not possible.
He had hoped that maybe if I can convince my core people, my inner circle,
to embrace this faith with me, we can make some type of smooth transition. But in that moment, you realize I will not have the support of my own inner circle, let alone my people.
So then he says, we'll do him on a break everybody come back here in the inimical to mortality, uneven web, how should that the Kamala Dini come? He said, I said, what I said, to test to see how loyal you people are,
if you just defect over to another king, just like that.
And he's a to I see now, you're solid people, to your religion, to your kingdom to your game, to your faith.
And then the narration basically goes on to say that they all bowed down in front of the king, what kind of delicate roshani Huracan and that was basically the last,
you know, glimmer or ray of hope when it came to this emperor of Rome. And that's integration of body. So that's one major story in these letters. And these delegations being sent out by the prophets a lot he said on
the other notable story is when the and this is also mentioned by Mambo hottie that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent and some of the other narrations identified the sabie that he sent, he sent Abdullah bin huzefa even face, he sent him with a letter. This was another companion Abdullah bin Hoda. He sent him with a letter to the emperor of Persia. And the letter had said Mr lackey Rahmani Raheem Mohammedan rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lakisha ottimi pharis salam O Allah Allah manita alhuda what I'm going to be like you were a Sunni he was shahida Allah Allah Allah wa sallahu wa Muhammad Allah Abu rasuluh what are the oka be doing in LA he, for me, Anna Rasulullah
hiratsuka fatten la lune de la Mancha, Hagen
la calf Irina for into slim Islam, when a beta male Medusa Alec. This letter seemed to be a little bit more detailed again because the Persians were Zoroastrian. They were not monotheists they were not followers of any of the heavenly scriptures. All right, all
It's even a distorted form like the Christians were. But still, the base foundation was there as a poor ancestor, either way, luckily, within so I mean in our binnacle, these were fundamentally folks who had, who were polytheists. All right, and there's a lot of different discussion as to exactly what they believed that fundamentally speaking of Jews were more
adherence to theodicy, which is basically a separation of a God of good in a God of evil, a force of good and the force of evil. Nevertheless, it's a it's a manifestation of shift, and that are later, you know, further developed into a belief of different minor godliness and things of that nature. So
so that's why the letter was a little bit more detailed. were basically the profits allottee some wrote Bismillahirrahmanirrahim This is a letter from Mohammed, the Messenger of God, to the emperor of Persia, and may peace be upon the one who follows the guidance from a lion believes in a lion is messenger and testifies that there is no one worthy of worship except from Allah alone, and he has no partners and testifies that Mohammed is a slave in the Messenger of Allah, I call you to what God calls you to, and that is the fact that I am the messenger of a lesson to all of humanity. So that I may warn, I may wake up those who are still the amongst the living and the decision of God is final
against those who disbelieve in rejected belief in Allah, if you submit, you shall find peace, and if you reject, then the sin of all your people will be upon you. So that was a lecture. But the interesting thing that's mentioned is that the lecture had first been received by the leader, the governor, so the the Persians at this time, they had made a lot of expansions as well. And so, the area known as behind the battery, and today that was also known as Bahrain at that time. So, that region was governed by the Persians at that time. So the letter was first messengers was first received, intercepted by the governor in there and behind and he then further sent it forward to the
emperor of Persia, because there was a protocol as well you can just kind of walk into the office of the emperor of Persia be like Hello, I have a letter right you have to kind of go through the proper channels. So that was the proper channels you have to go to the governor of the nearest region and then that would carry you on forward. So when it reached gets into the narrations mentioned, some narration mentioned that he read the whole letter seminarians actually mentioned he didn't even read the whole letter when he started reading and it said Minh Mohamad
when it when he read min Muhammad Rasul Allah, he liked this Ravi virus, that from Mohammed the Messenger of Allah to kiss rod the emperor of Persia. He became infuriated.
That who does this man thing he is? He writes his name before mining.
Who is this?
Because he was an as we're going to talk about, he was a very arrogant, tyrannical ruler.
And we'll we'll talk about this in just a moment. So he became so infuriated by this, that he Masako, who he tore up the letter.
He tore up the letter and threw it at the messenger and he said, This is what I think of your letter.
And the messenger, he came back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and informed him of what the the reaction of the of the of the Emperor and when the prophets a lot, he said, was informed of his reaction for the era. So like salatu salam, some narrations mentioned the process of actually made against him saying, My love My music Milko our law, you destroy you tear apart his kingdom. And in some narrations, it wasn't so much of a duel, but it was more like a statement of fact that the prophets a lot he sent him said that because of his reaction because of his behavior, the masataka Maluku that his kingdom shall be torn to shreds.
Nevertheless, the story doesn't completely end there. Because at this particular time, there was another one of his governors that was in the region of Yemen. Yemen was also ruled and governed by the Persians at this time. So the governor in Yemen was a man by the name of by them
by them. So what the emperor of Persia said any he said some very disrespectful words that are related in some of the narrations. He says you have to be like a beehive that bla bla
bla bla bla, he says that he writes me a letter.
And you know, that was kind of like, you know, only a king could write a letter to a king, meaning only a leader could write a letter to a leader, in that sense, says he thinks he can write me a letter I have no equal.
Nobody can write me a letter.
And so he says that when in fact he is my
slave, he should be bowing in front of me when I enter below. So then he says that kisara, the emperor of Persia, he wrote a letter to his governor by them, who was governing over Yemen.
And he said that I want you to send two men,
two investigators, to go there, to where this man who has the audacity to send me a message, telling me what to do. Send two investigators there and find out what the situation is what's going on.
this governor by them, he, you know, sends out to individuals.
And he writes a letter along with them from basically writes a letter to the profits a lot he sent them, which basically the letter says Yamato who a unsavoury farmer who might illa kisara. The letter says that these two men have come from the governor of Yemen, at the order at the command of the king of Persia. And but you are hereby commanded to accompany these two men to go in stand before the king of Persia, present yourself in the court, you have been summoned by the king of Persia to the prophets, a lot of them. So these two men, they arrived there, they basically first get to thought if it's very interesting, they first get to five Now keep in mind, five is not Muslim
at this time. And five is very much also very kind of an easy because now the Americans have a peace treaty with the Muslims and things of that nature. So the people of five are very uneasy about the prophets of Salaam and the Muslims as well. They first arrived in five and the people are vying for like whoa what are these Persian dignitaries investigators doing here? What's going on? And when they say that we're looking for that man from Croatian this and this and that, where do we find him? And they tell him Okay, you go to Medina. This is where you go. The people of life become very happy. What's up, Shara? Hello Tom if we're funny, who will call the bottom Leviathan of shrew
fantasy Bella who kisara Malika modok goofy Toma, Roger.
They start celebrating they're like yay, Congratulation, celebration time. Why? Now he Mohamed Salah has agitated
the king of Persia. He's the king of other kings. Now he'll take care of Mohammed Salah to someone you don't have nothing to worry about. Anyways, they
arrive in Medina and they basically are brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and they deliver the message. They say that Shang Cha, which is like the Persian term for King molekule mulu, the King of Kings kisara katiba lol, Malik boddam he sent a letter to the governor, the king of Yemen, who serves the king of Persia
that he sent us to you that we are to get you in to take you and you will stand before the king of Persia.
And if you
reject this offer to go and stand before him and bow in front of him for who are Monica limped then you know who the king of Persia Is he serious business so you think about this for one movie cuca comica Oh Honey Boo Boo Latika he will kill you he will kill your people you'll destroy your land. So you think about this.
So when they come to me with the profits a lot he sell them and the profits a lot he Sam basically receives them. He tells them that energy aha Tatiana hadden
says look, you guys have just arrived. Aren't you gonna take some rest? We'll talk tomorrow.
Let's talk tomorrow.
Then that night
jabril Ali Salam comes to the prophets Allah de salmon informs him
and the Maha consolata Allah kissa Ebner who
Allah destroyed kisara at the hands of his own son, shade away. That was the name of the Son of the emperor of Persia, the king of Persia. His own Son killed him in asleep, assassinated him.
And so the profits allowed him is given this news.
So the next day the profits a lot of them calls them
and he tells them that, by the way,
you're King of Kings was going to destroy all of us and kill all of us and burn everything to the ground is dead. His son killed him last night.
I'm not sure if you want to figure things out. Sounds like you have some things to figure out not to be morbid laugh at like an assassination, but it's just the situation. So they kind of respond with this shock and dismay. How
do you even know what you're talking about? You crazy. Right?
they profits a lot he sell them says that you should find out about this. So at that time, these two messengers, investigators, whatever you want to call them, dignitaries, they go back to Yemen, to the king of Yemen.
They go back to him. And they basically tell him that, you know, he says What happened? He says something strange. We went to talk to him and he tells us that kiss his dead son killed him. Crazy Talk. So we didn't know what to do. So we came back.
After he informed him of this, shortly thereafter, by them the king of Yemen, he receives a letter from shade away from the son who murdered his father to take the throne. He sends him a letter saying that
my father is dead.
I have killed him. And he actually says that I killed him for the sake of my people. For the cartel to kisara Well, I'm actually who Allah has given the virus. I killed him. For the people. The Makana is Salomon Utley ashrafi Monahan EMP to bully him, because as I said, the father was a tyrant bloodthirsty he assassinate, kill, murder, pillage his own people, even
the very bloodthirsty tyrannical ruler, so he revolted against his own father and he said that I killed my father for the sake of the people. And I am the king now. And I asked you for huddly authority amendment Tilak. So I asked you to pledge allegiance to me.
bow before me, as you had served my father and now serve me.
Now, this ruler of Yemen, he calls those two messengers corroborates the stories. And at that time, the king of Babylon, he says in the hover, or Rajan, la rasulillah
this man that you went to go see, investigate, look into, he is a messenger of Allah, for us llama Assalamu alaikum. In forest mount Ghana, min humble Yemen. He accepted Islam, his sons who helped him rule the region of Yemen all accepted Islam, and that led to all of Yemen accepting Islam. And shortly thereafter, I live in a bizarre liberal, the Allahu taala, and who would be sent by the prophets a lot he sent him to the people of Yemen.
So they all accepted Islam.
All right. And so that was basically
the story of how
the what basically transpired with the king of Persia, and that's the second notable story about the letters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had sent out. To conclude here, this particular session. What I wanted to mention, what I wanted to talk about here is just the other letters the prophets a lot of them had sent out and who he had sent them to. A third story that has just a little bit of detail is the profits. A lot of them sent half a bit. Even I'd be belta radi Allahu taala, on who to moko plus, who is the king of part of Egypt Iskandariyah part of Egypt he ruled over a part of Egypt and the prophets a lot a Samson hoppin with the letter to him when he received
a letter come by Al Kitab. He kissed a letter, a kurama Houthi been, he honored the messenger. I sent a newsletter who he hosted him himself personally was subtle. raha Elena de sala de Sam, and he sent gifts back for the profits allowance and basically accepted the message. He sent gifts back for the profits allowed him and amongst the gifts that he sent for the profits a lot. He said I'm one of the things that he had sent was he sent a
slave woman Acharya, who was by the name of Maria, Maria cryptopia, who would be one who would basically be with the prophets, a lot of them and she would give birth to the final child of the prophets. A lot of them Abraham, she would become Ibrahim radi Allahu taala.
All right. So that was one of the gifts that he had sent another gift that he had sent was he also sent a buckle, a mule a donkey for the profits a lot he sent him that the profits a lot of them would name doodle
Don't do it because the prophets allowed him to name his animals. Right? very compassionate, very merciful, right so the process would name his animals. So this particular donkey the process of that named him Doodle, and the process of him would use this donkey as transportation quite a bit, particularly towards the end of his time, because it became more difficult to get up on a camel or a horse so a donkey was easier to ride in older age. So he that doesn't that donkey the process of Mr. Ride was sent to him by this particular kingma hopeless similarly even as Hawk says the profits a lot he sent him sent Sonny's been amor another Sahabi. To the ruler, the governor of yamamah. He
sent Allah yBnL Hydra me to the ruler of Bahrain, he sent me the bin Alas, radi Allahu taala and who and Amar another Sahabi or Jaffa? He said no, excuse me, he sent to America in Alaska, the Allahu taala and who, to the two rulers of Oman. Oman, at that time had two rulers Joshua, even Lj Landy and a meridional Jelani two brothers, who are both as a D in their lineage. They were brothers who ruled over Oman together and the center might have been lost to them. And the last And the final thing that I mentioned here a little funny that even Kathy Rahim Allahu taala shares here from Imam Shafi a mama Shafi Rahim Allahu taala talks about this Imam basically relates this from Imam Shafi
Rahim Allahu taala, an Imam Noah we in his shadow of Sahih Muslim also quotes, Imam Shafi about this, that he says that when kisara the emperor of Persia received the lecture from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he tore it to shreds.
And when the emperor of Rome received a letter from the prophets a lot, he said, he was not disrespectful, actually, you can say he even dealt with it quite respectfully. He read it, he thought about it, he pondered it, he reflected on a dialogue on it. He didn't accept the message, but he was respectful. He was respectful, is very important. And because of this, you Mama sheffy and many other scholars like your mama, Noah, we and others, they say that.
Because of this, we see that the fate of the emperor of Rome and the emperor of Persia were very different.
The Emperor of Persia was stabbed in asleep by his own son and the emperor of Rome. Yes, you know, his kingdom would diminish over time.
But he was not torn to shreds. He was not obliterated overnights, the way the emperor of Persia was. And that's the difference between respect and a lack of respect.
The second thing that he also mentions is that when the Arab came to a shaman or Iraq for business, and many of the people there,
you know, started to accept Islam, that many of the people in that region they expressed fear because Iraq was governed by the Persians at that time, and Sham de Laval and Syria Philistine that region was governed by the Romans at that time, many people started to kind of fear that we fear
repercussions of us becoming Muslim, from the rulers from the kings, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He basically commented in my machete he mentions is either Hanukkah cassava, cassava, cassava face or Babu
that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when this when this emperor of Persia dies, when he is gone, there will be no kisara after him. And when the emperor of Rome has gone to No way, no Emperor after him. Now this is discussed, historically speaking, because they were succeeded by other rulers.
So how do we interpret that statement of the prophets a lot he sent him, the prophets a lot, he was talking about a doc in a sham. And what that meant was, once a doc in a sham will be freed from the clutches of the Roman and the Persian empires, they will never again be conquered by those empires. And that is held true till today. And that was a prophecy foretold by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
with that, inshallah, we'll go ahead and end here and we'll conclude here, but this was the chapter about the prophets a lot is him sending the letters out to the different kings and rulers and inshallah we'll continue on forward. In the next session, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to practice everything we've said and heard Subhana labmd Subhana columbium Nick, Mashallah. Illa Illa antenna sakana tabula.
