It is said that some of these towers at a height of nine meters, and that it was a huge fortress and 1000s of people lived around it. Now they tried to explain it the way and they said that the walls of this town became too heavy, and they collapsed into a 12 metre deep cavern. And it fell down. But the court and tells us how the town literally, that the earth swallowed it up. That was literally taken down into the earth. The Americans want to say no, no, it was it was built on a weak limestone, Kevin and felon. But the court tells us what happened to the people for sobre la him rabuka Sal tada that the punishment came to them. But this is a very interesting study. And we are
finding now that the stories that are coming in the court, and this is not myth. These are not fantasy stories. This is real live history, which was played out and which is now coming to the surface, even hundreds of years after the time of the Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu salam.
And so the perishing Arabs are the first group and these groups have for the most part perished. The second part of the second group is a lot about arriba. And they are the children of Yahweh robe, Eben Yeshua, in Baton katayoun.
They are the pure Arabs. And most of the linguists and historians believe that they came from the southern part of Arabia, which is Yemen, and that Yemen is actually the birthplace of the Arabic language. And up until today, and different people who speak Arabic will argue with you. But up until today, it is the Bedouins the mountain people in Yemen, who are speaking a pure dialect of Arabic, without grammar books without going to school, that the common language that they are speaking in the mountains of Yemen, and some of the Sahara is a pure form of Arabic, the only problem is for us is they speak too fast. So you have to adjust your ears to speed but if you can
catch their speed, then you realize that they are speaking a very high grammatical, Arabic. And from amongst these petani Yun, they were two famous tribes him er, and cahalane. These are two well known tribes. And from the tribes of him yard, you find in the area of Sunda the present day or northern Yemen. And then going a little bit south, you will find there were great empires like the empire of Saba, that is known as Sheba. And so in this empire, they were able to subjugate water, they built the dam of Marib and the water was coming from the mountains, they were able to control this water. And they had one of the most powerful well known civilizations in the world, at the time, was right
there in Yemen. Coffee comes from Yemen. MOCA comes from Yemen, some people argue Ethiopia, but it went to the world out of Yemen itself. And so this is a very important part of the world. And we will see how important the people of Yemen are. Even up until today, if you look at the cover itself, there is a Yemeni corner. That is how important the people of Yemen are to the history of Islam. In the north east corner of the Arabian Peninsula is Al Hara. And you will find a number of the tribes of Lachenmann number of those tribes in here. In the middle of Arabia, you can see on your old maps, there is what is called nudged. And the nudged are the bedroom, living in Sahara, in
the middle of the Arabian Peninsula. For amongst the HDS is benu, Tamim housing, ie the thief, Banu hanifa, a number of tribes and you will see them playing themselves out within the theater of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they are fierce Bedouin tribes in the middle parts of Arabia, and it's part of the reason why Imam Shafi said make Darko noted fudger every day because of what happened with these tribes in the middle of Arabian peninsula. When the art was sent out, they were being killed. And so the process of them would make darker note in despair against what was happening in the central part of the Arabian Peninsula.
In the south east side of Arabia, is Oh man, going to the south central side is harder I'm out. Will you find bento kingda and you will find in the area of how the amount that the people were famous for frankincense, which is a syrupy substance coming out of trees, which when it is harder than you can chew it liban as gum, probably the world's first bubblegum
also, it can be used as incense
And so this frankincense and myrrh, and the spices coming out of huddled amounts, were being used by the Roman Empire by the Greeks, by the Egyptians, all the way to China. Everybody wanted this because when you burn it in your room, it clear cleans the atmosphere, and it sets sort of a spiritual stage. So in religions all around the world, people were using these, these spices. And so the trade route would travel to the southern part of Arabia, from Hydra mountain or man to Yemen, and then it would go north, up into Syria. And this is where you see later in sorts of kadesh latach Gita was safe. These are the journeys were happening in the summer and the winter, they would go in
the summertime up north to Syria, and they would, they would get the different items and then they would come south,
in the colder season will be called up in the north. And so the second group is allowable, Atiba. The third group is a lot of Al Mustafa, and this group are the Arab ised Arabs. And they are basically the progeny of Ishmael alayhis salaam. And we know the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. And it's so important for us, especially in the time of Hajj. And we often speak about the story that Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam, came out of earth. He came from the Tigris Euphrates region, on the west bank of the Euphrates, and he traveled around into Syria, and then down into Palestine, and into Egypt. And when he reached Egypt, the rulers of Egypt was so aggressive and so cruel, that if they
found a man who had a beautiful wife, if they knew that that woman was his wife, they would rape her and destroy his honor. But but but if the woman was his sister, or his mother, then this wasn't a conquest for them. The wife was the conquest. And so what Ibrahim alayhis salaam came into Egypt, and they saw Sarah,
they wanted to do an evil act with her and Ibrahim to give them todavia. And this is a pious deception. And they said, Who is this and he said, it's my sister.
Okay, meaning his sister in Islam, right? Was his wife. But he said, She's my sister when she was, and so they let her go. Later on through his character and the character of his wife, the leaders, the rulers at that time of Egypt, were impressed by him.
And they gave Sarah, a servant woman named hajat. Now, according to a radical Maktoum, and some of the historians she was actually from the royal family of Egypt, from the royal family of the foreigner of the pharaohs. And, but she was given as a servant to Ibrahim Alayhi, salam, some of the people even say, some historians even say that the rulers of Egypt at the time were a Malika, who are serious. They had conquered Egypt. They were originally from Iraq, same places as Ibrahim. So they were impressed by Ibrahim. And they gave him somebody from an Egyptian family. They were Iraqis themselves, and they gave him an Egyptian princess. Take her as your servant. There's a number of
stories about this. In any event, what is important to us, which is so well known in our community is that Sara, may Allah be pleased with her could not have children. And she allowed Ibrahim alayhis salaam to take harder as a wife. And her job later on when they left and went to Philistine. She gave birth to a smile alehissalaam
later on, for reasons that some historians say was the jealousy of sada we allowed to be pleased with her. Ibrahim left with hajah and they went down into a desolate Valley known as Becca, Becca in the court and still says, bachata mubaraka. Later on to language Becca became Mecca. Because the bar and the meme are letters that are very close to massages very close. So it became known as Mecca. And it was in this desert Valley, as you so well know that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam left his family and by the will of Allah subhanaw taala his wife harder, may Allah be pleased with her ran in between Safa and Marwa seven times and then with the help of the angel, the boy digging in the ground water
came Zamzam and they drank from the Zamzam. And one of the tribes that came from the south of the catani. Remember, a lot of arriba the pure Arabs, one of the tribes known as Judah, Han,
came into the area of Mecca. And eventually, they were so impressed by his meal that they married him to one of his daughter, one of their daughters.
And, and so it is the coming together now in the family of Ibrahim alayhis salam that you see people from Iraq was speaking a Semitic type of dialect, not Arabic. Then you see hajah who's an Egyptian she's an African.
And then you see a pure Arab, from the Judo home tribe is smile learns to speak Arabic. So they are aerobicized Arabs. They're not originally Arabic speaking. They have Iraqi blood, they have Egyptian blood, and they have the blood of the pure Arabs, which makes up that that last category.
later on, after the death of Hodge of where the Aloha are he Mahal Allah,
Ibrahim and Ishmael may Allah be pleased with them, build the Kaaba
Ibrahim alayhis salam called the people to come on foot and on any type of animal to do Hajj or pilgrimage to this house.
Later on his smile had 12 sons
and that is from his family that spread around that you find the tribes of kadesh and you find the the house and the house Raj, you'll find many different people coming from the tribes of Ishmael alayhis salaam, this final form of Arab what is important for us the showerhead here, which is so important for us in this early phase, Ibrahim alayhis salam built on the foundations of the Kaaba that were already there. And they said that other prophets had been inside in this area, but a human smile built on the foundations. They established the Kaaba. And Allah tells us in store Ali Imran Makana, Ibrahima Yahoo De Leon, wala nasrani. And while I can can hanifin muslimah will Makana
middle Mr. King, but he was neither a Jew nor a Nazarene see the nosara he was neither a Jew nor Nazarene or Christian, but he was upright. And he was a Muslim. And he was not from the polytheists. And so when we speak of Muslim when we speak of Islam, and it's so important to keep this in your mind, especially we're talking to non Muslims, that we are talking about the religion of all the prophets. The Prophet Ibrahim is a prophet of Islam. The Prophet Musa al Islam is a prophet of Islam, Isa al Islam is a prophet of Islam, all of the messengers who came to add in the mud, medallion solid, and to all of the peoples of the world, who taught the belief in one God, they are
all mighty messengers of Allah, and they are part of the Islamic message. And we relate to them as one brotherhood. The only difference is the Prophet peace be upon him said and authentic hadith, that the profits are like a beautiful house, but there's one brick left, I am the there's one space left for a brick. I am that brick, and with me is the seal of the prophets and the messengers. And so we need to now take it a step further, in our next discussion in sha Allah, to look deeper now into the lineage of the prophets, Allah Salah, what was going on in hijas? What was going on amongst the Arabs? What are some of the names that we hear when mayya and Hashem some of the names of the
different tribes, which had such an influence on the message of Islam? May Allah subhanaw taala give us the understanding and strength to study this? And May Allah help us to be as Ibrahim Ali Salaam, Hannifin, muslimah Walmart, Canada, Milan mushrikeen aku holy hell de la stop for LA Li walakum wa salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
